To Deafened: The bikes are loud so four-wheelers don't hit us. - Story City 50248 Building wind tower farms to harness the power for electricity sounds like a great idea for saving us heating and cooling costs here in central Iowa since many of the farms are nearby.

Now I have heard everything. Republicans complaining that Obama and famly did not vacation in the south. Give me a break. They are going on the theory that if you throw nothing but negative against someone, all will believe. It is so plain what they are doing. Nothing good for the country, after all, why should they care about this? If they are wanting some people to vacation down south let all of the republicans in congress go south. It would be better for everyone to see all of congress and their families down there versus just 4 people. Repuklicans have soured me on their tactics, I will never vote for this party ever again. What hipocrits.

If you're wondering why my store no longer has veteran associates who know how to give great customer service, here's why: although most customers are great, a good number of them are overly demanding, demeaning, say insulting things to you, and flip out on you about products that you didn't make. I can only do my best. I don't personally make the products you buy. When you expect me to skip my lunch to attend to YOUR needs, at least act like you care. I fantasize about the day when I'm no longer there, so I can run into you. At this point, I can only imagine telling you these things:
a)you have horrible breath
b)when you complain to management every month, they no longer care as they know you are just a miserable person.
c)when you complain you can't get good service, it's true. we all hide when we see you coming.
d)we also know you switch tags, and eventually you'll get caught and arrested.
I live for that day!

Krueger's BP 1272 8th st West Des Moines, IA ... These people totally screwed up my car when their MECHANIC forgot to tighten down lug nuts. This was so bad that the so called mechanic walked around the car saying that the wheel bearings were bad. He shook the tires on the passaer side and drivers side and told us the bears were bad but the car would be fine for the ride home ( even with a minor shake) He told us he couldn't do the wheel alignment on our car because of the wheel bearings and tyrods. We thought it was weird because we told him we just put new bearings in but ...he's the MECHANIC!!. He show'd us the minor shake on both sides ( even though he said he never touched the one side, lol) never the less, he even took it for a ride around the area to check it out and came back telling us we were set. Took our $599.49 and sent us on our SAFE way!! What a safe trip it was too...shaking minor slowly turned into minor grinding but only minor. This was suppose to be normal I am told..NOT! MY WHEEL BOLTS ALL BROKE OFF. I lost my wheel with two children in the car! The rim was shot because the wiggling of the tire wore out the holes in the aluminum rims. The bolts snapped and that was the end of the SAFE trip home!! We called screaming, crying and scared to death. They didn't ask how we were at all...they asked which side! LOL. they checked both sides out and told us it was wheel bearings and that they would be fine for the ride home but didn't give a darn if a child was dead or alive, in the hospital, safe, anything. They asked " what side"!!! The garage that fixed my car told me my wheel bears were fine and that it was lose lug nuts!!! This garage is a give me money garage only and could care less about your safty! When I faxed over damage t my car from the accident, the owner went on vacation!!!!! That would be Jeff Richman I am told by the mechanic manager.

My comments deal with Farm Subsidy payments.
Quote: Washington paid out a quarter of a trillion dollars in federal farm subsidies between 1995 and 2009, but to characterize the programs as either a "big government" bailout or another form of welfare would be manifestly unfair to bailouts and welfare.

After all, with bailouts taxpayers usually get their money back (often with interest), while welfare recipients are subjected to harsh means-testing, time-limited benefits, and a work requirement, all in order to receive modest-to-pitiful government benefits that are more or less uniform for every applicant.

None of those characteristics apply to America's farm subsidy system.(End Quote)

Feel free to look up that rich neighbor of yours that farms. See how much of your taxes have been given to him.

Very Interesting!

To Real Des Moines Man; I remember Reagan still blaming Carter for stuff as late as 1986, six years into his presidency; and Geoge W. Bush was still excusing himself five years into his administration by blaming Clinton. President Obama inherited one of the biggest messes in modern history, and has, if anything, shone incredible restraint.

And let's face it...the Republican's have fought to block practically every single thing Obama has tried to do..there is no question about it. I'm not saying Obama is the greatest by any means but the haters in the Republican party sure seem to mess with him every single chance they get. Let's not forget the baggage Obama walked into. I'm sure Boehmer will be crying if he would happen to see this.

So what you are saying is that your ok with Obama putting illegal aliens before Americans. He gave them 22 million job work orders and then another 800,000 more while 25 million Americans are unemployed. A job work order means employers can hire illegal aliens before an American. That makes you a traitor. And you are all for that. What a coward, putting illegal criminal aliens before the love of your own country. So your going with the same machine that wont pay off. Change puppets.

So what you are saying is that your ok with putting illegal aliens before the love of your country and your ok with Obama giving illegal aliens 800,000 job work orders after already giving them 22 million job work orders, while 25 million Americans are out of work still. You are a traitor to the United States of America. You suport a fraudulent president that puts illegal aliens before Americans just for a vote. You have a choice, you can vote for more illegal aliens and NO jobs for Americans or you can vote for the other puppet.

What is with the Des Moines Police Department,
in the last two months they have wounded one dog & killed two. The last one they killed cost the taxpayer hundreds if not thousands of dollars.
I'll bet anyone nothing is done to that cop, another perfect example of the double standard laws we have

The police officer that left his police dog in the car on a very hot day (the dog died) should get a hefty fine and have to pay back the money it cost to get the dog. He does not deserve another one.
Another double standard

People who support Planned Parenthood should be the ones who provide the financial support not the government using tax payer dollars, especially the dollars of those who oppose this organization.
