Dan, that sounds puzzling. I too enjoyed Vanderpool's meaty articles and his propensity to ask tough questions. Too bad. Any chance we might have him back someday? If not, I hope his successor is worthy. :(
Not to be a killjoy, but in Tucson EVERYBODY I saw, regardless of race, ethnicity, creed or color, dragged his/her butt while crossing the street. I think it's just a Western thing where car culture takes precedence over pedestrian culture. People out West aren't used to traveling by foot, so they do it gingerly and with caution. (Just my tongue-in-cheek theory, anyway.) Remember "Walking in L.A." by Missing Persons? I think it applies to AZ too.
The resultant of this oppressive regimes end is to discourage all but the poorest Mexican ( illegals ) and Blacks to ( and I might add ) Stupidly have kids in Tucson. Any and everybody else will send theirs to Private School, or Home School them. In the end, Everybody KNOWS, contrary to prevailing homosexual/pornographers dreams and views, La Raza will never mix with los Mallates, except outside of school and on the fringes of their neighborhoods. In otherwords, even after 60 years, Diss-segregation will continue to be needed.
In dealing with the rapidly shrinking middle class in America, the proposed solutions would be:
• Democrats—Try to help poor people move up and help those currently in the middle class to at least maintain their position.
I'm in the lower middle class, and the democrats haven't lifted a finger ( except for the middle one ) to help me. They AND the Republicans ( whoever the hell is in power ) have just taxed the hell outta my ass, and blown the money on ways and means of securing their oppressive domain.
Libertarians should be in power, because at least I would be able to get high and laugh at this pathetic excuse for a government for the people by the people.
the resistance is maintained and $upported by the Feds, ATF, DEA, ICE, etc whose members livings are bolstered by it, and by the Cartels in and outside of Mexico, and the criminal mafia groups here. They mostly inflame local opinion against use through School, and Church organizations to bring pressure on legislative representatives to continue prosecution and to NOT decriminalize. That keeps the cost of obtaining it High and more profit to suppliers because production costs are actually low.
95 dislikes between me and namvet. Not a bad weeks work. Does my heart good.
How pitiful. Making fun of a young german for something done by a madman 75 years ago is much like continuing the racism and slavery towards blacks. What were you thinking?
They want their Mayberry back. Problem is, for most it never existed. It was a fantasy reserved for those with the right income and skin color. Over the years, this bubble has been getting smaller and smaller, but unfortunately stronger. It will eventually fall under it's own weight, but not without doing this nation serious harm first. They've already made us painfully aware that they'd rather see this country burn, than be wrong. It will eventually die a natural death. But some things are never dead enough.
Nam6870vet: Wait, are you talking about the Cover-Up or a concert mentioned in an advertisement? If it's the Cover-Up, you have the dates wrong...it ran from the 12th through the 14th. If it's an advertisement you're talking about, I don't have any control over those...I don't even generally see them until the paper is printed.
So, thanks for noticing something, I guess?
with the abandonment of science, logic and reason in the republican and tea party platform, I find the irony in your statement(s) supremely amusing.
Here's an interesting observation for the editor; the issue is dated the 12 of December and yet an advertisement in the paper's header is for concert on 10 December. Nice job!
FACTS... a wooden stake in the heart of liberalism.
jlm713, the implication for both the Republicans and Tea Party is treason. Meanwhile the consistent comments how great the Democrats are and how bad everyone else tells the entire story of Tom's narrow-mindedness and bigotry. If Tom were to remove his head from his ass and read something other than the DNC and White House talking points, he may have a chance at making an informed statement. As with the rest of the "liberal lemmings" they are afraid to do any research because they would discover how wrong they have been for many years.
LouisWoo, you may want to read something other than the revisionists' history and look at facts, your ignorance of the FACTS is appalling.
Arizona white supremacists have imported from Michigan a disgraced radio shock jock who is heard often on 104.1 FM, had to flee Michigan when he got caught faking a drowned dog story, calls himself superman but has a bad ticker, dark soul who often mocks Mexicans, now I am white as rice so before the racists start accusing me of being illegal that one will not fly here!:-) To ad insult to injury the white supremacists imported a second 104.1 FM shock jock a white man trapped in a black mans body who constantly denigrates his own race on air as shiftless, lazy and entitlement addicts! In a bygone era they called such a old uncle tom, but my view is they are just some poor self hating black person trapped in the wrong body!:-) The good thing is they are in misery here in Tucson since they will never run anything, the right wingers at 104.1 FM and their pals at channel 9 cannot get a right wing dog catcher elected down here and thank god we do not have one of their messiahs like Arpaio costing us tens of millions in lost civil suit judgments!
Racism exists every where in the world, every city, country, state, county etc. in USA has a racist, in Tucson they had a merry band of 8 whom one used to see in the news all the time burning Mexican flags, one a old lesbian was caught sneaking into the rogue minute man trial of her friend Forde, now on death row for child murder! Do not worry bad karma comes to these folks, nothing good will come to them in the long run, if not getting their due on earth, that lake of fire will be one rude awakening and shock and awe moment when they realize its never going to end!
Panties in a bunch? Another civil liberal. Hope this doesn't get your boxers in a bunch.
I can't believe the blatant racist questions in this column. I used to be a bus driver and I've never seen any such thing as only Mexicans crossing the street more slowly. Believe me all races do it. It depends on the person, not the race. I don't know how "The Mexican" can stomach these stupid, racist rantings.
Dear nam6870vet, Tom did not say Tea partiers were guilty of Treason. He said that they believe a treaty with Iran would be Treason. Try reading it more carefully before you get your panties in a bunch.
nam6870vet made more sense in one comment than Pulitzer Tommy has made in years of so called columns. And already he's racking up the dislikes. That's because you leftists hate facts. Keep up the good work my friend and thank you for your service to our country. I'll bet that most of the readers have no idea what you name stands for. Guys like you make me proud to be the right-winger that I am. There's a reason we're called the RIGHT.
Tom, one final thought before I close out. If you believe the Tea Partiers are guilty of treason, maybe you should settle in with a copy of the Constitution. Once finished you will discover the only party guilty of treason is the Democratic Party and its blatant disregard for the Constitution they swore to protect, defend and uphold. The majority of Tea Partiers want us to return to the founding document rather than continue down the path to socialism. I have always found you an interesting read, even though I continue to disagree with your very narrow perspective on the world and politics in general. A man of your education and experience should be better rounded in you opinions. Just because a conservative says something, doesn't make it wrong and the same goes the other way, just because a liberal says something doesn't make them correct. Reality is both sides have their agendas and are fairly much in lockstep. We need some thinkers and folks who will represent their constituents rather than the lobbyists and donors. I became an Independent voter because both major parties continue to say one thing and do another. The Tea Party representatives went to DC to return us to the Constitution and became entrapped in the same political jungle that has existed for longer than either of us can remember. When your fair haired folks, Obama, Pelosi and Reid, publically state over and over again that they will not negotiate or compromise, they become the obstructionists.
