Placeholder It's Your Call

Hazy lines

I would like to call in about how many of the streets in St. Joseph are not properly marked with lines and arrows. This is a hazard. We have been out trying to teach our son to be a safe and well-educated new driver, and with lines or extremely faint lines and arrows, it makes it extremely difficult. This is not safe for anyone. Isn’t there a law or an ordinance that requires streets to be properly maintained? This needs to be corrected.

Both sides now

Yes, I was reading the paper about the murders and the (Associated Press) stories you guys got, and I see where it’s all that darn President Donald Trump’s fault, him and his mouth. He must be a racist or something. But hold on a minute! What about the Dayton shooter? I heard he was a far-left loon. He supports Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Antifa. You know when you say words matter, what about the words they say? That all white people are racist, and everything’s America’s fault, and there’s concentration camps on the border? Why can’t you just be honest and put in both sides? The story didn’t have anything about that.

No apologies

To the person who called in, “The World of Trumps,” I’m a Republican voter and I was so glad to be rid of that terrible Barack Obama’s presidency. We had lies, cheating, and telling everybody what to do with our children. I was sick and tired of his eight years, and I was glad to get a president who would stand up for this country and not go overseas and apologize for us, and bow down to foreign leaders. That’s why I voted Republican, and that’s why I’m going to vote for Trump again in 2020.

A new name

“Racist” used to be the term liberal Democrats used to stifle conservatives. Now they use “white supremacist.” How long before they wear that out?

Guns are gone

Adolph Hitler told the German people, “Give us your guns and we’ll keep you safe.” Well, here we go again. That new red flag bill is just part of confiscation. It’s coming, and there’s going to be a lot of trouble.

Doesn’t add up

Why do the Democrats want to ruin health care for the 200 million Americans who have health insurance, just for the sake of providing Medicare to the 30 million who don’t? Check out the VA if you want an example of government-run health care. No thank you.

He won, he won

For the last time, by the rules set forth in the Constitution of the United States, Donald Trump won the presidency by winning the Electoral College. It doesn’t matter who got the most (popular) votes, or who bought the most votes.

Creepy Joe displayed his disgusting behavior yet again at the Iowa State Fair this week. A girl asked him how many genders there are; she said he seemed confused and then forcefully grabbed her by the arm. Poor ole Joe should have stuck with giving his campaign speech to the goats at the fair - they wouldn't care where he grabbed and groped them.

1st Amendment anyone...? “The White House has drafted an ambitious new proposal to regulate social media platforms, with the aim of combating perceived bias against conservatives, according to a new report from CNN. The proposal, some details of which were previously reported by Politico, would call on the FCC to develop new regulations concerning how social media platforms are allowed to moderate their users.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

One has to wonder how Zuckerberg will "moderate" the users of Facebook. Maybe free psychoactive drugs or subliminal messaging. Or follow the Twitter formula and just dump the "immoderate" (conservative) users. There ya go!

aj0201

How he moderates it is his business, as long as he’s legal.

B4

He already "moderates" Facebook users. I've heard several users say their posts have been removed and/or they are prohibited from making comments for a length of time known as "Facebook jail". And yet the liberal diatribe continues to be okay and acceptable. Zuckerberg needs to held accountable for his double standard.

aj0201

Zuckerberg is a private person. Don’t like it? Don’t go on Facebook.

B4

It's social media you idiot.

aj0201

Very good B4. It’s social media. It’s still a private company and not subject to protecting your speech.

B4

aj - It's sure and factual that liberal speech is protected. So wanna explain the investigation?

aj0201

Sigh....you won’t understand because you’ve set yourself up as a victim.

aj0201

Do you believe that Breitbart or Judicial Watch give equal time to liberal thoughts?

B4

What a lunatical comment - sad but hilarious! Aj, you've outdone yourself! You win the stupid prize!

B4

Point? There is none. Those two entities aren't even close to being the same as Facebook. You have a pointless argument...but nice try! We won't take your prize away - you gave it your best!

aj0201

Sure they are. They are private media companies. They don’t protect your free speech.

