Speak Out 3/26/09

Thursday, March 26, 2009

No Jackson stimulus

I think it is despicable that the Missouri Department of Transportation has designated $5.3 million of the state's $525 million stimulus package for Cape Girardeau and not a penny for the badly needed traffic light on Highway 25 at Jackson's South Elementary School entrance. This is a hazardous situation for parents and children trying to get to school as well as regular traffic on Highway 25.

Barrier concern

THE Missouri Department of Transportation has done some stupid things in the past, but the steel-post-and-cable barrier on southbound I-55 is the worst. I recently had an alternator belt break, and my car stopped with no warning. What does MoDOT expect drivers to do when this happens?

Judging Obama

WE cannot bury our heads in the sand and allow President Obama to be in office four years before we make a judgment. Even two years might be too long. He wants to throw money at education. That's one place that doesn't need money. We need to call our legislators and tell them that. Education will be fine. Of course, school lobbyists want more all the time. Superintendents always have their hands out for a bigger piece of the pie. Americans don't want higher taxes. We can't have it both ways. So Obama has some tough choices to make. He's in the big-boy seat. Let's see if he can drive the bus. If he can't, then in four years we're going to need to get someone else who's capable.

Nice cable guy

THANKS to a very special man. My husband and I were shopping in Cape Girardeau on Tuesday. Our car wouldn't start, and my husband was checking under the hood when a friendly young man in a Jeep came over to help us. We didn't have battery cables. He went into the store where we were shopping and purchased a cable set. He gave us a jump start and made sure the car was OK. We tried to pay for the battery cables and for helping us, but he wouldn't take anything. He said he works at Plaza Tire in Piedmont, Mo. It's good to know there are caring people in this busy world. God bless you.

Dangerous barrier

I hated to read about the accident on Interstate 55 in which the barrier cable caused the vehicle to overturn, sending the driver and three passengers to the hospital. This was an accident waiting to happen. It would not have happened before the cable. Why was the cable put up so close to the edge of the highway? You can't swerve to miss something without injuries and tearing up your car. How long is the Missouri Department of Transportation going to watch people get injured and not remove those cables?

Babies in church

THIS call pertains to people bringing babies into church. I'm all for children coming to church and teaching them at a young age. But our church has a nursery. This Sunday we had three small babies crying during the service. It's disturbing. I would like to teach these young parents or have someone to tell them that the nursery is for children like that.

Funny column

I really enjoy the column by Bob and Callie Clark Miller. It's so good. This week, he made me just laugh up a storm. He's so funny.

Crowd at fire scene

I live in Scott City. On March 22 there was a fire in the 500 block of East Olive Street. There were two police cars, two firetrucks, a rescue unit and an ambulance there. They didn't need extra people, but there were 100-plus cars, trucks and sport utility vehicles that went up that street and around the block. There were children on bicycles and adults on foot. All thought they had to walk up there. Don't these people realize they were hampering the people trying to put out the fire?

Iraqi safety

I am concerned with us pulling out of Iraq because the attacks are becoming more prevalent. I would like to see the Iraqi women protected. How sad that a society doesn't allow music. I think that's sad that their government is that limited. We owe it to the Iraqi people after going in and doing what we did to their country to at least make sure they're safe and can rule themselves.

Don't punish parents

PARENTS shouldn't be punished if their children drop out of school. All my children were high school graduates only because our family placed an importance on education. At least get through high school if you do nothing else. I think military service is a viable option for high school dropouts. It's obvious some parents have failed, but you can't hold them accountable. No one ever means to be a failure as a parent. You just are sometimes. If school principals and superintendents are committed, you're going to have children in school until graduation.

Don't punish parents.

CRACK KILLS!!

Seek help immediately.

No Jackson stimulus

Oh yes, we are really going to care about a school with a poorly designed parking lot. Wasn't this discussed last week?

Barrier concern

MODOT expects you to pull over to the right, just as you're supposed to. This topic has been beaten to death.

Dangerous barrier

Is there an echo in here? Do you really want to spend more money to have it either eliminated or relocated? If you don't like it, then don't drive by it.

Iraqi safety

to hell with Iraq and their oil

Willy,

I posted to you on yesterday evening's speak out.

-- Posted by Theorist on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 9:23 AM

Good morning everyone, it's gonna be a beautiful day.....

No Jackson stimulus...."despicable that we don't put a traffic light in front of South Elementary"....that is not the answer, bonehead!

Barrier concern...."steel-post-and-cable barrier on southbound I-55 is the worst".....OMG...before people complained about crashing & crossing the median, now people complain about not being able to drive in the median...geez, r people just never satisfied?

Judging Obama...plenty of that going around too! :)~

Dangerous barrier: "It would not have happened before the cable."...no, they may have crossed the median into oncoming traffic & been killed, along w/whoever they hit. Again, some are never happy.

