No president should ever serve our country without having served in the military first. The Clintons, Obamas and the like are of no creditability to the USA.

I’ll bet President Vladimir Putin is thanking his lucky stars that he didn’t have any cows grazing in Crimea.

It seems to me if Cliven Bundy was grazing his cattle on government land and not paying grazing fees, like the rest of the ranchers were, then he should have been taken to court and fined just as I would be if I broke the law.

Do you suppose Cliven Bundy and Ted Bundy are related? I’m beginning to think so.

Watching Fox News’ Sean Hannity attempt to put the Cliven Bundy genie back into the bottle provided some much-needed entertainment from the right. Maybe it really is Fox Ruse.

The liberal Democrats say the Republicans only want to do away with Obamacare and don’t have a plan to fix Obamacare. Where are the Democrats’ ideas of how to fix Obamacare’s original promises? Democrat fixes so far have made things worse.

Judge a person by the content of their character, not by the color of their skin. Thus, no more affirmative action.

Usually I have to pay state taxes from what I get back from federal. This year I got a whopping $16 back from Kansas. Was it worth giving me dinner money for my family so the rich can get an even bigger tax break?

Will Gov. Sam Brownback have enough backbone to welcome Michelle Obama to Topeka? The Cedar Crest mansion is a 10-minute drive from the festivities. His usual “having a previous engagement” should be a creative excuse. Maybe the Koch brothers could be part of the welcoming committee.

Please stop threatening to leave the city or state over this or that. No one, except your friends and family, cares where you live. If you want to abandon them, feel free to get lost. You will not be missed.

For those of you who keep threatening to move from Kansas: Do it already. Try New York City. You will fit right in.

Wow – Obama must wield some omnipotent power to bring down Wichita’s aircraft industry just by making comments on corporate jets.

You’ve got to love people who complain about losing at a casino. What did you expect? They don’t build those things off of winners.

Does anyone else think it is no accident GM picked a woman to carry the mop and clean up its mess?

I am happy to see that I am not the only person who hates how cold the restaurants are. I have left many a restaurant before ordering because it was so cold. Besides, the food gets cold too fast before there is time to eat it.
