Re: “Dead in the Desert

Where is this road? I heard about this on the news. If it can't be patrolled on a regular basis then we the public need to make a point to do this!! I can't believe that this is so well known and nothing had been done!!??

Re: “Unhealthy Status

"And, even though DACAmented working youth pay taxes, they still can't get insurance through the Affordable Care Act's online marketplace and are ineligible for AHCCCS, the state's version of Medicaid."

So we'll gladly accept their tax dollars but say 'screw you' to any kind of assistance that would allow for basic medical care? It's not about liberal versus's about basic human decency. These are young individuals who didn't make the choice to be here but are trying to make the best of their circumstances and become productive, educated members of society. The hypocrisy is maddening...they are told to earn their way just like everyone else but are never given the infrastructure to do so.

Re: “Bye-Bye Birdie

If a local business wanted to do this, they would have had to file an environmental impact statement (spending thousands) wait for years of hearings and then be turned down. Or fined.

But not PC. Once again, are they above the law?

Re: “Unhealthy Status

I'm a liberal, but I still think people should require documentation to be here. As someone who travels a lot in Europe, I know you can't just sneak in and camp out anywhere without a form on documentation without being immediately deported beyond your visa.

Re: “Unhealthy Status

What other country can you enter illegally and drain their resources? Why should it be allowed in this country? These people need to go home! I stopped trying to understand liberals a long time ago. Their thinking on these matters simply makes no logical sense. I guess it's true that liberalism is a mental disorder. Is there no medication available?

Re: “Unhealthy Status

Meanwhile their deadbeat parents shun all responsibility for their very own children, replaced by liberals and other people's money. They came here to take and still give nothing. Taxpaying citizens will never hear a thank you.

Re: “Unhealthy Status

Whine, whine, bitch, bitch. If it's so bad here, maybe their parents should've stayed home.

Re: “Toilet Politics

Misogynists to the right, victims to the left. I'm a pony. Please label the center bathroom for me.

Re: “Caterpillar Concerns

You don't want industry because they manufacture a bulldozer to contain those Mutts in the Middle East? Go flush it down the toilet in your third bathroom.

Re: “Caterpillar Concerns

This will be a boon for the west side. Don't let the naysayers foment resentment.

Re: “Caterpillar Concerns

I am with Josefina on this. We will have to see what the company can do to help bring forth some of our local culture. I can see that it would be a stretch but if a Fortune 500 company can't do it then who can? I heard some arguments, in talking with neighbors, that the machines were used in offensive ways. Eg. Mining, used to mow down Palastinian housing. That doesn't make a good argument. The local mines, Rosemont, and Oak Flats aren't going to be getting free tractors. And About Palastine, how a tool is used has no bearing on the manufacturer. BTW, the color of the skin of our neighborhood representatives has no bearing either. They are all just good neighbors. Don't go there.

Re: “Caterpillar Concerns

Where can one look for job offers from Catepillar? I know a very experienced person whom I can refer for this expansion.

Re: “Caterpillar Concerns

Interesting to observe that the people representing Menlo Park are not Hispanic, in a predominately Hispanic neighborhood, besides Regina Romero.

With all of these new developments I would appreciate seeing a map showing where all of these new projects will be.

Re: “Caterpillar Concerns

Listen to the NIMBYS. They never stop. That's why most in this town are dirt poor and will remain that way.

"We really want to keep Tucson crappy."

Isn't that special?

Re: “Caterpillar Concerns

Politicians never "lose sleep" over their decisions, it's not their money and usually these projects are'nt in their neighborhoods. If it succeeds, great, if it fails, so what's new?

Re: “Caterpillar Concerns

If Tucson can leverage it's proximity to manufacturing in Mexico, supply chains, ports in Mexico and California, the expansion of our own port, the railroad expansion and the proposed I11 route from Mexico to Canada, wow! I see no reason why we cannot attract other major manufacturers and producers, notably auto and other equipment makers, to relocate regional and maybe even national headquarters to AZ. This is the kind of stimulus that the City of Tucson really needs and the kinds of opportunities that will attract young talented educated people to come and stay in Tucson for a change.

Now we just need new market rate housing development downtown!

There is almost as much undeveloped empty dirt land west of I10 between 22nd and Speedway as there is developed land in the core of downtown Tucson. Plenty of room to build, attract more employers, build a lot of market rate housing, a park, a museum... Look at a map, that is a lot of land and it has been sitting empty all of our lives!

Re: “Caterpillar Concerns

A far cry from the Science Center, Mission/Convento, Boutique hotels, residential areas, and retail/restaurants that were promised as part of the Rio Nuevo package.
