Why is everyone but Donald Trump absent from the crisis in Baton Rouge ?
The President is playing golf in Martha's Vineyard on yet another vacation - when a disaster of this magnitude strikes, it demands Presidential attention (remember the backlash President Bush received about his response to Katrina?) Where is Hillary Clinton? Where are Black Lives Matters, Reverend Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, and the rest of the race hustlers? Trump scrapped a major New York campaign event and is now with Mike Pence touring the area and reassuring people...
We don't get 'free' stuff. We get our tax money back in the form of benefits. We PAY for those benefits! The government just manages our money. Sometimes they do it well, sometimes not. Just like any financial trust.
Y,The government manages our money?well?Ha HA, no economist or financial expert on earth would make that statement or liken the government to any serious financial trust, that is absurd on its surface &shows you don't understand anything.
We'll you are wrong too. I am working not collecting welfare, and tired of being insulted by men who had wives cater to them when they got home. And sorry, with all the coli's, you get way more than you put in. Add medicare, its even more. We pay!
Leslie, our medicare premiums are taken out of our SS payments. You have gotten into an area you know nothing about. I could hit you with some numbers but those would be like facts which you always ignore anyhow. Just keep working to support me.
I am and so are my 3 kids and one grandson. And instead of gratitude,i get insults and patronizing attitude.Your 10dollars a week in 1950 has morphed into 200. And saying I'm on welfare is a lie. What facts you care about? Only smearing. That's it.
You said nothing about earned income credits,and that is not what I'm talking about. You said I get taxes back that I never paid. Free stuff for the bum, right? Sick of all of your and your crew backhanded insults. Just cause I don't think like you
Leslie, That is exactly what Earned Income Credits are, a tax refund on taxes you never paid. There is no other way to look at it but just another form of welfare. How can it be called a "refund" when it was never paid to the IRS?
I am talking about the 400 dollar increase he allowed us to earn before fed taxes came in to play.And I repeat, no one on ss can speak about welfare.You are way on the receiving end.As is your Republican Congress.You poke at working poor as scapegoat
Leslie - You need to do some reading and educate yourself on this before you make assumptions. If you do the math on a $400 deduction the amount you saved on taxes would probably buy you a couple lunches at today's prices.
Yes, but at least he was thinking about people like me, unlike those who only cater to the wealthy. And I'm glad you realize that today's prices are nothing like they used to be. Same as your fica payments then have blossomed into bigger payouts.
This concerted media attack on Hillary is the worst I've ever seen. And miss me w the liberal media lie. Everywhere everyone is following their scripts of attacking her. Nowhere do I see talk of trump u or tax returns or sending 9/11 evidence to burn
In the case of the president the Gov. John Bel Edwards a (Democrat) asked Obama NOT to come at this time. Apparently he feels a presidential visit puts a huge security demand on local resources. “It is a major ordeal, they free up the interstate for him,” “We have to take hundreds of local first responders, police officers, sheriffs, deputies and state troopers to provide security for that type of visit.” “I would just as soon have those people engaged in the response rather than trying to secure the president,” Bel Edwards continued. (“So I’d ask him to wait, if he would, another couple weeks.”) It's my understanding the president will be making a stop there next week. He's heeding the governor's request.
Well the truth is,this week or next week or a month from now, if Obama comes,according to the governor,needed resources will be taken away,the need won't be gone in a week,if the governor is right and not spinning BO shouldn't come at all
Are you referring to that 18 wheeler full of Supplies Mr. Trump brought? Yes, some toys for the kids who lost everything - your politics make you blind to the REAL help he brought...what did your Murderous Honey Hill send?
It is funny I hear black lives matter, Al, or Jesse being mention like they can do something. Lets be real...Donald is only there to shine a positive side of his situation. We all know he has been on the back burner these days. Haven't heard he offering his millions to rebuild? Wonder why? On the other hand, Obama has tried to get Congress to act for 8years...Nothing yet! Obama can't do it without Congress...those are the ones to be mad at. Not Obama, Hillary,Al, or Jesse, even your boy Donald...Don't hate the players...hate this dirty game called politics...
Odd, Obama has said he can do it without congress or didn't you hear the "I’ve Got A Pen And I’ve Got A Phone’ speech? Yeah, but the courts seem to think that's not constitutional. Odd,a "constitutional scholar" making that mistake.
Re-live the last eight years. Repairing infrastructure, jobs, green energy, closing gitmo, his political and judicial appointments, filibustering more in his adm equalling half the filibusters in us history! Obama wants, we say no.Teatardery 101
Ralph, have you noticed that anytime you answer with facts or seek the truth liberals don't engage the isuue but automatically label you a hater? Is that pathetically transparent or what? Just another way they have to avoid the truth.
