Placeholder It's Your Call

Sliver of money

Hey, Dr. Van Zyl, how about we cut your salary in half so that we can generate more than $100,000 back into the school system so you don’t have to cut out any of our three high schools? We happen to like the three high schools. So leave them alone, and do what you’re supposed to do: keep them running.

Tough love

President Donald Trumps says, “I love Florida, Florida loves me.” I got news for you, buddy. I know some people down there who can’t stand you.

Railroaded

The national debt is not a Trump deal. He’s a small part of it. Former President Barack Obama was a huge part. And I think we should just elect Sen. Elizabeth Warren and get on that bankruptcy train going downhill and be done in four or five years.

Sign, sign

I’ve been a Republican my whole life, and if I’ve got anything to do, I’m going out to see how many Democrat signs I can get and put in my yard.

Behavior issue

The issue with Apple Bus Co. is a driver shortage. No one wants to drive a bus anymore because the students don’t behave. They have no respect. It’s hard to drive safely and babysit the 60 or so children on the bus. The need to board the bus and sit down until their destination is reached. There are cameras on the bus and discipline write-ups, but discipline needs to start at home.

Just a mess

What’s undemocratic, Trump, is you and all your followers. The sooner you’re out of there, the better this country’s going to be. We need to get back to some normalcy. It’s just a mess in this country.

Where was it?

The News-Press keeps admonishing us that they will not accept any more calls or letters about the election after a certain date. I haven’t seen any calls or letters about the election. In fact, I wasn’t aware there was an election. I’m not sure what’s going on. I read the paper faithfully, front to back, but I must have missed something.

Editor’s note: Buchanan County voters to go to the polls Nov. 5 to decide on a sales tax extension. We published front-page articles on this tax Oct. 22 and Oct. 10. An editorial endorsement was published Oct. 27.

Left behind

To the schools: You know why your kids get these low scores? These poor kids get left behind. Is that the way it’s going to be in the new schools when you build them?

"We have a very powerful wall. But no matter how powerful, you can cut through anything, in all fairness. But we have a lot of people watching. You know cutting, cutting is one thing, but it's easily fixed. One of the reasons we did it the way we did it, it's very easily fixed. You put the chunk back in,” Trump said.

------------------------------------

So explain to me again why the Trump Government is taking billions of dollars from much-needed military projects and wasting those funds on building a wall that can be sliced through with power tools from Home Depot?

“ The Whistleblower got it sooo wrong that HE must come forward. The Fake News Media knows who he is but, being an arm of the Democrat Party, don’t want to reveal him because there would be he ll to pay.

Reveal the Whistleblower and end the Impeachment Hoax!”. Stable genius.

Fox's Bill Bennett: "All of foreign relations is quid pro quo...There's good quid pro quo, there's bad quid pro quo...This quid pro quo, if it actually was completed, which it wasn't, was a good thing. We were trying to help Ukraine

Pelosi to Trump, "All roads with you lead to Putin"

Forest fires: California or Russia? Trump picks Putin

Baghdadi: Trump thanks Putin

Crimea sanctions: Putin

Russia & US election: Putin

FBI & CIA or KGB? Putin

NATO, G7, INF: Putin

Ukraine, Syria & Turkey: Putin

Kurds: Putin

“ The Angry Majority!” DJT via Twitter. He finally recognizes the majority is angry with him and ready for him to be gone.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

You read that twitter message 180-degrees wrong

aj0201

What majority could he be speaking of??

Marty_Chuzzlewit

The moral majority

aj0201

Oh my. That’s hilarious! Great joke!

Lori and Mossimo are now facing around 50 years in prison if found guilty. And if you're wondering if things could get any worse, well, according to a legal expert, Lori and Mossimo's daughters Olivia and Bella could also theoretically be charged as defendants in the case. LOCK EM ALL UP

Marty_Chuzzlewit

What Lori, Mossimo and the other 49 parents did was wrong, but at least their misdeeds were committed for the benefit of their children, not directly themselves. Much different for the prominent Democrat presidential candidate who falsely claimed a minority heritage on her college admission application in order to intentionally gain advantage over other applicants. Shamed when her scam was made public? Not her, but typical for liberals.

aj0201

Fake

B4

Not fake - well documented as solid FACT!

aj0201

Oh? Care to provide a link to that documentation? Hahahahaha!

Warren apologizes for heritage claim---SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren offered a public apology Monday to Native Americans over her past claim to tribal heritage, directly tackling an area that’s proved to be a big political liability. “Like anyone who has been honest with themselves, I know I have made mistakes,” the Massachusetts senator said at a forum on Native American issues in this pivotal early voting state.

aj0201

Hahaha! Did you bother to read that piece?

B4

And for the 1,100,000+ time, aj makes a fool out of himself! Hahahahahahahaha![ohmy][beam][thumbup][thumbup]

Marty_Chuzzlewit

B4, don't be too hard on aj, the national political news the past week and especially the last few days has to be devastating to the anti-Trump scummers.

aj0201

Hahahaha! Whatever. You didn’t read it.

aj0201

I’ll admit I read it fast. Maybe you could point me to the part where it says “college admissions application?”

