Re: “Off-The-Charts Poor

Yo, 'ocotillo,' Maricopa County has been following policies that are closer to free markets by than that of Pima County and they are one of the fasted growing areas in the country.
As for Tucson's city leaders:
'What's important is that young professionals are able to bicycle to work. That's what's what they are looking for in a community after college,' said no one with a brain, ever. "Detroit of the Desert" have never been more true than it is today in Pima County after decades of one (Democrat) party rule.

Re: “We Need to Do Something to Keep Brewer Away From Obama

0bama and Brewer deserve each other. Wouldn't it be great if they both resigned and ran off to Reno together? Hhhhmmm...that would leave the country in the hands of not just another idiot, but a drunk idiot. Although, Joe would be hard pressed to do worse.

Re: “Media Watch

I read how most of the San Diego media knew all about Mayor Filthy Filner's habit of sexual harassment (that actually meets the definition of sexual assault) and did not report on it due to fear of reprisal and hurting like minded political beliefs. This begs the question as to what dirty deeds of powerful local lib-Dem pols do the Tucson media know all about and won't report?

Re: “Danehy

Somewhere between 40-50% of all firearm deaths are by suicide. This is homicide of the self, however, is it truly accurate to include these deaths? It would be if the ownership of a firearm was highly correlated with the rate of suicide (it is not). So, Tom's mathematical argument takes a massive 40-50% hit (Oops! That could be construed as violent imagery! Remember 23 months ago when all the media hacks had their knickers in a twist over any perceived violent word/picture imagery? Seems the average American did't fall for that Shinola argument and it died without a wimper -OOOOooo, there I go again with the violent imagery).

Re: Tom's argument against "Guns provide us with protection from a tyrannical government."
Shockingly, a long time sports coach for young adults, Tom argued against the ability of an outclassed, out experienced and out-equipped team having the ability to beat a superior team. The history of warfare and revolution, as well as the history of human sport, is replete with examples of the "inferior" besting the "superior," even when the betting odds were long.

Blah, blah, blah... I could continue picking apart Tom's argument, however, it has become boring as, ah...well, shooting fish in a barrel.
OOOOOOooooo! For the few lefties that believe in hell, they surely are thinking I'm going to hell for that last comment. For the easily bunched panties crowd, that was NOT a threat against anyone. It is a long used idiom. Geez, the disclaimers one has to write when dealing with the 21st century sensitive set.

Re: “Take This for What You Will: Brewer Endorses Paton

Dan - You are correct in writing that you live in an insular world, 'cept to say your world isn't "mildly" insulated. Being a lib in Pima County is as insulated to the rest of the average folk in Arizona as a straightjacket wearing customer at the Rubber Room Inn to those on the outside. Governor Brewer handily beat her erstwhile competitor (55% - 42%) in what can only be described as an "good 'ole fashioned "*ss kick'n."
Jonathan Paton has an excellent record as a AZ State Representative and State Senator and will make a terrific US Representative. His service in the US Army speaks volumes about his dedication our country and Arizona. Governor Brewer obviously understands these facts and brings her considerable popularity in her endorsement of Jonathan. Try as you might to help the liberal candidates against Jonathan, I have no doubt the good voters in CD1 will prevail.
