I now know whom I want to vote for to be president of the United States in 2016: Benjamin Netanyahu.


One ought to be able to point out legitimate concerns about Israel’s policies and actions in Gaza without being falsely accused of anti-Semitism.


Watching things unfold in Israel, I can’t help but think Obama is going to start World War III by not defending Israel.


The threat of impeachment is the best chance Democrats have to hold their own or even possibly make gains in the next two election cycles.


Why are we building a power plant to burn coal when we have plenty of cheap natural gas?


Relax, Carr brothers. This state’s death penalty law packs as big a punch as this city’s fireworks ordinance.


Our low-quality Kansas Supreme Court has made another bad decision. What is needed is a retention vote every two years for each justice.


I’m sick of hearing that “an eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.” Ask yourselves why your hearts bleed for these two cold-blooded, heartless, evil murderers. You’re no better than they are.


I’m furious at the legal system. The Carr brothers are guilty. I want a total of what it has cost to keep and defend them. Anything above $5, the cost of two bullets, should not have been spent.


It is easy to see from the reaction to the Carr ruling that given the opportunity, frontier justice would still prevail.


Any questions about the Carr brothers’ cases should be directed to former District Attorney Nola Foulston. She had everything but a YouTube video of the crime. Marc Bennett needs a very large plastic bag to clean up her messes.


The rash of child deaths in hot cars is the inevitable result of the mandate requiring them to be strapped down in backseat child seats.


When we were allowed to keep our babies in the front seat, no one went off and forgot and left them in the car. Maybe we should allow them to be in the front seat and disable the passenger side air bag.


Hey, people in Derby: What part of “leash law” do you not understand?


New open-carry law, same cops. Fear of the police prevents me from open carrying.
