*** Chaffee teens

IT is so nice that we have three groups of teenagers in Chaffee that are so great. The FLBA, the FCCLA and the Beta group of students again put on a huge Thanksgiving dinner. They fed a few hundred seniors without the slightest hitch, and they treated everyone absolutely great. They are a fantastic bunch who deserve a lot of praise.

*** Black eye

I read the letter about CAYSA, and I agree. But they dropped the ball on health and cleanup. The portable toilets were filthy. The trash was not dumped. Cape Girardeau walked away with a black eye.

*** Expired plates

TODAY, as I came back on Independence Street, I was behind a truck with license plates that expired in April 2009. Then there was another car with license plates that expired in July 2009. A little bit later I saw a truck with plates that expired in September. What's wrong? This should be checked out.

*** Move mailboxes

WHEN Route W is widened at Boutin Drive, will the mailboxes be moved to the other side of the highway? It would be safer for the people trying to cross the road in this high-traffic area. Almost all the businesses and residences are on the other side of that road anyway.

*** Policy changes

WITH all the changes that have been made regarding the policies for the breast exams and prostate screenings, I can see that in a short time the surgeon general's warning on a pack of cigarettes will be removed.

*** Providing food

I keep hearing about all these hungry people and how the food banks don't have enough food to feed them. Everybody gets hungry. That doesn't mean you're starving. Hunger is not an indication of being underfed. Food banks should be serving people who are in need of enough food to maintain good health.

*** Not racist

SOMETIME back at a store in Cape Girardeau, I purchased some items and left to go home. A security guard stopped me and asked to see my check-out slip. I showed him, and everything was fine. This was not a racist thing. It was a mistake.

*** Appreciating vets

THANK you to Trinity Lutheran Church in Cape Girardeau for the wonderful veterans appreciation at Sunday services. The message, the music, the photographs and the images were especially moving. We thank all of our veterans for their service, and we thank the military men and women who are serving now.

Expired plates,

You said...

"I was behind a truck with license plates that expired in April 2009. Then there was another car with license plates that expired in July 2009. A little bit later I saw a truck with plates that expired in September. What's wrong? This should be checked out."

Really, you little neo-Nazi stooge, you think that this should be "checked out?" How about you minding your own **** business, instead of sticking your nose in someone elses? Prehaps you are a fairy, but you sure as hell are not the license fairy. If an officer observes what you claim, the situation will be dealt with, but if your life is so mundane, and your personality is so shallow, that all you have to to is check for license plate expiration dates, they you lead one hell of an unrewarding life. Get a life you stoolie. No one likes a petty snitch.

*** Military trial

You, an ingorant fool, so stupidly said in the Thanksgiving Day Speak Out....

"I'M opposed to giving terrorists a nonmilitary trial. They are not American citizens. They are not even prisoners of war. They were caught fighting our soldiers without a uniform. That makes them eligible for immediate execution without a trial. They should be tried by a military tribunal. If we give them a jury trial, the jury could be vulnerable to terrorist retaliation. "

You are a complete, yes, a complete idiot, and moron. I do not judge you in a flipant manner, I speak only the truth.

First, what the hell makes you think that these men are terrorists? The US Government told their Communist friends, the Northern Alliance to round up some prisoners so that they could take them back to Gitmo for show. They gave the Communists in Afghanistan bounties, money for each "prisoner" that they turned in. The US Military didn't give a **** if the prisoner that they got from this bounty system was a loyal, patritotic Afghan, who was fighting the tyranny and terror of the US invaders, or, if the prisoner was a goat herder who was dating the sister of one of the communists, and he didn't like him, so he turned him in to the US Military as a "fighter."

Then, you, in your stupid, flag thumping, idiotic manner say...

"They are not even prisoners of war. They were caught fighting our soldiers without a uniform. That makes them eligible for immediate execution without a trial. "

Really, dummy, so you think that because they were fighting the terror, and tyranny of your invading troops, who had no **** business being in Afghanistan, that they should be executed becasue they didn't have a uniform? Really, God, you are one stupid *** person. You aren't alone, many dummy Americans who like to thump their flag and beat their breasts for war against two people who never did a **** thing to us, The Iraqis and the Afghanis think as along the same dumbazz lines as you do.

