Re: “The Skinny

That is the same argument that Palin was attacked for during the ACA debacle. How coincidental you make it once again.

Re: “The Skinny

They say you should judge people not by what they say but by what they do. If that's true, based on the contents of the American Healthcare Act the people in power wanted to see the poor -- both young and old -- just die.

Of course, no one will come out and say that, but there is this elitist attitude in Washington that people without means are not real people if they were, they could just go out and get jobs or stop buying "luxury" items such as cellphones and spend their money taking care of themselves.

Those in congress and the senate talk about eliminating entitlements, even when they are the most entitled class out there. People in the military have to spend at least 20 years to retire with benefits. These guys just need to spend four years to get a full retirement with benefits.

How many former senators, congressmen and congresswomen are out there living off of those entitlements? How much could be saved if they took a cut? We'll never know because despite what they say, what they do is take. Perhaps if they had to live within the meager means that most Americans do, they would begin to see the choice they have given us is get rich or get dead.

"When a man tells you that he got rich through hard work, ask him: Whose?"

Re: “The Skinny

Thank you sgsmith. That is exactly why voters will not approve a tax increase. And just so that you are fully informed, Regina Romero has come up with a scheme to recreate the Santa Cruz riverflow for the westside. Any wonder how it will be funded?

Grand Canyon University should have been built on the El Rio Golf Course. But instead she has visions of "urban riparian areas" dancing in her head. Will she spray the stagnant pools with DDT to kill the mosquitos?

But go ahead and get the Fire and Police Unions to beg for the money so she can take it. The constant drip drip drip of lousy leadership. This community is choking in it.

Re: “The Skinny

The problem with getting people to vote "yes" on taxes in Tucson is they have been burned too many times by politicians who trot out the most noble reasons for rate increases and end up spending the money raised on the most ignoble pet projects, which they could never have gotten approved by the voters, not to mention (although I'm mentioning it) the temporary taxes that Tucson has enacted in the past that just kept being assessed well past the time they were supposed to have ended -- oops.

I agree that our police and fire departments need the tools necessary to accomplish their vital missions, but if the city's political leaders pull another bait and switch it will be a long, long time before they see voter approval for anything, which means they will have to conjure up the mysterious methods they used to get the RTA approved. To this day, I haven't met ANYONE who voted yes on the RTA, yet it still passed.

Re: “The Skinny

Just in case the post above gets removed, and I imagine it will because Wrong, Again is a really sensitive guy, I'll be a little cleaner with this one.

Time to grow up and be a real Christian Wrong, Again, not the fake one you've been displaying online.

Dismiss your diaper fetish, walk up the stairs and out of mama's basement. Your constant presence is aging her well beyond her years. She figured you would've moved out like your siblings did well over 30 years ago.

Comment on websites...hell, grow some stones and establish a viewable account on TW, you know, like the one I have...but learn to be cordial. Go ahead, Google it. C-O-R-D-I-A-L. I understand, words that relate to being kind are tough for you. This is why it's time to step up.

Then, seek the therapy you so desperately need. Maybe you'll learn that the term "liberal" isn't akin to "Satan". Maybe your racism and misogyny will fade away. Maybe you'll quit referring to people as snowflakes, fruitcakes, illegals and gordas. Maybe, just maybe.

Get the help you sooo desperately need ASAP. It's never too late...until it's too late.

Re: “The Skinny

Nice try bitch.

I have an account, which everyone can click on to see my history.

Being the chicken shit you are, you will never do that.

And what is it about you and diapers Wrong, Again.

Seek therapy quickly, you're slipping down the slope harder than ever.

Re: “The Skinny

Sorry, but if you're blaming me for deleting a post, not some Australian hard blues rock band, then you must get your head out of your ass and realise 3 things:

1) The comment I posted at 9.39 am was the last time I was here to do anything besides the comment above. I never even read this deleted comment.

2) I am NOT an employee of TW. I have no power to remove commentary, which is fortunate for you. Also, I am not able to report on a comment which I never even read.

