If you’re wondering why medical care costs so much, consider the Minnesota dentist and Pennsylvania doctor who recently paid big bucks to hunt African lions.
Why can’t “big game hunters” just say they “like to kill animals” instead of making some lamebrain excuse for why they do it?
Maybe instead of showing pictures of poor Cecil the lion, they should show pictures of how male lions kill and eat lion cubs.
Which is the more profound imbecile – the person who texts, uses a cellphone or electronic device while driving a vehicle in city traffic, or the one who does the same thing while driving at high speeds on the highway?
Recently said lawmakers are deliberately attempting to ban a procedure that has been proved, with research and statistics, to be the safest procedure for the second trimester of pregnancy. Safest for whom? Being allowed to be born and live would be safest for the baby.
So now Obama is going to raise our electric bills. I really don’t think that Westar Energy needs any help to do that.
Hillary Clinton is grasping for anything she can. Her poll numbers continue to fall, inevitably, as people get to know more about who she really is. So people pull out the old “war on women” foolishness. After all, when you ain’t got nothing, you ain’t got nothing to lose.
If Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz can’t tell us the difference between a Democrat and a socialist, who can?
Baltimore has turned to the federal government to help with its out-of-control violence and murders. The city is seeing the results of its assault on police officers. Yes, they are there to protect and serve. The thin blue line is crossed at the public’s peril.
Every news piece about a shooting should include a standard last sentence saying that at least the shooter had his gun rights.
A letter writer said Sedgwick County Commission Chairman Richard Ranzau does not listen well. I disagree. He seems to listen very well to Charles Koch, Americans for Prosperity and the tea party – just not anyone else in the county.
Someone asked: If there are “thousands of people out there who support a smaller budget, why weren’t more than a couple of them at the meeting?” My voice was cast at the voting booth. I don’t need to argue for something I voted an elected official to accomplish.
The reason there weren’t as many supporters of the county budget at the first public hearing is because they were at work. They probably won’t be at the evening meeting because they are tired from working all day. Stay strong, county commissioners. There are a lot of us supporting you.
