Are you saying that Obama did not have loyalties to Kenya?

Just like Obama was a Communist Kenyan. It's always easy to see nefarious motivations in those you disagree with.

Looks like the tin foil hats have moved to the other's heads. The comment above was exactly the same about Obama. Nothing is ever as bad, or good, as we think it is. I am going to enjoy the show, and stay out of the way.

The longer people, especially the media, focus on the President and what he says -- whether in public, in the press or during his frequent Twitter tirades -- the more time those actually running things behind the scene will have to do irreparable damage to the United States and its people.

If you haven't figured it out by now, the President said and did whatever he needed to get elected. Now that it is painfully obvious that making good on his promises will be another exercise in obfuscating language, alternative facts and post-truth rhetoric the media and the people need to focus on what he is actually doing.

Hint: he's not doing much other than letting others systematically tear down and remove the checks and balances that used to keep the government from figuratively and actually destroying Americans lives.

As nationalism sweeps the globe here and abroad, conditions for another World War are quickly taking shape both geo-politically and economically. They say the price of freedom is vigilance, but right now this country's leaders are drunk with power, flying down the road of an uncertain future, pedal to the metal, conspiracy radio blaring and smashing every mailbox along the way, especially those filled with rules, regulations, laws and copies of the United States Constitution.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

It was such a pleasure to work with Rock and his side-kick Fernando. We LOVE "our" new mural and so do our customers!
Thanks Rock, I'll always be thankful we met.

On the subject of "this is what you need to say to win" and that-thing-that-you-need-to-say-to-win having zero truth value, I wonder what David thinks of the following statements:

"Rachael Sedgwick is a white supremacist."

"The new TUSD Board majority wanted to fire Sanchez because he was a Hispanic."

It will never cease to amaze me how relentlessly David Safier delights in occupying himself with pitching his judgmental, holier-than-thou stones through the walls of the glass house house he and his friends live in.

No need to respond to questions in the comment streams, David. We know it's beneath you.

(Or is it, perhaps, above him?)

Re: “Advice on Welcoming Immigrants, From SXSW

Donna,

I never talked about race in my post at all. I talked about immigration. Immigrants are not a race!

Your ignorance is either genuine or more likely it's representative of your own sinister motives for posting here.

This is a blog post about immigration. If you want an ephemeral platform to discuss urban density and resource usage you should try to find a blog on that topic, maybe in the process you will read some of the litany of research that shows you are wrong.

Good day.

David that's the first time I have seen anybody accuse you of being too clever. Even if it was you that did it. I think it's a first. Keep plugging away little buddy.

Re: “Talking Freedom of the Press with Journalists Maureen Dowd, Joe Conason and Evan Thomas

Agree - make the festival at least one day longer, and consider using Centennial Hall once each day for big headliners - like Maureen Dowd on Saturday. 600 got in, at least 400 standing in line without tickets didn't. The Hall holds 2400 - easily that number might have attended if they'd known they'd get a seat.

I would say the average age 62 those pasty white gov employee retiree. Don't seem like a market force of literary power there. Better luck next year more area so the toddlers and arm banded masked protester can get in.

Re: “Advice on Welcoming Immigrants, From SXSW

That is ridiculous Mr Bean. Density of population puts extreme strains on utilities such as electrical power grids, water and sewer supply lines and roads. Coal fired plants are the result of trying to continue to increase production as need expands.

How and why did you jump from that discussion to race? My post refers to people. Any and all people.

Re: “Advice on Welcoming Immigrants, From SXSW

Donna,

Densely populated urban areas use less resources per person than suburbs or rural areas, sorry.

Migrant labor is needed in this country as long as we want to continue having access to affordable produce and meat. Immigrants, no matter what their status, commit crimes at lower rates than the rest of the population. Illegal immigrants put more money into the system through taxes then they take out in services. THESE ARE ALL FACTS and many of them were discovered by the State of Texas under Republican leadership when they were trying to prove that illegal immigration was harmful, turns out they proved the opposite! Hahahah

I can understand why people are opposed to immigration. Fear seems to permeate through societies whenever they are faced with new cultures and languages. Sometimes that fear turns into hate. I think most opponents of immigrants in this country are fearful, not hateful. But the hateful ones sure get to drive the narrative and the fearful ones follow....

Re: “Streets of This Town: Kick Back

The commenters are missing something here. It's a very good photo: evocative, well composed, just the right tonal range for the subject matter. You can find a similar scene in cities anywhere in the country, but it's tough to make it work as a photo. Brian nailed it accurately and esthetically.

Liberal environmental organizations have always promoted the fact that concentrations of population are extremely harmful to local resources.

When will they speak up?

When our grandchildren live in a country with a population is 1 billion people in a few decades (as predicted by U.S. census under current high immigration scenario) I'm sure they will thank these friendly mayors.

Re: “Streets of This Town: Kick Back

But hey, there is a "surplus" for all employee's. Despite police Chief screaming for help as he cannot protect the general public, due to poor fleeted vehicles with broken, non operational lights, cannot keep up with chasing criminals before the cars break down..... Very beautiful town. Terrible irresponsible management of it.

But, hey, we are a "sanctuary city", something must be sacrificed not to enforce law against the "illegal immigrant". So, let it be the productive 78 yr old lady demonstrators, who, sacrifice beating by TPD, when, aggressively pointing fingers at them. Yep, says a lot of this beautiful lovely, "sanctuary".
