Re: “The Big Don’t Ask

The truth is she IS comitting a crime. She is an illegal immigrant. I am a LEGAL immigrant, as are my children. Why should I have had to go though many legal hoops to be here legally, and then have someone feel like they have the right to be here just bease they decided to move here illegally some years ago. It's BS!

Re: “The Big Don’t Ask

"One of Ana's high school teachers, Jennifer Contreras, was there for support. The Mexican-America Studies turned American government educator says, ideally, there shouldn't be any police officers at the schools. That alone is "already threatening.""

Is there anyway to fire Mrs. Contreras for having the ignorant view that having a police officer in a school is "already threatening"? This is a growing problem with some adults teaching children to fear police. We had SROs in schools for years without any major problem and it help give a better sense of security for the thousands of children that go to school. I really do not give a crap about illegal alien's problems when we need police officers in our schools.

These kids will not need to worry about it if they stay out of trouble and do not commit any crimes on school property. I am not willing the trade the great idea of having police officers in our schools because of ignorant fears of some students or teachers that should not be teaching.

Re: “Exit Interview

Mr. Barber I ultimately did not vote for you because you were a primary sponsor for cutting pay of 20,000 Border Patrol Agents. The lies you said about this pay reform and it was going to help us better "secure" the border was made me realize you had to go. I sent several emails and called your office to voice my concerns and all I got back was canned responses. One response was not even about this pay reform bill and was talking about your stance on the "Ebola Crisis". This showed you did not take the concerns of the thousands of agents that work harder than you were going to take a pay cut and be forced to work more hours. You failed me just as much as union and CBP leaders did.

Now Col. McSally has two years to show me and the rest of Southern Arizona she will not be corrupted by Washington DC like you did. If she does not do a good job, we can vote her out in two years. The House of Representatives has two year terms for this very reason. So, they can be the pulse of the people. Were they can be easily switched after only a couple of years. Just like I did with you.

I wish you and your wife well. If I do ever get a chance to meet you in person, I will thank you with all your work you did for veterans, but I will tell you my disgust I have for your pay reform that is forcing me to be away from my family while cutting my pay. I was one of those 167 votes you could have used to win. I bet I am not the only one that swayed away from my normally progressive views because of your horrible stance on Border Enforcement.

Re: “The Big Don’t Ask

Confusion between SRO and law enforcement? Only for illegals. Isn't that one of our goals?

Re: “Ron and the recount

It is a clear reflection of the very sad times we live in when an ex-liberal such as myself is actually happy that a far-right loony tune named Martha McSally won this election. I am so fed up with Illegals and the entitlements and special treatments that the feds are giving them that I am happy about booting out every single politician who goes along with that goal - even if the replacement is a horrible choice.

Re: “Fare Market Values

They need to think of transit as a product to be marketed, not just a charity that they grudgingly provide for people who can't afford cars. Keep the buses clean, keep them running on time, and enforce the NO SMOKING signs, and I guarantee ridership will go up.

Re: “It’s About Respect

Steve Kozachik is right. These towers exist because rich kids are too precious for regular housing. And now that only rich kids get to go to college, the neighborhood will just have to get used to entitled douchebaggery. Without the civilizing influence of regular people, spoiled brats never grow up.

Re: “It’s About Respect

It must be nice to have parents who pay for your out-of-state tuition at the UofA, your expenses (obviously including an unlimited booze budget), books, a new sporty car, and $1,800.00/month rent at your party residence. I'm sure these young people are all model citizens with a well developed sense of responsibilities imbued by their parents... right....

Re: “It’s About Respect

Too bad it took a news story to set this in motion but at least a few of these boobs are gone. Even worse is that they didn't learn at home the hard lessons they are now learning.
I suspect the reasons the evictions are being challenged have more to do with these parents not wanting the brat back until next summer......if then.

Re: “It’s About Respect

I'm sorry to hear about this, but honestly, when I moved back to Tucson and was shocked to find that the Mosque was utterly surrounded by these brand-new undergraduate apartment monstrosities, I had to chuckle at the inevitability of such a clash. The zoning department sure does have a poor sense of humor. Then again, the dress code of undergraduates offends most decent people within a three-mile radius around campus anyway!

Re: “Ron and the recount

I was waiting in line to vote and the person ahead of me was trying to use his Sonoran driver's license as ID. The registrar patiently explained that it wasn't permissible. Since he didn't speak English, it took a while to sink in. He finally resolved to go to the " Democrat office" to get it straightened out. This wasn't the McSally/Barber district, ( it is the gerrymandered one next to it) . I have no idea if the " office" got him his ID.

Re: “Tables Turned

I am very upset to hear of all this controversy. I found a very sweet little cat that I cannot keep who needs a home and now I don't know what to do. If the Hermitage is no better than the Animal shelter, would it be better for me to take "Charity" there? I want her to have a good chance at a happy life and now I am afraid for her future. Can anyone help me?

Re: “Ron and the recount

Even if this lady wins by this minor margin, she is a one term person who merely took advantage of the mid term low voter turn out, had she tried to run like last time in a normal cycle she would have lost like she did then!

Re: “Ron and the recount

Vroom said in an Nov. 6 filing with the U.S. District Court of Appeals for the Arizona District she was ordered to drop prosecutions of illegal aliens with prior DUI convictions because, in the alleged words of senior ICE official Jim Stolley, “We don’t give a shit about that. Let it go.”

She also details pressure from supervisors to drop prosecutions of illegal aliens with identify theft convictions, including one who registered to vote “not once, but twice, both times falsely claiming to be a U.S. citizen,” according to the filing.

Those of you that criticize the source fall into your own trap of "condoned ignorance."

Re: “Ron and the recount

That's just it AZRLS, you have to desire the truth to actually look for it. Others are content to believe what NBC tells them.
