Re: “The Skinny

It is true. County Boards all over the State hold their meeting during the day, when only retirees can make it. They really dont want any public input anywhere. Schools and Cities generally do better with meetings in the evening. I know one school district that holds meetings on Friday at 7:00AM. All the better to hear from parents. Ugh!!!

They are organizing: Superbowl protests


The players mostly ducked and dodged the questions. The local protests, by contrast, are eager to tackle those issues head on and are expected to exhibit notable diversity.

Groups and community members involved thus far include members of the following groups: Black Lives Matter, socialists, abolitionists, communists, native Americans, Muslims, Jews, Hispanics, LGBT community members and the local Democratic party. Also planning to be on the scene: Opponents of circumcision. For real.

We are seeing the petty differences between our groups matter less than what we agree on, said Amy Zachmeyer, lead organizer for the Houston chapter of the Democratic Socialists of America.

They met Tuesday night and established a communication system to avoid ...I don't know, would you say arrest?

60,000 NFL fans spilling into the street and half of them will already be &*%%ed off? This is going to be interesting.

Everything is bigger in TX.

Re: “The Skinny

To quit paying ... alternative facts, ever wondered why Democrats/Liberals love Illegal Immigration?
As of 11/30/16 three anti-voter fraud organizations agreed with Trump about Illegals voting.

1) On November 11th Gregg Phillips of VoteStand and JumpVote reported that more than 3 million non-citizens had illegally voted in the election (and the vast majority of those would have voted for Hillary Clinton).
Completed analysis of database of 180 million voter registrations - Number of non-citizen votes exceeds 3 million. Consulting legal team Gregg Phillips (@JumpVote)
He reiterated the claim on the 13th. We have verified more than three million votes cast by non-citizens. We are joining .@TrueTheVote to initiate legal action. #unrigged Gregg Phillips (@JumpVote)

2) The folks at InfoWars added their analysis to Phillips numbers:
Virtually all of the votes cast by 3 million illegal immigrants are likely to have been for Hillary Clinton, meaning Trump might have won the popular vote when this number is taken into account.
Vote fraud using ballots cast in the name of dead people and illegal alien voters was a huge concern before the election. On the morning of the election there were 4 million dead people on U.S. voter rolls.

3) Now the group True the Vote is adding its voice to the chorus decrying the rampant voter fraud in American elections. True the Vote absolutely supports President-elect Trumps recent comment about the impact of illegal voting, as reflected in the national popular vote. We are still collecting data and will be for several months, but our intent is to publish a comprehensive study on the significant impact of illegal voting in all of its many forms and begin a national discussion on how voters, states, and the Trump Administration can best address this growing problem.
True the Vote (TTV) is an IRS-designated 501(C3) voters rights organization, founded to inspire and equip voters for involvement at every stage of our electoral process. TTV empowers organizations and individuals across the nation to actively protect the rights of legitimate voters, regardless of their political party affiliation.……

Re: “The Skinny

When asked what they wanted, 3 million more Americans voted for Hillary than for Trump

Trump won because of the electoral college's vision, not the 75% or so of America that didn't vote for the Orange Overlord.

I believe you're letting the alternative facts fool you.

Re: “The Skinny

Americans were asked if they wanted Clinton or trump based on their vision. The clear choice was Trump. Now let's support him.

Re: “The Skinny

This will curl your hair. Imagine - at five years of age - and we expect to assimilate these people!…

The society that allows/encourages this barbarism cannot exist in the United States. This was a huge problem in a London area called Rotherham (sp) and police were not allowed to investigate. This alone is good reason for a pause-to-think in Immigration policies.

"Trump takes his first stab at a Muslim ban."

And the author takes another cheap uneducated swipe at Trump.

Or is it by design? No...he forgot the gun reference. Knives don't cut it.

Re: “The Skinny

Here is the irony to think about. Neither side will let it die.The political pettiness and tit for tat mentality is exactly what started all the killing in the Middle East in OT times.

The Democrats are using the excuse that they are doing what their constituents want. They said they get 100s of phone calls telling them to boycott the inauguration, to be a no show at hearings and oppose the legally elected government at every opportunity.

