Re: “Community Connections

Thank you so much for this article. I am almost in tears here. To see something that started so little become what it is today, and to think of what it will be tomorrow leaves me flabbergasted. With every life we are able to touch, PIFT continues to grow in spirit. And although, we will never be able to help every single one of our families in need, we continue to fight this war against poverty! Ms. Danyelle Khmara, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. Peace and Love, Engel.

Re: “The Skinny

I understand that Highwire bar is aligned with the Grijalva clan whose dynasty over Tucson-area public offices is threatened by newcomers such as Sedgwick. I've met and discussed some TUSD issues with Ms. Sedgwick and come away with the impression that she's very sincere about solving the many problems plaguing the district.

As for commentators on this board; either you are cronies of the Grijalvas, employees of Highwire, or are at the level of maturity to dismiss the new board member who's been in office for three days based upon the gossip of some bartenders.

Oh, and the beer. I used to manage bars. If the $265 Delirium Noel keg was even as small as a quarter barrel (pony) keg. That's still about 60 full-pint pours coming in at about $4.42 per pour. The ideal pour cost for a draft beer is about 9-12 percent, however, with ultra-premium beers it is simply not realistic to pull in a 90% profit from each pour.

If the price was listed as $12, there's an expectation that it be a full 16 oz pour. Had Highwire served it that way, they would've managed only a measly 64% profit on each pour. However, they'd have sold an impression of their establishment that their customers can expect to not be completely gouged for a beer that is a seasonal treat. If their attitude is to fight with their clientele and try to embarrass their customers to the local media, then they don't deserve to stay in business.

Re: “Editor's Note

JJMarks, thank you for attempting to correct me - for saying Sanger did not believe in abortion. The article you referenced certainly set me straight, confirming the campaign Sanger and others who wanted to protect the Gene Pool waged for the sterilization of the unfit and the lesser breeds.
I quote your reference:
"The flip side of shaming wealthy white women into reproducing more quickly was figuring out a way to keep the inferior stock from breeding, so that healthy and wealthy white women could catch up and forestall the deterioration of the race. The answer to that quandary was forced sterilization on a massive nationwide scale in order to keep undesirable people from procreating.
The principle targets of the programs included not only women of color (primarily Southern Black women, although Californias sterilization program targeted many Latina women), but also criminals, the poor, and any womenincluding white womenwho were believed to be feebleminded, with feeblemindedness often corresponding to sexual promiscuity.
All of this is to say that concerns about population control weighed heavy on the minds of Americans in the early 20th century. Classes on eugenics were taught in colleges nationwide; eugenics was presented as scientific fact in biology textbooks; and the American Eugenics Society held Fitter Families Contests at state fairs throughout the 1920s, during which rural American families were encouraged to compete with one another to determine which family had the best human stock. Medals that read Yea, I have a goodly heritage were awarded to families that were deemed genetically favorable.
It may seem bizarre and Orwellian to us now, but that was the United Statesin which Sanger lived. And given the enthusiasm with which ordinary Americans embraced eugenics, it is no surprise thatSanger eventually joined up with them.

Insult people?

I've never insulted one person who didn't bring it on, such as yourself.

With the possible exception of overrated musicians, such as Bob Dylan.

How can you ignore the link from the San Jose Insider. You read it. How can you defend your comment? Or is this all you do, attempt to insult people ?

Re: “Don of Bread

If, unfortunately, the online version won't contain info the print version does, could you in the future just repeat the basic address-phone-intrawebs stuff in the article text? A little little redundancy wouldn't hurt hurt.

Re: “Editor's Note

Like I said...useless links.

No proof of anything.

I actually have a life outside of mama's basement. I actually live in my own house with my own family. You and Wrong, Again are proving yourselves to be on a level...a very useless level.

P.S.-After that stupid post, I take back the statement in which I said it seems like you have a sliver of intelligence. Sometimes even I slip up. I am human you know.

Re: “Editor's Note

Troll? What do you call what you are doing? Useless links? I don't see any supporting your view. Why is that?

Next time you say "nobody" you might want to check first. Now get out of your Mom's basement and wash those pajamas. You're starting to smell.

Friend? Seriously Larry? Wrong, Again is about the same amount of friend as brain cancer.

Oh, by the way, thanks for all those useless links.

Are you training under Wrong, Again? If so, you gotta step up your troll game.

You actually seem like you have a sliver of intelligence. Wrong, Again doesn't ever seem like that.

You need to pay more attention in (low) class.

That's right What Again, nobody is talking about repealing the 2nd Amendment. You can relax.

Maybe try relaxing while you read this article about the efforts to repeal the 2nd Amendment.

Re: “Editor's Note

"The rescinding of the Second Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America, that document that liberals, aka, 'progressives', in reality communists, have so much revulsion for."

Nobody is trying to rescind the Second Amendment cupcake snowflake. The commie progressive liberals will not knock on your mama's basement door, come downstairs and take your precious guns.

You can change your underwear now. Believe me, this threat (and all of the others) you've dreamed up isn't (aren't) real.

Re: “Not Going Anywhere

The Tucson Weekly should read these comments and take note:

In 2006 This commentary on this kind of "border" story got 99% approval; now the results are almost reversed with an approximately 95% approval to 5% disapproval.

You'd THINK the Weekly just MIGHT want to do a "balanced" story illustrating BOTH sides of the issue; but of course they won't. They won't because it would expose the lie that all those who want to protect the border, are racists!

What about it Weekly?

Do you want to report news and real public opinion?

Or do you want to continue to spew outdated propaganda?

Don't you realize that Margo Cowan and Isabel Garcia have exposed our community, including illegal aliens, to incredible misery and hardship?

Don't you realize the "Raza Revolution" has lost?

Re: “Editor's Note

William Heuisler would do well to read about Margaret Sanger from the words of Black women who are aware of her ties to eugenics AND who can tell the history of the Black community who worked closely with Sanger to advocate for birth control.

Lumping Gosnell in with PP is unbelievably dumb.

I understand that some folks just have a difficult time with history. Facts are hard.
