Re: “The Skinny

In all truthfulness if you searched your heart of hearts can you actually say that the Republicans in congress have ever done anything for "the people". On the other had the Democrats (LIBERALS) (Progressives)fought to stop child labor, helped to establish the hours of the work day and the work week, demanded a minimum wage, started Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid as well as many more benefits to the population of this country. Everything I have mentioned has become targets for the Republicans to try to eliminate when they are elected to public office. Republicans run on a ticket of hate , destroy, and fake promises that never materialize. They are too insensitive to the needs of the citizen, too cheap to help the common man , and too intent on being re-elected to do anything constructive. The current administration in Washington is the epitome of the best that the Republicans will ever offer. Once they have dismantled our Affordable Health Care Act, weakened Medicare and Medicaid to the point of collapse, given their revered 2% of the population the MILLIONS and BILLIONS that they rightfully deserve, then you will see them go after Social Security. They chose their leader well because he is as similar to Satan as you will ever find in another human here on earth and his compassion for other beings other than his progeny could be measured with a nano-meter. For all of you dim-witted nit-wits who continue to vote for the Republican scourge you can thank yourself when the minimum wage is what you will work for, health care is whatever you can afford to pay , retirement is when you fall over dead at your work station regardless of your age, and "the pursuit of happiness" has been removed from the Constitution.

Re: “The Skinny

Dearest Commenters, this is what redistricting does. We need two representatives for two different sets of voters (rural and urban), not one split in half. It's time to be fair to voters, instead of to the parties responsible for this.

Re: “The Skinny

Political races are so much easier now.

Used to, we had to pay attention to the candidates and the party platforms and a myriad of other factors in making our decisions.

Now, it is all boiled down to who can raise the most money, which is appropriate since nothing -- absolutely nothing -- matters anymore, not the candidates, not the issues, not ethics, not the future, just the money.

Too bad there is not the same level of outrage over what our so-called representative government has become as there is about the latest news out of Hollywood; After all, they both concern someone with wealth and power f-ing over anyone they want with impunity.

Re: “The Skinny

McSally's main vulnerability is that she is an open borders Republican. Otherwise, Ann is a good campaigner but will be considered an outsider. As for the rest, none of the liberals above have much of a chance in that district with the same old "free stuff" campaign.

I understand mourning makes you lash out inappropriately but this farce is not excusable. The President of the United States called you to offer condolences that in itself is an honor with sincerity. Most folks receive a letter hand delivered by a military person you got both.

WHY IS THIS ISSUE NOT BEING ADDRESSED ON RUSSIA
Subject: mueller FSB

Special prosecutor Mueller flew to Moscow & gave the FSB 10 grams of highly enriched uranium HEU in 2009 at Hillarys request.

1. Hillary was paid $35,000,000 from the Russian company Rusnano. One of the founders of Rusnano is Vladimir Putin.
2. Hillary was paid a $500,000 speaking fee from the Russian company Renaissance Capital.
3. Hillary sold 1/5 of all U.S. uranium rights to Russia.
4. The company that bought the uranium rights subsequently donated $145,000,000 to Hillary's charity....
5. Powerful Russian officials such as the Mayor of Moscow, business tycoon, and various government officials donated millions of dollars to Hillary's charity.

Re: “The Skinny

NOTE CBS President Ben Rhodes: http://conservativerevival.com/latest-news/former-obama-aide-suspected-of-betraying-americans-in-the-worst-way/

IF YOU HAD A HUNCH THE NEWS SYSTEM WAS SOMEWHAT RIGGED AND YOU COULDNT PUT YOUR FINGER ON IT, THIS MIGHT HELP YOU SOLVE THE PUZZLE. ABC News executive producer Ian Cameron is married to Susan Rice, National Security Adviser. CBS President David Rhodes is the brother of Ben Rhodes, Obamas Deputy National Security Adviser for Strategic Communications. ABC News correspondent Claire Shipman is married to former Whitehouse Press Secretary Jay Carney ABC News and Univision reporter Matthew Jaffe is married to Katie Hogan, Obamas Deputy Press Secretary ABC President Ben Sherwood is the brother of Obamas Special Adviser Elizabeth Sherwood CNN President Virginia Moseley is married to former Hillary Clintons Deputy Secretary Tom Nides. And now you know why it is no surprise the media usually goes very easy on Hillary's & Obamas many errors. Update 2 left Ya think there might be a little bias in the news?

Re: “The Skinny

McSally is nothing more than a Repubtard Trumpuppet who would support an ax wielding psychotic killer as long as that cretin kept the Repubicunt dogma to suppress the poor, Black, and brown voters, eleminate or cripple universal health care, and eventually push Social Security to control by the states where it could be dismantled leaving the elderly penniless, starving, and broken in their supposed "Golden Years". If McSally and the Republicans maintain control of every part of the government I demand that they pass a bill for assisted suicide so that we, who have hearts and souls and want to see our fellow man succeed , have an option not to continue in this farcical government of the people, by the people, and for the people.

Re: “The Skinny

McSally a "moderate Republican?" That's a joke. She's voted in lock step with POTUS-T 93% of the time. Her prior stand on health care & now on Trump's tax plan prove she's no moderate.

Re: “The Skinny

To call Mary Matiella an accountant for the Federal Government does her a huge disservice. If you go to her Wikipedia page you will see that the person you call a Federal Government Accountant oversaw a $4 billion annual budget for the National Forest Service as our NFS Chief Financial Officer. She then was the Assistant Secretary of the Army and retired from that position with the civilian equivalent of a 4 star general. A Tucsonan from the age of 6 weeks I think you need to give credit where credit is due.
Meet Mary and you will see she is the one we need to represent CD2

Re: “The Skinny

EMILY's list is so off base. Kirkpatrick is not running to represent 'Arizona'; she lost that race to McCain last year. She is running the represent CD2 which includes most of Tucson and other parts of Southern Arizona. She moved here to run for this seat because she thinks it is something she can win, she did not move here because she cares about Tucson or the interests of our diverse region. She is a carpetbagger coming to Tucson with Washington D.C. PAC money and outside national interests and ambitions... sounds a lot like McSally. Let's give the other candidates, including Matiella a fair shake Tucson! They deserve to be heard and considered, even if they are being ignored by the party and D.C. money.

Re: “The Skinny

Making it easier for the BP hiring meant dropping the lie detector test, if I recall correctly... letting those who couldn't pass some psych checks get in easier... much needed since we had already started scraping the bottom of the barrel under Clinton. The article could well have started off with the last two paragraphs... recapping some of the batshit laws she tried to get passed...

Re: “The Skinny

I was struck by the comment that she performed better than expected during her first term. Were their expectations low because she was a woman? But better than whomever? Not currently impressed by her general performance over all in the interests of the non-military middle class community in her district. What exactly has she done to make our lives better?

Re: “The Skinny

" One loosened hiring requirements for veterans who wanted to work for the Border Patrol, while another allowed WWII-era servicewomen to be buried at Arlington National Cemetery." Wowee! And consequently the quality-of-life of McSally's constituents has improved immeasurably. Let's hear it from the family's of the WWII-era sevicewomen [great grandmothers] that live in McSally's district. I'm a veteran and only 82, maybe I should consider applying for a job with the Border Patrol. And we pay her salary?
