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.....

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."

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: “Guest Opinion

But isn't that a lot like saying Grijalva really doesn't need to advertise for his reelection. For unknown reasons people will get out and vote for him. Or at least they used to. Trumps win is causing voters to think twice about what they have been doing, what they have been expecting, and what they have never gotten.

Re: “High Hopes for High Times

In a perfect world, it would just be about the health and quality of life for the patient; Unfortunately, in the world we live in, unless there is money to be made -- and I mean lots and lots of money -- the health and quality of life for patients will not even move the needle on the average career politicians G.A.S. (give a sh@t) gauge.

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.

"Then they end up in handcuffs, in cages, in kangaroo courts, in prisonand then who knows?"

You mean that journalists are being treated as poorly as Christians are? How did that 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.

Re: “Guest Opinion

He has my vote. He questions whether expenses like the too wide expansion of the Broadway Corridor are relevant with today's traffic projections. He cares about neighborhoods and works hard to solve problems with matters affecting them. Even in matters where I might disagree, I feel he has thought through things and made choices, rather doing the politically expedient.

Re: “The Skinny

Don't worry about the Grand Canyon. I'm sure it and every other National Park are under consideration for new Trump hotels and resorts. The Twitterer-in-chief promised jobs and thanks to America's untapped natural resources and treasures just lying there for the taking, well let's just say you better see them sooner than later.
