Speak Out 12/21/11

Wednesday, December 21, 2011

Thank you

I want to thank the postal clerk at the Bi-State post office for coming out in the parking lot and giving me my charger plate I left. God bless you, and thank you so much. Have a merry Christmas.

U.S. jobs

THE United States is no longer a manufacturing country. Just how many jobs will the service industry hold? Can it hold everybody?

Redistricting

SOME area Republicans seem upset about the redistricting of state congressional districts. Good.

Rush Limbaugh

SOMEONE said Rush Limbaugh was wrong about something. Rush would not dispute that. He freely admits he's correct only 99.6 percent of the time.

Urban hunting

DEER hunting committee member Beverly Weakley is concerned about the potential dangers of hunting, if allowed in the city. I, too, am concerned about that. But hey, I was real concerned when that deer ran into my van on Hopper Road.

Ethical businessman

‘ETHICAL businessman' is not an oxymoron.

Day of prayer

I am very excited for the day of prayer for Nolan Weber. It is great to see him turning to faith in God and making that his priority for healing.

Fix roads

I would just like to know if anyone from the city in Jackson knows about the really bad cracks in the pavement right in front of Save-A-Lot in Jackson. Right in front of it and right beside it. It's been there for a really long time, and I was wondering if it could get fixed.

Tithing winnings

IT was exciting to learn that the lady from Scott City won $100,000 and is going to pay a tithe to her church. I hope she will pay a tithe on the gross winnings, not the net after taxes.

@Thank you- Their are no postal clerks that work at BP. They are minimum wage gas station attendants.

A year from today will be Dec. 21, 2012 which in the Mayan Calendar is 'Doomsday'. What do you think......humm.

U.S. jobs: If you want to see U.S. jobs you need to travel to Mexico or China.

Rush Limbaugh: Maybe they need to "Occupy" Rush Limbaugh's office.

Urban hunting: Do the advocates of urban deer hunting know how far a arrow travels from these compound bows......hint it's greater than your backyard.

Ethical businessman: Substitute politician for businessman, when a person is elected to any office the word ethics is deleted from their brains.

Day of prayer: Everyday should be a day of prayer. Heaven help the USA because the ones in Washington won't.

Fix roads: Just like they did for the "New" Bloomfield Road....don't blink or you will miss all of the new pavement.

Tithing winnings: Should be on the net winnings, that is what the person realized. Bet the caller was the preacher from the winning person's church.

Well, maybe Rush Limbaugh IS right 99.6% of the time. Now ain't that swomething!

-- Posted by voyager on Wed, Dec 21, 2011, at 8:37 AM

It isn't that Rush Limbaugh is right 99.9% of the time. It is just that there are enough gullible people out there who know so little that they think he is right 99.9% of the time. And that is a dangerous thing.

Gotta say, I am with Wheels on this...(must be the holiday spirit or something)...

If the winner wants to give, let them give, and get your nose out of it.

I can't stand conditional thanks!

As long as Rush can keep it stirred up that means more money in his pocket, remember he is just an entertainer making a living.

Urban hunting: Do the advocates of urban deer hunting know how far a arrow travels from these compound bows......hint it's greater than your backyard.

Yes, I know how far and it depends on your back yard as well as the strength of the bow, angle etc.

That is twice this year that Theorist agreed with me.... and the year isn't over yet...... ☺ ☺ ☺

With this, I am up to three; I believe Theorist and I are both beginning to be a little concerned.☺☺☺

If a person wants to know what it signifies , ask a Mayan . Posted by Rick. * * on Wed, Dec 21, 2011, at 12:45 PM

Rick: I believe the Mayans and the dinosaurs are both gone.

With this, I am up to three; I believe Theorist and I are both beginning to be a little concerned.☺☺☺-- Posted by Acronym on Wed, Dec 21, 2011, at 5:13 PM

Wheels: It's a Christmas miracle.

T-6 and Counting.-- Posted by Have_Wheels_Will_Travel on Wed, Dec 21, 2011, at 9:14 AM

Wheels: I'm jealous.

Looks like Congress has given 160 million hard working Americans a Christmas payroll tax. Also, some 2 million unemployed cut off from unemployment benefits.

Mayans (Honduras to central Mexico) are still around in the Yucatán Peninsula. Posted by Me'Lange on Wed, Dec 21, 2011, at 8:12 PM

Me'Lange: Once again I stand corrected, guess I got the Incas and Mayans mixed up. Been to Cancun, the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza are about a 2 hr. drive from there. With all the violence down there away from the Cancun resort area, it didn't feel safe enough to venture out into the jungle but would like to see it.

Me'Lange: One bit of advice, you are not getting younger so do what you want to do and go where you want to go. That's what we are doing.
