        MORE issues with MCHS’s cheer leading new advisor. First she takes the squads to Clear lake for pictures at their fire station now she made 3 cheerleaders sit out during the Homecoming game because they weren’t “cheerful” enough, during HOMECOMING cheers, Parents are pissed!!! They could see a cheer leading boycott of the last two games. Many phone calls being made to support this boycott, MCHS better step in FAST.

      I suggest you volunteer to coach a football team through the Parks and Rec department or the schools or whoever organizes the leagues. You seem to know a great deal about football so your expertise would be welcomed. All schools who have good teams year in and year out, have great youth programs where the kids learn the basics and develop the mentality it takes to be winners. It also helps the numbers a team has. Another thing you could do is volunteer as an assistant football coach at the high school or middle schools. Just let them have an earful of your take on the situation and what needs to be done, and I am sure they will be glad for the help. Don’t tell them to quit. Make them better.

      Base on their customer service they should have close up a long time ago.

      Went to buy a radio/HVAC center cluster and wanted to look at it before I bought it. I knew from car-parts.com that they had one in stock. Asked to see it before I bought it as several options/trims were available. The one brother kept telling me that it would fit and I said I know it fits but wanted to be sure it was the same as what I already had. He wouldn’t get off his duff to get it off the shelf unless I bought it, I wouldn’t buy it until I was sure it was the one I needed.

      A “no sale” that day at Van Horn’s. Never set foot foot in the place again.

But now they will allow trump to just before Nov. elections and while an investigation is going on…. Kennedy retired early. His SON is the ONLY banker in America that will loan trump money. Don’t you find it odd that his daddy retired early so trump could pick a REP judge? I bet you don’t. You hypocrite pubs make me gag. And Kav has NEVER tried a case in court… He’s only been a clerk… wow some qualifications…These figureheads trump picks are not fair play. They’re not qualified.

      Ford’s allegations were all staged from the democrats in an attempt to gain beleivability by saying she didn’t want it made public all while she cleared her social media, retained prominent liberal antiTrump lawyers, a ridiculous polygraph test done in a hotel room alone with a male stranger? Reminding everyone she was allegedly almost raped 36 years ago? And her life long friend disputed her story and the she was later approached by one of Christine Ford’s co-hearts trying to get her to lie and say it happened. Christine Ford has brought nothing but shame on real victims and should be investigated and charged for lying to the Senate committee and false allegations.

    I just discovered some VERY interesting posts online re our rights (as drivers) when snared at check points.
    There are MANY legal ways to REFUSE to answer their (Cops’) questions.
    But they ONLY work if YOU DO NOT CAVE IN TO THEIR DESPERATE ATTEMPTS TO COERCE/SUCKER YOU INTO CONVINCING YOU THAT THEY ARE ALLOWED TO STOP/FORCE ALL DRIVERS AT CHECK POINTS/SPEED TRAPS TO LICK THEIR SHOES…And allow them to demand you to MINDLESSLY OBEY ALL of THEIR COMMANDS (including searching your vehicle without your permission or a VALID reason to reason to do so; i.e.,
    If your vehicle reeks of weed. Or they see an open container of alcohol. Or your face is in the steering wheel and you’re snoring. Or they see hand grenades on the jump seat. etc….
    JUST BECAUSE THEY CARRY A BADGE. AND A GUN. If YOU want to drop to your knees in such situations, well, that is YOUR admission of: “I’m SCARED of cops! They can bully me any way they want to”!!!
    Find these posts (most with videos) yourself. Then also check out the Cops that SPEED (without being in pursuit ) SANS LIGHTS OR SIRENS. i am referring to more than 5mph over the posted speed limit. I have been stopped for doing *5* mph over the limit. I was not cited or searched, but I DID become part of a national citizenry data base. As have ALL traffic stop drivers AND THEIR PASSENGERS have become.part of a NATIONAL data base. Just saying..

      Bill, you have offered some bad advice. The obvious paranoia not withstanding, you seem to hold a grudge against Law Enforcement.

      This is not Mayberry any more, society has changed, and I am afraid not for the better. The criminal element in our community do not wear scarlet letters. They do everything possible to evade the consequences for their behavior. Law Enforcement is tasked with separating the chafe from the wheat, within the bounds of the law.

      They (Law Enforcement) are not above the law, and yes, some make poor choices. Overall however, in my contacts with them, they seem fair, and firm. Provoke them, or give them cause, and they will act accordingly. That, is what we pay them to do.

      Am I in their ‘database’, yep. Do I have anything to fear? The answer is no.

    More NIT censorship, I made the below comment earlier and it was deleted….what a bunch of BS.

    More Republican BS and lies of fiscal reponsibilty, ripping off the taxpayers.

    “Chuck Grassley says because he remains an active partner on his farm, he is justified in seeking government
    funding being offered to farmers impacted by ‘trade disruption”.
    Trump’s administration is offering financial assistance to farmers who are experiencing losses due to the Trump imposed tariffs.
    Grassley, Iowa’s Senator, said he plans to apply for assistance for his 750-acre Butler County farm, which grows corn and soybeans.”

