Re: “Critics Call McCain's Oak Flat Tactics a New Low

Many Thanks to the author who is the ONLY one who has EVER pointed out the bad relationship between McCain and the Apaches. It is high time someone addressed how McCain holds grudges and Hates the Apaches. And he gets paid for nourishing his hatred...easy money! Thanks for a great article. Also, I hear that this mine will eventually be sold to China who already owns a much for national security.

Re: “Yes, Everyone Thinks Arizona's Hot, Racist and Crazy

Arizona is Hot, Conservative, Racist & Crazy...just look at all the outsiders who moved here with their warped ideas...Jan, Joe & others. Being 3rd generation Arizonan I look at how this state becomes weirder & weirder and sometimes wish we could turn back the clock to when we could at least tolerate each other

Re: “Messina

Please Don't Come To Arizona
It took boycotts to get an MLK day because of the bigots in public office. Now we have another bigot, Russell Pearce, who hates brown skin because his kid was killed by an illegal & wants to paint all browns with the same brush. The only way to insure Mexican Americans are not racially profiled is to hit us where it the pocketbook! If the cops asked EVERYONE for their "papers" regardless of color or accent, this wouldn't be a problem. In a perfect world this bill MIGHT work, but in an imperfect world with our hates and prejudices it isn't going to work.
People sometimes have to suffer to set a wrong to right. The business community courted and hired the illegals and now they cry? Sorry, suffer like the rest.
Besides if people come to Arizona before SB1070 is fixed, who is going to wash the dishes and cook the food and make the beds? Not some of the lazy Americans who would rather stay home and collect unemployment than work for less than they think they are worth! PLEASE BOYCOTT ARIZONA

Re: “Sacred and Profane

Perth, Australia is already doing robotic mining 800 miles away by satellite and Caterpillar is working on driverless trucks.
Some in Superior & the so called "Copper Corridor" must be drinking out of the same jug as CEO David Salisbury if they believe the "jobs" figures.
Most of the 400 (their figures) now employed aren't even from the area so why should anyone believe anything RCC says about employing locals?
Their CEO publicly stated (but not to Superiorites) that subsidence would be about the size of meteor crater. Their former CEO told me subidence would be bigger.
Salisbury has yet to tell us where the tailings are going or how they will move the ore out of the area. No discussions on water either!
So many unanswered questions yet McCain, Kyl, Kirpatrick and the others that have signed on as co-sponsors to these two bills only see what they want to see...$$$ in their campaign coffers & promises and to heck with what their constituents want.
