I apologize. I cannot get the items in correct order.

THIS should start my post as iy did when I previewed it:

Yes many people have protested President Trump.

Some protest what he has said. some protest what he has done, and some are rude and insulting.

Many protested the previous president also.

I'm glad you posted this, Herring. It serves as a reminder that those on the Right who claim that they "accepted Obama's presidency without any fuss, protest or violence" (paraphrase) have short memories, or choose to remember alternative facts.

Obviously some on the right engaged in this behavior. It might come as a surprise to you, but some on the left have as well. And while I didn't vote for Mr. Obama either time, I did accept his presidency. So please, stop painting everyone on the right with the same racist brush.

Herring entitled this thread "Some Peoples Response to President Obama".

That doesn't seem to be painting everyone.

Not all people on the right are racist. But I would guess that all racist voters support Trump.

I am glad the Tea Party and others who have and will protest have that right.

In too many places it is not allowed.

In some countries punishment punishment takes many forms including imprisonment, torture, and death.

I support those who engage in protest honestly and peacefully.

Amendment I

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

I know Chare does too. I just want to explain my opinion.

I have been very politically active twice.

First was decades ago from 1956 to 1965 for civil rights.

One was during the 1990s and this century for safe nurse staffing in hospitals.

It is now the law in my state.

I think all our hospitals should staff to ensure, when needed, the immediate availability of a registered nurse for bedside care of any patient as required by CMS for all hospitals caring for Medicare patients.

The best hospitals nationwide strive for this. We need statutes and regulations passed and enforced to provide it for the less than best facilities.

Yes, thank you. First, let me say this: my post was not directed towards herring. I didn't quote her, nor was my post in response to anything she wrote. My response was directed to a post by BCgradnurse. Perhaps she will amplify her remarks, as it's possible that I've misread the intent of her post.

Yes, Chare, you did misread my intent. I stated that those who said the Right accepted his presidency without violence, etc . I did not say that everyone on the Right put up a hue and cry, and engaged in acts of violence. I was merely pointing out that these acts occurred and that those who deny them could benefit from this reminder.

Ted Nugent called Clinton "the C word" and Trump invited him to the White House. Gotta love the faux outrage, though.

We don't have to love it but we do have to point it out.

I did not vote for Obama either time and have strong feelings against his political stances, yet I had/have zero hateful feelings towards him or his family. When he was President I simply just didn't care to know what he was doing and wasn't obsessed in the least with trying to prove how bad he was as everyone does with the current President. I agree that things that have occurred like the figure of the burning person, is absolutely horrific and awful.
