Re: “Danehy

What Mr. Clinton and Ms. Lewinsky did was disgusting and inappropriate, but is was CONSENSUAL.

Re: “The Skinny

I strongly believe the city has been spending road funds appropriately, that they've done what they said, and I support them. This has been a good team...

I also strongly believe more sales tax isn't the answer. It's time our public servants started acting like citizens - my truck is 30 years old. I'm about to put it's 3rd new engine in it. When you're strapped for cash, you FIX things instead of acting like a $300k fire truck is as disposable as a dixie cup. Worried about reliability? Replace the whole engine next time instead of whatever breaks. I'm willing to bet a brand-new diesel engine is less than $20k. That's a factor of 10, and you essentially have a new truck...

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
