I hope you saved up enough to pay the increase in your Federal taxes that the wonderful tax cut will cost you...

Re: “Danehy

A little TDS (Trump Derangement Syndrome), maybe?

"He could claim that he had given himself and his rich buddies a fat tax cut....."

I am FAR from being a 'rich buddy' or someone who is even close to being considered wealthy, but I got a nice tax cut, and I bet you did too.

Re: “Danehy

I'm probably a few years ahead of Tom in the rush to the finish line but still manage to find great music by great new musicians every week. My favorite this year is the Sweet Lizzy Project with Joan Delgado. And in our own backyard, Billy Sedlmayr's Charmed Life (released in '14). Yeah Tucson Kills and the Desert is No Lady, but that's another story.

Re: “Danehy

Or...could it have been a repudiation of socialism that Democrats seem hell bent and bringing here from every other failed country? No wonder they want open border immigration for all. They just released numbers that show more than one third of hispanics vote republican. They don't want socialism, they want a job that develops into a career. Just like most thinking Americans.

Re: “Danehy

Rick Spanier, agree with you but like Tom, I, too, remain intrigued by the marathon, self-inflicted nose-pinching (or was it?) so many female voters underwent while voting for Mr. T.
True, Hilary and Bill represented nothing more than Republican-lite and more of the Beltway same-old, same-old. And while Trump's image-makers projected "populism" despite himself and his background how the hell did he overcome the MSM's well-publicized charges of misogynism and self-admitted sexual assault proclivities? Are we entering an era of serious feminist backlash, female self-hatred, and out and out cultural masochism--as described for the Teutonic culture in Erich Fromm's seminal, _Escape from Freedom_? What widespread dysfunction in a culture induces folks to run toward the sado-masochistic embrace of authoritarians and dictators? Is the physical abuse of women that widespread? Sexual abuse? Is emotional violence toward women so endemic in certain strata of our culture that womanly openly embrace _even more_? I cannot tell. I am no sociologist but that this sado-masochistic streak reveals itself in the ballot box sends shivers up and down my spine! Has economic despair driven some folks to seek answers in the empty promises of the Horatio Algier myth and this myth-mongering Manhattan demagogue?
Does cultural conditioning (as in Pavlov's dog) run that deep? Drs. Jung and Freud, come back, all is forgiven....
Be well.

Re: “Danehy

My high school history teacher told us that though 200,000 Chinese poured into North Korea, our troops slaughtered them, which made them so disgusted that they couldn't fight any longer. He said that is why we weren't pushing in Vietnam any harder than we were. That was complete hogwash; the Chinese pushed U.S. troops almost into the sea. It made me lose respect for (some of) my teachers.

Re: “Danehy

Hampton Sides is an excellent writer. I would also highly recommend his book "Ghost Soldiers" about the rescue attempt of Bataan Death March survivors from a Japanese POW camp in The Philippines. It's a real page turner and was in part the basis of the movie "The Great Raid".

Re: “Danehy

It's an interesting flip of the coin to ask why so many white women who voted for Trump did not vote for their partner in gender Hillary Clinton. And when you dig a bit deeper than Tom is capable of, you begin to understand what happened in '16. Clinton and the gaggle of clowns running in the GOP primaries represented the establishment. Trump and Sanders - the most popular of the candidates - represented a repudiation of the establishment that had left many voters regardless of gender, feeling abandoned and voiceless. Trump's appeal was not focused on '50s sitcoms, it was squarely centered on resentment and disgust with politics as usual.

Re: “Danehy

. It was a well written article but I thought he'd go longer and deeper into the whys. As for most of the rest of the comments, . .its so obvious some of you on here are just bandwaggoning antagonistic simple minded trolls. I'm calling you out. Only three people on this thread wrote anything about the article and everybody else wrote about the Clintons or just innefectively insulted anybody who isn't a drumphf supporter.Do yourselves a favor and go read a lot of books. Some of you might want to start with comprehension manuals.

Tom Danehy wrote: "Bill Clinton committed a sin. "

Lying Tom Danehy conveniently avoided:

Juanita Broderick - Rape - Felony
Kathleen Willey - Sexual Assault - Felony
Leslie Millwee - Sexual Assault - Felony

Hey Tommy. A felony ? How about Hillary? It's so sad how blind you are. Actually it's hilarious.

Re: “Danehy

No it's not Tom. A sin is a sin is a sin. And then Clinton committed perjury. And then Hillary blamed others simply because she is hungry for power.

It's starting to sound like you don't like Mr Trump. Has he some something to you, personally?

Re: “Danehy

Bill Clinton committed a sin. Donald Trump brags about committing a felony. To me, anyway, that's a pretty big difference.

Re: “Danehy

There is a Robert Crumb illustration of a seated woman punching herself in the face. The caption reads, "Women voting Republican". Can't help but visualizing this in my mind's eye now when reading about any republican woman.

Re: “Danehy

Back in the 80's when Geraldine Ferraro got the Deomocrat nomination for VEEP, I mentioned it to the secretary of the office where I worked and her response was, "That's the stupidest thing I've ever heard. Women shouldn't be in politics." Which goes to show that misogyny doesn't exist only in men.
