Speakout 2/20

I was just curious to know what religion Barack Obama is.

As a child, Obama was raised without a religious faith. Currently, the Obamas are members of Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ.

I live in Morehouse and I want to complain about dogs running loose in town. They are getting into people's trash and scattering it and just being a nuisance. Do we not have a humane officer or someone to call?

I'm calling about all the people who want to whine about the war in Iraq and all the military people that are being killed. But none of them ever seem to mention the 3000 plus that died in New York City, Pennsylvania and Washington, D.C. that day. They are all forgotten about. But they all want to whine because their family members or somebody they know is being killed as a result of being in the military. Well, each and every one of those military personnel took an oath to do whatever it takes to defend this country and to do what they were told by the commander in chief, whether it be a Republican or a Democrat it doesn't really matter. So, if you don't want to take the oath, don't join the military. So many of them do it so they can do it for 20 years and then sit around and draw a check for the rest of their lives. Then they want to whine when they have to do something to earn that check. If you don't want to earn the check, don't sign up.

A male president's wife is called the first lady. If a female president is elected, what is her husband called?

Bill Clinton!

Hi. I have been an athletic director in St. Louis for 25 years and I've been coaching and around basketball for about 35. I just wanted to let everyone in this area know, Sikeston is a small town and a small school. There is no one in this town playing basketball that will make it to the pros. I guarantee it. And just another thing, a win is a win and a loss is a loss. Sikeston understands the win part, but they have no clue what a loss is. These are the sorest losers I've ever been around.

Well it's nice to know that Nancy Pelosi wants to debate whether or not to make it illegal to carry fighting chickens across the state line for abuse of the animals. But she refuses to allow a debate of carrying teenage girls across the state line for abortion. That's kind of interesting to me. One more thing. The Republican party has appointed as their new head man a Hispanic from down around Dayton, Florida or somewhere down there that believes in illegal immigration. So the Republican party has left me just like the Democrat party did. Vote Libertarian.
