Call for competition

I think we need a new hospital in town, one to compete with the one we’ve got.

New year lesson

If this past year, 2020, taught us anything it’s that it’s the workers that keep America going, keep the economy going, not billionaires. Because corporate profits don’t trickle down. The other thing it taught us is that health care needs to be a human right and that every single vote obviously matters. I hope from now on we start acting on these new lessons in this new year.

Yeah, baby

Trump’s Mini-Me, Josh Hawley, is trying to turn our democracy into a dictatorship.

Leadership call

The recorded phone call between the president of the United States and the Georgia secretary of state featured one strong, Republican leader with conviction who would be great for America. It wasn’t Donald Trump.

The names

I think the News-Press should post the names of every senator and congressman that is trying to derail the democracy of our country by signing on to the frivolous lawsuits.

At risk groups

I read the Weekender paper and noticed a bunch of stuff about COVID. What’s truly a miracle, people that are getting these vaccines first are the nurses and doctors — and they need to — but then it’s people that are 75 years of age and older. So that just tells you right there, people probably from 65 to 85 are the ones catching it and dying. And that just shows you how many people are in nursing homes and veterans homes throughout the nation.

Masks and science

Science says to keep from spreading COVID-19 you need to wear a mask. So if Harrison County has done away with their mask mandate, then they are not following science.

Wake up

Don’t people know that when you lose your freedom of religion you have lost every freedom? The people that are doing this to us know it. Wake up, public, and start standing up to these people. Or are we too lazy and comfortable to do anything? I sure hope not.

Insurance factor

Instead of hiring someone to help them find substitute teachers, why doesn’t the school district hire someone to help them find cheaper insurance for their employees?

Gosh, if only Al Gore and Hillary Clinton had been told the Vice President could simply reject electors and anoint the next President of the United States.

aj0201

The absurdity of this is mind boggling. They don’t understand what this is doing to our image abroad. We send people all the time to monitor elections in other countries. Now these bozos are making it seem that we can’t run an election. And let’s not forget that Trump set up a commission looking for voter fraud in 2017 that found absolutely 0 evidence. They also don’t realize how they’re going to react if democrats end up doing the same thing in the future. These are the least intelligent, least strategic Republicans ive ever seen.

fandb

Time to do away with the electoral college that would eliminate all of BS that's going to happen tomorrow !

At risk groups---Gee, I wonder who promised a vaccine in 2020, put it on a fast track, and made it available as promised? Hint: It wasn't Joe Biden.

aj0201

Tell us, what opposition did Trump face with fast tracking the vaccine? This was literally the lowest bar achievement of his administration where most of his achievements looked like a limbo contest at the local skating rink.

bigoak

Various Democrat leaders laughed at the idea, advised people not to trust the vaccine, and Governor Cuomo initially said he did not want the vaccine in New York---later he begged for it. Many Democrats said it was "impossible" and Fox has shown many tapes of Democrats voicing their opposition.

aj0201

Nonsense. Cuomo never said that and democrats never had a problem with a vaccine. Why is it so easy for you to lie?

eye4eyenalways@att.net

OH.. early on, Cuomo DID say he didn't want the vaccine in NY. go back a year and read your copy/paste notes and the CNN news of the days.. lol

aj0201

No he didn’t.

Masks and science--I often eat at a restaurant where virtually no one wears a mask. There is a group of elderly men who meet there daily and have all of 2020 with none wearing a mask, and none coming down with the virus.

eye4eyenalways@att.net

.. the company you keep....

bigoak

At risk groups---Statistics show that the elderly (who usually have existing conditions) are more likely to die from the virus. But everyone is at risk of the virus, it is just that symptoms are generally more severe in the elderly. Also, many elderly are living in segregated groups where it is easier for the virus to spread.

torogem@yahoo.com

Yeah right, 1/60 in the courts, many planted by the orange lying coward. We know we’re surrounded by delusional nut jobs. Hawley is just pandering to the cult.

bigoak

Hate is a self-destructive emotion. How would you have responded if Obama was referred to as the black gorilla? Why is it ok one way and not the other. Hypocrisy!

torogem@yahoo.com

The orange lying coward doesn’t deserve a emotion as powerful as hate, nay it’s pity.

