  2. 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.

    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.

    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.

    I am reminded of how many Trump supporters wear tshirts with the same word printed on them that Trump supporters are now horrified to hear spoken out loud. Anti Hillary Clinton **** Shirt | Funny Stuff (Irreverent Humor) | Pinterest | Anti hillary and Products

    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.

    I try not to say "everyone" does anything because each person is different.
    Our wonderful neighbor and friend, who voted for President Trump, didn't insult President Obama either.

    I don't think wanting the EPA to protect the environment for us all is insulting or hateful.
    I don't think it hateful to not want my tax money paying to take children from their parents.

    I do think it OK to continue my work across four decades for an American health care system for everyone to get needed care. (Like most of the advanced countries). I think the dishonesty of some politicians doing all they can to take away peoples health care without replacing the ACA with anything is not good for our country.

    I do cringe when President Trump insults leaders of countries that have historically helped us, when he praises dictators, when he insults heroes like Senator McCain, and Gold Star parents.
    (My grandmother didn't become a citizen until after her son was killed in WWII and buried in Italy. He was an immigrant brought to the USA at age ten. My Dad, his brother, became a citizen while serving in the Army Air Force during WWII.)

    I think it would be nice to have a president young children could emulate. But name calling, blatent racism, and mean dishones talk, making promises and then changing his mind, and such are not behaviors I want children to learn from or admire.
