Re: “Dear Mr. President

Today is Orange Day!

It will go down in history as one of the worst days of all time.

Watch and learn people. You get what you vote for...pardon me, what I meant to say was...you get what the electoral college votes for.

Orange Day will live in infamy!

Re: “Southern Arizona Sanctuary Movement Makes a Statement

Don't expect David Safier to get the details right when he's reporting about his political adversaries. His technique is more scattershot: blast them with whatever you've got, real, distorted, and / or invented. Cf. his attacks on the IEC TKF before the TUSD Board election.

Does he care who and what gets hurt in the process? The truth, people with whom he disagrees politically, or local parents donating and volunteering generously to try to improve our schools?

Not a bit.

The most laughable portions of his blog are those where he tries to work up righteous indignation about "fake news" and distortions of THE TRUTH by his political adversaries. As if he's not guilty of same, and regularly.

Re: “Save Our Guns

Yo paster. What fake news site did you get those fake numbers from? The Onion? Newsmax? Wow, they're not even close enough to call passable BS. So sad.

Re: “Trump's Election Has Been Very Good For K12 Inc.

"You may have heard of Democrats for Education Reform. Like the AFC, it's a vocal charter supporter, though a somewhat quieter voucher supporter." Not sure where you're getting your information from because DFER has never supported vouchers, only charter schools. However, given the fact that you misidentified AFC as AFT throughout the article, perhaps it's not surprising you don't have your facts straight.

Re: “Trump's Election Has Been Very Good For K12 Inc.

Liberal plantation?

Sometimes I come back and read my commentary and realize just how much of an ignoramus I truly am.

At least I'm still more of a know it all than the average pinko commie Tucson "progressive" liberal.

Pardon me, my incontinence has struck again. Time for me to get myself unsoiled.

Re: “Danehy

Exactly! look at all those that attended their wedding, long after she became a citizen.

After becoming engaged in 2004, Donald and Melania were married in an Anglican service on January 22, 2005, at The Episcopal Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea in Palm Beach, Florida, followed by a reception in the ballroom at Donald's Mar-a-Lago estate.[41][42]
The event was attended by celebrities such as Katie Couric, Matt Lauer, Rudy Giuliani, Heidi Klum, Star Jones, P. Diddy, Shaquille O'Neal, Barbara Walters, Conrad Black, Regis Philbin, Simon Cowell, Kelly Ripa, then-Senator Hillary Clinton, and former president Bill Clinton.[42][43] At the reception, Billy Joel serenaded the crowd with "Just the Way You Are" and supplied new lyrics about Donald to the tune of "The Lady Is a Tramp".[42] The Trumps' wedding ceremony and reception were widely covered by the media.[38] Melania wore a $200,000 dress made by John Galliano of the house of Christian Dior. wikipedia

She is legitimate. get off her back.

Re: “Pre-rolled Legislation

So some members of our legislature are wanting to make it harder for the citizen to override political incompetence. Other members (Thorpe?) want to hobble student voters. This is a shameful way to govern. I personally wouldn't vote democrat, but my republican vote should not be considered guaranteed...

Re: “The Skinny

"Even before President-Elect Donald Trump disgracefully laid into civil-rights hero and Congressman John Lewis after Lewis said Trump was not a legitimate president"

Think through those actions from start to finish. Are you really that blindly partisan and hateful?

You forgot that the civil rights hero also lied. He has a history of doing this. He would not attend Bush 2000 Inauguration. So now he has done it again. Then he tells us that he believes in forgiveness. But fails to forgive.

Major Owens is a supporter.

Re: “The Skinny

I just left another thread where we were lectured that Trump changed his views and that made him illegitimate. Which is it?

TW-the height of cynicism.

@Open Minded and Liberal 2017:

1) Donald Trump's wife became an American citizen in 2006.

2) Donald Trump's wife's first name is Melania.
