Speak Out

Today's Printed Speak Out


If Republicans wonder who is responsible for the ride of Donald Trump, all they have to do is take a good, hard look in the mirror.

Third leg

I'm telling you Republican Trump bashers to tread lightly in your criticism of The Donald or he'll run as a third-party candidate and destroy any opportunity you have to regain the White House.

Dragoni's hope

Ironically, just at the time I was finishing up reading Jack Dragoni's denunciation of Donald Trump with his, "By the time this column is published, hopefully, Trump's run for president will just be a bad memory," I turned on the TV and, guess what? Cable channels were engaged in saturated coverage of The Donald, landing in Larrdo, Texas, to "inspect" border security. Mr. Dragoni's hope for Donald's political demise may be deferred for a while, a long while.


Another $75,000 for Ken Dobbins? People like Jay Knudtson perpetuate the myth of the indispensable CEO as a way to soak taxpayers and stockholders. As General Degaulle once said, "The graveyard is full of indispensable men."


According to Investor's Daily, Medicaid expansion is far exceeding what was anticipated and is leading us in the direction of a single-payer system. In other words, Medicare for all. Hallelujah!

More Dobbins

Dr. Ken Dobbins did such a great job as SEMO President I have no problem with him remaining as de facto president.

Where is the Cardinal offense?-- Posted by G. H. on Thu, Jul 30, 2015, at 9:36 AM

G.H.: Too hot to play ball....BTW, Lackey's ERA is a low 1.61.

Sad loss on this one, Rick. Lackey pitched a very good game and should have got a win. Where is the Cardinal offense?

Brandon Moss traded to St Louis Cardinals for LHP Rob Kaminsky

While he hasn't settled in well at Cleveland, Moss has an pretty decent track record and might actually be a good fit for St Louis. The Cardinals were looking for someone who can play both 1B and the OF, having already lost 1B Matt Adams for the season and with OF Matt Holliday re-injuring his right quad last night.

Theorist: Thought you would like his comment about gay friends. He might even have some black friends.

Reflection & Third Leg & Dragoni's hope: The Donald is for real and will go all the way as a Republican unless the RNC treats him unfairly. Remember the bashing that Ross Perot got from the RNC that caused him to run as a 3rd party candidate.

Indispensable & More Dobbins: Enough of his majesty Dobbins, his replacement is suppose to be qualified and ready to go so why the big pay off of Dobbins....maybe there's more to this story.

Perspective: That's what Pinkycare was designed to do....screw up the health care system so bad that the only cure would be Medicare for all.

And that's the way it should be....Thursday July 30, 2015.
