    Don’t even open video link without barf bag at the ready.
    As a famous Southern Governor and former Presidential candidate has said-
    “These folks know a whole lot of four letter words; But not a few, like “soap” or “work”.

      Many other famous southern Governor’s are familiar with the words “execute the innocent,” “school segregation,” “I have “did” everything,”  “Yes, Mr Koch, I will bend over.”

        Since you have no idea about geography you may not attend PCC at your current grade level; Go complain to Grijalva about it.

The Tucson Progressive: Pamela J. Powers

I stand on the side of Love. I believe in kindness to all creatures on Earth and the inherent self-worth of all individuals–not just people who agree with me or look like me.

Widespread economic and social injustice prompted me to become a candidate for the Arizona House, representing Legislative District 9 in the 2016 election.

My platform focused on economic reforms to grow Arizona’s economy, establish a state-based public bank, fix our infrastructure, fully fund public education, grow local small businesses and community banks, and put people back to work at good-paying jobs.

In the Arizona House, I was a strong voice for fiscal responsibility a moratorium on corporate tax breaks until the schools were fully funded, increased cash assistance to the poor, expansion of maternal healthcare benefits, equal rights, choice, unions, education at all levels and protecting our water supply.

After three terms, I retired from the Arizona Legislature in January 2023 but will continue to blog and produce my podcast “A View from the Left Side.”
