Re: “The People’s Weed

If it does not say #LEGALIZATION, then it's NOT legalization.

Re: “Mensa mini-quiz

Sorry "Mensambr", lease is right and you're definitely wrong. Palomino is the color of the horse. Here's wikipedia's entry on it. "Palomino is a coat color in horses, consisting of a gold coat and white mane and tail. Genetically, the palomino color is created by a single allele of a dilution gene called the cream gene working on a "red" (chestnut) base coat."

Re: “Mensa mini-quiz

I've taken the WAIS test and find it to be considerably more accurate than this. Frankly, this is nonsense. The test is extremely biased and completely excludes people from other countries. It also relies heavily on previously gained knowledge, that's not how you test intelligence. Someone who happens to love horses can get an extra point over someone who has zero interest in horses. That's ridiculous.

Re: “The People’s Weed

Rob Kampala of the MPP would like to have a nice chat with the people against his initiative, but he is to busy giving "breast massages" to his employees. Google it.

"This is telling children they should smoke marijuana like alcohol," Leibsohn says

No, no it's not. Did legalizing gay marriage make more people turn gay? Laws are not intended as teaching tools.

Re: “The People’s Weed

I will always support fewer legal hurdles to enjoying and consuming a naturally growing substance, but why are there laws governing its use in the first place? Do we regulate wheat? Wheat has many proven effects on humans, probably moreso than marijuana, but there isn't any national hue and cry over its use.

Re: “Day at the Track

What, Again...your handle should be What an Idiot.

Tucson...5th poorest city in the country, and What an Idiot must be DAMN proud of it. This sad excuse for humanity mentions this "fact" every other time they post.

And the "illegals"? If I were to believe What an Idiot, I can't walk 5 feet without bumping into one. Well, guess what, like everything else this maroon (thanks Looney Tunes!) says, it's obviously exaggerated to the point that it is now untrue and this blowhard has more than lost their credibility.

Go away, just as Old Pueblo Independent/Old Pueblo Veteran/Desert Patriot/whatever this one person is calling themselves these days has. (Praise the Lord!) Heck, you probably are all the same LOSER keyboard athlete typing from your mom's basement. Please, just go away.

Re: “Day at the Track

Under fascist liberal rule for decades, Tucson is a dump and doesn't deserve the sport.

5th poorest city in the country, and DAMN proud of it.

More soccer fields? For whom, the overwhelming majority of children in Tucson are illegals.

Oh, I forgot, that IS the dream - to be just like Meheeecooo and all subjects to the Grijalva's and the white guilt liberals that hate America.

Re: “Day at the Track

Nate, you're an ignorant, uninformed, pseudo-elitist. Your comments illustrate how little you know about the sport and the wonderful, hard-working people who earn their living at it.

Re: “Day at the Track

I never had any interest in watching abused horses run around a track for money. This is just a couple steps above that horrible dog track. I never even knew this place existed for the first eight years I lived here. Even then when I went to a farmers market there, I thought it was abandoned with how crummy the building looked. Most of my friends did not realize there was horse racing here. I guess it is a cultural thing.and 50,000 people for 12 days is not that many people per day. I hardly call that a popular attraction. Some things should be left in the dust bin of history.

Give the land to the children. They will benefit far more by playing an outdoor team sport than the people going to see a dilapidated race track so they can drink and gamble.

Fuck the track, and fuck the sadist yard apes keeping it in business, and fuck the Weekly for dressing in "indie paper" drag.

Re: “Day at the Track

A responsible journalist would not take this at face value.

"(the minimum field count required to be eligible to host regional and national tournaments)"

Compare the existing venues that host regional and national tournaments to what the Rillito Racetrack would offer.

And ask Mr. Schmidt to pitch the whole bundle akin to…

As to your quotes of Mr. Schmidt regarding the character of Rillito patrons,

Competitive youth soccer, a business where adults (30+) use children (10+) to cheat.

Actually thought Mr. Schmidt was half describing the downtown Tucson scene.

Re: “Border Love

Most Americans are very ignorant when it comes to immigration's history. All of us have unique reasons for coming to the United States. Perhaps and ironically, in my case, I was forced out of Mexico by the Americans who took over our water rights.

Re: “Day at the Track

Nice advertising for the track. I guess the cruelty involved with horse racing and the horses who die on the track aren't worth mentioning, huh? I'm actually curious, is this piece supposed to be serious journalism?
