Re: “Danehy

Michael Barone-

It's been a tough decade for the political left. Eight years ago a Time magazine cover portrayed Barack Obama as Franklin Roosevelt, complete with cigarette and holder and a cover line proclaiming "The New New Deal." A Newsweek cover announced "We Are All Socialists Now."

Now the cover story is different. Time has just announced, inevitably though a bit begrudgingly, that its Person of the Year for 2016 is Donald Trump. No mention of New Deals or socialism.

This is a very insightful article that really defines what the country thinks. And where we are headed.

Re: “Danehy

I too must thank Ms Stein of the Green Party for exposing the democratic election fraud in MI. Do you think we ought to check the other states where Hillary won?

Have you ever heard such talk?

"Do something to determine who's going to win" (?)

Clintons be gone with you.

Re: “Danehy

Tom, Again you embarrass yourself by ignoring the truth and repeating inane Democratic factoids.
Hillary lost by millions of votes, but tried to steal her way to the White House in a few of our largest cities the way Democrats have done for fifty years. Now Tom, read slowly and try to interpret the meaning of the failure of the Michigan (Detroit) recount attempt. Read and learn:
http://dailycaller.com/2016/12/05/half-of-… Morning&utm_campaign=TheDC Evening
They can't recount? Why? Because Election Records don't match. A million Detroit votes are lost?
The Left is exposing itself by demanding recounts in urban areas where they stole millions of votes.
Unintended consequences, Ms. Stein?

Re: “The Skinny

It's been 25 years since the gas tax has been raised. It certainly has not kept pace with inflation, meanwhile mileage has improved greatly and we have a huge pent up demand for more roads, better roads, more lanes and "wheninhell is ADOT going to fix SR whatever". To add insult to injury, our circumspect legislature has raided HURF dollars (money from the feds) to fund DPS. IMHO, we need to do two things; (1) increase the gas tax, the time has never been better, (2) pass legislation that will keep the legislators sticky fingers out of highway construction funds.
Let's quit with "No taxes at all cost mantra" and do what needs to be done.

Re: “Danehy

"This includes dumb-ass Treasury Secretary-to-be Stephen Mnuchin, who went to Yale but still says things like, "Any tax cuts for the upper class will be offset by less deductions to pay for it." Anybody who doesn't know the difference between "less" and "fewer" should demand a refund of his college tuition.


LESS

adverb, a compar. of little with least as superl.
1.
to a smaller extent, amount, or degree:
less exact.
2.
most certainly not (often preceded by much or still):
He could barely pay for his own lodging, much less for that of his friend.
3.
in any way different; other:
He is nothing less than a thief.

adjective, a compar. of little with least as superl.
4.
smaller in size, amount, degree, etc.; not so large, great, or much:
less money; less speed.
5.
lower in consideration, rank, or importance:
no less a person than the manager.
6.
fewer:
less than a dozen.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A refund from a college? Really?

Educated elitism rears it's ugly head again.

And the name calling? That's collegiate level stuff..

One person is responsible for what happened at the Pizza joint. Otherwise you could blame automakers for building a car that moves forward or backward. Or beer companies for a person blowing a .10.

Re: “The Skinny

So gas prices are our economy of scale? No taxes increased for this wasteful bunch if I can help it. Cut spending, reduce bloated pensions and fix the roads.

Hey why not rob RICO funds again? Maybe build a restaurant for all of us.

Re: “The Skinny

So let me see if I got this right...

If Huckelberry gets his way property taxes in Pima County would go down, but if a metropolitan public transit authority is created property taxes would go up, right?

For all the hype we hear about individual politicians and political bodies getting paid to make the tough decisions and navigate the ins and outs of government, how come the only solution we ever end up with is more taxes?

Re: “Gen. Michael Flynn, Conspiracy Tweeter and Trump Whisperer, Is a National Security Risk

Yes, there has been a lot of focus Trump's juvenile personality. But his and his circle's use of social media do warrant serious scrutiny, especially when a tweet can cause stock to dip or send an unhinged follower into a family restaurant to pop off a couple rounds. Could we see the first armed conflict started by a tweet? I hope we never find out. Flynn has shown himself to be unfit for duty, largely by revealing his lack of judgement through his social media posts.

Re: “The Skinny

The bus system suffers because ridership is concentrated among the poor and the young. I suggest closing city and county employee parking lots and offering discounted bus passes. Pressure school districts, the University and hospitals to follow suit and we'd transform Tucson. Time to become a city instead of a swarm of gas-guzzling roadbugs.

Re: “Betsy DeVos Set To Join the Trump Cabinet's Billionaire Boys [and Girls] Club

Usually when a troll says "Have a good day" in their posts, they know they've defeated and they have ran out of ammunition.

Yet, here you are again to bring more of your off topic nonsense to this thread.

Stop it already.

Re: “Danehy

Thanks, Tom, for this amusing and perceptive piece.

Really chuckled over this one: "Anybody who doesn't know the difference between "less" and "fewer" should demand a refund of his college tuition. Or his prep school tuition. Or retroactively fire the nanny who was raising him while his daddy was getting rich at Goldman Sachs."

Timely article. Thanks.

I'll be visiting and likely buying a special piece for a west-facing window.

Re: “Gen. Michael Flynn, Conspiracy Tweeter and Trump Whisperer, Is a National Security Risk

No one is even in office yet. Soon, it will be time for the media at all levels to quit getting all "wee-wee'd up" about Trump-Twitter rants or casual remarks and fairly and factually report day-by-day policies and legislation and government workings. Team Trump went visiting the West Wing of the White House and asked how many workers there were staying and how many were leaving. They did not know that ALL of them are leaving. Get serious.
