Re: “Danehy

Dear Tom,

You sound like a wanker but I agree completely with your article. I worked overseas for a decade and upon returning to the US I've found it is infested with dog fanatics. It wasn't like this before. There are so many irresponsible dog owners and no one to deal with their nonsense that I spend at least part of my day combing the real estate ads looking for properties out on the hinterland where I can get away from these cretins and all their accumulated nonsense. Good luck trying to steer the herd back to some sort of modicum of reasonableness.

Re: “ICE to Start Releasing Children, Women from Immigration Detention

Why do people downvote facts? It's almost like they don't want real information to interfere with their agenda....

Re: “Feds: Undocumented Youth Who Got a 3-Year DACA Work Permit Have to Return It Immediately, Get a 2-Year Instead

Extremism begets extremism Maria.

At this point you are just preaching to your own choir. How many white friends do you have?

Tell me more about your imaginary Swedish friend who wasn't asked for her "papers" at the border checkpoint.

Are you here to change minds or influence readers or are you here for back-pats in an echo chamber?

Re: “Immigration Rights Advocates Who Shut Down Operation Streamline for a Day Sentenced to 'Time Served'

"immigration rights advocates".

If this were true, wouldn't they actually assist people who want to come here legally by assisting them with completing paperwork and paying for the necessary and legal fees to be here?

Aren't there better ways to help LEGAL immigrants to come here? How about helping them learn English, teaching them about the Constitution and giving them American Flags? Informing them about how to enlist in the American military to gain legal entry?

But don't listen to me, just down-vote me and thank me for my service for one of the 3 wars I was deployed to. Be sure to stop by the waiting room at the Veteran's Administration Hospital and tell me about how we should just open up the borders and provide them licenses and benefits while I wait 2 hours to see my doctor for an appointment that took me 90 to acquire.

Be sure to wear a Mexican flag shirt so that you can tell my Mexican American wife that I am a racist for extra points too.

Re: “Barrio Hollywood: If You Don't Live in the Barrio, You're Not Allowed to Vote in Our Neighborhood Association

I have no idea what this article is about. Is there a Point/Counter-Point article out there?

What is going on in Barrio Hollywood and why should I care? Seriously.

If they are fighting against corporate real estate scum, let me know. The less Tucson looks like what is happening to all of 4th ave (like old Mill Ave in Tempe), the better.

Re: “Ducey Orders Investigation into Planned Parenthood Arizona

Without Planned Parenthood where would my friends and I received free condoms in High School? This helped out so much with shy friends.

There should be a Planned Parenthood in every city. I teenager should be able to receive a free abortion without consent from her parents.

This is where Republicans get retarded, all the freedom from government and big brother, my body and privacy goes out the window when Zombie Jesus steps into the room.

Education and free birth control needs to be paramount at schools and at home. If that happens we won't even need to worry about abortions.

Where are the feminists when there are issues that actually matter? Walking in another Slut parade or blogging about "man-spreading" I guess.

Re: “Zachary's Pizza Is Closing

Super-sad. We haven't been in Tucson in years and are planning a trip. Z's was the first place we looked up, and the tragedy of its closing is brand new to us.

Re: “Josh Marshall: "Trump Is the Frankenstein's Hair Monster"

Feather merchants, During the early days of the US Army, perhaps as early as the Revolutionary War, it was used to describe unscrupulous merchants (perhaps precursors of Haliburton) who would include rocks and other heavy objects to add weight to the feathers sold to the government that were used for soldiers' pillows, mattresses and such, so to increase the contractors profits. The only thing worse is the yes master sycophants that trail behind the bigmouth bus that carries all their fears, justifications and bigotry with a big US flag on one side and a confederate flag on the other side.

Re: “Josh Marshall: "Trump Is the Frankenstein's Hair Monster"

The Tucson Weekly must be getting hard-up for news. Josh Marshall has a lot of balls calling Trump a joke, really? The biggest joke is the asshole in the Whitehouse right now; Obama has fucked America upside down along with the dimwit democrats. If a republican came out and just write a law letting illegals stay here we would never hear the end of it, along with his health care crap that places most everybody from 40 hrs. a week to 20. Josh Marshall is the fucking joke along with all the other bleeding heart librals.

Most use a little barley and alcohol. It normally takes six months, unless you put it on high.

Re: “Ducey Orders Investigation into Planned Parenthood Arizona

Sorry ChetDude but i wondered who was behind the defensive attack on the video.

Planned Parenthood released a lengthy attack on the Center for Medical Progress founder David Daleiden yesterday, and today pro-abortion RH Reality Check published an infographic that purports to show the connections between pro-life groups that had a hand in Daleiden’s videos that are now going viral all over the world.

RH Reality Check is a product of the pro-abortion UN Foundation, founded by Ted Turner and headed for many years by former Democrat Senator Tim Wirth, who was recently an honored guest at the Vatican conference on “climate change.”

Is your next endorsement from the Pope?

Re: “Josh Marshall: "Trump Is the Frankenstein's Hair Monster"

I'm beginning to think that the Republicans are paying him to take the heat. The Left is frothing at the mouth and all the other candidates are getting away with murder.

I miss you Vince Foster. RIP

Re: “Doug Ducey and Andy Biggs: "Don't Tell Me What I Don't Want to Hear."

Sorry but we only need to look to our airports and see what law enforcement run by the government has done to TSA. Why not give it some time and see what the long term results are? It is actually a British idea that has been working just peachy across the pond.

By the way does it insulate taxpayers from lawsuits of prisoners?

Thank you Irma. I got the same impression from the article and it didn't make any sense.

Re: “Josh Marshall: "Trump Is the Frankenstein's Hair Monster"

How is a bigmouth racist with dodgy business ethics going to help take our country back? If you think he'd care about anyone but the 1% you're kidding yourself. We may as well have Comcast the Corporation become president. Remember: they're people too.

Re: “Barrio Hollywood: If You Don't Live in the Barrio, You're Not Allowed to Vote in Our Neighborhood Association

The title suggests that businesses are not welcome at neighborhood meetings or that they are not invited and encouraged to contribute ideas and suggestions. The residents wish to continue working with and for businesses and welcome them to the meetings. There was a lot of speculation as to how exactly Carelton managed to get elected by the neighborhood which planted the seed of mistrust for many. Unfortunately, many businesses who have nothing to do with the underlying motives for the seeming division feel personally attacked and unwanted.

I'm very interested to see who will cover this issue (and its many layers) thoroughly and without bias.
