Re: “Editor's Note

This is a very poorly written report on the Sanders speech and campaign. The writer's conclusion that the "voters are against him" is not supported by the article. It seems to be the opinion of the author but we are left to speculate on how it was arrived at.

Re: “Sierra Club Isn't Happy with TEP's Proposal to Reduce Solar Buy-Back Incentive

The concept of a "regulated monopoly" is outmoded at best. Especially when the regulators are indebted to the companies they regulate for campaign contributions. Since we say we are capitalists and believe in competition we should follow the lead of Germany where electric power is now deregulated and consumers have the choice of several electricity providers, that they can switch to whenever they want. This could be part of the reason that a country that gets less than 10% of the sunlight that we do has a much higher rate of home solar power.

Re: “McSally Campaign Moves To Toss Out Pima County Ballots

Gee whiz! Another Republican trying to suppress the vote. How is that news? The Republican Party has disenfranchised millions of Americans throughout the country with their various schemes to keep people that they don't like from voting. Those 40,000 missing registrations in Georgia come to mind but that's just a drop in the bucket compared to the numbers of people who have been kicked off the voting rolls in states like Florida especially.

Don't blame McSally though ... The Koch brothers aren't paying her to lose. Her only option is to win by hook or by crook.

Re: “Danehy

Buh bye Frank. Don't let the door hit you on the way out. I think Mississippi or maybe Louisiana would suit your 18th century agenda.

Re: “McCain: Shutdown Was "One of the More Shameful Chapters of the Years I Have Spent in the Senate"

If the president had agreed to negotiate with the hostage takers this time we would be doing this every couple of months. By calling their bluff he insured that they will think twice before they follow their lunatic fringe over the cliff again. He is to be commended for his resolute stance. BTW, in case the Republicans ever won the presidency again they would have been on the receiving end of the same tactic. The TEA Party extremists aren't smart enough to remember how badly the previous shutdown worked out for them but hopefully they have been taught a lesson that they won't soon forget.

If the had picked off the ACA this time they would have been going after Medicare in January and Social Security the next time until they had rolled back the entire New Deal which is what their corporate sponsors on Wall Street want.

The estimate from S&P is that this shutdown cost us $24 billion. How is that fiscally responsible? Anyone who believes that Republicans care about the deficit is just ignoring the facts. They are only using their feigned concern about the national debt to attack programs that they call "entitlements".

The only winner in this is Ted Cruz who now has a list of 2 million potential donors and has firmly established himself as the head of the wingnut faction of the Republican Party.

Re: “Danehy

Ted Cruz threw the first sandwich in this food fight then ran out of the room. Now that it has turned nasty he's run off to raise his image at the right wing "Values" conference. This is nothing more than the beginning of the Iowa caucuses for him.

Re: “McCain: GOP's Gov't Shutdown Over Obamacare Was a "Fool's Errand"

Talk is cheap, Senator McCain. How did you vote on the Senate bill to extend the debt ceiling today?

    It turns out there's a pretty easy way to beat those darn photo-radar tickets, if you don't mind living underground for a few months
