Trash spending

THE city is spending over $2 million for new trash trucks and new garbage cans when it already has trucks and everyone in town has their own cans. I have two garbage cans that I have not used for years because they are too hard to handle. I am 85 with a steep driveway. I put my garbage in bags to take the the curb. I do the same with plastic and paper.

New economy

INDICATORS reveal that our economy is going through severe trauma and will remain in this condition for several more years. As a solid solution to this problem, why cannot we start a subeconomy involving those who are currently unemployed? A microcosm of a larger economy could be copied. A government-funded financial institution could lend money to small business entrepreneurs as well as individuals to invest strictly to produce goods and services to be consumed by only those in the program. People could move to the city, use public transportation, low-cost housing and so on. The type of goods to produce at first would be only needs of the people such as shoes, clothing and canned food. After all get on their feet, then the wants of the people could be satisfied. In time, a gradual transition to the world economy could be realized by these folks.

More doctors?

I would like to make a comment about the health care bill. If there are going to be 50 million new people covered, where are the doctors? I was in combat, and if someone told me there were going to be more soldiers, I'd want to know where the commanders are

Inappropriate photo

ON the front page you have a picture of the Veterans Day celebration at Capaha Park. The picture is turned sideways. I do not like that. I don't think there's enough patriotism in our country anymore, and I think it's awful to turn the Statue of Liberty and the flag at half staff sideways on the front page of the paper.

Country shelter

IN my opinion, we need a homeless shelter but not on Broadway in the downtown area. We need one out in the country where people can grow vegetables and sell them and eat them. I have never heard a good thing about a homeless shelter. I do not own any property in this area. That's my opinion.

Recycling waste

YOU mean to say that after all these years that I've separated my recyclables, now we're going to put them all in one container? What a waste of money and time.

Hu Jintao has a new prison b*tch, his name is OBAMA.

Am I the only one who saw the press conference the other day when Chinese President Hu Jintao and Obama spoke to the press after their little two hour chat?

Obama looked like a whipped puppy dog. He knew his place, and it wasn't the head of the most powerful nation of the world, that honor has been transfered to Hu Jintao.

I would not be so crude in describing Obama as Jintao's prison b*tch, that honor goes to a medical worker friend of mine who say so in an early morning phone call today.

The more that I thought about it, the more that I agreed with him. I was very, very uncomfortable when I saw the press conference. For years, in forums and blogs, I have noted the decline of America. I spoke of a coming crash of the economy, albiet in generic terms, long before it happened last year. I was laughed at, and scoffed. I would state that without jobs, people tend not to buy anything, and was ridiculed. I would point out our enormous debt, and trade embalance with Communist China, and would hear emphatic denials, and even some would say that being in debt was a good thing. Others would just say that I didn't know what I was talking about.

Even though we have many tangible signs of our decline as a society and a so-called superpower, there was not quite a focal point to focus in on and say, aha, there it is, there is the evidence of our new diminished status.

This week, President Obama gave us that focal point, the larger than life mural that the handwriting is on the wall, the America that I knew in the 50's, 60's, and early 70's, is no more, we are on our way to 2nd world status in a hurry.

That one piece of evidence that should knock every American on their azzes, is the tape of the press conference between Communist Chinese leader Hu Jintao, and Obama this week.

After the two plus hour meeting, they emerged. Obama had no pride in his stride. He looked much like how a defeated enemy leader meets his victorous opponent after a battle. He had become Hu Jintao's prison b*tch. There was no dispute who was on top, who would be the "male" and who was forced to play the role of "female" in their relationship. Obama was on the bottom.

This is not a personal slam at Obama. Sure, Obama has been the handmaiden puppet to the globalists, and has declared his love and support of globalism on many ocassions, before and after his election as our president, however, Obama did not set the decline of America in purposeful motion, he is just the current caretaker of America for the Globalists and their New World Order.

There was a bit of hope, just a tiny bit in that news conference this week. It may be that China, under President Hu Jintao, will not take any sh*t form anyone, including Obama's globalist masters. Perhaps, we will become free someday if Hu Jintaou can bring down the New World Order globalists without permanently and completely damanging the workers and the good people of our country.

The globalists have tried to do so, and are succeeding with the help of New World Order stooges like Jo Ann Emerson. Perhaps Hu Jintao will take Wall Street bankers and their holdings to pay off our debt to Communist China. As it is, we are paying over $50 BILLION each year in just interest, I doubt very much if we have given the Chinese much on the principal. As far as I am concerned, China can have the booty that they Wall Street bankers stole from us and from them, if they would just let us start manufacturing products again, if we would adopt a "mind your own business" policy.

We are no longer a superpower. Thankfully, we are losing our so-called "economy" that was erronously based on scams by greedy, gambling bankers on Wall Street. I hope that a true economy rises to take it's place and that America can become the land of dreams once again. As it is now, we are the land of nightmares, financial criminality, and fascist/socialist engineering.

