Israel has been more than tolerant of Hamas sending thousands of rockets and missiles into Israeli cities. Israel has every right to fight back and turn the Gaza Strip into a parking lot if it wants, as long as the Palestinians allow Hamas to stay.

Why should we be surprised if Russian President Vladimir Putin is covering up the MH17 atrocity? President Obama is doing the same thing with Benghazi, Fast and Furious, the IRS and the VA. It seems both presidents believe they can do whatever they want with no consequences.

I really am disgusted with the hate shown toward President Obama. Where do people get off calling him a liar and saying all of the hateful things about him?

Thank God we have Kris Kobach to protect us from the swarm of immigrant children who are rushing in to vote for Obama and keep him in office forever.

I think I’m going to have to get a restraining order against Pat Roberts. He just keeps calling me and calling me. I think he is stalking me.

Sen. Pat Roberts and Rep. Mike Pompeo both gave Obama trillions to spend. They don’t tell you everything.

The debate between Mike Pompeo and Todd Tiahrt was terrible. All they did was trash each other. At best Tiahrt won, as Pompeo is a very poor speaker. There is not anyone to really be for.

The TV commercials “approved” by Pompeo and Roberts make me gag. They’re against wind energy? These gasbags are a source of wind energy. Also, merely voting against and “hoping” to repeal are not accomplishments. How about addressing middle-class jobs, job outsourcing and equal pay for women?

Does it seem strange to anyone else that Tiahrt ran for Congress largely on a term-limit platform, stayed in office past his suggested limit, made an unsuccessful Senate run and is now running for his old seat?

Tiahrt and Pompeo must have different definitions of the word “fight.” The only one who fought for the aircraft industry is Tiahrt.

It seems to me that Pompeo’s old Army boots should be running for Congress.

My family and I just spent two weeks traveling. Upon our return home, we noticed how embarrassingly rough Wichita's streets are compared with other cities. Enough big attractions, City Council: Get back to basics.
