Re: “Health Appeal

Certainly, for many Arizonans, the ACA has been a godsend. But what about those others, whose premiums went through the roof or who lost access to their doctors. Mr. Nintzel wrote an incomplete article and glossed over the very negative aspects of the ACA and how it works in Arizona, including the incredible deductibles that many are forced to take to pull the premium within their grasp. The Editor of the Weekly should have done her job and not let this partial information package go to print. The fact is while the ACA was a start, it is seriously defective and whenever the defects are called out, too many of us deflect the arguments by stating that it helped poorer people. The real solution for all Americans is a viable single-payer system.

That would be so totally unfair to all the snowflakes that have self produced since the last election.

Re: “From Global to Local

"Remember that fear was defined by the left os a phobia based on ignorance. Have a nice walk."

"os". WTF?

It just proves that you can't and won't pay attention. Always slandering the left when you can't even get anything right. Typical.

Are you out of venom yet? Gawd I hope so.

Re: “Health Appeal

The ACA. The GOP's alternative to the Democrats Single Payer plan. Written in the GOP's own Heritage Foundation and first passed into law by Mitt Romney in Mass. "Collapsing under it's own weight"? No, handicapped by 28 republican states doing everything in their power to cripple it. So sad.

Re: “Fair Warning

FYI for every 100,000 event attendees you need 1200 porta-potties for a ten hour event. For a multi-day event they would need to be serviced after each day. Failure to heed these guidelines makes for disturbingly discusting potties. If you've ever used one on the last day of Streetfair, you know this is true. Over the course of the event over 3 million people attend.

Also, the potties would line the side streets, not the Ave. Don't freak, the City is only asking for a reasonable number.

Engel has always been an inspiration to me, as a fellow Veteran. He has the heart and spirit as an angel. A true philanthropist and all around good person. He deserves everything good that comes to him. I know he will always do right by anyone he comes in contact with.

Re: “Community Connections

Thank you so much for this article. I am almost in tears here. To see something that started so little become what it is today, and to think of what it will be tomorrow leaves me flabbergasted. With every life we are able to touch, PIFT continues to grow in spirit. And although, we will never be able to help every single one of our families in need, we continue to fight this war against poverty! Ms. Danyelle Khmara, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Peace and Love, Engel.

Re: “Freshman Orientation

So far so good Tom, just wish you would change your language to " a reformed Medicare for All". Give your fellow law makers, voters and the media something to wrap their brains around. Wish you all the success for the benefit of our state and country.....but I'll still see you in 2018. ;-]

Re: “Freshman Orientation

"Needs to be worked on?" We have heard that about Medicare and Social Security for over forty years. But Congress doesn't work. The ACA has collapsed in four years. It doesn't need work, it needs scrapping and a do over. Join together and compromise. Americans deserved better. If this is really reform when do we address medical and drug costs? What have the doctors and the hospitals given to improve the system?

Re: “Honor and Remember

Thank you so much to all the people of Tucson, Arizona and others who made this happen. My heart hurts from the pain caused by this terrible act of gun violence. Now we have a place to remember and pray for healing.

Re: “Dealing with the Devil

As long as this "worship" doesn't lead to physical harm, property crimes, hatred of others or mayhem, why should anyone care what they want to believe? Even the most carefully structured and rigorously defined religions rely upon "faith" in a little glimpse or insight into the unknowable as their bottom line. As soon as some real truth about our physical existence provides real certainty about why there is life at all, then I'll buy in again, gladly.

Re: “Wild Horses

all the comments above are true! no shelters, horses stand in their own waste as pens aren't cleaned, and if a horse dies, they just bring in a backhoe and dig a hole on the property and bury it there !!!

Re: “Dealing with the Devil

Satanism inverts Christian symbols. It is okay with Muslims or whoever. It is specifically anti-Jesus and anti-Bible. Being against a religion should not be recognized as a religion. Just like Jediism is not recognized in the UK as a real religion despite their efforts.

Re: “Dealing with the Devil

As a true believer in the power and hate that only spews forth from the dark lord Lucifer, I find this group and their use of my masters image a disgrace. Beelzebub would not approve of this group hijacking his name. I hope you all go to heaven!
