Opinion Line Extra (Nov. 8)

Obama typifies ineptocracy — a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Republicans want smaller government for the same reason that thugs want fewer police. It’s easier to do their business.

I wonder if Sedgwick County Commissioner Karl Peterjohn felt anything like those pointless, unemployed, nanny-state socialist protesters on Wall Street when he couldn’t afford the $2,500-a-plate cost to get in the same room with Rep. Mike Pompeo and House Speaker John Boehner.

I think it would be very entertaining if there were a separate Opinion Line for the Sports section of the paper. I would love to see comments by these morons who are passionate about their sports teams.

There is no need to be tolerant of religions that don’t follow the teachings of the Bible and Jesus Christ, because they are false religions.

Tried to find a job lately? Ageism is rampant, and no government agency seeks to control it.

The percentages in the article “Report: Tasers used more on blacks” (Nov. 1 Local & State) should have been based on the percentage of white versus black people who put themselves in a position where Tasers needed to be used, rather than on the overall percentages of white versus black people in the general population. In nearly every year mentioned, Tasers were used on more white people than black people. Figures don’t lie, but liars figure.

If you get laid off, the best thing you can do is take a well-deserved road trip.

I find it funny that there are people who feel the need to get their point across by making a personal attack against the person they disagree with. Name-calling and trying to demean others does not strengthen your argument. Just because you disagree with someone does not mean it is OK to slander or libel him. If that is the only way you know how to function, then you need to re-evaluate your stance.

Do you ever feel like you’re an extra in a self-centered person’s movie? At present I’m an extra in two other folks’ movies. Time for a change.
