Re: “Told You So: Gawker Names Arizona Worst State

Fuck all of Arizona in its little self absorbed ass. I have watched people in this state be the rudest and meanest dumb pieces of shit on Earth. Come down here and try to drive with these mongrels and asswipes...btw to you losers who go on about how much you love this state you probably do not live in the bigger cities, you probably have nice homes away from shit you would not survive interacting with. Yuppies meth heads and assholes are all you offer. I have been trapped here for 22 years and this place is shit. You who live here for the most part are also shit. Think about how "nice" you all are and then kindly fuck yourselves.

Re: “Cannabis and cancer

In Dec. of 2014 I was diagnosed with terminal cancer at the age of 39. The doctors could give me no hope. I did have chemo and radiation, the doctors thought that could prolong my life for a little while. In March of 2015 I had surgery, thats when they found that the cancer had spread to my lymp nodes in my right hip area and couldn't get it all with the surgery. Now it looked like 3-6 months is all I would live. It was a very aggressive form of colorectal cancer.

While searching through the internet i saw lots of testimonies about how people called cured of cancer with the help of cannabis oil, so i had to try if i could get cured and still say my own testimony. I saw this email and contacted them in hope of getting the oil and it was delivered to me after taking the oil as prescribed i went for more test and found out that most of the cancer cells were dead and i want everyone to know that am perfectly fine and happy with my family.

Re: “Eyes on the Streets

I recently experienced homelessness ( but in a car) for about 9 months up in Oregon. I don't live there, I just go to visit my mom, and have a trailer in storage that I use in an RV park for a couple of months. But as I was packing my car to return to the desert, I was s taying with my mom after re-storaging my trailer. My brother had me arrested for nonsense charges, but also had me banned from my moms (he's 68, and living in my moms without rent), so I stayed in my car assuming it would end quickly. It never did, and it just dragged on and on without progress, and I finally had to leave because i couldn't survive alone like that with my depression, isolated and unable to return to MY LIFE in the reset. I had sold my place so woul d be free to go anywhere. It was either back to Tucson or Las Cruces, and I'm in LC.
I took ALOT OF PICTURES during that time, and love your project. I also learned SOOO much about the hidden world of homeless people and the ugly degrading parts of a system that is praised for their noble efforts. Bullshit! They help you sink deeper into despair, and ensure that you know what you are.
I write alot, and especially about my view from the other side of the wall that separates those who have homes, and those who are publicly scrutinized 24/7.
If anyone is interested in collaborating on a project in this subject, please contact me. I need to be part of something again.

Re: “Media Watch

Even though the Star laid off a ton of people in 2011 (five years ago yesterday, in fact), they had been steadily hiring people again in the last couple years. There have been quite a few names in the paper that are completely unfamiliar to the folks who were let go in the big bloodletting. It seems maybe they couldn't afford to be making all those hires after all. Sad. Meanwhile, notice who DIDN'T get the ax this time (or any other time) -- any member of the top-heavy management.

Re: “Cannabis and cancer

My Mother was diagnosed with stage four colon cancer about a one year ago, she has had an extremely difficult journey. She has had two rounds of chemotherapy, one round or Y90 Radiation and now is experiencing liver failure. Jaundice, a weak appetite and depression are a few of her symptoms. I'm wondered what other treatment options she has (such as a liver transplant or a clinical trial) and also how long she has to live. My mother is my best friend and hero, she endures so much as your loved ones do too.but a cousin of mine came to our rescue by ordering this hemp oil from a foundation in US,and so far the medication has proved my mother can do things she never could do before,i am so happy so i decided to use this medium to alert all cancer patient that with a good hemp oil,you can definitely beat cancer.if you happen to be in need of this medication,you can contact the foundation with this email:( for more information and the delivery process. Thanks and God bless you.

Re: “The Republican Party's Education Platform

Privatization of everything is the long term goal of the Republicans. Then we can contend with monsterous corporations (as we are doing right now) running our country. How easy is it to condem public education as non-functioning with funding cut to the bone. Education is no different then insurance. When they (charter schools) can pick which students to include, their earnings improve, as does their scores. This is no different then excluding the sick with "existing conditions" from insurance. There are plenty of very effective education models that are time tested in other countries. The gap will only grow wider with the need for technology in every child's hands. Inner city schools will not be handing out iPads.

Re: “Danehy

As a matter of societal concern I would love to meet with the local advocates dispensary owners who ever in a Town Hall. To be done public one on one or with 3 advocates with time allowed. This will be non personal testimonies of anykind to start. It will be about what will happen if this proposal is passed. Why it might not and what needs to be done to get a comprehensive social and moral direction for Marijuana. Tell MPP to go BACK with Marion Berry they have more relevance there.

Think Nitzel will go for that?

Re: “Danehy

Tom; I am an old guy, tradesman, business owner, parent, and grew up a mormon.

Basically I find your profiling of people akin to Archie Bunker and his profiling for his times. To me it is old altruistic to what the MMJ was about. I see the pandering of the media for advertising dollars. We see the media going to the Public relations/lobbyists outlets and getting spoon feed information going back to the media outlets thinking they are informed.

The hair farming tie died birkenstock body illustrated skin pierced Bob Marley group. Is not the Large part of Marijuana consumers or the advocates merely just the vocal advocates and consumers.

Personal testimonies are really not relevant are they ? I spent 6 months in a burn ward. I had 3 broken bones before I was 12 abusive parent. I still have chinese shrapnel in me. Arrested for vagrancy thrown on a Texas chain gang for 30 days, I was in a automobile accident that killed my mother drunk driver. In the trades I broke 3 fingers several cuts to many to count. Now I am old I want to grow pot in my yard away from kids not a party recreational enjoyment or social engagement. SO WHAT

Basically I dont ask myself if getting up today is worth it. If i kept up the regimented treatments of opiates stantons I was angry, nobody wanted be be around me and dont tell me how what the values in my life are I won't think of yours.

