Searching for progress

I’m dying to sit down and ask the City Council and the mayor what their definition of “progress” is. Because this ideology that they have about “cleaning up St. Joe,” they’re doing a terrible job of it. This is a dirty, nasty town. I’ve never seen a town go backward and they call it “progress.”

Who’s the liar?

I know Democrats and liberals think we don’t have any information about the past, but when they say it’s illegal and unconstitutional to put Amy Barrett on the Supreme Court, that is absolutely false. Just like all the other falsehoods they’ve been spreading. Let’s look at the facts and see who the liar is in this case.

No sympathy

I’m calling about the article in The Weekender about the pregnant woman in Kansas City who was arrested. She was violating the law, she was trespassing and she was resisting arrest. She was apparently well along in her third trimester, so what was she doing out at 11:30 at night with a large group of people who were breaking the law out at 36th and Prospect? I’m sorry, I have no sympathy for her, and I worry about the baby.

Big numbers

Everybody is still crying because of how many millions have died of COVID, but people need to realize that if I die in a car crash and I have COVID in my system, they’d count it as a COVID death. These numbers are blown up bigger than they need to be.

Who’s in charge?

Someone in “It’s your call” said that the News-Press is getting more liberal. Now I find out you’re bound to the Associated Press’s idea of what you should do. I didn’t know they ran your paper.

An insult

I appreciate one of the Missouri gubernatorial candidate’s opinion about Amendment 3. It was Jerome Bauer. He said, “To overturn Amendment 3 before it’s even been implemented is an insult to the voters.”

Pack of lies

I see the Democrats are now trying to change the meaning of “packing the court.” Now they’re trying to say “packing the court” is putting your people in. That is not right. That is always done. Packing the court is when you change the number of justices so you can get them to rule the way you want.

Change it

I picked up a Sunday paper and it wound up being The Weekender now. I want it changed back.

Keep it

I thought those were some pretty interesting stories and features in The Weekender.

Fantastic job

It is irrational to think that Obama and Biden didn’t do a fantastic job. They pulled us out of Bush’s terrible financial crisis, created four times more jobs and cut unemployment by 60%. Our country was not divided as it has been under President Trump.

Trump brags about having 14 doctors available to him when he wasn’t feeling well.

The three judge panel that made this ruling were all Trump appointees. Imagine that.

Fascists love voter suppression.

Trump campaign uses Dr Fauci’s words as an endorsement. Words taken out of context and without consent to be used as an endorsement. Fauci doesn’t endorse Plump.

Trump campaign uses Gen. Milley’s photo for an ad without his consent and in violation of DOD regulations about military appearing in uniform in political ads of endorsement.

Says the King of taking others words out of context... [beam][lol][whistling][tongue_smile]

Hahahahaha!

nothing ever changes....

.. no big deal to folks with JUST a little common sense

aj0201@gmail.col

It is a big deal for the military. It’s against regulations and would get any junior officer or enlisted man in trouble. Likely nobody goes after the CJCS but that doesn’t make it right, especially for the “law and order” candidate. He doesn’t care about law and order.

eye4neyealways

darn, I guess AJ should go to DC and set 'em straight huh...NO BIG DEAL

Yes I agree St.Joe needs some deep cleaning. But I don't think it's all the city leaders responsibility. Most of it falls back on the property owns. If they own rental property then it's their responsibility to be sure the renter follows the rental contact in regards to the up keep. Of the property. If this is not done the city should step in with stiffer penalties.

100 percent correct jdw !!!

Also remember that Trump touted Walter Reed, 100% government funded, as being a great hospital where he received world class healthcare. The very definition of “socialized medicine.” The billionaire didn’t pay a copayment. He won’t see a bill in 6 weeks.

Who's the liar (or is it just onset senility)....Joe Biden yesterday at campaign event: "My name’s Joe Biden. I’m a Democratic candidate for the United States Senate." Cmon, man, are you on drugs?

aj0201@gmail.col

Pack of lies...agreed. But court packing isn’t new. John Adams did it. So did Jefferson.

aj0201@gmail.col

Big numbers...that isn’t true and the editor should’ve pointed that out.

aj0201@gmail.col

Who’s the liar....which democrats are saying that? I’ve never heard that. The issue isn’t about the Constitution but about the fact it’s an election year. The liar appears to be the caller.

WrightWinger

"The fact" that 2020 is an election year is only a Democrat talking point, not an "issue" of Constitutionality. Article II section 2 of the Constitution states that the Presidents "shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint ... Judges of the Supreme Court..." That is what is being followed today with President Trump's nomination of Judge Amy Barrett, there is no "issue."

aj0201@gmail.col

We should ask Merrick Garland if there is an issue. The issue is hypocrisy. You know it as well as I. Your plain text reading of the Constitution, which I agree with, seemingly didn’t apply when Obama nominated Garland. The Senate, at the direction of Moscow Mitch, decided its job was to let the American people have their voice in an election year first. Lindsey Graham has said “I want you to use my words against me. If there’s a Republican president in 2016 and a vacancy occurs in the last year of the first term, you can say Lindsey Graham said let’s let the next president, whoever it might be, make that nomination.”

WrightWinger

It's Washington, D.C. and appears "hypocrisy" is going on. Round up the usual suspects. 🕵️‍♂️🕵️‍

aj0201@gmail.col

Then the current crop of republicans wouldn’t have jobs.

WrightWinger

That's why we have elections, to decide which brand of hypocrisy we least abhor

eye4neyealways

Merrick Garland has no standing in the current situation.. neither does O-BUMmer

aj0201@gmail.col

Who is claiming he has “standing?” It just illustrates the hypocrisy of the current so called Republicans.

eye4neyealways

with all the animosity from Democrats over the past 4 years, I'd say confirm Amy Barrett post haste !!!!

WrightWinger

The Senate Judiciary Committee will vote favorably this Thursday to forward Judge Barrett's nomination to the full Senate. After the customary one week layover, the Senate could vote for her confirmation the week of October 26.

aj0201@gmail.col

Should Biden win and get the Senate, not a done deal, this will be the reason they decide to pack the court. Moronic GOP don’t understand the term “elections have consequences” when it applies to democrats.

WrightWinger

At the worst, Mitch will still have a 51-vote majority. Lose CO and AZ, pickup AL and ME is tossup

eye4neyealways

AGREED .. there is NO issue, different time in history..

eye4neyealways

Judge Amy Barrett very effectively swatted the Democrat's questioning today...

I had a section of paper it looked like ink had ran down the page. Pretty much unreadable. And another section the ink was so pale you could make it out..
