Re: “Danehy

"Getting involved with the media" makes sense, Tom. You should try it.

Re: “DACA Demonstration in D.C. ("Up, Up with Education! Down, Down with Deportation!")

Beneal,

The business community supports DACA because its repeal will cost them big bucks. Not because they are kind and empathetic to the plight of the young people at risk.

Re: “DACA Demonstration in D.C. ("Up, Up with Education! Down, Down with Deportation!")

Glad you were there, David, to demonstrate support!

Not sure what Trump is thinking with his "maybe I will revisit this" comment if the Congress fails his test. That said, I think every blind pig finds an acorn or two and believe Trump was right to call out Congress to get off their collective asses and get something done that has bi-partisan support, support of the business community and a large majority of those polled on the issue. And then smacked his Republican congress critters by siding with Pelosi and Schumer on the debt ceiling.

Strange times.

Re: “Danehy

Now I understand that a news source like the NYT essentially publishes only fake news according to Trumpistas but maybe we have some readers here who will at least consider the following as an indication that Yes, there were and are Obama-Trump supporters, a fact Danehy cannot wrap his mind around.

Democrats can continue to live in denial and blame their (and the nation's) catastrophic loss to James Comey, the Russians, misogyny, or the latest excuse de jour but they do so at their own risk and that of their party's future. Two candidates, and two candidates only, excited the masses and held rallies of a scope not often seen in presidential elections. Their names were Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump. Not Clinton. Not Bush.

Re: “Triple Play

"Ward 3's roughly 18,000 Democrats and 12,000 independent voters will choose between three Democrats in the Aug. 29 primary..."

I thought independents could not vote in the Democratic primary. This is either good news or a mistake on my part or Mr. Nintzel's. I hope Jim is right.
