Re: “Danehy

" Excellent column, Mr. Danehy" God how embarrassing.
Almost as bad as John Stewart interviewing Obama last week.
I really thought John was going to go down on Barry and my wife would accuse me of watching porn.
It must be the "dog days" of summer because you are obviously " mailing it in" Tom.
Let's trot out the old " pay your fare share of taxes" column.
The heat must be making you nasty too.
I noticed that the name calling is in high gear. Last week Huckabee the " Jesus Freak".
This week it's that stale old "tea bagger" taunt. You should apply for an IRS job and you could really
stick it to us. Lois Lerner would love your ass.
Isn't your pastor teaching on "civility" at mass anymore Tom?
No he's probably too busy talking about " Climate Change" or maybe the beauty of Sanctuary Cities.

Re: “Danehy

Excellent column, Mr. Danehy. Your viewpoint is an important exposure of the fallacious basis for many extreme political positions about taxation. Funding education adequately is essential for the future of the United States. You contribute to furthering that objective. Thanks.

Re: “Danehy

Tom's usual mouth, same old points, different week. I think if our taxes went to schools, fixing bridges from falling down,securing the border and a proper national defense, people would not mind paying them or even more. Instead it goes to stupid Obamacare and other handouts, worst of which is foreign aid to countries who hate us.

Re: “Danehy

You guys don't even understand what you write in comments.

Smaller class size with nicer facilities leaves less room for salaries and profits.

Now I see who really cares about the kids. And it's not the public school warehouses.

By the way breakfast increases childhood obesity. Fatten them up with free food and ask us to pay for health problems.

Very progressive of you.

Re: “Danehy

Bravo Tom, another factual column that will be lost on the rubes who repeatedly reelect the same dimwits over and over while the state sinks into the sewer and the jobs never come here. When is the state going to get slammed for stealing the COLA that education was mandated to get years ago? The judge ruled they have to pay a continuously changing amount (depends on who you read) but no contempt of court ruling after the legislature says that they won't pay. As for Governor Douche bag and his promises we see more of the big con job in action.

At 79 when people ask me about living in Arizona I tell them that it is a great place to die but if you have kids or are looking for a job go some where else to live. A great way to lose friends is to advise them to start a life here.

Re: “Danehy

Realpatriot...take the total amount of annual funds provided to TUSD from ALL sources and divide it by total number of students. It's not $4,000.

Add to that the fact that many K8 private schools have tuition under $5000 and they even finance/build the facility costs into it.

Public school math got you down bubby?

Re: “Danehy

It's very hard to argue with a well-informed, intelligent man, and win. It's impossible to win an argument with an idiot. An acquaintance of mine refused to pay taxes until the federal government took his land away from him in payment. He then proceeded to live "under the radar" by doing jobs for cash only, never declaring the income to the feds or the state. I told him that if he became sick or injured, us tax payers are going to have to pay his medical bills. He said that he didn't want anything from the gummint. Well, he got hit by a car while riding his bike, it required brain surgery and lots of therapy to help the poor guy regain his life. He didn't have the hundred of thousands of dollars it took to repair him. Good thing he qualified for ACCESS. After he got back on his feet, He had the audacity to tell me that he credits God with saving his life, and that he thanks God every day. I told him that God didn't save his ass, us taxpayers did. If it weren't for us folks who pay taxes, he would have been left to die in the street where he was run over. He said that he didn't ask for taxpayers to pay for his surgery. I said that he had to file to qualify for ACCESS, that's the same as asking the taxpayers to pay his medical expenses. To this day, he still feels that he does not owe the government nor the state, nor the taxpayers who saved his life a single thing.

Re: “Danehy

No, more money isn't the automatic fix but it is interesting that the best private schools advertise small class sizes, the best teachers, wonderful facilities and the latest technology to attract students. All of these things take money. In Arizona, the average private school tuition is about $10K. State provided funding per pupil in public schools is under $4K. Can more be done with more money? Absolutely. Claiming funding doesn't matter is a myth perpetuated by those who are to selfish to do the right thing for our kids.

Re: “Danehy

Israelis hate Obama and the current government as much as tea party members. Oh look I guess it isn't whites only.

More money = PRIDE?

You are wrong again.

Re: “Danehy

Not sure the mantra " higher taxes mean better schools" is accurate. Too many examples ( Los Angeles, Chicago, Philadelphia, DC etc etc.) of schools getting big helpings of cash but the students don't benefit. When Baltimore had all the riots, the schools had some of the nation's highest per student spending levels but only 40% of students read at grade level while 99%+ teachers got satisfactory or better ratings.
I guess folks who actually pay taxes want value for money. If public schools don't deliver it, then it makes sense to explore alternatives.

Re: “Danehy

The NY Times just released an apology for misleading the public on the Planned Parenthood videos. They now say they were not edited and the full video always was available to them. Funny they waited until the first debate was over.

What other tricks will you liberal progressives stoop to?
