No mammey, I don't get the point. Its seems archaic and frivolous. To each their own I suppose.
Please , Grijalva Please.. Compromise is now a term politicans use to convince the public that they are attempting to look like they are doing something...... For those of us that have lived in Tucson for 40 years or more , Natives of Tucson, know that Grijalva should be President of Mexico instead of a U.S. congressman.. Most of his district looks like sonora mex. and functions similar to nogalas sonora mex.. His district has always had the highest crime rate in pima county. Not much has changed for the better since Raul "took" over this district a long time ago.. The number of Illegal immigants from mexico has increased in his district since his take over however... Almost evey time Raul opens his mouth and some sort of word combination comes out,,its got some thing to do with non citizens and in some way bad mouthing the legal U.S. citizen....
I hope the Republican spat results in the killing of the bill destroying Clean Elections. The people of the state established Clean Elections for a reason and the legislature, and I don't care which party is behind it, should be keeping their hands off of it.
I want my candidates being elected, and going into office, beholden to no special interest who may have bankrolled their campaign. Let's continue being a model of public financing of elections for this nation.
ADDITIONALLY -- IF YOU REVIEW the photos on their Facebook page, NEARLY ALL food photograph (listed as shot in-house) were taken/stolen from other pages throughout the internet -- AND CLAIMED AS THEIR FOOD. Again, CLEARLY deceptive, if not Fraudulent.
The blatent disrespect to customers and abhorrent treatment of their staff is disgusting.
To the assignment editor:
It appears that the level of deception, if not outright fraud, and clearly illegal activities perpetrated by the owners of "Amy's Baking Company" is remarkable:
1: Selling store-bought items as "home made" (see "Kitchen Nightmares" -- AND PBS "Check Please" interview where she claims her food to be fresh, house made, locally sourced and organic).
2: Customers report that she claims to have been trained in Culinary Arts in France (again, see PBS "Check Please").
3: It has now been revealed that much, if now all, of their desserts are likewise purchased out of house -- which would suggest that even their company name is fraudulent.
4: While they may pay slightly more in their employee hourly rate than what is legally allowed, AZ Labor Laws CLEARLY state that ALL TIPS are the property of the server WITHOUT restriction of the management or ownership. Their publicly admitted policy of corporate theft (stealing the property of their servers) is clearly illegal.
It would be interesting to see the ownership of this organization publicly called-out (by the press) and questioned regarding these practices. It is my hope that the service staff -- past and present -- will file a class action suit to seek the recovery of illegally take tips. And that the AZ Attorney General's office review these practices for possible criminal action. And should their claims that their Facebook and Twitter accounts were hacked prove to be false, criminal charges should likewise be pursued.
Only my opinion, feel free to call me what you wish. I have several family members who are naturalized citizens and they did it the legal way. That said, my concern is the great degree of naiveté demonstrated by the Gang of Eight. Why do they believe a group of people who have violated there native country's laws and then our laws to illegally emigrate, work without proper documentation, steal or falsify identification, steal goods and services intended for legal, needy citizens will suddenly decide to follow the law? I have a hard time believing even one fourth of those here illegally will voluntarily pay a fine and back taxes much less register with the government, and then learn English and become law abiding citizens. Am I being too cynical? Or just realistic?
Jana, are you serious? You don't understand?
OK, will lay it out plainly, so those with limited civilized natures will understand the point.
Point is EVERYTHING one does, when interacting with strangers, affects the image one
creates of one's culture and themselves in the eyes of those strangers. If you are bent on
creating an image of yourself and your culture as buffoons, then by all means utilize any
stupid slang in your limited vocabulary. If, on the other hand, you wish to project an image
of civility, then use proper language when out in the field.
Jana, I don't get it that you don't get it !!! Sorry, but do want the best for you, just don't know
how to get the point across so you'll understand the point of keeping cuss words to a minimum.
It's like: "the obvious is obscure in your culture"
Actually, the environmental hazards stem from allowing all these illegal aliens into the country in the first place. Do something positive for American and encourage them to self deport.
The network accidentally sent in Gordon Ramsey instead of Dr. Phil to save them lmfao.
Meow meow meeeeow mew meeeeow meeew meow meow meeeeow meoooow meow!
(and I mean it!)
Wait just a minute!!!!! I'm sure no one forced this immature a-hole to drink that much! What about HIS charges for MIC?!?! What about taking responsibility for one's actions?? He is the 'smart guy' who decided to drink that much. I mean, cheers (pun intended) to his friends for at least realizing that their buddy needed medical care, but, really? If you are old enough to be out of mommy and daddy's care and going to college like a big boy, you should be old enough to realize that there are consequences, for crying out loud!
That mistake evidently cost the newscast producer his job... not the editor who cut the sound bite.
Oh damn, I haven't raised my kids right. I HATE IT when that happens.
This is even more stressful than that whole Pinterest thing and I don't even know what the fuck that is.
What's your point?
Another proud graduate of the Dawn Avalon School of Business Management and Damage Control...
Good thing he's male. If he had been female there would have been a rape and some good old fashioned victim-blaming for getting too drunk. Instead, he gets taken to a hospital. He should consider himself lucky.
Ummmm... how did they post the post about being hacked? Did the hacker leave their password the same, and both they and the hacker were logging in for a while? "Cause normally the password gets changed, and then the hacking begins.
So if they were hacked, how did they post a comment on a hacked page? OHHH -- wait. Maybe the hacker posted that, in a clever reverse double fake?
Did this woman run a certain AM station here in town into a wall before trying her hand at baking or is she just a creepy relative?
Burnie, you don't get the point? Still? After all this babble, you still don't get it? Don't understand the point? Don't see the implications of the issues here? Don't feel a need to boost your culture up a notch? Don't see this as a cause? Don't have kids you want to raise right? And you still don't get the point? Woah iz me.
I'd like to call them both nuts but that's too simplistic. The woman at least needs professional mental health counseling. Her husband needs to grow some and stand up to her. He'd rather lose customers than face her wrath. Both very dysfunctional.
