Re: “Bringing Pride to Arizona, That Fabulous Tom Horne

As long as the AZ Democratic party is committed to open borders, we will continue to have idiots like Tom Horne elected.

Hurri:
I stand corrected! No way he should even run! I used the wrong word, sorry. He is an insult to all public servants and to all taxpayers.

Re: “Baltimore Bikes

I feel that the documentary was very good. I feel it should the real. Coco doesn't look like she knows any other way. Its clear to me that she needs some help. My heart goes out to her because I can tell she loves her her kids. She just wants the best for them.However she needs someone to show her different.

Re: “Bringing Pride to Arizona, That Fabulous Tom Horne

I remember in the 60s that the Pope declared the purpose of marriage was to bear children. At the time, I considered that strange since then by that definition no one could marry who was not planning on procreation. Did that mean that elderly people and infertile women and men should not marry? As a student of history, I recall that marriage has historically throughout time been about property, the acquisition thereof of power. Children cemented that power through inheritance rights. No love and romance involved at all. Horne is as usual seriously off base. I also consider that marriage is a civil institution which again is about business and property, but that religious marriage seeks to imbue that contractual arrangement with emotion and religious vows. I like that choice for those who want it. Remember Princess Grace had a civil marriage in Monaco and then had the great cathedral ceremony for religious purpose.

Re: “Sock-puppet-gate: Where Did Huppenthal Post, And What Names Did He Use?

I remember many years ago in a Taft Institute for Two Party Government being told by Conrad Joyner that there was no possible way that Evan Mecham would be governor of AZ and that Burton Barr would win as he was the most powerful man in AZ. Then the Barr folks were so confident they didn't bother to vote in the primary. Guess what happened next? Lesson learned.

Re: “Bringing Pride to Arizona, That Fabulous Tom Horne

Tom Horne is a total embarrassment to the state. He and his compadre John Huppenthal rode to power on the destruction of a perfectly good and functioning program of studies in TUSD by marshaling the far right wing's racism. Now he is apparently working on homophobia as a wedge issue. As has been mentioned in these comments, his despicable net also captures those who don't want or can't have children, those who adopt, etc. etc. etc. I would like to know how much money that could be spent on other things has been spent on ridiculous legal briefs like the one mentioned above.

Re: “Sock-puppet-gate: Where Did Huppenthal Post, And What Names Did He Use?

I agree with this column: We have a right to know what this public figure, in charge of Arizona's public schools, has written.

Sadly, the typical stressed out, over worked and underpaid Arizonan has no clue who John Huppenthal is, let alone what he has written. And even sadder is the likelihood that the same newspapers that endorsed Huppenthal in the past, like the Arizona Republic, will endorse him again.

Those who know and care must continue to write about Huppenthal, educate the public and encourage voters to elect a decent chief of public education who cares about the education of all of Arizona's children: David Garcia.

Thank you David Safier for caring!

Re: “Sock-puppet-gate: Where Did Huppenthal Post, And What Names Did He Use?

Very timely article. I too have read some comments that I wonder about. And I join Pima Mujer on wondering why no one has gone after his use of state computers. The "accountability" movement is certainly active about oversight of teachers and school personnel, but doesn't give a...whit....about its own administrators. Sort of parallel to its enforcement of accountability for state funds in public schools (extreme red alert) and for charters, vouchers or home schooling (relaxed to non-existent).

Re: “Sock-puppet-gate: Where Did Huppenthal Post, And What Names Did He Use?

No way he's going to win?? We Dems can't believe it is possible, but his comments may find a happy home among GOPers who agree with even some of his most disgusting tomes. Nothing surprises me any more. Look at the millions Sheriff Joe has cost Maricopa county taxpayers and they just keep on loving it.

Re: “Adam Kwasman Makes The New Yorker!

Adam Kwasman is another idiot, just like Tom Horne. We have more than our fair share here in Arizona. That seems to be our political legacy lately.

What does this mean for couples who adopt--will this now become illegal based upon Horne's crazy argument?

Why was there no investigation of his use of state computers to share his views? Oh, yeah, I forgot. IOKIYAR.

Re: “Article About RAW: Natural Born Artists Might Confirm What You Thought About the Organization

They have broken artist's hearts as many as they have "supported". I know so many artists who lost out on a lot of money and dealt with a lot more pain for the shows and popularity contest "awards" shows. It's quite saddening. The organization could have been something spectacular. Raw does not support artists - it supports the owners ego and . . . drinking apparently. TRUTH.
