Re: “Danehy

"Lifelong Democrat" sucker punched you progressives and you fell for it. Read it again and you will find that you are sexist and only care about your own gains. So you are really the 1%ers. LOL

Re: “Danehy

Allen,
I've stolen nothing, from anyone.
By working stiff, I mean white working stiffs, black working stiffs, any working stiff that is not part of the corporate 1% wealthy that are often paying less income tax dollars than the rest of us. The rest of us whites, and other 99 percenters. Corporations in this country are generally made up of whites. There are exceptions, but show me. It's not about skin color at all. It's about the power to earn a buck, and keep a good percentage of that dollar. Baby president has made it so corporations regardless of their dominant color, are going to pay less in taxes than working stiffs, regardless of their color.
What about the Republican rant over the previous 8 years of the deficit? You don't hear any Republican ranting about the deficit that this tax "plan" will bring. I don't believe the Republicans are the only cocksuckers in the lobby's pockets, the Democrats are equally repugnant.

Re: “Danehy

I knew it. Sooner or later it is about skin color. How sad that you steal from hard working successful non whites the ability to take personal credits for their accomplishments.

Re: “Danehy

Yes, Mr Gandy, politics has become viral, a bacteria, a cancer on our culture. Yet there is a need for some type of governance. We must look out for the underdog. Regulations are necessary for clean air and water, and other basic needs like homeland security, and something as basic as garbage pick up. What ever happened to the notion of term limits? Why do we let the lobby's influence dominate? Why do corporations get what they want when a working stiff, works harder if he/she has a job, for less? And his/her taxes are about to increase, while their salaries or hourly wages will not increase.
....A new system has to be investigated. This country is becoming a resort for the 1%, white elite.
I am dreaming, I know, but it's time to clean the slate, and start over so that the other 99% can get theirs.

Re: “Danehy

Politics is a virus that attacks everyone who engages in it. It attacks the patient's integrity, ethics, and morality genes and destroys them, replacing them with an insatiable hunger for money and power. Its reservoirs are House and Senate chambers, Governors' offices, Regulatory agency Administrators' offices, and so forth. After infection, which can happen even before the politician takes the oath of office, there is a short period of incubation during which the patient expresses what will be the last expressions of integrity, humanity, and reason every to exit his or her mouth.

After the disease is in full progress, signs and symptoms appear such as serial lying, truth-bending, an insatiable lust for money and those who have it and want to control politics, complete loss of conscience, abandonment of common sense, the inability to feel empathy for those with less money than their donors, and myriad other signs and symptoms.

The only cure is removal from office.

Re: “Danehy

Franken should not have resigned. He was a champion for women's rights. The women that complained were probably paid by Trump to say it. And so what if a couple got their feelings hurt. We let Bill Clinton get away with it because the economy was doing so good, and our party agreed. And now the conservative democrats have turned against him. Stay strong Mr Franken, We can make you an Ambassador to Saudi Arabia once we dump Trump. Or maybe even Libya.

Re: “Danehy

Flake liked to have it both ways. In words and print, see his NY Times Opinion piece about his father's passing and the gentleman the family hired as a ranch hand, who eventually became part of the family. Touching story...Most likely this was an undocumented person. Flake almost seemed like he cared for the ranch hand. He seemed fair, intelligent, and sane in these current political times. But simply look at his voting record. He sides with our baby president over 90 percent of the time. Good riddance.
Also, although I am more liberal than most, good riddance to Al Franken. He screwed up...just like our baby president. Both need to be replaced by new blood who act on ethics, morals, and truth. Clean house and senate of liars, and greedy corporate !*#*suckers, whose only interest is lining their pockets with money. I don't even want to discuss Roy Moore, the pediphille who has the cojones to invoke the bible as rationale for his sins!

Al Franken just resigned and helped MAGA. Trump is letting these guys drain their own swamp creatures. How great is this?

Tom bragging about himself and family again, I guess it follows that his wife married way way down, LOL, and then the name calling, yawn. I agree, the budget overrides failing was too bad. Best of luck going forward to the WEEKLY

It is terrible that you are name calling and slandering those poor ranchers including the man shot to death by police.

