Just sounds to me like a bill written to fail. Why not write the bill like the one in Colorado or Washington State? It's pretty hard to die from marijuana vs. alcohol...all alcohol takes is a drunk and he/she kills both of you or a car full of you. Marijuana is a godsend for PTSD soldiers. Or let's put aside that booze makes your spouse kick the crap out of you and marijuana doesn't, and focus on legalizing HEMP like the smart people of the world have done. You can make things with it, like paper (save a tree, absorb carbon dioxide). Let's just start there so farmers can maybe grow hemp instead of water slurping agricultural products or letting Canada chop off another mountain, or Australia. So cross out marijuana and put in hemp and ask them to change the bill and have a grown up conversation about the monetary benefits of legalizing marijuana, maybe sticking that money into education to teach people to have a grown up conversation and teaching a few grownups to do the same, which seems to be less harmful than downing a quart of whiskey because your knee hurts.
Don't believe him, Vince. He threw me under the bus and won't even say why.
I first used that phrase one day when I was coaching basketball. We were doing workouts (actually, THEY were doing workouts) in the gym on a nasty hot summer day with no AC on. They started complaining and I said, "Hey, we live in the desert! We should embrace the heat." I've been using it ever since. And I really, really do drive around with my windows down. I'm doing my part to repair the hole in the ozone layer. I miss talking to you on the radio.
I just cannot let it go Tom. Did you really say " I embrace the heat". Is that anything like "Feeling the Bern"? Man you sound like some New Age hipster sitting on Oprah's couch.
I was tempted to joke that I have something hot that you can embrace, but that wouldn't be practicing civility now would it?
Thank you Mr. Jensen, I think. The name calling here is rampant, but I still like discussing issues. It would help if the others would hold each other accountable as the Weekly does not. As you can see the authors come on and argue with their audience. It's kind of like hecklers at a comedy club. That's OK. The name calling does get old.
Do you really think I would come here almost everyday and post about my country if I didn't love it?
Yo Tammy. You're a liar. And a jerk.
This is Tom. You can ask people who know me; I almost always drive around with my windows down (unless it's raining). People ask me why and I respond, "I live in the desert; I embrace the heat." The guy had the flag sticking straight up right behind the cab of the truck so that it would unfurl and fly when he was moving. And yes, he had both of his windows down. I don't know why. It was an older truck. Maybe he didn't have air conditioning or maybe he, too, embraces the heat. You can call me a jerk but don't call me a liar.
Ratty I have watched them call you un american, a hater, an idiot and much much more. Why do you keep coming back? They won't follow their own rules. And nothing is ever deleted.
Rules aren't for liberals Mark. They are for the supposed underclass.
From the comments policy list; "Personal attacks, insults, or threatening language. Name-calling will not be tolerated." If this is the policy of the Weekly, then the entire Danehy article should be deleted.
Tom proves once again what prejudices he holds and once again who cares. Idiot
Educated into ignorance? Many are suffering from it. You may deserve a refund. Call your college.
You nailed it William. Danehy is " compulsively racially obsessed"
He couldn't go a week on the radio without bringing up race on Emil's show.
Self-hating white liberal thing I guess.
He can never let go of the southern put downs either.
You can see how well blacks are doing in the urban plantations like Chicago and Baltimore.
How many murders in Chicago since Barry became President? What is the black youth unemployment
rate? Since Obama doesn't have any American slave blood in his ancestry, maybe he isn't really down with the cause like old Danehy.
I noticed, like the mainstream press, you didn't have much to say about those ugly remarks by DNC staffers about race, anti-Semitism and gays. Keep up the selective outrage Tom.
There will always be a redneck around to make you feel better about your superior bad self.
You never know what's going to rile up the racist apologists, do you. "You might be black" seems to have struck that nerve. (I'm laughing as I put the period on this.)
Get over this race obsession; Black? What the hell does that mean? When Obama gave his first few SOTU addresses Boehner (sitting behind him) was darker skinned than B.O. He was a dark orange. And White? Most of us are light brown or pink. We all know what you mean, but it doesn't mean much to most normal Americans - except Race baiters like Sharpton or Black Lives Matter people... or you.
Seal is the blackest human I've ever seen and he married one of the whitest women around, but neither cared about so-called skin hue and their children are beautifully unconscious of their heritage - until they meet some compulsively racially obsessed Liberal like you in a classroom.
Get over it; it's a little embarrassing to your friends (like me).
Trump gets ahead by gratuitously insulting political opponents. Danehy gets ahead by gratuitously insulting Southerners. See the difference?
I still don't understand making fun of somebody based on their skin color. Tim your humor appears very similar to that of Hillary Clinton's.
It only exists in your own mind, and makes the rest of us very uncomfortable.
Sure you did.
So you are telling us that with Tucson temps in the low 100’s both of you had your windows open in your vehicles? The truck would have had both of its windows open. What a convenient coincidence for your story.
If he pulled even with you how were you able to see into the back of his truck? If you had pulled up on him you could have seen it, but not the other way around, unless you have some sort of Spidey vision.
The KKK may have, historically, been filled with Democrats but it's all Republican now. As far as any Arizona city being described as the "5th poorest metro area"...........well, ................the Red Necked Lemmings have handed almost total control of the state to Republicans FOR DECADES........SO......any problems the cities face are 99 and 9/10 percent THE CREATION AND RESULT OF REPUBLICANS.
