idea behind IRS doing this would implicate our spending money
thank you for sharing this....Industry-funded zealots are fishing to avoid nonprofits from defending experts, kids, employees and the surroundings. With the outrageous discussion that nonprofits are getting wealthy by making the govt follow its own rules, they want to make sure that only the truly wealthy are able to take the govt to judge.

fraser says: "Tucson is 41% Hispanic and TUSD is over 60% Hispanic. Yet nobody wants to go to TUSD, they move to Vail, Marana, etc. They are voting with their feet. They don't care about TUSD."
Many, if not most, of the middle class (mostly white) parents who send their kids to non-TUSD schools still live within TUSD's boundaries. They ought to care a lot about what goes on inside TUSD schools because a whole bunch of their tax money is being frittered away to keep TUSD administrators living in the style to which most of us will never become accustomed. The state and federal government pay about the same amount per pupil to all the local school districts. So any differences in per pupil spending result from the different amount of local taxes paid to each of the districts. In 2012...the most recent year with audited reports...here are the total per pupil expenditures for some local districts: Vail/$6,523 per pupil; Catalina Foothills/$6,633; Flowing Wells/ $6,887 per pupil; Sunnyside/$7,004 per pupil; Tanque Verde/$7,261 per pupil; Amphitheater/$7,830 per pupil; TUSD/$8,751. As you can see, TUSD got more than a $1,000 more per pupil than any other local district. In fact, TUSD $2,000 or more per pupil than Vail, Catalina Foothills, and Flowing Wells. All data comes from the Arizona Auditor General's 2012 report on Arizona School District spending.
Tucson is 41% Hispanic and TUSD is over 60% Hispanic. Yet nobody wants to go to TUSD, they move to Vail, Marana, etc. They are voting with their feet. They don't care about TUSD. They see the results.
That's a good point Happel.
I didn't consider the full amount of tit available to me if I decided to depend on a good suckling.
Local tax payers milking is a good point too.
Bob, those aren't Federal teats. If you own property in TUSD, those teats are yours. So far, half a billion dollars worth of mother's milk.
Much like a sick mother who intentionally keeps her child sick to get extra benefits and attention from wet-nurses, TUSD insists on maintaining "segregation". 30 years now.
We're not racists. Fiercely nationalistic yes but not racists. The natural course of the demographics in Tucson have clearly "desegregated us".
Even though "desegregation" has loud and clear overtones of prejudice and racism, TUSD just cant give up Mother's milk. If I knew someone with the tits of the Federal government, I might be tempted to suck them too. Count me as part of the problem.
One of the reasons there are so many millions of illegals here - there are NOT 11 Million but 40-60 Million illegals and 80% of them Mexican. Mexico has very rigid laws against illegals and they are very frequently murdered, raped and robbed. It is a "felony" in Mexico to sneak into their country (not a misdemeanor like here). Also, the former Governor Napolitano did next to nothing and a lot of stuff that was predestined it appeared to have little or not effect on the border because she herself is partially of Mex. descent. Her father was born there and I read she went to school there. Her grandmother is a Mex. citizen and she took all her info off the internet. ALSO, MEXICO HAS AN AGENDA TO TAKE OVER THE SW INCLUDING 7 SW STATES AND MURDER ANYONE WHO IS NOT OF MEX. DESCENT. GOOGLE: "LA RECONQUISTA" OR THEIR OTHER NAME FOR IT "AZTLAN" AND READ THE LATE U.S. REP. CHARLES NORWOOD'S REPORT "THE TRUTH ABOUT LA RAZA" to see what they have planned including an "ethnic cleansing" (like Hitler)!
The guest has only outlined what he doesn't want. It would make a lot more sense if he equally outlined how he intends on locating and detaining illegal criminals.
Unless he has no intention to at all which would be the GENUINE thing to say and that could have been covered in a single compound-complex sentence.
The local police work for Federal agencies ALL THE TIME to round up their felons.
