Different rules

The president is tested every day. Every single person he comes in contact with also is being tested. If any of them tests positive for COVID-19, they are immediately quarantined and their contacts are tested. See? He does understand how to stop the virus. He just doesn’t give a darn about us.

History of violence

It shows a big lack of education when you stand on a public forum and say that all conservative protesters carry swastikas and guns. While it’s true there are a few armed protesters, please point out to me one instance where someone has been shot at a protest. On the other hand, ANTIFA has been known to attack people violently.

Lightning strikes

School-age children have less than 1 in 1 million chance of dying from this virus. On the other hand, they have a 1 in 700,000 chance of dying from a lightning strike. And yet, people want to keep the school closed. You gotta be kidding me.

Question of cost

I appreciated the article on driver’s ed sponsored by the St. Joe Safety Council. However, it would have been nice if the News-Press would have showed what they charge for this so we would know if it’s something we could plan for.

Editor’s note: According to the Safety Council’s website, the cost is $295 per student.

Holy cow

Front page news: ‘Bars to reopen.’ Well, churches sure as heck better be reopened, and not only that, more than a couple of the City Council members should have recused themselves from that vote secondary to conflict of interest. If they didn’t, they are in violation.

Hard world

I’m a cow-calf operator and I take exception to Sen. Josh Hawley’s deal here where he said you got cow-calf operators ready to go to market but nobody will buy them. Them boys will buy them, they just won’t pay you nothing for them. There’s nothing to do about that. It’s called the world, and it’s a hard one.

Tablet return

I’m curious, how many of those $1,000 tablets have been returned by students to the school district? What happens when students fail to return their tablets? That’s an expensive item. I hope the school district is being responsible in this time of money-tightening everywhere else.

Phantom crowds

To the person who called in about Walmart being so crowded that they’re “standing on top of one another,” I have been to Walmart the last two weeks — on different days — and there is no such crowd. They are not standing on top of one another; they are respecting each other and that’s the way it should be. So wherever you are going, it must not be in St. Joe.

AG Barr appears to pour cold water on #ObamaGate - “As to President Obama and Vice President Biden... based on the information I have today I don’t believe Mr. Durham’s work will lead to a criminal investigation of either man.”

aj0201@gmail.col

Also remember this; Trump decided to run for President to tear down everything Obama did or stood for because he got his feelings hurt at the 2011 Correspondents Dinner.

aj0201@gmail.col

OBAMAGATE is nothing more than an attempt to deflect and obfuscate the inept response to the Covid19 pandemic. Remember this, if Obamagate is real now, it was real in 2017. Amazingly it never reached the Presidents radar until Obama offered his opinion about how poorly Trump has handled the pandemic in the US.

The pandemic is perplexing. On one hand, lock everything down businesses fail, jobs lost, people suffer, etc. On the other, go about life as usual and come what may- people will suffer and die. There's no perfect solution, no vaccine, no instant cure. Scientists are frantically trying to solve the problem, but how long will it take ? Nobody knows. The middle ground is as It has become: limit occupancy, test as much as possible, wear masks, stay away from others etc and go on with living your life as normally as possible. Many have died even with lockdowns, many more will die, no cure is at hand. Be cautious, be safe, protect yourself and your family as best you can. Open your businesses, obtain what income you can, and hope for the best. The virus is not going away soon, get used to that. But without businesses, recreation, education etc, what will your life really be? It's been three months, It's time to move forward and enjoy your new form of living., no matter what this new era of life will entail.

Different rules >>> Did you sign up and drive thru to obtain your free virus test at Mosaic on Saturday OR did you not attend because you just wanted to complain on this forum ? Over 800 got tested, so explain your "different rules", or shut up.

