Re: “Best of TucsonĀ® 2016

Why no Best Bar and Grill? Why no Best Apartments? I do not understand how the categories were picked. For Best Bar and Grill Pick the Trident on Speedway. Robert "Bob" Horvath a Tucson resident since 1973

Re: “Trumpcare Is Dead

With everything that is going on inside and outside the Beltway with this administration, anyone that imagines they will play by any rules -- other than "those that rule make the rules" -- is living in a fool's paradise.

As for so-called Trumpcare, the photo-illustration used with this story is more indicative of what we can expect from those in power right now -- a lot of people dying.

Considering what they are trying to do overall with healthcare, Trumpcare's signature slogan could be "take two bullets to the head and call me in the morning."

Re: “Fun and Games and More

What a clever curator, to have found Sam and Poe in Bisbee! And then to bring them to Tucson! I'm entranced by their work and I've visited the exhibit three times already. I'm planning to bring some friends to share it with.

FLAKE IS A CLOSET DEMOCRAP, he supported everything the traitor that lived in the while house did for 8 years. I hope he looses the next election and a real conservative is elected.

You could wait for the next president, but 7 1/2 years with out health care is a long time.

Re: “Flow Job

Yep, it's always the left. And those damn environmentalists.

Between the two of them, all we get are common sense solutions to the short sided greed that the wrong, oh excuse me, the "right", engage in.

But, hey, we can all eat money and drink oil, right MYOB?

Make sure you're the first in line to drink the tainted water if the Rosemont Greedmongers get their way. Who knows, that action may actually change what you believe to be true.

Either way the left will blame them. It's what they do. We have no money for street maintenance but we will fight business to the very death of our county.

Re: “Crop Circles

So if our aid interests foreign, out of state, or big market big business, Profits are managed by outside interests and the old stand by consulting fees.

So here is the question Whats the point if the dispensary is Veteran, minority, disabled ,woman owned? If they dont control the business profits or management.

What is happening here is these unwitting are being duped. This is quite simple if a person entity controls that is given on a limited lottery basis.

Then the license should go up for reissue on a lottery basis as it did originally. The only thing to be sold is the physical assets not the license. As well as no dispensary can represent no more than 2% of the licenses issued in business license form or as trustees in any other dispensary.

Just another issue for the legislature to address is the non disclosure of nonprofits.

Re: “Flake Loves Him Some Cruzcare

Francis, just in case you hadn't noticed, what you are advocating for is already available in the US. It's called the VA. My family knows all too well what the government can do to our healthcare. The military has been abused for decades, and now you want to include all Americans in the abuse.

Re: “Trumpcare Is Dead

Considering obamacare was given an illegal infusion by obamantion from medicare and the Treasury Department and the fact that it is not self sustaining, I'm sure obamacare only has a little while to live because I'm sure Trump will not do that again. So you never Trumpers it will eventually come down to Trump care or no care. You better pick soon or like Trump says, he will leave it to die.

Re: “Dr. Word Says: Trump Tries His Hand at Poetry

There is some Trump coverage that would be useful: e.g., taking the campaign promises he made that persuaded working class and middle class people to vote for him and investigating -- entirely without ridicule, without snark -- to what exact extent his policies, appointees, and actions in office are delivering on those promises and to what exact extent Trump's administration is actually benefiting Trump's economic class at the expense of labor.

That is the Trump-related reporting that needs to be done. Not Russia conspiracy theories, not "Ivanka took his seat at the G20 summit," not "Kushner looked stupid in his bullet proof vest," not "Melania isn't living at the White House," not "he was childishly delighted with the military displays in Paris" and certainly not "here's a metrical analysis of one of his Tweets." How can the constant mockery and condescension and the inability of distinguished media titans (NYT, WaPo, even WSJ) to report on him using the tone usually reserved for discussions of the U.S. President do anything but confirm in the minds of ordinary people who voted for him that the "mainstream media" doesn't see or understand the economic issues they believed Trump would address? It seems likely that the approach being used will just confirm their belief that the "mainstream media" should not be trusted because they are on a non-stop, mean-spirited, elitist witch hunt.

The economic threats this generation of Americans face are real. The unreported story which, nevertheless, many people who work for a living understand, is that since Bill Clinton's presidency, the Democratic Party has not only failed to better the lot of the working and middle classes, and it has failed to defend them from abuse and damage in debacles caused by failures of regulatory oversight like the housing market crash and the pending student loan debt crisis. A significant percentage of working Americans have home mortgages and a growing number have burdensome, even crushing, student loan debt. 2008-2016 made clear the extent to which elected representatives of the people were failing to put reasonable checks on the financial sector, as Obama presided over an unprecedented bailout of the banking system at taxpayer expense and the Justice Department's failed to prosecute those responsible for -- and profiting from -- the disaster: you know, people like the banking executives who proposed to pay themselves bonuses with taxpayer-funded bailout funds, within a year of crashing our economy with worldwide repurcussions.

In this context, ridiculing Trump won't persuade people who voted for him based on his promises to increase their prosperity, opportunity, and security to jump on the bandwagon pulled by the Democratic donkey who looks more and more like a self-involved JACKASS every day. It will probably just intensify their hatred of "the elites."

Job well done, David Safier et al. Keep up the good work.

Re: “Danehy

Who could possibly disagree that death is a bitch? Consequently, I will simply add:

I see Captain Kirk listening to the Rolling Stones' "2000 Light Years from Home" and/or Pink Floyd's "Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun."
