Comment Archives: stories: News & Opinion: Danehy

Re: “Danehy

Thank you for putting down so eloquently what I have felt a few times with colleagues of mine. I cannot believe that people can be so blinkered, but it seems to be true.

Please keep up the great work. We will prevail.

Re: “Danehy

Martha McSally is a sellout to her gender, her military career & to her country. Why? Shes not concerned about tRumps character.

Re: “Danehy

The Martha McSellout sycophancy is my pet peeve. She is supporting Trump who wants to build "The Wall". Everybody will refer to it as "Trump's Wall". Price quotes are in the low BILLIONS but it will cost 20 BILLION. My question is how the government can find money for trans-continental walls, two new Presidential Jets, and 30% pay raises for the military while Health Care, Social Security and Education get pushed to the back of the room like ugly step-children. If you are receiving Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security, and you vote for Martha McSally, I hope you remember this warning when they cut your benefits and health care to the bone and you worry constantly how you are going to survive.

Re: “Danehy

"Never mind 3.2 million people voted then there are adult voters in the US." You've got your lies mixed up. Trump claimed 3.2 million illegal immigrants voted. Turnout was 58% so its impossible that there were more voters than adults in the US. He had to make up some excuse for Clinton getting over 2 million more votes that he did.

Re: “Danehy

Nearly word for word what happened with my ex-friends and my ex-family members who voted for tRump and who continue to voice support for the dime store Mussolini the orange turd in the White House. Great column, Mr. Danehy.

Re: “Danehy

And so, it goes without firing a shot the American Republic could fall and all that will be left is the sound of laughter from Kim Jong Un, Xi Jinping and Vladimir Putin.

I myself have contributed to this debate, but the viciousness and divisiveness of it must end.

When I was old enough to register to vote, I registered as an Independent because I wanted the freedom to vote for the best person regardless of party affiliations, but today, from both sides, I hear that there are only two choices and I must choose; However, recent history has shown that neither side can claim exclusive rights to knowing what is best for our nation.

What the two parties have shown again and again is how frequently they act like what is best for their party is best for the nation in the face of all evidence to the contrary. There is also a tendency, regardless of party affiliation, to take the side of corporate and special interests as being what is best for the nation -- again in the face of all evidence to the contrary.

There must be a better way than pitting one side against the other fighting in some colosseum of ideas where only one side can win, and the others must die.

I do not claim to know what the solution is, but this continual and visceral fighting between ourselves serves only our enemies, and rest assured we have many enemies in the world that are delighted by this base and vulgar display that is neither great or American.

"I see in the near future a crisis approaching that unnerves me and causes me to tremble for the safety of my country. Corporations have been enthroned, an era of corruption in high places will follow, and the money-power of the country will endeavor to prolong its reign by working upon the prejudices of the people until the wealth is aggregated in a few hands and the Republic is destroyed." -- Unknown, often attributed to Abraham Lincoln

Re: “Danehy

This is Tom. I don't believe that people who are in favor of strict immigration enforcement are inherently racist. I have never made that claim. I'm not even sure how much of Trump's racism enters into his border "policy." He might just see it as a winning strategy, politically. He's very obviously racist, but I'm not sure why. Maybe Ivanka smiled at a black guy once and it was more than Trump could take.

Re: “Danehy

Those who still maintain their laughable pose here as know-nothing Trump apologists are beyond redemption. Perhaps they should be reading the Constitution instead. Oops - it doesn't come with a comments section!

Re: “Danehy

Tom, you are very unkind in this article. You call Trump a misogynist, a bigot, a bully, a liar and a dumb-ass. This is insulting to misogynists, bigots, bullies, liars and dumb-asses the world over.

Re: “Danehy

You don't have to be a genius to see that Trump is a dumbass or that his Trumpuppets should have a swastika tattooed on their foreheads . They are willing to murder Democracy and honor Vladimir Putin with the dead carcass. Trump is using his nitwits to continue building the Trump brand internationally. The Trumparrots are wrapped up in their zeal for a leader who openly expresses his racism, sexism, and ignorance giving them the go-ahead to do and say what they have suppressed since the Civil War. Using reason with this army of cretins to convince them of their folly would be akin to stopping a mass suicide of lemmings intent on their own destruction.

Re: “Danehy

The personal insults from CW13 are just like others from anonymous commenters who have nothing factual to say. They resort to making fun of my last name, among other lies. Most anonymous commenters are cowards, who would defecate their pants face to face and run from a physical fight to back up their personal insults.

Re: “Danehy: How Do Arizona’s Charter Schools Get Away With Swindling Students and Fleecing Taxpayers?

I got hired by a charter school on Prince back in 2012 to tutor any students who wanted to take the AIMS test. Few did, for they preferred to sit around and talk with their friends, but what I saw, rather what I didn't see, was astounding. Not one "teacher" presented lessons to any class. They had packets available for students who chose to work, and they were available if anyone asked for help, but there were no presentations, nothing that resembled a lesson. After teaching in public schools for 16 years, this charter more resembled a scam than a school.

Re: “Danehy

Tom Danehy's column is 100% correct about Jonathan Hoffman. I used to subscribe to the Arizona Daily Star. When I realized that the Star mistakenly publishes Hoffman's blathering right wing screeds, I cancelled my subscription and will never renew, as long as Hoffman's crap appears in the Star's pages. Years ago, before the Star lost their standards by including Hoffman's junk, I crossed swords with Hoffman over his idiotic opinion that desert bighorn sheep do well around open pit copper mines. He wrote that sheep were seen on mine tailings, so the giant chasms that go deeper than the water table must be okay and should not be limited by concern for the survival of desert bighorn sheep. Jonathan Hoffman is an idiot, just like Mr. Danehy's column clearly points out.

Trump hasn't secured jack shit.

Also, history will prove this asshat to be a complete FAILURE!

You know, history.

As in about 3 years.

Re: “Danehy

Unfortunately, we did not make it. It was near Essex, I believe. We did go to Shopsin's again at the Essex Street Market and, as always, Joe's on Carmine. Maybe next time. When I retire, I will spend a year (at least) in New York City. Tell me the name of the place one more time.

As for the other, you may want to consult someone. In Arizona, occupying an otherwise neglected property publically for more than two years gives someone squatter's rights. You may never get him out.

Re: “Danehy: How Do Arizona’s Charter Schools Get Away With Swindling Students and Fleecing Taxpayers?

Thanks to the voters of Arizona for removing Huppenthal from public office. That has got to be the all time greatest misuse of statistics in history. Lets see, less murders, correlated with the rise of charter schools, which civilize society. Im guessing we could correlate less murders with the rise in the numbers of haboobs, or the lowering of Lake Mead, or all the iillegal signs you put up all over Arizona in your ignominious defeat, or sunspots.

Re: “Danehy

Wow! I am consistently amazed at the nastiness of the right...not to mention the total and complete hypocrisy. Mr. Danehy, you have guts. Just remember to never confuse the right wingers with facts. Facts are never in their thoughts and only serve to confuse them and their rigid views.

Re: “Danehy

Hey Human Garbage, why does this list you link have to be listed as having happened under Obama? Surely any right thinking person would not want these things to happen under any administration? Pruitt is a nincompoop no matter who he serves under. Thank god he has gone.
