Fitz: The stone-cold heart of Ice Cream Man

 

Our sad small town newspaper, the Arizona Daily Star, regularly runs a feature “tell us how to improve our newspaper.” They ask, but they do not listen. Every writer at this blog has given them advice on how to improve the Star over the years, and that advice has always gone ignored.

My biggest gripe: the Arizona Daily Star web site is the worst piece-o’-crap newspaper web site I have ever run across. The articles posted in the print edition of the newspaper are frequently not posted in the online version of the newspaper, and even when they are, the articles appear under different headlines and are not always included in the menu of articles. The “all headlines” function is a sick joke. Readers have to search for the articles, and the Star’s search function also sucks. Build a better web site already!

The only reason to buy the Arizona Daily Star is for David Fitzsimmons, the Star’s long-time editorial cartoonist and political satirist. Even the wingnuts who express hatred for Fitz for his “librul” views cannot fault him for the enormous amount of community service he does for a wide array of charitable organizations in Tucson. Fitz is truly a Tucson treasure.

Fitz’s column runs on Saturdays. This past Saturday was a Fitz classic: “The Ice Cream Man and the Koch’s dark money.” I still cannot find a link to this column on the Star’s craptacular web site as of Monday. So as a public service, I will transcribe it for you below:

I met him at the Arroyo Cafe in a booth in the back. This canary was ready to sing, and I was there to listen.

Dark Throat: Your boy Doug Ducey. He doesn’t answer to people of Arizona.

Me: Who does he answer to?

DT: The Koch brothers.

Me: Who?

DT: The Koch brothers of Koch industries. They’re billionaires, and they’d like nothing more than to do away with Medicare, Social Security, the minimum wage, the EPA, OSHA, public education, unions, all taxes and every government regulation ever signed into law.

Did you know the Koch brothers bankrolled the Tea Party? Their fingerprints are all over the efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act in Congress. Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Marco Rubio are all Koch beneficiaries.

Me: What does Gov. Ducey have to do with any of this?

US Denies Legacy of Overthrowing Governments …. Gee I am supposed to be surprised…?

 

In a March 2015 State Department briefing, Spokeswoman Jen Psaki said, "As a matter of long-standing policy, the United States does not support political transitions by nonconstitutional means. Political transitions must be democratic, constitutional, peaceful and legal."

 

Russian, Venezuelan and Syrian leaders and U.S. journalists would dispute her claim.

If Operation Jade Helm were happening in any other country, it would be immediately labeled a military drill for martial law

A military training exercise on the drawing board will place armed troops across 10 U.S. states to practice "realistic" covert operations in your local communities.

What’s fascinating about this drill is that if it were taking place in any other country, it would be immediately recognized as a martial law training drill.

But in America, anyone who uses that label is immediately branded "alarmist."
