Placeholder It's Your Call

Yes, but

I’m for early education for children, but I believe if a state, city or school district is going to fund it for free, then the parent who is placing the child should be working somewhere. If you’re on welfare, government assistance, food stamps, whatever, and you’re using this child care just as a babysitting service, to me, that’s wrong.

Bumper car

In regard to the Parkway, this city decided to block it off because somebody complained about the bump. Well it’s been over a month now, we still have a detour that is hard on our cars going from Robidoux down St. Joseph Avenue to Krug Park. I mean, come on, city. Use our tax dollars wisely and take care of what people complain about or open it up until you’re ready to do it.

Plenty of land

I’m calling in about the Mosaic program, helping out the homeless. And my suggestion would be if Mosaic wants to help, why don’t they donate some property on their grounds, Mosaic hospital for the homeless and build the food kitchen and a homeless shelter there? They say they want to help them with employment and drug abuse. Well, everything would be right there for them. And I’m sure there are plenty of jobs out there to put some of them to work. I think a lot of these homeless people just need a place to go. And what better place than right there by the hospital? There’s plenty of land if Mosaic will just donate some of it. It would move the homeless people from the Downtown area and solve the problem.

Private data

I have never had to show last year’s tax statements to get any form of a loan. I have had to produce proof of income. Even if I would show my financial information to somebody to get a loan, it remains private.

Life of Brian

My question is, when did we elect Brian Myers as our mayor? He seems to be the one who is always out there promoting everything that is not what the public wants. What’s wrong with this?

Pay cut

The head of our local Teamsters union said truck drivers carrying paper towels make more than school bus drivers who carry our precious cargo — our children. Then I believe the truck drivers need to take a big cut in their pay.

Cool air

I am wondering if St. Joseph School District Superintendent Doug Van Zyl is going to do it. Is he going to get any A.C. units in our schools around town?

In another way that the Trump Administration is showing itself to be above the law, the recommendation from the US Special Counsels Office has been tossed in the trash for repeat offender Kellyanne Conway. Trump says that he isn’t concerned about the Hatch Act violations of this repeat offender and that she was just exercising her 1st Amendment guarantees. Nice double standard the President has......

Life of Brian: You are complaining that a council member is doing what they are elected to do? Of course you are probably one of the people who voted for our current mayor who gave our City Manager an A+ without a slightest idea of whats going on. And the Mayor who says that our crime issue is FAKE NEWS! Whats a shame is the number of council members who fight to keep the status quo, when the community wants a change. If you don't like what Brian is doing go to a council meeting to address it, just make sure you fill out one of McMurrays registration cards before you do so.

Fake Noise

aj0201

President Trump completely fine with accepting “dirt” from a foreign nation. Admits he’s fine with committing a crime to get elected. Wipes out FBI task force that had been set up to stop foreign involvement in our elections.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

aj_Acosta left out this part of what President Trump said: "If I thought anything was incorrect or badly stated, I'd report it to the attorney general, the FBI, I'd report it to law enforcement absolutely."

aj0201

“If I thought....?” That’s not how the law works.

jdw64485

What's wrong with "If I thought". If you thought a crime was being committed wouldn't you report it?

Marty_Chuzzlewit

President Trump has voluminous conversations with "foreign" leaders. Would aj_Chamberlin demand all those words be reported to the FBI? Remember, the Mueller Report verified candidate Trump had NO contact with Russian operatives of any kind. All this DeepFake News reporting is nothing but baseless speculation.

aj0201

As soon as you’re approached with “dirt” you should be reporting that to the fbi. You don’t get to listen then make a determination.

aj0201

This is real simple Marty. The FEC Chair made it plain yesterday. He cannot accept something of value toward his campaign. He can talk with foreign leaders all he wants but the moment they attempt to influence the election in any small way he needs to report that. This isn’t rocket science. Small wonder he struggles to understand.

