yeah, no joke. i was saying the same thing...that they need to come here more than ever now. and play multiple shows/rallies/demonstrations, etc to get people rallied around fighting that bill.

Had a good weekend... got to see the Beatles symphony with Ivy and her friend Amy. Most of it was good, I could have done without the Blood, Sweat, and Tears songs though...

My mom is a Dbacks fan so I took her to the Dbacks game yesterday for mom's day, and then they lost... Stupid Dbacks.

Watched the Triplets of Belleville with Ivy's friend Amy last night. I had never seen it. It was awesome, great animation and music. Those French animators are crazy! I also loved how there wasn't much dialog. I should have watched it years ago but had never gotten around to it.

New Dead Weather album comes out tomorrow and new Black Keys album comes out next Tuesday. Sweetness! I will be looking forward to seeing both of them again at an upcoming festival that should not be named...

Last but not least. I got tickets for LCD's show in Pomona on 6/5. Holla! Rick and Jenn, are you guys going to the L.A. show or the Pomona show? Anyone else checking out the LCD shows in Cali?

Word.

Save for the grilled cheese, the food at The Main Ingredient is nothing special but they have some pretty good beers on draft. Out of the eight or so taps, at least four of them are AZ brews and there's prolly twenty or so microbrews in bottles. All booze is half-price before 6 pm daily and all day Monday. Can't beat $2.50 pints.

I figure since he isn't doing well in school and he doesn't exactly lose any of his priviliges when he's with mom, then I need to play bad guy in a productive an encouraging way. So when he comes over on Friday nights he no longer gets to play any violent video games, watch any WWE or violence on tv, no allowance, no more movies at the theater (ironman2 was the last) less time in front of the tv in general, and some simple chores like walking the dog and taking out trash. In place of the hundreds of pointless hours in front of the tv I now offer him a bit of a schedule. For instance cooking and reading for an hour every Saturday morning and we follow that up with outdoor activities like football, baseball and soccer at the park. That TV is poison for his mind.

Informal and quick poll.

for internet: do you use Cox or Qwest or something else?

I am considering firing Qwest in favor of Cox. In FH Qwest is really slow (reported max spd 3 Mbps; reality is closer to 500K) and as we have multiple users routing through the same pipe it can be tiresome.

opinions?

cox. no internet problems whatsoever. i use the mid-level service i think. "preferred" maybe? my old roommate had the premium kind where you get special techies to come out and fix shit very quickly. that was really cool, but way overkill for me living by myself.

Mr. Dylanja
05-17-2010, 12:21 PM
I'd do it. I've had Qwest in the past and currently have Cox and the connection seems to be much faster, smoother and less glitchy. I've had no problems with Cox and if internet conncection is a priority to you there are package upgrades for that.

Have you checked if you can upgrade to higher? Give me your phone number or nearby address (or actual address), and I can see how much you qualify for. (I will delete info immediately afterwards). Also, if you want to upgrade, I can have someone contact you at your convenience.

This is my exact logic. I used Qwest about 9 years ago and never went back. I have been using Cox for internet ever since and they are solid and it's super fast. I don't feel the same way about their cable service. For our set up Cox would cost double what I pay directv.

