Re: “Review: Hillary’s America: the Secret History of the Democratic Party

This review is as twisted and academically immature as your writing skills are. I will never get the hour and twenty-seven minutes or so of my life back. I wonder if a movie such as this revisited the Trump ticket from the REAL Republican ticket through the reason he feel being orange makes any sense whatsoever. You are an embarrassment to the Libertarian party as it sits.

Re: “Dead on Arrival

"Ramis makes an appearance as well in one of the movie's few inspired moments."

But I thought he was dead. Wait, a dead star making an appearance in "Ghostbusters"...that got very meta very fast.

Unless, of course, they just pulled an Ed Wood and cut some old unused footage of him into a new film.

I don't know what's creepier, CW13; the fact that you actually keep a running tally of likes and dislikes, or that you're trying to time-manage me.

Re: “TUSD Enrollment, 2000 to 2016, Part 2

I think it's great that you're interested in these numbers but this is far from a real statistical analysis. Using the term "significantly" is misleading because the word "significant" is a term of art in statistics. When something is statistically significant it's because the numbers have been analyzed using actual statistical models (like a regression model). You can also isolate variables to actually look at the data at a much deeper level and make much stronger inferences about what's going on and answer more questions. Which students are leaving? What areas of the town are they leaving from the most? Are actions TUSD is taking slowing the decline in enrollment or are there other factors at play? Did the economic crisis influence student mobility?

You're just making a very broad and vague statement/generalization with a few raw numbers that may or may not have any actual significance. The district should commission a study and do just that.

Re: “TUSD Enrollment, 2000 to 2016, Part 2

Not even filling the seats with illegals can stem the flood of students fleeing TUSD. How much destruction can Adelita Grijalva and H.T. Sanchez commit on our school system?

Re: “Review: Hillary’s America: the Secret History of the Democratic Party

Thanks, Peabrain. I can always count on dead from the neck clowns like you who know how much I love dislikes, but hit them anyway. Bozos like you make it too easy. Funny how you needed almost an hour and a half between comments to get them all in.

Re: “Desert Angel

Water in the desert does not guarantee total protection from exposure and elements. It simply convinces them to take further risks with their lives. Why not pick them up and drive them to TUCSON? Is that too much to ask?

Re: “Editor's Note

You think? Maybe if third party movements could get their shit together they could have a bigger voice and actually help shape policy. They haven't yet, with the regrettable exception of Nader, who helped give us W & Cheney. Thanks, Ralph. Bernie was able to pull the Democratic Party to the left because he ran as one, plain and simple.

Re: “TUSD Enrollment, 2000 to 2016

This is interesting. TUSD lost more teachers in 2015-16 than it lost students. In the 3 years under Dr. Sanchez, TUSD has lost about 1200 teachers out of 2500 teachers. There have been over twice as many resignations as retirements. TUSD is losing teachers faster than it can hire them.

Re: “Desert Angel

Joel has been this man you see, since we attended High School in Berlin, Germany. He is a giving, serving, compassionate man, who works to guarantee that a human being has access to the most basic and necessary thing, a glass of water. I cannot in my heart begrudge another human being, a glass of water. If you can, may God have mercy on you, in that day you see Him.

Re: “Desert Angel

As a volunteer driver for Humane Borders myself, I have witnessed the extraordinary dedication, knowledge, and skill that Joel Smith brings to our humanitarian mission. Every one of us looks up to this incredible person for guidance.

We don't take sides in the immigration debate. Our mission is to save lives.

I have a few questions for the haters and twisted souls who vandalize our water stations and call us criminals and other bad names. Do you really believe that undocumented migrants deserve the death penalty? Don't these desperate people, as fellow human beings, deserve our kindness? Have you read the Sermon on the Mount lately?

Re: “Review: Hillary’s America: the Secret History of the Democratic Party

Thanks, but no thanks. I'd rather drink beer with the chickenshits. D'Souza's nothing but a propagandist, like Michael Moore. And a heavy-handed one at that, like Michael Moore. Sure doesn't sound like a good time to me. Or an informative one.
