Re: “As Approval Ratings Plunge, McSally Snaps at CNN Reporter

I don't know what happened to America that so many today ignore the lessons our founding fathers fought for, as did the fathers, brothers and sons American families sent to Europe to fight fascism during WWII. Forgot that our American ideals and freedom depend on the defense of democracy - defense by a free press and those that will show the courage to stand up to a corrupt and autocratic president.

Re: “Danehy

@WarrenStephens: that's a lot of unsubstantiated statements and conjecture. Party affiliation was not stated, there is nothing that can be described as "hatred," day dreams are not delusions, and the sample size is too small to call anything an "activity of choice." That is Trump's style though, just blast out a bunch of nonsense and readers that don't care to do any critical thinking will just go along.

Re: “As Approval Ratings Plunge, McSally Snaps at CNN Reporter

I really don't know why her staff chose to post this. It does not make her look very good here.

Then again, it's not like she actually tries to represent Arizonans.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Yee-Haw For Guns

No matter who you are, and no matter what your views may be, expressing yourself without using the most basic rules of grammar is enough to discredit anything you have to say. If you want for your opinions to be taken seriously, consider using capitalization in your sentences. It demonstrates that you care enough about your subject matter to construct serious, readable sentences. If you don't care, why should the reader?

Re: “The Skinny

Hopefully Mark will win and prevent the republican lemming from stealing your vote, SS and Medicare while giving the rich even more tax breaks they don't need while further trying to reduce workers pay. And yes, Mark will also be a big D-MAFB supporter.

McSally's remark to a reporter who is now a liberal hack says more about her than the reporter: she's as ugly on the inside as she is on the outside.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Yee-Haw For Guns

Except you two above, of course you didn't understand the cartoon, because of course as ideologues you are focused on your agenda, not the actual problem - much less a solution. It is not the "good guy with a gun" that is the problem, it is the toxic gun culture that rationalizes the "good guy with a gun". Because if people like you could see beyond this absurdity, you would realize that more guns, no matter in whose hands, did not make places like Somalia and Beirut more peaceful. Or Mexico with its strict gun laws. We as a nation value blame over solutions, and expediency over real change. And the result? "More guns!", and blame the "far left agenda" more than the actual know, the "right agenda". Very much in the way that those who hate the government, get elected just so they can tear down the government, and then blame the government for not working.

Yeah, "logic"...logic of the demented.

Re: “As Approval Ratings Plunge, McSally Snaps at CNN Reporter

I like to prepare for the worst and hope for the best, but unless the Democratic Party gets their collective sh@t together, I fear four more years of a Trump administration, which brings me to why you should really check out Fox programing to see who's coming on and doing video interviews for potential positions in the current and future administration to include Martha, who may have her gun sights on a DHS or DoD position.

Regardless of what they say, Fox only has an audience of one that really matters and the parade of potential sycophants is never ending.

Meanwhile, China, Russia, North Korea and multiple non-state-sponsored terrorist organizations continue to plan our social, economic and military demise, as U.S. military personnel, equipment and funding is diverted to the Southern border propaganda art installation and vanity piece know as "The Wall" -- not to be confused with the Pink Floyd work of the same name, which was a cautionary musical story of what happens when a little boy is traumatized at a young age, finds a voice through popular music and attempts to foist a fascist vision on the masses while building a mental wall around his vulnerabilities and human emotions ...oh wait.

Hope her "you're a liberal hack" comment to a national journalist in the halls of the Capitol helps her demise.

