Grocery store files plans to demolish building, start anew along south Iowa Street

Oh and let me add this. Aldi is a privately held, international company whose HQ is located in Germany. Based on their business model and prices they are attracting and taking in billions in Social Security dollars and shipping that money out of the country. I'm not angry at them for this. They deserve to get that money. What I find incredibly sad is that there isn't an American company with the guts and grit to do the same. (And no, Walmart doesn't count.)

Given that a great deal of Aldi's business comes from retirees and others on fixed incomes, this would be a plus. I made the mistake, once, of going to an Aldi's on "Social Security payday", i.e. the fourth Wednesday of the month. It was a jammed pack circus.

Opinion: Will CNN’s new ad be effective?

"The truth is the greatest enemy of the State."<br>
"If you repeat a lie often enough, people will believe it, and you will even come to believe it yourself."<br>
"A lie told once remains a lie but a lie told a thousand times becomes the truth"<br>
All of these are quotes from Joseph Goebbels.

I love Aldi, and not just because shopping there can cut as much as a third from my grocery budget. They also bring in imported items from Europe that you can't find anywhere else (well unless you go to Au Marche). And they also stock seasonal items that aren't just groceries. I LOVE Aldi at Christmas.

BuzzFeed sues Kris Kobach over denial of records requests

Kobach really is the master of the "mushroom treatment"; fill them full of s^&t and keep them in the dark.
If Kobach was TRULY interested in election fraud, he would hold up a mirror to himself.

Letter to the editor: Christian values

A conservative says, "I don't care.This has never happened to me and doesn't affect me." <br>
A liberal says, "I care because this should never happen to anybody."<br>
It's the difference between having empathy and being devoid of it.

Change doesn't come until you start talking about it.

One thing about Kaepernick; it's engendered more conversation about racism and white privilege than I've seen in a long time. This is a good thing.

And? Close to 90% of white murder is white on white crime. Big deal.

You're sorta, kinda half right, Bob. Nate Boyer was the one who influenced Kaepernick to go from sitting during the anthem to kneeling. This is a direct quote from Boyer about it. <br>
"We sorta came to a middle ground where he would take a knee alongside his teammates," Boyer says. "Soldiers take a knee in front of a fallen brother's grave, you know, to show respect. When we're on a patrol, you know, and we go into a security halt, we take a knee, and we pull security."<br>
This is not "submission", it's respect for fallen brothers. But go ahead, keep pounding "liberals" over it. Your cluelessness and inability to accept anything else is all on you.
