Re: “Danehy

See what ? Never mind. Manuel, I guess your remarks are aimed at what I had to say. Let me start by correcting you. I'm getting pretty good at this around here. I am NOT a Republician. I'm a regestered Independent. I probably have more axes to grind with the G.O.P. than you do. As far as me being a conservative and retired, at least you got somethings right. If never having to work again at age 54 makes me a dimbulb, I wish I was a cronic dimbulb. That way I could have packed it in at age 50. You're obviously upset with me for playing the revisionist card. whatever that is. Most of what you had to say is from things in the past. I notice you could not offer us one ecomonic plan that Obummer has had to offer. Well, at least you had the cajones to respond. Nice try Tom, nice try Manuel.

Re: “Danehy

Ah yes... nice to the cabal of unemployed and retired conservative dim bulbs who regularly comment on Tom's columns are still going for the revisionist card... as if Lincoln and T.R. (heck even Ike) would be welcome in the modern GOTP. It's a delicious irony that a party which came into being as a reaction to the navtism, fear and bigotry of the Whigs is itself descending into irrelevance because it has embraced what it once despised. Enjoy your RINO hunts ladies... it's you who'll be extinct.

Re: “Danehy

To the gutless wonder who hit dislike on my origional comment. What's to dislike? The fact that I'm right? Show me where I'm wrong. The 14th Amendment? The Civil Right Act issue? Democrat Senator Robert Byrd being a Klan member? Maybe you can explain to us all of your president's brillant economic plans. No, you just hit dislike and hide behind Mommy's apron strings.

Re: “Danehy

You got that right. Facts. Liberal Kryptonite. Actually, I enjoy Tom's Pulitzer quality columns along with all the other liberal jibberish that appears in the Weekly. Kinda reassures me how right we on the right really are.

Re: “Danehy

CW13 Don't confuse Tom with facts!! LOL He does not understand it.
Maybe the new owners of the Weekly will actually read these columns and put an end to our misery.

Re: “Danehy

Tom,Tom,Tom. I'm actually embarrassed for you. Where were you when you were supposed to be in class during your High School days? Hanging out at Al's with Richie and the Fonz?
Let's start with your " knowledge" of how Washington works. It's a term called bulletproof. That's when the same party in the White House also has a majority in the Senate and the House. Your president had that for 2 years and couldn't do a thing. He got his stimulas package passed. The one with all the shovel ready jobs. The one that prompted Joe Biden to declare the Summer of recovery. The same Joe Biden who couldn't get arrested if you gave him a brick and a police station window to throw it through. All your Pres. did was give alot of that money to his union pals so they could kick it back to him in campaign donations. So, tell us Tom. Tell us all these great economic plans the Grerat One had. This stooge never ran so much as a lemonade stand. Give him an ice water stand in Tucson in July and he'd be bankrupt by August.
As far as your moronic comment about Republicans being racists. Check your history. 3 years after the end of the Civil War the Senate debated the 14th Amendment which would grant blacks citizenship. 94 % of all Republicians voted yes. Not 1 Democrat did. In 1957 Republican Pres. Eisenhower sent the 87th Airborne to desegregate Little Rock, Ark. This despite the strong objections of Democrat Governer Faubus . In 1960 Ike signed the G.O.P.'s Civil Rights Act despite a 5 day filibuster by 18 Senate Dems. In 1964 Dem. President Johnson signed the second Civil Rights Act despite a 14 hour filibuster by Dem. Sen. and former Klansman Robert Byrd. It also survived an attempt by 22 Senate Dems including Al Gore Sr. to scuttle it.
Nice try, Tom.

Re: “Danehy

Just when Tom has had a thoughtful entertaining series of articles I enjoyed, he comes through with his usual liberal dogmatic BS that reminds me what a Dumb$#% he actually is. OH, I stooped to name calling, well, I want to be just like Tom LOL

Re: “Danehy

The only thing missing from this column was an old school rim shot after every bullet. If you know anything about Columbia and it's history of land grabs, you would not bat an eye at the 50th anniversary of FARC. It's simply the same as it ever was (water flowing underground).

Tom is not better than Gwyneth, only different.

Billboard's pop chart was relevant in the 20th century, but not in this century. Kinda like book reviews used to be relevant, when buying a book and reading it was the only way people experienced books.

Add the obligatory rim shot after every sentence.

Re: “Danehy

No, its Republicans.

Only someone who has been duped out of expecting services in return for taxes could be convinced otherwise. But once you've crossed that rubicon, all manner of foolish self delusion is possible.

Re: “Danehy

We get it, Tom, your first instinct is to blame republicans. One sign of civilized mortals is their ability to suppress their first instincts. You should try it. For the past 6 years, incidentally, 'NO' has for the first time been the only positive choice. 'NO' has at least postponed the collapse, if only a bit.

Re: “The Cost of Clicks

My comment got cut! I did use one bad word. Sorry for that. Although I have seen that word used in this publication in the past. If that is why I got cut let me know and I will repost without the word.

Re: “The Cost of Clicks

Maybe the folks at Lee's home office would consider putting advertising on their website, much as they do in the print version of the ADS. Of course, that is why the Star keeps shrinking..no advertising.
If there was more writing stories of local interest, some investigative work, (much like the Weekly does!) the advertisers might return. Get LOCAL and cut back on the out-of-state packages the Star frequently runs. That might require hiring a staff of qualified reporters, and not continuing the firing of good newshounds.

Re: “Danehy

Only problem Tommis that the republicans didn't have the house for the first two years of the Obama administration, the dems did. Didn't matter, they are all bad in my book.

Re: “Serraglio

I had never heard of Matt Caron before, but I wish this whole article came with a "like" button. Not only was it vivid and well written, but now I want to check out that book on lizards of the Southwest.

Re: “Danehy

Please explain how knowing a posters real name would make the comment any more or less relevant?

Perhaps the actual name of the commenter Danehick Sux would somehow make his idiotic screen name and opinions even more relevant?
