Re: “A Multi-Factored Look At TUSD's Enrollment Decline

Ugh, horribly misleading chart. It makes it look like a 50% drop when it's only 20%. No, no, no.
Why is the Tucson Weekly plastered with drug advertisements. Bleh.

Re: “Danehy

Sounds about like what my conservative friends said about Obama. Predictable and boring.

Re: “The Skinny

He didn't back off tariffs, he got the concessions he wanted- for Mexico to make some efforts to stop sending massive caravans of illegal immigrants to our borders. Of course Mexico denies that they caved to pressure. Do you even have a vague grasp of how diplomacy works?
You know something is rotten when liberals start quoting the Chamber of Commerce to back up their arguments. Way to be on the same side as the rich CEOs you are usually blaming for every problem on earth.

Re: “Burdens and Barriers

Instead of obsessing about abortion, focus on easy availability of no-cost birth control. It's ridiculous that, in the U.S. there are so many women who can't access birth control and medically accurate information on family planning. Family planning shouldn't just be for the middle and upper classes.

Re: “Tariff Catastrophe

Wow, the first people a supposedly liberal newspaper quote are an economist and the head of the Chamber of Commerce. Yes, unlimited immigration and cheap labor are what they want.
Of course they are going to say that it's not the right way. Of course they don't specify what the right way might be, including prosecuting many card-carrying members of the Arizona Chamber of Commerce for screwing U.S. workers by undercutting wages with cheap illegal workforces from the 3rd world.
Liberals used to look out for workers. Now they're siding with the Chamber of Commerce. How times have changed!

Re: “Back in Gear: The Bike Ranch

Usually I'm skeptical of variances, but this seems like a great idea. Anything that saves that area for cycling is a good idea. It's a treasure in Pima County and unique to the area.
Thousands of homes are being built just a few miles south of there and nobody is talking about the environmental destruction from those new housing developments plus the thousands of additional cars on Old Spanish Trail every day.

Re: “Detained Desert View Student Told Deputy He Was Undocumented

So despite lack of license, registration, insurance, he's still driving? What a country! Back to wherever you come from and try the legal way.
