If we don’t face ISIS now, your children and grandchildren will be destined for a military career.

Another Pakistani woman beaten to death by her family. Tell me again why we give this brutal, backward, terroristic country billions in aid. The only thing we should be giving it are bombs delivered by stealth bombers.

My landlord owes more than $150,000 (five years of property tax) on the building where I am a tenant. He does not care about publications in the paper. I do not like paying rent to a deadbeat landlord. Why not foreclose on such properties? Where is the enforcement?

My neighbor has two motorcycles, three cars, two trucks and a large boat, all with Oklahoma tags. He says he is borrowing them from his son who lives in Oklahoma. Kansas tax problem solved.

A 20-year-old unarmed white man was shot and killed by a black police officer in Utah. True, another tragedy, but it barely was mentioned in the media. Shouldn’t it work both ways?

I don’t trust any politician who won’t release their tax returns. I won’t vote for Kris Kobach.

Kobach doth protest too much over not releasing his tax records. Perhaps he doesn’t want Kansans to see how much he’s making on projects that have nothing to do with Kansas.

So Kobach thinks it’s “silly” and “intrusive” to release his tax returns. It’s no sillier than his laughable claim that he spends fewer than five hours a week of his own time running all over the country making sure folks in other states join the 18,000 Kansans who can’t vote.

It will be be a great day when Gov. Sam Brownback and Kobach get voted out of office. Let’s make sure it happens this November. Vote.

“A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.” Well regulated.

Mr. President, we are on to your juvenile games. You have Harry Reid block all bills from the House so you can blame the Republicans for not doing anything. Please let the system work as designed.

The Democrats blame Republicans for everything. They use scare tactics. They have no accomplishments to run on, so they blame others or distract. The Democrats’ war on women is free birth control and abortions so they have no responsibility.

President Obama and Eric Holder should move to Hollywood. They already live in a make-believe world.

AARP sold you out to Obamacare. Good luck to that.

How about someone running for the House of Representatives just saying, “I promise I will represent you, the people, in Washington”? Wouldn’t that be nice?
