Re: “Phoenix Union High School District Makes a Statement

Our Founding Fathers understood the fundamental importance of Public Education in our Democracy; teaching Citizens to Understand and Respect the Diversity in our Democracy, that the very nature of our Democracy creates a Complementary/Interactive, Mutual Dependent Social System with the Requirement to provide Assistance to others when Assistance is Necessary.

The Liberal /Progressive interpretation of our Constitution, in my view, does NOT represent any threat to our Democracy. The real threat, as it always has been, is represented by Ultra Conservatives; those who would ignore the First Amendment of our Constitution; using their "Holy Book" and Money, to impose their Religious/Political views on others.

Our Democracy, as is any Democracy, inherently contentious in the competition of Political Ideologies; initially with the Federalists vs. Anti-Federalists; now with, in the main, Democrats vs. Republicans. We have developed, sadly and dangerously, into a "Democracy" that is controlled by powerful Financial Interests Groups that are using their money to "buy" "Politicians" and, as a result, control the electoral process.

The American Voter need to wake up and participate in the electoral process, at all levels of Government; using their notion of what is in the best interests of all US Citizens and their Understanding of our Constitutionally Protected Liberties. We will lose the latter if we do not.

The question is: as a car driving toward a precipice; are we at the fulcrum or have we moved beyond?

Democracy while it lasts is more bloody than either aristocracy or monarchy. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide. President John Adams

Re: “Danehy

As of December 1st, there have been exactly FOUR documented cases of voter fraud in this year's election. FOUR. In the entire country. One Iowa woman tried to vote for Donald Trump twice. Some guy in Texas (falsely) claimed that he was working security for the Trump campaign by trying to prove that he could vote more than once. A woman tried to use an absentee ballot to cast a vote in the name of her dead husband and a Florida woman who was actually counting absentee ballots was adding votes for a mayoral candidate of her choice. (There is no evidence that she did anything to the Presidential vote, one way or the other.) Obviously, Bill H. and others have been getting fake news from crap websites like WND. I don't get it. Your guy is going to be President. He and his people worked the system to perfection. But there is absolutely no doubt that Hillary Clinton will end up with nearly three million more votes than Donald Trump. She will NOT have a majority, but rather a plurality of roughly 48% to 46%. Those are facts, not Breitbart B.S. Why is it so hard to be a gracious winner?

Re: “.Nomads of a Desert City.

I knew Byrdy in Albuquerque NM back in 1998-99 when Donna Rowe was running Youth In Transition. I am currently homeless and much older than Byrdy. I wish her the best and hope she finds her way. I am currently in 12 step recovery, got Two Bachelor degrees in Criminal Justice and Sociology [to work with YIT before Donna Rowe ("Momma Donna") passed away]. To Byrdy, I would say, remember the good, forgive the bad, and pass on the love Donna gave us all...that is the path laid out before persons like us.

Re: “Phoenix Union High School District Makes a Statement

"The Constitution is a work in progress. "

Only through amendment and interpretation by the Supreme Court, NOT by violation of law. That's the fact. And the amendment process worked just as it was designed to, without it we would be like Mexico, the preference of Tucson liberals where their is no rule of law and the legal age for girls is 12 and 90% of girls are sexually abused by the age of 16, mostly by family members.

Re: “Phoenix Union High School District Makes a Statement

Let's see. The Constitution was in existence during the period of slavery, when all kinds of human rights abuses were committed, legally, in this country. The Constitution was in existence during the period in which the suffragists were jailed for peacefully demonstrating in favor of women being granted the right to vote. When the suffragists went on hunger strike in the jails where they were imprisoned, asking to be classified as political prisoners and granted the rights of political prisoners, they were force fed. At one point the powers-that-be tried to get at least one of the suffragist leaders committed to a mental institution. These are FACTS in American history. There are others that could be mentioned.

So what was up with the "rights" and "a judicial process that insures those rights" for African Americans before the 13th amendment and women before the 19th amendment? I suppose if some of the commenters in these streams had run across an abolitionist before the 13th amendment or a suffragist before the 19th amendment they would have said "Illegal is illegal - case closed," and the abuses and denial of rights would have continued.

The Constitution is a work in progress. You can respect it and be grateful that we have it without believing that at any given point it is necessarily perfect and necessarily guaranteeing that no failures in the delivery of justice are happening in our country.

On another subject, I'm really tired of the insults and name calling that keep appearing in these streams. Many people are angry about the results of this election, and others are angry about what their political adversaries are saying about the results of this election.

Seems like it should be possible to compare perspectives and opinions without resorting to incivilities.

Re: “Phoenix Union High School District Makes a Statement

"What makes anyone think that American law is more immune from error than German law during the 1930s? Than the law in the USSR during Stalin's purges? "

One of the top ten most ignorant posts ever and certainly more proof of the Hate America liberal indoctrination occurring in our public school systems.

It's called the US Constitution and it guarantees rights and a judicial process that insures those rights.

Dallas has frozen Police and Fire pensions because they have over promised and over spent. Dangerous combination, but it is exactly what Tucson is doing.
