Placeholder It's Your Call

No tanks

It appears our wannabe dictator, Trump, now wants tanks in our capitol like his new best friends Putin and Kim do when they put on their “I love me” displays. What a farce Trump is, and a coward. His whole family is a joke. I’m a veteran, and this is not how America works.

Open door

Blame Trump? Did you ever think that the face that Obama was not enforcing laws made it more inviting for these people to come up here and try to get in?

It’s a start

It was very great news to see that we are demolishing these blighted houses. There are so many. It is disgusting that we have a city that you can’t even take somebody around the neighborhood. It’s destruction to our home property values, and somebody needs to do something. And just knocking down one is a great start, but we need to knock down hundreds of them.

Bad math

One hundred and ninety million people in the United States have health insurance. The Democrats want to ruin that, for 12 million people who don’t. Why? Do they think we’re stupid?

Car crazy

It’s hard to believe that so many city employees get to drive city cars home. It’s the craziest thing I ever heard. This is crazy. Let them drive their own cars. We pay for our cars, we pay for gas, we pay the payment on our cars, not other people. Maybe I can get my neighbor to make my car payment for me.

Danger zone

Understand, the Downtown gates at Coleman Square are there to protect pedestrians at the intersections. How have we become so paranoid that we think we must keep every man, woman, or child from any injury or death? Things will always happen, and people need to have enough sense to take care of themselves. There are far more dangerous places than that.

Take them in

I’ve just seen the news about all the overcrowding down in Texas in all those detention centers down there, and all the people who are out protesting all of this. Why doesn’t each one of those protesters take two or three of them home and have them stay with them? That would solve a lot of the problem.

Fixing a hole

Is the state highway department, the DOT, ever going to fix the intersection of Frederick and Woodbine? They’re responsible for it. We, the taxpayers, should expect better than this. This is unacceptable, the condition that intersection is in.

Biden watch

After watching Joe Biden, it does not take a rocket scientist to know something is not right here. Something is not clicking up above.

To AJ--wages have grown because Trump has created a booming economy where workers are in demand---thus employers must offer better wages to attract workers. There is a HUGE problem finding workers today--ask any employer.

False Bee... Russian Republicans have Blocked Every Bill to increase Minimum Wage

zzsnot303

increasing minimum wage simply means businesses pass along to consumers the additional costs. any fool knows costs go up when wages go up... the only one to make money on higher wages is the tax collector. WAKE UP

JohnQTaxpayer

It's the same thing as giving your long, time-accrued 'spending-power' away to a bunch of uneducated, live-in-their-parent's-basement, Liberal minions who have done nothing to improve their lot in life, except complain about their lot in life...[huh]

jdw64485

Employers should sit the wages they pay. Why should a employee who does 90% of the work be paid the same as the employee who only contributes 10%.

zzsnot303

excellent point jdw

aj0201

Very good. But what did trump do to “create a booming economy?” There is no significant difference in trajectory of any economic indicator from what the previous administration did.

aj0201

Trump inherited a tailwind and hasn’t really changed anything.

James Bond1

aj00201...……...sad, that you try so hard. The reality is that Obumer didn't add much to the party. If you believe Trump hasn't changed anything, you are simply staring at a mirror and getting that imput. There is sooooooooooooooooo much going on that Trump initiated, you can't even notice the scraps along the side road that Obumer distributed. Obumer still can't even find the 57 States.

aj0201

Trump apparently has found an airport from 1770. Were you there? The basic economic indicators disagree with your assessment. They agree with mine.

James Bond1

Not according to what the panel members from WSJ said in their discussion...…..they seem to think the economic reports (for Trump) were increased. I'm inclined to believe them.

aj0201

No. Even the WSJ admits that there has been no significant change in the mechanisms of the economy. Just a continuation of what already been happening. What Trump has managed to do so far, is not get in the way of an economy that was already in its way.

Illegal immigration---The world wants to come here because it is the greatest nation in the world. Russia does not illegals (or legal) trying to sneak in. Neither does China (except for North Koreans for whom "anywhere" would be better. What we need are skilled immigrants who can contribute to society, not people without either education or skills who will put a burden on our welfare system and prison systems.

Little known fact, near the end of the American Revolution, as he was writing the Star Spangled Banner, Francis Scott Key inserted “the rockets red glare” in favor of “the 747 in the air.” Trump has set up a commission headed by Kris Kobach to look into restoring the song to its original phrasing, citing 3-5 million voters having requested the change.

Sociallyunacceptable

We've had a border problem ever since there's been a border. The problem now is that there are more people than there were in the beginning and the problem is getting worse due to the shear numbers of population increases in places that can't sustain the growth. But that doesn't mean we have to take them all in. And while you're at it you should also give Obama credit for being the original cager of children.

