What an arrogant dictator type we have in the White House. Won't some true patriot step up to the plate and rid us of this mad man before it is too late?

I don't know what all this commotion is about these mixed-breed puppies, but if someone will give me the phone number of the store that sold the french pug, I'd be glad to do business with them. I am a duck hunter and a rabbit hunter and I'd sure love to have a lebeagle or spanieleagle. It doesn't matter to me. Either one would be fine with me.

If you're an inmate in prison, you lose your rights and privilege to vote. These people who are drawing these big welfare checks and get medical and food stamps, most of the money goes for drugs and alcohol, they're deadbeats. They live from one generation to another on welfare and have no intentions of working. The working people are working their hind-ends off to support these people, healthy people. I would like to see our Congressmen and senators to pass some kind of bill that for those who don't give anything to the country, but just take, take, take and never give anything back, that they should lose their privilege to vote. These people shouldn't have the great honor that we have in this country to vote. Take it away from them. They're not doing our country any good. They're just living off the fat of the land waiting for us to support them. This has been going on for years and it will continue until our politicians put their foot down and pass some kind of law where they will lose their rights. They don't deserve the same rights that the working people have.

I'm sorry, but can someone please explain to me about a police report I saw in the paper where someone had knocked out a rear driver's side window, had stolen 225 compact discs and a CD player that was not ripped out. Who carries around that many CDs in their car. And this thief seems to have been very considerate in not doing very much damage to the car. Can you image the time and trouble it took? Just the weight of the CDs would have been enough to discourage a thief.

The thief or thieves disconnected the wires to the CD player. This is how the theft occurred without causing damage to the vehicle.

I don't know if it's the judges who set the bail or what, but it seems that there is a terrible disparity between the $5,000 for the Indiana mother and $200,000 for the man who attacked the umpire. It seems there's an awful lot of leeway in between there for basically the same offense.

I was watching TV and they're telling how many bombers are going to go in and what size bombs they're going to have when they attack Iraq. I wonder if they are going to tell them exactly what day and hour they're going to go in there too.

I would like to SpeakOut about the effects of war in the Sept. 22 paper. This person must be related to Saddam Hussein. I would much rather use sanctioning or whatever it takes to neutralize this threat to this country. As far as parking the cars and walk. I'd rather park my car and walk than my whole country to be a parking lot for an Arab nation. We have to do what we have to do to take care of business.

When I see the news and they say she was "attacking the child," I have to laugh. She was giving the child a good a-- whipping. Give the child back to her mother. Let her raise her child and whip her a-- when she needs it. She will be better kid for it.

Why can't we get a dog catcher on East Gladys. Dogs are just running around all over, getting into our trash and tearing up carpeting on porches. Animal control has been called four different times and each time they say they're on their way but we have yet to see them. Where is the animal control system in Sikeston?
