Placeholder It's Your Call

Watch out

In the paper, certain people are touting the fact that E-85 is going to be produced. E-85, if you put it in your modern vehicles, it will completely eliminate the manufacturer’s warranty. It will eat at the inside of your engines, E-85 is no good. It’s great for the farmers. Yeah. Something to sell. But watch out, American public.

Just a joke

I live in a small town a few miles south of St. Joseph. There is a sign posted on my street that reads “Slow, Children at Play.” There are tiny children in the street riding bicycles and scooters while 10- and 12-year-old boys go whizzing by them on ATVs and dirt bikes, racing each other at full throttle. Meanwhile, their parents don’t seem to care. The street sign is a joke. It is only a matter of time before something bad happens.

Rock it south

Why not start having concerts down at Lake Contrary in the park? That way the children could play and parents could watch everything. We have beautiful gazebos down there and anyone could have picnics and use the cookout facilities. It would be a nice idea to do something in the South End.

Proud of her

Whether you like our first lady or not, she knows how to act and present herself when representing our country. I see her as someone to be proud of.

Thank a farmer

Thank the farmers for gambling on planting a crop. It takes a large investment in land, machinery, seeds and fertilizer. Then depend on weather, drought, flooding, wind, hail and so forth. When able to harvest a crop, people far removed from farms make the decision on the price per bushel of crop. Farmers hope to receive planting and living expenses from the sale of their grain. When people buy the processed products, we pay much higher price than the amount received by farmers. I hope this small number of total population who are farmers continue to provide food for the world.

Always something

What is it about the Republican Party? I’ve never been a Republican, but I voted for some Republicans for the presidency. With Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush you had Iran-contra. With Richard Nixon you had Watergate. And now with Donald Trump, you have the liar-in-chief.

Not so sorry

You know, it’s really hard for me to feel sorry for the casino being flooded. If they were, what we voted on, they would be tied to a dock and floating in the river right now.

Congratulations on the interesting column written by Ken Newton on UFO encounters. These UFOs have a 50/50 chance of being either alien beings or our own above top secret, advanced aircraft.

'Department of Justice Says Big Four Tech Giants Will Be Going Under Monopoly Investigations For De-Platforming All Their Political Opponents In Anti-Trust Suits' The impending DOJ probes into the anti-competitive practices of Big Tech giants like Google, Facebook, Amazon and Apple are poised to change the industry forever. Silicon Valley is already feeling the pain as stocks had billions in market value wiped out after news broke of the antitrust investigations. Today’s InfoWars broadcast breaks down what these developments mean for biased political censorship, de-platforming of patriots, the China connection, and so much more. aj0201, you got some 'splainin' to do..! [beam][wink][cool][whistling][lol]

aj0201

That’s easy to “splain.†The man child president got his feelings hurt so he ordered these investigations. Remember, the FTC and the DOJ are the of the executive branch.

WakeUpUS

Big tech did it to themselves when they decided to move from being private companies to getting in bed with China to suppress Free Speech, with an eye towards rolling it out in the United States against citizens with Political Beliefs in opposition to their own. [huh]

aj0201

They are private companies. They have no obligation to protect your speech.

WakeUpUS

No, over time, they have superseded their 'original' role described in your Leftist talking point. [whistling] Southwestern Bell was a private company that became a utility, & at some point had to be 'broken up'. Can you imagine what would have happened if they arbitrarily denied services to those with dissenting political opinions, while working for the Communist Chinese government..? Action IS coming, & it's not a 'temper-tantrum' as you suggest- It's in the public's interest to not have a monopoly, & to be able to voice their Free Speech. [cool]

WakeUpUS

hiLIARy-ous that YOU would stand on the side of the Leftists... AGAIN. [wink][cool][whistling]

A multi-company social media monopoly?? 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣. Facebook and twitter and YouTube are not “utilities.â€

Wait & see it unfold.

ALWAYS SOMETHING...………...Yeh, you got that right...…...Trump is always doing something. Accomplishing things past Presidents never ever thought of. Why, Trump even decided we shouldn't send tons and tons of money to every country in the world. Now that is pretty good. And our wonderful Allies...…..we had a 17% role in the deal...……...and only had to provide 100% of the money to fund it. Trump is the first American President who thinks "America first". And, here he is following Obumer whose purpose in life was to send money to Africa and take good care of every Muslim he could find...……..what was it, about 35 CZARS in the White House. And there was Obumer underwriting 57 States...………….!

WakeUpUS

Meanwhile, Leftist Democrats have their 'hate-blinders' on & cannot admit to themselves or others how the Trump presidency is attempting to bring America back from the socialist precipice that we have been moving towards since the first Clinton administration...

