    Trump’s a real pro. Bought the Trump Plaza Hotel for $400 million, and it was repo’ed by the bank. Bought a yacht for $29 million, it was repo’ed by the bank. Built 4 casinos at a cost of $3 BILLION, filed for bankruptcy and went out of business, stiffing contractors and employees, and destroying the casino business in Atlantic City. Started Trump Airlines, never made a profit, planes and helicopters repo’ed by Citibank. Trump Mortgage, Trump Vodka and Trump Steaks all went out of business, and so did Trump University, which fraud investigators closed, and which still owes students and contractors money. A stable financial genius, all right.

          Here is a quote from a Kentuckian. “Tuesday’s election night win was more a reflection of our collective rejection of a bullying political despot than our enthusiasm for a political dynasty. We were sick and tired of a now-hopefully lame duck governor who attacked almost all of us across the state. Republican incumbent Matt Bevin belittled Black people, dismissed immigrants and refugees and repeatedly attacked our teachers, among others. If we didn’t speak up for ourselves at the voting booth, we knew there would have been no one left to speak for us.”
          Note the statement about rejecting a “bullying political despot”. Does that sound familiar? It should but I will give you a hint of another “bullying political despot” . First letter of his last name is T and the last 4 letters tell you what he is – another name for ass. Same as you.

Do you go to funerals in churches and listen to the preacher read religious scripture from the Bible? Do you celebrate Christmas. Does your family know how you feel?I’m not bashing you, because you have freedom of choice, like everyone else, It’s been said that you cant have your cake and eat it too.

    Yep let’s give everyone a reward and no matter how low we go, let our education go even lower at any cost to.make people happy! What kind of message are we sending to our young people? It sounds like young people do not have to strive and make their lives better because they will be rewarded no matter what. Why would a person strive to improve themselves when all they have to do is show up? Sounds like a typically socialist mindset. No matter who you are we will simply give it to you and your minds can bestupid. We can control stupidity but not intelligence.

    Shout out to the 14,000 to 15,000 people – registered voters in Mason City – who won’t take the time (10 minutes) to vote this coming Tuesday, Nov 5th. Sorry, the truth is never invited to the party. There are 20,000 registered voters in Mason City, yet 14,000-15,000 of you (yes, I’m talking to you) will not bother to vote. Don’t let a small group of voters decide this election. Show Mason City you care. I need your help – I need your vote. I can’t help you if you don’t help me.

    NIACC AUDITORIUM:They need to look at the auditorium as a separate identity and hold the GM accountable for all utilities and outcomes from shows. It is a business, it should be run as such. They keep hiring the office secretaries/past music teachers that have no business knowledge. If they were actually held accountable for expenditures, the public could see the failure. Music teachers are NOT concert booking agents or promoters. The once great facility is now a squeaky chaired mess. Maybe promoting with the actual school population in mind might be wise. Not too many college kids want to see “Dumbo live on stage”.

      Right on all counts, Joel. It would help if they had some actual entertainment/music industry contacts, as a number of people in the area do, just not anybody who works there. Music Man Square has the same problem, no manager in the past or now has been properly qualified to run a venue, which is a lot different than teaching music or possessing a degree. You need to know how to make the place cash flow, and they have yet to get anybody at NIACC or Music Man Square who does, but they won’t hire anybody like that.

        I am so sorry, the current elected officials have not made ANY effort to bring in jobs with sustainable wages. Other towns around us have drawn businesses that pay good wages, but it seems they bypass Mason City.

        Still, the leader of Mason City…namely the unelected dictator of the our elected officals….still continues to put the cart before the horse in building a multi-million dollar venue that few will use, and a hotel that will be out classed by one in Clear Lake, and apartments that are far too expensive for the average person in town.

        Oh, did I forget the River Walk proposed by the Mayor….the one that will rival what they have in San Antonio?

        Who will move to a city if there are NOT economic reasons to do so? Many have moved out, and will continue to depart, because there just is not the wages they desire.

          Mason City was able to leverage private investment to build a recreational destination for the region and salvage one of the largest tax paying pieces of real estate in North Iowa. Clear Lake gave a developer $3M to build a no-name hotel on a prime piece of real estate (a hotel would have located here had there been no incentives). Mason City got the much better deal.

            Yes, leverage. What has come of that?

            Thus far, no money has shown up other than the local bonds which we in Mason City will have to pay back.

            Then what about the $2 million the hockey people said they would pay? Nothing so far, not a penny.

            The private investment has yet to break ground. Yet, the unelected Dictator of Mason City demanded the project get underway. Without that “leveraged” cash in hand.

            Max was not in office during the Presage debate. And opposition to the plant was larger than those who supported it.

