Re: “Out of the Way

We can all see what it is like to live in the 6th most impoverished city in America. One side says let's do more to help the poor and the homeless by giving them more to keep them poor. The other side says let's build our economy and create jobs so we aren't so poor. We need both. There are some that will always be poor either by their lifestyle choices, disability or misfortune. But, we can have less poor people if we were a business friendly, job creating city (that is starting to happen). So we need to meet the needs of the chronic poor with food, clothing and housing and help those that can become productive do so.

Re: “Danehy

Tom, lots of people believe many different things. We can take pieces of scripture and only see the punishment of God or conversely the love of God. That''s why we need to take all of it into consideration to get the balance. 1 Timothy 3:16 sums it up.

Re: “Catch Documentary on Rosemont Mine on TV This Sunday

Your disclaimer says it all. It would be like Shell oil funding a documentary on energy production. I would like to get the straight scoop.

Re: “TUSD Parent: Schools At Risk of Losing Magnet Status Are Being Punished for Being 'Too Brown'

Follow the money on this. It has morphed from the original court order into something radically different, but the same people are drinking from the trough. This is a travesty and a waste of our tax dollars.

Re: “Mass Incarceration of Immigrants is the Focus of a YWCA Discussion Tomorrow Night

We all understand the problem and some of us have compassion for those that are coming here illegally. But, there must be an orderly way to enter. Marco Rubio proposed immigration reform and those on the far right opposed it along with those on the left (unions) that like things the way they are. The real answer is economic growth in the countries they are fleeing from. Most of the immigrants I have talked to would rather be back in their home country and took great risk getting here. Those on the left opposed NAFTA, yet that has created the economic growth in Mexico that is surpassing our own country.

Re: “Nevada's Education Savings Account Will Have Its Day in Court

I find it ironic that those that defend education and evolution would oppose evolutionary changes in education.

Re: “Phoenix TV Station Gets It Right About BASIS

Many of us fought against the "establishment" when we were young. Now it seems that some of us have become the establishment defending the past instead of wanting to see change and progress. Basis is an experiment that should be replicated with other kids who have different skill sets instead of defending a failing model.
