Re: “Letter With 160 Signers Opposes NAACP's Proposed Moratorium on Charter Schools

How much longer are we as a nation going to allow, and even support, this idea that turning over public institutions to private business interests is good for the country. We have privatized schools, privatized hospitals, privatized prisons, privatized probation services with no end in sight and the only thing we have learned is they do not save money, they turn vulnerable people into revenue streams and they further the growing idea that nothing works in America anymore, which in turn has fueled the idea that somehow a businessman is going to save America.

Re: “Donor Trouble

Keep the laws as they are. Legalize MJ and you take away a very lucrative side business that I, and many Arizonans enjoy!
I move about 1 pound a week to friends and co-workers. No unknown buyers. Very safe.
I only deal in high quality home grown and hydro, no mexican dirt weed!
I take in about $600 profit of unreported income per week!
Why would anyone buy mexican dirt weed when they can get high quality herb for a few dollars more?

Re: “Pride 2016

Great article but a few mistakes need to be corrected: EON not ION youth program. Also, proofreading must be a lost art...at least get the names correct.

Re: “The Skinny

I used to admire Senator McCain, both for his service and for his willingness to stand apart from party for the good of the nation. That McCain died during his presidential campaign. Now, he's a sad, pathetic shadow of himself and we need to retire him to Sun City.

Re: “Letter to the Editor

Negative arguments regarding desalinization are abundant. Costly, energy inefficient, high carbon foot print contributing to greenhouse gas effect, negative environmental impact resulting from excessive brine. Conservation is easier, cheaper and can be accomplished at corporate, institutional, and individual levels.

A typo? Perhaps "sold"?

Someone is no longer a maverick - if he ever was. He's become a blithering embarrassment.

What the hell does that mean? It's a poster. It's an image. If he saw a picture of it, he saw it.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

Querido Gustavo,

I take exception, in part, to your response to Mandilón in Manhattan. This part, "But, like El Norte, Mexican culture keeps coarsening, making pinche more acceptable than ever." This is an answer from a Mexican Mexican.

Mandilón, excuse me, "pussy-whipped pocho" asks if pinche is a "bad" word among Mexican-americans. You reply that "#fucktrump" is acceptable from 5 yr olds and up. Then you add that you would never in front of "Mámi". Good boy! Then comes the "But"...

Mexican Americans, estado-unidenses, are, for the most part, pochos. But we fear the "chancla" like everybody else. So, it seems to me, that slang use is a matter of respect. PW pussy wants to know if we use it liberally or not.

Allow me to make comparison between language use and seasoning food. Some people cannot stomach spicy food. So, don't serve them spicy food, unless you don't like them. But we, Mexican-americans like it hot and spicy. And we anticipate the continued popularity of all things mexican. "Taco trucks on every corner..." Then why hold back on the "spicy"language? Americans want more hot and spicy. Let them season to taste.

Mexicans in the "states" are a mixture of cultures. But are "we" coarsening the the culture? En serío? Seriously! The newer arrivals find everything wrong with everybody, pinche gueros, pinche pochos, and yes, pinche putos.

!No seas gúey! Give your readers the entire menu of spanish expression.

I enjoy your advice column. I work in customer service and get similar questions from my customers and non-Spanish speaking friends.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

Great story, thanks. It's a tough issue with no real solutions. Unfortunately we humans are problematic and there will always be some who can't seem to fit in anywhere. My kids always give them their money.

Re: “Donor Trouble

Prop 205 passes will be be #1 in incarceration we can make the top of the list in failed schools beating out all other states we will be 50th.
Yea Arizona needs to lead the pack in a new way to market marijuana the reason it will get better more enforceable less people in the market and a administrative court we own under civil laws no constitutional right's considered.

Only a moron educated in Arizona could vote for this.

Re: “Donor Trouble

bslap, sorry I dont see this as a step it>>> will be in direct conflict with any federal agencies that might come into to play with federal agencies if the federal classification changes.

This department will try to arbitrate with the FDA, FTC, ICC, IRS, Banking, USDOJ. In short This department will be set up to isolate it from federal oversight and take steps to continue autonomy in this rough governing department.

It will work against the consumer the patient and the social fabric as a whole. This department will only protect the marketeers consumers as always fuck you!!! Listen we will market pot you can buy from us or go to prison either way it counts as a plus in our columns for reason to exist. Oh yea we are protection the children how long can this lie go on.

Re: “Final Sweat

"This is not a normal Sunday for this group friends, since the property's been old—today is their last sweat on Sunday, Sept. 4."

So how old is the property?

The date of this piece is September 22. Are these guys time travelers?

Re: “Donor Trouble

Hm, but is it a step in the right direction? Once pot use becomes normalized, even in a poor way, then the feds will follow eventually and later propositions can open it up further.

Re: “Donor Trouble

Does anyone really understand that it would be very for a consortium of county Attorneys to just take over the oversight of this board easy as pie.

Az has 15 counties all it would take is to have all counties give proxy to a special task force of a few deputy county atty's on Marijuana.

Most counties rely on State monies for all civil functions. All the legislature has to do is hold back highway & medical allocations to those counties that dont capitulate on the marijuana task force.

After all thee no monies going back to small rural counties like Greenlee with a pop of 8500 why not let the big counties fight and reap the profits it's their problem they are the marketeers.

So we have Pima, Yavapai, Maricopa, Yuma, Santa Cruz, Cochise, already against legalization who will be the 7 & 8th county to join.

Prop 205 does nothing for Arizona but make availability easier and market participation limited.

VOTE NO PROP 205 >> VOTE NO PROP 205>>> VOTE NO PROP 205
