I get a big kick when people refer to Purdue University as Perdue. They educate students there; they don’t raise chickens.

I don’t need government to tell me what kind of weapon I can use to defend my wife and kids. Yes, guns were made to kill. That’s the point.

Have you ever read about 30 burglars breaking into a house at the same time? It’s a myth that automatic weapons are needed for self-defense. We need to ban automatic weapons.

Shouldn’t our officials in Congress get tired of the National Rifle Association always telling them how to vote — even with all the money they get?

I own a seven-shot 12-gauge shotgun — not because the socialists are coming or burglars or the impending famine — but because of the other people who have guns.

I saw the Golden Globe Awards program on Sunday. Is there anything less glamorous than a woman in a designer gown with a bunch of tattoos on her body? Yuck!

Do you really think the person who turned in the wallet is the one who stole your friend’s rent money from it? The lowlife thief wouldn’t have bothered. The nice guy did. Think about it.

Stimulus check — from who? Since the government has nothing it doesn’t take from someone else, who pays that quarter of a trillion dollars? Want to stimulate the economy? Go spend some of your money.

The last flu shot I got was
in 1968.
I got sicker than a
dog. Haven’t had a shot since and haven’t gotten the flu. My wife got a shot this year and
is most definitely sicker than that dog.
