Re: “Cinema Clips: Independence Day: Resurgence

You really raved about the movie Swiss Army Man because it had lots of farts and hard-ons. This movie did not have farts and hard-ons so understandably you didn't like it, (although you did manage to squeeze a fart comment out in this review). I have to agree with Jimmy Z. above. It's not Academy Award material but it was a decent action-packed summer get-out-of-the-heat-for-two-hours sorta film. And sometimes that's what I want to watch.

Re: “In Defense of Marijuana: Parents of Medical Weed Patient in Prison Fear for His Life

"Congratulations jury, you really made a difference in society by sending a healthy, nonviolent, work-eager young man to prison. I'm sure you all are sleeping through the night, enjoying your families and friends with the comfort of the eternally-taken-for-granted freedom. You've shattered a family that did not deserve it. It's repugnant."

What an ignorant and offensive comment. As one who has sat on a jury (obviously you have not), we were tasked with determining guilty or not guilty on specific charges. There was no "freestyling" on the charges. We did not take our duties lightly and many of us asked questions during the trial. Unanimously the individual was found guilty, but the judge was also advised that we recommended punishment on the lighter end of the spectrum.

Blame his woes on shitty laws, lying cops and/or a screwed up justice system. Don't blame the jury for doing their job as directed by the courts.

Re: “The Skinny

"She failed to send out a publicity pamphlet to an estimated 400,000 voters in counties outside of Pima and Maricopa."

Neither my wife nor I (in Tucson) received any info regarding the two issues. Indeed, I had to call to find out where our polling location was.

Re: “Danehy

I can highly recommend a new biography on Meagher called, "The Immortal Irishman-The Irish Revolutionary who became an American Hero" by National Book Club Award winner Timothy Egan. Egan spoke about his book at the recent Festival of Books and I couldn't not buy it.

Re: “Minimum Wage Hikes, Ballot Measures, Doug Ducey and the Restaurant and Hospitality Association

I just love it when "pro-life" supporters are actually against supporting life after a baby is born. How cute is it that they oppose helping those very children and poor people by cutting welfare programs, fighting against The Affordable Care Act and here in Arizona doing their darndest to cheat kids out of their education? Here's the funniest part...many of them call themselves christian! Ha, ha, ha!

Re: “The Skinny

Am I suppose to be impressed that out-of-state big money interests are flooding the coffers of puppet McSally so they can pull her strings and do their bidding? All the more reason for Arizonans to support Victoria Steele.

Re: “The Birth of a Trump Nation

Azpaul in his uninformed comment above assumes the political parties were static over time which of course is not true.

During the 1860's the mostly Northern States Republicans championed an expansion of Federal power, protection of African- Americans and social justice while the Southern States Democrats were against it. By FDR's Democratic presidency during the depression, he won reelection based on the highly progressive New Deal and trounced Alf Langdon (Republican who opposed these ideas) in a landslide. The New Deal was a huge set of Federal programs that included founding pension and welfare programs, regulating financial institutions and developing infrastructure.

For many reasons there was a flip-flop in the political parties' platforms over time. Azpaul in his deep ignorance would be damn lucky to attain the advanced level of "stupidity" of the writer.
