Speak Out 4/7/09

Tuesday, April 7, 2009

Great administrator

JACKSON School District is losing a great administrator. Dr. Andrew Rogers will be missed as a wonderful role model for our children. He has served our country, our community and our students well. It is a shame that he will be leaving.

Narrow definition

I read where state Sen. Jason Crowell wants "welfare recipients" tested for drugs. Is it safe to assume his definition of welfare recipients is a narrow one and does not include the corporate class?

Replace worn flags

I would like to remind businesses, hospitals, banks, those in charge of the cross display near the interstate, citizens and homeowners that torn and tattered U.S. flags need to be replaced. The American Legion and VFW can properly and respectfully dispose of the old flags, so please donate those that are showing signs of wear and have completed their time of service by flying so beautifully.

Making laws

SO what do we call a country where the courts and judges make the laws and the elected representatives represent special interests? America.

Health care help

PLEASE help them. President Obama, the business community is begging you to free them from their health care burden.

Illegal meeting

A couple of weeks ago I was waiting for the elevator on the first floor of the Cape Girardeau County administration building. I overheard two men discussing whether the county should move forward with chip and seal on our county roads. I turned the corner to see who the two men were. To my surprise it was commissioners Paul Koeper and Gerald Jones. Has the county commission learned anything over the last year? Evidently not. Two commissioners cannot discuss any public matters without posting an agenda and informing the public of a meeting. We might as well vote all of the elected officials out and put a charter form of government in its place.

President on point

PRESIDENT Obama's trip to the G-20 summit proved out to be better than expected. The president handled himself and his world counterparts well. I was able to hear him talk to them about the world's financial problems as well as America's financial problems. He was on point and stayed with the topic. For that, he was praised by the majority of the world's leaders and was given much respect by those in attendance. He has accomplished more in this one trip than George Bush did in eight years. What does that tell me? I can already tell President Obama is much more in tune with the world's economics and much smarter than Bush. President Obama shows that we need dialogue with the other world countries. It is not about showing who has the best military and who can fight a no-win war and wasting lives. I know the other world leaders have already given President Obama respect that the previous administration never earned. All America needs to do is stick with the new president. He will not lead us wrong. Congrats to the new face of America. It is shining brightly already. This is what a superpower's president should be acting like.

Less safe now

ALL you have to do is Google Missouri militia and survivalist groups and you will see that the squashing of the Missouri State Highway Patrol about them by self-proclaimed conservatives made each Missourian less safe.

Storm fears

I truly feel for children with storm phobias. I am not a child anymore, but I know the fear since the ice storm of 2007 in Jackson, the terrible flood five weeks later and the hail. Now every time a cloud comes up with possible wind damage and heavy rain, I know the horror that comes from the sounds. You tell yourself it's going to be OK, God is going to take care of us, but the sound is still there. I still fear heavy wind because I am still trying to get the ice damage cleaned up so it will not crash through windows or my roof. Kids, you are not alone, I feel for you. This feeling is very real and not comfortable.

It's a tax increase

DESPITE the acceptance and gleeful joy of many, a tobacco tax is by definition a tax which our president supports and which targets lower-income citizens. This is a reversal of his statements that there would be no taxes raised for the less-wealthy. According to the Heritage Foundation: "A tobacco tax disproportionately burdens low-income Americans, lacks long-term stability ... . With the number of smokers already declining, a tobacco tax would further reduce the number of smokers, thereby eroding the funding source. To produce the revenue that Congress needs to fund SCHIP expansion through such a tax would require 22.4 million new smokers by 2017." Is there anyone who thinks a family with over $70,000 cannot afford insurance premiums? Is there anyone who logically believes this is not about money as well as broken campaign promises? What will be the justification for the next I-won't-raise-taxes tax increases? Same old politics, different party?

Political control

WHAT would be the motivation for the Obama administration to refuse repayment from banks of TARP funds? If the president really wants the economy to recover, you would think he would welcome the repayment of millions of dollars. But if he has political motivations and wants to exert political control over the banking sector, he would have to force the banks to keep the money so he can dictate their banking policy. This foray into fascism should scare the hell out of everyone.

Just the opposite

DARN it. Sometimes I think David Limbaugh is just on a lengthy string of bad luck. His most recent column took President Obama's Justice Department to task for allegedly becoming politicized. However, just a few days earlier, Democrat Attorney General Eric Holder threw out the charges in a case whereby Republican U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens had been the victim of prosecutorial misconduct by the Bush Justice Department, thus proving just the opposite of Limbaugh's thesis. Folks, it's getting to the point that I'm beginning to believe the content of Limbaugh's columns is being leaked to the Obama administration so that it can launch a virtual pre-emptive strike and destroy the truth of Limbaugh's polarizing point of view.

