Mr. Danehy, my head swims with the directions you folks take on this immigration issue. Ok, 1070 is BAD, then, not so much, now, Neto calls this clown who got deported a 'good guy' ? I didn't read his column but from your inference, he's leading the charge that he shouldn't have been? Your conclusions about him being deported are in my judgement are correct. He's illegal (NOT undocumented - ILLEGAL!!) You're outta here. For reasons aptly stated by yourownself as Jeff Smith used to say. But, you confuse me ( and probably yourself with this whirligig. You're beginning to sound like Bob Bekel on "The Five." Things are getting so screwed up, old fashioned liberals like yourself are being shoved into the political center. What's his face needs a permanent one-way south. His kids? They are American, if they want...they stay here.
They say even a blind squirrel can find a nut now and then. I guess that's the case with Pulitzer Tommy this week. Good job Tommy ol' pal, except for the S.B. 1070 part. If you read it, it's just a mirror of the federal immigration law.
Great column, I felt the same way.
CW13: You're a funny guy.
It is not too often I disagree with you Tom but this time you messed up. I agree with the commenter 'Kentop" on this one.
And this has what to do with Tom's column ? Black buy ?
Ps...Jon Justice and his pal the black buy trapped in a white mans body showed up at the local Macdonald's on a rainy dreary day, allegedly as a counter protest, with some of his fans, made a big deal of the workers at the Macdonald's not joining the protest, guess he thought the owner would just give them a protest break if they did instead of a dismissal for leaving job assignment! Then today on his show he claims he shut down the protest and made them leave not due to the weather! Of course this joke for a right wing advocate cannot even get a right wing candidate elected to dog catcher in Tucson as is evident since everyone he campaigns for loses! Sadly this is a necessary media outlet for the sad sacks who live for hatred, racism, bigotry in every community, they need their right wing snake oil providers!
Was listening to Jon Justice 104.1 FM the other day in a communication he had with Katie Pavolich his shill he often used while she was in college now a editor for a right wing blog, and they were mocking the low wage workers who might wish for a raise in minimum wage, it was ironic Justice using a 25 year old who went straight from college to a high paying editor job, who has some questionable connections to John Birch society see
One might wonder how anyone can take this joke for a right wing radio shock jock seriously when he got run out of Michigan, fired for a drowned dog hoax, is his shill Pavolich just another version of tendency to use hoax's in form of a girl just out of college to denigrate the less fortunate in society?
There are plenty of eligible poster boys of the "latter category" awaiting deportation as you read this, but Jesus Ramon Gonzales was just an opportunity for Portillo to put in his two centavos in on the subject. I didn't feel that it was an article glorifying Gonzales. It was a warts and all article about illegal immigration, factually reported. Portillo is a good enough writer that if he did want to turn Gonzales into a hero, he would have left out or glossed over all those bad bits. Instead, you state that "by Portillo's own account...", he enumerates definitely unsympathetic facts about Gonzales. And yet you accuse Portillo of trying to gloss over the facts to make Gonzales a sympathetic character. You can't have it both ways, Tom.
I don't hate it. I love it. Makes me proud to be a right-winger. Besides, it was Tommy who decided to shut me out after we found a middle ground. Ask him why. Maybe he'll tell you. He ignores me. Why should you care what I read ? Do us all a favor and M.Y.O.B.
CW13: What the hell are you talking about?
Follow-up question: Is there a better use of your time than reading a column every week that you hate?
This is hard to believe. With all the libs that read the Geekly, only 5 signed up for the Pulitzer Tommy fan club. Sounds like Obummer's crew set up the website !!
Classic ?? I know you're kidding. Pulitzer Tommy sucked then as he sucks today. He was an irrelevant stooge in 1999. The only thing that's changed is today he's a bigger stooge and even less irrelevant. Classic? Give me a break. I assume you had to dig into Tommy's archives because he's taking a little time off. Now, that's CLASSIC. The useless bum is on vacation 365 days a year. Maybe while he's off he'll start work on his next column. A 2 part blockbuster on girls basketball with a few jabs at the Tea Party thrown in. Maybe he'll find a little space to remind us that his kids went to charter school. What a sad, sad person.
P.S. Signed up yet, Tommy ?
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.
Laughter through our tears.
Nice take-down. Thank you Mr. Danehey!
A new low for Pulitzer Tommy in the ho-hum,who really cares about this mindless blather department. I can't believe you actually got 2 other chumps other than me to respond. I'd love to see what would happen if you were put in a position where you had to go out and get a real job.
P.S. Signed up yet, Tommy ?
I like using the older PROVEN system from the Territorial days. You know, the system used back before computers, high tech tweeting, and tour buses. Play against your neighbors, those who come out on top THEN get to play the better teams from the rest of the state.
Alternatively, just dump out the Valley area schools, and let the state of Arizona have it's own champions. Maybe schedule a final round of teams from Arizona vs those in the great state of Maricopa.
Let me guess, the reason the AIA is using a system that actually hurts smaller, more rural teams is because there is money involved. Revenue from more popular teams who actually are better than the Podunk high gene pool makes more sense to the AIA than a more socialist everybody gets to play in the game philosophy. I hate to make this about capitalism but, money driving sports tends to monopolize it, making the best teams in the biggest markets perennial winners and smaller "markets" suffer. I wouldn't blame the system, though. I blame the money.
Your completely wrong about people being alone when LARGE TRUCKS USE TWO Spaces. And BTW, what you are doing to peoples vehicle's is vandalism (witch is illigal) if you are putting large items under the tires, chemicals on the body of the vehicle, littering the vehicles with your trash. If this ever happens to my vehicle I will be looking up you up "Tom Danehy". Were not breaking the law taking up two spaces.
Mr. Nivek, if you're unable to see or at least acknowledge the gargantuan corporatist streak in the GOP, which has utterly co-opted the Tea Party, your comment only serves to underscore the truth of what I said in my post above. Your partisan myopia is a hindrance, not a help; you would do well to stop viewing things in terms of conservative vs. liberal and focus instead on right vs. wrong.
