Comment Archives: stories: News & Opinion: Danehy

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:… 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: “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.


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

adjective, a compar. of little with least as superl.
smaller in size, amount, degree, etc.; not so large, great, or much:
less money; less speed.
lower in consideration, rank, or importance:
no less a person than the manager.
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..

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."

Re: “Danehy

There you go again Mark, annoying liberals with facts !! You realize that by attacking Obummer you now become a racist. At least in Pulitzer Tommy's eyes. Don't hate him, weep for him like I do. How would you like to look at life the way he does. ?

Re: “Danehy

The suggestion that we are better off now than before Obama took office is laughable, you did not mention the record deficit he ran up, how the unemployment figures are skewed because of the millions who have stopped receiving unemployment because it ran out and are no longer looking for work, how employed people are working 2 or 3 jobs because they are underemployed or how race relations are the worst they have been since the 60s. Yeah, Obama has been great. LOL

Re: “Danehy

Defense of Trump the Candidate can only go so far when TV cameras caught many, (not all) Trump supporters engaging in some really rabid racist, sexist behavior. Once you see a guy (from another state) wearing a T-shirt that says in big letters "She's a C-word (spelled out) Vote Trump," it is unforgettable. The first Tea Party people learned that they had to tone down on-camera loons. Now, the "winners" behind this election have some catching up to do. Trump the President has to lead now.

Re: “Danehy

This was rather appalling to read. I really dislike your opinions. Graffiti shouldn't be a problem. I think there are much bigger problems to address in Tucson. One being education. The youth of Arizona are not challenged in the classrooms and one might say that this has an effect on what the students are doing with their free time. I, as a 16-year old female high school student, feel that the government spends way too much time on the "negative" aspects of our society that will not be changed any time soon. Also, if it wants graffiti to be lessened, it would look for the root of the problem instead of taking the seemingly easy route. I am ashamed that my city, state, and country can't deal with such petty internal problems and get so caught up in them. I hope this changes soon, but it won't if the powerful don't get over themselves.

Nothing better to say

Re: “Danehy

Tom the real questions you must ask yourself are these. Did I acuse blacks of voting for Obama in 2008 because of skin color? Did I call them racist for doing it?

Re: “Danehy

Jeez Guys, can y'all read or what? The phrase, "Not all Trump supporters are racists..." means that a certain percentage (anywhere from some to most) of the people who voted for Donald Trump were NOT motivated by racism. (That's pretty much why the word "Not" is the first word in the sentence.) By falsely whining that I suggested that everyone who voted for Trump is a racist is a lame attempt at diverting attention away from the fact that, whatever excuse you might have had for voting for the person who ran the most racist Presidential campaign since George Wallace is fine, but it puts you in the same club with THEM. And it puts you in the indefensible position of having to claim that racism had nothing to do either Trump campaign or the outcome of the election. Why is it so hard to say "I voted for the same guy that a bunch of racists did, but I did so for different reasons?" I would never in a million years think that Bill Heuisler voted for Trump out of racism, but he has to acknowledge that he and the white supremacists who are spouting "Heil Trump!" on TV both voted for the same guy.

Re: “Danehy

Sorry, Tom, but Chump did NOT "win fair and square". In addition to the weakness and incompetence of the Clintonistas, here are two of the key reasons why he "won": 1) an antiquated electoral college system that was established long ago precisely for the purpose of protecting the power and privilege of wealthy white males; and 2) voter suppression that the Republinazis very effectively implemented over the last decade, which was particularly aggressive in key states such as Wisconsin.

You gotta hand it to 'em. The Rs saw the demographic writing on the wall when Obama swept to victory eight years ago (and some saw it even sooner than that). They understand full well that their agenda of economic inequality and racial and gender discrimination will make it nearly impossible for them to win national elections going forward, so they came up with a strategy to address that: aggressively suppressing the votes of young people and people of color who vote overwhelmingly for Democrats. It's a brilliant stratagem, however immoral and profoundly anti-democratic it may be.

So, I'll say the same thing I said when Dubya "won" 16 years ago: the Republinazis STOLE this election fair and square. The Dumbocrats better get real, or it's going to keep happening, again and again.

Re: “Danehy

Tom from Tucson, you've known me and others who voted for Trump for decades. Your reflexive racial slurs against me annoy more than hurt because they come from a rote-mind incapable of filtering due to life-long prejudice (probably taught in school). Look in the mirror at a closed-mind and examine your conscience. First, you have no evidence from the past 20 years that I am either racist or stupid. Second, your so-called facts ignore reality when you tout current unemployment: the Obama Administration cites an "unemployment rate" that fails to mention more than 95 million American workers (almost 1/3 of the total) who no longer seek employment. They are ignored in Obama's stats. This alone should awaken you to Government lies and manipulation. You are blind to reality because of Obama's race. You are also blind to reality because of my race. Wake up. Bill from Tucson.

Re: “Danehy

1.5 million new immigrants every year versus a historic average of 250,000. That means we're importing 5 times as many people per year as historic averages and have been for 30 or 40 years.
Wages for working class people haven't increased at all since 1970.
Republicans, Democrats, learned Economists, and Journalists have been telling America's working class that nothing can be done.
Some people connected the dots and decided maybe something could be done. That's why Trump was elected. Plain and simple.
