Placeholder It's Your Call

Tip your hat

I want to thank the News-Press for putting the article about June 6, 1944, on the front page. My dad and his generation lived through this, and it was their line in the sand. And I want to thank the News-Press for mentioning it, many years, it’s been forgotten. God bless all those who served in the United States Army around the world, especially those that went in on Omaha and all the rest of the beaches. If not for them, we wouldn’t be able to call “It’s your call” and complain about this or that or about something down the street that we have no control over. Thank God they did what they did. We need to remember every one of those. If you see somebody out that looks like a veteran, walk up and thank him for his service. It will put a smile on his face and put one on yours, too.

Show to run

I don’t think it is fair that presidents refuse to show their tax returns, I have to show my last year’s tax returns to apply for a loan. I have a solution. The last four people in the running to become our next president have to show their tax returns or be eliminated. Solves that problem. Don’t show your tax return, you don’t run for president.

Byzantine

Is it possible for our council to print out a sheet on the rules and regulations for landlords? Perhaps a list of what we can do and can’t do. I have called for answers about the things I don’t understand, and if I talk to two different people, I receive two different answers. Right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing. And me as a landlord, I don’t have a clue what the rules are. Please send a printout.

A new drug

It’s wrong that so many cities like St. Joseph want to get rid of tobacco. But boy, you can have your marijuana and you can have that stupid kratom or whatever it is on the streets and it’s a known health hazard, but you want to get rid of cigarettes.

Gondola rides

People are bummed out because our Riverfront development plan looks like a bad investment. Look at the beautiful riverbluffs we have. Why couldn’t the city expand Wyeth Hill Park to the north and build a better access road? There could be campsites and a cable lift gondola car system leading down to the casino and now Remington Nature Center with a gift shop and a snack bar at the top of the hill. If you build it, they will come.

Great hire

Super article on Neal Hook. He is an outstanding man with great qualities. In the 21 years I have worked with him, I have never heard one curse word come out of his mouth. He is a great person, has great qualities and a great coach, a wonderful addition to St. Joseph Christian School.

Sociallyunacceptable

AJ doesn't seem to understand why Obozo's country of origin is such an issue when it's clearly stated in law that you have to have been born in the US to be elected president.

aj0201

And what proof is there that he was born anywhere else? Not one credible person has been able to show that he was born outside this country. Ted Cruz was not and democrats made far less noise about that.

Sociallyunacceptable

All I can add to that is that if you believe everything the govt and the media tells you then you are a fool. There isn't a person alive that has ever worked for the govt that hasn't seen things covered up. Yours truly saw things in the Navy that "never happened unless you want to go to the brig" so don't pretend that this sort of thing never happens.

aj0201

So you have no proof. Just say that.

munchman

Terry how much more clearly stated than an official state birth certificate stated he ws born in the United States/ Connie's will fight to the death to defend a conspiratorial lie like birtherism and will fight just as hard to discredit the truth that de-legitimizes the t rump "Fake" presidency. Must have been really hard on you having a Black Man as your president.

jdw64485

I'm not a big Obama fan. But all this about his place of birth can be laid to rest. Just Google the birth certificate of Obama. It will take you to a official State issued birth certificate showing he was born in Hawaii. But has I've said before you can find on the internet to work with your agenda. But i don't believe that's true in this case. I'm satisfied he is a American born citizen.

WakeUpUS

He WAS born in Hawaii. But that 'birth-certificate' was fake.

aj0201

Wrong.

jdw64485

Wake, just curious just how did you come to the collusion that the birth certificate is fake.? Nothing I saw would indicate it was fake.

WakeUpUS

A patriotic forensic team looked at the file, found that the multiple 'layers' used in modern 'Illustrator' type programs were still intact & 'splittable' which would not be possible with a scan of an OLD document. Also, with an IBM Selectric (or one of that era that era) typewriter, each keystroke is like a snowflake (not a Liberal snowflake). Every letter imprinted 'uniquely' into the ribbon & would be different under forensic magnification. This FAKE certificate released by the governor of Hawaii (an Obama ally) strangely had every different letter EXACTLY THE SAME, like you would get from using a font on a modern computer. They also referred to Barry's African-American heritage using a pronoun used commonly today which was not used back in the day the document would have been generated. This is OLD news that was never reported. You can find much MORE on the web by going to sites the Leftist Big Tech giants & media outlets have suppressed, banned & demonized in an effort to cover the Truth with a shroud. [huh]

jdw64485

Wake, you say he was born in Hawaii. If he was as you say born in Hawaii. Why would it be necessary to fake the birth certificate. What would be gained by doing this? As i said I'm not a big fan. But why cant we except he was a American citizen.

aj0201

Wake wants you to believe he has a different biological father than he does. So to Wake, the certificate MUST be fake or his theory falls apart.

