Boys to men

“Mother Boys.” You crack me up. You obviously aren’t watching ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter, with all those young kids out there. Those are the “boys.” The Proud Boys are men. They’re out there fighting for our Constitution, they’re not terrorizing people, they’re there to help. On the other hand, the Democrats, ANTIFA, BLM — those groups are terrorists. They’re burning places down, they’re killing people. Man, you guys are just so backward.

Everything falls

This guy on the economy is out of his mind. Politicians do make a difference, especially this election. You vote for Biden, and watch everything fall. He’s going to take everything from everybody. He’s going to put restrictions on stuff, get rid of gas engines, get rid of all this stuff that’s going to hurt us, the little people.

OK to hate

I’d like to answer a question in It’s your call. The person asked if Malcolm X’s statues would be taken down. The answer is no. Because it’s OK to hate a white man, but it’s not ok to hate a Black man.

Yes, it does

In your editorial, you discussed a representative tweeting after Trump’s COVID diagnosis “it looks like someone should have been more consistent with wearing a mask.” And then you say, yes perhaps, but it doesn’t really help in addressing the issue of a response to the coronavirus. Yes it does. How many times do we have to hear from medical experts that wearing a mask is very important to help not spread the virus?

A simple plan

Why can’t SJSD just do like some cities are doing? All of the students go virtual. Those that require daycare or extra assistance on their classes report to satellite locations, like the high schools, that have lots of space and someone is there to provide additional help with virtual learning. Extra activities might be offered. They could even fix up the gyms at one of these locations with an air system like Genesis Health Club and everyone would be safer.

Signs of trouble

There’s a lady running on the Democrat ticket for state representative, and she needs to know that she cannot put her yard signs on state, county or city property, nor can she put them on private property without the owners’ permission.

Trump in question

If Donald Trump’s health deteriorates and he is unable to run for reelection, what happens to the ballots already mailed in? Are they null and void? Are the votes canceled? Are they sent back to the voter so they can vote again? Does Pence replace Trump on the ballot, and does he automatically receive the votes previously cast for Trump? Just a little clarification would be great.

Covita Peron Trump drops an “F” bomb on Rush Limbaugh. Evangelicals everywhere cheer.

Trump in question.. This has never happened before. They don't have a clue as to what to do. But one thing is for sure if the Government is involved it will be messed up.

jdw64485

It's not okay to hate anyone. No matter the skin or lifestyle. I sure don't agree with a lot of thungs some people are doing. The way some live. But I don't hate them.

aj0201@gmail.col

Imagine 6 American Muslims arrested for a plot to "overthrow the government and kidnap a governor" and not using the word "terrorism" to describe it.

We can all be proud of President Trump and his Justice Dept. for thwarting the militant group's evil plans without loss of life. Obama, by contrast, had his FBI ambush and murder an American citizen for his participation in a peaceful protest endangering no one.

aj0201@gmail.col

Lavoy Finicum was a criminal who should have complied with police orders. Had he complied, he would be alive today. It is what it is.

WakeUpUSA

You weren't there, Aj. Eyewitness accounts differ from your version of the events. You only tow the party line, because it suits your purposes. [huh]

WrightWinger

American citizen Finicum at the most could have been charged with a non-violent trespass. He was on his way to the Oregon sheriff's office to peacefully surrender, a fact everyone in local and state law enforcement was aware of. But, NO!!!, the Obama FBI hit squad set up an ambush to halt the vehicle and started firing on it before it stopped, endangering Finicum's innocent wife and child. Finicum exited the vehicle, never drew his weapon, offered no resistance, was shot twice in the back with a shotgun, went down and was administered another gunshot to his back causing his death. This, beyond any reasonable doubt, was a state execution without trial and someone high up in the federal government had to have ordered it done. If not Obama, who?

aj0201@gmail.col

No whitewinger. That’s not what happened. Lavoy was trespassing. He was stopped by state police with Ryan Bundy, Shawna Cox, and Victoria Sharp in his vehicle. He initially stopped but then drove away saying “you’re gonna have to put a bulletin through me...”. Prior to him driving away, three others in his convoy, including Ammon Bundy were peacefully arrested. They complied. Lavoy then drives at a high rate of speed and ends up trying to avoid spike strips and drives into the snow. He then exits the vehicle and attempts to get away from police and FBI, eventually reaching for a gun and getting shot. His “wife and child” were nowhere near this incident.

