Re: “Pima County Supervisor Ally Miller's Paving Project Benefited Political Ally, Campaign Contributors

How does this story jive with the previous report of retaliation for Ally's criticism of the county?

Why the absence of this angle?

Re: “Heavy Marijuana Use Causes Memory Issues and Abnormal Brain Structure Among Teens, Study Says

The benefits of moderate use greatly outweigh the risks indicated in this one study. Just for cancer prevention alone, the level of danger from using marijuana is dwarfed by the dangerous side effects from most prescription drugs. Sources:

Re: “Let's Replace The Stolen Kennedy Bust with Obama's Head

Judging the order of comments in this post, Dan Gibson identifies the "kook" as "clear mind" for his comment:

"Obama is destroying this country and you cheerlead? Shame on you for being so ignorant"

Friends report to me from Tucson by identifying their subject matter as originating from the land of "dumb" and "dumber". Maybe I weigh in from time to time because I'm not so jaded. Or maybe Tucson has rubbed off on me after all the years wasted in this town.

What Obama-linked activity destroys this country? What is it that people seem ignorant about?

NDAA indefinite detention.

Drone assassinations of American citizens without due process.

Drone attacks of citizens in Yemen, Somolia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Libya.

An unprecedented level of whistleblower retaliation.

Forcing citizens to buy health insurance through the IRS.

Making taxpayers bail out insolvent banks.

Prison for water harvesting.

Destruction of small farms.

TSA gropings and molestation.

Kidnapping of veterans for their "patriotic" facebook posts.

False arrest of occupy activists for their association with "anarchists".

The raid and subsequent destruction of state sanctioned medical marijuana facilities in Oakland and elsewhere.

Restricting gun ownership for veterans.

Allowing wanton destruction of the environment in exchange for paltry fines (BP).

Allowing BP to enforce illegal curfews on public beaches.

Allowing banksters to destroy the economy and commit fraud with impunity.

Allowing a settlement for deficient mortgage contracts.

Engaging the U.S. through NATO in two illegal wars of "humanitarian plunder".

Turning a blind eye to Sheriff Joe Arpaio's civil rights abuses.

Turning a blind eye to the Bush administration's war crimes, torture and rendition.

Continued waterboarding in Libya.

Allowing CIA contractors to wantonly assassinate citizens in exchange for blood money in Pakistan
(and lying to the world about Raymond Davis's diplomatic status).

Executive power grabs through orders claiming federal ownership of everyone's resources whenever
the fed's declare a circumstance to be a national emergency.

Allowing increased surveillance of U.S. citizens via trapwire, which includes extraneous use of red light cameras.

Restricting visa's for citizens behind on their taxes.

Escalation and continued presence in two illegal wars: Afghanistan and Iraq.

Setting up an unconstitutional database of citizens through the biometric retina scans, fingerprints and photographs with no justification or probable cause. (HIIDE database system).

Re: “El Rio Coalition II Invite to Sunday Community Forum

Oh. And let's get those jobs from "Grand Canyon University" in exchange for tens of millions of dollars of public resources. Brilliant.
