Re: “Editors Note

Gee, it never crossed your mind that she's not into the idea of feeding a troll?

Just like Tom Danehy, she's a lot smarter than you give her credit for.

Re: “TUSD Sideshow

Make What, Again respectful and not a racist again!

Wait a second, he was never respectful and not racist.

He has said he is a Christian, but you can tell he's using that as a veil for his racism.

True Christians cringe at everything he decides to post.

Re: “TUSD Superintendent Firing Update: Nothing To See Here, Folks (For Now).

I have been to a few school board meetings and heard them discuss agenda items that had actual little kids and educational programs under careful discussion: just a boring but productive recollection that has no relevant connection with the current reality. Some commenters here write like they want to hurt somebody, at the least.

Re: “TUSD Board Meeting Scheduled For Tuesday, Feb. 21. Only One Item on the Agenda

Deja vu. Bash and crash the TUSD superintendent. Then hire another. Bash and crash. Then another one. Repeat process ad nauseum to the satisfaction of ornery ignorant people with nothing good to say about anybody.

Re: “TUSD Sideshow

First, the reporter counted wrong. There were more than 3 people who spoke in opposition to Sanchez. Furthermore at least 3 senior TUSD administrators broadcast emails trying to get people to come out in support of Sanchez. The TUSD email system was used! Ms. Foster also put an effort into getting people to turn out to support Sanchez. If after all that effort only 20 people showed up to support Sanchez, that's not much of an endorsement for keeping him.

There was no effort at all to get people to speak in opposition to Sanchez.

The November TUSD Board election was a strong vote to bring serious change to the district. Continuity lost; positive change won. And that is what Ms. Sedgwick is doing. She has exhibited courage in the face of multiple despicable attempts to smear her and damage her reputation. To understand what is going on in TUSD, my advice is to watch a few Board meetings and skip reading the Tucson Weekly for a while

Re: “Jerry Falwell Jr. to Head Trump's Higher Ed Deregulation Task Force. Expect a Big Boost for Liberty—Falwell's Liberty University, That Is.

I went to the fully-accredited (regional accreditation by the Higher Learning Commission) for-profit University of Phoenix and I can honestly say I received an exemplary education and it was much better than any education at any not-for-profit state public universities I have attended. I learned amazing skills and consider myself a scholar who is published and notable in his field. The University of Phoenix curriculum was rigorous, meaningful, relevant, and applicable. Not all for-profit schools are "bad" and many schools are changing and adapting to the new rules, for the better! Oh, and let us not start a new form of discrimination where we discriminate against for-profit graduates. These are some of the hardest working Americans I know! And those who complain about not finishing UoPx they could not handle the rigor. Do not ever undermine anyones education. I love the University of Phoenix, enrolling students since 1976, and so do its 1,000,000 Alumni!! Surveys conducted suggested that 92% of alumni are satisfied with their education and outcome. Finally, DO NOT forget that the University of Phoenix educated the non-traditional students and I thank the University of Phoenix! The University filled a demand where traditional academia would NOT! Stop vilifying my school!

Re: “Cultivating Community

I noticed that David Safier, after a load of criticism, just scrubbed all of his suck-up comments from Kristel Foster's FB page. Though Joan Safier is still on there channeling Donald Trump, calling the new board member Rachael Sedgwick a "bitch."

Classy.

This guy is your education columnist? Come on, Tucson Weekly. Now, of all times. Have some integrity.

Re: “TUSD Sideshow

This shows absolutely no understanding of what we do as public officials that represent a school district.

I'm sorry Foster/Grijalva machine. we pretty much know exactly what you do. And many of us want you to stop it.

Re: “Editors Note

Mari, I really can't thank you enough for making my point for me. It's been 3 weeks now since you wrote how proud you are of your 15 year old son that he knows that President Donald Trump is a racist. A " fact " he no doubt learned from his mom. I challenged you on that asking what facts you have to base that on. I'm sure if you had any you would come back at me with both barrels. Instead nothing. Silence. That's because you don't have a shred of evidence that Trump's a racist. Unless it's something you heard on the View. I hope you're proud that you filled your young sons head with lies and misinformation.
This is why I love the Left . Confront them with facts and they turn tail and run. You can't beat me in the arena of ideas. Never have. Never will.
Q.E.D.

Re: “Death in the Arizona Borderlands

Strategically placed the wall will prevent the US from looting Mexico of indigenous animals. Over the last 50 years there have been over 200 species , basically stolen from Mexico by us. They must be captured and returned. We owe them that much.

Re: “Rural Resistance

A more relevant question would be, why not ask these people about the environmental impact, trash and trail cutting caused by illegal immigration. How about some perspectives on the Cumero fire, which burned over 2,000 acres just over the hills from Arivaca last year?

Re: “Death in the Arizona Borderlands

We obviously need more visible border security to discourage these people from crossing. We should also stop encouraging these dangerous trips by putting water and other supplies in the desert.
