204 is a No. No. No.

TUSD can not be trusted with more money.

"I recall when Jim Limbaris was a reporter (RIP)."

That would be Chris Limberis.

Re: “Editor's Note

When an elected official has as many manifested psychological problems as Ally Miller it is a blessing to have coverage from TW and the Sentinel expose her psychoses. She is paranoid for one. She doesn't want to apologize for being white (no one asked her) so she obviously has some internal racial conflicts which likely influence her votes. I can only hope that both publications will keep after exposing her and any other elected official whose actions raise more questions than speak for themselves. I count on journalist such as Jim to hand over the facts time and time again. No fake news here. I worry about the bias and protection of Ally that is continuously in place for her by the Arizona Daily Independent. Three Sonorans merely published her quote about refusing to apologize for being white and the wrath of the right has been bestowed on him. Can they not see that Ally is "off."

I recall when Jim Limbaris was a reporter (RIP). He was relentless on characters such as Ally. Hope you will continue to be relentless in tracking her insanity and how it is a barrier in her representing her PC District.

We're being asked to add 1.5 cents to sales tax, part of it for preschoolers in designated areas. Where's the outrage?

Congrats! I was going to suggest you let Ally have the trophy on weekends, but it would probably fall on her head.

Re: “Editor's Note

It used be called POLLUTION. There's no doubt that every human alive is running rough-shot over the environment. Trashing the place with garbage, sewage, fertilizer, animal slaughter and their waste, species extinct...on and on. But there's no grants or Federal money to study what will take an eon to prove or disprove. If it was called pollution again, the same 'concerned' snowflakes would have to get up off their ass and clean the place up by modifying their own disgusting human behavior.

You like driving? How about that AC, use of a toilet, and the methane you personally emit just like the animals you eat? Everyone is guilty but Global Warming finger pointers. Pat yourselves on the back while you eat until you burst and contaminate yourselves with constant alcohol.

Re: “Editor's Note

Following up on blsap's comment - continuing to permit mass migration from Latin America to the United States actually increases net global carbon emissions in at least two ways. First, it takes people out of more sustainable agrarian economies and plugs them into our less sustainable, car based economy. Second, birthrates for Latin American immigrants to the U.S. are actually quite a bit higher than birthrates of even demographically similar people in Latin America. This makes sense when you consider the social services and quality education available to children born in the United States versus, for example, Mexico.

One of the most effective ways the U.S. can manage its carbon emissions is to get a handle on immigration driven population growth. We have a responsibility to the planet to do that.

Re: “Editor's Note

We should definitely reduce greenhouse gases as fast as possible. It's a disaster. We should also help out other countries affected by rising temperatures.
On migration, instead of militarization (which is mostly ineffective) we can pass mandatory E-Verify nationwide and make examples of a few employers and the problem of illegal immigration will mostly go away. We have no duty to overpopulate our country and sink our working class just because other countries have. Nor should anyone bully us into doing so out of some sort of racial guilt.

Re: “Editor's Note

Expanded coverage? To what end? You have more articles on this than there are illegals in the U.S. But not one of them mentions that DACA was illegally created by President Obama. It was an un Constitutional power grab that would have caught your hair on fire if Trump had done it. Why can't you guys play fair? It must have something to do with your ideas and motives. Better hope they don't resort to violence like the other socialists or their chance is over.

Re: “Editor's Note

First off, those contributions to Medicare and Social Security will be more than offset by their later withdrawals from those systems.
And that "unnecessary turnover" is due to American workers getting jobs at higher pay rates; mostly minority and lower American workers. Isn't that supposed to be a good thing?

Re: “Editor's Note

On Arpaio vs. the Dreamers: The Dreamers came to this country as children. They were not of an age where they could consider the breaking of immigration law. Joe Arpaio was sworn to uphold the law. He was not charged and convicted for trying uphold immigration law. He was charged and convicted for violating a court order, a serious crime for a law enforcement officer sworn to uphold the law. He INTENTIONALLY violated the law. Trump's pardoning him sends a very terrible message. The foundation of dictatorship is the use of police/military to suppress civil rights.. Whether one agrees or disagrees with the extending of legal residence and/or citizenship to Dreamers, either outcome has no where the dangerous implications as pardoning illegal acts by an officer of the law.
For those of you who are not convinced of the seriousness of this, think about every movie you have seen in which there is a violent dictatorship. You always see the police/military acting without due process. That's how dictatorship and the suppression of human rights is done.

Re: “Editor's Note

Trump's sending this back to Congress could result in their offering a similar plan to DACA. This would satisfy their desire that this be a legislatively passed plan, rather than an executive order. (Of course, they would have to repackage it enough so that their base would not realize it, just like so many in their base did not understand that the ACA was the same thing as Obamacare and that they had Obama to thank for their new found access to health care.) This may sound ridiculously optimistic. The reason I suggest it as a possibility is that I think this an area the Republicans were always willing to compromise on. However, they were stopped by their political strategy. Since the time of Newt Gingrich, their goal has been to show people that the government is broken and that only Republicans can get anything done. (The only time they were willing to vote with Democrats was to wage war or to pass policies that would further benefit the uber-rich.) Unfortunately, in the process, they have fanned the flames of anti-government hatred. They have created a base that is full of hatred of the other and has no appreciation of the way democracy works. Democracy is not a winner-take-all game, but one which often requires negotiation and compromise. I think the Republicans have backed themselves into a corner from which they may not be able to escape unscathed by the base they created and handed over to Trump.

Durham's hit pieces against Chew are a turn-off. No one in our central neighborhood has his campaign signs up. (They're only stuck on street corners with the others'.)
He's desperate.

Re: “Editor's Note

Thank you, Tucson Weekly! And specifically, thank you, Margaret and Tom for your excellent coverage. We (the Bisbee Deportation Centennial Commemoration Committee) have worked long and hard on studying the Deportation and have put together what we believe is a pretty durn good program of events and presentations about one of the most significant events to take place during Arizona's time as a state. I urge everyone interested in our state's history and Bisbee in particular to come down this weekend and next weekend. Who knows? You may even meet a Wobbly or two!
