A store clerk asked me last week if I qualified for the “senior” discount. I shot back a quick “no” and silently questioned the young lady’s need for an eye exam. Sad that young people are not getting the medical care they need.
As I was leaving, it dawned on me that I might start taking the discount, even if I obviously don’t qualify. Do they check you on that, or just trust old people? I’ve never been old before and just now learning the ropes. Thanks in advance for your help.
When I was 17-years-old, I had a poorly-done fake ID that indicated I was 22 that I utilized to buy beer at the Ectonville convenience store on Hwy. 92. Do I need to get a fake that says I’m 65? Anyone know a guy?
Do people have “a guy” anymore, or do you just get on the internet for illegal stuff now? I’m going to have to sharpen my game to fully max out on this senior discount thing.
As I understand the process, a commission of lawyers and select citizens will conduct interviews on Aug. 21-23 at the Supreme Court Building in Jefferson City where it will select its three nominees for the governor to consider in appointing a new Missouri Supreme Court Justice. Judge Megan Benton and Team Tony Luetkemeyer are the locals that will be competing among the 23 people being interviewed.
A “commission of lawyers” sounds especially painful, but I guess no pain, no gain if you want to sit on the Supreme Court of Missouri. Lot of abortion laws to weed through every session and such, so you gotta be in judicial shape on day one.
I’m mostly worried about Truman Luetkemeyer, the senator’s dog that is a steady presence in his Senate office. Can Truman hang out at the Supreme Court building? Is it legal for him to sit in on briefs and consults with staff writing opinion? Can canines be a threat to democracy, or no? These are the things that worry me at night.
The interviews are open to the public if you enjoy listening to lawyers interview lawyers. I’d take some icepicks for your ears if you plan to attend.
I think Parkville running the use tax right back at their citizenry is a bad look. Spending the taxpayer’s money to have them keep telling the city officials no is not a good look. I’ve sat in on more than my share of city council meetings over the years, and it is always the same. They just can’t believe the tax didn’t pass and “maybe they didn’t understand it” and then they run it back up the same pole and get just a few more supporters to the polls. I have no dog in the fight, but I always smile a little when taxpayers keep kicking these things right back at the officials that “can’t believe” it didn’t pass. It is sad that those same taxpayers are paying the bill to tell them the same thing they told them last April.
Don’t email me the merits of the tax. I have previously written that the use tax made more sense than the sales tax that did pass in April. I’m not against the merits of the tax, I’m just a proponent of actually listening to the voters.
