Vanity Fair is the publication that dragged out Monica Lewinsky, most likely with Hillary Clinton’s blessing. Talk about it now and and it’s over and done with, not to be a distraction in the 2016 election cycle.

Mitt Romney is back. He’s like a bad penny. How many times do the American people have to reject him and his ideology? Can’t he take a hint? If he wants to preserve any sense of dignity, he needs to go back to his hidey-hole and stay there.

Speaker John Boehner and his boys are like grade-schoolers searching for any Benghazi-like distraction to use as an excuse to avoid real work. If their true goal is to accomplish nothing, why don’t they save taxpayers a bundle and literally do nothing?

White-collar extremism is responsible for more hardened students. These new students are simply not interested in the white-collar song and dance anymore. In other words, the dangling carrot needs to be replaced with some fresh incentives.

Google and the NSA are very much the same in that they both want all the private information they can dig up on us. Use Google at your own risk.

Dear Oklahoma: Justice delayed is justice denied.

Regarding the recent food drive: I filled my blue plastic bag with canned goods and it was never picked up. Many friends say the same happened in their neighborhood. What gives?
