Re: “The Skinny

What about disclose of that middle school texting one another in class (and I'm only assuming they are texting "one another")? Disclose it or put your phone away. It's especially childish when they do it while citizens are speaking. If it's a county paid for phone we are entitled. I'm quite sure it's not Huck ordering pork chops or Ray tallying his graft for retirement.

Re: “The Skinny


If you managed a budget exceeding 1 billion dollars a year and did that successfully for a few decades...what would you expect to be paid? Are the taxes that you pay excessive? Maybe you can cite specific instances of financial mismanagement on the part of Pima County?

Just more hot air, baseless accusations. Is Chuckles ... Ally Miller?

Re: “The Skinny

Partial agreement. There is little difference between Sanders and Trump when it came to primaries. Just like the UK yesterday, voters in the lower and middle classes are sick and tired of the "party elite." It hasn't worked. Both sides are looking to outsiders to do the hard work of solving the problems that the parties have not.

Long story short? Hillary is the only old guard, lie to your face, insider politician that is left. The public is now seeing how power and money have totally corrupted the Clinton machine. Sanders supporters aren't going back, and much as Raul will be rewarded for bringing them back to the "plantation."

Voters are finally paying attention and they are smarter than that.

Re: “The Skinny

Nobody, but nobody, talks about the extraordinary feat of Sen. Sanders to run a competitive campaign with small dollar donations against the Clinton Machine and a DNC with its thumb on the scale. Meanwhile the candidate who swears she'll reign in Wall St. and wants to end Citizens United is funded by and beholden to big money. That campaign promise is simply unbelievable.

Re: “The Skinny

After the defeat of progressives in the UK yesterday, Bernie may be nobody's problem. But Hillary has plenty. After joining our President's threats of "moving the British to the back of the line" blew up in their faces, it would appear the world is tiring of governmental control of economies. Add that to immigration out of control with open borders, and they just said NO.

November we just may Trump them.

Raul telling you how to vote?

Re: “The Skinny

"Grijalva was one of the few members of Congress to endorse Bernie Sanders, but now he says it's time for 'Bernie or bust' crowd to get behind Hillary Clinton, even if they do think she's too close to Wall Street or a neocon warmonger."

Here's one problem with this idea: if we were to "get in line," the Democrats will continue to use the progressive base for elections and then ignore us again and again. They will never respect the progressives unless we carry the ‪#‎BernieOrBust‬ strategy to its 50 state conclusion in November.

Problem two: try to imagine our credibility if we "get in line" after Bill Clinton encouraged Trump to get more involved with Republican politics. We would immediately stop being revolutionaries and start being sheep. Sorry Grijalva, ‪#‎SheepNoMore‬. Trump is Clinton's problem to solve, not progressive's.

"There are none so blind as those who will not see."-John Heywood

Also see Jeremiah 5:21.


Under fascism, the state, through official cartels, controlled all aspects of manufacturing, commerce, finance, and agriculture.

That is the Democratic Party with regulations just waiting to take control of more that they can't seem to manage.

Re: “The Skinny

After 24 years of vilifying Hillary Clinton, they have succeeded in convincing some people that there is no difference between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump! Ridiculous! Remember, Bill Clinton gave us Ruth Bader Ginsburg, while Ronald Reagan gave us Antonin Scalia, Bush Sr. gave us Clarence Thomas, and Bush Jr. gave us Alito. These three have been the most horrible right wing activists ever. The reason that the Republican leadership is trying to hold their noses and support Trump is that they want him to appoint their judges - the ones that will keep Citizens United, help them to undermine and defeat Universal Healthcare, support their efforts to continue to undermine a woman's right to choose, take away the gains of the LGBT community and the Dreamers, privatize Social Security and Medicare, make sure there is never any gun control and on and on. Really don't think it makes a difference? Continue to build a movement; do not help these right wingers to continue to move us toward fascism. Remember, building a movement is NOT about electing one person.

Re: “The Skinny

Great link. I never thought I would read the truth in the Huffington Post.

"President Obama staffed his administration at its highest levels with former bankers and corporate lawyers. The Attorney General and the head of the criminal division came from and returned to a corporate law firm representing many of the bankers that should have been prosecuted. Not surprisingly, they worried publicly that prosecuting the banks might endanger the recovery."

Hope and change? What are you guys smoking?

Re: “The Skinny

This idea that Hillary is a "neocon" or a tool of Wall Street just represents a triumph of propaganda. Hillary was on of the top 10 most left Senators during her tenure. She fought against the big banks to establish regulations on them.

Re: “The Skinny

Sorry Raul but most Sanders supporters have no interest in supporting Hillary. She is a liar and a criminal of Wall St. But you go ahead. We see you for what you are.

Ricky Hernandez's challenge is under advisement by the Judge in that case. Decision due sometime this week, maybe.

Re: “The Skinny

As a County Supervisor and public servant, exactly what part of Ally Miller's activities (or that of her staff) are so sensitive that records obtained from her office for public disclosure will require review and redaction?

How did Ally Miller's office arrive at the $1600 (extortion) fee? Normally, if there are fees, they are justified as reimbursement for the cost of employee's time spent obtaining the records and for the cost of reproduction.
