I've heard or read, that for the last 50 or 60 years, law schools do not teach a thorough inspection of the Constitution for its original intent, but rather focus on the "Precedents of Judge's Opinions" about what the Constitution 'meant to say.' (And even then, only those opinions that support a subversive view of the Constitution, especially those spawned over the last 70 years or so.) In the ever increasing clamor for new morality about the 'evil undeserving rich' (just because they are rich by ever changing standard) and the 'righteous deserving poor' (just because they are poor by by an ever changing standard) why don't they ever hear these wise words of warning from one particular U.S. Supreme Court Justice in 1898? This was at a time when Marxist philosophy was first gaining introduction into the American psyche toward the end of the 19th Century? Listen up! . . ."Here I close my opinion. I could not say less in view of questions of such gravity that go down to the very foundations of our government. If the provisions of the Constitution can be set aside by an Act of Congress, where is the course of usurpation to end? The present assault upon capital is but the beginning. It will be but the stepping-stone to others, larger and more sweeping, till our political contests will become a war of the poor against the rich; a war growing in intensity and bitterness." - Justice Stephen J. Field (1816-1899) U.S. Supreme Court Justice Source: United States Supreme Court opinion, Pollock v. Farmers Loan & Trust Co. (1898) This is the only template Democrats know how to run on. It was foretold over 100 years ago. They used to call themselves Liberals, until it became obvious they are opposed to true Liberty. So now they've adopted the new name "progressive." Progress? For whom? For what? Not America! And certainly not our "Republic." The only thing they want "Progress" on is their "Marxist agenda!" And they are deceiving fewer and fewer of us. That is not progress! So again there new name is just another lie.

I want to speak out on what a great job the city of Sikeston is doing cleaning up the city. The only comment that I have that would be negative are the consignment stores in the town that have their porches full of various items, most of them not worth anything. If you come into Sikeston on the east side it's the first thing you see. I think the city should send them a warning or ask them to clean their porches or send them a fine. Even the building owner should be contacted. Otherwise, Sikeston is doing a wonderful job keeping up our city.

I think it's sad that we have such a influx of pit bulls that run loose in the city of Miner, and nothing can be done to protect us. Now they are wanting to raise our property taxes even more. The school tax is already 80 percent of my real estate tax, which I already have to pay $700 a year. I thought people with dangerous animals were supposed to have insurance.

This is to the people in Charleston who are watering their yards. It's hot, it's dry. At the end of the week, people were watering their yards until the water was out in the streets. Just because we have a big tank and an adequate supply of water, there's no need in you wasting water. Y'all who run your water, you turn it on and you leave and it runs all day, there should be a law that you use so much water. Stop wasting it.
