The president is now trying to place the blame for his failed economy on Congressional gridlock and they certainly share the blame. The truth is that the problem originates in the $137 million shadow government that has been set up in the White House. his appointed czars that continuously spew out job-killing regulations with no oversight represent the president’s agenda. they certainly don’t represent the people of this country. Congress should probably be blamed for not shutting this fiasco down. There is no constitutional basis for their existence. he has never installed a legitimate cabinet. how is it that the Morgan County Courthouse has so many rude and hateful employees? Is it because it starts at the top and sifts down? or is it a requirement to be employed there? Those people you are treating so badly are paying your salaries, you know. it is incumbent on every generation to pay its own debts as it goes, a principle which if acted on, would save one-half the wars of the world … Thomas Jefferson. too bad Obammie doesn’t believe this. Now that they’ve struck down the healthcare mandate, all middle-class and working-class taxpayers that have private health insurance should drop it whether they can afford it or not. I get downright giddy at the thought of lying in a hospital bed or the ER knowing it’s going to cost Sarah Palin, Paris Hilton and all those other useless people that are rich and famous for no reason more on their healthcare premiums. I figure they owe the middle-class, we’ve been paying for their tax cuts for 12 years now they can pay for not only our healthcare but, also for all the illegals they’re always railing about. At least Obama required they pay something, this way they get away without paying a dime all the cost gets handed to the rich. this is way better than raising taxes on them, they have no choice but to pay. Obama’s mandate is ruled unconstitutional but Romneycare and car insurance isn’t. funny how that works, huh? OK, come on, everyone who bought raffle tickets for PAWS, if your check was returned, you were notified by your bank, please don’t make these folks who volunteered to sell tickets chase you, or even worse stiff them. we all deposited your checks and wrote one to PAWS. Scott County’s 911 service is paid by a surcharge of $350 a line. In recent years the declining number of land lines has reduced funding for emergency dispatch by thousands of dollars, prompting the need to make cuts. Wake up, Brown County. it was said this would not happen in Brown County. And why couldn’t it? to the person who is complaining about the troops fighting in the Middle East saying that he or she has never been threatened by those countries. The reason you haven’t been threatened is because we are there. we protect you from things you have no clue about, so instead of complaining about us why don’t you try and support us. oh yeah, and did you forget that it was the people from the Middle East that attacked this great country in 2001? my eyes are going crossed and I still have a headache from reading the rants of idiots in Open Line Online. “does anyone know where I can buy a season pass for the Virginia football season?” I realize you think that is a funny comment. but let me explain to you why it’s really not all that humorous. The spiteful and vindictive fools at A-C , opted out of the sports co-op with Virginia within a month of the consolidation vote earlier this year. they, of course, had every legal right to do so, but the honorable thing would have been for the A-C Board to notify Virginia that this would be the last year of the sports co-op and they would not renew it for next year. Now you have the WIVC football teams having to deal with one less game than they had originally scheduled for. yes, they will get a “forfeit” victory, but this may cause them problems come playoff selection time later on. like I said earlier, the decent thing would have been for A-C to have given Virginia a years’ notice that they intended to end the sports co-op, but instead in their childish act of “payback,” they have messed up this year’s WIVC football season. sorry, but I don’t think that is really very funny. Par for the course. Scott County should just dissolve and allow Pike, Morgan, and Greene to absorb it. they already handle the police calls now thanks to the worthless sheriff. John Boehner is going to be at the Aaron Schock fundraiser in Edwards, Ill. Isn’t that where the Aryan Nation’s compound is? The constitution does not call for separation of church and state. it actually states that the government can’t restrict or mandate the practice of religion. Atheism itself is a religion so it is actually a violation of the constitution for the government to mandate the removal of religious symbols or prohibit prayer in public venues. The first Amendment states that the government cannot prohibit. this to the guy who posted about his girlfriend almost hitting two children on bikes recently on Hardin Street: maybe she should also slow down number one, and number two, stop texting you if you’re not in the auto, and number three, if you’re in the auto, stop fooling around with you. she should be anticipating what these children are about to do and be watching them. Unions collect huge amounts of cash, pay no taxes, produce no product rather than a misplaced sense of entitlement to other people’s money. they are worse than any corporation. Has anyone ever audited a union to see where the funds really go? What