Placeholder It's Your Call

Lots of ammo

To the person who says putting restrictions on ammunition is going to stop mass shootings. First of all, there are billions of rounds of ammunition sitting around that will bother nobody forever. I personally have over 5,000 rounds of rifle ammunition in my home and it hasn’t hurt anybody. It never will. And what about the reloaders? People can buy reloading equipment, so it’s not going to do any good.

Overpopulated

I can’t believe a Republican congressman said rape and incest helped populate the world and we need more population. The world is overpopulated now, and people are starving, fleeing their homes, having more babies than they can take care of. And this country doesn’t want them if we have to supplement their care.

Truly sad

Back in the day, there were only two large corporations in St. Joseph that had extra-good paying jobs that had labor unions, three if you count all the railroads as one. We old timers know which companies I’m referring to. For what little you have to show for all the years of hard work from the so-called union jobs in this town is truly sad. Some of you are working past retirement age because the good old union jobs that you bragged about weren’t so good after all. Union jobs may be good in some cities if you choose the right companies. I just hate to see people struggling when they gave so much of themselves.

Low wages

How is it that there are always job positions open for our friends south of the border at mostly food-processing plants? I would love to see what kind of wages their cheapskate company owners are paying compared to those who are American citizens. These poor people are given false hope. They leave their country with nothing, and they move here, to a place where the economy is 10 times higher than where they came from. How do they get by financially, when they know packing up and going back home is not an option? Maybe we should ask St. Joe’s finest that question.

Thou art hypocrite

There is no bigger hypocrite in this world than an atheist who will quote scripture.

Good call

The Democrats can spin the facts however they like, but these two women who aren’t allowed to go to Israel made terrible statements about the Jewish people. And they shouldn’t go there. They don’t like the Jews, they have made that plain and clear. I heard someone say this will hurt our relationship with Israel. No, it will not. It will make it stronger. This country does not put up with anti-Semitism, and just because they got elected doesn’t mean they’re above that.

Guns to protect

In reference to “Drugs, weapons convictions in shooting suspect’s past”: This gentleman had convictions, he was in prison, was never supposed to have any weapons at all and yet he managed to get them. And that makes the argument that you shouldn’t take guns away from law-abiding citizens; they’re there to help protect and defend others.

Its called "irony," dear caller. Its ironic that the atheist probably knows more about the very book than the people that claim to manage their lives with and knows very well the reasons for not believing. The same can't be said for the person who believes or is upset about it enough to call, outraged about the dispute of how many angels can dance on the head of a pin. If more people actually read the bible, there would probably be more atheists.

T rump saying he wants us to buy Greenland is like an arsonist wanting to buy the building he is burning down.

munchman... they made fun of U.S. Purchase of Alaska, which turned out to be wonderful in natural resources & keeping Communist missile sites AWAY. For the same reasons, Greenland would be a PLUS for the USA, not a negative. If Russia or China gets it, it's NOT good for us geopolitically.[whistling][huh]

Art--the "racism" is in your head. Believe it or not, it is possible to criticize people of color for reasons other than skin color. Liberals call "racism" to the point where the term is meaningless.

munchman

You act as if everything he does and says is just well intentioned criticism. No wonder you don't have the sense nature gave a rock and will probably vote foolishly again. You are absolutely the poorest judge of character.

boy, I'm sure glad I don't support the socialists.

But you are good supporting the racists??

Heil Trump !! hehe

And those who support anti semites are racist as well.

Low wages---The liberal answer is to raise the minimum wage---resulting in fewer jobs, more work on the remaining workers, higher priced menus, and creating an inflationary atmosphere. When retail prices go up, it is the working poor who suffer the most. Democrats cannot fathom that fact.

zzsnot303

no doubt at all, this is true. only the payroll deductions (taxes) increase

jdw64485

When a company has to cut cost labor is the first to go. And i higher minimum wage would do just that. Don't lower the present wage. But let the employer dictate higher pay for pay or company bonuses for top tier employees.


beelog

Very good point jdw---pay levels should be guided by merit---they should not be another "entitlement" from the government.

munchman

So you in your finite wisdom you think Merit based income eliminates the need for COLA? Now open mouth and remove whole leg and HERE'S YOUR SIGN!

jdw64485

munchman cola should be tied in with the bonus.

