Re: “The Skinny

"This proposed rule change would make it easier to implement this plan by allowing the Congress to give away every single piece of property we own, for free, and pretend we have lost nothing of any value. Not only is this fiscally irresponsible, but it is also a flagrant attack on places and resources valued and beloved by the American people."

This has become to be recognized as the liberal/progressive mantra. Much like "police brutality" that is yelled after every suspicious stop. Of suspicious activities.

His concern is that the value (to the federal government) has been lost.

You sir have put us $20T in debt. What would you know about value? You don't value all the funds already confiscated from hard working citizens.

...and certification makes an attempt to complete an in depth training to prepare teachers for harsh realities?

Spoken like a true union member and/or educational elitists. Nobody else could possibly be smart enough to handle the rigors of daily life.

Re: “Cannabis and cancer

Hi Everyone, Am Sussy Dei and writing from Netherlands, am so amazed because of the help from the link http://drosojoherbalcure.wixsite.com/ofalldisease i never thought i can get well again because i had battled this Lungs cancer for 4 years now, going from one hospital to the other for cure but none could yield any good results until some few months back when i got Dr Gregory's link online which i followed and contacted the herbal doctor for help. He sent me a herbal medicine with instructions on how i can take them as cure to my lung cancer, and just withing some short time of taking the medicines i noticed a very big changes in my health, i no longer cough out blood, my breath returned to normal and the coughs stopped. I can say now, THAT am FINALLY cured of my cancer. Thank you Dr Gregory and i believe your existence will make the world better. Reach also on email: dr.osojoherbalcureofalldisease@gmail.com

Re: “Cash the Crops

Nick Meyers; Interesting dimensional view of the potential marijuana/hemp revenues and markets.

Had 205 passed we would of had a negotiated medical marijuana division of the Department of Health. Much like market forces competing against one another. If we limit this, it will impact that, so we can study and divert upon need. >> SAME?

So many ask then what would be the needs. DUH! Really? Cash flow and market expansion and availability of market limit competition.
Stifle, control outside interference collaborate with interstate economic federally illegal organizations against commerce laws build immune banking away from federal oversight.

There is no mention of all of these that have their hands in the cookie jar. Let's keep the jar called medical that is really the only way till the feds change. 205 was a market control travesty. We watch what happens in other states how it is administered through multiple existing state agencies. Not this GORILLA called the " Department of Marijuana License and Controls"

WHICH NO OTHER STATE HAS LEGALIZED I SUCH A RECLUSIVE GOVERNMENTAL SEGREGATED WAY AS 205 WANTED TO DO.

Re: “Ducey 'Next Step' Watch: Day 237—Talk Is Cheap Edition. Ducey's Funding-Lite, Destructive Education Proposals.

You are absolutely right David! Giving districts the authority to relax teacher certification will tempt some districts to follow the path of least resistance and hire non-professionals who will not contribute to increases in achievement. Teachers today are forced to deal with a multitude of harsh realities that are challenging even for certified, highly skilled and seasoned professionals Expecting those with no expertise to do the same is crazy!

Re: “Not Going Anywhere

The answer to world poverty and oppression is not for everyone to move to the United States. There are probably 3 billion people on Earth just as deserving as the people written about in the article. Obviously they can't all move here. More poor people are born every year than currenly immigrate to the United States.
Besides, why is the United States a safe place to move to? The rule of law. What does illegal immigration degrade? The rule of law. Whoops!
But the folks who write these articles get to feel good about themselves without actually doing any hard work and that's what liberalism is all about.

Heuisler: You are obviously unable to read an article in context. The section you quoted was describing America of Sanger's era - not Sanger. Sad!

Re: “Not Going Anywhere

If I were a citizen of a foreign country and I wanted to move to the USA why should I go through the trouble and cost of legal immigration when there are all these gullible cities offering defacto citizenship for breaking the law?
Why? There is a good reason Tucson has become a political and economic backwater, truly we are the Detroit of the southwest.

Re: “Community Connections

Engel has always been an inspiration to me, as a fellow Veteran. He has the heart and spirit as an angel. A true philanthropist and all around good person. He deserves everything good that comes to him. I know he will always do right by anyone he comes in contact with.

Re: “Community Connections

Thank you so much for this article. I am almost in tears here. To see something that started so little become what it is today, and to think of what it will be tomorrow leaves me flabbergasted. With every life we are able to touch, PIFT continues to grow in spirit. And although, we will never be able to help every single one of our families in need, we continue to fight this war against poverty! Ms. Danyelle Khmara, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Peace and Love, Engel.
