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.
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.
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.
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.
