Editor: Have you yet reached your Red Line?

This red line is to motivate you from being an observer to being an activist; a position where you make the effort to start contacting your elected officials. Last week the US Attorney General directed the FBI to investigate and classify parents as “domestic terrorists,” who are speaking out, voicing their opinions for their children’s education. What are the constraints to this? Is it if the parents start screaming in unison? How about swearing? Or maybe pointing their finger and accusing the school board of misbehavior? Perhaps throwing chairs? No, wait, that goes into the realm of violence.

I believe any speaker at a board or council meeting should remain respectful and non-violent and non-threatening. But really, having the parents classified as “Domestic Terrorists” should be a step way beyond the Red Line.

Fight for our freedoms.

bigblob you are such a loser with your beliefs that tax and spend is good. What's wrong with living within your means. Your just making it up about the republicans that just want to put the expense's of government on a credit card as you really have no way to justify what your party is doing. If we as the common folk lived by the government standards we'd be in bankruptcy in a heart beat. But no when our corrupt politicians make mistakes they immediately look to the servants to bail them out. They first threaten the people who really paid into the system by stating that our social security checks might be late or the military might have to wait for their money. They never say they are going to stop paying for all the welfare. But they do continue to import more welfare people with the open border policy. So bigblob I say to you get your head out of your a-ss and quit chastising us on the right as you sir are on the losing team unless you come around to the right side.

BigBob

jojo - Still listening to that weird little voice in your head "bigblob?" Once again no one named "bigblob" has ever commented here and you need to seek mental health assistance to deal with your problem.

Just read in this mornings paper where the brain dead guy signed a debt limit hike. What is so sad is that the politicians in both parties just don't know how to manage money. They are so focused on things that end up costing us more in the long run and then say we need to fix the problem by demanding more money. Also in the report was a statement that routine government payments to social security beneficiaries,

disabled veterans and active-duty military personnel would potentially be delayed, and the economic fallout in the US could ripple through global markets. Every time there is this big concern they always use the social security recipients. Why not cut the welfare spending, quit importing more people who will eventfully be supported by our tax dollars. Quit sending money to other countries to help rebuild there infrastructure.

What really galls me is that the people in government refer to our social security checks as entitlements. And the fact that they took our money and put in into the general fund. To top it all off they did it without our consent. As it stands now we have no one in government that knows what they are doing, all they know is tax and spend, keep raising the debt ceiling and someday China will come to bail us out and that will be the end of our way of life. And we can thank most of the career swamp dwellers for that.

jojo - Honestly you need to do some actual research before showing up here day after day and proving your ignorance - on every subject. And think about this, doesn't "tax and spend" make a lot more sense than the Republican way of "just stick it on the credit card?"

NorthLong

You have that all wrong Bozo. It's "spend and try to tax", the democrats way. There are too many doubts that the presidents tax plans will not cover his proposed spending.

joroger1978

Davel3 is another left wing lunatic that needs to get his head out of the you know where. Anyone that supports the lunatic crazy Bernie has to have a screw loose.

joroger1978

havasuguy you are really starting to sound like a true liberal lunatic with your comment about getting rid of republicans. You must be one of the leftest/socialist we hear so much about. Why don't you tell us what is so great about your demorat party with the brain dead loser in the WH. As it stands now your guy is sinking faster then the Titanic did. You demorats thought Trump was bad for this country but in reality he brought this country back from the brink of the half breed Kenyon refugees years of doom and gloom. Remember Obama's statements that he was going to fundamentally change this country. Just what did that mean. What it meant was that he wanted to change our great country into another 3rd. world sh-t hole. After all he was a Muslim sympathizer. It's in the Muslim faith to take America down. Biden is a clone of Obama and we can see it everyday with all the negative actions the moron is doing. It is really a shame that the so called press continue to give this lunatic a pass. Just can't figure that one. It would appear that the press wants to see this country fail. So why don't you tell us what is so great about your party and how it will make everyone's life so much better. And don't say we need to throw more money at social programs, this country just can't afford that, there is enough money being spent on welfare as it is, and too much being spent on illegal invaders.

jojo - “10 Reasons Why I Dislike Republicans:

1. They think Ronald Reagan was a good president because they truly cannot remember what he did to the country. He was the worst president of the 20th century, just edging out fellow Republican Herbert Hoover, whose prideful ignorance sunk the country into the Great Depression. Reagan exploded the national debt. He moved the social security ‘trust fund’ into the general fund then spent it on space lasers. He sold weapons to Iran, and then gave the money to Contras who ran death squads that murdered missionary priests and nuns.

2. Every Republican in congress came out to denounce Joe Biden for Afghanistan despite the fact that it was Bush who started the war and Trump who negotiated with the Taliban to withdraw our troops. Every single mess that Republicans create, they blame Democrats for not cleaning it up fast enough — just as they did to President Obama when he didn’t clean up Bush’s colossal mess fast enough.

3. They claim to be all about getting government out of the way of businesses, but when Carnival Cruise Lines wanted to implement a vaccine policy to prevent the spread of covid, Ron DeSantis signed an executive order saying they couldn’t require passengers to be vaccinated.

4. Republicans have not shut up since vaccines came out for COVID about ‘my body my choice’. They have said this endlessly as if it were some biblical tenet handed down by Jesus himself. But they ban women from having abortions, even when the mother’s life is at risk, because they don’t want women to govern their own bodies.

5. They claim to be the party of personal responsibility, but what have Republicans taken responsibility for? They won’t even admit that January 6 was perpetrated by the lunatics in their party and have told lie after lie about the insurrectionists being ‘Antifa’ or ‘BLM’ activists.

