Privatize the DMV. Let it become a for-profit entity. You wouldn’t be spending a day and a quarter waiting for a driver’s license.
Gov. Sam Brownback and his minions seem to have forgotten about our checks-and-balance system, guaranteed by the Constitution. There are three levels of government. Court-packing legislation is unlawful.

We ask God to bless America. But how can He bless a nation that has departed so far from Him?
I had the opportunity to attend a Warren Theatre this holiday weekend. They showed a magnificent tribute to America, our freedom and our flag. Thank you to Bill Warren for a beautiful patriotic experience.
The article “Hiring is rising sharply for temp workers” (July 9 Business Today) was so sad. Life just keeps getting tougher for most people. Nothing to celebrate here unless you are in that top 1 percent.
I understand the logic of hiring part-time workers for 20 or 30 hours a week to avoid paying benefits, but what is the rationale for hiring many workers who only work one six-hour shift a week? That’s only gas money for the worker and builds no loyalty or well-trained staff for the business.
Regarding “Ashamed of U.S.” (July 10 Letters to the Editor): I’m ashamed that the U.S. Supreme Court once supported slavery, along with Congress. I’m ashamed that the administration and Congress would not allow black people or women to vote. We are still righting wrongs in this country, slowly but surely.
The U.S. House has now voted 37 times on repealing Obamacare – 37 times – even though repeal has no chance of passing the Senate and certainly no chance of being signed by President Obama. Each vote costs taxpayers $1 million. Enough already.
President Obama should heed Daniel Ellsberg’s advice on Edward Snowden. It’s exactly what every American who believes in freedom should expect from America. The NSA got caught with its hand in the cookie jar. To get it out, the NSA must let go of the cookie.
I answer so many questions at the checkout counter – Do you have a shopper number? What is your PIN number? Do you want to contribute? What is your ZIP code? Do you want cash back? Is the amount correct? – that I forget what I bought. Maybe that’s the idea.
Who cares if Twinkies come back? They’re cotton candy with a crust, and if you leave them around long enough even a roach won’t eat ‘em. Just bring back the Ho Hos and Ding Dongs.
