Re: “Hands off the wheel

The ethics of AI and automation have not caught up with the social impact and quantum probabilities that what were once roadways uses that included adventure and pleasure in addition to commerce, are now being monitored by business but supported by the travelers. There should be a hefty fee to support the examination of the social and environmental impacts of the complete monetization of infrastructure intended to support multipurpose activity and designed for an era when the technology served the human condition, not damaged it. A synchronicity approaches!

Re: “Danehy

Cut the cord, steam what little is worth watching. They are giants of cable bloat who simply want to milk you for a steady stream of cash, keeping you stupid while simultaneously cultivating the worst in human nature. Amid all of that, allow you to believe that you are informed instead of being formed.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Endangered Species

Why would someone, such as Clifford, keep returning to read a comic he obviously dislikes? I read some Mallard Fillmore comics once, they sucked and I'll never read any of them again.

Also, if those are the rules for impeachment, then Clifford should be impeached.

Re: “Danehy

Too true, too true Danehy! So how about filling us in on how in hell, or better yet, WHO in hell got paid off to ensure that Comcast (or its shi-shi Xfinity name) and Cox cable essentially were granted open season on pricing thanks to structured non-compete service areas? Whomever was/is responsible needs to go to jail. The cable consumers of Pima County & the rest of So. AZ have been getting ripped off for over a decade. So, how about some answers?

Re: “Afternoon Cartoon: Grumpy Cat

Here is a concept that is hard to wrap your head around.

That says that we can't fix these problems. It's not us.

Re: “Afternoon Cartoon: Grumpy Cat

Climate change denial = cyclical. Every time it gets cold, some people can't resist trying to pretend it's not happening, which merely serves to demonstrate their fundamental misunderstanding of the entire concept.

Re: “Ducey Does a Budget Deal With Republican Legislators - Do They Have the Votes To Pass It?

We would really need a tax system that gets rid of the numerous exemptions, in the sales tax base and the huge number of credits, and rate schemes.

Re: “Back in Gear: The Bike Ranch

Saguaro National Park (East) is 67,000 acres of protected habitat for wildlife. The Bike Ranch location is totally outside of the preserve and on the opposite side of Old Spanish Trail from it. If approved, the Bike Ranch will be on a 20 acre lot and leave half of the lot as open space for wildlife corridors. That's way more than the 30% open space required by the Buffer Zone Ordinance. The suggestion that Bike Ranch is a threat to the park or the wildlife in it is simply inflammatory propaganda.
The proposal meets or exceeds the requirements and the intent of the Buffer Zone Ordinance according to the guy who was Director of Pima County Planning and Development Services when it was created. The Superintendent of Saguaro National Park submitted a letter saying the Bike Ranch supports National Park Service initiatives and they look forward to working with Bike Ranch going forward. US Game and Fish commission has blessed the plan. Department of Transportation has approved the plan to proceed. The bottom line: Every agency that has experience and responsibility to evaluate plans like these has given their approval. I really don't see how the Board of Supervisors can deny the proposal unless they are willing to say they think all these agencies are incompetent.
Lets remember that the land in question is private land, not some kind of wilderness preserve. The owner is paying taxes on it every year and is not obligated to leave it vacant. Something is going to be built there. The Bike Ranch is the most eco-friendly proposal we are ever likely to see. Their commitment to strive for Platinum LEED certification is testament to that. There is no reason to expect less impact on the park, the environment, or traffic if the property is cut up and sold to a new cluster of single family homes or used for some other business.
Lets talk about the good Bike Ranch will do for our community. It will be a new jewel in Tucson's crown as a bike friendly destination city. It will bring bicycle tourists to Pima County and generate more interest in our bike paths and bike lanes. If we want that network to grow, then we want to promote events and businesses that make use of it. We could have a network of safe bicycle transit from Vail to Marana and Green Valley to Oro Valley someday. That network would enable alternative transit and healthy lifestyle choices for residents while bringing in tourist dollars year round. Bike Ranch would be a great asset in Tucson's effort to grow as a bicycling destination. I would hate to see this opportunity slip through our hands.

Re: “Updated: Looking for a New Pet? Forgo the Puppy Mills at 'Adopt, Don't Shop'

Choosing a pet is not only about the animal, it's also about what is right for the pet owner. I have looked at all the adopt-a-pet websites over many months and have visited as well, and the majority of dogs that are available are some sort of pit or rottie mix. What if the person looking for a pet wants a breed that is easier to handle or care for, and/or doesn't come with a history of neglect or abuse that will likely manifest in behavioral issues? I'm old, had a stroke last year, and I would love to have a pet companion, but pet shelters offer limited choices that aren't right for everyone. I couldn't handle bathing or even walking a heavy dog. Don't judge people for wanting a dog that pet shelters don't offer. Adopting would have been my first choice, but it could take me years to find a pet through a shelter, and I'm already old. lol

Re: “Ducey Does a Budget Deal With Republican Legislators - Do They Have the Votes To Pass It?

"Fair share" is a fraudulent term. What you want is to punish success by making them pay more for programs you like. Dump these swamp rats and go to a flat tax where everybody gives 14% and we would collect much more than wasting time with these vote getting promises and loopholes where some pay nothing at all and others are given thousands just for being here. What a mess they have made out of our tax system. Here is 14%. Don't spend it all in one place because it's all you get.
