Re: “What Are They Smoking?

Wow Concerned Mom, I figure that your kids are stressing you out. Disappear for a few minutes in the comfort of your bedroom and light one up. Hopefully your attitude will improve.

Re: “Danehy

Of course Trump doesn't care about the workers. The same workers who felt abandoned by the Clinton Gang who as I recall left the White House as virtual paupers and today now are worth hundreds of millions. And Hillary's "band of Wall Street wizards and Corporate CEOs?" That's the point. The Trump supporters were grasping at straws, they understood the Dems had written them off as bought and sold long ago.

You mistake my disgust with the Clintons as support for Trump. Not hardly.

Re: “What Are They Smoking?

It is interesting how the loosening of requirements intended to fast-track treatments for AIDS allowed hundreds, if not thousands, of pharmaceutical company-created drugs to flood the market making billions, yet medical marijuana is still struggling for a place.

It only goes to prove my earlier point -- if they can't make a very lot of money from it, the use of marijuana for medical and recreational purposes will continue to be an uphill battle.

It also doesn't help that prosecuting marijuana "offenses" and incarcerating the offenders remains a serious revenue stream for the private prison systems in the United States, a trend that is not likely to change in the next four years.

Re: “Danehy

Salaries haven't increased in 15 years? Trump's has. And his band of Wall Street wizards and Corporate CEOs, in his cabinet, I am sure they were all rewarded by keeping their companies costs low, by moving jobs to China and making sure those in the US kept their wages low. So my premise will remain. Trump caring about Youngstown Steel is zero.

Re: “Danehy

Reality Star

One person's gullibility is another's desperation. For those without work, or working multiple jobs to barely make ends meet or barely making ends meet on a salary that hasn't increased in fifteen years Trump's message might be seen as at least acknowledging their pain. Demeaning them is, as we've seen, a fool's choice - Hillary's Deplorables made the only case available to them .

Desperate times often call for desperate measures - Trump's victory should be understood as a Hail Mary pass by a large segment of the working population with nothing left to lose.

Re: “Danehy

And lots of gullible voters bought the horse hockey shoveled by Trump. To those people in Youngstown or Saginaw or Ironwood or Storm Lake, if you believe a draft dodging New York real estate speculator, "reality show" host gives two $hits about your job or your Medicare, or closed factory, you are living in La La Land.

Re: “Danehy

Danehy gets it right: Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 presidential election in the Electoral College despite winning the popular vote decisively. Glad to hear Danehy, apparently now a recovering Democrat, concede defeat without pointing fingers, making excuses and hoping for, mirabile dictu, a magic reversal in the EC.

The reasons for the Clinton loss are less mysterious than her apologists admit: the voters weren't buying very old wine in a shapeshifting new plastic bottle. The tone deaf DNC refused to accept the fact that voter "distrust" of Clinton was actually a tepid description of the real issue, many voters actually despised her - and not because of "30 years of attacks" by the far right. The Democrats became lost in the weeds an assuming they could hold on to the coalition of 2008 and 2012 Obama supporters while continuing to neglect the workers - remember them? - who once formed the backbone of the party.

Anyone not blinded by party-sanship should have recognized the incredible, boisterous enthusiasm expressed in the Sanders and Trump rallies meant something really important; that professional politicians are as esteemed as Tom's chicken rapists. In the end, the shocking spectacle was the Democratic Party imploding while the Republicans formed a national conga line and danced in the streets. Maybe the new Democratic leader, 76 year old millionaire Nancy Pelosi will come to the rescue. And maybe pigs will be spotted flying over the dome of the county courthouse.

Re: “What Are They Smoking?

As indicated in the article, the "movement" also has much to do with decades of past injustices and millions of prosecutions with confiscation of property and ruining of lives without conscience. It used to be much worse than it is now, but mean spirited intolerance, Concerned Mom, is still a bigger problem in this country than people who prefer marijuana.

Re: “The Skinny

And the COT is funding it with 27% of pay additional per year to the fund because of losses dating back to 2013. Find another employer that would contribute that much to a retirement account.

Only for public "servants."

Re: “Phoenix Union High School District Makes a Statement

That is not at all what they said. Safier posted that they would stand behind them regardless of a change in law. So they are teaching them to ignore laws tgat they dont agree with.

You can't pick and choose the laws you like, even if you watched Bill and Hillary do it for most of their lives. Letting them, has emboldened many of you to support lawlessness.

Stop it.

Re: “Phoenix Union High School District Makes a Statement

All this disagreement seems pretty intense to me.

Is it possible that we are ABLE TO DISAGREE because we have assumed some rights to do so in our country?

Does that mean they can NOT BE abridged, or taken away? But THAT is off the subject. The subject seems to be that someone has had the gumption to stand up and say that each and every human life is IMPORTANT and deserving of preservation and encouragement to achieve as fully as possible !

That is such a contrary view that it makes some feel threatened and afraid !

I wonder WHY?

Debbie L. Police and Fire are covered by the Public Safety Personnel Retirement System. Its a state wide plan and is run by the State-not the City. So, no, that is not exactly what Tucson is doing.
