Re: “Voting Veracity

Mr. Brakey, nothing is wrong with the picture. It is the perfect textbook case of how crooks operate. And they do it again, and again, and again because they are never held accountable. Yet, we don't have any money for health care, people are living in poverty without money to even eat, jobs are scarce...yet the richer keep getting richer.

Re: “Voting Veracity

Hmm. Let's get this straight. Pima County, per their attorneys, only were concerned about 1) keeping the ballots secure and 2) saving us money. Yet, they have, with their cohort Terry Goddard, lost 44% of the poll tapes (so much for security) AND have cost the taxpayers here over a million dollars ($400K+ to Risner alone).

Gee, thanks Pima County. The way you manage our money and voting security makes me want to vote Mickey Mouse in office.

Crooks the bone.

And the RTA folks are now saying they are only going to give us 25% of what we paid for with that huge tax increase. Just as predicted, just another multi-billion dollar scam against tax payers to further enrich some corrupt rich corporate jerks.

Re: “Endorsements

Rodney Glassman makes me want to vomit. What a slippery politician if ever there was one! I would vote McPain or JD Crookster before Glassman. Can't get a straight answer from him on ANY issue. When I first met him, I thought I might vote for him. Until I actually started asking him questions that is. Democrats should be ashamed to have him as a candidate, especially since he is really a Republican. Might as well vote for the real republicans.

I am really not impressed with the lot of candidates running in any party. I do like Pat Fleming and Mohur Sidwa has been impressive. If she works as hard in the legislature as she has on her campaign, she deserves to win. The only really strong candidate I can give an enthusiastic endorsement to is Vince Rabago. He did a good job as the Chairman of the Democratic Party in Tucson and since he is no longer in that job, the local party has really gone downhill. I met him a few years ago, and he struck me as an honest and hard-working person. I never heard a bad thing about him over the years. The Phoenix woman, Felicia, has an impressive resume too, but some of the groups backing her make me think she will be another sell-out to the corporate interests over the people. We have had enough of that. My head and my heart go with Vince Ragago.

Re: “Ahead of Its Time

Seriously? A perfectionist? That is why the people were sprayed with bullets in the face and the "good guys" never got so much as a scratch while the bad guys were dead in one hit? There was no explanation of this. Even as a dream it made no sense from the explantion of people feeling it, thinking it, experiencing it as real...especially the ones who didn't yet know they were in a dream, yet if they would experience it as "real", certainly being sprayed with gunfire would have caused flesh penetration, death, etc.

There we so many logic flaws in it. For a guy who did the brilliant Memento, I was disappointed in Inception. Granted, it was better than many movies over the past few months, but a disappointment from what I expected. It copied a lot from Total Recall and The Matrix, wasted a lot of time on repeated scenes of the dead wife (we already got the message).

They did spend a lot of time explaining, which they really didn't need to. It was pretty easy to follow...unlike Memento which really made you think, was confusing, etc.

I did like the ending, mainly because people were debating did it mean he chose her reality or the real reality...it left questions there which is always fun, and I left with a totally different impression of the ending than the rest of my party.

Overall, it was a fairly good movie, but far from Nolan's best work and tons of flaws in it.

Re: “Missing Poll Tapes

At this point, I am questioning why to even bother to vote? We have people in the Pima County elections department admitting they broke the law by: 1) actively printing summary reports prior to the close of the election 2) Open MS Access book during the live election (illegal to use Access during the election from what John Brakey is saying) 3) Buying a crop scanner used to hack elections and admitting it (but saying it was to "test" to see how to "prevent" such hacking.

Then we see a signed affidavit admitting to criminal activity and a character assassination in the media of the person who came forward, a county Board of Supervisors that, with the exception of Ray Carroll did everything in their power to prevent citizen transparency, and then Atty. General Goddard sweeping into Pima on secret order to get the proof and hiding it away in Maricopa, tons of poll tapes missing from precincts so we can't even count on the actual ballots being the REAL ones...

When Goddard loses his race and we see some of the elections department people in jail, then I will feel safer voting again. Seriously, how can Goddard expect me to vote for him when he is the highest legal officer in the state and does NOTHING to protect my right to vote and have my vote counted as intended? This is always about money and it makes me wonder whose pockets Goddard is in. Brewer is no gift to the citizen's rights either, so either way if we vote for an R or a D we are scr@#@d! I will have to find out what third party candidates are running. Of course, it doesn't matter. If they can steal an RTA election to determine the outcome, they can easily steal the governor's race.

Re: “Open and Shut

I stopped donating when Mary Jo took over. After she killed all those cats, that was the end of the road for me. I knew the director before her, and really like her. I also knew many of the hard working volunteers. I was just a donor, but was looking to get more involved when Mary Jo took over. Instead, they lost all my support.
