Re: “The Fake News Frenzy

The News might not be literally fake, but the media has had a vendetta against Mr. Trump and the people he represents.
For years the media establishment has supported mass immigration, globalization at expense of the working class, LGBQTXYZ-ism and other causes that most Americans really don't support while for the most part denigrating most traditional values of the working class.
So while the "fake news" charges are hyperbole (hyperbole from Mr. Trump???) the political fight of the middle and working classes against the media establishment has valid reasons behind it.

Re: “A Dollar a Day, and Other Observations About Ducey's Education Funding Proposal

The thing is, he is still robbing Peter (Hurf, road funds) to pay Paul (schools). On top of that, a legislator is finally proposing added tax to fix roads (http://tucson.com/news/local/lawmaker-is-seeking--cent-hike-in-arizona-s-gas/article_d0745c84-d084-5000-a4eb-b3d043e7eace.html). But until the state gets back to honoring its line item funding/expense I don't see how any of this does any good. Voters specifically voted for school tax money which went elsewhere (remember the $300M?) and other things I have probably forgotten, but Ducey is not managing that way and legislators seem to follow him at this point.

Re: “Cinema Clips: Paterson

Wrong Cinaste.

This review may be somewhat condensed, but it gets the point across, especially to those of us who are fans of Jim Jarmusch. If you want a long, drawn out review, search the internet. I can't imagine there isn't one there for you.

Re: “The Fake News Frenzy

Ok, here's how it works folks:

If the news you read slanders conservatives but favors libtards, it is Fake News.

If the news you read slanders libtards but favors conservatives, that's the Real Deal.

Don't you pinko liberal commies understand anything?

Kenneth Groves - "Since the media is owned over 90% by six far right wing republican companies..."

Well there's some ignorance and Fake News for ya'. 1) Those are public companies, 2) All with the exception of News Corp have leftists as their CEO's and Boards.

You ignorantly seem to think that wealthy equals Republican yet the 8 richest are all lefties as is most of the evil Wall Street.

Re: “A Dollar a Day, and Other Observations About Ducey's Education Funding Proposal

But we are robbing Peter to pay Paul. The Highway Trust Fund was established as a "trust fund" to prevent raids like this. Taking money from the already under-funded highway system will just assure continued deterioration of our State highways, especially the rural parts of the State. While I strongly support our public schools and have personally given tens of thousands of dollars to public school classrooms through www.adoptaclassroom.org, I cannot support robbing our road money. Remember, the annual fiscal crisis at the legislature has been brought on by over two decades of irresponsible tax cuts by a succession of administrations. Time to reverse course, methinks.

Re: “A Dollar a Day, and Other Observations About Ducey's Education Funding Proposal

You failed to acknowledge that there will be a greater funding weight for low income/high performing schools. There is a path for increased funding and it's up to the school leaders to make the choices to expand, replicate or improve. The majority of the low income/high performing schools are in Southern Arizona.

Re: “The Fake News Frenzy

Oh, and to the statement that we are not a democracy. Only in the minds of right wingers who do not want one. In truth we are a constitutional democratic republic. We the people elect representatives in a direct democratic vote. . . .https://www.reference.com/government-polit…

Re: “The Fake News Frenzy

Since the media is owned over 90% by six far right wing republican companies I'm always amazed by those who call the media "so liberal it's literally the democratic party". This is what a conservative business site says. Oh yeah, a lot of the rest is owned by Mitt Romney (ClearChannel) . . http://www.businessinsider.com/these-6-cor…

Re: “Cinema Clips: Paterson

This is a skimpy, rushed and superficial review which lacks any form of criticism, analysis and depth. There's no attempt to analyze Paterson's character or his motivation for writing poetry. There's no description of the relationship between Paterson and Laura, nor is there any mention of the culmination of events, over an entire week, that explore and define Paterson's psyche. A devastating loss occurs towards the end of the film, and a beautifully filmed redemption is ultimately realized. Yet this Grimm review stolidly sticks to cliche, formula and ultimately, a contempt of the viewer's intelligence.