REM541

Please find some facts, the situation was a bit different. A huge influx of children not traveling with an adult, at one point more then four times the average. They did house then while trying to place them in a safe environment. Very seldom were families separated, but under the individual number one and his racist cohorts they made all adults coming across the border a criminal and immediately separated families because of their christian family values. Keep swallowing those trump lies.

James Bond1

REM541...……...you should drop by the gate and visit with those folks. A big bunch of those "children" were shuffled off when they left the countries south of Mexico. Their parents never moved an inch. Especially when they pocked the money the people who bought their kids, headed out. Keep swallowing those socialist lies.

James Bond1

REM541...…………...there are apparently different "groups". Some are "children" without parents. Their parents gave them up or maybe even sold them. Trump sure isn't responsible for them. There are other circumstances where children are wit h their parents. Be careful when you talk about "Christian family values"...…………...the socialist/dem are a far cry from "Christian" and even further from "family values"

“"In June of 1775, the Continental Congress created a unified Army out of the Revolutionary Forces encamped around Boston and New York, and named after the great George Washington, commander in chief. The Continental Army suffered a bitter winter of Valley Forge, found glory across the waters of the Delaware and seized victory from Cornwallis of Yorktown. "Our Army manned the air, it rammed the ramparts, it took over the airports, it did everything it had to do, and at Fort McHenry, under the rocket’s red glare it had nothing but victory. And when dawn came, their star-spangled banner waved defiant.”. —— David Dennison, Stable Genius.

REM541

Unbelievable!

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Washington was a visionary. He knew well in advance where the airports would be in all 57 states. Really guys, that's the best you have? The President's address was a heartfelt tribute to the American spirit and especially our military. Later, during the fireworks program carried live on PBS, the military band played "God Bless America." That surely made the loony lefties tighten up their Nikes. It was a great day, a great event in celebration of the birth of our nation.

Gold Star mom Amanda Jacobs spoke at the “Rally for Freedom” event that denounced Socialism! She spoke in the honor of her son, who died fighting for liberty, and how his and his fellow men and women in uniform, have given more to our great nation than any athlete could dream of giving! She said… “And when I look at this country today, and I wanted to say this loud so many times, Colin Kaepernick was getting paid $14 million a year to throw a ball. My son died for $14,000 a year, and he’s given more than any football player, any athlete has ever given.”

Ummm, James? I didn’t. I made no such comparison. The lady said that HER SON gave more than any athlete. I pointed out that she forgot Pat Tillman.

That was back in 2004 and he was killed by friendly fire. Perhaps this Gold Star mother wasn't even aware of Pat Tillman? He was definitely a hero but let's give this dear mother a moment of respect. Her son gave his life in fighting for freedom. I saw where American flags were being burned during the "Salute to America" program - that's disrespectful to both of them.

Not even close to the best I have. Just the latest. There’ll likely be something again today, tomorrow and the days following. As regular as the sun rising in the East, Trump will say something absurd.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

July labor report, 224,000 new jobs in one month thanks to the now roaring economy unleashed by President Trump and his policies. What's absurd about that?

aj0201

You say that like it’s a rare thing! 😀. 200,000+ new jobs have been a regularly achieved number for several years.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

But, these are well-paying full-time jobs compared to the part-time jobs with low hourly wage rates added during the Obama reign of economic terror. Wages for hourly and non-supervisory employees have risen nearly as much just in the past twelve months than during the entire eight years Obama put the brakes on the American economy with stifling rules and regulations. What's not to like? The way the President talks? Get real!

He didn't have a teleprompter - it was not functioning due to the rain. Try again, genius!

So the idiot just winged it and in that pea brain mind of his he put 1775, Washington, and airports together. That's what you're going with? And you wonder why we think republicans are ignorant.

B4

Well, that was Obama's excuse when he said his " father" served in WWII. Maybe Obama had a pea brain too? And you wonder why we think democrats are ignorant.

aj0201

"I knew the speech very well so I was able to do it without a teleprompter," he said. "And it was actually hard to look at anyway because of the rain." On previous occasions, Trump has derided critics for relying on a teleprompter when delivering speeches. In 2012 he said of then-President Barack Obama, "Why does @BarackObama always have to rely on teleprompters?" And in 2016 he railed on his Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton tweeting, "Bad performance by Crooked Hillary Clinton! Reading poorly from the telepromter! She doesn't even look presidential“

aj0201 let us not become jiminy clones and harp on a mistake in a speech like 57 states. I think t rump is intelligent enough to know that there were no airports in 1776, or maybe not.