I don't have a uniform, and if the US puts Mexican , and/or Canadian troops, or, any other **** foreign troops on our American streets to attempt to control, and supress the American people, I will be in the streets killing them, and I may not have a uniform, unless you are willing to buy one for me. Afghans are poor people. They don't have a lot of money, so, please forgive them, if they go into the streets to kill your invading, terrorist troops and not be properly dressed to your standards,

What an idiot.

The Taliban is the legitimate government of Afghanistan. Your troops are terroristic invaders, who have brought nothing but terror and destruction to Afghanistan. You government is attempting to supress the people of Afghanistan and bring their country into their satanic New World Order, as they are doing in Iraq.

God is with the Afghan people. The Afghan will win this war of terror against them, no matter how many terrorist troops that Obama sends. The loyal, patritotic Afghan citizen will take whatever weapon that is offered to them and kill your sons and daughters and send them back to your government in a body bag.

As for all this crap about trying them in a court, instead of your military tribunals, don't worry, the gullible US citizen, like yourself will be on the jury. In Paducah, a piece of crap US Army soldier who planned the rape and murder of an entire Iraqi family, because he wanted to rape the 15 year old daughter was only given life for his heinous crimes. Sgt. Green planned the home invasion by him and some of his men, planned the rape, raped the 15 year old girl, murdered her mother, her father, and her 9 year old sister. So , don't worry, even though if these men in Gitmo did anything, it was to defend their country from your terrorist troops, the dummies like you on the jury will find them guilty of high crimes.

If some of them, IF, some of them killed American troops in Afghanistan, they were justified in doing so, because your terrorist troops have no **** business being in Afghanistan.

I have stated facts, pure facts, you have presented nothing.

Defy,

I've found it ironic that the neocons have always held the line that the prisoners at Gitmo are not soldiers, therefore they should not be afforded Geneva Convention treatment. Yet the same neocons claim that they should be tried in a military tribunal because the crimes that they are being accused of are "acts of war".

-- Posted by Lumpy on Sun, Nov 29, 2009, at 8:49 AM

Not racist,

Why can't more citizens be like this poster? Everyone should take notes.

Notice how willingly and unquestionably the good citizen shows their papers to anybody in a uniform? I'm sure that they are more than happy to give any requested information to individuals with a title of authority - census workers, doctors' receptionists, cops, military personel: public or private, buerocrats - the possibilities are endless.

The state has big plans for upstanding, obediant citizens like this poster. Afterall, if you have nothing to hide it shouldn't matter.

Right?

Re: Expired plates

What's wrong? Well, looking at some of the requirements for renewing tags, one could conclude one or some of the following -

1) Owner has operated and maintained the vehicle in such a condition unable to pass the current standard safety inspection.

2) Owner cannot provide proof of personal property tax payment.

3) Owner cannot provide proof of insurance.

4) Owner does not have adequate funds to completely cover the required inspection or renewal fees, vehicle maintenance expenses, insurance costs, or taxes due - but apparently has sufficient funds for fuel to be out-n-about on public roadways.

5) Owner simply has the ol' noggin stuck in a place that perhaps even the largest of John Deeres cannot pull out.

-- Posted by fxpwt on Sun, Nov 29, 2009, at 10:16 AM

lumpy,

This post of yours from 8:49am this morning is so inciteful.

"I've found it ironic that the neocons have always held the line that the prisoners at Gitmo are not soldiers, therefore they should not be afforded Geneva Convention treatment. Yet the same neocons claim that they should be tried in a military tribunal because the crimes that they are being accused of are "acts of war"."

Isn't that the simple truth? Wonder why all of our talking heads in the media are not taking that bit of clarity on?

One poster has stated that they should not be tried in US courts because they weren't wearing uniforms, and thus, they were not entitled to trials by a jury. I look at idiotic statements like that, in the same manner that I do when the Israeli government, their US government controlling Isreali lobbies, and Israeli sympathisers go off on the Palestanians for launching Katusha rocket attacks into Israel, or, the Iraqis for using IEDs. The Katusha rocket is a point and shoot weapon. It is not really a programmable, or, guided rocket, so, if you launch some of them in the general direction of a target, some may hit it, some may fall short, or, wide afield and hit an Israeli house, or, Israeli apartment complex, because the Israeli's are builidng all over the Occupied Territorities, so, it would be surprising if one of the rockets didn't hit an Israeli built, or, occupied building.

