Breaking news: The most important button on your TV remote is the mute. It shuts up politicians, even those with “breaking news,” obnoxious commercials, boring infomercials, endless solicitations and much more. I am an Opinion Line reader and I approve this message.


President Obama claims to get his critical information from the news media. Then why do we waste billions to have a CIA, FBI, NSA , etc.?


If you listen to Obama, House Republicans are responsible for all that is evil in the world. He, however, has all the solutions. He absolutely has the biggest ego in the world to be so deluded.


Attorney General Eric Holder calls for more transparency about the drugs used in executions. After watching him the past 5 1/2 years, I wonder: Does he even know what transparency means?


The U.S. House under the leadership of John Boehner stinks so bad we should rename it John Boehner’s U.S. Outhouse.


Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton are very skilled liars. Probably the best liars in the country.


My wife was griping to a manager during her grocery run. The manager said, “You ain’t seen nothing till you see what prices will be next fall.” Yeah, and greedy corporations, the Republican House and George Bush will be blamed.


So CDC officials don’t want people to travel to the region where Ebola has broken out – no problem – but they are bringing it to the U.S. because they say there is no worry of an outbreak here. Huh?


AARP has just become a part of the federal government. It has backing of the feds, too.


Yeah, we know you’re there, “Kansas Democrats.” We’re just ignoring you because the people you vote for, the policies they enact, and their general lawlessness are destroying our beloved America. Signed: Americans who value our heritage and the rule of law.


It seems odd that pro-life Republicans are passionate about protecting the lives of the unborn but have no regard for the lives of the poor children trying to come to America. A lot of those children will die if sent back home. How is that pro-life?


I’ll help adopt a kid illegally immigrating into the U.S. when conservatives help adopt babies from the mothers who want to abort them. Considering how overwhelmed the foster care system is, there are not enough conservatives willing to “walk the walk.”


A Florida Circuit Court judge ordered state legislators to redraw congressional districts by Aug. 15. Any takers here in Kansas?


How can gas be $3.36 in Hays, $3.10 in Salina and $3.26 in Wichita all in the same day? Congratulations, Hays – enjoy those five extra bucks I dropped on you. Next time I’m expanding my GasBuddy search radius.
