Re: “Andrew Thomas Will Fight the Mexicans, Gays and Liberals, According to His Terrible New Ad

For many years our current governor has been using the AzArmyNG to fly sheriff's deputies into the Vekol Valley area just south of I~8 to do the job the fed gov't is not doing. That is until Pinal county bought their own helicopter which they didn't take long to stupidly crash. Of course this is into another part of Az running to the border that some here insist is more secure than ever before.
I fly out of a rural south central Az airport and if the bad guys can get the drugs there then planes will come in and transload the product and fly it all across the US. This I have seen when I'm working on my plane in the evening.
The ads make a good point about state's rights which has slowly been eroded away by the gov't. As an example, long before the 19th Amendment became law Az was the first state to have a woman legally vote in an election. Az may lead the way with whackos but at least we don't keep them in the closet and even whackos have good ideas. In the case of these candidates they are pandering to the popular fears of the uninformed; and not just Republicans.
I would rather see states rights as the main issue. It may sound silly but why can't Az administer all these federal lands? Why did we have to pay all that money to run the Grand Canyon during the sequestration when it is within the boundaries of this state?
Yes, there are far more important issues than what I have mentioned but before ANY governor can REALLY be the governor we need to scale back some of this federal gov't intrusion into our state.
These candidates are sending generally bad messages but I suspect the Democrat messages will be similarly bad.

Although I'm a raving, left wing liberal, this guy doesn't sound bad at all. Is he hiding anything? Eh! He's too sane to win the primary.

Re: “Media Watch

I feel sorry for the newspaper delivery people who get up early and take us our papers. The Star will loose a lot of customers. Hence they loose icome. Don't care about the Star employees but only the delivery folks.
Hope the Star folks are reading this.

Re: “Foreign Exchange

"Raising money" for improvements? I thought that's what your profits go to make those improvements. I realize that the Loft is a "non-profit" but for the taxpayers to foot your bills with inclusion in the next Bond Package is not right. With so many more valid needs of the Bond to have the Loft in the mix is a waste of taxpayers money. I will vote against the Loft on that and will encourage my friends to do the same.
Go scam someone else for your improvements.

Guess it's a slow news day? Funny I guess. Maybe some day you can get a real newspaper job.
But on the other hand she had a nice figure under that costume!

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

Another stupid "survey". They are written by people with too much time on their hands or with an agenda of some type.
Tucson Weekly please spare us from this junk. Problem is the people in Scottsdale actually have real jobs. They are not selling tie-dyed T-shirts and Birkenstocks and jewelry to each other and calling it an economy.

A real estate company did a study to find excitement in cities. Read that one more time and think about it a moment. Has the absurdity sunken in yet?

Just look up Babeu at the New Times (Phoenix). You will then know him a LOT BETTER, sex scandals (homosexual) and all. And it's not that he's gay, it's that he uses him partners.

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

I need to correct my own comment. The immigration law I commented about was signed by George W, not his father George HW. Apologies for my inaccuracy. So Clinton was long gone at this point.

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

Clifford...

Since it was USAmerican policies and support for the decades of right-wing rule in Honduras (still), Guatemala and El Salvador, and the phony USAmerican war on drugs(tm), that created the conditions and maintains the drug cartels that these children are fleeing -- Yep we owe them PLENTY...

As for a nation of laws, ironically enough Obama is following a bush era LAW that requires a fair hearing for each of these children before they can be deported or allowed to stay...or did you MISS that part on fox noise?

Re: “Andrew Thomas Will Fight the Mexicans, Gays and Liberals, According to His Terrible New Ad

The main reason migration has slowed down is because the USAmerican "economy" has tanked while their Communities have gotten marginally better...

Arizona Republicans have NO ability to comprehend cause and effect...

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

Sorry folks, the starving children in this country can't be fed, we need the A-10 more, we must keep the musket factory open at any cost.

With any luck our starving kids will survive long enough to be the soldiers for our next push for democracy in the middle east