Babies in church...this was just rude, a church goer complaining about other church goers...the irony! :)~

Crowd at fire scene....it's Scott City, people r bored! :)~

Iraqi safety....I agree, follow thru is important, or we could just train them, leave them & see if they turn on us like Osama bin Laden.....

Don't punish parents...it's a joint effort people, parents, students & teachers!

-- Posted by Turnip on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 9:56 AM

Judging Obama

this should have been done at the polls , not now .

giving this guy control is like giving a two year old

a shotgun to play with . IMO , we won't last four years

with his type of "leadership" . maybe Americans will

realize he's selling us away before it's too late ,

before we're all wearing the same clothes , getting

the same pay , being good little socialists ...

-- Posted by ..Rick on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 9:56 AM

No Jackson Stimulus…Another case of bad government planning, and you want them to come up with another plan to fix the first plan…gee, sounds so familiar. What do you expect from a government school?

Barrier Concern…One thing they expect is that you would have scheduled maintenance done on your vehicle. If you had, you probably would not have found yourself in that situation. The blame is on you, and only you.

Nice Cable Guy…Good job Cable Guy – Git R Done!

Dangerous Barrier…And if the cable had not been there, they could have crossed over into the oncoming traffic…or they could have stopped in the median. Who knows what could have happened? It is not the cables fault, and Modot was not driving, so who’s fault do you think it would be? Think real hard.

Babies in Church…Oh, pull down your vest and get over yourself. It is not all about how perfect your church experience is.

Crowd at the Fire…No, they did not think THEY were hampering any efforts of the first responders, but they thought everyone else WAS. Fire, flashing lights, sirens – it is human nature to go check it out.

Don’t Punish Parents…Your comment is so ludicrous, that it defies any discussion. I think you are the one who needs an education.

Turnip

what makes u so bubbly today ?

don't u ever have a bad day ??

-- Posted by ..Rick on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 10:31 AM

I wonder why the govt has bailed out AIG twice but has let others fail.......because...AIG has their retirement funds invested and if AIG fails...there goes their old age money. If they had to rely on Social Security they would fix it fast!!!

-- Posted by JAG on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 10:43 AM

Rick, bad days...let's say I have my moments...lol!

why so bubbly today....dunno know, its gonna be a gorgeous day, although i'll be in meetings all afternoon but on the upside i'm having my fav for lunch! Guess I tend to look at the bright side of things........

-- Posted by Turnip on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 10:46 AM

just once i'd like to see u let loose and give somebody

all kinds of hell but u don't...i dunno how u do it!

i just don't see BHO as the great savior as many believe

he is...it's obvious the country is in a tailspin and

has been for a few years--blame it on Bush or whoever--

but i really don't think socialism is the cure all answer .

if this ya-hoo gets re-elected , it will take years and

years to undo the damage he'll do to the country .

Rick...

Your speculating and jumping on the 'hysteria' bandwagon. What damage???

Stop, smell the roses, relax and then look at the picture subjectively. Don't get all caught up in the doom and gloom of cyclist and willy.....they're pessimists!

-- Posted by Theorist on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 12:40 PM

Theorist

i know you are a fan of BHO and that is your right if

you choose to do so ...personally , i don't want to be

a socialist , if there is a bandwagon for that , then i

guess someone will have to make room for me .

BHO admitted during the campaign that he didn't know

what he was doing , there would be problems where we

would have to stop and start all over again ...

what kind of leader is that ? i sure don't want to

give him trillions of dollars for on-the-job training ...

-- Posted by ..Rick on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 12:47 PM

Rick,

When did Obama say "I don't know what I am doing"? What was the context? Was he speaking of making an omelet, or was he referring to his aunt's citizenship?

Did you hear this, did you read it, or are you taking Cyclists et.al. word??

-- Posted by Theorist on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 12:56 PM

Rick:

John McCain admitted that he didn't understand the economy as well as he should. That was enough for me. When someone tells me they are not qualified for a job, I take them at their word.

-- Posted by Ike on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 12:58 PM

Hilleco, Rick and others....

Do you believe our Country is in an economic crisis?

If yes, do you truly believe it was orchestrated by Obama just so he could take your home?

Guys, this is bordering on rediculous....Socialism, by definition, " a system of society or group living in which there is no private property"... Are you really attributed Obama with this????

-- Posted by Theorist on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 1:01 PM

i believe Obama is learning as he goes ...i also believe

we shouldn't be giving him , or anyone else , trillions

of dollars to learn ..

yes , i did hear the man say there would be problems

and bumps in the road that we would have to over come .

btw , Obama , McCain , or no one else will get my home

without a fight ...

