All fireworks require is common sense. Getting drunk and shooting aerial shells in a small cul-de-sac at 1 a.m. does not qualify.


The city can’t find stolen property, but the owners can. The city can’t serve thousands of outstanding warrants, can’t make people mow their grass, can’t enforce fireworks laws. I want a tax refund and someone else running the city.


I have major burning pain issues in three parts of my body. I’ve had many procedures and medications to no avail. The medical profession does not know anything else to try. I would give anything for medical marijuana to be legalized in Kansas so I could try it.


Legalize pot. Outlaw alcohol.


I was going to reregister as an independent after decades as a Republican, but I’ll stick around long enough so I can vote against Todd Tiahrt and Milton Wolf.


If former Rep. Todd Tiahrt is pro labeling of GMOs, he has my vote. Studies cast doubt on the safety of food produced from genetically modified crops.


A vote for Rep. Mike Pompeo is a vote for Rep. John Boehner to be House speaker and, thus, a vote for illegal immigrant amnesty.


Thanks to all the negative ads running day and night, I have decided that neither Tiahrt nor Pompeo is fit for public office.


The media are making a big deal out 10,000 or so juveniles a year crossing the border into the USA. They need to realize there are already 12 million immigrants in the USA. An extra 10,000 is a drop in the bucket, and there are more important things to take care of.


We are being invaded on our southern border by illegal immigrants. The law needs to be changed quickly so that you can deport children on the spot.


I used to think that Janet Reno was the worst attorney general ever. After experiencing Eric Holder, I think I’d welcome her back.


Obama berated President Bush for just flying over New Orleans after Katrina but he states that he doesn’t need to go to the border to know what is going on. All he needs is a big red nose and big shoes to look like the clown he is.


Imagine my surprise when I entered the car tag office on Woodlawn and was waited on immediately. I was done in less than five minutes. Last year I waited more than four hours at the Maize office. Now I know where to go.


All forms of contraception are cheaper than any of the following: having a child, raising a child, paternity or custody disputes, child support.


TV stations: Do not put thunderstorm warnings and watches at the bottom of the screen all the time, but perhaps for 30 seconds every five minutes. Those of us who use closed captions cannot always read them. People in Kansas are used to thunderstorms.
