Speak Out

Big praise for tiny home

No one has written in to say the tiny house on Pine Tree Ct. seems to be fitting in just fine with all of the houses there since the owners added a porch, a garage and a nice white fence. The owners and the neighbors should be proud of it. It looks just as good as a few of the homes built on that street.

Bonuses for all

 Your article on the last Kincaid board meeting 11/13/17 left out the part where they voted on giving Christmas bonuses of $300 to all including the Mayor and board ? Is that even legal ? Mayor said in regards to the bonuses this year there was a twist that it was going to include the board and himself! One member abstained 4 voted yes and one NO !

EDITOR”S NOTE: Village president Bill Jarrett confirmed that the board did approve more than $4,000 total in Christmas bonuses for all elected officials and village employees.  Jarrett voted with the majority of the board to approve the bonuses. Trustee George Carter abstained, and Trustee J.R. Griffin voted no.

Disgusted

How can this be legal?  How can a mayor and board backed by their attorney vote to give themselves a $300 Christmas bonus? You would expect something like this from Washington DC and the state-level politicians. Can't afford a part time officer but can line their pockets. Total BS. Disgusted.

The sharpest tool

I don’t see how some folks go to church on Sunday as a “good Christian” and then the rest of the week these so called “good Christians” criticize other religions, or make crude remarks about overweight people, and also gossip. The tongue is sharper than the sword. It’s written in the Bible. Read it yourself. It’s in there.

All monsters

Democrats and Republicans who are assaulting women should resign. When a man uses his position and power toward young girls, he is pretty much a monster. If you have to engage in that sort of behavior, you should not be in a position of trust such as representative, teacher, preacher, or even president of the United States. We are coming for you.

Victim shaming

 Trump won't speak out for women, and none of us should be surprised about that. He can't because 16 women came out against him, and he said they all lied. No. Women seldom lie about creepy stuff like this. They are silent because men (and other women sometimes) blame the victim. Dem and GOP should be worried because this is just the beginning.

Regardless of politics

Al Franken could be expelled from Congress too, along with Roy Moore. It is what it is regardless of your political views. And if you think Franken's behavior, if he's guilty, is better because the female wasn't 14, yes, because that is child abuse, but both are female abuse and unacceptable.

Hypocrisy

Good thing God is so forgiving, so he/she can forgive all those Christian Conservatives standing by Roy Moore who assaulted a child. That's called forgiving hypocrisy.

Tails and trophies

Trump is allowing African lion and elephant trophies (heads and the tusks of elephants) to be brought into the US again. Even though they are listed as endangered here in America under the Endangered Species Act,Trump will allow hunters to kill them and bring the heads back to be mounted. Elephants numbers have dwindled down to just a few hundred thousand now from 10 million years ago. Trump Jr was photographed recently with the tail of an African elephant that he had cut off with his knife.

Corrupt to the core

 Let’s take a look at the last 48 years. In the last 28 years under Republican presidents, there have been 90 convictions of executive branch members.  In the last 20 years under Democrat presidents, there has been one conviction. Want to know what party proves to be the most corrupt?  90:1 Republicans most corrupts presidency in the last half century, with more convictions almost certain under Trump with three indictments already in less than one year.  Republican, conservative (you can’t spell conservative without con), whatever you may call them, history proves they are corrupt to the core.  I rest my case.
