Speak Out 6/16/09

Tuesday, June 16, 2009

4-H talent

THE youths and sponsors who went to 4-H State Congress are to be commended. It looks as though the Southeast region will be well-represented by some talented youths.

Accident spot

THANK you to the Cape Girardeau Police Department for its efforts enforcing the speed limit on Mount Auburn Road. It's good to see the police out there. Mount Auburn is a dangerous place to drive too fast. Today I witnessed the fourth wreck in six months in exactly the same spot on Mount Auburn, right at the bottom of the hill at the corner of Mount Auburn and Wisteria. Please slow down, people. I am tired of making 911 calls and assisting injured drivers.

Downtown trash

GRADUALLY and imperceptibly Cape Girardeau is experiencing "garbagization." The riverfront and downtown area are an eyesore on weekends when most tourists are visiting. All along Broadway and Independence streets we can now see garbage strewn here and there.

Lumpy as a carry over from yesterday; my frustration about the police state we are getting swallowed by and I'm pretty sure your frustration as well goes something like this analogy.

I beat on my neighbors door and shout "danger,get out, your house is on fire." "No it's not he says." "But it is on fire I say, there's smoke and flames coming out of your roof." "That doesn't necessarily mean my house is on fire.It's normal to have smoke and flames coming out of a roof. That happens to houses all the time and by the way you're just a conspiracy theorist and I don't believe in conspiracies. I'll only believe my house is on fire if an expert on FOX or CNN or someone from the government tells me it's on fire and then I'll get my family out.And please don't nag me any more, cause you're crazy."

"But if your house burns down my house will burn down too." " What's the matter with you neighbor, don't you love America? My house is not on fire. You must be with al qaeda"

4-H talent: Enjoy it, be proud, and support it folks. It's the last line of Cape Girardeau County's heritage that hasn't been "soft creamed" by the yuppie newbies who have moved to town.

Accident spot: Wouldn't be a problem if it was back to two lane, and we didn't have as many folks coming in to town.

Downtown trash: Thank Parsnips! She's thrilled all the theaters are closed down on Broadway. Here's an idea, put some more HUD housing and homeless shelters down there. That'll REALLY spruce things up. Safe place for kids to ride trikes there too.

Politics aside, Letterman's joke was unacceptable. I believe politicians' children should be left alone if they don't involve themselves in policy etc. Even if then, this type of "joke" is beyond the pale.

He has apologized, whatever the motivation or degree of sincerity and that should be the end. I don't think any of them are all that funny, so I don't watch them.

ABC TURNS PROGRAMMING OVER TO OBAMA; NEWS TO BE ANCHORED FROM INSIDE WHITE HOUSE

This is the headline on Drudge this morning.

Earth to Drudge...The White House,CIA, NSA,Pentagon, and other assorted New World Order think tanks of elites have been "programming" the public for decades. We do not have an independent main stream media.

And just like the two political party wings pretending to be different we also get FOX and CNN pretending to be different. If fact they are just two different wings on the same buzzard. Anderson Cooper interned with the CIA after college he says. From watching his "program", it wouldn't be much of a stretch to say that he is still not working for them.

-- Posted by Thought Criminal on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 9:01 AM

I never understood why you were banned and I read all of the posts in which you made your intentions clear.

I learned long ago from another poster to not use my real name or email address though I realize a determined effort could locate my location if not my identity.

Were you contacted by City, County, State or Federal?

-- Posted by RA on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 10:18 AM

Me'Lange,

Actions can have consequences and everyone should keep that in mind. Some are more easily intimidated than others, but when someone such as NW comes on here beating his chest and talking trash then he really should be able to handle what little was directed at him.

-- Posted by RA on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 11:01 AM

YCCM,

I think you would agree that it is wrong for any news organization of any political persuasion to be schmoozing with government officials, especially the president. The first amendment was not written in order for the press to be parrot mouth-pieces of the 3 branches of government.

The White House correspondence and the Grid Iron dinners are cases in point. It's hard to be yucking it up with the prez on a Sat. night and then report aggressively on Mon. You won't get invited back to the White House and you won't have a job very long.