Text of Arizona Proposition 100


OFFICIAL TITLE
SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION 1001
A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION
PROPOSING AN AMENDMENT TO THE CONSTITUTION OF ARIZONA; AMENDING ARTICLE IX, CONSTITUTION OF ARIZONA, BY ADDING SECTION 12.1; RELATING TO TEMPORARY TRANSACTION PRIVILEGE AND USE TAXES.
TEXT OF PROPOSED AMENDMENT
Be it resolved by the Senate of the State of Arizona, the House of Representatives concurring:
1. Article IX, Constitution of Arizona, is proposed to be amended by adding section 12.1 as follows if approved by the voters and on proclamation of the Governor:
12.1. Temporary taxes; repeal from and after May 31, 2013
SECTION 12.1. A. A TEMPORARY TAX IS LEVIED FOR THE PURPOSE OF RAISING STATE REVENUES FOR PRIMARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION, HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES AND PUBLIC SAFETY.
B. THE TEMPORARY TAX IS LEVIED AND SHALL BE COLLECTED BEGINNING ON JUNE 1, 2010 AND SHALL CONTINUE FOR THIRTY-SIX CONSECUTIVE CALENDAR MONTHS, AFTER WHICH THE TEMPORARY TAX IS REPEALED.
C. THE TEMPORARY TAX IS LEVIED AS A SEPARATE RATE INCREMENT IN ADDITION TO THE STATE TRANSACTION PRIVILEGE TAX RATES AND THE USE TAX RATE. THE RATE OF THE TEMPORARY TAX IS ONE PER CENT OF THE TAX BASE FOR EACH TRANSACTION PRIVILEGE CLASSIFICATION THAT IS SUBJECT TO A RATE OF FIVE PER CENT OR MORE AND ONE PER CENT OF THE TAX BASE FOR THE USE TAX.
D. THE TEMPORARY TAX IS SUBJECT TO THE SAME EXEMPTIONS, DEDUCTIONS AND EXCLUSIONS AS PROVIDED BY LAW FOR EACH TRANSACTION PRIVILEGE TAX CLASSIFICATION AND FOR THE USE TAX.
E. THE NET REVENUES DERIVED FROM THE TEMPORARY TAX IMPOSED BY THIS SECTION ARE NOT SUBJECT TO DISTRIBUTION TO COUNTIES, MUNICIPALITIES OR OTHER GOVERNMENTAL ENTITIES BUT SHALL BE CREDITED TO, AND SEPARATELY ACCOUNTED IN, THE STATE GENERAL FUND AND APPROPRIATED AS FOLLOWS:
1. TWO-THIRDS OF THE REVENUES SHALL BE APPROPRIATED FOR PUBLIC PRIMARY AND SECONDARY EDUCATION.
2. ONE-THIRD OF THE REVENUES SHALL BE APPROPRIATED FOR HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES AND PUBLIC SAFETY PURPOSES.
F. THE TEMPORARY TAXES UNDER THIS SECTION ARE DUE AND PAYABLE AT THE SAME TIME AND IN THE SAME MANNER, AND ARE SUBJECT TO THE SAME PROVISIONS FOR ADMINISTRATION AND ENFORCEMENT, AS PROVIDED BY LAW FOR OTHER TRANSACTION PRIVILEGE AND USE TAXES.
G. THE REPEAL OF THE TEMPORARY TAX UNDER THIS SECTION DOES NOT AFFECT THE CONTINUING VALIDITY OF OUTSTANDING AND UNPAID TAX OBLIGATIONS THAT ACCRUE UNDER THIS SECTION, INCLUDING ANY PENALTIES AND INTEREST THAT ACCRUE THEREAFTER BY LAW ON THE UNPAID OBLIGATIONS.
H. THE TEMPORARY TAX UNDER THIS SECTION IS REPEALED FROM AND AFTER MAY 31, 2013.
2. The Secretary of State shall submit this proposition to the voters at a special election called to be held for that purpose on May 18, 2010 as provided by article XXI, Constitution of Arizona.
ANALYSIS BY LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL
Beginning June 1, 2010, Proposition 100 would amend the Arizona Constitution to temporarily increase the state transaction privilege and use taxes ("state sales tax") by one cent per one dollar for three years. For most purchases, the state sales tax would increase from the current 5.6 cents per one dollar to 6.6 cents per one dollar. The monies collected from the temporary tax would be separately accounted for in the state general fund and would be allocated as follows:
1. Two-thirds would be appropriated for public primary and secondary education.
2. One-third would be appropriated for health and human services and public safety purposes.
Under Proposition 100, the temporary tax would be administered and enforced in the same manner as the existing state sales tax and would be subject to the same exemptions, deductions and exclusions as the existing state sales tax, except that the current distribution to cities and counties of a portion of the existing state sales tax would not include any temporary tax revenue.
The temporary tax is repealed on May 31, 2013.
FISCAL IMPACT STATEMENT
State law requires the Joint Legislative Budget Committee (JLBC) Staff to prepare a summary of the fiscal impact of Proposition 100. Beginning June 1, 2010, Proposition 100 would amend the Arizona Constitution to temporarily increase the state transaction privilege and use taxes ("state sales tax") by one cent per one dollar for three years.
Proposition 100 is projected to increase state sales tax revenues by $918 million in the first year. The proposition is projected to increase state sales tax revenues by $968 million in the second year and $1.06 billion in the third year.

