A bum by any other name would surely smell as bad.

Re: “Today in Unlikely News: Jan Brewer, 2016 Presidential Contender

Growing up little girls were fed ideas of their one dream. You will marry a wonderful man some day and become a wonderful person a wonderful wife. I Suppose I can only speak for myself, being that I always believed that throughout my childhood. I have learned a lot in my early twenties. One major theory that I have grown partial to is that you do have certain dreams and not just one, but many throughout the course of your life. Jan Brewer has my vote for anything she wants to set her mind to. All of her colleges will not stay with her forever. People stay in your life just long enough to teach you valuable lessons, that no other human but themselves could possibly teach you. These people will imprint on your soul, but with that passion often comes tragedy. I believe these are those people which your connections intensity starts as an ember, and it's intensity grows over time, creating true passion for a fight for freedom. The term 'life isn't fair' seems so fitting for liberals. We humans are overly capable of wreaking havoc in one another's life. No one really knows how to fix the damage after it's done. I beleive that Jan Brewer has a purpose in life and I get that. I support Jan in her life choices. God Speed!

Re: “Transgender Asylum Seeker in Immigration Detention Demands Release After Facing Sexual Abuse

This is a man. Why wouldn't they detain him with other men. Deforming yourself doesn't change your sex. I see no reason to put a man in a female detention center. You can call him what you want and he can deform himself all he wants but he is still a man. There are no "Co-ED" prisons in the United States.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

The Mexican its right. Sonora its the perfect example of race and culture mix; actually, european and native´s are blended as no other part of Mexico does. In central and south México, european and native family backgrounds are unlikely to get mixed. In Sonora, european and native are so mixed that Sonorans don´t even know it. The Opata tribe, its totally gone. Not because the where exterminated, no, the Opatas women fell in love with the european man coming to explore the dangerous gold mines in the inhospitable old west (most of the times they came with no family). So Opata culture "disappeared", giving birth to the Rio Sonora culture. In Sonora, almost everyone has either Yaqui, Mayo, Opata, Pápago or Seri backgrounds. That is one of the main factors that model this region of North American culture (Arizona included).

Re: “Downtown's District Tavern Looking to Relocate in 2015

All diversity and authenticity of the people are being systematically decimated literally by the illuminati, by phasing out businesses and adding laws/regulations and fixing prices on things across the world and especially in the U.S. now. Agenda 21is in motion, we cant let it happen. We need to stand up for ourselves once and for all.

I am glad The District will be moving and staying alive.

Re: “Reading Diane Douglas' "State of Education" Tea Leaves

Real World is if pre K to say 5, 6, 7 or 8th grade included a second language or even a third, the students would pass any and all achievement tests. It is called brain connectivity.

Re: “Fight for GMO Labeling Makes a Comeback in the AZ Legislature

Unless and until you are acquainted in the reality of GMO's it may appear this type of HB is silly, or "stupid stuff;" however, it is imperative that labeling of GMO's become required practice in order to protect one another from health compromise. Please consider reading the information and legal case rulings to learn the reality we are being faced with, as the information is enlightenly!

The downtown will not grow up until those children are forced to leave. Occupy Tucson is really hurting Rio Nuevo.

Re: “The Sisters Who Came to Stay

As one of their former students I can say with out hesitating that they are truly amazing women. Tough as nails but some of the kindest, and most generous giving women you would ever want to meet. What they taught me has never left me. I learned how to sew, manners and respect for everything from people to each creature on God's earth, how to pray,how to sing, how to dance, my passion for world history, and Even the way I speak. I find myself teaching my own children things I was taught by the sisters. I went to Holy Angel's from pre school all the way to 8th grade and was a very proud graduate. I remember going home after my first day of my freshman year in Globe high school and being so upset and I'm tears because not only was it my first time ever being in a public school but it was so different. The kids were loud, out of order, mean, and you can imagine the embarrassment of being the only one to stand up because an adult entered the room... (something we were taught to do At Holy Angel's but apparently we don't do that in public Schools) We, were taught a great deal of respect for adults at Holy Angel's. Me and my other brother's and sisters 5 of us total all went to Holy Angel's and all 5 of us went from pre school to graduate 8th grade. At one point my Mom and Dad had all 5 of us in Holy Angel's. We were all taught by the sister's from sister Leonie, to sister Una, sister Breeda, sister Anne, sister Paul, sister Rosalynn, sister Agnes, and sister Concillio. Even my father graduated from Holy Angel's. My favorite thing was when we did our Christmas pageant that Sister Leonie would put together every year. It was a little play with different themes every year but it told people What the true meaning of Christmas was. I still remember the songs. From "silent night" done in sign language of course, to "Celebrate", "come all ye faithful" and every students favorite "I can feel the Christmas spirit in the air" I still remember every word of it. The school was absolutely amazing In every single way you can imagine. We had small classes so you got a lot of attention. Every child's education meant something to the sister's. They wanted you to be the Best person you could be. I use to love when we would have mass inside the convent where the sister's lived. They had the most beautiful little chapel inside. Also religion was a very important class. The amazing thing about it was we had so many different religions in Holy Angel's believe it or not. We had Mormon's, Baptist, Presbyterians, non denominationals, Lutheran, just about every religion you could think of and we were never ever judged because we were different. It was embraced. If anything we were taught to be tolerant of others and taught that just because you weren't a Catholic didn't mean God loved you any less. I think tolerance should be taught more in school's nowadays. Sister Leonie brought the student of the month to Globe too. One student from each grade was picked each month and put out for all to see with something written by your teacher of why you were picked for the month to be honored. The students had their pictures taken and put in the Arizona silverbelt newspaper and a picture of you and what your teacher wrote was put up on it'd bulletin board outside for everyone to see all month. It was a great Honor and soon all the other school's in the Globe-Miami area did the same. I was given a great Gift from my parents by having given me and my siblings one of the very finest educations in Globe. I was truly blessed to have these women play such a vital role in my life... now at the age of 32 I think back and realize that these women made me what I am today. Their love and desire for me and every student they taught to be whatever we wanted to be was such an unselfish gift that can never be repaid. Just paid forward to other's and shared with our own children. Thank you to all the Presentation sisters for all your hard work and devotion to us. It was truly a God sent gift that keeps on giving.

Re: “It's Official: AZ Can't Block DREAMers from Getting Driver's Licenses

Why do losers always paint a rosy picture on things. The rightful name is schemers. There will be no need for them to follow the law or become good citizens because leftists will give them what they want free. No work, no responsibility, just free stuff.

"Dream pod" homeless advocates using downtown park. What a joke. Fancy names for bums, and I could add some more descriptive facts but the leftists would, well you know what leftists do.
