Placeholder It's Your Call

Golden opportunity

Introducing wind turbines to a community is a way to produce needed electricity, better education, lower taxes, better county roads and bring in more money for the people. This is an opportunity of a lifetime. Letting this opportunity be lost would be telling the next generation, “We’re not going to do anything to make your life better.”

Get in line

You see these people early in the cold morning, waiting in line to buy the Chiefs tickets. Who are these people that have the time and the money to do so?

Editor’s note: They are Chiefs fans.

Sign of times

I lived in St. Joe for years, moved up to Savannah seven years ago. They’ve got more stop signs on the corners up here than a dog has hair. And they don’t mean nothing to these people. I know there’s nobody sitting around watching them. I’ve mentioned that before to a couple policemen, and they just kind of laugh and shake their head. So I don’t think it’d be a very good idea for St. Joe.

Balancing act

It is so disgusting for people to keep telling the president what he should do when they probably can’t even keep their own checking account in order.

Question of abortion

Could the declining of births also be attributed to abortion? I would say so.

Editor’s note: According to state health statistics, Buchanan County women averaged a total of 107 abortions a year in a five-year period, from 2013 to 2017.

Agitate, agitate

A News-Press editorial tells us to stop politics at the water’s edge, meaning don’t criticize foreign policy. We have the right to criticize. Many of us criticized Bush’s war over nonexistent weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Republicans called us unpatriotic and Michael Reagan said we had a yellow streak. But we were right. It was the worst foreign policy mistake in a hundred years.

See Wawyer

When is Buchanan County going to realize the Seth Wright and Lee Sawyer are connected at the hip?

Taking sides

How on earth can the Democratic Party be upset that a terrorist was killed? He has mangled and killed hundreds of Americans. Whose side are they on anyway? Makes you wonder, listening to them.

Digging deep

The question I have is when will my fellow Americans realize President Donald Trump and his administration don’t have a clue what they’re doing? They’re going to put us in a hole we will never get out of. Take my word for it.

One thing I will give Trump credit for. I’m tired of having to run my dishes through the dishwasher 10 times until they’re clean. Let’s re-elect him! #TRUMP2020. #MDGA! (Make Dishwashers Great Again!)

If he could get microwaves to completely pop an entire bag of popcorn instead of leaving 1/2 cup of unpopped kernels, id say make him “King for Life!”

In what respect? Please elaborate how turning around the current growth in the economy and the tax dollars it is producing will be beneficial? Will fleecing the wealthy and distributing it to non-producers somehow magically make a change? Clue: a robust economy produces huge amounts of tax revenues which fund many programs. Liberals should be excited that there are more tax dollars for Congress to waste. Why would you want to turn that around? It seems liberals are more excited over a poor economy and increased welfare recipients. Another Clue: The world has never been, will never be, "fair".

Impeachment---The Democrats have just made a mockery of the Constitution and its prescription for impeachment. There are "no crimes and misdemeanors". The "abuse of power" refers to actions by previous presidents which were normal operating procedure, but are being overruled by political bias and the desire to remove a sitting President. The impeachment is a joke which will harm the presidency for decades to come. The Democrats have just "lowered the bar" for impeachment and set a horrible precedent. Joe Biden is on tape for an admitted quid pro quo in the Ukraine. IF elected president, there is a distinct possibility he will immediately be impeached for that action----thanks to an angry and vindictive Nancy Pelosi and a Democrat-controlled House of Representatives. Shameful!!

Your Democracy is dying, the Constitution Just took it the rear, and the Democrats are horrid evil disgusting people. Kind of reminds me of the refrain "The sky is falling, the sky is falling". or from the Wizard of Oz "Lions,and Tigers, and Bears, OH NO" Try and get a grip on reality. We all know about your biological imperative to be frightened little children because of how your brain are wired. You should join the party of stout hearted men, the Democrats.

