Another bad, very bad idea. Our politicians take on enough stupid stuff as it is. The only hearing one this should get is a hearty "good by" and the only pipeline it should move through is the sewer line.
A Philly soft pretzel here in the Old Pueblo? Bring it!
Pancho Villa is an icon of the Mexican Revolution. Yes, he definitely was a man of his times and a man of contradictions. While I do not condone the killing of innocent people of Columbus, NM, I strongly support our statue and Pancho's struggle for the poor of Mexico, and for Mexico's national sovereignty. One must also look at the role of President Wilson (who provided and withheld arms) during the Mexican Revolution and how it resulted in the deaths of many Mexicans. Any comprehensive study of all that Doroteo Arango did and fought for would logically result in support of and for, our statue. George Washington was a slave-owner general. Thomas Jefferson also owned slaves. If anyone thinks slavery was "cool," please watch the film "12 years as a Slave." Should we go to Washington D.C. and tear down monuments to George and Thomas?
Are the teachers "teaching the content wrong" or are they "teaching the wrong content?"
I remember the poster of Spiro Agnew picking his nose with the caption "Keep Nixon Alive."
"Put down the dope do something constructive with your life"
Well 65 raised 4 kids all graduated college and moved to better employment climate. Paid all my taxes and mortgage lived in the same neighborhood for 38 years. Stricken with nerve problems and now an advocate for Medical Marijuana it availability it's quality, safety, education, understanding and study. How's that for something constructive since some are the one's with the scale to measure by...
I have been around so long it makes me very nervous to see this much time and money being spent on someone industry that just want to help.
Thanks Ryan. It's not showing up in Activity. Any other suggestions? I'm on an iPhone.
It's a shame they spent the first two minutes talking to Tombstone cowboys with fake Texas accents. And then they talked to some real "Arizonians." Props for using Calexico as background music, though.
Back in the 60's there was a poster of Nixon with the caption "would you buy a used car from this man ?" You could say the same about that picture of Elias.
Hi David, once you're in the app, click on the button on the bottom that says 'Activity' and you'll see the contest in there!
District Tavern? Darn, it was fun, took some good pictures inside, but let's make sure here. Wasn't the ancestor 7 BLACK CATS? Music was also good but something went wrong-perhaps anger? anyway this is what it looked like after it closed.
Operative words (yet again), " It's the three Democrats—Bronson, Valadez, and Richard Elias—who generally feel his wrath."
Heck, Democrats are supposed to stand *for* the People, against the usual detached, self-serving careerists who enact policies that favor a rarified, elitist minority at the expense of everyone else.
Obviously, Hernandez has zero expectations of the two he does not bother with. He and they know where they stand. The other three need to be reminded they have crossed the line, at least from Hernandez's weltanschauung. That said, I suspect that were the latter to vote consistently as Hernandez desires them to, they would not get re-elected.
They owe their votes to a broader constituency, not the local gadfly. But he serves his function, too. We all need the occasional Jiminy Cricket...
• HB 2071 would allow candidates for public office to request that their home addresses would not be considered a public record.
If politicians are exempt, all citizens should be exempt as well. We were supposed to all be the same, under the law.
That is neat ! Thanks.
Tucson should organize a cash mob for Mexico In season!
Funny, McSally reminds me of another politician that made promises to get elected, got elected, then carried them out. Ticked a lot of people off. Turns out the other pol was a hero. Reagan.
She is absolutely right. When I was in grade school we learned of Jonas Salk and Booker T and the MGs from the same instructor. It helped cohese the thinking that all Americans make some sort of contribution to what the call the melting pot in America.
But all that was long before these hyphenated Americans and split loyalties.
" It's the three Democrats—Bronson, Valadez, and Richard Elias—who generally feel his wrath."
Well---and I say this as an old guy, who still drives in the fast lane and doesn't have a lawn---at least he has his priorities straight.
I have been there twice when I'm in the area. The food is outstanding and fresh too. I had a fresh cucumber lemonade that was to die for. The first comment is correct, there location is poor. If they were more central, close to the U of A, in the Northwest, along the Campbell corridor or even in the East they would be so busy it would be hard for them to keep up. They are that good. Chopstix is busy because the Hispanic market absolutely devours Chinese food.
As a business owner in Tucson for 20 yrs, who supports local I wish them the best. If they have to go to a food truck they will do very well.
Every time I hear a republican politician uses the old who Obama care took 716 billion dollars away from Meidcare" talking point can write them off "just another Tea Party - Koch Brothers funded". fraud That is the biggest lie that was ever told. The ACA took money away from Medicare Advantage which is giant Insurance company cash cow that puts hundreds of billions of dollars into the insurance companies pockets and lets them deny any care they want. Kind of like the govenment student loan program is a giant rip off, where the banks and government overly profit on the backs of students and young families just starting out in life. Any one turing 65 who signs up for a Medicare Advantage Plan (which is being phased out by the ACA) is a uninformed fool. It may sound good deal because it comes at little or no cost, but you lose the option to enroll in a Medigap plan after one year without being rated (which means you stuck in a plan where you are at the mercy of insurance companies for the rest of your life.