gives? Spending all this money on the Morgan County courthouse and still have to enter it as second-class citizens through the basement door. another Jacksonville screw-up. Aren’t we, the citizens of America, entitled to the same gasoline prices that Europeans have, huh? The big oil companies are the only reason why we don’t enjoy the gasoline prices people in Europe enjoy. Manchester must have a tea party fire department, then. Something that is real nonsense and unacceptable is taking the Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid away from the elderly and disabled before cutting aid to foreign nations and cutting the pensions, salaries, and healthcare for those politicians pushing this agenda. Anyone who supports ending these programs just may be a Nazi. to the teacher who says nobody who says if we use marijuana and other drugs we should have to pay for our own health issues if the use of these drugs caused our health problem. What about prescription drugs? I’ve used them for years and all drugs have side effects for your information and they aren’t always pleasant. should we, if prescribed by a doctor, also have to pay for the long-term use of these drugs? The biggest conspiracy theory of all is the U.S. government’s version of Sept. 11, 2001. Infowars.com because there is a war on for your mind. to the young teacher in the Open Line commenting about people not having an education: I got news for you Mr. I have an education and I can read and comprehend what I read. I also know what SIU Carbondale is like, and, as a matter of fact, all colleges except one, Bringham Young University, all are non-stop parties. you say you had two children just in time to receive the tax credit, wow. Now you kind of contradict yourself bashing the people on Open Line on welfare and being tired of paying into Social Security for disabled people. you sound like a real card, Mr. High and Mighty Teacher and you’re receiving money for children of yours and also money from the taxpayers plus you’re off work more than you work. I know what I did for a living and it was a dangerous job. Your job? oh, well maybe you’ll suffer a paper cut on the finger. You’re very lucky and you’re not right, all people do not have the chance you had. You’re young and you’re education ain’t so high and mighty. Mr. Teacher, got some news for you, you’re going to be learning hopefully the rest of your life. Anyone know why The Riverlook Tavern is closed in Beardstown? if you are fed up with high gas prices, write to your congressman and U.S. senators, tell them you are fed up with those prices, and demand that we have gas prices comparable to those of Europe. Frustration, anger, disappointment, and even a keen sense of betrayal well up from time to time in you and many others, but if it is any comfort please remember that you were not the only people who voted for President Obama. we are not just talking about closing a school and sending them together to one of the other remaining schools, we are talking about destroying a community and its sense of community in so doing. do not close Washington or Franklin schools. Can someone explain how taking money from someone who has a proven record of revenue, giving it to a government that has a proven record of inefficiency and mismanagement, who then give it to their cronies and people who have a proven record of being incapable of helping themselves, is a good idea? to the caller who didn’t know the difference between entitlements, investments or charity. The key is welfare is not charity and taxes are not charity. if taxes fund it, then it is welfare. Getting rid of their higher-paid employees and replacing them with lower-paid new hires is the Republicans’ idea of job creation. Farmers don’t receive an entitlement. they get a subsidy. Is there corruption involved? Of course there is. it comes from the government. People are seldom diligent when spending someone else’s money. Well said, Richard Nelson. it is sad to see my once-proud and respected GOP turn into what it has become. they now embrace the politics of fear and hatred toward all but the upper class. it seems the rants, raves and diatribes of Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity carry more weight than compassion for their fellow man. do not close Washington nor Franklin Elementary Schools. The School Board should put an end to the destructive policies and rhetoric that have eroded confidence in our public schools, demoralized teachers, and put off the maintenance of our buildings that has already forced the closure of schools like Jefferson and Lafayette. So the teabaggers want to call themselves the Teapublicans. more fitting names are the “Teapukes” or the “Teahadists.” if you don’t know what the tea party’s terrorist actions were first with the threat of shutting down the government and then the debt ceiling crisis they created, then you are an idiot. There wouldn’t be any $25,000 meth labs to clean up if they could buy it legally. Is the Drug War worth it to the taxpayers? The person complaining about tattoos must be to big of a coward to get one. Tattoos are nothing more than artwork on flesh. Beautiful. let me get this straight. Joe Farmer has received over a million dollars in welfare and owns thousands of acres of land. no wonder we are in such a mess. The picture in the paper of the old elm tree being taken down on Valleyview does not coincide with the picture. someone might be missing a tree they didn’t know about. its