Re: “The Fight to Save Oak Flat Comes to Tucson

Here is a link to a photo essay about a protest about McCain's and his betrayal of Arizona at Flake's office in Tucson earlier this year: http://ricardosmall.smugmug.com/PROTEST/Oa…. Both of Arizona's U.S. senators do NOT represent people. They only represent the oligarchy who pays them to. They both should be voted out of office at the earliest possible election.

Far more concerning is Schuster's use of an answering machine. What is this, 2002? Who the hell uses an answering machine any more? Can you even buy them?

Re: “Undocumented Parents Protest Block to Obama's DAPA Program on Day They Were Supposed to Start Applying

My mother became a U.S. citizen 30 years ago. Myself was born in AZ.36 years ago. So am I an "anchor baby"? That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard. We need to stop making excuses for why Mexicans can't become legally documented upstanding citizens.

Wow...his FB page indeed says a bunch. Talks of being drunk and smoking trees all while posting pic's of 'barely' legal girls while barely containing himself. Another top-notch Tucson citizen behind bars.

Re: “Editor's Note

Hi, North! There was no episode of Zona Politics on the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, and it sounds like that's what you're looking for. Here 's today's episode, in case you missed it.

Re: “Media Watch

I recognize it's a mistake to approach this in a logical manner, but for a group that talks about the money, and talks about how amazing PGU is, they really spend a great deal of time trashing other sites. If they're so good, why bother? Seems an odd approach, this constant self-aggrandizing superiority.

What's the point?

To the best of my knowledge, no other site has spent the time attacking its competition to the level that PGU has attacked others. If PGU is so in front of all the rest, so dominant, so superior, then why the wasted energy?

Perhaps it isn't what it claims. And it knows it. And it knows a lot of others recognize this too. Hence the recent decision to charge for information, which the site bragged about not doing and as mentioned in a post above used as a selling point against the other Wildcat websites.

When you act a certain way things eventually unravel. If you do enough stupid, unethical things people start to notice.

Kevin Spacey isn't the star in this House of Cards. It's the Ace at the top of the deck that has the furthest to fall.

Re: “Arizona Beer House to Bring Craft Beer to Tucson's East Side

Unless you guys plan on having food trucks by every day, I would suggest seriously reconsidering having food in the bar. Perhaps German style bratwurst or similar bar food. It would increase your potential for profits greatly, and people will stay in the bar longer and drink more as a result. I always like having something to munch on when enjoying good craft beer :)

Citing an article from Return of Kings as basis for any discussion involving women is akin to citing the Time Cube for discussions of physics.

"Selective outrage and revisionist history."
Vince,
I could easily say the same for you and David w, and the only thing about which we may ever agree will be to disagree. For me ethics trumps greed, but sadly in our culture greed, money and corporate power too often eclipses ethics and morals. Then often come the regrets.

Re: “Arizona Court of Appeals: Medical Weed Patients Cannot Sell to Other Patients

Simple math stupid . You can't sell medical marijuana if you buy it and try to sell it to another cause it simply cuts out the government on taxes. Your not getting over them with it unless you report it to them.

Re: “Danehy

"So do you feel the same way about George Soros and his money?" You ask...

Absolutely not, and I am not ashamed to admit it. Geo. Soros' is a wealthy man whose voice resonates with intelligent people. Soros doesn't strong arm utilities or brainwash ignorant voters into voting against their best interests based on prejudice, racial bias, and greed. The Koch brothers invest in candidates that will bend to their wishes. How else would someone like Doug Ducey win an election, especially when less than 30% of eligible voters show up? Soros invests in candidates that have ideas of their own based on good economics, science and facts.
For example:
I installed solar panels on my house for three reasons: It is good for the environment and the future of the environment. We live in one of the sunniest parts of the world, and if I live long enough I may do better than break even. The Koch brothers whose wealth is tied up in our country's utilities want to tax residential solar users because the "poor" utility companies are realizing diminished profits. I am no chump, I want an honest pay check for an honest day's work, but I am not greedy. The utilities and the Koch boys should be intelligent enough to have the vision that this type of alternative power is good for everyone including future generations. Greed eclipses better judgement in the case of the Koch brothers and their ilk. While they do so much philanthropic work in their native Kansas, it is self serving and a lot like in a company town ghetto.

Re: “UA/Biosphere 2 Researcher Killed by Drunk Driver

We met Rafe wandering along an obscure coast near San Carlos, Mexico. Our daughters explored tide pools while Rafe showed us snails that dye your skin and described the work that would lead to his book on learning from the octopus. His delight in nature was equaled only by his obvious love for his family. He spoke a lot about his wife and his other daughter and when he would catch up with them. My sister was killed by a drunk driver and as years have rolled by, we have forgotten the man's name. We know he was a human who suffered horribly for his act. He never walked again. He lost his family. All we remember is the love of our sister. I would wish that Rafe's family remember Rafe's love for them. It is as fathomless as the sea. It endures.
