Re: “The Skinny

Republicans always trash big government when the Democrats are in power. But wait. the government is the largest under the Republicans, larger debt too. Republicans are great at switching blame to anyone others then themselves. It like Trump blaming Obama for everything when he is President and has the power. But I understand him, being mentally ill as experts are now saying outloud.

Re: “The Skinny

Isn't it funny how Grijalva and fellow travelers are never concerned about the environmental impacts of drug smuggling and illegal immigration across the unsecured border?

- Migrants and smugglers dump an estimated 2,000 tons of trash and human waste in the borderlands every year - most of it in areas where it is very difficult to remove. (See

- Migrants and smugglers had cut an estimated 1300 miles of wildcat trails in the borderlands as of 2006. (See

-Illegal aliens and smugglers regularly set wildfires, both to summon aid or to distract CBP, destroying hundreds of acres of vegetation a year. In fact, migrants are suspected of causing many of southern Arizona's most devastating fires of the last few years (Horseshoe 2, Monument, etc.). (See

Would a wall have some environmental impact? Sure. But so would doing nothing. Let's try to keep some perspective on both sides of the issue.

Re: “The Skinny

I see that you have a thing for crusty beards honey! You should get together with your friend azpaul and play beard buddies. You guys can play guessing games where you try to see the remains of last nights dinner and walk into walls trying to figure that out. Good job sweety.

Re: “The Skinny

Mr Grijalva need look no further than Venezuala to see how socialism ends, and it is not well. Once an oil rich country, able to develop all types of social safety nets has collapsed into poverty and the people are rioting in the streets.

They have become the "new" Greece. Take a good look at socialism. Don't turn away. This is the new Democratic Party.

Re: “The Skinny

Transparency, complying with established rules, regulations and laws you do realize you are talking about Donald Trump, right?

I suggest you step outside your politically-correct liberal bubble and start paying attention to the new reality encompassed by the post-fact, climate-change and science denying, nouveau barbarian horde that is occupying Washington intent on dismantling, purging and "decontaminating" anything and everything that came into contact with the former administration.

"Progress, far from consisting in change, depends on retentiveness. When change is absolute there remains no being to improve and no direction is set for possible improvement: and when experience is not retained, as among savages, infancy is perpetual. Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it. In the first stage of life the mind is frivolous and easily distracted, it misses progress by failing in consecutiveness and persistence. This is the condition of children and barbarians, in which instinct has learned nothing from experience."

George Santayana (1863 -1952) "The Life of Reason, Volume 1, 1905"

Re: “The Skinny

There is absolutely no evidence that the Republicans want to "dismantle" public education so enough of the Obama-Dem lies, thank you very much. The vouchers make it possible for poor students stuck in bad public schools to get what they think will be a better education elsewhere, so what is the objection to that?

Re: “The Skinny

What would you know about IQ?

Your IQ dips into the negatives.

It is not, and it will never be your decision, unless it's your child.

If your simple mind can't comprehend that, there is no hope for you.

But hey, it's alright, you lost hope years ago.

Quit making the personal business of others your own.

Re: “The Skinny

Then I'm correct ac, dc, you don't have the mental capacity to answer the question nor the intellectual integrity.

I'll repeat it for you.

How many of those children with beating hearts make it out alive?

I'll even give you the answer because obviously it's way past your IQ.

Re: “The Skinny

I answered your question.

It's NONE of your business when it comes to abortion. Unless it's your child.

It's between a woman and her doctor, sometimes the father in special circumstances.

What would you know about a beating heart anyways? Your heart obviously stopped frozen cold years ago.

Beat it and take your fake Christianity with you.

Re: “The Skinny

retrorv - "I thought you were against using tax dollars to underwrite private ventures."

Have no clue where you got that. Governments are by far the least efficient organizations to deliver services.

Lots of trigger words in your post so let me interpret for you.

"Rich parents..." You really mean white people. And I can see why you're scared to death by that. When it comes to Sunnyside and TUSD that would mean you might as well be in Nogales, MX.

Re: “The Skinny

Not your choice Wrong, Again.

The choice is between a woman and her doctor.

Get a hobby and quit harassing people which you have no business to harass.
