Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Quid Pro Uh-Oh

Every time I attempt to read one of Captain Arizona's poorly written rants, peppered with ridiculous terms like "Clintonistas", etc., I picture J. Frank Parnell from Repo Man:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3VKzqAefBV…

Let's see, proclaiming to be a long-time leftist activist he supported Russian asset Jill Stein which helped hand our democracy to Trump, now he's supporting alleged Russian asset Tulsi Gabbard, who is the most conservative candidate among those trying to get the Democratic nomination.

Another commenter on another thread speculated "Captain" is a self awarded rank. Perhaps the Kremlin awarded it?

Captain, you're either a fool or a fraud, in your case the two are not mutually exclusive. Oh, and you're busted to Buck Private Arizona. Have a nice evening Bucky.

Clinton who once called putin a reformer says she longs for the day there was only 3 networks and a few news papers so the people would think what they are supposed to think! Do YOU think what you are supposed to think?

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Quid Pro Uh-Oh

Beneal, finally, you're the first commenter today not to push Russian propaganda and misinformation. It's getting hard to tell if cap is actually a Russian instigator trolling Tucson or just some poor sole who's lost his marbles. As for his followers, just pathetic, confused, ignorant people who don't understand why their lives and society aren't what they should be. BTW, George Kent never mentioed "Quid Pro Quo" what he did say was that the job had poor optics. Nothing illegal.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Feel The Endorsements

As for jill stein being a russian asset brought in for the 2016 election as hellbot claims. She ran in 2012! The same people attacked ralph nader in 2000. Voting third party when the democratic party tries to foist on us a war mongering corrupt crook. The best vote you can make if you love america. The election of trump clensed the democratic party of clintonism third way evil. We still have to clense the party of quid pro quo bidenism. We must burn out the establishment corporatists and their donor class masters in the military industrial complex from leadership in the democratic party.

Re: “Democrat Kathy Hoffman Is Arizona Republicans' Enemy Number One

A note to "Q.E.D., again": I don't agree with you on most occasions, and I wish you would settle on a handle so it's clear who is commenting. On the other hand, anyone who got my John Milton reference and could link it to Cromwell and the Puritans is at least a little all right in my book. However, in response, if I felt I had to agree with the politics or religious leanings of every writer, artist and musician I admire, I would be in serious trouble. Milton's sonnet stands on its own merits.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Feel The Endorsements

The vicious attacks on tulsi gabbard by hillary clinton and her running dogs in the media shows the establishment of the democratic party has been taken over by war mongering neo-con artists and their donors in the military industrial complex. I opposed the republican war mongers then and the democratic war mongers now. We peace people have been called communist dupes since the vietnam war. Tulsi gabbard is who I will be voting for in the primary. Sorry bernie I love you too!

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Quid Pro Uh-Oh

Jill Stein was a tool of Vladimir Putin. She was at a dinner table with Michael Flynn and Putin before the 2016 elections.You can pull up the photo by putting the three names and dinner into google search and see for yourself. Putin and the Republicans knew that Stein would pull voters from the Democratic candidate and they helped her launch her campaign and keep it working. All during the campaign I waited for any prominent Democrat to bring this up but none of them ever did . Trying to get a message to a campaign is impossible so the information died on the vine.

Re: “Democrat Kathy Hoffman Is Arizona Republicans' Enemy Number One

AZ/DC My apologies for getting your gender wrong. I had read it from another poster, but I still had trouble believing that a woman would talk like that.

This site allows us to post anonymously and I don't use my full name for protection of the slander and defamation that continues to occur. I believe we can discuss things without all the cursing and name calling.

Re: “UA Vet School in Oro Valley Receives Approval

danwashuk, I was curious too. I think (not sure) the address might be 2090 E. Innovation Park Drive: https://www.google.com/search?q=2090+E.+In…

Another address listed is 1580 E Hanley Blvd. Oro Valley, AZ 85737 ... but that might be an old, temporary location. Not much information really.