            Now then, your claim about HyVee’s distribution centre. The decision for that centre was made in 2016. Mr Weaver was not in office (left office in 2011) when HyVee made the decision for Austin.

            And for the record, in March, HyVee decided not to build that centre at all. But KC is getting a new centre.

            Largest tax paying property in North Iowa? I think not. Without taking out a yard stick, nor spending hours on the County GIS, the largest tax paying real estate in North Iowa is a railroad.

            In fact, right across the street is a property worth almost 3 times the value of the Mall. And they pay their $335.5k every year.

            At the moment, the Mall has not been salvaged. It has a tax lien of $161k, and still owes $325k. Of course that means no TIF funds as a result, which was supposed to be use to fund the Ice Arena bonds.

            And where will that leave us?

            Since only a small segment of the community will go watch amateur hockey, the rest of us will end up paying for the facility. There will be no increase in people visiting Mason City than we already for amateur hockey games.

            We are losing another big box store, losing 20 jobs. We lost 100 jobs at Shopko. There are 21 vacant storefronts downtown. There have been other job losses.

            The population in Mason City has been declining for a few years, with no end in sight, and no prospect for sustainable jobs coming.

            So please tell us, how this is a positive thing for the taxpayers in the community?

            I can’t tell if you’re purposely trying to be misleading with many of your arguments or whether you really think those things are true? Example: the mall taxes are not going unpaid. Truth:the mall taxes have been paid in full, but a portion has been paid (with interest) late. Tax liabilities NEVER go away. They are always paid. The TIF financing will be collected unquestionably.

            We agree that physical retail markets have too much capacity in a macro sense. This isn’t unique to Mason City and physical stores are closing everywhere. This is why it’s fantastic we have leadership that realizes we have a problem. One of our largest tax paying entities in the region (you verified this claim in a very circuitous way) was in danger of going away.

            You also seem to agree with me that this town hasn’t added jobs in decades. I fail to see how Weaver would reverse this trend and you offer no theory or evidence how he would either. Seems to me, Weaver has actually been anti growth. He’s actually chased away existing businesses (IC Systems) or lead groups who’ve chased away good prospects (Prestage)

They realized the President was just a man (or woman) just like everybody else and he/she should not be above the law nor should he be worshipped like a god. You haven’t figured that out yet.

    Folks, you MUST read this!
    Moments later, former Colorado Governor Richard D. Lamm stood up and gave a stunning speech on how to destroy America. The audience sat spellbound as he described eight methods for the destruction of the United States. He said, ‘If you believe that America is too smug, too self-satisfied, too rich, then let’s destroy America. It is not that hard to do. No nation in history has survived the ravages of time. Arnold Toynbee observed that all great civilizations rise and fall and that ‘An autopsy of history would show that all great nations commit suicide.” ‘Here is how they do it,’ Lamm said: ‘First, to destroy America, turn America into a bilingual or multi-lingual and bicultural country… History shows that no nation can survive the tension, conflict, and antagonism of two or more competing languages and cultures. It is a blessing for an individual to be bilingual; however, it is a curse for a society to be bilingual. The historical scholar, Seymour Lipset, put it this way: ‘The histories of bilingual and bicultural societies that do not assimilate are histories of turmoil, tension, and tragedy.’ Canada , Belgium , Malaysia , and Lebanon all face crises of national existence in which minorities press for autonomy , if not independence. Pakistan and Cyprus have divided. Nigeria suppressed an ethnic rebellion. France faces difficulties with Basques, Bretons, Corsicans and Muslims.’ Lamm went on:

      ‘Second, to destroy America, invent ‘multiculturalism’ and encourage immigrants to maintain their culture. Make it an article of belief that all cultures are equal; that there are no cultural differences. Make it an article of faith that the Black and Hispanic dropout rates are due solely to prejudice and discrimination by the majority. Every other explanation is out of bounds. ‘Third, we could make the United States an ‘Hispanic Quebec’ without much effort. The key is to celebrate diversity rather than unity. As Benjamin Schwarz said in the Atlantic Monthly recently: ‘The apparent success of our own multi-ethnic and multicultural experiment might have been achieved not by tolerance but by hegemony. Without the dominance that once dictated ethnocentricy and what it meant to be an American, we are left with only tolerance and pluralism to hold us together.’ Lamm said, ‘I would encourage all immigrants to keep their own language and culture. I would replace the melting pot metaphor with the salad bowl metaphor. It is important to ensure that we have various cultural subgroups living in America enforcing their differences rather than as Americans, emphasizing their similarities.’ ‘Fourth, I would make our fastest growing demographic group the least educated. I would add a second underclass, unassimilated, undereducated, and antagonistic to our population. I would have this second underclass have a 50% dropout rate from high school.

