Re: “Danehy

DACA kids could help themselves by being outwardly Republican. If they wore MAGA hats, Reagan T-shirts and put NRA stickers on their 7 year old Hondas, the Trump supporters wouldn't mind them being here. Heck, they might even sponsor a few. This works because Trump supporters never, ever actually talk to DACA kids or read anything authoritative on the subject. They form their opinions on visual data alone, and Fox news. It's been my experience that quite a few DACA kids and their families are actually very conservative in their politics. Republicans need all the friends they can get right now.

Re: “Danehy

Even Trumpeters have their limits. I find that most people are so shallow that they only change their viewpoint if they have been directly affected by something. This goes for everybody, including liberals. Karl Marx said, "if you want to know the truth, follow the money", Our schoolbooks used to tell us that settlers moved to the west in the 19th century because of their pioneering spirit and wanting to breath free. Pure nonsense. They moved because they had no jobs, no land, and no prospects. Facing "wild indians" wass better than starving to death back east. John Boehner now supports pot because it could make him extremely rich, not because his "views have evolved". Paul Ryan doesn't want to run again because he will lose and it will cost him money. It is not because he wants to spend time with his family. Trump supporters will turn on him the minute the economy implodes and they lose their houses, jobs, retirements, etc, and they won't even mention immigration.

Re: “Danehy

Theres a legitimate argument to be made on both sides. One simplistic article doesnt even scratch the surface. Im a big fan of title IX, but the reality is, mens sports is much more popular than womens sports. So much so that wealthy alumni will figure out many ingenious ways to remunerate male stars. Coaches in smaller markets just are not going to be able to recruit top talent if they compete evenly with powerhouse schools. So, cheating and under the table payments are the norm even for big schools. With the current system, college sports is living a lie. Scandal after scandal proves that. The first step to a better system is to admit that you have a problem, Tom.

If you think distracted driving is dangerous, Tom is the poster boy for distracted writing. Hes fun to read, but you could get whiplash trying to follow his thoughts.

Re: “Danehy

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: “Ask a Mexican

The proper answer to "Why did whites steal California from Mexico?" is, "...because they could." The history of the entire human race is one of territorial land grabs, invasion, empire building, dubious purchases, genocide, and plain old "I was here first" exploration. It has ever been thus. Sour grapes over what "used to be Mexico" is simply losers weepers. If land grabs are immoral, then the entire concept of being a "nation" is immoral. The solution is to stop crying over spilt milk, take pride in your country and maybe, one day, if your nation grows big and strong enough, you'll be able to grab the land back. I guarantee that nobody is just going to give it to you because you called dibs first.
