Re: “"Martha McSally Is Not Answering"

RAR Repeal and replace is right for Americans, making your comment nonsensical.

Re: “"AZ Schools Now" Town Hall Will Give You a Chance to Be Heard On Public School Funding

The Arizona constitution states the cost of a university education should be nearly free! Ha ha what a joke... All the education dollars go toward deadwood professors and administrators!

Re: “"AZ Schools Now" Town Hall Will Give You a Chance to Be Heard On Public School Funding

Did all 10 of the education groups in Arizona Schools Now! push Proposition 123 for Governor Ducey, or only some of them? Are they now left holding a completely empty bag....as Ducey ignores them, once again, when he doesn't need them? Backroom deal-making was rampant prior to 123: I understood that at one point some consortium of these groups made Ducey an offer: just pay off 25% of the money the state owes to the schools and we will leave you alone, happy with our funding. It was No Go...and on to Prop 123. A) who do these people think they are and B) what did they think they would receive for our schools in response to trading away our kids' future chances for public education?. Not only did they push 123, the 123 monies didn't even make it to the teachers in TUSD (where the members of these groups that I am familiar with either send or sent their kids). So I am left wondering whether Arizona Schools Now is actually meant to benefit students or if, at least locally, they are instead meant to shore up various political players here in Pima County?

Re: “"AZ Schools Now" Town Hall Will Give You a Chance to Be Heard On Public School Funding

If we could take the money spent educating illegal immigrants and the children of illegal immigrants and all the associated extra cost of ESL, etc. we would have plenty of money to educate our children.
As your average taxpayer why would I ever vote to spend my hard-earned tax money on education when I know half of it goes to pay for educating illegals who have 3, 4 or 5 kids in the system to my 2?

Slidesow?

Is that what you call your mattress which we see in the photo above?

That title is very revealing Mr. Again.

If I remember correctly TUSD received monies for pay raises and TUSD did not get it to the classroom. I can't see giving them more money, because I know what they do with it. Close some more schools and sell the property. You have plenty of money, plus that would put those properties back into a tax funding position instead of tax free.

Re: “"AZ Schools Now" Town Hall Will Give You a Chance to Be Heard On Public School Funding

Maybe we should look at the highest level of liberal indoctrination institutions for the money.

"Over a six-year period, Ivy League schools have received tens of billions in tax dollars, bringing in more money from taxpayers than from undergraduate student tuition. In fact, they received more federal cash than 16 state governments. "

"The spending is controversial because these eight schools -- Brown University, Columbia University, Cornell University, Dartmouth College, Harvard University, the University of Pennsylvania, Princeton University and Yale University -- have enormous resources at their fingertips, including endowment funds (money raised from donors) in 2015 exceeding $119 billion. Take that total and split it up among Ivy League undergrads and it comes out to $2 million each."

Re: “A Tucson 17-year-Old Loves Her Hometown, and the Internet Explodes

You won't pay more attention because I'm too angry? What kind of weak excuse is that?

I have displayed no anger here. In fact I was downright polite to you, considering you couldn't even read my post correctly.

Melt elsewhere snowflake. Nobody needs you here.

I am not sure what makes you think that she is an illegal. But after all your huffing and puffing, why couldn't you just not comment? It seems to be negative of others. Let her have her time.

Re: “Streets of This Town: Queen-Sized Beauty Rest and Some DNA.

Brian, may I suggest a slidesow of the entire series? A profile of the 5th poorest city in America.

Maybe with a picture of the proud and smiling mayor and city council?

Re: “A Tucson 17-year-Old Loves Her Hometown, and the Internet Explodes

I wonder what Wrong, Again is going to post here to ruin this happy little moment.

Will it be something about the liberals driving us down to be the 6th poorest city in the country? Will it be something about what a ggrreeaatt sanctuary city Tucson is, so please bring us more "illegals" because we just don't have enough? Will it be something about how the TW keeps deleting his posts and it's only because they don't conform to the liberal standard...not because they're off-topic, disrespectful, full of name calling, racism and are just plain nasty?

Well, looks like I covered all of your stale bases Wrong, Again, so don't bother to post a comment here. Let's leave this one stain free, okay?

Re: “Education Budget Rumblings from D.C. — All Cuts, All the Time

Republicons don't believe it's necessary to be educated because they rely on what they know already which is virtually nothing. Every other civilized nation in the world values education above everything else but the Repubtards in the United States consider it a waste of 7 years of their time since most of them couldn't make it above the 7th grade. But don't get me wrong they did go to school for 12 years except they repeated the 3rd,4th,5th grades,then three years in the 7th does account for that time. The ones who managed to learn rudimentary reading are the conservative politicians that decide our fate today. If the Republickunts could finagle the education system into the pockets of their wealthy donors,give a sub-par education to our children, and relegate Progressive Democrats to an insignificant bunch of whining know-it-alls then we might as well have never left England to become an independent country.

Re: “"Martha McSally Is Not Answering"

I called her when POS Trump was dishonoring a golf star family during his campaign for president and her reply was " I do not get involved in political questions". Being a veteran myself I thought she was voted in by us veterans to protect our interests and answer our questions. As usual another politician hiding behind her party. I am an independent voting veteran that will never again vote for veterans that do as their party says instead of what is right for all Americans.

"What, Again is exactly right, again!"

You could threaten to stick hot pokers in my eyes and I still would never, ever say that.

I have an account dumb ass. You know, the type of account your chicken shit ass never bothered to establish.

You can't imitate me successfully. I would say nice try, but that would be a lie.

Get out of the basement and do something constructive Wrong, Again.

P.S. : I notice that you're being a snowflake about your comment being removed. You should be used to it by now, but the crybaby in you just can't take it. When your commentary is off-topic and disrespectful, it may actually get removed. Imagine that!
