Hurtful words

Recently, President Donald Trump attended the World Series game. He was announced and was greeted by thousands chanting, “Lock him up.” This is disrespectful to the office of the presidency.

No comparison

I’m getting tired of every time I turn around these people that they hire to do the land studies and everything else always want to compare it with Kansas City. We’re not Kansas City; we’re St. Joe.

No difference

I am not always impressed by Trump’s aggressiveness and arrogance by any means. But can you tell me the difference between former President Obama saying, “Tell Vladimir (Putin) I’ll have more flexibility after the election” and anything that Trump has done? I just don’t understand what the difference is.

Doesn’t add up

May God have mercy on this country. Seattle school district is saying that math is racist. How can math be racist? What a crock.

A little discipline

I read an article about Apple Bus service. I wouldn’t want to be a bus driver and put up with all the nonsense they do. And the word “discipline” also applies in classrooms. Maybe you ought to think about that. Maybe that would help the school district, and Apple Bus.

Tick, tick

Much of the big money in politics problem could be solved if we could put time limits on political campaigns.

Move on

Why are people calling in to complain about Hillary Clinton? She isn’t running for president now. That’s all in the past. Even though she was treated unfairly.

Go pout

Poor House Speaker Nancy (Pelosi). She likes to keep secrets from the president then pouts when he does the same to her. The more people who know something, it is not a secret for very long. So, go off in the corner and pout.

Speaks like us

I think the way that Trump described the death of al-Baghdadi is a wonderful thing. It’s about time we had a president say what the rest of us think for a change.

United front

Republicans are united in one thing: They would rather protect Trump than the Constitution.

Scam alert

Be aware of Medicare calls! They are a scam!

As is

The schools are just fine. Leave them alone, and quit getting so greedy.

So, we have a phone call that the inner circle decided needed to be hidden away from everyone but the most loyal eyes. A phone call that prompted several career National Security advisors and experts to have conversations about the impropriety of such a call. And a call that led to instructions to career diplomats that caused them to have discussions about the impropriety of those instructions. Many of those people, in defiance of the chief of the administration, have come forward to tell Congress about their concerns. And the best that the administration has is “witch hunt.” Then members of Congress whine and cry and engage in ridiculous public demonstrations about the process of the House saying they’re not being transparent. So the House puts forth a resolution to move the process to a more public stage and not one of those people complaining votes in support of the very public process they were complaining didn’t exist.

The “sham” is this presidency and his continued desire to solicit help from foreign governments for help in elections. Trump loves Trump.

Gosh, aj, would you like to see a transcript of that "hidden" phone call? I can probably get you a copy from Vlad or Xi.....or you could just Google it

aj0201

You’ve seen a transcript? When? That hasn’t been released. A MEMO of that phone call was released and one of the people, who Trump describes as “human scum,” that listened in on the actual call attempted to correct that memo. Doesn’t change the fact that their initial reaction was to hide that call.

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Tim Morrison, President Trump's top Russia official on the National Security Council, testified that the change the"scummer" wanted to make to the phone call transcript was INCORRECT. Just another attempt by a Obama/Brennan/Clapper plant to falsify the record, won't they ever give up?

Marty_Chuzzlewit

Morrison also pointed out key factual inaccuracies in testimony provided by William Taylor, a State Department official who works in the U.S. embassy in Kiev, Ukraine. Morrison said that, contrary to Taylor’s claims, Morrison never met with the Ukrainian National Security advisor in his private hotel room. Morrison also said Taylor FALSELY claimed that Ambassador Gordon Sondland demanded a public statement from the Ukrainian president committing to investigate Burisma, a controversial Ukrainain energy company that paid Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son Hunter millions of dollars to sit on its board. “My recollection is that Ambassador Sondland’s proposal to [Ukrainian National Security Advisor Andriy] Yermak was that it could be sufficient if the new Ukrainian prosecutor general — not President Zelensky — would commit to pursue the Burisma investigation,” Morrison testified. Morrison testified that the transcript of the phone call that was declassified and released by Trump in late September “accurately and completely reflects the substance of the call."

Marty_Chuzzlewit

The lying, perjurious "scummers" are the ones who should be prosecuted, NOT President Trump who has done nothing wrong.

Obama Clapper plant???? Hahahahaha!

Elizabeth Warren admitted yesterday her health plan would cost about 2 million jobs, but said we have to do it to be "fair". I would ask her if that is "fair" to the 2 million who lose their job??

aj0201

Yep. Especially if those 2 million people don’t add to my healthcare. Here’s the good news, if we have medicare for all, their unemployment won’t affect their ability to see a doctor if they need to see one.

mywagginisdraggin

medicare for all is a NO-GO, believe it

mywagginisdraggin

Warren is just another Dem nutcase

Adam Schiff would make a good used car salesman. That's about all. He is the designated "hit man" of the Democrat Party.

Hurtful words---(booing of Trump at a ball game)---Another result of liberalism in our society. People behaving as undisciplined animals because of the hatred inflamed by liberals and a liberal media. Liberalism equates to a lack of respect for anything and anyone. Antifa attacks people exercising their right to free speech. A liberal House of Representatives uses false charge in an attempt to impeach a sitting President. No respect. Do you know how long a society without respect will endure? Not long at all. The current fight in Congress is about the survival of our nations. Liberals want to destroy all that we have built in 200 years in exchange for another Russia or North Korea. They are clueless!

aj0201

Umm, it could be because we have a moron as President. That is a possibility, you know. Trump gets booed at a game and conservictims whine. Hillary gets chants of “lock her up” and conservictims believe their acting according to God’s will.

I'maLumberjack...

