Placeholder It's Your Call

Look at history

Republicans are trying to scare people with forecasts of an economic crash if a Democrat becomes president. It’s just hot air. History says otherwise. Republicans were in office at the time of the crash in 1929 and again in 1998. Democrats pulled us out of both disasters.

Editor’s note: The U.S. had a Democratic president in 1998.

No tax dollars

It was announced that Planned Parenthood is going to spend $45 million to elect pro-abortion candidates in 2020. I don’t want any more of my tax dollars to go to Planned Parenthood. It is against my faith and values to abort children.

Get one yourself

To the person who wrote Bad Jobs, apparently they can’t read. They might look at the same paper and see all the good jobs that are listed, that pay very well and have excellent benefits. Maybe they ought to look for a good job if they think there’s only bad jobs out there.

Wolves are out

I’m concerned about these red wolves the Conservation Department is going to be releasing. They already have them and they’re ready to go. Anybody that has any concern over this needs to go to this meeting Tuesday night at the college. Anybody in a rural area, these wolves will kill their dogs and their cats and conservation will not be responsible. This should be addressed.

Get rid of it

Please, for the sake of everybody, especially in this town, get rid of It’s Your Call. People need to read the Bible, go for a walk, talk to their neighbor. Quit acting like kindergartners. No one’s right, no one’s wrong, so just get rid of It’s Your Call.

Going too far

I don’t know how anybody could have voted for AOC. Now she’s wanting to outlaw prisons? What in the world is going on in this world.

Editor’s note: Just to be clear, we believe that caller is referring to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a Congresswoman from New York’s 14th District.

Yeas have it

I read about the college station out there, and they said they didn’t have any taxpayers vote on it, it was already voted on. Well, you know what? Our elected council down there will vote yea on just about anything that comes up. … Our City Council needs to clean out the whole batch, including the mayor, too.

Numbers game

Police Chief Connally has a million excuses. The bottom line is he’s doing a bad job of stopping car thefts and catching the perpetrators. Maybe we need a new police chief.

Russia’s man

Trump loves dictators. He had the Russians in our Oval Office. Russians are our enemy and always have been. And Trump does everything they want him to do. And he tells the Ukraine president, “Oh, you are to have a talk with Russia.” A talk with him? Russia invaded his country. Come on.

So popski has departed this forum? Not surprised. He finally realized the error of his monotonous reminders that The Donald will never face impeachment, as popski stated in his quaint st jo vernacular, "Never gonna happen." Hopefully the gop can find a candidate with functioning brain cells. The last two they finagled into the White House certainly had none.

No, I'm quite correct about popski. As I understand it he made some officious announcement of his departure, he did or does live in st jo, and he did post, "never gonna happen" on this forum several times in regard to the donald's demise. Also, a question: Are you certain the donald has perfect vision? He certainly lacks vision in regard to reality.

jdw64485

I have no clue in regards to his eye sight vision. But he has great vision for The United States. Your welcome to your opinion. I would suggest that you go to the polls and vote as you choose. If Trump loses the election I will except it. Now let me ask if Trump wins the election can you and will you except it.?

Bad editors note: there wasn’t a recession in 1998. I don’t think anything was really happening negatively to our economy in 1998.

There was a very small recession that did not effect employment but raised hill with the Dot.com stocks on the exchange. And it was not the result of anything Clinton did but was from the geed of wall street.

No tax dollars......Planned Parenthood receives an annual federal appropriation of $500 million from American taxpayers and, as the caller indicates, "tithes" a tenth of it to pro-abortion political candidates. Democrats are the party of abortion-on-demand and Planned Parenthood is its coat hanger.

mywagginisdraggin

there's two ways to look at abortion--choice or illegal...if it's choice, the decisions rest with the woman/family...and perhaps more subsidized children on welfare, or if illegal, perhaps more children on welfare..either way it seems mothers don't want kids nowadays no matter what. why not make it illegal to have sex? that would solve many many of the parenthood problems [smile]

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Warren says the solution is to make recreational sex over-taxing for the top 1%

aj0201

How much of that $500 million is used directly for abortions? How much of that $500 million is used for preventative services?

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Planned Parenthood spends nearly 10% of their taxpayer funded "subsidy" to help elect pro-abortion Democrat candidates. Why doesn't PP's corporate leadership spend an equal amount, or ANY amount, to help elect "pro-preventative services" candidates of EITHER political party? Answer, follow the money. Fully 90% of Planned Parenthood's "sales" are for performing abortions, their preventative services are nothing but loss leaders to give them a façade of legitimacy.

aj0201

An artful dance around the question. It’s a pretty straight forward questing Senator Gardner, how much of the $500 federal subsidy is spent directly on abortions? How much is spent on preventative measures?

aj0201

Also, abortion accounts for 3% of all PP services. Given that they perform just over 300,000 abortions a year means that there are 10 million other services they perform or offer.

aj0201

And before jdw can get his panties in a bunch, my recitation if the facts isn’t an endorsement of their abortion services. My point here is quite the opposite.


