Placeholder It's Your Call

Proceed with caution

Whenever Japan was our port authority, we received merchandise that said “Made in Japan,” even if it wasn’t made in Japan. Now we get merchandise that says “Made in China.” I think the president needs to remember that they are our port authority — they get money for things that go out and they get money for things that come in. Therefore, a trade war with them is a questionable move, political or financially.

Small business

If most of the jobs are by employers in Buchanan County with less than nine employees, how can we call the economy good? Where are the benefits for those employees?

Ask Russia

Trump will not do anything about background checks on guns. The Republicans won’t because of Trump, and the Republicans won’t do it because of the Russians. Why not just ask the Russians to begin with? It tells you something about background checks laws.

Down the tubes

Trump is telling us that we have no choice except to vote for him because we know our 401(k)s will go down the tubes if Democrats are elected. That’s not the way it was before. A Republican was in the White House in 2008 when the financial crisis hit, and 401(k) went down the tubes.

Social state

Chief Justice Earl Warren of the Supreme Court in 1952 said, “Many people consider the things which government does for them to be social progress, but they regard the things government does for others as socialism.” Learn the difference between social progress and socialism before you throw your hat into the ring here on It’s Your Call, and say things that are absolutely fake.

Foreign asset

Trump should be charged with treason. First he backs Russia and said he believes them more than he did our own FBI and CIA; now he’s conspiring with Israel to deny our own congresswomen access to their country.

Never again

I would not have voted for the library ballot initiative if I would have known beforehand that the St. Joseph Public Libraries were going to start having drag queen story hours for little children. I feel it is inappropriate. I feel it’s an indoctrination for young children into the LBGT whatever lifestyle and trying to tell them everything’s OK when some things are not. I feel it’s not appropriate to use our money for something like that. And I feel that the library should have been upfront and let people know they’re doing something like that.

Editor’s note: Just to be clear, the library tax levee issue that passed earlier this month was for Rolling Hills Consolidated. The drag queen story hour scheduled for next month will be held at the St. Joseph Public Library

“"Our great American companies are hereby ordered to immediately start looking for an alternative to China, including bringing our companies HOME and making your products in the USA," Trump wrote



This is socialism. Or fascism. Take your pick.

You catch somebody cheatin' in the poker game you can either shoot 'em or look for another table, latter being the better choice.

James Bond1

Please explain how it could be socialism...…………?

aj0201

Socialism is the government control or ownership of the means of production. Trump ordering companies to do anything is essentially a form of socialism at best, fascism at worst.

“Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: "I am the first and I am the last; besides me there is no god.”

‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭44:6‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Tell that to the "Unholy Ghost" who devoted eight years to fanning the flames of racial hatred and violence

aj0201

Only to snowflakes like you. He never said “I am the chosen one” and liked comments about him being the “second coming of God.” Trumps blasphemy has 0 to do with Obama.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Obama's eight-year campaign of racial disharmony resulted in hundreds more incidents of death, injury and destruction than Trump's alleged blasphemy ever will.

aj0201

Blasphemy is sin. Sin is death. Millions will die by following the antichrist. Those who refuse to stand against blasphemy reject God. They will die. There is no “alleged blasphemy” here. It is real and it happened. Trump has a messianic complex that is mirroring that of what the antichrist will be like, just on a smaller scale. Quit making excuses. Blasphemy is not a “victimless crime.”

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Those "who stand AGAINST blasphemy" are going to die, too. It's just the way things are. Yes, everyone who has made a sinful blasphemous comment or has had a sinful blasphemous thought, everyone of them are going to die. Don't need a sinful shrink to tell me that.

aj0201

No. Those who stand with God don’t die.

B4

Even Satan knew scripture - obviously aj is the mouthpiece for Satan. Today's comments provide all the proof we need for that fact.

aj0201

You, like the others B4, stand with blasphemy. You’re ok with it.

