Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Time For Greta

I actually pity you for that asinine comment.

Greta is in no way gullible and she's using the media for the benefit of her cause. She's not being exploited by it.

Regarding David Hogg, you're really gonna go there. He didn't suffer from media exploitation. His detractors sure did though.

Greta will do just fine with or without your support.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Time For Greta

I actually pity that poor gullible child. She didn't have the sense to stop the media from exploiting her, and she'll suffer for it later -- like David Hogg, Andrea Dworkin, and the original Children's Crusade.

Humans -- all humans -- are the same species.

The sooner we accept this fact, the sooner we can deal with the myriad of man-made problems we have created trying to pretend otherwise.

Re: “What Will It Take For Arizona's Education Funding to Catch Up With Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana and That Distant Star, West Virginia?

State priorities for all programs need a complete overhaul -- and a legislature with guts enough to require the executive branch to cooperate and do it. It must with compassion, but a non partisan look at the balance of spending for the future (education) and spending to drive somewhere faster with carbon based fuel, or pay bureaucrats to draft documents with little but fiscal cost monitoring at base.

The reorganization needs to look at infrastructure vs.people services with an eye toward assuring citizens have a bright future and illegal immigrants are treated humanely with compassion but with the understanding they too must contribute to the state commensurably with benefits received, be it in state service or tax contribution.

The economy affects the budget but should not affect the core of public services our society demands, including good educational standards, protection of the innocent and value of individuals.

Re: “Mountain View Teacher Resigns After Alleged Relationship With Student Discovered

The article does not identify the student as a female. It may not know.

While I am not Jewish (not that it really matters; just a disclaimer). It seems to me to be the right thing to do. There is a land, a country called Israel. This territory was established for Jewish people, no???

It may well be that the "all Jacuzzi's are hot tubs, BUT not all hot tubs are Jacuzzi's fits well here, if you get what I'm meaning. And, I hope you do!!!

Reductions in immigration would help. When people look at the districts and see that they are educating children of illegal immigrants, they are much less likely to want to pay more for that - or even force the rich to do so.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Impeachment Light?

And if you believe that, then you're more delusional than I ever imagined.

I just love how all of you sock puppet trolls double down when the negative facts about your orange chosen one rear their ugly head. If you converted all of that hatred and negativity into acceptance of reality, you guys could see things for what they are and have a positive impact on our current situation. But, alas, you tRump cultists continue to breed nothing but hate and give false glory to a man who would be pushing a hot dog cart if he wasn't born with a silver spoon firmly lodged in his mouth.

The irony of it is that you tRump coddlers would give your left nut to bask in the glory of your orange chosen one, yet he wouldn't even bother to piss on you if you were on fire. As far as he's concerned, if you're not one of his lawyers, fixers or someone who is putting money in his pocket...you're just an inconvenient pile of shit he doesn't care to step in.

You tRump defenders are truly the most delusional group that exists.

Let's just call it a late night "sucker punch." It looks like he is smarter than them.

Re: “Mountain View Teacher Resigns After Alleged Relationship With Student Discovered

To be clear, just because the other person was of age the teacher just broke the cardinal rule, do not get sexually involved with the students. Period, especially when you work at the same school, and he was most likely married.

Re: “Mountain View Teacher Resigns After Alleged Relationship With Student Discovered

The article clearly said she was 18, to insinuate otherwise is wrong! So in this particular case, what Timmy wrote was out of line! Not a crime ... Timmy are you from California?

Re: “Mountain View Teacher Resigns After Alleged Relationship With Student Discovered

Its a student/teacher relationship. Just as many businesses won't allow supervisors date their subordinates, because to the vast difference in authority, grade schools don't allow teachers to date their students. Its not PC-its a recognition of the potential for abuse.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Impeachment Light?

I am thankful that this publication allows us the opportunity to express our opinions in an open forum. It is unfortunate that there seems to be two or three that feel they must ridicule and name call those they don't agree with. I am not going to list names but we know who they are.

I would encourage the Weekly to remove them before we lose our privileges.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Impeachment Light?

This says it all:

House Democratic leaders are bracing for some defections among a group of moderate Democrats in swing districts who are concerned a vote to impeach President Trump could cost them their seats in November.

Lawmakers and senior aides are privately predicting they will lose more than the two Democrats who opposed the impeachment inquiry rules package in late September, according to multiple officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to talk frankly. Two senior Democratic aides said the total could be as many as a half-dozen, while a third said the number could be higher. (MSN News)

That says that this it totally partisan as they will not vote the facts, they will vote for political survival.

This will be blown out by the Senate faster than you can say "lock her up."

Re: “Mountain View Teacher Resigns After Alleged Relationship With Student Discovered

IF.... Yes, Tim you are correct, of course. The article stated she is 18 and nothing more. AND... Evidently the investigation by the Police turned up nothing. So.... It is not a crime according to Officials. Furthermore Mr Chipres age is not stated (and to some that would matter).
