Re: “Did I Underestimate the Impact Of Open Enrollment In My Last Post?

Good God, David. You are actually willing to assert that "the fault is not TUSD's administration, teachers and curriculum," but the "Republican-majority legislature"? But the legislature did not create the conditions that made the parents of more than 15 thousand students want to go to the time and trouble to fill out paperwork and provide transportation to alternative schools. Get out of your damn home office some time and go look at TUSD sites. Then visit District 16 sites. It is not just a different world, it is a different universe, a different dimension of reality. Spend a day observing in a TUSD classroom. Then spend a day observing in a District 16 classroom. Be HONEST with yourself for a change and admit that if you were a parent whose child's education and future were on the line, you would not have let your child suffer the conditions that prevail in some (if not all) of TUSD's schools -- in a district, I might add, that has the highest per pupil funding in the county.

People on your side of the political fence / in your tribe mislead yourselves and others (or shall we call a spade a spade and just say LIE?) as easily, automatically, and naturally as you breathe.

Re: “Did I Underestimate the Impact Of Open Enrollment In My Last Post?

But let's think about the savings to the environment by not running all those buses. We have cut greenhouse gasses and prolonged the current cooling period. Plus TUSD could sell the shuttered buses and eliminate payroll positions. I wonder how much they saved? Use that savings to increase teacher pay.

Re: “Danehy

So, it's okay to be disrespectful to someone because they're an ex-New Yorker and a Navy vet? That's straight out of the tRump playbook. Acting like an asshole towards veterans and their families is something you shouldn't emulate. What you should be doing is feeling shame and apologising for your actions, not making feeble excuses for them.

Also, nobody expects you to believe that tRump could ever be your priest, but you should expect him to have standards that make him a decent human being. Because of his childish actions, the USA are perceived as a bunch of clowns on the world stage. Iran is refusing to work with us because of that dumb shit he pulled by calling an air strike and then cancelling it. If he had just assessed the situation properly and shut his big stupid mouth in the first place, we wouldn't be where we're at.

Learn that tRump's actions aren't just damaging this country, they're damaging how the rest of the world views this country.

Re: “Police Dispatch

I fail to see the relevance of this continuing dispatch business. OK, a guy got drunk and acted out, in today's environment I am certain the U of A will deal with the 2nd woman not feeling safe and kick him out. This innocuous
reporting serves who? and for the purpose of?

Re: “CNN Notes Raul Grijalva of New Mexico Is Calling for Trump's Impeachment

not the first time CNN got it wrong, didn't check their facts, and were just plain lazy in their reporting. Accuracy doesn't matter, the anti trump flavor is the salient thing here. Look in the mirror CNN and you will see why fake news, facts, truth etc., from printed and broadcast companies are in play these days.

Re: “Smoke Screening

this article has ignored the effect that background contamination has. I submit that any soil existing in Arizona or anywhere else contains things like radiation, lead, cadmium, pesticides and insecticides used since the industrial revolution. Likely the levels are below levels as recommended by EPA, et al. Produce has been eaten from soil containing chemicals referenced in this article and life as we know it continues to exist. Retesting commercial pot is a waste of time and money. if you are a user and worried that you might not live forever, treat your own soil and grow your own product. Besides if you don't challenge your immune system, it's reliability can be compromised.

Re: “Danehy

You must've thought long and hard to come up with another negative trump musing that : speaks to binge haters,to the keep tucson and america shitty commenters, and somehow doesn't just repeat the previous fifty trump opinion articles you've already written. This is just more of the same, with the exception of sports, most of your recent articles are similar.
I know it's not easy given your length in this job, but come on Tom, I know you can do better

Re: “Danehy

I must admit I was nothing short of shocked by the all-out hatred people have for the President. I have about half a dozen friends that feel that way. Two of them are actually very good friends. One is a bartender, the other someone I like to meet for beers a few times a week. The minute Trump was elected they went into a full tilt rage. I got them to agree on no more talk about politics. We can talk sports, women, cars motorcycles even religion. Being an atheist I can't contribute much but's it's better than the constant hatred of all things Trump.
I have decided that I will not say another word about him. I ain't changing your mind and you ain't changing mine. So, why fight?
As far as Henry J. goes.being an ex-New Yorker and a Navy vet I'm sure he can defend himself. If you re-read our posts you'll notice he said I didn't read newspapers which was quite untrue. I left it as I may have forgotten, i simply didn't remember. You said I don't know you which is true, but you don't know much about me. I supported Ted Cruz until Trump got the nomination. Then it was him or Hillary. A simple choice in my mind. There are plenty of things about Trump I don't like. Lots of thing he says or does I don't approve of. But, I can say the same thing about my wife. I don't think I'm about to use that as an excuse to leave her after 35 years.
Idolize Trump? I don't think. I idolize my kid brother who broke his neck in a diving accident in the Coast Guard when he was 19. How he handled it was amazing.
In closing let me sum it up by saying that I voted for Trump to be my president, not my priest.

This cartoonist is doing his best to emulate Google's admitted attempts at affecting election outcome.

Looks like the Russians may actually be us. Or better yet Google employees.

Re: “CNN Notes Raul Grijalva of New Mexico Is Calling for Trump's Impeachment

Raul hasn't represented AZ residents for years. But they were wrong as it's not New Mexico but old Mexico that he represents. And Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragau and the DR.

CNN's Jim Acosta's new book went straight to #1 on the NY Times WORST Seller List.

Re: “CNN Notes Raul Grijalva of New Mexico Is Calling for Trump's Impeachment

Reporters often write "Tom Cotton (R-Arizona). When they're clueless about the two-letter abbreviations, they shouldn't try to guess the state.

I don't know why CNN decided to give Grijalva to New Mexico, but it'd be OK with me if they want him.
