The battle for equality is far from over

June 1, 2018

To the editor: Two non-Florida residents visiting Sanibel wrote in a letter to the editor in another paper that “the Civil War is over, get over it.” They are thinking about becoming residents....

Rut row..

"A White House economic analysis of President Trump’s trade agenda has concluded that Mr. Trump’s tariffs will hurt economic growth in the United States, according to several people familiar with the research.

The findings from the White House Council of Economic Advisers have been circulated only internally and not publicly released, as is often the case with the council’s work, making the exact economic projections unknown. But the determination comes as top White House officials continue to insist publicly that Mr. Trump’s trade approach will be “massively good for the U.S. economy.”

The chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers, Kevin Hassett, an economist who came to the administration from the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank, dodged questions at a White House briefing on Tuesday about whether tariffs would hurt an economy that has accelerated during Mr. Trump’s tenure."

Seems the list of the ten worst cities in the USA have ALL been long term Democrat controlled. EASY FACT to verify even for the impaired and small dog...but of course being mad as a hatter denying reality is the Mad Chihuahua's only game which is fine as it defines him. Needn't gnaw at my ankles Old Sparky..I'm just the messenger... Stats are there for all to see. To break it down for the slow Democrat/"liberal" among us.. If a city is in ruins...a city which has been run and under total control by only one Party for decade after decade (Democrats/Chicago) There is no other blame on anyone even a Goper or a Corporation (lololol..how stupid)for the city's demise. Grow up at 85! More childish fantasy from Wild-Eye Wooly.

Yes Of course u are right Mr Wollschdts.. there is no connection between long term Democrat control of city government with always the same result - violence corruption and decay...Seems the list of the ten worst cities in the USA have ALL been long term Democrat controlled..easy fact to verify even for the impaired.. but of course being mad as a hatter denying reality is your only game which is fine as it defines you. Needn't gnaw at my ankles Old Sparky..I'm just the messenger... Stats are there for all to see. FLASH! In the continuing skirmish between Union and Reb forces near The Robinson farm east of Ft. Myers Reb forces have captured cannons and a truce might be signed in a day or two at Dr. Robinson's home. These are amazing times here in the Twilight world of "liberal" oddities.

Seafood -- You like to cite Chicago.

That is really interesting to consider, for the problems in Chicage, Detroit, etc are directly attributable to Corporate Economic Abuse of the populations by GoPers (Cause), NOT to City government (Effect) ! ! !

Golly, you can not even get THAT obvious fact straight -- I guess that there is no hope for you ! ! !

11,000 Puerto Rico still w/o power. Privatization by schools and redevelopment by venture capitalists are being handed Puerto Rico.

"After months of darkness and stifling heat, Noe Pagan was overjoyed when power-line workers arrived to restore electricity to his home deep in the lush green mountains of western Puerto Rico. But to his dismay, instead of raising a power pole toppled by Hurricane Maria, the federal contractors bolted the new 220-volt line to the narrow trunk of a breadfruit tree — a safety code violation virtually guaranteed to leave Pagan and his neighbors blacked out in a future hurricane."

Trump passed on Puerto Rico. Death loll was covered up.

Over a ¼ century, I returned to the Oval Office hundreds of times during the administrations of Clinton, Bush and Obama. The jitters that accompanied my first Oval Office visit dissipated over time, but the respect, awe and admiration I held for the office of the presidency and the incumbents never waned. The presidents I served were not perfect, and I didn’t agree w/their policies. Each treated their responsibility to lead our nation with seriousness, intellectual rigor and principles that it deserved. I often heard them dismiss political concerns of their advisers, saying, it’s the right thing to do.” The esteem with which I held the presidency was dealt a serious blow when Trump took office. I saw a startling aberration from the remarkable, though human, presidents I had served. Mr. Trump’s lifelong preoccupation with aggrandizing himself intensified in office, and he quickly leveraged the office and his Twitter handle to burnish his brand and misrepresent reality. Brennan

Your traitorous cabal has become manifest for all to see.

I wish I could feel some sympathy but I just can't picture being your place. U have been too audacious in the face of factual exposure after exposure.

Suffer...

Everyone sees you as the local mini Bagdad Bob.

your name calling only cheapens any worth that your comments might contain. Think about it. While you are involved in this deep thought...consider this...maybe blacks should see what behavior they are doing is counter productive to being better accepted by white.

Think Republicans/Trump are not working as Russian agents against the American justice system?

The Paul Manafort Legal Defense Fund is up and running on the web. You can contribute any amount and your name and amount of money will be kept secret. Also, who is getting your money is a secret too.......perfect set up for the Trump supporter......and Trump too.....

Paul Manafort and Rick Gates (plead guilty) worked for years as political consultants for the pro-Putin party of former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovychthe pro-Putin party of former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych. He is being chared w/bank fraud and money laundering. Perfect connection for Russian agent then became Trump’s campaign manager.

Your welcome DOAkolov…

These folks are selling America out to Russia and China. They have been caught and the Republicans are defending them.

Blacks have enough tread marks on their backs to be the bridge if racist republicans would get an ounce of empathy.

There’s hope brewing.

400,000 more have health care in Virginia. A year ago the legislature voted to do away with Obamacare for thousands. So what changed? Well 21 Republicans lost their seats to Democrats in the State legislature definitely had a lot to do with it this change. Every seat except one up for election changed. These recently elected Democrats ran for election on supporting healthcare for Virginians.

The concept of "equality" is completely unrealistic. Everyone forms their own table of likes/dislikes. Only in a court of law can the concept of "equality" be given a valid existence. But there are those who dream of this ever becoming a reality...but it is...a dream and so it will always be.

The statistics for Wealth and Income disparity in the U S between the top and the masses completely override any chatter about employment -- Thus, employed, but STILL poor ! ! ! -- As the BigBucks flow overseas.

Income and Accumulated Wealth constitute the only MEANINGFUL Bottom Line ! ! !

Well, I can see the keys on the keyboard of Mr. Robinson. Those fingers first seek out the letter “r”. I know what is to follow. The cure all bellowed cry from some blacks whose emotions are marinating in the depths of inferiority and hope for salvation by screaming that racism is alive and well. They seek any instance in which to destroy what equally belongs to others. I reference the statues and other items that this nation as amassed as the building blocks of this country. One doesn’t acquire acceptance by attempting to denigrate parts of the history of this country that is shared by others. Perhaps it is time for blacks to seek ways to build bridges as opposed to the destruction of historical artifacts that are not the sole property of any one group but rather the property of history.

Poor paranoid Loopie still sees a White hood behind every tree. Always preaches blame "Whitey" rather than preaching personal responsibility. An interview with James the great basket ball star(worth 360 million)talking about having to continue to be "down with the struggle" Just had to laugh. Loopie the racist symbols start at the tollbooth? Agree the toll is high..that racist or is the bridge itself racist? Remove the bridge? I suggest the first step to help minorities is to help break their conditioning to vote Democrat (the party of hate, segregation and racism)Look what the Great Black Hope(SHAM)Bumo brought to Blacks- 28.5% unemployment!..8 years to get it right!..Under Republicans? Lowest ever on record..15 months!..Minorities have wonderful opportunities, ALL of us should be Thankful to be here..Take off your black hood Loopy or like Sharpton and Bumo do u NEED to keep it going?