upsetting that we would fly soldiers into a battlegrounds on an outdated Chinook helicopter that you can hear coming 10 miles away moves so slow and is so large. they were like sitting ducks. if we can’t afford updated equipment bring these courageous men and women home. we were at Walmart and saw boys and girls with tattoos all over their body and weren’t out of school yet. Wow, we wonder where they got all that money to pay to look like freaks. Hmmm. Are you kidding, Richard Nelson? did you not listen to the entire broadcast or just to MSNBC? did you not catch what happened after the next elections? Dream? For whom? I see that even with opposition, South Jacksonville pushed the zoning issue through. What happened to representing the public? to the person who thinks a public education system is essential to the future of anything should check out the Link cards, food stamps, public housing and the state of Illinois budget, the federal budget, Medicaid or any other thing a government touches. What has happen to people that all they want is a handout? “dear Liar Repuke” and I stopped reading because I knew I wouldn’t read anything intelligent, just the typical mud-slinging of a socialist liberal. Dick Nelson, you should be ashamed of yourself. you use your “intelligence” to spread fear and ignorance. you pretend to state one side fairly and then sell the other side short. all of your letters to the editor should be titled “Deconstructing education.” Here’s an idea: Close North, Washington and Franklin schools and build a state-of-the-art elementary school on the Turner property. Let’s tattoo a bar code on the people getting welfare, and that includes the farmers. Who are you kidding? The same idiot is making all these Obama comments. Twenty-five thousand dollars for a meth cleanup? I can do it for less than $5 with a gallon of gas and a match. before I moved to Jacksonville, the only place where I’d ever seen women with tattoos was in the freak show at the carnival. There are women with tattoos everywhere you look in Jacksonville. I think this town must be the tattooed woman capital of the world. sorry to say, but I think it makes these women, and the town itself, look trashy and low-class. Was that a debate last night or a new reality show called Send In The Clowns. I didn’t think it was possible but, they were even more stupid than the first time. it was hilarious. President Bachmann and first dudette — not in this lifetime. keep your stocks and bonds. Gold may or may not be a good investment. Credit cards are fine if you pay the full balance at the end of the month. if not, you are spending more than you are taking in and are part of the problem. you will soon get a personal lesson that debt is a problem. Those that pay in to entitlement programs through their taxes are entitled to the amount that they paid in. many are drawing from the programs that have not contributed. this is welfare, charity, handouts or bribes but they certainly are not entitled to it. The supercommittee that has been set up is one more step away from representative government and toward government by committee which worked so well for the USSR and chairman Mao. The poetic lines come from “The New Colossus,” a poem written by Emma Lazarus (1849-1887), an American Jewish poet born in New York City. she is best known for this sonnet written in 1883; its lines appear on a bronze plaque in the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty in 1912. Her political views are unknown, since women couldn’t vote until the 1920s. if corporations aren’t people neither are unions, family planning, the American Red Cross, Acorn, etc. Dehumanizing an organization doesn’t give you the right to steal from it. maybe you should try to form a corporation and employ some people. I’ve held a union job for the past 30 years and I can honestly say I am better off today than I would have been had I not been a member of a union. Since the infrastructure in this country needs repair, maybe we can take the people drawing unemployment and let them lean on a shovel handle so that the union people could actually earn their pay. my niece with her nose piercing got just what she needed, another hole in her head. The Republican plan to get us out of Iraq and Afghanistan certainly wouldn’t have included starting a third war in Libya without congressional consent that no one can explain the need for. The answer certainly isn’t to give our sovereignty to NATO. Why are all compact fluorescent light bulbs made in China? look into a mirror, and then think about tattoos. a mark for life. Yuck. For those who are tired of call centers not having American English-speaking operators: you can ask to speak to someone in the USA and they have to re-route your call, as they are legally obligated to do this. Wooho, yippe skippy. Nut job Bachmann won the irrelevant worthless Iowa straw poll. Proof they’re still a bunch of Idiots Out Wandering Around. I’ll bet her and Mr. Fancy Panties are dancing the hokey pokey tonight. she might want to change her stand on raising the debt ceiling. She’ll have to raise it a whole lot of times with the Ryan plan and all those extra tax breaks to her corporate sponsors. Minnesota said Iowa can keep her, forever. she won’t win any polls there. I see that Obama is going on tour this week. he will be reaching out to listen to the heartbeat of the people of the Midwest. In reality, this will be a taxpayer-funded campaign bus trip to three key swing states.