There is so much "off the record" conversation with government officials by the MSM, that real investigative reporting has long ago died. When you become good buddies with the people about whom you report, there is no critical fact finding. The White House just sends a script down to the news rooms and the mockingbirds dutifully read it. That's another reason why people like I have so many so called conspiracy theories. The news can not be trusted any more than government officials.

Sure they will throw in a provocative story from time to time in order to feed some red meat to the brain dead public so the public, thinking they have been informed, can scream at each other on the gab shows. But the MSN hardly ever report on the story behind the story. For that you have to go to the alternative media who have not been compromised by fame and fortune.

That's why true critical thinking about complex issues that affect our lives and our freedom sound so crazy and conspiratorial. Because the people who should be digging in to those complex stories are negligent, complicit or both and even white washing what is really going on. They are pathetic.

Good afternoon! ☻

4-H talent...☻

Accident spot...yikes, I wonder if making it four lanes has anything to do with it?

Downtown trash...perhaps someone needs to adopt a 'street' or riverfront?

That's it, there were 12 yesterday and only 3 today! geez....

I am not sure how you disagree in that I made no mention of me limiting comments.

Megalo, why on earth are you blaming me for trash in the downtown Cape area? I don't live there. Seems to me YOU have spent an awful lot of time 'sniffin' around down there...next time take a stick/trash bag & kill two birds with one stone! ☻

-- Posted by Turnip on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 12:53 PM

Here's another dozy of a story form the Washington Times. Headline below.

Federal Reserve to gain power under plan

First paragraph:

The Federal Reserve, already arguably the most powerful agency in the U.S. government, will get sweeping new authority to regulate any company whose failure could endanger the U.S. economy and markets under the Obama administration's regulatory overhaul plan.

This is incredible in so many ways. First off the "reporter" is wrong when he says the Federal Reserve is a government agency. They are not, because the Federal Reserve is a private bank and does what it wants. They tell Obama what to do. This is fascism at its finest. They don't even attempt to hide the tyranny any longer. This country is in extreme danger and that is no conspiracy talk.

UCMe, I don't care what I post, fact is, it's not up to you! If YOU come to my house to 'have a talk' with ME, I'M gonna ring YOUR bell. ☻ Stop threatening people!

-- Posted by Turnip on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 1:06 PM

Mrs. Palin's daughter. I still won't watch the guy (because he just isn't funny), but he did show some class. Albeit belated and it appeared only because of the pressure.

-- Posted by YouCannotCensorMe on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 8:20 AM

Yes, I appreciate his class and apology. Now, if we could just get Mrs. Palin to show some class about, well, anything.....Laughing.

-- Posted by Theorist on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 1:15 PM

I'm more PO'd about being banned. The Warbler loves to censor...

-- Posted by YouCannotCensorMe on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 10:07 AM

If you are insinuating that I had you censored, you are very wrong (nothing new there). I have no need to have you censored, I enjoy the way you dig yourself into a hole.

I suspect, that the person you were threatening, made a complaint. Just my hunch of course, but I can honestly say, I have never hit the exclamation point. Though you embarrass yourself often, doesn't bother me...laughing!

-- Posted by Theorist on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 1:24 PM

UCMe, First question? Did you submit the letter OpNo referenced?

Second..as usual you are blowing things out of proportion. I don't agree with either one of you. I most certainly would not ring your bell, initially...but once I told you to 'bite me', then what? You would say "OK, I just wanted to let you know in person I don't agree with you" & walk away....whatever. Some people can't defend themselves, they notify the proper authorities.

-- Posted by Turnip on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 1:25 PM

You can "say" you wanted to "talk", but it sounded like a threat (and I believe it was intended to sound that way). I would have called it in if it was directed at me (lots of crazy people out there as has been proven yet again the last couple of weeks).

