“They were young, made a mistake and did their time. Most jobs and careers are off limits, landlords refuse to rent to them. They are charged thousands of dollars for jail time room and board, and if they don’t pay it’s a parole violation. Now you want their fishing license? Boy, once you are in the system, your life is over.”

“I read the editorial comments in the Democrat about the delay in the Michael Smith trial (Our View, Jan. 26-27), but I just don’t get it. Why attack the defense? She asked for a continuance, but the judge didn’t have to grant it. Blame the judge and prosecutor for granting it to her, not her for asking for it.”

“Did the Sedalia Parks Department think they could spirit the iron fence away on Third Street and no one would notice? Clean it, paint it and put it back where you found it.”

“Why do some washing machines say to put the detergent in first, and others say load the machine and then put the detergent in? I wonder if the Missouri Extension office knows ...”

“It’s 10 p.m. — do you know where your children are?”

“I’m so tired of being broke all the time.”

“Americans had better wake up. Government is not going to fix poverty, create jobs, finance small businesses.”

“I don’t have insurance and I wish I could take that Bothwell Regional Medical Center ‘kick the habit of smoking’ class, but $45 is pretty steep. Do they have scholarships for that? Do they have pardons? How about helping people?”

“The reporter who wrote ‘Hounds spoil courtwarming’ (Jan. 26) did an injustice to the Northwest High School and to the Sedalia Democrat newspaper. High schools all across Missouri have successful courtwarmings, but many don’t win their home basketball games.”

“We’ve been told drinking soda pop can lead to diabetes. Well now Pepsi, Gatorade and Mountain Dew are taking out an ingredient ... it’s called bromine. It’s a flame retardant and it’s been linked to early puberty. It’s in other pop, too. I think I’ll choose good old water.”

“Regarding (Gov. Jay) Nixon’s State of the State address, it’s just a given — Republicans are not for doing anything for the people, especially if its going to cost them a dime. They do not care about anyone but themselves.”

“Bye, Phil Mickelson. Bye, Texas, and anyone else who isn’t for paying their fair share in taxes. ... And Phil, I don’t believe for a minute your tax rate is ... 63 percent.”

“I’d like to be able to see ‘Green Acres’ and ‘Hee Haw’ again.”

“I just see so much trash sitting on the curb that can be recycled. I was wondering if anyone could please recycle, even if it’s just the newspaper that you’re holding?”

“I don’t know why some of our government officials and citizens say we should not have armed personnel in our schools to protect our children, but we have armed personnel in our Social Security offices.”

“Another one in Texas. When are those heathens in Washington going to be smart enough to know that when you take God out of the schools, this is what is going to happen. It’s not guns, it’s people.”

“Someone told me I should call 911, but you know what? I’m going to call upon the name of the Lord.”

“A big thank you to the two street sweepers Friday morning on West Fifth Street. I know you don’t like our brick streets, but we appreciate you very much.”

“I want to thank our good Pettis County Sheriff Kevin Bond for ... (his comments on) explaining our Second Amendment rights. Appreciate it very much, and I pray that Sheriff Bond will be safe in his duties.”

“I just wonder why they don’t put my stuff in the Sedline. Maybe because they don’t tell the truth.”

“After avocado seeds are dried, could they be used in a fire place without exploding or leaving an odor?”
