Re: “About That Charter School Trump Visited In Ohio

Debra Holt,

You are the one that posted the politico link. That is specifically kicking someone while they are down.
She's got pneumonia - shocking thats she's actually human and gets sick, ISNT IT!? But to make political points from it lacks character. Hell, even Trump hasn't make mention of it!

And you still are trying to make this about HRC. READ MY FIRST POST!: "I'm not saying vote for HRC."

Trump make a big gaffe going to a painfully underachieving school to trumpet how its a shining example of charter schools are a better way to education our kids. This is a perfect example of the many many many gaffes he's made in his campaign.

Debra Holt,

FYI: Im not trying to convince you to change your mind. You have obviously already drunk the Trump Koolaide and have no objectively in the discussion. I May certainly fall on the other side of the spectrum relative to HRC.

But facts are facts.

It now comes down to service to our country and character. Trump has shown neither in his life.

FYI: Kicking someone who's down with Pneumonia shows your character.

Re: “About That Charter School Trump Visited In Ohio

Debra Holt,

"Trump was never in a position (elected or appointed) where the security of the nation and lives were at risk. " Isn't that the whole point?

He is now in a position to be elected, and given his judgement and track record he is most definitely a risk to our nation and the lives of those that defend it if he gets elected.

Don't take my word for it:
Take the word of his many fellow conservatives who will NOT be voting for him.
Take the word of the people who will be taking his orders in the military who fear his leadership.
Take the word of those who understand the pressure of having the finger on nuclear weapons.
Take the word of the countless people who have dealt with his questionable business practices.

Re: “About That Charter School Trump Visited In Ohio

Debra Holt,

First: "I'm not saying vote for HRC."

Second: Trump has shown bad judgement on a number of key issues. 3 marriages: Hello. No sharing his tax returns: Hello. Non-profit charity: Hello. Making a generalization that all Generals have been "reduced to rubble": Hello. The list is long.

Defend Trump's bad judgement(s). You don't do that by point out HRCs bad judgements.

Re: “About That Charter School Trump Visited In Ohio

Blue State Fail,

Its not any one issue, any one position, or any one proposal that concerns me about Trump. If you look at him holistically, he consistently shows bad judgement, lack of being educated, and lacking in character and empathy. I'm not saying vote for HRC. I'm saying simply look at the candidate holistically. Will they have the temperament and skills to be President?

In this specific instant he chose to trumpet the benefits of charters schools, but the school he chose was a poor example. This shows his lack of proper preparation. If he screws up the little stuff, what would he do with the big stuff? (and as President, its all big stuff)

Re: “Is Tucson Getting Better or Worse?

Downtown is better now that it has ever been.

-- Safer
-- Cleaner
-- More and better food choices
-- Hotel Congress is air conditioned
-- Better transportation options
-- yoga studios
-- Art
-- Second Saturday Downtown
-- Fox Theatre is back to its former glory
-- Better parking
-- (I'm sure I've missed more to add, but you get the point)

Has it changed it character? Absolutely. that's a good thing!

5 years ago I never even considered venturing downtown. Recently I've considered moving closer to downtown. I think that says it all.

Keep Tucson Changing!

Peter