Hard world---(cattle farmers)--I would add to the caller's comments that livestock is different from other produce. They consume costly food, and the larger they get, the more they eat. When they are at the acceptable weight (what the market wants) they have to be sold, otherwise they become to costly to feed and become a financial liability.

aj0201@gmail.col

It’s a good time to know how to butcher animals. I butchered a hog yesterday. Local producer was thrilled to have a buyer.

zzsnot303@gmail.com

Many thanks, I appreciate your patronage aj

grandpadude1945@gmail.com

Give aj credit he didn't insult the President. The bigger question is can he continue for just one day

zzsnot303@gmail.com

we all knew it was just a matter of minutes.. mr. anti-everything simply can't resist bashing our President.. that's all he's got

EX-President Obama was shooting off his mouth yesterday about the handling of the virus. The only 2 ex-presidents I remember who refused to leave the public spotlight after leaving office is Bill Clinton and Barrack Obama. Both have highly (over) inflated egos.

aj0201@gmail.col

They have over inflated egos? And Trump is humble right?

zzsnot303@gmail.com

ex-presidents tend to run their mouths near election time, for the "good of the party"

zzsnot303@gmail.com

ex-NEVER-president Hillary runs her mouth every time she starts feeling lonely cos she isn't getting attention...

James Bond1

Excellent observation...………..Hillary is indeed an "ex-NEVER"...……...whoever got that picture of her seated on the stool should get her a little attention. The caption said "She is where she belongs"

James Bond1

Both of them have had some things found out about them...…...now they are trying to cover up. Since they have both had numerous dishonest (criminal) things identified, you would think they would be happy to not have been sent to jail yet.

aj0201@gmail.col

Wrong.

Rhodes Scholar, “ Noble” Peace Prize, Bin Laden killer lost 2 Americans during the Ebola Crisis & Trump lied & 90,000 Died

extremely OLD non-news

Dilly

By the way conservatives are always always accusing progressives and liberals of hating t rump. As a proud Democratic Socialist I can only speak for my self because Liberals do not suffer from mob mentality like Connie's

bigoak

Surely you jest! So you hate Trump. I doubt that he cares in the least. But remember, hate harms the hater much more than the object of their hate. It becomes an obsession (obviously) which consumes one's thoughts and alienates relatives and friends.

James Bond1

"mentality"...………...hummmmm. Well, at least they suffer.

Dilly

HISTORY OF VIOLENCE. How many people have Antifa Killed in counter demonstrations? Computer says NONE. How many people did your racist white supremacist kill at Charlottesville? Why that would be one. An innocent peaceful young lady demonstrator killed by a car driven by a guy that was part of a fascist hate group that t rump said had some were good people. Unlike the hateful racist right that hate people for their race, Antifa does not hate the racist they hate the racism. Almost religious in nature.

bigoak

Antifa has repeatedly assaulted conservative demonstrators. They have bloodied faces and destroyed property. No one on the conservative side approves of the action in Charlottesville. But calling conservatives names based on the action of one person is not reasonable.

aj0201@gmail.col

All those Trump supporting alt right guys in Charlottesville chanting “Jews will not replace us” were disgusted by the murder of that woman by one of their own, huh?

James Bond1

aj will not replace anyone...………….wheeeeeeeeeee…………………..!

zzsnot303@gmail.com

LMAO... awesome comment James Bond

Dilly

So you are saying racist white nationalist Fascists are not , CONSERVATIVES? If that is so then why to a man they support t rump and declared his Electoral College victory a victory for them?

aj0201@gmail.col

Lightening Strikes....seems to me they don’t allow recess outdoors if there’s lightening close by. They let them out when the thunderstorm “miraculously goes away” in the “April heat.”

bigoak

You describe a rare incident compared to a virus. But as a parent, and now grandparent, I understand the reluctance to send the kids to school. But when I was a child, parents worried greatly about polio but still sent the kids to school. It was a relief when the polio vaccine was available.

aj0201@gmail.col

We know a lot more about science than we did in 1955, let alone the years earlier. And ask a polio survivor if they think schools should be open. Especially for a virus that is far more infectious than polio was. Polio peaked in 1952 with a whopping 60,000 cases and 3,000 deaths. Read up on how in 1916, during a summer outbreak, how going to various venues was not permitted and how the local board of health would take children away from their parents to quarantine hospitals. Imagine stay at home orders when there was no air conditioning, tv and WiFi.
