Re: “Hell Yes!

Not on the backs of working people. If you can't pass a property tax, we don't need a sales tax.

Our property taxes are near the lowest, our sales taxes are near the highest. Much as I hate to say it, the teabaggers are right on this one...

!NO 101!

Re: “Trouble in Republican City Over Voucher Expansion?

I was thinking @ this the other day. What really made America the greatest nation in history?

FREE PUBLIC EDUCATION FOR ALL.

No ifs, ands, or buts. It's that simple to me. A literate+numerate populace is the single greatest advance in the history of our species. Forget fire.

Re: “Zona Politics Tonight: Councilman Steve Kozachik and Metro Chamber Prez Mike Varney

So we're going to fix our roads on the backs of the working class with sales taxes already near the highest in the country? We're going to buy a bunch of new firetrucks when we could pay Tucson citizens to rebuild the engines and whatever else they need in the ones we have instead of throwing them away? This progressive says NO!!!

Re: “Favoring the 8 Percent, Ignoring the 92 Percent

Don't kid us, you know as well as I do, it doesn't have jack anything to do with the students or education or private vs. public - it's all about our state legislators being on the boards and having wives running the software companies, and the lot of them getting rich on our tax money. Pardon me while I go vomit...

Re: “"Martha McSally Is Not Answering"

Her fax machine is still working until everyone figures that game out too. Give it a go, it's free (I had bad luck with .doc files; you should print/export your .doc as a .pdf and it works like a charm):

Still too hard? No computer? You can fax by text message: Text RESIST to 50409

Re: “On the Theory and Practice of Bullshitting

Everyone knows the working class pays the largest percentage of sales tax. Ergo, it's the only tax Ducey can love, a mere annoyance to his demographic.

Re: “Jerry Falwell Jr. to Head Trump's Higher Ed Deregulation Task Force. Expect a Big Boost for Liberty—Falwell's Liberty University, That Is.

UMC had serious care issues before Banner. I don't wanna gross you out with personal experiences of my self and family members. 10X better care @ St. Joes (clean, explained procedure, calm collected bedside manner, etc.); I'm not sure why UMC always had such a good rep and they didn't; my experiences have been the opposite of what I've heard. I did know a lot of UMC staff tho, I guess they were biased.