Re: “Danehy

La Placita being gentrified? That brings back memories from the 70's when KRQQ was a great rock station and located there. I had to go over there a few times to pick up cheesy prizes. They had a "name that tune" thing early in the morning and I was able to beat others through the antiquated mechanical telephone network of the time to be first to name the tune. I may even still have one of the T-shirts but time has taken it's toll and it wouldn't fit any more. :-)

I attended the AMC 3 at La Placita a few times but can't even begin to remember when it was no longer a relevant place to go.

Re: “Danehy

"he says that the Civil War happened because the two sides refused to compromise. That's my last question. How exactly does one compromise on slavery? You just own people on the weekdays and give them the weekends off?"

Answer: Somehow, England and the rest of advanced civilization got rid of slavery without killing 600,000 people in a war. Its only recently that our deaths in other wars in total exceeded the civil war.

How exactly does one compromise on slavery? That's how. Peacefully. For example, the judiciary could have respected the state's rights of all the state's that moved to free the slaves much earlier.

"I get such a kick out of know-nothings who cry about being over-taxed (we're not) or how we have the highest taxes in the world (not even close)."

You are right, Europe has significantly higher taxes than we do, ever since President Reagan. But, since 1980, our employment has grown 60% while Europe's has only grown 26%. And, Europe's jobs were of much lower quality, fewer dollars per hour and fewer hours per week. Meanwhile, countries like New Zealand have significantly lower taxes than we do and are growing over 30% faster.

If we don't grow faster, Social Security is dead as we know it. It is projected for bankruptcy in 2029 even if we grow at 2.8%. Obama closed out with 2.0% in 2015 and 1.9% in 2016. Obama's growth rates add $29 trillion to the unfunded deficits of Social Security, meaning bankruptcy even faster than 2029.

Re: “Danehy

Here ya go...
. Guys wear skinny jeans for the same reason they wear cowboy hats: they are trendy in certain neighborhoods where they live. Remember Lew Murphy and his Guayabera shirt?

2. Jock think is an oxymoron.

3. The women who voted for trump are either well past their child bearing years or are what they think men want them to do.

4. it's 'Merica dang it.

5. Poor folks cannot afford pre-school. If your spouse is a full blown "house wife" in this day and age, they're either retired, or it is 1950.

6. Even Zachary Taylor knew better: "I hope some compromise will be entered into between the two parties, slavery & antislavery, which will have the effect of allaying violent passions on both sides."

7. Happy Birthday. Keep asking questions.

Re: “Danehy

I think CW13 was commenting the previous comment, not Danehy.

I have a new number. $5.8 trillion. The amount Trump's stock market has gone up since he surprised us with his election. That's on top of the $8 trillion the stock market went up as President Obama walked towards the door. So, Trump is a net $13.8 trillion in value delivery, moron that Danehy would have you believe that he is.

Re: “Danehy

A note on character, those whom HUAC and McCarthy harassed and accused, while often having good intentions, were mostly people who kept quiet or publicly blew off accusations of nastiness going on in the USSR. Also, they were people who raised no alarm during the Spanish Civil War when some American and other volunteers--leftists of various types--were disappeared by the Loyalists and Soviet advisors. Really, they had much in common with Trump, Manafort, Flynn, Hannity and so on now, giving a pass for collusion with Moscow. Hurrah for bipartisanship. (And, remember Jill Stein sitting with Flynn and Putin--unless you will not remember, by using your "disciplined mind" as per Orwell in 1984.

Re: “Danehy

Response to Hupp Needs to Vanish:

Did juveniles not murder 70 people in 1992?

Did they not murder 20 people in 2014?

Did our at-risk population not hugely increase?

Do well-run schools influence the social behavior of students?

Can teachers who care influence the social behavior of students?

Is the relationship between schools and parents in Arizona the best in the nation? Believe it or not, the answer to that question is possibly yes.

Nothing like a little input from an idiot into a discussion about economics. It must suck being you. I assume that all you have to offer is a challenge to fight. I'll pass.
