Re: “House Republicans Tie Homeland Security Funding To Undoing Obama Exec Action on Immigration

Maybe, just maybe the Republicans got there heads out of there asses and grew some balls and are going to do what we the people put them in office to do and get reed of the illegals, the criminals that have been breaking our laws for years. I won't be holding my breath.

Re: “History of Goldwater Institute's Very Bad Civics Survey

I usually don't comment on my own posts, but rereading it just now, I saw two big ol' dots I failed to connect. Matthew Ladner, who wrote the reports and short pieces pushing the bogus data in the civics survey, was on Ducey's transition team, as I said in the post. Wanna bet Ladner was pushing the civics test, and that he was the one who either dragged out the old study for people to read, or brought up the 96 percent failure figure? I could be wrong, but . . .

Matthew, if you're out there googling your name and you happen upon this post: did you bring up the 96 percent figure to the Ducey team? If not, did you warn Ducey's speech writers that they shouldn't cite the bogus G.I. study in the State of the State speech?

Re: “Danehy

At least when people turn out in protest, they'll be able to rally around "Drop Ducey".

Re: “Danehy

Nice job - I'm going to cut and paste the part about running a business having very very little to do with governing and post it everywhere I can. The notion that they are the same thing baffling to me.

Re: “The Skinny

What's interesting about the lack of detail both in Ducey's campaign rhetoric and in his State of the State address? He was State Treasurer for four years! If four years did not give him the necessary insight into the budget and state operations, what will? Mr. Business either can't read a spreadsheet or doesn't want to.

Re: “Danehy

I can't believe the bottom half of the sixth paragraph. If that's true, Obummer would at best be back on the streets of Chicago stirring up shit or at worst doing 15 to 20.

Re: “TUSD Should Wait for Court Ruling Before Making Changes to Its Ethnic Studies Programs

Mark,

Ms. Douglas has come out publicly in support of working with TUSD with the objective of reaching an accommodation permitting the program to continue and be offered in more of the district's schools.

What juices are there for her to stew in?

Re: “Danehy

I really liked last weeks column about Pancho Villa, it is good to re-visit the history of certain political personages, and remind folks of historical facts.
And this weeks is written poignantly. We will see if this next cat sitting in the Governor's office will not, judging from his crony roots, disappoint us too.
East Valley News Net, if Tom Danehy's, articles are a waste, And, this Rag, Why are you wasting your valuable time responding to it? Thank you Tom. Sincerely, Mick Smythe.

Re: “House Republicans Tie Homeland Security Funding To Undoing Obama Exec Action on Immigration

Jim Kolbe wasn't honest? You got me to googling and it looks like you knew something that I had missed. What is it about going to DC that causes this?

Re: “Danehy

It reads like a manifesto of someone that has no concept of business. Franchises are purchased and have no guarantee of success. That does not make it pyrimadical.

For gosh sakes, start your own business. See how it works.

Re: “House Republicans Tie Homeland Security Funding To Undoing Obama Exec Action on Immigration

I'll have to give Martha McSally credit for showing a hint of independent thinking on DACA, even though she engages in wishful thinking about "Border Security". I really hope she turns out to be more honest than Jim Kolbe...

Re: “TUSD Should Wait for Court Ruling Before Making Changes to Its Ethnic Studies Programs

Agree. TUSD is caught between the Courts and the Legislature and the Courts' opinion trumps the AZ GOP's War on Tucson. Let Ms. Douglas stew in her own juice for a while.

Re: “House Republicans Tie Homeland Security Funding To Undoing Obama Exec Action on Immigration

It can cut both ways. But based on our opinions both sides are destroying the country?

Interesting. We do have common ground.

Why is this publication SO slanted towards the program? Isnt the press SUPPOSED to report the news, instead of trying to influence it??? Whatta rag.

Re: “Giffords and Kelly: Congrats McSally, Now Get Working on Gun/Stalker Legislation

It seems clueless to all of the posts that Jared Loughner had threatened several people at Pima Community College. This sent the police to his home to tell him to get a psych exam before returning. This alone should of promoted 2 things to happen 1- a restraining order not allowing him on campus and to show cause why it was ordered. 2- Threating is a crime our wont prosecute unless it can be plea bargained DA Barbra LaWall fell short. Oh but dipstick can go blame radio conservatives. Where was a deputy tell me you called and she didn't ask why call, stupid response. And the people re elect these people back into office. So pima county gets what it puts into office. I am a descendent of John Moses Browning the gun inventor from Utah. What is allowed for the general populace to own is not right, I would support for legislation to not allow weapons designed after 1926 to be privately owned. This would allow for all sporting activities and police could not own or posess more than 2 service supplied weapons.