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Of course, aj, I read the article and posted the link at your request so others interested could also about Warren's duplicity which she has at last acknowledged. It is interesting she drew the largest crowd of her campaign, 12K, at the Sioux City pow-wow. President Trump fills arenas of 10's of thousands and usually has that many more outside watching his MAGA events on giant screens. Last week was the week any chance of a Democrat candidate's victory over President Trump in 2020 was laid to rest, good riddance.

aj0201

I requested that article? When?

aj0201 Nov 3, 2019 4:05pm

Oh? Care to provide a link to that documentation? Hahahahaha!

Marty_Chuzzlewit

aj was smitten by the Biden syndrome

aj0201

I requested documentation that said Warren used the Native American claim for college admissions. That’s not in that

50% disapprove of Pelosi's handling of impeachment, 43% approve, 7% no opinion

mywagginisdraggin

Pelosi's impeachment resolution turns into a massive fundraising day for Trump's 2020 campaign

mywagginisdraggin

Where was it? ... our local news always publishes things AFTER the fact...long ago, there used to be a column of "Upcoming Events" so we, the people could attend...guess it's more laziness nowadays

mywagginisdraggin

Behavior issue....you got that exactly right !! Apple should hire aj0201 to "comfort" these vagabond unruly kids to and from school

mywagginisdraggin

Tough love ... i'm sure there are HUNDREDS that don't love you either

jdw64485

I'm don't reside in the St. Joe school district. But from what i do read and hear there's not going to be any a new school. If it has to go to a vote to get it.

mywagginisdraggin

jdw.. exactly the sentiment... just more wasteful spending to put st. joe "up with the times"... the kids don't care, they play on cell phones all day long

JohnQTaxpayer

I'm a 'NO' voter for ANY and ALL tax extensions or increases. Keep your money. The schools have ENOUGH. [whistling][huh]

mywagginisdraggin

RIGHT ON !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! pampering children leads to more unruly kids.. KICK EM OUT, let kansas city have em

mywagginisdraggin

as i understand it, ANY new school issue MUST go to the voters... anticipate DEFEAT on new schools

beelog

It is the Lord's Day. Rejoice and be glad. Be kind to one another.

jdw64485

Good advice. But, everyday is the lords day. We should always be kind to one another

Trump got booed by the liberal elitists at a UFC event.

JohnQTaxpayer

hiLIARy got voted for by liberal Trump-hater vaj0201 [beam]

mywagginisdraggin

no biggy, aj gets booed daily on IYC

aj0201

Railroaded...that call is the essence of the cognitive dissonance it takes to be a Trump supporter.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

"Cognitive dissonance" was on full display last week when Joe Biden on PBS News Hour was asked by Judy Woodruff about his son, Hunter's, involvement with the Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma. Joe's answer: "I didn't know he was on the board of that company." UNBELIEVABLE!!!!

aj0201

Yep. Indeed. That must negate everything Trump has done! Good reporting MartyWinger! Trump is now off the hook since Joe Biden did that.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Just pointing out to a self-acknowledged "scummer" that the leading Democrat candidate to replace President Trump obviously doesn't even know anymore what day it is. As far as Trump being "off the hook," he was never on a "hook" and your ilk are going to be sadly disappointed in the feeble House efforts to nullify our votes that put him in office. But, press on with it, you are assuring President Trump a second term.

aj0201

“Doesn’t know what day it is...?” Interesting given the current occupant believed that the key to success in the War for American Independence was the defense of our airports.

Nothing will surprise me or disappoint me with Congress. I have no faith they’ll do the right thing. And I have no doubt Trump May win a second term. Morality has taken a back seat to truth and decency. Trump is the poster boy for that.

I'maLumberjack...

He should be on a hook. And marty, who let you off the mountain? Doesn't your buddy miss you?

beelog

If it weren't the Lord's Day I would respond.

JohnQTaxpayer

FailVotered...that call is the essence of the cognitive dissonance it takes to be a hiLIARy supporter. [cool]

mywagginisdraggin

aj is aware of all the good Trump has accomplished, even over the Democratic Congress's cries and whines...he will never admit it though

JohnQTaxpayer

BrainNeutered...that call is the essence of the cognitive dissonance it takes to be a hiLIARy supporter... [whistling][tongue_smile]

aj0201

Beeliar says if it weren’t the Lords Day he’d respond as he responds.

mywagginisdraggin

practical vs political: Trump MAY get impeached by Congress, probably NOT guilty by the Senate...so this Democratic charade MAY finally be closed......Politically, we won't know that until next November. lots can happen in a year, and the beat goes on...

mywagginisdraggin

absolutely hilarious...vote for "sleepy joe" hahahaha

mywagginisdraggin

the Dems have NOBODY who can beat Trump...look at the many idiots running....i called and suggested aj.. but was told he yaks much more than Trump..it is what it is..
