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.....

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

The Weakly won't allow comments that exhibit how liberal policies encouraging illegals, like sanctuary, have made Tucson the 6th poorest in the country and indeed there is a strong element that would prefer to have us as Mexico. Once again, the comment is deleted.

Viva la comuna de Tucson de Meheeeco!

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.

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.
