Re: “Giffords and Kelly: Congrats McSally, Now Get Working on Gun/Stalker Legislation

Martha, we have enough anti-gun laws already. The gun isn't a bad thing. The bad people are the bad thing. The more good guys carrying guns every day, the safer everyone is. Please remember this when the gun-grabbers want to spread their loony ideas. Also remember, our right to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. More guns everywhere means a safer place. We need to keep the right to self-protection and in a world that is more dangerous every day, (see Muslim extremism for example), don't add to the insanity of disarming the public and turning us all into victims. It's against the Constitution, anyway.

Sorry Mark. You might wait to push your "defenseless" idea until after the threatened riots.

Police across the country are under assault. They are our first line of defense.
So...if they are, we are.

Why not give it a go in Australia?

Re: “Update: McSally Wins Recount, Barber gives statement

One of the last votes, if not the last vote, Barber cast was in favor of the budget deal (Cromnibus). In doing so, when he had a chance to stand as a true progressive, he voted yes on a bill that benefited the same Wall Street slime who nearly bankrupted the nation, further damaged the EPA, gave Navajo land to yet another foreign mining corporation and sold elected officials to the highest bidders. Even Jeff Flake voted against this legislative nightmare.

Nice work Ron.

The new Congress and its members will be sworn in on January 6, 2015.

But you are correct. Right now we have NO representation in Washington.

Don't lead him on. False hopes can be devastating.

Just take a look at Hillary.

Well, Davey, your resume might have been considered if your cover letter didn't start out; "Dear Dumb Doug" ;-}

Re: “Who Just Said "The Market Mechanism Just Doesn't Work" In Education?

Well, David a topic on which you and I remain in lock step in opposition. I'll say it here again that charter schools have become a place where it's more about the money than the education; I have seen too many kids come out of the program less prepared than their counterparts in traditional schools. But, the way for traditional schools to eliminate this shanker is a better prophylaxis, and I don't mean just more money.
Yeah, you might be subject to criticism for the opening paragraph but that is because this is your normal routine, negativism. It's raining outside right now but on the positive side I happen to know it will be a nicer day later on.

Re: “Reforma Cocina y Cantina Brings Upscale Central Mexican Fare and 229 Agave Spirits to St. Philip’s Plaza

@aznemesis, I haven't tried it yet, but there is plenty of horrible Mexican food made by guys named things like Juan and Jose on the southside...the proof of the pudding is in the eating.

TUCSON, AZ (KOLD) - Tucson Unified School District has ended its financial support of an adult-education program connected with "Promotoras del Barrio," due to improper use of funding, according to TUSD officials.

Tell us again how the money is for the children.

It's a great story.

AZ gave TUSD millions more, two days ago. They expanded administrative staff again.

I'll be happy when there is no more TUSD administration, no more Grijalvas polluting and corrupting not just the schools and the teachers, but probably the children too! So yeah.. if privatization cleans that up, So Be It.
