Speak Out 1/22/09

Thursday, January 22, 2009

Ready for digital

WHILE throwing away some old newspapers I found an article about the change to digital television that was published in December 2007. It explained the advantages of the switch, what people needed to do to be ready and how to get coupons from the government that could be used to purchase the converter box needed to receive the new digital broadcast. This was over a year ago. How many more years do we need to get ready?

Build traffic circle

IT would be good to have a traffic circle at Mount Auburn and Hopper roads. Traffic circles slow the traffic, but most cars do not have to stop. This uses less gasoline than stopping and then moving up a few feet and stopping again and trying to guess when it is your turn to go. The city is marking its right of way and getting ready to change the intersection. We may as well make the change for the better and build a traffic circle.

Respect for the Lord

IN response to comments about the Cape County Cowboy Church: How dare anyone criticize what another person wears when he worships the Lord. I attend Cape County Cowboy Church and am proud to say that every single Sunday morning when I walk into church, Bible in hand, my boots are polished, my hat is brushed off, my Western shirt is clean and ironed and my jeans are looking especially blue. What does it matter if we wear Western clothes or show up in prom dresses and tuxedos? Everybody comes to the Cowboy Church to worship the same God. As soon as Brother Jim says "Let's pray," a big whoosh comes over the building as hats come off out of respect for the Lord. Focus more on what the good Lord has to say rather than what's on the preacher's head.

No more deficits

WE have been snookered. Many officials are calling for massive federal spending even though they know we have a federal budget deficit. It's time to go back to deficit reduction. It's time to balance the federal budget. That's how we get economic growth: Balance the budget, and let the private economy run.

Blame the parents

MICHAEL Jensen's column, "The lack of accountability," is absolutely right. I'll go one step further. Blame the parents who are not watching what their children are doing. When my boy was 12 years old, he went to the mall and brought home a tape. I listened to it. It was terrible and violent. I made him take it right back, and I scolded the shopkeeper. There's got to be accountability for the parents.

Right on the mark

RIGHT on, David Limbaugh. You tell it like it is and what we can expect in the next four years.

Watch out for pets

WHEN snow and ice are forecast, keep an eye out for your animals and other people's animals. If you see a dog or other pet left outside without shelter and without food in temperatures like this, call the Humane Society. Don't turn your back and say, "That's none of my business." It's everybody's business when animals that can't speak for themselves suffer.

Doggy doo

WHILE driving down Perry Avenue, I see a man with two dogs. One dog wants to keep walking, his other dog wants to stop and poop in somebody's yard. He lets the dog do its duty and then tells the dog what a good dog he is and they keep on walking. He probably wonders why people hate him and his dogs.

Unnamed survivor

I noticed in the paper where a woman died, but it didn't list my friend as being related. So I did not realize it was his mother. It seems there has been some division of family. I can't believe they would carry it over quite this far.

Better TV

ONCE again Speak Out comments are complaining about the conversion to digital TV. This has been explained in detail so many times even the worst of dullards should know what's going on by now, but here we go again. The number of receiving and transmitting devices is increasing by leaps and bounds. Laptops, cell phones, satellite dishes, garage-door openers, televisions, emergency workers' two-way radios all require a bandwidth to operate. Bandwidths are getting so crowded that if something isn't done soon you're not going to have any television to watch at all. Switching TV signals to digital not only frees up bandwidth but also gives the consumer a better signal. For a meager investment and the minor inconvenience of installation, you're getting an improved signal and the possibility of endless new free channels in the future.

Thanks for light

The traffic signal at Broadway and Sprigg Street has been adjusted to respond to traffic flow. Thank you to whoever is responsible for this fantastic improvement. What about the rest?

Respect for the Lord let the man have his say, then conduct your own life as you see fit. Im thinking hes been through some tough times and means no harm. You both are right within your own relationship with your Lord.

No more deficits its vote buying at its best. All it will stimulate is an extended recession and an opportunity for more vote buying. The people have spoken.

Better TV and Ready for digital: The narrow bandwidth will open up new opportunities for new or expanded media if the government does not grab up all that extra bandwidth. I am uncomfortable with the change being mandatory.

No more deficits: This president, as the previous one, believe that you can spend yourself rich. Neither realizing that wealth is built from savings and not spending. Government debt eats up a lot of savings that could go toward wealth creation.

"Better TV and Ready for digital: The narrow bandwidth will open up new opportunities for new or expanded media if the government does not grab up all that extra bandwidth. I am uncomfortable with the change being mandatory."

The government has already auctioned off the "extra" bandwidth that will open up after the digital switch. The government has raised approximately $18 billion from the auction.

-- Posted by Alt Ctrl Del on Thu, Jan 22, 2009, at 12:45 PM

The switch to digital T.V. isn't mandatory. If you prefer to live in the past you don't have to buy converter and there will still be low power stations broadcasting in analog. I suspect some on the ball entrepreneur may even start a whole new network of low power stations to cater to people afraid of progress.

