Re: “Zona Politics: Matt Heinz, Victoria Steele and Steve Christy Talk About Their 2016 Campaigns

Sorry!

Most Hispanic people do NOT support Chump. Your restaurant experience was not the norm.

I work with, I am friends with and I have family members (through marriage) who are Hispanic people. They are mostly Mexican-Americans, though some have heritage from other countries; some are true Mexican citizens who are living in the USA, working in the USA and possessing dual citizenship. I don't know ONE who doesn't think that Trump the Chump is a complete jackass.

Trump will be beaten.

What's unfortunate is that he will be beaten by Hillary, not a more deserving candidate.

Re: “Editor's Note

Mari Herreras , what is wrong with you ? If those entrusted to enforce our law fail to do their job and are reckless in their judgement, then they will be held accountable. However, a jury of their peers will be the ones to pass judgement upon them and find them either guilty or not guilty, and not a reporter or vigilantly mob, who have become both judge and jury and are ready to lynch them without having the luxury of due process.

Many African Americans in America, were lynched without a trial, they were found guilty solely on the basis of the color of their skin and murdered. However, isn't the' Black Lives Matter' organization demanding officers also be found guilty without a trial, just because of the color of their uniform ?

Before you write a negative opinion on such a sensitive subject, you must first take into consideration what is at stake. 99.9 percent of our officers are honorable. By the way, have thee officers, who shot the two black men, have they had their day in court ? Have they been given the opportunity to give their testimony before a jury ? Well have they ? No they have not ! But you assume that race played a part in the shooting. Mari, let me give you a piece advise, do some investigating reporting " Take a vacation to the city of Chicago and ask to be taken on a drive along in the hood. I guarantee you that you will have a change of heart about the brave men and women in blue, who risk their lives to make sure journalist and members of the black lives matter can sleep comfortably during their watch.

Re: “The Democratic Party's Progressive Education Platform

"Hillary Clinton's disclosure also shows that her husband made an undisclosed amount of money last year (2015) in consulting roles for two international interests — the Dubai-based Varkey GEMS Foundation and Laureate Education Inc., a global for-profit education firm. Bill Clinton ended his relationship with Laureate last year after earning $16.5 million as the operation's honorary chancellor, according to previously released Clinton tax records. Bill Clinton also has made more than $5.6 million in an honorary role for the GEMS foundation."

$22,000,000 for doing squat. Oh, but the Democratic Party platform is so progressive and anti-for profit schools.

Re: “Cannabis and cancer

Am Sancho Pedro base in united state of America, my wife was suffering from Breast Cancer and the doctor told me that there was nothing that
he could do to save my beloved wife. Then a friend told me about the Harry Ferguson hemp oil that can cure cancer, i told him that my wife’s
breast cancer was in the last stage that i don’t think the hemp oil would cure it and he persuaded me to try it, for the love of my wife,
i decided to give it a try. I did some research and i found a doctor who helped me with the cannabis oil to cure my wife’s breast cancer and he assured me that
after 4 months the cancer would be no more, here is the email to contact: harryferguson@outlook.com or call + 14083370415
I bought it and she used it, it worked exactly as the doctor prescribed it. Thanks to doctor Harry Ferguson for taking away sorrow in my
life. can you all imagine, that my wife have a 6 years old daughter and a 3 years old son, what would i have done. God will bless Dr. Harry Ferguson for helping me with cannabis oil and for his support and
care, contact Email: harryferguson@outlook.com what can i say unto my LORD, all i have to say is THANK YOU LORD.

Re: “Zona Politics: Matt Heinz, Victoria Steele and Steve Christy Talk About Their 2016 Campaigns

Mr Heinz, I had dinner in a Mexican restaurant in San Diego, and they were all discussing why they as a large Hispanic family were supporting Trump for President. Race baiting by Dems no longer works as you will see when Hillary is beaten.

Re: “The Democratic Party's Progressive Education Platform

Rick Spanier, looks to me like you understand very well what we can expect from another Clinton administration. Too bad Sanders chose to endorse the financial industry's candidate rather than accepting Jill Stein's invitation to run on the Green Party ticket. A Sanders Green candidacy may have divided the "liberal" vote, but it would have been better than giving the "Democratic" party the impression that it can continue to shut out candidates who actually reflect the base's values and still succeed in getting the base to vote for establishment candidates that will not do what the country needs done.

For all his pretense of cynicism, Safier proves himself entirely willing, always, to swallow his own party's lines, locally and nationally, and he evidences astonishingly ill-advised optimism about party politicians' potential effectiveness in getting theory to translate into meaningful practice. When it comes to local politics, he propounds theories and endorses candidates and then pays absolutely no attention whatsoever to what they actually do in office. In national politics: see above.

