Re: “2014: Voter Turnout "Signaled a New Stage of Disintegration"

Ferguson has proven not to be oppression. Some folks don't understand the law, self defense and grand juries.

Just because you believe something, that does not make it true.

Re: “The Big Don’t Ask

The truth is she IS comitting a crime. She is an illegal immigrant. I am a LEGAL immigrant, as are my children. Why should I have had to go though many legal hoops to be here legally, and then have someone feel like they have the right to be here just bease they decided to move here illegally some years ago. It's BS!

Re: “520 Cannabis Medical Marijuana

It's 420, not 520.

And good move by Colo. Dept. of Public Safety, use the tax $$$ from legal marijuana sales to do good.

Re: “The Big Don’t Ask

"One of Ana's high school teachers, Jennifer Contreras, was there for support. The Mexican-America Studies turned American government educator says, ideally, there shouldn't be any police officers at the schools. That alone is "already threatening.""

Is there anyway to fire Mrs. Contreras for having the ignorant view that having a police officer in a school is "already threatening"? This is a growing problem with some adults teaching children to fear police. We had SROs in schools for years without any major problem and it help give a better sense of security for the thousands of children that go to school. I really do not give a crap about illegal alien's problems when we need police officers in our schools.

These kids will not need to worry about it if they stay out of trouble and do not commit any crimes on school property. I am not willing the trade the great idea of having police officers in our schools because of ignorant fears of some students or teachers that should not be teaching.

Re: “Exit Interview

Mr. Barber I ultimately did not vote for you because you were a primary sponsor for cutting pay of 20,000 Border Patrol Agents. The lies you said about this pay reform and it was going to help us better "secure" the border was made me realize you had to go. I sent several emails and called your office to voice my concerns and all I got back was canned responses. One response was not even about this pay reform bill and was talking about your stance on the "Ebola Crisis". This showed you did not take the concerns of the thousands of agents that work harder than you were going to take a pay cut and be forced to work more hours. You failed me just as much as union and CBP leaders did.

Now Col. McSally has two years to show me and the rest of Southern Arizona she will not be corrupted by Washington DC like you did. If she does not do a good job, we can vote her out in two years. The House of Representatives has two year terms for this very reason. So, they can be the pulse of the people. Were they can be easily switched after only a couple of years. Just like I did with you.

I wish you and your wife well. If I do ever get a chance to meet you in person, I will thank you with all your work you did for veterans, but I will tell you my disgust I have for your pay reform that is forcing me to be away from my family while cutting my pay. I was one of those 167 votes you could have used to win. I bet I am not the only one that swayed away from my normally progressive views because of your horrible stance on Border Enforcement.

Re: “After 3 Months in Sanctuary, Father of 5 Won't Be Deported, Will Join Family for Christmas

Simple fact of life all societies, cultures, countries have the sub-human curse of racists, bigots, sadists, war criminals etc. the list of social misfits is long and way to long to list, but the good thing is they are truly their own worst enemies, and in the end Jesus will not know them and any earthly evil they can wish on anyone will pale in comparison to the eternity on the banks of that lake of fire and how they finally attained in death what they wanted more than anything in life to be amongst their own kind only!

Re: “Danehy

he could afford it, but he didn't want his profit margin to go from 20% to 17%. cutting back hours is the wal-mart solution to not having full time employees and the reason so many of them need assistance. the ACA is convenient to blame for profit-motive capitalists but really it's their greediness that's to blame. and the GOP and Democrats support profit motive every time.

Confusion between SRO and law enforcement? Only for illegals. Isn't that one of our goals?

Maybe they should have separate blood banks or even test the blood before using it.

Funny we are suppose to be a Nation of laws but the criminals get to pick and choose which ones they want and the rest of us can't. Big slap in the faces of the other people that tried to come here the legal way and got trampled on by the illegals thanks to the prick of a president.

Re: “Danehy

If taking care of employees would force an employer to cut hours, he/she has no right to be a business owner. Bah, humbug...
