Ronald Hamric 9 hours, 27 minutes ago on 337 Trump and working class voters.


I suspect that those polls are as reasonably accurate/correct as any poll can be. Of course what remains to be seen is if an "outsider" with purely business/BS(Bull Scat) skills can effect the necessary changes in the entrenched "system" (dominated by insiders)as is expected of him by those very same supporters. Being the eternal cynic, I won't hold my breath awaiting ANY of those promises to be fulfilled. I would be most happy to be proven wrong.


Ronald Hamric 9 hours, 35 minutes ago on 338 What happened to road plowing?

Tom, I don't tend to conspiracy theories, but I sense a county tax increase coming. Having worked in municipal government I have a fair idea of how their minds work. Start taking away or reducing services the taxpayers have become accustomed to and you WILL get their attention. Once you have their attention, you can subtly suggest they can have those services back to normal if they will only submit to a small increase in their taxes to pay for the restoration of those services. In all my years I have never seen any government entity that has not been addicted to tax revenues.

We give them the time we can afford, the care we can afford, the love we can afford. And for that they give us back 110% of their love and devotion. Sorry for your loss.

And you STILL think the Federal Government is efficient and working on OUR behalf? This whole Fossil Creek fiasco pretty much is indicative of what we have come to expect from the Feds.


Ronald Hamric 2 days, 14 hours ago on Fossil Creek 'safety crisis' decried

Chief Morris, As a retired Public Safety Officer (Fire) I appreciate your desire to perform your agencies function, regardless of jurisdiction. If you simply put out the word that if ANYONE gets in trouble on Forest Service responsibility lands. then they should call the US Forest Service to address the emergency. If the US Forest Service contracts with your agency to perform those tasks and functions, then the monetary charges (to the US Forest Service) for those services should reflect the challenges that come with said service. The US Forest Service will continue forever to abuse your service as long as they can get away with shirking THEIR responsibilities in that area. Perhaps those that get in trouble along Fossil Creek should call the environmentalists in Tucson do come to their rescue since it is they that control and orchestrate the leadership of the US Forest Service. Either way, you should no longer overtax your VOLUNTEERS to the risk of their well being, simply due to an intransigent US Forest Service and their bureaucratic minions. They OWN it! Let them provide ALL services required by THEIR rules. Just my two cents, and I have confidence you will do the right thing in the end.

Mr. DeVirgillo,

Thanks for the entertainment. It just keeps getting better and better.

This article pretty much hits the nail on the head as to what we just experienced in this nation. Mr. Hanson sums it up pretty well. Few in the MSM have even come close to identifying the "awakening" Mr. Evans points to. Where it goes from here is anybody's guess.


Ronald Hamric 1 week ago on 272 Tax on companies that take jobs offshore.


My error. I was thinking of State Disability Insurance and specifically California. A little research clearly shows you are correct regarding Unemployment Insurance. I stand corrected.

Mr. Evans,

You might as well save your breath. They STILL think this was about Donald Trump. I must say I am being daily entertained with all their apoplectic machinations. We sorry "basket full of deplorables" "clinging to our guns and Bibles" will simply have to get on with things and let them have their temper tantrums. I'm not certain, based on how totally unhinged so many of them are, that this is actually over. There is still the very real possibility things may get "hot" before they finally come to their senses.


Ronald Hamric 1 week, 3 days ago on 306 Should Dylan Roof be executed?

Tom, This young man is 22 years old. By the time ALL of his appeals run out regarding his death sentence, he will be somewhere around 57 years old. The costs associated with maintaining his sorry butt for all those years is an affront to justice. That we even refer to our current system as "Justice" is simply ludicrous on it's face. Justice is "sure and SWIFT" punishment for your crimes.
