Re: “Danehy

"The unions financial support of Democrats is not new or unusual. What is news though is the extent to which unions have gone to hide the aggressively partisan nature of their expenditures."

This Forbes article does a better job of explaining the NEA's actions as it pertains to the use of membership dues.

I'm not sure why they go to such lengths to hide it.

Re: “Justice of the Peace Candidate Keith Bee II Talks About Judge Training

Washington, Jefferson, Madison, Adams, Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, FDR, John Kennedy and so on. All career politicians. Term limits are a red herring, it's who you vote for in the first place that matters. Do that right and you'll have a good government.

Mandatory 8 year or less term limits are needed for all judges in the USA beginning at the top.

Re: “Welcome Back Wildcats! UA Welcomes 7,900 New Freshmen

The vast majority of the incoming Freshman are under 21, as are most UofA Students. They are at the UofA for a University Education and NOT for Partying, with the use of Alcohol, before and after Football Games. The UofA Must reevaluate it's support for a Questionable Athletic Program.

So in the meantime....Let the Bacchanalia begin on the Mall before the Football Game on September 1st (Tailgating) and continue in the Stadium during the Game to insure the these Fans "enjoy themselves", i.e., getting Drunk and staying Drunk!!

The UofA is ALL about MONEY!!! This decision is Irresponsible; putting at risk both Students and those exposed to these Drunk Fans Driving Home!!!

One of the Primary Responsibilities of the UofA President, Dr. Bobby Robins, is the Health and Safety of UofA Students!! His Silence is deafening for not speaking out in opposition to Drinking Alcohol during the pre-game Bacchanalia on the Mall and in the Stadium.

In fact, Dr. Robbins, along with the Board of Regents, must Prohibit the Use of Alcohol anywhere on the UofA Campus.

Re: “Danehy

@ Hanky Panky: the NEA cannot (by law) force membership dues on any member in AZ. You are not "helping people" to understand anything when you are either factually incorrect or willfully ignorant.

Re: “Danehy

I think it was one of the two geologist that used to frequent the comments that talked about the sheep on the tailings.

And yes, the sheep are thriving on several mine sites.

Re: “Police Dispatch

Police insiders say this has become common occurrence because of the proliferation of drugs and the rampant abuses. Compassion can only go so far when the officers safety, well being and even lives are violated from someone on meth or crack. Drug abusers are costing Mexican and Central Americans their lives.

Re: “Fee Rein

It seems so egotist to think this AZDHS/MMJ legalization is a complete positive to the citizen and youth of Arizona. The mind set of I can get mine pay a tax educate the kids. Yea head is in a constant vapor of sativa.

Whats lost in getting a medical card is the right to sit on a jury and hear marijuana prosecuted cases. Black civil rights came from blacks not finding lost's of Blacks guilty. So any marijuana case that goes to trial automatic conviction. Getting a card guaranties marijuana convictions it's that simple. But hey I got my card he can get his what a putz view.

Lost is the anonymity of use much like alcohol tobacco gambling sex. NO getting a card says I am an addict which puts all kinds of limits on future education employment credit rating insurance etc etc. But hey I got my card they can get theirs putz view.

As it is now the legal distributed marijuana through dispensaries make some patients suppliers to others. I have seen it happen like adultery it happens, Like alcohol causes 60% of auto deaths and 80% domestic violence it happens. However those are diminishing because of ready supply that seems to be working.

We the patient such as myself need to realize we are in a holding pattern here. My 70 years of watching develop says, The hippie advocate with patchouli oil, tie dye, and dreads are not the advocates of the patients.

What will happen will be national standards across the board on recreational. All states that pass to legalize will comply medical will allow stronger but regiment prescribed no license needed

Re: “Police Dispatch

This man obviously has serious mental health concerns. What is so entertaining about this? Please share about something else for a change. Perhaps you could report how the officers are attending educational seminars to enhance their compassion in responding to this type of situation.

Re: “Danehy

I would like to clarify something. I do not object to the initiative process generally. My concern is that it is being used to replace the legislative process. It is a good check on the legislature, a way to stop some wildly crazy act that is either corrupt or self serving in some way. The ESA legislation that was forced on to a ballot prop was neither of these. It was a modest expansion of existing law that was working well. An example of another inappropriate use of the ballot prop is one that increases income tax to fund education. Increasing education can be a good thing, but this particular ballot prop is so poorly worded that it has already drawn a number of legal challenges, and ballot props are very poor ways to enact taxing or spending bills. They are virtual constitutional amendments that are virtually impossible to modify in any significant way. Hanky Panky is correct in that income taxes are not taxes on wealth, they are taxes on earned income; earned income is not the same are interest income or capital gains which are taxed separately. In other words, income taxes are taxes on productivity.

Mr. Small, Please provide a link to your bighorn sheep article. If that is not possible, maybe you could supply the name of the publication and an approximate date.

Re: “Banner - UMC Phoenix and Tucson Named Best Hospitals

Cleveland Clinic ranked #2 nationally, not Banner Phoenix. Mayo in Phoenix ranked #11. I didnt see any Banner hospital in the top 20. Use the actual rankings, not a Banner press release to write the story next time.
