Placeholder It's Your Call

Word origin

No one created the word fetus to make it easier to think of people or an unborn child as less human. That is a falsehood. Fetus is a medical term that describes a period of gestation. Get your facts straight.

Poor geese

I was wondering why the pond on Beck Road is fenced off so the geese can’t get to the water? It’s cruel to see the geese wanting in the water. They’ve always been there.

Pump patrol

Around the first of the week of May oil prices per barrel of oil were $63 something a barrel. Well, now you read in the paper and it says $53. I’m wondering, it’s been over a month and what’s going on with gas prices? Nobody wants to come down on prices but when it goes up 10 bucks, they are jumping on that price increase. What’s the matter with this? Doesn’t anybody read the paper?

Blowing wind

Who can ever believe the Missouri Public Service Commission when they make statements on the Grain Belt Express? “The project will deliver low cost wind energy to Missouri wholesale customers, who in turn will provide lower cost energy to their retail customers.” Totally false. Ask the state of Kansas.

A big thanks

Well, it’s better late than never. Thank you, former Mayor Bill Falkner. He brought up the land bank information a couple of years ago. It got passed. The governor came to St. Joseph and signed it into being for real. Things do happen slow with government, we all know that.

Get out

This is on the article about the homeless. The best thing you can do for homeless people in St. Joseph is to run them out of town. Rewarding them with places to live and food and homes will not help them get a new life. You’re wasting your time and once the word gets out for the homeless, St. Joseph would be overrun with them. You need to take it and run them out of town like they used to.

So St. Joe

That sounds like St. Joseph. Just get Downtown on its feet again and put in parking meters.

Love the country

We spend all this time campaigning. It’s a year and a half before the election starts. It’s ridiculous. And then we spent all this time investigating. Two years of it and now they are going to investigate the stuff they found out while investigating. The president is doing the best he can. But the Democrats, when are they going to decide to do a little governing to help this country? They are supposed to be running this country for the love of this country, not for the love of their party.

On Josh Hawley. The News Press are painting this picture of Hawley in a good light, but never mentioned the fact that on the eve of Hawley's election, he spent an evening in New York with Eytan Laor, a billionaire and pro-Israel lobbyist. Hawley NEVER mentioned the meeting on any of his media accounts, but Laor did, along with a picture. This was on the very eve of the election. The problem is that the AIPAC lobby has a huge influence on Missouri office holders, especially over Eric Greitens, thank God he's gone, and other Missouri Congressmen including Mike Kehoe and and others. Israeli companies like Amdocs, ICL, Hacker USA, and others, have a deep hold on Saint Louis politics, and are themselves very nefarious organizations. Greitens himself flew to DC to attend an AIPAC conference, but never mentioned that fact on Twitter or Facebook, but his campaign manager Chrismer did, which he deleted from his own account after Greitens' affair was made public and Chrismer jumped ship so fast. Saint Joseph residents also should never forget those billboard attacks targeting Congressman Schaaf. Both those billboards were funded by Sheldon Adelson, another billionaire Israel lobbyist who is working even now to pass pro-Israel legislation in Missouri, that is a serious affront to our Constitution, a law that would make it illegal to criticize Israel anywhere in Missouri, and would affect all financial transactions in the State, and would make it illegal to even debate issues involving Israel on US campuses, and crazy as that may seem, it's very true.

Sanders and Trump use God to protect Israel from criticism, a nation where prostitution and abortion are not only legal, but liberally available. People who use religion as a justification for a lack of common sense should be called out. Sanders did just that and only proves that there is a sizable population in the US with no common sense but love using religion and God to justify their opinions.

What do you call it when a person can watch a video where t rump says twice he would accept intervention from an enemy government in an election and would not necessarily report it to the FBI? In the simplest it the t rump fanatics have reached rock bottom with their Cognitive Dissonance and will blindly follow t rump into to treason against our once great country. I guess it's easy to defend this steaming bag of waste if you put your fingers in your ears and close your eyes and go NAH, NAH, NAH. You guys are as delusional as a recent entrant to you mythical heaven. St. peter was giving him a tour and they turned the corner and were confronted by an infinite line of people with their noses planted firmly against the wall. The guy asked who are these people to which Peter replied "Oh those are the Baptist. They think they are the only ones here." My point is that the gop mindset is that only they can determine what is true and what they find not matching their narrow minded fanaticism can not be.

Israel's former Defense Minister Lieberman flew into the US and took possession of dozens of our F35 military aircraft during a formal ceremony at the Lockheed Martin plant in Houston Texas, and nobody made any mention of the fact that Lieberman was born and raised in Russia and a close personal friend and confidant of Putin.

Well....they’re not “conservative.” They’re nationalists. No conservative would support a President who has increased spending and the national debt on an economic policy based on tariffs paid by the American consumer. No conservative would support a President who is risking markets for farmers to make political points. No conservative would support a President who engages in systematic lying and is willing to accept help from adversarial nations to win an election. They’re not conservatives. They’re nationalists.

Such denigration for the great state of Missouri is deplorable! Why the rancor? Many successful businessmen and women call Missouri their birthplace/home. A p pro-life governor is leading the state as a model for other states to follow. While St. Louis is celebrating the Blues victory, the city of Kansas City is celebrating the selection by the U.S. Department of Agriculture as the new home for its Economic Research Service and National Institute of Food and Agriculture. USDA Secretary Sonny Perdue said in a statement. “The Kansas City Region has proven itself to be hub for all things agriculture and is a booming city in America’s heartland. There is already a significant presence of USDA and federal government employees in the region, including the Kansas City ‘Ag Bank’ Federal Reserve. This agriculture talent pool, in addition to multiple land-grant and research universities within driving distance, provides access to a stable labor force for the future. The Kansas City Region will allow ERS and NIFA to increase efficiencies and effectiveness and bring important resources and manpower closer to all of our customers.” The USDA estimated 547 jobs would relocate to the Kansas City area by the end of 2019.

Endless investigations---over issues already investigated. Hate is not the way to run a government, but that appears to be all Democrats know.

The entirety of government is obstructionist now. The republicans were the same way with Obama. They didn’t really investigate him but they’ve spent far more time investigating Hillary than the dems have Trump.

What Munchman and a few of his socialist cronies don't tell you is that they don't have anything to lose by unskilled, basically illiterate migrants coming to our country because they're already out of the work force and it won't impact them. They also live in communities where they won't see much if any impact on their lives due to the crime and other things these people bring with them. They won't have to deal with the lower wages these people cause or the higher rent because landlords will be able to stack them like cordwood in substandard housing. These unskilled, illiterate people do not add to the communities into which they are forced upon the rest of us. Lots of them bring only misery and the lawlessness from their former lives.

Thecalvin

So are you saying you will do those jobs? Are you going to work and raise a family on picking fruits and vegetables? While idiots scream about immigrants working jobs they won't work because of the low pay they love those cheap produce prices.
