I'll use the self check-out lanes when the stores offer a discount for doing so. I don't work for the store, so they should offer something for my helping them out. The only incentive appears to be to save some insufferable ass who's in line behind you from complaining while waiting his/her turn.
Tommy should try opening the doors at the (former) Unisource building at 1 S. Church. Not only are the doors massive glass but the hinge point isn't at the far edge of the door but is inset, reducing leverage. I can open them okay but my fiance who works there uses the automatic opener, particularly when her hands are full.
I always use the automatic openers (using my knee) in the downtown library men's rooms. Who wants to touch a door with wet hands after have the homeless mental cases in the country have gone before you? And you have to have wet hands, since there aren't any towels, and the air blowers are just recycling the dust mites off the aforementioned bums.
I think Tom should get out of town.
How about John McCain?!
You forgot about ParkWise, who seem to try very hard to paint themselves as the scum of the Earth. How do $100 to $200 parking tickets even exist in a low-wage town like Tucson?
shortening the life of Tucsonans thru asthma and COPD is only a great benefit if you own a hospital or are a pharmacist or doctor
About those haunted houses- some of them really are in purgatory. Here's how- ACCHSS or whatever its called, has a program in which if a person becomes unable to care for themself they will pick up the tab for their institutionalization in exchange for their (owned) home, with the idea they will recoup the expenses when the person dies, because the title does not go into their name til then.Great idea ,but...in the meantime the houses threaten the neighborhood as fire hazards and meth labs.As a relative without POA of such an institutionalized person I was unable to get the gas company to shut off gas, even with the intervention of a city councilperson.It was only with repeated calls that I was able to get the police to plywood up the windows and doors and patrol for the drug users who stole every stick of furniture and left their paraphenelia behind.
Were girls or children broght there and raped? Its possible, anything is possible in that demon infested place.This house is on a major street , in a very nice neighborhood.The neighbors must be livid because their hands are tied.Meanwhile its hard to see how ACCHS can end up with more than a tax bill as the house has become a shambles.
I.M. I'm amazed that you didn't mention Freecycle. It's a web site was founded right here in Tucson by Deron Beal. It's now an international program for people to offer things they no longer need where others can look for things they want or need. It's prevented tons of stuff from winding up in the landfills.
I also go to a cashier in the supermarket because I'd like to keep them employed.
Qho cares who uses those door openers because it doesn't affect me one way or the other.
You really should keep this feature.
Did you actually try to open that automatic door, Danehy, before attacking those who used the button? If the door is like most of them, it would make a great substitute for weight training for the UA football team. Maybe you are a big burly guy who hardly notices how hard you have to pull to get one of those bleeping things open.
I have become so tired of the self check out either not working or telling me to wait for assistance and there is no-one around. Besides, I like chatting with the cashiers. They are mostly very nice people and deserve nice words. Far too many rude customers who are of the opinion that they can verbally abuse cashiers. Because the customer is always right, they get away with the bullying.
Too many busybodies in AZ trying to run everyone elses' business.
People entering or leaving a building have a right to push the automatic door opener instead of opening the door by pulling on the handle. That is what the automatic door opener is for.
And busybodies are not capable of looking at people and telling if they are handicapped.
I have had morons actually approach me in a hostile manner and demand to know what is my handicap. "What is your problem?" They demand. I reply "You are my problem, now save yourself and get out of my face or I will become your problem," or "You can't tell what is in a person's mind, you can't look at me and tell if I am criminally insane." I wonder if I were a man if these busybodies, nearly always men, would accost me in such a rude, stupid manner.
Busybodies have no business deciding who should use a grocery self-checkout machine.
Busybodies live to get on homeowners' associations so they can molest their neighbors, bear false witness, spread lies, and destroy all community spirit. The worst ones are also stealing homeowners' dues, knowing there is no oversite on homeowners' association in AZ.
I hated time spent in Arizona because so many people with nothing else to do were going around assuming they knew what everyone else should do. Arizonans are mean spirited for the most part. And the nice people in Arizona, they are the ones who should get out of town and leave the place to the Arizona assholes.
Please don't retire this list!
Matt Somers has it so right! It doesn't say much for the intelligence or humanity of the Arizona electorate does it? I doubt if Senator Flake will be any improvement, but one can hope!
Dannyjean is correct. The grocery stores are eliminating jobs, not for the convenience of the customer, but for the increased profit of not hiring people to run the cash registers. The same way the banks started the ATM machines to eliminate tellers. Now the banks want to charge extra for using the ATM machines. I guess all the money they ave on teller's wages have forced them to charge more for the extra fun you get doing your own banking instead of having a teller help you. How long until we pay a 'small surcharge' for the 'added convenience' of using the self pay line?
