Re: “Danehy

Democrats need votes from progressives, liberals and moderates. In fact, Democrats need most of the moderate votes in red and purple states if they are going to have any chance of winning even a simple majority in the Senatethere are far too few progressives and liberals in too many Western, Plain, and Southern states. Going too far to the left on too many controversial issues will hurt our Presidential candidate and our Senatorial candidates.

Would the writers of the Copnstitution have worded the second amendment in the exact same way had they had a glimpse of 21st century America?

Why do so many Trumpsters read Tom's articles every, single week?

Re: “Danehy

Yes, Tom advises, just shut up and hand off the ball to Biden for the buzzer-beater. Biden is, after all, the most electable of the candidates with a rich history of keen judgment and invaluable experience.

What could possibly go wrong with a mid-septuagenarian who voted in favor of invading Iraq (while 150 of his fellow party members said no), badgered Anita Hill, takes credit for authoring a crime bill establishing a school-to-private prison pipeline, served as the eager handmaiden to Wall Street and the corporations licensed in his home state, referred to Obama as "clean and articulate" and has spent the last couple of years earning millions for his insights in speeches to anyone with the money to burn on his becoming president?

So shut up you young whippersnappers with all this talk about social and economic equality and taking boots off the necks off younger generations hobbled by debt and struggling in the gig economy. Uncle Joe has the plans - he borrowed them from Hillary.

Re: “Danehy

You neglected this charming quote by Reagan's Secretary of the Interior James Watt mocking affirmative action:

"I have a black, a woman, two Jews and a cripple. And we have talent."

Re: “Danehy

Funny how many people that claim to hate Danehy manage to read his editorial every week. I say, very well said sir.
One question I have for these people that cry about their guns being taken away. Who? Who is going to take away your guns? Never had anyone tell me who is going to show up at their door and take them away.

Re: “Danehy

Trump should be impeached or maded to resign. What's happening to our people that we elected to allow his agenda to go through? What madness is this?
He acts, talks, trying to implement laws like Hitler, almost a copycat, so we are just going to sit and do nothing? Well that's what Germany did for Hitler! Got to do something but twiddle our thumbs!

Re: “Danehy

I hope this changes, its sad that this is happening especially in America where we are yearning to be an example for all nations but some people use ignorance instead.

God bless us all no matter what happens, color or races should never come up at all, good always wins!! Stop discrimination, hatred, and care about your fellow man, your neighbors!
Thank you, Anna

Re: “Danehy

Gretchen, Your presidential and your senate candidates need votes from folks like me, an independent. Progressive on social issues and conservative on fiscal policy, I will vote for virtually any Democrat in every race on the ballot I receive. This will be a first for me, I have never voted a straight ticket in over 50 years. Trump is, in my eyes, toxic and a clear and present danger to this country.

But please, enough of this we have to steer a non-controversial course considering universal healthcare, relief to students while they are in college and for the rest of their lives and who will never be able to shed the debt incurred by attending over-priced and under-performing colleges and universities, and a battle to save the planet from pollution and climate change, far-left positions.

Putting an end to endless wars that benefit none of us and offering sound and forceful legislation to end the carnage in our streets, schools, theaters, and malls, are not extreme positions. Protecting the lives of and careers of women and the right to seek sanctuary as asylum seekers are not leftist positions. If your party wants the votes of millennials (and younger), minorities, progressives, and women, think hard about who will be your party's standard-bearer. There is no dearth of candidates.

We are in a political war, Gretchen (and Tom), your weak and rudderless political party needs all the help it can get. But really, your party needs to stand for something other than elections every two or four years. If your party nominates Joe Biden or another centrist with no spine, your party will lose again. And another loss to Donald Trump effectively ends any claim your party has to be a viable political organization.

Re: “Danehy

If Trump said, "Voting for me will cause your wife to have bigger breasts" 20 million Trump supporters would run out and buy their wives bigger bras.

Re: “Danehy

Agree with all Tom lays out here. My only question to him, as a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat, is when, precisely, is enough, enough? My guess is, when, as Pelosi&Co. seems to believe, they are swept back into power after the next elections. The odds of that magical moment are - at best -50-50.

Meek and mild in the face of an existential threat is not a strategy, it is cowardice and neglect of duty.
Impeach now.

Re: “Danehy

Please Donald Trump , will you please continue to demonize people with tan or dark skin. I want you to do it every day so that by the time the elections roll around the Hispanic/Latino and Black voters will hate you and the Republicans so much that you wont get one vote from that demographic and the Republicans, including Moscow Mitch will be given the boot. MItch I heard that Putin was looking for a 1st class Bull--iter 'as a spokesperson and you would be perfect for that position.

Re: “Danehy

Im sad that Green Fields is closed and hope that one of the wealthy alumni can step up and buy/save the school. I graduated in 1974 and although Ive lost touch with my classmates Im sure that this should have been averted but cynic that I am I wonder who is going to turn the property into a resort or will it become a new housing development? I hope that the property isnt sold for pennies on the dollar and a trustee or board member doesnt make a killing but in this day and time its tough not to think that.

Re: “Danehy

Another ignorant and unfocused anti-Trump and anti-gun screed for the masses. What about the Bernie fan that shot up the Republicans at the softball game. Was it all of Bernie's hate speech that caused it? And the guy in Dayton was an Elizabeth Warren fan. What about all of the mass shootings during the Obama presidency? Was it Obama's divisive and racist rhetoric? Your argument is full of holes.
Also the British infantry of the Revolutionary era could load a musket in 20 seconds and fire with deadly accuracy at 50-100 yards. At least get your facts straight.

Re: “Danehy

"There is very little for Trump supporters to cheer about" - other than

the best economy in decades
record low unemployment, especially minorities
we are at peace
the first decent pay increases for the working class in 30 years
Crazy Koch-brothers-financed mass-immigration policies finally getting the attention they deserve
Opiate crisis being addressed
Landmark criminal justice reform passed (stuff Dems have rightly supported for years)
Unfair China trade policies finally being looked at
Stock market at record highs

Other than that, not much good, I agree. My party has left me. Questioning how I can vote for any Democrat nominee after voting Democrat my entire life.

Re: “Danehy

Come on Tom this is now ridiculous. Our son (had a beard) checked in for flight to San Diego without check in luggage and was strip searched because he "fir the mold" of a middle eastern terrorist. Nobody came to his defense. My skin is the darkest in my family and I have been so fairly treated by TPD at all times. Some things are what you try to make them. Stop it.

Re: “Danehy

To tctw: just as you can use a butter-knife as a screwdriver, you can use arms that were developed for the express purpose of killing humans to kill other animals, and you can certainly train with them at a gun range. That does not make said weapons appropriate for general use. And frankly, any serious hunter would far prefer a Remington .270 or Weatherby .340 over any AR-15, no matter how nicely modded, anytime, especially for hunting and target shooting.
