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: “Letter to the Editor

Wow.I haven't lived in Tucson since 1983 and just recently returned.
I never realized that the lefties had made such inroads . All I see here is a lot of racism towards white people, especially if they happen to be conservative.
This so-called publication is one of the most biased, whiney, apologist hateful rags I have seen, at least on a local level.You guys are on par with the NYT,Washington Post and other rags that claim they are journalists.

And you're brimming with smarts? You still haven't answered my question. You're too busy making my case for me by calling me an idiot.

Re: “Raising the CD2 Ante: Challenger Kirkpatrick Raises $350,000 in Third Quarter

If Kirkpatrick is the nominee McSally gets re-elected. Sorry, but Oak Flat should DQ Kirkpatrick and the endorsement of blue-dogs Barber and Giffords is a turnoff. That and the carpetbagger ads will write themselves. Mary Matiella has a lot of Progressive positions on her website, Medicare for All, etc., but the lack of anything re: endless wars (she's retired Asst. Secretary of the Army) is a little troubling. Will be interesting to see if the Democrats learned anything from 2016.

Jim, this is basically a press release from the Kirkpatrick campaign. Do better.

Please learn to distinguish between anger and hate. Otherwise you sound like a child.

Re: “Mid-Century Madness

It looks like there's a couple that is restoring one of Tom Gist's mid-century houses here in Tucson and is blogging about it...I wonder if they will be featured on the home tour.

Re: “Foggy Forecast

Whats happening is all people getting a MMJ license automatically purges you off jury rolls. Both Local and Federal courts

Nationally legalizing by strict license and controls only keeps a direct funding source for all of the industries that sprang up during the "WAR ON DRUGS". Most are bogus and a burden on the society and families stigmatize users and maintains a drug class of people.

Marijuana is not a political issue, that so many try here to hang the banner on. which is as much Bull as the war on drugs.

Would love to know what percentage of McSally's money comes from CD2.

Re: “Raising the CD2 Ante: Challenger Kirkpatrick Raises $350,000 in Third Quarter

I'm looking forward to finding out what percentage of that money came from donors who actually live in CD2.

Re: “The Best Way To Get Results-Based Funding Is To Be Well-Off and White

You call it public education, but what proof do you have? How do you approach that question philosophically unless you know the maximum human potential of your students? How do you know, maybe you are only at 5%?

Can you call 5% education?

Re: “It Looks Like Gabby Giffords Is Going To Endorse Ann Kirkpatrick Today in 2018 Race Against McSally

Explain how the 20 or 30 million that have affordable health care, and are now victims in Las Vegas hospitals and are on Go Fund Me looking for donations to pay their medical expenses. Health care was more affordable before they made it affordable. People with pre existing conditions are now free to come and go as situations change, and they leave the true rate payers to be punished because of losses.

The ACA Marketplace has had 10.3 million sign up.

Re: “Gabby Giffords on Las Vegas Mass Shooting: "This Must Stop"

Name calling displays a unique level of ignorance. And this is his plan to live in a world with people he disagrees with. Hatred is at the root of all of this. Like I said above there is plenty of hatred right here in the comments. And very few real solutions.

Re: “It Looks Like Gabby Giffords Is Going To Endorse Ann Kirkpatrick Today in 2018 Race Against McSally

The Resistance is the only thing that has saved us so far from the Republican Deathcare bills that would have defunded healthcare and thrown 22 to 32 MILLION AMERICANS off their existing health insurance, causing the death of thousands more people each year from lack of coverage. Trump is a malevolent, malignant narcissist and racist that needs constant supervision and opposition until Mr. Mueller reveals his treasonous conspiracy with Russia to steal his way into office. Viva la Resistance!

Re: “Gabby Giffords on Las Vegas Mass Shooting: "This Must Stop"

Let's cut the bullshit, shall we? I don't have any delusions about changing your mind. I think you're an idiot. I don't care what you think about me. Do you understand? My plan is to find a way to live in a world with morons like you who can't grasp that the NRA doesn't care about anything except getting their pockets lined from gun manufacturers. Outdoorsmen? Ha. Freedom fighters? Pathetic. But boy, if it keeps you from reaching for your piece, I sure hope you get lots of likes on your comments, tiger. They seem to matter more to you than human life.