Registered voters that voted in the last election? How many phone calls did they e verify? Or even log a name? Was it also a popular majority of all voters? We know they did nothing of the sort. Character assassination by accusation and insinuation.

Thus creating a new political term. Vote whore. These elected leaders are waiting to be told.... how to lead.

They never had a clue. Those were wasted votes. Now transfer that process to Hillary Clinton's campaign.

See WHY she lost? She is not a leader. Americans figured it out. CA and NY haven't and probably won't.

Re: “The Skinny

I'd also like to add that all but one of these countries completely bans (permanently, not temporarily) Israeli citizens from ever entering their country. Some of them even ban anyone who has an Israeli stamp or visa in their passport from entering their country.

Re: “The Skinny

As a member of the Law Enforcement community for fifty years, my reaction to the whining and sniveling about the "Muslim" ban (that never mentions Muslims) can only be disbelief. Do these critics have any idea what they are discussing? In the case of women, perhaps they do not.

Vetting a person means running his/her name and fingerprints through a system. Any damn fool can see it is completely impossible to vet someone with no history who's from a country with no records.
BTW (slightly off the subject, but instructive on Sharia Law) how many whiners are aware that Female Genital Mutilation and Honor killings, en famille, are rules, not exceptions in Sudan and Somalia?

Look up the stats... oh wait, nobody in charge bothers to keep records of those cuttings and killings, but go ahead and google a few interviews with young women from those countries.

This obvious reason President Obama's Administration listed each country President Trump used to temporarily halt immigration (from those countries only) is their chaos and instability. Obama's State Department was fully aware of the impossibility of carefully vetting many travelers from Mogadishu or Omdurman so they listed them.

Now recall the San Bernardino terror attack by husband and wife Farook and Malik who killed 14 and wounded 22 of their fellow workers at a holiday office party in December of 2015. The couple left 3 pipe bomb booby traps at the scene for first responders and there were other explosive devices in construction and thousands of rounds of ammunition in plain view at their home where other members of the extended family frequented. One named Marquez, who married into the family, bought rifles and ammunition for the newly wed terrorists after he converted to Islam. The Farook family, father and mother, said they were aware of terrorists, bombs and various plans of mass killing as was Marquez and even neighbors and associates revealed by Marquez in extensive questioning.
Law enforcement - Federal and local - had few records on these people until after the mass murders.

Donald Trump's common sense comments after the 2015 mass murder are instructive:
"The Muslim community is not reporting whats going on. They should be reporting that their next-door neighbor is making pipe bombs and theyve got them all over the place. The mothers in the apartment, other people, his friend was buying him rifles. Nobody was reporting that. The Muslim community has to help us, because without the Muslim community, we would have to get very tough and much tougher."

If this fact picture were context to drug smuggling, sex-crimes, burglary rings, bank robberies or other crimes, who in his right mind would allow this endemic and intrinsic ignorance to continue? In fact, such deliberate ignorance would be considered criminal negligence in a court of law.

Re: “The Skinny

According to Leroy Festus Fuddpucker, a long-time resident of Lizard Bump, Ariz., the "guvment" is going 'bout this all wrong. "What they need is a big trench 'sted of a wall," Fuddpucker said. "That way you get the tunnels too!"

Sorry but the militants, the terrorists, the drug runners and the coyotes are not looking to apply for a job. It works at the White House. It can work at the border.

Seems funny you don't complain that Pima County holds Supervisor meetings during weekday work hours that working citizens can't attend.

Attack Ducey because Trump is kicking tail? Nice touch.

Re: “The Skinny

"Even before President-Elect Donald Trump disgracefully laid into civil-rights hero and Congressman John Lewis after Lewis said Trump was not a legitimate president"

Think through those actions from start to finish. Are you really that blindly partisan and hateful?

You forgot that the civil rights hero also lied. He has a history of doing this. He would not attend Bush 2000 Inauguration. So now he has done it again. Then he tells us that he believes in forgiveness. But fails to forgive.

Major Owens is a supporter.

What won't this man to say?

I just left another thread where we were lectured that Trump changed his views and that made him illegitimate. Which is it?