    So the losses the farmers are now experiencing due to Trumps tariffs are now going to be covered by all of us, the taxpayers.
    How low can the Republicans go?
    They claim to be the guardians of low government costs, yet Grassley is just another hog at the US taxpayer trough.
    Grassley has alreaady received hundres of thousands of dollars in Farm welfare (they cal it subsidies)

    Grassley used to be a fairly decent Senator, now he is just a Republican hack and willing to sell his soul.

They used facts too not standard responses to anything they didn’t like with “fake news” or “says who?” They thought about compromise because they realized that eventually they would be in the minority and they wanted to be able to artfully and civilly conduct their business when that happened. They were not the arrogant, disrespectful ogres we see representing what they think is the Republican Party.

    Hey Matt, thought about running a story on how a baptist minister failed to notice his church treasurer was stealing $70,000 from the church and it took the members to notice it? Story I heard is the members ran him out because he failed to catch it and didn’t want to report it, it was god’s will. Ya, now he is running for county auditor and putting up yard signs and giving interviews in uniform while on duty. Real stand up guy right there…

          I don”t think any of them are school officials or administrator’s Kids
          This year anyway, 75% of the court is not as you described.

Meanwhile, our cheerleaders have their team photos taken over in Clear Lake outside at their Fire Department. Not sure what is wrong with our Fire Department headquarters – why is our school district ashamed of the town their (cash cow) kids go to school in? Talk about a slap in the face to our community.

    Do you think that you’d find one logical Democrat ? They’re all on the same train. They weren’t voting Kavanaugh from the start. Republicans are at least saying we’ll cast our vote after we hear the evidence. The Democrats speak of lifetime appointments. The longest serving SCOTUS was William O Douglas serving 36 years 7 months and 8 days. Democrats had 7 senators and congressmen serving 50 + years. Dingell 59 and Byrd 57. Only difference was they had to win their States vote. Their thinking was repetitive throughout the years. The reason Trump got elected. America is on its way back.

      Oh yes, we think about you every single day. We think you are criminals who back criminals at the expense of American Citizens. We think you can not now or ever be trusted. We think you lie about everything. We think you are the enemy of the United States and need to be stopped, soon.

    This isn’t fake news: the latest Kavanaugh accuser is so unstable, violent, and vindictive that a Judge slapped her with a restraining order after she threatened physical harm to an innocent young mom and her infant. The Dems have overplayed their hand; Judge Kavanaugh will soon be Mr. Justice Kavanaugh.

      It will backfire with you old, cranky, hateful men but not with the ladies of the USA. They are starting to see what the Trump agenda is.

      Never said President Trump was a choir boy. But he runs the country like a well-oiled machine. And since when do Democrats know anything about choir boys.

    Okay Congress now when you going to bring Bill Clinton forward and cross-examine him like you have her and Cavanaugh. She actually has evidence and people to back story. You didn’t do enough for investigation into Bill Clinton. So now the ladies can come forward and you can follow through on this Feinstein and the rest of your fools. I want to see him in front of the Congress and answering questions. Let’s see if he lies this time

      Clinton was already impeached for his lies….when is Trump going to be impeached for his thousands of lies and his pussy grabbing?
      Trump has told more lies than all of the previous Presidents combined.

          Writing love letters to yourself is one thing. Posting on social media is another, learn to spell. People already think your a dumbass, don’t prove it.

    That’s the democrat playbook; if someone disagrees with them, it’s labels, name calling and attempted intimidation; and if that fails it’s character assassination, real or fabricated. Notice all the one’s claiming sexual abuse and assaults are always liberals, and always against conservatives. A pattern of behavior that is so obvious. Wake up America, see them for what they are, and vote accordingly. I use the motto “Never vote for a democrat”.

      Ya right, here a just a very few of the fine Republicans that beleive in “family values” and “High Moral” conduct.
      Tha actual list is much longer.

      Ed Schrock, Representative (R-VA) – soliciting sex from a male prostitute.
      David Dreier, Representative (R-CA) – voted against a number of gay rights proposals,
      but was outed as gay
      Mark Foley, Representative (R-FL) – resigned his House seat when accused of sending sexually
      explicit e-mails to teenage male congressional pages.
      Scott DesJarlais, Representative (R-TN) – admitted under oath to at least six affairs, including two affairs with his patients and staffers
      while he was a physician at Grandview Medical Center in Jasper, TN.
      While running on a pro-life platform, DesJarlais made his ex-wife have two abortions,
      and tried to persuade a mistress who was his patient, into an abortion as well.
      Dennis Hastert, former Speaker of the United States House of Representatives (R-IL) -pled guilty to structuring bank withdrawals in order to conceal deliberately-unspecified misconduct by Hastert against an unnamed individual years earlier. Hastert admitted that he had sexually abused boys while he worked as a high school wrestling coach decades earlier.
