Do you think President Obama’s fear of not being in the center of the arm link in Paris was his reason for not showing up?
After observing the president’s sympathetic and passive approach to the tragic Islamic Middle Eastern violence, I see he continues to “Gruber“ the American public on nearly every issue both foreign and domestic. Is it time for another congressional committee on “un-American affairs”?
Never miss a local story.
Obama wants to provide two years of “free” community college for everyone but cut the tax benefit for college savings (529 plan) accounts. Translation: more control over political indoctrination while further reducing “free choices” in learning.
I’m thinking the president’s State of the Union was more like the State of Disillusion.
I will be so glad when we have an adult in the White House again. Obama is such an embarrassment.
God bless President Obama.
House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell are out of place. Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu knows it is not their place and that he is also out of place. All three of them need to be disciplined.

Open carry, no permit or training. Now there’s a gun law that doesn’t keep guns away from criminals.
Gov. Sam Brownback’s “Hail Mary tax-and-slash pass” has been intercepted in the end zone by economic reality. His fans are in stunned silence.
And how, Sedgwick County Commission Chairman Richard Ranzau, is your personal agenda not misuse of power and wasteful government spending? Take a look in the mirror.
County Commissioners Tim Norton and Dave Unruh certainly have the look on their faces like somebody killed their puppy now that they don’t automatically have their way and are the minority.
Now that Americans’ Ebola paranoia has subsided, let’s get back to reality and get vaccinated for measles, which happen to be a real threat.
The commenter who suggested Sen. Joni Ernst’s only claim to fame was castrating hogs appears to have a personal insight on pigs – male chauvinist pigs.
Many people work for the government – air traffic controllers, meat inspectors, inspectors looking for gas leaks, the scientists working at the CDC, judges, the lady who types your Social Security check, those nasty folks who give you a crop insurance refund. Who should get the first pink slip?