He didn’t comply and he got shot. That’s the standard now, isn’t it?

aj0201@gmail.col

Eyewitness accounts? It was all caught on tape by a person in his truck. That criminal ran from the cops and got shot reaching for a gun. The world is better off with him out. Good riddance.

zzsnot303@gmail.com

Lavoy Finicum was a criminal , but yet George Floyd was not., according to AJ...

aj0201@gmail.col

And of course these guys wouldn’t face harm from Trump. Home grown white terrorists will find safe haven in the Trump DOJ. They’re not black and they love him. They’re safe as kittens.

WrightWinger

Everything falls.....As near as we can tell the Biden/Harris ticket is still in favor of the New Green Deal, just not all of it, whatever that means. A clue could be what is happening in California when temperatures rise a bit above normal and the state goes dark for lack of electrical power generation. Yet the enviro-wackos proceed with legislation eliminating ALL fossil fuel-powered vehicles in a few years. What is to replace the gasoline and diesel now "driving" the California economy? We don't know, but what we DO know is that even if every square inch of the state were to be covered with arrays of solar panels and windmills not enough energy would be produced to supply just the transportation power needs of LA/Orange County let alone all the other power requirements for the state. That is what a vote for Biden/Harris would mean for all of us, an economic blackout.

abortion stops a beating heart. End of story.

Boys to men---All I have seen from BLM and Antifa is violence. They have burned, they have looted, they have attacked police officers, they have defaced both public and private property and yell inane "slogans" through loudspeakers. They are incredibly dumb, violent, and uncivilized.

bigoak

Massachusetts---A former work colleague and friend is a life-long resident of Massachusetts. He is conservative. He is frustrated by the people in Massachusetts who are anti-Trump. They can give no evidence of why or how Trump is bad, they just think it. He refers to liberals as non-thinkers.

bigoak

Everything falls---Talking to a couple of wealthy investors last night, I learned that they have pulled from the stock market until after the election based on the possibility that Biden will win. They have moved their money into more secure financial vehicles. Remember voters, your 401k is greatly affected by who is in the White House. Remember the fabulous growth in the stock market following Trump's election? Record highs after record highs--and 401k plans grew rapidly--you should be careful who you vote for on Nov. 3rd/

aj0201@gmail.col

They’re idiots. The market gained a greater percentage and was more stable during the last time Biden was in office.

aj0201@gmail.col

They, assuming they really exist, are proof about the nature of the stock market. It’s all psychology. They sell based on what? An election? Not the performance of the business. Not based on disruption to specific market conditions. But because of who gets elected. They’re dumb.

bigoak

Yes it does--masks are minimally effective. The virus germ is extremely minute, invisible to the human eye, and can easily penetrate any microscopically opening, especially when a person breathes in. or especially when they exhale or sneeze. Any protection is better than none, but the masks are far from being totally effective. We are talking about microscopic organisms, folks.

WakeUpUSA

Wearing a mask to protect others from CoVid is like wearing a diaper to protect others from faa*rts... [whistling]

aj0201@gmail.col

Only to someone who probably hasn’t graduated past diapers. Basic science, dingbat.

bigoak

OK to hate--aj failed to understand that you were simply referring to the statue of any black man--Malcolm X was just an example. The Democrats have made it clear which side of the fence they are on---anyone they can bribe with the promise of "goodies".

aj0201@gmail.col

So the specific mention of Malcom X was really a general reference to all blacks? Are you saying that all blacks that have a statue hate whites? Please explain how I missed this due to the clear language of both callers.

bigoak

Trump in question--Caller, if you watch the proper news media you would know that Trump has been released to a normal work week beginning next Monday. Only CNN and MSNBC (fake news outlets) are questioning Trump's health. You need to watch "real" news.