Making history

I never thought I'd be saying this, but I couldn't care less that my children and grandchildren and many more generations to come are going to have to pay for President Obama's massive spending. Why? Because the majority of people who voted him in were first-time voters who were sold on the idea of making history, along with young college adults and workers. So, my dear children, welcome to the real world. When you get older and Mommy and Daddy can no longer support your spending and you're working several jobs to make ends meat, remember you were part of history. Congratulations.

Unsupervised children

I would like to thank the parks and recreation department for sponsoring the Easter egg hunt at Capaha Park. The department did an outstanding job, and I realize it put a lot of time into the event. However, the parents who let their children run around unsupervised ruined the day for many of us. My children and nephews were in the youngest age group, so we waited for our turn to hunt with others their age. When our turn came, children and teenagers much older than mine ran to get eggs and nearly knocked the small children to the ground. My 2-year-old did not get any eggs. I was disappointed, as were many other parents.

Narrow definition -- this commenter apparently feels that drug testing is a bad thing. How is helping those in need steer away from drug usage wrong. The irony is that those folks they are insulting have probably been tested for drugs in pre-employment many times before. Sometimes we get it backards.

Making laws -- well, we elect them. Gawd, I love this country.

Illegal meeting -- if that is the intent and purpose of the Sunshine Law then we are out of our minds. Our leaders should collaborate and discuss the serious issues of our times. To expect less is ludicrous. And quit spying on people, that's rude.

President on point -- whatever. The mostly Socialist European societies are licking their chops, sucking the blood out of the American turnip. It looks like we've agreed to dump billions more of our hard earned money into the International Monetary Fund and gained very little else. Europe should be concerned that as we destroy our ability to create wealth and turn our historic success into mediocrity, that the global piggy bank will empty. This guilt trip, our worldly angst over being strong, our hand wringing under the allusion of not being liked is a mole hill considering the mountain of grief we suffer as we buckle under our own weight. Our president needs to lead from strength not appease from weakness.

Narrow definition- The corparate class work and make their own money so they can use it for what they want to. Those receiving welfare from my tax money should use it for what it"s intended their nessities like food and rent not to support their bad habits.

-- Posted by newman90 on Tue, Apr 7, 2009, at 7:39 AM

drug testing is wrong...it's suppose to be innocent until proven guilty....drug testing means guilty until proven innocent , it's backward , it's wrong , it's unconstitutional ...

-- Posted by ..Rick on Tue, Apr 7, 2009, at 7:43 AM

Good morning. Nice to see u, Rick! :o)

Drug testing/welfare recipients: Not sure it's unconstitutional, considering u sign up for the benefits therefore making urself applicable to all rules/regulation imposed by DFS. I do think it's stupid to assume anyone on "welfare" could support a substantial habit of any kind. Perhaps they should have to be non-smokers too, after all, if I can barely afford my own why should I help u pay for yours, right? Hell, let's give 'em breathilizers too! Seems a tad ridiculous.

Health care help...Now this topic puzzles me. business owners & health care? I've had business owners' tell me it's b/c of cost many don't provide "decent" coverage. Or is it b/c of their "practices" such as hiring "at risk" employees, not having drug screenings, there options r limited. I'm so confused as to who to blame.

Sunshine law & Illegal meeting...r u for real? Does the sunshine law "state" two people can't have a discussion? I think that's ridiculous, I hold meetings all the time, I speak to individuals on my board seperately about issues, it's not like we could decide anything w/o a vote. I think this is going to far....

Less safe now....whatever! I guess b/c they admitted it should not have been "leaked" everyone forgot about the info. Besides these "groups" are no more a threat now then they were before.

It's a tax increase...JUMEMY, did u submit this? :o)~

Political control...this is news to me..."Obama administration to refuse repayment from banks of TARP funds"....I hadn't heard this yet!

Making history...good point, BUT with that being said I think the people he was able to reach & as a result got involved, took a stand and participated n the process is pretty neat in itself.

Unsupervised children....WHAT....never heard of such a thing! LOL! look, u might as well teach ur children now that there are many people in this world who are thoughtless & rude. However, I'd have tripped a few "teens" along the way! Cuz' after all I lead by example...lol! :o)~ Now with that said, I'm off to Wallyworld....lookout! ;o)~

-- Posted by Turnip on Tue, Apr 7, 2009, at 8:45 AM

one more thing on drug testing...if it's decided to drug test then everyone associated with welfare should be tested ...from the head of administration right on down to welfare recipients...

Melange,

Unfortunately, there are ways around ADA as well as EEOC as it is next to impossible to prove that an individual was not hired because of this.

