Placeholder It's Your Call

Where have they gone?

It appears that Mitch McConnell and Lindsey Graham have simply lost their minds for being Trump’s lap dogs. Their behavior is quite disturbing for being a U.S. senator representing the people.

A shame

I wish somebody could answer as to when Josh Hawley and Sam Graves and Roy Blunt are going to do anything to look into this flooding situation that happens every spring. There’s farmers out there that have generational farms, and if they know that’s going to flood again next year. It’s a darn shame.

Merger result

I recently talked to a school administrator from the school district where our new superintendent came from. They combined two junior high schools into one big school. They are not happy. With this merger, they lost teachers.

Going up

The other day when the price of oil went up $1 because of the big scare over there, the convenience stores just couldn’t wait to jack up the price of gas, you know, 10 or 12 cents a gallon. Well today, oil dropped over $3 a gallon. Let’s see how long it takes them to drop the price of gas 3 cents.

Treated like a queen

Prince Harry’s wife wasn’t getting the kind of attention she wanted so they are moving. In doing so, they will get more news coverage where they will be treated like kings and queens, which is exactly what she is seeking.

Say something

Why does Trump not say anything about the Russian ship coming so close and endangering our ships in the ocean? It’s happened four times now and he’s said nothing.

Full stop

I’m calling about the stop signs they want to change. They better leave them alone, because people won’t even stop, they’ll run right through. If you don’t believe me, come to the South End and watch. I about got ran over this morning. They’re there for a reason.

Why invest?

So much for “grand opening.” I wonder if anybody told the St. Jo Frontier Casino what the Corps of Engineers is saying is going to happen this spring? Surely they did. Surely they know. But they went ahead and spent all this money on the revamping and redoing that casino. And the Corps is saying it’s going to be worse this coming spring than it was the past. I can’t figure out why somebody would invest this kind of money knowing that this is going to happen again.

The U.S. budget deficit hit $356.6 billion in Q1 2020, up 11.8% compared to the same period the previous year.

Budgets are...well...budgets. Ever formulate one?

Treated like a queen, You forgot to mention that Ms. Markle's main problem is that she is half black.

justanotherworkingman

Actually her main problem is that she needs to be the center of attention.

Liberals are deeply offended that the clouds in the sky are mostly white lacking diversity. [beam][crying]

justanotherworkingman

I think it's really funny how you like to point out any example of alleged racial bias even though your own party has bias issues. Cory "clueless" Booker just dropped out leaving 3 old white people and a gay guy leading the pack.

B4

Not a surprise! The FBI admits illegal wiretapping of President Trump. He was right when he said I'm being wiretapped. Their "apology" falls short.

B4

Under the Obama administration, the FBI was corrupt (and still is) and the IRS intentionally targeted conservative and Christian organizations. Both have been caught red-handed - that's a FACT!

beelog

AJ---Which of these offends you most about Trump? Record low unemployment for African-Americans? record low for Hispanics? an over abundance of jobs? A booming stock market? Money flowing into 401k retirement funds? a more secure southern border? putting pressure on violent gangs such as MS13? The Mexico-USA-Canadian trade agreement? Putting pressure on Iran sparking an uprising of the people? a better trained, better equipped military? bringing back to the U.S. jobs which Obama said were "gone forever"?, having the courage to take out terrorist leaders when the opportunity arises? Do all of those things offend you?

jdw64485

Everything Trump does offends aj

aj0201

No. Your misrepresentation of those things is offensive.

James Bond1

beelog's observations are indeed quite accurate. Just what are you...….stupid. Or, maybe just a plain liar. beelog is simply accurate.

aj0201

No he’s not. On nearly every issue he brought up, he’s misrepresenting Presidebt Lump influence. He’s done nothing to change unemployment rates. And you’re not smart enough to understand that. I know, you’ll point to the current unemployment rate, but you cannot point to a policy of Trumps that got us to this point, especially give the fact that unemployment was well on its way to that point under Obama. Fact.

By no measure are we safer today than we were three years ago. None.

Presidebt Lump DID collude with Russia. It’s exquisitely detailed in the Mueller report. He DID withhold money from Ukraine for political purposes.

Lump ordered the assassination of a person without detailing imminent threat. That is against the law.

Presidebt Lump is adding to our debt at near record pace, without having a recession on hand like Obama did. Our farm bailout is costing us $$ and is his own doing. The tax breaks for corporations are costing us $$, not reducing our debt or deficit.

Presidebt Lump has not fixed healthcare like he promised. He has not got Mexico to pay for a wall like he promised. He has not fixed infrastructure like he promised. He has not eliminated the debt like he promised.

