Innocent men, women and children around the world are being killed by terrorist bombings nearly every day. And here in the United States, we have people who are devastated because UPS did not deliver a package on time. These people should be ashamed of themselves.

This country is producing our own oil supply. Then why are we paying OPEC prices at the pump and spending our money protecting the oil supply for the rest of the world? Any comment from the good old Koch family?

Inviting China to invest in Wichita? Makes me think of the ancient Greeks and the Trojan horse.

So, nearly one-third of Americans believe that all life-forms are the same from the beginning of time. I hope they do not plan on taking a cruise. They could fall off the edge of the Earth.

A redneck who started a million-dollar business would make a better president than a do-nothing community organizer.

Phil Robertson got chastised for trying to quote Romans 1:22-32 and 1 Corinthians 6:9-10. If people want to get mad at somebody for calling homosexuality a sin, they should get mad at God. He wrote the book.

A reminder to “Duck Dynasty”: “Does not the very nature of things teach you that if a man has long hair, it is a disgrace to him?” (1 Corinthians 11:14)

I blame “Duck Dynasty” for causing men to think that it is acceptable to walk around looking like a cross between Grizzly Adams and Rip Van Winkle.

Liberals are aghast that the Kansas Board of Regents imposed a strict new media policy that essentially gags free speech in public media because of one terrible tweet by one KU professor. Gun owners go through a similar assault on their rights every time some nut job kills people.

Now that free speech of the “intellectual elite” at state universities has been suppressed, who will debate our fascist state government officials? Oh, I get it. As Kris Kobach has said: If you don’t like it, move.

How can people be customers if they don’t get paid a decent wage?

I’m going to take up smoking at work so I can take 20 breaks a day, like the rest of the smokers do.

To the sourpuss at Target: I unknowingly cut in the return line, but when I apologized it just wasn’t enough for you. He without fault – cast the first cart.
