Casino, water bill

Why don't we use some of the casino money to lower our water and sewer rates?

Opinion page

I always thought journalists and newspapers were supposed to be neutral, but the Southeast Missourian is not being neutral in its Opinion section of the paper. Rarely do I ever read a Democratic opinion, it is always a Republican opinion. The entire section is full of biased opinions. It is well known that the Southeast Missourian is a conservative paper, but the least you could do is to be fair and allow the other side to participate.

Obama donor

How convenient: Wireless executive with ties to Obama wins contract to supply poor with smartphones. You see, King Obama and his tribe thinks we are all so stupid that we can't see through his arrogance and obvious stupidity. This Obama donor hosted a $40,000-per-plate dinner at his modest Miami mansion and now he is being rewarded. Of course, his spinners say there is no correlation to the contract and the exec's donor status. Please.

Checks, debit cards

When they start charging me to use my debit card at different places, I'm going to start writing checks again. I know the banks don't like that, so we'll see how things work out.

Casino, water bill: Why don't you call City Hall with your suggestion.....do you think they read Speakout.

Opinion page: If the opinion page of the paper upsets you then don't look at the page. Try that same method in life also and you will be a less stressed person.

Obama donor: You might want to switch to decaf and calm down.

Checks, debit cards: Cash works also.

Opinion page;

Now you know how a lot of people feel when they read or listen to national news sources and it's all liberal commentary!

It's nice to have a paper that isn't liberal. Like the Post disgrace is. Plus, we don't really have any network news that isn't. And you want to take this away from us too?

"When they start charging me to use my debit card at different places, I'm going to start writing checks again. I know the banks don't like that, so we'll see how things work out."

Seems you misunderstood the recent report that announced places of businesses, in most states, could legally pass on their charges to consumers, from their CREDIT (not debit) card transactions.

However, news also stated companies that do business in multiple states, including those where it is not legal to pass these charges on directly, will most likely NOT add the additional fees on to consumer tabs directly.

A 150-foot wide asteroid will zoom within 17,200 miles of Earth on Friday. NASA says, "There is no chance of it hitting Earth". However, if the asteroid would hit New York City, the city would cease to exist so we can trust our government's agency statement.....you know our government does not ever lie to us.