guns to protect---the Left fails to acknowledge that the gun problem does not lie with law-abiding people. The Left fails to acknowledge that the real gun problem is with the dregs of society--the drug cartels and the street dealers who use guns to rob and brutalize innocent citizens. The worst possible solution is to dis-arm the "good guys" who simply wish to protect their families from the criminal elements. Chicago has strict gun laws and is one of the worst cities in the nation for gun violence---and it is not the legal owners who are participating in that violence. Liberalism prefers to punish the good guys and coddle the bad guys.

zzsnot303

excellent point !!

munchman

Have you ever heard anybody on the left say we want full background checks to protect us from "sane, law abiding citizens"? Have ever heard the lunatic fringe of the right denounce common sense protections like gun registration and full background checks.

munchie.. really, you need to consult aj0201 for his expert shrinkage advice

Good call--Tlaib and Omar belong to a religion based on hate for the Jewish people. Yet Israel survives despite being despised, surrounded, and outnumbered by the Islamic world. Jealousy can be a strong emotion.

aj0201

Why is anti Semitism wrong and anti Islam ok?

Sociallyunacceptable

Because you don't see Jews beheading their captors and destroying historical artifacts.

jdw64485

Israel has the strongest allie there is God.

Art Vandelay

LOL

aj0201

Really? Got Bible to back that up? Israel has turned her back on God. They reject Jesus and so reject God.

zzsnot303

opinions shared by one..meaningless

B4

Really? Where does it say in the Bible that because the Jewish people don't presently recognize Jesus as their Savior that God has turned "his back" on them? Jesus had harsh words for the Pharisees - wonder what He would say about your judgmental behavior. Are you playing God? Good luck with that hypocrite!

aj0201

It doesn’t say that. I never said it did.

B4

Okay...so not in Bible - so who are you to conjure up what the Jewish people do and do not believe...and then say they've turned their backs on God?

aj0201

Do Jews, overall, accept Jesus as Messiah?

B4

You are the one who says they have turned their backs on God - what makes you say that ? It doesn't say that in the Bible but it also doesn't say what God's plan is for them. Obviously you must think you know the mind of God - so foolish (scripture tells us the wisdom of the world is foolishness to God) and yet so typical of someone like you who pontificates about his salvation. I'll let God do the judging, thank you.

aj0201

Gentiles were asking for Barabbas then? You are either Christian or you aren’t. There is no such thing as a Jewish Christian, spiritually.

B4

You just proved your ignorance of scripture. Better read just who was in the crowd that day. And you can state whatever foolishness you believe until the cows come home...but God is the only One who knows. Good grief, you are an embarrassment to us real Christians.

aj0201

The crowd before Pilate, yelling “crucify him!”, weren’t Jews??????? Oh my! Who do you think lived in Jerusalem?

zzsnot303

WOW ..it's 4:15am and NOBODY has commented here...musta been a great Saturday night

munchman

Truly Sad. Yes You Are Not to mention your train of thought is confusing.

munchman

OPPS! The line should read "John does a Darwinian job of turning them into gibbering monkeys."

munchman

Thou art stupid. As usual you forgot to bring your brain out of where the sun don't shine. John Fugelsang who is the Host of Tell Me Everything on Sirius XM and is quite often a guest on the Stephanie Miller show is a highly intelligent and humorous person that like myself is a born again atheist and can quote the bible chapter and verse. I love it when some pious CHINO calls into Stephanie's show and Does a Darwinian job of turning them into gibbering monkeys. He would be in total agreement with me when I say the biggest hypocrites are CHINOS preach one thin and practice the diametrical opposite. I truly enjoyed meeting John During the aftershow meet and greet for the Sexy Liberal Comedy Tour in Chicago Theater 6 years ago, Nothing I enjoy more thenistening to an artist comedian like John And Stephanie the humor of conservative stupidity.

munchman

By the way, facts, just like truth, don't spin! They can only be what they are , facts and truth.

munchman

Also would some of you rubes print some of these horrendous anti semitic statements. Please footnote them with who said what, where they said it, what they said, when they said it, and just what makes it anti semitic. Now I'll just sit back and enjoy your inability to do that because they don't exist. I know you are all victims of believing a man/child who has lied to you over 12,000 time so I know it will be a sisyphean task for you especially since you cognitive dissonance makes you have to believe the current occupant of the white house's lies.

zzsnot303

why should anyone list anti semitic statements for you when it will NOT improve your ability to read munchie

aj0201

I’ve asked several times for the anti Semitic comments to be shared or the “hate America” comments to be shared. Not one reply. I think it’s easy to point at these congresswomen and say that but much more difficult to provide evidence. Being critical of Israel has become being “anti Semitic.”

