Re: “Prop 205: Let’s Make a Deal

I support legalization, but am leaning against voting for this, and not because of the scare tactics and lies put out by the opposition.

The MPP has become a lobbyist for the industry, as opposed to a lobbyist for legalization, as it formerly was.

Dude, that is the most realistic picture of Trump which I have ever seen!

Thank you, Mr. Danehy.

Re: “Ask A Mexican

Well, you fall into the lazy trap of blaming homelessness on laziness. Most homeless are in that position due to mental illness, drug addiction (including alcoholism) or both. Of the rest, many are not lazy, they just can't manage to fit into our crazy 9to5 world.
It's all for yucks I know, but I hate that stupid cliche.

Re: “Remind Me Again, Why Does Arizona Have a Teacher Shortage?

The National Academy of Sciences just released a study showing the annual fiscal burden across local, state, and federal government imposed on taxpayers by immigration is $43 billion - $299 billion.

Wouldn't be a shortage if the seats weren't filled with children of illegals. And there would be TONS of money for our children.

Re: “Police Dispatch

Let's see.... You do a beautiful article on Wendy and her mental illness and this article demeans someone who likely has mental illness. Which way do you want to have it? Can't have it both ways, Weekly.

Is it me, or is there a Sons of the Pioneers reference in there?

Re: “Remind Me Again, Why Does Arizona Have a Teacher Shortage?

Flowing Wells has a truly great man, Jim Love. It's funny, the history of Floing Wells and Amphi is that large ranch owners essentially picked their own district boundaries for tax and control purposes. By the way I am a property tax payer in TUSD. The obsession with Sanchez is a treatable condition. I have broken bread with him at a state meeting. I can confirm he does not have horns growing out of his head.

Re: “Remind Me Again, Why Does Arizona Have a Teacher Shortage?

Hey, "Frances Perkins," why does Flowing Wells have a much smaller % of teacher vacancies than TUSD?

Following your logic, it must be because they pay their teachers much more than TUSD.

Oops, no -- that's not it.

Getting a lot of hits from Adelita and Kristel and Cam's Facebook friends, David? I bet whenever anyone raises the issue of all the teacher vacancies in the district (and all the classrooms on the West side filled with subs) the three rubber stampers of all-things-HT-Sanchez link one of your lame blogs to "demonstrate" to their ignorant supporters that none of this is their fault (or $500K-per-year-HT's fault).

Too bad there's no vetting of valid information in this publication. Whoever "oversees" your work (IS there anyone? Mari Herreras: hello? anyone home?) obviously has no conscience whatsoever in the area of ensuring the readership of their sad publication is not misled by bad, tendentious, and self-servingly selective "information."

Hillary will make college debt free. Pick a new car and order some food. Everything is free because successfull hard working people are liars and cheaters and they owe you something. Help yourself.

Re: “Remind Me Again, Why Does Arizona Have a Teacher Shortage?

No matter what rhetoric ensues, the reality on the ground is, school districts throughout Arizona cannot fill teaching jobs. And guess what "choice" geniuses, charter school turnover is also huge. Hard to make a profit unless we pay teacher very little, even with the "voluntary" teacher improvement donation funds. Western Arizona districts lose scores to California and Nevada every year. Indian communities all over the State have a very difficult time filling jobs, even as they try to grow their own, and plug the gap briefly with international teachers. Funny how the "market based" solutions advocated by the right never apply to the teacher shortage. How many teacher candidates would we have if the Statewide starting salary was $50,000 with benefits?

Then move to Hawaii. Obama's home state is worse. 8 years squandered just to give away the internet.

Re: “Voucher-friendly 'American Federation for Children' PAC Spent $218,000 on Arizona's Primaries

No, I leave that for you, the personality I would rather not have.

I must make an appointment with the Doctor to get some stronger or different medications. I can't believe that I'm actually arguing with myself online.

Imposter What, Again - you seem to make a habit of stalking along with your identity problems.

Do you also hang out at elementary schools stalking?

Re: “Katy Perry: Back At It Again With The Tucson Reference

I understand what you're getting at Debra L, but you gotta admit, Peabo was right about TTT (The Tangerine Tyrant) getting beat like an orange rug.

Whether you agree with Peabo or not, you at least have to admit he's clever.

Have a nice evening and please try to stay open minded.

Re: “Katy Perry: Back At It Again With The Tucson Reference

What, Again you might need some more medication for this one...

http://www.mediaite.com/online/chelsea-clinton-criticizes-trump-for-invoking-her-dads-past-juanita-broaddrick-responds/

Plus it looks like Madonna is taking her clothes off for Hillary. Is this something that Trump doesn't know about yet? Does it include Rosie O'donnell?

Up the meds What, Again.
