Re: “Tucson Salvage

Good one.
Our culture often prides itself on personal, creative, individuality and identity...until the person next to us is different. Margie Bakker walks the walk of independent thinking, individuality, creative resourcefulness, intelligence and most importantly, universal love for all. Is she interested in running for president?

Re: “Danehy

Hillary and Obama don't have the "qualities" that the orange doofus has TonyZ. Get your head out of whatever you have it snuggly buried in, take a deep breath of fresh air, cancel your subscription to Info Wars, Breitbart "News", etc...and make a valiant effort to embrace the facts when they are presented to you. It's time for all you tRump cultists to break the chains that bind you.

Re: “Danehy

As an 82 year old New Yorker and U.S. Navy veteran, I was there in 1973 when dirt bag and his beloved father were hauled into Federal Court in Brooklyn, with that stain on the legal profession, Roy Cohn, representing them. Their crime was instructing their rental agents not to show their Trump properties to black people. Hmmm This is our non racist president. Let's look at the 2016 vote in N.Y Bronx 88% against Trump, Manhattan 86% against, Brooklyn 79% against, Queens 75% against, Staten Island, where the cops and firemen hide, 57% loved Trump enough to vote for him.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Soc It To Him

Everyone who voted for tRump must be banned from ever voting again. Voting for the orange turd constitutes civic malfeasance and reveals an inability to reason, to understand the difference between night and day and to be able to find your own ass with both hands.

Re: “Danehy

You're too kind. Trump is the biggest a--hole this country has ever seen and patriotic Americans should collectively knock the snot out of him. Well, that might be too kind too.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Soc It To Him

Only in a capitalist S#!%hole country is money spent on the health of human beings counted as "lost".

Capitalism is a form of mass hysteria in which people abandon reason, compassion, humanity, etc. in favor of selfishness and cold hard greed.

Socialism is the quaint notion that humans can execute on a grand scale something that most of them learned in kindergarten: sharing peacefully.

Alas, the mass marketing of consumerism and cutthroat capitalism ruthlessly beats that simple, pure concept out of most people's psyches by the time they reach adulthood, turning them into obedient automatons that whistle past the graveyards created by our profoundly dysfunctional government and its barbaric policies.

And when a handful of children escape the hell that we've created in their countries and straggle up to our southern border seeking protection, we cage them in concentration camps and blame them for their own troubles.

History will not be kind to our nation and its violent, morally bankrupt senescence.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Operation Desert Stormy

CW13, anyone who still supports tRump, after having voting for the orange turd, like you, has their head so far up their ass that you should never be allowed to vote again. tRump is a traitor, a thief, a racist sonofabitch, imposed on the United States and the World by fools like you. Chickenshit? That's you. Otherwise you would use your real name and not "CW13".

Re: “Danehy

Hey Henry J! Your commentary kicks ass!

Here's one for the tRump cultists:

Their Orange Overlord is the nastiest orange log of shit and they embrace that. Ewww!

Back in 1996, tRump did this! I forgot all about it until recently. All I gotta say is that anyone who reads this and still has respect for the orange PO(TU)S is Really revealing their true colours. Peace!

Re: “Danehy

Sorry bud, I presented facts, not opinions.

FACTS: Things that are known and proved to be true. Example: The misguided actions that tRump and/or his administration have engaged in are praised by his cultists, yet if Obama and or the Clintons engaged in any of this activity, these hypocritical cultists would be asking for their heads. These are facts.
OPINIONS: Views or judgments formed about something, not necessarily based on fact or knowledge. Examples: Green is the prettiest colour. Jimi Hendrix is the greatest guitarist of modern, if not all, times. Okay, that one may border on fact! ;)

But seriously, your tRump love is chock full of misinformation. Misinformation is/are not facts. I truly believe you are smarter than that.

It's a Fact, not an opinion, that tRump has next to nothing to do with how the economy is doing at this point in time. It's a Fact, not an opinion, that tRump is a serial liar and a misogynist. It's a Fact, not an opinion, that tRump has more respect and devotion for brutal foreign dictators such as Puppet Master Putin and Lil' Kim Un than he does for the United States' own allies. Not only is that shit unpatriotic, that shit is sickening and disgusting.

I'm not in the mood for starting a war over these FACTS myself, but I can't help but notice you spend so much time posting this drivel when you could be spending that time learning what's really happening around you and to the country you profess to love. Take some time to learn something besides toeing the tRump cultist line and you'll be a bigger and better man because of it.

Sincerely, DC

Re: “Danehy

What an infestation of tRump cultists we have here.

We have cultists who believe that when people point out the bullshit currently going on in the USA, they hate the economy (?!) Yeah, that makes loads of sense. They probably also believe that tRump snapped his chubby orange fingers and he magically improved the economy! Yeah, that happened. FACT: The economy is doing well at the moment due to procedures put in place during...wait for it...the Obama administration. Sorry to blow away your fantasy boys.

