Blame game

I saw someone call in and blame President Trump for 332,964 deaths from coronavirus. This has to be the height of ignorance, to blame one man for the deaths caused by a virus for which there is no cure and, until recently, no vaccine. I also saw the statistics that in 1918, 675,000 people died from the 1918 pandemic and I see nowhere in history where Woodrow Wilson was blamed for those deaths. I don’t understand how people can be so stupid.

Problem solved

The St. Joseph School Board and district has no sympathy or empathy for people of the South Side. Not only have these wonderful citizens had to deal with COVID-19 and a terrible flood, but now the district wants to turn Benton High School into a middle school. This has created great anxiety for these people. Reopen Lake Contrary as a middle school and your overcrowding problem is solved.

Clock is ticking

It’s not too late to impeach Trump. He still has 15 days where he can do irreparable damage. He’s a menace to the entire world.

Lofty ideals

I would just about bet you a bunch of money that Benton High School will somehow be turned into apartments, just like the other schools that have closed. I feel that that’s going to be Benton’s fate in the end.

Inquiring minds

I demand that the News-Press print every penny that’s going to be spent on these school changes and where it’s going.

Editor’s note: At this point there isn’t a specific plan with costs attached.

What’s that?

I read the article about the lady who makes the charcuteries, or whatever those are called, and I’ve been around a long, long time and have no idea what that is. And the article does not tell me. Could someone please enlighten this poor old fool?

Editor’s note: It’s a fancy word for a meat tray.

Vaccine help us

There is nothing “so-called” about this pandemic. It is worldwide. It is killing people in America faster than any other country. You better get vaccinated, and God will not save you.

Taxed enough

It seems to me that there’s enough tax being collected now. All another tax would mean is more graft for the politicians.

The 1952 "panty raid" when male students at the University of Missouri raided sororities and dorms on the Mizzou, Stephens and Columbia College campuses was better organized and more productive than todays event by a bunch of amateurs.

Just imagine if a group of hundreds of Muslims broke police lines and rushed the Capitol building because they didn’t get their way? Imagine the outrage by those who are doing so today or those who watch with quiet approval.

WrightWinger

We would handle such a rush of malcontents bent on mischief the way King Richard I handled a similar situation at Acre.

The most honest post you’ve ever made.

The National Association of Manufacturers (NAM) CEO Jay Timmons urged Vice President Pence to "seriously consider" working with President Trump's Cabinet to invoke the 25th Amendment in a statement on Wednesday

WrightWinger

Good idea, then Pence could pardon Trump. Makes perfect sense to me.

aj0201

Pence won’t pardon.

WrightWinger

Then fire him and get someone who will

aj0201

Just witnessed Trumpers pull down an American flag and put up a Trump flag.

Dignified.

WrightWinger

Don't Tread On Me!!

aj0201

Such a dignified response from Trump supporters. I’m old enough to remember where there was a promise of no protests because Trumpers would be too busy working during the week for such nonsense. Now the joint session has been evacuated?? Yeah, they’re dignified alright.

WrightWinger

Many BLM riots start with a "joint session"

aj0201

Trump supporters storming the capitol building. Clashing violently with police. So much for “#backtheblue”

WrightWinger

One female shot and killed....POLICE BRUTALITY

aj0201

The number of people on social media that said “I don’t fear a virus because God is in control” that are now saying “I fear Biden with both houses of Congress” is simply amazing. Cognitive dissonance is fun to watch. Scary that they vote and drive cars and such, but fun.

aj0201

Also interesting is that many of those same folks were just sure that God placed Trump quoting Romans 13 now believe that the forces of evil have take over.

From Sidney “The Kraken” Powell.....

(1/3) Kevin McCarthy and other House Republican Leadership — Have you made it abundantly clear to your caucus @HouseGOP that their careers are effectively OVER if they do not vote for @realDonaldTrump on and after January 6? @GOPLeader @SteveScalise @RepLizCheney @USRepGaryPalmer

(2/3) If the election falls to the House, ALL Republicans must vote in the affirmative for @realDonaldTrump. Failure to affirmatively vote yes for Trump will mean forfeiting eligibility for any and all leadership and committee spots, and ZERO fundraising assistance from the RNC,

NRCC, and all other Republican fundraising vehicles. @HouseGOP @GOPLeader

(3/3) @GOPLeader Does your caucus know that this applies to ALL House Republicans, even those from states with predominantly Democrat delegations, and single-member delegations? The bare minimum action.”

