Placeholder It's Your Call

Meriwether’s dog

This is a reply to the ignorant hypocrisy caller. Meriwether had a Newfoundland, which was on the front of the boat and in the famous Thomas Hart Benton painting of them coming to St. Louis. He was going to kill every single Blackfoot — or maybe it was the Crow — in the northwest when they took his Newfoundland. So that’s how Lewis felt about his dog. He got it back the next day.

Improvement

I just read an article about saints in the paper the day before All Saints Day. It’s also good to remember Oct. 31 as Reformation Day. A reformation is an improvement resulting in a condition superior to an earlier one.

Anyone but Hawley

“Far and Wide,” you were spot on. As far as Josh Hawley, he couldn’t care less about the citizens of Missouri. Hopefully, he won’t get re-elected.

Justice served

I’m sure glad the judge gave the maximum penalty to the ex-teacher of one of our schools, that used to be a really good school.

Much worse

In a two-party system, when one party revolts against the vote of the people, and then votes for impeachment, they are guilty of breaking constitutional voting law. This is a high crime. Much worse than a phone call asking about Biden’s corruption.

Focus on teaching

All five options given by the firm are to build, build, build. More administrators and new buildings are not the keys to better education. Good teachers and a disciplined classroom could educate in a barn. What we need to throw money at is better teachers, smaller classes and better discipline.

What point?

To the person criticizing Mitch McConnell for not bringing something to the floor if the president won’t sign it, what’s the point of bringing something to a vote in the Senate if the president isn’t going to approve it? No matter who the president is.

Thinking of you

Edmund Burke said, “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.” He could have been speaking about our Republican Congress, couldn’t he?

Finding fault

St. Joseph’s School District reminds me of the Democrats. They keep on trying to change things as they are, finding fault with everything. They need to take care of what they have now, and do it right.

Liberal mind

How can Joe Biden say he’s a practicing Catholic and he practices his beliefs, and still support abortion? That only works in a liberal mind, I guess.

Cold is better

Sure is nice, this cold weather. Getting rid of a lot of allergies, and something to talk about besides our president and how to get rid of him.

New resident

I just wanted to say, poor Florida. They’re getting a new resident, and I feel so sorry for them.

The attempts to out the whistleblower, apart from being illegal and substantively pointless, amount to despicable thuggery being encouraged by the president of the United States.

aj0201

“ Libertarians, constitutional conservatives, and classical liberals believe in protecting whistleblowers to expose government corruption. Trump Republicans believe in exposing whistleblowers to protect government corruption.”

aj0201

In 2014, a poll found that 68% of Republicans favored impeaching President Obama. The most commonly-cited reason was for exceeding the constitutional limits placed on his Presidential powers.

aj0201

If written questions and answers are good enough for Trump, they're good enough for the whistleblower

jdw64485

Wrong a person has right to face his/her accusers. The whistleblower was accusing Trump of a crime. Trump was just answering written questions.

aj0201

Wrong. A whistleblower is protected by federal law. He doesn’t have to answer ANY questions at this point.

jdw64485

Your right. At this point he or she doesn't. But at some ;point they will be required to answer questions. Then they'll need to face Trump.

aj0201

Nope. The law says they don’t have to.

aj0201

Let’s call Hannity to confirm...

“ Republicans got what they wanted -- public release of witness testimony.

Thing is, that testimony only bolsters Democrats' case against Trump.

And it raises questions about Pompeo's involvement.”

aj0201

Trump is looking for his people. Didn’t find it in baseball. Mixed reaction at mixed martial arts. Let’s try college football in the south...

“President Trump is expected to attend the LSU vs. Alabama game in Tuscaloosa on Saturday, a source familiar with the planning says“

aj0201

From June through October, Trump mentioned Obama's name 366 times. Almost all of them were disparaging.

During the same period of Obama's presidency, Obama mentioned George W. Bush ONCE: to praise Bush for condemning bigotry against Muslims after 9/11

jdw64485

Your work must be slow if you have time to just sit and count this stuff.

aj0201

Nope. The news counted it. I just copied it. Nice try though.

aj0201

Hey B4, maybe you should call the President. That buffoon is still asking who the whistleblower is. You say it’s been revealed. Either he’s stupid or you’re lying.

B4

Here's a little refresher course regarding Nov mid-term elections. To Colo et al:

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. Of course since you're all delusional Leftists, 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.

munchm1

t rump lost because he is trump. The others lost because of blind hatred from the right. Not a refresher, I felt sorry for you and decided even fools deserve the truth.

aj0201

Republican logic 101...

