I would be willing to volunteer in any manner to assist anyone in obtaining an ID in order to vote in November. By limiting or denying citizens’ rights with the voter-ID laws, Republicans are proving they are willing, by hook or by crook, to ensure the advantage. I believe mostly by crook.
Enough already. Seventy percent of all Americans (including Democrats) approve of voter-ID laws. It’s going to be the law all over the land. Just accept it and move on.

For all those Republican climate-change deniers: There is a special delivery package, in the form of a hurricane, awaiting you at the Tampa GOP Convention.
While we work hard to pay our own way, too many Americans seem to be on the take. The Heritage Foundation calculates that 70 percent of government costs go to those who are dependent on government handouts. If this continues, we can’t expect to remain a free republic.
I’m over 70, and I promise you that if you’re over 50 and still support the philosophy of the Republican Party, you’re a fool.
Take a look at Mitt Romney’s true character: Does he really think it’s funny to post on his website that as a young boy he threw pebbles at his future wife as she rode by on a horse? A bully then. A bully in high school. A bully now.
Rep. Todd Akin’s comments reflect a view that is widely held in the Republican Party – that women should be punished for having sex, even when it is the result of rape. How else do you explain their simultaneous opposition to abortion and to birth control (which could eliminate abortions, but also “allows” women to have sex)?
Only a group that is cruel and ignorant, the GOP Taliban tea party, would ban all abortions with no exceptions. How terrible it is to make a victim of rape or incest relive what happened to her every day for nine months. Only the truly heartless would put a woman through such an ordeal.
Any women who think the Republicans will take care of them suffer from HISS: Head in Sand Syndrome.
What is Rep. Kevin Yoder trying to do? Change the image of Kansas, an ultraconservative, backward, boring, Brownback-slanted state?
It is amazing how many Wichita drivers ignore posted speed limits. The signs we think are posted speed limits are actually drivers’ IQ scores.
