Regina Romero is another twit that caters to special interest groups who break the law, rather that what is good for the city as a whole. This city is also one of the poorest cities of its size in the U.S. That shows that our City Council are inept and negligent for this failure.
Funny take on Andy Tobin in the Phx New Times. Tobin is so sick of DC that he wants a job there. Also very silly looking in a cowboy hat.
The undocumented immigrant movement has developed into a very savvy group with their smart phones and clandestine meetings teaching the methods of social unrest. Imagine how much better their homelands would have been if they had tried to improve their way of life there. But it is easier to collapse the republic rather than stay home and fix those problems.
Has anyone thought that the TPD incident in front of the church was a set up. Either by the police or by the pro-illegal alien church members? The TPD chief is probably with the church members. (How's that for enforcing the laws!)
Those three "Democrats" are Repukelicans in democrat clothes. Nothing changes in Arizona - the lunatics run the asylum. Jim Click is a bozo and Andy Tobin is "Yes" man. Ron Barber is spineless TWIT.
Is "acerbate" the correct verb there?
Just look at all the comments. Fools elect fools to run a town into the ground. How foolish.
Uhlich's record speaks for itself. She has done nothing for this city except cater to her special interest cronies. The liberals and anyone who voted for her cannot think for themselves and are idiots for blindly voting for her. Tucson deserves what it gets, which is the same old song and dance.
I continue to reflect that Buehler-Garcia's changed signs this go around backfired on him. The attempt to defraud the voters into thinking he was Hispanic by emphasizing the Garcia part of his name apparently fooled no one, and also shows a contempt for the Hispanic voter's ability to select a candidate in so many ways. Don't act like the voters are stupid, people.
Whatever watered down, token gesture, non-discrimination act that gets begrudgingly passed will receive no teeth, funding or active enforcement. In a right to work state there are no worker protections, just ask the AG's Ofc. what percent of civil rights victims' claims ever get investigated or eventually find justice through their office? (almost none) I am a amazed that the the AG's Ofc. isn't sued daily for gross negligence and dereliction of duty.
Dear cempiremtn, do you actually live in Tucson, or one of the bastions of Libertarian/"Tea Party" enclaves like Saddle Brooke or Oro Valley? If you actually live in Tucson, you might consider moving, I'm sure us "Liberals" wouldn't miss you...
franklymydears .....As long as the whole city votes for individual Ward Candidates, Tucson will continue to be the Liberal S**thole that it is. Why don't we have the whole State vote for each county Supervisor...hmmm?
Don't mean to hog this space but can't help musing about our junior Senator's mind change on ENDA. Within a few days he went from attempting to prevent it being debated to voting 'aye' after what I would call cosmetic changes. Does anyone have a photo of him standing outside the Capitol with a moist index finger held aloft to check the breeze?
Do the Republican losers in the City Council elections plan ever to concede, or is that asking too much?
Regarding ENDA, I wonder why CD 2 wannabes would doubt its value, its reasonableness, its apparent necessity in order to outlaw some forms of discrimination against their fellow Americans. Martin hasn't read the proposed legislation but is confident it's not necessary, is best left to the states and after all, we've got the Constitution. And he's a white male of a certain age who perhaps sincerely believes nobody in this country is treated any less fairly than he has been. McSally says now she was a brand new candidate when she responded to the Center for Arizona Policy survey in 2012 and would have to review it to know whether she'd still answer the same way. Go for it, Colonel. Review and let us know what you think now. Now in 2013, after 22 months of non-stop campaigning, she's saying: ""I'm sure there are state and local laws at some level that make sure there is no employment discrimination regardless of what the issue is. So what I would ask is, legally, what gap is this filling that is not already in existence?" Seems to me that's saying she still hasn't done her homework and in the last sentence I've quoted doesn't even make grammatical, much less legal, sense. I can hardly wait to read what the latest entry in the race, Shelley Kais, has to say about ENDA. Stay tuned.
Let's see now, do I have it right? Jeff Flake sought election to what we used to consider the world's greatest deliberative body -- that's the U. S. Senate in case you wondered -- in order to vote twice in his first session to not deliberate two of the most serious issues to come before that body this year. That would be the attempt to discuss bringing some sanity to our national firearms policy, which he helped stifle and the effort to outlaw employment discrimination against GLBT Americans, which will be debated over his 'nay' vote. Almost makes one wish we had one-year terms for senators.
I offer up this sage quote for Mr. Nintzel and the other reporters at the Weekly; "You're entitled to your own opinion, but not your own facts." Senator D. P. Moynihan. Based on a lot of the material I have read lately in the Weekly, this is very appropriate. If you want to report, then do so, if this is nothing more than a series of opinion pieces, then label them as such. For too many opinions are portrayed as fact.
I think many consutants lie about theirexperience w DSS.
My thought is that many "consultants and lobbists" are lieing to the developers and builders about the effectiveness of their services. It could be Development Services provides everyone about the same standard of service but that in the interests of bilking their clients those "consultants and lobbists" have constructed a standard set of false-to-fact talking points to be used when the occasion demands.
Wouldn't it be fitting for one of the many who voted for Supervisor Miller on the mistaken assumption that she was relatively qualified by intelligence and integrity would now organize a recall campaign so that her ward might have another chance to be represented by someone who actually is qualified by intelligence and integrity? But perhaps it will be better in the long run -- that's another 3+ years -- for the Board to have an albatross with tea bag earrings aboard.