1 cent on the dollar is actually pretty massive for a sales tax increase. In Flagstaff, we would vote to raise sales tax all the time for specific things, and it would always be like .163 cents on the dollar or something like that. I think in 20 years of small tax increases, MAYBE it went up a cent. To do it all at once is pretty big.

Man, I've been salty about this all week. The Clubhouse has always sucked but has it actually gotten worse? I can't remember the last show I saw there (Devotchka?) but are there now less speakers than before? No one should have to stand directly in front of the stage to get decent sound. This shithole has been around for years. There's no excuse to continue having such awful sound. Or fucked up bathrooms. Or broken ceiling fans. The owners of this venue clearly don't give a fuck about their patrons because they know it's one of the very few local venues of that size. They even did away with the sink. THE MOTHERFUCKING SINK. Fucking cunts.

I actually tensed up while writing this.

i agree. fucking obnoxious. i have no fucking idea where there money goes either. you'd think a venue like that would have cheaper ticket prices for christ's sake.

Not sure if any of you travel to Rocky Point but.....be careful would be an understatement.

http://www.kvoa.com/news/us-consulate-issues-warning-about-fake-checkpoints-in-mexico/

NOGALES, Ariz. - A travel warning has been issued from the U.S. consulate in Mexico after several unconfirmed reports of unauthorized checkpoints.

According to officials, some motorists who didn't stop were shot at and killed.

The area affected is along Highway 8, between the border and Rocky Point.

Motorists are advised to limit travel to major roads during daylight hours and to cooperate if they do come across an unofficial checkpoint.

Technically, no. When I carpool with my Puerto Rican coworker, though, we've gotten stopped each of the last 3 times she's driven. I think that whole arrangement's gonna have to come to an end.

WhoaWhoaWhoa...what reason did they give for stopping her? That doesn't even seem possible. I've been of the mindset that people were blowing this law out of proportion, but maybe I'm wrong.

My buddy, US citizen who is Mexican, got pulled over last week driving home from work at night. The police officer asked him for his driver's license, insurance, and registration. So my buddy asked why he was pulled over. The officer said I'll tell you after I run your documents. The officer went back to his car, then came back a little later and asked him if he owned his truck he was driving. He said "yes". The officer then asked him again, and he responded saying, hey, you've got all my documents in your hand, you tell me. The cop then said ok, well your license plate lights are out. You're free to go. When my friend got home, he got outside his truck to check the license plate lights and they worked.

I wish you buddy could/would have checked them while the cop was still on the scene. If he got out and they were on I would have gotten a badge number and contacted the media. The quicker stories like this get blown up to ridiculous proportions by the media the less likely they will be to abuse the power the law entitles them to have.

It's going to get a lot more messy.

Not sure if this was already posted or if anyone cares here but the Lillith Fair was cancelled in Phoenix.

http://www.azcentral.com/thingstodo/music/articles/2010/05/21/20100521lilith-canceled-go-gos-protest.html#ixzz0ohKsLyKR

Although no reason has been given, Belinda Carlisle posted her objections to the Phoenix gig on Facebook earlier this month - "in protest of the new immigration law

in ARIZONA."

Carlisle's post went on to say the Go-Go's "condemn the law and want the date moved."
