At least you're beginning to wise up. I notice you have no challenge to any points I made. It must suck to be you.

Brilliantly and cogently argued, Mr. 13 Sir. Once again you've demonstrated that in the Arena of Ideas you have no equal.

Re: “Danehy

Me? A ball breaker? Yeah you got me there. For what it's worth Trump wasn't my first choice. Scott Walker was. What annoys me about Trump is that no one is willing give him a chance. If he blows it I'll be the first to bitch. Let's look at a few of his policies. Cracking on Illegal immigrants. I repeat illegal. Why should someone who snuck into the country be allowed to cut the line. We should have Mexico's immigration laws. Google them. They're a Hell of a lot stricter than ours.
A stronger military. Anybody who thinks our world isn't dangerous is dreaming.
Cutting back on wasteful spending. I'm for that.
Obama give us a list of 7 countries that are hot beds of terrorism. Trump wants a temporary ban on immigrants from those countries until we can figure out how to better vet them. Is that so bad?
Face it, Trump is fighting with Republicans as much as the Dems. I'm firmly convinced if Trump found a cure for cancer, tomorrows headlines would read "Trump puts thousands of oncologists out of work."

Re: “Danehy

Sorry, CW13. That's just one of my biggest current pet peeves. Mr. Trump absolutely won the presidency fair and square, but not in a way that justifies some of the rhetoric I hear from the right. Phrases like "Americans have spoken," "the voice of the people has been heard," and (worst of all) "a majority of voters" are inaccurate. My town recently held a sparsely attended anti-Trump rally. A counter-protesting Trump supporter said exactly this:

I just think its really, really sad that they dont see that the majority of America has come down and said, We are no longer accepting these policies. This isnt working for America. "

No. A majority of Americans who chose to vote agreed with the protesters that man was countering. Americans were given the choice of continuing on a certain course and the majority of voters chose that course (even in spite of a flawed candidate) over the person and policies of Donald Trump.

What's "really, really sad" to me is that people like the man quoted above cannot see the difference.

Plus, "breaking balls" seems to be your thing. I thought you'd be pleased.

Re: “Danehy

Like most of the states, maybe. Not "most of the country." I'm not a numbers guy, but if "most of the country" cast votes similar to Pennsylvanians, President Trump would probably have gotten more than 46% of the vote.

Re: “Danehy

When there's so many places to stuff your face with Philly cheesesteaks, are you kidding?
57% of Pennsylvanians lost their minds? More like 57% were sick of Washington and voted accordingly. Just like most of the country. Sore loser.

CW13, "Obummer"? Seriously? Are you three years old? If you hate Danehy so much, why do you read him as if your religion requires it? Do you have no life?

Thanks for another Trump rant, I wonder how stupid he would think you are, but then he has more important things to do than worry about some nobody's opinion.

As for me, no way could I become a Republican, because if I did, I'd have to give up living these compassionate words of Jesus from the Book of Matthew:

For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me."

Re: “Danehy

What Danehy, like the American media, said about Villa is quite the opposite of what he was portrayed. Danehy is simply upset or angry that the statue of a Mexican revolution leader was erected in Tucson. While it has been over 20 years since I read into Villa, Villa did not go into "banditry" just because. There are conflicting sources that stated that Villa, the oldest of 5 children and who was a teenager at that time, shot the landowner who either "attempted to rape" or "raped" his younger sister. After killing him, Villa knew that the law would pursue him so he escaped into the mountains and the only way he could make money for room and board was to steal livestock. He would have been caught if he got a job so he kept a low profile until he changed his name from Doroteo Arango to Francisco "Pancho" Villa.

Fast forward, it was Abraham Gonzalez, a provisional and constitutional governor of Chihuahua, befriended Villa before the outbreak of the Mexican Revolution. It was Gonzalez who saw the leadership potential in Villa and persuaded him to join in the revolution-Villa accepted and quickly climbed up the ranks until he became a general.

To put him in positive light:
1. Villa prohibited liquors and did not allow his soldiers, the Villistas, to become drunk. Anyone caught drunk is shot because drunk soldiers are dead soldiers when it comes to battle.
2. Villa is literate despite what the media alleged. There are evidences of Villa's signatures. The fact is that since he can read/write, he knows that he is not well educated so he values education.
3. Villa help the poor by fighting the rich and corrupted politicians' soldiers.
4. Villa believes in giving people chances between life and death. Even the captured enemy soldiers are given chance to switch to Villa's side or face execution before putting them to death.
5. Villa did not rape girls or women. The fact is he is a womanizer and had many wives (I can't remember how many).
6. Villa instructed his soldiers to not take anything without talking to the rich owners first--if the owners don't support Villa's cause-he gives the owners to give up their wealth or be taken away by force. If owner resists, it means death sentence. Some did not resist and their lives are spared. There is one article where the owner resisted and he was shot to death.
7. Villa buys guns, rifles, cannons, and food for his soldiers with what was taken from the wealthy.
8. Villa buys food and is distributed to the poorest people.
9. Villa funded some schools so the children can have education that Villa didn't have.
10. Villa worked for ASARCO in El Paso where he lived briefly.
11. Villa was an exemplary leader that the people wanted him to be the President of Mexico, but Villa refused by saying that he was not well educated and not qualified to be President. At least, he was honest about it.
12. Villa was, indeed, a governor of Chihuahua from 1913-1914 (his leadership proves it).
13. Villa, despite what Danehy claimed about being a "crappy leader", outsmarted the U.S. military during the Punitive Expedition in 1913. Over 5,000 soldiers were pursuing him, but Villa disappeared without trace.
14. Villa's battle tactics were admired so much by the U.S. military that it was closely studied and also taught at the West Point Academy (U.S. Military Academy).

Danehy is a liar, just like Trump, and a crappy writer. Humph.
