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.

"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.

Re: “Guest Opinion

Nice announcement but SteveK has violated Arizona's resign to run law since this announcement came prior to his being in his last year of his term which falls on the first Monday in December, the 6th. Other politicians such as Roy Laos and Conrad Joyner fought the law in court and lost and had to resign their seats, just like SteveK will have to.

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: “Guest Opinion

So the national democrat standing is really in shambles....They lost the Whitehouse, the Senate, the US House of Representatives, a number of governorships, many state Houses, and State Senate's....how do you Democrat/Progressives think that you can recover those losses? With boobs like Special K?.....even on a low level elected idiot like SK....you cannot change the attitude of the country that you folks have driven into the dirt... Less government regulations, less government in general....let the free market reign...Progressives?not so much really.....more like digressives.....
