Placeholder It's Your Call

Can’t handle it

Under growing pressure from the Democrats, Facebook has decided to try to stop the anti-Democrat hackers. Well, if I remember right, the hackers exposed the truth. Maybe that’s what the Democrats are trying to stop.

Can’t wait

I’ll be so glad when the next election for City Council comes around. I can’t wait to vote against these fools up there. There’s only one or two conservatives on the whole City Council. The rest of them try to make it as hard as possible for the common person to comment at their stupid little meetings. So I am in a hurry to get to vote against them. I don’t know what is going on up there, just like Washington, D.C.

Free lunch

I definitely want to thank the city for building that food kitchen down there. We got a kitchen down there that we built to give free food away and then we’re gouging everybody else in St. Joe to pay the sewer bills.

Private use

A question on unmarked vehicles taken home by city and county employees — are any of these allowed to be used for private purposes? If so, what is the charge on that?

Pay for school

Our tax system is all screwed up. Me and my neighbor, our properties are the same amount. Me and my wife are over 75 years old, never raised any children, but yet we have to pay just as much tax as our neighbor who has five children. The school tax system should be based on how many children you have in school. That would be more fair.

Government pot

Trump’s capitalism has the economy booming, and people are going back to work. The Democrats, on the other hand, want to take us to some weird socialist nirvana, where there is a chicken in every pot. The problem is that everybody’s chicken is the size of a sparrow, and the pot would be owned by the government.

Blame game

I’d like to respond to all the people complaining that President Donald Trump blames everyone else. Blaming other people is a longtime political tradition. If you remember, former President Barack Obama blamed former President George W. Bush for everything for about seven and a half years. And speaking of blame, if we didn’t have such a generous welfare system and open borders, we wouldn’t have all these problems with children and families in not too good conditions, to say the least.

Good law

A fireworks law is not a worthless law. Although it is almost impossible to enforce on a day-to-day basis, if someone should be seriously hurt or property damage done because of someone illegally shooting off fireworks, then the city has a law to charge them with. Some laws are good even if they can’t be enforced.

I want to take a minute from my family time to wish all a happy 4th. That includes liberals as well. May God bless America. God bless you President Trump. Keep working to make America great. Trump 2020. Back to family. America the great. Time for family prayer.

munchman

I know that fascist white nationalist think that the 4th was all about honoring the military of the fatherland but if you are truly a patriot you know it is a celebration of the putting to paper the ideas that made America America. No wonder Connie's vote for a draft dodging, lying, narcissistic, failure of a human being. They have no idea of the true meaning of what America is, Especially when the attack the mainstay defense of democracy when the call the free press an enemy of the people in order to excuse there cognitive dissonant defense of t rump.

munchman

As I just watched phony president t rump give his sing song canned speech at the hi-jacked capital fourth of July celebration I was struck with the fact that he like all Connie's have no idea what the true meaning of that celebration is. It is not about the military or how we earned our independence from King George. It is a celebration of the document that established the basis for our rebellion and what we established as our fledgling Democracy. I know the military is always popular nowadays so it is no wonder the that a scumbag with falling approval would try to appropriate that popularity for himself. And just as the military is not what the fourth of July is really about so kneeling during is free speech about injustice and has nothing to do with the military.

munchman

I see Breitbart is trying to blame an 18 low in patriotism on the Democrats this 4th. What the racist white nationalist from that yellow journalism has confused with patriotism is the low level of support for Nationalism of the left. We have patioticaly stood against Nationalism since the existence of Hitler. We stand against a draft dodging narcissist making the 4th of July all about him and not our country, by taking 2.5 million away from the already underfunded National Park Service to pay for a campaign rally where his big ticket donors get the tickets. Where is the outrage from the phony fiscal conservatives for this? Where is the out cry from them to make his campaign pay for all of this? At least you are consistently phony with your politics and religion. America! Long may she exist. Sadly with the erosion of Democracy by this fascist regime I don't think it will happen if it continues for another four years. P.S. many late replies to early comments

Pay for School. If you want to live in a community, you pay taxes to help support it. Not paying a school tax because you don’t have kids in school is like saying don’t spend your tax dollars on fixing the streets you don’t ever drive on.

Trump--if Trump was in favor of fascism, as some claim, there would be no Democratic debates. There would be no preparations for the 2020 elections. I guess when there is no substance to one's position, you start making accusations.

