We’ll return to your program shortly

I had the opportunity Tuesday afternoon to tape a to-be-televised debate between the two 112th District Kansas House candidates. For those of you living under a political rock, this includes Republican John Edmonds and Democrat Steve Muehleisen, both from Great Bend.

Immigrant welfare abuse, dependency hits Americans in the wallet

Pulling into town soon-maybe where you live-will be the UndocuBus, the so called "Ride for Justice." In a shameless exhibition of United States immigration law flouting, the bus has emblazoned on its side "Sin papels, sin miedo" ("without papers, without fear").

Time to burn out those bulbs

Former President George Bush signed, in 2007, the federal Energy Independence and Security Act that set new energy efficiency standards, reducing our dependence on foreign oil. One provision was phasing out the traditional incandescent light bulb, invented in the early 1800s.

Two failed parties, two inadequate choices

America is a nation in crisis. Faith in our economic and political institutions, from Wall Street to Congress, is at or near historic lows.

There is nothing to do- in the world

I grew up in Salida, Colo surrounded by majestic mountains, located only 20 miles from Monarch Ski Area on the Arkansas River with three hot springs swimming pools within a 15 mile radius. It had a bowling alley, movie theater, and stunningly beautiful golf course. We also had an ice skating rink open about three weeks per year.

It's not all Greek to me

The financial situation and recent elections in Greece are once again bringing to the forefront the deficit issues in our own country. Admirably, the citizens of Greece elected the party vowing to stay in the European Union but work toward reducing the harsh terms of the bailout program.

What Footloose has to Teach Us About Iran

The Republican opposition to striking a nuclear deal with Iran puzzled me, until my friend Truman explained that it's exactly like the famous tractor scene from Kevin Bacon's 1984 class movie, "Footloose."

Iran Fighting ISIS – Is it Really a Problem?

As Iran continues to take an active role in helping Iraq fight the Islamic State group (ISIS), many neocons are upset that the U.S. military is not over there on the ground doing the fighting. They want Americans to believe that only another U.S. invasion of Iraq – and of Syria as well – can defeat ISIS. But what is wrong with the countries of the region getting together and deciding to cooperate on a common problem?

The World of Sonia Sotomayor

We all know that some people, for genetic or other reasons, experience depression more frequently and deeply than normal. At the other end of the spectrum are people like U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor who, despite having experienced painful losses and disadvantages that would understandably depress a normal person, achieve success and a life of remarkable accomplishment.

Obama Screws the Middle Class Again

How would you like a free refund of your last three years' of taxes? A promise that you won't have to pay any possible back taxes or penalty? Would you have any objection if the IRS chooses not to ask for income verification?

The First Female President

This year marks the 20-year anniversary of Hillary Clinton's speech at the Fourth World Conference on Women titled, "Women's Rights Are Human Rights." It was 1995 when then-First Lady Clinton went to Beijing and challenged the world to see women's issues as not separate from the rest of humanity.

Democrats Have a Corruption Problem

Senator Bob Menendez will soon be indicted on corruption and obstruction of justice charges stemming from his relationship with Salomon Melgen, a West Palm Beach eye doctor. Melgen thought he could get away with Medicare fraud because he gave Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid's Super PAC $700,000 and lavished Menendez with private jet flights to his luxury resort. Given the known public facts, Harry Reid should return Melgen's money to the taxpayers he stole it from and should ask Menendez to resign.
