Re: “Southern Arizona Sanctuary Movement Makes a Statement

Wed. Aug 31st in a campaign speech in Phoenix.
We are going to triple the number of ICE deportation officers, Trump said. Within ICE, I am going to create a new special deportation task force focused on identifying and quickly removing the most dangerous criminal illegal immigrants in America who have evaded justice.

Then make sure to furnish their house so that they don't (hopefully) file charges against your orange ass!

Re: “Dear Mr. President

Orange is the new BOSS.

By the way, my mimic should probably educate itself as to the purpose of the Electoral Collage. While imitation is allegedly the sincerest form of flattery, I'm not flattered by your ignorance, and no one is impressed by it.

Have the snowflakes really sunk so low as to be resorting to the "I know you are, but so am I" strategy?

Re: “T.H.R.E.A.T. Watch Begins in Earnest

"Houdini-level verbal escape artists who lie, deflect, distract"...what does that remind me of, locally?

Oh yeah:

(In the Buckmaster program, the lies, deflections and distractions start at about minute 33, when David Safier first opens his mouth and starts doing his SPIN on Prop 123 spending in TUSD.)

FYI, David, the frog has already boiled and he is long since dead. The turning point may have come in 2008, when it became clear that the financial industry in this country would be allowed to get away with anything, like a naughty child whose mommy excuses his destructive bad behavior and makes the servants (in the US, the work-for-a-living, taxpaying, gullible middle class) clean up his messes for him. At this point both sides, Republican & Democrat, are fully immersed in lies, deflections, distractions, spin, all masking the fact that Wall Street and / or the billionaire class owns both major parties. Different party, different set of hedge fund managers or industrialists. "Would you like the vanilla or rainblow flavor of neo-liberal capitalist exploitation?" That's the "choice" the American political system offers us at this point.

The NYTimes has this THREAT watch beat well covered, so you can leave the national scene to them and go back to defending the Grijalva network in Tucson. From the looks of recent TUSD Board meetings, they have their own set of THREATs to deal with, and they will no doubt continue to need a lap dog to yip at their enemies for them.

(Nintzel has already been at it, with Rachael Sedgwick:
I'm surprised you haven't joined him yet.)

Re: “Dear Mr. President

I'm not sure why I refer to a huge rock group as an itty bitty snowflake.

And I also have no idea why I love Vagisil and toast with orange excrement on it.

Please take me away to the Funny Farm. It's the only place I will possibly ever fit in.

Re: “Danehy

I can't help but feel sorry for good 'ol Tom. And not for the just the usual reasons. How he's proud to admit that his wife is the bread winner in the family. His total contribution is writing for the Weekly and teaching a bunch of 16 year old girls how to run up and down a basketball court. What I'm referring to is the rotten week he's having. It started for anti-gun Tommy last week up in Phoenix when an armed citizen saved the life of an Az. state trooper by blowing away the scumbag who was attacking him. It got worse when let 'em all in Tommy found out that he was here illegally. And now today. President Donald J. Trump. So for the next 8 years you can write all the anti-Trump columns you please and it ain't going to make the slightest difference.
I'm looking for my first 100 dislike comment. Can you do it?

Re: “A Dollar a Day, and Other Observations About Ducey's Education Funding Proposal

Conservatives want the taxpayers to pay for three school systems. The real public schools, the unregulated charter school profit industry, and unregulated private religious schools. They are perfectly happy to "throw money at the problem" as long as they benefit directly, like your Senate President. Put it to a Statewide vote in plain language, like they are constantly whining about for public school bonds and overrides, Do you approve of your taxpayer money going to unregulated, for profit charter schools, and unregulated private religious schools, Yes or No. Betsy DeVos tried it in Michigan and hoped her bank roll could convince the voters in that State. They voted overwhelmingly against it.

Re: “Dear Mr. President

Looks like the itty bitty snowflake AZ/DC is one again pretending to be someone else, "Proud to be an American".

Don't be afraid cupcake AC/DC - use the vagisil and everything will be just fine.

Re: “Dear Mr. President

Today is Orange Day!

It will go down in history as one of the worst days of all time.

Watch and learn people. You get what you vote for...pardon me, what I meant to say get what the electoral college votes for.

Orange Day will live in infamy!

Re: “Southern Arizona Sanctuary Movement Makes a Statement

Don't expect David Safier to get the details right when he's reporting about his political adversaries. His technique is more scattershot: blast them with whatever you've got, real, distorted, and / or invented. Cf. his attacks on the IEC TKF before the TUSD Board election.

Does he care who and what gets hurt in the process? The truth, people with whom he disagrees politically, or local parents donating and volunteering generously to try to improve our schools?

Not a bit.

The most laughable portions of his blog are those where he tries to work up righteous indignation about "fake news" and distortions of THE TRUTH by his political adversaries. As if he's not guilty of same, and regularly.