-- Posted by concerned4all on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 1:27 PM

Jumanji,

Lets get this straight. You are the most disrespectful, pedantic poster on here. Period. I will not debate with you because you are incapable of listening. I suspect you lack apathy, but since I do not know you personally, will not accuse you of that as well. I have nothing to say to you, and couldn't care less what you are blubbering on about.

Close to China....why that's just precious. When you feel you can carry on an intelligent conversation (requires listening), I will consider giving you a second chance.

Have a great day!

-- Posted by Theorist on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 1:42 PM

Oh, and just one more thing...I hope you do find out who censored you. Because your head held in shame for being wrong again, well, then you wouldn't acknowledge your error, so what's the point!

-- Posted by Theorist on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 1:44 PM

Theorist,

I would be truly interested to know why you do not feel that Sarah Palin "has no class".

-- Posted by RA on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 2:03 PM

I am not defending the raping of boys and girls, you nuttybuddy. I am defending the right for OpNo to make a point by saying 'How would you like it if.....see the word IF..his point was the rapings of civilians, btw reportedly YOUNG GIRLS by US soldiers in the Middle East, actually all the way thru history. As stated, war is brutal for EVERYONE involved.

btw, carrying on with our ridiculous 'scenario'; I would chase you down, ring your bell & take your camera. Destroy the film/disc/phone, whichever applies. Pay my assualt fine/property damage fees and laugh my ars off out of court. ☻

IF you got away from my dogs, then I would probably consult my attorney and get you for slander/liable and make you pay me. It's the American way. oflmao

-- Posted by Turnip on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 2:22 PM

Could someone please go back and find the alleged post & enter it into Evidence? I just don't have the time. Perhaps someone who has some 'inside connections' with Johnlaw? Wheels you've been awfully quiet. ☺

-- Posted by Turnip on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 2:35 PM

Thanks, although I must admit I'm skeptical of it's authenticity, I don't normally allow the assailants to provide evidence in my court. esp. ones with a history of making shat up.

Good news everybody!

I got that part I been working on in the big Dyslectic Actors' Guild's production of Bitty Bitty Chang Chang!

I propose that each party involved schedule a double elimination thumb war tournament. The loser has to stand in front of the old Federal building on one leg with a cat on their head singing "Mr Bo'Jangles" at the top of their lungs. The winner gets a box of Rice-a-Roni and the XYZ book from the 1986 edition of the Encyclopedia Britanica.

TripleS --

Sarah Palin has no class because she allowed her daughter to shack up with her boyfriend in the Palin home. He moved into Bristol's bedroom. clothes and all, and stayed there for months. I guess the governor thought it would be okay since they practiced abstinence.

-- Posted by grisgris on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 3:42 PM

I'm just now coming in on this little day-time drama you guys have going on here and I'll tell ya, it is hilarious.

I find it intriguing when people post on here with a feeling of anonymity, and the second someone calls them to task on their post they disappear, with no accountability for their comments. Everyone has big britches when no one knows who you are.

Imagine if OpNo would have been behind you in Wal-Mart, and made the exact same comment with your spouse and children standing there. Would you ask him the point of his comment? No, he would have made it through the first couple of lines and someone would have decked him.

Some people just need to learn. If you can't say it to someones face dont post it on here.

-- Posted by Producer1 on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 3:42 PM

No Me'Lange I am not joking about the Federal Reserve being private.Wikipedia says it is quasi public and quasi private. In reality it is more like 99.999% private.It is a word game to say it is public at all other than the president appoints the chairman who is chosen from a list of people supplied by....you guessed it, the Federal Reserve. The chairman is paraded before congress time to time to give the impression that the congress has some say.

The Federal Reserve answers to no one and does what it wants. It has never been audited. Ron Paul has introduced a bill to audit the Fed. He has over 200 co-signers.Jo Ann Emerson apparently doesn't care what the Fed's books look like cause she hasn't signed on.

Listen to former Fed chairman Alan Greenspan ( Husband of NBC's Andrea Mitchell by the way) own words and tell me if he doesn't believe they are above any law in this country. He says it doesn't matter what the president thinks. Greenspan was interviewed on PBS. Skip forward to the 7:40 mark or you will fall asleep.

