I wish the man Happy Holidays and get a dislike. It ain't easy being me. Grasias, ronko.
Egualamente, mi amigo.
Thank you, ronko. Happy Holidays to you.
Typically I disagree w/CW13's comments. Yet his first 6 sentences are on point. Mandela was one of the worlds great heroes and Danehy's comments today, much like the talking heads and politicians he aptly criticizes bring more attention to himself and his poor writing on the topic. Mandela's life speaks for itself and deserves to be celebrated, not pontificated. Mandela deserved better from this paper. Thanks a lot, Danehy for putting me in the position of me agreeing at least in part with my usual idealistic foe. CW13 who I tend to disagree with often speaks with good sense and respect even though I usually disagree. I do not dislike Rush and his conservative ilk for expressing their conservative ideals, it's the delivery that is annoying, arrogant and aggressive. In this column Danehy's delivery is dangerously close to those he despises.
I ask you to start by re-reading Pulitzer Tommy's opening paragraph. Decorum? Choose their words carefully? Blowhard. Super blowhard. Blind squirrel. Tea party crazies. Me thinks Tommy needs to practice what he preaches. I honestly thought that it being the Holiday season that both sides would pull back and chill for a few weeks. Guess I was wrong. There he is Mr. civil liberal, Lord of the Losers himself, Pulitzer Tommy throwing jabs, snide remarks and his usual dose of hateful, factless remarks. Talk about a phoney. I'd bet my bike that he'll be front and center at midnight mass on Christmas Eve, making sure that everyone sees him. I'd rather be homeless than be him. Well, I was going to be a good boy for a few weeks,but if you can't beat 'em, join 'em. As far as vice president Cheney goes, I'd rather be Dick than dickless.
P.S. Signed up yet, Tommy?
I'm sad to know that my child will only know of Mandela in a historical sense like George Washington or Abraham Lincoln. Apartheid was as close to slavery as could be legislated in the 20th century. For Republicans in this era to not understand this shows how far they have come from the party of Lincoln. Lincoln killed hundreds of thousands of Americans and if the south would have one would have been called a terrorists.
In dealing with the rapidly shrinking middle class in America, the proposed solutions would be:
• Democrats—Try to help poor people move up and help those currently in the middle class to at least maintain their position.
I'm in the lower middle class, and the democrats haven't lifted a finger ( except for the middle one ) to help me. They AND the Republicans ( whoever the hell is in power ) have just taxed the hell outta my ass, and blown the money on ways and means of securing their oppressive domain.
Libertarians should be in power, because at least I would be able to get high and laugh at this pathetic excuse for a government for the people by the people.
95 dislikes between me and namvet. Not a bad weeks work. Does my heart good.
How pitiful. Making fun of a young german for something done by a madman 75 years ago is much like continuing the racism and slavery towards blacks. What were you thinking?
They want their Mayberry back. Problem is, for most it never existed. It was a fantasy reserved for those with the right income and skin color. Over the years, this bubble has been getting smaller and smaller, but unfortunately stronger. It will eventually fall under it's own weight, but not without doing this nation serious harm first. They've already made us painfully aware that they'd rather see this country burn, than be wrong. It will eventually die a natural death. But some things are never dead enough.
with the abandonment of science, logic and reason in the republican and tea party platform, I find the irony in your statement(s) supremely amusing.
FACTS... a wooden stake in the heart of liberalism.
jlm713, the implication for both the Republicans and Tea Party is treason. Meanwhile the consistent comments how great the Democrats are and how bad everyone else tells the entire story of Tom's narrow-mindedness and bigotry. If Tom were to remove his head from his ass and read something other than the DNC and White House talking points, he may have a chance at making an informed statement. As with the rest of the "liberal lemmings" they are afraid to do any research because they would discover how wrong they have been for many years.
LouisWoo, you may want to read something other than the revisionists' history and look at facts, your ignorance of the FACTS is appalling.
Panties in a bunch? Another civil liberal. Hope this doesn't get your boxers in a bunch.
Dear nam6870vet, Tom did not say Tea partiers were guilty of Treason. He said that they believe a treaty with Iran would be Treason. Try reading it more carefully before you get your panties in a bunch.
nam6870vet made more sense in one comment than Pulitzer Tommy has made in years of so called columns. And already he's racking up the dislikes. That's because you leftists hate facts. Keep up the good work my friend and thank you for your service to our country. I'll bet that most of the readers have no idea what you name stands for. Guys like you make me proud to be the right-winger that I am. There's a reason we're called the RIGHT.
Tom, one final thought before I close out. If you believe the Tea Partiers are guilty of treason, maybe you should settle in with a copy of the Constitution. Once finished you will discover the only party guilty of treason is the Democratic Party and its blatant disregard for the Constitution they swore to protect, defend and uphold. The majority of Tea Partiers want us to return to the founding document rather than continue down the path to socialism. I have always found you an interesting read, even though I continue to disagree with your very narrow perspective on the world and politics in general. A man of your education and experience should be better rounded in you opinions. Just because a conservative says something, doesn't make it wrong and the same goes the other way, just because a liberal says something doesn't make them correct. Reality is both sides have their agendas and are fairly much in lockstep. We need some thinkers and folks who will represent their constituents rather than the lobbyists and donors. I became an Independent voter because both major parties continue to say one thing and do another. The Tea Party representatives went to DC to return us to the Constitution and became entrapped in the same political jungle that has existed for longer than either of us can remember. When your fair haired folks, Obama, Pelosi and Reid, publically state over and over again that they will not negotiate or compromise, they become the obstructionists.
CW13, I don't let the narrow minded bother me too much. I used to be that way. I had a mentor tell me in order to broaden my mind and see different sides of subjects, I should read, specifically the books folks told me not to read. I found by reading a wide variety of material, liberal, conservative and everything I could get my hands in, I learned to tell the difference between what folks want you to believe and the facts.
One of my favorite quotes came from a very strong Democrat, D.P. Moynihan "You're entitled o your own opinion, but not your own facts."
It is very sad so many of his own party cannot grasp the logic and simplicity of the statement.
Master race !!?? Very civil,Tommy. Very civil. Nam6870vet, don't let the thumbs downs get to you. You're talking to the heavy weight champ of dislikes. Consider it an honor that you're annoying these clueless liberals. Buffalo bagels?
Signed up yet, Tommy ?
Nam6870vet: Buffalo bagels. In 1980, Reagan and his cronies simply did away with an economic system that had served us well, and was responsible for all the greatness we had thus far laid claim to, and replaced it with a pyramid scheme. They knew the enormity of what they had done. They knew it wasn't sustainable. They didn't care. They still don't. He who dies with the most wins, right? Now the 1% feeds us table scraps, and tells us we'd be better served by making sure they get better meals. And Tom, things like the "master race" remark are the reason people came up with the term "ugly American".
