Re: “Ducey Orders Investigation into Planned Parenthood Arizona

Without Planned Parenthood where would my friends and I received free condoms in High School? This helped out so much with shy friends.

There should be a Planned Parenthood in every city. I teenager should be able to receive a free abortion without consent from her parents.

This is where Republicans get retarded, all the freedom from government and big brother, my body and privacy goes out the window when Zombie Jesus steps into the room.

Education and free birth control needs to be paramount at schools and at home. If that happens we won't even need to worry about abortions.

Where are the feminists when there are issues that actually matter? Walking in another Slut parade or blogging about "man-spreading" I guess.

Re: “Zachary's Pizza Is Closing

Super-sad. We haven't been in Tucson in years and are planning a trip. Z's was the first place we looked up, and the tragedy of its closing is brand new to us.

Re: “Josh Marshall: "Trump Is the Frankenstein's Hair Monster"

Feather merchants, During the early days of the US Army, perhaps as early as the Revolutionary War, it was used to describe unscrupulous merchants (perhaps precursors of Haliburton) who would include rocks and other heavy objects to add weight to the feathers sold to the government that were used for soldiers' pillows, mattresses and such, so to increase the contractors profits. The only thing worse is the yes master sycophants that trail behind the bigmouth bus that carries all their fears, justifications and bigotry with a big US flag on one side and a confederate flag on the other side.

Re: “Josh Marshall: "Trump Is the Frankenstein's Hair Monster"

The Tucson Weekly must be getting hard-up for news. Josh Marshall has a lot of balls calling Trump a joke, really? The biggest joke is the asshole in the Whitehouse right now; Obama has fucked America upside down along with the dimwit democrats. If a republican came out and just write a law letting illegals stay here we would never hear the end of it, along with his health care crap that places most everybody from 40 hrs. a week to 20. Josh Marshall is the fucking joke along with all the other bleeding heart librals.

Most use a little barley and alcohol. It normally takes six months, unless you put it on high.

Re: “Ducey Orders Investigation into Planned Parenthood Arizona

Sorry ChetDude but i wondered who was behind the defensive attack on the video.

Planned Parenthood released a lengthy attack on the Center for Medical Progress founder David Daleiden yesterday, and today pro-abortion RH Reality Check published an infographic that purports to show the connections between pro-life groups that had a hand in Daleiden’s videos that are now going viral all over the world.

RH Reality Check is a product of the pro-abortion UN Foundation, founded by Ted Turner and headed for many years by former Democrat Senator Tim Wirth, who was recently an honored guest at the Vatican conference on “climate change.”

Is your next endorsement from the Pope?

Re: “Josh Marshall: "Trump Is the Frankenstein's Hair Monster"

I'm beginning to think that the Republicans are paying him to take the heat. The Left is frothing at the mouth and all the other candidates are getting away with murder.

I miss you Vince Foster. RIP

Re: “Doug Ducey and Andy Biggs: "Don't Tell Me What I Don't Want to Hear."

Sorry but we only need to look to our airports and see what law enforcement run by the government has done to TSA. Why not give it some time and see what the long term results are? It is actually a British idea that has been working just peachy across the pond.

By the way does it insulate taxpayers from lawsuits of prisoners?

Thank you Irma. I got the same impression from the article and it didn't make any sense.

How is a bigmouth racist with dodgy business ethics going to help take our country back? If you think he'd care about anyone but the 1% you're kidding yourself. We may as well have Comcast the Corporation become president. Remember: they're people too.

Re: “Barrio Hollywood: If You Don't Live in the Barrio, You're Not Allowed to Vote in Our Neighborhood Association

The title suggests that businesses are not welcome at neighborhood meetings or that they are not invited and encouraged to contribute ideas and suggestions. The residents wish to continue working with and for businesses and welcome them to the meetings. There was a lot of speculation as to how exactly Carelton managed to get elected by the neighborhood which planted the seed of mistrust for many. Unfortunately, many businesses who have nothing to do with the underlying motives for the seeming division feel personally attacked and unwanted.

I'm very interested to see who will cover this issue (and its many layers) thoroughly and without bias.

Did the TPD make any arrests? It looks like Steve Leal in the middle of the room.

Re: “Ducey Orders Investigation into Planned Parenthood Arizona

Debbie I think you are missing the real point here. That is, why do they support abortion?

Here are the cold hard facts:

On average, 1,876 black babies are aborted every day in the United States.

This incidence of abortion has resulted in a tremendous loss of life. It has been estimated that since 1973 Black women have had about 16 million abortions. Michael Novak had calculated "Since the number of current living Blacks (in the U.S.) is 36 million, the missing 16 million represents an enormous loss, for without abortion, America's Black community would now number 52 million persons. It would be 36 percent larger than it is. Abortion has swept through the Black community like a scythe, cutting down every fourth member." http://www.blackgenocide.org/black.html

So while they hold up signs that say "black lives matter," they are getting help snuffing those out those very lives they want you to think need protection.

Then, to make matters worse there is this:

A highly significant 1993 Howard University study showed that African American women over age 50 were 4.7 times more likely to get breast cancer if they had had any abortions compared to women who had not had any abortions.

One could make the point that it is nothing more than government and institutional racism. Promoted by the left.

And then they criticize you because of their guilt. Don't let that affect you.

The bylaws are inclusive, HOWEVER to vote on what happens with the neighborhood, in the best interest of the neighborhood. You must be a resident.

Re: “Ducey Orders Investigation into Planned Parenthood Arizona

ChetDude I am hoping that you can translate this one for me. I guess I just don't get it:

“Let me just figure out what others are getting, and if this is in the ballpark, then it’s fine, if it’s still low, then we can bump it up. I want a Lamborghini.”-PP Medical Director Mary Gatter

Who is Jonathan Hoffman? A paid employee of the Goldwater Institute? This post is written like a GI press release.

Re: “Arizona's Teacher Shortage (and How To Fix It)

David - Here's a comment that was posted by a TUSD teacher on one of the blog posts you wrote last fall. It seems worth considering this excellent comment "from the trenches" again in the context of your reflections on the reasons for our problems with teacher shortages:

"David, as a member of the ranks down in the proverbial trench of the classroom, saying that TUSD is a failure is ridiculous... it's too big and has too many people of widely varying skill to make that kind of blanket statement. There is much good to say about many TUSD people and programs. What *would* be an accurate to say is that TUSD -over the long haul- has implimented SO MANY new programs, systems, protocols, mandates, structures, training and put so many Band-Aids on so many boo boos that we've grown weary and skeptical. EEI? Down our throats for an entire year. Now? Zip. SuccessMaker? Choking on it for two years. Now? Late implementation, and oh, it's un-supported this year, don't call us. Harcourt literacy... "follow with ultimate fidelity!" Now? I can't even get a replacement workbook after multiple requests and there are no less than three different literacy approaches in place in my school alone. Man, I'm tired of the wheel being reinvented with nothing to show but wasted hours and blown money. As a result, my trust in leadership has wavered and morale just plain sucks. I'm only 15 years into this TUSD gig, imagine how strung out on this bologna the ultra long timers are. *sigh*"

Re: “Ducey Orders Investigation into Planned Parenthood Arizona

So, what's the going reimbursement rate for tissue donation? How is this determined? And, for all of you who support abortion and tissue "donation", what's your view on animal testing?
