Re: “Huppenthal Takes Another Run At Explaining His Blog Comments (And Other Things)

Sway doo nyms? Seriously? And this bozo considers himself to be educated? And his language and comments were a little rough? Huppenthal is nothing but a deluded, far right-wing fanatic who has lived in a fantasy world since childhood.

Re: “Fook and Mishell to Leave KFMA

Fook was great before she showed up. She brought the whole show down. She wasn't funny and was generally annoying. Good riddance......

Re: “Ted Nugent Endorses Dark Horse GOP Gubernatorial Candidate Frank Riggs

So Riggs will get the pants-shitting, draft-dodging, assault weapon-carrying vote? Somehow, I don't think Nugent fans will carry him into Babbitt tower.

Re: “Danehy

See what ? Never mind. Manuel, I guess your remarks are aimed at what I had to say. Let me start by correcting you. I'm getting pretty good at this around here. I am NOT a Republician. I'm a regestered Independent. I probably have more axes to grind with the G.O.P. than you do. As far as me being a conservative and retired, at least you got somethings right. If never having to work again at age 54 makes me a dimbulb, I wish I was a cronic dimbulb. That way I could have packed it in at age 50. You're obviously upset with me for playing the revisionist card. whatever that is. Most of what you had to say is from things in the past. I notice you could not offer us one ecomonic plan that Obummer has had to offer. Well, at least you had the cajones to respond. Nice try Tom, nice try Manuel.

Re: “Tacos by Daylight

Another new and well-worth-trying taqueria on Campbell is up on Campbell and Ft Lowell. It's called Taqueria Pueblito and is inexpensive and delicious. Finally, good Mexican food on the North Side!

Re: “Danehy

Ah yes... nice to the cabal of unemployed and retired conservative dim bulbs who regularly comment on Tom's columns are still going for the revisionist card... as if Lincoln and T.R. (heck even Ike) would be welcome in the modern GOTP. It's a delicious irony that a party which came into being as a reaction to the navtism, fear and bigotry of the Whigs is itself descending into irrelevance because it has embraced what it once despised. Enjoy your RINO hunts ladies... it's you who'll be extinct.

Re: “Video of Tucson Streetcar Ride Down 4th Ave Underpass

What I want to know is?.......who gets to hose down the vomit from the drunk U of A students at the end of the night?
So who is this Gene Caywood guy who loves playing with toy trains that we have to pay $197,000,000 worth of my money? He is listed in the Star as the "Visionary" who dreamed up this mess. And we need fewer "visionary" people in this city and more accountants.

Re: “Video of Tucson Streetcar Ride Down 4th Ave Underpass

Looks like it ran a 4-way stop sign at 53 seconds into the video.

And I bet the TV talking heads will e breathless about their virgin rides today.

Re: “Ted Nugent Endorses Dark Horse GOP Gubernatorial Candidate Frank Riggs

Several years ago a Northern California office holder, Frank Riggs, had a protest going on in his office that he did not like. Since the protesters would not leave, Mr. Riggs had security come through and daub the eyes of the protesters with rags soaked in irritant in an attempt to make them leave. There's a bit more info about Frank Riggs at: http://stonewalldemsaz.org/friggs.htm

Re: “When Drinking Liberally Goes Wrong: Tucson Group 86'd by The Shanty

"if the Shanty is to survive?" I live in Phoenix and every time I'm in Tucson I try to visit the Shanty (stale popcorn and all, which I ate when I was there in June). I've been going there since the 1970's because The Shanty is always The Shanty and that's why I love it. The Red Garter, a place I have never been, sounds like a jaded dinner theatre with bad musical comedy.

Re: “Reefer Research Madness

After Vietnam, the pentagon and the military/industrial/congressional lobby figured out that if you tied the warriors to the war, then any dissenters could be branded "not supporting our troops". This was very prevalent in the Iraq debacle.

We betrayed our veterans by asking them to lay down their lives and well-being so that some old white men could feel powerful, so some oil people could feel wealthier, and defense contractors could show some big quarterly profits to the stockholders. The idea that after destroying Iraq's infrastructure we would somehow be welcomed as liberators and democracy would flourish was ludicrous at best. Oddly George H.W.Bush was a pragmatist who knew an invasion of Iraq would be a disaster and he avoided it. Now we all suffer with our vets as the echo chamber spins what a great idea it all was in spite of the results, everything bad being attributed to the succeeding president.

War and recession have defined our country since 1789 when we had a recession following the revolutionary war.

We wouldn't be squabbling about healthcare, education and employment today if we could break this cycle. The beginning of this debate is what I hope comes from all this, for our vets and future generations

It took a long while before we could say Vietnam was a colossal mistake, I wonder how long this one will take.
