Re: “T.H.R.E.A T. Watch: Immigration, Libel, Treason

The Tangerine Tyrant. That says it all. For what ever reason your hatred for Trump knows no bounds. That's fine with me. I've come to realize that no matter what Trump does, you will never give him an ounce of credit. If he screws up you will be all over him. If he does good you will pooh-pooh it or give credit to Obama for it. I realize that I'll never change your mind, so I quit. This is the last post that I'll ever even mention him. You have your opinion, I have mine.
So AZ/DC, lets just leave it at this.
1) The funniest human being to ever walk the face of this Earth was George Carlin.
2) If God ever decided to take up the guitar, he'd go to Jimi for lessons.
On those two things we can agree.

Re: “The New Teacher Certification Rules: Is Everyone Else Wrong, or Am I?

I'm a school counselor with three graduate degrees and I support the law because it allows me to be more flexible within my school and provide more support to my students and the teachers with whom I work. Now, I can get certification to teach psychology or health courses ( have a M.S. in Counseling Psych and an MPH in Public Health) without having to go back to school to take additional coursework in teaching.... It allows my students to learn from an expert in the field (for example, right now our music teacher teaches health and our science teacher teaches psychology) which gives me more of a chance to make the information more useful, relevant, and even accurate for them.

Teaching does require a special set of skills and it is an important job, but it isn't something that requires year of coursework at a college to get down. If you know the content, the rest you can master with practice and professional development courses provided through the district. Since teaching is a skills-based profession, there's no point in requiring coursework in skills people have already mastered; allowing the districts to provide individualized support increases the potential for new people in the field to succeed without making entry so onerous that nobody wants to bother.

Re: “T.H.R.E.A T. Watch: Immigration, Libel, Treason

To CW13 and all the others who believe that 45 is the answer to all their prayers:

I suppose you've never wondered why most Americans, about a month ago as high as 68% of us, don't approve of The Orange Overlord. One of the major issues is his "Me, Me, Me" attitude. He is a boisterous, narcissistic megalomaniac, and that rubs millions of Americans the wrong way.

Here are just a few examples of where the posts of you and your Chump loving pals fail and just how pretentious the man is:

If you knew anything about economics, you wouldnt believe the false statements which one finds daily in the president's tweets. He has repeatedly taken credit for the positive jobs, and that's nothing but hot air.
A president can affect the economy through the decisions they make, but it often takes years to see the impact, so...while some of the Baby Man's claims are true, most if not all of the positive indicators, continue trends that began during the (Gasp!) Obama administration.
The Cheeto in Chief is just one of many cooks in the kitchen that influence the economy. It is sad to see that he is the first post-WW II president to use the "I" did it instead of "we", "the country" or "businesses" did it, when speaking of economic growth and jobs.
Even as the unemployment rate has fallen, and other economic indicators like home prices and the stock market have been healthy, wages have remained flat. Yes, theyve gone up, as tRump has tweeted, but average hourly earnings were up 2.5% over the last 12 months as of July. Thats actually lower than the 2.9% pace in December 2016, just before he took office. So far, so much for the great paying jobs for the rust-belt folks.
Mr. Drumpf may deserve some credit for the boost in the stock market, which has taken place primarily due to yet to be carried out promises. His impact on job creation and overall growth remains to be seen.
A healthy stock market is great, espcecially for the 50% of Americans who own 70% of our riches. They will use their tax breaks to invest even more in stocks and become even richer. The divide between the rich and the poor will increase even more. The tax plan won't pay for itself, will add one trillion dollars to the deficit, and won't decrease, but increase, taxes for the middle-class and poor Americans.

Also, regarding ISIS, The Classless Commander is carrying out a plan with an international coalition that, again, was put into place by (Gasp!) Obama. ISIS was on the run way before The Tangerine Tyrant was elected. Giving him total credit for them now being defeated is just plain wrong.

Sincerely, DC

Regardless of what might preclude you to think something about an entire group of people that you do not know, everyone deserves the benefit of the doubt. This is what separates America from the rest of the world. The value of the individual for who they are instead of collective identity.

Re: “T.H.R.E.A T. Watch: Immigration, Libel, Treason

I love it! Donnie is right again!

For almost 40 years this American of Mexican decent worked exclusively in Africa, South America, Central America and a bit in Asia as a executive consultant to gas, oil, timber, fishing, mining companies and the governments in more two dozen countries. I have met at least a dozen presidents of these third-world paradises. I have lived for months on end in the jungles of central and western Africa and the Amazon basin. I know the peoples I know the cultures and Donnie is right.

Corruption is the life's blood of most and the people from the top down in the majority of these countries have been socialized from birth to live and work in corrupt societies.


To be sure it is not the individuals fault they believe and behave in corrupt ways in almost every endeavor of their daily existence, but it is as it is. Because of this culturally engrained approach to life, they cannot conceive of an other approach. Bringing them here does not help the U.S. in anyway; indeed it diminishes the U.S. Don't let them in and send those here back.

Rocky29, love the idea of Trump recording everything. It worked great for Nixon. What could go wrong, especially for a truth teller like Trump?

All I can tell you is the economy is rockin' and rollin' like there's no tomorrow. Wasn't it Clinton who said " it's the economy, stupid" Looks like he was right.

Re: “T.H.R.E.A T. Watch: Immigration, Libel, Treason

Over sensitive people in life. If it was said. I am with the President. Start recording everything.
That's what I do daily when confronted with a potential "liar" situation. And, lying today, no matter who it is, seems to be the normal now. I suggest everyone to wear a body cam. U of A is great for lying, as we seen in the local papers, that confirm my own experiences as well.
Quality Control. Ends any question between any parties blaming each other. Like civilian and police. For instance.

The Constitution of the United States provides the following for the removal of Donald Trump:

Article II, Section 4; 25th Amendment, section 4; and the 2nd Amendment.

Donald Trump is a Racist Neo Nazi, an Inveterate Liar, and Mentally Unstable. He is a threat to our Constitutionally Protected Freedoms and Nationally Security, and, as such, he MUST be Removed from Office Forthwith!!!

Re: “T.H.R.E.A T. Watch: Immigration, Libel, Treason

Germany just announced changes to their open border policy and will no longer allow chain migration to their country, and will enact stricter border security. And nobody called her racist.

Dick Durbin made the claim regarding Trump's words. Has anybody confirmed that Durbin is telling the exact verbiage? Two Senators have said that they did not recall him saying that. Upon closer questioning his marks appear to refer to the governmental leaders of the countries that are sending us their unwanted problem citizens. Cuba has done it, so has El Salvador and Mexico.

Let's not forget that even with the Russian investigation Durbin praised Putin in an attempt to marginalize Trump's Presidency.…

Has he ever tried this in the past?…

Re: “Governor, You're No Don Quixote.

It is too bad you can't be fair and honest. The Governor's speech was much more believable than the 50 years of Democratic promises to raise blacks out of poverty (by taking from others). And the analogy is perfectly timed for MLK Jr Day on Monday. The difference is that education has plenty of money, it's just that so much of it is wasted, as is our road money to repair potholes. So, politicians continue to lie to us, because some have a history of believing it.