-- Posted by ..Rick on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 1:15 PM

Did you hear him say he didn't know what he was doing?

Just a thought....the bumps he might have been referring to, trying to convince Southeast Missourians that he isn't trying to take their home, car, GUN....geez!

-- Posted by Theorist on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 1:24 PM

Rick,

I'd have to say that for the first time I disagree with you (a little). The office of president is impossible to prepare for, name a president that knew it ALL. That's why they have cabinet positions. As far as giving him trillions for "on the job training" thats a whole other story though.

-- Posted by Producer1 on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 1:25 PM

Theorist

i've followed SO for too long to know i'm gonna make a

point with you ...did BHO come out and say he didn't

know what he was doing ? yes he did in a round about

way..i mean , the sun came up in China today , i wasn't

there to see it but i know it did...

please don't insult what little intelligence i have ....

-- Posted by ..Rick on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 1:33 PM

I Wish we had more people that was nice like the (cable-jeep) man. He makes everyone stop and realize that this is what the world should be.

-- Posted by Daisy_thoughts on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 2:44 PM

Rick,

I am not trying, nor did I mean to insult you. I think you are wiser (much) than you let on....and I am trying to prove to you what may be an error in judgement. So, if I offended you, I am sorry.

Hilleco,

Obama cannot change the USA by himself. I think he is wiser than you are giving him credit for, and I think he needs support to administer change, not constant dissension.

-- Posted by Theorist on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 2:55 PM

Ohh Jeebus, what in the blazes is going on in here? Obama said he didn't know what he was doing? Our guns are going to be taken away? For Jeebus sake, post some "hardcore" facts, not assumptions and fearmongering half truths.

Fact: There are millions and Millions of NRA members in the United States that pump millions and millions of dollars into that organization on an annual basis. Obama is NOT going to disarm the public and take our guns away. It's never going to happen. The closests we ever came to the was GWB and the Patriot act, didn't happen then...isn't going to happen now, so stop acting stupid.

-- Posted by Megalomania on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 3:46 PM

Hi boys! Did ya miss me? lol

Gun issue: First of all Cycle always has to b*tch about something...but I agree, it's not gonna happen...too many gun lovers n the good 'ol US of A!

Rick, I don't quite know what ur looking for...but i've been rude a time or two. (lol)

i'm online n a opinion forum w/essentially "characters", people I don't really know and will probably never meet....how upset can one really become...don't get me wrong though.....i can still kick ur *** off! :)~

-- Posted by Turnip on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 4:29 PM

Thank you Socialist for putting those FACTS out there. Here is another FACT you may not have been aware of.

FACT: The vast majority of school bus fatalities in Missouri occur on yellow school busses.

This is a fact just as sure as the 25 other facts you just posted. Lets face it, yellow school busses are obviously rolling death traps and parent who allow their children to ride in these tin cans of mayhem should have their parenting licenses revoked!

Keep those FACTS coming!!!

-- Posted by DADES on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 4:37 PM

I don’t need to check your footnotes socialist; I’m sure all your facts are beyond reproach. I don’t question your facts, just your conclusions.

-- Posted by DADES on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 5:16 PM

Megalo,

What is your favorite brand of gin?

I know that it is old and un-hip, but I love Beefeaters.

In merry ol' England when one expresses their fondness for a nationalized beverage like Beefeaters, I would imagine that they are greeted with the American equivilant of "Bud Lite rulez!".

Anyhoo. We are both England culture aficiondos. What is YOUR favorite brand of gin?

And, where, in your opinion, is the best place in Cape or the surrounding area, to buy and enjoy a real Martini?

-- Posted by Lumpy on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 6:02 PM

I really liked this one:

FACT: Barack Obama has endorsed a 500% increase in the federal excise tax on firearms and ammunition.9

it's about time some other "group" starting footing the bills....all of that "reckless behavior" affects my insurance rates as well....dontchaknow!

and how convenient, add add'l taxes & only "republicans" could afford them.....lol!

TENT CITIES IN AMERICA?

I browsed some info last night that I found staggering about the amt. of tent cities going up across America, how can u all not see this as a problem for our society?

Schwartzenneger (sp) closed one in CA,it was on the fair grounds, supposedly the state is making arrangements for those residents....the residents say they do it cuz their proud and don't want a handout, they gambled and lost and they have the right to tent...what do you all think?

WOW...talk about a blast from the past......

-- Posted by Turnip on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 6:40 PM

Turnip

i think we've always had tent cities in some form or

another...i believe they were called communes at one

time back in the '60s and '70s ...i'm not surprised

to see more growing due to the economic mess we are in

at the present ..CNN website had an article about folks

who are living in there SUV's now because of hard times.

