Re: “Five tips for staying out of trouble in the dorms

Sgsmith, very well said.

I was in a dorm situation when I was in my late teens. Granted it was military and more strict, but there was your fair share of underage drinking etc. (which I think should be on the table for those potentially risking their lives for their government, but that's another story...). Marijuana? Never...but it was a different time and place. Regardless, I had a lot of fun but respected myself and my place and never risked damaging it nor getting in trouble.


If I'd had the opportunity to attend a school like the UofA, I would not have treated it as carelessly as so many college students today do. Be mindful of your situation and good fortune and have some self-respect.

Re: “Gabby Giffords: "We Must Draw a Bright Red Line Between Political Speech and Suggestions of Violence"

Creepy. Anyone who attacks Gabby Gifford is missing the big picture as well as historical details. Grow a brain, then try to evolve and find a conscience. This woman has earned the right to speak up for herself and others.

Re: “The Skinny

Hillary Clinton is politically savvy, probably cunning or, some say, ruthless. She is at least as smart as her husband. But calling her "filthy" is just mean-spirited and counterproductive, very Trump-like. I, for one, get tired and bored after someone accurately attaches truth to the GOP's responsibility for dead-end gridlock, unpaid wars, gerrymandering, elections for sale, destruction of the middle class, corporate welfare, (et.al.), and immediately the knee jerks up and someone else vomits out stuff like, "But Hillary is filthy." Issues and policy matter. Donald Trump never clearly explains issues or policies. Nobody has any idea what he will actually do as president.

Re: “Is Prop 205 Right for Arizona?

Take a minute let this soak in the proposed DMLC, will be structured like the Dept of Trans, DOT.

Within the DOT you have the DMV division of motor vehicles. The DMV is where your vehicle and drivers licence as well as title are administered.

When applying for and obtaining a driver's license your sign a agreement for the privilege to drive this is not a RIGHT. This will be similar when anyone signs an agreement even for the 6 to 12 plants per household. Will be signing an agreement to have the DMLC to be the presiding court in civil concerns.

This will be an agreement to have your place spot inspected like a car. Only various strains will be allowed. If caught with a strain out of registry not only will you be prosecuted for felony growth/manufacturing possession of a controlled substance to wit Marijuana. Beside the criminal court you will have the administrative court of the DMLC that levies fines like that of DOT/DMV. This is like alcohol except we will be turning it over to a rouge government.

DMLC will be it's own court, police force, interstate trade negotiator, license agency, collection WTF why do we have a government do we need two?

I just don't know how or why some would think we need this to sell marijuana. Don't take this huckster Holyoak's offer controls is prohibition . This charleton thinks hes has the solution to make prohibition it work where it has not ever. Keeps the status quo of high profits ruined lives, few get riches off the back of the ignorant. Mentally challenged medically needy.

This is the travesty a vote yes will bring. This is just a small penance of issues with this disgusting proposal

Re: “Is Prop 205 Right for Arizona?

Dave: So guess you agree with the analogy I take it you agree that some on say Yavapai county can get a felony and several related ancillary related charges for simple possession but in Pima county he walks or a civil fine ? That now each and every county can arbitrarily enact all kinds or retail license reg most dont relate to marijuana tho. Like smoke shops, horticultural supplies. I remember this kind of appeasement for profit and gain. That was called one state slave one state free. So giving some freedom was better than causing problems to making all free.

Way to go TW. Advise people how to rip off local businesses so that they have more drinking money.

I don't think I'd want his blood, either.

Re: “Best Two out of Three

Probably Matt Kopec will get my only vote in the primary. I don't know much about him, but the other two have taken public positions that I cannot, in good conscience, vote for.

I am an Independent who normally votes in the Republican Primary to try and keep the real crazies from being elected, but am voting Democratic this time around because I would like to see Joel Feinman knock off Barbara LaWall, who has been there far too long and thinks she owns the office.

Friese and Hannley got my vote. We need more women in elected positions, especially among that crowd on West Washington Street.

Re: “Is Prop 205 Right for Arizona?

Carpet Baggers is correct. The political lines have blurred on this issue, at least at the Federal level. The Republican Congress has defunded the DEA on this issue, and in the Congressional Budget Resolution of Dec 2014, told Federal Agencies to leave state legal businesses alone if they were abiding by state law.

Re: “A Broke Student’s Guide

From their website Kyle:

– Due to declines in gas prices and finance charges, the annual cost to own and operate a vehicle has fallen to $8,698, a nearly 2 percent drop from last year, according to AAA’s 2015 Your Driving Costs study. This research examines the cost of fuel, maintenance, tires, insurance, license and registration fees, taxes, depreciation and finance charges associated with driving a typical sedan 15,000 miles annually. In the United States, a driver can expect to spend 58 cents for each mile driven, nearly $725 per month, to cover the fixed and variable costs associated with owning and operating a car in 2015.

That assumes that you bought a brand new car, financed it at some interest rate. Then you suffered the immediate depreciation year after year.

I don't think this is you and me. I don't know anybody that bought a new car since Obama got elected.
