While electricity, gas and water utilities frequently request rate increases to cover their cost of doing business, I can’t recall the last time my trash service raised its rates. It faces the same economic trials as other businesses, yet doesn’t transfer that burden to customers.

Can someone please tell me why it’s going to take two years to repave 3 miles of 135th Street West between 71st Street South and K-42?

Guns do kill people. All shooting fatalities require at least one gun and one bullet. If you throw your bullets at me, that will just annoy me.

Funny that the same people who want tight gun control measures don’t care about illegal felons coming into our country over the southern border.

It is vital that all immigrants be assimilated into the Borg Collective. Resistance is futile.

There is nothing that justifies kidnapping and executing three teenagers. I’m waiting breathlessly for all of you liberal Hamas lovers to tell us the justification. I’m sure you’ve got one of your non-human excuses.

I thank God every day that President Obama is in the White House and not John McCain and Sarah Palin. We’d be mired in war somewhere, letting more and more of our young men and women die.

Considering the cumulative negative to disastrous consequences of Obama’s economic, foreign and social policies, a do-nothing Congress represents the first major improvement of our future prospects in many years.

America is moderate now and becomes more so every day. Fanatical concepts and causes are for the past century.

Supreme Court rulings against Obama got you down? Don’t worry. According to the conservatives, he’ll still get elected to a third term, take everyone’s guns away, let loose all the terrorists, turn America onto communism, brainwash the children in public schools, and kill off all the dissenters using the ACA.

It’s great to be living in a country where a court, rather than civil or religious war and bloodshed, can solve conflicts regarding our laws. I wonder how long it will last.

Circle the wagons. His impeachment is nigh.

If you hate our president’s words, actions and his race, you may be living in the wrong country and/or the wrong century.

Leonard Pitts strangely omitted the fact that without Republican support the Civil Rights Act would not have passed (June 30 Opinion). I’m sure it was just an accidental oversight. Yeah, right.