bigoak

Durham Report---is moving along nicely. Of course, if you watch CNN or MSNBC you are probably unaware of that fact. There is going to be a day of reckoning for some prominent Democrats.

aj0201@gmail.col

Moving along so well that a top aide dropped out a month ago citing political pressure to produce a report before the work is done. At this point, unless there is a recording of Biden talking with Putin about framing Trump, it won’t change how people are going to vote at all. And, neither Obama nor Hillary are ever going to jail. Such a disappointment for Trumpers.

zzsnot303@gmail.com

we still have hope that Hillary gets some jail time lol

aj0201@gmail.col

Oh, and are you ready/able/willing to discuss the absurdity of your notion that doctors are upset at socialized medicine and how they have to do so much paperwork etc etc?

bigoak

And to whom are you directing this question? There is no moderator on this forum. You sound like Kamala.

bigoak

Not sure at whom you are whining, but if it is me, my doctors, and some who are friends tell me (outside of their professional lives) that they dislike the onerous regulations and the restrictions on treatment plans. They ALL say that they have less time to be with patients and that ACA officials push the use of "physician assistants" and "nurse practitioners". They say that the ACA is effectively restricting their ability to properly treat patients. Meanwhile, welfare folks only go the much more expensive (tax dollars) emergency rooms for things like hangnails.

aj0201@gmail.col

What you and your imaginary doctor friends don’t seem to grasp is that the regulations aren’t from the government but from the insurance companies. The ACA was an attempt to get everyone healthcare using private insurance. The government hasn’t really gotten involved in the administration of these private companies. As someone who bills insurance companies, it’s my contention that ACA marketplace insurance has become onerous due to them making it so. They are doing this to be able to point to ACA and say “it isn’t working.” But they’re making it that way. Not the government. Anyway, ACA is all about private insurance, not socialized. Notice, your imaginary doctor friends don’t work for the government.

Several years ago, Missouri decided to “privatize” Medicaid. I used to take Medicaid. Three different companies now administer Medicaid in Missouri and it’s a nightmare. Under Medicaid, I would establish medical necessity and apply for preauthorization to see someone. Almost without fail, those were authorized and I’d start seeing the client. As long as I could demonstrate medical necessity, reauthorize was a snap. When the companies took over, they said they would get rid of the preauth system. Sounded good. But now the deny claims all the time. Sometimes, maybe most times, just because. When they do cite a clinical reason for denial, that decision is made by someone who has no clinical training. It’s an absolute mess. Lots of providers are no longer taking Medicaid clients because of this.

In the last few months, I decided to take in clients with Medicare. A wise mentor advised me to not credential with Advantage plans, as all those same nightmares exist. I see clients with standard Medicare and billing is the easiest thing I do. Only takes a couple of minutes per client and two weeks later I get paid. BCBS was never even close to being as efficient. Medicaid was, when it was administered by the state. It’s so efficient that I do my own billing. If I went back to accepting all the private insurance, I’d have to employ someone to handle billing. And again, Medicare isn’t really “socialized healthcare.” I don’t work for the government.

Sorry, but your “friends” frustration is ill placed if they’re blaming the government for the increase in their work. That’s on the private health insurance companies.

aj0201@gmail.col

Oh, and much like you question “Ms Hedges” credentials fo lecture, we’re still waiting on what your credentials are to do the same?

bigoak

To whom are you directing this question. That would be helpful.

aj0201@gmail.col

Well dingbat, the only person who brought her up yesterday and questioned credentials was you......

bigoak

"credentials" are of little value in an "opinion" forum. Vladimir Putin has "credentials".

aj0201@gmail.col

Bigoak, again, thank you for proving that the ballots that have been found in the trash are attempts to affect democrat voters. Your logic is perfect.

munchman

No the just establish whether a person knows what they are talking about or ar all full of feces like yourself.

aj0201@gmail.col

Yes it does....the only expert in their world is Covita Peron.

aj0201@gmail.col

Some people should read about Malcolm X before commenting. His autobiography, written by Alex Haley of “Roots” fame, is a quick read and will give you insight to how Malcolm X thought about whites. Read the whole book.
