Re: “Little Café Poca Cosa

Easily one of the two or three best Mexican restaurants in the Tucson area -- even with its hours being limited to early morning through lunch.

I've been to The Little Cafe Poca Cosa many times; early morning before work, and lunch. Every time I have been astonished at how quick the service is ... faster than most "fast food" restaurants; yet service up a big variety of expertly prepared Mexican foods. The chips are great, the salsa is great, the beans (not refried) are tasty with that luscious brown sauce that comes from knowing how to prepare them, the rice has just enough spice, they serve raw beets with their salad! (raw beets are one of the most healthy foods for your system), along with grated carrots and other tasty leafy green lettuce and such, the drinks are great (and the owner will even fix you a 're-fill' to go if you want!).

Yes, The Little Cafe Poca Cosa insists on being paid in cash ... there are big signs outside telling you this before you go in ... and it is easy to get cash, as there are a couple of ATMS within 50 yards or so of the entrance ... and it is something you will want to 'go out of your way' to do (get cash) in order to enjoy this astonishingly good Mexican food cafe.

(P. S. The owner does give everyone a hug when the leave, if they will let her. Very friendly. But, she's never tried to kiss me on the mouth. Whomever said that is making up a false story, just to make a wonderful restaurant look bad. This is a great place to eat.)

Re: “Mi Nidito

The most overrated Mexican restaurant in town. Living on its publicity from Clinton's visit decades ago. Long waits, poor service, commercial grade food. One reviewer says "authentic Tucson style Mexican food." What a joke. Well, it's Tucson style if you like Circle K style food. There is nothing remotely authentic Mexican about the stuff Mi Nidito serves, unless you are addicted to orange cheese and shredded lettuce on top of everything.

Re: “How's the New 'Anyone Can Teach in Arizona' Law Working Out So Far?

There is a real "market based solution" to the teacher shortage. The one party dictatorship in Phoenix famously touts "market based solutions"about everything else including an idiotic for profit mental health administrator. (Mentally ill and substance abusers famously respond to synergistic efficiencies). If teachers in Arizona districts were offered $70,000 to start plus full benefits how many candidates would you have? Voila, problem solved.

Re: “How's the New 'Anyone Can Teach in Arizona' Law Working Out So Far?

I have no idea what the merits of the above-referenced case may be, but it's certainly true that too many Arizonans are allergic to professionalism, proper process, and transparency. It is still "the Wild West" here, and like the lawless, chaotic frontier environment from which it evolved, it is a dangerous and damaging place to try to raise and educate children.

Re: “Battle for the Bud

I am a CPA who has given multiple seminars on the marijuana industry, including the accounting and taxation thereof.

In late April, I laid out the legislation needed to fix this problem, even the wording needed to exempt state legal businesses from the provisions of IRC 280(e), and also from the purview of other Federal Agencies such as ATF, etc. But, leaving those provisions in place as tools against the cartels and other major players. I asked Congresswoman McSally to forward to the proper committees.

Congresswoman McSally's office has not responded. I have also sent her correspondence concerning the Civil Forfeiture issue. Again, no response.

What frustrates me the most about this is that I have been a diehard supporter of hers, both financially and otherwise, since her first run for Congress.

Re: “Battle for the Bud

This is back to the congress funding the Rohrabacher-Farr amendment. Why is it we are not asking our representatives from Arizona their stance.

It can and must be the front issue on the midterm coming up. Arizona has 9 districts along with the pacific coast states Nevada, NM, CO that is total that is like 90 representatives. The eastern states that have medical and the US possessions congressional representatives there is another 70. This is enough to swing a majority to swing.

As it is now so much is being deleted, re-written, evaluated and arbitrated on so many fronts. In Having a representative such As McSally staying in the swamp keeping her head above water we need to find out if we have an effective tool there for our representative ? We should all send a letter of repeal of schedule 1 to our congressman. Raul Grijalva where is his stand ?

Does anyone really think with inflation around the corner, as rates rise, economy slows, fed cuts programs and funding. That the states with medical & recreational marijuana will take closure of a 25 billion cash flow for more debt to keep the failed drug war REALLY.

Re: “Danehy

You cannot squeeze out much sympathy for the guy in Detroit who was left adrift when the factory where his grandfather and father worked moved overseas. You say he should have gotten an education. But I know a lot of educated people who were left behind when technology changed and computers took their jobs. I spent a lot of classroom time learning to be a COBOL programmer - not such a hot field now. Then I spent years getting a master's degree in a field that was made obsolete by computers. I am, by no means, as badly off as many people who studied hard, worked hard, and were left in the dust.

If this had been in place Clinton couldn't have pardoned the pedophiles and Obama couldn't release all the drug dealers.

he might be on to something.

Re: “'Repeal and Replace' Cuts Schools' Medicaid Funding

Voters must participate in the Electoral Process and " Boot" the Republicans out of the US House of Representatives and Senate; locally this means Martha McSally and Jeff Flake. With this in place, we might have a chance to "boot" their Inveterate Lying Leader...Donald Trump!!!!. He acts as a Dictator which No understanding of our Tripartite Co-Equal Constitutional Political System. He represents a Serious Threat to our Social System, our Constitutionally Protected Freedoms and, as well, a Serious Threat to our National Security.

Perhaps as well, the Congressional Investigations currently under way, will uncover evidence of His/His Minions collaboration with his Friend and Mentor Putin, to justify his removal from Office.

The real problem in Arizona is the silent war going on between the locals and the many people who are moving to Arizona from other states. The Gov. of AZ will never admit to this. So I'll fill ya in.
Many of the people coming to live in Arizona are bigger than and more qualified, and educated than the typical Arizonian. This has outraged the locals who can not compete. Because of this the locals are attacking the out of state people and their efforts to live in Arizona. They are trying to get them to leave.
I have seen this with respect to all human matters in Arizona. Arizonians have become a nasty people with no respect for the law. Their administrators have permitted abuse of out of state children (you all remember that one) as well as other human abuses in all aspects of law and justice.
The teacher shortage in Arizona was caused by the locals in an effort to get the out of state people to leave. After the teachers left the Arizonians found the money for hiring teachers but claimed that they could not find qualified teachers. So what they did was take the money and hire unqualified locals
to cover the classroom.
Don't let these nasty little Neanderthals interfere with your child's right to an appropriate education.
