Re: “Phoenix Union High School District Makes a Statement

"Then Herod sent and killed all the male children in Bethlehem and in all that region who were two years old or under." Matthew 2:16

Legal, according to the law of the day.

There is legal, and then there is ethical. There is legal, and then there is humane.

How many cases throughout history have there been where the law has been out of alignment with what is just? It would be impossible to list them all.

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? Every society has to balance respect for the law with trying to discern cases where what is legal in a particular time and place may not be what is right. That's what individual conscience, for those who believe that such a thing exists, is meant to do.

Re: “Phoenix Union High School District Makes a Statement

Thank you, David, for highlighting this constructive statement of a commitment to protect and nurture every student in a diverse student body. From what I've heard, Phoenix Union has constructively applied the desegregation funding allocated to it to support student needs and achieve student benefit. The ATTITUDE of leadership -- evidenced In statements like this, in the quality of relationships developed with representatives of the courts and plaintiffs, and in how funds are actually applied in the schools or in central admin or in litigation -- is so important in an educational community serving the underserved. A constructive attitude rigorously focused on student benefit has been sadly lacking in some other districts applying desegregation funds.

Dare I think that that may be part of your point here? No, that would probably be too much to ask.

Re: “Phoenix Union High School District Makes a Statement

Hmmm. Too bad they don't choose America, the Constitution of the United States, the rule of law, not man.

Liberal indoctrination of our children is destroying our country. Americans must take back our public education system. Liberals, 'progressives', are exploiting our children for their own political ideology and to stuff their pockets with taxpayer dollars.

Re: “Phoenix Union High School District Makes a Statement

Phoenix Union High School District should be commended for the implementation of the following:

Jesus Christ is an instrument of peace. Where there is hatred, He sows Love; where there is injury, He pardons; where there is doubt and despair, He brings hope; where there is ignorance and bigotry, He brings understanding and tolerance; where there is sadness, He brings joy.

Jesus Christ taught not so much to seek to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love; for it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is through Love that we are able to transform Ourselves and Human Society

(Modified after: "Prayer of Saint Francis", Marquis de la Rouchetulon, L'Osservatore Romano, December 1916.

One person is responsible for what happened at the Pizza joint. Otherwise you could blame automakers for building a car that moves forward or backward. Or beer companies for a person blowing a .10.

Yes, there has been a lot of focus Trump's juvenile personality. But his and his circle's use of social media do warrant serious scrutiny, especially when a tweet can cause stock to dip or send an unhinged follower into a family restaurant to pop off a couple rounds. Could we see the first armed conflict started by a tweet? I hope we never find out. Flynn has shown himself to be unfit for duty, largely by revealing his lack of judgement through his social media posts.

Re: “Betsy DeVos Set To Join the Trump Cabinet's Billionaire Boys [and Girls] Club

Usually when a troll says "Have a good day" in their posts, they know they've defeated and they have ran out of ammunition.

Yet, here you are again to bring more of your off topic nonsense to this thread.

Stop it already.

Timely article. Thanks.

I'll be visiting and likely buying a special piece for a west-facing window.

Re: “Gen. Michael Flynn, Conspiracy Tweeter and Trump Whisperer, Is a National Security Risk

No one is even in office yet. Soon, it will be time for the media at all levels to quit getting all "wee-wee'd up" about Trump-Twitter rants or casual remarks and fairly and factually report day-by-day policies and legislation and government workings. Team Trump went visiting the West Wing of the White House and asked how many workers there were staying and how many were leaving. They did not know that ALL of them are leaving. Get serious.

Sorry, TCST. You can reference the Greeks all you want, but your use of all-caps outs you as a self-important d-bag. Now, saunter back to your jasmine scented recliner and plot your next rejoinder.

Re: “Gen. Michael Flynn, Conspiracy Tweeter and Trump Whisperer, Is a National Security Risk

It has been with some enjoyment that I watched the reactions from the angry, bitter and lost on the far left. It never seems to matter what source is cited, because according the the angry it is not credible. And then name calling begins. I have to believe the Weekly has no rules on comments because nothing is enforced. Personal insults, name calling and bullying seem to be standard fare here. TW please clean up this site from name calling.

If Dems Had The Right Agenda...you hit the nail on the head! Thank you.

And peabo...CNN ran a special tonight on Barack Obama, the most important figure in our lifetime, and how to preserve his legacy. It should have been entitled "Eight Years Squandered."

Now let's fix what's wrong with America.