B4

aj - do you know what blasphemy is? Read your comments...carefully...and may God help you understand how you have committed the unforgivable sin...Satan has a seat all reserved personally just for you! You have certainly proved yourself as an anti-Christ follower today!

aj0201

Calling anyone “the second coming of God” is blasphemy. And liking it is blasphemous. Not only that, in relation to the Jewish people and how it was said, is anti Semitic.

aj0201

When did I blaspheme the Holy Spirit?

JohnQTaxpayer

All of you who have fooled yourselves that trump has made America Great again look at today's stock market and money market!!!!!

zzsnot303

goody goody lol

zzsnot303

the stock market is down based on several things.. illegal immigrants, a rowdy unpredictable Iran, ships being refused docking, China theatrics, N. K. missles, Boris Johnson, Brexit failure, Strait of Hormuz, and many other flashpoints..it has NOTHING to do with Trump or Pelosi, etc...not even the loudmouth four....there are only a couple fools here, one of which is munchmaid

munchman

Gee farmers and American business forget about having a market in China because t rump has ordered Business not to trade with China. What a steaming bag feces this administration is.

aj0201

He’s “The Chosen One.” He alone can fix things.

zzsnot303

right !! cut china off !!!!

zzsnot303

boo hoo, no fireworks and no cheap toys

munchman

Gee who would have thought "America First" would have isolated us from the rest of the world??? Especially from our allies. Watch t rump act like a bull in a china shop at the G7 this weekend as he begs for sa global economy meeting there. Gee who would have thought he was a globalist at heart?

zzsnot303

perhaps the rest of the world will stop begging our money !!!

munchman

T rump has stated today that he will cut Social Security and Medicare as a priority for his second term. What do you think about that Connie's?!?!

zzsnot303

self sufficient...get the game going !!

munchman

It's on days like today I wish there really was a H ELL!!! David Koch died today.

Sleepy Ginsberg is next. Get ready to welcome conservative jurist Amy Barrett to the Supreme Court as an Associate Justice.

Ginsburg....pancreatic cancer... (don't care)

munchman

I don't know if Colo is taking a break or has been kick off of this comment section by a politically biased being but I think JohnQTaxpayer should be kicked off for referring to aj by a slang expression for a woman's genitalia. But then I guess it depends on your political persuasion whether you get thumbs up or down.

zzsnot303

lets hope he is GONE

JohnQTaxpayer

I don't know if Colo is taking a break or has been kick off of this comment section by a politically biased being but I think munchman should be kicked off for referring to himself by a slang expression for a what drag queens do to a man's genitalia. But then I guess it depends on your political persuasion whether you get bottoms up or down.

munchman

Aunt Bee please re read your 9:42 comment about Obama and my reply.

beelog

Proceed with caution---Caller, what are your credentials to make such a judgement? Do you realize that Trump is playing the "long game", and not the "short"? The U.S. has been getting the short end of the stick for decades on our trade agreements. He is only trying to even the playing field--which will benefit America for decades to come. The fact is, both China and Japan need us far more than we need them--and previous administrations have failed to take advantage of our production superiority.

beelog

Foreign asset--Caller, where do you come up with this garbage? Don't you follow the news, or do you just listen to MSNBC and CNN (which are fake news)? Tlaib was offered a humanitarian visa which she huffily rejected--putting her hate above her family member. Omar, Tlaib, and Cortez cause trouble wherever they go--Pelosi and now Nadler are trying to teach them decorum, but they are unwilling students.

beelog

Ask Russia--Caller, the Mueller report proved that the Russian connection was false. Indeed, in the coming months you will find that it was the Democrats who were playing dirty---and don't be surprised if some of the "lofty" aren't brought back down to earth.

beelog

Trump---Isn't it interesting that liberals are so upset that Trump won't roll over and acquiesce to their demands? It was liberals who took to the streets in protest of his election (crybabies) and began calling him names and screaming at everything he does. When he responds "in-kind", they begin to whine that he is "not playing nice" (translation: doing what we want). Liberals--when you start a fight, don't be surprised if your opponent plays by your rules.

