In the case of torture, the USA has always believed the end does not justify the means. That was until Dick Cheney turned George W. Bush to the dark side. President Obama’s humble admission is the painfully necessary first step back into the light.

Add one more act of treason to the list for Obama. Once again he told the enemy his military plans in Iraq by letting them know ahead of time that they would be attacked from the air.

Why all the worry about moderate Republicans? Where are the moderate Democrats? Is it because there are none – they are all liberals?

If you are a valid American voter, it’s up to you to keep up with the Kansas voting regulations and where you can vote in person. Don’t blame Kris Kobach for your own lack of interest in getting updated voting information. Think about voting by mail.

Bob Dole and Pat Roberts have always been career-oriented professional political hacks. That they are older and know how to tell self-deprecating jokes doesn’t make up for the fact that their entire careers were spent as big business lackeys to the detriment of the middle class.

Downgraded by Moody’s and, three months later, downgraded by Standard & Poor’s. The state of Kansas is on a glide path to economic disaster. The governor’s response is that these agencies do not like tax cuts. Of course they don’t when those cuts put us in a position where we cannot pay our bills.

Gov. Sam Brownback is coming out early with his negative TV ads. Could that be because he has nothing positive to campaign on?

Dear TV commercials: Don’t think that aligning Paul Davis with President Obama will make me vote for Sam Brownback. I won’t.

Will someone please speak up and tell us who caused the chloride contamination of Wichita’s water supply?

Did the city consider the homophobic beliefs of one of the food vendors picked for the airport?

Thank you, QuikTrip, for making non-ethanol fuel easily available. It’s time to end this government-sanctioned welfare program for farmers and big ethanol plants.

If evolution created a majority of humans with one extra eye, that would be a new acceptable norm. Similarly, recent hailstorms have left Wichita autos with cute little dings. These dimpled darlings should be left untouched and accepted as the new norm, a proud trademark of our cow town.
