Fighting crime

CAPE GIRARDEAU'S leaders constantly want to raise taxes to fund their pet projects. You never hear them talk about increasing police patrols or hiring more police officers. I don't mean ticket writers. I mean real neighborhood patrolling and real crime prevention. I might vote for tax increase for more crime fighters.

Wasting tax dollars

IF YOU are interested in what the Cape Girardeau City Council is doing with your tax dollars, here is one tidbit of information. Arcturis, an outside consulting firm, was awarded an $81,985 contract for the purpose of comprehensive planning. I forgot the amount that was paid to an outside firm to come up with the slogan "Where the river turns a thousand tales." I think it was in the neighborhood of $60,000. The city owes firefighters a considerable amount of back pay connected with the minimum-wage increase and wants to take benefits from new hires. Does anyone believe that the fire tax that we passed is going to benefit the firemen for whom it was intended? Voters need to take a look at this mayor and council's record before giving them more tax dollars to waste.

Spewing venom

DAVID LIMBAUGH, what do you think about the Idaho senator who embarrassed himself, his family, his state and the country? How about spewing your self-righteous venom toward this guy? You seem to have a lot to go around, but I predict no acknowledgment of this idiot's actions.

Rough street

IS THE city planning on fixing Lexington Avenue in Cape Girardeau? For more than a month the road has been in rough shape, and there seems to be nobody even looking at repairing it.

Jogging safety

I HAVE a job that requires me to go to work fairly early in the morning. I see a lot of joggers early in the mornings, which is great. However, they should stay on the sidewalks for safety. Most do not wear any reflective equipment. Use the sidewalk that your tax dollars paid for and stay safe.

Time to leave

AMERICAN LOSSES in Iraq are close to 4,000 souls. The prime minister of Iraq lashes out at the U.S. military. American opinion is almost 80 percent against the war. Now that Karl Rove is gone, will President Bush see that we need to get out of Iraq?

Teaching children

THIS IS in response to the poll the Missourian took about the No Child Left Behind Act. The response about parents being ignorant because our children are failing is a scapegoat. I didn't realize that when I graduated from high school and took vocational training I would need a teacher's degree to do homework with my child. I am a single parent who has an A-honor roll student. I'm the one who taught him how to read. If a student does well, the teacher takes the credit. If a students does poorly, the teacher blames the parents and the student. Let's see why the government got involved in the first place.

Dear Abby

I HAVE a friend who is running around on her husband, and she treats him terribly. He is such a good guy and tries so hard to keep the family together. She lies to him and her fellow workers all the time. She thinks people don't know that she's lying. She uses people and then drops them. I think she has a mental problem, but I don't know how to tell her she needs help. She is destroying herself and her family. She is in church every Sunday, but it doesn't seem to do her any good. Could someone tell me how to help this person before she self-destructs?

In response to Dear Abby,

If truly you are close friends with this woman, then you owe it to her and her family to intervene. As long as she thinks she is fooling everyone, there is no reason for her to stop what she is doing (from her viewpoint)but clearly she is out of control and needs to be confronted. I would suggest that you and another of her friends try to talk to her in a calm manner and tell her she has to stop lying and using people. Let her know that you are all on to her. She actually needs counseling by a professional. At this point I would then give her a chance to try to straighten things out and be supportive in those efforts. If she refuses to change her ways, then sooner or later her world is going to come crashing down around her. If she goes to church,as you said she did, then perhaps her minister or someone in the church would be available to counsel her. And if you are a person of faith, pray for her. Sounds like she needs alot of prayer. Good luck!

Wasting tax dollars:

It's easy to deal with people who squander your tax dollars. Show up at council meetings and berate them for doing a sh*t job. Then actively support candidates that share your views on fiscal conservativeness.

Spewing venom:

David Limbaugh is as laughable as the other idiot who shares his name. I wonder what chapter in the bible tells gods followers to harbor closeted homosexuals in their ranks and then tell openly gay people that they are an abomination before god?

If the DNC could just raise enough money for gay hookers, I'm sure the rest of the republican party could be forcibly outed and what goes on in peoples private bedrooms would no longer be an issue for them to crucify actual thinking Americans over.