11:54am: Democrats announce they'll be releasing the transcript of Volker's testimony tomorrow.

An hour later: Rep. Jordan angrily demanded that the Democrats release the transcript of Volker's testimony.

mywagginisdraggin

Rep. Jordan knows the lying Democrats too well.... they MIGHT release THEIR version of transcripts....

aj0201

Actually, hall monitor, I don't ally with either of your corrupt major political parties. I would have been glad to vote for a decent Republican candidate in 2016, but any thinking person could see what an unethical psychopath was the Donald. While I don't plan on voting strictly for either party during my visits, I will be hard pressed to vote for anyone at a national level in a party so spineless that they would allow a sociopath sexual predator to turn the GOP into a sad joke.

Trump just tweeted that there's "nothing wrong" with engaging in "quid pro quo" to extort a foreign power into attacking our election. We are in some seriously dark times when the president's defense becomes "I didn't do the crime, but there's nothing wrong with crime if I did."

mywagginisdraggin

Donald.. go for the money !!!!

munchm1

At last a t rumppaneeze who has finally figured out the only reason t rump ran. All of you Connie's are more of a patriot and statesman than him.

aj0201

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"

aj0201

“A president whose character manifests itself in patterns of reckless personal conduct, deceit, abuse of power, and contempt for the rule of law cannot be a good president.”

—Bill Bennett, The Death of Outrage (1998)

“ I’m a conservative, but I have no doubt that Donald Trump’s actual authoritarianism is a much bigger threat to this country than any of the Democrat’s hoped-for socialism.

Put another way: I’m way more afraid of a dictator than I am of a guaranteed jobs program or free college.” —— Joe Walsh, Republican candidate for President, 2020.

Asian students often study in sub-standard buildings and outscore our students consistently. I am familiar with an country school in Africa with dirt floors, an ancient blackboard, no lunch program, and few books. There is no air-conditioning. Many students walk more than 5 miles to attend classes. At home their diet is primarily corn meal mush.

I’m waiting for that day to happen. Yesterday, MartyWinger was proven wrong but wouldn’t accept that. A few days ago beeliar was as well. Yesterday beeliar commented with false piety as well something about the Lords Day when he knows good and well he comments on Sundays frequently.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

If AJ is referring to me, there was nothing yesterday I was "proven wrong" about by him or anyone else commenting on this forum. My first comment yesterday was about Joe Biden, last week on PBS News Hour, told Ms. Woodruff he didn't know his son, Hunter, was on the board of Ukrainian energy company, Burisma. That is true, it happened. My second comment was about Elizabeth Warren meeting with native Americans to apologize for her false use of an Indian heritage for her personal advantage. That is true, it happened.

mywagginisdraggin

aj just gets upset when ANYONE disagrees with his opinions..buy him a bag of pacifiers

mywagginisdraggin

keep in mind..aj is ALWAYS waiting for responses...sad, sad, little NON-life

aj0201

You said “college admissions application.” Fake

mywagginisdraggin

lie after lie after lie..it's all just to be voted the nominee...what REALLY happens afterwards is the real world..stupidity will comeback to haunt stupid people

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Ms. Warren's own admission and accompanying apology to the Amerind community would seem sufficient, but there are many documented instances: Her Texas Bar registration; her self-reporting as a "minority professor" in the Association of American Law Schools staff directory; her contributions to "Pow Wow Chow" Native American cookbook. Then her farcical claim of minority heritage carried over into her law career: Harvard touted her as the law school’s first “woman of color;" the University of Pennsylvania identified her as a minority winner of a teaching award. Her academic and professional advancements were built on a lie, a lie she finally acknowledged and apologized for.

aj0201

You “college admissions application” in order to “gain an advantage over other applicants.” Now you’re backtracking from that false statement. Need Rudy Ghouliani to tell us all what you really meant?

Marty_Chuzzlewit

There is no need to endlessly litigate Senator's Warren's false claim of Amerind heritage on this forum. She acknowledged to an Amerind audience she had used that lie to advance her academic, professional and political careers and apologized to the crowd for doing so.

aj0201

“No need to endlessly litigate” sounds like a weasely way of saying “please drop it. I know I was wrong.” 🤣🤣🤣🤣

Marty_Chuzzlewit

A guilty plea makes, for me, a conclusion to litigation.

aj0201

Yes. But your facts were wrong.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Your argument then is with Sen. Warren's own admission of having for decades knowingly used a false claim of Amerind heritage to advance her academic, professional and political careers.

aj0201

No. My argument is that you said she used it in her college admissions application. She did not.

aj0201

Also that it was to gain advantage over other applicants. That’s false.
