It seems as though President Obama has the transformation and change he wanted. He has successfully transformed the United States into a second-rate power with his Third World ideals.

Obama’s “My Brother’s Keeper” program is racism from the top. Some people would be rioting had he suggested a program aimed at only whites.

I was surprised to see Obama blame global warming for the bad weather. He usually blames Bush or anti-Islamic videos for stuff.

“Creationists don’t believe in dinosaurs and fossils,” said no one ever.

All bills should be voted upon. Let them stand or fall on their own merits. I tire of politicians not doing their jobs. Remember at election time.

My father always started any discipline with, “This hurts me more than it hurts you.” Well, I can tell you that I felt it and to this day will think twice before I stray from being on the straight and narrow. Spanking works.

What’s wrong with Kansas? We let lobbyists like the American Religious Freedom Program write our new state laws when we have legislators who are paid by the taxpayers to do it.

With all the craziness popping up in the Kansas Legislature, I won’t be surprised when Ted Nugent shows up in Topeka.

Kansas politicians could learn a valuable lesson from the Shockers basketball team: It’s amazing what can be accomplished when you don’t care who gets the credit.

I do not know one KU fan who is unhappy about the WSU winning streak or even the Final Four last year. However, we are disappointed at the trash talk coming from the WSU fan base. Can’t fans be happy for their own success without being rude or mean-spirited?

The game of soccer involves two or three players chasing after a ball while 19 or 20 other players mostly stand or stroll around and watch. If soccer is an Olympic event, then ice dancing absolutely is an Olympic event, too.

Thank you to the man who bought my 4-year-old son Milk Duds at the movies on Sunday. It was a wonderful lesson in kindness for all my kids.

When I was little, a bottle of pop was a treat restricted to weekends only, and even then I had to share a bottle with my two brothers. There was a lifestyle for you.

Bless the beasts and the children.
