Re: “NAACP Calls For a Moratorium on Charter Schools

I think you hit the head on the nail lc69. If enrollment staffing needs decrease. They only lose money they don't have a right to, because parents have been allowed to exercise some decisions regarding their child's education. Why does the left continue to try to keep these kids locked up? It wouldn't be brainwashing would it?

"Teachers, leave these kids alone."

The only thing worse than McCain is the wacko bird wanting to replace him on the Repub. ticket.
AZ, home of the wacko bird.

Re: “Letter to the Editor

Marty; The police into prostitution I remember the massage parlors run by Sheriff Weldon Burr in Ajo & Country Club there must have be 20. I remember the undersheriff Williams caught with a Cessna D-18 full of marijuana in Minnesota.

I remember Senator Fannin, Judge Deconcini, Tucson Mayor all drinking gambling in a Hacienda on Old Nogales Highway during prohibition and running out the backdoor onto the indian reservation to avoid being arrested it was an election year. I have the picture done by my uncle the dealer bartender of them standing on the reservation laughing.

When the County and City both dont have a general accounting method for procurement, timesheets, billing standards, they never have and they never will. Does anyone remember county ATTY Dennis Deconcini and his "MANTIS" Metropolitan Area Narcotics Interdiction Squad, turned out to be nothing more than a rip crew tooling around in a confiscated lear jet. That cost to operate took all the the monies confiscated. Then set himself up for millions on land trust acquisitions

Oh yea the Sheriff out sweating a junkie/drug felon to find others to bust allowed him to carry a gun. DEA out offering to sell looking for those that are buying so the meet was done at the Airport and a shootout and killing. Just what police and prosecutors are allowing is illegal activity just dont let it get out of hand. Police skim off the top County atty enforce with plea bargains and deals get a cut off of seizures and fines.

Or the superior court Judge that ha $300,000 in debt to a vegas Hotel and all the sudden the debt was forgiven

Why would it be business any different that what has been going on for years. Electing a puritan won't solve the problem neither will gender, sexual identification, marriage, or race will replace greed.

Re: “Khizr Khan Calls On McCain To Rebuke Trump

Mr Kahn just passed the bar at age 60.

Like others applying to the program, Khan submitted a law degree from another country — Pakistan. He received his basic training at the University Law College of Punjab University in Lahore, Pakistan. The LL.B., or “bachelor of laws,” which Khan earned there is a two-year program no longer offered in the United States.

Furthermore, University Law College is a small college where courses are taught by professors trained in British as well as Sharia law, the brutally oppressive Islamic legal code that Khan, a devout Muslim, has said supersedes “all other juridical works.” In fact, Khan is a world-renowned expert on Sharia, not the Constitution.

Khan’s alma mater is run by vice chancellor Mujahid Kamran, an anti-Semitic 9/11 denier who in 2013 published a book that blames the Saudi-sponsored 9/11 attacks by al-Qaida on “Zionists,” and trashes the U.S. as a complete dictatorship. His book, 9/11 and the New World Order, was published by the University of Punjab.

Re: “Letter to the Editor

Blight happens everywhere. We say urban renewal gift huge chunk of monies but nothing but to lift existing conditions.

None of the monies here ever went to infrastructure master plan. Mostly fought by a bunch of NIMBYs with short side opinions on what they dont like. With each new decade new NIMBYs,

Gone is a master plan but for the bike paths completed. Tucson Electric's main office was bought 20 years ago for the tie between the Aviation Corridor and I-10. Then a new police chief thought as a enforcement control device dropped the speed limit down to 35. The second year law student researched and AZDOT had to remind the city all speed limits were set by the state parameters. That Aviation Corridor was set at 45 so thousand of tickets had to be thrown out. Where was the city Atty and streets on that, so we are paying retirement for the best and brightest

None of this would be possible with a master plan but the county wants to be mayor and council all-in-one thats why some city council members live in phoenix. This is going quickly to a sleepy college town cost to start and keep a business is to much. County sups have long given up on continuing education for the workforce. Question can the city hang on long enough to meet it's retirement obligations? The infrastructure is shrinking and going fast. Just drive around the commercial and industrial areas see much improvement since the last year or the last 5? we have a new outlet I am proud

Re: “The Real Madness

Well with the recent DEA announcement it looks like the political hacks running today have given in again.

This has become a great windfall for so many policing and social structuring part of the economy. These have great interest in keeping it going as well as establishing their need or promoting so.

The sorry part these have missed their mark time after time. There are no benchmarks for success other than the money numbers game. More confiscated more arrested more interned more addicted.

Can anyone take the time what would actually happen if this did change the schedule classification from 1 to 2. Overnight and in a storm fashion upsetting so many established businesses. The Dispensaries and agents growers need this to stay the same.

As not under federal eye on so many fronts Banking, FDA, DEA, IRS, Interstate Commerce, International Trade, FTC, Commercial banking and investment banking business structure. States will be open to federal court oversight on business practices and investor holding.

Federal courts will be open on so many fronts criminal as well as civil. This will really test states rights over federal rights on so many fronts. LIke the story this is just another chapter in the BS and so many are thinking AZ has legalization possible in November.

The truth of the matter is the DEA cannot and does not want to mess with commerce laws. The DEA would just as soon to have this parameters of law enforcement and control left up to commerce laws. They would lose as sure as sun sets way to much case law precedent.

Want the next chapter of corruption graft greed and civil discourse related to marijuana being tied to all drugs. Vote to legalize in November a whole new read. Screw the patient the mentally dependent the chronic ailing dependent extort as much as possible to educate LMFAO

Re: “The Real Madness

Years ago, I took a trip to Amsterdam. I paid a visit to the Hash Marihuana & Hemp Museum. I learned quite a bit about why cannabis and related products are truly illegal in the good ole US of A.

The one thing that stood out on my visit were the US newspaper articles displayed which targeted cannabis as something enjoyed by (I don't remember the exact words used, but you should get the idea) the scary jazz loving criminal negroes.

Need I say more? Okay, I shall.

There were also articles and other advertising propaganda targeted against the evil black man which were sponsored by none other than, get ready for this...Anheuser-Busch! Imagine that. There's a definite conflict of interest here; yet the majority of White America in those days were convinced that, if spooky colored folk were the primary users of cannabis and its related products, then there must be something inherently sinister happening inside of that plant.

It's incredible to me that, damn near 90 years later, people are still swayed by greedy corporations, slimy politics, racism and plain old ignorance. It's time to realize that we must legalize.

Re: “Khizr Khan Calls On McCain To Rebuke Trump

Well said Nehmo. Contrast that to the Orlando killers father attending HRC rally. Their excuse was the father had nothing to do with the son's activities. (He did kill 49 at the Orlando nightclub) But when it fits the left's narrative they will swap the rules to fit their needs.
