wow 1 year, 4 months ago on Federal payment reductions will cost two hospitals millions

But the word is "Sequestration won't hurt or effect the masses"....at least so say those Washington nut balls who didn't have the common decency or professionalism to stick around and do their job. Nooooooooo these "ELECTED TYPES" felt if was best for everyone if they stood afar and called each other names and blaming the other side for not playing fair. It's not any one particular side, because they've all been goofin the pooch, but I do know this! The blame game has got to stop and some real work has got to get accomplished. So what about it folks? Everyone stop talking about how proud they are to be in living in this so called great country filled with soooooo many good people. Everyone stop talking about nothing and actually start doing something that helps. No more hand out's for free and the rich can't keep getting rich on the blood and sweat of the not so rich. Let's make it so nobody LEGALLY in this country goes to bed hungry and everyone earns their keep. Those on Gov't assistance...guess what you have a job...you'll be working in the communities you live in. I don't care if it's picking up paper, you are going to earn those Gov't dollars you've been getting...it's the basic concept that "a hard days work equates to a hard earned honest dollar". No work, no pay, the same goes for the elected types....NO WORK, NO PAY.... Ya wanna see this Sequester mess get cleaned up? American's/Missourians send pay stubs with the words "NO PAY DUE" to the McCains, Obama's Biden's, Isa's, Pauls, Nixon's, Schafer's, and all the other's politicians who are just wasting time. Tell these folk's they haven't earned their salary and therefore can't get paid and watch how fast problems start getting correctly resolved. Watch how these folks begin cooperating. What's really shameful...this is Memorial day and all over the world, American military folks will be honored for doing their job. But had they not done so. Not only would America be worse off...but these folks would have not gotten paid. Because in the military....you don't work...they dock your pay....you goof off, they dock your pay...you shirk you're responsibility, they reduce your rank and dock your pay. You don't measure up to serve...they reduce your rank, dock your pay and discharge you from the service! If that is good enough for these brave folks who serve in uniform...then it's good enough for the politicians who are suppose to be governing the civilian's left behind while they make the silly calls which place these brave people in harms way. I'm sick of it...the biggest hand out given isn't to the poor.....it's to these elected officials who are getting hefty pay checks for doing nothing! The American hand out has got to stop!!!!!

wow 1 year, 5 months ago on Five arrested after disturbance in JC Sunday

What weren't these folks thinking about? Confronting armed Po-leeece in order to help a acquaintance not get arrested are you kidding me. Everyone of these people needs to get some serious time for being stupid. Not prison time...just some good hard county time where they are working there buts off......because they've obviously got to much idle time on their hands. Maced...these dudes are lucky none of them got shot....and yes...when private citizens physically interfere with the arrest of a suspect that has already become physically confrontational...deadly force is authorized! I'm just glad the cops showed a bit of restraint and used the less lethal force. Good job copper's!!!

wow 1 year, 5 months ago on JCHS graduation rate lags state

No matter what you do...sooner or later the negative issues have to be properly dealt with.

Until...the urban, rural country, rich, poor, middle class, black, white, yellow, brown, green, male, female, Jew, Muslim, Christian, Hindu, etc, etc, are all are seen as equally important. We will continue to this shameful life style of the haves and have not's. I don't mean free hand out's. I mean true accountability.....those in position to help should help. But those in the position of receiving cannot be allowed to receive without being expected to consistently work at improving not only their situation, but that of their children and local community as well. Volunteering at a community center in order to receive government assistance equates to earning a wage! Properly maintaining the public housing building you live in equates to a decent, safe place for you to live in, as well as the next person who occupies that area after you have moved on to better times. NOBODY SHOULD GET HELP WITHOUT EARNING IT!!!!!

