Re: “Editor's Note

That's right What Again, nobody is talking about repealing the 2nd Amendment. You can relax.

Maybe try relaxing while you read this article about the efforts to repeal the 2nd Amendment.

Re: “Editor's Note

"The rescinding of the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America, that document that liberals, aka, 'progressives', in reality communists, have so much revulsion for."

Nobody is trying to rescind the Second Amendment cupcake snowflake. The commie progressive liberals will not knock on your mama's basement door, come downstairs and take your precious guns.

You can change your underwear now. Believe me, this threat (and all of the others) you've dreamed up isn't (aren't) real.

Re: “Editor's Note

William Heuisler would do well to read about Margaret Sanger from the words of Black women who are aware of her ties to eugenics AND who can tell the history of the Black community who worked closely with Sanger to advocate for birth control.

Lumping Gosnell in with PP is unbelievably dumb.

I understand that some folks just have a difficult time with history. Facts are hard.

Re: “Editor's Note

"It takes more than a national memorial. Much more."

The rescinding of the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America, that document that liberals, aka, 'progressives', in reality communists, have so much revulsion for.

There's a process for that. Go ahead - give it your best shot! Especially now that the liberal agenda has been totally repudiated and you have no federal or state political power whatsoever.

Re: “Editor's Note

Ms. Herreras, instead of remembering innocent and heroic victims killed and wounded during Gabby's horrible shooting you decided to defend Planned Parenthood (PP). You obviously are unaware of the irony - and of PP's history and its long record, particularly against US Blacks. Research everything below.
Here is a brief synopsis:
The NAACP was founded by 21 white, socialist, atheist, Marxist Democrats and was the antithesis of Rev. Martin Luther King Sr.s community at that time, which was capitalist, Christian, very pro-life, and pro-America. So, these 21 white people began to put a message through to the black community that Democrats were good, liberalism was good, and they subscribed to the same philosophy Margaret Sanger believed of blacks at that time.

Margaret Sanger, The Function of Sterilization, The Birth Control Review, October 1926, 299. Sanger delivered the address before the Institute of Euthenics at Vassar College on August 5, 1926. Sangers address sounds eerily familiar to the 1999 controversial Children Requiring a Caring Kommunity (CRACK) program. The program offered to pay drug-addicted women $200 cash if they underwent sterilization or had long-term chemical birth control (which may actually cause abortion in the very early stages of pregnancy) inserted into their bodies. The billboard ads were placed in inner cities.
BTW: Government "Aid to Dependent Children" (by Lyndon Johnson in 1965) has destroyed the American Black Family. Most comparisons of white and black families ignore the devastation when 70% of black babies are born out of wedlock. Read Moynihan for a complete examination of ADC, and see: http://www.census.gov/populati...

Planned Parenthood has been busily abetting ADC by aborting 40% of black babies in our inner cities for almost a century.
Baltimore Ravens player Ben Watson commented on Margaret Sangers Planned Parenthood's apparent Plan. "I do know that blacks kind of represent a large portion of the abortions and I do know that honestly the whole idea with Planned Parenthood and [founder Margaret] Sanger in the past was to exterminate blacks, and its kind of ironic that its working.
NFL Super Bowl champion Burgess Owens said, "Sanger looked at blacks as weeds.
If you wonder why urban, young, black women are allowing themselves to be victimized by Planned Parenthood, look at BET [Black Entertainment Television], which is owned by very wealthy white Democrats", Owens urged. Look at the 15 years of messaging that has been gotten through to our urban black communities: anti-white, anti-police, anti-family, and pro-abortion.
"Forty percent of black babies have been given to the altar of abortion", he observed. "In any other society, that would be considered genocide. Today, we put a nice name to it and, at the same time, have convinced our own mothers that their babies are no more than an inconvenience or a profit".

Eugenics was designed a century ago to rid society of the "unfit" to preserve the so-called Gene Pool. Planned Parenthood has emerged as Grand Patron of Eugenics in all its horror. Kermit Gosnell publicly and openly killed many thousands of black babies (born and unborn) over his thirty years in a North Philadelphia ghetto clinic that publicly catered to Black women, with very little Government oversight and no Medical inspection of the supposedly sanitary facility. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-23…
Ms. Herreras, refute the above if you can, but please consider the real history of Planned Parenthood before you praise such a horror in the future and somehow connect it to a madman shooting innocent people.

Re: “Editor's Note

True journalism is dead. The death was caused because of lack of accountability. That and partisan politics that we witnessed during the election. The media directed CNN and NBC in questions/answers and info in an attempt to elect Hillary Clinton. Americans saw through it.

The latest revelation today, has John McCain admitting that he leaked misleading stories regarding Trump campaign and Russia. CNN and Buzzfeed ran with it.

So, in a roundabout way, journalism is committing suicide. Can they be stopped?

Re: “Editor's Note

"somehow, they still feel this work has something to offer."

I guess the "somehow" got me. True journalism is perhaps at its highest level of importance in a generation under the current situation, and also potentially at its highest level of being threatened by subversiveness and press access restrictions.

Re: “Editor's Note

I just feel that America is great already, no one needs to tell us. We need to just be better, stop being prejudice, be more equal and respectful toward each other.

The Best Is Yet To Come! No President or President Elect should tell us we will become great again.We are Great!
Impeachment isnt too far away.

Put youre money in your words Mr. Trump!
My America is great! Just needs a reminder that WE the People together can do more than one elected official. God Bless America always!!!

Re: “Editor's Note

I just hope for the best, but I doubt anything chages.
It doesnt matter, we will prevail either way.
Impeachment is a thought when warranted.
America is great already, we dont need anyone elect or not..to remind us!
It remines to be seen how much greater it can become, less prejudicism, I hope ,but asking the sun for water, unfortunately...but like say, The Best Is Yet To Come!

Re: “Editor's Note

In just over 3 weeks you can say it loud and say it proud, Donald J. Trump, president of the U.S.A. I suggest for the sake of your own sanity that you build a bridge and get over it.

Re: “Editor's Note

We must have 8 year term limits for any elected office or any person taking more than $100,000 yearly including any type of "benefit" from tax payers. After 8 years in private sector they may return to public service for 8 years & cycle begins again.

Ray Parrish For Congress you are kidding yourself. Progressives and Greens can not balance their actions with being pro business. The two are diametrically opposed.

We can't all sell windmills. They are killing bald eagles.

Farley could not win a state wide election. He has a base here in crazy town and that's all it will be. If AZ is going to move into the 21st century economically, we will need to expand employment opportunities.

Gender neutral bathrooms, dope for the dopers and $15 an hour to flip hamburgers will turn us into San Francisco without a bay. But what a great artist community.

It's time for Democrats to grow up and act like adults.
