Re: “Review: Hillary’s America: the Secret History of the Democratic Party

Calling D'souza an historian is like calling Homer Simpson a gourmet restaurant critic. Just one tiny error of hundreds, THERE WERE NO REPUBLICANS EXISTING DURING ANDREW JACKSON's term of office.

Dick Morris was on the Clinton payroll for years. But she doesn't have problems with bad decisions does she?

Re: “Review: Hillary’s America: the Secret History of the Democratic Party

Dinesh D'Souza is a right wing propagandist that subscribed to the desperate attempts at smearing Obama and made a documentary to push that :

1. He is born in Kenya

2. He is a muslim

Re: “TUSD Enrollment, 2000 to 2016

I removed my kids from TUSD 9 years ago as soon as Tanque Verde started open enrollment. After enduring 3 years of school closure threats I had had enough. I love the small classes and wonderful teachers and the kids all know each other. They are getting a first rate personal education. Nothing would make me return to TUSD.

Re: “Editor's Note

"The fact that Bernie made as good a showing as he did, and was willing to take the high road when the revelations came out, means the Democratic Party has to take his influence seriously." TDB

Really? The Democratic Party, and pointedly the DNC, have proven they are the black hole of the political universe. They will suck up all energy and continue on as nothing has really happened. Working against a party candidate? No problem? Thinly veiled anti-semitic/anti-atheist plots to derail the candidate? No problem.

Watching Sanders kowtow to the party, a party he had never been a member of til this election, was disgusting. He should have walked out with his supporters. These people who trusted him and worked their butts off in his campaign have every right to be turned off to politics ... and to sit this one out or vote their consciences.

Re: “Editor's Note

I'm with you on this one, MH. My first election-& the last time I voted third party-was the 1980 Presidential. Of course, even if all third-party votes had gone to Carter, that bad actor who wound up in the White House for eight years would still have done so. All the same, I learned all about wasting my vote then (never mind how much better Carter looks in hindsight). & Who else remembers the Nader fiasco?

The fact that Bernie made as good a showing as he did, and was willing to take the high road when the revelations came out, means the Democratic Party has to take his influence seriously. Meanwhile, any vote not for Hillary will just get p!$$ed away, and make it that much more likely we'll get a textbook fascist for president (hopefully, checks-&-balances would keep him from some of the more egregious parts of his agenda, but not without a lot of damage & wasted energy).

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

There's a bigger story not being told for whatever reasons: The online Arizona Daily Independent, with a FOIA request, obtained a bunch of county emails that show County Administrator Chuck Huckelberry, Deputy John Bernal, planner (Dr.) John Moffatt, PCDOT Director Priscilla Cornelio, former State Transportation Board Chair Steve Christy, and others working closely with non-government private groups and individuals -- Tucson-Metro Chamber of Commerce, Sun Corridor Inc., Imagine Greater Tucson and Southern Arizona Leadership Conference, lawyer Si Schorr, lobbyist Michael Racy, and more -- to shape county policy contrary to express Board of Supervisors' policies.

Re: “Desert Angel

I wish that he will put out garbage cans as well. The trash left on the beautiful deserts is all over many counties. I am a raging Liberal, but I am not for illegal immigration. I still would rather have someone seeking a future then those that buy their way in to our country, like the Chinese and Green Valley Hospital.
The benefit to those that the polititions pander to exists, or better immigration policy would have been passed decades ago. Hence the first vote by the right to allow green cards for below minimum wage. Our jobs have been lost by those same politicians. Our tax dollars and jobs are overseas, hidden in our massive corporate pirate companies. Low wages are also an effect of massive manipulation of law, passed by those we vote for.
Greed is the topic here, and the dollars are floating up. Screaming about border crossers is foolish and shows a lack of understanding that our, "Representatives", do not work for America anymore. Corporations like Amazon and Walmart now allow pirated products to grace their shelves. I recently bought gloves the said, "Designed in America, Made in China. Disgusting!!! This is where our borders need the protection. How could we survive on artificially low wages without the laws passed that allow cheap Chinese products into our country, child credit tax breaks and welfare. Our very Representatives are not Patriots!

It's very socialist. They're required to help you. Without ANY kind of socialism, you would be completely on your own.

I'm glad you've lived...and (hopefully) learned.

Re: “Editor's Note

I don't begrudge your choice, Mari--each to her own voting strategy, in this grand democratic experiment, and so on--but please don't fool yourself. If Billary Clinton fails to win this election, it will have nothing whatsoever to do with Bernie Sanders or anyone voting Green. She will fail on her own merits, or lack thereof.

If she fails to defeat one of the most ignorant, absurd, untruthful, embarrassing, unqualified, and downright dangerous presidential candidates in history--unbelievable as it may seem, but it could very well happen--it would be because she has utterly squandered her credibility. For many years she has been nothing more than a garden-variety politician who happens to be married to a former president, tacking back and forth with the winds of change and changing her tune whenever it suited the moment. She has consistently and earnestly played to Republican themes while pretending to be a liberal, courted the wealthy and powerful while pretending to stand for the underprivileged, and betrayed her base and the principles of her supposedly liberal party in the process. That strategy was birthed by her husband and his DNC, to the ruin of the Democratic Party and progressive change, and she has embraced it enthusiastically.

People are totally fed up with it--so fed up that they're desperately grasping for a psychotic ignoramus just because he sounds different. If she cannot beat the psychotic ignoramus--and I mean soundly beat him, send him back to his Tower with his tiny tail between his legs--she does not deserve to be president. No amount of ill-conceived, third-party blaming can change that.