As far as workplace I was one of the guys that took dropouts taught them a trade how to work and how to relate. I can't tell you how many workplace accidents I have been involved in. For the last 20 years I was a superintendent for DOD contracts never under 90 million. On to of that I have spent 10 years doing USACE airports and transportation. I have seen how the workplace drug policies are implemented and enforced. With second third and fourth tiered vendors the policies are arbitrary and and enforced capricious at best. Most all are drive by the insurance industry and the legal feeders from that.

I dont have the slightest clue on your social fabric and dont care to really. I find most CPA's, media writers, lawyers, civil servants, are just kids that are hooked on doing homework the rest of their lives. they actually contribute little or nothing to society just a parasite. Those that take the compilation of their efforts and try to make policy find the study was not relevant or biased let's do it over. How's that for profiling thoughts from the field no wonder we have a world of well bean counters.

That is the sentiment that drives young to things like ISIS. I have had jobs with over 2 million man hours worked and only one recordable 3 stitches. I won several safety awards but found that most went to those that golfed and banquited the USACE. Even tho I have a remarkably better safety record. at any given time I knew there was Marijuana on a military base. I did not know who what or when by at time winds prevailed. I know I was not the only nose on site. I did not want to alienate the workforce I lost 60% of the workforce when ICE did gate checks at the constructions in EL PASO

Now let's get to this abortion of law, rights, civil concerns, called protection of children with prohibition . We see the biggest charlatans that have come out of the cesspool since snake oil and laudanum pushers were stopped by Harry Anslinger and the BNDD in 1936. And this ADA (arizona dispensary association) are using children to market their product. I find that to be worst kind of human being on the face of the earth. Since 1937 we have imprisoned killed stole lied every unscrupulous disgusting thing imaginable in the protection of children. Alas we still have a problem could the economic disparity be more relevant to children? So we tax and redistribute in the good of the children and then come in as a healer as they promote those that dont comply.

It is well known by now that Marijuana is the highway, the staple of the illegal drug world. To eliminate that would have economic upheaval all across the illicit drug world as well as the industry built to contain that. So really we need to not just slam the door what turmoil would that bring. Drug dealers now dealing in untaxed alcohol tobacco and powders?

I have raised 4 children here in Az in a blue collar atmosphere. Very limited on money and opportunity. I chose Flowing Wells as the best I could do for schooling. All of my children were subject to ridicule ostracization for one reason or another. One son arrested for shoplifting profiled inside the school district as a stoner ganger. This was the best education that I was ever able to give him. This was a platinum lined cloud. I was able to show him how to manipulate the system. Showed how the court system worked and how bogus it really was. I was able to save him as a juvenile before the social pundits got a bite. To sum this up he understood in his junior year graduated Magnum Cum Laude High school and had to fight for that It was me appealing to Peticone at the time and it was awarded. Now at the age of 35 he is Vice President of Multi National Corp with a book of business of 900 million annually. He can do this because he tears down the bullshit that most hide behind. Oh yes graduated UofA dean's list. all my kids did. Arbitrated this year with the NLRB and settled garbage haulers union deal from San Francisco to Seattle 2 weeks no legal firm. Because he knows the bean counting and media parasites that need to feed also. A little trimmer plate there

Bottom line this CRLMA is trying to build a department akin to that of Insurance. It is not drawn by some stoners it was drawn by prosecutors and industry insiders to promote marijuana and using children to do it. By gifts to school and supposed enforcement that has not worked since Jesus walked the face of the earth certainly not since 1937.

If we in Arizona are going to have multiple departments that license vice in one form or another gambling, alcohol, marijuana, tobacco, do we need a separate and different for that combine them all. and allow 12% to be given to a rotating account and let Members of the BAR go after nonconformists and attach for costs to enforce like the EPA. Any attorney can prosecute if licensed in federal court to represent the federal government for violation of environmental laws. Then can lein for the cost of prosecution for violation of dispensaries and growers and processors distributors smoke shops. And attorney can prosecute on their own under civil action but alas this CRLMA would stop that as they will be a regulatory agency immune do we really want that.

Yea the contentious media and industry parasites that propagate the profiling nonconformists as red neck conformists, Republicans remember it was Ben Stein who first smoked pot in Nixon's White House. Then went home played chess and Wrote some of his speeches. Marijuana has transcended all walks of society and has for the last. 30 years get a clue

Yea Danehy You're a profiling misunderstood loner thinking that you have a finger on the pulse. This is why it won't pass. We who have had a life and see how things work won't let this go we have more respect for children and society. With this story Archie Bunker lives

Re: “The Skinny

"I will give Ratt my approval. He's right."

There are a few things wrong with this statement:

1) At least one of Ratt's personalities has identified themselves as a woman. The other 5 personalities, well, who knows?
2) "Please retire McCain" is beyond correct. I say beyond correct because what should be said is, "Retire now, you useless self serving P.O.S." The Maverick has not given a shit about the average person since sometime in the 1980s. Hell, the way things are going now, he probably never actually did. I'm sure his first wife would have some interesting things to say about that.
3) "McSally has earned (!?) re-election." Just as franklymydears said: "Then I read his (sic?) second sentence." Enough Said.
4) The statement was posted by Julie Heston. Check out the other ignorant horse shit she (He? Who knows?) has posted in the past. Son of Enough Said.