B4

Now you're grasping at straws. Those two companies aren't social media companies like Facebook. Point your pointer somewhere else...you've reach the POINT of desperation.

aj0201

A social media company is somehow more responsible to provide you with free speech protection?? What law is that?

zzsnot303

Facebook, Inc. (NASDAQ: FB) went public with its initial public offering (IPO) on May 18, 2012. With a peak market capitalization of over $104 billion, the social networking company had one of the largest and most anticipated IPOs in history.

Big smiles and thumbs up for all the orphans in El Paso, right? 😀👍

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Do you agree with Biden that "poor kids" are just as bright as "white kids?"

aj0201

I don’t agree with Biden on almost anything. But that has nothing to do with Trump giving a thumbs up to this kiddo becoming an orphan.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

"The baby's uncle, Tito who stood next to the President, told the El Paso Times his brother was a supporter. "I want him to know our family stands with the President," he told the paper adding he also wanted to share with the President what his brother did to protect his family that day."





The child's family was proud to stand with the President and First Lady. From the photo it doesn't appear the baby was offended by the "thumbs up" gesture.

aj0201

No. I’m sure trump supporters aren’t offended. He could shoot somebody on 5th ave and they’d still support him. Uncle Tito is likely happy to get foster care $$ for the child.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

The news didn't identify the child as a "Trump supporter" or state any of the family had applied for financial aid. The photo of a family coming together in the aftermath of tragedy and welcoming the concern expressed for them by President Trump is difficult for most to see as hateful, but AJ manages to accomplish that effortlessly.

jdw64485

aj sure twisted that around. But then he's the king of twisting things around.

Concern? The whole thing has been an exercise in inflating his ego. He made a campaign video of the stop in Dayton.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Hate on, AJ, nobody cares....#TRUMP2020

aj0201

Oh I know they don’t care. Again, he could shoot someone and they wouldn’t care. Using mass shooting casualties for a political video is nothing to you guys.

B4

Elizabeth Warren and Kamala Harris used the "occasion" for fundraising from the Dayton, Ohio mass shooting. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) said she’s “heartbroken” about the shootings, which left 31 people dead, then asked for money for Sens. Doug Jones (D-AL) and Tina Smith (D-MN) in their respective Senate campaigns. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) asked supporters to split contributions between former Rep. Gabby Giffords’s (D-AZ) PAC, the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence, and Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.



What's worse? Offering thoughts and prayers after a tragedy or fundraising off it?

blame the illegal parents..the kids are being cared for

I'm pretty sure SJNP saves up until they have enough calls from whack jobs to be able to print a whole column of inanity insanity. When all you get is garbage from the ill informed then responding to this BS is pointless. Let the Connie's wallow in this stupidity. See you tomorrow.

I've seen many times that SJNP has done that with liberal whackoffs. What

Sociallyunacceptable

What's your point Johnny One Note?

zzsnot303

aj---- specifically you were 100 percent wrong about legality of the Springfield Walmart Arrest situation..consult a REAL lawyer for legal matters...google what conditions merit arrest as a terrorist (fire your legal consultant)

aj0201

What happened is open carry has now become a terror threat. There is no evidence he did anything but walk around with a legal weapon filming himself. I still don’t see the crime.

zzsnot303

lol, then you are dumber than a box of rocks

aj0201

Well, explain what crime was committed. Be specific. I bet you can’t....

zzsnot303

keep betting, keep reading...it's ALL spelled out psyco-babbler

aj0201

No it isn’t. Open carry has become a terror threat.

jdw64485

So you would rather had the armed man shoot a few first to be sure a crime was committed than to error on the side of safety? But then maybe that would have brought more into your office for trauma counseling.

aj0201

Jdw, then we have to look at everyone who is open carrying as a terror threat. Is that what you want?

B4

AJ's trauma counseling? His counseling business is a big joke. The truth about that is he goes down to the dog pound and counsels the dogs...so far none of them have bit him [ohmy][lol]

A gun is only a Tool. It needs an angry Leftist Democrat whacko in order to kill a bunch of people. [huh]

Or a Trump supporting psycho from Allen Texas.

