Re: “Danehy

Thanks for that great analysis of where we are and how we got here. Trying to convince kids that it is cool to be smart is not easy!

Re: “Danehy

Allen Kath hardly knows "everything". He can't even pronounce Ina & Houghton Roads correctly - something that should be a priority for a so-called Traffic Reporter.

One thing that really bugs me is the number of local reporters who don't know the difference between Streets & Avenues. We often hear about crashes at impossible intersections ... for example Alvernon & Sixth Avenue.

Re: “Danehy

Yeah. He coaches a bunch of 12 year old girl basketball players. Honorable, but far from a real job. Tom's wife is a school teacher, so he can coach basketball and write his Pulitzer winning column and still eat. The best part is he's proud of it and admits it's true.

Re: “Danehy

Hey Tom, why do you drive around listening to a "right wing crackpot station" when you can listen to that loudmouth bully Frank on KLPX? He is right up your whiny alley. Bully pulpit, and take my ball, go home and insult those that don't agree with me. You both should have a lib fest event. Go Trump and common sense. BTW, do you actually have a real job at all?

Re: “Danehy

Sorry folks but we have listened to this uninformed crap from the left for six months. And today we find out that Comey is the leaker Comey is looking for, and the President has the authority to stop any investigation he wants. Yet he didn't.

You guys really have nothing do you? Add 6 months to his first term that you stole.

Re: “Danehy

ladderflappy, as the writer Mr. Danehy implies, as the reader you infer. There is a difference. You now know the difference.

What he implied was that Pittsburg was able to clean up its act and meet the goals of the Paris Accord long before there was a Paris Accord. In doing so he was letting you know that this shit can be done. Backing the US out of the "deal" does not actually do anything for the US, only against the US. It's a red herring, fake news that Trump is espousing it as a great accomplishment. That should make you worry. The recurring phrase that comes to my mind whenever I hear Trump speak/tweet/announce is "And Jesus Wept".

Re: “Danehy

When did it become socially acceptable to publicly revel in one's stupidity?
January 20, 2017.

When did the White House start hiring charter-school dropouts to write their speeches?
January 20, 2017.

Did they ever find the guy who carjacked the Mayor?
The mayor wasn't carjacked. He drove his car into a giant pot hole and the police couldn't come for hours because they had old cars, and the fire department couldn't come either, because they had old fire trucks, and while he was sitting in the pot hole the major decided we needed Proposition 101.

What would it take for you to regret having voted for Donald Trump?

Re: “Danehy


Wish to pass along condolences on the passing of your radio sparring partner (and Automatic Weapons Editor) Emil Franzi. We've really missed hearing you and Emil on Saturday's "Inside Track" program after so many years. Sure, we didn't agree with you OR Emil on a lot of points, but hearing an animated and intelligent discussion was always a pleasant experience.

RIP, Franzi.

Re: “Danehy

Your inference that some prior global climate deal set a standard leading to the clean up of Pittsburg, Pa.,is really...stooopppiiiddd. Do some research before submittal, it might lead to less fake news, in whatever universe you live in.

Re: “Danehy

"I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris."

Funny that you mention that statement.

When I heard President Doofus say that, I almost choked on my laughter. My initial thought was that even I could come up with a better statement than that. On the 1 to 10 scale of pathetic, that one registered as a 9.8 easily.

Then I challenged myself to come up with something better and it took me about 2 seconds. I'm not exaggerating, I'm not embellishing. It took me 2 (probably even 1.5) seconds. This is the golden nugget that popped into my head:

"I was elected to represent the citizens of Paris, Texas...not Paris, France!"

Yeah, I know, it's bad. But I believe the next speech writer for President Goofy could easily be me or even the smartest gibbon at the Reid Park Zoo.

It ended for many of us last November. You seem to be existing in lag time, and bitter ignorant denial. Come join the living.

Re: “Danehy

But you need to remember that politics is a money business and these whiners have no money. Corporations do. And sometimes it benefits everybody. Sometimes it doesn't.

Re: “Danehy

*standing up and applauding Rick Spanier's post*

When I consider "what forces propel two presidents who could not be more different in style and demeanor from pursuing the same destructive objectives" -- all I come up with is "follow the money."

Who is being enriched? Who is being impoverished? Mainstream Democrats are bought and paid for by big corporations and untraceable campaign donations (dark money). Mainstream Republicans are bought and paid for by big corporations and untraceable campaign donations (dark money).

The whole system is corrupt, and us regular folks are suffering in so many ways.

Right Joel. Whatever that meant.
Try listening to AZ/DC. He'll show you how to disagree making intelligent points without being a moron. If that's possible.

Re: “Danehy

Obama was a good, not great, president. Given the nature of the disloyal opposition's obstructionism and thinly veiled contempt, he did a decent job and left office with higher approval ratings than Trump will ever enjoy. That said, I notice similarities in the policies of both these presidential polar opposites. If you (on both sides) can cast aside your selective outrage, consider:

Both Obama and Trump set out to deport millions of undocumented with the assurance "only the criminals will be targeted." Both lied, and to date Obama holds the records for deporting the most undocumented without criminal histories - a number in the high hundreds of thousands if not millions.

Both Obama and Trump administrations brokered arms deals to our enemy in Saudi Arabia to the tune of over $100 billion. Remember 9/11 and the Saudi export of virulent radical terrorist ideology through an expanding network of madrases.

Both the Obama and Trump administrations actively engaged in an assault on US public schools under the premise of school improvement with funding going largely to private sector leeches. Remember Arne Duncan? I do. Like Betsy DeVos? I don't.

So if we take a moment to set aside our partisan-based disgust with either the former or present president, it might be a good idea to begin considering what forces propel two presidents who could not be more different in style and demeanor from pursuing the same destructive objectives.

CW13, you have been quiet since you moved to Krupets from Dubna.
You will never get the much wanted Order of Lenin with silence. Your young man - servant David W. will be a shoo in for the Order of Disinformation.
