Re: “Dear Daily Star: An Unsubstantiated Claim Is Not a Citation

Any day now Safier will post about Trump's pick for education secretary, and he will be SCANDALIZED about what a CHARTER MAVEN she is and how horrible the PRIVATIZATION agenda of the EVIL CORPORATE CLASS is, and what a CRIME it is that people like this malign and undermine the many shining public district examples of democracy, transparency, and excellence in TUSD. (Only he'll leave out the TUSD part, of course, as he always does except when he's making excuses for their failure to desegregate and their failure to deliver anything resembling a quality education to the vast majority of students attending this fantastic PUBLIC SCHOOL DISTRICT.)

Accurate and credible reporting? I don't think so.

Advocacy for improving education, including public district schools? Nope. Sleights of hand to distract the ignorant from observing what's really going on is more what's proffered here.

Re: “Dear Daily Star: An Unsubstantiated Claim Is Not a Citation

There are plenty of things that should be monitored that go unobserved and unreported while the liberal media continues to gorge itself on Trump's provocations and then regurgitates glob after glob of obvious and unnecessary (and unappetizing) commentary on these provocations for our consumption.

NEWS FLASH! : the provocations will not stop. They are, in case you haven't figured it out yet, part of the man's method. So do you stop covering local governance and state governance and (if you're an "education" blogger) what's actually going in real educational institutions (if, that is, you ever bothered to cover any of that in the first place -- a big IF in the case of David Safier)?

Not if your intention is to be "accurate" and "credible" ... and relevant. But we've known for some time now that that is not Safier's intent.

I wish the media would stop all this Trump bashing and find out what has happened to Kanye West.

Re: “Dear Daily Star: An Unsubstantiated Claim Is Not a Citation

HOUSTON, TX. November 27, 2016: True the Vote (TTV), the nations leading voters rights and election integrity organization, today released a statement with respect to President-Elect Donald Trumps claim that millions of individuals illegally voted in the 2016 Election.

True the Vote absolutely supports President-elect Trumps recent comment about the impact of illegal voting, as reflected in the national popular vote. We are still collecting data and will be for several months, but our intent is to publish a comprehensive study on the significant impact of illegal voting in all of its many forms and begin a national discussion on how voters, states, and the Trump Administration can best address this growing problem.

True the Vote (TTV) is an IRS-designated 501(c)(3) voters rights organization, founded to inspire and equip voters for involvement at every stage of our electoral process. TTV empowers organizations and individuals across the nation to actively protect the rights of legitimate voters, regardless of their political party affiliation. For more information, please visit

True the Vote has long been a lightning rod for criticism from the left, and was among the organizations targeted for abuse in the IRS scandal.

Re: “Dear Daily Star: An Unsubstantiated Claim Is Not a Citation

Trump's behavior is reflective of Mental Instability. He is a CROOK and Unfit to Serve in Public Office. These facts were recognized (prior to the Election), generally, by the Republican Leadership who did NOT support him. After the Election, they fell in line like sheep.

Let us hope that this Election was conducted fairly without Internal or External Vote Manipulations; the Former is an Act of Treason; the Latter an Act of War.

Thanks Shannon. I'm with Trump on this one because of the interview in this link:

By the way, where were the liberal elite media types when he said it?

Re: “Dear Daily Star: An Unsubstantiated Claim Is Not a Citation

It's nitpicking. You do it so well.

Ms Stein called for a recount citing no evidence of vote fraud. Why wasn't that the story? Then NBC says she couldn't have acted alone. In comes Hillary (the known liar) and now we see it is George Soros (Communist) that's funding and pushing this through.

Where is the media? Still licking their wounds from getting their tails kicked in the election. But, they still won't do their jobs in a non partisan way.

All of us have opinions. The media's job is to bring us facts. Not some of the facts or half of the facts but all of the facts.

Anything less, we don't need.

Re: “Dear Daily Star: An Unsubstantiated Claim Is Not a Citation

Safier states in this blog that he is a "loyal critic of the [Arizona Daily Star] who wants it to be as ACCURATE and CREDIBLE as possible."

Strange, that. In light of the quality of his own commentary, if he wants the Star to be "as accurate and credible as possible," it would be better for him to call himself a "hypocritical critic" of the Star.

HYPOCRITE: someone who claims to have moral standards or beliefs to which his own behavior does not conform

Wow Wrong, Again.

You're really fucking unhinged.

Get psychiatric treatment ASAP.

Although, from reading your BS, I'm pretty sure it's way too late for you.

You poor misguided snowflake.

Re: “The Skinny

Raytheon has a $1.6 billion profit the first 3/4 of 2016 -- so why do they need our taxpayer dollars?

Raytheon has also laid of hundreds of workers locally and in other states in recent years. Why is no one even asking if there will be a net gain or loss of jobs?

Jim Nintzel calls reportage in the online Arizona Daily Independent "general bullshit." You can compare the corporate " incentives" story in Monday's ADI (November 28) with this column and decide for yourself which better deserves that title.

Re: “Douglas Revisited

I'm so grateful that this photography has been rediscovered and so lovingly cared for by this group of people. I grew up hearing about Louie and also Lupe and Memo and the Quinones family. I've only meet these family members a few times if at all. I'm lucky, my mom (Francisca) tells stories from that time and reanimates those memories for me. My mother talked about Louie and his important photography for years, as they both lived in Douglas, and then later Phoenix. The line in the story about the thirteen year old girl later being deported twenty-six years later made me weep unexpectedly. It's so important to tell the true cost of our produce here in Estados Unidos. I'm proud to be kin to the man who shone a beautiful light into the homes of the immigrants (And in some cases, my very own family members!). My auntie sent a link, and I can barely wait to call my mom and talk about this article together. After so many years it's bittersweet. I don't know if I can make it to Douglas, but I encourage everyone to see this show.
