Dearest UCanSee--You are absolutely correct. I will demand that the editor immediately remove your hateful comment. Thanks for bringing that up!
Allowing this piece of hate to be published reflects poorly on the CSIndy.
Mike: Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but take your insulting ageist horse shit elsewhere.
Yeah, I guess the right has conviently forgotten the last 8 years of hate that they rained down on Obama. They voted in a candidate backed by the KKK. It's like they've just smeared shit over every WWII soldiers grave with their voting in of President Man-Baby.
Thank goodness the President doesn't have near as much power as the average idiot seems to think he does. If he did I would be very afraid but if 8 years of Bush didn't prove that no idiot is going to be allowed an unsupervised presidency. He will do as much damage as the real people in power allow him to to serve their own purposes.
Hey Mike What has Clinton been convicted of? Here's a clue NOTHING. Why? Because maybe nothing shes done is CRIMINAL. Have you ever thought of that.Trump knows this and has known this but used the hype to get a bunch of folks to vote for him. Why was the the Federal form of Government changed? Here's another clue It did'nt work as intended. To many using there office to benefit themselves and not the people that sent them there. The people sent a bunch of fellas to Washington to do there bidding for them and when they got there they did what ever they wanted and not what the people wanted. Take your own advice read a History book. Sound like someone you just voted for. Think about what you just admitted. He said first thing was jail Clinton and take the ACA down. He hasent even taken office and has said he wont do either. What else wont he do that he promised once he takes office. Your screaming about some folks following the Liberals blindly when your doing the same thing with Conservatives. Our form of Governing is not perfect but its still the best in this World if he screws us over then we get to vote him out in four years or possibly impeach him. What Socialist Country gets this power? Should this "old Man" quit bitchen NO because that's something else that makes this Country great we all get to Bitch without retaliation its a right that's given to all of us including you, him and me.

And yes, I borrowed terms and names from someone else. They fit, so wear them.
The Indy is only good for the puzzles anymore.
Time to debunk the Hazy Hurts again...
The short of it is this:
Your criminal girl Hillary lost. Get over it and kwityergritchin', old man.
The long of it is this:
Yes, the con man won, and he immediately has moved left to embrace the policies that your criminal girl Hillary and your socialist pals in Failuresville just love, so kwitchyergritchin', old man.
That, and you really need to crack open a real history book and learn the difference between the federal form of government we as a nation started with and kept until 1860 and the national form of government that we've had ever since (and screwed up the nation mightily along the way, too).
But then again, Hazy, you're a bitter old man socialist, so I don't expect any of that to ever happen. You're simply not bright enough.
So you're left to whining and complaining and engaging in typical liberal stereotypes, devoid of susbstance and full of crap.
So do us all a favor: kwitchergritchin', old man.
Time to address the Hazy Hurts...
"Yeah, we're still shocked and horrified. Yeah, writing those once-unspeakable words is weird and painful."
You're in your 70s. Why don't you grow up and act your age? Trump got elected because liberal smugness, including yours, got thoroughly rebuked. You're only horrified because you think you know what's best for people, and you clearly don't as the people have spoken such.
"Trump has embraced two apparently contradictory notions: to lower America's overseas military profile and increase defense spending."
They do not contradict at all. The cost savings from not being all over the entire planet will be reinvested in defending CONUS and our necessary possessions, not invading and occupations as your girl Hillary would do. It's called waging peace, something that Democrats like you often forget about--except when Republicans are in power.
"Interestingly, this neo-Keynesian economic stimulus program..."
Since when is giving or (road and gas) tax dollars back to us "neo-Keynesian", unless one is either so unversed in economics, or one thinks that government owns taxpayers' money, or both? Oh, wait, that's a liberal mantra again...
"Middle-aged white men often don't have marketable skills..."
You really are an idiot, aren't you? Most of the same defense sector that you commented about just above are exactly that demographic, the same skills folks that build your Internet and most of the innovations that the snowflakes and the liberals use without thinking. Come build and drive our satellites, program our mainframes, and repair our cars, then get back to us when you finally have a clue.
