Re: “NAACP Ratifies Resolution Calling For a Moratorium on New Charter Schools

All I can say is thank God we who can't afford private schools have an option besides our mediocre-to-awful public school system. More charter schools please.

Re: “Tucson Fashion Week: Answering the Community Craving for Fashion

In Tucson, it's too hot 9 months out of the year to wear anything remotely resembling 'fashion' , at least for men.

Re: “Carmona Takes The Gloves Off

Even a whiff of corruption is too much in law enforcement. Using RICO funds (unconstitutional in the first place) extracted from drug dealers to pay for a fancy banquet crosses a few lines. I'm a Democrat and I'll vote for Hillary, but not Nanos. His opponent will be the first Republican I've voted for in years.

Re: “Conservative AZ Leaders to TUSD: 'Let's You and Him Fight'

The MAS program was a radical leftist program. It used source material that is ideological, not fact-based. For example, it taught that white settlers purposely wiped out native Americans with germ warfare (something with no factual basis).
It taught that illegal immigration was not only ok, but a positive good, promoting the myth that the Southwestern U.S. (and even the entire U.S.) rightly belongs to Mexico when Mexico in truth possessed the Southwest for less than 30 years.
The only ones who could make such a claim are the Navajo, Tohono, Apache, Hopi, and others that truly were dispossessed first by the Spanish and later by the Anglo settlers.
Had the MAS studies been a positive fact-based program, it would have been better received. But it was created by the most radical leftists to pursue an agenda. When even a generally left of center moderate such as myself dislikes it, it's doomed.

Re: “Truth Through Fiction

Ah I thought it was going to be about truth, not a just pro-illegal-immigration piece.

Re: “Is TUSD Stiffing Teachers? The Star Says So, Repeatedly.

TUSD is a money pot and political base for the Grijalvas.

Re: “Ask A Mexican

Well, you fall into the lazy trap of blaming homelessness on laziness. Most homeless are in that position due to mental illness, drug addiction (including alcoholism) or both. Of the rest, many are not lazy, they just can't manage to fit into our crazy 9to5 world.
It's all for yucks I know, but I hate that stupid cliche.
