Re: “Ask a Mexican!

This column/writer cracks me up. Always a grain of truth, but a little risque for our seniors! Keep it up, amigo.

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: “7 Ways to Have a Better Day

If I have extra, and I spot a serviceman or servicewoman in line at Frost, Albertson's or wherever, I like to pay their bill. The people who are in our service in the U.S. aren't exactly getting a good salary/wage. Thank them by picking up the check and pay it forward.

Re: “Do You Know This Idiot?

Children, children--keep the slams under wraps. We don't want to be like Breitbart News, do we? You fight discrimination and hate and hate crimes in "a peaceful way, but you have to keep at it." More flies with honey, etc. Question authority always...it's our right.

Re: “The Skinny

And you're so compassionate about being a heartless and racist bully.

Would your savior do that?

I don't think so, phony Christian doucheness.

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.

Liberals are so 'compassionate', with other people's money.

Re: “The Skinny

Republicans were born without the part of the brain that gives most humans the emotions of compassion and empathy. That's why it's so easy for them to deny the less fortunate any support with financial and health struggles. The only time you will see those slithering Republican conservative reptiles shed a tear from their dead unblinking eyes is when their wealthy bankers and CEO's lose millions of dollars through the markets or from being sent to prison for stealing and scamming unsuspecting investors. Too bad they don't have forked flickering tongues and patterned skin so we could easily identify them and eradicate them before they multiply.

Re: “Fund to Help Islamic Center is Real Deal

Marty Johnston is quirky, to say the least. He harassed my campaign for school board member at length for anti-Semitism because of my pro-Palestinian activism, then denigrated those who rose to my defense. But I've got to hand this one to him--GREAT IDEA MARTY AND STEPHANIE--the best way to resist is to NOT be dragged down into the mud with the people who are demonizing both of these faiths. I will be donating, hope everyone who reads this will be too.

Re: “The Skinny

And the ignoramus shows up.

Remember to ask yourself --- WWJD?

Do true Christians give a crap about compassion?

You Betcha!

And that is exactly why you don't.

Re: “The Skinny

If you are sick and getting care isn't worth you paying for yourself, it sure isn't worth me paying it for you.

And that crap about compassion - anyone who truly can't afford to pay themselves is eligible already for Medicaid.

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?
