Clinton presidency

If you think President Obama is a bad president, thank your lucky stars that Mrs. Hillary Clinton didn't get in there because they'd be teaching the kids about gay marriage in the schools now.

Clean the parks

When is the Cape Girardeau Police Department going to start cleaning our parks up around here? I am trying to take my kids to swing and you've got some dude pulling out a marijuana cigarette right in front of them. We need to get rid of this trash around here. Start cleaning up the trash around the parks so the kids can play around here.

Obama's policies

Sen. John McCain has defined President Obama's foreign policy as feckless, meaning weak. Most Americans give President Obama well-deserved high marks and are thankful because a President McCain would have embarked upon a crusade to reconstruct the entire world in a representative democracy satisfactory to him. The unintended consequences of McCain's crusade would have already caused the U.S. to collapse.

Home break-ins

Beware, people of Cape Girardeau. There are groups of teenagers walking around casing out homes to find people not home so they can break in. Read the police report. Cape has a huge problem with juveniles breaking into homes. If you see anything suspicious at all, please call the police.

Dems name-calling

For the Democrat who doesn't like being called "deranged" by Limbaugh, you obviously are not very well read. Republicans and conservatives are being called much worse by liberal commentators and politicians. Trust me, I'm like Switzerland -- neutral as can be -- but I'm shocked at all the self-righteous indignation on the part of Democrats when they are, in fact, doing the same thing and worse.

Limbaugh column

When it comes to conducting the affairs of our nation's government, David Limbaugh recently deemed a long deceased member of the British nobility much smarter than some of the commoners who serve in America's government. To me, Limbaugh's snide comments smacked of a preference for monarchism over representative democracy and were very insulting to the American people.

Limbaugh bust

Speaking about Limbaugh bust security. I think it is a crying shame. I think people are just plain jealous of him. He might not be perfect, but he is one of us. I just think it is terrible.

Honor vs. greed

It is hard to believe here in America we have this happening. Young men and women are signing up for more deployments to keep others from having to go and end up giving their lives in doing so. Yet here in America we have the greedy. They keep taking their tax breaks and wanting more, giving less. I can't believe we have such selfish people here in America who claim to be Americans.

Medical costs

Referring to the medical costs and how they've risen: I had two tests done: an MRI and I don't remember the name of the other one, but the total was $6,000 and it took about a half an hour.

Federal spending

Under President Obama, federal spending has risen at a slower rate than in the last 60 years.

Church open house

I really hope that the Hanover Lutheran folks will have another open house and tour. I am sorry I didn't read my paper last Sunday early enough, and I hope that they will do that again.

The dude who was smoking a marijuana cigarette in the park must of called in "Obama's policies" and "Federal spending" comments.

Limbaugh bust: zzzzzzz Limbaugh.

Please have your reporters write about the President giving the UN control over our FOOD, WATER and LAND rights. Also research the ramifications of the LAW OF THE SEA TREATY Mr. Obama is working on signing. Mr. Obama and Hillary CLinton are working on an International Gun Basn. I believewith the LAW OF THE SEA we will not be able to drill for oil and coal will be considered toxic and a pollutent. iN ADDITION A GREAT PORTION OUR OIL PROFITS WILL BE GIVEN TO SUPPORT FOREIGH COUNTIRES There are energy companies right now making coal very clean and much more clean the nuclear plants. Please do a write up on a company Rexel, they are involved with the company that is working on providing this clean energy. This is what SOCIALism LOOKS LIKE.

Federal spending: Keynesian economics has proven itself once again as it did during the 1970's, there is no unemployment, just people without jobs.

Another false claim and alarmist scare tactic. Why can't you just enjoy good news and accept it! The glass is half full, BC, take a drink!

Oh No! I was the thirteenth poster! Ducking, looking behind my back and crawling into a corner...Hi Rick!

I disagree BC. I realize you are certain you are correct. And where as I may not be an expert in the area, and Keynes might not be 100% correct, I see mega more problems with free market and fair trade.

Sioux & Wheels: Did one of you install a webcam at our house, how else do you know what happen ;-)
