Re: “Will Hispanics Help Elect Hillary in Arizona? 'Nah,' Said Jan Brewer, 'They don’t get out and vote.’

Arizona has only been a red State this long because of gerrymandering and because of all the snowbirds to stay here 6 months plus a week or two and end up voting in our elections so we end up with disgraceful Republicans like Evan Mecum Fife symington Jan Brewer and the mess that John McCain has become and now we've got our new idiot Governor ice cream who is doing his damnedest to make us look like some backward third-world shit hole. It's about time Arizona went blue again

Ahora vas a ver, bruja! I've voted in every election since I was 18 and my parents followed me as soon as their citizenship was completed. You are so wrong, and we will prove it.

Re: “Local Media Pros Som and Krystin Lisaius Indicted on Drug-Related Child Abuse Charges

Posting it three times isn't going to garner any sympathy. They're both drug addicts and need help. They're lucky their child didn't die. To hear you making excuses for their agregious behavior is pathetic. The 26 yr old "mom" obviously isn't mature enough to realize anything and everything can be transmitted thru breast milk. Her husband, who's almost old enough to be her dad, is more interested in being a big fish in a small pond with his little cokehead blonde by his side. And what exactly have these news reporters done that are "sacrifices to our society"??? They snort coke, look pretty, and report the news. Firefighters, Police Officers, and the Military are the ones "sacrificing for society". Disgusting

Re: “Local Media Pros Som and Krystin Lisaius Indicted on Drug-Related Child Abuse Charges

What they did to their baby was bad enough, but their attorney characterizing them as good parents and the incident as a "mistake" was disgusting. A mistake is when you forget to bring home cereal. A floppy, unresponsive baby is not the result of a mistake. That is abuse. On top of that, to protect themselves they wouldn't cooperate and allow a blood draw on the baby so the doctors could figure out exactly what was going on. Sorry guys, you are supposed to put your child's welfare first, not last.

Re: “Will Hispanics Help Elect Hillary in Arizona? 'Nah,' Said Jan Brewer, 'They don’t get out and vote.’

This neanderthal woman was elected by people who are either in their graves or are wearing their depends now. I mean look at her. She looks like someone from another planet; certainly from another century. Its hard to take someone from "yesteryear" very seriously except to say that what she represents and stands for is something that brings out the worst in human nature.I just isn she'd walk off the stage already. She had her moment! She wasted it.

Re: “UPDATED: What the Hell Happened in the Arizona Primary Yesterday?

Nullify this election in Arizona. Have everyone revote. Please it's not that hard to figure out. This is serious. EVERYONE should be able to vote. It's not about what they are going to do in the future. This is NOW. NOW needs to count NOW. It needs to be corrected NOW.

Re: “Vazquez Departs KVOA; Sources Say She Was Involved in a Shoplifting Incident

Why does everyone think it was OK for her to steal? It's NOT OK!! When you're a "high profile" local celebrity ALL eyes are on you especially when you do something wrong. We wonder why prices are so high at the mall.....WE pay for what is stolen! She must've done it before and thought she could get away with it again. Shame on her!! And you don't need to play the hispanic card Mike412. It's a matter of breaking the law and getting caught, not race. Why should she get special treatment when we sure as hell wouldn't. She had a lapse in her decision to steal....I don't think we need to blame it on an "illness". She did wrong, she got caught, and KVOA let her leave on her own terms. I commend them for that gesture for her 26 years of being a so called upstanding employee.

Re: “Rep. Martha McSally, Former Rep. Ron Barber, and Courage

Thank you for highlighting something we have been saying since the election. I would add that we made it very clear to the Congresswoman when we invited her to our Town Hall last Thursday (5 days before our public event) that we would be happy to work with her on a format for our event that would make her comfortable. Additionally, we are hiring TPD at our own expense to ensure her safety and ours. To keep the event civil and productive, our e-ticket requires that you agree to follow guidelines of civil discourse. We intend to have a list of ground rules on a large screen and 2 moderators that will help to enforce the ground rules. We communicated all of this to her and she hasn't bothered to reply except to call us operatives. If asking her to answer how she is representing us with the opportunity to ask follow up questions pointing out her own contradictory statements is an ambush, then maybe she is too fragile for this job.