I used to believe that Safier had a conscience that might, if provoked sufficiently, become active in what he wrote here and in whom he endorsed. These days, I've lost that belief. I've followed his commentary for three solid years and I've yet to see anything that would demonstrate that he's capable of anything other than soul-lesson promoting of business-as-usual party-line politics.

Re: “The Democratic Party's Progressive Education Platform

Here's a clue on platforms, Democrats' or Republicans': They are meaningless statements that say little in terms of actual legislation to be proposed and embraced by the winning party. Like "in my first 100 days, I will...." Platforms, like bonfires, take lots of short term energy to build, only to be set afire immediately after the election has been decided.

Hillary? Lots of dollars will flow to the "educational reformists" and her campaign benefactors while the wheels on the bus go round and round. Bill will be scheduled to speak to the same groups for hundreds of thousands per brain fart, while teachers plead for supplies. Get ready for creeping progressive incrementalism (and that's if Clinton actually beats Trump).

And that is by no stretch of the imagination a sure thing.

Re: “The Democratic Party's Progressive Education Platform

Let’s forget all the social engineering, political and religious agendas, and focus on the results — when a child, any child, graduates from high school, they should be able to fully read and write in English, all thought being able to read and write in any other language would be a bonus, they should be able to use critical thinking skills to see the world as it is and not just be a “good” consumer who buys lock, stock and barrel what the politicians, marketers, scientists and religions are trying to sell. They should be able to do math that allows them to balance a checkbook — unlike the federal, state and local governments — and know when financial institutions are setting them up for failure and a debt-ridden life. Finally, they should be taught how to lead a safe, secure and healthy life, free of those who would yoke them into lives destroyed by fast food, fast cars, easy money, fuzzy ethics, loose morals, drugs, alcohol, tobacco and sitting on the couch in front of the television or computer screen waiting for everything to be delivered to their door.

Re: “Two Tucson Women Hold Rally for Law Enforcement

These two women had the courage to stand up and have their voices heard. They were not intimidated by the bully of the block. They voiced their support for our men and women in blue. If only there would be more of us with the courage to say I've had enough, I'm done with the B.S. If we only had the courage to say, We will not tolerate this type of lawless behavior in our city, state, or in our country any longer. Our laws and those courageous men and women who enforce them have our full support. We will not back down, we will not allow a movement that condones the killing of our officers to intimidate us. If those entrusted fail to do their job and are reckless in their judgement, then they will be held accountable. However, a jury of their peers will be the ones to pass judgement upon them and find them and either guilty or not guilty, and not a vigilantly mob ready to lynch them without having the luxury of due process.

Many African Americans in America, were lynched without a trial, they were found guilty solely on the basis of the color of their skin and murdered. However, isn't the' Black Lives Matter' organization demanding officers also be charged without a trial, because of the color of their uniform ?

Re: “The Democratic Party's Progressive Education Platform

Both the Democratic and Republican Party platforms on education are weak, and do nothing to address the structural problems with our current public education system.

What is needed at this juncture is a separate system along side the existing system. A system with a completely different curriculum, a focus on personalized learning, project-based assessment and simulation, and connections to apprenticeship.

Our current system is too powerful and too tightly balanced in an equilibrium of forces - you cannot change one without the others rebelling against the change.

Also, the industrial era structure of standardization and mass-schooling no longer fits with a population that is wants to have more control of what, when, where, and how it learns. Everything about education and learning needs to change. The only way to do it is to start over with a new model that does not have the current system's constraints.

Re: “Free Kyle Catlin

Jammer; I understand I had might grow rights revoked too. Revoked by a rules established after the ballot issue passed.

ADZHDS/MMJ when given the voter mandate. Then came up with the 25 mile rule. To that there was no appeal except to the HMMM Administrative Judge. The only people that could appeal were the people that were in the industry. This is what they want with a
"Marijuana Department of License and Controls"
Nothing but the Industry marketers police and tax collectors. It is that entity that has the inside ear of Insurance and prosecution and revenue.

How ever to be honest you have stated several time that the Sheriff was called for a domestic issue. However we dont hear form the other party. It could be that those 12 plants caused a continual domestic problem so he eliminated the problem?

Re: “The Skinny

Oh, and Trump is going to curb the failure?

I'm not saying Hillary is a good choice, but to call her a liar and think that Trump isn't as much of one or worse just shows that you're fooling yourself. This country will miss the days of The Decider if Trump actually gets elected.

Re: “Two Tucson Women Hold Rally for Law Enforcement

Ratt:

Reporting on the men shouting the obscenities was a good call. It credits the women by showing that they have the ability to influence those who may not believe as they do. It shows that people can meet somewhere in the middle and cast aside some of their negativity. I give credit to these ladies for this action and the writer of this article for including their interaction with these men.
