Sedline for Nov. 24-25

November 24, 2012

“The population of Sedalia has been around 20,000 people for as long as I can remember. We have no new two-story buildings or bigger so I don’t know why we need to have a new, bigger fire truck and a new, bigger fire station to put it in.”

“Think of your neighbor when you are burning. You could ruin several hours of the day for them. Be courteous.”

“They say there is a city ordinance against blowing leaves and grass and so forth into the streets — that must be a joke, because people do it all the time and nobody does anything about it.”

“Well, it’s amazing to me. When I grew up here as a kid, I thought you could only shoot off fireworks within a few days of the Fourth of July. Apparently you can shoot them off 365 days a year, according to the Pettis County Sheriff’s Department.”

“It was great seeing the volunteers in the Democrat preparing the Thanksgiving dinner at St. Patrick’s Church. Wish we had a few young folks taking on the responsibility, too.”

“The price of peanut butter has skyrocketed — does anyone know why? Is peanut oil used in cars?”

“I would like to thank all parties who started the recycling bins at Thompson Hills Shopping Center. I’ve lived here in Sedalia for 15 years, and this is a true first effort that is really working.”

“Way to go, Sonic employees in Windsor. You showed those lazy, low-life punks not to bring their dirty laundry to Windsor. Thanks, good job.”

“You have plenty, but you take and take from people who have nothing but the sweat of their brow and the work of their hands.”

“Welcome to Obamacare. I was just told by my chiropractor of many years that he quit taking Medicare patients the day after the election. Also, if you are on Medicare, you can’t just pay for it out of your own pocket. Those of you over 60 who voted for Obama thinking he would take care of you are in for a very rude awakening.”

“The Republican Party should not be shocked because they lost. All they have to do is think of Mourdock, Akin and the comment Romney made about the 47 percent.”

“Sometimes God gives us exactly what we deserve. If you want to know why the presidential election turned out the way it did, pull out your Bible and turn to Galatians 6:7.”

“All right, c’mon people, wake up. You’re talking about Obama giving people free stuff. What do you think these corporate executives have been getting all these years? All these perks they’ve been getting. ... What about 9, 10 percent taxes that rich folks get to pay?”

“The school district of Sedalia must have more money than they know what to do with. Here it is raining outside and the sprinkler system at the soccer field at Skyline Elementary School is just spitting out water all over the place. Just seems like a waste of money to me.”

“There are veterinarians in Sedalia who do not know that when a cat suddenly starts scratching excessively, that means the cat is stressed. They need to go back to school.”

“To the people went out shopping (on Thanksgiving), shame on you for supporting that.”

“There’s a metal sign on the courthouse lawn that talks about surveillance camera on s-i-g-h-t when it should be on s-i-t-e.”