Um, I guess you missed 2010 through 2014 when Obama caused DemocRats to lose over 1,000 seats nationwide. In 2010 alone, Obama caused the biggest midterm House losses since WWII: Obama (-63), Truman (-55), Clinton (-54). Trump only lost 40 and the GOP gained in the Senate. By the way, there's a reason the House is called "the lower chamber". The Senate wields the real power and it's now the official day care center for petulant DemocRats. LOL! Of course I realize you're a delusional Leftist, so your grasp on reality is nonexistent. Furthermore, the GOP has been making big gains in 2019 and this is a sure sign of things to come in 2020. Lastly, your pathetic party controls only 13 states out of 50 and they're likely to lose a few of those in 2020. But don't worry, we Conservatives will supply the Kleenex.

Taking sides---(cleansing the world of Soleimani)--the supposed "outrage" is simply political. The Left refuses to give Trump another success to follow all of his other successes. Watch most of the national media and you will see no mention of a booming stock market, gains in 401k plans, low unemployment, especially among minority groups, a strong economy, beneficial trade agreements which provides jobs and prosperity for all of us. The Democrats crave power in order to push their socialist agendas, therefore they refuse to acknowledge the benefits and prosperity Trump has brought to our nation.

If it was such a success then why it the question about why the strike took place in the first place a multiple choice question, since they give us an different choice of explanation on a daily basis or are you too stupid to realize that, The left are not upset a person who should have been dispatched that was.

Agitate, agitate--(foreign policy)--My question, caller, is when do you think it is appropriate to intervene in a foreign nation? Never? What if that nation is killing their own people for political expediency? What if they are systematically practicing genocide? What if their actions harm American interests? You see, it is not a simple question to answer. Consider too, that common people lack both training and access to all the facts and ramifications as the top levels of our government do. As leader of the free world, do we not have the obligation to confront evil?

sane1

Why are U.S. interest in a foreign country justification to attack it. In typical "Ugly American" (ever read that girl san?) fashion you seem to be unable to realize that WE are the foreigners in a foreign country. "We used to be number one! We used to be number one". Sadly we are number one in only few categories 1. Number one country in the world that allows most citizens to die from gun violence, 2. Number one country in the word with the most medical bill bankruptcies. 3. Number one in war making spending by far. Funny how that has never yielded a peace dividend. 4.Number one in right wing hate and racist organization. I am sure there are some more that are equally abhorrent but I can't think of the in this moment,

beelog

Again, English 101. Point 1---it is law-breaking citizens, mostly in the inner cities who commit gun violence. 2. I agree there is a need for adjustment. 3. Most of the military budget goes to training, equipment, and the power to "avoid war" by being prepared for any enemy. 4. the hate started from the Left when Trump defeated Princess Hillary. Republicans did not riot in the street, did not damage property, did not try to prevent people from exercising their right to free speech. Sir, the only "hate" comes from the Left. Conservatives merely defend themselves and the President from idiocy.

An irony of modern life is that we have technology which is causing us to regress as human beings. Violent gangs, street criminals, and drug dealers/users are taking over our cities. Abortion and laws which favor the criminals have unraveled our moral fiber, and we have a political naïve people only interested in further lowering our legal and moral standards. Wake Up, America!

When you speak of social media are you referring to infowars and other fruit loop fring right wing blogs? And when you speak of biased media are you referring to a 24 hour news network that went to court to win the right to lie in its broadcasting Or news media that presents objective, multi verified sources, media like the mainstream media are. The very name Mainstream denotes center of the road and not fringe in nature. Remember Benghaziiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii on Fox and the multiple lies that story produced.

Chicken beelittle cries about violent gangs in our cities, completely ignoring the fact that the US has a significantly lower violent crime now than 30 years ago. Illegal drug use is in the rise in some areas, but down in others. I’m not sure how abortion laws favor criminals. Maybe he suffered a TIA while typing that. But abortion rates are essentially the same now than they were when Roe v Wade was decided. What is not better in this country is the wage gap and the disappearance of the middle class. Over the years, inflation adjusted wages have skyrocketed for CEOs and upper management while flattened for the average American. Proof that “trickle down” doesn’t work unless you’re a plumber. Meanwhile, while he warns the world of the lowering of our moral standards, he supports the most morally vile candidate to ever run for and win the office of President and shrugs that off by saying “we didn’t elect him to be our pastor.” Apparently moral relativism is ok when it’s someone who blows the proper dog whistles.