-- Posted by ..Rick on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 6:56 PM

Lumpy,

LOL! I can tell you a lot of stories about beefeaters gin, unfortunately...most of those nights I wouldn't want to re-live. (something about a pitcher of Beefeaters and Oj, passing out on the gravel parking lot of a strip club, and waking up with rocks stuck to my forehead)

BUT probably one of the best "drunks" I've been on was with a round of homemade sloe gin. I was one of three wet pigs in an irish pub on St. Patricks day.

However, as my experiences in alcohol sharpened my taste buds, I'd settled on Tanqueray or Gordon's. Best Martini's in Cape Girardeau? Hmmm...I hate to say it, but probably Molly's.

Best Martini I've ever had in my life? Probably a "classic" that I had at the Grand Hyatt in Buckhead. Additionally, "Martini's on Water" in Peoria, Illinois makes high quality martini's of mini varieties.

Now, that all being said...I haven't had a nip in nearly 8-years. My stomach can't handle it, and my physician keeps dibs on my liver.

-- Posted by Megalomania on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 7:24 PM

TENT CITIES IN AMERICA?:

Turnip, that's old hat and passe'. I brought this up about a year ago. Here's a pointer for you. I've engaged all these topics. And really...it isn't going to get you anything more than chewed out, laughed at, hated, mocked, banned, called crazy, or a liberal. It's really not worth the pain and anguish and the blah, blah, blah. Sure...once in a while, I'll still get my dander up, but overall...I just pass up most of the rubbish unless it hits a hot button with me.

No no, the sloe gin night was the three wet pigs night in an Irish pub. The parking lot night was after straight beefeaters and Orange Juice (a pitcher of it, a BIG pitcher of it)

Of course there was also the night I fell asleep on the hood of someone's car after drinking 21 kamikazes at the Hush Puppy (the original one).

Meanwhile, Palin is blaming Her loss during the McPiglin campaign due to the inability to find someone in the McCain campaign to pray with her. I knew it! McCain is a heathen!

-- Posted by Megalomania on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 7:48 PM

Megalo,

I agree about Mollie's being the best classic martini in town.

If you get a chance, go to Schock's Pub in Scott City and enjoy their classic martini. I taught them how to make it.

Sloe gin is nasty ol' chap. Tanqueray is not terrible. Gordon's is rot gut, but they keep the faith in that they don't endorse any ***** sweet, apple/crapple cocktails made with gin.

If it's not Beefeaters, I like Bombay Sapphire.

-- Posted by Lumpy on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 7:48 PM

...if we hold out long enough, Ol' Lumpy will b paying people to attend the convention......lol!

Turnip , mentioning tent cities doesn't make u a liberal or any such nonsense as all that ...

i remember last month when megomania or whoever it is

said they were leaving SO and gave their opinion of

everyone who participated in SO..

here we are a month later and the bullshat continues

to spout out of the mouth of the nitwit ...

BTW , i was , and proberly still am , in a terrible mood this morning ...this is why i was giving u shat

about being sooo bubbly...

-- Posted by ..Rick on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 7:56 PM

"Sloe gin is nasty ol' chap. Tanqueray is not terrible. Gordon's is rot gut," (Probably the reason I gave up drinking.)

" but they keep the faith in that they don't endorse any ***** sweet, apple/crapple cocktails made with gin." (Yes, It's definately all about keeping the faith when it comes to Martini's.)

If it's not Beefeaters, I like Bombay Sapphire. (Bombay was just a bit too fancy for me)

That being said, I must be honest with you mate. I've always been more of a Tullamore Dew or a Bushmills guy. That...chased down with a cold Miller Light Draft and I used to be on a carpenter cloud 9.

Willy...

You are exhibiting radically irrational behaviour.... by definition "Irrational behaviors of individuals include taking offense or becoming angry about a situation that has not yet occurred"

Sound familiar?

Did you read my post from last night? Obviously not since you are still wildly speculating incorrectly!

-- Posted by Theorist on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 9:31 PM

My conclusion is this administration will make criminals of otherwise law-abiding citizens when it comes to Second Amendment issues.

It is just around the corner.

but i believe you all are correct , there could be blood

shed if things continue as they are...

lumpy, all bs aside, I hope u have a safe trip tommorow...

Willy, I wouldn't go back and read the post last night, i checked it to see if u pulled a fast one and it was not pretty....oh, bigdog tore into ur ars...lol!

Rick, sticks n stones....most don't attack me, they just ignore me.......hope ur day got better! :)

-- Posted by Turnip on Thu, Mar 26, 2009, at 10:09 PM

Lumpy,

I really do appreciate the invite, and if I was 100% I would. We all have influenza, so I wouldn't want to contaminate you. The way I feel right now, I may even end up at the doctor's office again tomorrow myself. I'd better stay home and rest up.

Wow! I sound like a pathetic excuse machine.
