Re: “Southern AZ Pols React to Rep. Steve King's Celebration of Whiteness

Grijalva's as much of a racist as King, just swings the other way.
There's nothing wrong with reducing immigration - this is our country, for native Americans, blacks, whites, Latinx, Asian, etc. this is where we will raise our children and grandchildren so we should leave them a country to live in that is not overpopulated. And not all supporters of reducing immigration are racists.

Re: “So Are Your AZ Politicians Supporting Trumpcare?

Trumpcare keeps all the goodies (pre-existing coverage, etc.) with no way to pay for them. Then adds tax breaks for millionaires, and kicks 24 million people off insurance completely with no plan on how to pay for their care when they show up at the emergency room. It removes the subsidy for older people and throws them on the "mercies" of the market.
It does nothing to rein in costs. Nothing.
Expect healthcare costs to continue to rise.

Re: “T.H.R.E.A.T. Watch: Why Does Trump Call the Press 'Vrag Naroda'?

Just like Obama was a Communist Kenyan. It's always easy to see nefarious motivations in those you disagree with.

Re: “Advice on Welcoming Immigrants, From SXSW

When our grandchildren live in a country with a population is 1 billion people in a few decades (as predicted by U.S. census under current high immigration scenario) I'm sure they will thank these friendly mayors.

Re: “Removing TUSD Superintendent Prioritized Over Finding Replacement

The only way to fix that district is to chisel out smaller districts that can act with focus. And hopefully split the deseg order out to a point it can be buried where the sun don't shine.
I've been here 20 years and that thing has done exactly nothing except cost taxpayers money. And it was 25 years old back then.
It's good for the lawyers I guess.

Re: “Are Vouchers Bad For Students Who Use Them?

Not much to see here, the researchers were pretty confident in the effects of eligibility, but not at all confident in their conclusions of participation.

"although the empirical approach implemented in section 4 can help to
identify the effects of EdChoice eligibility, it cannot help to identify the effects of EdChoice participation"
"These are averages, of course, and there are some reasons to believe that
the private school experiences of EdChoice participants may be better than what we estimate"

Re: “Political Theater: McSally Schedules Town Hall Just in Time To Scramble Critics

Gee, McSally didn't let some liberals set up her town hall. Stop the presses!
And, my gosh, we're actually enforcing our immigration laws like every other country on earth. It's the 4th reich!!
If that woman's son is terrified, it's because of all the ridiculous hyperbole from the press.
