Speak Out

Today's Printed Speak Out

** No monument

I am so angry because of this Brown monument memorial. I can understand the family wanting something. But what I can't understand is that they plan to fix something, but nothing, nothing is ever mentioned about the boy doing a holdup, or getting charged, or nothing from the store that he was taking and stealing. He wasn't just a little kid. But, yet, this policeman and everyone else ... It's being pushed on us. And I do not like it. I would like to have things mentioned about what he did before he was arrested.

That's rich

I don't know who thinks that if you're making $250,000 a year you're rich. Try $300,000 or more, in my opinion. Our family has made $250,000. It doesn't take into account you might have handicapped children, or children still at home, adult children. I just would ask the people out there to realize that $250,000 is not rich. We do not go to the Bahamas on vacation. We don't go to Europe in recent years, certainly not in the last 10 years. We just don't go anywhere, to be honest. Well, we have taken one trip, now that I think about it. But it was within the United States. But the point is, you're not rich if you're making $250,000. So, if politicians want to act like you're rich, try $300,000 and up.

Non-union cars

Yes, for the American people, it's going to be great if you see how the union cars are being made. They're having all these recalls. You wait until the non-union cars start being made, and see what the taxpayers will pay for.

you want us to feel sorry for you because you only make 250,000 a year and not 300,000. you let 50,000 determine whether you are considered rich or not. You really do have it all wrong. Rich can be considered in many different ways and not in just money.

And if you think for one minute the average person is going to have pity for you because you only make 250k per year, you don't even know the meaning of rich.

And if you think you have it that bad, then trade income with a person who does not make nearly what you do, and they have extended family members, loved ones, grown children, mortgage or rent payments to try and take care care of just like you do on much less than you do.

And if you are struggling with an income of 250k per year then something is really wrong with your math and finances. You need help with a money manager. Talk about reality please.

I believe there would be lines of people out here who would trade what they nake a year for your 250,000k per year for only 1 year. think about it and thank God for what you have now.

Do you really know how you sound when you complain about only making 250,000 per year and you don't agree with your classification and not being able to take a vacation. What world are you living in?

gki .....you got the president's statement all wrong, but I am not surprised. When he said you did not do it by your self, he meant it took someone somewhere o help you build your business.

How did you get the ground cleared for the building, how did you get the trees cleared for the ground how did you get the electricity for the electrical lines running to your building, how did you get the banks to loan you the money to open up your business. How did you get the sidewalks in front of your business.

There are so many people who helped you build your business. So you did not build everything and do it all by yourself. That's what he meant. But so many of you took his statement the wrong way. All you heard was what you wanted to hear, but the president told the truth...don't get it twisted.
