I know I'm a little late on this one but, here it is anyways. It was a monumental moment in Tucson history to see the first Latina Mayor get elected. Moreover, she hails form my neck of the desert, the Yuma area of Arizona. Best of luck to her, I can't wait to see what she does with the Old Pueblo!

Sooo, it seems Mr. Trump decided he's going to come and stump in Arizona isn't that special? The most ignorant and racist Republican candidate has taken an interest in campaigning in the most ignorant and racist state in the nation, my home state of Arizona. What a shocker. As I write this there are multiple protests going on in Tucson and along the freeway from Phoenix to Tucson, by the few Arizonans whose brains haven't been rotted out dealing with the backwards policies and regressive leaders in this state. I doubt these protests will be the last of them in the nation. Good ole' racist Don even managed to find the most racist public official in Arizona, Joe Arpaio and went to go get his blessing. Seeing as how the Trump circus is not going to see an end anytime soon, I figured the least I could do was try to contribute and help out the good people that decided to stand up against such a bigoted bully. For this reason I have made my Trump digital download free to anyone that wants to use it to protest. So anyone in any part of the world or USA can now download my Trump caricature for digital use. You can make a kickass meme or Facebook post, tweet or anything else. Feel free to share this with as many people you know that want to stand up to this clown. Happy protesting and please don't let this idiot become POTUS.
Arizona is at it again. This is what happens when you don't stand up for equal rights on the first abuse of power. Escalation. The abuse of power continues and so does the ignorant thinking and prejudices. This time around the great state that brought you the "papers please" law and decided to make life more difficult for minorities and immigrants, has decided to persecute the transgender community. Just when I thought they couldn't find more assholey ways to discriminate against minorities, Arizona manages to raise the bar of douchebaggery. This time the proposed bill by state rep. John Kavanagh would require transgender folk to identify their gender stated on their birth certificate before they use the facilities in a public place or risk facing 6 months in jail. Check out more about this knuckle dragging piece of proposed legislation here.

This lady continues to amaze me, I hope one day she returns to politics.
I got the chance to interview this charming fellow when I was part of the Tucson Citizen Editorial board.
