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.

Selfies with Killed Animals Show the Real Animal

Welcome to a new chapter in our history, when we must now ask, "What is going on with these people who seem to get such a thrill out of posting selfies of themselves grinning alongside animals they have killed?"

Bolting Colts and Wagging Nags

"And They're Almost Off." Yes, the entrance to the 2016 Presidential Derby has officially been flung open wider than the gap between George Bernard Shaw and Pee Wee Herman.

Last week two prominent Ukrainian opposition figures were gunned down in broad daylight. They join as many as ten others who have been killed or committed suicide under suspicious circumstances just this year. These individuals have one important thing in common: they were either part of or friendly with the Yanukovych government, which a US-backed coup overthrew last year. They include members of the Ukrainian parliament and former chief editors of major opposition newspapers.

Chris Christie Has Gone to Pot

Amidst all the early GOP presidential jockeying, let's check on our Jersey boy Chris Christie. Looks like the tough-love guv surfaced this week on a radio show and ranted about reefer madness.

Hillary Already Stimulating the Economy

It's amazing how Hillary Clinton can stimulate the U.S. economy simply by announcing her candidacy for president.
