Placeholder It's Your Call

Means testing

School Board President Seth Wright made the comment that he felt really bad because the kids in St. Joe felt like we didn’t care about them, because we don’t have really big, fancy schools. I sure as heck hope that every single parent who can’t afford a big, fancy house doesn’t have kids that feel like they don’t care about them just because they can’t spend a lot of money on them. Sometimes we have to live within our means.

Car talk

I saw a comment about comparing the new model of one high school to different areas of town and the fact that kids in the North and South ends don’t have cars to get to school and have to walk a long distance, while kids in the east have their own cars. I wonder if transportation was ever figured into these models, and isn’t that one of the biggest expenses the school district has?

True believers

Transporting, growing or selling marijuana is a felony. That is, until the politicians found out they can make a bunch of money on it.

Run, Nikki, run

Watching all the talking heads debating on why ex-governor Nikki Haley jumped in and started defending President Donald Trump out of the clear, blue sky, and I think I have the answer. I think she’s running for vice president.

Truth on trial

This is what baffles a thinking person about Trump’s detractors. They just cannot deal with the truth. They have to rationalize everything because the truth is not their friend.

Quite a few

Yeah, I’m just kind of curious, I wonder how many heads are going to explode when Trump gets re-elected.

Here comes the soul

To that person who is still opposed to a woman’s choice, let me say this. Some of us believe that it’s just a fetus until it takes its first breath. Then it becomes a person, the soul enters the body at that point. So why don’t you mind your own business?

Good and evil

It was not OK to say there were fine people on both sides at Charlottesville. White supremacists are not fine people. One side was good, one was evil.

Mayor sparkles

I think that Mayor Bill McMurray did an outstanding job, as he always does, to take care of this city, and Tracy Gillespie, the homeless man who considers himself an ambassador for the homeless, needs to understand that for this society and this city to function, we cannot be nomads.

Free advice

I think people have lost sight of what it takes to really educate a child, which means encouraging them to think for themselves and learn by exploring the world around them. And that doesn’t cost anything.

So George Kent on Wednesday confirms that Biden was working to end corruption in Ukraine? Not participate in corruption. Unchallenged by Republicans.

cry foe me

Hint hint Biden was the corruption. All you brain dead have to do is watch the video of Biden threaten to hold back money if the investigator investigating his son is not fired! There solved for the sheep.

“President Donald Trump ignored Pentagon advice Friday and pardoned two service members, while also restoring the rank of a third after all faced war crimes allegations.

Trump granted full pardons to Army 1st Lt. Clint Lorance and Army Major Mathew Golsteyn, and restored the rank of Navy SEAL Eddie R. Gallagher, who had been demoted.

Lorance was released from the United States Disciplinary Barracks in Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, just before 10:30 p.m. local time Friday. He was wearing his Army uniform, according to CNN Producer Dan Shepherd who witnessed the reunion. His aunt, uncle, cousin and three nieces were waiting for him at a hotel following his release.

Defense Secretary Mark Esper and other senior military leaders had told the President that a presidential pardon could potentially damage the integrity of the military judicial system, the ability of military leaders to ensure good order and discipline, and the confidence of US allies and partners who host US troops.”

Train a soldier to kill, send them in to kill but they kill a terrorist bomb maker punish them? Your objective is to neutralize they enemy! Yes I have served in the armed forces and have seen what our enemy are capable of doing. Cutting off heads, burning people alive, IEDs . No dirty fighting in war, you objective is to defeat the enemy at any cost and to survive!

aj0201

With those thoughts, I doubt you served.

cry foe me

Aj I never go for the free dinners or talk about my time in the service, many a great man and woman paid the ultimate sacrifice . Still see the faces of friends that are no longer here. Best think to do is to remember them.

aj0201

Still doubt you served. I did not. But every service man and woman I know takes integrity and honor seriously. Committing war crimes is neither.

aj0201

Ok! Will do. You keep supporting war criminals. War criminals as described by their own command and brothers in arms. No doubt you were a war criminal as well.

JohnQTaxpayer

vaj0201 served. He STILL serves. Unfortunately, he serves the side supporting the hiLIARy Clinton crowd, & openly admits voting for the socialist witch... [huh]

cry foe me

The Armed Forces love Trump, a president that has their backs. You can't send someone in to kill someone and then punish them for it! the PC bunch.

cry foe me

Aj, don't throw rocks at people you do not know, you might get hit back. Grow a spine!

JohnQTaxpayer

Vaj0201 just got 'schooled' by a REAL American..!!! [beam][lol][cool][thumbup][thumbup]

Good job, President Trump!! [cool][thumbup]

aj0201

It Trump genuinely wanted to investigate Burisma , there are standard operating procedures for doing so through DOJ and FBI. Is there any evidence that such actions were initiated? None has been provided so far

Here comes the soul. Are you saying the soul enters the body after the baby is born? Just where did you get this information?

Penelope Goodbody

All aborted babies souls will go to heaven despite their bodies being mangled, burned by acid and cut up. The Democrats want late term abortion; in fact, that's the platform the candidates are supporting. Remember that when you go to the polls to vote next November!

jdw64485

So true. But still a baby should have the right to live. It should never be aborted just for birth control. Or someone doesn't want to take responsibility for their own action

Colo

We definitely have a cry baby Fake President that has no Soul

jdw64485

Everybody has a soul. Even you.

