Time to Vote!

Hello friends! It’s a great day to be alive because it’s Election Day! If you live in Missouri, Missouri’s Voter Outreach Center gives you information about the ballot in your area.

If you happen to live in Oakville, one of our neighbors has been kind enough to fill their yard full of signs for the candidates to NOT vote for. I like to refer to this place as Hate Bend. It’s on Telegraph Road, and you can’t miss it. This family has sacrificed their otherwise beautiful yard to keep us all informed, and we thank them for their service to the greater good.

Where the Minority Rules

Let’s face it. Americans don’t vote.

Why don’t they vote? I really have no idea. It defies logic. Why in the world would you put yourself in a position to let someone else speak for you in deciding our common journey?

I sit here in Missouri where we are on the verge of having two arguably psychotic US senators, and I cannot figure out why. Why would we let this happen? The St. Louis, Kansas City, and Columbia metro areas easily outnumber the rest of the state. There really is no excuse. We have the power to prevent this.

All registered voters must use any means necessary to get out to vote. Take advantage of your employer’s policies to take time off to vote, vote by mail, vote early on a non-working day, call a family member or friend for a ride – just make your voice heard.

It’s important.

It Matters

Hi everybody! It’s your old pal, Tim, here. So, I was thinking about the 2000 and 2004 elections and how it felt to lose those elections to such a beatable candidate. In hindsight, it turns out that very beatable candidate made some really poor decisions in the eight years we elected him to be President. With that in mind, I just wanted to send out this reminder to vote on Tuesday if you haven’t already (I have!). Let’s not repeat our past mistakes of not voting at all or not voting for President because your primary candidate did not make the general election or whatever reason you may be feel like you want to use. History tells us that voting matters. It matters a lot.

After six years of declining real-estate assessments, property values appear to be up this year in the Mehlville School District, but that will make little

Why in the world would the police be pointing their weapons at protestors as if they were suspects of an active violent crime? What happens when an officer accidentally discharges his weapon? Absolute chaos. Then what?

I really don’t understand why there needed to be separate rallies in Ferguson today. Peace and justice do not pick sides, and justice must be served to have peace.

Mehlville School Board Elections Today!!!

After attending the candidate forum last month, I feel Venki Palamand, Samantha Stormer, and Jean Pretto will best serve our children, teachers, and community. They will be the first three candidates you see on the ballot.

Please get out and vote!

Grover and the Republicans

After taking some time to think about what those Republicans that signed the Norquist tax pledge had actually done, it is clear to me that each one of those representatives violated their oath to serve their constituents and their country. The pledging of allegiance to Norquist was a direct conflict of interest, and here we sit still hearing about this small-minded, short-sighted idea.

In my world of the way things should be, there should have been outrage from every constituent in every district represented by the signers of the pledge. How dare they make such a pledge to anyone besides the represented and the country.

This should have been a bigger deal than it was and still is. None of these guys should have been re-elected, and each one of them should denounce their allegiance and refocus on serving those that elected them. The oath of office is a sacred thing, and anything that conflicts with that should be questioned and avoided.
