Re: “Danehy

Yeah, all those former Democrats turned into imbeciles in one election cycle. All those vaunted union members who were stalwarts of the Democratic Party are now lazy ass fools who didn't smell the coffee while drinking Democratic kool-aid. Yeah, the Republicans are plutocrats but Hillary Goddam Clinton got her millions and millions by pluck. Hey, Danehy you want to compare family freaking histories, anytime asshole. We are watching the duopoly circling the drain with both parties imploding but lets take shots at the intelligence of desperate folks who were abandoned by their base party that has ignored them and taken their votes for granted. I can't stand Trump but get a grip and recognize his election says as much about the feckless and ineffective Democrats as the bullies and bigots you dump on. Deplorable? Eat me.

Re: “Danehy

Government is not bad. There are many policies that benefit the majority of people in the United States. -Ricardo Small

You can say that and stomp your feet all you want, but the fact of the matter is that we had 10% of the nation uninsured. 30M. So we destroyed the system that cared for 90% of the country. Your altruism is terribly misguided. And make no mistake, the for profit health industry spends billions on R&D. Under the USC that is not a function of government.

Perhaps you have confused us with North Korea.

Re: “Danehy

Plutocracy (Greek: , ploutos, 'wealth' + , kratos, 'rule') or plutarchy, is a form of oligarchy and defines a society ruled or controlled by the small minority of the wealthiest citizens.
-- Wikipedia.

This nation has never been a true democracy, but is a republic that uses elected representatives of the people to serve their will. Unfortunately, it was relatively easy to pay for and buy representatives -- from both major parties -- than to have to buy every individual voter.

Allen P?

Wake the fuck up!

What kind of drugs are you taking?

Trump hasn't secured jack shit.

Also, history will prove this asshat to be a complete FAILURE!

You know, history.

As in about 3 years.

Re: “Danehy

More name calling and blind blame. Is that really who you are? Look at reality. 40 years of the EPA and water is not fit to drink? A global warming hoax that is now being admitted to. Doubling of the national debt with no measurable improvements. Profit is not a four letter word, but rather an opportunity to compete and develop more efficient services and improve technology.

If government were effective they would not have been tempted to legalize gambling on reservations to fund the Indian nation.

That is hundreds of years of failure. Trump has already secured a historical position far ahead of the last four presidents.

Re: “Danehy

Allen P ... the former family members and ex-friends turned on me, when they voted for tRump, who is methodically destroying much of what is very important to me. Bolstering the 'for profit' health care industry, liquidating public land, reversing environmental protection, cutting public school funding, and a long list of other attacks on government policies that help people. Government is not bad. There are many policies that benefit the majority of people in the United States. tRump is the one who fooled voters. His lies are legion. Our children should note just how devious this sonofabitch is and how he has destroyed the United States standing in the world.

Re: “Danehy

great article! - another point is the amount of disposable time that they spend on entertainment - they make choices - be entertained or spent that time becoming more informed. Look at many people in their 40's, 50's, 60's and older - their education stopped when they finished school - and now they get it from for profit media - being informed is not a priority - and that attitude is passed down to their children. Granted, not everyone - but definitely the majority that I see.

Re: “Danehy

Disowned family members and turned on friends in a country that allows freedom of expression. Take a listen to yourself. That is pitiful that you place so much hope for your happiness on government. How did you let that happen?

The name calling is so childish and ignorant. Another one educated into ignorance? Pay attention children, this is the death of the democratic party, that no longer has the ability to fool voters.

Re: “Danehy

Mr. Danehy wrote another outstanding column. I agree 100% about talking to the fools who voted for tRump. In fact, I disowned family members who did and withdrew from friendships, some decades long, with idiots who voted for the rotten sonofabitch tRump. The cult of ignorance leads to completely mistaken opinions and votes that are so far fetched, only the ignorant could possibly believe them ... like thinking tRump is going to help anyone other than the rich get richer, particularly himself and his spawn.

Re: “Danehy

That's just it Killian, they don't. Except in this man's confused and angry world. One of these has already turned their elitist ideas into gun fire.

They need to stop thinking they have all the answers because it is clear they don't.

Re: “Danehy

I have trouble with your description of Trump supporters and the people I know who support him. With the exception of my hairdresser who thinks Hillary was 'too deceitful' to vote for, they are educated, knowledgeable people. One is a nurse practitioner, one is a Certified Nurse Anesthetist, one is a teacher, and one is a former state department employee. They all have high-paying jobs and graduate degrees. How do they fit in with the stereotype of people we have of Trump supporters as uneducated, underemployed yahoos?

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".
