Placeholder It's Your Call

Dots, dots, dots

With regard to the Democrats stalling with all this rhetoric, let’s see if we can connect the dots. Number one, there are a lot of Democrats who openly call themselves socialists. Look up the definition of socialist and communist and tell me if you can tell the difference. Number two, remember Secretary of State Hillary Clinton sold a large percentage uranium to Russia. And lastly, I still am waiting for the socialist Democrats to explain to me what then President Obama meant when he leaned into a Russian representative and said, “I’m in the middle of an election. Wait, then I can be more flexible.” Awake America, beware of the Trojan horse.

Inflation impact

Too bad Trump doesn’t realize the tariff war with China hurts the American people more than people in China because people will have to pay more for products here.

By the book

Too bad that Bernie does your model Christian socialism like they did the book of Acts where people sold everything and shared with one another.

Poor critters

It’s pretty sad when we can’t afford to feed the animals in Krug Park but we can spend $90 million on redevelopment of a flood-prone area.

Editor’s note: The city isn’t necessarily spending $90 million. The council will vote on specific projects later. Sort of funny

It made me laugh how the City Council, mayor and Mr. Woody all decided how to spend money. I understand some of it made sense. But I do not understand the money coming from the casino. When we originally decided on having the casino, it was supposed to go to the school to help students. It had nothing to do with other garbage. And I think we need to realign our infrastructure. We have streets that are falling apart.

Editor’s note: Since voters authorized riverboat casinos in the 1990s, facilities have contributed gaming tax revenue to “home dock governments.” For the St. Jo Frontier Casino, that revenue goes to Buchanan County and the city of St. Joseph. Tragic pony

I saw story on the news last night about a pony that was killed and it just broke my heart. I pray that whoever did that senseless horrible act will be caught and really, really punished. How could anybody be so cruel to an innocent pony?

Stand by your man

When you hear dishonesty and refuse to speak against it, when you hear and see a bully pushing people around and refuse to stand against that bully, then you are condoning what he done. That’s exactly what the Republicans in the Congress and his cabinet did to President Trump. The only time they spoke out was to stand around him and say he was the greatest president that ever existed and that it was an honor to serve him.

By the book....Bernie Sanders has accomplished the one and only thing he knows his supporters morally, ethically and intellectually expect of him and all their hierarchy, and even more in themselves - absolutely nothing. Having zero expectations is the basis for excusing the Clintons' consummate sleaze with "character doesn't matter" and Obama's cowardice with "leading from behind". Creepy Joe, the "hands-on" candidate especially if you're an 8 year old girl, exemplifies the left; he's a subculture soap bubble, empty, fragile, full of hot air, flits in whatever direction the breeze in blowing each second and has to recreated every few moments. He is libercratism.

Dots, dots, dots---The Left, in an effort to soften socialism, are trying to claim there is a difference between "political" socialism and "economic" socialism. That claim is nothing but semantics. The two are totally entwined and are exactly the same thing. Don't be fooled. Ask yourself, if socialism is go good, why are those on the Left trying to make a distinction which does not exist. Political and economic socialism go hand in hand, no matter how some try to tell you differently.

Oh, now you’re putting words in my mouth wuusy. Where’d ya get the idea I desire socialism? And notice how this has become a personal attack rather than answering the earlier question. Who is, and in what way are they, advocating a turn to true socialism?

Good grief jdw. I don't turn them off. I listen. Just as I listen to Trump. I opened a twitter account just so I could follow Trump. When he first announced his candidacy, I couldn't believe that he was tweeting such things. I opened the account so I DIDN'T rely on what the news said, but rather got it straight from him. I listen to them all. Nobody is advocating a switch to a socialist economic model for the US. They just aren't. Paying for social programs isn't socialism. They aren't the same. My understanding of their position ISN'T the same as me being their supporter. I'm not. I won't vote for Bernie nor would I vote for AOC.

WakeUpUS

Maybe you're a socialist but don't know it yet, aj.

Ah, the ol’ spirit of the law/letter of the law argument. So you’re not for a strict interpretation of the Constitution? Funny, I didn’t see you as a “living document” kind of person.

And as a Christian, there is only one way. You may be open to wide interpretation of God’s will, I’m not.

I also don’t think you understand the “letter of the law” argument with the Pharisees. You’ve missed the point on that.

aj0201

James they’re advocating an increase in social program spending. That isn’t the same as socialism. Furthermore, NOBODY has a problem with social program spending. It’s just what programs you agree with.

James Bond1

It sounds like most of those socialist canidates are headed that direction. They propose the change...………..but they sure don't explain how they will implement it. I've been waiting for how they will get the money...……...I guess the 70% tax rate is as close as they get.

I wonder if in pre-Socialist Venezuela (before free-speech was suppressed), if there was a Venezuelan counterpart of 'aj0201' making posts in the press that Hugo Chavez wasn't really advocating Socialism, just some increased spending on social programs & freebies for the poor people 'to equal things out'..?

All countries SPY on each other. They always have. In an attempt to stay safe.

But some traitors set up unprotected servers full of State Secrets to allow other countries buy secrets with feigned 'plausible deniability(?), or even help allow the sale of Uranium mining rights to rival nations.

Some countries historically EXECUTE traitors who have been caught betraying their countrymen in such a treasonous manner.

Sometimes, those people with the unprotected servers, who aided in the Uranium sales, actually HIRE the spies from other countries & purchase fake 'dossiers' from them to use against their political opponents, in collaboration with corrupt intelligence agencies.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Standing by their man....many of the Republican representatives in the 115th Congress who were never-Trumpers are now standing in the unemployment lines wondering what happened to them in the 2018 mid-term election. Or, like John Kasich, relegated to making guest appearances on fake news TV shows.

aj0201

They should become part of Trumps soviet style farming collective that now needs another $15 billion to survive “protective” tariffs.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Since the time of NAFTA American workers harmed by trade issues have been indemnified through the Economic Dislocation and Worker Adjustment Assistance (EDWAA) program and the Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) program as well as unemployment benefit extensions, all carrying costs paid by taxpayers. Payments to our agricultural sector for costs associated with a disruption in trade beyond the sector's control should be considered in the same vein.

aj0201

“In the same vein....???” Because it’s different it should be considered the same? NAFTA was an act of Congress. “Protectionist” tariffs are an act of the President. And mind you, an act of a Republican Congress.

aj0201

Yes, both are beyond farmers control. They’re a testament to the fact that republicans don’t actually believe in a free market economy.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

The trade issue with China falls outside of "protectionism" and "free trade" discussions. I do fear the fallout to our agricultural sector will be very adverse and long lasting, much as was the grain embargo imposed by Carter. Marginal lands in other countries are being brought into production which could result in huge commodity surpluses once the trade wars are settled. In the short term, I see no alternative to indemnifying production agriculture for market losses resulting from the China tariff decision. More is at stake than just the welfare of the farmers themselves, other sectors are highly dependent on a prosperous agriculture. We can't let them all fail.

aj0201

Seems to me there may have been far better ways to handle the trade issues than with these tariffs.

aj0201

And his tariffs most certainly are protectionist. As he said the other day “build it in the US. No tariffs.”
