Re: “One-Term Wonder?

A word or three about Mr. Clodfelter: It is one thing to forgive and understand. It is quite another to forget that a man who has run in umpteen elections and finally won a seat in our legislature has shown very poor judgment putting his personal life on the internet where it might -- and has -- become public knowledge. And poor judgment tends not to be compartmentalized, as is perhaps demonstrated by the screen saver caper. A son of old Texas chooses not the Lone Star flag to display on his laptop but the battle flag of a cabal of states which sought to defend chattel slavery by armed rebellion against the sovereign United States of America, whose constitution many of their leaders had sworn to uphold.

I'd like to suggest freeing Mr. Clodfelter up to work full-time at his printing business, including the production of yard signs for other people's campaigns. If his clients purchase as many as he has displayed of his own around LD 10 he should never miss his legislative salary.

There is a reason neither of the Republicans elected in recent years to Tucson area legislative seats has survived a re-election campaign. They have been seen to be rubber stamps for their Maricopa-centric caucus rather than supporters of the preferences of their own constituents.

Re: “One-Term Wonder?

And just when was the last time Democrats redrew district lines? In this state we've had an independent redistricting commission following the 2000 and 2010 censuses. Both commissions were criticized by the dissatisfied. Both gave the state congressional and legislative districts that pretty much favored Republicans. There has not been a Democratic majority in either house of our legislature in decades. As to Congress, we have two majority-minority districts that are fairly safe for Democrats, four very Republican districts and three that are up for grabs.

Re: “My Pick For Superintendent of Public Instruction: Kathy Hoffman

Horne and Huppenthal,two legislative hacks (sort of like a couple of EVIT employees) who tried to ride racial animosity to higher office. Then Douglas,an obvious incompetent, who was ignored on any education policy by her own party. Might as well try a younger educator, rather than career politician carper bagger from California.

Re: “Candidates on Cannabis, Part 3

Liberal Democrats socialist KYRSTEN SINEMA and DAVID GARCIA are running for Senate & Governor respectively. Sinema / Garcia both proudly supports "restructuring or "abolishing" ICE, sanctuary cities, amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, using taxpayer funds for illegal aliens & DACA. In addition, both are weak on border security and national defense. Garcia supported by both La Raza & MALDEF.

If you OPPOSE illegal immigration, taxpayer funds used for illegal aliens, sanctuary cities, amnesty r Please VOTE NO for KYRSTEN SINEMA & DAVID GARCIA this November....we can't afford anymore Democrats.

Vote Doug Ducey and Martha McSally for Governor and senate.

ote this election for candidates who prioritize citizens over illegal aliens (bet you thought that was a given ...not anymore.) Those who oppose sanctuary cities, open borders, non citizens voting, amnesty for millions of illegal aliens and taxpayer funded in state college tuition discounts for illegals. That means NO Democrats. Democrats want to encourage, reward, protect illegal aliens with jobs, amnesty, drivers licenses, discounts for college tuition, scholarships, then after they're here....protect them from deportation. This creates MORE illegal entry and the Democrats know this.

Recent Gallup poll- almost 60% of Democrats now view socialism positively, little changed from 2010 survey.

The current migration at our southern border is costing taxpayers a Kings Ransom. Fleeing persecution? or fleeing for freebies? they sure don't stay in Mexico when they reach "safety" or ask for political asylum in Mexico. Why? because Mexico will give them NOTHING. So they make the long journey to our border, our generous Democrats and our tax dollars. Just debating DACA in congress is costing taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars..... thank the parents.

Just a few examples of the more outrageous costs associated with illegal immigration, we will pass this burden on to our children and grand children as has been passed on to us.

*The cost of educating illegal aliens children is staggering. From K-12 it costs taxpayers $122,000 for EACH illegal alien student. This does not include the billions spent on bilingual education for illegal aliens.

*Taxpayers in numerous states are funding in state college tuition discounts for illegal aliens. Cost to taxpayers over a billion dollars annually.

*30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens.Does not include local jails and State Prisons. At $21,000 per year expense per inmate in Federal Prison U do the math.

*$3Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate, process Illegal aliens in the Criminal justice system. I repeat 3 MILLION a DAY.

*$2.2Billion dollars a year is spent on is spent on food assistance programs such as SNAP (food stamps) WIC, & free school lunches.

If you OPPOSE illegal immigration, taxpayer funds used for illegal aliens, sanctuary cities, non citizens voting, open borders, amnesty for millions of illegal aliens, weak border security, tax increases. VOTE NO for ALL Democrats this November.

Re: “UA Campus Health Celebrates 100 Years

I am not sure I understand your complaint. What is the cost for campus medical?

Posted by Debbie V Altana on 10/18/2018 at 4:13 PM

Re: “UA Campus Health Celebrates 100 Years

FYI:

Health Services at the UofA are provided, with a COST, to Students. If Students are unable to pay this Health Care Fee , their Bursar's Account is Charged this Health Service Fee. At Graduation, a Student with an outstanding Bursar Balance will NOT receive their Diploma and are denied access to University Transcript Services. In a word: OUTRAGEOUS!!!

The UofA is a For-Profit Business run by the Business Corporation, The Board of Regents

Re: “One-Term Wonder?

If Dems can't win at the polls they redraw the district voting lines. And then claim it's for racial balance.

Why, when they aren't?

No surprise that you are anti charter. It goes along with being anti child. From abortions to teachers unions, these poor kids can't get a break.

Re: “Candidates on Cannabis, Part 3

I don't understand why anyone would be against the legalization. Why? Because they just think it's "wrong" ?

Re: “One-Term Wonder?

I love it when Democrats from swing districts talk about their legislation they will introduce after they win election. They forget to mention the majority if GOP does not hear bills from such people just as when the Ds controlled years ago. It is a matter of life, majority rules.

This can't end good. Other democrats have said they caught her in multiple lies.
