Above the law
In response to “Read the signs”: You just have to realize that there are people in St. Joe who can’t read that must be handicapped. I frequent a fast food restaurant on the Belt Highway across from the old miniature golf place and there are people who park in the handicapped spots who are 17, 18, or 23, 25 years old, who can run to the door and yet take up a handicapped spot without a handicapped tag. These people don’t care. They think they’re above the law; the law is for everyone else.
I don’t exactly understand why people are so upset that Jeffrey Epstein killed himself. I would think they’d think, “good riddance.” But I do remember back when Prince Andrew was called “Randy Andy,” so I’m not surprised that the two of them were friends.
To the “Point of disagreement” caller, I would say Trump is doing far worse to living, breathing people of American than abortion.
The truck that overturned on southbound Interstate 29 was not a tractor-trailer. It was a one-piece unit referred to as a “straight truck.” How in the world can somebody who works at the paper — had to live at least 20 years to be old enough to be employed there — how can you remain that appallingly ignorant?
With every new generation that comes along, the youngest always believes they are smarter than their parents. Being smart, for example, may include keeping up with the latest technology and that sort of thing. Being wise is where the parents win out. Your parents are there to save the day when the know-it-all younger generations get stumped on matters that should be common sense. So before you young’uns decide to kill us old folks off, you are finding out the hard way that we old geezers may be worth hanging on to.
Bad every day
Apparently, the Royals are so bad, the News-Press writers don’t even know what day they’re playing. This has been ongoing. It’s pretty bad when they don’t care what day it is, whether they’re playing or not. But it isn’t worth watching anyway, the way they’re playing.
Just like us
I’m calling in about the “Island of woe” caller. I don’t understand, “you’d better be careful what you wish for, we could end up living like those people.” Those people are Americans.
What’s the big deal about sunset clauses? We all come with our own sunset clause — we’re all going to die. The only issue is whether we want to provide an adequate education for the future generations like that which was provided for us. If not, vote no; if so, vote yes. It’s very simple.
Last Sunday, I attended a church where the pastor stated that our society should be more concerned about upholding the Second Commandment as stated by Jesus in the 20th chapter of Matthew — “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” — and then there would be much less concern about the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution, the right to bear arms. I think that is a very good point.
