Skilled workers looking for jobs seem to be discriminated against by employers because of their age or past wages. People need jobs to keep this economy going, people.

Come on, Cessna – “Sovereign+”? Why not just make the jump up to “Potentate”?

So an analyst thinks it would be a “win-win-win” for Spirit AeroSystems to outsource fabrication operations. Maybe for everyone but the workers who will lose their jobs or have their wages cut, like in 2005 when Boeing Wichita was sold. And the steady decline of the middle class continues.

What city wouldn’t be the least congested (June 11 Eagle) when it flings out mini pseudo-cities while eating up farmland, extending utility lines farther and farther, and increasing driving distances? Talk about sustainable planning.

If you have never been the victim of an unplanned pregnancy, your mother’s or your own, your opinion on abortion rights has no validity.

These days when a politician says “the buck stops here,” he is usually pointing at his own pocket.

How many seniors on Medicare have discovered that Obama lied again when he said there would be no changes for them?

Democratic voters in Nevada selected “none of the above” in the primary election for governor. That pretty much summarizes most voters’ feelings across the nation.

Christmas is over. You can at very least turn off the Christmas lights. Don’t use the excuse you are “keeping Christmas,” because you do that in your head and in your heart, not with lights.
