Why punish our most productive people? Should people who make a lot of money because they work extra hard and take the risk of owning their own small business pay more for movie tickets and groceries? If you say yes you might be a liberal and should seek help right away. FJB $3M from China.

Iowa has a very progressive state tax phase out to flat tax, elimination of any state tax on retirement income, and reduction of property tax up to 100% for veterans. Of course the state doesn't have to support St. Louis and Kansas City.

All taxes are racist.

Don't forget: sexist, homophobic, xenophobic, gender biased and antisemitic. Did I forget anything?

People deserve to keep their earnings. Other states have successfully done without income tax.

We already have some of the poorest state services in the nation. Why would we try to strangle the main source of state revenue. It seems like Republicans can't think of any policies to help the people of Missouri other than cutting taxes again and again..

WHAT?!?!?! Did you just type that statement with any serious contemplation? I'll answer you plainly. IF YOU DO NOT PAY TAXES, YOU WILL NOT BE POOR. Get it? If you keep all of your money, you have more money!

Do you think the shooting of a dog by a Sturgeon police officer was justified?

Watched video. Little dog was no threat to anyone. After being outsmarted by deaf and blind in one eye dog the cop should have called for help instead of shooting it. This mistake makes the whole police department look bad in eyes of public. PD should buy a new dog for owner. Mayor apologize. FJB

This dog is not big enough to pose a serious threat.

The dog didn't show any signs of being aggressive or sick. The cop was obviously trigger happy.

This Cop should be fired. The poor animal wasn't a danger at all. I know a lot of cops that would agree with me.

Nope , I think the police department and mayor should be under investigations. How would he feel if his family dog was shot a stupid reason ? Oh I didn't know he was blind ? Really ok well what about a dog that's def gonna shoot it to cause it's acting weird? You need to be smarter then what you are

This officer, along with the Mayor, should be terminated. This poor dog was murdered. If he thought the dog was sick, he could have taken him for help. There was absolutely no excuse for shooting this tiny dog. The cop admits he wasn't afraid of being harmed. He got tired of chasing the poor thing,

I believe the video from the policeman's body camera is enough for a conviction.

Yeah, that's a bad shoot. No way it's okay. Fire him. Remember, the police only exist to serve and protect the law, not individual citizens. The supreme Court ruled police have no duty to protect non government officials.