        My fifth point for destroying America would be to get big foundations and business to give these efforts lots of money. I would invest in ethnic identity, and I would establish the cult of ‘Victimology…’ I would get all minorities to think that their lack of success was the fault of the majority. I would start a grievance industry blaming all minority failure on the majority.’

        ‘My sixth plan for America’s downfall would include dual citizenship, and promote divided loyalties. I would celebrate diversity over unity. I would stress differences rather than similarities. Diverse people worldwide are mostly engaged in hating each other – that is, when they are not killing each other. A diverse, peaceful, or stable society is against most historical precept. People undervalue the unity it takes to keep a nation together. Look at the ancient Greeks. The Greeks believed that they belonged to the same race; they possessed a common language and literature; and they worshiped the same gods. All Greece took part in the Olympic games. A common enemy, Persia, threatened their liberty. Yet all these bonds were not strong enough to overcome two factors: local patriotism and geographical conditions that nurtured political divisions. Greece fell. ‘E. Pluribus Unum’ — From many, one. In that historical reality, if we put the emphasis on the ‘pluribus’ instead of the ‘Unum,’ we will ‘Balkanize’ America as surely as Kosovo.’

          Next to last, I would place all subjects off limits. Make it taboo to talk about anything against the cult of ‘diversity.’ I would find a word similar to ‘heretic’ in the 16th century – that stopped discussion and paralyzed thinking. Words like ‘racist’ or ‘xenophobe’ halt discussion and debate. Having made America a bilingual/bicultural country, having established multi-cultum, having the large foundations fund the doctrine of ‘Victimology,’ I would next make it impossible to enforce our immigration laws. I would develop a mantra: That because immigration has been good for America , it must always be good. I would make every individual immigrant symmetric and ignore the cumulative impact of millions of them.’ In the last minute of his speech, Governor Lamm wiped his brow. Profound silence followed. Finally he said, ‘Lastly, I would censor Victor Davis Hanson’s book ‘Mexifornia.’ His book is dangerous. It exposes the plan to destroy America. If you feel America deserves to be destroyed, don’t read that book.’

            There was no applause. A chilling fear quietly rose like an ominous cloud above every attendee at the conference. Every American in that room knew that everything Lamm enumerated was proceeding methodically, quietly, darkly, yet pervasively across the United States today. Discussion is being suppressed. Over 100 languages are ripping the foundation of our educational system and national cohesiveness. Even barbaric cultures that practice female genital mutilation are growing as we celebrate ‘diversity.’ American jobs are vanishing into the Third World as corporations create a Third World in America Take note of California and other states. To date, ten million illegal aliens and growing fast. It is reminiscent of George Orwell’s book ‘1984..’ In that story, three slogans are engraved in the Ministry of Truth building: ‘War is peace,’ ‘Freedom is slavery,’ and ‘Ignorance is strength..’ Governor Lamm walked back to his seat. It dawned on everyone at the conference that our nation and the future of this great democracy is deeply in trouble and worsening fast. If we don’t get this immigration monster stopped within three years, it will rage like a California wildfire and destroy everything in its path, especially The American Dream.

    These possible taxes to cover Medicare for all are absurd! I’d rather keep my current insurance and my current doctor and continue paying what I pay. Government has proven it cannot do very much efficiently or cost effectively. Let the free market decide what works and does not work. Once government controls health care, they will control what you eat, how you dress yourself, how you live, your exercise choices, and more importantly whether or not you need that life saving surgery based on your age, weight, sex, race, religion, and so many other factors that will decide if you live or die (I’m sure it would be based off of whether you’re a Republican or Democrat too).

    Drake Student Senate’s disappointing decision to block a conservative club from forming on campus last night is in direct conflict with the foundational principles of diversity of thought and exposure to adverse opinion that make college campuses a thriving environment. The decision is a disservice to the student body and is a historical low point for the Drake campus climate as a whole.

      She’s an attractive, educated, accomplished female, exactly the kind who won’t give a loser like you the time of day. That’s what really bothers you about her.

    Warren is the modern “intellectual.” Out of touch, out of time, out of her mind. Crazed and angry, fists flailing, punching the air to hide the fact she’s 70, not 35. She’s unelectable.

    “For the third time in a row since Common Core was fully phased in nationwide, U.S. student test scores on the nation’s broadest and most respected test have dropped, a reversal of an upward trend between 1990 and 2015. Further, the class of 2019, the first to experience all four high school years under Common Core, is the worst-prepared for college in 15 years, according to a new report.”
