Re: “Book Fare

Open borders and vote buying is killing democracy. Don't blame it on wise fiscal management...which will never happen here.

Re: “Fourth Avenue Deli's Hot Dog Eating Contest Offers $500 for the Victor

Gonzo - Kobayashi has been banned from Coney Island since 2010 since being arrested for crashing the contest during a contract dispute. Joey Chestnut has won for the past 8 years straight, last year eating 61 hot dogs (and buns) in 10 minutes (8 shy of his record 69 set in 2013). Anyway, 69 is the record. You best start training now!

Re: “Tales from the Dark Side

I frankly don't care whether Reagan does it or Clean Elections, but somebody has to rein in the dark money crowd. The reality is that Koch money bought the most recent election - and Ducey et al are following the Koch agenda verbatim.

I feel as if I have been challenged. :)

I'll have to stop by the deli next Tuesday to sign up.

Re: “Congressman Grijalva Sends Another Letter to DHS: Stop Detaining Immigrant Mothers, Children

When I worked for the County I got to see up front and personal the antics of Raul. He had no regard for the Merit System rules. He made no effort to hide his favoriteism for Hispanic employees. When he got elected to Congress I knew we were doomed. And every 4 years he goes back. I just don't get it.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

When I lived in Venezuela my wife and I went to a theater and watched Return of the Living Dead. We got looks from the rather small number of other patrons because we were laughing hysterically at the dubbed dialogue which was horribly translated. Just about the only thing they got right was, "Sesos!"

Good statement. We need to think of families and children. Politics needs to be put aside, so that we can fulfill our nation's' mission and promise.

Re: “Media Watch

I'm a member of Jason Scheer's fine site, WildcatAuthority.com. A couple of years ago Ace sent me an email, unsolicited, that just raged against Scheer and one of the more established members of that site, two people I both like and respect. His email was completely irrational and I told him so, told him I had no idea why he was emailing me but if he thought such communication would entice me to become a paid member of his site, he was delusional, and asked him to never email me again. A month later I heard there was an interesting story up on his site, so I went there to try to read it and my IP had been banned. Hilarious. This guy is a first class nut job.

Re: “Tales from the Dark Side

I understand that an initiatiative may be circulated for the 2016 ballot to expand the statutory powers of the Citizens Clean Elections Commission. I'd be an enthusiastic supporter of such a measure.

Re: “Police Dispatch

Um, if someone can THROW an electric scooter, methinks that he does not NEED an electric scooter. In my opinion.

Re: “Tales from the Dark Side

The "War on Marijuana" has been a complete and utter failure. It is the largest component of the broader yet equally unsuccessful "War on Drugs" that has cost our country over a trillion dollars.

Instead of The United States wasting Billions upon Billions more of our tax dollars fighting a never ending "War on Marijuana", lets generate Billions of dollars, and improve the deficit instead. It's a no brainer.

The Prohibition of Marijuana has also ruined the lives of many of our loved ones. In numbers greater than any other nation, our loved ones are being sent to jail and are being given permanent criminal records which ruin their chances of employment for the rest of their lives, and for what reason?

Marijuana is much safer to consume than alcohol. Yet do we lock people up for choosing to drink?

Even The President of the United States has used marijuana. Has it hurt his chances at succeeding in life? If he had gotten caught by the police during his college years, he may have very well still been in prison today! Beyond that, he would then be fortunate to even be able to find a minimum wage job that would consider hiring him with a permanent criminal record.Let's end this hypocrisy now!

The government should never attempt to legislate morality by creating victim-less marijuana "crimes" because it simply does not work and costs the taxpayers a fortune.

Marijuana Legalization Nationwide is an inevitable reality that's approaching much sooner than prohibitionists think and there is nothing they can do to stop it!

Legalize Nationwide! Support Each and Every Marijuana Legalization Initiative!

Is this for real? What's next, a letter asking fire departments to stop responding to fires?

American rights for American citizens, residents and legal aliens.

Grijalva couldn't be bothered to save 3,000 jobs at the Tucson Post Office Distribution Center. He is incompetent. He is clueless.

Re: “Fourth Avenue Deli's Hot Dog Eating Contest Offers $500 for the Victor

Kobyashi is a professional competitive eater who trains for the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contests along with many others. If 12 dogs doesn't sound impressive to you, I invite you to put your money where your mouth is and sign up for this year's contest. I'll even discount your entry fee to $10 instead of the $20. Let's see how many you can eat...can you cut the mustard?

Oh yeah, the hot dogs used are standard 8-to-a pack, all-beef Boar's Head hot dogs. Hope to see you at the deli!