WakeUpUS

Google or YouTube: 'Dreams From My REAL Father' by Joel Gilbert. His father was NOT Barack Obama Sr. & even his eldest step-brother has seen the film & agrees. Don't take my word for it (or aj's). Make up your own mind. Aj0201 wants everybody to believe Barack Obama Sr. is Barry's biological father. So to Aj0201, the certificate MUST be real or his theory falls apart.

Following is for the 'WUSS of a man.

zzsnot303

Dang munch, you are going to go bananas when Trump is re-elected lol

Sociallyunacceptable

Show to run- This has to be one of the most asinine, ill informed calls I've read in a while. Who has to show last year's tax documents to get a loan? Nobody. You might have to show several weeks check stubs but I've never had to show tax returns even for a home or auto loan. And even the documents I did provide stay private between me and the company I'm doing business with. This whole business with Trumps' tax documents are just so they can be leaked and not even in their entirety. They will be selectively leaked and it's only an attempt to smear someone.

JohnQTaxpayer

The caller was likely a Democrat 'minion' applying for a 'payday loan' after a trip to the Casino...[wink]

Sociallyunacceptable

Even payday loans don't require tax returns.

WakeUpUS

I know- I was joking about the caller. [cool]

munchman

No terry it is an attempt to show how t rump's own actions have smeared him. His words and actions must make you so proud.

WakeUpUS

President Trump is 10,000 times the patriot you'll ever be, munchman- Despite your record of having served in the military. John McCain was a patriot while in the military, but a horrible globalist once in the political realm.[whistling]

zzsnot303

and a big AMEN to that statement wake..

zzsnot303

Really, tax returns have NOTHING to do with a candidates run for office.

beelog

President Trump---Like him or not, he gets things accomplished. He has addressed the border problem by himself---being fought by Democrats (and some Republicans) all the while. He was well-received in Great Britain and covered fairly by the British press (listening CNN, MSNBC ?). He has accomplished a great deal while having to fight Democrats on every issue. The Democrats should be ashamed of themselves. Those who criticize his every word should be ashamed of themselves.

JohnQTaxpayer

It' NICE to have a leader who's not afraid to to ruffle the establishment crooks, like when Ken Sherin was elected mayor here. [beam][beam][lol][thumbup] I like Trump. Never was a fan before he ran for office, but when I heard the platform he was running on, he gained my FULL support. [thumbup]

munchman

Happy you found a racist you can throw your full support behind. His announcement to run was pure racial hatred and the beginning of the border lies that his brain dead followers eat up like flies eat up human waste.

WakeUpUS

Right back at you, munchhatemonger.

aj0201

If you believe this deal with Mexico solves anything, let’s talk about beachfront property I have in North Dakota. This agreement requires Mexico to do nothing and what they agreed on they had already agreed on prior to all of this. Trump caved and claimed victory. As for his reception in GB, the people made it clear how well he was received. The press was being polite.

B4

Aj0201 has been so busy with his bellyaching that he missed the latest regarding Mexico. Aj has been flapping his mouth proclaiming that Trump's negotiations with Mexico regarding tariffs have failed. To set the record straight, late yesterday Mexico froze funds for 23 organizations that have been identified as funding those migrant caravans. A giant step in the right direction! #Trump2020!

WakeUpUS

aj0201 is to President Trump what 'Goldfish' is to that Joseph Whoever that works for the MO Highway Dept. Obsessed in a petty way.

munchman

Yes Aunty he is tilting at the border windmill, which wasn't a problem till he declared it one, all by himself.

zzsnot303

the border problem IS a huge problem indeed, wake up munchie

munchman

Those who believe any word he says should have their heads examined.

