Re: “Cash the Crops

Nick Meyers; Interesting dimensional view of the potential marijuana/hemp revenues and markets.

Had 205 passed we would of had a negotiated medical marijuana division of the Department of Health. Much like market forces competing against one another. If we limit this, it will impact that, so we can study and divert upon need. >> SAME?

So many ask then what would be the needs. DUH! Really? Cash flow and market expansion and availability of market limit competition.
Stifle, control outside interference collaborate with interstate economic federally illegal organizations against commerce laws build immune banking away from federal oversight.

There is no mention of all of these that have their hands in the cookie jar. Let's keep the jar called medical that is really the only way till the feds change. 205 was a market control travesty. We watch what happens in other states how it is administered through multiple existing state agencies. Not this GORILLA called the " Department of Marijuana License and Controls"

WHICH NO OTHER STATE HAS LEGALIZED I SUCH A RECLUSIVE GOVERNMENTAL SEGREGATED WAY AS 205 WANTED TO DO.

Re: “Ducey 'Next Step' Watch: Day 237—Talk Is Cheap Edition. Ducey's Funding-Lite, Destructive Education Proposals.

You are absolutely right David! Giving districts the authority to relax teacher certification will tempt some districts to follow the path of least resistance and hire non-professionals who will not contribute to increases in achievement. Teachers today are forced to deal with a multitude of harsh realities that are challenging even for certified, highly skilled and seasoned professionals Expecting those with no expertise to do the same is crazy!

Re: “Not Going Anywhere

The answer to world poverty and oppression is not for everyone to move to the United States. There are probably 3 billion people on Earth just as deserving as the people written about in the article. Obviously they can't all move here. More poor people are born every year than currenly immigrate to the United States.
Besides, why is the United States a safe place to move to? The rule of law. What does illegal immigration degrade? The rule of law. Whoops!
But the folks who write these articles get to feel good about themselves without actually doing any hard work and that's what liberalism is all about.

Heuisler: You are obviously unable to read an article in context. The section you quoted was describing America of Sanger's era - not Sanger. Sad!

Re: “Not Going Anywhere

If I were a citizen of a foreign country and I wanted to move to the USA why should I go through the trouble and cost of legal immigration when there are all these gullible cities offering defacto citizenship for breaking the law?
Why? There is a good reason Tucson has become a political and economic backwater, truly we are the Detroit of the southwest.

Engel has always been an inspiration to me, as a fellow Veteran. He has the heart and spirit as an angel. A true philanthropist and all around good person. He deserves everything good that comes to him. I know he will always do right by anyone he comes in contact with.

Personally, I really am loving the new format! If you want to base where you go on one persons opinion of one time and a few items,rather than the stories of the amazing people and places, you need to hustle on over to Yelp and hang out with the rest of the internet trolls! Congrats Weekly, on the great new writter!

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.
