Let’s make a deal
I think President Donald Trump should do the prisoner exchange with Russia. After all, the guy we have in custody is just a low-level pilot smuggling drugs. That’s not even worth one Marine.
As long as the Corps of Engineers is working to protect the pallid sturgeon, the piping plover and the least tern from going extinct, while they’re working on that, why don’t they bring back the dinosaurs instead of saving all the people, their farmland and their livelihoods? These things, I’m sure to the Corps, are much more important than people losing their livelihoods, their homes and all their surrounding farmland and territory.
Best and nothing
On the subject of the situation on the border, I think Trump is doing the best he can while the Democrats do nothing to help. If these people don’t like living in these conditions, why don’t they go back where they came from? The Democrats won’t give him money to build a wall but appropriated money to care for these people. Think of that.
I’d like to say to all you people who hate St. Joseph so much, and think that this is a horrible place to live, please move. Then the rest of us who do like it here will have a better place to live.
Way, way back
Yes, Trump certainly does stand behind our men and women in uniform — a long ways behind. In fact, he’s not standing back there at all. He’s sitting down, with bone spurs.
To those of us who are paying attention, the controversy about our director of state health is not news. It’s followed him to Missouri from North Carolina. He’s been the topic of controversy and lawsuits from the beginning. It just says to me that our leaders in Jefferson City are not really concerned about the welfare of the people, because this man is not good for the people of Missouri.
I’d like to compliment the editorial person who wrote the opinion in Sunday’s paper, “Permission to speak, sir?” I applaud this editorial, reminding the City Council they should be available for spontaneous speaking at City Council meetings. A lot of people have been intimidated by having to fill out cards in advance.
I’m getting tired of seeing this commercial all the time about if you play the Missouri Lottery, it helps the school district. I’d like to know how much does the St. Joseph School District get out of the lottery, or does it all go to Kansas City and St. Louis and other places?
Cut it off
I have a few comments regarding the shooting of illegal fireworks. My advice to the people doing it, please stop at a decent time and not into the wee hours of the next morning when other people have to go to work.
Send a bill
All the houses that are being demolished, the people who own the houses should have to pay for it. It’s their property, they didn’t take care of it, and they should have it demolished. If you don’t mow your yard, the city mows it and sends you the bill. So if they don’t demolish it and the city demolishes it, the city should send them the bill.
