Re: “Tucson, I Am You. You Are Me. What Are WE Going To Do?

By the way, has anybody noticed that black Ethiopian Americans have no problems with police? Why is that?

Well that was real informative. You made my case and you don't even recognize any problem except my thought process and my ilk? Really?

Re: “Backers of Higher Minimum Wage File Petitions To Ask Voters To Boost Wages

why write things off solely because they are a form of socialism? what's wrong with having a mixed economy and mixed government? public education and social security are a form of socialism. would you favor an objectivist capitalist system where all schools are privatized and everyone needs to pay for their retirement all on their own?

Re: “Tucson, I Am You. You Are Me. What Are WE Going To Do?

Ron T, the president should personally stop all shootings that every corrupt police officer is doing and he has the power to reach into every law enforcement organization across the country and make them stop.

Then on the flip side he has the power to make criminals stop shooting innocent people since we all know that even when we pass laws outlawing guns the criminals are going to follow those laws to the letter right?

I mean it isn't like there are not two other legislative branches of government that have to work with the president in order to get things done, it is all on him PERSONALLY so it must be ALL HIS FAULT.

Your thought process and your ilk is moronic and asinine.

Re: “Backers of Higher Minimum Wage File Petitions To Ask Voters To Boost Wages

A picture and quote from a fool who also was elected to Tucson Council, no surprise here. She hasn't ever met a real payroll in her life. If passed, another reason for businesses to close and not locate to the rapidly building Socialist Republic of Tucson, Pima County and if we let them Arizona. Besides, just because it is on the ballot, further wasting Taxpayer $$, doesn't require the State Legislature to follow through. So let them make more jobs leave Tucson for other townships, except for the developers shills in OV Town, never have seen another edifice, failing golf club nor town Taj Mahal (read "Center") they haven't voted to approve.

Just make it $25.00 an hour and get it over with. By Christmas every store in Tucson will be belly-up.

Well no not always, that's not how it panned out in puerto rico. but that is more of the exception to the rule than the rule itself.

Re: “Tucson, I Am You. You Are Me. What Are WE Going To Do?

In this country the police don't get to go around executing people on the spot as they see fit. Really, really not. In fact, police aren't supposed to punish you at all-- not even a little bit, and not even of you really have done something. If they have probable cause, they are supposed to arrest you and bring you to justice. To be punished, you must be found guilty and sentenced in a court of law, with due process and all that. And even then, being gunned down in the street, or beaten up or manhandled, are not among the punishments on the books.

Re: “Flake vs. Trump, or More Lunacy From The Donald's Efforts To Unify the Party

By big money I meant Sanders ran as a Democrat hoping to land big party money. He has never been a Democrat as is Trump has never been a Republican. But a third option created the 92 scenario where Perot got Bill Clinton elected. They know better.

Re: “Tucson, I Am You. You Are Me. What Are WE Going To Do?

I brought the President into it because he is the leader of our nation. He chose once again to blame this tragedy on gun control. His home town of Chicago has total gun control accelerated beyond most US cities. They are slaughtering blacks at an alarming rate and there is no,mention of it. What should he do to stop it?

You are the one that brought up Trump. He has not held public office but you spew your hate at him.

Ask yourself why?

Re: “Tucson, I Am You. You Are Me. What Are WE Going To Do?

And of course there is always someone who has to bring the president into it, because of course it is always his fault. I suppose Trump is going to come and make America great by building a wall making someone pay for it and banning every other person from entering the country except for every other Thursday and the fourth Friday of the month? Because he heard from a lot of people that it was a really good idea and he was really smart for doing it....

No wonder this country is going to hell in a hand basket and we continue to have racial issues....

Re: “Prop 123, Tucson Area Schools, and Salary Hikes

Another thought: as you look into the pay scales of administrators between districts, please distinguish between site administrators (who do the real work of the district along with teachers) and the central office staffs who hold admin certificates with district or regional responsibilities. Do not confuse these with resource teachers or curriculum developers who are actually paid on comparable teacher scales although not working directly in classrooms. They perform quasi- administrative functions and quasi-instructional functions.

Re: “Prop 123, Tucson Area Schools, and Salary Hikes

In a conversation today about the appalling allocation of the 123 money the point was raised that the 301 money withheld the last several years was effectively denied to the many retiring teachers during that time. Those withheld funds will affect the teachers' retirement earnings for the rest of their lives. Pitiful!

This was a hate crime Mr President. You are MIA again. Eight years of racial bias has been squandered. At least you didn't call them "stupid cops" again.

Re: “Backers of Higher Minimum Wage File Petitions To Ask Voters To Boost Wages

The higher the minimum wage, the lower the employment numbers. This fact is bourne out time and time again. This town is already in the gutter; does it need to go down the drain?

Vote Green or Libertarian and deny both the crook and the bigoted bully the 270 electoral votes required to win, throwing the election into the House of Representatives. Yes, you'll get a Republican but they hopefully won't be a crook or bigoted bully. Just sayin'.

Re: “Tucson, I Am You. You Are Me. What Are WE Going To Do?

If police officers bother you, make it a point to go see them. They have outreach programs-attend. Get to know your neighbors and neighborhood. "Next Door"is an app that connects neighbors AND we have coffee with the police once a month. Get rid of the unknowns and quit letting people talk you into burning down innocent people's businesses and homes. Its eye opening how much people see in the neighborhood. Bad apples as well as good citizens are easier to differentiate, even with cops, if you can talk with them socially.
