Re: “Civil Action

With all due respect, Rat T, you are the one here expressing "Instant outrage." It appears to me that your instant outrage is fired off before reading this article - an article that I find expressive of hope and a desire to find understanding and virtually devoid of outrage - except for your comment.

Re: “Rep. Randy Friese Tells Us Where He Stands on K-12 Funding

It is time to vote for the candidates who will support and fund public education, including Pima Community College and the U of A. Friese fits that description and he will get my vote.

Re: “Winners and Losers in the Classrooms First Initiative Council Proposals

And I think it is important to understand that charter schools being the big winners means corporations are the big winners.
In the beginning of the charter school movement in Arizona a few caring people could put together a charter school for the purpose of rescuing kids who had been discarded and given up on by public district schools. Now the rules have changed and a whole lot of money is now required to start a charter school; a rule change making charters corporate entities, some whose stock is traded on Wall Street.
Charter schools should no longer be seen as public schools, because they are not. Therefore charter schools should not receive public money.

Re: “Not All is Lost with Immigration Reform, Latinos Can Still Make a Difference in November

George W. Bush received more than 40% of the Latino vote. He served 2 terms.

In 2008, John McCain received 31% of the Latino vote and he lost the election. Mitt Romney got 27% of the Latino vote and lost.

The Republican Party, concerned, conducted an autopsy and concluded that the Republican Party should reach out to Latino voters and pass comprehensive immigration reform.

The autopsy was ignored and the Republican Party has doubled down on alienating Latino voters. I predict the Republican Party will receive a record low percentage of the Latino vote in November.

If Caterpillar is a "green" multinational corporation, Planet Earth is in deep trouble.

Re: “Border Patrol Gets a New Boss in Effort to Fight Agency's Abuse, Corruption

I do not support union busting until now. This is one union that needs to be reigned in if not broken up.
