Re: “Yet Another Rematch? Ron Barber Will Announce His 2016 Plans on Zona Politics on Sunday Morning

Barber doesn't inspire much, and the AZ Dems haven't seemed interested in bringing up anyone else since he stepped in to fill Gabby's seat. God knows,however, that I will vote for ANY Democrat over ANY Republican in this state.

Re: “Two’s a Crowd

Clueless on that the Medical Card only protects the dispensary if I am pulled over and have 2 ounces in my car I am legal to possess it does not need to state where obtained the Marijuana. Very Very Bad information there

Re: “Two’s a Crowd

John Brown; Methadone is legal simply because it is listed as a medical administered with case history and pharmaceutical manufactured and covered by Insurance so the Insurance carrier picks up the tab. If the Methadone dependent patient had to pay a humongous tax and look for specials, Yea that analogy is all wet. So what this legalization is saying you can only get methadone manufactured here by local people and if you are caught with California methadone you could be prosecuted. BULL on your idea of what a medical covers I will take my chance with someone with knowledge.

Re: “UA President to Release Tuition & Fees Recommendation Tomorrow

And any tuition increase should be clearly labeled as the Ducey Tax. Maybe more of them kids will vote in the next election.

I don't always share the same views with Tucson Weekly, but I do commend its existence supporting our great country in its own views and utilizing our country's greatest gift. The freedom of speech.
I commend all those who post regardless of their values and views as well. Everyone here whether they know it or now is trying to make America a better country through each post. I hope when you take our freedoms into consideration bestowed upon us by the efforts and sacrifices of our fore fathers struggles to make every generation from then a better tomorrow to inherit . You might not realize it but it is our duty to do so. Our nation struggles with conflict daily. It is here we strive to rise to the occasion to meet with civility and sincerity to discuss to reach a new plateau for our country's benifit. If you are reading this. Our country has great citizens. You are one of them.

Re: “UA President to Release Tuition & Fees Recommendation Tomorrow

How about we charge the President of the U of A for her overly expensive unnecessary remodel of her office? When they stop this idiocy and then demand tuition increases we have a problem from the top.

Re: “UA President to Release Tuition & Fees Recommendation Tomorrow

I assume you by "POTUS" mean the President of the Unites States. I must disagree with you inasmuch as the current occupant of the White House is incredibly overpaid for his skill set (0) (personal opinion). And too, lets not forget the many millions of $ in perks the tax payers bestow on the office or President, which you and I would be required to claim their fair value as taxable income. To be sure these are justified, but nonetheless they are essentially tax free for him, as well as those before and after.

High skill levels demand high compensation, as so easily in the sports and entertainment world. The market is the driving force. Those who bring true value deserve and receive a commensurate salary.

The same is true in the world of exceptional University Deans, highly qualified CEOs and successful fund managers. I have absolutely no problem with those who bring true vale to their institutions, companies or clients substantial sums - even millions per year. The market rules, as it should and real talent is rewarded. We are not all created equal and, in general our compensation reflects the value of our personal contribution, be it chosen of a matter of circumstances.

Yes, I am a part of the much misunderstood and unfairly maligned 1%, but it took many years, much sacrifice and untold hours of work to get here, though it was never a goal. Even yet at 80, a 40 hour week is indeed a rarity and decisions I make are very often very forward looking and tens of hours are spent in gaining and understanding of the ramifications for the company and equally important the employees welfare, the betterment of the country and society as a whole, before a decision is taken. Given I do most of my work abroad there are also a number of personal risk involved. I believe that most all of use earn based on ability in our current position, performance and capabilities; albeit there are exception in both directions.

There are many profitable and successful Cold Stone Creameries operating. Your constant criticism show an ignorant bias.

Re: “Danehy

My friends and I were on an all white high school track team in 68 and thought the protest was great. We all got into trouble pushing black gloves on the floor of our classrooms all the time. It was a symbol for us of defiance. Their protest was for all of us, just not for black power. Norman's story was tragic for a great man.

Re: “Doug Ducey to Board of Regents: Cut Administrative Expenses to Keep Universities Affordable

Cuts to administration are most welcome. The bloat at the administrative level of all schools: K-12, community college, and university, is absurd, wasteful and unnecessary.

Re: “The Smoothie Factory Is Open Now Right by UA Campus

If it's made with turbinado sugar, forget it. Doesn't matter that turbinado is refined less than ordinary granulated sugar. You can make a perfectly good, and sweet, smoothie without added sugar.
