Re: “In the Flesh: Flight Thirteen (Formerly The Jagg) at Che's Lounge

When did criminal become a race? A wall designed to keep criminals out can't be racist. Too much time in college?

David, your second to last paragraph reads like something I read elsewhere. Did they copy you? I can't remember where I saw it first.

You are very welcome.

But wait until Sessions is approved tonight and the FBI hammer drops on DC. You are not going to believe what is in that swamp. Both sides will be shocked!

That's pretty funny coming from a Trump supporter, Rat.

Do you not grasp the irony?

What is it about speech that the left fears so much? Whatever it is makes them resort to name calling to try to accomplish their goals.

Is it simply youth on parade?

Lavender

No

Accept your official status as pissant for at least the next 8 years and generations when it comes to the Supreme Court.

Elections have consequences - remember that one?

Lavender "...not just black".

He's not. He's half white, the half he and his lemming liberals hate.

Re: “Rep. Martha McSally, Former Rep. Ron Barber, and Courage

David, could you please provide us with a link to your advocacy that Barbara La Wall appear in public debates with Joel Feinman, her opponent in the Democratic primary for Pima County Attorney?

She declined at least 7 requests made by 7 different groups who had very reasonable requests to make: to hear the candidates in a Democratic primary contest respond in a debate format to the public's questions about their perspectives on justice system issues in Pima County. Here's what Tim Steller wrote about it in the Star:
"For weeks, Pima County Attorney candidate Joel Feinman has been pointing out incumbent Barbara LaWalls unwillingness to debate him at a series of scheduled events. Feinman, a Democrat like the incumbent hes challenging, has even posted online a 'LaWall debate clock' showing the events he says shes ignored or declined to attend. [...] "Her reason veers dangerously close to a sense of entitlement: 'I believe the circumstances of this race are different. This is not an open seat. My record is well known.' "

"This is not an open seat." What an interesting comment. It seems to imply that there are parties behind the scenes -- not the voters in regularly scheduled primary and general elections -- who determine when a challenge to an incumbent is acceptable or needed.

(FYI, readers, here's how to tell whether a blogger's concern is really with candidates making themselves accessible to the public and with applying those standards uniformly to all comers: unlike David Safier, they will ask the same of incumbent Democrats and Republicans, and of challengers in both parties (and of challengers who are Greens, Libertarians, Independents....) If they don't, you can assume their real concern is with trashing a political adversary like McSally, not with ensuring the electorate has the opportunities it needs to understand candidates' positions and make informed choices in an election.)

Re: “Rep. Martha McSally, Former Rep. Ron Barber, and Courage

The ACA didn't "collapse under its own weight," like the fool above supposes- the insurance companies raised their rates because to them money is more important than people. The state-level GOP also refused the Medicaid expansion from the Feds because they also actually hate human beings too- especially poor, brown, black or female people- in any combination you like.

Why not invite Grijalva to take her place? He can explain how he disagrees with the Constitution.

The lunatic fringe are the Trumpeteers commenting. Amazing how they spent 8 years calling Obama every name in the book, but these assholes elect a President who's actually a criminal, not just black.

Re: “Rep. Martha McSally, Former Rep. Ron Barber, and Courage

Thank you for highlighting something we have been saying since the election. I would add that we made it very clear to the Congresswoman when we invited her to our Town Hall last Thursday (5 days before our public event) that we would be happy to work with her on a format for our event that would make her comfortable. Additionally, we are hiring TPD at our own expense to ensure her safety and ours. To keep the event civil and productive, our e-ticket requires that you agree to follow guidelines of civil discourse. We intend to have a list of ground rules on a large screen and 2 moderators that will help to enforce the ground rules. We communicated all of this to her and she hasn't bothered to reply except to call us operatives. If asking her to answer how she is representing us with the opportunity to ask follow up questions pointing out her own contradictory statements is an ambush, then maybe she is too fragile for this job.

Re: “Rep. Martha McSally, Former Rep. Ron Barber, and Courage

" she might consider the example of the two people who held the seat before her as she makes her decision."



David, one was shot point blank and the other could not win reelection. I would say that she has made a wise decision.

And in case you haven't noticed the ACA has collapsed under it's own weight.

Re: “Betsy, Go To the Principal's Office, and Take Your F Paper With You!

But those are the kind of people the Republicans want heading up the agencies. Knowing they will destroy them, not accomplish anything good. We now have an administration that is truly working to trash America, it news media and revoke many safety laws that protect us from the rich. But since billionaires now control us under Trump, they will have the green light to be as corrupt as they want, as Trump as done
