Re: “Tucson Is A Vacuum—And I'm Ok With That

There are lots of people from here. That's the main problem I have with the attitudes of all those people from frozen-over states. They think Tucson and it's people didn't exist until they got here.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

He absolutely did have an answer to the question, a pretty good one too, you just didn't seek to understand beyond the obvious.

Re: “This Arizona Congressman Wants to Make Sure Undocumented Students Don't Get College In-State Tuition

I'm American, I'm Tohono O'odham, I'm a business owner and I pay taxes, and I absolutely support making it as easy as possible for kids and young adults, ALL kids and young adults, to get an education. Regardless of your political affiliation or your view on this matter, for those of you who are attempting to denigrate and shame these self-starting kids with mean-spirited labels and hate, you should be truly ashamed.

Re: “Barrio Cuisine Closes in Downtown Tucson

This sucks. Hopefully they can re-open in a smaller and less expensive space.

Re: “Head Down to Oak Flat for the Weekend: Concert & Advocacy Conference

The number of permanent jobs over the 40 year life of the mine will be 400 jobs. The construction of the mine is where the 1400 jobs figure comes in. Many of these initial jobs will be contracted labor and they are not permanent jobs. The area is also the second largest riparian area on the U.S. all of which will be destroyed by a FOREIGN mining company. The copper will not be smelted in the U.S. either but shipped out of the country fir the smelting process. The final copper product will be sold to China. The southwest is in a severe drought. The mining process will be depleting precious groundwater. The toxic tailings from the mine will literally be mountain high and will be placed just outside the town limits of Superior. The patent company, Rio Tinto, had a long list of human rights violations and environmental violations. All for 400 jobs?

Re: “Democratic PAC EMILY's List Puts Martha McSally 'On Notice' for Next Election

> It's working out great for me and a lot of other people I know. I can now afford to pay for health insurance (and I'm not getting any subsidies) and not worry about ruining my life if I get into an accident.

Re: “The Desert Goddess of Glen Canyon

So Biz Boy, what exactly are these "needs" of the many? Do these needs include bacon wrapped pizzas and enough junk food to make approx 2/3 of Americans overweight or obese? Oh, and btw, by some estimates as much as 40% of food in America is tossed out. Do these "needs" include gas guzzling SUVs that get a mere 12-18 gallons per mile? Oh, how about the need to have new electronics every year when millions of tons of electronic waste is being produced each and every year in America alone? Your thinking is governed by ideology, platitudes and propaganda, and is conspicuously lacking in facts. Try harder.
