1. We haven't had this many people unemployed, in these proportions, since 1977.
2. We haven't had this many people in part time low paying jobs.
2. Blacks have born the brunt of it. Unemployment among 15 to 24 yr old Blacks is 88%. Only 12% have jobs. Those that do, have primarily part time jobs.
3. As the probability of Obama becoming president rose to 100%, the stock market collapsed by 5 trillion.
4. As the probability of Trump becoming president rose to 100%, the stock market went up by 5 trillion.
5. The billionaire friends of Obam: Bezos, Zuckerberg and Buffett the ones who create jobs for rich people, don't pay taxes, not a penny on the billions they've made.
6. The people who create jobs for poor people, Republican small businesses, pay taxes at 63%.
7. From 2011 to 2015, test scores in 8th grade math went down for the first time ever. Reading scores did not improve.
We can do better, much better for the poor and minorities of this country.
If you want to look at a bigot and a racist, go look in a mirror.
Door. Ass. Kick. Don't let.
You honestly believe that all Trump supporters are racists? You're a very sick man whom I honestly feel sorry for. I hope your fan club gets in as many dislikes as possible because I'm done with dealing with a man who needs professional help. Allow me to leave you with this.
PRESIDENT DONALD J.TRUMP!!!! Deal with it.
You really believe that Trump supporters are racists. ? You are a very sick man whom I honestly feel sorry for. I'm done.
Good luck. Many in the media will have to find an honest profession. Maybe the legal field next? LOL.
Over 4M claimed they decided not to vote for Trump as the media convinced them he could not possibly win. Rigged? You betcha. Electoral College worked perfectly as the founders did not want a few over populated states to rule the country.
Any other talk is just sour grapes. Democrats tried to exploit sexism to get Hillary elected. Obamanomics was on trial and it wasnt acceptable.
Actually it was that darn sheep dog and the Coyote. Fight like hell and have lunch together. God I miss the old cartoons....V
Tom, God knows we don't share compliments very often, but the Bobby Chacon column was great.
If you remember, I was raised in the L.A. Harbor area. I used to love Ernie "Indian Red" Lopez
in the early 70's and he fought constantly like Chacon did.
Google him and I think you will find it quite eerie how his dementia story and early death are so similar to B.C.
I went back and read your column on marijuana legalization and how poorly written the bill was and you turned out to be a bit of a prophet. Okay, that's two atta-boys. That should be enough for a couple of more years. Kind of like Fog Horn Leg Horn and the Coyote I guess. Time to get back to work not seeing eye to eye.
I won't dog you on the election. I remember what the Obama gut punches felt like on my end.
Do me a favor though and don't start the attacks until after he is sworn in.
Prayers for Emil also.
What an amazing piece!
" so it could also have been just some generic white dude." ?
Nice nod to a tremendous man and the impact he had on the music we love. Thanks.
Phil owned a building on Broadway and kept an office there. In the 1980s, my husband worked for a company that rented the rest of the building. Phil and my husband hit it off, maybe because they were both from Chicago, and used to regularly to go lunch together.
It was really cool to visit with Phil in his office and see all his gold and platinum records on the wall. We never thought we would run into such Chicago music history in Tucson!
You playing tennis!!?? I'd pay to see that!
I think I get it here: irony happens when the Republican "base" is so angry, so shortsighted, so backward, and quite simply so damn dumb that they vote in the primaries for the ONLY person that will most disadvantageously lose to Hillary Clinton. With the possible exception of T Cruz, I think ANY one of the other guys had bona fides enough to win the general election this year. Trump may be rich (on paper), but he is so lacking in integrity that the ball won't bounce his way - ever again.
Hillary Clinton is the most prepared, qualified person for president in a long, long time. She's not perfect-- who is? Everyone running for anything has a few skeletons in the closet.
Shouldn't that be "Chauncey Gardner"?
I find myself nodding, nearly in agreement, with Danehy. He appears to recognize that Clinton is a seriously deeply flawed candidate who has earned the distrust of a majority of voters. And I can't argue with anyone who sees Trump, not the Republicans or conservatives in general, as a bombastic fool, an indictment of our system of selecting presidential candidates.
"People who want viable third-party candidates should come up with viable third parties." Really? We obviously do not have viable political parties (unless the term refers to sharks and cockroaches). We have two inbred mega-organizations representing the political interests of minorities of voters surviving on the largesse of the most wealthy and powerful.
How about viable (like adaptable and strong) Democrat and Republican parties as a first step? I've been around long enough to say I've never seen a presidential election offering two choices, one worse than the other, to slither from the pit and take the reins of power.
And lousy presidents.
Come on everybody take a look at today's leak John Podesta and the HRC crew were discussing how to get rid of the President's emails on her private server. He said he never was involved and didn't know anything about it. He had the address and they talked about hiding them...and then 33,000 emails were bleach bitted.
This makes it appear the President lied again. he also told us he had to give Iran cash as we were not setup to wire transfer money. Now we find out he wire transferred money.
Meanwhile Iran makes aggressive moves towards our destroyers in the Gulf. Raytheon missiles were fired on Wednesday.
Barack and Hillary. Birds of a feather, make great liars.
"People who want viable third-party candidates should come up with viable third parties."
Otherwise we are voting for the most deceptive Clinton yet? That makes no sense.
The country was in trouble any way? What a campaign theme.
