Re: “Why They Keep Fighting: Richmond Protesters Explain Their Resistance to Trump's America

Hmmm, seems there's no shortage of trumpanzees in Richmond, by the tone of most of these comments. It's funny, your boy won, albeit with less than a popular majority of the vote and with the help of an archaic convoluted Constitutional mechanism designed to protect slave-holding states' representation in Congress, and yet you're all still so pissed off about everything. Protesting injustice and discrimination in this country is as American as apple pie, and goes all the way back to its founding, for those of you who were too busy throwing spitballs in history class. Protesting never accomplished a thing, you say? If that were the case, your cushy 8 hour a day, 5 days a week jobs you all are so proud of wouldn't exist. Here's what's never accomplished a thing; phony flag-waving, cross -clutching, dollar-worshipping patriotic bluster. I'll take what these folks are trying to do any day of the week over that.

Re: “Rallying Point: Richmonders Travel to Washington For the Biggest Protest in U.S. History

It wasn't a deflection, it was a test to see if you would recognize bias on both sides. You clearly called out this paper for it's left-leaning tendencies by ignoring the inauguration and playing up the protest marches the day after. Fair enough. But I sense defensiveness in your comment when I brought up a media outlet that clearly caters to the right. Look, we're all biased in our own ways, and to claim otherwise is disingenuous. Anyway, here's hoping you find a news outlet that gives you your news straight down the middle, with no unveiled bias. Cheers.

Ok Ellan, I'm with you as long as Fox News drops its "news" as well. At least Style doesn't pretend to be "fair and balanced."

Re: “Rallying Point: Richmonders Travel to Washington For the Biggest Protest in U.S. History

Funny reading the comments coming from the right-wingers in this crowd. I remember 8 years ago a bunch of screaming white people marching with tea-bags hanging off their hats and carrying signs that were, shall say we say, less than complimentary of the new president. But I guess that was ok because these were the real patriots, defending god and country from the socialist horde that had actually been elected with a popular majority of the vote. Never ceases to amaze, how right-wing conservatives can dish it out all day long, but melt like snowflakes in April when it comes back to them from the other side.

Re: “Stoney’s Chief Approved Controversial Severances For Departing Richmond Officials

This is ridiculous, but typical. Up here in Bellevue, sidewalks and street gutters damaged by the June 16 storm remain unrepaired. We've been told there's a 5 year backlog at DPW. Many side streets within the neighborhood are crumbling, with potholes. And Jones' press flack Tammy Hawley waltzes out of City Hall with a big fat "severance" check. I'm sure she deserves every penny of it.

Re: “Virginia Officials Say Trump Voter Fraud Claim Is Baseless

Typical alt-reality comments from RVA trumpeters. Liz and Bosley apparently wouldn't recognize an unbiased, factual news story if it hit them between the eyes. What's the problem, guys, this article not kissing the backside of your Dear Leader, or is it that you can't take it when Dear Leader spews yet another lie and gets called out on it? Your boy trump is a serial liar, a con man and a national disgrace to this country and the office of President. Blaming the media for reporting that is lame and pathetic. But that's ok, you've got your own little Joseph Goebbels in the White House now, and when you've had enough of what most of us out here regard as fact, you can always fire up Breitbart and get the "real" scoop.

Re: “Opinion: Sorry "Pet Parents," But Your Animals Are Not Your Children

Wow! As of this posting, Pet Parents 5, Jeff Katz 0. Such outrage, so much emotion! Come on, people, lighten up. I disagree with JK on almost everything that comes out of his mouth, but then I chalk a lot of it up to his job; professional bomb-thrower, or in this case, cherry-bomb thrower. Mr. Katz is just stirring up the pot to get responses like any good radio jockey, which apparently he's quite good at. Underneath it all, his point has validity. We humans are great at excess, and no less so than when it comes to our animals. Anyway, love your pets more than your kids, if that's what makes you happy, but please leave the name-calling to The Amazing Orange-Haired Goon currently running for president.
