Re: “The Skinny

I used to admire Senator McCain, both for his service and for his willingness to stand apart from party for the good of the nation. That McCain died during his presidential campaign. Now, he's a sad, pathetic shadow of himself and we need to retire him to Sun City.

Re: “The Skinny

Remember the good old days, when being stupid or crazy generally disqualified you from elected office?

Re: “Danehy

Now imagine that the service dog is a bulldog and it's in the lap of the guy sitting next to you on a plane. You are allergic to dogs. When you ask the flight attendant for assistance, she invites you to get off the plane. When you complain to the airlines, they tell you the FAA mandates access. The airline has no policy to segregate service animals so you can assure that you are not flying next to one.

Re: “Bull Session

Pima Mujer, there is an interesting crisis brewing in the school suit. The parties are now in "settlement" talks. If they fail to settle and the judge enters a final judgment, who is going to enforce that judgment? The sheriff normally does that, but in this case, we're talking about Joe Arpaio, who is not likely to do so. How does a state court force the state to obey a court order without the assistance of the designated police power? Interesting question (one that goes all the way back to a case called Marbury v. Madison!) We could be facing a breakdown of the rule of law in Arizona over this case.

Re: “The Skinny

What's interesting about the lack of detail both in Ducey's campaign rhetoric and in his State of the State address? He was State Treasurer for four years! If four years did not give him the necessary insight into the budget and state operations, what will? Mr. Business either can't read a spreadsheet or doesn't want to.

Re: “Growing Their Own

Is this paid advertising? Sure reads like it.

Re: “Guest Commentary

Fraser, you are clearly not an attorney so you may not know that even foreign nationals who enter this country illegally have legal rights. Among those rights is the right to claim refugee status. Congress created an expedited return policy for immigrants who are citizens of contiguous nations: Canada and Mexico. This was an alteration of the policy that applies to other nations' citizens. They may all be the same to you ("peons") but under the laws and Constitution of the United States, which conservatives like to brandish like a weapon but rarely actually read, these people do indeed have legal rights. The Tea Party-controlled House of Representatives has refused to alter the law to implement expedited return, and also refused (so far) to fund the processes needed to expedite their hearings and pay for their care. I'm sure you would be happy to have them chained together and marched into the desert to meet their fate, but at least so far we haven't implemented a death penalty for undocumented immigration and even if we did THEY WOULD STILL HAVE LEGAL RIGHTS. Get it? You might read up on this and educate yourself. http://www.vox.com/2014/6/16/5813406/expla…
