Re: “Bill (and Hillary) Clinton's For-Profit College Problem

"...his very profitable flirtation with the for-profit education sector, especially at a time when its questionable practices were being exposed in the U.S., doesn't speak well for his character."

You think?

Re: “Bill (and Hillary) Clinton's For-Profit College Problem

They have destroyed the party of the people. 6 months ago I thought the Republics party was all washed up. Tonight I realize that it's actually the Democratic party that is washed up, along with the lying mainstream media.

What a sad day in America. Hillary has put trumped Nixon in Watergate by cheating within her own party.

Re: “Take 10 Minutes to Enjoy Jon Stewart's Visit to the Late Show

Whaat? Nothing from the trolls? It must be hard to defend Lumpy, or Ailes for that matter. Or about anything that is heard on their feaux news show. But we can still trust Jon to call them out for their distortions. And I expect him to go after the Dems with the same fervor.

Re: “Bill (and Hillary) Clinton's For-Profit College Problem

Interesting. I suppose on the day that Bernie Sanders is making a speech at the Democratic National Convention telling us to vote for Hillary Clinton, it's safe to admit the Laureate connection "doesn't....bolster [your] confidence in Ms. Clinton."

Interesting, too, that just before the convention started we finally got the back story behind the obvious undermining the party machine had been doing of the Sanders campaign. Now Wasserman-Schultz will resign -- now that the primary campaign is over and she achieved, through the medium of the DNC, what everyone in that Democratic but un-democratic cabal wanted her to achieve.

So are you voting for Jill Stein, David? Had enough of your party's hypocrisies, local and national? I didn't get that impression listening to you spin for Sanchez on the Buckmaster show last week. So don't try to give us the impression that you have something resembling a conscience helping you make decisions about what to think and what to write....now that saying something negative about Clinton won't make a damn bit of difference in whether or not she gets the nomination, or whether or not people feel forced to vote for a Wall-Street bought and purchased candidate to prevent Trump from getting into the Oval Office.

What great things the Democratic party is doing for us, right? I've seen few things sadder in recent decades than watching them project the Sanders "They've all come to look for America" campaign ad before he spoke at the convention -- then watching the media cut to Bill Clinton's face after Sanders told us to vote for Hillary.

Re: “American Babylon: Talking with Libertarian Presidential Candidate Gary Johnson on the Street

That is ridiculous. Hillary has earned this win because of all of her public service the last 50 years. We shouldn't even have to count the votes. The republicans made up all those e-mail lies to try to harm her.

Re: “Martha McSally Is Not Endorsing Donald Trump, So You Can Stop Asking About It

The last 24 hours have proven it's more dangerous to be linked to HRC and the Democratic party. Can't anybody teach them how to secure their lying, cheating system rigging emails?

Re: “Good Bloat Days: Bloat Records

A most wonderful time to have been in Tucson. The Talent and Creativity seemed to have exploded raining down and enriching the parched palette of the Pueblo Viejo. Reading the quote from Becky "Bebe" sparked a memory of her contagious soul filled laugh unlike no other. The contributions of Bloat and it's Artists may be unknown to many but for those who were graced with the enjoyment of their Art realize they received a special gift.....

Re: “Another Look at TUSD Salary Hikes and Prop 123

Everyone who wants to know about a TRULY important and telling story in TUSD needs to click on this link:

http://www.kgun9.com/news/tpd-officer-feared-for-his-life-at-tusd-hs

Please note that one part of the story refers to a letter sent to HT Sanchez by Tucson's chief of police. In any other town, this sort of correspondence between the superintendent of the city's largest school district and its key law enforcement official would be front page news. The Weekly has ignored it so far, as has the Star. Why?

Virtually every story in this blog about TUSD reads like it could have been ghosted by their PR flacks. Here's a real story for Safier and anyone else at The Weekly to get into and surface some more facts. It has implications for the operation of TUSD, the upcoming Board election and, most crucial of all, the safety of students and staff in every school, not just the school featured in the story.

When will the journalists at The Weekly and the other media outlets in this town start to do some real work and report on stories that TRULY matter?

Re: “Zona Politics: Meet the Democrats Running for State House in District 9

Arizona has one of the highest prison rates because we are one of the most uneducated states. Too many kids are not graduating from high school, or not learning a trade after school. Who's responsible? The state, or the parents?

Mr. Barnes had no idea what he started when he sat us next to each other in that Lineweaver Elementary class. Unfortunately too many of those comics were Richie Rich/Casper.

Re: “The Skinny

Can't agree with the Trump-Twitter-type comments. However, at his age, I'd like McCain to consider retiring gracefully instead of getting pushed out by members of this current carefree and crude Trump inspired "base" of McCain's party. Bacteria have more class.

Re: “Eyes on the Streets

I appreciate your story Patti(I'm assuming this "comment" is for you rather than the organizers -tho I can appreciate their work too). I have been briefly homeless I've had friends in homelessness, I've worked in a supportive housing program for formerly homeless families. So i'm familiar with the aspect of being homeless that renders you, me, anyone who's homeless - our humanity especially- invisible while simultaneously exposing us to the harsh & constant visibility of judgement & all too often the disdain and blame that accompany this dehumanizing impact of poverty in America. I wish you the best of luck in your desire and ambition to participate in revealing the real that lives in the reality of being poor & homeless in our country. I will be thinking about potential collaborations we can do across state boundaries (I'm in San Francisco).