-- Posted by Thought Criminal on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 4:00 PM

grisgris,

I don't know if doing something some might consider "ill advised", "stupid", "immoral" or a variety of other things such as you described would color every aspect of a person's life and actions to preclude them from having "some class about, well, anything". I never cease to be amazed at how judgmental some people can be.

I would still like to know Theorist's rationale.

-- Posted by RA on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 4:04 PM

Not really that important, just curious. Some seem to have very "flexible" standards depending on their political persuasion; certainly not Theorist, but some.

-- Posted by RA on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 4:20 PM

Also Me"lange check out Aaron Russo's brilliant video about the Federal Reserve and the IRS when you get a chance.

He made the video in a documentary style that I promise you is compelling and not at all boring. They showed it on the sold out big screen for a week here in Austin a few years ago (before this current money crisis )and people were applauding with their jaws dropped open. It is a masterpiece video called America Freedom to Fascism. http://video.google.com/videoplay?docid=...

-- Posted by Thought Criminal on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 4:29 PM

Me'Lange,

Now don't you think that was a little "catty" for even you? The question was not about her potential as Vice President, it was about "class".

Some people are always getting on here sounding all sanctimonious and telling us knuckle dragers we should be more "open minded" and less "judgmental" and so on until it comes to someone with whom they disagree with politically.

I could say more, but I am not as mean spirited as some and it would really be just too easy.

Well said, you beat me to the punch

-- Posted by Producer1 on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 4:55 PM

I don't think so Mel. Here's a short answer. Having a private central bank is one of the main reasons our economy is so screwed up. This country ( except for the industrialists and big bankers ) fought the establishment of a central bank until 1913 for a reason. A central bank is one of the planks of the communist manifesto.

I think having an independent central bank is just as dangerous as having and independent military.

Another brilliant history of money and banking is the video the Money Masters. This video should be shown on the History Channel so more people could see it. Hmmmm...I wonder why that hasn't happened? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QlIhhYGuj...

-- Posted by Thought Criminal on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 5:10 PM

Me'Lange,

Though you will never admit it, possibly even to yourself, I think there may also be a little jealousy and envy mixed in there somewhere.

Also from the quality of your last post, you may just need a nap.

-- Posted by RA on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 5:17 PM

I didn't vote for McCain or Obama and wasn't too impressed with Sarah Palin except she was smokin hot and liked guns, hunting & fishing. All that was lacking was owning a liquor store.

But I always thought Palin should have jumped back on the people ridiculing her on SNL about seeing Russia from Alaska as having foreign policy experience.

If it would have been me,when she appeared on SNL I would have said at least I wasn't born in a foreign country. Now that would have been funny.

I saw a bumper sticker recently that said Don't Blame Me, I Voted for the American.

-- Posted by Thought Criminal on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 5:30 PM

The Federal Reserve is hardly any more federal than Federal Express. It is all but in name a private central bank. Please watch the videos I refrenced Mel. I am real curious what you think about them. I'll be surprised if you don't change you opinion about the Fed. It won't be a waste of time for you.

-- Posted by Thought Criminal on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 5:44 PM

If you watch your teenage daughter and her boyfriend go into the bedroom every night and close the door behind them, and that's okay with you, then this would "color" your credibility on issues of morality and teenage behavior, especially if you tout yourself as being a conservative Christian parent who advocates sexual abstinence.

-- Posted by grisgris on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 5:46 PM

See what happens MeLange when you step in the line of fire? ☻

Jealous of Palin, I'm quite sure MeLange knows what's in her backyard. lol You guys have called Obama and Biden every name you could think of or some just watched.

"But you were OK with Biden managing the bailout money when he clearly couldn't manage his own finances?"

-- Posted by YouCannotCensorMe on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 5:12 PM

Not this again, UCMe, having $200,000. in the bank is hardly mismanagement. Some are in it for more than $.