E85 not only harms your vehicle's fuel system (unless your vehicle is made for E85/flex-fuel) but it is also significantly less efficient. You'll have to fill up at LEAST twice as often...maybe even three times more often. In other words, using E85 will cost you more at the pump...even though the price, per gallon, is less.

WakeUpUS

It's not efficient to produce from corn either. We were shown a film about how it's easily made from sugar cane or sugar beets, but there's a whole long process involved in extracting the sugars from corn that other countries don't have to go through that use sugar cane, plus there's a left-over by-product from the corn solids that ends up going to cattle feed, instead of feeding them grass. They're finding beef from grass-fed cattle is healthier.

Proud of her--(First lady)--she has the same class as Jacqueline Kennedy. It is so sad to see her maligned because of the hatred some have for her husband.

aj0201

Agreed. I’ve never understood the hatred shown towards Michelle Obama. I found her to be one of the most engaging First Ladies we’ve had. Barbara and Laura Bush were/are fond of her and that’s all I need to know. I think very highly of both of those women as well.

Speaking of former first lady causes aj to lose it...I’ve we’ve Those darn free Obama phones. Hahahahaha! Our First lady, Melania puts the "E" in elegance...she was called the crown jewel at the State Banquet at Buckingham Palace - just beautiful. She has been compared to former First Lady, Jacquline Kennedy - what an honor!

WakeUpUS

Michael Obama made disparaging remarks about 'FINALLY' being able to be proud of America, & similar Leftist comments. It figures YOU would rush to the defense & support M.O. [whistling][ninja]

aj0201

She didn’t say she was “finally†proud of America. She said that for the first time in her adult life she was proud of America because people were embracing change. Figures you would rush to make an inaccurate quote to mock and disparage

WakeUpUS

"... for the first time in her adult life she was proud of America because people were embracing change..." I KNEW that's what M. Obama said. It doesn't look Patriotic to say on TV that it took 35 some odd years to FINALLY be proud of America, when you're the first 'lady'... [whistling][tongue_smile]

WakeUpUS

She was practicing the 'racial-division' facet of Identity Politics, a Leftist trademark.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

She didn't need to "practice" racial identity politics, she and Barry invented it

aj0201

She wasn’t the First Lady when she said that. If we’re going to hold what they say and do prior to the election, then don’t nude photos count?

WakeUpUS

People tend to prefer beautiful nude patriots over Leftist shills built like a linebacker... [beam][wink]

From what I've heard and read there's a more hateful remarks made toward Mrs Trump than towards Mrs. Obama. Especially on this form. I think both ladies deserve better than their getting. Remember what Jesus said those without sin case the first stone. No one picked up a stone all just walked away. Maybe some here should heed that advice. Because no one here is sin free.

jdw64485

Opps. Case should be cast.

WakeUpUS

Former first 'she's no lady' M. Obama commonly showed contempt for those who stood against the Leftist agenda for America. A lack of class, IMO. [whistling][huh]

James Bond1

My, my, M. Obumer was a veeeeeeery racist person. She came aboard with a chip on her shoulder and when she looked in the mirror, she saw the "Queen" and expected the world to kiss her backside. What an attitude...…….She wasn't in the same anything as Mrs. Trump.

aj0201

Give a specific example of how she was racist JamesBond1.

WakeUpUS

Give a specific example of how you was a 'unapologetic capitalist' aj0201.

James Bond1

Maybe you noticed that when the previous10 Presidential wives had 3 or 4 staff, Moochelle needed 23 or more. What do you read into that...………..? Some of her apparences quoted in the paper were clearly racist. She also drew some pretty obvious lines when she made appearences to selected schools or other groups that were pretty bad.

Watch out......Not only will it harm your vehicle, it is doubly bad for your mowers and weed eaters! I will no longer buy anything other then premium.

I use E85 in my car since it was new. Never use anything else. No problems at all.little over 175,000 miles. I use the E10 in all others. If you vehicles are not sit up to use the higher E85 blend don't use it. I've not read or heard that all fuel will be converted to E85.

popski

If your vehicle is "flex fuel", it will use E85 fine. However, it if is NOT "flex fuel", it will eventually damage your injector seals and other fuel components. Guaranteed. I work in the petroleum industry and I know that it is about half, if not less, efficient than regular unleaded fuel. Most gasoline, today, is at least 10% alcohol based...lots of stations are at 15%. Currently, unless a station has specific allowance, they aren't allowed to sell higher mixes than 15%.

jdw64485

I agree it must be a flex fuel vehicle. Do not use in any vehicle not tuned to use flex fuel. I learned that the hard way
