Re: “Bohemian Rhapsody: Too Much BS

I thought it was a good movie to watch. It was great "seeing" him on the big screen since he was bigger than life (and a computer screen)

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Counting Isn't Cheating

voter suppression not illegal voting is the problem. rethugs spent millions to find illegals voting ;but couldn't find any. ( rethugs tried to pay an illegal alien to vote so they could arrest him but he didn't show up to vote) a.g. found one voting illegal a republican woman who vote for romney both in az and nevada! like ann coulter did ;but wasn't prosecuted

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Counting Isn't Cheating

Nelson in Florida is asking for the votes of non citizens to be counted. We can not trust people like that to govern fairly.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Counting Isn't Cheating

Counting every vote IS cheating if the vote(s) in question were submitted illegally....I.E. - by email (no state law allows for this to my knowledge) or by someone who is not entitled to vote. - just two examples

Re: “Making Sense of the Midterms: Post-Election Analysis on 'Arizona 360'

Donald Trump has declared himself to be a "Nationalist", i.e., a present day Neo-Nazi!!

Democracy can be Messy and Changes Slowly...but given Voter Participation, it does Change!!

Voters in these Midterm Elections, generally, have rejected Trump/his Supporters Bigoted/Neo-Nazi Agenda.

Donald Trump's "Nationalism " is nothing more than the repackaging of the Social Darwinism of the 19th century; used by Hitler to justify the Holocaust with the removal of those that the Nazis considered inferior. It also considers social welfare programs, such as Medicare and Medicaid as contrary to "social improvement" by perpetuating those with "inferior genetics".

Trump's Neo-Nazi Social Darwinism, a reflection of our mere Animal Nature, once again, demonstrates his complete lack in Understanding the very Nature of Human Society; our Inherent Relatedness, Commonality, and Mutual Dependence; Domestically and Internationally.

Only those who refuse or are incapable of a Critical Analysis of the Facts and the Actions of Donald Trump will deny that he poses a threat to our Constitutionally Protected Freedoms and National Security. He has Supported/Received the Support of White Supremacists /Neo-Nazis. His life is a paradigm for the Untrammeled Accumulation of Wealth; pursued in Contradiction to Community Interests and Achieved on the Miseries and Credulity of Others.

This is his proposed "Nationalism" .

Once again....Democracy can be Messy and Changes Slowly...but given Voter Participation, it does Change!! ....and....We can only hope that the on going investigations by Special Counsel Robert Mueller will uncover evidence that will necessitate the removal of Donald Trump from Office!

Re: “Sinema: "I’m Honored That Arizonans Chose Our Vision of a Better Arizona"

To be fair, most of the slimy ones on both sides were run by the party committees not the candidates but I'm sure the candidates could tell them to stop. Both were pretty good candidates - centrist and fairly independent. It must've been tough for McSally to have to buddy up to Trump to win her primary as she's been my rep for a few years and it was a total change of character. She gave a classy concession speech.
I think we have a terrific Senator in Sinema.

Re: “VoteVoteVoteVote! And Consider Education When You Do

It is so painfully obvious that it's just you and me here Stretch.

You give yourself away with your windy and senseless rants.

Try harder.

Re: “Sinema Now Up by 38K Votes; Hobbs Leading by 5600 Votes; Glassman Losing by Nearly 15K Votes

Glassman and Riggs would do anything to get an elected job, doesnt matter what job. Glassman is first class when it comes to glibness, but voters saw through it. It will be justice when these two are done for good. Hopefully the voters are waking up to the big utilities trying to buy their own regulators.

Re: “VoteVoteVoteVote! And Consider Education When You Do

There is not just one commenter. The comments disagree. Some think Dems are not socialist enough. Some think they are too socialist.

Systematic campaigns of misinformation won with 305, and selfishness on the part of the great defenders of public schools and their minions, who have never bothered to look at what goes on in public schools different from their own affluent white suburban mommy enclaves. They lock the poor into neglected, malfunctioning, shoddy institutions and pat themselves on the back for saving public schools. It is one of the ugliest, most ignorant spectacles visible in the land of education politics / policy, where plenty of ugliness and ignorance is always on view.

Look at the weakness of the so-called BLUE WAVE in the midterms. It is hilarious the way NYTimes et al. celebrate a few small gains in the House. After screaming non-stop for two solid years about how the world was coming to an end, thats all they could accomplish. Now they pretend it is a great victory, while the Senate is still locked down and it looks like we have another Supreme Court nomination coming down the pike sooner than those who have been relying on the immortality of an octogenarian might think.

This is what your ignorant, dishonest style of politics (and Davids) produces. It is on its way out, and if you dont like what replaces it, you have only yourselves and your corporate sell-outs, self-interested manipulation of ignorance, shoddy machine-backed candidates, and laughably weak labor policy to blame.

Re: “VoteVoteVoteVote! And Consider Education When You Do

Hey Stretch!

I've noticed that you've absolutely dominated this comment thread with your patented sock puppet trolling. I guess that when the common sense of two thirds of the voting populace defeats the BS which you actually believe to be true, that sends you into a ranting shitstorm.

Okay, sure. "It will be back." But...it will be watered down...hard.

When a really bad idea for a proposition gets hammered by two thirds of those voting, it will not be near obnoxious when it returns.

Much unlike yourself when your BS sense of reality is successfully challenged.

University Campuses are gun free zones. They know anyone leaving campus is a sitting duck.

They know you can't defend yourself.
