I do NOT play well with ignorant, selfish, or stupid. I have zero tolerance for those who post from information gleaned only from partisan emails, blogs and sensationalist, hate-mongering websites.

Re: “Danehy

In my opinion, "Martha McSellout" has always been given more credit than she deserved. When she took "brave stances and actions that advanced the cause of women," while in the military, every single one of those actions DIRECTLY benefitted her and only benefitted other women as a by-product. Once she became a Congresswoman, how many "brave stances and actions that advanced the cause of women" has she taken?

McSally now slathers after Trump, because she sees a tremendous future political opportunity for herself by doing it. She does NOT represent the majority of her constituents. Just take a look at the names of the people she appointed to her transition team when she was elected or at who her major donors and 'advisors' were/are and you'll get a good idea who she REALLY represents. She will continue to kiss up to Trump while pandering to developers, corporations, and top earners at the expense of the middle class.

Re: “Meet Your Candidates: GOP Congressional Hopeful Brandon Martin Hopes to End Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid

Prior to 2016, I would have written that any candidate who wanted to end Social Security and Medicare had a snowball's chance in hell of winning. However, now that we have seen how utterly ignorant and easily duped American voters can be ('If a candidate puts its hand over its heart for the National Anthem, then that candidate is a patriot, so by golly, I'll vote for him', or believing that the GOP Tax Reform Bill would actually provide a substantial benefit to the middle class, etc..), Brandon Martin might actually get a number of votes. Remember the old adage, "A fool is born every minute," or perhaps more apropos: "A fool and his money are soon parted."

Re: “Dark Horse Rides Again

Bennett shows how he is too much of an extremist to govern the state of Arizona. He is obsessed with balancing the budget, without consideration for how adversely some of the cuts he wants to make would impact the majority of Arizonans, nor strategies to counter them. He didn't talk about how he would improve the quality of life, healthcare, education, public safety or anything else for the citizens of this great state. Nope. But, he sure made it clear how he is representing the ultra-conservatives of his own party.

Bennett basically said that he is running primarily to make sure the state stays republican; not because he wants to help it grow and prosper. He put forth no fresh, new ideas on how to lead the state forward; his idea of leading is quite obviously by 'undoing'. His top priorities if elected are 'undoing' the Affordable Care Act and going after the education budgets (all while arming teachers so more commonsense gun laws to protect our children won't be passed). He's like a pistol-packing accountant in an elephant suit. It's just 'politics' to him. HIS politics. Nothing more.

Re: “Slow Growth Tucson

Paul Cunningham stating that in order to change the ordinance, "there would have to be public hearings and study sessions and lots of thinking and planning in the halls of government", demonstrates exactly why it takes so long to get any change accomplished in Tucson. While the city council is caught up in all of their bureaucratic baloney and hoop jumping, people who could already be working will remain unemployed and/or on food stamps and unable to contribute to or participate in, our local economy.

It would take one person less than a day to gather information and statistics regarding the up and down sides of allowing larger commercial growing operations (perhaps 'borrowing' some of that information from our neighbors to the north, who already allow growth operations of that size) and to prepare a report on the findings to present to the city council. After that, why would it require the numerous "... public hearings and study sessions and lots of thinking and planning"?

No wonder our local economy is so stagnant, when change is always mired down by the convolutions required by the city council.
