Re: “Primary Vote Numbers Don't Look Good For Arizona Democrats

That "blue wave" that corporate media outlets like MSNBC keep spouting about doesn't seem to have made it to Pima County. Maybe Progressive Democrats weren't that enthused after the outside money flooded in for the establishment pick (Kirkpatrick). These are the turnout percentages by party for Pima County. Greens even turned out better than Democrats even though the Green Party had a blank ballot with eligible write-in candidates for only two or three races, depending on your district.

VOTER TURNOUT - TOTAL . . . . . . 38.00
VOTER TURNOUT - GREEN . . . . . . 56.70

Re: “Tight Corner

I'm guessing they're trying to "incentivize less personal car use and ownership" because this cluster-frack doesn't have nearly enough parking spaces.

Re: “Fourth Dimensions

It's sad that downtown and 4th Avenue have lost a lot of what made them unique, the great collection of offbeat shops, bars and restaurants. Kind of hard to roll down Congress these days and not remember good times had at places that are now long gone. Hopefully karma will find and boot-stomp the politicians and unscrupulous landlords that have forced many long-established local businesses out of the area.

Re: “The Skinny

"The tax bill is remarkably unpopular." And yet our two heroic senators voted for it. Their hypocrisy shouldn't be all that surprising, did anyone really think think adding to the debt would take precedent over anything that would line their pockets and their donors' pockets? They're Republicans, it's what they do. At least they're honest about being bought, Democrats like to pretend they're the party of the middle class and poor when they're basically Republican-lite (moderate Republicans cool with abortion and gay marriage). This country desperately needs to get money out of politics and make campaigns publicly financed, granting access to all political parties as real democracies do.

Re: “The Skinny

McSally or Kirkpatrick? Would you like a shit sandwich or a shit sandwich with extra mayo? Decisions...

Re: “The Ward 6 Pack

"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: “Kirkpatrick Wins EMILY's List Nod in Race Against U.S. Rep. McSally

"the D.C. establishment is coming together to back Kirkpatrick" Wonderful. And we all know the backing of establishment Democrats means everything. You can't make this stuff up. It's sad that the Democrats have learned nothing from 2016 or from the preceding eight years when they lost 1,000 seats at all levels of government nationwide. Ann Kirkpatrick's website is a joke - no positions, a short video with a lot of empty platitudes. People are tired of 'lesser of two evils' choices in elections. As I said when she ran against McCain, her role in the insidious Oak Flat land swap disqualified her for me. Unless the Democrats nominate a Progressive - Matiella and Wheeler have both posted some Progressive policy positions on their websites - we are likely to see a second term for McSally.
