Said like a true confusionist. Hillary has dedicated her life to public service? She has dedicated her life to her bank account from cattle futures to the Clinton Foundation. She consistently lies and cheats. Without repurcussion.
But hey, she's a woman. Maybe next time we can raise our standards but for now we will drag the bottom of the barrel. If she wins can she avoid prosecution for four years? Hard to say.
The current members of the Commission ran on the slogan, "Do YOU want to pay HIGHER utility bills?" Evidently a vote for them meant a vote "YES!". Arizona has the best politicians money can buy.
Prop 205: The Regulation and Taxation of Marijuana Act SHOULD BE REJECTED by the Voters of Arizona!
The "Medical Marijuana" of today is NOT like the Marijuana used in the 70's and 80's. Through Artificial Selection Experiments, strains of Marijuana have been developed by the Marijuana Drug Industry that substantially increase the potency of the Drug. As such, its' use poses serious potential consequences.
While this Drug is effective in treating some medical conditions; Muscle spasms caused by multiple sclerosis, Nausea from cancer chemotherapy, Poor appetite and weight loss caused by chronic illness, such as HIV, or nerve pain, Seizure disorders (childhood epilepsy), and Crohn's disease. Purified extracts from whole-plant marijuana can slow the growth of cancer cells from one of the most serious types of brain tumors.
Research in mice showed that treatment with purified extracts of THC and CBD, when used with radiation, increased the cancer-killing effects of the radiation (Scott KA, Dalgleish AG, Liu WM. The combination of cannabidiol and ?9-tetrahydrocannabinol enhances the anticancer effects of radiation in an orthotopic murine glioma model. Mol Cancer Ther. 2014;13(12):2955-67.)
Scientists are also conducting preclinical and clinical trials with marijuana and its extracts to treat numerous diseases and conditions, such as the following:
1. Autoimmune diseases (diseases that weaken the immune system): HIV/AIDS, multiple sclerosis (MS), which causes gradual loss of muscle control
2. Alzheimer’s disease, which causes loss of brain function, affecting memory, thinking, and behavior
6.Substance use disorders
The FDA has not recognized or approved the marijuana plant as medicine.
The Medical Marijuana Program in Arizona is a Big-Money-Making SCAM supported by the Marijuana Drug Industry and their Supporters in the Arizona Legislature!
Marijuana use for Medical purpose should be supported by Scientific evidence, including Clinical Trials, and regulated by the FDA; closely monitored by the tending Physician and State Department of Health."Medical Marijuana" should be available by Prescription only (in a Pharmacy) issued by a License Physician.
Congress should amend the Controlled Substances Act of 1970: Controlled Substances Act (CSA) (21 U.S.C. § 811). making Marijuana available for Medical Treatment.
The major consumers of this Drug, if legalized for so-called recreational purposes, will be the younger generation; destroying the very fabric/future of our Democracy.
This Drug should NOT be legalized for recreational purposes!!!
Very proud to have the endorsement of the Tucson Weekly. I have worked hard to remove partisanship from this election and reach out to ALL people of Pima County. Let's work together to move our County and our Sheriffs Department forward.
6th poorest city in the country and DAMN proud of it! Keep the poverty coming! Make Arizona Mexico Again!
You had me at "Asshat kind of girl"- thank you for your advocacy. You and Emory are both amazing humans.
Please quote the exact sentence in any of my posts where I used the word "troll."
Also, it's "you're," not "your."
Politicians need New Age music most of all; opens the mind, chills you out. Listen to Shadowfax, Secret Garden, Fiona Joy, Al Conti, Lawrence Blatt... and then tell me it's not beautiful, hi-quality music.
If you think this is not also standard operating procedure for the Democratic Party machine in Southern Arizona, you are ill-informed. Or if you think that having the right laws on the books will prevent malfeasance -- wrong again.
Stuck between a rock and several hard places here in Southern Arizona: malfeasant Republicans in the Phoenix legislature cutting funding and dismantling the public sector, malfeasant Democrats in various City and County offices managing local institutions poorly, bad or insufficient laws on the books at the state level, and, where we have good laws that were passed in the hope of protecting citizens from abuse, the enforcement mechanisms are insufficient and ineffective.
What can help, David, is NON-PARTISAN commentary that calls the problems for what they are and admits that it's dishonesty and abuse of public office that we need to combat, not THE REPUBLICANS or THE DEMOCRATS. People in both parties are guilty of it and commentary that calls it out in one party but not in the other muddies the water and obscures both the real source of the problem and the bi-partisan mode of operation needed to fix it.
Hillary Clinton is the most prepared, qualified person for president in a long, long time. She's not perfect-- who is? Everyone running for anything has a few skeletons in the closet.
I have 4 students in my fourth grade math class with an achievement level at the first percentile, meaning that they were not able to find a single math problem that they could successfully solve on the benchmark exam. My whole class averaged the 9th percentile.
In the first three days of this week, the class successfully moved through 65 levels of a popular math software product. It is an all minority, all poverty classroom. As with Safiers example above, I have managed the class with several scientific principles, the major being that students should experiences 9 successes for every one failure. As the students have experienced success, they have become better and better at math.
The huge shortfall of the common core standards is that they have resulted in most students being drowned in failure because they are more than two educational years below the standards.
We can see it in the national test scores. Math went down for the first time ever and reading did not improve. New standards can't solve this problem- there will still be a huge disconnect for most students.
High expectations for students should be that they do 200 math problems a day and get 180 of them correct. On the typical day, at risk students are doing less than 10 problems and getting most of them wrong.
I'm not sure how you misread my comment but I stated it as though there are all different kinds of problems people have that we do not see visually. I did not comment on asking parents "what is wrong with them?" My comment was more of a "walk a mile in my shoes" thought for people before they get judgemental.
Handicapped parking permits and plates are for the designated use of the actual handicapped person and/or their caretaker(s). They are not meant for able-bodied family members and friends to use for their convenience. Having said this, there are also many disabilities that do not show such as coronary and pulmonary conditions and diseases that limit people’s mobility, so that sometimes it may appear someone is able bodied when they are not. As for vandalism and slicing tires in anger – what kind of example is that to show our children?
I'm so sorry about citing the beautiful young girl as "Caroline". Didn't pay enough attention to the writing, but that smile is AWESOME!
It's a long journey. As humans, we have never accepted those with disabilities. We've come a long way. Not far enough. And the journey will not stop. Good luck, Caroline is BEAUTIFUL!!
First things first - thanks so much for taking time out of your day to not only read my article, but also comment! Much appreciated, dear!
Secondly, Donald Trump? Oh honey...not even close. But I suppose it's really up to the reader to take it however they take it. But I do have a question...what exactly is the lot in life that makes it okay for an adult to ask a parent, in front of their child, what's wrong with them?
You're so welcome Lynnetra! Thanks for always being an incredible supporter of my work!
Bad ice cream. Bad Gov'nr
I love everything you write! You educate as well as speak your mind...Love it and thank you. You answered a couple questions that I actually had in my head. Thank again and keep up the good work.
