Re: “Hemp Haters

In order for a overide the legislature would have to meet, in az they have a half time legislature so most are going home for legislative session has closed. This the reason AZ needs a fulltime legislature paid out of the marijuana dollars. The LDS CATHOLIC moral compass is having it,s last tilt off of true north this is the call to not look at the national headlines lets look HARD!! Our local represenatives if this is not promised then we need to send them home. Keep them poor they need us more

There is something stinky, talk about contributors MPP wont even disclose who their contributors were. I dont understand Adleson contributing a millon to defend his business with the existing MMJ law as opposed him trying to buy into by force the what he felt was extortion by the like of the junk bond salesman Holyoak and his BS prop 205. Unless Nick can list the expedures on both sides the argument is useless what the point ?

I am in Seattle right now come here often as well as Eugene. I can witness first hand and you want to see homeless issues Tucson is a paradise compared to this. So one thing nice is they don't pull the zoning BS where county gets to renegotiate if allowed while they take the tax dollars. Doing this from my phone sorry topos

Re: “Danehy

Obama was a good, not great, president. Given the nature of the disloyal opposition's obstructionism and thinly veiled contempt, he did a decent job and left office with higher approval ratings than Trump will ever enjoy. That said, I notice similarities in the policies of both these presidential polar opposites. If you (on both sides) can cast aside your selective outrage, consider:

Both Obama and Trump set out to deport millions of undocumented with the assurance "only the criminals will be targeted." Both lied, and to date Obama holds the records for deporting the most undocumented without criminal histories - a number in the high hundreds of thousands if not millions.

Both Obama and Trump administrations brokered arms deals to our enemy in Saudi Arabia to the tune of over $100 billion. Remember 9/11 and the Saudi export of virulent radical terrorist ideology through an expanding network of madrases.

Both the Obama and Trump administrations actively engaged in an assault on US public schools under the premise of school improvement with funding going largely to private sector leeches. Remember Arne Duncan? I do. Like Betsy DeVos? I don't.

So if we take a moment to set aside our partisan-based disgust with either the former or present president, it might be a good idea to begin considering what forces propel two presidents who could not be more different in style and demeanor from pursuing the same destructive objectives.
