Re: “Danehy

You cannot squeeze out much sympathy for the guy in Detroit who was left adrift when the factory where his grandfather and father worked moved overseas. You say he should have gotten an education. But I know a lot of educated people who were left behind when technology changed and computers took their jobs. I spent a lot of classroom time learning to be a COBOL programmer - not such a hot field now. Then I spent years getting a master's degree in a field that was made obsolete by computers. I am, by no means, as badly off as many people who studied hard, worked hard, and were left in the dust.

Re: “Danehy

In my 6 years around here I've been accused of everything from having an improper relationship with my mother to torturing kittens. But, I have NEVER, I repeat NEVER been accused of being a left-winger. I guess there's a first time for everything. No offense taken, Roy.

I have stopped communicating with people whose vocabulary is limited to four letter words. The hateful homophobic rants diminish this publication, and stifle discussion.

I'm SORRY CS13; my bad!

I misread the IDENTITY of the objectionable post.

Re: “Danehy

CW13's comment presents us with a DELIGHTFUL example example of empty headed left wing group-think.

Re: “Danehy

Danehy shows a picture of Asimov to imply that Danehy too is a "thinker."

But Danehy thinks not.

Danehy is merely an unapologetic, left wing partisan, steeped in left wing propaganda, so he frames his world view as one.

Danehy believes anyone who didn't vote for Hillary is a "stupid racist" who doesn't know what's good for them.

Guess what? Trump was NOT elected by "RACIST" Americans.

TRUMP was elected by the much abused, hard working, class of forgotten Americans, including LABOR, who now has to compete with an endless supply of Illegal Labor from south of the border.

Left Wing policies have FAILED!

Open Border policy is DEAD!

Behold the rise of Americans with "Common Sense!"

This, from Roy Warden, the "Notorious Mexican Flag Burner" and the publisher of Arizona Common Sense.

Re: “Danehy

Republicans will have a built in advantage for so long as Democrats continue to mistake ideological disagreement for ignorance. I understand why they do it. It's comforting. It assures them they are the virtuous, all-knowing Cloud People who could build a utopia if not for these Dirt People who just haven't taken enough sociology courses at an elite coastal universities to know what is best for them. The nice thing (for my side) about this reaction, is that prevents the Democrats from engaging in any introspection, or asking the tough questions about why they lost. Self-reflection is uncomfortable. Far easier just to call the people who disagree with you "stupid."

Politics in 2016 is now about identity - to which tribe to you belong? - than it is about knowledge. You see, if only college educated whites had voted in the 2016 election, Trump's margin of victory would have been bigger. And Danehy knows that. The lecture he delivers to the working class, rust belt whites in this piece - do you think he would give that speech in inner city Baltimore? Would he drive out to Sells, and tell everyone, "you people just need to study math! Pull yerselfs up by yer bootstraps like mi papi did!" Of course not. Those people are on Danehy's team, so they're worthy of his sympathy; rust belt whites aren't, so they're not. In the end, it's not about knowledge or ignorance for Danehy either - it's about who are your people, and who aren't.

Re: “Danehy

It is hard to believe after all the Trump administration has accomplished and all the #MAGA moves they are making that there are still people out there that hate our President. Obviously Danehy must feed bile to his followers even though that universe is rapidly shrinking. Knowledgeable folks are looking past Trump's many, superficial flaws and realizing what an asset it is to have a businessman's focus in the White House.

Re: “Danehy

Amen brother. My retirement account has increased 20% in the last 6 months. And that means I can be more generous with giving some of my money to others even as I pay more in federal and state taxes. If these folks are so smart, why don't they understand simple math?

They aren't that smart. They just think they are.

Re: “Danehy

Let me give you a number: $4 trillion. That's how much the stock market has increased since Trump surprised everyone, including investors, by getting elected. Do you know what the total stock market is in France? $3 trillion. Great Britain? $4 trillion. China, with its 1.3 billion residents? $7 trillion.

That's a completely new trajectory for our economy and for our nation. That $4 trillion means that Hillary's entire $1.1 billion campaign was a scam, trying to falsely convince us that we would all be better off with higher taxes, more regulation and more people on welfare.

Somehow, the unwashed masses, ignorant as we are, figured it out.

Re: “Danehy

If Danehy was simply bashing Trump, so what? What Danehy is saying is that the portion of the electorate that abandoned the Democrats, did so because they are stupid and deplorable. His scorn speaks volumes about his own limited intelligence and empathy and perpetual reliance on his own rags to riches climb out of poverty - a story that is hardly unique in our history - or one that he hasn't trotted out dozens if not hundreds of times over the years. He needs to get some new material.
