Re: “Just When You Thought Crazyland Was Less Crazy: SB 1062 Part II?

What's really crazy is that Arizona *already* has a statute that's identical to the federal RFRA which allowed Hobby Lobby to skip paying for women's birth control under its health plan. So, there's no need to amend any existing laws or pass any new ones for someone in Arizona to say they don't have to recognize same-sex marriages because it violates their religious beliefs. In the end, I think they'll lose those claims, just as claims for religious exemptions from the 1964 Civil Rights Act's ban on race discrimination failed. But there's a lot of time and a lot of litigation and uncertainty between here & there.

Re: “Proof of Evolution

Do not vote for bigots! All men (and women) are created equal. laws that discriminate should never be tolerated. Equal pay for women!!! Arizona...wake up! These backward policies and those who honor them will harm all of us specifically financially...look at 1070 and it's cost to the states economy! Move on to the future of acceptance of ALL. It has been 40 years since a Hispanic has been elected to a state wide office!
Vote for David Garcia...School Superintentent! Vote for Fred Du Val to counter the extreme right wing agenda and all of Arizonans may have a chance to be equal and we could prosper too!
That will only

Re: “Foothills Fracas

Downing, Victoria has to be joking or I miss read your post. You said only vote for one. When we have TWO to elect. Flush your other vote!

Victoria Steele thinks she is the one you recommended. If you did I certainly agree with you. Representative Victoria Steele has earned reelection.

I think all reason points to a Steele-Friese victory. Both State Representative Victoria Steele and Dr. Randy Friese are more in tune with the district and certainly not tied down by the right-wing extremists who have been running the Legislature that Ethan Orr joins.

Let's be honest, those guys that Orr is attached to are not the least bit interested in Tucson, Southern Arizona, the U of A or making connections with our best trading partner leading to more employment and better jobs for us in Southern Arizona.

Screaming the border, the border, yelling ebola, ebola, does not bring much needed resources and jobs to our area, let alone serve the best interests of the state.

Re: “Danehy

Udall in CO takes a beating from Michelle Obama. She introduces him as a 5th generation CO. He was born in Tucson.

Re: “Hey, We're Hiring a Staff Writer!

I'm no good with deadlines...or media type bosses.

Plus you don't seem like a very friendly bunch to people you disagree with.

Maybe a feature called "the Rat Hole" or "the Rat's Nest"?

Re: “Danehy

"He increased taxes and cut military funding" -- just like Ronald Reagan.

Any president should respond to facts as they find them. If the criteria for president was increasing military and decreasing taxes, we'd have infinite military spending and no taxes (and obviously be bankrupt). Fricking doctrinaire Republicans. At least Democrats occasionally think practically. Republicans used to be smart.

Re: “This is What Equality Looks Like

Hold up, Bert- if they're perverts as you say, how does getting gay-married make them more perverted? What- do you get a free ball gag with your marriage license or something?

Re: “Hey, We're Hiring a Staff Writer!

Rat T: Why don't you apply? Based on how often you comment, either you're unemployed or work somewhere where you have nothing to do, so you must be available for a new opportunity.

Rat T. Don't start giving them facts. It'll confuse the Hell out of them. Let Tom enjoy his trip through Fantasyland. It keeps him content.

Re: “This is What Equality Looks Like

Tucson has finally sunk to the very lower depths of depravity!
It's not "gay" it "pervert"!
Perverts can now be totally perverted!
Dare to read the meaning of "pervert" as this is politically correct!
Love the sinner but hate the sin!
Talk about being open, test this perverts!
