Fight for the USA
In response to Robert Dryden: You say we need to take “the courageous stand of demonstrating fairness and objectivity by moving toward political cooperation.” For the past eight years, President Obama and his family were trashed by the Republican party. They closed down the government, refused to work with him, would not hold a hearing on his Supreme Court nominee. There was no effort in the least of cooperation from the Republican Party and Republicans refused to acknowledge Obama as their president. And his family was insulted to no end.
I will not “embrace the coming changes and heal the abyss.” I will fight and scream my protests and refuse to acknowledge this horrid person as my president. We cannot let this country be destroyed by this lying, racist, misogynistic sexual predator.
Cyanide Kool Aid
I was amused by [Bettyann Craddock’s] pompous, delusional rant against “morally bankrupt” Leftists. She drank the cyanide-laced Kool Aid with many in this country, somehow deciding that a racist, misogynist, anti-immigrant tax evader in bed with the NRA, KKK, Assange and Putin would be a better choice than that “nasty woman” with a private e-mail server. ... If you assume to be a part of “this nation of tolerant, open-hearted, generous and considerate family-oriented people,” then how do you, in good conscience, explain your choice to your children and grandchildren? ... We just wanted “change,” you said. Be careful what you wish for!
News, November 9: "This Guy”
Love You, Anson
What an amazing cover! The Reporter covers have gotten so much better with Anson Stevens-Bollen, but this one blows them all out of the water. So simple and says so much. The coming undone. The fading to black. The reference to when the flag is flown upside down it is a distress signal. The seriousness. The absurdity.
The Flippiest Flopper
Nothing the president-elect has said during his campaign or after election day is truly the same answer. Trump has been a registered Democrat longer than he has a registered Republican, and has changed parties at least five times. He is never consistent and is constantly changing his views. The change in perception after Election Day leads many to believe the framework for his campaign isn’t what he wants to do but rather gather more votes.
