Re: “Man Arrested for Damaging, Stealing Water Tanks Left For Migrants

Wake up! Those barrels were not on private property! The property they say is private was a derelict property that was abandoned! The house and trailer is gutted out and stripped! All the fence posts surrounding the property are gone and the "fence" is on the ground, mostly cut up!! There are no signs that say keep out or signs saying private property!!! He was arrested next to the fence of the elementary school in Three Points where the drug mules use it as a pickup and drop point for drugs!! All along and outside the fence to the school there are camo clothes and carpet shoes and backpacks that were dropped by the drug mules right next to the elementary school!! That's where they arrested him while he was cleaning up all the debris left by the drug mules and the caryel!! He was doing you a service and helping this community!! And now you freaking trash his name!! He isnt looney and he is no threat!! The only ones he threatens is the cartel and the people who help them like Humane Borders!! They place those blue water barrels all along the drug and human trafficking routes 80 miles through our desert!! Our desert is a barrier that Humane Borders negates by placing water for the traffickers to get through the desert. They wouldnt be able to travel through that desert without water. So Humane Borders supplies it with our funded tax dollars!! That's why they came after Lewis and VOP!! Because by hitting the barrels we stopped thier entire ooeration!! Dont you get it!? VOP was hurting thier money!! They dont like not getting paid!! And there are a lot of corrupt officials that dont want the trafficking to stop!! Lewis a a patriot and was doing this community a great service!! And you put out a story to trash his name!! Its all fake news!! And Lewis is only still in jail because of a stupid probation hold!! Get your facts straight! I was there in that desert and saw that rape trees with panties from the rape victims hung in the trees like trophies!! I was there and saw the pink little girls backpacks and shoes next to condoms on the ground!! You people know nothing!! I personally saw the canyons filled with three feet deep of camo clothes and carpet shoes and backpacks that ran for over a hundred yards multiple times!! We tracked them from Sasabe and Aravaca and Ruby all along the desert to Thee Point and then tracked them north all the way to Lewis's property to the one lane bridge a mile from Lewis's house. They use the bridge as a pickup location!! Black Sinaloa Cartel water jugs all along the way!! They use the black jugs for water between the blue barrel sites. So they fill up thier black jugs and walk to the next blue barrel water station, and then the next until they get all the way to Pheonix!! They cant carry enough water to get them 100 miles to Pheonix so they use Humane Borders Water stations to get them through the desert! Wake up!! Our tax dollars are paying for drugs and women and children to be trafficked through our desert!! Its disgusting!! The only one who should be locked up is Joel Smith!! Head of Humane Borders!! For helping to traffick in drugs and women and children who get raped all along the way!!

Re: “The Skinny

Wow -- 48 "dislikes" on my comment. Kind of highlights the difference between a free press and a kept press. While distracted by the bullying of Supervisor Miller by the Weakly's editor, no one is informed that the Pima County Board of Supervisors on December 3 -- a week ago -- approved the County Administrator's plan for state legislation -- a plan that certainly impacts Weakly readers.

The BOS, with Miller and Christie voting No, wants state legislation to increase our taxes (a 15 cent gas tax increase), penalize "green" drivers (an equivalent "road tax" for electric vehicle drivers), a sales tax increase to fund pensions for elected officials and public safety participants while at the same time reducing public safety retirement benefits by eliminating overtime from benefit calculations; reduce transparency by eliminating newspaper and mail notices required for government operations like bidding on contracts or selling surplus land; reducing services by eliminating county contributions to state juvenile corrections and long-term care programs.

Not to mention that Pima Coiunty's lobbyist, Michael Racy, is being paid $280,000 taxpayer dollars a year to get the plan implemented in Phoenix.

I read about it in the Arizona Daily Independent, another target of the editor's bullying. Not a word in the Weakly or any of the other Tucson Local Media papers managed by Chuck Huckelberry, I mean Jim Nintzel. You can read the resolution for yourselves at:…

And for the record: I vote Independent and am currently registered Democrat to vote for Elizabeth Warren in the primary. I've met Supervisor Miller twice, in brief conversations during BOS breaks. I write occasionally for the Independent because I value a free press. They've never censored me or refused an article, as was the case during the dozen years I wrote for Desert Times, and sometimes for the Weekly, prior to TLM's takeover. A recent Guest Commentary for the Weakly was refused by the editor. That's the difference between a free press and a kept press.

