Not crazy about "bio's" ...too self absorbing, but I'll try. I'm a long time Tucson male that loves his town, reading the "Weekly", and enjoys…
Congrats to Tucson and Mike Feder for getting AAA bseball back. I'm really happy to hear it and hope Tucson baseball fans support San Diego's AAA club. It's certainly better than no baseball at all. Mike Feder will do a great job as GM. Best of luck for a successful campaign.
Aren't we doing exactly what we're trying not to do anymore? Left accuses right; right accuses left...stop already. I recently moved to Chicago after living in Tucson for 33 years. I followed the events right up to the memorial last night. I'm so very proud of the way the Tucson community has had an outpouring of unity. Dont let it stop in this thread.
We all need time to heal. Peace people...
I'm so on the fence about Prop 100. I've read comments, articles, listened to viewpoints from editorials, bloggers etc. I wish I was as sure as some of you, but I'm just not. On one hand, I don't want to enable the existing lawmakers to collect more sales tax when I hold them responsible for our current budget crises. They've given me no reason whatsoever to believe they'll be able to manage new tax dollars. On the other hand, should this Prop be voted down, how will we Arizonians be punished for our stance against it? We've heard about deeper cuts in social programs and education. I think it's pretty tacky of lawmakers to attempt to scare voters into Prop 100.
A fine mess we have here. How pathetic is it when our state can't even keep rest stops open? Thanks to the powers that be for forcing voters to make these most difficult decisions. Their incompetency is just stunning, and we have to pay the price. I'll file this away when it's time to vote the lot of them out of office.
In the meantime, I'll continue to keep my eyes and ears open in hopes of making a meaningful vote on this issue.
Target Corp. created this monster themselves...way to go. If they wanted to eliminate "blockers", they should have never created them in the first place, bit then again, who wants a job when there's no chance of advancement?
When people invest 20 years of their working lives in a company, they're entitled to be treated with RESPECT. What Target has done here surprises me not at all. In attempt to squeeze out more corporate profit, they've cemented the already existing belief of profit before people. It's disappointing, but not surprising.
To the poster that believes these employees are "riding the gravy train?" I wonder how you would react if it happened to you...ya, I know, you wouldn't let it happen...good luck with that.
I'm not sure how many Americans Target employs, but it's probably a staggering amount. They provide jobs in an economy where jobs are gold, but this does NOT give them the right to do what they do. We can choose to boycott Target, but it'll be a long hard road before they change their practices.
A shout out to the best pub in Tucson for exposing this story.
