Re: “As Approval Ratings Plunge, McSally Snaps at CNN Reporter

GREAT NEWS! the navy is going to name a new aircraft carrier after african american war hero Doris Miller! Miller won the navy cross in the attack on pearl harbor. Miller should have been awarded the congressional medal of honor ;but no african-american was awarded the medal honor during world war II. (we all know why they wouldn't ) When the navy announced the pearl harbor attack medals Doris Miller was listed as an un named negro sailer! The black press had to investigate to get his name and announce it. Sadly Doris Miller was killed in action in 1943 when the carrier liscome bay was sunk by japanese navy.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: To Solemnly Lickspittle

Republicans are still trying to compare Bill Clinton getting his ,"Oh Jesus" moments in the oval office Monica to the liars Trump and Nixon who have jeopardized the very fabric of Democracy and our Constitution. Are Republican conservatives so dim witted that they can't see the difference or is it just selective amnesia when a Republican is trying to undermine our Republic with their chicanery

Re: “As Approval Ratings Plunge, McSally Snaps at CNN Reporter

frances did you support bubba's impeachment for perjury and obstruction of justice? The same democrats who denounced bubba's impeachment as political such as pelosi, schumer, nadler and many more said they would not support impeachment liberal white women of the party didn't want bubba impeached. some of which publicly offered bubba oral sex! These same profiles in courage now say they have to impeach trump because these now older white women with trump derangement syndrome demand it or they will be primaried. You call names like troll when you can't refute. frances the remedy as alan pointed out to his former student toobin and you is the courts! that it is why congress put them in the constitution which you ignore.

Re: “When Drinking Liberally Goes Wrong: Tucson Group 86'd by The Shanty

If I were the owner I would NEVER have let that group squat in my bar, maybe Nancy Peloser can suggest a more suitable place for them lol

If youre planning an event with a guest speaker and are expecting a larger than usual crowd, call ahead and either offer to rent the space or let the owner know so space can be reserved for your group

I lived in Tucson from the early to mid 80s and was a regular at the Shanty, it was a great little neighborhood bar with an awesome selection of beer from around the world, it was fun to try different beer from a different country all from the comfort of your barstool, you dont go there to drink wine

Back then it wasnt easy to find such a large selection of imported beer all under one roof, not even the liquor stores had as good a selection

You also dont go to the Shanty for the popcorn if you want popcorn go to a movie lol
I remember the popcorn, it wasnt bad

I lived right up the street from the Shanty and usually went there by myself, the clientele was pretty laidback and the bartenders did a nice job

Nothing wrong with a dresscode, personally I think tank tops are for the beach or if you are in Tucson, Sabino Canyon, Reddington Pass and or Puerto Peasco
If you dont like the rules go somewhere else, there was a sign that used to hang in bars and restaurants

We Reserve The Right To Refuse Service To Anyone For Any Reason We need to put this sign back up

I moved away many years ago but when I visit Tucson I always head to the Shanty, and if Im hungry Ill go to El Charro first, if Im hungry later then its El Minuto for a cheese crisp.

Re: “As Approval Ratings Plunge, McSally Snaps at CNN Reporter

Sorry there Captain Faux, Derschewitz was talking out of both sides of his mouth and seems to have ever shifting rationales, mixing up criminal defense with impeachment. He cited the Federalist Papers but misreads them. When Trump ignores and refuses all legitimate Congressional subpoenas, the only last rememdy is impeachment. In Federalist 65, Hamilton accurately foresaw exactly what would happen and cited, "In many cases it will connect itself with the pre-existing factions and will enlist all their animosities, partialities, influence, and interest on one side or on the other and in such cases there will always be the greatest danger the decision will be regulated more by the comparative strength of parties than by the real demonstrations of innocence or guilt." Bingo, Mr Hamilton. Wrong Dershy.

Re: “As Approval Ratings Plunge, McSally Snaps at CNN Reporter

She's not a fighter pilot., as she claimed. She flew an A-10 Thunderbolt II, which is an attack aircraft - a light bomber. Martha McSally is a political coward and an empty flight suit. She will lose to Mark Kelly. Good riddance to her. She will probably find a comfy sinecure in the military-industrial complex.

Way to go Martha. If it's CNN it's a liberal hack. One must never forget how they foisted the Russia, Russia narrative on their loyal liberal faithful.

Re: “Danehy

Lying Tom wrote: "This came after I barred the playing of any music by woman-beater Chris Brown in the team bus."

And then Lying Tom wrote: “It remains, to this day, my favorite soul album of all time, just ahead of Marvin Gaye's What's Going On.”

Lying Tom won’t let his girl’s basketball team listen to Chris Brown because Chris Brown hit Rhianna, but he loves child rapist and serial wife/girlfriend beater/abuser Marvin Gaye.

Marvin Gaye never met a girlfriend or wife he didn’t beat, even putting a knife to Janis Hunter’s throat and threatening to kill her. Marvin Gaye had sex with the 15 year old niece of his wife and got her pregnant.

Chris Brown bad. Marvin Gaye? One of the greatest of all times.

Lying Tom, do you extol the virtues of Marvin Gaye’s music to your girls and play his music for them?

It is also on brand for Lying Tom that that out of all of the soul singers/groups of the last 60-70 years that he would choose a white band as his favorite soul group.

Re: “As Approval Ratings Plunge, McSally Snaps at CNN Reporter

McSally's remark to a reporter who is now a liberal hack says more about her than the reporter: she's as ugly on the inside as she is on the outside.

Re: “A Real shocker

Here's the ongoing issue with public utilities (or any service company): If we use less of their product, they need to raise the prices in order to keep shareholders happy and the balance sheet in the black. If we use more of their product, they need more money to expand capacity. In Tucson, we need to lean on Lea Marquez-Peterson to represent us and to stand up to these monopolies. One way is to increase the $ that TEP must pay when solar and wind power users sell their excess back to the utility. As battery storage capacity increases, and as we use more alternative energy sources, TEP will keep coming back to the table at the ACC for a rate hike.

Re: “As Approval Ratings Plunge, McSally Snaps at CNN Reporter

I like to prepare for the worst and hope for the best, but unless the Democratic Party gets their collective sh@t together, I fear four more years of a Trump administration, which brings me to why you should really check out Fox programing to see who's coming on and doing video interviews for potential positions in the current and future administration to include Martha, who may have her gun sights on a DHS or DoD position.

Regardless of what they say, Fox only has an audience of one that really matters and the parade of potential sycophants is never ending.

Meanwhile, China, Russia, North Korea and multiple non-state-sponsored terrorist organizations continue to plan our social, economic and military demise, as U.S. military personnel, equipment and funding is diverted to the Southern border propaganda art installation and vanity piece know as "The Wall" -- not to be confused with the Pink Floyd work of the same name, which was a cautionary musical story of what happens when a little boy is traumatized at a young age, finds a voice through popular music and attempts to foist a fascist vision on the masses while building a mental wall around his vulnerabilities and human emotions ...oh wait.

Re: “Congresswoman Ann Kirkpatrick Says She's Taking Leave of Office To Enter Alcohol Recovery Treatment

The Russian government resigned so Putin could install his cronies and change the constitution to remain in power after his term is up. The China Trade Agreement isn't an agreement. Its a blue print for a future trade agreement. Sheesh-Pick up a paper.