Regardless of what our illustrious politicians say and do, no legislation will change one's mindset. If a person is willing to pay thousands of dollars to violate the laws of their homeland and another country, they will not magically become law abiding citizens because of some legislation forgiving them. For the most part, I do not believe more than 50% of those here illegally will register, pay back taxes, pay the fine, learn English and become citizens. The logic is not there nor is past history. Mass deportation will not work either, so we will be left with virtually no change in the status quo.

No they are not "criminal drug dealers". But their crime levels are way, way more than the % of their residence here in Tucson. Watch the news tonight. See if I am wrong. I think they have a problem, hence we will.
Three points you fail to address or consider, Steve: 1) Entering another country without permission is illegal and punishable by the laws of said country. 2) Mexico forbids illegal immigration into their country and punishes those in Mexico illegally with jail time or worse, and expulsion. 3) To ask certain law enforcement officers to ignore certain laws is to ask for chaos and corruption. (Imagine DPS being told to ignore city ordinances, or the FBI ordered to ignore local laws like assault or DUI).
What is it with our City Council that they feel this endless need to pick fights with the State Legislature or weigh in on national ideological issues that are none of their concern. You can exercise your personal feelings at the ballot box Steve. How about focusing on your job and doing something about the streets.
Children who are citizens, worry that their non-citizen parents will be deported, and their family torn apart. So many of the people who support SB1070, don't even know any undocumented people, but they know inherently it seems, that they don't like them. (See above in all caps.) I've spoken to people who actually believe that all Mexicans are criminal drug dealers, and thus should be deported, en masse. SB1070 is a terrible law. Repealing it would be one step in the improvement of Arizona's reputation and economy.
REPEAL SB1070 NOW
SB 1070 IS PROBABLY THE BEST THING THAT HAS HAPPENED IN ARIZONA! ALSO, THERE IS A LAW THAT SAYS LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT MUST HELP THE FEDS WITH CRIME & SB 1070 COMPLIES WITH THAT FULLY!
WHAT'S TEARING APART THE COMMUNITY ARE MILLIONS OF ILLEGAL ALIENS (THEY ARE NOT "IMMIGRANTS" AS "IMMIGRANTS" MEANS PEOPLE WHO COME HERE LEGALLY LIKE OUR ANCESTORS!) IN THE COUNTRY STEALING AMERICANS' JOBS, COMMITTING CRIMES, STEALING OUR SOCIAL SERVICES, OVERWHELMING OUR SCHOOLS, HOSPITALS, ETC., ETC. - THAT'S WHAT'S REALLY TEARING APART THE NATION!
Pepper's thoughts are a seemingly admission that climatic change has occurred, is occurring and will continue to occur, with or without the influence of man. I agree; let's forget the man-caused Global Warming fable and move on making life better for mankind using fossil fuels. The seas will rise, as they have in the past, and they will fall again just as they have in the recent past (+-8,000 years).
Further, his comments on the extraction of fossils of long-extinct species demonstrates another continuing truth - species come - species go. The strong and adaptable survive, the weak and too specialized parish. This is how it works.
To be sure unnecessary mass slaughter of animals is truly a sin, but the loss of species as we dominate the earth is the timeless way things work. Move on and make life better for mankind not by protecting things like the sage grouse or snail darter and denying the full beneficial use of resources in and on the land. This is foolishness, not wisdom; be concerned, but not ridiculous.
Until such time as moderate and reasonable Muslims publically condemn and distance themselves from the murders in their faith they will continue to be profiled, mistrusted and, in many cases hated.
It is entirely possible the lady she considered irrational has lost some very dear to her at the hands of these murdering fiends. This would cause anyone to react toward an in-your-face display. Do not be critical of this lady, but rather pity her, irrespective of her reason.
I still have not completely forgiven the Japanese for the destruction they wrought on my family when I was a boy more than 65 years ago. Some pains are more enduring.
The OHIO politicians just reversed pollutions and environmental laws, saying they were losing business and profits. They said it good for business, but they don't believe in clean energy, says it a job loser.
The author almost got it right...and then moved on to 'global warming'. Which will take eons from now to prove or disprove.
Stick with tackling garden variety pollution like we started to do in the 1970's. What we do to our lakes, rivers, sewer systems, landfills, and other animal species is obscene.
However there may not be any grant money in it and you'll have to move from your fat-ass seat.
