Re: “Danehy

Tom,

Wish to pass along condolences on the passing of your radio sparring partner (and Automatic Weapons Editor) Emil Franzi. We've really missed hearing you and Emil on Saturday's "Inside Track" program after so many years. Sure, we didn't agree with you OR Emil on a lot of points, but hearing an animated and intelligent discussion was always a pleasant experience.

RIP, Franzi.

Re: “Danehy

Your inference that some prior global climate deal set a standard leading to the clean up of Pittsburg, Pa.,is really...stooopppiiiddd. Do some research before submittal, it might lead to less fake news, in whatever universe you live in.

Re: “Danehy

"I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris."

Funny that you mention that statement.

When I heard President Doofus say that, I almost choked on my laughter. My initial thought was that even I could come up with a better statement than that. On the 1 to 10 scale of pathetic, that one registered as a 9.8 easily.

Then I challenged myself to come up with something better and it took me about 2 seconds. I'm not exaggerating, I'm not embellishing. It took me 2 (probably even 1.5) seconds. This is the golden nugget that popped into my head:

"I was elected to represent the citizens of Paris, Texas...not Paris, France!"

Yeah, I know, it's bad. But I believe the next speech writer for President Goofy could easily be me or even the smartest gibbon at the Reid Park Zoo.

It ended for many of us last November. You seem to be existing in lag time, and bitter ignorant denial. Come join the living.

Re: “Danehy

But you need to remember that politics is a money business and these whiners have no money. Corporations do. And sometimes it benefits everybody. Sometimes it doesn't.

*standing up and applauding Rick Spanier's post*

When I consider "what forces propel two presidents who could not be more different in style and demeanor from pursuing the same destructive objectives" -- all I come up with is "follow the money."

Who is being enriched? Who is being impoverished? Mainstream Democrats are bought and paid for by big corporations and untraceable campaign donations (dark money). Mainstream Republicans are bought and paid for by big corporations and untraceable campaign donations (dark money).

The whole system is corrupt, and us regular folks are suffering in so many ways.

Right Joel. Whatever that meant.
Try listening to AZ/DC. He'll show you how to disagree making intelligent points without being a moron. If that's possible.

Re: “Danehy

Obama was a good, not great, president. Given the nature of the disloyal opposition's obstructionism and thinly veiled contempt, he did a decent job and left office with higher approval ratings than Trump will ever enjoy. That said, I notice similarities in the policies of both these presidential polar opposites. If you (on both sides) can cast aside your selective outrage, consider:

Both Obama and Trump set out to deport millions of undocumented with the assurance "only the criminals will be targeted." Both lied, and to date Obama holds the records for deporting the most undocumented without criminal histories - a number in the high hundreds of thousands if not millions.

Both Obama and Trump administrations brokered arms deals to our enemy in Saudi Arabia to the tune of over $100 billion. Remember 9/11 and the Saudi export of virulent radical terrorist ideology through an expanding network of madrases.

Both the Obama and Trump administrations actively engaged in an assault on US public schools under the premise of school improvement with funding going largely to private sector leeches. Remember Arne Duncan? I do. Like Betsy DeVos? I don't.

So if we take a moment to set aside our partisan-based disgust with either the former or present president, it might be a good idea to begin considering what forces propel two presidents who could not be more different in style and demeanor from pursuing the same destructive objectives.

Re: “Danehy

CW13, you have been quiet since you moved to Krupets from Dubna.
You will never get the much wanted Order of Lenin with silence. Your young man - servant David W. will be a shoo in for the Order of Disinformation.

Re: “Danehy

The existence of God has resurfaced as many people wonder how the Twitterer-in-Chief could visit the wall in Jerusalem without the All Mighty dropping it on him, or how he could visit the Vatican without being instantly struck down by lightening.

On a side note, did the "prayer" he slipped into the Wailing Wall whine about how he is the worst treated president ever?

"Donald Trump has looked like the world leader we have been waiting for."

Well, I wouldn't call you a racist as CW13 predicted. I will say that the last paragraph of your comment has to be the stupidest thing that I've read on this site in a while though. Quite the opposite of "Brilliant, simply brilliant!" in fact.

Re: “Danehy

Yeah that's what the ultra left does, and once again it wouldn't be true. But at this point, when confronted with facts, it is all they have.

Re: “Danehy

Is it possible that rather than attempting to judge "unspoken" thoughts, that you entertain the possibility that you are a flawed low information voter?

After 8 years of Obama one could list all the failures that were so ignored by you, because of his skin color. This thing cuts both ways. Why not adhere to MLK's "I have a dream" where you judge people on the content of their character?"

Here is a great place to start your rehab, from 2014.

By now, nearly five and a half years into the Obama presidency, objective people can draw reasonable conclusions, among which are these: Barack Obama was among the least prepared men to ever serve as presidency. It shows. He has been overmatched by events right from the start. He is an excellent campaigner but unusually inept when it comes to governing.

By temperament and experience, based on skill set and ability, Mr. Obama is much better equipped to be a community organizer than to be president of the United States.

For the sake of our nation and much of the world, I wish he had stayed on Chicagos South Side.

And then you must admit, this past week Donald Trump has looked like the world leader we have been waiting for. Brilliant, simply brilliant!

Don't count on it. However, I'll give Tom this much. Putney Swope was a great movie. One of the best satires ever. " How many syllables, Mario? How many syllables?"

Re: “Danehy

Thanks for another liberal rant, maybe next time we can have a non political, tired, Trump bashing column.
