I disagree. How many watchdog organizations have ever reported on Hillary's emails on her private server with our lying President. ("I didn't know she had one. I found out on TV news just like the rest of you")
Only the honest ones.
The Pima County Watchdog and the Ally Defense Initiative (ADI) are both propaganda machines for Ally Miller. If it was truly a watch dog organization, they would have had an issue with her conducting almost 100% of her business via private email. Even when good happens in this county, the ADI and Ally Miller are right there to degrade it. It's her scorched earth method to destroy everything in her path so she kind try and look like a savior later. It's pathetic. Class is something this woman doesn't have an ounce of.
Hail to us, we are TW!
We can fracture the time/space continuum!
"we'll get in touch with winners today (Thursday, Oct. 20) and tomorrow (Friday, Oct. 20)"
I want to know how you're going to pull THAT one off! A Combination of time travel/time compression?
Amazing show! First time I've seen Television since circa 1980 in New York City - had their 2 albums as a teenager in late 70's - still have them on vinyl! Tom & Johnny were sick! Better than I expected
! Not going through motions at all - actually draw dropping for most part! Was hoping to hear "Ain't That Nothin'" but I'm not complaining at all!
While I do not disagree that Chuck Huckelberry has been an abject failure, Miller is a crazy, paranoid bitch who has no business running a shift at a Circle K let alone one of the Pima County districts. Bat shit crazy would be putting it mildly. She does absolutely nothing for the people of her district or the county and is every bit as corrupt as she thinks everyone she hates is. Fortunately for us, she just hasn't had the power to do anything.
Nice rant, Adiba! What a beautiful child you have.
No rant on the unclean, abusers of disabled folks' parking spaces is complete without a mention of the UCLA football team of ~ 1999 http://articles.latimes.com/1999/jul/10/lo…
On another note, I would imagine that most handicapped people would give most anything, including their special placard, to be able to park 200 yards away from their destination and walk without pain.
Huckleberry is the only one we didn't vote for and he has all the power When some one questions him he doesn't like it or so it appears
What, Again needs to start taking the medication again.
I absolutely loved it.
Have no misgivings about the title. It is what it is Adiba.
For those who question Adiba's writings, or possible reactions to said infractions,
Know that unless you have been a caretaker or parent to a child differently-abled, or uniquely-abled,
You simply cannot understand in full the frustration that comes with being at the end of people's indifference, thoughtlessness, and calloused cowardice.
Her indignation is Just. It is righteous.
Don't be that guy!
The roads are crumbling and poverty is rampant. Chuck Huckleberry and Raul Grijalva are 100% responsible. How many decades will it take for them, and the liberals that support them, to accept responsibility?
The voters need to adopt the goal of removing Huckleberry. One only need look at the lack of financial oversight of the current Sheriff's office to ask, "what is going on here?" Let's see if the FBI indicts others.
Easy for you to say.
Superficial without merit on any of the topics. Records should be electronically retained and a simple search. If not we are paying and not what we are getting what we pay for as far as records keeping.
You are right, Rick Spanier, Safier is not that kind of animal (the non-partisan kind). However, he often tries to frame his blog posts as though he is. In this one, for example, he pretends the issue is patronage hiring and firing. For the benefit of the occasional new reader who may at first be led to believe that what they see in these blogs is noble discourse produced by a reliable defender of sound practices in the management of public institutions, it's good when the comment streams call Safier out on his partisan hackery, so thank you for being one of those who has done so repeatedly and effectively. (Nice image of the manatee and the four minute mile.)
Safier's real motives are a mystery. It's clear what he can be expected to do: defend Pima Democratic Party candidates and the lines of argument being used to promote their continuing ability to manage Tucson's beleaguered public institutions, no matter how grave and obvious their misuse of public office has been. And the flip side: attack Republican office holders for doing the same things he pulls punches on when Democratic office holders do them.
But why? Commenters joke that he is motivated by getting dinner invitations to the Grijalvas' or appearances on Anne-Eve Pedersen's now defunct television program, but what's the real reason? I suspect it may be something similar to the argument made in a book I came across recently which defended the legacy of the Tammany Hall machine in NYC: "Tammany's corruption was real, but so was its heretofore forgotten role in protecting marginalized and maligned immigrants in desperate need of a political voice." (Machine Made: Tammany Hall and the Creation of Modern American Politics).
How about it, David? Care to fill us in? Maybe you could do an article on the legitimate role that lies, patronage, and graft can and should play in protecting the oppressed -- when it's people belonging to the right political party who practice them. Or you could write a review of the above-mentioned book saying just where you agree and disagree. At least then what you write in these blogs would be an HONEST representation of what you ACTUALLY believe, which is clearly NOT that lies, patronage and graft and those who practice them have no legitimate role in our public institutions, since you just endorsed two candidates for the Board of a public school district who were involved in this:
and who work in concert with a fellow Board member who did this:
Thanks for the eye opener about "wrong."I'll have to pay more attention to my thought process.
Expecting Safier to be bipartisan is like betting on a manatee to run a four minute mile. It would be amazing but not likely.
You had me at "Asshat kind of girl"- thank you for your advocacy. You and Emory are both amazing humans.
Politicians need New Age music most of all; opens the mind, chills you out. Listen to Shadowfax, Secret Garden, Fiona Joy, Al Conti, Lawrence Blatt... and then tell me it's not beautiful, hi-quality music.