Re: “The Folks at Amy's Baking Company In Scottsdale Have Gone Insane [Update: They Were 'Hacked']

They also admitted yesterday that they do not make the desserts themselves and they have them shipped in, claiming that "reselling is how America works" and they "told Gordon Ramsey they made them because he is not from America and wouldn't understand how it works". Some of those comments were deleted shortly after being posted but I have the screenshots of them. In addition, nearly all of the images posted on their website and facebook page have been discovered as stolen from other online sources. Several of the original creators and owners of the images have been notified and are trying to get the images removed. The "Order Shipping" page of the website contained many of these and appears to have been shut down but the images in the facebook page are still active and the original image links have been added in the comments by those that found them. Some image owners are also commenting on these to get them taken down with no luck so far. OFF THE CHARTS!!!

How about all the stupid, dopey welfare recipients and dependent class who vote for the Democrats? That MORE than balances it out.

Re: “A Note To the 'Keep Tucson Shitty' Crowd: You're the Problem

How old are you kid? Do you even remember what they had to do to build the convention center, what they tore down? Keep Tucson Shitty is just a euphemism, it doesn't mean keep it crawling with roaches, it means that we should preserve Tucson's character as a scrappy border city with a lot of HISTORY and character that stems from that history. I too enjoy many of the new places downtown, but let's not overlook the effects of rampant development now that everyone's trying to jump on the bandwagon. It's sweet and all that after years in effing Oro Valley the Jax owners decide they want to capitalize on the new trend, but are they really "contributing" or just trying to get their piece of the pie?

Keep Tucson Shitty means don't develop for development's sake. Perhaps a better slogan would be "Don't Phoenix Tucson".

Re: “Rep. Martha McSally, Former Rep. Ron Barber, and Courage

The ACA didn't "collapse under its own weight," like the fool above supposes- the insurance companies raised their rates because to them money is more important than people. The state-level GOP also refused the Medicaid expansion from the Feds because they also actually hate human beings too- especially poor, brown, black or female people- in any combination you like.

Re: “Local Media Pros Som and Krystin Lisaius Indicted on Drug-Related Child Abuse Charges

Funny you say you know them personally and they are being portrayed unfairly in the meove? Must suck to have the tables turned! How about the reports they have done over the years? Maybe those people felt the same way. In time this will blow over just like everything else. One thing I will say is that it's apparent that drugs were involved and if you don't want to risk getting caught don't involve yourself with that kind of stuff especially if you're a local celebrity.

Re: “Will Hispanics Help Elect Hillary in Arizona? 'Nah,' Said Jan Brewer, 'They don’t get out and vote.’

Comparing Jan Brewer to a Neanderthal is insulting to Neanderthals, especially since the latest anthropological studies indicate they had bigger brains than modern man. As for Jan's age being indicative of her intelligence or relevance in the 21st Century, ignorance has no age restrictions. Of course, those of us who have seen more than a couple presidential elections have a better perspective on just how screwed up the 2016 race has become.

Nevertheless, thanks to that smaller brain size of "modern" man and a severe lack of critical thinking skills we may be seeing the next step in human evolution when a certain segment of the electorate - you know how you are - execute a full cranial rectal insertion inside the voting booth and choose a blond hair piece-wearing, knuckle-dragging, orangutan's uncle for president - with apologies to orangutans everywhere.

Re: “Seth MacFarlane and His Peculiar Distaste For Tucson

I love Tucson, I really do, but our whole state is aggressively ignorant. We have wrecked education in every way possible. Spend some time in our public schools, including the U of A, and tell me McFarlane is wrong. I wish we'd spend less time debating whether he's correct and spend more time trying to fix our glaring failures.
