It’s only mid-June and I’m already sick of Pat Roberts’ and Mike Pompeo’s campaign commercials. I’ll probably be comatose by Election Day.

If Mike Pompeo thinks he is running against Obama for Congress, he should at least get his facts correct. He only appeals to those who do not read.

So Todd Tiahrt was for the NSA before he was against the NSA? Typical politician. Tiahrt will do and say anything to get re-elected. That’s reason enough to not vote for him.

First, Tiahrt versus Pompeo, now Brad Pistotnik versus Brian Pistotnik (June 17 Business Today). This summer is going to be entertaining. I’m just giddy with excitement.

Are we supposed to believe, in the era of NSA snooping and multiple backups, that the ones who hold our tax information and can ruin an American life overnight can’t find e-mails? It is way past due that we have three words for the IRS: You. Are. Finished.

I hope my prior year tax files were on Lois Lerner’s computer.

The truth of the outrageous use of not only the IRS but also the Justice Department by the Democrat Party to limit free speech and harm political opponents will shock even the most dedicated left-winger. Corruption has taken over the hearts and minds of the Democrats.

Let me get this right – Bush signs an executive order mandating that all U.S. troops be withdrawn by a certain date. Obama, bound by law, follows that order. Yet he is to blame for bringing U.S. troops home, which every elected official in Washington was demanding.

Hillary Clinton is practicing her verbal skills as she prepares for her next campaign. Talk, talk, talk. She did not impress as secretary of state. The Democrats should move on.

If the type of people who call 911 regarding the rain, court dates and McDonald’s mistakes are the same type of people voting in state elections, it's no wonder we ended up with Sam Brownback as governor.

In Kansas the rich get richer as lesser prairie chickens get fewer.

In this politically correct society, I’m deeply offended by the Fighting Irish of the University of Notre Dame. I’m Irish and not a fighter. I demand that the university stop demeaning all who have Irish heritage with this team mascot and name.
