She is right. It's socialist day. Get out there and do very little.

Re: “Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby Shows Respect for City's Youth

I'm with you 100% David. As long as Ms Mosby files charges against the Mayor for Accomplice to Attempted Murders of Police Officers for her order to stand down, and Attempted Murder of Police Officers for every brick thrower.

Laws are for ALL. Start filing.

Re: “Baltimore State’s Attorney Marilyn J. Mosby Shows Respect for City's Youth

Good for her. The right will try to defame and dehumanize her, predictably. But the real story is that a young man was murdered, brutally, at the hands of those assigned to serve and protect. Of course there are good cops, but the bad ones need to go, and they need to go now.

Re: “The Desert Goddess of Glen Canyon

Freebird, you're not helping your cause by spewing half-baked insults. It doesn't make you look good.

I see valid points in the posts from Lupe and Bisbee, although "They will, I hope, be sharing eco-stories in infernal Hell" can hardly be called a "considered" belief.

Re: “Media Watch

Thanks for writing about AZPM. I feel its a worthwhile media outlet, both radio and TeeVee. How do I follow the Citizens Advisory Board?

Bisbee boy you out the sorry excuse for a living organism I've encountered on the web in a long time. You'll be burning in Hell with the Koch brothers, scumbag.

Re: “The Desert Goddess of Glen Canyon

Lupe Rodarte,

You seem like a concerned person, and, in part, I agree with your points. However, let me suggest that you be concerned about those about those who have nothing and not those of us, including myself, who have what you believe to be too much. I do this in my own simple way.

For more than 30 years I have helped lift people from deep poverty by being a part of a team to build dams for irrigation and electrical generation. The deference in their lives is astounding. I also help develop gas and oil fields for struggling countries, assuring those nearby benefit as well. Importantly, I have been involved in the responsible development of more than a dozen copper mines around the world. Seeing the differences these projects make in lives of thousands is rewarding beyond belief, as I always return to see how things have turned out.

To be sure some benefit more than others. Those with drive, intelligence and education always come out with more, just as we see in the US. Nonetheless, many, many more have their lives improved in so many ways.

Now worry less about the over-consumption in the US and help those who have not.

Re: “Critics Call McCain's Oak Flat Tactics a New Low

The "maverick" comment reminds me (as if I could ever forget), that "maverick" McCain, chose "maverick"
Sarah Palin as his vice presidential candidate. That single move will eternally compromise his legacy and credibility as a genuine leader. While I respect what he endured during his stint in the armed services I have no respect for a pathetic politician who sits on the laps of bloated, corrupt corporations whoring their money for his misguided political power.
We must do better. Get out and vote, make a statement in every election.

Re: “Media Watch

Perhaps many have left KIIM FM because we are tired of the"bubblegum country" they play on endless loops. There is so much better music out there. It is Sirius Radio or Internet stations for me. And no....calling it country while rapping is NOT country.

Re: “One Day in Bisbee

And the other micro-brewery, which fewer visitors get to see because of its location, is Beast Brewing, on Highway 92 west of Naco Highway. It's the first of its kind in Arizona, being formerly owned by Electric Dave. Jim and Amanda Gibson brew some mighty fine beer, its well worth the trip to the west side. Fact is, there's a lot to see, do, eat and drink here in the majestic but mellow Mule Mountains.

Re: “Arizona DREAMers Rally at UA: We Deserve In-State Tuition

Why is the Hispanic influx important? The answer is as follows: The Caucasians stopped reproducing. In any society a female must had 2.1 children to keep the society vibrant, alive and continuing. Caucasian society has collapsed with a reproductive rate less than 2.1 children per woman. Without the influx of the Hispanic population America would have withered on the vine. This is a satistical and mathematical truth.

Now as to these Hispanic young people: America need these young people and they should be welcomed. Who is going to pay the bills and taxes? A bunch of old burned out old people in a rest home? I think not.

Any young person who can prove they have been in Arizona since childhood and have never engaged in criminality should pay in state tuition. It’s good for Arizona and good for America.

Re: “Critics Call McCain's Oak Flat Tactics a New Low

Does anyone remember the last time John McCain was referred to as a maverick? He use to march to the beat of his own drum, but now he hears and fears other drums.

Re: “Critics Call McCain's Oak Flat Tactics a New Low

Demo lose support because they never deliver on their promises. Why do you think Clintons theme song was "don't stop thinking about tomorrow?"

Quite simply? Their ideas suck and you are getting absolutely nothing today. Obama? Hope and change? Really? His change is hopeless.

Unless you want a nuclear IRAN.

Re: “Critics Call McCain's Oak Flat Tactics a New Low

Where are the Democrats? I sure hope we find a good candidate but did you know the main reason we lost was so many Dems didn't vote? Why we continue to do that in the mid-terms is beyond me. I got that information from someone who should know.

Re: “Critics Call McCain's Oak Flat Tactics a New Low

It is important to maintain protests from now on through election day to defeat John McCain, just like has been done. Here is a link to a photo essay about a protest in Tucson back in February at Flake's office:…

Re: “The Desert Goddess of Glen Canyon

I see your point about wanting the dam removed and the Colorado River and Glenn Canyon restored back before 1956. But look at the positive things the dam generated like cheap electricity, jobs building the dam and all the employment from Lake Powel. Also the millions of people that got to enjoy the beauty of the southwest by boat, they got to see the side canyons less a few hundred feet. In the last 60years without the dam only a few thousand people would have seen Glen Canyon not the millions that vacation on Lake Powell. Maybe because of the dam being built you and the others hired to document the Archeology sites got to see Glenn Canyon, just a thought.

Re: “Arizona DREAMers Rally at UA: We Deserve In-State Tuition

The "they don't pay taxes" argument no longer holds up, they've been living here, paying rent, paying for goods and services, etc. While I can understand that some people here are against allowing them to pay an equal rate to U.S. citizens and residents, providing them such fairness will prove beneficial for their communities in the long term. How? LOYALTY to the country that allowed to have equal opportunities like everyone else. I'd be very grateful. DREAMERS are already here, and have adapted to the educational system in a very successful way (this guy was an honor student in high school and college, come on!)
