Choices matter

I see people saying, “it’s your choice to wear a mask.” Yeah, it’s your choice whether you live or die. Wear the mask.

Give it a try

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo asked for the guy who’s investigating him to be fired. And don’t you know, they fired him. When I was being investigated for something once when I was younger, I didn’t know I could have just called the police station and told them to take the detective off the case.

From the earth

They keep talking about the cattle crisis, which is a crying shame. But don’t worry. They’re going to make us these little plant-based, protein hamburgers. Everything’s going to be grain based.

More dirt

I agree with “Dirty water.” Those people are 100% right. Got my sewer bill, and an increase of $19. At a time when people are out of work, have no money, in a crisis, and the people sitting down there want to raise the sewer rates? I think it is outrageous. … Come on, St. Joe, don’t make it worse for the people that live here.

Peas in a pod

I would like to know how President Donald Trump could accuse former President Barack Obama of being the worst president ever when actually Trump is the worst.

Mystery solved

To “Token mystery”: Those tokens were used back when almost everything was paid in cash. Taxes were a portion of a penny, not even a full penny. So you had four different colored tokens. Each one of those were like a half, a fifth, a quarter percent of the penny. So that’s what the tokens were used for.

Get the facts

In response to “It’s a charade”: You really should get your facts straight before you open your pie hole. This bailout has nothing to do with pension funds for teachers. If you would research, you’d find out the state of Missouri has its own pension fund, which it takes care of, which is supplied and paid for by teachers, and has nothing to do with tax dollars or anyone else helping to pay it.

Blissful ignorance

I can tell you why that person didn’t list any constitutional laws. It’s because he or she doesn’t know any of them.

Radio silence

I get emails from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and different organizations around the world. Missouri is known as a hotspot for COVID-19. I was just wondering why we don’t hear about it in the news? Why is our mayor and the governor and everything downplaying this? The CDC also says there are a lot more cases in Missouri than what is being reported.

Candidate quandary

We have a school board election coming up soon. I know nothing about the candidates or their stand on issues. I hope the paper will do an article about all of the candidates.

I find this hilariously appropriate for the hocus pocus believers!!! " A pastor and former presidential candidate in Cameroon who claimed he had cured coronavirus via laying hands has reportedly died of the infection.

Frankline Ndifor died on Saturday at the age of 39, Voice of America reported.

The authorities had to use force to enter Ndifor’s residence because his followers, who believed he was a prophet, had blocked entry as they prayed for his resurrection.

“This is a pastor that has been laying hands [on the sick] and claiming that he cures COVID-19,” one of his followers, Rigobert Che, told VOA. “If you, the person that claims that you are curing COVID-19, you are dead, what about the fellow people that were affected by the COVID-19? Now that he is dead, I do not know how the people that he was laying hands on will be healed.”

Is the new pic a better depiction of the average “Trump Girl?” B4? What’d ya think?

Original tweet..... “Breaking: Michigan sends absentee ballots to 7.7 million people ahead of Primaries and the General Election,” Trump tweeted. “This was done illegally and without authorization by a rogue Secretary of State. I will ask to hold up funding to Michigan if they want to go down this Voter Fraud path!”

Ballots. Maybe he doesn’t understand the Constitution.

Who is he to say Michigan cant have their own laws in elections?

aj0201@gmail - I have been admiring your photo and hope you don't mind. I believe you and I need to get together. It would seem we have a lot in common. I am very educated and your comments indicate you are too. Some background information is that I have two advanced degrees, one in transgender studies and the other in anti-American journalism. When that bar on Felix St opens again (you know the one), we need to meet. Meanwhile I will enjoy seeing your picture here until we can meet in real life.

Well, it’s easy to see. Watch those chunks at Trump rallies. They’re all dying to be the next affair. They’d gladly have something grabbed by him. And they all look like the pictures I chose.

It’s funny, you all are going after me for choosing a picture of an actual Trump supporter at one of his rallies. She’s one of you! 🤣🤣🤣🤣

aj0201@gmail - Honey, don't let these cruel people embarrass you. Your lifestyle is your business, not theirs. I have a copy of your actual sweet photo before you had to change it on my bedside table. And we do have so much in common. I'm not a Trump fan either. Looking forward to meeting up with you very soon!

The moron at the podium might encourage his cult members to beat me up. Like he did to others during the campaign. MAGAts are prone to violence when Trump gets them worked up.

aj--I think you would benefit from watching a real network like Fox. The quality of anchors is superior to anything I've seen on any other network. Get the truth.

aj0201@gmail.col

🤣🤣🤣🤣. You’re assuming I don’t. Of the news I watch, more than 50% comes from FOX.

A statement from a proud potato farmer....” I am hopeful that the Rhode Island - Maine Strategic Potato Reserve will remain safe, but we will fight on the beaches, we will fight along Route 95, we will fight along the clam beds. You can take our potatoes but you will never take our freeeeeeeeeeedom.”

Only seen on Fox News----legal gun owner in Las Vegas was out with his wife when they were approached by two gunmen attempting to rob them (the gunmen were smiling)---a few seconds later one gunman was dead and the other running. The trained citizen fired 10 times and all hit the target who expired on the scene. He chose not to be a victim.

Give-aways---Most of the welfare dollars (our tax dollars) are given to multi-generational welfare families who make no attempt to improve their own financial status and are content to stay in poverty and "demand" more money from the govt. These people do not even realize where the country gets its money--from hard-working taxpayers.

