If you vote no, then nothing changes. If you vote yes, at least there is a chance for a change

Re: “Not Your Mama's Safety Pin: How a Household Item Can Change a Life

FWIW, I'm guessing the people who are harassing this family don't have a "We Stand With Rosa" sign in their yards, either. Tucson is all kinds of people; some of them are haters. But the safety pin doesn't seem to me to be about them. I'd wear it to let refugees know I'm happy to accompany them when they're feeling vulnerable. Already, when I'm out and about, I make a point to smile and exchange pleasantries with anyone wearing a hijab. Doesn't hurt a thing, and nobody seems to think it's condescending and obnoxious. We just have to try to work our way respectfully through absorbing yet another influx of people and cultures. Some will do this more successfully than others. Thankfully, at this point, we in the U.S. have quite a bit of experience with integration and its exigencies. I would only add that there always will be people who are unable, for whatever reason, to behave appropriately. They don't have the skills. More worrisome are those who otherwise know to behave appropriately, but lack compassion and/or critical thinking skills.

Re: “Diane Douglas on Testing and the Classrooms First Initiative Council

We will always need publicly funded schools, and both compassion and justice demand that they be places where children can get the kind of education every one of our citizens needs and deserves.

There is no institution -- not the non-profits and for-profits that run charters, not the church communities, religious orders, and wealth cohorts that run privates -- that is not affected by its own internal politics, and no institution is so trustworthy that parents can have no reason to keep an eye on what's going on there with "the courses" or "the admin."

We need to roll up our sleeves and do the work necessary as citizens to defend the institutions this democracy needs to function. In a country where the majority rules, if you give up the fight to ensure that the education delivered in the school system still utilized by more than 80% of our population is sound, you do so at your own peril.

Re: “Local Media Pros Som and Krystin Lisaius Indicted on Drug-Related Child Abuse Charges

This has become the story of America, where "instant gratification" and recklessness regarding ones health and the health of their own family is rampant. It's our skools and the liberalism that have taken it too far. Two people, not a bad looking couple and family, had it all-- great looks, great careers, nice home, nice BMW, high profile lifestyle, etc. and pissed it all away. Becoming all too common because of lack of education and instilling moral values.

We could all agree that user tax would satisfy the government enough to legalize it. Why don't we offer up 25% of our pay as a user fee?

Oh wait, we don't work do we? What's plan #2? I'm out of papers.

Re: “Diane Douglas on Testing and the Classrooms First Initiative Council

This back and forth proves exactly why public schools are doomed. There is a major tug of war going on for control (and it must be the money) of the schools. Parents are fools to stay and continue to under serve their children. Enroll them where you don't have to fear the courses or the admin.

Students have been and will continue to be the losers in this flawed system.

Re: “Marijuana Legalization Group Submits Initiative to Secretary of State's Office with More Than 250K Signatures

In N.Y. I got busted with a joint in 1969. I was charged with one count of violating section 220-05 of the N.Y. State penal code. possession of a dangerous drug. I was looking at 8 years for a freaking joint. The cop was a total dick. He hosed the whole case on the stand and I walked on illegal search and seizure. I'm not as up on the law as some of you guys. However, if my yes vote can keep one poor bastard from going through what I did I'm all in for yes.

nice biased town. They didn't even have their mug shot. They has their headshots from the news. There will be no equal justice in this town. They will get a slap on the wrist.

Re: “Diane Douglas on Testing and the Classrooms First Initiative Council

When you're listing the failures-to-be-authentically-on-the-left of the so-called "progressives" running TUSD, don't forget "agree with Graham-Keegan that teacher credentialing requirements should be reduced" and "aggressively promote the passage of 123."

Marijuana Legalization Nationwide is an inevitable reality that's approaching much sooner than prohibitionists think and there is nothing they can do to stop it!

Re: “Marijuana Legalization Group Submits Initiative to Secretary of State's Office with More Than 250K Signatures

It's time for us, the majority of The People to take back control of our national marijuana policy. By voting OUT of office any and all politicians who very publicly and vocally admit to having an anti-marijuana, prohibitionist agenda! Time to vote'em all OUT of office. Period. Plain and simple.

Politicians who continue to demonize Marijuana, Corrupt Law Enforcement Officials who prefer to ruin peoples lives over Marijuana possession rather than solve real crimes who fund their departments toys and salaries with monies acquired through Marijuana home raids, seizures and forfeitures, and so-called "Addiction Specialists" who make their income off of the judicial misfortunes of our citizens who choose marijuana, - Your actions go against The Will of The People and Your Days In Office Are Numbered! Find new careers before you don't have one.

The People have spoken! Get on-board with Marijuana Legalization Nationwide, or be left behind and find new careers. Your choice.

Legalize Nationwide!

Re: “Marijuana Legalization Group Submits Initiative to Secretary of State's Office with More Than 250K Signatures

Marijuana consumers deserve and demand equal rights and protections under our laws that are currently afforded to the drinkers of far more dangerous and deadly, yet perfectly legal, widely accepted, endlessly advertised and glorified as an All American pastime, booze.

Plain and simple!

Legalize Marijuana Nationwide!