Apparently blackmail is the dignified response from Republicans bigoak promised us.

Watching the protest. There were more people at the last Rock Fest. However, there are definitely more people with a odd number of digits.

If Ms. Abrams hadn’t lost the governorship of Georgia the Democrats would not have the Senate. For once voter suppression back fired.

The work she did was impressive. I wonder, if the democrats of Georgia put up a statue of her, how long until republicans would tear it down.....?

Anyone with a modicum of American History, in other words hardly a soul reading SJNP, knows that the flu is the greatest stain on the Presidency of Wilson.

Lindsey Graham Said Republicans Would Get ‘Destroyed’ If They Nominated Donald Trump in 2016...he was correct.

aj0201

I wish that were true. Trumpism is the dominant force in the Republican Party. I’m afraid it’s here for a while. This election won’t make them rethink attaching their wagons to the Trump falling star, they’ll double down for a while. Trumpism is a toy that needs to be completely removed.

Another shooting in St. Joseph--How many think the home invaders were Republicans??

aj0201

How many think the home invaders have any political affiliation at all??

Mitt Romney met with chants of “traitor” on a plane yesterday. How many think the protestors were democrats??

Police clash with pro Trump demonstrators yesterday. How many think the protestors were democrats???

It appears that Trump has destroyed the Republican party and now responsible for the Republicans losing the House and now the Senate. Finally after January 20th, sanity will return slowly but surely. Today is historical in many ways. The foolish Senators trying to overturn the election will become irrelevant and seal the tomb of Trump.

torogem@yahoo.com

And hopefully their futures anywhere but faux news.

Remember--the mid-term elections arrive in 2 years. For those realizing they made a mistake, that is an opportunity to atone.

Fini, done, crispy, old and need turned.

Agree, in two years we can vote out the two traitors..Sam Graves and Josh Hawley!

Elections are becoming increasingly controlled by welfare recipients in our large cities. They take every handout they can from the government (taxpayers) and vote for the political party which promises "more handouts". The productive citizens must not only live with that reality, but pick up the tab.

aj0201

Welfare recipients vote? At least in large numbers? Doubt that.

bigoak

Taxed enough---Just wait until the Democrats have control. Remember, our country began as a rebellion against high taxes levied by England---exactly the same thing the Democrats want to do. Give that some thought.

Vaccine helps us---Thank you, President Trump!!

aj0201

Bigoak thinks Trump was in the White House basement lab cooking up the vaccine by himself. In reality, he cut some red tape with 0 opposition.

Content

Agreed, bigoak doesn't mention that Trump said there would be 20million vaccinated in December...reality only 2 to 4 million got the vaccine.

aj0201

Yeah the rollout has been terrible.

cry foe me

typical loony bunch still here! you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink! I will take my odds with the 1 percent risk and bypass the vaccine that does not vaccinate against covid-19. Aj please take the shot because I would miss your daily rants.

bigoak

What's that--it is another word for "meat tray", attempting to dupe the gullible into paying more money.

aj0201

Not sure you could do your own charcuterie board at home for the same price as the one from Il Lazzarone. Those are expensive cuts of meat.

bigoak

Clock is ticking---The clock is ticking alright, until an ultra-liberal agenda reopens our borders to drug traffickers, gang members, and diseases. It is ticking for people who never owned or approved of slavery to pay reparations for something to which they had no connection. It is time for those who faithfully paid off their own student loans to now pay the loans of the newly indoctrinated. The clock is ticking for America.

aj0201

The big bad communists are coming for you bigoak. Better just stay under your rock. 🤣. Lighten up. The same things were said when Obama became President. Clinton as well. The country did great under this presidents.

bigoak

Blame game---the answer is hate. Liberals hated Trump's "America First" policies. They hate that people should have control over their own destinies. They hate it when people become less dependent on government. They blamed Trump because of a self-destructive emotion called hate.

Content

No, they blame Trump because he is an inept President who also happens to be a racist bigot that should be in a mental institution outpatient program. He's a madman.

cry foe me

Liberal diarrhea of the mouth!