Sure formal education is the key, but let's not forget many a criminal has obtained vast amounts of formal education. So the reality is, it's what one chooses to do with that education which has the greater effect on our world, nation, state..."Jefferson City" our Cole County neighborhoods. So congrats to the few who have made it work, but the true victory will be when there's no longer a need for the "Alternative School"., the traditional High School situation is properly resolved, be it one HS or more...THIS ENTIRE PROCESS SHOULD STRESS THAT IN LIFE, EVERYONE HAS TO EARN THEIR KEEP AND DO THEIR SHARE OF THE WORK, SUFFERING AND ENJOYMENT. So moteitbe

wow 1 year, 5 months ago on Academic center strives to help struggling teens graduate

This is a good story of how motivated young people can get their lives on the right track...and for that I say "congrats"! On the other hand....there is still far to many young folks who choose the very bad alternative of following the G's, the Homie's, the Click, the Set, the gang, the crew, the posse, etc, etc, etc.. To them I say...unless you choose to change your life, things are gonna be rough on you and those you associate with, and it's all your fault for not making the right decision. To the folks in society who close their eye's and ears to everything outside of their personal neighborhood, I say this. No matter what you do...sooner or later the negative issues have to be properly dealt with.

Until...the urban, rural country, rich, poor, middle class, black, white, yellow, brown, green, male, female, Jew, Muslim, Christian, Hindu, etc, etc, are all are seen as equally important.

wow 1 year, 6 months ago on Missouri to stop copying concealed gun documents

If the people involved had been up front when originally asked about this issue, then there would be nothing wrong. After all the intent of this was to catch people who were/are claiming 100% disability, yet are illegally registered to Conceal and Carry a firearm....one cannot be 100% disabled and able to CCW. it doesn't work that way. So the intent of this information sharing was/is to prevent people from cheating the Social Security system.. and that's a good thing that required nothing more than people to be honest and up front from the beginning. Ok now that the truth is out...stop the Obama has your information commercials, stop the stuff about this being a violation of Constitutional rights..."cause it just ain't so"!!!

Mr. Nixon isn't helping himself by either not knowing what went on or trying to side step this either. Gov Nixon...man up tell em what happened and why it happened. Regretfully those involved have to be disciplined.....but that's all part of the job. Hey...Agnew got time in jail for his skullduggery, but Ollie North got a TV show for selling rockets to the Contra's for dope. John McCain got elected and reelected to Congress for his part in the Keating mess. Everybody still loves Clinton even after he spooged on that ladie's dress. And there has never been a Kennedy who served time for their womanizing and alcoholic related homicides. So what the hey for a few digit's...at least it was for a good reason.

All this complaining about some CCW info...I'm still trying to figure out why I still have to get a "Voter ID", especially since I've already showed my information in order to get my Driver's License. The SSA has my info, DOR has my info, the MSHP has my info and so do the Fed. So how many times do I have to prove who I am before I can execute my "CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT TO VOTE"?

wow 1 year, 7 months ago on Richardson awaits NFL draft after two seasons at Missouri

I wish Mr. Richardson the best in life, but I also think he has some issues to resolve. I won't get into how he was a deprived child who grew up in the inner city dodgin gangs and drugs..cause honestly I don't think that's Sheldon at all. Sheldon did come from the hood, but he didn't grow up as Nino Brown. Sheldon's deemons are much more dreadful than some hollywood drug dealer. Ya see Sheldon is a product of what happens when one is accepted for what they appear to be more so than what they are on the inside. In short...nobody forced the youngster Sheldon Richardson to use his brain more than he used his physical size...and unless Sheldon realizes that and corrects that drastic mistake. The world may never truly know what this young man really has to offer. Oh sure he may very well it make into the NFL, he may very well be an NFL stand out, but unless he uses his brain for more than a battering ram...when it's all over...Sheldon Richardson may not have the ability to read his documented accomplishments to hismelf or his off spring...and that would be a shame. Sheldon I wish you much success, but young man ya gotta use that brain of yours...cause the world don't care how big your dollars are. You still gotta know to count your loot.

wow 1 year, 8 months ago on Kraus renews effort to end front license plate

Mr. Watson...before you start shooting your mouth off about what the cops can or cannot do..."put yourself in their shoes" get your self off that cushy couch or desk chair and go out on the ride with a cop and experience what they are. Then pehpaps you'll see that the two license plate requirment isn't something to be taken lighly. Go out and do you own study and then make a decision. But just sitting on your butt and accepting the paper's being pushed accross your desk doesn't make you a politician that is trying to do something right...which could help people....no ...sitting on your butt, spouting off like you are...just makes you a politician and not a good one either!