Obama didn't meet the president of Communist China this week, he met our banker.

Recycling Waste ----- Trash Spending

All good points. My point is, since we are in a depression, why is our Mayor, City Manager, and City Council squandering almost $3 MILLION dollars on a new trash system in the first place?

The ONLY conclusion that I can reach is that someone is getting a pay-off, or, a kickback for political reasons. I don't say that is exactly what happened, but I cannot arrive at any other conclusion.

God knows who is involved. Did Jo Ann Emerson and Kit Bond call the Mayor, and tell him that xyz trash company has been good to Republicans as far as contributions on the national level, and that if Cape Girardeau wanted any federal funds for city projects, that the city would need to do some heavy business with xyz trash company?

I don't really know. Yes, I could look into it, but I would prefer that someone with more investigation and prosecutorial clout would do so.

Someone like Claire McCaskill, perhaps, or, a government watchdog group would be dandy.

Just an opinion, nothing more, but I just cannot rationalize how, when the nation is in a depression, and sales tax revenues, and other revenues are down, how the Mayor, and the City Council can justify over $3 MILLION dollars pee-ed down the drain on a trash system that we do not need, and a good portion of the city does not want.

It's days like this that you would like to send each member of the City Council, the Mayor and the City Manager a noose in the mail. Unfortunately, due to the acts of terror committed by members in and outside of our federal government on September 11th, 2001, and the ready made laws that they had speedily enacted, such an act, MAY, by those who are paranoid, be construed to be an act of terrorism.

I could just choke all you dummies who said that you would give up freedom to be more secure, but, alas, again, that MAY be incorrectly construed to be a terrorist statement by someone who is in sympathy with Al Katie, or, Lezzbollah.

You make my day. Of course, I believe that I am right. I have been right in the past, but that fact and $4.00 will get me a nice cup of coffee.

When it comes to my writings, all that I ask is that the reader look further into what I say, and decide for themselves as to what is truth.

If asked, I could not name one NFL player, nor, a baseball player other than Pujols. I enjoy watching the games, but that is not where I live. This is my area of interest. I have a background that I feel makes me well suited to make the statements and take the positions that I do.

I give credit to sources other than my own thought, and, anything pasted from another source is in quotation marks.

I had dinner with an attorney last night. I have long said how China is our banker, we can't say boo sh*t to them, because they hold all the cards. However, last night my attorney really put it into words that says it best.

"Obama didn't meet the president of Communist China this week, he met our banker."

I am pleased that you find what I have said today, to be interesting. I will discuss anything in a rational manner, as long as it is poised to me in a rational manner.

Being old and remembering the original phrase, this made me laugh: "... that fact and $4.00 will get me a nice cup of coffee."

Liked this clever statement ... "Obama didn't meet the president of Communist China this week, he met our banker." That one did not make me laugh, though!

Cadillacman,

I believe that you have me confused with someone else. I do know sh*t when I see it, and I see a lot of it now.

I have never said a kind word about bush, or, cheney, as there were none to say. As for your Obama, I have very little kind to say about him, as well.

Obama is more articulate, ON OCASSION, than was bush, but he is a hard pressed without a teleprompter. I was his performance when he was at Thorngate in Cape Girardeau, prior to the election. He have a dazzling speech which had my facial cheeks tingling. That is a sign of a sure hit. Then, toward the end of the speech, a young Thorngate worker asked him about the jobs, about bringing jobs back to America. Obama began to stutter, hem and haw, and start fast dancing with her. He finally got it out that globalization was good, that we could not go back on globalization, if we did that it woudl be a mistake. Then, he started yammering about green jobs. It was clear that he was no prepared for that quesiton, and had no idea in hell what greed jobs were, he was just tossing it out to move on past her question.

Then, a couple weeks later, I saw Obama's economic speech. Again, Obama said that that we could not go back on globalization, to do so was a mistake, and those who wanted to, was wrong. He repeated his claim that we wold have green jobs. I knew that he was lying out his ***. I knew at that moment that he was trouble, that he was a liar, a globalist, a deceiver attempting to ride in on the wings of globalism, by disguising globalism to make it sound pretty, and that it was to be the future of America.

Just like Clinton, Obama seems like a good person to have a beer with, but you wouldn't want to trust either with your money, or, your daughter. Clinton, Bush, and Obama are globalist stooges, they have worked for a New World Order, and each had their own indespensible part to play. When we are done with Obama in 2012, we will elect a Republican who promises to take us away from the evils of Obama, while that Republican will implement another stage of globalism and the New World Order. After him, we will elect a Democrat to save us from the evils of the Republican who saved us from the evils of Obama who saved us from the evils of Bush, who saved us from the evils of Clinton. Yet, each time we will have gotten more evil.