aj0201

Trump chooses to be orange, my goodness this is hard for you. Critical thinking is not a virtue in Trumplandia.

bigoak

The names---Those Republicans are trying to insure that the United States does not become a "banana republic" with rigged elections. 2020 surely has that smell.

aj0201

They’re making it a banana republic. The president is threatening elected officials to find votes and “recalculate.” A stunning admission that he knows he lost.

bigoak

He did win---Democrats cheated. End of discussion.

aj0201

Where’s the evidence? 1-60 in court cases due to lack of evidence. Plump made the same claims in 2016-17. No evidence ever found. See the pattern?

bigoak

Insurance factor---There are cases where a decision on insurance is based on "connections".

bigoak

Masks and science--2020, the year Science became God??

aj0201

Who said that? Science doesn’t trump god not does it preclude God. Science is science. That’s all. The science overwhelmingly points to wearing masks to help stop the spread of a virus.

bigoak

Wake up--The Democrats simply can't have a power higher than themselves. They attack religion as anti-science (not true), as ancient superstition, as based on a "myth". Just stick to your faith, and know a day of judgement is coming for all.

eye4eyenalways@att.net

Call for competition>> got that right, go to a KC hospital if at all possible; at least there you have survival chances

aj0201

Wake up...what religious freedoms have been lost? Another human condition we’ve really seen is how comfortable so many people are with being a victim. They desire to be a victim so they can make claims like this. Trump touted himself as being the guy who made it ok to say “Merry Christmas” again. When was it ever not ok to say that? Yet his supporters enthusiastically agree with him, bobbing their heads up and down like the good little victims they are.

eye4eyenalways@att.net

there's very little religion associated with Christmas these days.. it's all about spending money to impress others... bigger and bigger tv's, brand new automobiles, gifts gifts gifts.. commercialization

bigoak

You? Talking about "bobble heads"? You begin nodding every time CNN or MSNBC files a false report.

aj0201

You say that but I don’t watch either one. That’s the only argument you have left.

aj0201

Masks and science...this virus has shown us a few things about humans. Humans don’t like to be told what to do, even if that means saving lives. Humans don’t really behave in any altruistic fashion. Humans only care about other humans as long as what is happening with other humans doesn’t inconvenience them. Humans really don’t believe in taking up their cross. Humans are really ok with letting other humans die as long as they can still get a haircut and go out to dinner.

eye4eyenalways@att.net

care about YOURSELF first, cos nobody else cares about you

aj0201

At risk groups...covid deniers are all for “herd immunity.” Many of them are in conservative circles and many of them are in faith communities. Amazing how Darwinian these “people of faith” are. They don’t mind letting the old and sick die from a virus as long as their lives are only minimally disrupted. It’s a crazy world we live in.

eye4eyenalways@att.net

.. I don't care... everyone gets sick and dies at some point..

aj0201

The names....don’t be surprised if that becomes widely known after Wednesday.

eye4eyenalways@att.net

... doubtful ANY news source is gonna publish nearly 200 names..

aj0201

Yeah, baby....Josh Hawley has turned out to be nothing more than a political opportunist, and in the worst way. Funny to watch him squirm when confronted by Jake Tapper. An easy logical conclusion made him look like a fool. There is nothing he could do now to regain my vote.

eye4eyenalways@att.net

.. political posturing.. not concerned with it

torogem@yahoo.com

Sadly a trumpkin looks at his reprehensible behavior and sees this weasel as their champion. He went to Yale so he knows his just playing his hand to pander to these cultists.

aj0201

New year lesson...great points. Millions of Americans lost their jobs thus losing their healthcare during a pandemic. If that doesn’t show the absurdity of tying healthcare to employment I don’t know what would. The same type person who stands against any type of universal healthcare also squawks bout increased Medicare payouts to hospitals for covid. Instead of researching why, they believe it’s part of the conspiracy they think covid is.

eye4eyenalways@att.net

covid is as real as it get

torogem@yahoo.com

Caller if anything religions have, thanks to The Supreme Court, are in their glory day’s. Mega Churches paying no taxes while their Jimmy Swaggerts party like it’s 1999.
