Re: “Where's the Best Ice Cream in Tucson?

Regarding gelato, I absolutely love Gelato Classico, but you can't buy it in Tucson anymore. It used to be available at Safeway, but they no longer carry it. I've had to order it from Amazon several times over the last five years or so, costing me about $45 for a six-pack of pints, half Vanilla Bean and half Dark Chocolate, and I DO mean DARK chocolate. Every time I order it, I always leave a comment about how ridiculous it is that their products can't be found in the desert. It just seems ludicrous. The thing is, I'm getting ready to order another six-pack, and YES, it's that good. I've tried Frost, Talenti and some others. In my humble opinion, they can't even come close to Gelato Classico. I wish I could somehow rattle these folks' cage enough to get them to find some other outlets in Tucson.

Re: “No Surrender

Arizona needs a simple proposal on the ballot to force our Land Grant University System. To study the effect and medical capabilities of Marijuana and the commercial development of Hemp. Arizona does not need a Marijuana Control board that wants to control both. Still if passed it would not establish study at the Universities for market just a power grab.

Re: “The Fight to Save Oak Flat Comes to Tucson

I strongly support the Apache's right to protect land they love.

But it always cracks me up how liberal types dislike the Christian religion but get all moony-eyed over old tribal religions. Be consistent. Religion is religion. The earth was no more created by God in seven days, than by the Creator and his helpers.

Re: “Rothschild Launches Reelection Campaign

There's not much you can offer when idiots keep electing idiots.

Downtown revitalization doesn't fix Tucson. It just brings those $8 per hour jobs that the left hates.

Tucson? Meet yourself.

Re: “Fight for $15 Protest: Is It Really That Painful to Give Workers a Livable Wage?

Work two jobs. Is everybody this stupid and lazy? Where did we go wrong? Government assistance has weakened the gene pool.

Thank God they're not yet really 99%. They just want you to think they are.

Re: “Fight for $15 Protest: Is It Really That Painful to Give Workers a Livable Wage?

Dear Old Pueblo Independent,

You wrote in part, " They do not employees there to work 40 hours or more, they can't make more money unless they take an additional job."

This sentence is an argument why you need to get a decent education and then, maybe then, with some work experience, you might be worth $15/hour.

Re: “420

Why would I patronize if they support policing my home taking my property even in form of fines and money because they won a lottery. ?

Re: “Fight for $15 Protest: Is It Really That Painful to Give Workers a Livable Wage?

If everyone had free Health Insurance, all Americans or legal residents, we would all be better off as a country.

$15 an hour isn't the problem. The fast food companies are not honorable and have absolutely no loyalty to the United States. They do not employees there to work 40 hours or more, they can't make more money unless they take an additional job. Even if they want to work harder (more hours) they can't.

All this because they do not want to chip in and share the responsibility of healthcare in our country.

15 x 24 x 52 = $18 720. That is pre-taxes. Have some empathy for your fellow Americans.

Re: “Where's the Best Ice Cream in Tucson?

An occasional scoop from the Hub for me. For Custard I prefer Culvers, for Gelato - I don't like the expensive prices here in town, so I just pick up some Talenti when it is on sale - it is the best.

Re: “A Novelist is Suing Joss Whedon for 'The Cabin in the Woods'

I haven't read the book but based that description, I think they have as much in common as they do with Scream, Evil Dead, or Friday the 13th. College kids, sex, and murder. My hunch is someone else owns the rights to that.