WakeUpUS

BINGO. You just described the Leftist-Democrat-Socialist creed/process. [huh]

aj0201

“When Mussolini stepped into power, fascism had none of the superior-race, blood-and-soil trappings that came to Germany with Hitlerism. All the other elements of fascism were there, however: belief in violence, disbelief in legal processes, rabid nationalism, and so on. But the regime was not totalitarian in its first three years. Opposition parties were still legal, a strong opposition press operated under difficulties, and Mussolini kept talking about a return to normalcy. It was only in 1925 that fascism fully threw off the mash. The murder of a socialist leader by the name of Matteotti, a fearless parliamentary opponent of fascism, was the signal. Through every device of open violence and concealed trickery the totalitarian machine was built up.”

Unions donate heavily to Democrats. The Democrats use some of that money to harass the wealthy. The wealthy create the jobs union members depend on. Under Obama, the "wealthy" were taking (union) jobs overseas. Trump (a Republican) brought those jobs back. Think that through and decide who "really" helps the unions.

WakeUpUS

America didn't become great by consuming/China-produced apples & shopping for cheap items at The Dollar Store. We have our own vast market of consumers, & the ability to produce most of what we need. It was our corrupt past 'leaders' who sold the United States out with bad Trade 'Deals'... Now Aj will attempt to blame it on Ronald Reagan, right on cue.... [pirate]

REM541

Complete bull. Unions created the middle class and this great nation. And you show your ignorance with statements like this. Wealthy individuals have always hid their money, it didn't start under Obama. See what happens when you listen to idiot Trump and stupid fox news. Trump thinks homelessness started two years ago. You folks are really not very bright. Go to school and learn to read.

beelog

Companies do not "absorb" the higher wages to workers. They pass it on to consumers in the form of higher prices. The higher prices hurt the poor the most who must buy these products. The employer is only concerned about the having a product at a higher cost than their competition--which can translate to (a) hiring fewer workers, or (b) moving the company overseas where wages are lower. I realize I'm not too bright, as you suggest, but I do understand basic economics.

Sociallyunacceptable

So what do you think they do with the huge bonuses given to middle management?

aj0201

Well Trump believes homelessness started two years ago. Just imagine what those who prostrate before him believe.

Sociallyunacceptable

Care to share the quote? Liar.

He said the phenomenon of homelessness that has manifested itself in places like Seattle and Portland as well as SF and LA started two years ago. And it has absolutely skyrocketed in the last 2 years.

FREEBIES---When Democrats promise "free stuff" to people, they do not intend to pay for it themselves---they are looking to gouge taxpayers, especially those who have been successful in life. Don't buy their "humanitarian" claims--they are only after votes. Giving people "free stuff" (paid for by taxpayers) is nothing short of "buying votes". Should we, and unions, be funding the buying of votes? Think about it.

Sociallyunacceptable

They don't care beelog. They seem to think this lifeboat is ever expanding when in fact, you put enough people into a lifeboat or any boat and it sinks under its own weight. Same thing applies to countries. They want to turn the United States into a third world country.

beelog

Illegal Immigration---The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) reports that 1 in 5 people in our federal prison system are illegal immigrants. Dept of Homeland Security reports that illegals are costing taxpayers 116 Billion dollars per year. Looking at Texas---June of '11 to April of '18, there were 250,000 illegals in the Texas prison system for a variety of charges such as the illegal drug trade, assaults, weapons charges, 1351 homicides, and a long list of other crimes--that is ONE state! Meanwhile people with skills from Bangladesh, India, and Europe must wait 10 years or more to gain citizenship and contribute to the nation. Any logical government official should be appalled, but the Democrats are blinded by the possibility of more votes by promising more handouts---courtesy of the taxpayers--you and me.

There IS no such thing s NATIVE American. Even Indians came here from somewhere else. They were still living in the stone age when the rest of us decided to see what was over here.

Pay for school---there was a time when I would have said that we all have a responsibility for educating our children. Today, looking at the results compared to both private and foreign schools, I think it is less of a good investment--particularly at the college level where professors without real-world experience, come up with inept concepts which destroy the fabric of our nation.

Trump does what he feels is right for the nation---he doesn't fret and wring his hands over public opinion polls. He just goes ahead and gets things done.
