As the 50th anniversary of the Civil Rights Act is being observed, it is disturbing to realize that the Roberts court is issuing rulings that seem intended to nullify the act.

I really wish the media and courts would stop trying to convince us the gay lifestyle choice is normal. The majority of Americans do not support it. Only a very vocal minority do. No government entity has asked my opinion on this. Do not write in any stories saying most people do support it.

It is hard to understand how the conservatives believe they are Christians when the story of Jesus clearly shows he is a liberal. I guess they do not believe what they read.

An estimated $270,000 to change the name of the airport? How many backpacks of food for hungry Wichita kids could be filled with that money?

I cannot help wondering how many of our local “Eisenhower experts” have even visited his library, interment chapel, and boyhood home in Abilene.

It would be a lot more entertaining watching the White House manipulate the national press if it wasn’t so detrimental to our democracy. I hope someday they remember what their job really is. Otherwise just get them cheerleading outfits so we can see who they really are.

The day after four Americans were killed in Benghazi, Barack Obama went to a fundraising event in Nevada. After attending a memorial service at Fort Hood, he jetted off to two fundraising events in Houston the same day. This man is a disgrace to the presidency.

Our liberal administration runs the government, yet the poor keep getting poorer. The poor keep getting poorer, yet they have things that people in other countries only dream about and yet they want America to be more like those other countries.

Sen. Pat Roberts blamed Sebelius for the website failure. I did not know that Sebelius had the knowledge to build a website.

How does it feel under the bus, Kathleen? Great job covering for Obama.

If you think that the Koch brothers have too much money and too much influence, what do you think of Bill Gates?

Why do we demonize politicians who want to help the poor and praise people like the pope for doing the same? Is there only one right way to help the poor?

Passage of the education funding bill and its inclusion of the elimination of due process for teachers was a completely Republican debacle and may turn out to be the best election year gift the Democrats could possibly receive.

The WWE shouldn’t have had the Undertaker lose at WrestleMania April 6. He had a 21-match streak of not losing. This was very heartbreaking for many children and adults who watched him wrestle while they were growing up.
