Re: “A conversation With Diane Ravitch At UA Sunday, December 14

Tin foil hats are available for a $50 donation.

I will be out of town that day, but I wonder if somebody would ask her to expound on the theory that competition is the ONLY thing that made the Post Office better.

And they are much better.

Re: “Is Congress Now Incapabable of Handling Immigration Reform?

Clifford, this is just like robbing a store, attempting to take a gun from a police officer and then burning down the town because the criminal caused himself to be shot.

The line for legals sits still. We coddle the illegals. That's what is broken. It's DC's fault.

Re: “A Slice of Arizona

It would be nice to also have had a "learning lesson" about availability of beer and wine and prices for those plus the salad offerings. Also, given all the hype about the place, how hard is it to get into? Did you have to wait? Was the place raucous, or could you carry on a conversation?

Re: “Noshing Around

I like the tacos at Calle Tepa. But I was disappointed when they started charging extra for a basket of chips. I understand that a self-serve system for chips will be abused, and people will just load up basket after basket (one reason why we can't have nice things). But for me it's the fine difference between a good value and not. It seems they could have tried offering one small basket of chips with an order, keeping control of it instead of letting people run rampant.

Re: “Is Congress Now Incapabable of Handling Immigration Reform?

I keep hearing the same BS, the system is broken, really? when did it break? if you came here legally and went through the proper requirements and became a US citizen is the system broken? if you came here legally but let your visa elapse and now are an illegal or just crossed the border and are squatting here illegally is the system broken? No, but after years of letting millions upon millions of illegals stay here for 10+ years (and a large percentage still can't speak English) without doing nothing when they should have been rounding them up and deporting all illegals now we say the system is broken. it's not broken it's just not being enforced and that's the big problem. The system that's broken is this is politically motivated and only hurts the US citizen trying to make an honest living.

Re: “McCain: "I Know the Use of Torture Compromises That Which Distinguishes Us From Our Enemies"

No. What I wanted you to admit is that once again the POTUS has not enforced laws on the books but attempts to pass additional new laws while bypassing Congress.

Wait until this backfires on you.

Re: “Here's Your "Tucson Sucks" Article of the Week

Geographically the north of Tucson is awesome but urban planners will take care to turn the last land available like Oro Valley into an ugly tract housing/ strip malls urban sprawl.

Re: “McCain: "I Know the Use of Torture Compromises That Which Distinguishes Us From Our Enemies"

Detainee Treatment Act of 2006, sponsored by McCain signed into law by Bush, makes the use of water boarding illegal (Bush gave an exemption to the CIA). I am not sure how or why you would want Obama to do something that has already been done, that would be a waste of his time and our tax dollars. We do not need to pass the same law twice!

Obviously you suffer from substandard reading comprehension and communication skills, which is why you tried to change the subject. The problem with that approach is that the subject is YOU and you just provided the readers of this blog with more evidence that you are liar and lack the mental fortitude to admit when you are wrong.

Re: “McCain: "I Know the Use of Torture Compromises That Which Distinguishes Us From Our Enemies"

For the last six years Obama and the Senate could have passed legislation outlawing waterboarding...but they didn't. McCain would have even voted with the democrats again...

In fact Obama could have used his favorite method, executive order to outlaw it, just like he changed immigration laws,...but he didn't.

I can't wait to hear you guys whine when the Republican President in 2016 kicks up the EOs a notch and outlaws abortion, requires public schools to close, and cuts welfare by 50%.

You are going to wish you had opposed Obama and his lawless antics.

What comes around goes around.

What a really want a liberal to explain here is just how killing is more humane than keeping enemy combatants alive to get info that saves many others.

Are you really for killing innocents by drones?