Rough street:

Screw Lexington, the city has a monorail to build to the new river campus... honestly, get your priorities in order!

Jogging safety:

Actually, they should use the running and biking trail that is constantly being expanded and improved. Zero cars = zero chance of ending up like that ghost guy from "Pet Sematary"

Time to leave:

The president is well insulated from reality. The man brags about not reading the paper. What else do you need to know? :)

Teaching children:

The purpose of the public education system is to keep kids of the street 7ish hours a day and produce enough people to change the oil and flip the burgers for the rest of society.

Dear Abby:

Confront your friend, confront her husband, be ready for the fallout.

How do you feel about the war in Iraq? You chance to state a clear opinion. Your opinion. Do you feel Bush is leading the country in the right direction? What do you think Iraq had to do with 9/11?

I will wait for your reply so we may discuss this with facts not conjecture.

-- Posted by cannedheat on Fri, Aug 31, 2007, at 8:59 PM

The war in Iraq is a quagmire that cannot be won either politically or militarily. They (the combatants) fist need to agree what they are fighting for. 1) is it oil and stability in the region? 2) or is it the holy war to end all wars?

That kinda depends on who you ask. What do you think would have happen if we would have left the day Saddam was caught and let the United Nations have Iraq.

2) No Bush is not taking us in the direction we need to go. If he is going to use our security as his reason for military action he needs to bring our troops home and secure our borders with them.

3) Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11 that is nothing that any one has been able to prove. Its no secret that Saddam wanted George H W Bush dead, and may have even attempted to kill him. Saddam was simply a thorn in America's behind and I think W just wanted to get him out of the picture and install a government that he could control.

Ain't that how we got Saddam?

"W" will be in Iraq until Jan 2009. I've seen a lot of Bush/Cheney bumper and window stickers disappear from cars lately,,,,,,,,,,,,,did they wash off or were they ripped off??????????????????

-- Posted by changedname on Sat, Sep 1, 2007, at 6:31 AM

The other questions are: Do you believe everything in the Bible? Do you believe all Americans should have health care even if they can't afford it? You can answer these questions with a yes or no.

-- Posted by cannedheat on Fri, Aug 31, 2007, at 9:02 PM

1) No and I don't know anyone that does.

I have answered your health care question before. You just refuse to accept it as an answer. Currently in America if you are in need of health care you can go to the emergency room and receive the care you need including and not limited to life saving treatments. In America if you wish to have preventive care you should seek out the companies that offer those programs and if they fit your needs join them. The people that pioneered this country didn't have health care they took care of themselves. Any thing that requires more government control I'm against.

-- Posted by minute-man on Sat, Sep 1, 2007, at 6:34 AM

Dear Abby,

There are two sides to every story. He could be secretly abusive, or just better at hiding his affairs. Or maybe she just like to run around and he's ok with it. Stay out of their business. They will or will not work it out. You will be the enemy no matter how it turns out if you interfere. Keep your house in order and maybe she'll follow your good example. if you want to help, pray for her.

Remember that next time you carelessly cut your finger nails, or have a wart removed... YOU'RE KILLING A HUMAN BEING.

Your idiocy has invalidated anyone here from every taking you as anything but a crackpot. Hang up your keyboard, were sick of your brand of crazy. Also, you guys got the new Rugers in yet?

This is exactly the type of response that is expected from an idiot like you!

When was the last time that you found a heart beat in a clipped finger nail or wart? "STUPID". That's the only word that can describe a person such as yourself that wants to rip apart the values and moralities of others because his own pea sized brain cant understand them. Get a grip you PIG.

Think this qualifies as supporting the war and torture

-- Posted by cannedheat on Fri, Aug 31, 2007, at 10:15 PM

cannedheat:

You already know the statement that you are referring to. No I don't think it gives evidence that I support the war. (I don't)

I do however support protecting the American people and way of life. And if torture is the thing that gets vital information from an enemy combatant then so be it. I do not support torture methods that would cripple or kill the person.

