Re: “Home is a Tenacious Heart

This is one of the best stories I've ever seen from you. I was raised in Tucson on the South side and live in New Mexico.

It's really quite simple. If you disagree with Tom. You're an idiot.

Re: “Danehy

Plutocracy (Greek: , ploutos, 'wealth' + , kratos, 'rule') or plutarchy, is a form of oligarchy and defines a society ruled or controlled by the small minority of the wealthiest citizens.
-- Wikipedia.

This nation has never been a true democracy, but is a republic that uses elected representatives of the people to serve their will. Unfortunately, it was relatively easy to pay for and buy representatives -- from both major parties -- than to have to buy every individual voter.

Re: “Danehy

Allen P?

Wake the fuck up!

What kind of drugs are you taking?

Trump hasn't secured jack shit.

Also, history will prove this asshat to be a complete FAILURE!

You know, history.

As in about 3 years.

They want their trite cliche back!

Oh, lookie me, I'm using synonyms in the same sentence.

Either way, congratulations to you and your crew Jim!

I'm sure that you'll make a better editor than the the last two. Especially the one right before you.

Re: “Over Stepping Bounds

OK, let's try this one more time.... NO ONE in the U.S. Border Patrol can legally give anyone "permission" to operate contrary to the law, regardless of any perceptions that No More Deaths organizers have or because of some highly-questionable unsigned written agreement.

Anyone providing aid, other than U.S. Border Patrol personnel in the course of their legal duties, is as guilty of exploitation by providing false hope as the Coyotes and smugglers who use these people for monetary gain, as opposed to self-serving do-gooders who get a warm and fuzzy feeling -- and a slight thrill -- from circumventing "the man" and the laws of this country.

Nevertheless, if people are determined to provide aid and comfort to illegal border crossers, may I suggest that you set up your desert aid stations on the south side of the border and see how you are received by the Mexican authorities.

Re: “RIP, Author and Activist Kathryn Ferguson

Kathryn was worthy of the utmost respect. She helped humanity. And Mr. Again and Denise Allen...what have you done lately to make the world a better place???? Typing hate on the internet is not exactly honorable.

Re: “Danehy

More name calling and blind blame. Is that really who you are? Look at reality. 40 years of the EPA and water is not fit to drink? A global warming hoax that is now being admitted to. Doubling of the national debt with no measurable improvements. Profit is not a four letter word, but rather an opportunity to compete and develop more efficient services and improve technology.

If government were effective they would not have been tempted to legalize gambling on reservations to fund the Indian nation.

That is hundreds of years of failure. Trump has already secured a historical position far ahead of the last four presidents.

Re: “Danehy

Allen P ... the former family members and ex-friends turned on me, when they voted for tRump, who is methodically destroying much of what is very important to me. Bolstering the 'for profit' health care industry, liquidating public land, reversing environmental protection, cutting public school funding, and a long list of other attacks on government policies that help people. Government is not bad. There are many policies that benefit the majority of people in the United States. tRump is the one who fooled voters. His lies are legion. Our children should note just how devious this sonofabitch is and how he has destroyed the United States standing in the world.

Re: “Danehy

great article! - another point is the amount of disposable time that they spend on entertainment - they make choices - be entertained or spent that time becoming more informed. Look at many people in their 40's, 50's, 60's and older - their education stopped when they finished school - and now they get it from for profit media - being informed is not a priority - and that attitude is passed down to their children. Granted, not everyone - but definitely the majority that I see.

Re: “Danehy

Disowned family members and turned on friends in a country that allows freedom of expression. Take a listen to yourself. That is pitiful that you place so much hope for your happiness on government. How did you let that happen?

The name calling is so childish and ignorant. Another one educated into ignorance? Pay attention children, this is the death of the democratic party, that no longer has the ability to fool voters.

Re: “Danehy

Mr. Danehy wrote another outstanding column. I agree 100% about talking to the fools who voted for tRump. In fact, I disowned family members who did and withdrew from friendships, some decades long, with idiots who voted for the rotten sonofabitch tRump. The cult of ignorance leads to completely mistaken opinions and votes that are so far fetched, only the ignorant could possibly believe them ... like thinking tRump is going to help anyone other than the rich get richer, particularly himself and his spawn.

Re: “High-Flying Chicken

Our tax dollars at work! Now Tucson has a true competitor to The Thing out east on I-10, although in terms of weirdness it will still have to compete with the Pima County Board of Soup Advisors.

That's just it Killian, they don't. Except in this man's confused and angry world. One of these has already turned their elitist ideas into gun fire.

They need to stop thinking they have all the answers because it is clear they don't.

Re: “Danehy

I have trouble with your description of Trump supporters and the people I know who support him. With the exception of my hairdresser who thinks Hillary was 'too deceitful' to vote for, they are educated, knowledgeable people. One is a nurse practitioner, one is a Certified Nurse Anesthetist, one is a teacher, and one is a former state department employee. They all have high-paying jobs and graduate degrees. How do they fit in with the stereotype of people we have of Trump supporters as uneducated, underemployed yahoos?
