Placeholder It's Your Call

Madame president

I just wanted to comment on the caller who said that the first lady had class. Yes, by all means she has 100 times more class than her husband. Maybe she should be president.

There’s a law

It’s just a joke. There is a law against kids riding their ATVs and dirt bikes in the city of Agency. We need to call the Sheriff’s Department when that’s going on. We can put a stop to it.

Sign of trouble

In regard to the comment about the “Slow, children at play” sign, in reality that sign does nothing except provide a false sense of security to those who request them to be put up.

Good for news

All of these news networks that love to hate our President Donald Trump should in all reality love him. Without him they wouldn’t have a job. It is funny how things work out, isn’t it?

Time to act

Why is there so much theft and vandalism in St. Joseph and the Police Department is doing nothing about it?

Demand and supply

Have you noticed that the price of oil dropped over $8 in the last two weeks, and is now getting awfully close to the $50 a barrel price? However, the oil companies apparently are ignoring this oil price drop and have moved down very little to acknowledge it. Don’t you think someone should question this?

Times change

Eighteen- to 20-year-olds today need trigger warnings, safe spaces and worry about micro-aggressions. Seventy-five years ago on June 6, which is Thursday, that same age group charged the beaches of Normandy to try to free a continent. My, how things have changed.

City slicker

Quite obviously, the person who complained that farmers only work three months a year was not raised on a farm.

Reparations

I just read Esther Cepeda’s column on we need to pay reparations. I think it’s a great idea. My ancestors fought and one died to free the slaves, so I should get reparations for that sacrifice right? Come on, Esther.

Rule the fish

Yes, it is the puzzle to figure out how to protect the pallid sturgeon so that they can be counted or should people who live along the Missouri River be first? These residents have their houses and fields flooded and destroyed because the Army Corps of Engineers has changed the course of the river. The answer is in the Bible, “Then God said, ‘Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea …”

Off topic---Local labor leader Mike Veale has a letter in today's News-Press in which he decries the influence of paid lobbyists and their influence on lawmakers. My only problem with his letter is that one of the biggest lobbies is that of organized labor. Are the unions prepared to stop buying politicians?

Demand and supply--(oil)--the price you are talking about is the wellhead price. It takes months for oil from the pump to transported and refined before it makes it to your local gas station. The gas your local station is now selling left the wellhead months ago. Gas leaving the wellhead today won't be at your local station for months.

good for news--(media---much of the media is obsessed with their hatred for Trump--and they have spent most of their time since the election trying to convince their listeners to hate him as well. They have a gullible audience.

So it wasn't hatred from Fox when we had a ral president and they attacked him? It is so easy and fallacious to call reporting hate and fake when it is neither? Which is worse what appears to be hat for a hateful person or hatred of hones factual reporting by a free and open press.

We have a real president now, too. He was legally and duly elected. You may not like him but regardless...he's your president. As for the media...it's ALWAYS been biased. The last unbiased reporter I can remember was Walter Cronkite. Fox is biased...and so is CNN and MSNBC. So are CBS, ABC, NBC, BBC, etc. To say otherwise would be naïve...

You can not show bias when reporting factual truth. There is no bias in truth. I don't watch 24 hour cable news channels because they are more interested in editorializing thn in telling factual truth. If I am wrong please explain how facts can be biased?

the Mueller report did NOT say that. it was a bogus copout on facts, only suspicions. bottom line Mueller had his hands tied from the start, but failed to recommend anything

aj0201

Failed? No. He very adequately explained why he didn’t make recommendations.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Call it a "recommendation" or a "suggestion" or other term of one's choice, but the Mueller coven report definitely challenged the Democrat Socialist House to "trump" up something, anything, to justify commencing an impeachment inquiry. Mueller later, in a public statement, implied the DOJ’s Office of Legal Counsel memo on presidential impeachment more or less tied his hands on making any recommendation, leaving out the fact his report stated the President was not involved in an underlying crime. The Mueller coven knew or should have known that was the case after their first few weeks of "investigation" and made public that there was NO underlying crime for them to investigate.

aj0201

A crime does not need to be committed for the House to impeach.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

My comment did not infer an impeachment inquiry by the House Judiciary Committee would have to be based on an underlying crime, just the opposite.

Good post, popski

aj0201

I dunno popski. Those folks had survived the Depression prior to WWII. They did have a level of self sufficiency that kids now don’t have. But that isn’t because of anything the kids do. We seem to be attempting to blame the kids for who and what they are but parents shove phones in their faces and buy video game units for them at a young age. But I don’t know that this would equate to a moral difference given a similar set of circumstances. The US military got a huge boost in enlistment with the bombing of Pearl Harbor. We saw the same thing with 9/11. Maybe not the same numbers, but a similar fervor. We also live in a world now where even if we were engaged in a world war, I doubt we’d face rationing and other sacrifices that they did during the 40s. I have faith that our young people would answer the call given the same set of extraordinary circumstances.

aj0201

I agree with you on the Vietnam Vets. The treatment they got upon returning was terrible. But let’s remember who the counter culture protestors were. They were children of the “Greatest Generation.†And the government leaders who prosecuted a war for purely political reasons were members of that “Greatest Generation.â€

That's the youth already IN today's military. I've met a lot of young people who have little regard for the military and their patriotism is rather lacking.

POPS, I think you are pretty close...……….but, I'm not sure how the numbers would come out. Knowing that there is no draft, I'm surprised b y the number of volunteers there are. In my day, there was never an option so the only thing I had the opportunity to do was go to College and when I graduated, I knew I was going to be picked up shortly so I picked the time. Todays kids don't have the draft in the background so all of these "volunteers" is a little bit of a surprise.

popski

We have some great young people in the military right now. They volunteered. We ALSO have a lot of volunteers who are ONLY in it for the benefits and the bonuses. Once their college is paid for and they've exhausted their bonus...they're gone. Many of them are very vocal about it..."I'm only in for what I can get out of it...then I'm OUTTA here!". Thankfully, there are more who are dedicated and who wish to serve their country than that.
