Re: “High Hopes for High Times

In a perfect world, it would just be about the health and quality of life for the patient; Unfortunately, in the world we live in, unless there is money to be made -- and I mean lots and lots of money -- the health and quality of life for patients will not even move the needle on the average career politicians G.A.S. (give a sh@t) gauge.

Re: “Hotel Heights

I fail to see the "Hispanic" influence. Furthermore, why would it matter?

Judy Burns never spent a dollar running for reelection to the TUSD board -- and was easily reelected twice.

Re: “Betsy DeVos, Privatization and . . . Fallujah?

If David had substituted the word "Benghazi" in just a few places, we would all know the story, but the outcome is a bit different in that the families had no place to go. That is until Donnie come on to the scene.

In any even, Donnie has chose wisely for Education and for me, at least, the word "PROFIT" is beautiful - it makes things happen.

"Then they end up in handcuffs, in cages, in kangaroo courts, in prisonand then who knows?"

You mean that journalists are being treated as poorly as Christians are? How did that happen?

Does that mean you would get $60,000 in federal tax money?

Re: “T.H.R.E.A.T. Watch: Journalist Christiane Amanpour Is Worried

Here is another Christiane lie exposed. Remember how she lamented for the youthful illegals that Obama was helping?

Recent government data shows that more than two-thirds of the aliens the Obama administration has brought to the United States under the president's Central American Minors program werent actually minors at all.

The only person that misses Rat T is Rat T. Both of the comments above are a weak attempt by Rat T to get undue sympathy. How pathetic.

Re: “Guest Opinion

He has my vote. He questions whether expenses like the too wide expansion of the Broadway Corridor are relevant with today's traffic projections. He cares about neighborhoods and works hard to solve problems with matters affecting them. Even in matters where I might disagree, I feel he has thought through things and made choices, rather doing the politically expedient.

Re: “The Skinny

Don't worry about the Grand Canyon. I'm sure it and every other National Park are under consideration for new Trump hotels and resorts. The Twitterer-in-chief promised jobs and thanks to America's untapped natural resources and treasures just lying there for the taking, well let's just say you better see them sooner than later.

Re: “Guest Opinion

Putting all else aside, how is it OK that one candidate gets a guest opinion that is in essence a political advertisement for himself? Did the candidate pay for this advertisement? Does the Weekly intend to extend the same opportunity to other candidates in the future?

Re: “T.H.R.E.A.T. Watch: Journalist Christiane Amanpour Is Worried

To quote Reagan, "there you go again" Danehick. Christiane wasn't lecturing America and she wasn't talking about Trump. She WAS talking to other journalists about their need to step up and report the facts and question our leaders. in order to ensure the survival of our democracy.

Re: “Guest Opinion

If I remember correctly, Steve first left the Republican party and then registered and ran for his second term as a Democrat because the Republican party, even here in Pima County, proved inhospitable to a centrist Republican council member. Republican or Democrat, Steve is the same intelligent, honest, hard-working council member for whom I wish I could vote.

Re: “High Hopes for High Times

Just a tidbit a new foundation is being set in Washington a new congress.

Congress just passed a" 21st Centuries Cure Act " This was co written by Our Martha McSally.

https://www.statnews.com/2016/11/30/21st-century-cures-act-house/

This is major this alone in the 11th hour will force the new congress to take action. We will see the schedule 1 change and study federal standards licensing processing standards. flower will be allowed as it is the fastest delivery method possible controllable on dosage and safe.

We dont hear that much from McSally in this tumultuous political climate. With this we know that she is working this is how the schedule 1 change will happen. Plus so much more for mental health. A bomb went off in Washington exploding the climate I am happy to have her there in a senior environment with a need to come to her endorsement for the next congress.