People Who Don't Use the Self- Checkout Lane for a Few Items" Remember every self check-out line is a job --- GONE! Real people used to person that line....the ones who smiled and asked how your day was going. Real people who used that job to feed and clothe themselves and their families! Please do not use self-checkout lines. And, Irene, slow down and relax, you'll live longer.
T.V., I am one of your so-called fake supporters. I can also assure you that there many others like me, who support Rosemont Copper because of the benefits it will provide to our community.
1. The Occupy movement received far more press than deserved.
2. The Obama administration is as much in thrall to Wall Street as any Republican.
3. Basically the two major Parties are one and the same. They just market differently.
It is not a theory that a former member of the State Judiciary was railroad into criminal court on overblown charges in order to extort him out of his first amendment right to demand a redress of grievance from State prosecutors and enforcement authority, without fear of retribution.
Nor, is it a theory that I was convicted on three felonies and faced down twenty years in prison to guard that right. It is also not a theory but, is a sorry fact that Arizona press corps has intentionally stonewalled the story from the people. Neither is it theory that not one member of the Arizona press corps was brave enough to cover my trial or, to report on the refusal of the trial judge to join the State and the mainstream media in their effort to railroad me into silence.
Here is some more interesting history base on verifiable facts: the trial court gave me a lawyer to appeal the verdict and its non sentence of 1 year unsupervised probation and no fine. Of course, my ten year battle with the BIA DoG police enforcers has left me destitute so the Judge also award me the court transcripts necessary to appeal it generous non sentence, along with the jury’s verdict of guilty on all counts.
In a blatant effort to extort me out of my First Amendment right to petition the for a redress of grievances; the BIA gambling cartel's police agents convinced the Attorney General after five years of rejection, to join them in railroading me into criminal court on overblown charges to silence my claims and allegations against them and their illicit gambling compact. They literally asked the court to join them in the effort.
Fortunately, for me the Court declined rather directly. The Court’s comment during sentencing that most sticks out in my mind was his response to the state request was “I would never do that, it took courage to do what he (yours truly) did.”
It certainly is also a fact that the entire press corps ignored these events while, they continue to suckle the BIA gambling cartel’s teat, which is gorged full from the tainted fruits of its immoral banished rigged slot machines. It is not theory that the BIA gambling syndicate, in order to exist victimizes the State 24 and seven, without direct oversight or paying income tax revenues. For this to occur public officers must disregard their oath to uphold state statutory laws they have sworn under oath to uphold.
Here is something that is also not a theory, it is simply the law universally:
Regardless of whether an individual holds public office or not, it is still a crime under Arizona law to plot, plan, or devise a strategy or ploy, with the intent to skirt the laws of the State.
Of course, this is exactly what the BIA bureau-rats, along with their cronies from the rigged slot machine cartel, and minions among the Arizona's weak governing body. It has been going on for the past three decades. Ask yourself: When was the last time anyone in America ever heard of a Judge being convicted of conspiracy and racketeering and it is not deemed to be newsworthy by the swarms of media whores that permeate out lives?
HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL FOR A FREE PRESS Phoenix New Times take another look see.
The good news for the future is that the Phoenix New Times is apparently going to take another shot at covering my story. Hopefully, this story will be less biased in favor of the BIA gambling cartel than the effort a few years ago. Apparently, the NT is under new management. As I understand it the employees now own the paper. I was recently interviewed by feature writer Ray Stern. Hopefully, we can expect a less slanted article post trial, than we received pretrial.
I am by no means a journalist but, for my perspective on these events please link to www.convictatlarge.me
Sincerely, Judge Lee the Convict at Large
It is not a conspiracy ithat I am a former member of the State Judiciary and am proud to have challenged the State gamblng cartel and been convicted of three high felonies. It is not a conspiracy that not one member of the Arizona press corps was brave enough to cover the story. When was the last time you heard of a Judge being convicted of conspiracy and racketeering and it is not deemed to be newsworthy by the swarms of media whores?
The good news is that the Phoenix New Times is apparently going to take a shot at covering my ordeal. Apparently, they are under new management. As I understand it the employees now own the paper. I was interviewed by feature writer Ray Stern recently and we can expect the article this week or next. For my perspective, and I am by no means a journalist link to www.convictatlarge.me
I think Project Censorship is actually a consipracy to withhold information from us. I mean, why didn't they report on ANY of these stories?
1. The government shapeshifters! The space aliens are among us, breeding with us, and turning us into shapeshifting automatons!
2. Nick Weber posted a photograph of a fast car he liked to his Facebook account Saturday.
3. Why didn't we hear even ONE WORD about Kate's pregnancy?
Most of their stories are either wrong, of no interest to anyone, or the things we hear incessently.
Like Michael, being a retired photographer, I am ashamed I had never heard of nor seen any of Timothy's photographs (at least not that I can recall). His pictures prove that one doesn't need unlimited shots to get good photographs.