Mr. Trump did not tour the area but went to small town and he and Pence were handing out small packages of ??? The area he went to was not flooded, but it did provide him with a photo-op and helped him to make a statement that the President was playing golf. Both President Obama and Hillary called the Governor of Louisiana and asked if they should come down there and they were told they would be a distraction and take rescue resources away from the victims. I understand that Hillary Clinton is having fund raising for the victims of the flood.
Hillary is fund raising? Doesn't she have a charity with over 2 billion dollars in it? I heard it only gives 10% to charity and keeps the rest but is she donating that to her fund raising for Louisianna? Or just collecting your money.
ALL of media is slanted right. Otherwise, they'd be clamoring for Donalds tax returns. Maybe they know what's in them and are protecting their boy dumpy. After all, he's a media darling, NRA darling, tea party darling...where the tax returns???
I said I heard10% & showed that was the truth,Y claimed I didn't so I showed her I did.OkDean so you r saying all the numbers in that article showing they cant add up are wrong?You haven't read it so you r the one who is a fake w a slant.
Taze Bro, I said the news site as a whole is full of BS. It's a well documented piece of garbage that tries and fails to "report" the news. On top of that, it hijacked the orginal The Federalist Papers. Taze your brain to life...bro.
She collects money for people. And she shows her tax returns to prove it. Wheres dumpys tax returns? Why is media not talking about that 24/7 like all things Hillary? Think. Maybe you'll figure it out.
Come on Mr. Schwartz, don't peddle in absolutist language. You're lettin' us on: 'Everyone but Donald Trump'. I ain't bein naive. I got family native to South Louisiana. But I ain't gonna catch you on semantics. That'd be damned childish.
I don't care for politicians paradin over graveyards. That goes doubly for everday folks who use a devastating event to promulgate their own persuasions. Who cares what candidate goes or no's? Screw em all. They're all mechanical teeth, with teleprompter'd mouths. None'll bring new roofing and a pair of hands ready to work. To really work. Talk is for the birds.
Why not focus on the brave, empathetic people who go to Baton Rouge to rebuild? That's a story worth telling. Tell me, why not?
The real rebuilders said they didn't want the secret service down there getting in their way. I can just see it, "What do you plan to do with that nailgun." Five SS men jump in front of the President, knocking over a wall they are trying to build.
Nice try - they aren't anywhere near the rebuilding point - still water to be diverted. The Gov only made his statements AFTER Trump was comin and no one else cared. He was giving fellow Dems cover fire
Ah, and neither is nytimes, huh? And after Donald smeared them, seems Russia went after a reporter!! My goodness it really is make America red again! Cause you know, what color is behind it all... .GREEN
President Obama’s vacation has nothing to do with him not visiting Louisiana. The governor of the state requested him not to come because it would be a drain on resources needed for recovery.
It is interesting to note the emphasis Obama haters place on him not showing up in Louisiana after taking only a 2-week family vacation for a flood that has caused at least 13 deaths. However, conveniently Obama’s detractors forget that George W. Bush was spending his 27th day of vacation on his ranch in Texas when Katrina hit. He spent another 2 days at his ranch before going back to Washington and refusing to go to Louisiana. Eventually, his aides persuaded him to at least do a flyover. Incidentally, 1,500 to 1,800+ people died during Katrina (no one knows the exact figure) and Bush’s statement was, “You’re doing a heck of a job, Brownie.”
What people, trump people? In that case, his visit was successful. Demonize the dems and preretend he's the Dali lama. Oh, and bush did take more vacas than Obama. And lots of American embassy people died on his watch. Lot more than 4.
Bulloney. Bush and wife went to Africa 7 times. Spent plenty tax dollars. And vacation is vacation. Righties blast Obama for everything bush and all other prez do, including personnell dying at embassies. No one accused gw of murder(except 9/11)
To be fair...The Gov. of Louisiana asked Obama to stay clear so they could keep vital roadways open for relief functions...I believe Obama has made the arrangements to visit now. Trump wanted to be the 1st "politician" to show support...he knew that anyone else, like Obama, would have trouble getting immediate clearance for a visit. As far as BLM...I doubt that the Powers in La. would want them there ...it is not a Photo OP...and you could never be sure if BLM would use the situation to promote their platform...so even if they requested to come, I am sure that request would have been turned down.

I am really curious about what other women think; because I've only recently started paying attention to politics since the media is ramping up Trump so much, lately. Before that, I'm sorry... I was not even SORT of...
So it's the final day. Let's be clear about the choice;Hillary Clinton is deeply unpopular. She may not be a nice person. There are so many negative reports about her, it is difficult to believe there is 'no smoke...
