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: “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: “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.

Re: “We Stand Together Network

As a Sanders Supporter who voted for Jill Stein in the Presidential election, I am truly baffled by much that people seem to be feeling in the wake of this Presidential election. At first I was incensed by the self-pity and victim posturing of people who supported Clinton's "independents-can't-vote-in-many-primaries," super-delegate-padded, Wall-Street-funded, DNC-facilitated and NYTimes-manipulated campaign.

They expect Sanders supporters to join them now in being outraged by Trump's victory in the electoral college? What do we call superdelegates? Grass roots democracy in action?

With this piece of Safier's, I feel more pity than outrage. When I look at the public institutions governed in Southern Arizona by Pima County Democrats, I see plenty of real social justice problems that need our attention and on-the-ground advocacy and effort. As far as I know from following Safier's commentary for more than three years now, he and his buddies don't care about minority incarceration rates in Pima County; they don't care about the high rates of prosecutions for non-violent victimless crimes; they don't care about whether the desegregation order is being implemented in TUSD; but they're going to hold each others' hands and attend vigils and self-pity sessions over Trump's election and enter into a self-righteous fantasy that we've now entered an entirely NEW and UNPRECEDENTED phase of this nation's history in which we're only one step away from the gulag because -- surprise, surprise -- people rejected their particular "rainbow" flavor of neoliberalism and we've got yet another wealthy white businessman in the White House.

Do they now the tactics Woodrow Wilson used against Alice Paul during the years preceding the passage of the suffrage amendment? This is not the first self-deluded, dangerous narcissist we've had in the White House. The examples could be multiplied, but I don't have all night to sit here and pull the copious skeletons out of the yes-this-is-AMERICAN-history closet.

Re: “We Stand Together Network

David,

Unlike you, I have found these last weeks filled with light and hope. Above all, as a Latino of American birth, I see no reason for anyone to fear the new US we will find under Donnie.

Indeed, many changes he will bring are essential. Just look at the issues illegal immigration have wrought on our Tucson. I doubt that you are integrated into the Latino community, as I am through church and extended family, so you will neither see nor understand the depth of the underlying problems vested on us by the hoards, yes hoards, of illegals.

Have faith in America; it got me through 8 years of Obama and it will get you through 8 (I pray) of Trump.

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

That's right CW13 this is what they stand for and who they back:

June, President Obama participated in a PBS townhall and was asked about Trump's promise to keep Carrier's Indiana plant in the U.S. The townhall participant -- Eric Cottonham, a member of the Steelworkers Union employed by Carrier -- asked Obama if anything could be done to stem the tide of jobs flowing out of the country, as Trump had recently promised to do.
"I see here youre doing a lot of things, but in Indianapolis, theres nothing there for us," he asked. "I mean, whats next? I mean, what can we look forward to in the future as far as jobs, employment, whatever? Because all of our jobs has left or in the process of leaving, sir.
"Those jobs of the past are just not going to come back," Obama told Cottonham.
Instead, Obama advised workers losing their jobs to learn how to adapt their skills to "some of these new technologies," in particular, the "clean energy sector."

Yes why not spend your final days promoting global warming? Get a heavy coat on and get out there. Time is a wastin'.

Re: “We Stand Together Network

Can you fear mongers give the HATRED mantra a rest? Just because somebody has a different opinion or does not agree with your lifestyle it does not make them a hater. Using that analogy anything you don't do makes you a hater of that activity. That is stupid and all your are doing is further dividing our citizens.

Why don't we start by coming back together as a nation and supporting enforcement of existing laws? One of the political persuasions has started picking and choosing which laws they will support and enforce. This includes our Mayor and our Chief of Police.

Also, when an officer is shot in the line of duty it would help if you would denounce this murderous activity, rather than coddling a group that wants special rights for what appear to be justifiable shootings. Just take a look at the conviction records so far. The jury is not out on this. They have sided with the defendants.

And while we send trillions to the federal government for law enforcement and homeland security, this is our Chief of Police?

And Magnus said he "holds fast to the view, when it comes to immigration enforcement, we refuse to become an arm of the federal government."

But you sure will belly up to the trough when federal grants are passed out. Sanctuary cities will no longer receive them. That is my hope. Work together or work alone.

But drop the hatred. It's not becoming.

Re: “Betsy DeVos, Privatization and . . . Fallujah?

If David had substituted the word "Benghazi" in just a few places, we would all know the story, but the outcome is a bit different in that the families had no place to go. That is until Donnie come on to the scene.

In any even, Donnie has chose wisely for Education and for me, at least, the word "PROFIT" is beautiful - it makes things happen.

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

Here is another Christiane lie exposed. Remember how she lamented for the youthful illegals that Obama was helping?

Recent government data shows that more than two-thirds of the aliens the Obama administration has brought to the United States under the president's Central American Minors program werent actually minors at all.

To quote Reagan, "there you go again" Danehick. Christiane wasn't lecturing America and she wasn't talking about Trump. She WAS talking to other journalists about their need to step up and report the facts and question our leaders. in order to ensure the survival of our democracy.

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

We have just witnessed eight years of a supposed free media manipulate the country to the point that their own polls proved that the public is fed up with them and their partisan lies. I blame them for getting Trump elected. That and the fact that Obama has not helped our country. Instead he has buried us in debt and problems, all the while promising hope and change.

Pelosi is proof. Democrats have failed us and the media helped.
