Re: “Did Republican Budget Cuts Hurt the Fight Against Ebola?

Budget cuts have consequences. While they may not have specifically made any difference with Ebola, cutting spending at the CDC has certainly cut into our ability to respond to disease outbreaks.

Re: “When Will the Star Get Rid of Mugshot Galleries?

Totally agree - shaming people for clicks with mugshots is about as low as a newspaper can go without outright lying.

Re: “Orr Asks Fellow Lawmakers to Get Creative with Marijuana

Gee, I thought cutting taxes every year was supposed to have us rolling in dough. It's hilarious that Republicans think raising taxes is insane, but would consider legalizing pot.

NO! it (Ebola/Obola) was planned by man (government) for population control world wide and here in the states. Planned Marshal Law??

Re: “Did Republican Budget Cuts Hurt the Fight Against Ebola?

With all of the wasteful spending going on in DC, for this author to even intimate that one party is guiltier than the other, is tantamount to Obama telling us that "you can keep your doctor" or "not even a smidgen of corruption"! If the media, like this pathetic excuse for a reporter, would start being fair and honest, maybe then, we could start seeing DC getting it's act together.

Re: “Did Republican Budget Cuts Hurt the Fight Against Ebola?

The reference to education wasting the money and asking for more is just unbelievable. The voters wanted money to go to education and the legislature used it otherwise to balance the budget. I am surprised these people aren't in jail. Education needs money. We have an extreme shortage of teachers because they are paid so little. Go into the schools and see if you think money is being wasted. It never ceases to amaze me how little know about education and what is going on. Back to the original issue...... Yes there is no way the NIH could possibly predict what needed the money the most. THey do the best they can.

Re: “Did Republican Budget Cuts Hurt the Fight Against Ebola?

When the world's leading research and development institution, the NIH, has a FLAT BUDGET for 10 YEARS, many things have to be put on a slower financial track. IF the NIH's crystal ball had been working 10 years ago & could have predicted that Ebola would have an unprecedented outbreak on the African continent, they would have undoubtedly rearranged their priorities. I'd love to know the citations for the financial info & timing of the previously noted study on a "Lesbian" issue. If all else fails lay down a smoke screen of unpopular issues to prevent real, bottom line scrutiny! Bottom line? You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear, & the NIH has been treated by a Republican Congress like the red-headed step children at the family reunion for 10 years!! It was welcomed under Bush & expanded under Obama because of the rabid hatred for his administration & anything funded that might help the whole world!

Re: “Editor's Note

I had no quibbles about your statewide endorsements. My criticism was about your lack of an endorsement for the candidate running against Eva Dong in the Sunnyside Unified School District race for school board.

Re: “Sandwiches on the Avenue

Damn. Leaving out Hopyard in a profile of sandwiches on 4th avenue? It's not my favorite either, but to leave them off completely is just cold. You've got O'Malley's on here for christs sake. Hopyard literally specializes in sandwiches. O'Malley's specializes in being a shithole.

Re: “Orr Asks Fellow Lawmakers to Get Creative with Marijuana

The GOP realizes that the monies that should be trickling down from the sky as a result of their whacky policies just ain't going to fill a thimble, let alone a state treasury anytime soon. Also it gives them the new "moderate" camouflage they need to try to actually win an election.

As my friend remarked, "If there is no money coming in, how can they steal and give to the rich"

Teabaggers! Wake up! Your ideologues have feet of clay

C'mon dude ,,,
"SKEW-ed" is the word
NOT "skew-ER-ed" ! sheesh. (*)
( and you repeated it like 3x. man )
You should be a little bit red-faced on this one Bruiser.
( someone as steadfastly erudite as yourself, ...Eh, up until THIS. )
Don't repeat this one again.
Otherwise -

Keep up the good work for new LD10 along w Steph.

Re: “Retro Restaurants

East Speedway had Paulos, Vitos and Von's which were 50's & 60's Continental Style. The Jet Set hung out at The Barrons on South Wilmot in the early 70's. Wongs on 22nd was great for Chinese for quite a few years. OK Coral had some great steaks. I loved the Green Goddess at Sneaky Petes back in the late 60's.
When "The Bistro" opened on Broadway near Kolb, it was the most expensive restaurant in Tucson. Last but not least were the two Johnie's on Speedway. I loved those burgers and the crinkle fries. YUMMY delish!

Re: “Did Republican Budget Cuts Hurt the Fight Against Ebola?

This ad is fear mongering in its lowest form. The Democrats must really believe that their supporters are brain-dead idiots to feed them this load of crap and expect them to swallow it.

Re: “RIP Sean Collins, aka DJ Sean T

I knew Sean for 20 years. I would drive down from Phoenix and flew in from out of state just to see and more importantly spend time with him. We were friends and brothers outside of the club. I have brought many people over the years to see and experience what he would bring, which is happiness and joy. Once you were a friend, you were family to him. I love and will miss him dearly...

Re: “Live On The Web Saturday: "PUBLIC Education Nation" From The Network For Public Education

"Then may I ask, who monitors the profit motives of the government?" Rat T

Groups like Public Education Nation - watchdogs of the government-education-for profit industry. Education is the 2nd largest market in the US (over $3 trillion annually). If you like the military industrial complex, you'll love these guys starting with the Gates Foundation and Pearson.

"Market based competition leaves the door wide open for competitors in the trade school arena.
Where are they?

See above but add in ITT Tech, Corinthian, and all the predatory trade schools. You can check out their share values on the big board. They do more harm than good and leave their student victims in financial binds they will never free themselves from.
