Speak Out

Today's Printed Speak Out

Watch reindeer

Wanted: Ten to 15 good men to help guard Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer while Santa is making his rounds on Christmas Eve. We have a man here in Cape who likes to gather his trophies. Contact: We Care.

Ferguson parents

Yes, I just read an article in another magazine about how they're going after the juveniles up there in Ferguson and going to charge the parents. Remember, we got the same thing here? If you miss school, the parents can be picked up for the kids missing school and be fined.

Bus ran light

This is Thursday morning, Dec. 11. I just watched a Cape Girardeau city school bus completely run a red light. It was red before he entered it. Really? You're in charge of those young lives, and you're going to run a red light? Somebody is responsible for these people.

Police comment

I am so glad to hear in today's paper, which is Thursday, the 11th, "Officer was right." I feel the exact same way. He was breaking the law. The officer was doing his duty. You know, we in this country, if we want good police officers on our streets and to go to school to be in law enforcement, we must support them. I don't feel he really did anything wrong. He was doing his duty and his job. Thank you for whoever commented.

Ferguson review

Yes, I've noticed there's no talk about rebuilding Ferguson. So I think someone ought to come up with a story: "Ferguson, a year later."

Coat return

Would the person who picked up the wrong blue raincoat at the Saint Francis volunteer breakfast please return it to the volunteer office? Your coat is there, and I need my coat and my gloves.

Caller ID

If you are calling and you really want to talk to us, take "private caller," "unknown caller," "Cape Girardeau," or the name of any city or state off the screen. If you can't tell us who you are, we do not answer our phone. We have been fooled into doing it, and it's some bunch of bull from people we don't want to talk to about things we don't want or answer questions that is none of their concern. Why do you have to hide who you are? We have many friends who are doing the same thing. So save your dialing fingers.

Government shutdown

Yeah, I don't know why government shut down is so bad of an idea. Well, the bad thing was the last time it shut down they closed the veterans memorial, where a lot of those people probably would never get a chance to see it and White House tours. But don't worry. You'll still get your food stamps and checks.

Limbaugh column

I just finished read David Limbaugh's article in the Sunday paper. And everybody should read this article to get some insight into the way our country is being run and what is being done to it and how we are being abused by our elected officials.

News coverage

If you'd take the TV cameras and reporters away from protest sites, you'd be amazed at how the protests would decline significantly.

Albino deer

I read in the news about a rare white rhino dying in a zoo. It died of old age. Very rare species. I couldn't help thinking about the albino buck that died. I know that's not a separate species. But we're not going to forget that any time soon, what was done to our community through the selfishness of one person, trying to cast a pall over certain aspects of the season.

History in football

In the Nov. 23 paper, the Out of the Past for 11-27-1939, it was stated that the score of 53-0 was the largest score ever made Central since the two teams played together since 1912. However, the 1942 Central team defeated Jackson by 70-0 at Jackson on Thanksgiving Day in that year. I know this to be true, as I played on the 1942 team.

The Right to assemble and protest has been the law from the get-go .

The Right to use this as a reason to loot and riot using the excuse as protesting is not .

Many people came from all or America to ruin this protest

In my opinion , this would include Al Charlatan and Messie Jackson , Jr.

It's not good when people accept this as the status quo .

Breaking out store windows and burning buildings is not peaceful protesting. Neither is turning over or burning police cars, stopping traffic on a major 4 lane highway and I could go on and on regarding what is not peaceful protest.

Maybe some of you did not view the President speaking in the right half of your TV screens while a crew of able bodied hoodlums were trying to overturn a police car in the left hand side of the screen a couple of weeks back. Those are way too often your "peaceful protestors".

Tribune, the eggnog thing is getting a little stale. I suggest something new...

Isn't it interesting how some put words (that were never typed) in other's comments.

Learn the difference. Peaceful protest is part of what the USA has been founded on. Criminals are just that, criminals... whether they are protesting or not, they deserve the full extent of the law.

Some of you want to argue, when there is no argument to be had. Lay off the egg nog and find a new hobby.

This is where the Ferguson protests are heading , peaceful or not


NY cop killer had long criminal history

NEW YORK (AP) - The gunman who fatally ambushed two New York City police officers in their squad car had a long criminal record, a hatred for police and the government and an apparent history of mental instability that included an attempt to hang himself a year ago, authorities said Sunday.
