Rat... that all ya got. Same old same old. Take no blame or responsibility and pass it along to someone else.
No wonder the right wing is dying out.
Nice sermon NJYD. Please explain Phoenix and Prescott. Leave the hatred out of your explanation.
You can not fix a problem until you identify the source. How long are you willing to wait?
Teachers are no different than truck drivers? I would like to see the average Teamster entrusted in the company your average high school (16 or 17 year old) girl.
We feel your hatred. "liberal democrat, ptooo!, (spits on the ground)". Funny thing is, that used to be just a label to distinguish one's political leanings, and not a synonym for "devil incarnate".
America is a diverse country and fundamental to our democracy is reasoned, intelligent debate. If we start with the premise that anyone who disagrees with us is the devil, and hence no debate possible, you'll be relegated to the sidelines, which is where extremists belong. "Conservative republican" used to mean people like Everett Dirkson or William F Buckley, reasoned, intelligent men who knew compromise was part of the game. Now these men couldn't run for dogcatcher because they won't pledge allegiance to extremism, can't pass the litmus test.
Some think the dinosaurs all died in a great cataclysmic firestorm. I prefer to think their might was overcome by those treacherous little mammals who lured them into the tar pits
He's a tool, but a useful tool. He has work to do to secure the boarder. Simply play that chalk board screeching voice night and day over loud speakers and nothing will want to cross.
NYJD check yourself with the Phoenix and Prescott area landing one company after another.
Tucson is the problem. Os should I say liberal democrats are the problem.
Plain and simple folks, Tesla nor any other legitimate corporation is not going to locate anything in a state that routinely elects buffoons who can't stop shooting themselves in the foot and make national news doing so. We can't afford the circus to continue.
Antenori = carpetbagger. Or some sort of -bagger.
The other party is the one that allowed Tesla to get away. Who is the bigger buffoon?
The problem is there are still lots of buffoons like Antenori in the one party dictatorship in the Arizona legislature. Their education policy actions are just plain wrong. Their education solutions are just wrong. No data supports their policies. Yet they keep doing what apparently Moses brought to them from the mountain. And their policies are wrong. Unless their actual goal is resegregation of schools, and the complete turnover of public schools to for profit corporations.
That's right. We're all against free speech aren't we?
He is a non-entity. Why give him a forum?
I guess the teachers' unions ruined it for their members by following the votes in the Legislature on educational issues, and allocating their political action committee funds based on how the legislators actually voted. No wonder few Republicans can get endorsed by the unions. They keep doing debacles like this one. Go away, Antenori, far, far away!
Antenori is just showing his true colors as usual and that is why he will never be an elected official again unless he moves. So teachers are being paid what the market can bear and they are the same as truck drivers; (no disrespect to truck drivers) some truck drivers make more money than teachers without having any degrees and they don't have to put up with all the crap from the legislature, the state, the district, the admin, and the students. Teachers put up with so much abuse from other people's kids that they would never take from their own children. Maybe it is time for teachers to go on strike so Antenori can see how the market bears that. He can bring his buddies along to teach classes in economics while using the strike as a learning experience to teach the students how the market, capitalism and civics works.
Antenori simply wants to forget about the people of the state of Arizona. He conveniently ignores the fact this entire issue revolved around a vote of the people. The legislature did not simply back away from one of its own projects. They turned their back on a vote of all the people. And, yes, Frank, when the people vote they do get to tell the legislature how to spend money.
Ever since John Marshall was the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, more than two centuries ago, courts in this country have had the power to overrule decisions of the legislative branch. That is not a violation of the separation of powers. Part of the balance of power among the three branches of government is the authority given the courts to overrule questionable legislative action.
By his own words he flaunts his disrespect for the people of the state of Arizona. Elected officials are...and should be...accountable to the public, not the other way around.
I've insulted my intelligence by reading this. Kudos to you, Tom, for actually listening to this stupidity.
Former state legislator? I guess that says all anyone has or needs to know about this fellow, he is a regular shill phone call to the local right wing shock jock right winger propagandist here in Tucson, on 104.1 FM radio!;-) These folks from up in Phoenix, Michigan/California seem to think they are going to convert us all down here in Tucson to right wing lunatics!
When Antenori was (sadly) in the Legislature, I was thrown off of the AZ Star comment board when I described Antenori as a Neanderthal (with apologies to Neanderthals everywhere -- who were probably MUCH better people than Frank could ever be.)
His fact-free right-wing mindless rant described here pretty much validates my opinion of him then.
He got his "world view" from the back of a fascist, libertarian, mindless-war-monger cereal box and parrots his venom wherever he's given the opportunity. It's too bad there are rabid, content-free radio channels in this town that continue to "give him the opportunity"...
Let's put Frank in that same class, and see how long it takes the students to either shape up or run off whining to the nearest TV camera about how hard it is to learn.
Why even bother speaking with a has been discredited troglodyte state senator? How is this drivel germane to the real problems facing teachers in the state today?
No one else in elected office or running for office would speak with Tom?
Leave commentary on education to Safier who's been in the trenches and has the experience and knowledge to make his points at more than a sophomoric level (giving Danehy credit). I don't always agree with David but I respect his command of the issues and his hard won experience as a teacher and advocate for his colleagues.
