Speakout (05/28/16)
In my opinion, there's two kinds of people in this world, Democrats and Republicans. Democrats are welfare people that don't want to work and want to stay Democrat. Trump is gonna take care of that though. So bye-bye you welfare Democrats. I think it's a sad day when tenants have more rights than the landlords. ...
Speakout (05/27/16)
Get it like you give it What is wrong with people here lately? They are abusing, mistreating, starving and killing children. Whatever they do to those children, the law should do to them. I don't care what it is they have done, they should do it to them. ...
Speakout (05/26/16)
I'm calling about your ad in the paper about the Historic Downtown Farmers Market. The recipes that you put in the paper, the print is so small I can't read the recipes. I was just wondering if you could make the print bigger. I'm 59 and I need bigger letters...
Speakout (05/23/16)
I am calling about the speakout article, "I can trump you." I agree with this person 100 percent about Benghazi and the emails of Hillary. In addition, I have come across a direct quote of Hillary's from a reliable source in which she says, "We are going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good." Gee whiz! What is the difference between Hillary and Sanders? Who knows? But this helped decide my vote...
Speakout (05/21/16)
I'd like to speakout on "Junkyard of the year," in SpeakOut. Good luck getting anything done with this lady. If they do, tell them to come out here to Miner to houses on Gilmore, HH Highway and all junk cars around the main intersection. Tell them if they can get her to clean it up, to just come on out here and help us...
Speakout (05/19/16)
This is to the mayor of Morehouse. Sir, I know you are busy and I know you have got your hands full over there. But there's an old house that is down there on Boone Street that is halfway falling down, with one half standing up. I swear there are rats that are coming out of that mess. It needs to be cleaned up. Help!...
Name calling won't solve our problems (05/18/16)
Once again this past week, a member of the Congressional Black Caucus played the race card against opponents of the president's latest progressive scheme. The argument was - as it has been for the past eight years - that the president's opponents were racists and prone to oppose the president's policies only because of his skin color...
Speakout (05/16/16)
To the person who asked if you wanted a thief in the White House, when Hillary Clinton left the White House as First Lady, she was so poor she couldn't afford to buy furniture so she stole furniture from the White House and took it with her. Now do you call that thievery? Do you want her for your president?.....
Just like Nemo, we're caught up in the 'net (05/14/16)
Did you know the attention span of a goldfish is approximately 8 seconds? For starters, if you truly knew this isolated and useless tidbit of information, you need to examine your life. But regardless, a new study by some unknown person who does useless studies shows that in today's hyper-tech society, humans and goldfish share the same attention span...
Speakout (05/11/16)
I'm calling about the article in SpeakOut, "Up in smoke." Whoever the person was that put that in there must be one of the dumbest people in the world. Do they think all the stuff that he said should've been done could've been done and would've been done if it was possible? The police try and they do their best. And that's what they do - their best...
Another experiment in social engineering (05/11/16)
Beware of Julian Castro. As Housing Secretary, Castro has become the darling of the far left and the much-rumored vice presidential frontrunner for Hillary Clinton. In what could be the final nail in the coffin fashioned for America by President Obama, this fall, Castro will launch the most socially disruptive scheme yet devised...
Speakout (05/09/16)
It's getting close to graduation time and the announcements are beginning to roll in. I have received three so far, and wouldn't know these kids if I met them on the street. Just because I went to school with your grandmother, grandfather, father, mother or other family member, doesn't mean I should receive an announcement, which for all practical purposes is a request for a gift. ...
Speakout (05/07/16)
I have a comment about changing the picture on the $20 bill. When that is done, the banks or whomever makes change for me, better have a bunch of $10 bills. I have to comment on the massive amount of dust created by South Ridge Estates in the development on Blue Ridge. ...
Speakout (05/06/16)
Telling on Taylor I'm calling to speakout and complain about the loud music and drugs throughout the late hours of the night on Taylor Street. The cops have been called and nothing yet has been done. I am going to continue to call until this gets stopped. Some of us work for a living. You are disturbing the peace and it needs to stop...
Speakout (05/05/16)
I was reading the Sunday paper about Morley and the dogs. I moved from there, but not because of the dogs, because of the water bills. I do believe someone is getting money other than for the water bills. They ran from anywhere to $70 to $130 a month. That is ridiculous!...
Speakout (05/04/16)
I would like to speakout about Donald Trump. He has filed bankruptcy three times, which makes him a thief. He's called everybody else some kind of name, but he is a thief. He is running for President of the United States. People, think. Do you want a thief in the White House? I hope not...
Indictment unlikely for another Clinton (05/04/16)
Let's face it, many Republicans held out hope that the FBI investigation into the unique email server policy established by Hillary Clinton would result in an indictment and end her run for the White House. Pundits and politicians alike have opined for months on the potential national security threat presented by the private email server put into place with little government knowledge and apparently, less security...
Speakout (05/02/16)
If black lives matter, I wonder why Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson haven't showed up in the Cape Girardeau, Sikeston and Cairo areas. If they really mean what they say, they really need to go to these towns and make a stand for their people. All these blacks are being killed by each other. They need to get to these towns if they really think black lives matter...
Speakout (04/30/16)
This concerns 3-year-old classes. I see where Charleston wants to start a 3-year-old class, better known as babysitting. The school board should realize that we the taxpayers pay people to raise their own children, not ours. Now they want to extend babysitting to 3 year olds. We need to change the way money is allotted for schools. We are tired of paying the school when we don't have school-aged children...
Could today be the best day of your life? (04/30/16)
I noticed an internet story this week - which was also featured on a morning talk show - about a group of four young Marines posing 50 years ago for a picture on a sandy California beach just before being deployed to Vietnam. Posing with a surfboard and the earnest gazes of men heading into the unknown, the four young men were frozen in time during a much different era, during a much different war...
Speakout (04/29/16)
Sikeston has really went to pot, all the shooting, all the drugs. I don't know if our cops just don't care. I don't know if the cops just don't want to do their job. I don't know if it's the judges and prosecutors not caring. They want to make Sikeston a smoke-free town? Why don't we first shoot for gun-free, no shootings, drug-free? Shoot for these things first and then we'll see about smoke-free. Once the police get all the shooters and drugs off the street, then we'll see about smoke-free...
Your view: Flawed process (04/28/16)
Dear Editor: I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate our basketball team for their recent trip to the Final Four in Columbia. Although academics are the main focus of an exemplary educational system, extra-curricular activities and sports have a tremendous impact on the school climate as well as community involvement...
Speakout (04/28/16)
I thought people were supposed to get guns to protect their families, not kill their families. Every time something happens, somebody has to grab a gun and kill their family, kill themselves or kill somebody. Maybe they are giving guns to nuts. Maybe they need to start checking more on who they give guns to. When you go around killing your family instead of protecting your family, that's ridiculous...
The political turmoil just keeps on brewing (04/27/16)
The odd twists and turns of the Republican presidential primary are almost enough to make Hillary Clinton look like a viable candidate. As a lifelong conservative - which translates into a lifelong Republican - I find myself frustrated and disgusted with the '16 primary season on the GOP side...
Speakout (04/27/16)
I'm responding to the April 17 SpeakOut "Broken promises." It's talking about Bernie Sanders and how they are gonna vote for Hillary Clinton. Apparently whoever wrote this article has not done any investigating of Hillary Clinton. If he thinks Bernie Sanders has problems with his policies, they really need to rethink Hillary Clinton who is giving American jobs away, instrumental in the Benghazi murders, should be indicted the 2,000 highly-classified emails sent. ...
