The objective is not to own the most toys in the world before one dies but rather to have played with the most toys while you were still young enough to have enjoyed them.
Why is it that an alleged child molester gets bail set at an attainable amount? There should be no chance of these men getting out and hurting other children. The judge should be ashamed.
Of the 35 so-called bowl games being played, only eight are real, national championship-level bowl games. The rest are just plain college football games pretending to be bowl games — not for the improvement of the sport, the betterment of the athletes or the entertainment of the fans, but purely for the almighty dollar.
Merry Christmas, laid-off workers from Coleman and Cargill. Look at the bright side: Obama says the economy is improving. Too bad he isn’t asking for your opinion.
It seems that Obama could not remember which of the 57 states he was in when he gave his speech. They tell me this guy is the smartest person in a room.
If the president wants to complain about “fat cats,” why doesn’t he complain about professional athletes? If Albert Pujols plays every game next year, 162 games, he will be making more than $150,000 per game. Someone please tell me that our priorities are not completely out of kilter.
St. Louis will miss Albert Pujols. He is as great a person as he is a baseball player.
This coming election season, remember that Sens. Jerry Moran and Pat Roberts think that it’s OK for the government to detain you without trial, and keep you detained even if found innocent in a trial, until the end of the war on terror.
Why would a Republican governor and Republican senators and members of Congress want to attend a political media campaign event in their conservative state conducted by a Democratic president? As a registered voter, I would prefer they continue their expected problem-solving efforts in a constructive manner.
Notice the hands of Gov. Sam Brownback and Gov. Rick Perry when they give a speech to the public. It’s like they are saying, “come unto me and I will save you.”
I hope Kathleen Parker wasn’t denigrating people who work janitorial jobs (“Gingrich comments insulting, out of touch,” Dec. 9 Opinion). When I was a middle-class grade schooler, I took my turn sweeping the classrooms every couple of weeks. What’s wrong with poor kids — any child — pitching in to do necessary janitorial work at school and home?
If your biggest gripe is that people say “Happy Holidays” instead of “Merry Christmas,” then you are totally ignorant of all the problems going on in this country. You apparently don’t know that Christ wasn’t even born at this time of year. So lighten up and let all religions enjoy the season. Oh, by the way — Happy Holidays.
Dear Wichita citizens: Thank you for subsidizing my end-of-year bonus with your taxpayer handouts. Merry Christmas from a grateful CEO.
