This is like the lottery, you can't win unless you play. It's hard to see who's winning here.

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

Come on teach. What they were talking about was his vote to defund it.

Barber touts that he has voted against repealing ObamaCare six times. Barber has also voted against defunding or delaying ObamaCare. This should come as no surprise because in 2009 Barber expressed his support for a public option, which would have given the federal government even greater control over the health care system.

You can't always trust fact check or snopes as they have serious political leanings.

Re: “Remembering Wendy

I wish to say so many things, but I don't know what to say. Well, I do, yet it is too much - this comment box will not allow for all of it. You are amazing Wendy! We (society) failed you, and I am still trying to determine the big picture lesson with all of this, yet in the 'minutia' - I miss and adore you.

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

When Return on Investment for money spent on getting the education to be certified is good for the job you can get, then you will see more teachers. When the job itself is doable, with supplies and infrastructure available, you will see more teachers. When the teacher is given the lead on what happens in the classroom then you will see more teachers because those who are teaching won't be saying, "I love my job and the kids, but..."

Re: “Prop 205: Let’s Make a Deal

Chelsea Clinton speaks on marijuana:

During a speech at the Youngstown State University in Ohio last weekend, Chelsea Clinton said that there is new evidence to suggest that marijuana could be fatally interacting with other drugs.

"But we also have anecdotal evidence now from Colorado, where some of the people who were taking marijuana for those purposes, the coroner believes, after they died, there was drug interactions with other things they were taking," she said when asked about Hillary Clinton's position on marijuana research.

Chelsea Clinton's spokeswoman added that the Democratic nominee "has said we should allow states that have reformed their marijuana laws to act as laboratories...

Re: “Prop 205: Let’s Make a Deal

Here is the Debate Between Maricopa County attorney Bill Montgomery and MPP & Holyoak on prop 205.

I will have to give some considerations to Bill as when he speaks he represents on how authority acts and represents itself. Bill words can reflect in current ongoing litigation on hundreds of avenues.

Holyoak does not have that burden and is not responsible for anything really but let's get this going to so how it looks.

This debate has been broken up and editorialized to just a few sound bites this is it in the entirety. If you are really concerned watch it. You will see the stories 90% of the marijuana convictions are for posession simply just not true. Just what liability does Arizona Political Director for the Marijuana Policy Project, Carlos Alfaro have to lose ? nothing he gets paid either way he is a political hack.

The debate; http://www.azcentral.com/videos/news/politics/arizona/2016/09/21/90797362/

Re: “Prop 205: Let’s Make a Deal

sgssmith:
And just what are dark money factors could you please elaborate?

I bet if this passes and the departments & employees will be civil servants. That is the staff that would go to makeup the department and all of it's divisions. these people are represented in the work force by Civil Service and labor union agreements. We already have these agencies.

Right now we have a right to work state. But does not include government workers as they are in both labor represented with employment. I propose all workers in the dispensaries, growers, processors, caregivers, bud tenders, be union represented.

If all workers were represented and limited as the amount of outlets and licenses given. Why can't they pay start at living wage of $20.00 to start with retirement and 401k contributions ? Yea I bet the colors on the camillian change quickly. It would be money the patient paying out the "hmmmm" progressive owner's pocket would this be considered then DARK MONEY going against representation?

I bet we will hear that they can't do it and afford to keep the prices they are. But the truth is, it is a limited price fixed market commodity that dark money has 2 sets on the board. And 4 community activist that are clamoring for hand outs how's that for DARK money.

Let's tie legislative pay to Marijuana tax and pay every legislature $100.000 annually and a staff and office cost to cap @$ 250.000. that would be 31,500,000. That's the achilles heel to dark money people what they represent dont need income. It is directed through Government contracts and departments. It is there in the back side.

With estimated tax revenue @$123 million at current prices and burden leaving 91 million for schools operating costs. Just think this would give Guadalupe, Gila Bend, Willcox, Havasupai, Sierra Vista, Page, San Luis, Douglas, all equal representation not just the rich PHX dark money center. That keep the money in PHX.
