Comment Archives: stories: News & Opinion: Danehy

Re: “Danehy

Instead of the usual blathering about right and left, I prefer the admittedly old-fashioned concepts of right and wrong, tempered by a skeptical examination of the facts. That means neither mindlessly rejecting "left-wing" ideas like universal healthcare and student loan forgiveness, nor accepting them without looking at the realistic and practical details. We basically look like slope-headed knuckle-draggers to many modern, industrialized countries these days and, unfortunately, we deserve the criticism (and, is obvious upthread, far too many Americans are accurately described by this criticism).

Re: “Danehy

Let people enter the country unchecked. Free college. Single payer,government run health care. Guaranteed paycheck for no-show govt. jobs. No more fossil fuel. What's not to love? I'd ask where all this money is coming from but I'd only get pooh-poohed.

Re: “Danehy

You have hit the nail on the head Mike. If democrats can't pull the hard left back towards Mao, we will lose the party.

The further left theDems go, the greater the chance that the Liar in Chief will be re-elected.

Re: “Danehy

Well, the one sure way that Dumbocrats could blow this election would be to repeat the same stupid strategy they employed to blow the last election: namely, to run an even-more-tired-stale-old-retread-loser-than-Hillary named "Joe Biden".

Biden--whatever you may think of his creepy-handsy-habits and his apparent belief that it's his divine right as an Old White Guy to aggressively invade the personal space of women and girls whenever and wherever he pleases--is a quintessential, perfectly distilled, blazingly clear representation of everything that's wrong with the corrupt corporate Democratic party leadership.

Creepy Joe hails from the Great Corporate State of Delaware, so of course he believes that "500 billionaires are not the problem." He's never met a profit margin he didn't like, and he's repeatedly, for decades, prioritized those profits over the people he's supposed to represent.

Creepy Joe made common cause with Republicans to enthusiastically push through an incredibly toxic and racist criminal justice "reform" that ended up eviscerating an entire generation of African American youth and their communities.

Creepy Joe presided over the public shredding of Anita Hill and the elevation of a profoundly unqualified candidate to the U.S. Supreme Court. He was the CHAIR of that committee, yet he has the revisionist gall to pretend that there was nothing he could do to stop it. This is not only morally reprehensible from the perspective of gender politics, it paved the way for a whole parade of other zealous ideologues to ascend to the Supreme Court, leading right up to and including serial abuser Brett Kavanaugh.

Creepy Joe was a big cheerleader for the vast criminal exercise known as the Iraq War that was founded in bald-faced, demonstrable lies, had nothing to do with 9/11, and resulted in hundreds of thousands of civilian deaths. A fair amount of responsibility for the war crimes of the Bush-Cheney mafia can be laid at the feet of witless Dumbocrats like Biden who gave them the blank check they needed to commit them.

I could go on, but I would suggest that all Dems read the recent roundup of Joe's toxic career in Harper's Magazine before deciding that he's the savior-grampa they really need.

Alas, polls indicate that Joe is running out in front of the D pack, even though he has yet to declare his candidacy. Polls this early in a presidential race mean precious little in terms of who is actually going to win, but these numbers do indicate one thing very clearly--far too many Dumbocrats are in denial about the true lessons of the 2016 election and seem to be intent on repeating its mistakes and facilitating the reelection of the very troglodyte they are so obsessed with defeating.

In what fantasy world is supporting a wildly popular initiative like Medicare-for-All, which is consistently polling with 70 percent support, a hindrance to a campaign? The ONLY reason Dems hesitate to support such a proposal is that the party leadership is actively pressuring them to resist it and undermining those candidates who don't. Why? because they are beholden to the behemoth corporations who profit handsomely from our current criminally corrupt, incredibly inefficient health care system at the expense of sick people.

If this country is really going to change for the better and be the more humane, rational, equitable society that so many Ds claim to want, then the Ds must get busy crushing the power structure that is stifling progressive elements of their own party and platform. And they must start NOW, in this Democratic primary, if they want to have any hope of unseating Tchump in 2020.

Check back with me in a year and a half. Tommy, I remember the last election where Miss Hillary was the odds on favorite. What did that get you?

Re: “Danehy

AG Barr has confirmed that Democrats have no acceptable governing theories. Tin foil hats all around. And, insulting others here proves it even further. Let's deal with the crisis democrats created at our border.

Re: “Danehy

The Democrats could do something about immigration. They could make sensible reductions in legal immigration. They could pass legislation making E-Verify mandatory to punish employers who scoff at the law and who hire cheap illegal workers instead of raising wages and hiring poor and working class Americans.
But no, they'll revel in identity politics, advocate socialism and open borders, collect campaign contributions from cheap labor industries, and lose big in 2020.
That's unfortunate, especially for the few things my party gets right these days like addressing climate change.

Re: “Danehy

Hey 2020 tRump Sheep boy:

First, let's have your fearless (Ha!) leader pay back the damn near $100 million that he has bilked from the American taxpayer for his weekend jaunts to Mar-a-Lago. Shit, let's make him repay for all the emoluments that he's collected from that shit also.

You tRump Sheep boys are Way Too Easy. All you do is ignore the real facts and go for the scraps. Once again, you expose yourself for the pathetic troll which you truly are.

Re: “Danehy

And I'll bet you also think that we don't have an immigration problem.

I saw a map of San Francisco yesterday and I think I saw a few spots where you would fit right in Danehy.

Idiot!!

"They lost close games at Oregon and Oregon State." Close games? Final margins of loss this year on the Oregon road trip were 22 and 33. Go Cats.
