PROTEST: Citizenship questioned

Print Article

I noticed there were 300 (that’s not the same as Spartan 300) at the anti-Trump rally Saturday. I wonder how many are actually true citizens of North Idaho, or just anarchists or part of the San Francisco movement of resistance against freedom of speech, religious freedom, democracy, free market and the Constitution. They want Trump to release his tax returns. That’s much like Hillary Clinton trying to come clean on Benghazi and in her own words (What difference does it make?). Really, human lives don’t matter?

And there is a concern about tax release, really? At this point what does it matter? It seems like the resistance needs to get focused on real issues about our country like: ethics, morality, economy, societal successes, open free opinioned debates, less government programs (government programs is not funded by free money, sounds like Bernie Economics; taxpayers are paying for it). I wonder if the resistance actually knows since Obama came into office our economy has been ranked from the top best economies to No. 17 on the world economy list that’s below Hong Kong, Japan and the Netherlands, which are in the top 10 economies.

Thank you Obama Economics (only skills he ever had was community organizer). The reason why our economy is No. 17 because of more federal laws and taxes that restrict free market and business growth.

CIVILITY: An unlikely example

June 21, 2017 at 5:00 am | Coeur d'Alene Press There is a lot of this “We hate Trump or We Love Trump” that I read in The Press. How about printing what Ted Nugent said? He backed off, and said that he regretted asking Mr. Obama to “Suck on my ma...