EVERYTHING listed offends AJ.. he lives in his own tiny shelter

justanotherworkingman

Vaj never met a donut that offended him.

justanotherworkingman - That is hilarious! Love it!

aj0201

“Trump ordered the killing of Soleimani *last spring* if an American got killed, NBC reports.”

So not “imminent.”

houdiniharry

no relevance to current situation

aj0201

Only to the uninformed, wet noodle Lump supporters who don’t care that he is acting indiscriminately.

beelog

aj---there are some really bad characters in the world who need to be neutralized. It is difficult to locate these bad guys in a location where innocent people are not at risk. They are "targets of opportunity" which require immediate action before the opportunity is lost. The CIA, military, and Trump acted appropriately when the opportunity presented itself. That is how the CIA operates. Why do you want to make this political? I know, it pains you to see another Trump success.

aj0201

The US doesn’t assassinate people unless there is an imminent threat. Period.

houdiniharry

Trump will be the greatest President ever, with no help from anti-AJ (nearly the only uninformed person on this forum)

justanotherworkingman

Oh I'd say President Trump was right on target when he toasted Soleimani

beelog

the "opportunity" was imminent. And---if NBC reported that last spring, then Congress was informed, were they not?

aj0201

NBC is reporting that now. The criteria isn’t an imminent opportunity but an imminent threat. Like it or not, we are a nation of laws.

houdiniharry

AJ.. did you tell Obama that when he took out Bin Laden ??????????

aj0201

Completely different, dingbat. Congress had given full authority to go after those responsible for 9/11. This is the poor education nonsense that Presidebt Lump relies on. Good grief.

Articles of impeachment---both articles are a joke. "Abuse of Power" meant he was doing the same things as his predecessors. "Obstruction of Congress"---he invoked executive privilege as is his right under the Constitution. This impeachment is purely political in nature, and essentially an abuse of power by the House.

aj0201

You don’t seem to understand the nature of “checks and balances.” Low educated Trumpers rarely have much understanding of anything.

houdiniharry

i take offense at the low educated anti-Trumper. (one track thinking process)

The Gainer

That is because the Left likes putting everyone in little groups always have and always will.

houdiniharry

if it weren't for politics, you'd have ZERO to add to this forum

aj0201

I only post here because it centers around Trump. When he’s gone, I’m gone.

B4

You really have nothing better to do with your time..???.. and nothing Of...VALUE...to add to the conversation...???

beelog

AJ-on what basis do you use the term "low educated". Isn't that a derogatory term? What about the dignity of the individual? Do you feel that someone with a lower education is unworthy of your respect? Are you suggesting that people who do not agree with you are therefore worthless? Where is the tolerance? Where is the compassion?

aj0201

Maybe I miss used the term? Is it “poorly educated?” I believe that’s the term favored by Presidebt Lump. Anyway, the President of the US doesn’t enjoy unlimited executive privilege. You say it must be based in fact. It is. The fact is he asked for an investigation into a political rival and held up military aid to get that investigation going. That is fact.

aj0201

Whoops. Misused should be the word....*

James Bond1

aj0201...………….it's Trumps intelligence that bothers you. Or is it his unlimited energy and ability to respond

aj0201

It is indeed Lumps intelligence that bothers me. He has none.

justanotherworkingman

Those without dignity treat others without dignity.

aj0201

Lump is the model of treating people with dignity, isn’t he?

beelog

Checks and balances is an important part of our government, but there must be a basis in fact before application.

sane1

There is!! It''s called the Constitution Doofus.

jdw64485

All the impeachment is. It's a smear campaign to smear the President name before the 2020 election. Low educated liberals believe whatever just to collect a free ride on taxpayer dollars.

beelog

JDW---You are correct. Democrats offer the poor handouts, Trump provides them with jobs. Democrats keep the poor dependent with low self-esteem, Trump gives them the ability to improve their financial situation and feel good about themselves. The Democrats, despite their "feigned caring", have only increased the number of people who are dependent. Trump has many off the "dole" and productive citizens. Who "really cares"?

houdiniharry

and hopefully another 700,000 or so..in April..OFF the dole

aj0201

And Trump supporters are good with the President abusing his office and getting help from foreign governments at the expense of American citizens. You’re good with the lies. Youre good with the name calling. You’re good with the inability to negotiate on behalf of this country. As long as poor people don’t get a dime, you fake Christians don’t care if the President sells us out to russia.

B4

Says the blasphemer. Fake is all you've got!

Show me the proof That Russia affected our election? Name one person that changed their vote because of Russian Colusion? Just one!

Whoooooooo………………..and that trash is silly. Doesn't make you look too good.

there needs to be a better defining criteria for being classed poor. far too many are taking advantage of a system, mostly enhanced by Obama giveaways.
