Re: “Danehy

This was rather appalling to read. I really dislike your opinions. Graffiti shouldn't be a problem. I think there are much bigger problems to address in Tucson. One being education. The youth of Arizona are not challenged in the classrooms and one might say that this has an effect on what the students are doing with their free time. I, as a 16-year old female high school student, feel that the government spends way too much time on the "negative" aspects of our society that will not be changed any time soon. Also, if it wants graffiti to be lessened, it would look for the root of the problem instead of taking the seemingly easy route. I am ashamed that my city, state, and country can't deal with such petty internal problems and get so caught up in them. I hope this changes soon, but it won't if the powerful don't get over themselves.

Nothing better to say

Re: “Editor's Note

The ascension of the Great Leader has already, just since the election, occasioned hundreds of attacks against peaceful people whose skin is simply too dark or whose accent is "too foreign," or whose dress is too different for his acolytes. This is not completely unrelated to the fact that He used hateful words and ideas in His campaign. He has allied Himself with skinheads, Ku Klux Klaners, and Nazis. All hail the Great Leader!

Re: “Hotel Heights

For me, this is exciting. Sort of.
I'll never use the hotel. Its a nice, visual thing for me and for many others as well who arrived in Tucson in the early seventies. Back then Tucson was already afflicted with the aftereffects (whoops, that was a mistake). of the downtown demolition of entire barrios to make way for a bunker complex designed by graduates of the East Berlin School of unwanted architecture. We installed a fountain in front of the community center with no shade whatsoever and it gradually died, being maintained by people who have gradually killed off all fountains downtown because as we all know, we live in the desert and fountains are bad because homeless people used them for bathing. Those same people also let the doors rot off the Leo Rich Theater. Since then, we've finally made some fixes to the complex and did some major overhaul work to the whole thing but gues what? It still sits underused most of the time. Marketing skills are lacking.
And who wants to come to this area for a conference or a good international get-together? It's hard to sell downtown still, with a music hall that looks like something from somewhere else, a broken fountain in front and an entire housing complex fenced off with a canvas fence, a revenge plot by HSL properties who also owns the dead hotel on the corner, which I affectionately have named the pink flamingo.
Whatever is going on between the City and HSL properties certainly deserves attention. Conferences have been held by design groups and the demolition of La Placita village was recommended. It was a failed project, and I would bet that some parts of that complex were NEVER occupied since it was built. But I digress. Soon the bus stop will be replaced by new construction as well. There's a grocery store downtown. The Chicago store is being fixed up for new occupants. Progress. No more funky art galleries, no more pharaoh store, no more grill. Hopefully the magazine store will survive. And hopefully, the people who move into the new places will also have ideas, because now its starting to look boring to me.

Re: “T.H.R.E.A.T. Watch: Normalizing 'White Nationalism' Down to 'Nationalism'

Actually Paul, you're ascribing some lofty ideals to a group that has done every dirty deal in the world to keep and maintain power over the darkies. There was a lot more angst fighting the germans than there was fighting the Japanese because the germans were so like us, people like the Drumpfs were sympathizers, afterall weren't most of their "hate laws" based on the U.S. model? Men like Jesse Owens were paraded around like sideshow exhibits, treated to toasts and then told they had to go sleep in the barn because blacks weren't allowed in the swanky places.

Don't worry, those guys and these guys will still stand idly by as Drumpf carves out a bigger chunk for himself. Actually, they'll caw about like jaybirds about how they "got their country back" as the water slowly rises and they realize they weren't invited into the boat, chained instead to their tarnished anchor called pride.

Re: “Danehy

Tom the real questions you must ask yourself are these. Did I acuse blacks of voting for Obama in 2008 because of skin color? Did I call them racist for doing it?

Re: “Danehy

Jeez Guys, can y'all read or what? The phrase, "Not all Trump supporters are racists..." means that a certain percentage (anywhere from some to most) of the people who voted for Donald Trump were NOT motivated by racism. (That's pretty much why the word "Not" is the first word in the sentence.) By falsely whining that I suggested that everyone who voted for Trump is a racist is a lame attempt at diverting attention away from the fact that, whatever excuse you might have had for voting for the person who ran the most racist Presidential campaign since George Wallace is fine, but it puts you in the same club with THEM. And it puts you in the indefensible position of having to claim that racism had nothing to do either Trump campaign or the outcome of the election. Why is it so hard to say "I voted for the same guy that a bunch of racists did, but I did so for different reasons?" I would never in a million years think that Bill Heuisler voted for Trump out of racism, but he has to acknowledge that he and the white supremacists who are spouting "Heil Trump!" on TV both voted for the same guy.

Re: “T.H.R.E.A.T. Watch: Lock Harry Reid Up! Lock Him Up! Lock Him Up!

Hyperbolic trolls are still on the loose, and they are trying to take over your house, Tucson Weekly. Ok, we can/must all give Trump a chance (more than he gave opponents in both primaries and general), but let's never be afraid to show some smarts as he deals with crises - and there will be many because there always will be crises. He cannot delegate responsibility to others for everything forever, and he is bailing already on his own hyperbole. Jobs? Wall? Drain the swamp? How?

Re: “Danehy

Sorry, Tom, but Chump did NOT "win fair and square". In addition to the weakness and incompetence of the Clintonistas, here are two of the key reasons why he "won": 1) an antiquated electoral college system that was established long ago precisely for the purpose of protecting the power and privilege of wealthy white males; and 2) voter suppression that the Republinazis very effectively implemented over the last decade, which was particularly aggressive in key states such as Wisconsin.

You gotta hand it to 'em. The Rs saw the demographic writing on the wall when Obama swept to victory eight years ago (and some saw it even sooner than that). They understand full well that their agenda of economic inequality and racial and gender discrimination will make it nearly impossible for them to win national elections going forward, so they came up with a strategy to address that: aggressively suppressing the votes of young people and people of color who vote overwhelmingly for Democrats. It's a brilliant stratagem, however immoral and profoundly anti-democratic it may be.

So, I'll say the same thing I said when Dubya "won" 16 years ago: the Republinazis STOLE this election fair and square. The Dumbocrats better get real, or it's going to keep happening, again and again.

Re: “Danehy

Tom from Tucson, you've known me and others who voted for Trump for decades. Your reflexive racial slurs against me annoy more than hurt because they come from a rote-mind incapable of filtering due to life-long prejudice (probably taught in school). Look in the mirror at a closed-mind and examine your conscience. First, you have no evidence from the past 20 years that I am either racist or stupid. Second, your so-called facts ignore reality when you tout current unemployment: the Obama Administration cites an "unemployment rate" that fails to mention more than 95 million American workers (almost 1/3 of the total) who no longer seek employment. They are ignored in Obama's stats. This alone should awaken you to Government lies and manipulation. You are blind to reality because of Obama's race. You are also blind to reality because of my race. Wake up. Bill from Tucson.
