Placeholder It's Your Call

Missed the boat

When I lived in Kansas City and drove to St. Joseph to go to Menards and places on the South End, I didn’t feel the need to drive the extra 8 miles to the North End to go to The Shoppes. Now that I live in Cameron, Missouri, I go to the Belt Highway and get everything I want and need on the Belt and find no need to go Downtown. St. Joseph missed the boat by not promoting the South End toward Kansas City and not doing enough to the east side of St. Joseph going toward Cameron to draw the business dollars in.

Who to believe?

I’d like to call in about the person who’s saying the council doesn’t listen. Well, I mean, we just look at the headlines last week. One council person is saying Bruce Woody has got to go. We have another council person saying that “we just had a good butt-chewing and everything is going to be OK.” Then you have the actual mayor, who is saying “everything is hunky-dory, everything is just fine down at City Hall. I’ve got confidence that Bruce Woody is going to make things just right.” Who do you believe? I mean, really, who do you believe?

Stronger than ever

The House Democrats with their never-die witch hunt, are spitting on every vote for the Republican President Trump. Their action only reinforces my vote for Trump.

Favorite kook

Sell out personal beliefs for a vote? No one can top Lindsey Graham who called President Donald Trump a kook and has now become his lap dog.

Don’t spoil it

In small towns, there are very few things for kids to do and boredom sets in quickly. I have lived in Agency, Missouri, long enough to say that all these children are the most polite and well-mannered kids I have ever seen. I can understand how four-wheelers and dirt bikes would lift their spirits. I won’t stand out in my street and play traffic cop. I don’t see anything wrong with riding the these things in the street, providing the parents regulate how fast they travel, and keeping very close watch for people who may step out in front of them. I am not out to spoil their fun.

Dinged on Ping

I wonder who at the News-Press come up with the Ping Poll “Would you trust a Walmart employee in your home?” That’s about the stupidest poll you could ever come up with. A lot of us have family members and friends who work at Walmart who are completely honest people we would have live in our homes. What have you stooped to? That is the lowest thing you could have done.

Walmart defender

A lot of the concern in this day and age about political correctness is a bunch of hooey. But I had to call in because I couldn’t believe you would show such prejudice and discrimination against Walmart employees, unless all you are doing is trying to stir up a hornet’s nest.

Can’t believe it

I opened up my paper and could not believe the question in your Ping Poll about Walmart employees. I do not work there, but that is the most ... it’s hard to come up with a word for it. It’s degrading to the people of Walmart to ask such a question. I still just can’t believe it.

Lump of coal

All I’ve got to say to “A gift for all” about Trump is: You, sir, are delusional.

Go septic

Here’s just an old-school thought. There’s a lot of talk about the excessive wastewater being created. Why don’t they allow homeowners to have city code-approved septic systems installed on their property? That would eliminate a lot of excess flow and processing of sewage, as well as the possibility of eliminating the sewage backup when we do have excessive rain into property owners’ basements.

This is twice now that Trump has enlisted help from foreign powers in our election.

For a guy who said “no collusion,” he is admitting he’s fine with colluding.

Language---Immigrants in the past worked hard to learn English. Why shouldn't Spanish speakers? Surely AJ and Munchman are not saying that Spanish-speakers are incapable of learning English, are they?

aj0201

Some immigrants did, some didn’t. Nobody should be forced to learn and speak another language, that’s what I’m saying.

James Bond1

Our founders initiated the requirement that immigrants speak English. Pretty good idea. Worked pretty well for 200 years. Why change now. It worked.

aj0201

No they didn’t.

NOTE: Joe Biden says that if elected he "will cure cancer". If he is capable of doing that, why should it hinge on being elected? Wouldn't it be a great humanitarian gesture to cure cancer now, not dependent on election??

BERNIE...…..is a delightful canidate for the socialists(Dems)……….all his years in the Senate were soooooo productive...……….He introduced 364 bills. "3" Passed.

I finally figured out why all the bunched lace panties occur with the English Only idiots. When you already have feelings of inadequacy and inferiority, it must really be disconcerting to have people have intelligent conversations in front of you that you can't understand. Some of you have the same problem even when English Is spoken or written. Mea Culpa.

jdw64485

aj, I agree a person should be able to speak what ever they want. But, why should a business owner be forced to hire bilingual employee's to communicate with non-english speaking to customers. Or go to the extra expense of printing information in several differentl anguages

aj0201

No private business is forced to do that as far as I know. But it’s good business isn’t it? When I travel abroad, I seek out businesses that I can communicate with.

aj0201

And I don’t believe businesses should be forced to provide that. But I do think it’s good business to do so.

Actually, I used to live to go to Colorado. But it’s too extreme. Far too liberal or far too conservative. Everyone drives bumper to bumper on I-25 going 85 mph. I used to love visiting Ft Collins but it’s too crowded. I’ll admit I have spent much time on the Western Slope. Maybe I should go there.

Some info for the open border advocates, a/k/a the Democrat Congress: The Border Patrol, ICE and other immigration agencies report a NET 4500 illegals are entering and staying in the U. S. every day. This is the equivalent of a Buchanan County every 20 days; equivalent to the six NW Missouri Platte Purchase counties every 50 days and equal to two Congressional Districts every year. And it is those Congressional Districts the Democrats most want.

aj0201

Please list the democrats that advocate a completely open border....

Wrong.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Based on the UNANIMOUS votes by EVERY Democrat member of the House of Representatives to deny EVERY request for additional funds made by the administration to better secure the border and to provide humanitarian services to the hordes of asylum seekers sequestered at the border it is completely accurate to say the Democrat Congress has an open border policy.

James Bond1

CORRECT

aj0201

Wow! What spin! How do you do that without getting dizzy? That’s a complete misrepresentation of the truth.

Based on a Unanimous Decision..... Republicans Voted 100% to Deny Funds to Secure the 2020 Elections from Russian Hackers!!!
