Mike Elliott is amazing - Oh, that voice - and so funny.
1. Don't hire sleazes.
2. Don't hire pervs.
3. Don't hire dickheads.
If we applied these rules to the Weekly, there wouldn't be any staff.
I hope smoking weed is not what robbed jammerk65's ability to spell. His comment here was meant to be amusing I hope, and he is not really semi-illiterate from weed.
your tax dollars at work.
If they can't hire a dickhead, why would they take free advice from one ? Just curious.
The 30 large could be money well spent. Just saying, "don't waste your time or money" doesn't solve anything. Scrapping the entire board and bringing in the next bunch of untrained bozos doesn't solve anything either. Work with the problems you know, instead of creating a whole new bunch of unknowns. Then, if nothing else works, bring in the clowns.
"He might have what my friend Rob calls 'Shorty-Man Complex.'"
Isn't that more commonly known as a Napoleonic Complex? Or did we not want to insult the French (again)?
Tom, there you go again with the negative journalism. I mean, why couldn't you take the high road, and point out that 3% of the faculty at PCC APPROVED of his performance? But no, you dwell on the other 97%.
It's funny to see someone railing against prejudice while writing off an entire section of the nation as the "redneck South." They do say you criticize most strongly what you are yourself.
And, I guess because of his writing for a 2-bit paper his entire life in a forgotten corner of the world he thinks that he's far smarter than a former U.S. prosecutor, governor, and cabinet official who happened to mis-speak one sentence. Let's compare resumés for a minute.
He even manages to take a swipe at the root of all evil: charter schools. At least that's consistent. Danehy's diatribes just get more incoherent year after year.
If the ballot question is that difficult to read in English it shouldn't be on the ballot. Kinda like requiring legislative bills to be 1-page and on-topic, but that's unlikely too
Point well taken. That's great.
It's not a matter of speaking english. It's a matter of reading english well enough to be able to understand a ballot written in english legalese. Like this sentence from Prop 100: "THE REPEAL OF THE TEMPORARY TAX UNDER THIS SECTION DOES NOT AFFECT THE CONTINUING VALIDITY OF OUTSTANDING AND UNPAID TAX OBLIGATIONS." Many english speakers would have a hard time parsing that sentence. The rule should be, if Jan Brewer can't understand it, then people who speak english as a second language can't understand it and it should be translated into a language that they understand so they can make correct choices on the ballot.
The camp sounds a lot like *home schooling*.
Way back in the day, I was an artsy type high school student living in Austin Texas. The University of Texas (go longhorns) set up some very open and exploratory summer art classes for high school students. The school donated supplies and the teachers donated their time. They were the most important art classes I've ever taken because it was only about creating and exploring art, not making grades. I'm glad to see Kiva (cool name, too) doing much the same thing. She deserves all the support we can give her.
39. Thank you. Of all the things mentioned, TeaParty, Speed cameras, social media, that one bothers me the most. I think it speaks to Tucson second class nature. I mean, really, has Phoenix even dipped under 110 since 1987? We need to do better.
ya know..ive had issues with overpaid city planners and stupid council members and yes, mayors, city managers and governors...since the 1970s. wasted funding for religious based laws, security laws and bring everyone down to the most stupid, laws (to protect the stupid...). but if y'all are comfy with em.....go on. im a native, I hate you for what you've done to this town. intellectualize, rationalize and minimize all you want, I don't need to be monitored, watched, or dogged. our local government does. our water does. our misuse of land, including what was state parks' land does. large talking folks, keep talking..about the future for your precious kids and grand kids. and be comfy knowing we're spending money and resources on insignificant laws and corrupt political pockets. did this address the issue? in a broad sense, ya.
Maybe I'm just a feeble-minded right -winger, but what the Hell is a Blackmanistan ? Mr. Regan your stupidity is beyond belief. Do you really feel that someone who happens to disagree with Obummer is an instant racist? Your opinion would be funny if it wasn't so sad. True story. Some time ago I was having an adult beverage at my local watering hole. I happened to be wearing one of my many anti-Obummer T-shirts. A black gentleman walked by me, stopped to read my shirt and mumbled " racist". I asked if I could trouble him with a few questions. When he agreed I started with " what did you think of George Bush ?' 2 beers later I finally heard enough about Enron, illegal wars, blood for oil, Gitmo. WMDs and all the other crap the left has to offer on the subject. I told him I got the picture and asked him " are you black?" He said you know I am.. I then asked him if Bush was white. He answered in the affirmative. " Guess that makes you a racist, too. That ended that conversation.
Mr. Tom Daheny,
The traffic camera issue to me is not about private or gov't control (the potential for abuse has been proven with either). I don't feel any safer for having either of them to watch us. Most importantly and most objectionable is the fact that these items in public space were placed without without public vote, - and that, my friends, is decidedly unconstitutional, unlawful, and un-american. Security is found in our hearts to do what's right, not in what's mounted on the poles of nearly every intersection. This topic will never make the cover page of the 'Weekly' and I suspect that .001 percent of us are unafraid to vote or speak out against the impropriety. It appears BURNIE MAK and I are vastly outnumbered when we stand together with old Ben who in shaping our great nation rightly spoke...
"Those Who Sacrifice Liberty For Security Deserve Neither. He who would trade liberty for some temporary security, deserves neither liberty nor security." -Benjamin Franklin

@Bob Regan: "All that writing Matthew when what you REALLY mean is that you can't stand that a Blackmanistan is in the White House."
*You*, Mr. Regan, can't come up with any facts to refute Matthew's comments so you take the typical prog Low Road: insinuating that Matthew's disagreement with your Messiah is a racist.
I'd suggest that you could probably do better than that, but in reality you probably don't have the intellectual capacity to do so.
I am the 0.001 percent. I DEFINITELY can present a well thought out legal argument against those big brother eyes. A.R.S. 28- 1593 comes to mind
