Re: “Danehy

Joe Biden represents, for a lot of Americans, a bit of nostalgia for a bygone era where at least you felt like you were walking on terra firma and not in quick sand. He is not the perfect candidate for the 21st century or for a "vision" OF A BETTER America. He is leading the pack because what he offers is stability in a very unstable Country. The vast majority of America is so fatigued and fearful of another 4 years of Trump that they will eschew for now all the promises of candidates who offer real progressive change for one that just give us four years of sanity. Yes, its come down to this. On the one hand its very sad; and on the other.....who can blame anyone who will pull the lever for Biden.

Re: “Don't Get Sad. Get Mad!

The Koch Brothers will not live forever; thank God. And a generation of kids are growing up now who understand intuitively that something is terribly wrong about the inequalities that are increasingly obvious to everyone else. The pendulum is beginning to swing in the other direction and I believe that positive change for human decency will come sooner than later. How many generations of Americans will forever kneel at the feet of the elites and do their bidding? The education issue is just one of so many that focuses our angry attention to all the disparities that exist. The Duceys and Kochs days are numbered. We, the American people, have the opportunity in two months to greatly increase the chances wi shall happen sooner than later.

Re: “After Her Immigration Bill Fails, McSally Crows That It "Nearly" Passed

And yet this District voted ,not once, but twice, for this woman. I'd like to know how MCSally worked "tirelessly" for anything in the 4 years she has been in Congress given that they have a recess almost every month and work less than even part time Americans. The Republican party has some nerve castigating hard working immigrants who work their ass off; when they have produced exactly one piece of legislation in the past 525 days (tax breaks for the very rich) and have worked "tirelessly" to destroy health care, medicare, medicaid, public education, and a host of other things that Americans want or need for basic survival. Those of us who live here in Southern Arizona should be ashamed that we are the ones who may be responsible for giving Arizona this redneck, right wing Trumpite to be our next senator. I hang my head in sorrow , especially when I consider that when McCain, a true American hero, may be replaced with someone who couldn't even fill his shadow should she become a Senator.

Re: “Koch Brothers Emerge (a Little) From the Shadows, Part 2: Connecting Some "Education Reform"/Privatization Dots

One only needs to pay attention to how kids communicate with one another; and even how their parents communicate with them to understand that we have created a totally disengaged society where all of our information comes from social media; even our relationship platforms. The Koch Brothers and their sycophants are merely hitching their wagons to a medium where actual thought and innovation has been eschewed for immediate gratification. I fear we are quickly becoming a country where it will be increasingly easy to manipulate people with the agendas of the super rich and where our children and grandchildren will increasingly become pawns in however the kleptocrats which to maneuver them. All these groups mentioned are merely the seedlings of mass brain washing. The good news, if there is any good news; is that the Kochs will eventually be gone with many of their comrades who have subscribed to the stealing of thoughts, emotions, compassion, and all the other qualities that used to make us whole and good human beings.

Re: “Flake? McCain? What Is Your Healthcare Line In the Sand?

Neither of these guys will vote against the party line. Why? Because the right wing billionaires led by Charles and David Koch bought and paid for their loyalty. The Koch Brothers also have McSally and many of the other Republican rank and file aparchniks in their pant pockets throughout the Stateand throughout the Country. Until people realize that every single Republican television commercial and every single Republican vote is driven, not by the people, but by the payoffs from the radical right, there is no such thing as a "conscience". Given the personal needs of their cadillac health care plans and their pensions for when they retire.........there is no other defining reason to vote their so called "conscience". The general population needs to turn off their television sets and get into the streets and take a stand against the "whores" in Congress who vote for our demise as a democratic Country. The only thing these people understand is a United front against their greed.

Re: “AP: McSally Urges Colleagues To Vote for This 'Fucking Thing,' aka Zombie Trumpcare

Let's get a few things straight. This was not a HEALTH BILL. This was purely a tax cut for the bloodsuckers of this Country who are already filthy rich and never seem to be satisfied with what they have. A $350 Billion tax cut that leaves the most vulnerable people in this society at risk of no or inadequate health care. What kind of "CHRISTIAN" or "JEW" that has any moral compass whatsoever is o.k. with taking away health care from children, from the elderly, from the sickest people in this Country in order to buy more shit that they donl;t need. I hope, that if there is a God that they somehow choke on their greed. As for McSally; she's nothing but a whore for the Koch Brothers who have financed each of her campaigns. Here's my question for you Martha. You claim to have been a pilot and officer in the air force. Tell me something. What is it that you think the purpose of an Army is for our Country? Is it something that exists in order to fuck over the very people you are supposed to "PROTECT"? If its possible to have any emotion at all for you and your ilk in the Republican Party...this morning you ought to feel SHAME above all other feelings.

Re: “Will Hispanics Help Elect Hillary in Arizona? 'Nah,' Said Jan Brewer, 'They don’t get out and vote.’

This neanderthal woman was elected by people who are either in their graves or are wearing their depends now. I mean look at her. She looks like someone from another planet; certainly from another century. Its hard to take someone from "yesteryear" very seriously except to say that what she represents and stands for is something that brings out the worst in human nature.I just isn she'd walk off the stage already. She had her moment! She wasted it.
