With all the dislikes that Chuckj and I racked up, I think tomorrow I'll open up a Kool-Ade stand !!
Perhaps we could just paraphrase the 1964 presidential election slogan that the Democrats provided for Barry Goldwater, "In your guts you know they're nuts"
There seems to be a point everybody, including Tom, is missing. Some people simply cannot learn a second language, ever. Some people are polyglots who speak many different languages fluently. I speak my native language fluently and know enough spanish, german, and italian to get by, but my father absolutely has been unable to learn spanish other than a few words (he knows what a burrito is), even though he lives in San Antonio, TX. It's not simply a matter of choice whether one learns a second language. It's like being tone deaf. How many people do you know who cannot carry a tune, or match a note with their voice? It's not that they choose not to (double-negative), it's that they simply do not have the capacity to do so. Illegal immigration is inevitable when two countries exist next to each other. Anybody remember the immigration problems between East and West Germany? No language barrier there, but the hatred held by West Germans for East was palpable. All the same rationale applied, "East Germans are taking away jobs from West Germans", and "Us Sneeches have stars on ours".
The money quote: "Ray Carroll is the asymptotic inverse of Will Rogers—he never met a person who didn't like him. If you can't get along with Ray Carroll on some level, you're flunking Humanity." As the former chair of the County Democratic Party & someone who frequently disagrees with Ray, I really like him personally and respect him. But hell, I said the same thing about Frank Antenori a few weeks back. Maybe I'm slipping. There are plenty of people that I disagree with politically, but personally like and respect. Ally Miller isn't one of them. She's just batshit crazy and no help to her constituents.
C'mon Chuckj. All because he's president that doesn't mean he's suppose to be responsible for anything. Hell, if he didn't read about in the papers he might not even know he got re-elected.
Did someone replace Tom this Week, I almost agree with him and found his article somewhat better than his singing.
Of course the obligatory stab at "rich white men" the only well defined class, along with southern men, that it's ok to publicly hate on. But hey, he's got to please his readers, half of whom can't ever be rich white men, and the other half that theoretically could but won't.
A great question Tom: When a Screwup Screws Up, why is it always someone else's fault?
The best description of Barack Obama that has ever appeared in the Weekly.
Americans are last in line with Obama. Hell with our veterans there isn't even a line. Shame on lazy American voters. They allowed this fraud to get in office.
Don Key: It came from Danehy and feels like a Danehy piece to me. I'm not sure we pay enough to make a ghostwriter worthwhile.
"You have to want an education before you can get an education."
Truer words were never spoken! I teach a few classes at Pima and it is always discouraging when a student just stops showing up and never communicates that they are leaving and why.
Just this summer, we told students that we are being asked to enforce the homework requirement and one student flat out said they aren't going to do homework. That student has never showed up since nor bothered to officially drop.
The homework was very onerous, watching some videos on the subject and writing a few lines telling us what they got out of them.
We are supposed to engage the students and keep them interested but there are always some that just want to coast by. I've even had students ask what was the minimum work they need to do to get a C.
It's a two way street and we try our best to make the classes interesting and informative but the student needs to put in some effort and show some interest as well.
On the other hand, it is always a pleasure when students hang around after class and ask questions and want more resources on the topic. We get those as well and they are the ones that make us keep coming back every semester.
Danehy is misinterpreting Morales' comment, I believe. Her description is really to illustrate the limited expectations and opportunities for a Latina girl at that time and place, and how that has changed.
Ray Carrol is a dolt in lock step towards a county pension only stopping from time to time to rig some graft for himself and his friends.
Ally can detect this like a dog who returns to it's back yard and knows everything that has happened there in the last two hours.
Danehy did not write this June 26, 2014 piece
This article is fun to read.
Last week's edition of the New Weakly had an Op-Ed piece under Danehy's Byline. He didn't write it.
I'd be happy to 'give' southern Arizona back to Mexico, but we do live in a democratic republic, so I suggest we put it to a vote. And I'm willing to let ONLY the Mexicans in southern Arizona vote. Specifically ONLY those who are here illegally! Sure, they'd return it.
Actually it was the early HohoKam who were here first. (Not counting Mastadon Hunters who were here REALLY early). The Hohokam fell and/or moved away. The local Tohono O'Dham were related to them (or moved in as they were moving out). They farmed here. The Apaches moved into the area but not in the Tucson Basin. The Apaches took the Sky Islands in southern Arizona and N. Mexico. The Spanish came in next. (Invaded) The Apaches fought like hell and actually caused the Spanish to build the Tucson Presidio. The Tohono O'Dham fought the Spanish off about 1751. Spanish came back.
We arrived. (invaded and bought) and then fought the Apaches hard until 1886.
And no they dont teach history in the TUSD.
You " stole " So. Az. from us??? I was sitting in a Jury Room lst year and overhead some Hispanics talk about this Baja Arizona stuff. One said to the other, " we're finally going to get it back without firing a shot." I couldn't believe it. In the 20th Century!! Don't they teach History in Tucson Schools? ( THAT was a stupid thing to say) Anybody?? Gadsden Purchase? What was bought and sold, when, for how much? Little history lesson, folks. As a former school teacher, in Jr. High, I actually had a young man tell me he was Mexican and then say he was born in a hospital in Tucson. I told him that made him an American. He said I was lying. LYING!! Next day, he came in and apologized, his mother said I was right. these days, I guess I should be glad he didn't shoot me.
Looks like the gutless bitch has a few partners.
Truth... Kryptonite to liberals.
As they say in geometry, Q.E.D.
I've been doing this for 3 years now. Time and time again I urged these fine libs to hit dislike under my comments. The more the merrier. Shows me I'm getting to them. But I always did something to earn them. Like calling Tom " Pulitzer Tommy" or refering to their president as Obummer. All I did here is state a fact. No rudeness or name calling. Yet this gutless bitch hit dislike without having the balls to explain why. Like I said the truth must have pissed him ( her ) off. We should compare pointy hats some day !!
This is the Tucson Weekly! I am surprised you only got one "dislike"! lol It's the haven of the Open Borders Progressive Liberal Creative Class. They think allowing millions of illegals in here is a good thing.
Stay strong CW13
