Re: “Democrat Kathy Hoffman Is Arizona Republicans' Enemy Number One

Still Civil.

What a laugh.

Try harder. Right now, you're failing with flying colours.

*Chuckle!* Still (but never was in the first place) Civil. *Chuckle!*

Re: “Democrat Kathy Hoffman Is Arizona Republicans' Enemy Number One

When I have something to say about policy, I will say it. Usually, I stop when it seems to me there is no policy point that still needs to be made to correct misleading propaganda and policy misrepresentations. Occasionally, I comment on the use of obscenities and insults because they illustrate the entrenched dysfunction in some Southern Arizona political factions which never manage to achieve their aim of using aggression to shut down reasonable disagreement, but only discredit the broader party and lame its effectiveness.

Not a big surprise that you're still being a worthless sock puppet troll. You stop, then I'll stop. Deal?

Re: “Democrat Kathy Hoffman Is Arizona Republicans' Enemy Number One

Looks like another worthless ad hominem attack from AZ/DC! Guess that intention of doing the commenting thing more civilly didnt last long. Not a big surprise.

In order to be able to vote intelligently, people need to understand policy differences, not refuse to acknowledge them and make broad, inaccurate generalizations about their political opponents. But policy misrepresentation and slander and obscenities aimed at opponents are a pretty large portion of what goes on in these comment streams. Davids discourse has the gloss of civility, but it also uses misrepresentations, overgeneralizations, and villainization of opponents. And when those techniques are used, it provokes anger among those misrepresented and villainized. To let some anger show while stating reasons why misrepresentation is unacceptable is not uncivil. Calling someone names IS uncivil. Try understanding the difference between the two, and giving reasons for policy preferences some time.

Re: “Democrat Kathy Hoffman Is Arizona Republicans' Enemy Number One

Yeah, "Constant Voter," there are actually substantive policy issues here that directly relate to "the education of little kids in school," like the Navajo kids on the New Mexico border. Some of us think those children and others like them should be able to apply the tax funds they save the state of Arizona when they choose not to attend AZ public schools in other schools, in New Mexico or elsewhere. It's not just about "foul" men who are prejudiced against a "decent, well educated professional woman with direct experience." And I write that as a decent, well-educated professional woman with direct experience teaching in Arizona schools. It would seem that well-educated professionals could honestly acknowledge the substantive policy issues and refrain from disparaging their political opponents as a class, with language like "male masses of political protoplasm."

Re: “Democrat Kathy Hoffman Is Arizona Republicans' Enemy Number One

When a decent, well educated professional woman with direct experience makes it to a state-level elected office, out comes the loud, foul derisive trolling by "conservative" men. And worse, these male masses of political protoplasm then seek to expand their stupid, vituperative BS to a whole range of issues beyond the education of little kids in school. Kids in school are not just political opponents for insults and loathing.

Vote them out.

Re: “Crowning Around

I became a fan of Downton Abbey TV series when I came across an episode, but mistakenly thought it was a movie. By the time I came to the end of that particular episode, which I believe was from the first season showing a garden party at Downton Abbey, and possibly a season-ending episode, I was annoyed because I would have to wait to see another episode and find out what happened next. But I was definitely hooked. I enjoyed the time that the story is set in, especially the lovely ladies , the clothes the stories of their loves and lives. Did I like everything that happened in this TV series ? No. But I certainly wanted to go on and see the film. I knew it was going to be tough for them to do justice to all the characters in a 2 hour movie, but I enjoyed the movie enough to see it twice, and liked it better the second time. I'm disappointed in Bob Grimm's review of the movie. It stands to reason you wouldn't understand what's going on in the film if you hadn't seen the six seasons of the television series, but it just seems petty to say that you'll never watch it, and then you tell a reader not to bother watching the film without knowing if they had seen the television series.

Hillary wants to save the democratic party from themselves and run again. Do you want to be saved by hillary? She says super delegates will nominate her on the second ballot.

Careful Captain. The USC doesn't mention welfare, health care, food stamps or retirement income.

Re: “Vote Yes on Prop 205

With a name like "Tucson Families Free and Together," you know you have to do your own research. Why would anyone vote NO for something like that? I know that this was an opinion piece, but some information on the actual Prop would have been nice. I urge you all to read the actual proposition and make your own INFORMED decision instead of thinking you are voting for rainbows and "togetherness."

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Phony Constitution

The second amendment does not mention bullets. When tulsi gabbard becomes president in 2020 or AOC becomes president in 2024 they can declare a national emergency and ban bullets. Bye bye nra!

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Feel The Endorsements

good there are pictures of biden, clinton and obama with putin some pictures shaking his hand. does that make them russian assets? you know it doesn't . I could smear hillary clinton if I were like you and others here by saying despite the fact that tulsi gabbard has served two tours in the middle east she still has a lower body count then hillary clinton ;but that is an untrue smear.

1. Pryor and Murphy are African Americans. (you should check out the last few Chapelle comedy specials)

2. Lying Tom Danehy is not a multicultural comedian.

3. Lying Tom Danehy is not joking when he blasts African Americans for how they speak, their choice of names, their political beliefs, and other aspects of African American culture that dont fit with his Old White Guy ideology.