Democrats will cry for 4 more years after Trump is re-elected, and they lose the House majority AGAIN, a twice-over for Pelosi

aj0201

Show to run, President’S’ don’t hide their tax returns. Only one has. The one who promised to be the most transparent president. The one who promised to sho his tax returns if Obama showed his birth certificate. The one who said that he couldn’t because of an audit even though the irs said he could and now he says he won’t because of an audit. The one who correctly predicted that voting for Hillary would elect a President who would be under constant investigation. The one who encourage chants of ‘lock her up’ only to become upset when some suggested he be locked up. Naw....there’s only one President who has hid his tax return.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Who cares? #TRUMP2020

People who expect honesty and transparency do. Those suffering from cognitive dissonance not so much. Those hypocrites who proclaim there hocus pocus is essential in choosing a righteous leader, not so much. "There are none so blind as those who WILL NOT see.

Idle thought...……..what is it about a President's tax return that you want to know...……………..? As I recall, we had quite a problem getting any information about Obumer's birth...……..do you suppose he is an American citizen......I don't. He is the only President that hid his citizenship.

I'maLumberjack...

Wow, Arch. You really can't get over the fact that a black man was your president for eight years. You are stuck in the fifties. That is obvious.

beelog

When there is no legitimate reply, play the "race card". It is getting tiresome. Obama was judged on his failed policies of appeasement, ala Neville Chamberlain.

Sociallyunacceptable

If Obama had been a republican and doubts about his country of birth surfaced you would have been all over it.

aj0201

Bee why was Obama’s birth such an issue?

JohnQTaxpayer

'Uncle' Frank Marshall Davis, his Communist REAL biological father.[huh][whistling]

When racist accuse you of "playing the race card" does that make the overt racism you point out not racist? Birtherism sooth racists like wetting their pants in freezing weather does.

The 'release' of his official (FAKE) Hawaiian birth certificate. He WAS born in Hawaii, but that released certificate was quickly & easily debunked as a 'poorly-contrived forgery' put out by sympathetic (emphasis on 'pathetic') Leftist Democrat politicos, though the Leftist media wouldn't cover it. [cool][huh]

Nonsense. It was real. And thanks for recognizing that he was born in the US.

I've always said he was born in the US. But Obama was raised as a Muslim in Indonesia, & became a non-citizen, ineligible for office.

Comment deleted.
Marty_Chuzzlewit

As seen by public statements of the newest Democrat House members, being Muslim by birth and anti-Semitic by choice is de riguer, being a pro-life Christian, not so much

How did he become a non citizen????

Off to a bad start this morning. Bashing our real President right out of starting gate.

Herr Trump is a sociopathic demagogue. Until the day he is removed from office, one way or another, he will deserve all the bashing he gets. If he doesn't see a psychiatrist, he should.

If all the accusations against President Trump were true, he'd dang near qualify to be a Democrat! [lol][thumbup][thumbup]

He won't be removed from office, he will be reelected in 2020. Better start getting used to it.

Just because I think President Trump was easily & vastly the BEST candidate doesn't mean I agree with his every statement. This isn't like the Leftist cult where you all speak in lock-step, towing the Party-line. We have the right to think our own thoughts as individuals. Unlike the Democrat Hive-Mind.

I'm a Lumberjack...……………...Obumer is off to see all the 57 States. (And to look for his real birth certificate)

aj--I guess you are saying you don't trust the IRS which has his tax returns under audit? They are being scrutinized carefully. They are no doubt complicated, but if there is a serious problem, the IRS will take action. You will find he made a ton of money and took legitimate exemptions. Since they are under audit, they are not yet final--believe me, he won't be getting a refund--it will determine only how much he has to pay.

aj0201

I could not care less what his tax returns say. He promised to do something that is in his complete control to do and has apparently decided to break that promise. People who willfully break promises are typically considered to be untrustworthy.

munchman

And liars (10,000 times over). aj ever notice how the Connies never comment on our provable claim of his lying?

James Bond1

aj0201...…….what "something" did he promise...……..?

munchman

His limp "audit" claim which is not a reason keeping the from being released, as per the IRS, is a limp as other parts of his anatomy.

WakeUp - that is too funny...and too true! Hahahaha!

James Bond1

I would bet you a nickle that Trump's Tax Return is examined ,every year...……...he just happens to fit the screening defined by IRS and they do it automatically, so if theres any issue it is already under consideration.

Sociallyunacceptable

Only one president has hid his tax returns because only one president came from the private sector straight to office. That's why fool.

aj0201

What does that have to do with anything? He promised to do so and has not fulfilled that promise.

Sociallyunacceptable

So how many politicians have made promises that weren't kept? I can name several and most of them were Democrats.

Please give an equivalent lie where the issue was completely in control of the President....
