Good riddance Horn and Hup.

Ducey invented the ring the bell and sing a song for his ice cream staff to get tipped. He has the kids hold out a tablet for signing off on your card but you have to select $1, $2, or $3 tip to get there.

So he ought to swing back around to Hi Fi Kichens and Coctails to tip the employees that he and his own staff STIFFED during his election party.

Do the right thing DUCEY.

Doug Ducey is a scumbag who made his fortune cheating low paid kids. He will do the same for other Arizona workers.

  McSally is nothing but a sock puppet for the Koch brothers looking for another govt pension. Interesting how people like McSally assail programs like SNAP that help the working poor as govt handouts while she has never had a private sector job in her life and if elected she will be double dipping so she can get another govt pension.

Raul Grijalva has also never held a private sector job in his life, and he inexplicably keeps getting reelected. Just sayin’

I thank Huppenthal and Horne for the excellent work they’ve done outlawing the indoctrination to hate classes. I hope those laws stand for all-time.

That issue aside, I think they are both looney, and perhaps it is time to give someone else a shot at those jobs.

I have a further beef with Horne. I wrote a letter to his office (a real, old-fashioned paper letter) inquiring as to why Frank Atwood hasn’t been executed yet, while other death row inmates who committed their crimes a decade or more later have been executed. I am still waiting for a reply to that letter. I guess I’ll change the name at the top and resend the letter to the new AG once he or she takes office.

So I guess Doug Ducey shows is that the way to win an election is to not show up for the debates. sigh

Sorry, we missed your input...

User Guidelines

Please be respectful and relevant. Thought-provoking. Or at least funny.

We want comments to advance the discussion and we need your help. Debate, disagree, yell (digitally) or laugh, but do it with respect.

We won't censor your comments if we don't agree with you; we want viewpoints from across the political spectrum. We're dedicated to sparking an open, active discussion. We believe people with differing opinions can spark debate and effect change.

Comments are open to registered users of TucsonSentinel.com.

Keep in mind:

  • A conversation involves sharing and respect. Support your viewpoint with facts, not attacks.
  • Ask questions. Search out answers.
  • Remember that being part of a community requires tolerance for differing views.
  • We can't ensure that all comments are based in truth. The only comments we endorse are those we write ourselves.

TucsonSentinel.com does not allow:

  • Hate speech. Blatantly racist, sexist or homophobic slurs or calls for violence against a particular type of person, etc. will be removed.
  • Obscenity & excessive cursing. Sometimes a well-placed curse word - if you're creative enough to get it past our auto-censor - can express your point in just the right way. But we say '%*$& no' to cursing for cursing's sake. And lose the explicit sexually-descriptive language. It doesn't contribute to the debate and there are plenty of other places on the Internet to find it.
  • Flaming. During a heated discussion, unkind words may be spoken. We can live with a certain amount of rudeness in the name of provocative conversation, but a pattern of personal attacks (name-calling, mocking, or baiting) is not acceptable nor are threatening or harassing comments. Show some respect, please.
  • Explicit political endorsements. As a nonprofit we can't allow electioneering. Analysis and explanation of political issues and candidates are encouraged, but specific calls to vote for or against a measure or politician should be done elsewhere.
  • Spam. Solicitation of products or services isn't allowed; contact us about advertising, we'd love to talk to you. Links to off-topic sites may be deleted.
  • Copyright or IP infringement. Lengthy quotes and violations of 'Fair Use' aren't allowed. Anything you post should be your own work.
  • Overposting. Don't bore people and waste electrons with identical comments on multiple stories or repetitive comments that don't advance a conversation.
  • Trolling, sockpuppetry, and other abusive behavior. Please don't feed the trolls and don't pretend to be someone you're not.
  • Gossip. Don't bring up others who can't defend themselves. We don't give out personal information; you shouldn't either.

Comments that violate these guidelines may be removed. We reserve the right to make up the rules as we go along.

Flagging

Commentors are solely responsible for the opinions they express and the accuracy of the information they provide. Users who violate these standards may lose their privileges on TucsonSentinel.com.

Sentinel editors can't read every comment. Trolls, spammers and other troublemakers can slide under the bridge. We rely on you to help maintain a healthy conversation - more than likely, you're reading these comments before the editors.

What if you see something inappropriate? Use the 'Flag' button to send it to a moderation queue. Help us out and tell us why you're reporting it; please don't report someone just because you disagree with them. Boy who cried wolf and all that. We'll take appropriate action on violations.

We will not edit comments to alter their meaning or censor comments because of political content.

We will not remove comments solely because they are heartless, cruel, coarse, foolish or just plain wrong. Your disapproval can maintain a decent signal to noise ratio. Ultimately, however, self-policing is the best method.

Bottom line, don't be a jerk.
