I agree with the previous post that Grijalva is a bona fide jerk.

I really have to get a life and get my mind off of the Clintons. They're long gone and my shtick is beyond ancient. You'd think I'd be happy because Shill Hill lost but the truth is that I'm never happy. That's why I troll on this site. I enjoy spreading my unhappiness around!

Kind of hard to buy into Bundy's "rugged individual" act when he's got that government teat stuck in his mouth. He's the worst kind of freeloader, an unappreciative one.

Re: “Grijalva Blasts GOP Plan To Use Fuzzy Math To Justify Federal Land Sales

The Bundys paid leasing rights until 1993 when the EPA tried to put him out of the ranching business in defense of the Desert Tortoise. An odd choice to make. One must believe that no animals should become extinct or evolve, as long as we can stop doing everything we used to do.

He chose to break an old law. But like the Clintons always say "that happened in the past, in his personal life" That's none of our business...Right Bill?

Re: “Private School Vouchers Are Bad For Arizona. Discuss.

Another love letter to Ann-Eve Pedersen and the Pima County Democratic Party establishment, pointlessly promoting their pet projects and ideologies. What a surprise.

Like just about everything else in Safier's blog, this post has nothing to do with improving the lives of students in Southern Arizona, and everything to do with channelling money to his political affiliates. Democrats want the money in the pockets of the political machine associated with public school districts, Republicans want the money in the pockets of the political machine associated with charters and privates.

Who is serving the common good in all this, and asking whether education funds channelled in any direction in this state are actually resulting in quality services being delivered to students, in public district schools, in charters, or in privates? That's the important question to answer.

Re: “Private School Vouchers Are Bad For Arizona. Discuss.

Vouchers won't help straighten TUSD out, though it will be necessary to continue funding vouchers for alternative schools if state and local education officials cannot get their acts together to do what IS necessary to straighten TUSD out: add funds TOGETHER WITH oversight to ensure that the funds are actually applied to IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF SERVICES TO STUDENTS.

What does not qualify as applying funds to "improve the quality of services to students"?

-- giving $10K annual bonuses to central administrators
-- compensating Sanchez at the rate of $1,000 a day for 40 "unused vacation days" every year
-- taking money from sadly underfunded K-12 programs to add TUSD day care centers
-- proposing to invest in Fruchtehendler-Sabino pipelines while magnets like Utterback go begging
-- voluntarily giving $3 million in desegregation funds back to taxpayers while several magnet schools don't have the $$$ to ensure their magnet-related faculty and support positions are filled

Etc., ad nauseam.

The list of idiocies in the application of funds in a district serving 1/3 of the students in Pima County during Sanchez's tenure is long and depressing. Until Safier's favorite Governing Board members and Superintendent stop flushing public money which is supposed to benefit STUDENTS and TEACHERS down the toilet, how can it be ethical for us to support anti-voucher advocacy? Sadly, the mismanagement in a district "serving" almost 50,000 students locally is so severe and damaging that students DO need alternatives. Don't block access to the lifeboats if you can't keep the ship from sinking.

Re: “Grijalva Blasts GOP Plan To Use Fuzzy Math To Justify Federal Land Sales

More federal lands have been closed to more Americans that at any time in history. And for this man to complain about their ability to not show the income from land leases....? Please. All the democrats have done is piss and moan about how miners and cattle ranchers were paying nothing for land that belongs to all of us. And now you want them to have to show an accounting? I don't ever remember seeing an accounting of income derived from these properties and an accurate accounting of how the money was used for ALL Americans.

The democrats have become the obstructionists they complained so loudly about in the past. Serves them right. Suck it up cupcakes.

I sure hope they do. It will help straighten out TUSD much faster.

Re: “Looks Like the Office of Congressional Ethics Is Still in Business—For Now

Thanks for the update. Though I didn't vote for McSally I let her know and gave her a thumbs up for her resistance to this blatant over-reach by other elected members of congress. Hey, if they're not guilty of anything then what's to fear, eh?

This publication is not intended to improve the local economics or politics for the benefit of it's citizens.. It has much loftier goals.

I just can't remember what they are.
