Face it, folks. Get ready for this town to eventually empty out -- down to a sustainable population before long...
This WILL happen because, thanks in no small part to Catastrophic Anthropomorphic Global Climate Destabilization, the WATER IS RUNNING OUT and there will be more, hotter days per year...
To widen Grand Road at this time, when traffic counts are GOING DOWN and the regressive sales tax money is NOT there is pandering to a mythical "future" pushed by the growth lobby...
This town will not get to ONE MILLION population let alone the 2 million that PAG, the growth lobby and CofC and other fantasists think it will...
STOP the madness now! Begin with Broadway and Grant Road. Repair and improve but DON'T WIDEN THEM!
Even though there may be a few crumbs in the ACA that will help some folks, the fact that Brewer, the Chambers and the corporate Sick-Care-Industrial-Complex are pushing for the expansion should give pause to many of you Obama-defenders.
The ACA was WRITTEN by the USAmerican Sick Care Industry and was designed around these major principles:
1) Continue tinkering with the corporate for-profit sick care model in the face of the fact that EVERY OTHER advanced industrialized country has abandoned that failed experiment.
2) Shovel more hundreds of billions into the coffers of the Sick-Care-Industrial-Complex -- a large portion of which will be used for more lobbyists and to buy more politicians...by forcing people to purchase a defective corporate product...
3) Push off a real solution (Improved and Enhanced Medicare For All) for at least another decade ("wait 'till' it's all in place and then we'll see", say the Obama-bots) meanwhile leaving tens of millions of USAmericans out in the cold...
Awfully christian of him, isn't it?
Doesn't Frank have some varmints to hunt or something?
Antenori -- the gift that keeps on giving...
For lovers of self-parody...
There is no rational defense for what this idiot is trying to get passed into law.
The only thing wrong with Grant Road is the perpetual plan to widen it . . . someday. That makes real estate along or near it worthless until . . . someday. Want to see a business corridor prosper? Eliminate the unneeded widening and make it reasonable to develop properties and invest in new businesses. Voila, Grant Road, destination, instead of a way to get across town in a hurry . . . someday.
Credit where it's due - thanks Gov. Brewer. Wow that feels weird.
Apparently Mr. Franks and altogether too many like him would prefer an America in which everyone keeps and bears arms and nobody gets to make her own decisions regarding pregnancy and child bearing.
Thanks for the good reporting combined with reasonable opinions.
Nearly every time Frantic Frank Rantenori opens his mouth he exposes more than his dental work. He makes clear his lack of respect for any and all who may disagree with him, his overweening ambition and his forgetfulness of what has got him to his present position of eminence: his 20 years of living in a socialist society, aka the US Army, followed dy 9 years of employment by a government contractor. C'mon Frank,lighten up.
Others have said it but let me add my voice: I seldom agree with Governor Brewer but she is spot on regarding the expansion of AHCCCS. What I would consider obstinacy if I disagreed is in this case sheer determination that the common good shall be achieved. It's a shame that the budget and the Medicaid bill won't pass unanimously but the shame is on those members of the majority party who care more for their ideology than for the people of Arizona, especially those less economically secure than themselves.
My question is simple: Will he turn off the AC at the schools that have been shuttered? I live across the street from Schumaker Elementary and the AC has been going full tilt for the week now that it's been boarded up.
After 10 yrs there, I sadly had to leave Tucson in '84 due to business. What I have never been able to understand is why you folks keep electing Sen. McCain?
In the next couple of years Arizona will be "Fundamentally Transformed" thanks to McCain & Obama. I've seen news reports that many of my old camping grounds are "Enter At Your Own Risk" now. McCain's failure to protect his own state's southern border says volumes. I wish you all only the best of luck!
If the City had not wasted all the money on the stupid "light Rail"..ah "Modern Street car"... or.."Neighborhood Trolley"... what ever it's called this week, there would be money to actually help people. The LibDumbs running this city don't care about what works, just their pet projects.
Adelita Grijalva wanted this guy and her and her sycophants are the board majority so that's that. Thank goodness my kids aren't in TUSD.
Unfortunately Az Dad, this is Arizona and these throwbacks do represent the throwbacks who make up the majority here.
How else do you explain the fact that the same kind of miscreant keeps getting elected year after year?
Arizona is a beautiful state populated by some really ugly minds.
Sounds like typical Arizona Republican "values" to me.
Sounds like a Republican to me.
