Re: “The Skinny

What, Again: I'm curious and concerned why you felt the need to post a link to an article about a rise in death among whites. How did you feel this was relevant? Are you concerned about the future of white people? Do you think Obama secretly poisoned white people, and we're now seeing the effects? Do you truly think "liberals" are happy about this news? I genuinely would like your (truthful) answers.

Everyone knows the working class pays the largest percentage of sales tax. Ergo, it's the only tax Ducey can love, a mere annoyance to his demographic.

Re: “Nixon Divided

I went to Nixon Library in Yorba Linda CA. I was 18 in 68 walking though the Museum I had the day. I sat and watched on a B&W a 60's Philco TV the Nixon Kennedy debate. In clicked a switch in my mind I was in watching time as a third party. I dont think I could begin to reflect to anyone those times feelings to others there just just mirrors. To me they are alive here eternal.

The most dynamic instrument to me was a artisan parlor table. I looked at this piece of wood carved to be a center of gather. This parlor this table this humble Sears kit home. This carved out 8 acre citrus grove attempt at farming. This place was the Foundation of Richard Nixon. This was the place changed the world in so many ways.

The Parlor table place of gather for a Quaker lessons, Nixon's father had to resume his job as a conductor on one of the short lined runs from Whittier. He would bring home papers from all over the world left on the train, other peoples trash. So they would sit and read and discuss world happening. With so many different views in so many different cultural publications. This from a failed farming attempt his father picking/cleaning other discards. I can see a foundation of resentment and feelings of inadequacy a genius this is motivation.

Re: “On the Theory and Practice of Bullshitting

It is all well and good to attack Republicans as dumb, as Beneal Good would have it. That is a very good indicator of how and why the Democratic Party has lost the executive branch, the legislative branch, soon the judicial branch, a majority of state governorships and state legislatures. Boy, are they ever stupid! By extension, it could be argued looking at the electoral map following the last election, that virtually the entire country is inhabited by dullards of voting age. I'm neither a Republican or a Democrat but this is the sort of commentary that makes it clear we are in deep water politically and locked in a cycle of blindness and tone deaf reaction.

Re: “On the Theory and Practice of Bullshitting

You can't educate Republicans. The comments on this and several other websites confirms that they are uneducated and want their kids to live down to that same standard. Everyone wonders why there aren't many Republicans in institutions of higher learning but I have always contended that their brains are functioning at full capacity most of the time and it isn't sufficient to get them much beyond a high school education. Putting a Republican in a college or university teaching position would be like putting a 2 cylinder engine in a NASCAR vehicle to run the Daytona 500. It's laughable!!

Poorest for populations over 500,000, NOT overall.

Plus the article was published over 2 years ago.

Re: “On the Theory and Practice of Bullshitting

Can anyone provide a logical reason for the Republican general practice of taking funding away from the very things that will make this country richer and more competitive down the road? Their duplicity boggles the mind. On the one hand, they generally support fat cats and corporations in avoiding taxation; evidently failing to realize that fat cats and burgeoning corporate coffers couldn't exist in today's competitive technical world without the creative energy of - who? - highly educated graduates that required years of top notch and expensive education to learn how to squeeze every available cent out of the American money machine and into their offshore accounts.

" Dr. Sisley is a medical director for an Arizona medical marijuana dispensary"

Could you please list the Dispensary as this one should be and I know. It will be on the forefront in counseling on the administration of marijuana. It is a relief to know that having such a well profile and capable administrator like Dr.Sisley. We will soon see use prescribes frequency and need on the package ?

Don't hide under medical protections and just say I can use as needed whenever wherever however I chose because I say I need. and here is my badge of protection the Medical Marijuana Card.
It dont and wont work that way.

Bengal Good:

Wrong, Again is a fake Christian who loves fake news and he's probably the fakest personality you'll ever encounter on this site.

I imagine he would be a sleazy used car salesman if his mama didn't tolerate his stank ass stankin' up the family basement for the last 40+ of his physical (not mental, check out what he posts for proof) adult years.

I wouldn't necessarily label all Republicans as being too stupid or paranoid schizophrenic narcissistic bigots with delusions of grandeur...but the pest known as Wrong, Again definitely fits into all of those categories.

Re: “MMJ Briefs

Interesting view on Campus use of Marijuana on Campus. I wonder are they not allowing any kind of edible on campus. With so many psychotropic mind & thought. With Prozac Zoloft even phenobarbital being widely prescribed.

