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

Hey Trumpuppets! Agent Orange is just getting started with his Destroy America First Agenda. His primary order of business was to destroy everything that President Obama approved. This all came about after Obama embarrassed tRump at the White House Correspondence Dinner in April, 2011. Orange Orangutan Revenge is relentless. Now that Obama's presidential history has been eliminated it's time for Egomaniac Orange to go after his other pet peeves, undocumented workers, Illegal immigrants, Muslims, and anyone not of the Aryan Brotherhood. As a trade-off tRump made his deals with the Republicans in congress to go after their pet peeves after his were dealt with. The first was mutual, The Affordable Care Act,(that means Obama Care for you Trumparrots). Now The Great Orange Douche Bag has to help the Republicans cripple or destroy Social Security , Medicare, and Medicaid. These programs to help the poor and middle class have been a red hot Thorn in the Republican Party's brain since Franklin D. Roosevelt initiated their existence in the 1930's. The GIANT TAX OVERHAUL is the initial step for this objective. While the poor and middle class are given a pittance, the wealthy are dancing in the streets about their newly acquired wealth. The loss of REVENUE, 1.7 TRILLION DOLLARS over the next ten years will necessitate the reduction or elimination of many government programs. Donald the Damned will save 40 MILLION DOLLARS a year because of the legislation he signed into law. I have no sympathy for the people who voted for tRump once they realize he is eliminating their incomes and their medical options. If they are too ignorant or stupid to realize that the Republican agenda has been to eliminate Social Security and Medicare for 75 years then they have signed their own death warrants.

Oh, the drama! "Trump wants to be judge, jury and executioner" - as does the press who take a reported offhand statement and report it as fact.

"Chem trails", actually called contrails, have nothing to due with aircraft exhaust.
They are formed off the wings when cold, moist air travels over super cooled wings turning the moisture into ice crystals.

Re: “Will Congress Find an Agreement That Protects the DREAMers From Deportation?

Mandatory E-Verify has been the law in AZ since 2008, but the Gov refuses to enforce it.
When asked, his office said it is the responsibility of the county to enforce the state law. What a chump!

Re: “Will Congress Find an Agreement That Protects the DREAMers From Deportation?

Mandatory E-Verify plus RAISE Act reforms (i.e., end to visa lottery, end to chain migration, reduction in overall legal immigration) plus border security. That would be a decent deal for amnesty for Dreamers. Anything less is a snowjob, that the President should reject. In the meantime, the States should get about the business of having DACA thrown out as unconstitutional.

Re: “The Skinny

If the best Democrats have to offer is Sinema, theyre not gonna win. I'm one of those independents that need to be swayed, and if I want a Republican, I'll vote for a Republican. For example, just this week, on January 11, Sinema voted FOR the bill to reauthorize the mass surveillance state, giving the president sweeping powers of warrant-less invasions of Americans privacy. She and all the other Democrats and Republicans who voted for this travesty (I'm looking at you, McSally) need to be defeated if they run for reelection, and I certainly dont want Sinema rewarded by being given the nomination for the Senate.

If Democrats want my vote, they better come up with a clear alternative to the Arpaio/Ward/McSally option. I want someone who actually represents me and my loved ones, not someone whose only interest is enriching themselves and their cronies and taking away more of my rights and freedoms.

Re: “Laughing Stock: Tucson Fringe, Top to Bottom

I believe the Festival PIN is $3.00. There are fun passes for different ways to enjoy the Fringe...ie two-show pass for $15 or a Sunday pass for $30. Of course, today is the last day...so go get the pin :)

I didn't stick anything in your eye.

If you comment on my post incorrectly, I will inform you of it.

I did give your Orange King some credit...and you failed to notice that.

I didn't even call you names or insult you. I was just trying to point out some facts.

Not opinions. Facts.

I could spend an hour relating to things I don't like about Trump. Don't accuse me of something that isn't true. I've been critical of him on more that one occasion. it's a moot point, I have nothing else to say.
AZ/Dc. I offer you an olive branch and you stick it in my eye. Bite me !!

" I've come to realize that no matter what Trump does, you will never give him an ounce of credit. "

The same thing could be said about you the other way around. Haven't you always remained zealously uncritical of Trump no matter what he does? You don't need to be a "never Trump", but that doesn't mean you have to be an "always Trump".

You obviously didn't read my post thoroughly.

I did give the Orange Orangutan some credit.

Please, don't comment on my posts if you don't take the time to read them thoroughly.

If reading anything over 3 sentences is too much for you, then don't bother to send me a rebuttal. It's embarrassing for me and you.

And yes...Carlin, Hendrix and Moon were all the ultimate masters of their craft. Meltdown Temper Tantrum Boy Trump...not so much.

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.
Peace

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.

OUR VALUES ARE NOT THEIR VALUES.

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.
