Re: “Homeless Program Working

Does this program provide an opportunity to get job training that would eventually lead to a real job with one of the sponsoring businesses or entities? HSL Properties, the COT, Pima County, Cox, Wal-Mart, etc have an obligation to do more than this if they really want to have a positive impact on the homeless problem in our community. Without job training and a road map to get these people out of shelters this is just a band aid at best and enabling at worst. This might be a good first step but it's going to leaps and bounds for us to get out the mud, so what is the next step? Is there a plan?

Re: “Trumpcare Is Dead

I'm from Canada - and while there's very little difference between our countries, the fact that we spend half as much as you guys do on health care (and get the same, if not better, outcomes) makes Canada, to put it bluntly, a better place to live. This isn't a liberal thing either - in Canada, every single seat-holding party in both the provinces (our equivalent of states) and federally support single payer health care, including the Conservative Party of Canada.

Why were we able to do this, and not the US? Because a brave baptist minister named Tommy Douglas (recently voted the greatest Canadian who ever lived by a nationwide popular vote) stood up to the government, insurance companies, doctors themselves and the AMA (yes, your American Medical Association tried to stop us) and forced the federal government's hand.

That's how you get real health care - by abandoning your loyalty to one of two political parties, and pledging your loyalty to your fellow citizens - even those who oppose you.

Re: “Trumpcare Is Dead

Continue to ignore the fact that 20 million were forced into buying insurance they did not want, or paid the fine to keep from buying insurance.

Who represents them?

Re: “Flow Job

Chuck could have avoided this whole mess if he'd purchased the property when it was offered to the county for $11 million to add to the Sonoran Desert Conservation Plan as open space before it was subsequently sold to Rosemont for $20 million. It would be interesting to see what the county has spent fighting this project since then...

Amen to the "keep right except to pass." Drives (no pun intended) me crazy here in the U.S. Enjoying your diaries and want to see you live when you return to Tucson.

Re: “Trumpcare Is Dead

With everything that is going on inside and outside the Beltway with this administration, anyone that imagines they will play by any rules -- other than "those that rule make the rules" -- is living in a fool's paradise.

As for so-called Trumpcare, the photo-illustration used with this story is more indicative of what we can expect from those in power right now -- a lot of people dying.

Considering what they are trying to do overall with healthcare, Trumpcare's signature slogan could be "take two bullets to the head and call me in the morning."

Re: “Fun and Games and More

What a clever curator, to have found Sam and Poe in Bisbee! And then to bring them to Tucson! I'm entranced by their work and I've visited the exhibit three times already. I'm planning to bring some friends to share it with.

Rosemont should be killed, it will drain all the water used by the growers in Green Valley area.

FLAKE IS A CLOSET DEMOCRAP, he supported everything the traitor that lived in the while house did for 8 years. I hope he looses the next election and a real conservative is elected.

You could wait for the next president, but 7 1/2 years with out health care is a long time.

They also deserve full benefits and a pension plan. Wait a minute nobody was cleaning the streets before except volunteers that payed taxes.

Re: “Flow Job

Yep, it's always the left. And those damn environmentalists.

Between the two of them, all we get are common sense solutions to the short sided greed that the wrong, oh excuse me, the "right", engage in.

But, hey, we can all eat money and drink oil, right MYOB?

Make sure you're the first in line to drink the tainted water if the Rosemont Greedmongers get their way. Who knows, that action may actually change what you believe to be true.