"But as one whose campaign may have benefited from Vladimir Putin's clever cyber warfare..."
Got news for you: Hillary's hacks, self-inflicted, as well as the DNC, weren't Russia. They were NSA. You just wanted an easy scapegoat tied to Trump to blame. In the classified world, of which you are not a part and never will be, we know better.
"Will he be stupid enough to begin mass deportations, kill off Obamacare without a seamless transition to Trumpcare, require electric utilities to switch from natural gas to coal or withdraw from NAFTA and send the economies of the United States, Canada and Mexico into lasting recession?"
Remove trespassers is stupid? More like enforcing property rights and rule of law. When did those become stupid?
Kill off ACA? Bring it on, because it was a fiasco in the first place. It's interesting how liberals are anti-corporation, except when it comes from transferring wealth from the middle class to the insurance corporations by ACA, while simultaneously putting more and more people on the government dime.
Switch to coal from gas? Got news for you: Most energy companies, including local CSU, mix it up with multiple energy technologies, because they understand what you don't: it takes all of them to get the job done.
Withdraw from NAFTA? I thought liberals were pro-union, and withdrawing from NAFTA will bring union manufacturing jobs back to the nation. Or are you just upset because it's not a Democrat doing it, and Ross Perot was correct all along?
Lasting recession? Don't know what planet you're on, but here on Earth the recession of 1990 never really ended, because the economic numbers that everyone allegedly relies on forgot the most important parts of food and fuel. But then again, liberals don't understand economics, so that lack of a clue isn't surprising.
"As he might say, it's simple. Borrow a shitload of money, put millions to work on thousands of infrastructure projects, preside over national prosperity and spend the weekends in New York City."
Well, once upon a time, the narrative was just as simple: Borrow a shitload of money, put millions to work on thousands of infrastructure projects, when that didn't help, drag the nation into a World War, and spend the weekends in Georgia. That was FDR. Once again, you're only complaining because it's a right statist and not your girl Hillary.
Hazy, it's long past time for you to hang it up. Sage, you aren't, and haven't been for decades. City Rage is more like it. Stick your rocking chair at the nursing home.
So glad the scab is off the wound! Trump is the quintessential American. These guys are all over Paris London Moscow. ..I tend to put public figures on a pedestal. But trump is a lot like me it turns out...hmmm...I've grabbed girls with impunity I've been racist in jest which is no better. Finally, we men can say YES! I AM A MAN, I AM OFTEN INAPROPRIATE, I AM SAVAGE! I AM A HUNTER OF THINGS AND PRAISE!
The people elected their ilk.
Then they all killed each other...
Please don't forget that at least one of those "old white men" is actively trying to provide some transparency, as well as listen to the citizens. We would do well to discard the labels and evaluate each council person individually.
Also, did creating a highly salaried position give us the Mayor we need? I'd say, no on both counts so far. I can't see providing a higher salary for council until they outline what is expected of them (vs. what was expected when it was initially determined that this is a part time position).
Dear chas - who thinks quotes from a person's reflection is poor writing;
The fact that the council is mostly old and almost always white is correct which means it is not ageism or racism. Something tells me that you are some where right now complaining about a PC culture ruining 'Merica.
It would be nice to see some of our younger small business owners get on council.
The homeless people take advantage of us taxpayers. All these panhandlers asking for money they need to get a job find a place and get off the streets I've seen it first-hand homeless man can get a job and get off the streets. That's what's wrong with our country now everybody wants to give stuff to poor people or people that didn't work for it. Why do these people think they're entitled if they didn't earn it or work for it. And no we don't need millennials AKA young people on City Council. This city would go hell in a handbag
A poorly written, over simplification of a complex problem, racism, ageism and name calling. Well done.
Fortunately, voters win elections, not special interest groups. I won my council seat four years ago without their endorsement, and I will do everything I can to win again next April.
