Re: “Ladies And Gentleman, I Give You, Our Republican Legislators. (Or, Why Do They Love Tax Cuts More Than They Love Children?)

Arizona voters weren't bothered much by the lawless Republican legislature. They gave their approval by re-electing them and keeping the Republican majority. People are satisfied with the way things are in Arizona. Sigh.

Re: “McCain: "I Know the Use of Torture Compromises That Which Distinguishes Us From Our Enemies"

...and here I thought it was the turbins and the masks over their faces that really distinguished them.

The Senate knew about this John. You are in the Senate.

Why didn't you speak up then? Trying to protect Americans, or a career?

Re: “Ladies And Gentleman, I Give You, Our Republican Legislators. (Or, Why Do They Love Tax Cuts More Than They Love Children?)

Doggone it, David, there you go again. Here I am trying to feel the Christmas Spirit, and you bring up the condition of the logic of those who run our fair state. The voters said do this. The Leg. majority said we would rather give tax cuts to corporations than do what the voters said. The Leg said we can't follow what the voters said because we have reduced our revenues by giving tax cuts to corporations. The Leg. is unwilling to admit that all those tax cuts have hurt our state and have not yielded any returns in terms of new jobs and new revenues from wage-earning taxpayers. The public did not give us very many new members of the legislature. The courts are our only chance to restore these wrongs. The rule of law is very critical if we are to remain truly American. This has nothing to do with Pelosi, Obama, or anyone else when it is finally decided. FIX ARIZONA and fix our public schools! MERRY CHRISTMAS and HAPPY HANNUKAH!

Re: “Smashing the Stigma

We just watched a man choked, tackled and ultimately died for selling loosies in NYC. Cigs are so valuable because of the greedy govt tax on them.

Just like the IRS, govt hates competition.

I hate the ignorance and corruption. If we allow it by leaving it gets worse. You don't run from fights. You fight them.

None of you whined that "it's for the children" as you stole and misused Deseg money to expand hiring, bloat administration, and improve benefit packages.


You made your bed...lie in it.

Some politicians favor an uneducated workforce because it reduces payroll costs for business. Of course, it also reduces the liklihood that high tech employers will relocate to Arizona. But hey, that still leaves mines and quarrys, antique fighter planes and, well, cleaning up after rich people. Talk about your oligarch utopia...

JTrue67 - while I completely agree with your sentiments about the AZ legislature - truly horrible and not at all working in the interest of improving and preparing AZ for the near and long-term future, I think using name-calling terms like that hurts your cause. Just my 2 cents.

Re: “Tables Turned

I am very upset to hear of all this controversy. I found a very sweet little cat that I cannot keep who needs a home and now I don't know what to do. If the Hermitage is no better than the Animal shelter, would it be better for me to take "Charity" there? I want her to have a good chance at a happy life and now I am afraid for her future. Can anyone help me?

Paying for it is easy: repeal some of the corporate tax cuts passed since 2000 (when the voter mandate was passed).

Re: “Smashing the Stigma

This is the way government has gone! We have policies derived strictly for income and nothing else Non-profit merely means the cost to dispense is all used up in operating costs. So why would a dispensary want to lower prices that would mean they had to come into line with other comparable business. Dispensary set themselves up entirely for income and Tax collection? Using the regulatory statutes that the citizens don't see or vote for to enforce with tax dollars their market. The whole idea of medical marijuana was to help those with debilitating ailments so now it is said then if you can afford the doctors and the state license then you can have some relief just as long as you pay the tax collector. I see the transient population growing as this is the way going for so many Americans. Ever since Kennedy by-partisan means nothing more than how the dollar is split and put the power of government behind collection. This is SAD a gravely ill society that rewards those that work in government will be taken care of at the expense of the sick and ailing. God Bless America

Re: “Ladies And Gentleman, I Give You, Our Republican Legislators. (Or, Why Do They Love Tax Cuts More Than They Love Children?)

Looks like several posers, or just plain trolls, rushing to the defense of our criminal, Taliban-like-lege by posting their usual hate-mail, character assassination of Pelosi, and invoking right wing propaganda blogs in their fact free rants, as if their lynch mob mentality was somehow legit just by their saying so. But these are the same stooges that gobble down the Republi-klan lie machine manure by the shovel full. So no news there.

Re: “Ladies And Gentleman, I Give You, Our Republican Legislators. (Or, Why Do They Love Tax Cuts More Than They Love Children?)

Okay, David. You sound like you might have the solution in hand, is it workable or is it a sloppy mess. What programs would you cut to restore this money? It's only $1B so making our politicians look like fools should be an easy task. Please, feel free to paraphrase though I would welcome an original thought.

Re: “Alton Brown Wants You to Tell Him Where to Eat in Tucson

The Little cafe Poca cosa (anything on the menu), Chef Alisah's (combo for 2), El Sure (any kind of soups). Snow Peas (Joe's special), Sonoran hot dogs just go to either Taqueria Jason or Aqui Con El Nene. Many people mentioned Miss Saigon...Its the best in Tucson for sure but I am sorry. it just Tucson good, and the last one ...Poppy Kitchen (fish #2)

Re: “Ladies And Gentleman, I Give You, Our Republican Legislators. (Or, Why Do They Love Tax Cuts More Than They Love Children?)

It certainly looks like we have lawmakers who refuse to follow laws - laws that in this case were approved by a majority of voters. Perhaps better put, the lawmakers refuse to respect laws and who want all the rest to give up and go away. They should all just do the job of governing and fund the schools - all of them.

See if the building owner cut a sweetheart deal. It looks like the last deed was activated 8/11.

That building, along with the Bevel/former DPC warehouse and other structures in the area, has long been scheduled to be demolished to make way for the Downtown Links extension that will connect Aviation Highway to Interstate 10: http://downtownlinks.info/app/uploads/2014…