beelog

Small business---Gee, isn't it sad that they have jobs? Isn't it great that they are not forced to stay with the job if they are not satisfied! Isn't it sad that they are not forced to hand over their hard-earned dollars to a union official in a cushy office and maintain his lifestyle?

aj0201

“When I’m looking for a leader who’s gonna sit across the negotiating table from a nuclear Iran, or who’s gonna be intent on destroying ISIS, I couldn’t care less about that leader’s temperament or his tone or his vocabulary. Frankly, I want the meanest, toughest son of a gun I can find. And I think that’s the feeling of a lot of evangelicals. They don’t want a Casper Milquetoast as the leader of the free world.” — Pastor Robert Jeffress, Trump Supporter, supposed follower of the Prince of Peace.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

The Pastor correctly identified the Iran issues as menaces requiring a strong leader to resolve, not some self-serving bureaucrat.

aj0201

Point missed.

James Bond1

We found out how much we could get screwed out of for eight solid years as Obumer gave away everything in sight to his Muslim buddies. Remember when elected the first thing he did was hit the road to get to Africa and begin the distribution...………...He wanted everyone in Africa to have at least as much as anyone in the United States.

aj0201

Another one missing the point.

munchman

Maybe someday you will see the folly of religion. Maybe you won't and I won't begrudge you that. I just hate it when people dedicated their lives to a delusion.

jdw64485

My life is dedicated to my saviour and my family. Nothing will ever change that

aj0201

Nope. Your life is dedicated to your bank account. As long as the economy is good, morals don’t matter with you. Those are your words.


zzsnot303

bad me, i have no religion

zzsnot303

the pastor is correct

aj0201

No

aj0201

Down the tubes, the low information, low educated voter will try to say that Obama has a “messianic complex” because he spoke of raising the ocean levels. They miss the part where he was talking about the will of the American people and used language like “people” “us” and “we” not once referring to himself. They want to compare that to a man who takes credit for being called “like the second coming of God,” looks to the heavens and calls himself “the Chosen One” and says “I alone can fix it” and “you have to vote for me.” They’ve admitted that his morals aren’t of consequence as long as the economy is doing better. It seems the true, living Messiah has something to say about serving two masters, one being money. These people are wolves in sheep’s clothing and will respond viscously when these simple truths are pointed out. They will be easy targets for the antichrist.

zzsnot303

blah, blah, blah

aj0201

A fine representation of your vocabulary.

zzsnot303

anyone who believes any THING from aj the shrink is a da*m fool

munchman

And intelligence in responding!

Marty_Chuzzlewit

I could have sworn Obama said he was sent to Earth to heal the planet and LOWER the ocean levels, not RAISE them. But, that was while watching CNN so it could likely have been fake news.

aj0201

Maybe I have it backward, but he didn’t say he “was sent.”

Marty_Chuzzlewit

His meaning, his unmistakable message, was that a mere mortal could not heal the planet and cause the oceans to recede, tasks he was chosen to perform.

B4

aj gets easily confused - he's in a Satan induced stupor.

aj0201

Whew Marty. You’re reading a lot into what he said. He never said “I.”

munchman

Swear all you want you still don't know ca ca.

jdw64485

Why is it liberals always come back with the same BS. What makes liberal's always right. There are just as many if not more uninformed and low educated as conservatives.

aj0201

Ah, whatever. You defend a man who calls himself “The Chosen One.” He likes that he’s been called “the second coming of God.” And you defend and support that because, well, the economy is good. You’re sickening, just like he is.

jdw64485

I never once said i support that comment. I did say I supported the President. I did say he's doing a good job. Despite the opposition he faces each day. So, if going to belittle and insult me get it right. Which you have never done. You have a lot of gall calling someone sickening when you support a organization that murders babies. You can't get any more sicker than that. Oh, i know you're going to say you don't support them. But we all know you do.