Re: “Idiot Boksen - 10 Things I Hate About "Downton Abbey"

The sound quality, heavens! Half the time we have to stop the show and re play it to try and figure out what the hell was said.
Cora can't act and I can't stand looking at her crazy eyes. Robert is a pussy. I can't imagine people in their position relating to the maids and servants like these two did. It is just not believable. I hope Bates killed his wife and the rapist. Big deal. Two fewer idiots on the planet.
Mary is mean and nuts. Sybil didnt even like the chauffeur, then runs off to marry him. Edith is a big whiner. Give it a rest Edith.

And the Academy Award goes to Isis! He needed a bigger part to play, to take away attention from all the sappy whiners and mean crybabies, black-mailers and card sharks. God, times were just as messy back then (100 years ago).

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Quid Pro Uh-Oh

I sure didn't vote for hillbot or drumpf. I voted honorably for jill stein wither you clintonistas like it or not. cursing people out makes you feel good for the ignorant. You clinton lovers should of thought about what drumpf would do before you foisted clinton on the democratic party. Like hillbot qid pro quo joe will win many states in the south that democrats won't carry in the general. And also like hillbot make many democrats vote third party or stay home. the lesser of two evils is still evil!

Re: “Democrat Kathy Hoffman Is Arizona Republicans' Enemy Number One

How is so-called LIBERALITY consistent with aggressive obscenities launched at anyone who disagrees with party orthodoxy, or with justifications of the forced relocation of students?

What an absurd spectacle: David Safier and his whole gaggle of holier-than-thou, modern-day secularized Puritans, crusading, hysterical, self-righteous LIBERALS-in-name-only, stoking their hatreds and pursuing their various witch-hunts: they are coercive, dishonest, imperialist ideologues. The obscenity-slinging commenters who follow David around blow his civility cover with predictable regularity and make it very clear what kind of dysfunctional hatred and aggression his political cabal stokes and entrenches in our communities.

Go ahead, David: praise Kathy Hoffman for making sure those kids on the border with New Mexico will soon be back in schools where they may learn beneficial skills like how to call anyone who disagrees with you a f***un POS troll. The most important thing is that the schools they attend should be Arizona PUBLIC DISTRICT schools, right? No need to look into what kind of environment the forced change will put them in, with certified or uncertified teachers, with discipline problems, inadequate educational materials, or unsafe facilities. As long as the schools funding structures pass the Democratic Partys litmus test, Hoffman is doing those kids a favor by forcing their conformity with Party orthodoxy. That is the schizophrenic THINKING (?) behind your Partys interpretation of this situation, an interpretation which has nothing to do with education and everything to do with IDEOLOGICAL WARFARE, with no regard for civilian casualties.

As you wrote in your last blog, quoting one of the self-righteous Puritan prigs who is a suitable model for your latter day self-congratulatory BS-feed, they also serve who only sit and write. But serve WHAT, David? Oliver Cromwell, in the original case, and his dangerous 21st century equivalents, in yours. Very LIBERAL indeed. Revisit Cromwells history in Ireland some time, if youd like to get a good look at the moral quality of what was being served by your Puritan predecessor. There are some interesting parallels between Cromwells favored kinds of hatred and the sentiments behind some of your tribes educational policy priorities.

(Why did some political factions start developing a policy toolkit to limit the reach and influence of networks like Davids that have lodged themselves in some (not all) public institutions of education? Gee, I wonder.)

Re: “Harmony and Twang

I've been acquainted with these two lovely people for a number of years. I have an indie record label and David has been heavily involved in doing engineering work for me. He is a real audiophile and perfectionist. One day a few weeks ago I called and as David and I chatted, I heard beautiful music in the background. I asked him who he was listening to. It was LaVerne -- singing live. What a wonderful story about two great human beings. Bravo to them both -- and to the writer who did such a great job of profiling these two wonderful people!

Re: “Danehy

we used to have a sense of humor and could laugh at ourselves and those different from us. multicultural comedians are hilarious at pointing out the differences in culture. Not racist. It's a funny look of how groups with different backgrounds deal with stuff. Good enough for Pryor & Murphy, what's the big deal?

Our Congress has sold us out for pieces of silver. Downsizing government and reducing authority is the only way forward.