Also as to another post, many if not all state workers are subject to random drug tests.

-- Posted by BCStoned on Tue, Apr 7, 2009, at 11:20 AM

Well....it is nice to know you are all thinking about me even when I haven't been posting!

First of all Willy, Russian people don't smile out of politeness. Visa versa, it is considered to be bad to smile without any significant reasons, they also don't smile at strangers...(you!)

Second....She??? Where do you get this? You all have me portrayed as some teenage school girl...wrong!

-- Posted by Theorist on Tue, Apr 7, 2009, at 11:25 AM

MeLange, now settle down there, girl...no ars kicking needed. I meant along the lines of hiring ex-cons, drug-users. Basically referencing a personal employer that did not screen his employees at all and had trouble getting decent health ins. of course this could just be him being cheap. I would never make a reference as the one u mentioned! :o)

-- Posted by Turnip on Tue, Apr 7, 2009, at 11:32 AM

My has world's economies changed in the past two years. Number 1.US 2.Japan 3.Germany 4.Great Britain 5.China, now the US is still number 1 followed by 2.Japan 3.China 4.Germany. Great Britain has fallen to seventh passed even by California. Great Britain is on the verge of bankruptcy.

According to Reuters, GM is in intense bankruptcy preparations.

Ahhhh....

"you don't appear well versed on anything"...from the mouths of babes....

Perhaps you missed the lecture on ethics?

Or did you forget......

Cyclist...

Maybe I just possess what you lack, "compassion"!

-- Posted by Theorist on Tue, Apr 7, 2009, at 12:05 PM

Cycle, First of all I understand ur point as a business owner but that's not "great" insurance. I guess if u pay all (employee/dependents) the premiums it would be. Most of those deductibles are probably per person, most "healthy" people don't even come close to that in a year.

RE: Obama's healthcare plan: I'm not saying it's the best solution but it's a start. The reforms u mentioned never happened. In comparison to other countries with similiar insurance, I would like to see an example made that fits, a country that is "CURRENTLY PAR" to the US, then and only then will u convince me it won't work.

-- Posted by Turnip on Tue, Apr 7, 2009, at 12:09 PM

Actually...Just...you mentioned being in the military...and though you may no longer be active duty, I find it odd that you have just tossed all the "military ethics and conflicts" training out the window.

Perhaps you didn't understand, or maybe you were always rebellious....so be it.

Perhaps someday, you will face reality.

MeLange,

RE: Sunshine Law

I was a lil' misinformed in regards to who it applied to. But the comment says she overheard Paul Koeper and Gerald Jones discussing chip n seal, that's all. these two men can't go forth with chip n seal based on "this" discussion, that's all I am saying. And if the law applies to two men speaking about a item on a agenda when they pass each other in the hall in a public place, I think that's ridiculous! Perhaps Koeper didn't understand a minor detail, does a public meeting need to be help? People can blow things out of proportion/exaggerate, with anything; look at JUMEMY! :o)~

At the risk of another "threat"...j/k; I think u may be a lil' irritable today...but YOU ARE DOING GREAT, SMOKE-FREE IS THE WAY TO BE! :o)

-- Posted by Turnip on Tue, Apr 7, 2009, at 12:33 PM

Cycle, true to form...u would rather "attack" me than enlighten me...u big ol' fuzzy teddy bear you....

anyways, to answer your questions, no I have not been a business owner, nor have I ever had to deal with payroll or insurance for employees. Furthermore, it is my responsiblity to provide health insurance for my family, so I know a thing or two about that. If it is so "hard" for me to understand ur position why can't u see that of your "employees"? If it is so **** difficult, why not b thrilled the "gub" is gonna do it for you.

btw, still waiting for an example, anyone......

-- Posted by Turnip on Tue, Apr 7, 2009, at 12:46 PM

Oh..wait a minute...does hiring maids/lawn care workers, a fine "POOLMAN" count? They come from those "agencies" though....they take care of all that "paperwork"! lol! ;o)~

-- Posted by Turnip on Tue, Apr 7, 2009, at 12:51 PM

JUMEMY, u make this too ez.....I'll post the whole thing in case u can't see it....:o)~

The President's teleprompter announced a universal health care plan entitled the "Obama Health and Survivability - Horrendous Inevitable Taxes (OHSHIT)" plan.

"Today, I am announcing OHSHIT, which will, errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, uhmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, ensure that all Americans, Kenyans, Indonesians, and the others in our 57 States ... [pause] err ... receive the Constitutionally mandated right to .... errrrrrr ... free, universal health care. What? It's not in the Constitution? Really? Errrrrr, uhmmmmmmm, well it should be. Just like government authority to control the private ... [pause] errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr .... sector. Anyway, I'm appointing my VP's hair plugs to oversee the implementation of OHSHIT."

