Re: “A Dollar a Day, and Other Observations About Ducey's Education Funding Proposal

Conservatives want the taxpayers to pay for three school systems. The real public schools, the unregulated charter school profit industry, and unregulated private religious schools. They are perfectly happy to "throw money at the problem" as long as they benefit directly, like your Senate President. Put it to a Statewide vote in plain language, like they are constantly whining about for public school bonds and overrides, Do you approve of your taxpayer money going to unregulated, for profit charter schools, and unregulated private religious schools, Yes or No. Betsy DeVos tried it in Michigan and hoped her bank roll could convince the voters in that State. They voted overwhelmingly against it.

Looks like the itty bitty snowflake AZ/DC is one again pretending to be someone else, "Proud to be an American".

Don't be afraid cupcake AC/DC - use the vagisil and everything will be just fine.

Re: “Dear Mr. President

Today is Orange Day!

It will go down in history as one of the worst days of all time.

Watch and learn people. You get what you vote for...pardon me, what I meant to say was...you get what the electoral college votes for.

Orange Day will live in infamy!

Re: “Dear Mr. President

I want to appreciate Dr Agbaka for using his herbal medicine to cure my family from herpes virus, since 3 years, my family have been having this herpes disease and it has been giving my family challenges,we were so perplexed cause my family have taken several drugs to be cured but every of our effort was in vain,one morning i was browsing through the internet then i saw several testimonies about Dr Agbaka curing people of their herpes disease and immediately i contacted Dr Agbaka on his email: {agbakaherbalhome@gmail.com}, told him about my family troubles and he told me that my family must be cured, so he prepared a herbal medicine for my family which we used for 2 weeks and everything was like a dream for my family, right now, my family herpes disease was totally gone,why don't you contact him today and be free from your disease... His email is, AGBAKAHERBALHOME@GMAIL.COM or call him on Mobile +2348143502763

Re: “Southern Arizona Sanctuary Movement Makes a Statement

Don't expect David Safier to get the details right when he's reporting about his political adversaries. His technique is more scattershot: blast them with whatever you've got, real, distorted, and / or invented. Cf. his attacks on the IEC TKF before the TUSD Board election.

Does he care who and what gets hurt in the process? The truth, people with whom he disagrees politically, or local parents donating and volunteering generously to try to improve our schools?

Not a bit.

The most laughable portions of his blog are those where he tries to work up righteous indignation about "fake news" and distortions of THE TRUTH by his political adversaries. As if he's not guilty of same, and regularly.

Yo paster. What fake news site did you get those fake numbers from? The Onion? Newsmax? Wow, they're not even close enough to call passable BS. So sad.

Re: “Trump's Election Has Been Very Good For K12 Inc.

"You may have heard of Democrats for Education Reform. Like the AFC, it's a vocal charter supporter, though a somewhat quieter voucher supporter." Not sure where you're getting your information from because DFER has never supported vouchers, only charter schools. However, given the fact that you misidentified AFC as AFT throughout the article, perhaps it's not surprising you don't have your facts straight.

Re: “Trump's Election Has Been Very Good For K12 Inc.

Liberal plantation?

Sometimes I come back and read my commentary and realize just how much of an ignoramus I truly am.

At least I'm still more of a know it all than the average pinko commie Tucson "progressive" liberal.

Pardon me, my incontinence has struck again. Time for me to get myself unsoiled.

Re: “The New Old School

Mama Louisa's has a great menu and food quality is awesome. Their free speech should not be hindered because of one person's bias. Live and let live. I thought we had gotten pasta this. It is bolognese.

Support the local restaurants! They are your neighbors.
