I believe all political ads on TV should be preceded by a Preparation H ad and followed by an antidiarrheal ad.


I find it sad that not one political ad I have seen mentioned any idea on improving this country. If you want my vote, tell me what you are going to do to turn our society around. Don’t just try to convince me you are the lesser of two evils.


If your decision at the ballot box is based upon the political ads that you have seen on television, you are an uninformed voter.


I keep seeing people bashing Americans for Prosperity. What about the unions? George Soros? Warren Buffett? It sounds like Democrats are mad about getting beaten at their own game.


Anyone running for office and still stating he is going to repeal Obamacare does not get my vote. If you say you are going to fix, edit or repair it, then fine. But it is a law. Get over it.


After another summer of other people feeding your children, it’s time to get in line for those free school supplies and clothes. And don’t forget to sign up for those free school lunches. We wouldn’t want the children you produced to miss out on throwing away food at lunchtime.


While in Kansas City, President Obama told the crowd, “Imagine how much further along we’d be, how much stronger our economy would be, if Congress was doing its job.” Yep, and you don’t have to imagine how bad off we are because of Obama doing his job.


How do you tell the difference between a Republican and a Democrat? Republicans sign their checks on the front. Democrats sign their checks on the back.


Human resources managers should offer feedback by using traffic light communication. An explanation would not be necessary if they would just check one of three indicating circles: Go for it, an outside chance, or stop hoping. This would help job searchers tremendously.


My “midyear” resolution is to slow down to the speed limit when I see you riding my bumper. Once I see you start to pass, I will speed up 10 mph, just to make sure you can’t pass me.


Why are Wichita’s pretty new buses running on diesel fuel instead of natural gas?


Why do your grown children have to look for messages on their cellphone every three minutes but expect you to believe they didn’t see the message you sent and wanted an answer to?
