Re: “Grijalva: Supreme Court's 'Non-Decision' on Immigration Executive Actions Leaves Vulnerable People Suffering

Some times consistence makes life so comforting. In this case, Raúl Grijalva is for something and I disagree with anti-America- pro- illegal immigrant position he has take (and always does). So comforting to know this pseudo-American and I will always disagree in that it confirms that I am on the right track. Thanks Raúl Grijalva.

Re: “Zona Politics: Pima County Supe Sharon Bronson, Board of Supes Candidate John Winchester and AZ House of Reps Candidate Kirsten Engel

So the will of the people in voting down the bond money for the Sonoran Corridor, originally labeled I-11 on County maps, is to be ignored? Supervisor Bronson says, above, "We have every intention of moving forward." So who exactly do the Supervisors work for? The crony capitalists at Sun Corridor Inc. or the voters of Pima County, who have spoken loud and clear?

I've been a Bronson supporter for years, and she has done a lot of good for our community. But lining up with the Fat Cats to overturn the decision of the voters is too far over the line, so not this time, Ms. Bronson, not this time.

And World View? Well, I'm not interested in spending twice my annual retirement income for a balloon ride. No wonder so many people are turning to "outsider" candidates!

Re: “Ducey 'Next Step' Watch: Day 36. Revenue-Neutral Noodling

The “outcome” was predetermined the minute Proposition 123 passed allowing little Dougie and his gang to walk away from their court-ordered liability to return the money they misappropriated from educational funds. Anyone expecting more money for education in Arizona should take up a vigil and await the sunrise in the west.

Re: “Ducey 'Next Step' Watch: Day 36. Revenue-Neutral Noodling

Is this "Classrooms First" council, just a put up job to give political cover to a Ducey predetermined outcome? Maybe check ALECs, and Graham-Keegan's policy proposals and you will have a fair idea of what a pre-determined outcome would look like, so Ducey can trot in and say, "Gee, a bi-partisan group looked at the issue and came up with the proposals, not me!" Critics on this site constantly whine about TUSD, but there are about 250 public school districts in this State, with an incredible range of sizes, needs, tax bases, and student diversities, and a one size fits all "solution" is complete nonsense. I love the issue, the legislature starves districts, of operational money, and capital money (the next lawsuit), then says "see, they aren't doing their job and we need more choice and more privatization", which is nonsense. This playbook from ALEC is going on in many States, including Nevada.

Re: “Zona Politics: Pima County Supe Sharon Bronson, Board of Supes Candidate John Winchester and AZ House of Reps Candidate Kirsten Engel

Kirsten Engel's comments demonstrate that one needn't have lived in Arizona forever to understand the state's possibilities, its problems and its politics. As a mom of a public school student she knows the dire straits of our schools and their need for adequate funding As a professional with experience in public and private sectors, she has an understanding of our economy and our state's and our universities' budgets. As an environmental attorney she recognizes and can work to provide solutions to our major environmental issues, particularly our need to conserve water and utilize our solar power. I think she can be a strong presence for LD 10 and southern Arizona in the State House.

If Bronson pursues RTA money to finance road repairs, they should be charged with fraud. I will never vote for another bond proposition in this county.

Re: “The Skinny

Chuckles,

If you managed a budget exceeding 1 billion dollars a year and did that successfully for a few decades...what would you expect to be paid? Are the taxes that you pay excessive? Maybe you can cite specific instances of financial mismanagement on the part of Pima County?

Just more hot air, baseless accusations. Is Chuckles ... Ally Miller?

Re: “Grijalva: Supreme Court's 'Non-Decision' on Immigration Executive Actions Leaves Vulnerable People Suffering

Open letter to Grijalva, a communist --

You say --
…. “Illegals in US suffering under US Toxic legal system”
…. “We are a nation of immigrants and a nation of laws,
…. “US immigration system splinters families, and betrays
…. our values

WE say --

• If our legal systems is so toxic, why are illegals in a death grip insisting on staying here? What suffering?
• YES, we are a nation of “Legal” immigrants. What is it you do not understand about “illegal”?
• Our immigration system does not splinter families –
ILLEGALS DO!!! –

……...WHO IS DUMPING CHILDREN AT OR BORDERS
…….. AND RUNNING?? ……….

• “Betrays our values”? – Since when do Americans share “communist” values?
• Since when do Americans use their children to become citizens of another country?

Grijalva you can feed that bull-shit to your communist constituents, but your bull-shit only reinforces why you and your illegals are discriminated against.

AN ILLEGAL IS AN ILLEGAL, is an illegal – what is it about that you don’t understand Grijalva? Or don’t “our” laws mean anything to you and your “illegals”?

Re: “Danehy

A great piece Tom, as always. Perhaps you could have included one other song - one by (those Southern Hippie Liberals) Lynyrd Skynyrd - "Saturday Night Special". I didn't know that gun control was an issue even in 1975....

"Hand guns are made for killin'
Ain't no good for nothin' else
And if you like your whiskey
You might even shoot yourself
So why don't we dump 'em people
To the bottom of the sea
Before some fool come around here
Wanna shoot either you or me"

Good ole boys can't argue with Skynyrd...right?
