Speak Out 7/6/12

Friday, July 6, 2012

Thank you

I just want to call and let the Southeast Missourian know that I live in a trailer court and I am very appreciative of what the person who delivers my paper does. I can have a hard time getting down the steps. I just want to let him know that I live at Shadybrook and he puts my paper on the porch every morning and that means a lot to me. I have had the Missourian for years, and I just want to tell him thank you and let him know he is doing a fantastic job.

Inspection concerns

You can tell by the city's actions that it wants to get rid of us low income renters in Cape. Last year they pushed this new sewer tax on us and there was already one on the books, but that increased my rent by $20 to $25 a month. And now I read that they want to do a rental inspection. Just who do they think is going to pay for this? If my landlord has to hire somebody to unlock a door so an inspector can come in and inspect -- and of course they are going to find something -- that is going to cost money. Who do you think pays for that?

Re: Thank you - a big +1 for my delivery person also.

Can count on the paper being within the same 5-foot radius on the driveway every day (except Saturday), and there for my reading pleasure and entertainment as I'm putting my act together to drag on out the door at 0400.

If'n it would come any later than that, by the time I would get back around to read, it wouldn't be news, but instead history.

I heard on a christian radio station that the Girl Scouts of American, support Plan Parenthood, not so much pro life. Could this be true or did I just misunderstand?

When you are at the Gates of Heaven, what will you say to God when he ask you....What did you do to protect my babies?

-- Posted by semo471 on Fri, Jul 6, 2012, at 10:37 AM

"When you are at the Gates of Heaven, what will you say to God when he ask you....What did you do to protect my babies"?

I would say, God I protected both my babies! Then I would thank him for being "pro choice"...that is to say, he gave us ALL choice along with free will. We are all sinners from the very beginning and if you believe in "GOD" you are aware he created us all in HIS own image!

Well said Greywolf.

Where in the bible does it say I am going to be asked this question?

3forone: I didn't say it was in the Bible, we should be prepared to answer any question for what was entered into our Book of Life.

a few so posters will have some xplainin to do

I would suspect God knows the answer to any question already; funny how we view God and the "process" of getting into Heaven or H-e-l-l in terms with what we are familiar in the physical world.

-- Posted by 356 on Sat, Jul 7, 2012, at 10:12 AM

Well with over 100 people dying every minute I would suggest that IF there is a heaven (the Bible speaks of three) the line at that gate is very long and some of you may have plenty of time to think about what to say at your judgement. I do know this. If there is a heaven and all that we know from the Bible (especially the book of Genesis) is true, then after speaking with God, I have a few words to say to Adam and Eve! It would probably go like this. " WTF were you two thinking"?....just say'n

I'm counting on it. Been cramming for quite a spell.

-- Posted by Have_Wheels_Will_Travel on Sat, Jul 7, 2012, at 10:04 AM

Did you look up what the Bible says about calling someone a fool?? What are you cramming for?

-- Posted by Theorist on Sat, Jul 7, 2012, at 3:43 PM

Rick, When I said "we" I was referring to those who have taken the time to read it. I have absolutely NO problem with anyone who has or has not read it. I respect most religions, beliefs and faiths. I am NOT a religious individual nor will I ever be. Religion does nothing but divide people as I have said here many times.

-- Posted by GREYWOLF on Sat, Jul 7, 2012, at 4:22 PM

looks like speak out is being phased out

-- Posted by Alibaba on Sun, Jul 8, 2012, at 2:04 AM

Can't believe people are not calling into S.O. What is going on in the newspaper editorial dept.?

You can't be old and wise if you were not young and crazy.

-- Posted by semo471 on Sun, Jul 8, 2012, at 9:36 AM

me thinks 4-5 trolls have spoiled speak out

-- Posted by whom on Sun, Jul 8, 2012, at 10:25 AM

It's Sunday.... maybe they are all in Church?

-- Posted by Have_Wheels_Will_Travel on Sun, Jul 8, 2012, at 10:35 AM

Wheels: It's a morning newspaper so the callers could have called in on Saturday. Has it cooled off any up there? Relief should come here tonight with cooler temps and some rain.

-- Posted by semo471 on Sun, Jul 8, 2012, at 10:41 AM

Rick: Chris is what baseball is all about. Seen my first Cardinal game at the old Sportmen's Park on Kingshighway.

-- Posted by semo471 on Sun, Jul 8, 2012, at 3:32 PM

What were you smoking when you went to Sportsman's Park.... it was on North Grand when I was there.-- Posted by Have_Wheels_Will_Travel on Sun, Jul 8, 2012, at 4:51 PM

Wheels: Never smoked, you are correct as always. We took the streetcar (one of the last in St. Louis) on South Grand to the ball park on North Grand ;-)

Rick: Got to see Stan the Man hit a homer at the Sportsman Park. What times we got to go, we would sit out in the left field bleachers for $1.

-- Posted by semo471 on Sun, Jul 8, 2012, at 7:35 PM

we went to the car and listened to the radio, while the other two finished watching the game.

-- Posted by Have_Wheels_Will_Travel on Sun, Jul 8, 2012, at 7:48 PM

Wheels: Listened to the radio....tell me another one.
