Re: “U.S. Rep. Grijalva Won't Be Attending the Trump Inauguration

And many more aren't. I don't suppose you'd consider going back there.

Re: “The Fake News Frenzy

Major media outlets are knowingly lying to the American people to advance a liberal agenda, example of it just today. Regardless of what agenda they are advancing, they should not be, the institution and industry is dishonest. They are in collusion with a political party.

"ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump's favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious "oversamples" we've seen. The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans..."

"journalists are the ones who maintain your Fourth Estate and are ultimately the glue that keep your democracy intact"

No they don't, not anymore. They are one and the same with the Democrat party, more specifically they are almost ALL liberals graduating from liberal indoctrination centers.

Re: “The Fake News Frenzy

I think the biggest problem is the crucial role of journalists no longer the primary concern of their employers. Larger media outlets are an ad-revenue driven business, and getting clicks is the primary goal, with accurate and important reporting somewhere lower on the priority list.
So when I hear people complain about 'the media' I agree on one level - what they chose to cover and how they cover it (he said-she said style personal beefs totally distracting from policy implications etc.) is not good journalism, but gets traffic. THAT to me is the problem more than any inherent bias one way or the other.
The term 'infotainment' pretty much covers it.

Re: “Not Going Anywhere

Cdub, they ignore laws they don't like. It will always be a bad ending, but they don't get it.

Re: “U.S. Rep. Grijalva Won't Be Attending the Trump Inauguration

I am very disappointed in Mr Grijalva's decision to avoid the presidential inauguration. It is not an endorsement of the person you are to work with, but rather a celebration of the peaceful transfer of power. His actions show a complete disdain for our form of government. Many try to confuse you with the talk of "democracy," but we are a Constitutional Republic. There is a difference. Please rethink your boycott Mr Grijalva.

Re: “Ducey 'Next Step' Watch: Day 235 — State of the State Edition. Great Ideas! Terrific Ideas! Wallet Still Safely Stowed in Back Pocket.

I get this feeling that our governor wants very little to do with educating other people's kids. I also feel that he's mostly looking forward to surviving his own future, with a tall stack of buttered bread and a big pot of beans. What's next, Doug?

Re: “U.S. Rep. Grijalva Won't Be Attending the Trump Inauguration

I just got back from Florida, where there is now an issue that has been reported in several places. Trump's behavior has opened the door for people to believe that it is ok to shout down people of color with insults and F-bombs. There is actually a lawsuit there that may set a precedent (or from the new speller-in-chief, a "president"). An American who's a dark fellow (from India) and also a successful medical doctor is suing a real estate company that sold him an expensive house and did not tell him that the neighbors were nasty, violent racists. They stood on his front lawn, tried to come into his house, shouted, swore, threatened, insulted and terrified his whole family. He may win in court.

Re: “Not Going Anywhere

That made sense.
So tell me please, what's wrong with obeying the law?
