Buckmaster Show Callers Were A Wee Bit Upset With Me

Posted By on Fri, Aug 22, 2014 at 11:30 AM

All I did was say, when I was a guest on the Buckmaster Show, that Republican legislators and Governor Brewer should be ashamed of themselves for refusing to give the $317 million to our schools mandated by law, even though a judge says they have to — right now. Then I said something about them balancing the budget on the backs of children. Was that so wrong?

Apparently the callers who filled the rest of the show (I've never had that kind of a call-in response before) thought so. After two tinfoil hatters, the rest were more reasonable — wrong, but more reasonable. I tried to set them straight, but I wish I had the same delete and rewrite capabilities when I have a mic in front of me that I have when I put fingers to keyboard. (And then I shoulda said . . .)

The first half of the show is an interesting Buckmaster interview with Bishop Gerald Kicanas. A good man, even if I disagree with him about vouchers. I come in at about the 30 minute mark.
