So Sen. Pat Roberts takes a weekend trip to Iraq, at our expense, and decides that morale is good among our troops. “I’m more optimistic than I was,” he said. If our troops were allowed to say how they really feel, it would be a totally different story.
Someone please explain to Rep. Mike Pompeo that ending the embargo of Cuba will benefit Kansas farmers and ranchers with wheat and beef exports. His love of outsourcing our jobs to China is obviously more important than helping his own constituents.

Whoa, people – we are invited over to visit the Cubans “at their house.” Act like you have done this before and you might get invited back.

The toilet paper tubes have been discontinued as we know them. One manufacturer did away with them to keep them from loading up our landfills, but all the rest are making them a larger diameter to save a few sheets of paper. How weird is that?
