Placeholder It's Your Call

Which is worse?

As this president continues to preside over our country, we can clearly see that he shall be the only one to rule the land. I, myself, do not wish for a socialist society, but we do not need a clone of our enemies running our country. President Donald Trump is becoming and believes more and more in running America as a dictatorship. Lord, help us.

Downtown dreams

Why in the world would we consider expanding the Fire Department by purchasing and building Downtown? That is about as far away from any of the fires or any of the problems that the Fire Department has to take care of. Why don’t they start thinking a little instead of just spending the money because it’s Downtown and we love to spend money Downtown.

Editor’s note: The Fire Department said its rescue truck at that location runs 2,000 calls a year.

Sound and fury

The obituaries should read, “A great nation has died. A dictator has jumped in and taken its place.” And if you don’t believe it, just think about this. You’ve got him interfering in the judicial process of Roger Stone — he thinks that punishment shouldn’t even happen with that guy; he’s fired a lieutenant colonel in the White House, along with his twin brother, and had them removed and now he’s saying that the military should take actions against the colonel; and he’s fired his ambassadors because they talked out against him. Sure sounds like a little dictator to me.

College try

I’m tired of all this stuff about Trump. People, just get off your duff, get out there and vote. You don’t want him? Vote against him. Oh, wait a minute. Your popular vote doesn’t count. It’s all about the Electoral College.

Two extremes

So, we as Democrats are gonna try to nominate a 30-something small town mayor, or an 80-year-old communist socialist to take on Trump. Good luck with that.

Chew on that

I don’t give a blank what entertainers say, but I do know the Lord gave us animals and plants for our use for survival. Now just go chew on that.

Another holiday

It’s unfortunate that the Buchanan County clerk’s offices closed on the final day of voter registration. I’m wondering, I know Lincoln’s Birthday is not a national holiday. Is it a Missouri holiday or just a Republican holiday?

Editor’s note: Lincoln Day is listed as one of 12 state holidays. Democrats at the courthouse and in state government get that day off, just as Republicans get a day off for Truman’s birthday in May.

We’re one baggy, khaki green suit away....

“Justice Department attorneys struggled with mounting frustration and skepticism from a federal judge about producing documents related to the investigation of former FBI deputy director Andrew McCabe, according to transcripts of closed-door conversations released in response to a lawsuit from a government watchdog group.

The McCabe case—and President Donald Trump’s personal involvement in it—prompted federal judge Reggie Barnett Walton to call the government’s handling of it “disturbing,” a “mess,” and veering close to a “banana republic.”

O’Reilly to Trump in November: You didn’t direct Rudy to go to Ukraine on your behalf?

Trump: “No, I didn’t direct him.”

Geraldo to Trump today: Are you sorry you sent Rudy to Ukraine?

Trump: “No, not at all.”

GEEZ, aj.. it's really really SAD that your ONLY life is concerning Washington, DC news... and ONLY anti-Trump garbage. Do you not have an ordinary life or just such a boring life that copy/paste consumes every minute of your day, EVERY day ? Truly a very sad situation.

Kharnage86

What's really sad is how people like you Houdini who desperately attempt to defend and ignore Trumps constant lies........Its pathetic!

John Birch Society

What's really sad is how people like you Con-rageIQ86 who desperately attempt to defend and cling to The leftist's constant lies........Its pathetic!

houdiniharry

YOU be pathetic Khamage, never wil i be.., just get back in line and wait your desperate turn lol

houdiniharry

ignorance of reality seems to stick tightly to some..

aj0201

Hahaha! You think this consumes me? I post here my never Trump thoughts but I rarely speak of him in any other circumstance. I’ve met with 4 clients today and have 3 more to go. A very nice day of helping people and a good day of making a living. You assume that this forum consumes my day. Nothing could be farther from the truth.

