Re: “The Skinny

What about disclose of that middle school texting one another in class (and I'm only assuming they are texting "one another")? Disclose it or put your phone away. It's especially childish when they do it while citizens are speaking. If it's a county paid for phone we are entitled. I'm quite sure it's not Huck ordering pork chops or Ray tallying his graft for retirement.

Re: “The Skinny

Chuckles,

If you managed a budget exceeding 1 billion dollars a year and did that successfully for a few decades...what would you expect to be paid? Are the taxes that you pay excessive? Maybe you can cite specific instances of financial mismanagement on the part of Pima County?

Just more hot air, baseless accusations. Is Chuckles ... Ally Miller?

Re: “The Skinny

Partial agreement. There is little difference between Sanders and Trump when it came to primaries. Just like the UK yesterday, voters in the lower and middle classes are sick and tired of the "party elite." It hasn't worked. Both sides are looking to outsiders to do the hard work of solving the problems that the parties have not.

Long story short? Hillary is the only old guard, lie to your face, insider politician that is left. The public is now seeing how power and money have totally corrupted the Clinton machine. Sanders supporters aren't going back, and much as Raul will be rewarded for bringing them back to the "plantation."

Voters are finally paying attention and they are smarter than that.

Re: “The Skinny

Nobody, but nobody, talks about the extraordinary feat of Sen. Sanders to run a competitive campaign with small dollar donations against the Clinton Machine and a DNC with its thumb on the scale. Meanwhile the candidate who swears she'll reign in Wall St. and wants to end Citizens United is funded by and beholden to big money. That campaign promise is simply unbelievable.

Re: “The Skinny

After the defeat of progressives in the UK yesterday, Bernie may be nobody's problem. But Hillary has plenty. After joining our President's threats of "moving the British to the back of the line" blew up in their faces, it would appear the world is tiring of governmental control of economies. Add that to immigration out of control with open borders, and they just said NO.

November we just may Trump them.

Raul telling you how to vote?

Re: “The Skinny

"Grijalva was one of the few members of Congress to endorse Bernie Sanders, but now he says it's time for 'Bernie or bust' crowd to get behind Hillary Clinton, even if they do think she's too close to Wall Street or a neocon warmonger."

Here's one problem with this idea: if we were to "get in line," the Democrats will continue to use the progressive base for elections and then ignore us again and again. They will never respect the progressives unless we carry the ‪#‎BernieOrBust‬ strategy to its 50 state conclusion in November.

Problem two: try to imagine our credibility if we "get in line" after Bill Clinton encouraged Trump to get more involved with Republican politics. We would immediately stop being revolutionaries and start being sheep. Sorry Grijalva, ‪#‎SheepNoMore‬. Trump is Clinton's problem to solve, not progressive's.
