Re: “Parental Guidance

Being so pro pot-I am betting Nick's dog uses pot now too and most likely looks like a Gremlin when it gets wet in the movie. Probably has a name that would fit a prison. But i am slightly stereotyping maybe. God bless America.

I hope your brother survived Mr Meyers.

Re: “Vegan Vibes

Every time I'm down town I hit Urban Fresh up. The service and food are amazing. Chauncey and his family are kind, cheerful, and welcoming. Best vegan restaurant in town!
Do yourself a favor and go in for their daily special and one of there housemade soups, you won't be disappointed!

Re: “Rep. Martha McSally, Former Rep. Ron Barber, and Courage

Martha, Martha, Martha....
If you can't stand the heat....my advice is to get out of the kitchen. Being elected by taxpayers means one must answer to their concerns. It goes with the territory. Republicans are facing an angry bunch, with good reason. Own up to voting for strip mining, own up to not demanding Trump produce his tax returns. Own up to voting against any protection of the enviorment and any protection for women making choices over their own bodies. Martha needs to own up and face her constituents.

Re: “Give Me Your Huddled Masses

We have 330 million people. While we should certainly do what we can to help refugees, economic and political, admitting every poor or disadvantaged person in the world into the U.S. is not the solution to world problems. At current rates, we'll have 1 billion people by the end of the century. We don't have enough water even if we drink our toilet water.

Re: “The Skinny

There are normal and abnormal patterns of response in these comment streams. Usually, people keep commenting and liking and disliking posts for a few days and then the activity stops. Occasionally, someone like you takes offense to a line of argument and keeps returning to the stream and inflating the likes and dislikes in a systematic way. When there are still multiple commenters visiting the stream, the likes and dislikes fall sometimes here, sometimes there, and in different combinations. When you see patterns like what developed here and in the January comment stream on vouchers, you know there is a troll -- in this case you -- systematically distorting the responses.

You can protest as much as you like, but what happened here in both of these streams is I caught you at it, tricked you into responding in a way that would make clear to anyone who read the stream what you were doing, and outed you.

Please do keep playing your tricks. I have a very full life but it often involves wait time and I enjoy checking in on the streams on my mobile phone when I'm stuck in a holding pattern. This kind of detective work is amusing, especially when it involves the "outing" of trolls who have nothing to offer but backing up the ignorant PCDP party line with transparent manipulation of comment streams and mean-spirited, below the belt insults of other commenters.

In the unlikely event that anyone besides the two of us is reading this stream I will note that anyone can access the other exchange we had RE your comment stream behaviors through this link:

Cheers, troll.

Re: “Rep. Martha McSally, Former Rep. Ron Barber, and Courage

Many on the left don't put much stock in that book, Rat T, but there are a good number of us that do.

Even in the current ugly, "reactive" political scene, there are more on the left using non-confrontational, constructive means to forward our policy goals than there are people breaking windows and screaming obscenities. But you know the media: it will always be the bad behavior and the sensational story that garners the most coverage.

As for this comment stream: Safier promoted the aims of a group that is targeting McSally, and this post was no doubt forwarded to their entire extended network, hence the large # of dislikes on posts that don't jump on the "disparage McSally" bandwagon.

And the usual suspects are of course offering up their vacuous, mean-spirited insults. Too bad they don't just find another hobby. Seems to me they foster an inaccurate and negative image of what "liberals" believe and how they behave, damaging the very cause they seem to want to promote.

For the first incident -- you can't fix stupid, and for the second... well, pretty much the same thing, although it would be nice if they could suspend people's driver's licenses for road rage incidents.

Humpty Trumpty repeated his call
But all of his lackeys and all his minions
Couldn't silence Liberty's calling again.

Re: “Here’s Your Chance to Win Thousands of Dollars

It would be my luck that the first question is "in 2016 how many times did TPD call for ICE when finding illegals in the city?"

My guess is zero. That's because we are a sanctuary city.

http://www.ojjpac.org/sanctuary.asp

Tucson Arizona has been added to the sanctuary city list because the Tucson police have instituted a new policy which prevents their officers from calling Immigration and Customs Enforcement to schools and churches.

https://www.azpm.org/p/home-articles-news/2017/1/26/105279-tucson-police-chief-sanctuary-ban-wont-work/

When in fact by calling ICE makes TPD's job is easier and the community is safer. We don't have to worry about criminals that have been deported.

Re: “Give Me Your Huddled Masses

Palisades - what a great idea! In fact, so great it should be considered by the Tucson City Council. You know how they allow comments by the public. Well, they could pass an ordinance that only approved speakers could make comments. Why, Tucson could be a model for the rest of the country! A Safe Sanctuary City.

Re: “The Skinny

What you're accusing me of is incorrect, but believe what your multiple personalities will believe.

Yet you have not denied your participation in the likes/dislikes which are occurring in multiples of 7 on this post and on the other one in which I pointed out your inability to take the insulting which you so easily dish out. Funny how that works.

Insult me all you like. From viewing your posts on Safier's blogs, besides being extremely long-winded, it's all you have. Well, that and 7 devices. Talk about being caught red-handed.

Go ahead and discuss that with one of your other personalities, as you did yesterday, with your 11:18 AM and 1:03 PM posts. It would be nothing new. I've read it with your posts before and I'm sure it will continue. Talk about being clumsy and depressingly inept.

Re: “Vegan Vibes

Urban Fresh is a wonderful restaurant for the healthy food they provide and for the love the owners share. Eating fresh whole plant foods is the wave of the future. They offer food that is life supporting unlike so many other restaurants that are still stuck in the old model of offering food that is heart clogging and cancer promoting. Want to understand why animal food is so toxic and plant food is so healing? Start with Dr. Michael Greger's book, How Not To Die. This book is full of nutrition based scientific data on the power of whole food nutrition. Thankfully this book is now being used in medical schools because it is so well referenced. Need some more help in becoming a whole food plant -based eater? Check out the Happy Vegan Couple page on Facebook or YouTube. My hubbie and I post plant-based cooking videos showing step-by-step instructions. Want more help, check out our Happy Vegan Couple House Party Video on our sites which tells about a class we do to teach people how to be successful plant-based eaters. There is a whole world on-line for folks eating plant-based. Check it out if you want to have optimal health for you and your family. And when you're hungry in Tucson, go enjoy the lovely food at Urban Fresh. We need to keep this restaurant going for a long, long time!