3) I will call you a racist, bigot, hypocrite and fake Christian because you're all that and so much lower. You prove it in all your hate filled posts, of which all should be removed, so it doesn't shock me that one got removed today.

If you want to be a true Christian, start now. Look in the mirror and see who you really are. Obtain some real Christian values and beliefs.
There's nothing wrong with having a difference of opinion, but when you act like a disrespectful asshole about it, you will get called out on it and possibly have your ill commentary removed. Now get back in your safe space bubble before mommy notices you're missing.

Re: “The Skinny

No hate or liberalism here.

Just dog tired of Wrong, Again's fake Christian hatred.


He would definitely not approve of the in(s)ane rants of a major internet troll like Wrong, Again.

Re: “The Skinny

stalecloud - "I find it hard to believe they deleted a post that wasn't overly dubious in some way"

Mari and AC/DC are your typical hate filled liberals, dubious to them is anything they don't agree with. They routinely call those that disagree racists and bigots, trait they exhibit every time they open their mouths.

I will tell you this, I documented how Obama hates whites, how Jim Nintzel is nothing more than a white guilt liberal and that Raul Grijalva, the militant MEChA devotee is the most racist and bigoted person there could be for Nintzel to profile him as a standard calling others racists.

And I asked if Mr. Mayor has apologized when he referenced the threats against Jewish Community Centers as increasing since Trump's election and therefore his supporters were responsible. As sleaze ball a statement as when liberals accused Tea Party of being responsible for the shooting of Giffords and that he seems perfectly content with Tucson being the 5th poorest in the country.

Re: “The Skinny

You are being played DRW. I would advise them to use our tax dollars that have been contributed. They may have a problem with priorities,...but I don't. TPD and TFD can't get to the action of they are stick in a rut. Just like our City Council.

Re: “The Skinny

What, Again I thank you for answering but I find it hard to believe they deleted a post that wasn't overly dubious in some way. Considering the posts of yours that don't get deleted, I'm sure it was a humdinger. Maybe try again?

Re: “The Skinny

I noticed that same story in the WSJ. There really is no conclusive evidence to any real facts surrounding the findings. My own speculation centers around depression, deep dissatisfaction with career/income dreams and war.

The sad facts about suicide is that it, much like drug use is happening in bad and good economies.

People seem to have lost their anchor which for most is faith in a higher being. Someone to answer to.

Re: “The Skinny

What, Again: I'm curious and concerned why you felt the need to post a link to an article about a rise in death among whites. How did you feel this was relevant? Are you concerned about the future of white people? Do you think Obama secretly poisoned white people, and we're now seeing the effects? Do you truly think "liberals" are happy about this news? I genuinely would like your (truthful) answers.

Re: “The Skinny

Poorest for populations over 500,000, NOT overall.

Plus the article was published over 2 years ago.

Get out of the basement and get some fresh air. Your posts are as stale as the basement air you're huffing.

Re: “The Skinny

Bengal Good:

Wrong, Again is a fake Christian who loves fake news and he's probably the fakest personality you'll ever encounter on this site.

I imagine he would be a sleazy used car salesman if his mama didn't tolerate his stank ass stankin' up the family basement for the last 40+ of his physical (not mental, check out what he posts for proof) adult years.

I wouldn't necessarily label all Republicans as being too stupid or paranoid schizophrenic narcissistic bigots with delusions of grandeur...but the pest known as Wrong, Again definitely fits into all of those categories.

Re: “The Skinny

Republicans say the word , "LIBERAL" like it was some filthy disease ridden animal but they are too stupid to comprehend that Jesus, Jefferson, Washington, Kennedy and Franklin D. Roosevelt were all LIBERALS otherwise there would be no PROGRESS in the United States or the world because Republicans are content to keep everything the same forever or regress into the past. Republicans are basically paranoid schizophrenic narcissistic bigots with delusions of grandeur and you can quote me on that.