The following is a list of things that you have accused me of without any of your so called proof.

being a war monger (how) a woman hater(why because I don't believe in abortion, my wife doesn't either) a wife beater (typical response by trying to put yourself above those that don't agree with you) and a child abuser. Is there any thing that you would like to add? I would expect an apology from a decent man unless of course you can provide proof of your accusations. If you cant provide the proof I will understand when I don't receive your apology. A liar will never apologize.

"Fighting Crime"

I believe A few years ago there was a city wide vote to raise taxes for more police, which was voted down. It is not as if the issue hasn't been raised in our recent past, it was simply deemed "unnecessary" at the time.

-- Posted by curthe on Sat, Sep 1, 2007, at 8:29 AM

For those that mock God and the followers of Jesus Christ, I do believe there is nothing to say to you. So hence, this remark is not to you.

In response to the self-rightous individual not waiting for a few days when a scandal hits the Republican Party - I do believe the answer is in a news conference today with the resignation of said senator.

To those mockers: I am NOT a Republican. I am NOT a Democrat. I am NOT a Libertarian. I AM a Christian. My life is NOT defined by a party of politics to which I owe my life and allegiance. My allegiance is to my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave me my life. I am not perfect, nor do I expect others to be. I do have opinions, which each of us are allowed to have. I am allowed to voice my opinion, in spite of the attacks that individuals like you will make when someone disagrees with you. I'm just wondering, tho, if you gave God a chance, what difference He would make in your life.

Michael J. Ballou:

Your posting of 12:55am this morning is a well thought out and intelligent post. It is a fact that the city gave money to home owners in the area of the soccer fields. It was called the Locust St. project and I personally know of 5 people in our church that took advantage of the program. The deal was that once the work was complete you must agree not to sell the house and cash in on the improvements. Most of the work was done by unqualified and untrained people that were there to get the wages only. I can tell you that more than one fire was blamed on faulty wiring when the house was rewired through the program. I can also give locations and and tell you what work was done so you can see for yourself if it was worth the effort and cost. I don't think it was. When as much as $30.000 is put into a house for repairs you would think that it would raise the value of the house. It didn't. It is just another example of the wasteful spending of the city of Cape.

Bravo! Thats the best posting I have seen in weeks.

-- Posted by minute-man on Sat, Sep 1, 2007, at 9:10 AM

Elizabeth, your post is the most cogent and articulate post I've ever read here. I agree with you 100%. Like you, I'm not a Democrat/Republican or Liberal/Conservative. I make decisions based and vote based on my core beliefs. At voting time, I have to weigh things very carefully because there's no one perfect candidate.

Well, I didn't mean to go on & on. I applaud your post, your courage in making it, and the fact that you continually post in a respectful and thoughtful manner.

-- Posted by SEMOfan80 on Sat, Sep 1, 2007, at 9:49 AM

I agree with Elizabeth...I also consider myself an independent thinker when it comes to politics...I disagree with using mean ugly comments about anyone...I read the newspaper and I listen to the radio so I get updates on the news if a bulletin comes through..but I stopped watching TV news after the 2004 pres. election...I don't miss it one bit...I think the campaign for Senator between McKaskle and Tallent was one of the worse examples of political campaigns, it still makes me feel sick...I read and form my judgments...at least when the newspapers give opinions they refer to it as editorials...otherwise they present the news and assume that the reader is capable of making up her/his mind about current events..

The newspaper also has other things that are of interest...including local news...

Maybe there is a reason why TV anchors are being paid the equivalent of entertainers..do you think ratings has anything to do with it...hmmm

We, as citizens, have power that we are not using...we need to make outselves heard and become active in politics..it is our readiness to just let others look after our interests that has gotten us into the fix that we are presently in...and folks "it ain't gonna get any better" unless we quit complaining and stand up for our beliefs...

The people who continue to be sacrificed foolishly in Iraq (American / Iraqi / Coalition forces / Insurgents)ARE people. The people who sit on death row waiting to have their lives terminated for violent crimes ARE people.

A clump of cells is not a human being.

I am personally apposed to abortion. I do not support it as a form of birth control for people who are too lazy to protect themselves from pregnancy.

HOWEVER, I have the good sense to know that this is a womens issue. It is their bodies, and their decision.