We have cultists who are accusing others of having a memory lapse when presented with very easily confirmed facts. FACT: tRump and his daddy were hauled into court for instructing their rental agents not to show their properties to black people. The accusers should check the information provided before making the childlike trollish move of accusing others of having a memory lapse.

We have cultists that keep dredging up an indiscretion that happened many moons ago and are treating it as if it is SO much worse than anything your current "saviour" has ever done. FACT: Your "saviour" has cheated on all three of his wives, he busted into a teenage girls locker room unannounced and is proud of that, he was involved in the payment of hush money to a porn star that he raw dogged while his current wife was pregnant (what a stellar guy!) and he has been accused by several women...and at least one of them was a minor...of rape! The Ol' Slick Willie and Monica event has nothin' on that; unless, of course, you're a tRump cultist.

Nice try guys, but reality will "tRump" your blind and delusional irrationality Every Single Time!

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Operation Desert Stormy

How silly to think Trump cared about 150 lives.
After he called off the strike he threatened Iran with obliteration like youve never seen before

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Operation Desert Stormy

He lied about the why and when he decided to not bomb Iran and the reasoning behind those decisions. BTW, for a situation he himself created. That kind of "whimsy" is dangerous. He could easily blunder and stumble us into WW3 by shouting out frivolous demands at any given moment. This one most likely being to distract from his being accused of rape ....again. But then, this time it's at least an adult accusing him.

Re: “Why the Common Wisdom About TUSD's Declining Enrollment Is Wrong

Not sure how the above angry and anonymous commentator can deny your hard numbers, but alas, those who wish to negatively spin will.
That anonymous writer might find my story to be contrary evidence to their claims but here it goes...
I hate to admit that few years ago I too believed that negative spin about TUSD and sent my son to a private school for his first few months in kinder. Thankfully, I can also say that I quickly saw the light and the truth, that TUSD is a good district! I came to this truth as an education professional, observing my sons private school class (not great) and comparing it to my observations at 3 different TUSD kinder classrooms. The TUSD classrooms were head and shoulders above the private and charter classes I had observed.
The TUSD teachers were true professionals, engaging their students in meaningful and deep learning, with masterful classroom management skills and educational artistry! The principals were the kind of warm & welcoming community builders that every parent dreams of.
As I said on the John C. Scott Show and will continue to say to anyone else who cares to listen, TUSD is a good district! We do have some challenges (as all districts, schools and educational institutions do) but it is fine and appropriate to be proud of our TUSD!

Re: “Danehy

Hi CW13 There is nothing wrong with my memory. Go on line and type in United States vs. Fred C. Trump, Donald Trump and the Trump Management , Co. and charged them with systemic violation of the 1968 Fair Housing Act in their many complexes. The suit was brought in federal court in Brooklyn N.Y. on October 15, 1973. Maybe you didn't read the newspapers, Hmm?

Re: “Danehy

It is not only the racial and religious minorities that Trump hates. On page 52 of the June 2019 Atlantic Magazine, in an article entitled Trumps Bigotry, the construction manager of Trumps headquarters which opened in February 1983 in Trump Tower, Barbara Res, the construction manager, tells the heartwarming story of Trumps love of blind people. Inspecting the cab interiors of the elevators. Trump asked what the dots, were. It's braille. An upset Trump said get rid of it. I'm sorry; it's the law, N.Y. City's law, the architect replied. Trumps exact words were "No Blind people are going to live in this building". What a guy!! I guess his famous disability, those pesky heel spurs that kept him out of the service don't count for exclusion.

Re: “Why the Common Wisdom About TUSD's Declining Enrollment Is Wrong

Nope, I pulled my kid from a well-regarded and highly-rated private school (will not say names) and put him in a D-rated elementary school, with a new principal and new dual-language program. I could tell from my professional experience in rating educational quality, it was an excellent school, regardless of their state letter grade.
But real educators dont need to rely on superficial measurements to know a good school when they see one. So yes, it was a D school I put my son into (they are now a B) and I did so happily!
P.S. McCorkle, Warren and many other TUSD schools are also doing good things. Id suggest walking away from the keyboard and doing something helpful IN THE SCHOOLS to broaden your perspective.

Leila:

Just ignore Stretch. She's got this disorder that a lot of other internet trolls have.

It's called douchebaggery. She has the form of it that makes her ramble on and on and on...without really saying much of anything. Let alone anything that actually makes sense.

Pray for her. Someone needs to.

Re: “Anti-Social Media

Dehumanizing and desensitizing speech has been used throughout human history to justify one cause or another, but the common thread is that people die as a result and those who use these tactics are left morally and ethically bankrupt and must begin to build their cultures all over again.

I thought we were "Making America Great Again", not making the same old mistakes AGAIN.
