Couldn't disagree more with the reviewer expert guys above and below.
This film was better than The Hurt Locker - should've won the Oscar for many reasons.
Right vs. Wrong in a multi-layered world of fantastic images.
Film was creative, fast-moving, absorbing, thoughtful and FUN!
I get this feeling that our governor wants very little to do with educating other people's kids. I also feel that he's mostly looking forward to surviving his own future, with a tall stack of buttered bread and a big pot of beans. What's next, Doug?
I just got back from Florida, where there is now an issue that has been reported in several places. Trump's behavior has opened the door for people to believe that it is ok to shout down people of color with insults and F-bombs. There is actually a lawsuit there that may set a precedent (or from the new speller-in-chief, a "president"). An American who's a dark fellow (from India) and also a successful medical doctor is suing a real estate company that sold him an expensive house and did not tell him that the neighbors were nasty, violent racists. They stood on his front lawn, tried to come into his house, shouted, swore, threatened, insulted and terrified his whole family. He may win in court.
I am not going to pile on "What, Again" and call him names. I fit all his white guy categories but lack his pathos. With many decades of watching (and mildly participating in) the politics of this country, I have watched "liberals" try to get along on TV with diminishing success. When they wanted to have a dialogue they got slapped down and insulted by rich mainstream media guys like Sean Hannity and Bill O'Reilly who set terrible examples for decent behavior. I have watched "conservatives" in public become more and more entrenched and intolerant and go after anyone who sees our nation from a different position in society.
There is a Grand Canyon's worth of difference between Obama's little monument and Trump's huge wall. Like, billions of taxpayers' dollars. Name calling and creating stupid little names for people aren't helpful either. Soon, Obama will be way gone and no amount of blaming him will work. Hillary too because she has been retired forever. If you voted for Trump, you will need to defend just Trump.
Frances Perkins - your evil/devil comment is appreciated. Because it is so easy to batter down than it is to make better. Solutions require effort and thought. Despite occasional issues my family has had good results from TUSD. But for the knee-jerks there is never mention of goodness or decency or great kids or effective programs or dedicated professionals. Just people on the outside spewing toxic, obnoxious Twitter-type political insults.
We saw what Gov. Ducey did with Arizona's "state trust" land. It is a bait an switch for cash. "Trump Republicans" would sell American souls one by one for cash. Maybe that's how they will try to finance all his schemes without new tax revenue. It is far, FAR worse than "fuzzy math" when Trump stated over and over that he will "build a wall" and "Mexico will pay for it" and then he gets elected and now he has already stated that he plans to ask Congress to provide US taxpayer money for it. That was just plain LYING to the gullible and the foolish. But it worked. It fooled lots of people. It made them feel good for about a month. Mexico will NEVER pay one peso for a stupid wall. Just sell off federal parks to billionaires instead.
I agree with "prudent investment in infrastructure" as a strategy, and would like to include raising dismal salaries too. The Bureau of Labor Statistics says that high school teachers right here in Tucson are paid 43% below the national average. Maybe their current, hardly extravagant pay makes some commenters jealous and outraged, but I think it is a disgrace. No wonder good people leave and schools end up with unqualified subs on daily-rate pay in semi-permanent positions.