No matter how badly you want to enforce your will on others, the tighter your grip, the more thinking Americans slip through your fingers.

elizabeth:

Politicians are supposed to be held to higher moral standard. Which means when you are part of a political party who's focus has been to strip away the rights and villanize a segment of our population for purely childish political reasons AND you turn out to be the very thing that your party rails against, that makes you a hypocrite. Worst of all, he's sold out his true self for power and money through his entire political career.

What is respectable or christian like about that?

I have no problem that the man is gay.. or bi.. or bi-curious.. whatever he does in the privacy of his own home is fine. However, soliciting sex in a public bathroom is morally reprehensible for someone who is supposed to be an example to the people of Idaho.

The line about "I'm not perfect, and no one is" is a cop out I've heard from christians for years as an excuse to cheat on their spouses, beat their kids, and just about any other other despicable thing you can think of.

Drop your crutch and take responsibility for yourself. Try and realize that a guy with a goatee, pitchfork, and a red cape isn't pulling the strings behind the scenes.

If god is there, he's likely sick of your lies and excuses for the sin he sees you committing.

I'm calling Ted Haggard right now to pray on this.

I'm sure that Barney Frank and his lover/roommate/pimp could hook you folks up if that's what you want!

-- Posted by John in Jackson on Sat, Sep 1, 2007, at 12:05 PM

Several people have stated that politicians are "supposed to be" held to a higher moral standard than the rest of us. I'm not being argumentative and really want to know. WHERE is this stated? In our Constitution? In the oath of office that they swear to?

I don't think people (except for a religious leader who is, as stated in the Bible, to be an example and judged more carefully), are to be held to different standards. Our laws are supposed to be applied equally to all, according to everything I've read.

If anyone knows where some sort of official, credible document states that political leaders are supposed to be held to a higher standard, I hope they'll share that here.

-- Posted by SEMOfan80 on Sat, Sep 1, 2007, at 12:11 PM

Another question, again not for argument.

It's perfectly fine to go to a public bar or public restaurant and solicit sex from another adult, as long as you're not paying for the sex. Right? I mean, people go to bars all the time to pick up sexual partners.

Then why is soliciting sex in another public place, a bathroom, a crime?

Personally, I think both are morally wrong. I just don't understand the distinction between the two acts, from a legal standpoint.

Minute-man: I apologize to you and your family for any name calling and false statements. Like I said last night I will be civil if you will be civil. You have done a lot of name calling also. How about that?

If you want to ask me a question or questions, go ahead, if not personal I will answer them to the best of my ability, if I can't or don't know will say so.

Just curious about a statement you made referring to health care. You said, "anything that requires more government control than I am against". Hope I got that right, but if this is true than why are you wanting women to be regulated. Abortion is a government controlled agenda or at least you want it to be.

As I stated last night if you want to deal with facts, maybe we won't agree on many things, but for sure we will both learn something.

Thanks and respectfully, cannedheat

-- Posted by cannedheat on Sat, Sep 1, 2007, at 2:01 PM

My personal opinion of Senator Craig is he was a hypocrite and that is what sunk him. I don't care what lifestyle he choses, he is not hurting me or my family by his sexual orientation. However, when someone preaches something for so long, remember the Family Resource Center gave him a 100% on his voting record against gays and lesbians, then is caught doing the same thing he wails about he is a hypocrite. Al Gore is a hypocrite, I do believe he could live in a 2000 sq ft house and be a better steward of the earth.

Sen. Craig chose his course and as MJB said he prostituted his integrity and core principles for money and power. That is the reason he was ridiculed.

-- Posted by cannedheat on Sat, Sep 1, 2007, at 2:08 PM

MJB, you call a bathroom a "sleazy" place, but a bar isn't?

If we have come to expect a higher standard, even when it's nowhere in our constitution or the oath, perhaps our expectations are unreasonable.

Our expectations in this country seem to be that it's okay for me as a private citizen to mess up, but God forbid someone that is a public servant do the same. So how is it that they can be expected to be so perfect, when perfection is both subjective and unattainable?

