The letter supporting trump did not surprise me. It's understandable that some people would support what trump campaigned on. He did bring to my attention something that I have heard a lot of lately, usually in much ruder and cruder terms, that the last 8 years have been so horrific. That our president has been such a harm to us. The economy saved from one the worst economic collapses the country has ever faced and with an opposition party trying to sabotage him at every turn. The price of gas far lower than the previous 8 years. Unemployment is up, wages are rising for the first time in decades. Illegal immigration is down and he has deported more than every other president in history combined. Crime is down, the murder of police officers is the lowest in 100 years. The number of people killed here in the USA by terrorists is 1/30th, outside a 1/15th the last Administration. He passed the GOP's own ACA. What's so terrible?
I'm sure the comments will all be calm, well-reasoned and respectful.
Cdub, they ignore laws they don't like. It will always be a bad ending, but they don't get it.
That made sense.
So tell me please, what's wrong with obeying the law?
Oh my goodness, CW 13. You must be one of those Russian hackers that I've heard about. An honest to goodness Marxist that detests baths.
Blessed are those who obey the law, for they shall be welcome with open arms. Amen.
I am proud to live amongst immigrants who rise above racism and hate. I think throughout all this we have come to realize that nasty, sad, and close minded people who have long plauged our nation still linger in the shadows of God's Glory. GLORY that welcomes all, no one is excluded. Well pray for the people who choose to spew hate in these comments. Blessed are the meek for they shall see the Kingdom of God. Amen, Amen
U-HAUL reservations to CA are soaring. They will soon add a surcharge on one way rentals.
Granted some may be repeat dislikers ,but I still ended up with 110 of them. I assume they all read my comments so I guess they do. How can I not be full of myself when all I do week in and week out is demolish liberals like you.
Get over yourself CW 13.
Do you really believe that people come to this site to read your rants?
6 more. The defense rests.
It's been 2 days now since I first made my comment on the subject. To the 21 gutless wonders who hit dislike but made no attempt to say why, I want thank you so very much. You have proved me right and you wrong. Not one of you is willing to argue with what I said. Probably because you can't. Notice not a word from Peabrain. Timmy the cat girl, Vietnam veterinarian ,that clown with the camera that I always destroy or anyone else in my " fan club". I would also like to say thanks in advance to those that haven't hit dislike but will. Too easy, way too easy.
My name is Willy Bernhard Bils. I have a law degree from the University of Oregon and passed the Arizona bar exam in 1991, after which I was, for many years, a civil rights privacy rights, and consumer rights advocate in Tucson, with regular local impact, some regional impact, and occasional national impact on such issues between 1990 and 2012. The Weekly, through the efforts of Dave Devine, Emil Franzi, and James Reel, among others, was responsible for publishing information I provided it about the problems with the Tucson Police Department and local privacy and other public interest issues between 1998 and 2003. The Weekly's coverage of these issues was of great benefit to the public during that time. Since then, the Weekly has provided far less coverage of these issues, perhaps since TPD has undergone substantial reform and Americans have been led by elements in the government and corporate-controlled news media to falsely believe their privacy is hopelessly compromised since the rise of the American police state caused by the passage of the Patriot Act, the creation of the Department of Homeland Security, and other "terrorism protection" measures taken by all government agencies and virtually all major corporations (primarily involving the FBI and data mining "fusion centers" which have collected government and corporate data since the attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on September 11, 2001). In fact, since that time, Americans throughout the Nation have remained disturbed about police misconduct (which has reduced in Tucson, but still needs to be monitored),privacy issues, and corporate abuses, although at a far lower level than occurred prior to 9/11. It remains the public's duty in Tucson to continue to bring these issues to the attention to reporters at all local news media agencies, to a new crop of reporters who must be educated to take an interest in these issues, such as their predecessors Peter Linton-Smith, Morgan Loew, Chip Yost, Som Lisaius, and Bud Foster at KOLD-TV, and others at KGUN-TV, KVOA-TV, and KUAT-TV, the reporting staff of the Arizona Daily Star (editorial editor Jim Kiser, primarily), and local radio talk shows including The John C. Scott Show (KTUC, KTKT, and KVOI) and the former Inside Track program (hosted by political expert and fervent American patriot, Emil Franzi). This is of even greater concern since the election of Donald Trump as President of the United States, whose inauguration may bring even more Draconian measures than those taken since 9/11, despite his promises to the contrary. Do not rest in working for the protection of your civil and consumer rights in America, for they are the backbone of what has made America great since 1776. For more information on how to accumulate data and to bring new stories on these issues to the the press and government, please contact me at the Center for the Study of Privacy Rights, P.O. Box 44326, Tucson, AZ 85733; telephone: (520) 302-2797; Email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you.
I gotta agree with CW13. I like to see all sides and make up my own mind.
I don't follow any party line, I'm independent (can think for myself).
I like to hear from both sides. If you don't like it I strongly suggest that you blow it out your ass. Besides, it's always good for a laugh.
Why do right wingers read the TW if they hate liberal views? What do they expect? There's plenty of periodicals that cater to their philosophy. And its the same people week after week. Simply amazes me.
Not to worry.
The "dream" is over in 8 days!
The answer to world poverty and oppression is not for everyone to move to the United States. There are probably 3 billion people on Earth just as deserving as the people written about in the article. Obviously they can't all move here. More poor people are born every year than currenly immigrate to the United States.
Besides, why is the United States a safe place to move to? The rule of law. What does illegal immigration degrade? The rule of law. Whoops!
But the folks who write these articles get to feel good about themselves without actually doing any hard work and that's what liberalism is all about.
If I were a citizen of a foreign country and I wanted to move to the USA why should I go through the trouble and cost of legal immigration when there are all these gullible cities offering defacto citizenship for breaking the law?
Why? There is a good reason Tucson has become a political and economic backwater, truly we are the Detroit of the southwest.
President Obama just put up a Cuban wall.
