Speak Out

Today's Printed Speak Out

** Hate crimes

I've been reading in the paper that all these Confederate monuments are being defaced and they're writing, "Black lives matter." These are hate crimes. I mean, think about it. If you were doing that to Martin Luther King's memorials, wouldn't that be a hate crime? These are hate crimes, and they need to prosecute, find these people, put them in jail for hate crimes. Otherwise, the whole hate crime lie is just a bunch of hypocrisy. One-sided.

** Supreme frustration

I see where our U.S. Supreme Court has once again ruled against the will of the American people and voted that the Obamacare is just wonderful. I am so sick of this Supreme Court, of any Supreme Court. Why do eight people get to say -- because half of them are liberal and half of them are conservative, they don't go by the law. You know they are going by their politics. And anybody who thinks they are not biased is crazy. And I wish we could do away with the Supreme Court and let the people decide for our country.

** Double standards

In typical Clinton style, Hillary stated that the Confederate flag should not be flown anywhere, although she and her husband celebrated Confederate Flag Day every year while they governed Arkansas. Personally, I don't care if the flag is flown or not. What bothers me is that the mainstream media won't report Hillary's double standards. The Clintons and Obamas can lie and deceive, because they know the media won't hold them accountable.

** Tournaments

I cannot believe it. The third Saturday in a row that a person can't get a tee time at the Jaycees Golf Course, because of tournaments. Come on, city, you can do better than that.

Didn't take long. By next year this time the SCOTUS will approve polygamist marriages....why not they have rights too.

Looks like the JV USA negotiating team led by that bad boy biker Kerry has won an extension of a week in the talks with Iran to once again do nothing.

Sorry, Wheels. If he's going to mess with the bull, he has to expect to get the horns. :-)

I know the make up of the US Supreme court and that has no bearing of their ages and their inability to interpret the Constitution because of age. The Supreme Court appointments should not be until death do we part! As to same sex marriage being "popular" as your defense, well when did something being "popular" come into play when a US Supreme court decision is made. Liberal have such lame reasoning sometimes and the next thing in their playbook is we are doing it for our kids!
