Re: “Tucson Scientifically Proven More "Exciting" Than Scottsdale, Less Than Tempe & Flagstaff

Another stupid "survey". They are written by people with too much time on their hands or with an agenda of some type.
Tucson Weekly please spare us from this junk. Problem is the people in Scottsdale actually have real jobs. They are not selling tie-dyed T-shirts and Birkenstocks and jewelry to each other and calling it an economy.

A real estate company did a study to find excitement in cities. Read that one more time and think about it a moment. Has the absurdity sunken in yet?

Re: “Babeu's Pre-Protest Robocall For His Self-Promotion Tour

Just look up Babeu at the New Times (Phoenix). You will then know him a LOT BETTER, sex scandals (homosexual) and all. And it's not that he's gay, it's that he uses him partners.

Re: “Op-ed: What Part of Illegal Don't You Understand?

I need to correct my own comment. The immigration law I commented about was signed by George W, not his father George HW. Apologies for my inaccuracy. So Clinton was long gone at this point.

The only decent morning show in town is leaving?
We can't keep good morning entertainment in Tucson, can we?

Re: “Another Lens at the Oracle Protest/Counter Protest

Clifford...

Since it was USAmerican policies and support for the decades of right-wing rule in Honduras (still), Guatemala and El Salvador, and the phony USAmerican war on drugs(tm), that created the conditions and maintains the drug cartels that these children are fleeing -- Yep we owe them PLENTY...

As for a nation of laws, ironically enough Obama is following a bush era LAW that requires a fair hearing for each of these children before they can be deported or allowed to stay...or did you MISS that part on fox noise?

Re: “Andrew Thomas Will Fight the Mexicans, Gays and Liberals, According to His Terrible New Ad

The main reason migration has slowed down is because the USAmerican "economy" has tanked while their Communities have gotten marginally better...

Arizona Republicans have NO ability to comprehend cause and effect...

Re: “Another Lens at the Oracle Protest/Counter Protest

Sorry folks, the starving children in this country can't be fed, we need the A-10 more, we must keep the musket factory open at any cost.

With any luck our starving kids will survive long enough to be the soldiers for our next push for democracy in the middle east

Meanwhile, a US citizen has already been killed by one of these catch-and-release "minors."

Re: “Op-ed: What Part of Illegal Don't You Understand?

"bslap,
George HW Bush signed a law stating that children immigrating from non border countries (Honduras, Guatemala, El Salvador for example) NOT be deported. We are following a Republican sponsored law."

And the law Obama is violating was passed under Clinton. Doesn't matter because I didn't say we shouldn't follow the law.
I said this article was hypocritical when it chastised protesters for not following a law when it has lauded other examples of not following the law. It's all based on whether the author agrees with the law or not.

Immigration reform is just cover for higher immigration, lower wages, and more environmental degradation to support high profits for a few. They lead liberals around by making them pissed off at conservatives and appealing to their guild so they get behind immigration reform that's against their own interests.

Re: “Another Lens at the Oracle Protest/Counter Protest

Well we are suppose to be a nation of laws. Unfortunately it only pertains to the citizens of the US. Anybody else can break the laws and for years and get away with it. There's a right way and wrong way to become a US citizen. And unfortunately all the Illegal Aliens do it by breaking the law and we let them get away with it. When we the people try to stop all the Illegal Aliens we get called haters, bigots, racists and other names. See charity begins at home and when this country has all it's children off the streets and feed, clothed and housed then I will have no problem helping other country's. Until then I want all the Illegal Aliens prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

Re: “Op-ed: What Part of Illegal Don't You Understand?

Regarding so-called "gang" affiliations: Let's not forget that Sycamore Canyon Academy, where the no-show bus was supposedly headed, is in fact a boys reform school that already houses dozens of young men with criminal and gang histories. It's a good program, and from what I understand it really does help those kids. But please. If people are going to be up in arms about "gang members" occupying those premises, then they need to take a look at what's already there.

Re: “Op-ed: What Part of Illegal Don't You Understand?

I can't "like" this column enough. I'm so sick of hearing that "Obama" is sending these kids when it all starts with that 2008 law that was, if not unanimously, then damn near unanimously passed in both houses of Congress before the then-president (NOT Obama!) signed it. Change or amend that law. Don't take it out on a bunch of scared kids.

This whole thing would have been hilarious if it were a dark comedy, a la "Citizen Ruth," but watching it in real life was just sad, sad, sad.

Re: “Op-ed: What Part of Illegal Don't You Understand?

Does anyone remember Elian Gonzalez? I might not recall his name correctly. The Cuban boy whose mother died escaping from Cuba and the battle to get him American citizenship, which he (at 6 years old) wasn't particularly seeking. What a tempest that one was! What was your individual position back then and why? Is there any relationship to your position on these refugees?