99.9% of the time, an angry Leftist Democrat whacko, even including 'false-flag' killers

zzsnot303

of course YOU wouldn't ...

aj0201

I. Saw a man at Sam’s club a week or so ago open carrying. He magically wasn’t arrested. Why?

zzsnot303

I open carry..but i don't dress like the Walmart dude

aj0201

Tan cargo pants and a black T-shirt are illegal? They’re threatening?

zzsnot303

it's ALL spelled out on many news sites...gotta be a rock to NOT understand it

zzsnot303

talking to a rock is useless and a waste of time

jdw64485

Tell me what his reason was to carry an assault rifle at Walmart? That in its self would be suspicious. A open pistol in a holster not so much. Yesterday you quoted a 20 minute time limit on being stop for questioning siting the terry law. I looked up this law never found any time limits.

aj0201

What’s an assault rifle? 20 minutes is a guideline set forth on a Terry stop that officers have to develop probable cause for arrest. But there has to be “reasonable, articulable suspicion that a crime has or will take place.” But police cannot turn a lawful activity into suspicion. You guys are making the liberal case. His scary looking “assault rifle” is suspicious so therefore he shouldn’t be allowed to carry it????? Go put on a pink pu$$y hat!

Sociallyunacceptable

He probably wasn't dressed in body armor with multiple magazines Vaj.

aj0201

None of that is illegal, snowflake.

B4

aj is hilarious with his attempt to carry forth his "Socratic discussion". Ummmm...wonder what he would do if someone walked into his monkey business dressed in body armor and carrying an assault rifle along with multiple magazines. [huh]

zzsnot303

suspicion that a crime has or will take place....ARREST HIM

jdw64485

No we don't have to look at everyone as a terrorist. But he stood out. The police are a lot smarter than you in this matter. They have the needed information to make the decision you don't

aj0201

What made him stand out? His weapon? Did the scary black rifle change things?

jdw64485

Any rifle could be classified as a assault weapon. But the AK15 is the ones that normally carry that classification. I just wished someone in Texas or Ohio would have done the same. But then no crime was committed until the shooter's killed some people. I still day error on the side of safety. But aj doesn't want to inconvenient anyone the life's that's saved plays a little part if any

zzsnot303

MORE aj psyco babble...he just has this urgent need to argue with someone...anyone who will type back to him...a college educated psyco-loser.(note: careful, he might cry)

zzsnot303

Donald Trump won the presidency by winning the Electoral College--- you got THAT correct

zzsnot303

Ref flag bill.... let's not prejudge, wait and see

jdw64485

Red flag bill. Not the liberal way so that makes it wrong.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Along with a federal red flag law which will cause unfathomable reputational and financial damage to the hundreds of thousand innocent individuals maliciously reported as potential killers, along with that law should also be a law mandating mental health providers identify to the FBI those patients they see as threats to society. If we are going to disembowel the Second Amendment we just as well go all the way and also take out the Fourth Amendment.

aj0201

This issue in Springfield proves that. You’re right, Marty.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

You will, then, notify law enforcement authorities if any of your "clients" exhibit anti-social symptoms which could result in the "client" doing violence against others.

aj0201

Under some circumstances, I’m bound by law to do just that. It has to be a specific threat against a person. But there are portions of the law where I can petition the court for a person to be place in a temporary psych hold due to general concerns for safety. I’ve never had to do that, but I would. I’ve taken action on countless people intimating suicidal ideations.

B4

It's easy to see why they would be suicidal after enduring a counseling session with Aj - Hahahaha!

aj0201

And actually, as I read this back, any adult can petition the court due to a perceived safety issue. Violent or life threatening.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Everybody understands the utilization of restraining orders, but what the left is demanding in the content of a federal red flag law is not even a distant cousin. If the Senate and/or the President accede to those demands it will end protections afforded by the Fourth Amendment.

aj0201

I agree. And that was made clear yesterday with the reaction to the man in Springfield. He did not engage in an illegal activity but because people FELT like he would do something, he was arrested. Laws shouldn’t be about feelings.

James Bond1

we could begin with the 4 socialist "dips" that bring insanity to the world...…..they are as anti-social as anything/one I have ever known. We could restrict their behavior to their own bedroom...……...they could perform before their mirror. When they finally pass out , we would get 3 points.
