We’ve had eight terms, 16 years, of Todd Tiahrt. Enough already. It’s time for him to simply go away – and this is from a conservative Republican.


Even if Republicans win the Senate and hold the House this year, Obamacare will not be repealed; the VA and IRS will remain incompetent and broken. We will hear “Benghazi, Benghazi, Benghazi” all the time, and nothing of substance will get done.


Can Iran be trusted? Of course not. Can President Obama be trusted? Apparently not. Any other answer is simply misinformed.


Susan Rice would be better off going to church Sunday morning than going on network talk shows.


Once again Obama and his Democrat cronies attempt a scheme to make themselves look good by trading Bowe Bergdahl for five murderers, and of course they failed because they do not and will never understand the words “truth,” “honor” and “justice.”


One definition of insanity might be a president repeatedly seeking congressional approval for commonsense ideas while knowing he’ll never get it. Thank goodness President Obama, who is likely the most sane person in Washington, has decided it’s time to sidestep the grandstanding congressional crazies there.


I keep hearing from the current administration that “we don’t leave Americans behind.” When did that start? Glad to know that no one was left behind in World War I, World War II, Korea or Vietnam.


Obama has repeatedly breached his oath of office. He has actively attempted to subvert, ignore and completely destroy large parts of the Constitution and should be impeached.


Why stop at golf courses? Let’s use some commonsense alternatives. Ban fescue and bluegrass lawns and incentivize replacing them with dry weather grasses or xeriscaping. Southwestern states make it work.


If the federal tax changes are responsible for Kansas missing revenue expectations, wouldn’t you have expected these people in office to have planned for that?


The headline reads, “Who should J. Lo date next?” Lucky for her I am available. If she is into fat, old men. Have your people call my people.


I either mute or change channels on commercials. Do other viewers pay attention to commercials? Or do advertisers just waste money on these commercials?


Ladies, if your man won’t open the door for you, dump him. He’s a loser.


Take a little time each day and turn off the phones, computer and TV, and just sit quietly and think. Your soul needs it.


On whether customers who do not return their shopping carts to the proper spot are lazy and selfish: I am handicapped. If I use a cart I found in the parking lot, I feel perfectly justified in leaving it there. Not everything is what it seems.