Re: “Where Have All The Teachers Gone? (Long Time Passing)

Where have all the teachers gone is interesting, and worrisome. However, maybe the more relevant question is who or what will replace the human teachers. Will an AI robot teacher be less effective than most human teachers? In today's world, and more so in the future, most students will be at ease with robots and computers and google. The public schools, like the society they serve, have changed significantly over the past century, and we ain't seen nothing yet. Interesting times!

Re: “Ex-Education Superintendent John Huppenthal And I Have a Rare Moment Of Agreement, About State Grades

I have been working at a very low-income public school in a rural Arizona area for several years now. Our kids come to us with little or no preschool, speech and language difficulties, and basically one to two years behind......before they even start kindergarten. Our dedicated, engaging teachers do a marvelous job with these kids.....dealing with not only academic challenges...but also social, emotional, speech, language, family, and poverty issues. As a result, even though our students make tremendous growth, they are not performing at grade level. Several of us have wondered.....Could a test be given at the beginning of the academic year....and then at the end of the same academic show their actual growth?

Re: “Where Have All The Teachers Gone? (Long Time Passing)

Well.....I can tell you where two extremely competent, bright young teachers went. After scraping by for two years in Arizona, one young teacher received a $8,500.00 raise teaching kindergarten at a public school in New Mexico. The other young teacher received a $10,000.00 raise teaching third grade at a public school in Texas. Both of them shared with me (with amazement) that their schools get them whatever resources or materials they might need....within a week or two. They were so appreciative that they didn't have to beg and plead or go to Donors Choose for funds. Let's face it. Arizona state leaders have not supported public schools and public school teachers for a long, long time! In fact, until Arizona voters change the complexion of our state legislature...very little will change in the way they DON"T support public education and public education teachers.

Re: “Danehy

Lying Tom wrote: “Back then, school in L.A. started around the autumnal equinox (Sept. 21) and ended around the summer solstice (June 21).”

Why didn’t he just write September 21st and June 21st? In his insecurity he always has to try to impress everyone with how smart he thinks he is.

Lying Tom wrote: “…and the fact that Donald Trump uses it on a daily basis…”

Of course Lying Tom has to bring President Trump into a conversation about transgender people and gender pronouns.

What does President Trump use on a daily basis?

Lying Tom wrote: “But I also wish that all of the people who work themselves into a lather over little or nothing would take their deadname and shove it up what used to be called their rectum.”

Lying Tom is nasty piece of work and a really bad human being.

Who is he to decide what people want to called? What is it to him what name or term someone wants to use for themselves? How arrogant.

Does he also have problems with the terms Native American and African American? Well we already know Racist Tom doesn’t like the names that African Americans give their kids (e.g. his column on 10/17) so there is a good chance he doesn’t.

This is the second column in 4 weeks that Transphobic Tom has chosen to hammer transgendered people. Is there anyone who doesn’t think he has a serious problem with them?

The "Truth":

I can't explain why you choose to believe in bullshit. It's unexplainable. Take your sock puppet ass to a website that supports the dumbshit lies that you believe. Until then, keep getting whipped over here.

Believe me, I know your type. You like to be whipped.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Putin's Minions

Some people are either confused or very deliberately spreading what they know to be Russian propaganda. Hillary never solicited help from anyone in Ukraine. In any election, of course of nations are going to favor one candidate of another. Ukraine did not hack anyone. They did not attempt to hack anyone or attempt to gain access to our election system. It is a red herring and a Russian propaganda talking point that despite being briefed by the Intelligence community congressional Republicans & ignorant Trump supporters STILL continue to propagate. It is a sadly predictable pattern of treasonous behavior and like all good propaganda campaigns the thing you do?
To paraphrase Joseph Goebbles~ Always accuse the other side of that of which you are guilty. So every accusation Trump or Republicans make just prove they are following the NAZI propaganda handbook that Putin follows.

truth afford ID's is only one problem. some don't have birth certificates as they were born on indian reservations many have lost theirs or don't know where it is. years ago republican think tanks investigated how to stop as many democrats from voting and this is one of the best ways they came up with.