JohnQTaxpayer

Colo, do you have any children..? Any grandchildren..? [whistling][huh]

Remember, those aborted baby's are worth money to the steam cell research! Planned Parenthood should be named planned abortion.

JohnQTaxpayer

or Planned Infanticide.

aj0201

Hardly the swamp....

Taylor, a West Point grad, was called out of retirement by...

wait for it...

the @realDonaldTrump Administration. He has not been fired.

Kent, who speaks 7 languages, has not been fired.

Yovanovitch received the State Department’s Superior Honor Award 5 times

JohnQTaxpayer

She was ousted after handing the Ukaine officials a list of their own people who 'were NOT to be prosecuted'. They told her to go pound sand. Trump dismissed her. Many Presidents have dismissed entire sections of a previous administration's staff with no more explanation than a 'thank you for your service'. But the Press & the Democrats never criticize them, because it's a new President's prerogative to do so if he wishes. At least Trump gave them an opportunity to keep a seat 'at the table'. How did they repay him..? [whistling][huh]

JohnQTaxpayer

Note: Yovanavich got to finish out most of her term, & still holds a job at the State Department. What an ingrate. [huh]

aj0201

Just a reminder....” Today in Syria: Russia takes control of main U.S. military facility abandoned earlier this week by American forces on Trump’s orders. This area is south of Kobani and went to Russia under the Putin-Erdogan deal. Russia now also owns the airstrip we built.”

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Dang!!! Next thing you know that dam' Trump is goin' to give Vlad a big chunk of our uranium production

Since Lying Trump takes All his orders from Vladimir it will definitely happen

No dogs will because NO other American has Ever done that!! Hahahahaha

Colo, Putin lives in your head! The left seem to always push for wars! So we should attack Syria, Russia and Turkey! The left are always showing their violent sides while preaching for peace out of their backsides!

cry foe me

On the plus side, we would have to pull out of the UN to attack Turkey which is a member of the UN. Tempting.

Colo

Gutless Trump cut & Ran from Syria

Free Advice: School District officials spending your dollar$ doesn't equal your children getting an education. Those old buildings are solid-built, & better yet, they are already Paid For. [whistling][huh]

James Bond1

The School District has not identified any benefit for whatever modification or what new features they anticipate. They are just spending money. Maybe they should take a moment in one of their meetings and discuss the "change" they have instituted in the education program to adapt to what is going on in our world.

James Bond1

I have often wondered why our children go to school for 12 years and never have a course to provide them even a little insight into the two most important knowledge/skills they will face for their entire life...………….health and financial affairs.

As Always the Radicals hate Education

JaneBond... Would you block All Black children from schools?

All sjsd students have required health class in 7th,8th, and 10th grade(required for graduation) as well as a personal finance class in high school that is required for graduation. All are Board policy requirements. Please research your thoughts before posting them!!

JohnQTaxpayer

All sjsd students have daily 'CNN Student' Liberal indoctrination disguised as 'Current Events' content. Who do you think they will view in a positive light, & who do you think YOUR children will view in a negative light following YEARS of such indoctrination? VOTE NO for future SJSD funding. [whistling][huh][thumbdown]

James Bond1

In the past 20 years or so in casual discussions I have asked when do you suppose the education system will change it's out of date system of "grades" ( 1 through 12 ) When computers showed up in the 1960s it made a lot of sense to modify our educational system to be overhauled significantly...………..no sign of it yet.

aj0201

Tell us about blockchain tech in schools...?

cry foe me

Andre, how does that work in WA, you're only 30 so you have a lot to learn in life.

cry foe me

I never thought a small town like St Joe would be able to spend that much money. We didn't have air conditioning in schools in St joe when I went. We just opened the windows when it was hot. Prepare to pay more taxes again. Did they ever recoup the money from the last scandal ?

justanotherworkingman

Good an evil....While we can agree that white supremacists are not "good people" they weren't the only ones protesting and it was those who Trump was addressing. Some people were there because the statues represented a time in American history and it was in danger of being torn down, revised and erased. Not everyone who wants to keep this part of history out there for everyone to see is an evil person.

aj0201

Really? I’ve yet to hear from or read an interview from anyone that was there just for the statue.

JohnQTaxpayer

Just because YOU 'read' or 'didn't' something doesn't necessarily mean it's 'true' or 'untrue' vaj. I mean, you're NOT the omnipotent arbiter of Truth, though you seem to consider yourself to be some kind of a self-appointed 'Snopes-ter' of IYC... [beam][whistling]

aj0201

Feel free to provide a quote or some other source of information to clue me in. I have no problem admitting I’m wrong.

JohnQTaxpayer

You DO have a problem admitting you're wrong.

aj0201

Nope

Poor Lying Donnie has an Extremely bad day yesterday!!

No Antifa was just there to tear down historical statues they disagreed with!

aj0201

No

Your right Aj, they were there to start a fight! only problem is they can never finish one without crying! I could say Boo and they would run for the safe space.

Here comes the soul....All that is required for evil to flourish is for people of good conscience to do nothing. We'll "mind our own business" when you quit using abortion as birth control and start acting like educated adults.

JohnQTaxpayer

Caller: According to Scripture, a 'soul' is the combination of body & 'the breath of life'. You don't 'put a soul into a body'. It's both parts combined. [whistling]

Keep kicking a dead horse! you need to thank the big O's administration for starting that!

cry foe me

I hate to say, maybe we should let is stand, I do not see that many that lean to the right waiting in lines for abortions. If we stop aborting the left, we will just wind of with more that are raised with their belief.
