Speak Out 1/9/12

Monday, January 9, 2012

Thank you

THANK you to the nice young lady who left the money at Aldi's recently to help pay for my groceries. It just goes to show you that Santa still comes when you've been good, even if you are 89 years old.

Miller column

I am a student at Cape Girardeau Central High School. I would like to thank Bob Miller for writing a column outlining the many good reasons students should not be required to wear uniforms to school. Mr. Miller, you are a true defender of student rights and a hero to the overwhelming majority of us. Thank you.

Team colors

I noticed the Auburn Tigers are in the SEC, just like Mizzou will be next year. So, we are going to have two teams named Tigers in the SEC. That is not a problem because Auburn's colors are blue and orange. There won't be any mistaking them for the black and gold of Mizzou. But the other problem is Vanderbilt has black and gold as their school colors. Their uniforms look almost like Mizzou uniforms, but they have a different name. We will have to see what happens, but Mizzou and Vanderbilt are going to look a lot alike.

MoDOT question

WHY did the Missouri Department of Transportation put concrete slabs in the middle of Route AB at the railroad crossing? This could cause more accidents than not. The view is plain for miles and miles, but yet there are concrete slabs in the middle of that railroad crossing.

George Soros

WILL we let billionaire globalist George Soros select our president again? With his influence over most major media sources and with dozens of organizations to funnel his money through, he can destroy or promote candidates. He has vowed to put us under the New World Order if it takes all of his millions. Do we want to live under U.N. rule? That's what President Obama and Mr. Soros have in mind for us.

Thanks to police

I'D like to say a special thank you to the police officer that stopped on Jan. 3 going on North Kingshighway and retrieved the dead cat out in the middle of the road. I know that's not a pleasant job, but I sure appreciate him doing that.

Me'Lange: We will be babysitting our grandson today and will save a dirty diaper and after a week will see if it indeed smells like the Cape Wal-Mart area;-)

George Soros has influence over most major media sources? Have you listened to talk radio in the last ten years?

You sound so brainwashed.

There's big money on both sides.

The notion that George Soros controls the press borders on hysteria, and certainly ignores the Murdock empire, along with all the billions being spent by big business to control the political process through the efforts of Carl Rove and others. My advice to the caller is to spend a day at the library, take a tranquilizer, and lay off of Glenn Beck for a day or two.

Miller column Call-In , no minor at all , Bob Miller posting to sell his column , in reality .

Common Southeast Missourian trick .

"The notion that he and others do not, borders on an indifference or lack of understanding on what is going on in this country at the very least."

I'm sure there is an extra place at the library and a tranquilizer or two for you also fella, I work with the press and government, so probably my understanding of this is somewhat better than yours, and a whole lot more objective.

Melange I agree with you 100 percent. You never know who the person is on the other side of the screen. Who would have guessed I am almost 100?

Well not quite that age yet. just feels like it most days.

"press and government" are cousins , no ?

Work and government are not related in most ways , if at all .

I think it was BushI who began this non-sense in one of his speeches sometime in the early 1990's .

Me'Lange , either way , it's nice your CAPS/LOCK quit sticking .

Cape student,

As you are a student and therefore a minor, the only rights you have (or should have) are the one's your parents bestow upon you.
