Re: “Tucson Sentinel is Going to Photograph Every Mile of the Arizona-Mexico Border

I expect we will need to excuse them for taking some of the pictures from afar. I can't envision Tucson journalists hugging the border along the crest of the Tule Mountains, for example. And will the 197th mile be particularly interesting? How about the 196th?

Re: “Education Bills in the Lege (Which May or May Not See the Light of Day)

Once again I will ask my same question: why do the "likes" not show up on these comments?

Re: “Education Bills in the Lege (Which May or May Not See the Light of Day)

Would love to see HB 2476 pass. God knows teenagers could use sex ed. It'll never pass though. Esp with "I hate all education" Ducey sitting in the catbird seat.
Looking at most of the rest, other than JTED funding, they just make me think I'll be glad when the legislature is back home.

Re: “The BBC has Popped Up in the Desert

I agree MJS .That's a good start. Tucson has so many diverse cultures.. The food trucks alone offer a fantastic look into Tucson's diversity.
Tucson is also a town of relocated refugees from all over the world.
The music and art scene is second to none compared to many cities across the contry.
Keep it midtown and downtown.
This is the Tucson I know and love.

Very interesting, David. Thanks for putting this handy synopsis together for us. I am particularly interested in the Public School Tax Credit bills - never understood why private and schools were treated so differently, this levels the playing field a little.

Re: “Obama's State of the Union Address is Coming Up Later Today; VP Joe Biden Wants to Make It Pretty

It is over and yes obama was blowing smoke. Biden just jumped up and down like a cheer leader. Pelosi was a better cheer girl. What a joke. LOL

Re: “TUSD's Sanchez Responds to Ducey's Budget

It is not too early to consider a recall petition. In a week, Governor Ducey has shown what he considers important -- private prisons. Second, his education policies are unbelievably short-sighted. They will hinder our efforts to improve the teaching of our young. What sort of foresight is that? Balance the budget today and damage tomorrow is a bargain with the devil. If this is the governor's finest hour, I don't think our state can stand what lies ahead under his "leadership."

PattyM - she needs to be, at a minimum, the heck out of our country. 'She's' a two time criminal.

Re: “TUSD's Sanchez Responds to Ducey's Budget

True, we can't fight the plutocrats head to head, they have too much money, but why not make it an attrition thing, start a recall movement, every candidate they elect, we recall. Wear them down to where the payday isn't so great anymore.
I don't see any other option until we regain control of the electoral process

I thought we were posting in favor of good quality education. I didn't see any rules about content. What page are they on?

Re: “Education Bills in the Lege (Which May or May Not See the Light of Day)

I just reread my post, and it's still not about Obama or the Congress.

There are some interesting bills up there, worthy of discussion. An opt-out of standardized testing bill. A progressive sex education bill. Proposed changes to public and private school tax credits. A repeal of the anti-MAS legislation.

Re: “ICE Responds to Abuse of Transgender Detainee Allegations

Again, What Again, putting someone who identifies as female and has had feminizing hormone treatment into a cell full of men is inviting her to be raped or otherwise sexually violated. Regardless of her immigration status sexual attacks and being assaulted are not a part of the INS rules..

She needs to be, at a minimum, in a cell of her own in order to ensure her safety. Better, in a woman's facility.

Re: “Education Bills in the Lege (Which May or May Not See the Light of Day)

And now Republicans defend any and all tax breaks, credits and incentives for the 1% at the expense of the 99%. Big, big list of issues the Republicans were for, until Obama agreed and now they are against it. Raging hypocrites, Kelly Ward, and Paul Gosar leading the parade. How's Clive these days, there, Kelly?

Obama, Rat T? Obama? Do all roads lead to Obama bashing? That's a stretch in a post about Arizona legislation. Stay closer to topic, please.
