Re: “Desert Angel

I'm sure every construction worker who's lost their livelihood to illegal immigrants appreciates his efforts.
At least this guy is motivated by compassion instead of greed. Unlike the politicians and corporations that keep the border open to keep American workers' wages low.

Re: “Wednesday at the DNC

Bernie would've lost without anything the DNC did. He lost straight up on the votes and he lost by a wide margin, wider than Hillary lost to Obama in '08 I believe.

Re: “Editor's Note

Canada still sounds like your best option. You can't comprehend the difference between test and strength. That's exactly what iscdraggingbthis countryvdown. Indecision and poor decisions. Hillary and Bull have enriched themselves on this countries good will and ignorance. So that's your vote? Even Bernie fell for it.

Re: “Tucson Sentinel Unearths Treasure Trove of Ally Miller's Emails That Demonstrate She's a Big Fat Liar

Hillary did NOT do the same thing. She did one of those things (used a personal email server). But at the time that was not illegal or even unusual. Colin Powell did the same thing.
Today it's clearly spelled out as illegal (or at least unethical, I'm not sure).

But, but, but, everyone loves Hillary and she did the same thing, but to an even greater extent.

Re: “Wednesday at the DNC

What many people see as a major political party undermining its own popular grass-roots candidate to install a highly-flawed candidate who is funded by huge corporations, rich donors seeking political favors, and foreign interests, you describe as "the DNC acted rather childishly and made some silly remarks". That's a bunch of Malarkey!

The DNC is obviously not worried about a Trump presidency or they wouldn't have nominated a candidate who loses to him badly in major polls. So neither should we be. After all, he just acts childishly and makes some silly remarks, right?

We're told repeatedly to vote for the lesser of two evils. But the lesser of two evils is still evil, and lesser evil leads to greater evil. Anyone who votes for either major party nominee is complicit.

My heart breaks for the future of the U.S. with either of these candidates at the helm.

Re: “TUSD Enrollment, 2000 to 2016

If you want to test my theory Google "public school fraud" and just take a look at what comes up. Fake classes to increase enrollment numbers. Financial fraud, test cheating, providing answers or grade fixing to appear to be delivering improved results. Page after page from city to city.

Re: “TUSD Enrollment, 2000 to 2016

If they lie about enrollment numbers are they receiving money for fraudulent reports? I would call that no accountability. Should we hope it gets better from there? How many have been caught already stealing food from the government feeding programs?

Lack of accountability causes this.

Re: “Wednesday at the DNC

Bernie was cheated, and so are all his supporters. I couldn't believe he endorsed that lying witch. I'll vote against her and the democrats for cheating.

Re: “TUSD Enrollment, 2000 to 2016

No, Rat T, I am not saying there is no accountability in "the public school system." I am saying there have been serious and repeated failures of governance and administrative accountability in a specific public school district (TUSD) during a a specific period of time (for the last three school years) under a specific set of leaders (Sanchez, Grijalva, Foster, and Juarez). Fortunately, in a democratically controlled school system, every time a governing board election rolls around, the electorate is offered another opportunity to solve whatever problems have developed with leadership.

Re: “Get In Touch With Downtown's Paranormal Side With Specter Tours

Not a scam we are aware of the website issues and working on fixing them. Tickets have been on sale with group on for several months and we are on yelp. Tours are currently closed from July until August. The tour has an emphasis on history as well ghost stories. The stories are researched and locally sourced. Not simply made up.

Re: “TUSD Enrollment, 2000 to 2016

So you are saying that there is no accountability on the public school system? I thought these were factual, audited and proven records.

It has become an asylum.

Re: “Wednesday at the DNC

Sanders just left the Democratic party. He lied to us, they lied to him and he wants to go back to where he was as an Independent Socialist. A real socialist would have shared the millions he got from the Clintons to fold his tent and endorse her.

Awful stingy socialist and awful greedy power hungry democrats. Let's vote before they import more voters.

Re: “TUSD Enrollment, 2000 to 2016

David, what makes you think the numbers TUSD is providing on its website are accurate? TUSD has been caught so frequently in lies, evasions, misrepresentations and inaccuracies in its communication with the public during the last three years, there's no trust left. At this point I and others who have taken the time and exerted the effort necessary to pay attention and consult multiple sources of information trust data provided by the district that has not undergone cross-checking / independent verification about as much as we'd trust Vladimir Putin to give us the "real scoop" on what has gone on in Chechnya if we sat down with him and had a "heart to heart" on the topic.

Wherever information provided by the district seems to indicate that things are improving, it is especially suspect because this is exactly where past misrepresentations have occurred, and during the period immediately preceding an election that will determine whether or not Ms. Grijalva and her associates will maintain control of the Board is prime time for it. This is how the sausage gets made, right? Let's not have a case of the vapors over a little judiciously placed political massaging of the numbers, right?

So noodle around with TUSD stats as much as you like, what you report on that basis alone is not worth the time it will take to read it.

P.S. I do not know a single real person unaffiliated with the Grijalva network who has had direct experience of TUSD schools during the last three years who will tell you that services delivered to students have improved rather than deteriorated. Add that datum to what you get out of TUSD stats.

Re: “Bill (and Hillary) Clinton's For-Profit College Problem

So, you're just blowing off the $55M Laureate received from USAID(the State Department)? And you don't care about all the underwater Federal Student Loans that Laureate students got and are now defaulting? This is a scam like Trump U only just more audacious and involving the US taxpayers. The technical term is GRAFT.
