"Be sure to honk your horn at the selfish bike riders on Route K. Apparently, we've wasted our tax dollars resurfacing and fixing Route K and adding bike lanes because they've chosen not use them. Way to go, Columbia. Another classic example: Wasting money on a group of selfish individuals who don't care about the greater needs."
"I think that the Rock Bridge-Hickman basketball game was a great recruiting tool for the new Catholic high school in town."
"I just thought I'd get in on the Niedermeyer controversy. Why don't they take the oldest part of the Niedermeyer building, dismantle it or move it to that park that's got the shotgun house and some other structure out there It makes for a nice collection out at that park, and then that'll free up the ground for the construction. Put a plaque there saying, Hey, this is where the Niedermeyer House was and where they can go see it now."
"Sen. Lamping's new tax proposal shows a stunning lack of knowledge of economic principles. First, giving $19,000 to one person generates much less consumer demand than giving $1 to 19,000 people. Taxing the poor on their consumption is certainly not going to increase demand in a consumer-driven economic country. Ask any retailer if they would rather have one person coming into the store with $19,000 or 19,000 people coming into their store with $1."
"I watched Secretary of State Clinton testify at the congressional committees about the Benghazi tragedy. I was very impressed with her sincere efforts to take responsibility and to set the record straight. She presented the facts forcefully and honestly in the face of Republican efforts to politically exploit this tragedy. Some of the Republicans ended up looking like the small- minded malcontents that they are."
"Studies show a fertile woman who is not using contraception has about a 4 percent chance of getting pregnant with any particular episode of sexual intercourse. This is true if the intercourse involves rape. I guess you could consider 4 percent rare. But it's no rarer with rape than with any other episode of intercourse."
"I read in the Tribune the workers' comp Second Injury Fund is out of money and will need to find another source of revenue or charge businesses more for the revenue necessary to cover the funds. But I have another alternative: transfer the liability of that to Missouri Employers' Mutual, which was a quasi-government setup workmans' comp company to provide low-cost workmans' comp for businesses. Since MEM has enough money to buy political ads, buy politicians and parties with big-time and huge salaries, they should have sufficient enough money to cover the Second Injury funds."
"The concrete thing they have in the middle of the road right in front of Clover's on East Broadway really needs to have some yellow markings. It's almost impossible to see at night. One of them does, and one of them doesn't. I almost ran into one of them one night. If you're going to put these great big concrete things in the middle, you had better start having the city start putting some coloring around them so there's some reflection on them."
"I can't blame anybody that's making that kind of money to move out of California to save millions of dollars. Wouldn't you rather give those millions of dollars away yourself to some charity you might want to believe in instead of just to the other 47 percent who are doing nothing I don't blame them. Missouri ought to start running ads in California: 'Welcome to Missouri, which is a low-tax state.' Why would you want to give your money to the government "
"In regard to the recent car chase on Garth Avenue and the resulting damage to other vehicles and perhaps life-threatening events, I think we should outlaw all white Cadillacs."
"Hank, your president's inauguration had the lowest TV audience since the 1969 inauguration. Your president has really been divisive. I hope his policies don't bankrupt the United States."
"I hope the athletic directors of the nation investigate the NCAA on this deal that they're conducting. Now they're saying their own internal investigation has done malfeasance. I think it's time the NCAA does a big investigation and see what is really going on in there."
"I think people are not really evaluating the children when they're playing guns-and-robbers at school. Back in the old days, we saw Matt Dillon, and we saw the cowboys and Indians, and of course we played like we were shooting with our fingers at cowboys and Indians at recess. Last night, I watched television, and there were at least six detective and police and gun shows. So if we don't want the children mocking these things, maybe we should take them off the TV."
"Before we go off half-cocked on passing laws to control guns, perhaps we should consider how well a 100 percent ban on hookers has served this polite and law-abiding society. Hookers are registered and regulated, at least after the first arrest. They thrive in our subculture, and we all know the huge success that the war on drugs has been. Drugs are off the street, unless you know where to look."
