Kate Clinton has proved for a long time that the things that make gays and lesbians and transgenders laugh and cry have a universal appeal...surprise. Her new show is a hit and benefits the local LGBT community, a great combo.
Enough with the Hitler comparisons. Just work hard to insure this kind of legislator has the influence she deserves--none. Ad hominem arguments just make people mad. Effective opposition keeps them as unimportant as they deserve to be.
Tobin so hates Washington, D.C., that he want you to vote to send him there. If you do, one more irresponsible vote to eliminate effective national government.
Mr. Varney's attack on the City Council reveals why the Tucson Metro Chamber is so irrelevant to the exciting things happening downtown. Typical nonsense from him, but it was fun to see him set-up straw dummies for Steve K. to demolish.
Nancy Young Wright has brought hard work and results to every elective office she has held. I urge folks from all political persuasions to consider electing a person who only cares about doing the best she can for her constituents.
Herrod's agenda has always been hate, and her methods have always included bullying. That she would oppose efforts to stop bullying can hardly be a surprise.
Stephen and Sarah know this problem area well. The suggested strategies are known to work. Steve Cody's comment highlights one of several efforts to remedy the situation. Wingspan, SAAF, and SACASA also know the problems and try to help, and the Alliance Fund provides support to programs through the Queer Youth Initiative to try to spread solutions throughout Southern Arizona.
Senator Aboud is often the only Dem willing to lay some truth on Repub's most outrageous proposals and actually force retreat on some of them. If you think it worthwhile to have a Dem in the legislature who will fight for the most disenfranchised of our citizens, she is the person. Downing and his surrogate "zookeeper", as usual, are whining that Aboud isn't nice to them when they run against her, without laying out any specifics they are willing to be held accountable for. Aboud is smart and tough. We could use a few more Dems like her.