You have not read my writings very closely if you think that I beleive that other countries should bow down to us. I believe that we should be friendly toward all, trade with all, but be entangled with none, especially, Israel, and Britian. I believe that we should concentrate on making America a great place to live for our citizens, and not making our citizens slaves to a globalist New World Order.

As for your comment:

"you end up as one of the first people in line to receive the free healthcare services after the bill passes and made into law."

It depends upon what you call "free healthcare," there, slick. I do not call healthcare free, when Americans are forced into buying insurance from a private insurance company, and if they don't, they will be fined thousands of dollars. To me, slick, that is not free, that is forced healthcare.

Now, you could have probably talked me into a French style healthcare system. Where my tax dollars are taken to give every citizen totally free healthcare. If a government is going to take my money, and they ARE going to take my money, I would druther that they take my money and give us all free healthcare, than I would for them to take my money and kill almost two million people in Iraq and Afghanistan, two peoples who never did a **** thing to us. The US military industrial complex that President Eisenhower warned us about is one of our most dangerous enemies. I would rather have my money in my pocket, but given the nature of government, I will never have my money in my pocket, so since they are going to take it, take it and give us all free French Style healthcare instead of killing millions of innocent people.

Your worship of Obama is just as wrong as those who worshiped bush and cheney. The all are globalists with specific agendas to accomplish for the New World Order. If the inside job attacks of September 11th, 2001, would have happened under Clinton, as a country, we would have had no doubt whatsoever that they were planned and carried out by those in and close to our government. As it was, the attacks were carried out under bush, whom , unfortuantely, most Americans trutsted, so we bought the globalist lie that they were attacks from afar. If Bush had attempted to bring about healthcare deform, we would have recognized that something was wrong. As it is, with Obama doing it, he has his supporters who thought that they were going to get universial, single payer healthcare, when they, and us are getting scru-ed instead. Since it is Obama doing it, we will scream "socialism." If bush had done it, we would have taken longer to do it, but we would have eventually figured that it was bad, as well. The thing is, the globalists want to keep the perception that there is a difference between Democrats and Republicans going a little longer, that is why they didn't want to put it on bush to accomplish this scam. That way, we will elect a Republican in 2012 thinking that he is going to change things, and that person will bring on something that we will allow, because he is a Republican that we would have never let Clinton, or, Obama get away with.

Yo.

Hu Jintao has a new prison b*tch, his name is OBAMA.

Cadillacman, when you said that Obama didn't look weary, as I had speculated, you hadn't really read what I said. I didn't say that Obama looke weary, I said he looked whipped. There is a difference.

You must of been looking at a photo of Obama in South Korea, because when he was in China, for the press conference after their two hour meeting, it was Hu Jintao who looked to be the most powerful man on the stage, no Obama. Obama turely did look to be Hu Jintao's prison b*tch. I never said that America needed to be the top dog, as you put it, I said that America needs to provide an atmosphere, economically, and politically so that their citizens can succeed. We used to call that atmosphere the American Dream, because there once was a time in this nation that if you worked hard, and applied yourself, you really could succeed and rise above your cirucumstance.

You either do not understand, or, you cannot comprehend what has gone on in this country for the last forty-fifty years. If you do not understand what President Eisenhower what trying to warn us of when he gave his Farewell Address, then I suggest that you watch the video and lip read.

In the past, I always thought that America might rebel, and erupt into violence if the government attempted to disarm our citizens.

I now wonder if being forced to pay premiums as a kick-back to insurance company contributors to political campaigns.

It will be interesting to see if anyone steps forward after being fined for not paying this treasonous fine, and takes matters into his hands in a non-politically correct manner.

If that happens, if just one American rebels and uses force to protect his freedom, I wonder if many will follow suit.

I question the resolve of Americans to resist and expel tyranny from our nation. Perhaps, if the fascist health deform passes, we will find out if Americans have the courage and resolve to win back their freedoms.

Yes, actually ... thought that gal/guy avatar might be from the W.mart shoppers thing going around. That really was a great e-mail ... astounding too. Anyone remember Saturday shopping days, when Moms and Grandma's actually almost got 'dressed up' to go shopping?

Sometimes, Defy ... your comments make me shudder; sometimes have me laughing; sometimes make so much scary sense that I have to admire your take on things. The main difference I see between 'Republican' versus 'Democrat' is ideology ... And those individual party ideologies tend to focus more on emotional issues than the ones which might be more important to the well-being and survival of our country. I primarily cast my vote last November for peace and a smaller, more efficient government ... That didn't work too well for me.

I'm waiting to see all the wonderful things this health care bill will do for the seniors on Medicare ... the ones who have around $800 SS check and can't afford the supplemental policies, but because they own the homes they worked hard over the years to pay for, they don't generally qualify for any 'government assistance.' I just know in my heart that our government leaders will be helping them!
