I'm not going to bother reading this article, I only came for the opening Dickens. We all know that the current crop of councilors are going to easily sail to re-election so we may as well stop fooling ourselves on the prospect that they won't win. Lets put the election routine behind us and moveon.org.
so rich with real. beautiful.
Only if we could deport all 11 million of these free loading assholes... Then this would be a non-issue.
Here is a real plan. Ask for the funds that PP gets so that you can educate the kids they won't be able to afford to kill. Two problems solved.
Tucson is really only one city and it would become a better one if all concerned would try a bit harder to work together. It wouldn't be so terrible to have a Republican or two on the City Council, but the ones running this year don't seem to have much positive to offer apart from fresh faces, new names. Even Ms. Burkholder, the most experienced and closest to ready to serve, doesn't appear to offer any solid ideas on how to produce the sort of employment opportunities that would entice her kids to remain Tucsonans when they're old enough to need to earn their own living. And all three of them are opposed to all seven bond measures on the ballot, apparently convinced that reshuffling the available dollars will enable the city to accomplish the goals its share of the bond money is designated to address. Also, perhaps they actually believe the story Revitalize Tucson, aka Christine Bauserman and Frank Antenori, are selling on one of their street signs: the three incumbents have raised your property taxes. If they don't, they ought to denounce the lie; if they do, they certainly don't understand municipal finances well enough to serve on the Council.
You can prove trickle down works. Keep raising taxes on the upper class, add you penalties and surcharges, run their businesses out of the country and you won't have cash to let Planned Parenthood abort children.
Borrow more from China? Is that your financial plan?
This Z-guy needs less publicity, not more. His life is a mess. He can't get it right no matter what. The only thing his name triggers is lowering a Troll drawbridge online; the bridge goes down for a while, and we all have to consider what he did all over again. The kid wasn't perfect but he's dead, and George Z. walks the Earth as some kind of perverse media zombie - ready to pose for selfies, If Karma doesn't catch up, it would be surprising.
Burkholder - What world are you living in? Trickle down economics DOES NOT WORK!!! Stay out of the way of business? Come on!! It has been 30 years of this bullshit and nothing but poverty has tricked down to the real people!! We definitely DO NOT need Maricopa County politics (Where the lunatics run the asylum) in Tucson!!
Much as I disagree with the leftist local media (TW & Star), I do not want to see them disappear. Judging from their ad budgets, mattresses and hearing aids must be wonderfully over-priced, for them to afford keeping the 4th estate going. Still, the thing I miss most are the classified ads. Can't the eds do a really careful study, to see how they could supply classifieds cheaply enough to get rid of the absurdly ineffective Craigslist. Figure out how anyone can list a $100 item for 10 or 15 bucks for a few days and watch the circulation climb!
Ally, I like the way you bring sexuality out into public space with such honesty and balance. Especially true re bisexuality discussion. Can a bisexual person be monogamous? Or does his/her sexuality demand both? If you are monogamous, then are you straight or gay in practice, regardless of your sexual instincts. Does this issue beg the question of what is identity?
The comment about city-wide elections doesn't acknowledge that the GOP slate is entirely a city-wide plot of Frank Antenori and the disgruntled goats. They have no understanding of their respective wards, as the article evinces. GCC was not wanted there by the people of the WARD, wing-nut. And by the way, Latino Catholics ARE Christian to everyone but a racist hatemonger.
Congratulations to all! Please do not underestimate the importance and value of the TW to Tucson. Again, congrats, and keep up the good work.
Lack of education or just being too young to "get it" could be a problem for local news people who just have their eye on moving to a bigger market. A few weeks ago Channel 9 had a story on the anniversary of the fire at Old Tucson. The news person reported that it was the movie location for the "Gunfight at the Oklahoma Corral." Apparently someone decided not to abbreviate the letters OK. I worked at Channel 9 in 1960 when the news dept. consisted of one person. Mac Marshall. He wrote, produced, and delivered the nightly newscast and wouldn't have made that mistake.
The billboard by the liberals in charge to all possible newcomers in Tucson is quite big and clear.
White Christians not wanted. This is Grijalva land. If you're not brown, you're not down.
Romero, who initially wanted to examine a possible deal with Grand Canyon University, backed off her support in the face of opposition from neighborhood groups that saw El Rio Golf Course as a historic landmark in the local Chicano-rights movement and LGBT groups that didn't like the Christian college's anti-gay policies.
Ally, a question, and an answer from your perspective, please. Can someone be a heterosexual in one-one-one situations, but in the context of a threesome, foursome, or moresome, go with the flow?
How would you label that person? (besides a hedonist)
If the roads are falling to pieces it's because Republicans in Phoenix have taken all our road maintenance money so they can "balance" the budget while giving big tax cuts to their wealthy donors.
It don't matter who's running in what ward it is a lock up with the democrats and the city wide elections where each ward gets to vote on the other wards candidate. Arizona's political machine is so much like Chicago's. And it works the blue bloods are painting the state red and have for years. Just look at the gerrymandering of the redistricting commission. All the while crawling under the blanket of republican oppression. The city of Tucson cant and wont expand it's territorial area if they did they would have to follow redistricting laws and lose their advantage the City of Tucson is now Owned by the U of A largest employer and tax payer
More of the same. Better take a government job. It's all there is.
5th poorest city in America, and damn proud of it. So close to No.1.
Four more years, four more years.
