Pissed you clowns off but good this week, didn't I ? May I take a moment to thank each and every one of you chumps who took the time to dislike me. Annoying the Left. I love it.
You owe me one,Tom. If it wasn't for me nobody would have anything to say about this weeks column. Look at all the heat I'm taking for you.
Did your mother have any children that lived ?
11 and counting. Keep 'em coming girls. You're making my day !!!
6 already. They know I love it and still they hit it. What would really make these clowns sick is if they knew that me and Tom actually get along rather well. We don't agree on much, but we do get along. When his kids went to N.Y. last December, who did he turn to for advice on places for them to eat and places to visit ? Yep.
Well, at least he didn't knock the Republicians for a change.
Like I said....
I have to agree with Tom. My Great Uncle, John Healy was in the Calvary, and used to chase that murdering bastard back over the Arizona border.
Ok, if people want the right to not vax their kids, they should have that right. But the public has the right to be protected from unvaccinated people. So, I guess we quarantine them till they do get vaccinated.😜
This is what I love about Tom Danehy, he doesn't say mistaken or uninformed or even ignorant. He calls 'em like he sees 'em. Idiots. But I disagree with two things. Chris Christy is almost never level headed. And although Rand Paul is kind of a physician, isn't he more like a dentist? Also, they should lock up that idiot Dr. Andrew Wakefield, for starting this whole vaccination scare.
Forgive her Vince, she knows not what she says ( or writes) She accuses you of hiding behind a fake name yet only uses the first initial of her last name. The B probably stands for brainless or perhaps braindead. I really love people like her as she proves us folks ( to quote Obummer) on the right are just that. Right. While the Left is just that . Left. As in left behind. Now watch these stooges start hitting Dislike even though they know I love it.
15 years ago I vaccinated my daughter, and now she's moody, sarcastic and won't clean up her room.
Wow CW13, isn't this priceless?
I am called " ignorant" by an obvious product of the TUSD education system.
Now Robin, go back and read your letter again and see how many mistakes you can find.
As for hiding behind a name, I just don't want you and your dream pod ending up on my front lawn.
I saw what happened to Scott Walker's elderly parents this week.
Those public employee unions are not gracious losers. Kind of like Tom after this last election.
Arizona's charter schools receive approximately $1,000 more per pupil from the State than do public schools. That's at least part of the reason that school districts started converting some of their schools to charters. And, accordingly, it's why the State Legislature banned the practice of conversion. Those people just HATE the thought of money flowing into public-school districts.
Wrong again, Robin. As a retired N.Y. City elevator constructor I belong to Local # 1 of the Interntional Union Of Elevator Constructors. In order to work in the elevator industry in Arizona you need to join Local 140 of the I.U.E.C., a very powerful union. If you work for Pima County you can join the S.E.U. ( Service Employee's Union) another strong group.
Robin, why not give up on making any more comments. You call Vince ignorant ? Talk about people in glass houses, you need to check out a mirror.
Wow, I am in awe of how he disposed of the arguments in the email. "You wrong-o. Tom right-o." Must've been his debate team's star.
Why the hate on charters? I know someone who is on the board of (and a teacher at) a small charter school. They do get less money. This is in another state, but I think it's the same here. And, yes, I've heard the arguments that they somehow pick their students and save money not having the special programs. Some truth to it, but I know they're radically underfunded and they get their share of troubled students.
The thing is. Money isn't a magic wand. It helps, but it's what you do with it that counts. And they're able to do things you just can't do in a public school. Among other things, they pursue an educational and disciplinary/motivational system that is very effective but you could never do it in public school because of politics and unions. They also have far more activities that schools probably wouldn't have because the lawyers would say "no".
Charters give parents a choice. This is something that, before charters, only rich people had. Now parents who are tired of the bureaucracy, relentless mediocrity, and discipline problems of their neighborhood public school can, free of charge, send their children to a charter of their choice. Yes, there may be bad ones, and the system may have problems, but parents will eventually figure it out unless, gasp, some for-profit schools actually do a better job and parents send their kids there in droves.
Isn't choice a basic founding principle of this country? Whether it's religion or educational system, you should have a choice how you raise your children.
Rick Spanier, I just want you to know that long-term subs aren't there because there isn't enough money for regular teachers. They are there because they can't get teachers... We have an extreme teacher shortage in southern Arizona because of extremely low pay . Now you be saying that if the legislature paid what it should, we could have more qualified teachers.. yes I agree. Just wanted to clarify that. Plus we have a legislature that keeps cutting money, supplies and books are low. Couple that with a big group of Republicans that say really ignorant things like charter schools do better than public schools. (Astounds me that people say this. THey can look and see they don't!). I mean with low pay, inadequate materials, people saying they don't do a good job, why would they want to come to a public school in Tucson? I love the public schools. I support them in any way I can because I know how hard they work and are maligned by people who are greedy(using money from charter schools for profit and sometimes fraud) .
Vince of darkness(appropriate name to hide behind).... there are no unions in Arizona to speak of. Remember ... we are a 'right to work state'? There are unions who have no bargaining power at all. What state do you live in or are you really that ignorant? Teachers have no choice... teach or live elsewhere. Republicans also shoot themselves in the foot by creating an education system that is 48th in the nation. What companies would want to move here? Some people REALLY care about children and education and it is very evident Arizona primarily Republicans do not. Prisons are valued more by the those that keep getting elected and maybe most of the people ??? I like Senator Steve Farley a lot... he does really good things but he is the only one I can think of right now. Let's get dark money out of elections.
What a waste of time reading this teachers union propaganda. Ooh one hundred per cent "likes" too.
Maybe I will catch you on talk radio again some day Tom. This is just boring.
I have no problem with Charter Schools, in fact I like giving parents a choice. But I really do have a problem with the state cutting education funding and then turning around and, if the Governor gets his way, spending the money on yet another prison. Ironically the total education cuts (primary, secondary and higher) are about what the prison will cost. Where are his priorities?