Re: “Danehy

Mr. Danehy, I swear. Thank you for this light(er)-hearted, post-Christmas entry.
All the while as I slowly enjoyed your tortilla-odyssey narrative a sense of poignant empathy flooded my holiday-blued soul. Welcome to a universe where mom, the wife, girlfriend, concubine of choice or significant other while standing over the pan or mixer cries out, "Darn, forgot the X, want to drive over to Y (local store 1/2mile away) and get me a small package of X?" And so, the Christmas quest begins. The closest store is closed (or open but they're our of X) and the saga continues as one navigates from holiday-zapped closed store to closed store, then to yet more open ones with empty X bins. And so it goes. I almost leaped and kicked my heels at your success. Gluten-free hippie! Hah! I still chuckle as I write these words. Reminder: keep those friends. They're the ones who were there for you when your local grocer wasn't. Re: the urban legend about Chinese establishments: they're all true! Thank god, or Buddha, or whomever...
As for that "Trump-more-popular-than-honest-Abe" Republican poll, take it with a grain of salt, or a sip of grain (preferably of the single malt variety). Republicans suffer from Stockholm syndrome; nothing more need be said on this particular, real-life "Invasion of the Body Snatchers" moment. They Live on. In the sage words of Ron White, "You can't fix stupid." All one can do is out-live it and out-vote it...
That said, hmm, the old lady and I will try lasagna for Christmas dinner next year! We're still burping our extended family's tamales, ham, tri-tip, turkey, etc....
Happy New Year, thanks again for the, as always, illuminating entertainment and be well.

Re: “As Approval Ratings Plunge, McSally Snaps at CNN Reporter

She's not a fighter pilot., as she claimed. She flew an A-10 Thunderbolt II, which is an attack aircraft - a light bomber. Martha McSally is a political coward and an empty flight suit. She will lose to Mark Kelly. Good riddance to her. She will probably find a comfy sinecure in the military-industrial complex.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: To Solemnly Lickspittle

I remember the Clinton impeachment. He was being tried for the crime of lying about accepting the offer of a blowjob on his coffee break. An offer that was made 5 years after the investigation was started, and only discovered because the Starr Investigation had Tripp illegally spy and tape people in the White House. She went to prison for it. Fair and impartial? Please. trump and inner circle have committed actual crimes, plenty of them, bribery and extortion etc. Over a dozen witnesses and hundreds of pages of documents prove it beyond question. The only question left, will republicans be impartial enough to face the facts? Or will their fear of retribution from this administration cow them into obedience.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Reasonable Radicals

Kill Americans? The American Contractor (AKA mercenary) was an Iraqi that became a Naturalized Citizen. I am not going to shed a tear for a Mercenary who chooses to kill people for a living. That's kinda like a Carpenter being mad he got a splinter.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Reasonable Radicals

As long as wars are started by people sitting comfortably in the rear issuing orders placing others in harm's way, this cavalier attitude will exist on all sides regardless of the patriotic, nationalist, religious, ideological, economic or other spin that is used to justify it.

Fortunately, for those who would play at war, there are many young men and women -- some full of hope and striving for a better future, and some full of unfocused hate and anger -- that will place their lives on the line enabling a very small minority to run, rule and ruin the world for the rest of humanity.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Putin Calling

Hey Captain Arizona please read this;Hunter Biden working for Burisma for $600,000.00 a year would have to work for 192 years just to equal the amount of money spent by Trump going golfing in three years at his own golf courses. $Trump has cost the taxpayer $115,000,000.00 since he stole the White House. You don't hear the Republicans going into hysterics over Trump's abuse of power by wasting money that could be used for something that has some real value. Republican's sense of reality is warped beyond belief and they will never be any different. Don't say a damn thing about the Bidens if you don't have enough balls to condemn Trump and the Republicans for trying to bankrupt this country on their frivolous use of OUR MONEY!

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Yee-Haw For Guns

Republicans seem to have some warped concept that Democrats don't own guns. Yes DEMOCRATS DO OWN GUNS, lots of guns. Every relative of mine had at least 10 to 15 guns at all times in their homes and they were used mainly for hunting game. Democrats aren't so paranoid that they have to carry their arsenal on them or in their vehicles at all times like most Republicans do. Democrats are too sensible about their behavior with guns and Republicans find it offensive that aren't hanging guns in their trucks, carry pieces under their vests .
