The best way to give poor Kansans (and everyone else) an immediate tax break would be to eliminate the sales tax on food.

What voters have been “disenfranchised” by Kris Kobach? Those who can’t procure a proper identification? With everything that has come out the past six years, it takes some kind of nerve to claim voter fraud is nonexistent. Kobach’s critics must part of the voting-twice crowd.

If you want change, vote out every person in office today and put someone new in there. It can only happen with your votes.

President Obama’s policies won’t kill us in one bite, but will with thousands of small, mosquito-sized bites.

Republicans need Obama far more than Democrats do. They need him to be a boogeyman to rally against and a scapegoat to take the blame when things go wrong. Democrats have already moved on to the next occupant of the White House.

If Obama had a ranch and went there nearly every weekend to clear brush, as Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush did, then maybe Republicans would approve of his trips. I thought it was a ridiculous waste of tax dollars.

The Army has a post. The Air Force has a base. When are the news media going to get it right?

Manufacturers have been reducing the amount of product they sell to us for many years. What are consumers going to do when they go to the store and the only things they can buy are empty cans and toilet paper cores?

Think of what it would be like if companies thought of keeping their customers and employees happy as much as the bottom line and keeping investors happy.

Are you as amazed as I am? Insurance companies say a house’s foundation is not a part of the house. Under it, bolted to it, but not a part of it for insurance purposes. Only pocket-lining profiteers could ever conceive such.

If someone were to eliminate all species of ragweed, I would literally not shed a tear.

I am always anxious to lose weight. Except when I am eating.

When I was young I used to get hurt. Now that I’m old I just hurt.

Ketchup is a waste of tomatoes.
