And you base this on what?

Re: “Danehy

Reality Star

One person's gullibility is another's desperation. For those without work, or working multiple jobs to barely make ends meet or barely making ends meet on a salary that hasn't increased in fifteen years Trump's message might be seen as at least acknowledging their pain. Demeaning them is, as we've seen, a fool's choice - Hillary's Deplorables made the only case available to them .

Desperate times often call for desperate measures - Trump's victory should be understood as a Hail Mary pass by a large segment of the working population with nothing left to lose.

I think it's you who needs a reality check.

Re: “Danehy

And lots of gullible voters bought the horse hockey shoveled by Trump. To those people in Youngstown or Saginaw or Ironwood or Storm Lake, if you believe a draft dodging New York real estate speculator, "reality show" host gives two $hits about your job or your Medicare, or closed factory, you are living in La La Land.

Re: “Danehy

Danehy gets it right: Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election in the Electoral College despite winning the popular vote decisively. Glad to hear Danehy, apparently now a recovering Democrat, concede defeat without pointing fingers, making excuses and hoping for, mirabile dictu, a magic reversal in the EC.

The reasons for the Clinton loss are less mysterious than her apologists admit: the voters weren't buying very old wine in a shapeshifting new plastic bottle. The tone deaf DNC refused to accept the fact that voter "distrust" of Clinton was actually a tepid description of the real issue, many voters actually despised her - and not because of "30 years of attacks" by the far right. The Democrats became lost in the weeds an assuming they could hold on to the coalition of 2008 and 2012 Obama supporters while continuing to neglect the workers - remember them? - who once formed the backbone of the party.

Anyone not blinded by party-sanship should have recognized the incredible, boisterous enthusiasm expressed in the Sanders and Trump rallies meant something really important; that professional politicians are as esteemed as Tom's chicken rapists. In the end, the shocking spectacle was the Democratic Party imploding while the Republicans formed a national conga line and danced in the streets. Maybe the new Democratic leader, 76 year old millionaire Nancy Pelosi will come to the rescue. And maybe pigs will be spotted flying over the dome of the county courthouse.

Re: “What Are They Smoking?

As indicated in the article, the "movement" also has much to do with decades of past injustices and millions of prosecutions with confiscation of property and ruining of lives without conscience. It used to be much worse than it is now, but mean spirited intolerance, Concerned Mom, is still a bigger problem in this country than people who prefer marijuana.

Re: “The Skinny

And the COT is funding it with 27% of pay additional per year to the fund because of losses dating back to 2013. Find another employer that would contribute that much to a retirement account.

Only for public "servants."

Re: “Phoenix Union High School District Makes a Statement

That is not at all what they said. Safier posted that they would stand behind them regardless of a change in law. So they are teaching them to ignore laws tgat they dont agree with.

You can't pick and choose the laws you like, even if you watched Bill and Hillary do it for most of their lives. Letting them, has emboldened many of you to support lawlessness.

Stop it.

Re: “Phoenix Union High School District Makes a Statement

All this disagreement seems pretty intense to me.

Is it possible that we are ABLE TO DISAGREE because we have assumed some rights to do so in our country?

Does that mean they can NOT BE abridged, or taken away? But THAT is off the subject. The subject seems to be that someone has had the gumption to stand up and say that each and every human life is IMPORTANT and deserving of preservation and encouragement to achieve as fully as possible !

That is such a contrary view that it makes some feel threatened and afraid !

I wonder WHY?

Debbie L. Police and Fire are covered by the Public Safety Personnel Retirement System. Its a state wide plan and is run by the State-not the City. So, no, that is not exactly what Tucson is doing.

Re: “Danehy

It reads like Breitbart has taken something away from those that consider themselves mainstream. Or did their favoritism and agenda driven laziness cause them to give it away?

Bot four fraudulent votes in the country? Please you are embarrasing yourself. Give the judge in Detroit a call.

Let's also consider that competition makes everyone better. Why hasnt it worked the the msm?

Re: “Phoenix Union High School District Makes a Statement

What will Phoenix Union graduates, and other high school graduates, face in their lives after high school?

In a country where the cost of higher education used to be affordable, 300% less 30 years ago than what it is now, costs of college degrees and professional degrees are now sky-high and our children are being asked to mortgage their futures to an extortionate banking system in order to get the degrees that will qualify them to work 60-70-hour a week for forty years or more in professional occupations, where many of them will spend the first 30 years of their careers paying down tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars of undismissable student loan debt.

There's a lot of analysis and reporting that needs to be done in the current context, for those who care about getting American legal, economic, and educational systems better aligned with what is JUST. And it's getting to the point where it's not just about what's "just" -- it's about what is functional and sustainable. Sectors that are now barely functional, given the strain they're under, are beginning to break down.

Bitching about Trump's tweets and attending "we're all in this together" safety pin rallies won't get the work that needs to be done, done. Nor will getting lost in Panglossian myths of American exceptionalism get it done.

Even more depressing than where we are as a nation is what people on both sides of the aisle are choosing to say about where we are. The BS we have to listen to in the 24/7 R and D affiliated media circuses bears very little relation to the dangers we actually face.

Re: “Danehy

Tom, ignorance is an excuse we cognoscenti often allow you, but smearing Breitbart et al borders on blasphemy of the lowest kind. Breitbart was Jewish, you know, and you risk charges of Anti-Semitism from the easily offended. My percentages, numbers and even assumptions about Philadelphia in 2008 and 2012 are well-documented, but hastily excused as mistakes and double-counting by the Enquirer in Philly. There is even a well documented prosecution of the Black Panther poll-thugs. Why did you avoid mentioning the successful but fruitless suit against Pima County's billion-dollar fraud called RTA where Election officials admitted using software that "flipped" dozens of Precincts and stole thousands of votes that were opposed to the massive Transportation Authority boondoggle? When you prate about documented vote-fraud in the 2016 election you obviously are unaware that these things take time. Are you ashamed of yourself, or just teasing the pitch-fork hoi polloi?

Tom, quit feeding the trolls!

Those savage beasts may rise above your wrist while you're doing so and remove your hand!

At the very least, Bill Heuisler may threaten you by mentioning that "you better hope that the two of you don't meet in public".

Ask Ron Barber about that threat.
