Re: “Grass Attack

Sorry, we already have our plans made to attend the Dillinger event. They should have scheduled the buffelgrass thing on another day.

Social safety nets are flowing from the Obama campaign machine. How many more handouts are necessary to destroy the middle class?

Elections with only a 37% turnout have consequences. Ours is to live in Republican Governor Hell for another 4 yrs.

Re: “The Never-Ending Scrutiny

TXjesse: Your abject ignorance of history and xenophobia are palpable. And truly sad to behold. The history that was taught in TUSD Mexican American Studies classes and is now taught in Ethnic Studies classes IS American history, from a Hispanic perspective. And the Texas revolution was fought by Anglos who entered Texas (both legally and illegally) AND Tejanos who lived in Texas long before the Anglos arrived. If you knew about Arizona history, you would know that several members of the Esparza family - some of who were at the Alamo (look up Gregorio Esparza, Goober) when it fell - relocated from San Antonio to Tucson in the 1850s and remained closely tied to William S. Oury, Tucson rancher, Pima County sheriff and community leader, who was ALSO at the Alamo during the siege and who was ordered out of the Alamo as a courier to seek help on Feb. 29, 1836. Perhaps you should read REAL history, not the sanitized bullshit mythology that impedes a real understanding of what went on in the southwest. If you did, you would be aware that Hispanics, who welcomed Anglos and fought with them against the Mexican central government, were treated as second class citizens by those Anglos after Texas became independent, You would learn how Hispanics were subjected to segregation and treated with contempt for many years after Texas achieved statehood. You would learn how a WWII Hispanic Medal of Honor winner was refused service in a Texas restaurant because he was a "Mexican" and how a Hispanic soldier killed in the Philippines during WWII was denied a funeral in Texas after the war because he wasn't white. And your pathetic ignorance of our neighbors to the south is just as obvious. If you think that Americans don't flood Mexico, you have never been to Rocky Point during spring break. Nor have you seen the thousands of gringos vacationing at Rocky Point, Cholla Bay, Guaymas and San Carlos. Nor have you seen the American expatriate colonies in cities all over Mexico. It is also obvious that you have not grown past referring to Americans of Hispanic descent as "Mexicans." All in all, your comments consign you to the less than illustrious pantheon of ignorant-ass Gooberdom.

Re: “The Never-Ending Scrutiny

Why should Tucson schools teach history that is Mexican propoganda? Do you think Mexico teaches history from the U.S. viewpoint? Our ancestors didn't fight for independence from Mexico so Mexican viewpoint studies could be taught in the United States.

Was this article in TW because the editor is Mexican and finds this subject appealing?

Remember the Alamo! Remember Goliad! And remember the Battle of San Jacinto where Texians whipped the corrupt, barbaric, show no quarter, slaughtering Mexicans under Gen. Santa Anna.
Mexico is a problem for the U.S. and apparently always will be because their govt. is so inept, corrupt and unstable.
If one wants to know more about Mexico, I recommend reading the excellent book, "Mexico" by James Michener, that includes the background and history of why Mexico is the corrupt country it is.
We can learn from it for ourselves and guard against becoming like Mexico.
Mexicans flood across our borders, but U.S. citizens don't flood over to Mexico. Even the Mexicans don't want to live in Mexico because of the corruption and crime. That is really all you need to know about "Mexican studies."
What are "Mexican studies" trying to teach and why?
And who is trying to promote "lack of education" for Mexicans? They need all the education they can handle.

Re: “Darkness Visible

I read here that all individuals, from any side, should be brought out into the light of day. I have no doubt that both sides have the opportunity to swing an election with dark weasel money, but to just state liberals have (specific) bad actors too misses the point. Put it all out there for all to see, and then we will know who floods the airways just before an election. I really want to know who is behind every single money transfer - BEFORE we all vote in an election.

Re: “Darkness Visible

When I first heard that corporations were people and could donate political money as individuals, I said to myself, "Ok, just so we know who donated And how much. Who got the money." Then, I learned that corporations, as well as individuals, could hide these things easily in a PAC type legal entity and none of it would ever be known before an election. From every angle, that's just wrong.

Re: “The Never-Ending Scrutiny

Those silly Az politicians thinking will change, say around..election time when the unsuspected, but fast growing political might of those they are trying to "keep in line" through lack of education, suddenly find themselves the "minority" with it, it will happen, just a matter of time!

Education=power, all USA citizens should want to build our youth, not limit them!

Re: “Darkness Visible

I imagine that this thing will evaporate when they discover that there is a lot of unaccounted for union resources around election-time ( e.g. the " ground game") . Let's hope the dems think that they lost the Senate because there was some sinister financial force....and not because The chosen One and Harry Reid were inept.

Re: “Wild Horses

I totally agree with the above opinion. We live on Mars Rd. & everytime we pass by this place, it makes me sick. The horses stalls have not been cleaned for quite a long time & we've never seen anyone taking the time to take the animals, dogs & horses, for a walk. They are fed & given water but that's about all the care that the Brunos give them. Other neighbors have told us that they have reported them to the ASCPA, Humane Society & even the television company KGUN 9 but nothing was ever resolved. What does it take to get these people investigated & shut down. Surely there must be someone that has some control over these situations if the animal abuse organizations can't or won't do anything. They, Brunos, will not adopt out the animals either. Is that because they make money for every animal they take in? Maybe they won't adopt them out because their reputation has gotten around & no more animals are coming to them. I wish I had the land & money to take the animals in but all I can do is add this comment. Hopefully a lot of people will see this & more will add their voices.

Re: “Forced Submission

Her personality & wishful statement does not make her a terrorist. Most postal window clerks I deal with are slow, incompetent, fat, lazy, & exhibit very low productivity & speed. Bottom line is that the sentencing based on Mary Elizabeth's statement was unjust. I'd be pissed at the system too.

Good, because the unemployment among poorer and less educated Americans is zero, right?

Every illegal has a story like this. It's just like everybody in jail is innocent. "Journalists" lap it up.

Re: “The Big Don’t Ask

The truth is she IS comitting a crime. She is an illegal immigrant. I am a LEGAL immigrant, as are my children. Why should I have had to go though many legal hoops to be here legally, and then have someone feel like they have the right to be here just bease they decided to move here illegally some years ago. It's BS!
