Speakout 6/1

Friday, June 1, 2007

Call 471-6636

I've been wanting to call SpeakOut for quite sometime. Seems like starting back in April through May there have been so many calls about Miner. What is so big about Miner. They constantly have problems. So many things go on constantly. I just don't understand why there is so many problems and why are the citizens of Miner so stubborn they won't consolidate with Sikeston. They would be so much better off, and there would be so much better order. I would trust what goes on with the law in the area of Sikeston. I have been in Miner for quite some time and I cannot stand this place. I just think it's very sad that there are constant problems for an area this small. People should think about what's going on.

The only way we are going to send a message to the White House is we are going to need to vote them all out. Democrats and Republicans are not listening to us. We cannot afford to have all these Mexicans come over here and work in the United States. The Democrats want it and Bush wants it. If they don't want to listen to the people and care about the people in the United States, vote them out. Just vote them out. Get rid of them and get some new ones put in. Send them a message and maybe they'll start listening.

I just wondered why are the non-veterans running the American Legion club in Sikeston? Every Sunday afternoon you go in there and there's a bunch of kids running around the bar area. Somebody needs to do something about this. I just wanted to get this off of my chest and I hope you print this.

If you cops really want to give a ticket, why don't you come up here and sit at Wal-Mart? Y'all put a no left turn sign there between Wal-Mart and McDonald's and there are people turning left there all the time. If you would come out there and watch, I bet you could give tickets to at least 400 people.

I'd like to speak out about the person who is taking care of the cemetery behind the Mexican restaurant on Kingshighway. It's called Memorial Park. Instead of picking up the flowers before they mow it, that person is mowing over the artificial flowers and that cemetery is a wreck! It's the only one in town that looks that way so I'm assuming a different person is taking care of it. I just wanted to make people aware of the fact that that cemetery looks terrible.

Veteran affairs, draftees should have as much rights as other veterans. They did not volunteer. The government made them go so the government should take care of them.