John Birch Society

It consumes you. It's OBVIOUS. [whistling]

houdiniharry

i sincerely doubt your supposed clients...

houdiniharry

3 more.. you have three more shoppers at Hy-Vee who might even say "hello" to you.. that IS fabulous

houdiniharry

no.. you copy/paste every single anti-Trump news article you can find, every moment of the day... less from you is never expected

BALTIMORE (AP) — Federal prosecutors want the disgraced former mayor of Baltimore (Catherine Pugh[D] to be sentenced to nearly five years in prison for the scheme involving sales of her self-published “Healthy Holly” children's books.

aj0201

Trump is apparently ordering a cut in federal employees pay raise. Trump is justifying ordering the cut on the grounds that the country is in the midst of a “national emergency or serious economic conditions affecting the general welfare,” which the White House says authorizes the president to “implement alternative plans for pay adjustments.”

John Birch Society

Many of the bloated government agencies expanded by past Democrat administrations should have hundreds of jobs cut entirely. [huh]

aj0201

Not surprising you missed the point. Too manic right now go pay attention to details.

John Birch Society

They should revoke your Counseling license for incompetence. Rule one is you cannot diagnose a person who you never met... [wink][whistling][tongue_smile]

aj0201

That’s “rule one?” Nope. But I haven’t diagnosed you, just made educated guesses.

houdiniharry

not much of a counselor i'd say...umm semi retired, or retired,, or non-existant..dunno

John Birch Society

Most people I know with counseling 'credentials' are some of the most messed-up people I've ever met, & and I've known several over the years... [whistling][tongue_smile][tongue_smile][tongue_smile][cool]

aj0201

I bet you have. Lots of people who are bipolar see multiple therapists over their lifetime. That’d be my guess

John Birch Society

Never needed one. Most of the ones I knew couldn't run their own lives competently.

aj0201

Most bipolar believe they don’t need therapy.

John Birch Society

You probably DON'T believe you need professional help, but it's obvious. [beam][cool]

aj0201

Just a reminder of the way this goes in the MAGAverse -- Trump was awesome for hiring him (John Kelly) and awesome for firing him. He hires the best people and fires terrible people, and "best" and "terrible" are the same people, depending on the needs of the moment.

houdiniharry

when you become President, you can do things YOUR way..until then nobody pays attention to your crying

John Birch Society

Just a reminder of the way this goes in the Vajaverse -- Trump is awesome, we hired him (chief executive) and awesome for firing comey. He hires the best people and fires terrible people, and "dems" and "terrible" are the same people, depending on the crimes of the moment.

Kharnage86

Your paying attention quite a bit Houdini lol

houdiniharry

occasionally, but i have a good life out of here..this is simply just an entertainment vehicle to see the stupid segment of society ..those called anti-Trumpers and deplorables..

aj0201

Two extremes... it’s difficult to take on a party who has decided a three time divorce, serial adulterer, persistent liar, has been sent by God to defend their religion. I never heard a Republican day that “God graces the US with Barak Hussein Obama” as President. They may reluctantly say “God is in control” but they don’t say he “graced” us. They’ve hired an amoral man to defend religion. They don’t believe their own Bibles.

John Birch Society

I believe MY Bible, I just don't believe YOUR twisted interpretations of your Bible... [whistling][tongue_smile][tongue_smile][innocent]

justanotherworkingman

Vaj can't help himself. He has the comic book version.

houdiniharry

OR ten different versions depending on what happens in DC

houdiniharry

confusing statement albeit from the worst Trump hater aj .. and the FREE world rolls on .. #TRUMP2020

jdw64485

It's true I don't believe in all printed Bibles. I believe God is in control and every President from Washington to Trump God put them in office. Only God knows his reason for doing it. As far as gracing. I'm not sure this is the correct terminology.

aj0201

You didn’t seem to have a problem with that terminology yesterday from “Alice.” And to answer your question from yesterday, I agree with you. Romans 13 is clear about how God places people in authority. Trump, Obama, Hitler. None of that happened outside of God’s will. As such, don’t you think it’s a bit heavy handed when evangelicals say that Trump is “heaven sent” as some sort of protector of their religion?

