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.

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.

Re: “Danehy

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.

Re: “Danehy

Let me give you few new numbers. $5 trillion, the amount that the stock market, along with our 401ks, police pension funds,m and teacher pension funds have gone up since Trump surprised us and investors with his election.

The stock market hit a new peak of $28.6 trillion on the day that Trump announced his tax package.
All of Europe is worth less than $8 trillion.

Our stock market is forecasting over 5% growth for us while Europe's is forecasting less than 1% growth for them.

Wow, John, with that comment, you still are proving that you don't know anything about anything.

Keep up the shitty work.

Re: “Danehy

Azmom,

Don't worry about the dislikes. When they are higher than 9, its because one person came through with an anonymizer and disliked you 15 times. Your 7 likes are very solid. Only about 1 in ten readers register an opinion.

Your experience with charter schools is typical of probably 70,000 parents whose children would never survive a district school.

We can see this huge effect in the social data. Since we started charter schools in 1992, murders by juveniles have dropped from 70 to 20 despite our at-risk population rising from less than 100,000 to more than 400,000.

And, it's not just murdering, it is all juvenile crime. Our juvenile detention centers in Arizona have just about vanished.

Re: “Danehy

Listen to Ronald Reagan ? I don't think so. According to the intellectually challenged ( is that better Mr. Corvi ?) writer of the above gibberish, Reagan was a total boob who hoodwinked us with " voodoo economics". I wish he had a pair and would be open to a debate with you on the subject. Now, that would be funny.

Re: “Danehy

"mindless facism" more like muddy thinking. Facism is communism. It is the belief that government, because of economies of scale, can do a better job of producing things like computers than IBM or Apple.

Where did this idea come from? Karl Marx. People, idiots, actually, believed that north Korea and Venezuela would produce a higher standard of living instead of the starvation.

Karl Menger, within 15 years of Marx, completely destroyed the intellectual underpinnings of communism and predicted the 80% economic collapse and starvation that took place in russia.

Contrary to your brainless article, people didn't view communism as a fashionable sweater, serious discussion took place to kill millions of us all the way through the 60s. See the intercepts on the weathermen.

Want to see the most eloquent testimony you will ever hear? Listen to Ronald Reagan talk about the ability of our system, our first amendment, our democracy to handle threats like this. All without sacrificing our values. People are free to plan to murder us all.

Re: “Danehy

Economic growth refers to the Gross National Product. Obama was the first president in U.S. history not only to not to have a 3.0% growth year, he never reached 2.5%.

The stock market, the most accurate predictor of the economy, has already gone up $5.0 trillion, 18%, under Trump to $28.6 trillion. Trump's stock market is implicitly forecasting over 5% growth.

By comparison, all Europe is worth $8 trillion total and is forecasting 1% growth for them.

Using Nintzel's inexcusable and historically unjustified language, that rat Obama's two best years, 15 and 16 had total growth of 3.5%.

By comparison President Reagan's two best years, 87 and 88, the economy grew over 8%, putting the rat to complete shame.

Re: “Danehy

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Finally someone who challenges what I said without calling me names like that idiot who signs his posts CW is an asshole or some other such nonsense.
I caught part of it on the Steeple Report, a daily financial post. I looked it up on Politifact. A non-political site that said Obama never had higher than 1.5 economic growth.
I'm not an economist, but I'm a little familiar economic growth. In a nut shell economic growth is caused by an increase in aggregate supply and demand. It's an increase in National output and income.
Like I said I'm not an economist but I know positive economic growth is a good thing.
I enjoyed sharing ideas with you. At least you're not an asshole who hits dislike and runs.
You be well, too.

Re: “Danehy

Mr. CW13,
Please, sir. A statistic as a _talking point_ remains meaningless to the rest of us unless documented. Could you please cite a reliable source for such a generalized assertion?
You assert, "In 8 years under Obummer ( 32 Quarters ) The economy never grew more that 1.5 %. Under Trump it's already grown 3.0 %."
Assuming the word "economy" applies to every man, woman and child in the good, old US of A, one can presume that every working person's salary and benefits have increased 3% vis a vis Obama's 1.5%.
If so, cite a source.
Assuming that your statistic applies to the homeless population, does that mean the number of homeless has decreased 3% vs 1.5% during Obama's tenure?
Assuming it applies to the unemployed, does your statistic mean that 3% more people have found a living wage job vs 1.5% during Obama's term, that manufacturing has returned to American shores?
Assuming that it applies to college students, does your statistic mean that 3% no longer have to apply for student loans to attend college, vs 1.5% less during the Obama years?
Assuming that it applies to elementary school children, does that mean that 3% less have dropped out of the poverty level, no longer need school breakfasts and lunches to get through the academic rigors of the school day vs. 1.5% during the Obama years?
Does your statistic mean that the sales of stocks have increased 3% vs 1.5% that may or may not have occurred during the Obama years?
I could go on and on asking these questions about the _economy_ and its _real_ impact on the man on the street, in terms we could measure. In terms of quantity and quality...of life.
Facts are one thing, propaganda another...
Be well.

Re: “Danehy

In 8 years under Obummer ( 32 Quarters ) The economy never grew more that 1.5 %. Under Trump it's already grown 3.0 % I voted for Trump to be my president, not my priest.
Now the fun begins. Your Legion of Liberal Losers will line up 10 deep to hit dislike and call me all sorts of moronic names. But no one will offer a substantive argument. Not even Miss Francis or his " friend " Peabrain.
Let the games begin.