munchman

So you're adding blasphemy to the list of thing against your beliefs that you are willing to turn your back on for the sake of your politics??? Now you know why I see reality when it comes to hocus pocus and the CHINOS who attend the Church of The Blinding Light, you blatant hypocrite. Your actions belie your beliefs. And Jesus wept.

aj0201

And I didn’t say you did support the comment. I said you support the man who made the comment. One that claims he’s the chosen one. You support the man who makes that claim. One who likes being called the second coming of God. You support him.

aj0201

And you really do support him in words and action. I don’t support Planned Parenthood but you just assume I do. You’re bearing false witness on top of everything else. You admit that morals don’t matter as long as you get the results you’re looking for.

aj0201

Let it be known that when Trump engaged in blasphemy, you sat down.

jdw64485

Yes. I support our real President. I sipport America. I support all the born and unborn babies of the world. I support Women's rights with the exception of murdering her unborn babies. Heck I even support your right to insult people on this form. See I support a lot of things




aj0201

And you support blasphemy and antisemitism.

munchman

Maybe it is because they rely on factual reporting and don't repeat conspiracy and lies. I don't know about truth and freedom but I do know it always makes you right. I hope this honest explanation will calm your fears and quil your curiosity,

jdw64485

munchman, i have no fears. I live each day for the Lord. Your Father weeps each day in heaven for you.


aj0201

Jdw lives for his bank account.

Wow. The thought of a man or woman who like to crossdress theatrically has really caused a lot of amydiala swelling in the Chicken's today!!! Get a grip kiddies. They are not coming to take you away it is the men in the white coats that are.

WakeUpUS

From 'The Christian Post DotCom':

A clinical counselor who has worked with over 4,000 serial predators is urging parents to be vigilant after a Texas library hosted a Drag Queen Story Hour for kids featuring a reader who has a criminal record. Parents in Texas discovered that David Lee Richardson, who goes by the drag name "Miss Kitty Litter" and has been participating in Drag Queen Story Hour events for the Austin Public Library System over the past year, has a criminal record for prostitution. This is not the first case of a library inviting Drag Queen Story Hour readers with a criminal history to read to and interact with young children. Two men charged with sexually assaulting a child were allowed to read to children at a library in Houston last year. The group Mass Resistance, which has been at the forefront of exposing other sex offenders hiding behind drag names elsewhere in the state, posted evidence of Richardson's history from the Texas Department of Public Safety on its website Tuesday. A criminal history search document shows that in 1996, Richardson was arrested and convicted of offering sex for money, which is prohibited in the state penal code. Activists also highlighted Richardson's social media postings from earlier this year, which included extremely lewd messages and photos that included swear words, references to prostitution, and celebrations of sexual violence like sado-masochism.

Jon Uhler, a licensed professional counselor who has worked clinically with approximately 4,000 serial predators for over 11 years, said in an interview with The Christian Post on Wednesday that he believes Drag Queen Story Hour events constitute "the greatest grooming program ever devised" and predators "are laughing all the way to the bank." While drag queens reading stories to children at public libraries has been billed as an innocuous activity, community groups and mothers who resist are right to oppose it, he adds, because sexual predators and offenders prioritize convincing people to doubt their instincts and think that their "red flags" are nonsense.[huh]

WakeUpUS

'Drag Queen Story Hour'



Stop voting for higher taxes for Fairy Tales to be pushed off into our children's psyches by Leftist-agenda radical freaks. Read to them at home about what God did back in the days of Sodom & Gomorrah, and stop sending them to public schools. [huh]

WakeUpUS

So is it my imagination, or do weird, Leftist kooks 'gravitate' towards 'counseling' troubled, impressionable, young minds (ala 'Senator Palpatine') like leasbian P.E. Teachers gravitate toward teaching girl's gym classes, or pedos to Boy Scout leaders..? Which comes first, the mental disease, or the job position..? [whistling][huh]

