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: “Think of the Children

The zoo tax is corporate welfare. It boggles my mind how one could think its a progressive change. This publication has endorsed three sales tax increases this year. When will they say enough is enough?

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: “Ousting Opioids

We don't have to worry about the opioid epidemic in Pima County. Ray Carroll mailed me a letter saying that said he has committed his life to ending that problem. Then he took an appointed position, by Huckleberry Hound, as Justice of the Peace in Green Valley. Commitment over?

Re: “Ousting Opioids

That is the same structure of profits marketing. With removal of community responsibility by removing medical mandates. Building pill mills with some state standards different from others ? Quazi community front people that are dependent on monies from the market and restricted access. HMM sound like prop 205?

Re: “Libraries Trump Hate

Pima County is funding the Pima County Public Library system to the tune of $29,000,000 a year which is very generous of the property tax owners of Pima County. The city of Tucson contributes not a dime to the running of the county libraries and the State Library federal funding function is just a fraction of money spent on public libraries in this country. Funding is not the problem here folks and I should know I worked for the Tucson Public Library - Pima County Public Library system for 25 years and this is not an argument ever used by the library when run by the City!

Re: “Think of the Children

Why not use the underutilized and overfunded TUSD Pre-Ks that were established under HT? The former disgraced Director fled to Patagonia to get out of a no-win position. We're already paying for these schools in our property taxes. Curious that no one from TUSD has weighed in on this prop....

"Cease's Green New Deal starts with a realignment of budget priorities, to move money away from corporation incentives..." An anti-corporate welfare candidate, imagine that. Here's hoping the #DemExit vote turns out for him. Good luck, Mike.

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: “Think of the Children

Anytime props come out with kids in the heading it means more money.the sad part is the money raised never goes where it was intended. Look at the tobacco tax,to date so much money has been collected and where has it gone? Whoever came up with this isn't looking at children only seeing dollar signs. Pima county don't pass any of these propositions. Vote no on props,please!
