Re: “Review: Hillary’s America: the Secret History of the Democratic Party

Thanks, Peabrain. I can always count on dead from the neck clowns like you who know how much I love dislikes, but hit them anyway. Bozos like you make it too easy. Funny how you needed almost an hour and a half between comments to get them all in.

Re: “Desert Angel

Water in the desert does not guarantee total protection from exposure and elements. It simply convinces them to take further risks with their lives. Why not pick them up and drive them to TUCSON? Is that too much to ask?

Re: “Editor's Note

You think? Maybe if third party movements could get their shit together they could have a bigger voice and actually help shape policy. They haven't yet, with the regrettable exception of Nader, who helped give us W & Cheney. Thanks, Ralph. Bernie was able to pull the Democratic Party to the left because he ran as one, plain and simple.

Re: “TUSD Enrollment, 2000 to 2016

This is interesting. TUSD lost more teachers in 2015-16 than it lost students. In the 3 years under Dr. Sanchez, TUSD has lost about 1200 teachers out of 2500 teachers. There have been over twice as many resignations as retirements. TUSD is losing teachers faster than it can hire them.

Re: “Desert Angel

Joel has been this man you see, since we attended High School in Berlin, Germany. He is a giving, serving, compassionate man, who works to guarantee that a human being has access to the most basic and necessary thing, a glass of water. I cannot in my heart begrudge another human being, a glass of water. If you can, may God have mercy on you, in that day you see Him.

Re: “Desert Angel

As a volunteer driver for Humane Borders myself, I have witnessed the extraordinary dedication, knowledge, and skill that Joel Smith brings to our humanitarian mission. Every one of us looks up to this incredible person for guidance.

We don't take sides in the immigration debate. Our mission is to save lives.

I have a few questions for the haters and twisted souls who vandalize our water stations and call us criminals and other bad names. Do you really believe that undocumented migrants deserve the death penalty? Don't these desperate people, as fellow human beings, deserve our kindness? Have you read the Sermon on the Mount lately?

Re: “Review: Hillary’s America: the Secret History of the Democratic Party

Thanks, but no thanks. I'd rather drink beer with the chickenshits. D'Souza's nothing but a propagandist, like Michael Moore. And a heavy-handed one at that, like Michael Moore. Sure doesn't sound like a good time to me. Or an informative one.

Yeah, don't bother, Vinnie. You've got nothing to contribute.

Re: “Editor's Note

What exactly makes you think your vote for Clinton in Arizona will do anything at all to prevent a Trump victory? Arizona's electoral votes are going to Trump, end of story. If you don't believe that, you're living in a far more fantastical land than Bernie supporters were accused of when they called for free tuition and Medicare for all. There are about 28 states in the union responsible for preventing a Trump victory, and we ain't one of em.

A vote for Gary Johnson or Jill Stein (if she manages to get on the ballot after the Green Party deadline fiasco) goes a lot further in actually helping the country - increasing their vote percentages can lead to third-party participation in future debates and allow them to qualify for additional funding. In fact, by wasting your vote on Clinton in an overwhelmingly Trump state, you're doing damage to the country by signaling support of Hillary Clinton's neoliberal mandate.

Re: “Desert Angel

Please tell me you didn't really say " If you look at the planet from space there are no lines".
I can do a thousand words on weak shit like that, but why bother.

Re: “Editor's Note

Sorry, Mari, but the only reason that third parties don't win is because people don't vote for them.

There's no way I can vote for Clinton, who approved of thousands of refugee children being sent back to danger to "send a message to their parents." I can't vote for someone who has brokered some of the largest international arms sales in history (can you say cluster bombs?) but then claims she's for "gun control." I will not vote for someone who thinks that the U.S. has the right to intervene in other countries' elections (e.g., Honduras), while she oversaw the theft of the Dem primary (http://electionjusticeusa.org/index.php/re…). I could go on and on.

I refuse to vote against my conscience and my values. No one, even you, seems able to make a reasonable argument for why anyone should vote for Clinton except "OMG Trump!" The DNC built this, they own it, but they don't own me. We've been saying for months that Clinton cannot win against Trump, but we have been ignored.

I'm voting Jill Stein, Green Party. I hope you join me.

Re: “Editor's Note

Both candidates have turned the parties upside down. Maybe that's a good thing.