This from a man who believes the Sandy Hook shooting was a theatrical staging, 9/11 was conducted by our government, Hillary and the DNC were running a child sex slavery ring out of a pizzeria in D.C. You judge the validity of his sources and his statements

munchman

All of you progressives here do you remember the good old days when we had a real president in the White House and the Connie Snowflakes spent 8 years spouting lies about him like the t rump egged on issue of Birtherism, or jiminy and Our Lady of Perpetual Conspiracy and their scared little laments about a Muslim behind every door in the White house because Barack HUSSEIN Obama was a Muslim even though he worshiped in a black christian church in Chicago and christian churches in D.C., Everyone know that it isn't a sin punishable by death for a Muslim to worship anywhere but a mosque. And when all of these shrinking violets managed to quote him it was taken out of context or it was some totally inane thing like when he was tired on the campaign stating there are 57 states. As I fondly look back at the helter skelter attempts by the Connie's to besmirch a man of character who had a moral foundation it makes me even more happy to realize that when aj or Colo or any progressive with integrity says anything about the current occupant of the White house it comes from truth and facts . When they lied about the Last Real President we could always prove their words were fantasies and lies. But that is the difference between Progressive thinking people and Connie's. Progressives live in the real world and Connie's live in a self created bubble. I like to call them Bubble lemmings.

Sociallyunacceptable

The last real democrat in the white house was JFK. The rest have all been wannabe's

beelog

Socially--I agree. The Democrat Party began to change under LBJ and a little later Bill Clinton finished the job. That is when I switched political parties. Democrats became a puppet for the radical elements who severed relations with mainstream America in order to push a socialist agenda, aimed a giving power to the non-producers, making them increasingly dependent on "government" for their livelihood and voting for increased benefits at every election. America was built by people of initiative, people proud to contribute to the good of the nation and producing prosperity in the process. It is a great sin, a great disservice to humanity, to make people dependent on the government for their very existence.

Little John munchman, maybe the Obamas will invite you to visit them in their Turkeyland mansion, your credentials are impeccable

beelog

zzsnot---Democrats were blinded by the fact that Obama was articulate. He talked a good game, but he delivered little. When he drew a "line in the sand" with Syria, and failed to respond when the line was crossed, demonstrated his weakness as a president.

munchman

He along with t rump's new Enemy number one of the people; the FED' brought America back from Bush's 2008 Recession which almost turned into a depression. Or did you miss that because of you cognitive dissonance. Oh and he signed a treaty that the little boy who hated him so much tore up. That treaty stopped the Iranian Nuclear Threat which now we face again again with the prospect of going to war with them. Oh and lets not forget how the infant politician in the White house tore up Reagan's treaty to stop Nuclear proliferation and now our Grandkids and Great Grandkids can now learn how to dive under their desks like you and I did as well as practice active shooter drills since he lied (imagine that) about stricter background checks because "NRA Wayne" called in his 30,000,000 iou.

come on, Munchie, that's a lot of baloney. Why don't you do a little homework....where do you think Obumer came from...……..yeh, that's what I thought...….Muslim all the way. Tell me about his visits to Christian Churches ….you know darn well it was nothing but a visit for the press to take pictures. At least you got something right...……….he sure did visit all 57 States. Have you noticed which mosques he visits these days

aj0201

Which mosques does he visit?

munchman

No. Tell us or did you lying source not give you that information. If you want to believe the Birtherism nonsense then continue to wallow in you insane senility.. Even your anti hero t rump grudgingly admitted it was a lie during the campaign. Ask popski or jdw if it is true. You guys are your brothers keeper, but it seems the always honest and correct Left is the only one trying to help him in the confusion of his old age. I would be embarrassed if someone from my side of the aisle made as big a fool as Jiminy does on a daily basis.
