Re: “When Everything You Care About is Gone

Goons Peabo?
That's a bit harsh. I think that the real goons are in the street hurting cops and damaging property.
My hands aren't "widdle" so I can't go around punching anyone.
As for happy, hell yes I'm happy. Been drunk since Tuesday night. I just trying not to rub it in too much. Who knows if promises will be kept anyway. I still remember 08 and 2012
quite vividly. I hated the smug, merciless lefties at work who rubbed it in for days. See how I am practicing "civility"? As for comedy, watching all of the TV pundits with their crybaby analysis and
condescending opinions gave me a years worth of belly laughs. They really should get over themselves. They blew it. Fire them like Fox did with Dick Morris in 2012. By the way, isn't Jonathon spelled Jonathan? Just checking. Wouldn't want you to get a
C- grade.

Looks like somebody is awful bitter here. You didn't want to make America great again?

Don't pull a muscle patting yourself on the back. That C- was generous. You're no Jonathon Swift. But enjoy the thumbs up. Got to get your thrills where you can.

Re: “When Everything You Care About is Gone

Sorry Peabo but it seems that fooling the left is not only funny, but easier than I thought. Just look at the thumbs up I got from my first post. And the media said the uneducated voted for Trump. Uh, 'fraid not.

And M.T.? C-
If you goons are going to run things, you better get your comedy chops down better than the weak tea you're serving up.

Re: “When Everything You Care About is Gone

Don't worry about me, Vinnie. I'm good. The country will survive. But I can't figure out why you goons aren't happier. I mean, come on, you got everything you wanted. Where's the joy? Were's the relief? All I see is more fear and anger. Just makes you wanna ball up your widdle hands and punch something, don't it?

Re: “When Everything You Care About is Gone

Wow Peabo,
You don't sound like a person who has been set free.
As for bigotry, read the hacked DNC e-mails.
As for sexual assault. ever hear of Bill Clinton.?
Anti-Semitism is a ridiculous stretch. unless you are referring to the DNC trashing of Bernie.
You sound a bit angry. Hurts a bit doesn't it? At least you are not out there with the Soros-rent-a-mobs.
Nice job with all those election taunts and preachy predictions.
Maybe it's time to broaden your horizons beyond Nate Silver and the
other paid party hack pollsters next time you talk trash.

Re: “When Everything You Care About is Gone

Come on you guys we can't keep this up. Donald Trump needs to see what is happening to our country and step down, so that Hillary can be the President. I think if the rioters promise to stop he would do it. We won't know until we try. Or maybe President Obama could just stay in office for the first four years and then let Hillary be appointed to finish his second term. The US Constitution was expected to be changed much more often than we have changed it. This looks like a good time. Even my sociology prof agrees with me.

Re: “When Everything You Care About is Gone

Spare me. Your holier-than-thou condescension is as ridiculous as it is nauseating. Have a good time on that higher ground of yours while it lasts, the truth will eventually set you free.

Re: “When Everything You Care About is Gone

Sorry Mr Peabo, but this election proved one thing. Americans are sick and tired of the accusations and name calling trying to keep people from saying what they believe. In most cases those making the claims are actually the ones doing it. You need to look no further than the Clinton Foundation and their lies and fraudulent schemes. But I have allowed you that space. Please do the same.

Re: “When Everything You Care About is Gone

How sanctimonious of you, Debra. As far as being known by the company that you keep, does that mean you approve of antisemitism, bigotry, and sexual assault? If not, you might want to do a little looking around yourself, it seems like you've got your head in the sand.

Re: “When Everything You Care About is Gone

Anne, what you believe may not actually be true. Part of your beliefs are based on media and personal biases from one or two experiences. Get to know some Trump supporters and ask them why they voted for Trump. Listen to, and think about, their answers. Try to put yourself in their shoes. They suffered 8 years hopelessly opposed to Obama and the lies that they were told.

Then ask yourself, "did those that opposed Obama, riot in the streets damaging someone elses property, and, encourage others to kill cops? Or could it be that most of these agitating protesters are paid for by a political movement or even a political party?

You might want to rethink some of your positions because you are known by the company that you keep.

Re: “The Strange Saga of Geronimo's Skull

Perhaps I can help shine some light on the subject at hand.

It has always been said that for one to own the head of a former great leader that said owner would become endowed with those similar genius/luck/skills as the leader himself. Now, correct me if I am wrong, but the Bush's have already owned 16 years of the total 200 years of presidency's in the USA - barring Jeb Bush doesn't somehow win another 16 years for them this one, single, shitty family, will have taken nearly 25% of the entire lifespan of our nations presidency's. It's more than just a dynasty. - I'd say the old lore of owning a great leaders skull is spot on, or at least the Bush's possession of the skull appears to have done them quite well and successful. :-o

I have a newspaper article from I believe the 1980's that speak more clearly about that of a leaked letter. The article clearly alleges 4 grave robbers (with photos) were those who took the skull. One of the four is none other than Prescott Bush.

Re: “Hell Yes! The 2016 Tucson Weekly Endorsements

I was a strong supporter of Sharon Bronson for the dozen-plus years I have lived in Picture Rocks. I supported her because without her active support we probably would not have the pool, BMX/Skate Park, various grants, and other amenities that have enhanced our community. But that was then.

Now she has lined up with forces that see the Avra Valley as a dumping ground for their money-making schemes. Look at:
-Her support of County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry and silence about his proposed Interstate 11 route through the Avra Valley that will hurt our communities, including the Tohono Oodham Nation, impede wildlife, and destroy ancient archaeological sites, while enriching millionaire real estate speculators like Wil Cardon and Don Diamond;
-Tens of thousands of dollars in campaign contributions from fat cat developers and corporate PACs;
-Her continued vocal support for the Sonoran Corridor leg of I-11 despite its rejection by the voters in the bond election; whatever happened to respecting the will of the people?
-With transportation logistics essential to connection with Mexico she ignores the job losses that Interstate 11 planners of integrative manufacturing expect with R&D in the US and manufacture and assembly in Mexico where ADOT expects wages to be lower than China; with stealing good American shipping jobs from the West Coast to the expanding Port of Guaymas; to crippling tourism at Saguaro Park, Desert Museum, Kitt Peak, etc.; to destroying existing jobs that serve the I-10 corridor;
-Her support for doubling a regressive county sales tax on us and increasing the state gas tax while lavishing tens of millions in tax breaks and subsidies on crony corporations.

Twenty years is long enough; its time for a change.

Re: “Hell Yes! The 2016 Tucson Weekly Endorsements

I support Cyndi Tuell for county attorney, she demonstrates a strong ethic to our community and important issues. I appreciate her dedication to environmental concerns pertaining to Pima county and the state of Arizona. Take a moment to learn about her campaign at
