Pack got walloped .
Obama does everything primarily for its political effect rather than its merits. Obamacare was passed as his "legacy" legislation in spite of the fact that a majority of voters did not want it and which is why the Dems lost the House in the next election in 2010. Even laws passed by a "dysfunctional" Congress are better than rule by one man, regardless of the fact that he may be President. One obviously wants to be a member of a dysfunctional Congress to help fix it.
It is funny how she answers the questions just like Obama, without answering them. And yet so many of you buy into his responses and will criticize McSally's.
Britt is such a talented writer! I love that he shares his knowledge and love of language and words with us!
We all know legalize is Best
Thank you for your writings.
Fourteen years after it's initial publication, this story is STILL right on the mark, Tom.
Enjoy your Thanksgiving, but while on the way to or from wherever your holiday is celebrated, PULL YOUR HEAD OUT and pay attention to the roadway and everyone else using it.
Let me see if I have this right: When asked about the big picture, Colonel (Ret.) McSally's answers veer into particulars. When asked about such particular items as a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrants or the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, she answers that the immigration system as a whole needs to be addressed. And of course she disagrees with whatever President Obama has done and it has all been done in view of an election.
In a real world -- are we living in one? -- to say "I prefer that these things go through Congress, even though Congress is dysfunctional" seems like saying it's better that nothing be done rather than something positive be done in an irregular manner by someone with whom I'm bound to disagree.
And why would she want to become a member of a dysfunctional Congress anyway?
Still not ready for prime time.
boring! bring back adam!
I'm a little confused. This story has Tom Prezelski's name at the top and Tom Danehy's byline. So who wrote it and if it was Tom P, why not just give him the byline.
As to the content, I'm disappointed that little effort seems to have been expended in trying to discover why Barber has cast the votes that have served little positive purpose, unless of course in giving him bipartisan credibility for his ongoing effort to work with the House majority. On the issue of progressive candidacies, should we not remember that old CD8 was and current CD2 is moderate to conservative territory in which moderate [by today's standards] Republican Jim Kolbe won handily for 22 years and moderate Democrat Gabrielle Giffords won three times and has been succeeded by another moderate Democrat. As I've been telling friends for years, Raul Grijalva couldn't win this district.
I'm not sure how Jeff Latas got dragged into this essay, but in 2006 he was a non-factor and a bore as a candidate, with his impenetrable power point presentation and total lack of charisma. Latas hope Jeff will not again attempt to run.
All in all, sort of strange little essay.
I don't patronize the Flores' establishments - they are way overrated.
Great review ha! Loved the Wooden Nickel! Review witty funny! Keep up the great work Mr. Henry
Can always count on the Bambie to open early 6am! That was Holly's statement we are going to to Church! Bambie is best place! No one bothers any one that's a place to go drink in peace.
stop the lies,,,legalize !!!
If you think Mr. Head's and The Shelter are dive bars, you need to go drinking with someone who knows where the dive bars are. Hint: dive bars don't have shitty Flash websites like the Shelter's, or $5 pints.
"Found memories of the 60s?" I didn't know they were lost!
ahhhh... but how can you no have The District Tavern on this list?
I sure miss the Buffet Bar and Crock Pot and those nasty good hot dogs!
Anyone can get e-cig juice with zero mg nicotine, at least at Freedom Smoke. But how do you regulate that? The two are a little harder to tell apart than water & vodka. Freedom Smoke at least self-regulates: nobody under 18 is allowed in the store, nor to my knowledge have they ever been. I know many "vapers" but only a few choose nicotine-free; there's one non-smoker who wants to vape socially for novelty (300+ flavors), and ex-smokers who've used an e-cig to successfully taper nicotine use down to nothing but have yet to kick the vaping habit entirely. I doubt e-cigs were invented to give minors an alternative to candy (although propylene glycol may well be better for their teeth), but as William Gibson so elegantly put it, "the street finds its own uses for things."
Wasted life anyone? I've enjoyed four of these five places, some more often than others, and all more often than is good for me.
I am shocked, SHOCKED, that Mr. "Jason" would post such hateful words on this comment board. It is a well known fact that haters are projecting their own self concept when they go off on rants.
I am a rather conservative person. I am no fan of illegals. But as far as sexuality goes, live and let live.
