Re: “Think of the Children

204, absolutely not. Child-rearing is not the government's job.
Props 202 and 203 are so mind-bogglingly complex that there is no way I'll vote for either one. I like the zoo, but there has to be a better way to fund it than a sales tax, especially when basic services like schools and roads are in such bad shape.

Re: “Think of the Children

No accountability to voters, no goals, no end..ever.

Easy Choice: NO on Prop 204.

Re: “Memorial Service

Am I the only one who thinks the location is inappropriate? This should be built at the shopping center where the shooting took place, not downtown. I am definitely open to reasons why downtown is a better location but it seems like the only reason is because it is public land and the shopping center is private land which would make the process more difficult....

Re: “Procession Migration

The All Souls Procession is the best act of culturally appropriative white hipster diversity tourism that Baja Arizona offers.

Re: “Procession Migration

bslap, This is exactly the reason the procession is being moved to the West side. The influence of the procession comes from the Latino beliefs and therefore will be pushed out of the center city just like the population and the barrio was....

Re: “The Power of Positivity

I was on TIHAN's Board of Directors when the idea of the Poz Cafe was brought to us. I was skeptical, not at all confident it would succeed. Sometimes it's marvelous to be proved wrong! Congratulations and thanks to all who have contributed to the 25,000 meal success of Poz Cafe.

Re: “Procession Migration

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

Re: “UA's OSIRIS-REx slingshots past Earth

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.
