Re: “Gabby Giffords: "We Must Draw a Bright Red Line Between Political Speech and Suggestions of Violence"

The civility train left the station just about the time the crazy train arrived in the 2016 presidential race. Besides, the media continues to ignore the rule established by Ronald Reagan that there is no bad press as long as you keep receiving free coverage. Donald Trump will keep saying and doing what has taken him this far and the media and Clinton camp will continue to be aghast at his behavior all the way to the November election. After that, it’s anyone’s guess as to which liar will be elected – the bad comb-over or the pantsuit – two sides of the same wooden nickel.

It looks like you have all forgotten when Hillary called for assassination of Obama in 2008. I had to use Democratic reasoning to apply the logic.

Had anybody told her that BLM called for the killing of cops, and blacks have killed cops?

So you believe "Have you no sense of decency?" fits Trump?

Whenever I read one of your columns, I can only think of the phrase "You can't fix stupid."

All of these top people are not the ones that the current Trump supporters are going to listen to. Needs to be a regular citizen who listens to the news, is high school educated and whatever the other demographics are. I think they missed the boat by skipping the convention and now are trying something else outside of the standard.

I think right now Wall Street and the banks are just heavily invested in Clinton with an option to buy if she wins the presidency.

Re: “Gabby Giffords: "We Must Draw a Bright Red Line Between Political Speech and Suggestions of Violence"

Gabby, search your memory for our Presidents remarks June 14 of 2008. He said, "if they bring a knife to a fight, we bring a gun. "

Why didn't you say something then? Why didn't the gun hating media say something? It's because of the phony double standard that you live by.

If you can't be honest and fair, be quiet.

Re: “BASIS Schools: On Beyond Charters

Mike,

The sad truth is that David is not better than this. He has demonstrated his repeated inability to conduct even basic statistical analysis and investigative reporting from day one. He has an agenda and his only goal is to 'prove' it, no matter what lines he crosses in the process.

On the bright side, at least he is not in the classroom teaching anymore because he does not appear to be competent enough and I would hate for his students to think that his methodology is in any way an appropriate or objective way of arriving at any kind of conclusion.

David puts the cart before the horse, and that why the cart ain't moving.

Re: “BASIS Schools: On Beyond Charters

David, I'm genuinely saddened and disappointed by your 8/10/16 "news story" -- and in fact, am actually embarrassed for you.

In the past, I may not have agreed with your POV or your continual whipping of all things BASIS, but at least the data on which you constructed your arguments was in most instances reasonably (or at least directionally) accurate.

Again, I've never subscribed to your conclusions, but have always welcomed your calls for transparency on how BASIS (and all state supported charter schools) spend tax dollars, impact educational access and how they serve (and/or don't serve) all students. I genuinely valued your voice as part of an important, open and honest discussion around a very real and important issue.

Today's column though, is intellectually weak, dishonest and ultimately, makes very clear your agenda.

Simply disclaiming multiple times that you "are out of your depth" doesn't then give you permission to cast aspersion (Panama Papers -- really?) sans any facts.

David, you are better than this - and you know it.

That's laughable after what the Dems, DWS and HRC cooked up for BS! Just laughable.

Re: “BASIS Schools: On Beyond Charters

No it isn't significant. Only if you are trying to denigrate them because they out compete public schools like the biggest one in Tucson. BASIS does a great job.

its also well worth adding that jeb bush had the most money thrown behind him by far of any republican candidate and it didnt give him a snowball's chance in hell. there's a reason republicans want to reform the primaries, it isn't fixed enough for them yet.

Re: “Gabby Giffords: "We Must Draw a Bright Red Line Between Political Speech and Suggestions of Violence"

Gabby is right. You always need to draw that bright red line in the sand. Just like Obama did when he called ISIS the JV team and that he had them on the run. That was before he sent Iran $400M and funded their expansion into 24 countries.

ISIS has crossed that red line many times and he hasn't answered the call to duty. 33,000 have been killed. But he did get Osama.

Hillary is not running against Obama. She is running against the Russians. And the US taxpayers. If something happened to the Prez, Vice Prez Biten would step in.

Are you talking about Hillary and her remaining in the race against Obama because he may be "assassinated" so she could step in?

Re: “Gabby Giffords: "We Must Draw a Bright Red Line Between Political Speech and Suggestions of Violence"

If Trump withdraws the right wing will jail Hillary for her email lies and the Clinton Foundation donations. Whether it was right or wrong. Then the winner will be Johnson, unless Sanders can get back in the race. I wish we could change to Sanders now, before it happens. Bernie backers don't like Kaine.

Re: “Gabby Giffords: "We Must Draw a Bright Red Line Between Political Speech and Suggestions of Violence"

The only question left re: Trump is will he withdraw or be removed from the candidacy for POTUS. I can think of some miserable candidates since first voting in '68, but really. The man is insane. (Oh, and by "removed" I am not suggesting anything other than the RNC dragging him off the stage like a bad vaudeville comedian).

The luckiest candidate in US history? Hillary Clinton. The second worst candidate in many years looks like Abraham Lincoln compared with the orange headed baboon.
