Re: “T.H.R.E.A T. Watch: Immigration, Libel, Treason

Rocky29, love the idea of Trump recording everything. It worked great for Nixon. What could go wrong, especially for a truth teller like Trump?

All I can tell you is the economy is rockin' and rollin' like there's no tomorrow. Wasn't it Clinton who said " it's the economy, stupid" Looks like he was right.

What a sad. dark, small minded isolated little country you live in, Wayne Olsen - believing in nothing good in the future.

You sound sad and very depressed.

Over sensitive people in life. If it was said. I am with the President. Start recording everything.
That's what I do daily when confronted with a potential "liar" situation. And, lying today, no matter who it is, seems to be the normal now. I suggest everyone to wear a body cam. U of A is great for lying, as we seen in the local papers, that confirm my own experiences as well.
Quality Control. Ends any question between any parties blaming each other. Like civilian and police. For instance.

Re: “The Skinny

Jeff Flake said, "... decrying "the personal attacks, the threats against principles, freedoms, and institutions, the flagrant disregard for truth or decency, the reckless provocations,...." Then he crawled RIGHT BACK into the swamp they vowed to drain.

It would be easier to just put in prison all those few who DON'T use or approve of MJ - cheaper too.

Re: “Out of Bounds

With all my heart and all my soul, I would like to think this is a huge exaggeration. But with all my mind, I'm quite certain this is just the tip of the iceberg.

Wayne, aren't you just a little bit ashamed of your attempts to say it didn't happen, that Trump didn't call some countries shitholes?

Re: “T.H.R.E.A T. Watch: Immigration, Libel, Treason

The Constitution of the United States provides the following for the removal of Donald Trump:

Article II, Section 4; 25th Amendment, section 4; and the 2nd Amendment.

Donald Trump is a Racist Neo Nazi, an Inveterate Liar, and Mentally Unstable. He is a threat to our Constitutionally Protected Freedoms and Nationally Security, and, as such, he MUST be Removed from Office Forthwith!!!

Re: “T.H.R.E.A T. Watch: Immigration, Libel, Treason

Germany just announced changes to their open border policy and will no longer allow chain migration to their country, and will enact stricter border security. And nobody called her racist.

Dick Durbin made the claim regarding Trump's words. Has anybody confirmed that Durbin is telling the exact verbiage? Two Senators have said that they did not recall him saying that. Upon closer questioning his marks appear to refer to the governmental leaders of the countries that are sending us their unwanted problem citizens. Cuba has done it, so has El Salvador and Mexico.

Let's not forget that even with the Russian investigation Durbin praised Putin in an attempt to marginalize Trump's Presidency.…

Has he ever tried this in the past?…

Re: “Governor, You're No Don Quixote.

It is too bad you can't be fair and honest. The Governor's speech was much more believable than the 50 years of Democratic promises to raise blacks out of poverty (by taking from others). And the analogy is perfectly timed for MLK Jr Day on Monday. The difference is that education has plenty of money, it's just that so much of it is wasted, as is our road money to repair potholes. So, politicians continue to lie to us, because some have a history of believing it.

Re: “Tucson Salvage

I love the way we are transported to the bar as readers, the palpable sense of place. The tone the author strikes - not too reverent and with zero trace of pity. Just compassion, subtlety, appreciation. A gentle and humane read for this new year.

Re: “The War on Weed

Read "Safer Arizona" proposed initiative.
This will rally the wagons in defiance.
As a user, patient and a proponent of medical Marijuana. I have the assets, medical history I wont have a problem getting two specialists Internists neurologist to sign have a notarized statement.

I hope they do this with all dispensed opiates and stimulates. After all if they had one doctor responsible for the other and the patient signing off there would be no drug problem right. PROBLEM SOLVED IT WAS SO SIMPLE.

If you get a MMJ card you lose your right to sit on a jury as you are committing a federal crime. Attorney's CANNOT advise you how to obtain or possess marijuana just quote the law. If they do in Arizona they can and will be disbarred for advising how to commit federal crime REALLY. Arizona supreme ruling for those members of the state bar.

The previous US Atty was married to a Pima County Sheriff admin is it a wonder the seizure RICO monies went to pencils, ballroom gowns, toy drones, travel and god knows what was grifted. Called
"hmm" Education from the reserve slush fund. We do know about the Gagnepain murder Radtke prosecution. With Sessions and the like of what Pima county elects. Can you say Aboud stealing the judge test scores and at 70's years old and the old line "I was joking" still and hearing cases. Sessions is playing right into the funding of the BLUE machine right here. Funding cuts the PCAO and PCSO needs these stolen monies and the line "We steal so they dont have to, Nothing left".

Both the Arizona Dispensary Association (ADA) and the Pima County Sheriff Office (PCSO) are of he belief it is possible to allow and control illegal activity so it dont get out of hand Market control.

So with all of this on the local scene is it a wonder that the powers looking to sustain their livelihood are looking for new opportunities? Really is that not human nature, as is reason I sit and type this useless dribble to a sea of idealistic mutants that try and have two columns for the stoned. Democrat/Republican most look at it like recycle and trash average projected TUSD analogy.

SESSIONS, WILL BE GONE SOON HE IS JUST TRYING TO PLAY INTO THE OLD POWERS OF GRAFT FOR SUPPORT AND IT IS NOT THERE. This old endless unaccountable pits of government like education and protection. The lack of one of these means more monies need to be spent the more the failure the more the monies. WE heard the stores before. ( I am a b-----cract because fear, I fear because I am a b-----crate)

Re: “How to Raise a Billion Dollars For Schools Without Raising Sales Taxes

With such a large percentage of the student population continuing to be made up of illegal immigrants or children of illegal immigrants, as well as legal immigrants, there is no way we will ever keep up with student funding. It's not going to happen.
We've chosen a low-wage, high-immigration policy for our economy and are reaping the "benefits".

Re: “The Age of "WTF?!"

If there was you would be even more ignorant of the facts:

South Koreas president said Wednesday that President Trump deserves big credit for renewed talks between South and North Korea, and that Mr. Trump has offered to negotiate personally with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.
It could be a resulting work of the U.S.-led sanctions and pressure, President Moon Jae-in told reporters. I think President Trump deserves big credit for bringing about the inter-Korean talks.-Washington Post

Re: “Everybody in Arizona Is For Education

No Frances I mean unaccountable as in TUSD. Who has actually held them accountable for any of the malfeasance the past 25 years? They have damaged the labor force in Pima County. It's no wonder the voters say NO to bond elections.
I have more trust in the good parents that take part in the child's education by moving them to alternatives. They are voting with their feet. That's all they had left.
