Speakout 10/6

Thursday, October 6, 2005

I would like to make a comment about the pink ice ring. I found my ring.

I'd like to speak out about politics. I am a conservative Republican and the Democrats need to get over it. We won. So to the liberal Democrats can do nothing but name calling and making racist remarks. Believe in everything and stand for nothing. That's the way the Democrats believe. Liberalism, that's true liberalism. So, I can say to Mr. Dubya, Mr. President, you rule for the next three years, get on with the job.

This is in response to watch the workers. I'm not surprised that this young woman does not have a job. Number one, if she had the same attitude seeking employment that she had composing this letter, I'm not surprised she doesn't have a job. Number two, the comment on 'fat lazy women' her words, not mine, failed to mention her definition of fat - 120 pounds or more? Number three, if her grammar was atrocious in public as in her letter, again I'm not surprised she doesn't have a job. Number four, good looks are in the eye of the beholder. You can be pretty on the outside, but if you're ugly on the inside, that is what shines through. Number five, in my opinion you need anger management classes. Number six, Wal Mart and Lowe's are always hiring and you can put your application in at the computer kiosk where no fat women can turn you down. All I can say is you need to lose that I'm better than you attitude and maybe you can get a job. Good luck and in my opinion, you are going to need it.

I hear that the parents of the child who died of staff infection are being prosecuted because their house is dirty. How ridiculous. Many people get staff infections from hospitals, so then who do you prosecute?

On my computer I'm watching CNBC live. Y'all was having a fit when Clinton was in and the deficit was $2 billion. Now today it's $10 billion and the cost is gonna keep going up, up and up. I guess that's what you get for putting in a Republican.

I was reading in the paper where someone was worried about Jeb Bush's son being arrested for public intoxication and whether he would be prosecuted or not. I wonder what happened to Billy Carter when Jimmy Carter was president. I mean, he was a public drunk and we didn't hear of any prosecution against him. Wonder what happened there?

Could someone tell me when the principal here in Southeast Elementary in Sikeston is going to be on the Price is Right? I know it's in October, but I don't know the date.

The segment aired Oct. 5

I just wanted to make a comment about Page 8, Sept. 29 edition of the Standard Democrat. That's the opening page of the Sports section and it concerns the article about the Farmington - Sikeston game. Whoever gets the information together for the numbers game, which is the side columns on either side of the page, I take my hat off to you and say God bless you for trying to make our Sikeston Bulldogs look somewhat decent in some aspect. In the recent past, I'm sure it's not an easy task to do. There's not much to write about.
