Incivility on the Letters   Leave a comment

These are the comments on the Letters to the Editor page of Alaska Dispatch News on June 15, 2017. This is what I’m talking about when I say incivil rhetoric is leading to violence such as the shooting in Alexandria.

What’s the crime Mr. Whittaker? Besides a move for impeachment will fail and will guaranty a conservative sweep in 2018. Just relax, no more hysterics.

Aside from obstruction of justice, I guess we’ll see if Mueller is allowed to do his job.

After months of Trump recruitment, Cindy McCain is reportedly headed for a job at the State Dept.

Senator John McCain’s wife.

If you are keeping tabs at home, Donald Trump named Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s wife, Elaine Chao, as secretary of transportation.

He recently named Calista Gingrinch, Newt’s wife, as the ambassador to the Vatican.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders, daughter of huckster Mike Huckabee, is the principal deputy White House press secretary.

And now Cindy McCain is reportedly headed to the State Department after months of schmoozing from Trump.

Staged public events that only serve to massage Trump’s ego will totally be taken at face value by future historians.

TRUMP IS ILLEGITIMATE

Since President Trump won the Republican nomination, the majority of his companies’ real estate sales are to secretive shell companies that obscure the buyers’ identities

A decade ago, when Donald Trump’s seventh bankruptcy had wiped out his ability to borrow, he was dragged back from the brink of financial failure by money from Russian oligarchs. That infusion of money came not only in the form of big investments in new building projects, it also came through a money-laundering scheme that created LLCs for the express purpose of grabbing Trump properties at premium prices.

Among the dozens of companies the Almaty lawyers say the Khrapunov laundering network used were three called Soho 3310, Soho 3311 and Soho 3203. Each was a limited liability company, meaning their ownership could easily be concealed.

What was sold then is a fraction of what secretive LLCs are buying from Trump today.

Don Duff – I could actually agree to a sales tax, but not before the State’s departments have returned to 2010 funding levels, which is a 25% cut from the high when Parnell left office. We need to remember that Parnell increased the budget by 27% during his years in office and now we’re being told that they can’t possibly cut the budget or survive at a budget set lower than $100 a barrel when we managed to do well with a budget set at $60 a barrel for decades. That’s ridiculous and until it is remedied, we the people should say NO.

I prefer a sales tax over an income tax because I am not being penalized for going to work everyday and I have some choice in how much I participate in this tax. Productive people shouldn’t be penalized for being productive. Consumption taxes tend to encourage savings and investing, which is much better for the economy than the folly of spending every dime we make on consumer goods that wear out and need to be replaced repeatedly.

#Sad Birthday party will be hosted by Rise and Resist, a direct-action group formed in the wake of Trump’s election victory last November. According to a press release from the group, it will involve hundreds of protesters gathering outside Trump Tower in New York City and delivering a special gift: plane tickets to Russia—or, as the group puts it, “back to Russia.”

“Donald Trump is proposing policy after policy that will be destructive for America,” said Andy Ratto, a member of Rise and Resist. “While he is in D.C. blowing out the candles on his cake, we’ll be out in the streets saying we hope none of his wishes come true.”

The party in Manhattan will be just part of a “national day of anti-Trump events,” which will also include protests around his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida and at Trump National Golf Course in Westchester County, New York, the group said.

Frank Baker, Obama put the US on the hook for $$Billions through the Paris Accord. We can’t afford that, nor should we pay it if we could afford to. We can stick with the clean energy agreements contained within, and some entities have already agreed to do their part. The same can be accomplished without the heavy-hand of the feds requiring it. If the accords were such a great thing, Obama would have asked the senate to ratify it as a treaty; he knew it would never pass, so he didn’t even ask.

DeVos Dept. of Education sued for ignoring request for info on sexual harassment investigations

——–

Title IX, which is a federal law which requires schools that receive federal funding to properly respond to and prevent sexual violence, is enforced by the Department of Education. Title IX has to do with civil rights—something that Betsy DeVos doesn’t seem too concerned with. During the confirmation, DeVos declined to answer multiple inquiries about whether she would enforce the civil rights of American students, and the ignored FOIA request hints that she has no intention of doing so. The fact is, she willingly serves as a member of a sexual predator’s presidential cabinet.

And that’s precisely why the Department’s refusal to share information is so important.

Republican legislators who you would probably never invite into your own home.

Today’s poster child will be Nebraska Sen. Ben Sasse, who has truly embraced the modern Republican tradition of flatly denying things they’ve said or done despite those things being (1) quite memorable and (2) on da videotapes.

Ben Sasse denies he said Obamacare was ‘worst law in our history’—but it’s from his own campaign ads

The right put a bunch of nihilistic egomaniacs in power. Even if we get rid of Trump we’re stuck with Religious nutball Pence. Check out Margaret Atwood’s seminal book and Hulu series The Handmaids Tale.
