Re: “The Skinny

What about disclose of that middle school texting one another in class (and I'm only assuming they are texting "one another")? Disclose it or put your phone away. It's especially childish when they do it while citizens are speaking. If it's a county paid for phone we are entitled. I'm quite sure it's not Huck ordering pork chops or Ray tallying his graft for retirement.

Re: “"Raise Taxes on Corporations and the Wealthy." Hillary said It. Arizona Democrats, You Can Say It Too.

Perhaps this was the very subject Bill Clinton and Lynch were discussing during their coincidental encounter at Sky Harbor airport. Oh ! I'm sure it had nothing to do with the ongoing investigation of Hilary's E-Mails or the possible corruption within the Clinton Foundation or perhaps the Benghazi incident that took the lives of four of our countrymen. Heck ! we don't believe one single word those Marines have to say about not engaging the enemy and what not. We love you Hilary and we know you would never lie to the American people.

You'll get more power out of the plug in models but I recommend the cordless for the shower. Saying the shower itself won't do the trick.

Well that didn't take but three days. Loretta Lynch (AG) has blocked access to the Clinton Foundation emails for 27 months. Isn't that odd? This is loads more important than Watergate. It may actually have the Hillary emails that they have been hiding.

Our confidence in these liars is completely gone. Every day is a new fraud.

Hey 13!

*These are slightly different versions of the one I previously posted.

*This quote is also included on one of the albums/HBO specials from (I think) the early '90s, although I couldn't find it in my search. If you figure it out, please don't hesitate to leave a post here.

*But heck, why just read it when you can watch it:

B)Also, here's some bonus Carlin for ya, because you can NEVER have enough Carlin:

4)More bonus Carlin:
https://en.m.wikiquote.org/wiki/George_Car…

Okay, I'm finally through. Carlin was the master. He was one of those rare comedians that could do lowbrow and deep thought comedy almost perfectly. The only other comedian that could pull that off, IMHO, was Bill Hicks. It truly blows that neither of them are with us anymore. DC

Re: “"Raise Taxes on Corporations and the Wealthy." Hillary said It. Arizona Democrats, You Can Say It Too.

Debra,

Care to bet that Lynch will be named a Clinton Supreme Court nominee after she kills the FBI investigation into Hilary's email fiasco?

Read Clintons Cash. I thought it would be a Koch Bros hatchet job until I read the endorsement by the progressive economist and philanthropist Jeff Sachs. The film version will air on the eve of the Dem's national convention. Should be interesting.

With the action taken to harm our economy short sighted is all we have left. Politicians do nothing but raise and spend money. We foot the bills.

Here comes another taxpayer bailout.

Yeah, crazy things, like progressives "would rather kill kids than educate them".

At least you're consistent with your ignorance. Please keep up with your uninformative and untruthful posts, at least they're good for a laugh! Believe me, that's all they're good for.

Re: “Local Media Pros Som and Krystin Lisaius Indicted on Drug-Related Child Abuse Charges

Too bad the Pima county attorney running for re-election didn't think it was necessary to arrest or book them into jail like the common folks that commit crimes. Nor did she see any reason to ask for bail on the accused crime, they simply walked out of court "on their own recognizance". Really? When was the last time a case of child abuse was treated this way? I guess if you have connections to law enforcement, you get a free pass? Or if you can afford that high profile attorney, it means you have lots of money and power, so better not go after then like the poor people? Maybe the Weekly could find out who else was at this cocaine party? I'd love to know.

Re: “"Raise Taxes on Corporations and the Wealthy." Hillary said It. Arizona Democrats, You Can Say It Too.

"I have solved this political dilemma in a very direct way: I don't vote. On Election Day, I stay home. I firmly believe that if you vote, you have no right to complain. Now, some people like to twist that around. They say, 'If you don't vote, you have no right to complain,' but where's the logic in that? If you vote, and you elect dishonest, incompetent politicians, and they get into office and screw everything up, you are responsible for what they have done. You voted them in. You caused the problem. You have no right to complain. I, on the other hand, who did not vote -- who did not even leave the house on Election Day -- am in no way responsible for that these politicians have done and have every right to complain about the mess that you created."

Re: “Local Media Pros Som and Krystin Lisaius Indicted on Drug-Related Child Abuse Charges

Too bad the pima county attorney treats people so differently, depending on their social status. When was the last time someone accused of child abuse was allowed out on their own recognizance? I guess if you can afford that attorney, the DA doesn't bother even taking them to jail or booking then like the poor common people.

I couldn't have put it into better words.

If Chump wins, it will confirm to that we live in a country full of short sighted idiot voters. If Billary wins, it will not be too much different than if Chump wins.

It's a real lose/lose situation. Worst election year EVER. DC

Trump is looking better every day. Bill Clinton should never have met with the AG on the tarmac at Sky Harbor. Unbelievable! The Clintons are always right next to crimes.
