Poor dear naive Shirley. Hang on to your bible and remain in a state of fear. 8 months ago
Tax the fat people too, on their greasy fast food! And tax the drunks on their booze! Tax the idiots that drive big noisy diesal trucks!! Oh yea!8 months ago
I Wish they would raise taxes on unhealthy fast food. I am sick of looking at grossly obese people. Gimme a break. If u raise taxes on cigarettes, to be fair, all "vices" tax rates should be raised as well. Dr. Ratcliff---what is the health care costs of a morbidly obese person!? Diabetes, joint replacements, heart disease, high blood pressure? And booze too! :)8 months ago

See! This is exactly what that letter meant. You are not Christian?? You are not welcome. Tea baggers are scary!! They deny science. They have voted to deny their children science. And they will probably vote for Akins!! That man let his true colors shine thru in his blundering statement regarding rape and pregnancy. If this idiot is elected it will be proof that Missouri is too full of religious zealots that want it their way or the highway. No compromise. No thought for anyone that may not share their radical Christian views. Ahhhh, Missouri!! Obese, puppy mills, meth labs, and where a legitimate rapist's baby is a blessing from God!! 10 months ago
Akins remarks about rape and how if it is legimate a woman will not get pregnant is a perfect example of how the far right radical Christians can be pretty darn scary! They want to pray away the gay and rapist's sperm. They feel it is wrong for gays to marry. They scream no to abortion, yet do not want their tax dollars going to social welfare programs to help care for that same baby. My third grade teacher taught me that people built the USA so they would have the freedom of religion without persecution. I interpreted that to mean any religion. Alcoholics Anonymous would call this your own personal higher power! The Native Americans--perhaps the earth itself. Jewish, Hindu, Muslim, I believe in their right to believe as they will. And I too felt that giant cross at the fair was inappropriate and unwelcoming to any non-in your face Christian. 10 months ago
Watchful Eye!! You never answered my question! Why do you care?? Why would it affect your life at all?? To you work for an insurance company that would have to supply medical insurance to employers of gay spouses?? I just don't understand why it would even bother you! It is none of your concern!!! Gays have been around since the beginning of time!! It is not a new phenomenon from 1980!!! When gays started leaving the closet!! To me it is blatant discrimination and bigotry--written into the state's constitutions that ban a legal gay marriage. And yes, you far right Christians scare me!! So much hate, in the name of Jesus Christ!! Freedom of religion only means freedom of different forms of Christianity! I have gay friends whose commitment to each other is far stronger and more loving than some of my heterosexual frie nds. Republicans say they want less government--but they want government all over banning gay marriage!! All over a woman's right to decide what to do with her own body! If you believe St. Peter will meet you at the Golden Gate and not allow you admittance to heaven because you respect your gay neighbors, friends, and most likely an extended family member, well by golly, you better continue your hate in the name of God!!May 14, 2012
Why do you care? Why does it bother you?? I just don't understand you far right Christians!! And yes! Homosexuality does exist in the animal world!! Have you ever owned a dog?? Goodness--females will try to mount other females. Males will mount a male human leg!! I thought Jesus was supposed to be about LOVE!! If two ppl are in a loving committed relationship--let them form a legal union and benefit from it as heterosexuals---medical care and taxes. Look at the divorce rate among heterosexuals!! Geez, lady, why do you care? Equal rights for everyone!!! 10% of our population is gay! It is time for bigotry and hate to stop---especially in the name of Christianity. Seperation of state and religion?? Please!! Why do you care?? Are gays fornicating on your front lawn?? Live and let live!!! Signed, a heterosexual woman who has been married once for 29 years!!

The road is in terrible condition. There are huge potholes, rippling, ruts, and the sides are crumbling away. Bill Schuck stated there would be 2.4 cars an hour traveling this tiny windy private road. This is simply not true. The traffic is incredible. Perhaps EE patrons and volunteers should be charged a toll!! Or the county should take over the maintainance of this road. The Missourian can check to verify but this is also a fact. EE has done nothing to comply with the conditions of their CUP. They still do not hold a commercial building permit! These permits are part of the county's assurance that the building is safe and up to code for all who use it. How the county has let this slip for 21 months is baffling. And EE has done nothing regarding the stated condition of building a parking lot. It would seem EE believes itself above rules and regulations.

I believe everything Prop B stands for. Annual vet checks!! Yes! Space! Yes! Dogs are kept like chickens in these huge scale legal puppy mills now! One lady--totally legit, told me she had 150 Pugs! 150! They had their own building with automatic waterers and feeders! Like Chickens! She did not even spend feeding time with the poor dogs. and think, she probably has puppies from 1/4 to 1/3 of then at a time. So she has up to 500 dogs at a given time. Pugs were bred to warm laps! How can they do their job in a facility like that? I have my own flock of chickens because I do not believe the way they are cared for is humane! I do not think dogs should be treated like livestock and the way livestock is being treated is often times horrid and disgusting. All you far right wingers, government is for the ppl by the ppl. Hay, you are not allowed to cook meth, fly down the highway at 100 miles an hour or own more than 3 dogs in many municipalities! Big business is regulated for our own protection against toxic emissions and huge oil spills and safe drugs and food. You want all your freedoms and your right to pack a concealed weapon, (and I seem to remember it failing at the ballot box twice!!) All your rights and freedoms from big government and taxes, but don't think gay people should have equal rights! You guys scare me bad bad bad! Well, I thank my government everyday for freedom from all the pollutants and our schools and firefighters, our libraries and parks. I would like stricter regulations on all the big energy producers and our food industry. I don't like eating meat full of hormones and antibiotics, and thinking the poor animal never even felt the sun on it's back.
Dr. Stoltz wrote a retraction because the Humane Society of Franklin County supports his stand? IDK!
And until people across the country quit buying puppy milled pets---something somehow needs to help protect these dogs. Let them move to Arkansas!Nov 1, 2010
