Re: “Arizona Transgender Man, ACLU Sue Country's Fifth Largest Health Care System for Discrimination

gender dysphoria is no more an "elective" than hyperthyroidism which bigots commonly attribute to obese people who choose to eat too much .... this patient who works at a hospital will win this lawsuit and other so called insurance companies hiding their bigotry behind profit motives will "choose" to fund scientific treatments instead of conforming to religious profiteering

Re: “What John Oliver Said About Charter Schools

Why not fix the public schools first so the parents have something to fall back on? You have no intention of fixing public schools do you?

The best way to go out and drink under $15? Go to the grocery store. Stay home.

"The public history of Gmail dates back to 2004."

Do you want to recheck your dates?

Re: “Cannabis and cancer

I am a cancer survivor. In 1985, I
was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a rare type of bone cancer. My
treatment It included 18 months of chemotherapy,
six weeks of
radiation and three surgeries – one to remove the tumor, another to
remove the rib where it resided, and then finally a very invasive lung
biopsy. I was constantly sick, sometimes so much so that I needed to be
in isolation. My immune system was so weakened by the treatment that I
was at high risk of developing other diseases. I lost all of my hair and
a significant amount of weight. After two years of treatment, I was
told to come back in three months for my first check-up.
I read
something about cannabis oil the cure for cancer on the internet and i
decided to give it a trial, i order the medication via email from
ricksimpsoncancerfoundation@gmail.com,
and the medication was delivered to me, i started treatment as
instructed and i can tell you that am still here tell everyone about my
story.

Re: “Is Prop 205 Right for Arizona?

Prop 205 was created and funded by MPP (East Coast lobbyists) bent on decriminalizing marijuana. They say we Arizonans should treat marijuana like alcohol but that's not what Prop 205 does.

The Department of Liquor Licenses and Control administers liquor licenses but Prop 205 sets-up the Department of Marijuana Licensing and Control, a whole new bureaucracy, to administer marijuana licenses. Its worth noting that the Arizona Department of Health Services administers medical marijuana licensing (also thanks to MPP) but that was dismissed because medical professionals discourage marijuana use.

Arizona liquor licensees need to be a US citizen (or legal permanent resident) and a resident of Arizona. Arizona marijuana licensees don’t need to be a US citizen (or legal permanent resident) or a resident of Arizona. In theory, El Chapo could get an Arizona marijuana license.

First, I don’t like outsiders telling us Arizonans what we should and shouldn’t do. Next, I really don’t like outsiders drafting AZ legislation … that’s our Legislature’s job. Finally, and most of all, I think this is BAD LAW and we already have our share.

Re: “Is Prop 205 Right for Arizona?

Too many old grumpy retired people in Arizona who are against pot and they all vote. They would rather have their expensive pharmaceuticals, most of them far more dangerous than marijuana. It doesn't help that the Chamber of Commerce, backed by big Pharma, is going all out to defeat this proposition.

Re: “Danehy

I said I fell like Tom Hanks, because he was dropped and they hired Bill Murray to play the part of Phil Connors.

There were 36 distinct days shown in the movie.

Bill Murray mentioned he'd been "stabbed, shot, poisoned, frozen, hung, electrocuted, and burned," though only electrocution was shown in the movie; adding the 6 other methods of death provides a minimum of 42 days.

He mentions it takes about six months to become an expert at throwing cards, so add another 182 days (according to Google calculator that's about how long 6 months is) to give us 224 days. He also obviously spent time learning the exact timing needed to rob the armored truck, but since he spent only 4-5 hours a day working on card throwing, it's conceivable he could have overlap and do those both during the same days.-Ja Kitos Professional Zombie Hunter

Should have listened to yourself.

Re: “Danehy

I told myself that I would stay out of this, but I have to point out that it was Bill Murray in "Groundhog Day," not Tom Hanks.

Re: “A Broke Student’s Guide

I'm a bartender on Fourth Avenue, and I can assure you none of us worth our salt is going to serve someone five drinks within fifteen minutes. It's irresponsible to encourage students to binge drink as quickly and cheaply as possible.

Also, if you're too broke to tip, you're too broke to go out.

The difference between Hillary Clinton and Ryan Lochte? Ryan admitted that he lied and he didn't make millions for lying.

Re: “The Skinny

Kirkpatrick is linked to Pelosi/Reid AND Obama too! The worst administration in History. See how O care works in Pinal County or the non-networks of second rate medicine in Pima. Plus never seeing a higher tax and more Govt waste she didn't like disqualifies K from office. Plus name one thing she did for her Dicstrict as Nongresswoman. Unlike McSally and McCain that have dons a lot including saving the A 10 and D-M AFB.

The Liary Clinton Political Machine should be indicted and convicted for may crimes as they amount to Organized Criminals. So K supports treasonous acts and criminal corruption of our Govt.

Re: “Danehy

That is not true votesmary. They reduced a half billion dollar budget. They were playing for generals and served very few. It is an excellent cost saving matter that had Democratic support.

Re: “Five tips for staying out of trouble in the dorms

Sgsmith, very well said.

I was in a dorm situation when I was in my late teens. Granted it was military and more strict, but there was your fair share of underage drinking etc. (which I think should be on the table for those potentially risking their lives for their government, but that's another story...). Marijuana? Never...but it was a different time and place. Regardless, I had a lot of fun but respected myself and my place and never risked damaging it nor getting in trouble.


If I'd had the opportunity to attend a school like the UofA, I would not have treated it as carelessly as so many college students today do. Be mindful of your situation and good fortune and have some self-respect.
