Re: “Anti-Trump Rally at UA

What, Again:
It doesn't matter how much oil there is still in the ground. If we extract it and burn it, we will kill the planet and our descendants. Why do we have to destroy things in the name of "progress" and "technology"? Just because you CAN do something, doesn't mean you SHOULD. We could instead focus on more sustainable energy for jobs, for building infrastructure, and for the future environment.

the Native people protesting in ND keep reminding us: you can't eat money, you can't drink oil. Water is life giving and life sustaining -- and if we pollute the air and degrade the water by burning more oil and coal , we will all suffer.

I don't want that for my loved ones, and I don't want that for yours.

Re: “Trump Human Rights Erosion And Termination Watch (THREAT Watch)

Workin it -- You're still not getting it. Why do you say "Clintons/Obamas" get rich and don't mention the whole family of Trumps? If you believe him, he's richer than the Clintons and the Obamas combined -- and his businesses outsource their production to China, Mexico, and lots of other places that are not "Made in the USA." I wish I believed he's going to change that, but I don't.

Trump's not gonna help you and his other supporters. He's really not. I wish y'all would realize that it's not Dems vs. Reps, red vs. blue. It's the rich elites (the Trumps AND the Clintons) against the rest of us. Really, it's easy to see if you just look. They try to divide us so we don't see how they're ripping us all off.

Trump doesn't care about you. None of them do. We must work together to help each other. Shop local. Hire local. Start local businesses. Get to know your neighbors. Please.

Re: “Trump Human Rights Erosion And Termination Watch (THREAT Watch)

Safier is wrong to stir up more fear and division. But all the Trump people being hateful in this thread are not making their point. The truth is that the American people are not going to flourish under either Trump or Clinton. The Democratic and Republican parties are two sides of the same coin. They both love rich elites and big corporations, and neither party cares about working people and middle-class people enough to actually do some good for us.

I wouldn't have been happy if Clinton won, and I'm not happy that Trump won. There will just be more wars, more pollution, less money for education and healthcare, and more homeless people, more foreclosures, and more bankruptcies.

Trump supporters -- you have been conned. He will ALWAYS side with his rich friends -- and that includes the Clintons. You've seen that famous photo of them laughing it up together. They're laughing at you. He's going to break every promise he made, and then hopefully you will realize that you have more in common with working people of all different races than you do with rich lying politicians.

Re: “Anti-Trump Rally at UA

I don't know what has happened to the Tucson Weekly, but y'all completely missed the thousand people who were downtown last night demonstrating against the Dakota Access Pipeline.…

Re: “Editor's Note

I strongly oppose the election of Hillary Clinton, and none of my reasons have to do with her being a woman. Just like I wouldn't vote for Palin or McSally just because they're women, I won't vote for Clinton just because she is a woman.

Her policies are awful for all but the very rich, and she certainly doesn't care about women and children who are poor or non-white or not American. She happily sent child refugees from Honduras back to an incredibly dangerous situation (to "teach" their parents), and she is currently ignoring the violent attacks on women and children (and men) at the #NoDAPL protests in North Dakota. She is silent while peaceful, unarmed protesters are brutalized with pepper spray, tasers, "less-lethal" rounds, and beatings, and while those arrested are strip-searched, left in their cells naked, and have numbers written on their arms. She has taken millions of dollars in donations from oil companies and the banks that are invested in this pipeline.

This is who you're voting for? Shame on you!

Watch this 7-minute video and then remember that Clinton (and Obama and most Democrats, as well as Republicans) are doing NOTHING to protect our environment and the human rights of the people who are fighting to save the water for all of us.

Vote third party (and you can still vote for a woman if you want: Jill Stein). #NeverHillary #NeverTrump

Re: “Editor's Note

Peabo -- you are repeating false statements and misinformation, which isn't going to help your candidate.

First, says that the anti-vax statement about Stein is unproven, and she personally is not anti-vaccine. The Green Party does support alternative medicine (including legal cannabis) and is opposed to the medical industry. I agree, and so do millions of other Americans.

Second, Nader did NOT cost Gore the election. Leaving aside the issue of the Supreme Court decision that handed the election to Bush, more Dems voted for Bush than voted for Nader, so if you're going to look for a lesson there, it's that major parties should nominate candidates that their members and independents will vote for.

You say it will be an "honor" to vote for Clinton. If you're really trying to get her elected, how about if you share some of her policies that you like and respect? As I said in a previous post, Clinton supporters never do that. The only reason they seem to support her is because she's not the other guy. That's not good enough.

Re: “Editor's Note

Sorry, Mari, but the only reason that third parties don't win is because people don't vote for them.

There's no way I can vote for Clinton, who approved of thousands of refugee children being sent back to danger to "send a message to their parents." I can't vote for someone who has brokered some of the largest international arms sales in history (can you say cluster bombs?) but then claims she's for "gun control." I will not vote for someone who thinks that the U.S. has the right to intervene in other countries' elections (e.g., Honduras), while she oversaw the theft of the Dem primary (…). I could go on and on.

I refuse to vote against my conscience and my values. No one, even you, seems able to make a reasonable argument for why anyone should vote for Clinton except "OMG Trump!" The DNC built this, they own it, but they don't own me. We've been saying for months that Clinton cannot win against Trump, but we have been ignored.

I'm voting Jill Stein, Green Party. I hope you join me.
