Wichita police officers: When you have your windshield wipers on, you must have your headlights on. This is the state law since 2006.

I was excited to see all the new paving going on streets in Wichita. Looks nice but rides rough. More of the same old, same old.

Hooray for Hobby Lobby and its exemption from including birth control coverage for its employees under Obamacare. I am so happy for it that I am heading over to Michaels to spend my money there.

I recently started watching Fox News and learned I could hear “both” sides of every story and make up my own mind about them.

President Obama “took the training wheels off the new Iraqi government far too early.” Now look at the mess we’re in.

I have observed the Republican platform for nearly 90 years and one thing never changes: Hooray for Wall Street and to heck with Main Street.

The politically correct/specious judicial activist argument that denying gays the right to marry violates the basic human rights of a minority deliberately ignores the distinction between natural (God-given) and government-allotted rights.

When Fred Phelps died, one demon of bigotry went away.

Have you noticed that the majority of officials in the IRS scandal are significant donors to Democrat politicians in general and our president in particular? Is it just “another phony scandal hatched by the Republicans,” or is there a pattern here? Methinks a pattern.

If possible, I’d like to know how much the Koch brothers saved with the change in Kansas income tax law.

I don’t understand Sen. Pat Roberts’ ad saying he upholds the Constitution. His banter proves otherwise. The Affordable Care Act passed in Congress by legislators who were duly elected by their constituents. If that’s unconstitutional, it’s time our votes be cast for his retirement.

Mike Pompeo states he’s for Kansas, and together we can make a difference, yet he boasts he’s voted against Obamacare 57 times. Even though those two things are very incongruous with each other, his statements are understandable. After all, poor people don’t make significant campaign contributions.

The Democrats are hollering over questions about Hillary Clinton’s health – the very same Democrats who questioned Reagan’s health when he ran for president at the same 69 years of age she will be when she runs again. Talk about hypocrites.

Don’t get your undergarments in a wad: Hillary Clinton will never be president.

We are the federal government in that we pay federal taxes of all kinds. If illegal immigrants are not paying, it is because their “law-abiding citizen” employers are either not withholding or are paying under the table.
