See, Republicans – if you don’t stop this “he who would be king” the first time he overreaches with his executive orders, they get worse. Now comes an unconstitutional action on immigration. You stop him with impeachment, not with a lawsuit.

I love the Republicans. They claim to be pro-life and want to eliminate abortions. In the next sentence, they complain about the children of the poor and disadvantaged needing public assistance. Do you see any irony here?

Right to life is much different from the “right” to illegally enter another nation and expect to be given equal opportunity. But that’s just emotional, bleeding-heart, non-logical liberal thinking for you.

For you it’s DNR: “do not resuscitate.” For America it’s DNR: “do-nothing Republicans.” Same initials, same results.

If you are going to donate to the Democratic Party fund bucket, make sure to notice your president took the bottom out of it.

If President Obama were a spokesman for my company, he would be fired for being immature and unprofessional.

So many people fail to understand that the constitutional right to freedom of speech is not dependent on whether one votes or not. If you don’t vote, you still have the right to give an opinion.

I keep hearing and reading that the majority of Kansans object to Obamacare. However, I have not heard of or seen any surveys or polls to support such a statement. What is going on?

The political robocalls are as obnoxious as the credit card robocalls.

All the negative rhetoric by the election ads substantiates the fact that the politicians have accomplished nothing to be proud of during their time in office.

It’s insane to bring someone with Ebola back to the U.S., but guess which party pushed it? You guessed it, the Democrats.

Thugs are using hijacked vehicles to kill people now. Maybe we should require all law-abiding citizens to register and license all vehicles to stop this. Oh, wait – we already do.

You are a real piece of work, tearing up political signs and throwing them down on the riverbank. I, and probably others, took notice of who you were obviously against, and I will just say that lowlife behavior may not have worked in your favor.

Since Israel withdrew from Gaza in 2005, Hamas has fired thousands of missiles at Israel cities. They have dug dozens of tunnels to attack Israeli civilians, and they have killed hundreds of Israeli civilians using suicide bombings. Yet, unbelievably, John Kerry fails to stand with Israel.

“A Clockwork Orange” by Stanley Kubrick (1971) should be mandatory viewing for all NSA, CIA or similar government employees, so they’ll realize just how wrong things can go even when they are certain their actions are in the best interest of our country.
