Why don’t all you grumpy people stay at home so those of us that want to have fun are not disturbed by your nastiness?

Re: “Op-ed: What Part of Illegal Don't You Understand?

Regarding so-called "gang" affiliations: Let's not forget that Sycamore Canyon Academy, where the no-show bus was supposedly headed, is in fact a boys reform school that already houses dozens of young men with criminal and gang histories. It's a good program, and from what I understand it really does help those kids. But please. If people are going to be up in arms about "gang members" occupying those premises, then they need to take a look at what's already there.

Re: “Op-ed: What Part of Illegal Don't You Understand?

I can't "like" this column enough. I'm so sick of hearing that "Obama" is sending these kids when it all starts with that 2008 law that was, if not unanimously, then damn near unanimously passed in both houses of Congress before the then-president (NOT Obama!) signed it. Change or amend that law. Don't take it out on a bunch of scared kids.

This whole thing would have been hilarious if it were a dark comedy, a la "Citizen Ruth," but watching it in real life was just sad, sad, sad.

Re: “Op-ed: What Part of Illegal Don't You Understand?

Does anyone remember Elian Gonzalez? I might not recall his name correctly. The Cuban boy whose mother died escaping from Cuba and the battle to get him American citizenship, which he (at 6 years old) wasn't particularly seeking. What a tempest that one was! What was your individual position back then and why? Is there any relationship to your position on these refugees?

These commercials clearly indicate the R candidates for governor are not thinking beyond the primary. They do not think the independent voter will remember this nonsense when the general election comes around. But they will. I am pleased at how many folks are being turned off by stupid commercials. Jones, Ducey, Thomas, et. al, take note. Go Fred Duval!

Re: “Media Watch

Thanks to the Arizona Daily Star customer service rep who just confirmed there was an across the board price increase on July 1, to cover the increased cost of ink and paper. Whatever. 23.2 percent is excessive. And the timing is questionable.
Too bad it takes a low-wage front line employee to do what the Publisher can't.

Re: “Kwasman Makes the Colbert Report, Launches Ad Buy

Maybe Kwasman believes that there no such thing as bad publicity in politics, just like in Hollywood.

Re: “Another Lens at the Oracle Protest/Counter Protest

Funny thing, imaginary borders and ignorance are a horrible combination for humanity. Then welfare comes up as part of the convo. Welfare... I work and pay taxes and receive food stamps and free medical care. So I guess that means that I, and at least four others I know are paying for our own welfare... And I'd love to see something besides hate out of tea baggers... I have yet to meet one I like. Judgment and anger are just not attractive to anyone except other haters. This ridiculous answer to helping children is reprehensible. I think guns need to be set aside and let people have the space to use brains instead. Am I dreaming? Or is it possible to get air to ignorant brains and create thoughtful intercourse?

Allyn Hill, is that you in the photo of the man with his neck veins distended looking like he is ready to explode? Wow, take a chill pill. If you don't have any Rx, rush Limbaugh can give you some of his OxyContin. The pain of denial must be excruciating.

Re: “Another Lens at the Oracle Protest/Counter Protest

Typical republicant. cant see the data nor the facts. So ailing hill, more Americans are becoming wealthier? I think you are full of crap. Special interests like what? Republicants don't fish for special interest money? Tell that to the Koch brothers. And you deny that corporate big money would rather keep the minimum wage down, and ship our jobs to other countries, in order to increase their profits, and shelter their tax dollars, all to give millions to PACs? There are more people "on the dole" as you say, because people need to eat. And not because they are waiting for handouts. Give the common person more credit. Most people want to work.

Re: “Media Watch

"... failed to mention the two pieces of information most key to readers: how the hell much, and how to sign up."
Remember, Chase isn't a news guy (ya know, who, what, where, when, why, how), and I'm sure the one copy editor left out there was loathe to make even one change to the stellar copy provided to her/him.
And Chase has not backed off his assertion that the cost to subscribers would not go up with this change. I have statements to the contrary. To the tune of a 23 percent jump. Guess Chase wasn't a math major, either.

A non issue until there are 11 articles a month worth reading. ADS should have just put the UofA sports coverage behind the wall. It is the only content they have that is saleable.

Re: “Another Lens at the Oracle Protest/Counter Protest

Gandalf, I was recently in both Turkey and Jordan (2 weeks ago). Yes there are many Syrians in both. Thankfully the hospitality and generosity of the Turks and Jordanians is abundant, as they both host refugees not just from Syria, but also Kurds, Iraqis, Palestinians and Egyptians. We could learn a lot from them.

Hi Gandalf
The UN sets up things called refugee camps.
