Re: “So I Elected an Ax Murderer

It's no surprise. Look at where he came from. As CEO of Stone Cold Creamery, the shops use low quality, tasteless ice cream and sell you on the "mixing in" of toppings. With a few sprinkles, chocolate syrup and heath bars, they convince people that it's worth $7. Arizona lags most other states in business growth recovery from the recession. The state spends less than 3/4 of the national AVERAGE per student in school. And then he cuts Community College support from $7 million to ZERO and $104 million out of the state universities. Why will businesses come to Arizona if their population is so poorly educated? Is anyone surprised Tesla didn't come here after the Republicans were pressured by the Auto Dealer Association not to allow Teslas to be sold in the state? If you were Tesla would you bother to invest billions in a state that won't let you sell your cars?

Re: “So I Elected an Ax Murderer

The UA is soliciting budget suggestions. Send an email to You should see the ones I've sent so far, including one this morning with the subject line "you really should have some form of feedback, such as an autoreply" Nothing says "I'm really trying hard to pretend I care" like an autoreply.

Re: “So I Elected an Ax Murderer

He has essentially raised taxes on the regular citizens. Cutting spending to the cities and counties will only make our local taxes increases. Only his friends get a tax cut, and we all get left holding the bag.

Re: “So I Elected an Ax Murderer

Only an idiot would cut taxes in the face of deficits. He's despicable.

Re: “So I Elected an Ax Murderer

I think that we all have to face the facts; we elected a governor who is beholding to special interests, private prisons, private, for profit charter schools, the dark money groups who pull his strings. He simply does not care about our kids, our communities nor our future. The question now is, "What are we going to do about it?"

Re: “So I Elected an Ax Murderer

Arizona, "Meth lab for 'democracy'" -- slash taxes for the rich and powerful and put the regressive burden on those least able to pay...

"We don't need no ed-u-ca-tion..."

But private prisons and the war industry...hooray!

Re: “So I Elected an Ax Murderer

Surely there are places to cut the budget besides where we need the funds the most, like for example, prisons, we pay an average of $50k per year per inmate, over $100k for those on death row. We need to use Sheriff Joe to fix this across AZ and that would save millions, probably could increase the school budget, but for the best option, Vote Ducey out as soon as possible.

Re: “Yolanda in Limbo

"Yolanda was thirty-two. She'd slipped into Arizona from Mexico seventeen years before,..."

What more do you need to know? She doesn't "look like a criminal", she is a criminal. Deport her and put the prisons out of business. That should make every liberal happy.

Re: “Yolanda in Limbo

Another piece of excellent reporting by the indefatigable Margaret Regan. Thank you for your intelligent and passionate coverage of this ongoing human rights outrage!

Re: “Death By Misadventure

Was friends with Lewis Palacios, one of the Palacios son's that went to school at Lowell Smith on DMAFB. Was a real sad time back then. Always wondered how Lewis made out. But I remember like it was yesterday.

Re: “Yolanda in Limbo

"ICE was now required to incarcerate no fewer than 33,400 detainees each and every day. In 2014, Congress tweaked the number up yet again, pushing the mandate to an even 34,000, most of them in for-profit prisons."

This is truly a scam that the Congress has brought upon the people of AZ. And it clearly explains why the prisons want to make every Jose, Yolanda and Raul look like a criminal. There is way too much money in this prison business and the CEO's are laughing all the way to the back at the public's ignorance in understanding their scheme.