James Bond1

Actually, it is exactly how the law works.

jdw64485

aj, If you don't listen how would you know it's dirt?

aj0201

The Trump Tower meeting was known to be about dirt. Of course one can’t stop another from an unsolicited statement, but he said the other day that he would listen and not call the FBI. He also said all of Congress does this and has for years. So he just called them lawbreakers.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

aj_Huffington is the one who has difficulty understanding. Again, here is what President Trump said: "If I thought anything was incorrect or badly stated, I'd report it to the attorney general, the FBI, I'd report it to law enforcement absolutely."

aj0201

Umm, when did he say this Marty_Winger? Because when asked directly from ABC, he said it isn’t how life works to call the FBI and that the FBI Director was wrong to say you should? This represents a backpedaling from the President now that he has been told better by his handlers. His first instinct, after two years of investigation, was to do it again and break the law.

aj0201

For someone who supposedly "tells it like it is" he sure has to spend a lot of time and send a lot of people out to explain what he actually meant

aj0201

Trump this week said “there’s nothing wrong with listening” to dirt on an opponent, no matter what the source. “They have information,” he said in an ABC interview. “I think I’d take it.” As Judge Napolitano said, he’s prepared to commit a felony.

James Bond1

Hummmmm…………...as JamesBond1 says being prepared to commit a felony is not a felony.

aj0201

No, it isn’t. But he obviously has no problem doing so.

jdw64485

So are you saying the liberals would pass this information up? No they would except it with a smile in their face.

beelog

Hillary did!

aj0201

Hillary did? What info did she receive from a foreign nation?

B4

President Trump is a master at trolling the left. He got everybody to go nuts over saying that he would accept foreign dirt about a political opponent. Tomorrow he'll remind everyone that Hillary Clinton solicited dirt on him from Russia, paid for it, and used it to help form a coup against him once he was elected. He makes it look so easy.

Thecalvin

Lie.

aj0201

Good grief B4. Figures you’d be the one to put that out there. Too dense to understand the difference between Trumps issue and Hillary’s.

Good grief Aj. Figures you’d be the one to come to Hillary's defense and overlook the corruption. By the way, did you contribute to Hillary's slush fund for Haiti? Even her own daughter was embarrassed by her dishonesty.

B4

What was that when Obama whispered on a hot mic to the Russian to wait until after the election he'd have more leeway? Huh

aj0201

Yes, what was that? More leeway to negotiate after re-election is the same as “help me get elected?” Accepting something of value from a foreign government is a crime. Saying you have more leeway to negotiate after a re-election isn’t a crime.

B4

aj - you're a joke - you don't have the slightest idea what Obama meant by that statement. Why was it whispered in the first place? How does this even remotely relate to President Trump? You're making a fool out of yourself.

aj0201

Right. How does this relate to Trump? You brought it up.

B4 that comment doesn’t make sense. You know that you have 0 argument for Trump that doesn’t eventually devolve into whataboutism.

aj - you are the one who brought up whataboutism. Is that your feeble argument about what Obama might or might not have said...seems to be the case. You might want to retract on that "makes no sense" comment...oh, wait it probably doesn't make sense to you. Are your tater chips and twinkles building up too much fatty placque in your carotid artery and blocking your blood flow to your brain???

James Bond1

Accepting something from a foreign government is not necessarily a crime.

aj0201

What a dolt! You brought Obama into a discussion of Trump. You always do. Obama or Hillary. I’m just describing what it is that you do. You cannot make an argument about Trump without resorting to bringing up Obama or Hillary and when those fail you make it personal. You’re a sad, pathetic, petty person. Try to make an argument without using Obama, Hillary, or a personal attack. Just see if you can do it. I’ll bet you $ that you won’t make it the rest of the day.

In terms of a campaign, the law is quite clear. He cannot accept anything of value from a foreign government or agent of that government. It’s a crime. “Information” has already been deemed to be “something of value” in this circumstance.
