The Twitterer-in-chief only saved 1,100 out of approximately 2,000 jobs on the line with a special incentive paid to Carrier of $700,000 a year for the next 10 years, which will come out of Indianas state budget, to keep the factory open. No wonder his casinos went bankrupt.

Don't worry about the Grand Canyon. I'm sure it and every other National Park are under consideration for new Trump hotels and resorts. The Twitterer-in-chief promised jobs and thanks to America's untapped natural resources and treasures just lying there for the taking, well let's just say you better see them sooner than later.

Please dont try to explain Medicare when it is painfully obvious that you know nothing about it.

Re: “The Skinny

Raytheon has a $1.6 billion profit the first 3/4 of 2016 -- so why do they need our taxpayer dollars?

Raytheon has also laid of hundreds of workers locally and in other states in recent years. Why is no one even asking if there will be a net gain or loss of jobs?

Jim Nintzel calls reportage in the online Arizona Daily Independent "general bullshit." You can compare the corporate " incentives" story in Monday's ADI (November 28) with this column and decide for yourself which better deserves that title.

Re: “The Skinny

When it comes to Raytheon, let's stop the entire "it's all good if it increases jobs" BS. You'll get my support for such policies when Raytheon shifts to an all communications technology company or something of the sort instead of a company that relies on a corrupt, illegal war machine. Ya think?

Re: “The Skinny

This whole story is anti taxpayer. The city wants to increase sales tax while the county has to increase property taxes because none of them can manage money. And Miller is the nutcase?

Did you just claim that the ACA was unnaffordable? Well welcome to the party. Doctors had to be cotoff from Medicare money to fund ACA so seniors are left holding an unfullfilled promise oncecagain. I know, lets raise the age of eligibilty and hope that more die off before they qualify. It worked for SS. Not.

Once again we need leaders, not liars.

Re: “The Skinny

TUSD needs to improve in many areas. I'm optimistic that the new governing board will make progress in reversing the downward trend.

I'm also pleased that Dr. Stegeman will return to ask more of the hard questions the public needs to have answered.

Perhaps, with the addition of Rachael Sedgwick to the board, the consensus will trend toward more transparency and accountability. That seems to be what the voters wanted.

Re: “The Skinny

As for Foster's viewpoint, others can speculate about that. I periodically renew a longstanding offer to meet her for a cup of coffee, but after more than three years I am not optimistic that it will ever be accepted.

Re: “The Skinny

I do not recall ever seeing Nintzel at a board meeting, but maybe it happened long ago. (Of course, many persons watch the video stream who rarely attend in person.) In general, I think this portrayal (I hate Foster, I am a Sith Lord, pick your flavor) comes out of a conversation that runs through a mostly closed political circle of people who rarely if ever talk to me. It is fed by persons who see me (accurately) as a threat to the status quo. Except for MAS, which was a serious issue, it rarely refers to any actual TUSD issues. That is probably because most of the public would agree with my positions on the issues, so to reduce my effectiveness the status quo must turn it into a conversation about personalities. But the people who really care about improving TUSD should pay more attention instead of simply whipping the froth.

Re: “The Skinny

Mark, why not invite Nintzel to a board meeting? Then we can see how he reports what he sees and hears.

Is he usually there? I'm not sure why he thinks Foster hates you. Was it something she said?

Re: “The Skinny

I do not hate Kristel Foster, and I guess that few persons who actually watch board meetings have formed that impression. In an ideal world, such charges would be accompanied by evidence. I strongly disagree with the way that the self-identified "board majority" has run TUSD, but that is a policy not a personal statement.

Re: “The Skinny

One of the authors of Prop 205, off the record, blames the loss on the fact that they got too greedy, writing it to give the current medical dispensaries and growers very close to a monopoly in the recreational market.

That is why I almost voted against it. He said that they will modify it next go-around to open it up.

Re: “The Skinny

Thanks. It's funny that everybody you can't find common ground with is a troll, but you are the only one that doesn't comment on the article. You comment on the commenters.

At times, the word can be abused to refer to anyone with controversial opinions they disagree with.[17] Such usages goes against the ordinary meaning of troll in multiple ways. Most importantly, trolls don't actually believe the controversial views they claim. Farhad Manjoo criticises this view, noting that if the person really is trolling, they are a lot more intelligent than their critics would believe.

Is that what's got you down?
