Re: “The Power of Positivity

I was on TIHAN's Board when the idea of the Poz Caf was introduced and I was not confident it would succeed. Sometimes it's great to be wrong!

Re: “Procession Migration

Please don't go if you're not Mexican-Hispanic because that would be cultural appropriation.

This is a project that should make all Southern Arizonans proud of the work being done at the University of Arizona.

Re: “Check-in Time

This building rivals the Unisource structure for uninspiring design.
Or more bluntly - ugliness.

Re: “Congressman in Cuffs

MY, my, my, Tucson Weekly:

Regarding Open Border Policy: What a CHANGE public sentiment from 2006, when the ENTIRE Tucson establishment was "pro-raza, cheap Mexican labor!"

Maybe its time for an objective article on this issue?

Re: “Congressman in Cuffs

Raul the Fool strikes again. Makes you REAL proud to be an Arizonan. Probably most of you aren't from N.Y.C. ,So, you've never heard of the Tombs. The Manhattan House of Detention. I would have loved if there was a mix-up with the paper work and they stuck Raul's ass in there for a week !!

Re: “Congressman in Cuffs

Grijalva is a Pied Piper who, along with other Left Wingers, is responsible for thousands of deaths of those who died illegally coming here, thousands of children who were sold into sexual slavery, hundreds of thousands who were raped, and ten million or more who now fear deportation.

Guess What?

For two decades, Grijalva's support for Pro-Raza Open Border policy, or "aiding and abetting, enticing and inviting or otherwise encouraging the illegal entry of Mexico's poor for economic and political exploitation" has created misery that is un-measurable in its dimensions, billions of dollars of extra profit for fat-cat republican employers looking to drive down the value of labor, and 95% of the case load (EMPLOYMENT) for the judges employed in Arizona's District Courts, for which they are GRATEFUL.

Read the Walrus and the Carpenter. Of course the Mexican poor are the young oysters who leave their oyster beds only to be eaten.

How else did Grijalva get so fat?

Re: “Congressman in Cuffs

What an embarassment: our Congressional representative arrested like a common criminal.
Let's face it, the only immigration policy Grijalva would support is automatic American citizenship for every Mexican citizen that requests it.

Waaa-waaa-wa. Little Mexican babies need a MAS binky in order to grade out in their other classes. The Mexicans can have TUSD and just to be fair, they can have El Paso too.

Re: “White Doesn't Make Right

jhuppent, I can understand your point, but surely you would agree that it would tend to depend upon the _context_ (and isn't this always the case?) in which these _revisionist_ studies take place.
I admit, that if taught with an equally puerile, of not angry, _revanchist_ perspective, we're back to square one and set the stage for social divisiveness of the kind we've witnessed recently from Yugoslavia to Iraq to Syria--futile brother vs brother, Hatfield vs McCoy ancestral feuds that achieve nothing but resentment, bitterness and, heaven forbid, bloodshed.
No, I merely meant teach History in a forthright manner in order to avoid Santayana's injunction; in order to learn history's bitter, hard-earned lessons. We cannot and must not repeat our forefathers' costly, inhumane mistakes.
We must away from teaching _American Mythology 101_ in our schools and smugly label such teaching "history." That's what I resent. And that's what I believe the promoters of balance and perspective desire. If not, like you, I join in condemning _any_ resentful, vindictive motives! Such motives are unworthy of any of us who truly believe in unchaining ourselves and our posterity from the dungeons of ignorance and hate.
Be well.

Re: “White Doesn't Make Right

Nathan K, of the three court decisions you described, all of them were so removed from the actual decisions as to make it difficult to determine which decisions you were describing. The last one was only recognizable because it pertained to the subject of the article above. I would challenge you to locate the phrase "raza studies" in the judge's opinion.

Honestly, with reference to the first decision you describe, I have no idea which decision you are attempting to describe. At all.

Re: “Beneath the Surface

Climate Change is a complete hoax consisting of three intellectual frauds.

First, they have falsified total ice volumes of the earth by loading total ice measurements with obscure gravitational models masquerading as ice measurement.

Laser models, by far the most accurate method of measuring ice, show total ice volumes of the planet's ice shelves at or close to all-time records.

If the ice shelves are at or close to all-time records, the measurement of the oceans also has to be fraudulent. How was this fraud done? Again, obscure modeling to show the ocean floors sinking at a rapid pace. If the ocean's surface isn't rising, that's where they hide the non-existent water- in the volume created by a falling ocean floor.

The final fraud is in temperature measurement. The temperature modeling of the First International Panel on Climate Change ended up at the fifth percentile of the model's projection. Meaning, of course, the model lacked validity. A model and a hypothesis that can't predict or explain the past is really worthless at predicting the future. They were able to solve this problem by changing past weather temperature records. They went back and reduced historically recorded temperatures sufficiently to be able to declare current records "all-time highs."

Our current planet temperatures are not statistically different than the originally recorded temperatures.

I am sure that most readers find it inconceivable that a fraud this elaborate, sustained and outrageous could be conducted by our prestigious scientists. However, intellectual frauds in which masses of scientists participate are actually par for the course since research journals began in 1665. Some of these have run for a hundred years. Others have run until the horrific consequences became too glaring to cover up.

It's a philosophy thing. Our western civilization is built around Socrates, Plato and Aristotle formulations for pursuing the truth and pursuing good. Over the last two millennia, that has slowly been replaced with the pursuit of power. Anthropomorphic climate change gives scientists an enormous amount of power over their fellow citizens.

Re: “White Doesn't Make Right

Response to Socrates2
I don't have any problem with your comment. It provides balance and perspective.

My point is a curriculum which teaches young students that oppression is a one-way street, i.e. whites oppressing minorities, damages kids. Leaves them thinking about "getting even."

UCLA coach John Wood had a great saying "time spent getting even is better spent getting ahead."

Oppression went in every direction in history. Every race took a turn oppressing somebody.

Re: “White Doesn't Make Right

jhuppent, it's quite telling when an individual selectively posts one or two isolated facts about any individual or culture, and these facts specifically get culled for their tendency to demonize an entire culture. Sad. What a crude, if not puerile, attempt at propaganda...
Can you imagine if one were to characterize North American civilization as one that in the name of the ideology "Manifest Destiny" savagely attacked, massacred, and quarantined natives in "reservations" and other cultural groups in the hundreds of thousands? A culture that in the sacrosanct name of "Property" shipped tens of thousands of Africans in chains to this continent, enslaved millions of them and forced them to work under hellish working conditions in cotton and tobacco plantations?
Sent hundreds of thousands of its own young men to jungles in Southeast Asia to kill the natives who refused to bow down to their ideology? That continues to send thousands of its citizens to bomb and kill civilians in countries whose leaders refuse their turn their country into a "client state?"
Please, indulging in ad hominems got old by the second week in "Speech 101..."
Let us rather celebrate the diversity that is mankind, the human race. A bright future lies ahead if we but take the time to remove "the beam from our eye."
Be well.