When, in other forums, posters complained about the indescrimate nature of the Palestanian launched Katusha rockets, or, that IED devices were killing American troops, or, that the Iraqi Resistance was using what they war boosters were calling suicide bombers, I suggested that America supply the Palestanians, and the Iraqi and Afghanistan Resistance with better weapons. Made sense to me. The resistance had no tanks, no heavy artilery, no GPS guided rockets, no Predator attack drone aircraft, so they were forced to use primative, but effective means to attempt to defend their country against US terrorism, invasion, and occupation. So, make a deal with them. Get them to promise not to use IED's, Katusha rockets, and suicide bombers, and in exchange, force the US taxpayer to buy more modern weapons and give them to the Iraqis, the Afghans and the Palestanians to use against American troops.

Also, the American tax payer should be forced to fork over more money to buy the Aghan Resistance some nice new uniforms. Then, those who complain that the sheep herders, and others captured by the payment of a bounty paid by the US to their communist buddies, the Northern Alliance, for bringing any any soul that they could round up and claim to be a combatant, then, they would have proper, nice fitting, Italian designed uniforms, and look smartly dressed when they kill our troops.

You cut to the heart of a major problem, which is going un,or, under reported by the press in America. Well written, Lumpy.

To solve my lack of camo problem, I have narrowed my choices down to

French Lizard Camo. I had this camo pattern when I was much thinner.

http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=h...

German Flecktarn. A real favorite of mine, but hard to find in real Gemran military issue, especially in larger sizes. Reproductions are from China, and not the quality that I desire.

http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=h...

German BGS. I really love this pattern. I had a cap in this pattern. Hard as heck to find this pattern in any size, now.

http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=h...

Polish PUMA pattern. I really do love this pattern as well. It looked great on me, and it just felt right on me. That was a couple years ago when it fit. I had a couple BDU shirts and a couple pants. No cap. I like the cap.

Russian BDU's are very well constructed of high quality materials and craftsmanship. Too bad my set no longer fits.

http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=h...

I have a Russian woodland camo assault vest. It still fits. Nice construction. It appears to be a vest from a regular Russian woodland BDU jacket, with AK-47 pouches sewn in, and a couple other various size pouches. Not really an assault vest like most of us have, but more on the order of what some re-sellers call a "ranger vest," usually constructed of cloth.

I do like my South African rig for .308 mags. It has two mag, mag pouches sewn everywhere. On the side of the buttpacks, on top of the butt packs. My next test is to see if these mag pulls for the rapid retrieval of mags, will work well with the mag pouch placement on this LBE rig. I do have plenty of Canadian mag pouches for .308 mags, that have pull straps sewn into the pouch to access the mag rapidly. They will attach to the South African rig. http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=h...

I would say that means just forgotten. My tags expire at the first of the year. Two years ago I was pulled over in May. Thank job the cop is a friend. The problem was forgetting to get them. They should look at the age of people when they make their decision. :)

Defy,

It is interesting that you support the Taliban and their radical Sharia Law. They came to power in 1996 during the everlasting civil war in Afghanistan. They are fun loving people treating women like beasts. For example, women were prohibited from leaving the home without the company of a male relative. They could be beaten or even shot if violating this rule. They could have their fingers chopped off for wearing nail polish.

Your beloved Taliban profited from smuggling opium and electronics. Their great efforts did not end the civil war, improve living conditions and caused a decline in employment.

Your buddies allowed terrorist groups to run training camps in their territory and provided refuge for Osama bin Laden and and his al-Qaeda (9-11) organization and reportedly married one of his daughters to Mullah Muhammed Omar.

The Taliban wants to destabilize other countries in the region. These are the people that want to put us all under Sharia Law. That is to convert to Islam or die.

Defy, you go off on these never-ending essays with your twist of facts and seem to want to blame America first. I have seen very little you have posted supporting our country. You are obviously a very unhappy person and I offer you my sympathy. Perhaps you should blog with Michelle Obama as you seem to have similiar views about our country and our policies. Have you forgotten 9-11? These radicals are committed to convert and control the world while many have their noses in the sand.
