Maybe if Hamas wasn’t using civilians as human shields by putting military personnel and equipment in apartment buildings and schools, there wouldn’t be so many casualties in Gaza. Israel has a right to defend itself.

President Obama has no business scolding Vladimir Putin for events since the Malaysian airliner was shot down. Obama is as evil as Putin because he backs Hamas and is hanging Israel out to dry.

Imagine there were no religion.

It’s nice to see our campaigner in chief flying all over the U.S. on our dime. I only wish he would use some of the funds raised to pay for his expenses. Air Force One does not get good gas mileage.

Is Obama the “worst president”? Under the two Bush presidents, we saw the worst stock market crashes and highest unemployment since the Great Depression. Also, they gave us three wars, and one was totally unjustified. They also gave us some of the worst deficits in modern history. Get real, people.

Relocate all of the illegals crossing the southern border to the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

I wonder how many of the people protesting against the children crossing our southern border go to church on Sunday and pat themselves on the back for being such good Christians.

Kansas Republicans love having Obamacare so they can rile the voters and degrade our president. What a pity. Their hatred supersedes the positive impact on America that should have been their legacy.

After a long life, I’ve finally come to the realization that it does no good at all to vote. All the ads are aimed at the ignorant and stupid. A reasoning, informed voter hasn’t got a chance against the “righties.”

It’s sad to see our once-largest job provider close shop because Wichita “leaders” don’t want big business here. How many more jobs (are there any left?) are going to go south with the wind?

I wonder if my old inspection stamp was included in the Boeing auction. (I’m a laid-off Boeing employee, 1993.)

I’d like to file a missing persons report for the construction crew at Greenwich and K-96. They tore up two lanes of freeway, the entrance and exit ramps, and both intersections months ago and haven’t been seen since. If you have any knowledge of their whereabouts, please contact KDOT.

I can remember back when stamps were 3 cents and if the letter was not sealed it cost 2 cents. At that time the post office was not unionized. Also, we received mail twice a day. Those were the good old days that have gone bye-bye.

Whenever anyone says to me “you know,” I simply reply, “No, I don’t know. What do you mean?” That usually stops the conversation.