-- Posted by Turnip on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 6:19 PM

Seems to me some of you are more upset about who can/can't run for President. Perhaps some of u should get out your pocket constitution and 'refresh' on the rules. U certainly don't have to be born here to be American citizen or run for President.

-- Posted by Turnip on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 6:23 PM

Sorry ,when I said 'some are in it for more than the $'; I meant people in general and life. Not specifically Biden/politics although it may be true.

Letterman is trying to save his bacon. He stepped over the line while trying to stir up some publicity, and now he's feeling the heat. He doesn't think he did anything wrong, I guarantee it. Letterman has no class.

-- Posted by slim_pickens on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 6:37 PM

IMO, Palin showed little or no class when she did not bow out gracefully. Instead she did interviews attempting to play the 'victim'. Anyone who goes into politics can not be a victim.

She also abused her authority as governor, with that bro-n-law scandal.

-- Posted by Turnip on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 6:47 PM

OpNo hasn't stopped posting. I don't think he got in trouble.

-- Posted by slim_pickens on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 6:37 PM

I did not read the comments although this one caught my eye.

slim_pickens,

Are you aware of the United States Constitution? David Letterman is protected by the first amendment:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

http://caselaw.lp.findlaw.com/data/const...

His public apologizes are just that: an effort to appease the public. Constitutionally speaking, Mr. Letterman has committed no harm.

-- Posted by ynot on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 7:09 PM

Good Grief! There are a ton of posts today. Now what am I down on all fours supposed to be sniffin?

-- Posted by Megalomania on Tue, Jun 16, 2009, at 7:20 PM

Me'Lange,

"you only like her because you are thinking with your zipper instead of your brain." At my age that would be flattering rather than a put down.

I guess I am just a little disappointed in all of those who make judgments on individuals based solely on some aspects of their lives with which they might disagree, or that might legitimately show some short comings or poor judgment. This country has elected individuals to the office of President who have exhibited far worse judgment and behavior in their public and private lives in and out of office. Like I said previously, funny how the person being judged so harshly is always someone that individual opposes politically; only by sheer coincidence mind you.

I have come to expect such from us knuckle dragers, but not from the more enlightened, open minded, pure of heart and intent, intellectuals on here; I am so disillusioned.

Now I think I may need a nap.

Have an uneasy feeling with government being involved with any kind of business, figuring that if elected officials possessed any demonstrable, desirable business practices - they wouldn't be in politics.

This would include government dealings with Chapter 100 http://www.stlrcga.org/Documents/Incenti... , tax-increment financing (TIF) http://stlouis.missouri.org/sldc/busdev/..., payment-in-lieu-of-taxes (PILOT) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PILOT_(fina..., or any other clever smoke-and-mirrors schemes that just don't smell right.

IMO, if a business model needs the above mentioned methods or the like to move forward, perhaps it's not such a good business model.

Jackson school district has a problem with over crowding in its Elementary schools. The question is do they need a new school or is it because the superintendant and the school board keep signing waivers? These waivers are allowing children to go to school at Elememtary schools which they are not zoned to be in. The district draws lines for a reason and they are not for the purpose of scoial classification. All the Elementary schools in Jackson are good schools with good Teachers and Principles. How is the district and the citizens of Jackson suppose to know if we need another Elementary school or not when children are not in the correct school. Schools are losing their computer labs to make room for more students. This is a class that is needed and a skill that will help them in the future. All children should go to the school which they are zoned for according to their address this will allow the needs of the district to be assesed properly.

Triple S

Sarah Palin used every chance she had to parade her children around as campaign props. Then she cries foul when someone calls her on her publicity stunt. I can give you many reasons why I don't like her political stance, but the low class comes from her hypocritical family stance.

Do you disagree?

Wonder what your commanding officer would think of your posts?

WOBBLE, I doubt you will be banned but you can only be censored so many times and 'they' will boot you out of here...btw identity theft is a serious offense. ☻

how the guvment owning a private business benefits us.

Are you familiar with the US Postal Service. It is government owned, but operates as a private business....Are you familiar with government grants to small business owners? Is this not the government investing in private business?
