Re: “Huppenthal Takes Another Run At Explaining His Blog Comments (And Other Things)

Sway doo nyms? Seriously? And this bozo considers himself to be educated? And his language and comments were a little rough? Huppenthal is nothing but a deluded, far right-wing fanatic who has lived in a fantasy world since childhood.

Re: “Fook and Mishell to Leave KFMA

Fook was great before she showed up. She brought the whole show down. She wasn't funny and was generally annoying. Good riddance......

Re: “Ted Nugent Endorses Dark Horse GOP Gubernatorial Candidate Frank Riggs

So Riggs will get the pants-shitting, draft-dodging, assault weapon-carrying vote? Somehow, I don't think Nugent fans will carry him into Babbitt tower.

Re: “Video of Tucson Streetcar Ride Down 4th Ave Underpass

What I want to know is?.......who gets to hose down the vomit from the drunk U of A students at the end of the night?
So who is this Gene Caywood guy who loves playing with toy trains that we have to pay $197,000,000 worth of my money? He is listed in the Star as the "Visionary" who dreamed up this mess. And we need fewer "visionary" people in this city and more accountants.

Re: “Video of Tucson Streetcar Ride Down 4th Ave Underpass

Looks like it ran a 4-way stop sign at 53 seconds into the video.

And I bet the TV talking heads will e breathless about their virgin rides today.

Re: “Ted Nugent Endorses Dark Horse GOP Gubernatorial Candidate Frank Riggs

Several years ago a Northern California office holder, Frank Riggs, had a protest going on in his office that he did not like. Since the protesters would not leave, Mr. Riggs had security come through and daub the eyes of the protesters with rags soaked in irritant in an attempt to make them leave. There's a bit more info about Frank Riggs at: http://stonewalldemsaz.org/friggs.htm

Re: “When Drinking Liberally Goes Wrong: Tucson Group 86'd by The Shanty

"if the Shanty is to survive?" I live in Phoenix and every time I'm in Tucson I try to visit the Shanty (stale popcorn and all, which I ate when I was there in June). I've been going there since the 1970's because The Shanty is always The Shanty and that's why I love it. The Red Garter, a place I have never been, sounds like a jaded dinner theatre with bad musical comedy.

Re: “Reefer Research Madness

After Vietnam, the pentagon and the military/industrial/congressional lobby figured out that if you tied the warriors to the war, then any dissenters could be branded "not supporting our troops". This was very prevalent in the Iraq debacle.

We betrayed our veterans by asking them to lay down their lives and well-being so that some old white men could feel powerful, so some oil people could feel wealthier, and defense contractors could show some big quarterly profits to the stockholders. The idea that after destroying Iraq's infrastructure we would somehow be welcomed as liberators and democracy would flourish was ludicrous at best. Oddly George H.W.Bush was a pragmatist who knew an invasion of Iraq would be a disaster and he avoided it. Now we all suffer with our vets as the echo chamber spins what a great idea it all was in spite of the results, everything bad being attributed to the succeeding president.

War and recession have defined our country since 1789 when we had a recession following the revolutionary war.

We wouldn't be squabbling about healthcare, education and employment today if we could break this cycle. The beginning of this debate is what I hope comes from all this, for our vets and future generations

It took a long while before we could say Vietnam was a colossal mistake, I wonder how long this one will take.

Re: “Fook and Mishell to Leave KFMA

Mornings were super sweet when The Frank Show moved to KLPX and KFMA had to ACTUALLY play music, why can't they do that instead of having a morning show.

Re: “Tucson Scientifically Proven More "Exciting" Than Scottsdale, Less Than Tempe & Flagstaff

Clean and rich = exciting? Scottsdale is plastic and too full of boring people checking out each other's watches to see who's getting richest.
That nauseating smell on the NW side is your excrement getting turned into recycled water to water the parks and golf courses. Has to happen somewhere. In Scottsdale they probably pay to send it to a poorer city so they don't have to smell it.
Tucson isn't the most organized or rich city, but it's more interesting than anywhere in the Valley.
