Re: “Quick Bites: Help Keep Monsanto Out of Pima County

Oh yes. Let's stop any chance of someone getting a new job. This is Pima County, we just increase property taxes, we don't try to encourage business. I thought we just voted FOR the job expansion. Where is it a given that a GREENHOUSE will lead to Monsanto buying up small farms in our area? Get back to your Neil Young records and leave us alone.

Re: “We Stand Together Network

Try joining it instead of blaming it for all your woes.

Obama spent most of his adult life as a community organizer in Chicago. What did he organize them to do? Collect government services and vote democratic.

How has that worked? Three thousand people have been shot this year and 700 have died.

People have figured out that the Democratic plan of pretending to be Robin Hood is actually a deadly plan.

I am angry that our current President never tried to keep a company in our country. he actually took measures to convince them to leave.

You are either an American or a globalist but you can't be both.

Re: “T.H.R.E.A.T. Watch: Journalist Christiane Amanpour Is Worried

You are loved C dub. Why else would they keep talking at you? The jobs saved is not the only issue here. We have a President that said "those OLD jobs are gone forever." Do you know why? Because his party and he exported our jobs through NAFTA and TPP and massive regulation and taxation.

While deporting our jobs they they imported illegal workers. That robbed Americans of income, businesses of revenue, and taxes from federal, state, social security and medicare.

No honest person can defend those actions. They have punished Americans. And the voters figured it out.

The first clue? Solyndra.

Re: “We Stand Together Network

Terrific article and quite right. I'll sign up. Is fear and hatred happening? If you've got a question, just reread the vitriol in some of the comments. We often don't have much patience for sore losers; and here's some sore winners! Unleashed from civility, they can call others names. We need to do whatever we can as a community.

Re: “We Stand Together Network

"Pity Party!!!!! Yeeehawwww!"

All the exclamation points, All the repeated letters. Always paying attention to a news site he obviously dislikes, yet returning again and again and again...just to hate on all that he reads. There's gotta be a teabagger site that caters to such an @$$hOle personality, yet, this troll feels the need to leave his stains all over this site. What a sad, angry and...more likely than not...depressed individual.

Wrong, Again would make a great case study for a prominent psychiatrist.

I know I'm not loved around here but you have to give me credit, when I'm wrong I admit it and I was just that. Trump did not save 1,000 American jobs. The actual number was 1,100 !!

Re: “Guest Opinion

Wrong, Again:

Relax snowflake.

Just change your Pampers and everything will be fine.

When you start typing things that are condescending, inconsiderate and just plain nasty...your nonsense posts may actually be removed. If you could learn (*trying real hard to keep from laughing*) to be nice (*chuckle*) all your posts would probably stay intact. People with a sliver of common sense might actually pay attention to your solid information (*HA HA HA HA HA! Oops, so sorry.*) if you just, you know, toned your misplaced anger down a bit.

Good luck with that. You're gonna need it.

Re: “We Stand Together Network

Kris,

A good post indeed, one I understand. I suspect I am a good bit older than you, as I remember the two parties working together under Truman and Eisenhower. To be sure there were many, many differences, but we rebuilt Europe and Japan, kept American labor unions from dominating the economy. JFK got off to a good start, but his successor LBJ sowed the seeds of the discontent we see today.

Against the counsel of America's greatest General, MacArthur, he got us deep into the Vietnam conflict, which divided America. Further, the implemented "The Great Society" which deepened racism and destroyed the American Black family. This further divided America.

Asians and Latinos survived this by assuming individual responsibility and not allowing government to dictate.

Perhaps a third party is the way to go. Teddy Roosevelt attempted it in 1916, but lost and gave the White House to Woodrow Wilson, a Democrat who did little to help America, except set the stage for the Great Depression.

Re: “We Stand Together Network

The only "fresh" post I've found on this thread was written by "Self-pity doesn't add points." The rest of the posts are the same old redundant, boring gibberish. Heard it all before and sick of hearing about it. Whatever.

If these people want to form a group, they have a right to do so. Complaining about it won't stop them from doing so. In fact, it will probably motivate them further and they'll form more groups and movements.

No, Trump won't bring 70% of the country together. It's a sweet dream, but it is only that - a dream. Every time we have a new President, the winning side believes that their President will bring the country together, but the losing side always fights back. And the cycle continues.

I can't remember the last time this country was united under a President. In my lifetime, the country has never been united under a President because the other side always complains. Why anyone would post naive comments asking for unification is beyond me.

When Clinton was President, Republicans complained. When W. Bush was President, Democrats complained. When Obama was President, Republicans complained. Now that Trump is President, Dems will complain. The cycle never ends.

Joining a third party is the best option, then you can complain about both Republicans and Dems.

Re: “The Skinny

The Twitterer-in-chief only saved 1,100 out of approximately 2,000 jobs on the line with a special incentive paid to Carrier of $700,000 a year for the next 10 years, which will come out of Indianas state budget, to keep the factory open. No wonder his casinos went bankrupt.

Re: “T.H.R.E.A.T. Watch: Journalist Christiane Amanpour Is Worried

So, 90% of the mainstream media did editorials supporting Hillary, and they are surprised that her opponent, the victor , thinks they are against him ? It would seem that the well-credentialed elite doesn't like any Republican president, and they are ginning up reasons to not like Trump . If you want to keep trashing him, that's your prerogative . But don't pretend that it has anything to do with objectivitity or "reporting".

Re: “Guest Opinion

Steve K what we just witnessed was Hillary wasting two billion dollars because her ideas were the same as Obamas and we struggled the last eight years with his miserable decisions. If you have not violated the law as stated above, you are going to need a strong vision for the future.

Make Tucson great again wont work, because it still hasnt been.

Re: “We Stand Together Network

We may be witnessing the collapse of the democratic party. Add Keith Ellison and his anti semetic comments. He may be put in charge of the last of the democrats. He wants to give blacks 5 or 6 southern states.

Trump just may bring 70% of the country together. Lets rebuild our country with optimism.