Marty_Chuzzlewit

Actually, Planned Parenthood does not and WILL NOT publish or otherwise disclose the dollar amount or percent of income derived from each of the various services it performs.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/fact-checker/wp/2015/08/12/for-planned-parenthood-abortion-stats-3-percent-and-94-percent-are-both-misleading/

holymolliemunch

Pro-preventative services candidate doesn't exist in republican party and if you could find one the other bullies in the GOP would name him a RHINO to impede his reelection. In fact pro-women GOP candidates are only are few and far between and they are the women who think abortion is a woman's right to the privacy of her own health decisions.

aj0201

Marty there is nothing misleading to people who understand how this stuff works. Any hospital does the exact same thing PP does when accounting for “procedures.” Mosaic counts each Advil given to patients in its care. We all know that because we know that those items are billed. No different than PP.

If that is a "artful dance", AJ, you hold square dances!

mywagginisdraggin

good point, think i heard the abortion part was relatively small vs the total amount

jdw64485

aj, Of the 300,000 abortions PPP performs. How many are just to save the mothers life?

James Bond1

REM545...………………...maybe you should keep some things out of other things.

aj0201

I don’t know. Probably none. But that’s a different issue than what’s being discussed. Federal $$ do not pay for abortions UNLESS it’s for the life of the mother. Consider that just for a moment jdw.

Colo

Republicans will never Ever Stop Abortion.... Only safe Abortions

jdw64485

First I want to say I do believe your a Christian. But what i can't understand how a Christian can even remotely defend any company that performs abortions. You ask how much of the 500 million is used. After they get the 500 million it's not known where the money goes. On this subject you turn a blind eye on the subject.

aj0201

What an ignorant comment! Planned Parenthood PUBLISHES their budget. Furthermore, like any other healthcare provider that receives public $$ they’re subject to audit. Lastly, ITS AGAINST THE LAW to pay for abortions with federal tax $$. I am a HUGE supporter of the preventative services that Planned Parenthood provides. You know, where most of their federal dollars are spent? In fact, by defunding Planned Parenthood federally, you reduce preventative services leaving behind ONLY abortions. PP can fundraiser all they want and continue to perform abortions. Federal defunding won’t slow that down one iota.

mywagginisdraggin

if PP gets the money, i'd think an audit should show where the money goes--nonetheless, i have no part in it,, so i'd like my money back, in CASH

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Planned Parenthood received $563 million taxpayer monies in fiscal 2019 and has announced it will spend $45 million of it to elect or re-elect pro-abortion Democrat candidates in 2020.

REM541

Easy, keep your nose out of others business and they will keep it out of yours. Simple.

holymolliemunch

What I can't understand who a person who call himself a christian can even remotely defend let alone vote for t rump unless they are a CHINO. Would a christian support a president who gave the green light for the murder of our allies who defeated Isis for us? Would a christian willingly choose a candidate who bragged in private on a tape about sexually assaulting women. Would a true christian support a candidate for president who declared he is the second coming of god? Would a true christian support a candidate who violated federal campaign law to pay off an adult film star or nude model in order to cover up his adultery? Would a true christian support a candidate who married three women, divorcing two of them, because of his adultery. Would a true christian prefer the candidate who has been documented lying 13000 times in less than three years. These are all facts jdw but for some reason your brain is conditioned to deny them. Oh yeah! I forgot it's called cognitive dissonance which in the case of t rump is is just as unpatriotic and Americana as his narcissism, both of which are mental illnesses and defects.

How much of that money was flipped back to the Dem Party?

JohnQTaxpayer

Ukraine’s parliamentarian Andriy Derkach, who is heading a criminal case on interference in the 2016 U.S. elections, revealed on Wednesday that former Vice President Joe Biden was funneled $900,000 for “lobbying activities,” by Burisma Group, where his son Hunter Biden has sat on the board of directors since 2014.

Derkach provided charts and images showing the connection between Burisma and U.S.-based company Rosemont Seneca Partners, which was co-founded by Hunter Biden.

Derkach added, “Using political and economic levelers of influencing Ukrainian authorities and manipulating the issue of providing financial aid to Ukraine, Joe Biden actively assisted closing criminal cases into the activity of former Ukrainian Ecology Minister Mykola Zlochevsky, who is the founder and owner of Burisma Group.”

How long Joe Biden can maintain his delusions marinated in hubris is anyone’s guess. Perhaps he will simply shuffle back into the same box of losers he came from... [whistling][cool]

holymolliemunch

Since when is it illegal to make money lobbying? As usual you are either ignorant of the facts or just another Connie liar. When Biden threatened to withhold aid unless the corrupt head prosecutor was removed, Burisma had already been investigated and found not guilty of violating any Ukrainian laws. He partitioned for the prosecutor's removal and the request of the president and member countries of the IMF. Apparently Alex Jones doesn't believe in fact checking a story before release.

two weeks ago it was Trump bashing, now it's Biden witholding aid, geez these circles keep on revolving. i am more concerned with a bad upcoming winter whereby my bills may skyrocket a few dollars and i won't be able to afford my candy canes for Christmas.[whistling]

Last year when Israel's Defense Minister Leiberman arrived in Houston at the Lockheed Martin plant to take possession of dozens of F35 aircraft, courtesy of US taxpayers and Congress, no one noticed that Leiberman was born and raised in Russia and a close personal friend of Putin. Israel has done much more to influence our elections, foreign policy, Congress, laws... even inside Jefferson City. An Israel lobbyist funded the attack ads targeting Senator Schaff.