The VP's hair plugs said, "When FDR was holding his fireside chats in 1622, I watched him on television as I made my way thru the Gulf of Mexico on the Nina Pinanta en route to Plymouth Chrysler Rock. FDR had to overcome a tremendous inheritied crisis which was left by George Bush. What? George Bush wasn't President prior to FDR? Well, who caused the crisis? Never mind - not important. I mean, come on, we've got the first articulate, clean African-American, and we should be proud to fully embrace this OHSHIT plan."

The plan will be paid for by targetting the homeless thru the largest ever tax increase on cardboard boxes and cap and trade limitations on farting in the park.

I did post a question and I appreciate the response...I still think it's ridiculous!

Rick, so what u been up to/where ya been?

-- Posted by Turnip on Tue, Apr 7, 2009, at 1:32 PM

JUMEMY, I have no idea what u r talking about in reference to Luda; I assume it was something I said. However, I do like Ludacris, never heard of the YOungbloodz. I'll let u be the judge of my IQ! btw, I refuse to argue with you anymore...REFUSE! :o) btw, is my nose to big? lol

-- Posted by Turnip on Tue, Apr 7, 2009, at 1:36 PM

Melange,

Good luck with the nonsmoking. I quit about forty years ago. As with any addiction, I suppose the risk of relapse is always present to one extent or the other for some anyway. I recently learned that a good friend of mine who had managed to quit for almost two years has started smoking again; hard to understand. I guess it pays to never let your guard down. Hope you don't have such problems.

-- Posted by RA on Tue, Apr 7, 2009, at 1:39 PM

MeLange...this is what I posted originally...

Sunshine law & Illegal meeting...r u for real? Does the sunshine law "state" two people can't have a discussion?

-- Posted by Turnip on Tue, Apr 7, 2009, at 8:45 AM

This was the question:

Does the sunshine law "state" two people can't have a discussion?

The site provided said it does, right? The law prohibits two commisioners from talking about the agenda in the hallway of a public bldg. Got it. I think that is silly; which was my point in saying that it's not like they could have "decided" anything w/o a vote; perhaps Koeper just had a simple question to ask in regards to chip/seal and that he shouldn't have to have a public meeting for that, that only stalls the "process" but I understand it is the law, I guess I just don't agree with it.

-- Posted by Turnip on Tue, Apr 7, 2009, at 1:46 PM

I don't think it is necessarily a bad thing that those in the military question the wisdom or leadership of the civilian or military leadership of their country. History is replete with examples mistakes and atrocities which can come about by blindly following orders.

Just Me posted from yesterday:

Do I believe that Americans will accept a change to Socialism all at once. No, but the masses are prone to accepting what they're fed. An uninformed electorate is a lot like boiling a frog ... if you throw it in boiling water it'll jump out, but just put it in warm water and slowly turn up the heat.

-- Posted by Just_Me_and_My_Opinion on Mon, Apr 6, 2009, at 4:51 PM

Excellent Analogy!!! And you're absolutely right! Every time we pass another law, we give away a freedom. . .slowly turning up the heat so to speak. But your fears of the US succumbing to a socialist agenda are predicated on an "uninformed electorate." You assume that just because another person believes differently than you that the person must be uninformed and you have taken it upon yourself to educate us. But I don't consider the electorate uninformed. I consider it to be an amalgam of different experiences, backgrounds and educations, which has led some of them to a conclusion that is at odds with your current tenets. Just because you have viewed the "facts" and have come to a different conclusion than someone else does not make you smarter or "right," it just means you plugged the same numbers into different equations and have come to separate solutions. As to who's equation is actually correct...only time will tell.

Please feel free to continue to post your "facts," I will continue to draw my own conclusions from them.

Yesterday Turnip wrote; "I think that was Wayne's World; they were too "chique" to use terms like that! :)

That was a quote from the Beuller's principle's secretary, whenever they (the principle and the secretary) were discussing Ferris' popularity amongst the various factions of the student body. She made a list of jocks, geeks, potheads, sluts, etc and said "they all think he's a righteous dude".

It sounds funnier in the movie than it reads here.

My favorite Wayne's World quote is...

"Tiny: Wanye! How you doin'?

Wayne Campbell: Hey Tiny, who's playing today?

Tiny: Jolly Green Giants and the ****** Beatles.

Wayne Campbell: ****** Beatles? Are they any good?

Tiny: They suck!

Wayne Campbell: Then it's not just a clever name.

MeLange, I don't think I have watched it all the way thru so I guess I must feel the same way about slap-stick.
