Students are pushing for free college because that’s the biggest expense they face. After college they’ll want free cars, free houses and free nursing homes.

I don’t deny that Ted Cruz is an American citizen. But by the same standard, via the nearly 3 million U.S. troops who served in Vietnam, I would guess that 10 percent of the population there are American citizens.

Donald Trump reminds me of that ding-dong in your pickup basketball game who cries “Foul!” whenever you block his shot or steal the ball from him or he throws up a brick.

I’m convinced that you will never see a cop patrolling the construction zone on West Kellogg unless there’s an APB for a 97 mph chocolate long john. Enforce the law.

Whenever I drive the speed limit in this town, whether on a city street or a highway, I’m tailgated and then passed.

Dear disabled veteran (with disabled veteran license plate) who has headaches: Please do not park in the larger disabled spots marked van accessible. Signed: wheelchair-bound disabled veteran.

It used to be that majority ruled. Now, minority rules by claiming discrimination. Minority now discriminates against the majority.

When you gotta go, you gotta go. If you have a penis, use the men’s room; a vagina, use the ladies’ room. Others? Pick one and keep your mouth shut. Common sense doesn’t require making a new law or building a third restroom. Go with what you’re born with.

Democrats claim to love women. Trust me: I don’t want to share a bathroom with a person with male parts.

If you are dressed like a woman or a man, even if you are not of that particular gender, would it not make sense for you to use the restroom for which you are dressed? Even the men’s restrooms have at least one stall that closes. Quietly do your business.

When was the last time you saw someone’s junk in a public restroom? Never? Me neither.

Once again this week County Commissioners Richard Ranzau, Karl Peterjohn and Jim Howell spent almost one-fourth of their meeting bashing the media, muttering about this day in history and making partisan speeches. I have a question: Is this one-fourth of the value we get from Sedgwick County?

When is the Kansas Star Casino going to wake up to the fact that it is not only running people away from its casino but running them to the casinos in Oklahoma? It has set its machines so tight that in no time I’m broke.

If I gave $19 a month to every money-mooching charity on TV, I’d be a charity case.