"Donald Trump told Wolf Blitzer in 2004: “I’ve been around for a long time and it just seems that the economy does better under the Democrats than the Republicans.”

bigoak

Bailouts----The American taxpayers have no obligations to bail-out liberal-ran states who have financial problems due to poor leadership and give-away programs which places a higher tax rate on their own citizens. Some states, such as CA, give millions to illegal aliens. They can give it away if they choose, but they should not expect the rest of the nation to bail them out for their ill-advised give-away programs.

He old woman it is the revenue from those states that keep red states afloat with federal aid.

COVID-19---Democrat state vs Republican state:

NY--19 million people Florida--22 million people

8% state income tax 0 state income tax

deeply in debt balanced budget

325,000 covid cases 40,000 covid cases

26,282 deaths 1670 deaths

NY wants the rest of us to pay off their debt.

At least 4 White House reporters have pressed @PressSec about why the President claimed mailing out applications for absentee ballots is illegal, but she has deferred to @TeamTrump.

Hey, AJ posted his photo!

Alice Lookingglass

All 300 lbs in blazing glory!

Haha!! No. Just an average “Trump Girl.” They all want to be the next Stormy, right Alice?

Alice Lookingglass

This is hilarious - aj thinks he looks like Stormy Daniels! Better enroll at Weight Watchers!

aj0201@gmail.col

You’re the Trump Girl. Got this off what I believe is your Facebook account.

Alice Lookingglass

Nope - try again! I omit posting anything remotely political on my Facebook account plus the photo that is on my account is 100% unaltered feminine and looks just like me! Keep trying as I'm sure some guy when he sees your photo will interested. Good luck!

aj0201@gmail.col

The surgeons must have done a good job, B4. Or maybe femininity is just natural for you.

aj0201@gmail.col

Oh well most women I see on Facebook who are trump supporters look like this.

at least 4 wh reporters represent fake news outlets

aj0201@gmail.col

What is an example of fake news?

WrightWinger

CNN New Day, CNN Newsroom, CNN Inside Politics, CNN Wolf, CNN The Lead with Jake Tapper, CNN The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, CNN Erin Burnett Out Front, just to name a few examples of fake news

aj0201@gmail.col

No. Those are examples of news outlets. What’s an example of fake news that they’ve shared.

WrightWinger

“He’s lying about something that we all witnessed, just yesterday, of him talking to his own Coronavirus Task Force about doing research into injecting bleach, disinfectants into people, somehow cleaning them from the inside because disinfectant works on tabletops and things like that.".....Anderson Cooper, CNN "Newsroom," April 24, 2020

bigoak

editing Barr's interview to leave out the gist of his comments is one example

aj0201@gmail.col

Hey MartyWinger, that was the essence of what he said.

WrightWinger

No, it wasn't, not even close.

aj0201@gmail.col

"And then I see the disinfectant where it knocks it out in a minute. One minute. And is there a way we can do something like that, by injection inside or almost a cleaning?

"So it'd be interesting to check that."

WrightWinger

Only the most morbidly stupid consumer of a fake news medium such as CNN would find factual Anderson Copper's comic misrepresentation of what President Trump actually said. For anyone interested in the ACTUAL event, a one minute, 30 second C-SPAN clip is available at https://www.c-span.org/video/?c4871173/president-trump-injecting-disinfectants

aj0201@gmail.col

Interesting that the issue you have is with the person reporting on this rather than the idiotic person who originally said it.

aj0201@gmail.col

“Anderson Cooper didn’t properly report about Trump suggesting injecting disinfectant.”

Sounds lie you’re worried about the right things. 🙄

aj0201@gmail.col

***sounds like

aj0201 stutters just thinking about Anderson Cooper

aj0201@gmail.col

Peas in a pod...I would like to know what specific crime Trump is accusing Obama and or members of his administration of committing? Nobody seems to be able to point that out. They just echo “OBAMAGATE!” with no clue as to which crime it is. So...would someone please direct me to the federal code that Obama is said to be in violation?

bigoak

The Obama WH appears to have participated in the false investigation of Trump and gave the "go ahead" to investigate a private citizen (Flynn) illegally. More to come with the Durham report.

aj0201@gmail.col

Ummm, hasn’t Trump said during both the russia and Ukraine investigations that a President can investigate who he wants? Doesn’t he say that he has “Article II” that “allows (him) to do whatever (he) wants?” And again, what law did Obama break? You all seem so sure that one was broken. Which one?

bigoak

Durham is investigating. We will see what he finds.

aj0201@gmail.col

Uhhh, what were you saying about how Barr’s comments are edited?

"The legal tactic has been to gin up allegations of criminality by one's political opponents based on the flimsiest of legal theories," Barr said. "This is not good for political life, and it's not good for the criminal justice system. And as long as I'm attorney general, the criminal justice system will not be used for partisan political ends."

Barr dismissed the idea that U.S. Attorney John Durham, who is overseeing the review of the FBI inquiry, would investigate Obama or Biden, although he declined to say whom Durham is targeting.

"As to President Obama and Vice President Biden, whatever their level of involvement, based on the information I have today, I don't expect Mr. Durham's work will lead to a criminal investigation of either man," Barr said. "Our concern over potential criminality is focused on others."