-- Posted by Data48 on Thu, Jan 22, 2009, at 12:46 PM

No more deficits: An article in support of your speak out is Frank Shostaks's "Can Fiscal Stimulus Revive the US Economy?" at http://mises.org/story/3310

The hypocrisy is just astounding isn't it. Clinton is living extremely well on our money and then making money on the side with his book deal. Then, of course, they have the nerve to lecture us about the country's economic woes. People like that don't care about us.

You really want to help someone, live off YOUR money and don't give the extra back to gov't (we know what they will do with it). Take that extra 1 million dollars and personally help out as many people as you can.

Can you imagine the amount of money we would be left with if we cut all the crap out of politicians salaries/retirements, etc.? Make them live on the average salary for Americans. Now I'm just talking crazy!!!

I don't think that's possible. You'd have to apply for a license to broadcast analog TV. The FCC isn't gonna allow you to do that. True, regular stations will remain broadcasting in analog. Not to mention, all that band width that's gonna be freed up is most likely already been sold.

Turnip and KCPO,

I don't know what I did/said either. I could do everything just like normal except that my comments would never appear below an article. So I decided to create a new account and everything worked just fine. Thus, technically, I wasn't banned in the traditional sense but not being able to see my comments is enough for me to call it "banned." I guess enough people complained about my blunt comments [it seems that some people don't understand that whole sticks and stones thing]... and, no, my initials aren't MJB.

-- Posted by isobar on Thu, Jan 22, 2009, at 1:27 PM

Isobar,

Your comments and style are somewhat reminiscent of poppa, but I am easily confused.

There is a difference between blunt and rude, some can't seem to get the hang of it and think it is fine when they do it, but get upset when they are the target.

Mr "Good"body (your screen name is rather ironic):

In response to you questioning the AEI facts from yesterday, the average hourly wage in the United States as of December 2008 was $18.36 per hour.

Please see the following Bureau of Labor Statistics website for further information:

http://www.bls.gov/news.release/empsit.n...

In your little world of minimum wage jobs (which happens to be $7.05 per hour as of January 1 2009 and will increase to $7.25 per hour in July of 2009) you might only see retail jobs. The fact of the matter is, the median household income for Cape Girardeau County in 2007 inflation adjusted dollars was $41,669.

**No More Deficits**

According to that civics test linked here a while back, the way to get the economy going is for government to lower taxes and raise spending. After reading more on the subject, I sort of understand that logic now, even though it goes against the grain when thinking about what we, as individuals, should do when our personal financial situations are making us cut back.

Producer ... From somewhere way in the back of my mind, I seem to recall ... long ago ... the 'necessity' of raising congressional salaries, with the explanation/justification being that our government was not 'attracting' better candidates because of the low wages 'we' paid--that the average American could not afford to be in office because it was SO costly to work for the federal government ... I may be mis-remembering that ...

Oh, and Pups ... Mom doesn't spank ... but her Stern Looks have been known to produce tearful apologies and promises to never do 'that' again--or, as directed to adult offspring, bring on laughter ...

-- Posted by gurusmom on Thu, Jan 22, 2009, at 4:12 PM

In reference to your URL posted earlier, Producer. Yes we should employ unskilled black females to build our roads. Those darn hard working white male construction workers always seem to get those jobs.

Can't be having that type of discrimination going on with this stimulus bill.

-- Posted by cycle_ride on Thu, Jan 22, 2009, at 4:24 PM

I seem to recall ... long ago ... the 'necessity' of raising congressional salaries, with the explanation/justification being that our government was not 'attracting' better candidates because of the low wages 'we' paid

That might be the case if their base salary is what they actually were paid. (in 2002 it was $150,000) We all know that congressmen receive, money from lobbyist, money for interviews, campaign contributions that never actually make it there, etc... Not to mention the 'better' candidates you speak of are probably TOO smart to enter politics:)

-- Posted by Producer1 on Thu, Jan 22, 2009, at 4:27 PM

Cycle,

That was the line that upset me the most. I mean if you want the epitome of the hard-working American spirit that helped build this country, along with the average American paying taxes and struggling to make ends meet, then look no further your run-of-the-mill construction worker. If they don't need it then who does? In the mind of Mr.Reich everyone else. Sickening!!

-- Posted by Producer1 on Thu, Jan 22, 2009, at 4:35 PM

Mom, I disagree with your civics test on tax cuts and increased spending. There should be tax cuts at least matched by spending cuts. Government debt ties up savings and as you know, real wealth is created off savings or real money. Money is used as an exchange mediam between products, what product is the government manufacturing? It doesn't produce anything, all its money has to come from the private sector. Except for foreign purchases of government debt, debt is financed out of the credit market which also provides money for production.

What works best for personal finances also works best for government.

2nd Amendment

For those who believed Barrack Obama truly supported the second amendment it was announced on his second full day in office that he is seeking to repeal the Tiahrt Amendment, repeal the "gun show loophole" which in reality does not exist and make permanent the federal Assault Weapons Ban.

For some this will be good news and for others not so much. It won't affect me as I already have mine and may make a few bucks.

