Jeeze, you guys. Your man-baby won but you sound more unhinged than ever. What's the matter, tulips, afraid Santa's not going to give you that internment camp for Christmas?

Re: “Phoenix Union High School District Makes a Statement

Let's see. The Constitution was in existence during the period of slavery, when all kinds of human rights abuses were committed, legally, in this country. The Constitution was in existence during the period in which the suffragists were jailed for peacefully demonstrating in favor of women being granted the right to vote. When the suffragists went on hunger strike in the jails where they were imprisoned, asking to be classified as political prisoners and granted the rights of political prisoners, they were force fed. At one point the powers-that-be tried to get at least one of the suffragist leaders committed to a mental institution. These are FACTS in American history. There are others that could be mentioned.

So what was up with the "rights" and "a judicial process that insures those rights" for African Americans before the 13th amendment and women before the 19th amendment? I suppose if some of the commenters in these streams had run across an abolitionist before the 13th amendment or a suffragist before the 19th amendment they would have said "Illegal is illegal - case closed," and the abuses and denial of rights would have continued.

The Constitution is a work in progress. You can respect it and be grateful that we have it without believing that at any given point it is necessarily perfect and necessarily guaranteeing that no failures in the delivery of justice are happening in our country.

On another subject, I'm really tired of the insults and name calling that keep appearing in these streams. Many people are angry about the results of this election, and others are angry about what their political adversaries are saying about the results of this election.

Seems like it should be possible to compare perspectives and opinions without resorting to incivilities.

"What makes anyone think that American law is more immune from error than German law during the 1930s? Than the law in the USSR during Stalin's purges? "

One of the top ten most ignorant posts ever and certainly more proof of the Hate America liberal indoctrination occurring in our public school systems.

It's called the US Constitution and it guarantees rights and a judicial process that insures those rights.

Dallas has frozen Police and Fire pensions because they have over promised and over spent. Dangerous combination, but it is exactly what Tucson is doing.

"...he is probably best known for his 1994 Pulitzer Prize-winning play, Glengarry Glen Ross, which he adapted for film in 1992. "

Unless time has ceased to be linear, I'm going to assume you meant "his 1984 Pulitzer Prize-winning play."

Re: “Guitar Hero

I go way back with Robby and graduated with him at Sahuaro, he was awesome then as he is now. Everyone of us knew how great he was back then and always enjoyed watching him jam and hanging out with him. The desert parties at 17 poles and at rockafellas was the best. Great job Robby, Tucson is proud of you and so am I

Re: “Phoenix Union High School District Makes a Statement

"Then Herod sent and killed all the male children in Bethlehem and in all that region who were two years old or under." Matthew 2:16

Legal, according to the law of the day.

There is legal, and then there is ethical. There is legal, and then there is humane.

How many cases throughout history have there been where the law has been out of alignment with what is just? It would be impossible to list them all.

What makes anyone think that American law is more immune from error than German law during the 1930s? Than the law in the USSR during Stalin's purges? Every society has to balance respect for the law with trying to discern cases where what is legal in a particular time and place may not be what is right. That's what individual conscience, for those who believe that such a thing exists, is meant to do.

For years after the Rhode Island fire that killed 100 people, Jack Russell was, by all accounts (even his own), trying to kill himself with drink. That's what "suicidal nostalgia act" means

To the writer of this article: What exactly is a "Suicidal Nostalgia Act?"....What does it even mean? I find it a bit offensive mysel.