zzsnot303

words..out of the mouths of four fools...publicly spoken...ENOUGH SAID

Marty_Chuzzlewit

House of Representatives, H. RES. 72, January 23, 2019, RESOLUTION



Whereas Representative Rashida Tlaib, who supports the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) movement, has been asked by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL), a Jewish nongovernmental organization that fights hate crimes, to explain why she invited Abbas Hamideh to attend her swearing in events, who said in 2016, “Israel does not have a right to exist. The terrorist entity is illegal and has no basis to exist other than a delusional ISIS-like ideology”; Whereas Representative Tlaib, who stated on January 6, 2019, of Americans who support Israel, “They forgot what country they represent”; Whereas, on November 16, 2012, Representative Ilhan Omar, who also supports the BDS movement, tweeted, “Israel has hypnotized the world, may Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel”; Whereas, as a result of the BDS movement, Jewish students on college campuses across America have been exposed to rampant anti-Semitism, for example, at New York University, after the student government passed a resolution supporting BDS, the Bronfman Center for Jewish Life was temporarily closed in response to threatening Twitter posts by a student who expressed “a desire for Zionists to die”; Resolved, That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that the House of Representatives rejects anti-Israel and anti-Semitic hatred in the United States and around the world.

Those 4 women are guilty. Sorry I don't tape that stuff. I think it's disgusting that they are in Congress. They are not American...……...lets just cut through...…..

aj0201

Haha! BDS has become “anti Semitic” yet we had a president who wanted to ban Muslims.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

The Obamas set the agenda for the Furies and their ilk by making Jewish visitors to the white House enter by a side door so as to not antagonize the dozens of Islamic "aides" they hired to help make them feel more at home.

aj0201

Lol! Whatever.

Sociallyunacceptable

And being critical of the "squawd" has become being "anti Islamic". so what's your point?

munchman

If their were five people on Mount Rushmore then Fingered Fool would be there.

James Bond1

aj0201...……….That same President has a voter (me) that supports his very well thought out conclusion to recognize we are a Judeo-Christian nation and that is simply a direct opposite of Muslims and their presence as citizens is asking for nothing but trouble. Why now allow them to live in their land and be friends.

Sociallyunacceptable

He can read. it's his comprehension that needs work.

beelog

So, you believe Omar and Tlaib love Jewish people?

aj0201

Do you believe Trump love Muslims?

I sure hope he doesn't. Muslims fundamentals ALL oppose a Judeo-Christian nation. I would be happy to deny them admittance to this country. They don't "fit".

aj0201

No

munchman

He loves the as a shiny jingly foil to stir up his hate filled ignorant base like Jiminy has exposed himself below as being.

I think they hate an oppressive Government which is Anti Israeli and not Anti Semitic.

This is reality. Try to grab ahold the next time you confront it.

munchman

Good call. I noticed you and the current occupant of the white house rage on an on about the outrageous anti semitic comments from the two Muslim representatives but I don't recall any one saying what all these bad statements are. Saying something about a lobbyist group was all about the Benjamins is not inherently anti semitic like calling Jewish people the "K" word or calling them Globalist Bankers or Bilderbergs. Being judgemental of Israeli government policy like settlements on the west bank and the inhumane strangulation hold on the palestinians is just that judgments and they are not anti semitic but political in nature. You poor saps are too stupid to realize it is just a ruse by t rump to divert your attention away from the reality of the economy heading into recession. He thinks he will garner more Jewish votes come election time but 71% of American Jews do not like him or his policies regarding them. And why should the for he has shown his love for dictator despots who murder their own people just like Hitler did. He has blown not so subtle dog whistles to the racist and white supremacist who are a huge part of his base. Remember he said KKKers and American N azis had some really good people as members. And like the good little fascist he is he takes the side of hate and racism against people like ANTIFA who stand up for America against the organization that are fascist. Just like every swinging member who marched off to war in World War II.

beelog

ANTIFA is a hate group. Anyone admiring them is admiring hate and violence. Enough said.

aj0201

It’s funny how many people are only critical of antifa and completely ignore the white nationalists they oppose. I agree, antifa has become somewhat fascist in their approach, but notice that Trump doesn’t mention calling white nationalists “Proud Boys” domestic terrorists.

zzsnot303

YOU aj...with your "shrinkage" degree, could go to DC and speak for the President...

The difference is clear to those with rational thought.
