Re: “Tucson Stained Glass Brings Color to the Old Pueblo

Timely article. Thanks.

I'll be visiting and likely buying a special piece for a west-facing window.

No one is even in office yet. Soon, it will be time for the media at all levels to quit getting all "wee-wee'd up" about Trump-Twitter rants or casual remarks and fairly and factually report day-by-day policies and legislation and government workings. Team Trump went visiting the West Wing of the White House and asked how many workers there were staying and how many were leaving. They did not know that ALL of them are leaving. Get serious.

Re: “High Hopes for High Times

I know he is not in office yet, but when that nominee for top-cop Attorney General said that "good people do not smoke marijuana" he clearly showed his cards and, like Trump, will never admit he's wrong. Richard Nixon had a "no knock" law with police crashing through doors to catch "bad" people and soon we may have them standing in the living rooms of America again.

Re: “What Are They Smoking?

The movement itself is based on a total lack of self control. The country has a serious problem with it.

Re: “What Are They Smoking?

The reason the legalization of marijuana is gaining any momentum at all in certain circles has less to do with the change in public attitudes than the potential for taxes and monetization by government entities and powerful corporations.

If you need any examples of how terribly wrong this can go look no further than efforts to tax and monetize the Internet and social media. As soon as the powers to be figure out how to make the "Interweb" pay out, you can forget about streaming anything other than infomercials.

As for legalizing marijuana, same thing, once they figure out how to tax it and the corporations are growing it look for "Big Fats" and "Quarter-bags with seeds" with more carcinogens and added ingredients than fast foods.

Sorry, TCST. You can reference the Greeks all you want, but your use of all-caps outs you as a self-important d-bag. Now, saunter back to your jasmine scented recliner and plot your next rejoinder.

Re: “Gen. Michael Flynn, Conspiracy Tweeter and Trump Whisperer, Is a National Security Risk

It has been with some enjoyment that I watched the reactions from the angry, bitter and lost on the far left. It never seems to matter what source is cited, because according the the angry it is not credible. And then name calling begins. I have to believe the Weekly has no rules on comments because nothing is enforced. Personal insults, name calling and bullying seem to be standard fare here. TW please clean up this site from name calling.

If Dems Had The Right Agenda...you hit the nail on the head! Thank you.

And peabo...CNN ran a special tonight on Barack Obama, the most important figure in our lifetime, and how to preserve his legacy. It should have been entitled "Eight Years Squandered."

Now let's fix what's wrong with America.

Re: “Gen. Michael Flynn, Conspiracy Tweeter and Trump Whisperer, Is a National Security Risk

Yep, that's about exactly the sort of response that could be expected.

What you don't seem to understand is that responding in kind to incivility doubles the trouble.

Go read some Epictetus. There you will learn that no matter what the provocation is, the type of response you offer is YOUR choice and reflects on YOUR character. Those who respond in kind are giving up their freedom to the people to whom they are responding.

I didn't ask for anything to be deleted, Try civility some time, so you can unbunch your undies. And you can also thank your president-elect and the losers he's surrounding himself with for making civility a thing of the past. What's civil about Sandy Hook deniers? What's civil about the birther movement? What's civil about an armed yahoo threatening pizza parlor employees because of a right-wing conspiracy theory? You can blow civility out your you-know-what.

Re: “Gen. Michael Flynn, Conspiracy Tweeter and Trump Whisperer, Is a National Security Risk

Flynn as APNSA would be a disaster waiting to happen. Any president, but Trump especially, needs to have an APNSA who is objective and temperate. That Flynn's behavior is reminiscent of Nixon's dirty trickster Donald Segretti is deeply troubling. That his subordinates at DIA found his assertions dubious is a red flag. In the words of Daniel Patrick Moynihan, You are entitled to your opinion. But you are not entitled to your own facts. That is especially true of an APNSA.

Re: “Gen. Michael Flynn, Conspiracy Tweeter and Trump Whisperer, Is a National Security Risk

They do have relevance: the relevance is to the overall themes in Safier's commentary since the election, which includes this piece, and to many of the comments in the stream, including your own, "Peabo."

If TW deletes the comments you object to based on a lack of relevance, they'd have to delete most of your self-congratulatory incivilities in this stream as well.

(FYI, I think you'd find that there are a lot of people on your side of the political fence who despise the tone you and some of the other commenters take in responding to the conservative "trolls" on these sites.)

Re: “Gen. Michael Flynn, Conspiracy Tweeter and Trump Whisperer, Is a National Security Risk

Wake up and smell the coffee, neoliberal, Wall-Street-accommodating Democrats. You did this to yourselves. The NYTimes reported that exit polls indicated that "Mr. Trump also won over millions of voters who had once flocked to President Obamas promise of hope and change, and who on Tuesday saw in Mr. Trump their best chance to dampen the most painful blows of globalization and trade, to fight special interests, and to be heard and protected. Twelve percent of Mr. Trumps supporters approved of Mr. Obama, according to the exit polls."

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/10/us/politics/donald-trump-voters.html?_r=0

These voters were not RACISTS. They were people damaged by a country that channels the vast majority of its wealth into the pockets of a greedy elite, and they recognized Hillary Clinton as a representative of the interests of that elite. Donald Trump promised them economic security and a change from "business as usual" in DC. Whether he will be able to deliver on his promises to them is something that remains to be seen. It seems to many of us like Sanders would have been a better bet to defend the policy interests of the middle class and working class in this country.

Whatever the case, the self-righteous outrage of a party that used to be a hell of a lot more effective defending the interests of people who work for a living is ludicrous and beneath contempt.

Give it a rest already, why don't you? Apply yourself to putting pressure on Trump to deliver the infrastructure improvements, middle class jobs, and end to DC business-as-usual that he promised. If he doesn't deliver, report on that so the cohort that put him in office can make better use of its votes in the next election.

Re: “Gen. Michael Flynn, Conspiracy Tweeter and Trump Whisperer, Is a National Security Risk

From Jon Stewart:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mUkv_jPgTeg

"There is now this idea that anyone who voted for [Donald Trump] has to be defined by the worst of his rhetoric. There are guys in my neighborhood [who voted for Trump] that I love, that I respect, that I think have incredible qualities who are NOT afraid of Mexicans and NOT afraid of Muslims and NOT afraid of Blacks. They're afraid of their insurance premiums. In the liberal community you hate this idea of creating people as a monolith. 'Don't look at Muslims a monolith. They are individuals and it would be ignorance.' But everybody who voted for Trump is [characterized as] a monolith, [as] a racist. That hypocrisy is also real in our country."

Re: “Gen. Michael Flynn, Conspiracy Tweeter and Trump Whisperer, Is a National Security Risk

The audience of a network says much about the position of a network. Fox or CNN? The second post on CNN election night was from Alec Baldwin. he announced that world markets were crashing. Checked the Dow over the last 4 weeks?

http://www.cnn.com/2016/11/09/entertainment/voting-results-celebrity-reaction/

And then Van Jones called it a "whitelash." Pure gold from a self avowed communist working for a network that his co-workers sued for racism.