John Birch Society

God = +99999999999999[thumbup][thumbup]

Vaj0201 = negative 66666666 [tongue_smile][thumbdown]

jdw64485

To be honest I never seen the word graced yesterday. But yes i do believe it was the wrong terminology yesterday as it is today. As far as the words "heaven sent". Yes it could be. To me its just a expression. Just like the word grace is.

aj0201

I’m sure you don’t mean God’s grace is “an expression?” God’s grace is His expression of love for us.

aj0201

Sound and fury.. especially now that “President” Trump admits that he directed his personal lawyer to work with Ukraine to investigate Biden. Senate Republicans are complicit in turning the presidency into the most authoritarian “President” we’ve ever had. “President” Trump is far closer to a dictator than Bernie would be in transforming this nation into a socialist one.

The Gainer

Your brain has turned to mush!

aj0201

See if you can muster up an intelligent thought coherent enough to tell me how I’m wrong.

John Birch Society

It's when your lips are moving, or when you are typing blog responses... [whistling][tongue_smile]

aj0201

Bad answer John BS. That may answer “when” I’m wrong, the question was “how” am I wrong. Try addressing that. Show me how I’m wrong. Betcha can’t.

John Birch Society

You admitted you voted for hiLIARy Clinton... [beam][wink][whistling][tongue_smile]

aj0201

Now you’re changing the subject. This has nothing to do with Hillary. Try to stay on task. I know it’s hard when you’re manic.

John Birch Society

No, I answered your question, dummy. [cool]

Kharnage86

aj trying to get a Trumper to do anything intelligent or logical will never happen, they enjoy living the life in ignorance with small minded views.

The Gainer

Your a strong believer of telling a lie long enough and strong enough it becomes the truth. Still a lie, that you have invested in.

aj0201

No. It was about Trump as a dictator.

John Birch Society

It's about vaj's twisted fantasy-world. [tongue_smile][alien]

John Birch Society

It's a President's RESPONSIBILITY to have these crooked actions investigated. He's the Chief Executive. GOOD WORK, President Trump. Thanks former Vice-president Biden for OPENLY ADMITTING (bragging) what you DID on live video..! [beam][cool][tongue_smile][thumbup]

aj0201

I have no problem with a President investigating corruption. Two problems (at least) with what Trump has done. 1. There was zero interest in Biden by him in 2017-18 and part of 2019. 2. He’s using a private citizen to collide with a foreign government to investigate a private citizen for potential crimes. What constitutional guarantees does Rudy provide to Biden? If Trump wants to investigate a citizen, he should direct the DOJ to do so. Not some has been mayor.

John Birch Society

Yes, you DO problem with a President investigating corruption.

You have problem with President Trump tying his shoelaces... [huh]

aj0201

John, let’s try to properly format some sentences next time. You’re getting increasingly incoherent as your frustration as a “President” Trump supporter starts to wear on you physically and emotionally.

aj0201

Who? The Gainer? JamesDumb1? That’s one heck of a cheering section you have. Wouldn’t have been easier and shown more integrity to admit you typed some horrible sentences there? Instead you continue with the grade school mentality of “but everyone likes me!” You spent a lot of time alone on the playground when you were a kid, didn’t you?

John Birch Society

Those guys are coherent too. You guys are brainwashed shills for the Leftist demons. [tongue_smile][ninja]

So is it Latuda? Abilify? Lamictal? Which led are you refusing?

Which is worse.. electing a democrat, any democrat, doesn’t make us a “socialist country” and those who believe it does are fine examples of the poorly educated.

Which is worse.. electing a democrat, any democrat, or electing a “socialist kook”..?

Same Difference. Those who believe them are fine examples of the cowardly indoctrincated.

You won't get the chance to elect your kind of democrat then. Joe Biden was beaten in Iowa by a gay guy, a fake indian and a communist jew. in other words he was beaten by the Village People...……….

electing a Democrat is a sure sign of a poorly educated voter