Good point, aj.

mywagginisdraggin

God doesn't force Hillary to run her mouth, Hillary is a CROOK

aj0201

Says who? She’s been investigated BY FAR more than Trump. No criminal charges have been filed. James will claim, without evidence, that she paid people off. But we all know this isn’t true.

mywagginisdraggin

apparently you only read what you want to read..the world in general KNOWS Hillary is a crook

aj gets booed here, it doesn't matter, and God has nothing to do with it

Thought: Epstein "suicide" now a suspected homicide. Two guards asleep at the same time. Camera broken. Cellmate removed just prior to the death. Bill Clinton made 26 trips to Epstein's island of underage exploitation. A trial would have uncovered much information. Remember Vince Foster?

aj0201

Jumping into conspiracy theories now? Cmon.

beelog

United Front---Yes, only Democrats care about the Constitution. Baloney! All Republican want is for the Democrats to follow the Constitution--not to bend it to their wishes.

beelog

A little discipline--(in schools and on the bus)--Another problem created by liberalism. Focus on cultural diversity, call math racist, "everyone wins a trophy", every classroom teaching socialist philosophy, disciplining a child is equated to damaging their fragile egos. Education has been taken over by liberal philosophy, test scores are pathetic, the proposed solution is always "throw more money". What a society liberalism is trying to promote!

aj0201

But remember, you said to drop out was a bad thing.

mywagginisdraggin

if kids aren't in school to learn...throw their azzes out

I'maLumberjack...

Aunt bee, if your world is as depressing as your posts indicate, perhaps you should think about trying another dimension?

jdw64485

When i was in school discipline wasn't a problem discipline on the bus wasn't a problem. If you misbehave in class or the bus. You got your little butt paddled. Then it was repeated again once you got home. Padding solved loads of problems

beelog

Doesn't add up---(math as racist)--Another piece of evidence that the Left has lost its collective mind! It appears that liberals seek things to "offend them". I'm afraid we don't have enough psychologists to address the problem.

beelog

Liberalism---Shoplifting is rampant in California. Why? Proposition 47, whereby shop-lifting less than $950 is not prosecuted. The homeless street people are very aware of this and taking full advantage. Now the retail store (not the state) must purchase (for liberals, that means "pay for") those items from the manufacturer. How long do you think the merchants will "take this" before closing their store?

beelog

Go pout----(Pelosi)--it is just her attempt to say "I'm important"!

beelog

No difference---both were nothing but politics. But the Democrats pretend to be outraged when a Republican says something, but strangely silent when it is said by a Democrat. Intellectual equivalent of 2-year olds.

Fantastic October jobs report just released shows President Trump's policies to Make America Great Again, Keep America Great Again continue to improve economic conditions for the workers of our country. Solid job gains in spite of UAW strike and upward adjustments for previous months add up to a 3-month average of 176K new jobs per month. Average hourly wages are up 3% for the year, equaling in just one year ALL the wage growth during the eight Obama years. The sour grape liberals keep trying to talk down the economic boom the country is experiencing under President Trump's leadership, but he just keeps on, keepin' on working for us. #TRUMP2020

mywagginisdraggin

GREAT ECONOMY...!!!!

Go Trump!!

aj0201

No difference, most Trump supporters don’t have the capability to understand the difference between flexibility to negotiate treaties and inviting foreign help in an election.

JohnQTaxpayer

Severe over generalization from an admitted hiLIARy-voter , & obvious Trump-hater... [whistling]

mywagginisdraggin

whatever it takes, treaties should be fair, not lopsided...

mywagginisdraggin

BOTH Dems and Repubs have enlisted foreign help in the past...isn't a big deal

difference ? of course, they are two separate entities

Obama's attempt to interfere in the Israeli election received no attention from the liberal press. This is all about hatred for Trump because as a political novice he defeated the "princess".

aj0201

How did Obama interfere in Israeli elections? Be specific. I’ll wait....

mywagginisdraggin

absolutely true..ask aj

James Bond1

What do you mean "no difference"...……….the employment has improved veeeeeery significantly. "unemployment is below 4%" And that is pretty different. Lots of other things are improved...………"BIG DIFFERENCE".

aj0201

Hey James? The post above has nothing to do with unemployment. Go back to bed.

James Bond1

But, aj, Trump is making it better. all the numbers are better...….regardless of what you think (if that's possible) I figured that when I was taking a nap.

aj0201

Well, that’s debatable. But the point is that this particular post has nothing to do with unemployment.

I'maLumberjack...

Your two party system is destroying the US. Your nation is definitely NOT "united". Most care more for their party than the welfare of the people of the US.

mywagginisdraggin

THAT i agree with

Yes, only AJ in his omnipotent wisdom, can realize the difference. Aren't we fortunate to have him to enlighten us!!

aj0201

Nah not just me. Anyone with a 4th grade level of education should be able to understand the difference.

oh yeah..the good old byline.."the fourth grade level"...immaturity at it's best

Just waiting to see how long you will continue to ask. I'll look forward to tomorrow's column. I am interested in obsessive behavior.

So you don’t have the integrity to admit your wrong? Why is it so hard? All these months you go on about the virtuous nature of “conservatives” yet honesty being a key virtue and you don’t have it.

I know you won’t answer this but just let that sink in just a little. While you’re bashing the “booze, cigarettes and tattoo” crowd for their lack of virtue, maybe realize that you’re in the same boat.

Obsession---"a thought which continually preoccupies or intrudes on a person's mind".

Liberals have minds? All I ever see from them are reactions to stimuli, much the same as exhibited by other low animal forms.....leeches, for example
