Re: “Science on Screen: "The Unbelievers" at The Loft Tonight

Presumably the majority of us will agree about the importance of science and reason in the modern world. But how does reason and science support their metaphysical beliefs?

Maybe these two guy's should put their two heads together and create another world. Now that would be impressive. Til then, my knee will bend to the only one who was capable of doing so.

Re: “Listen to Your Heart

I'm proud to say I've been a loyal reader of Tucson Weekly for quite sometime now.I picked up my first weekly @El pueblo neighborhood center library when it was still a closet with close to 500 books stuffed into rickety bookshelves very well taken care of by the staff of one. The size of that library in juxtaposition to it's location (6th ave. and Irvington) was truly a testament to how unimportant it was to bring new reading material to the low class working poor.

But, I digress.

I would like to say, given the fact that I've been such a long time reader, that I , religiously read my favored weekly publication front to back. this isn't the case however, I do have a few columns that I must read every week including: Danehy, all of the events pages, Police dispatch, news of the weird, savage love, red meat, Mine and whomever is unlucky enough to be around's horoscope, ask a Mexican (unfortunately) and most recently the editors note.

The last editor was interesting enough but now I'm happy to see a female taking over position as editor. I've only read a few of her columns and from what I can tell she can get angry at times but I do believe that
she ,like myself, is very caring and lovingly invested in Tucson. Her hoorah for the 520 does not seem obligatory in the least. un-fortunately, This last confused me I even read it several times to make sure that lack of sleep and too much coffee wasn't playing the part in my confusion

This is just terrible editing and writing! I'm very disappointed and you know what Mari? I suggest you step it up. Because, this is very badly written. Which is a shame because you seem to love Tucson and are very passionate about your work. I suggest you step it up!

And it should be administered to all incoming elected officials. It would have saved the state millions of dollars in court costs if the Lege understood the Constitution, separation of church and state, balance of power and stuff like that.

Re: “Pima Spokesman Leaving for Job with McSally Team

I expect McSally will need all the help she can hire to continue to show a moderate face at home while she hangs out with the other Koch Bros new hires. She will have a chance to show whether she goes for the dark money or surprise us all by having moral principles that don't involve abortions. So far, I have seen no sign of independent thought.

Small Mexican town of Tenancingo is major source of sex trafficking pipeline to New York

The town of 10,000, about 80 miles from Mexico City, is Mexico’s undisputed cradle of sex trafficking, one end of a pipeline that leads directly to our city’s streets.

Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s New York field office arrested 32 sex traffickers last year; 26 of them were from Tenancingo.

Re: “UPDATE: TUSD Students, Legal Team Kick Ass in 9th Circuit Hearing Challenging Law Banning Mexican American Studies

Oh, and I forgot to mention that the "Violent Crimes Institute" you cited with such authority is a one-person business run by Deborah Schurman-Kauflin, who is a psychic medium. That means she talks to....DEAD PEOPLE!!!! Just the kind of person we should all listen to and consider to be a real authority on violent crime. Maybe you can lobby for her to get a gig on Faux News talking about "no-go" zones and Muslim cities in the UK along with communicating with the dead. She'd fit right in.

Re: “UPDATE: TUSD Students, Legal Team Kick Ass in 9th Circuit Hearing Challenging Law Banning Mexican American Studies

That study, cobarde who lacks the juevos to use a real name, is flawed. The reason that so-called "study" is not mentioned in the media, is that it is not valid. It is an extrapolation based on guess and conjecture. It is NOT accepted as legitimate by anyone other than right-wingnuts such as...well, YOU. Believe what you want to believe. I worked quite a few years in the criminal justice system here in southern AZ and your crazy assertions about Mexicans and their culture and Mexicans being more likely to be sexual predators are nativist garbage. There is no legitimate study. The study you cite is as crazy as the assertion made recently on Faux News and swallowed hook line and sinker by locos such as yourself, that Birmingham, UK is a Muslim city and non-Muslims are afraid to go there. You will believe what you want to believe, supported by pseudo-studies that someone pulls out of her ass. Your fantasies are fueled by crazy assertions that others make and that fit your own rather strange beliefs. Are you john Huppenthal, up to your old tricks, using "swaydonyms" again? It wouldn't surprise me.

Re: “The State: Student Achievement, Self Esteem Are Irrelevant

Ratso: "They have been taken over"? Yeah, like your bullshit Faux News commentator said about Birmingham in the UK. You sure do love to chug-a-lug the grape kool-aid, don't you? And Whatever: Again, you have no evidence to substantiate any of your wild, paranoid claims - put up or shut up. And how come you sissies don't have the cojones to use your real names? You must not want your families and co-workers to know how bat-shit crazy your beliefs are. And "Grijalvas" doesn't have an apostrophe, you ignorant wretch. You should have spent more time in public school - you might have learned the basic rules for writing in English.

Re: “Best Backpacking Trail

Actually overnight camping is only restricted in what qualifies as the actual recreation area. I just spoke to a park ranger there recently because of a trip we're planning and she said as long as you reach the area where it qualifies as national forest (Like Hutch's Pool) it's ok to overnight there if you're backpacking.

Re: “UPDATE: TUSD Students, Legal Team Kick Ass in 9th Circuit Hearing Challenging Law Banning Mexican American Studies

Mike Anderson - then you'll love this. You can always Google, it's much better to be informed.

There are approximately 240,000 illegal immigrant sex offenders in the United States. This staggering statistic, rarely mentioned by the media, was revealed in a study by Deborah Schurman-Kauflin of the Violent Crimes Institute in Atlanta, Georgia. "It is clear," she says, "that the U.S. public faces a dangerous threat from sex predators who cross the U.S. borders illegally."

Re: “The State: Student Achievement, Self Esteem Are Irrelevant

The very first paragraph makes assumptions that have no basis in reality.

And that's because the supposed results referenced in the second paragraph are nothing more than political agendas , assumptions, and hyperbole.

No wonder TUSD can not move forward.

They have been taken over. Much like parts of Paris.

Re: “A New Bill Would Create a "Citizen Test" Graduation Requirement

Suppose this same testing requirement was there to get a driver's license? I'm not talking about safer streets but the likely differences in motivation.
C'mon, Dave. Try thinking positive. It sounds to me like you don't think AZ students aren't up to the task. Maybe you should add "positive thinking" to your New Year's resolutions.
I have also taken the on line version of the citizen's test and am thankful that after all these years since graduation I am eligible to retain my citizenship.
Don't be intimidated.
