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.
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?
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.
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.
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.
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