I am sure while these drugs are legal on a federal level illegal use isn't. I dont believe the UofA police or public security administration is going to check every pill bottle, lunch bag, eye dropper for Cannabis.

What I do believe is the UofA does not want a mobile meandering quasi social group of stoners on Campus. We all know the group I walked in this circle for years.

We all know there is so many delivery systems now for the consumption of Marijuana. If this is the case I blame and point to the Dispensaries for not properly instructing as well as the Physician associated with the dispensary. This is a huge failure on dispensaries owners and the support staff. I have family members that have went to and graduated UofA. While inject themselves as medically required clandestinely dont need a group. And was not a social function

The law passed that allowed Medical marijuana was for MEDICAL. While vocal and Rastafarian New Age have been instrumental. The Bob Marley drum beating, smoke lodge, birkenstock, tye dye, dreadlock, theorist wont be allowed on campus as alternative thinking with smoking finding nirvana.

Re: “On the Theory and Practice of Bullshitting

Its amazing that Safier can so easily recognize a pile of steaming BS when it comes to our President and our Governor, but not our recently "resigned" Superintendent of TUSD schools, HT Sanchez. He is right that our Governor is no friend of education. Nonetheless, Sanchez called in a recent letter, for us all to congratulate Ducey on his desire to give all day kindergarten to ALL of our students--I guess despite Safier's misplaced support, Sanchez doesn't read his articles, like this one--http://www.tucsonweekly.com/TheRange/archi… David makes it clear that ALL of our students are not represented in the governor's plan. In addition to misplaced support for Sanchez, I fear Safier's support for his so called "education community" is also misguided. His friends all supported and pushed through Proposition 123, promising that it would all be used for classrooms and teacher salaries (and then voted to put only a small percentage in that direction). Then they promised us that they'd be "watching those triggers" and making sure that there were steps 4,5 and 6. All I can say is that they must not have grandkids, not a one of them, because at the rate their support is taking us, there will BE no funding for public schools in the future, as the "principal" of the State Trust lands gets whittled away. With friends like these, as they say, who needs enemies?

Re: “The Skinny

Republicans say the word , "LIBERAL" like it was some filthy disease ridden animal but they are too stupid to comprehend that Jesus, Jefferson, Washington, Kennedy and Franklin D. Roosevelt were all LIBERALS otherwise there would be no PROGRESS in the United States or the world because Republicans are content to keep everything the same forever or regress into the past. Republicans are basically paranoid schizophrenic narcissistic bigots with delusions of grandeur and you can quote me on that.

Re: “Does This Mean We Can Call It McSallyCare Now?

McSally should know the reason there are problems with the ACA is that John Roberts let individual states refuse medicaid expansion, thereby devastating the insurance pool, and still the premiums were lower than before the ACA. They chipped away at it, including the insane decision that Hobby Lobby could refuse reproductive care in spite of the fact that they actually owned stock in those companies, and republicans spent upwards of $50 million trying to kill it instead of helping to fix it the way the democrats kept inviting them to do. She's quite the little leader, falling into line with the orange lemmings. Some leadership skills.

Re: “Does This Mean We Can Call It McSallyCare Now?

I'm guessing there is a slim chance Republicare will make it through the house. I'm betting it will be shot down in the senate. If these scenarios play out, the Trump administration and the Republicans in congress will become victims of a possibly paralyzing self-inflicted wound. Repeal and Replace made for a great rallying call during the campaigns but now, like so much of Trump's sturm und drang, reality steps in and the hard work of governing becomes the order of the day over endless campaigning and ego-inflating rallies.

The newest volume of the great American Tragedy is the specter of the opposition's (what remains of the Democratic Party) whimpering on the sidelines still dazed by the thrashings they've received in the latest presidential, congressional, gubernatorial and state legislative elections. Political heroes seem to be emerging but from the ranks of the Republican congress increasingly disgusted by the new administration and its anti-American actions, cabinet appointments, executive orders, proposed budgets and hare-brained legislation. We are in the privileged position of watching the two members of the American duopoly implode. The Democrats and Republicans will survive in some form but will continue to be drained of membership and together represent a minority of voters. That's when the fun begins.

Re: “The Skinny

Here was NV Sen. Cathy Cortez Masto on Twitter yesterday: "Theres no room for hate or discrimination in the White House. I will be an outspoken voice against that every time." Would be so easy for Rep. McSally to do something similar. The fact that she refuses is very telling.
