Some Winners From TheDebt Ceiling Fiscal Cliff

I have long been in favor of a line-item veto because of things like this. What I would REALLY like to see is a prohibition of adding anything to a bill that isn't relevant to the topic of the bill. Let an item stand or fall on its own merits. Politicians would never let that happen, though. They're uncontrollable it seems.  (Jan 4, 2013 | post #3)

Informer Page 8 November 27, 2012 NOTICE Ordinance 2012-9...

It sounds like Hizzonner the Mayor is trying another attempt to milk the cash cow. My take on it is that folks who make use of the local motel get to pay yet another tax on their overnight stay.  (Nov 28, 2012 | post #3)

Yes or No - West Union Wal-Mart Liquor License

Hey doeppelganger, you're gonna love this. I just got to repair a headlight bezel that got damaged at -where else- Walmart. That's five times now. At least I won't be sharing the parking lot with drunks. The sober folks do enough damage.  (Nov 12, 2012 | post #70)

wallmart beer sales

Incorrect, mooseface. Peebles didn't try to put beer sales in Walmart so I have no issues. By the way, your spelling sucks. Even when I'm drinking I don't spell as bad as you do. You've got school today. Try to learn something.  (Nov 12, 2012 | post #15)

Hmm, guess I must be your hero since you have spent so much time trying to impersonate me. Glad you look up to me the way you do, but you really should get a life.  (Nov 6, 2012 | post #67)

Yes or No - West Union Wal-Mart Liquor License

Yes, I agree that any business can petition. In this situation the voters have a say. Not everyone is sold on Walmart's good graces or the 'benefits' of Walmart controlling too much of the market or of Walmart having such control of the local jobs market. I have stated a number of reasons why I'll be voting no. I haven't seen an arguement here to change that. Regarding Walmart's effect on the local markets, that was a point broached by others and I don't agree that the potential loss of Walmart is such a bad thing. And you do have to admit there have been some pretty ridiculous remarks made here that REALLY don't persuade me to vote otherwise.  (Nov 4, 2012 | post #54)

Why Walmart, though? Seriously. Why Walmart? There are better locations for the purpose. I will say that the comments about Walmart leaving town don't sway me. I look at all the vacant retail locations in West Union and I think having a Walmart here may not have been the brightest move. Profits don't stay in this town like they used to. The concept of Walmart leaving - can't say that would be such a bad thing. So, that arguement doesn't impress me.  (Nov 4, 2012 | post #52)

7000+ in ADAMS County on FOOD Stamps

Don't know who you were pointing that at. Do hope it wasn't me since I haven't taken advantage of any assistance. When there is an economy worth talking about I have no problem with cracking down on chronic welfare abuse. There are plenty that won't get off their asses. We have a different situation right now. It seems we can't employ all those who do want to work. Hollering "Get of your lazy asses" doesn't create those jobs needed, either. I'm far more concerned about having jobs out there, jobs that you can actually support a family on, than I am about the chronic crowd. If we can't put the willing to work, how do we expect to require the useless to work? Just where do we put them? Mitch isn't the only one who has paid a large tax bill and, frankly, it doesn't matter what he pays. Most of us pay also. Over the years my tax bill would have knocked your socks off, too. Big deal. Like Mitch I made a lot and I paid taxes. That's they way it is. Until such time as things change I have absolutely no problem with assistance to those that want to work and can't. Those folks are part of an infrastructure that's not being used and that isn't their fault. They are willing. I'd like to think that they'll have use again. So, as I asked in a response to another post, how many are you ready to hire?  (Nov 4, 2012 | post #56)

Spent the bulk of my worklife in business. In fact, the hat I wore at one point was Vice President in Charge of Market Developement. Positions such as that do require that you have an idea of what you're doing in order to get that sort of job. There is room for investment and developement here but Walmart not having beer isn't what is holding things back.  (Nov 1, 2012 | post #40)

So, you figure your lifestyle will be utterly crushed if Walmart doesn't sell beer and wine? Makes me wonder what you call living it up. Sounds like you may have a pretty limited view of what that is.  (Nov 1, 2012 | post #37)
