Re: “Arizona Back in 9th Circuit Court Today Defending No Driver's Licenses for DREAMers

The Republicans who changed the licenses so they don't meet Federal laws. The radical, angry GOP in AZ. The party who breeds radicals in AZ and then exports them to other states.

It seems the 9th Circuit judges have seen enough of Arizona's hating on Mexicans to know it when they see it.

Re: “Woman Calls Out Cheating Husband Via Billboard

Please be careful here nobody can help you here or even suggest how you can get your ex or love back,any testimonies of most spell caster here must be ignore because most of them are scams. I have been married to my Husband for 16 years now, but all of a sudden he started to act funny, and I tried to find out what was wrong and he told me that he was tired of me which hit me like a big shock and told me to leave him alone. Three days later, my husband came home with another woman and when I confronted him, he beats me up and sent me packing. I pleaded and pleaded with my husband but it seems I was making things worse, so I packed my things and went to stay with my mom who told me to be calm that everything will be fine. I did all I could to get my husband back but to know avail until I came across a comment on YouTube on how a man got his wife back with the help of a spell and I had to read his comment which motivated me to get in contact with the spell caster greatoririobaspellhome@gmail.com. I told the spell caster all my problems and that I want my husband back so desperately, he then told me that he was going to help cast the spell to get my husband back within 24 hours but I never believed all what he said because. So he told me to send some vital information's and amount of money to enable him get the items needed for the spell casting I also did send the money though I was scared because I believed I have lost my money, but to my greatest surprise the next day in the morning I heard a knock on my door and I went to check who it was and behold it was my husband who immediately went on his knees crying for forgiveness and told me that he wants me back home and promise he will never hurt my feelings anymore. I thought I was hallucinating until my husband joined me in packing my things and took me back home. Now I believed that the only spell caster who can help you get your ex back and solve any life problems is this man "Great Oriri" and you can contact him via his email: greatoririobaspellhome@gmail.com

Re: “Undocumented Mom Hits 9th Month in Sanctuary: The 'Eeny, Meeny, Miny, Mo' Nature of ICE

So, what is the back story? Rosa is in the US for nearly 20 years, and yet her children were born outside the US? How is that? Why is her husband here legally but she isn't? There are too many vagueries here at play. I think Southside Presbyterian and the many well-intentioned volunteers need to get those facts clear, and not respond from an emotional, rescue stance.

Re: “Arizona Back in 9th Circuit Court Today Defending No Driver's Licenses for DREAMers

Why is it that if I disagree with this article I magically become a racist who loves the Koch brothers and private prisons?

To clarify, I don't love the Koch brothers and I highly disapprove of private prisons and want our public schools, community colleges and state colleges to be funded.

I don't care if an illegal immigrant is here from Mexico, Sweden, India or Iceland, if they are here without paying for the documents and the proper screening, they do not get a driver's license.

We are about to pay more for the uninsured motorist: http://cronkitenewsonline.com/2015/01/should-arizona-raise-its-insurance-requirements-for-drivers-one-lawmaker-hopes-to-do-so/

This is also a matter of a State's rights versus the Federal government's reach.

Re: “Feds: Undocumented Youth Who Got a 3-Year DACA Work Permit Have to Return It Immediately, Get a 2-Year Instead

Is this author even an American? The agenda pushing here is just so palpable.

I can tell you this Maria, if your goal is to to write articles for people who believe in unlimited Illegal immigration with no repercussions, you are a nailing it. If you goal is to make anyone on the fence about illegal immigration against it completely, you are nailing it.

I thought that journalism was give and take, presenting the facts and letting the reader decide for themselves.

This type of writing is no better than Fox News.

Re: “"I'd Like To Buy a Euphemism, Pat"

Back in the Day, Nazi's were a proud bunch in snappy uniforms, never afraid to spew hate for the party's cause; nowadays they hide in $500 suits and speak their hate only in code words and innuendo, shameful how they have abandoned their founding principles

Por lo menos no fue revocada por completo....y pobre gente ignorante que siempre tiene algo negativo que decir de los inmigrantes, son un asco. Soy bilingue pero que flojera discutir con gente de mente tan cerrada =)
Good luck to those that need to replace it! What a hassle

That's some real big-city lawyering right there! Glad to see our tax dollars going to such a worthy endeavor.

Chetdude, apparently your reality is another man's lawlessness. And pissing away taxpayers dollars? That rationale is ludicrous.

Proving that Arizona is "governed" by racist ideologues who would rather piss away taxpayer dollars on quixotic campaigns against rationality and reality than actually figure out a way to "govern"...

Brought to you by the same thinking that Muslims can not pay interest on home mortgages so Seattle is demanding banks give the "Sharia Law" compliant loans with no interest.

They are here illegally already what makes you think they will comply with this? I think the chances are slim to none.

Your tax dollars at "work". Brought to you by the State Legislature that believes education is only for rich, white people and that private prisons are the future for the rest.

Re: “Tucson Pastor Shares Her Thoughts on the Fight to Save Oak Flat & the Harms of Christian Privilege

Guardians - You've missed the whole point. Glendale originally opposed the casino because, although unincorporated, the land was largely surrounded by the city. They've changed their position and are OK with it now and, in fact, support the project. The continued opposition comes from the other tribes because they feel that they've been hoodwinked by the TO as they 1) chose this specific property (in Maricopa County...think about that for a second) and bought it under a shell corporation to hide the fact that they were the owners; and 2) backpedaled on a verbal agreement during the gaming compact negotiations that was well publicized and assumed to be a part of the act but somehow never made it into writing. I'm not going to get into the big and largely unrelated guilt trip of what the white man did to the Indians...I'm talking about this specific case where the largest opposition to this casino comes from most of the rest of the other tribes in Arizona because they feel swindled by the TO. The political mechanisms are on behalf of the other tribes. Sorry dude, not gonna feel any white guilt over this one...this is a tribe vs. tribe issue.

Re: “Arizona Back in 9th Circuit Court Today Defending No Driver's Licenses for DREAMers

Considering this rewarding of criminals has been put on hold by a federal TX judge and this is a state issued document not a federal, I would tell this judge to kiss my AZ a$$.
If we do end up being forced to be complaint to these law breakers, the state should put on the license, "not to be accepted as identification".

Re: “Orange is the New Black Fans: Read This Essay, Be Aware of the Reality of Women's Prisons

@ladderflappy ... I guess you didn't read the Ms magazine piece or watch any of the series episodes, as anxious as you were to pass on the tired conservative conceit of "personal responsibility." I think the more important take away is that women behind bars in the American experiment with mass incarceration, the majority of them non-violent offenders, are still human beings with human needs and dreams, whose stories are often colored with genuine pathos and sometimes tragedy. Maybe we should reflect a bit on the societal (human) cost of these policies before piling on with yet another round of shallow, self-righteous shaming.
