Re: “A Huppenthal/Stormfront Connection? Probably Not, Says Phoenix New Times' Stephen Lemons

Huppenthal has been revealed as a world class jackass and will hopefully leave after a respectable period of time (say next month). Linking him to a white supremacist website based on speculation and inference then weaseling away from that blockbusting libel earns Safier the obligation of apologizing to a jackass. Quite a feat.

Re: “Yahoo! Pits Tucson Against Phoenix For its Sick Pleasure

Fraser can't write a sentence without OBAMA being included in his rants. This is a simple news byte about two neighboring cities. Count on Fraser to disparage the place where he lives. Move your couch potato ass to Phoenix, then.

Re: “Danehy

Sheesh Tom, I' can't really say I was "butt-hurt" about your predictable rant about independents - because I can only guess what you mean by that. (A few weeks ago I dropped the Harry Red Dog moniker because it had become old and irrelevant - please don't take that personally). It hearkened back to an ongoing pissing match in the ADS comments section over the years with another Harry Dog and later stuck as I railed against Rosemont Mine. So, yes, Rick Spanier is Harry Red Dog and Harry Red Dog is Rick Spanier). And I'm still against Rosemont or HudBay or whatever it's going by now.

The sad thing Tom, is that you still just don't get it...and probably never will. If all we had to go by was the behavior of the god fearing purse snatching trogs in Phoenix - sure it would be simple to sympathize and maybe even vote enthusiastically Democrat each election cycle.

But I've lived in Tucson for 22 years and have noticed locally the Democrats can't keep the roads driveable, run a school district and tend to misplace hundreds of millions in taxpayer revenues routinely. All while grinning and scratching their collective butts knowing they can continue doing absolutely anything that strikes their fancies and keep being elected.

So this independent (I can't speak for all independents because they are ...independent) continues to vote in each election as I have for the past 45 years or so. Sometimes I pull the R sometimes the D. Sometimes I like a candidate and sometimes I vote for the less worse candidate or don't pull that lever. I apologize Tom, I know this makes your head hurt but occasionally one or the other party actually runs a better - or less insane -candidate.

Please don't get all butt hurt Tom; gear up for next week's attack on charter schools or another fascinating column about the next great junior high school girls high jump sensation.

Re: “Brooklyn Pizza Company

The crust use to be excellent. Just a few weeks ago, had it delivered to my disappointed! The crust tasted like it had been frozen for a long time. Low Quality Pizza.

Re: “Blue Willow

There is something 'off 'about the food here. I think the ingredients are not of high quality and it sure shows. It's always packed because there isn't any competition in that particular area.

Re: “DREAMers and Driver's Licenses: Candidates for Governor React

Ronni, it is just another magnet that makes illegal aliens think it was acceptable for them to break the law. I am fine with giving "DREAMERS" a chance at being legal residents in this country. They can join the military for at least 4 years. When they get out, they get a probationary legal status for 5 years. If they do not commit any major crimes, they become citizens.

I could compromise and give all DREAMERS that have not committed any major crimes or have been involved in criminal organizations legal status if we make it where they can not sponsor their family members into the country as permanent residents. The DREAMERS would have to either join the military to go to college on their own (non-tax payer funded) dime.

If Congress signed a law that gave these illegal aliens legal status, with an overall immigration reform bill, that is one thing. Brewer would not have any legal reason to not give them licenses. However, this was a executive decision that further hurt out immigration system. These executive actions are exactly why we have this crisis on the border right now.

Re: “A Huppenthal/Stormfront Connection? Probably Not, Says Phoenix New Times' Stephen Lemons

I never followed this Huppenthal character because I really don't care about the state of Arizona education. And he probably is a fool of some sort.
But you should read what you have just written here.
"...I asked whether"..."....was based on speculation and inference"....."...but I wasn't willing to discount the possibility"...and..."..This matter is put to rest unless more information comes out at a later time."
I am not sure who is the bigger fool here. You or Huppenthal. Looks like you never had any evidence. If this was a court of law you would be toast. Throw the mud and see what sticks.

Re: “Danehy


If this isn't one of the most irrelevant, wandering, pointless pieces ever published in the history columns ... please tell us what is.

Seriously, with all of the issues/problems this town is facing, you continue to set a new (low) standard for writing about all things entirely useless and totally worthless.

Why are you still employed?

Re: “Waiting for Superman

According to a reliable source, the reason these folks were fired was because they were not doing their jobs and taking unauthorized time off. Some have even been instrumental in attempting to sabotage programs that the Executive Director was trying to implement. I have observed that they are splinter groups within our community that are at odds with one another and do not always cooperate for the community good. I feel that the decision to close Wingspan was a hasty decision and not giving the community the opportunity to respond in Wingspan's support is appalling.

Fraser - yes, it's nice to be in a place that understands that these are children, far away from home, who could really use some human decency right now.

Re: “Troop Support

Barber said the decision "allows the beliefs of corporations to trample the rights of employees, especially the rights of women. All employees—men and women—must be free to make their own health care choices with their doctors and without interference from their employer. I will continue fighting to protect the right of all women to make their own health care decisions."

How is this LIE still being passed around? The SCOTUS decision on the Hobby Lobby case does NOT prevent women from making health choices at all; the decision simply allows corporations to decide not to pay for abortion-inducing drugs. That's it. Women still have access to whatever contraceptions they want. It's just that they will have to pay for certain ones out of their own pocket. That's not restricting access; that's personal responsibility. BTW, Mr. Barber, if employees really could make health-care decisions without interference from the employer, we wouldn't be concerned about what the insurance company would pay for and what the co-pay is and what the deductible is.

Re: “Media Watch

You guys dumped Tim Vanderpool?? That's disapponting.

This equally sucks about what happened to Villareal, but that's a very difficult, ticky line. Talented, no doubt, but would there be any other positions for him to take up? (If the Star is hiring on at the same time as dumping Villareal, thhat is very cruel.) It appears the AZDS dropped his beat. The fact he survived the loss of being the movie reviewer and was able to keep a role at the Star is admirable, but he also ended up a GA reporter in a risky position because of it.