Excellent point regarding keeping an eye out for animals' welfare during the harsh winter months. The same goes for the sweltering summer months, and actually anytime that you notice an animal is not getting adequate care. Far too many people aren't responsible enough to take proper care of their pets. And, far too many people look the other way when they know an animal is being neglected. All it takes is a phone call to help an innocent animal get the love and care that it needs.

The full text of HR 573 IH has been published on THOMAS. This is the bill that our Jo Ann Emerson is sponsering.

The bill orginally read "To amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to prohibit the marketing of authorized generic drugs."

The bill now has an amendment attatched that reads "Prohibition of Authorized Generic Drugs".

Is our representative trying to pass a law that makes money saving generic drugs illegal, or am I reading this thing all wrong?

-- Posted by Lumpy on Thu, Jan 22, 2009, at 5:58 PM

Turnip,

I'm glad that's your opinion because I don't see it. If by "upset" no cool name means "either comes back with an attempted witty reply or a well-founded rebuttal," then maybe; I was taught to defend myself. Although seeing that this is the internet where anonymity reigns supreme [it's a message board--what the **** do I care?], I do have a tendency to become preoccupied with life and I consequently become uninterested in the internet.

No need to waste your time...

Congratulations GREYWOLF! Frankly, work has slowed down for me as I'm essentially between projects; how else was I going to pass the day?

More information:

Considering that the following would have been a dead giveaway to who I am, I'm positive that I got banned due to my avatar depicting cannabis. Especially after the powers that be deleted it and I put it back. I'll just keep the car or something that somebody won't complain about [again, this is the internet. google "sex" and see what happens.]

Obama is 50% White and 50% Black. Please spread the word! His white mother carried him: does that make him more white than black? I have nothing against the man besides some of his over-zealous plans that spend way too much money on folks that I don't know. I also don't like his policies on firearms--I go to CCW class on Superbowl Sunday :).

The little lady is home.

It was my belief that the Cowboy Church was created so that people could worship the Lord without fear of being persecuted for not wearing the right clothes, driving the right car, or being in the right clique.

I attend sunday service at a Cape Girardeau church where there are well dressed, well to do people that drive in very nice shiney vehicles, that live in big big houses, but allow their kids to be disrespectful, snotty, noisey, and will not take them out the the cry room even when the pastor has to raise his voice to be heard over said crying child.

Ammo doesn't really "go bad" if stored properly as I have some military over fifty years old and they work like new. I am also going to get some more hi cap magazines.

Willy,

here is JoANN's Bill

111th CONGRESS

1st Session

H. R. 573

To amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to prohibit the marketing of authorized generic drugs.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

January 15, 2009

Mrs. EMERSON (for herself, Mr. BERRY, Mr. MOORE of Kansas, and Mr. WAMP) introduced the following bill; which was referred to the Committee on Energy and Commerce

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

A BILL

To amend the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act to prohibit the marketing of authorized generic drugs.

Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,

SECTION 1. PROHIBITION OF AUTHORIZED GENERICS.

Section 505 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (21 U.S.C. 355) is amended by adding at the end the following:

`(w) Prohibition of Authorized Generic Drugs-

`(1) IN GENERAL- Notwithstanding any other provision of this Act, no holder of a new drug application approved under subsection (c) shall manufacture, market, sell, or distribute an authorized generic drug, direct or indirectly, or authorize any other person to manufacture, market, sell, or distribute an authorized generic drug.

`(2) AUTHORIZED GENERIC DRUG- For purposes of this subsection, the term `authorized generic drug'--

`(A) means any version of a listed drug (as such term is used in subsection (j)) that the holder of the new drug application approved under subsection (c) for that listed drug seeks to commence marketing, selling, or distributing, directly or indirectly, after receipt of a notice sent pursuant to subsection (j)(2)(B) with respect to that listed drug; and

`(B) does not include any drug to be marketed, sold, or distributed--

`(i) by an entity eligible for exclusivity with respect to such drug under subsection (j)(5)(B)(iv); or

`(ii) after expiration or forfeiture of any exclusivity with respect to such drug under such subsection (j)(5)(B)(iv).'.

Here is the link.

http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/thomas

Ironically, our wonderful Congresswoman was on KFVS boasting how she voted against the release of the second half of the bailout money. Funny, how they failed to mention how she voted TWICE FOR IT initially.

Not too mention they didn't mention this! Maybe I'm wrong here. Maybe we need some local guillotine action. OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!

Megal,

That's not a root, it's a dancing lady!

The censorship on this site is the most extreme that I have witnessed. I still can't figure out why g-e-t off, as in ******* the cellphone while driving, is censored. And I really can't figure out why got off is perfectly acceptable to submit.

Don't forget about also stepping over some arbitrary line. In that Purcell historical building fire article, I stated, "In before Swingle files arson charges against Purcell," and it was removed at the next opportunity I had to take a look. I then quoted myself and asked why; that comment remained. I'm so sorry that a basic comment like that would hurt your feelings so much that you had to go and complain. Maybe some Missourian staff member found it to offensive or something. The point remains that this is the internet and some simple words regarding an article from a small town newspaper doesn't mean a **** when compared to hardcore sex is just a Google away.

Trust me, the kiddies these days know more about this stuff than we do.
