I sold out and left Tucson for Flagstaff in mid 2010. But my heart is still in the Sonoran Desert. I'm currently trying to sell…
Where the hell are Scully & Mulder when you need them?
"And only one arrest came of the whole night, a single marijuana possession charge."
Hellyeah baby! My tax dollars at work!
To all of the wingnut clowns who think that just because you click the like means your winning: bumping the votes by changing your IP address doesn't count, and neither does the perceived popularity online of a given view on this subject. What matters are the facts, and Mari Herreras did a great job at documenting them. You right wing lunes who obsess over imaginary conspiracies involving La Raza never cease to amaze me with your ability to conjure up total utter bullshit out of your asses. I attended a few after school meetings of my school's chapter in my senior year; all that was discussed was how to get involved in making the community a better and safer place. Here is a little fun fact for you; I'm a white kid who attended a mostly Latino charter school, and I took a semester each of Chicano Cultural Studies, Chicano Literature, and Cultural Tolerance/Bigotry Awareness. Did it make me loath myself and turn me into a "La Raza" activist? No, dipshits, all it did was broaden my horizons, and taught me a lot about a culture that I wasn't raised in. I'm a more empathetic, educated, and wise human being as result of that, and I eternally grateful that it was a part of my school's curriculum.
Furthermore the cultural bigotry and racism of Bob Cap is truly a gem. It would be funny except for the fact that he actually is convinced that he is right.
It's been forever since I've followed Bitcoins, but I'm pretty sure the currency cannot have a central controlling bank by design (or flaw depending on your point of view). While the price was relatively stable when they first came out, a few years ago you were hearing about constant runs and collapses when several of the main exchange sites were hacked. Digital currency is something that is certainly worth studying further, but I'm doubtful that Bitcoins will ever get wide acceptance as a model; they are far too decentralized for serious investors, and as the incidents at the Mt. Grox and other sites showed: they can be highly unstable and subject to outside interference.
Man if I had known this was the case I would have snapped a picture of my mail-in ballot before I handed it over in person today, along with a sticky note that said something along the lines of "Fuck you Ken Bennett, I DO WHAT I WANT!" Any resulting criminal prosecution, while ugly, would theoretically be hilarious.
I miss DiGiovanna! While I didn't always agree with him, I always found his opinions on films insightful and (usually) thought provoking!
I was very pleased by this news! But I'll be honest, I'm really frightened of the inevitable SCOTUS appeal that is coming. I can only hope that we catch Justice Kennedy on a good day. I almost feel sorry for him in this matter, because he is in an unenviable dammed if you do, dammed if you don't position with this. No matter what, a powerful political faction is going to hate his decision and blame him for their loss.