6. Republicans are always bemoaning ‘activist judges’, except when their judges are the ones being the activists and denying women the right of autonomy.

7. The nauseating hypocrisy of Mitch McConnell deciding that he wouldn’t confirm Obama’s Obama’s Supreme Court Nominee in ‘an election year’ — and then shoving Amy Barrett’s nomination through the Senate *while people were voting.

8. Passing measures to make it specifically harder for black people to vote because of Trump’s big lie.

9. The disgusting hypocrisy of Governor Gregg Abbott, who claims to be ‘pro-life’ after taking medication made from fetal tissue while 50,000 Texas school children are infected with coronavirus because he prevented schools from implementing safety measures to stop the spread of covid.

10. Their exaltation of the flagrant stupidity of Margie Taylor Greene and Lauren Boebert while Kevin McCarthy threatens trillion-dollar communication companies with consequences if they merely obey the law by handing over the records of the January the 6th conspirators who serve under him.”

[thumbup]BigBob... Good points! But what do I know. According to joroger1978

"Davel3 is another left wing lunatic that needs to get his head out of the you know where." Oh well... he's good for a laugh anyway. LOL

Another great post.

No need to worry. Trump just made a statement telling his followers to not vote in 2022 or 2024. Problem solved, as it will leave only the intelligent to vote. Thank you former President Trump. You finally said something that I can fully support.

Yesman123

Bitcoin is up 82% in 3 months and let me guess your "intelligent" self did nothing. Clown.

Davel3

Yesman123... Thank you for your concern over my finances, but I'm doing fine. Yes.

I do own some Bitcoin, but for me, there is more to life than simple watching my money. Now you may believe that's the only part of life you can control, but don't fool yourself into thinking that's true. Remember WorldCom, Enron, and 2007? I certainly do, but I would still suggest you diversify and not put everything into BitCoin. Now stop calling everybody a clown as one can still discuss politics and be an investor too.

No charge for the financial tip.

Yesman123

Lies. How did you buy it and what wallet do you use? Cannot wait for this clown answer.

Yesman123

Also good job regurgitating worldcom and enron. You must be a cnbc guy. Give your money to another man to take care of because based off this statement you are absolutely clueless. Cannot wait to hear what wallet you use for your btc haha

Davel3, I worked at 40 Wall Street years ago before the former guy purchased the property. I discovered that I have a low 'risk tolerance' therefore I no longer gamble, oops I mean 'invest'. I preferred being an entrepreneurial business owner producing goods and providing services, to the dishonesty of Wall Street. Just sayin'.

I fully support Warren Buffett's position that people with his wealth should pay more taxes. He truly loves America.

...

Davel3

RobertsonO... You nailed it again. I retired after working in management for a small corporation for years. 401K through my employer and personal investments for my retirement through financial advisors. I too discovered I had a very low risk tolerance and that I would rather lose my own money without anyone's help. Yesman123 thinks I'm kidding about WorldCom. Enron, and 2007. Of course he thinks he has some special control of the market and managing his money, but that's just ignorance talking. Many people including myself, who though they were doing everything right, took a big hit each time, especially in 2007, and couldn't do anything about it. Today, I own a small business, that provides a service that is highly specialized. The rewards both financially and personally are far better than working for someone else and investing in, as you said, the dishonesty of Wall Street. I too agree with Warren Buffett.

By the way, when you mentioned Cousin Brucie a couple of months back, I realized we were likely from the same place. Like myself, you already knew what the country was getting when they elected the "former guy." Such a shame that their still falling for his BS. Good talking with you my friend.

Davel3, I have no delusions about Trump, nor Republicans for that matter. I'm not a joiner I like keeping my options open, Independent.

I should be clear on his statement. Trump believes if his claims of election fraud are not solved, than Republican voters will stay home in 2022 and 2024. I honestly can't wait to read what Kandi, and the rest of the lunatic flock that write letters to the editor constantly, have to say about this. Their constantly claiming their "Great Leader" won and that they will never believe otherwise. They hang on the buffoon's every word, and have been urging everyone since the day Biden took office, to stand up as so-called "Patriots" for their freedom and get out the vote in 2022. Maybe it's just me who is tickled funny by this one, but considering all the "right-wing" garbage I've read on here, I can't wait to hear how they spin this one. [beam]

RobertsonO

Trump syncophants have followed his leadership to their COVID graves. Now they're being told not to vote. When is enough for those folks? When will they break their starry eyed spell?

Gee, I'm curious what twisted logic their favorite information outlets are going to use when breaking this latest news to them.

But ya, he IS solving problems for Democrats who beat him twice at the polls.

Third Eye

The Proud Boys showed up to a school board meeting in NC. They were there for one reason and one only...to intimidate. They shouted at kids and parents racial and homophobic slurs. How long do you think this remains without violence? Its coming and will start in a school board meeting if we don't get a handle on these insane idiots.

s - I'll bet you're one of those who feel the seditionists who attacked our seat of government on 6 January were just "innocent tourists" and not honest to God domestic terrorists who need to be executed for their actions.

Yesman123

Remember these politicians take your money and make millions off of it. Stop arguing over stupid stuff and follow the money.

BigBob

yes - So investing your pay is a bad thing in your world? So of course you are really upset about the billionaires who are profiting off the pandemonium, right?

Too old for this

It is the politicians who are causing the alleged pandemonium, Bob. The billionaires are just sitting there and profits naturally come to them. Change the politicians, and the laws, if you want to change the world. Or...get the Hell out of here and go somewhere you feel is a better place to live.

Yesman123

You really are clueless about this.

HavasuGuy

Too Old - Arizona is in the process of changing the politicians, with tRUMP’s help we’ll get rid of more republicans this next election…
