The voters who approved this referendum also expected the construction work and engineering work to be LOCAL. But the Board has went out of town many times over the years most recently they went to Rockford for their printer business. They don't mind taking money from the local taxpayers but don't seem to feel the local folks are good enough to provide the services needed. Hannibal had no…

Well let's look at this. A failed construction worker and a a total tool bag want to hire a construction manager knowing full well that there would be no point to it, especially when they're from out-of-town, because we have plenty of firms here that can handle it. And they did this just a few months before they're up for re-election? Leroy Jethro Gibbs doesn't believe in coincidence,…

Make it big enough to house all our criminals instead of releasing and re-arresting them. It's probably cheaper to keep them in a jail than what it costs to support them while they're out committing more crimes.

I love the thumbs-down without a dissenting comment. "I disagree completely with what you just said, but I have no idea why and can't formulate an argument in response!"

Strawman: Another Deed That Will Go Unpunished........

10 months, 1 week ago by Strawman

 

It was all about the video said Barack Obama. He said this back in September 2012 weeks before being reelected to a second term. It was all about the video said Barack Obama.  The lie was so good that Susan Rice appeared on five separate Sunday shows to tell everybody that the Benghazi attack was all about the video. Hillary Clinton said there was no attack-- it was all about THAT horrible video.   A video SO BAD our administration ran television commercials in Muslim countries to apologize for it.  And then, months later while giving testimony, Hillary Clinton asked, “what difference does it make?”

I suppose, Mrs. Clinton, it makes a difference to those who lost loved ones.  I mean, here we are 16 months after the Benghazi attack and the families of those killed and wounded still have no closure, the country has no closure, and the administration has no credibility. Here we are 16 months after the Benghazi attack and no one has been brought to justice, no one has been held accountable for their actions or lack thereof, and no one has been fired.   Susan Rice got a promotion, remember?  And you, Mrs. Clinton are gearing up to run for president.  Wow!!

Fox News (http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/01/13/benghazi-transcripts-top-defense-officials-briefed-obama-on-attack-not-video-or/)   has revealed in testimony given on June 26, 2013 that all we’ve been told by this administration has been false.  We now know that Leon Panetta, Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama were informed on the evening of September 11, 2012 that the attack on the American Embassy in Benghazi was just that---an attack.  And that the Obama administration, rather than tell the truth, and, in doing so, risk losing the upcoming election, chose, instead, to fabricate a tale so far fetched that only a chump would believe it.  And chumps we all were. 

In my wildest dreams I never thought I would be living in a country where black is no longer black and white is no longer white. We live in an age where we are continuously lied to and are expected to believe the lie. We are treated as chumps and then asked to prove that we’re not. We have taxation without representation---and there’s more on the way. We are being governed by those who no longer feel the need to hide their wrong doings.  Instead, by their actions and words, challenge you and I to do something about it.  The United States of America has become the home of taker and the hell with everyone else.

It says a lot when a President and his administration have been involved in numerous questionable events and have yet to be held accountable for any of them. It says a lot when officials near the top—the trusted leaders of the country—see and experience a wrongdoing and say nothing of it. It says a lot when good people are taxed and regulated into the poor house—their dreams shattered—their disposable income confiscated—their futures left in doubt.   It says a lot when a president who has fulfilled no promises in five years has now instituted something called “promise zones.”  Which, when translated means, “another bail out for those whose votes I need to buy.”   

But this is the new “transformed America.  This is the land of social justice and fairness for all. This is the land of the new minimum wage---the land of immigration reform that’s endorsed by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.  This is the land where 92 million citizens don’t work, but the unemployment rate continues to go down.   This is the land of millionaires in Congress—multi-million dollar vacations for the first family and friends—and a healthcare bill nobody read—that nobody wants—but everybody, save for friends of the president—will have to deal with.

This land is my land, this land is your land……..well, it used to be.
