Re: “Danehy

The 3rd party candidates are history in Arizona! Our wonderful Governor Jan "The Wicked Witch of the West" Brewer made sure of that by signing a bill today into law that will increase the signature gathering requirement by 4000%. So all of you "fence-sitting independents who chooses to remain non-aligned because both tribes disgust me" better wake-up because your claim of "we are the fastest growing political party in the US representing approximately a third of all voters" is not holding water at this very moment.

Re: “Danehy

Wow Tom,
You really hit the nail on the head!
This Arizona monster, Attorney General Tom "The Scarecrow" Horne along with the rest of the bunch governing this state, need to get a clue. Governor Jan "The Wicked Witch of the West" Brewer who just won a political battle with the help of the same democrats that she had despised all along. Superintendent of Public Instruction John "The Wizzard of OZ" Huppenthal who is systematically destroying our public education system. Semi-retired ex-Senate President Russell "The Cowardly Lion" Pearce who won't accept the fact that the electorate is tired of him. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe "The Tinman" Arpaio who's running scared because he too may wind up in his own open air tents, wearing pink underwear and eating those delicious baloney sandwiches that he's been feeding the prisoners. Just another day in "The Land of OZ" folks. I wouldn't live anywhere else!

Re: “Guest Commentary

Sal and his wonderful family have been around Tucson for a long time. They are well respected in our community and beyond. I can say the same for Raul and Regina; Jonathan wants to improve our city but was wrong in this case. @ Steve, you need to show a little bit of respect for your elders or weren't you taught that as a child? We all know that politicians are human and make mistakes, as we sometimes do our selves. Maybe we can find another location for the GCU campus that's acceptable to them. This shouldn't be a dead issue for the City of Tucson and as a "Progressive" lot we need to do not only what is right but also what needs to be done.

Re: “Will MAS Return to TUSD?

The state law that banned MAS from TUSD was the brain child of Arizona's State Attorney General Tom Horne. The manner in which he got into office was questionable at least and illegal at worse. This corrupt politician has had it in for MAS since he was Arizona State Superintendent of Public Instruction.

Re: “Blogislature 2012

Al Mejicano,

Aunque soy "Boricua", mi corazon esta al lado del Pueblo Mejicano, aqui en Arizona. Porque no hablas contra "La Bruja Mala del Oeste" Gobernadora Jan Brewer, "El Leon Cobarde" Ex-Senador Russell Pearce, "El Hombre Hecho de Lata" Alguacil del Condado Maricopa Joe Arpairo, "El Hombre Hecho de Paja" Abogado General Tom Horne y en final, "El Brujo de OZ" Superintendente de Instruccion Publica John Huppenthal?

Re: “TQ&A

Arizona Senate President/Senator Russell Pearce, “The Cowardly Lion”, isn’t alone in his thoughts about what is “right” for our state. He has Governor Janice K. Brewer, “The Wicked Witch of the West”, Maricopa County’s Sheriff Joe Arpaio, “The Tin Man”, and Attorney General Tom Horne, “The Straw Man”, to help him carry out his racist and discriminatory agenda against the Hispanic population and other minorities in Arizona.

Why would I want to be racially profiled due to SB1070, my children not be able to learn about their Puerto Rican history in school due to HB2281, be harassed in the polling place due to the Voter I.D. laws, have to prove who I am to the hospital (when I already know that I’m an American citizen and U.S. Air Force verteran) and have to prove who my children are with their birth certificates before I can enroll them in school?

Arizona is becoming a Police State similar to Nazi Germany. The 287(g) program is being abused by Sheriff Joe Arpaio in Arizona and he’s racially profiling Hispanics with impunity. How can this continue? The systematic violation of our civil rights with the blessings of the Federal Government.

I’m horrified and disgusted at these politicians who seem to think that they are above the law.