Some of you sit here and rip apart anyone who doesn't agree with you. Just as a Democrat rips apart a Republican, so does a Republican rip apart a Democrat. So being above reproach in the eyes of the public is logically impossible. There's no other way to look at it, if you look at it without prejudice.

So in short, we expect our politicians to be something they absolutely cannot be. Then we treat them like trash when they act like we do. And then we wonder why nice people with good families don't want to subject themselves and their loved ones to such a public and their viciousness. We as a public have created this and are reaping our rewards. How sad.

-- Posted by pmiinch on Sat, Sep 1, 2007, at 2:30 PM

It is a social contract between the voters of America and their elected officials to be above "moral turpitude."

How many millions of dollars did republicans spend on investigating a ******** vs the money they committed to investigating 9/11?

That enough is enough to outrage a thinking person.

I understand that they are people like everyone else, BUT this guy railed against gays, put forth that he is a christian, and is supposed to be part of this countries "moral majority" because of his campaign funding from religious groups.

That's the issue here. Not that some dumpy old gay guy wanted to hook up in a bathroom.

Stop being an apologist for a political group who would rather spit on you, than care about you as a human being.

-- Posted by Tarantulas on Sat, Sep 1, 2007, at 2:35 PM

SEMOfan80:

Bars are a place for social interaction and it sometimes leads to people going home and having sex.

What potato-boy did was try to instigate a sex act in a public restroom with an undercover cop while children potentially used the restroom for it's intended purpose.

Based on the undercover officers report, there is no way to confuse what potato-boy was trying to accomplish. His goal was deviant sex, and he will likely lose it all before it's over.

-- Posted by Tarantulas on Sat, Sep 1, 2007, at 2:40 PM

Just one more thing on Sen. Craig, he would not have been forced by the GOP to resign had there not been a GOP governor in Idaho. Sen. Vitter is as big a hypocrite as Sen. Craig, but Louisiana's governor is a Democrat and therefore would have picked a Democrat to take his seat. It was easy for the GOP to call for his resignation because they will keep the seat even in the next election. Not so with Vitter's.

Michael J. Ballou, I answered one of your questions in my original post. I was very clear in what I meant by being something they can't be. The "we" is the American public in general, of which I'm a member :) I'm not pointing any fingers at others and am including myself.

Also, I have no stories to tell, and no stories at all actually.

I never made any excuses. I clearly said I thought such behavior was wrong. I simply brought up another, related point.

I'm sorry you weren't able to follow what I wrote.

Hey! Did someone kidnap MJB and bring in a ringer, or what? Kind of a refreshing change from the usual MJB--although (I've said this before) the LENGTH of some postings is excessive.

It does bother me that some of the bloggers here tend to get really personal whenever someone does not agree with them. Kind of childish, don't you think?

We had 81 of our troops murdered in Iraq in August. Yes murdered because this deserter in Washington and this Congress don't have the guts to do what was right when the Iraqi government went on vacation.

Think the surge is working. Lets compare the deaths of each month in 2006 to the same month in 2007. Surge started in Jan 07 so we will start in Jan to compare.

Jan 06 = 62 Jan 07 = 83

Feb 06 = 55 Feb 07 = 81

Mar 06 = 31 Mar 07 = 81

Apr 06 = 76 Apr 07 = 104

May 06 = 69 May 07 = 126

Jun 06 = 61 Jun 07 = 101

Jul 06 = 43 Jul 07 = 79

Aug 06 = 65 Aug 07 = 81

These are true numbers. Not trying to cook the books like the deserter.

Also there were over 1,800 Iraq civilians killed in August. How well is this surge working.

Michael J. Ballou -- Politician. That is the funniest think I have read so far. Can you imagine? Have you thought this out very much, it doesn't seem so? That would mean that that YOU would be part of the same system that you claim is killing, taxing and destroying our way of life. How would you defend yourself from people like yourself? All of a sudden you would be the one being accused of some how sneaking tons of explosives in a burning building while thousands of people are catching in person and millions on TV. It would be your fault that the court house has some A/C problems. It would be your fault that the bus service doesn't run to every neighborhood. Man O Man -Run Mike Run!!!!
