Re: “Kirkpatrick: Time To Impeach Trump

That's great but do you think you could find the time to start fixing some of the other things you have screwed up? They did the same thing with Bill Clinton, and it has taken more than 20 years to hook him up with the Epstein arrest. Can we accomplish anything else in the interim?

Lest we not forget her quote after the election, November of last year-On working with President Donald Trump, Kirkpatrick said she can work with anyone.

Apparently that wasn't true.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Go Back Where You Came From

Nice try Clay. But it doesn't even begin to depict the depths of hate. Cartoon Hilters? The sad thing is this is probably something that can't b e laughed at.

Re: “The Privatization Movement is Losing Support From Democrats and the Occasional Billionaire

John Huppenthal, Peter Sucker and Stretch are, more than likely, all the same dude. Good job assfuck. Dominate a comment thread and give many conservative fuckwits head, and this is what will happen. Assholery. Every time. SAD.

Re: “A Title IX Pep Assembly

Before my time, back in the real old days, in the 20's, in OH, women played BB in high school. Why they stopped, I know not.

Re: “A Title IX Pep Assembly

"Please let the young women do a competent job ..."

I say the same prayer about you whenever I read your column.

For the record, my prayer has never been answered ...

Re: “The Privatization Movement is Losing Support From Democrats and the Occasional Billionaire

Washington Post Headline:

" West Virginia teachers union says it will sue over charter school bill"

Arizona ranks first in the nation in charter school choice. West Virginia, dead last. Zero charters.

The West Virginia teachers union is suing over a bill allowing three charter schools.

Compare: Arizona spends $8,000 per student. West Virginia, $15,000 (NEA rankings and estimates)

Compare Arizona and West Virginia 8th grade math scores from the National Assessment of Educational Progress..

First by education of parents and then by demographic:

Parents Arizona West Virginia
Did not finish high school 265 259
Graduated high school 269 262
Some education after high school 285 274
Graduated college 296 282

Arizona ranges from 60% of a school year ahead of West Virginia to 150% ahead.

Now by demographic:

Demographic Arizona West Virginia
White 296 274
Black 272 254
Hispanic 269 NA
Asian/Pacific Islander 316 NA

Arizona is two academic years ahead of West Virginia in each demographic of Whites and Blacks.

Allowing public education at charter and private schools is the easiest way to improve outcomes for student. Also saves money.

Arizona's $8,000 per student vs West Virginia at $15,000 is a huge problem. Money didn't improve results for West Virginia, it permanently trapped them at a low level of performance. This is a horrendous defeat for children in West Virginia.

A catastrophic defeat considering the terrible economic damage from taxing to no good end. Since 2000, West Virginia added 31,000 jobs. Arizona? Over 700,000 jobs.

Re: “Big Bills

Diagram this sentence: "Until then, don't even bother trying to trying to encouraging voters to sanction raising property taxes and will keep the old statement alive, why should we give them more funds, they feel they have a blank check already?"

Re: “Tucson Salvage

Thank you for your story on overall Tucsons and Americas small mom and pop motels. You wrote half but true details of the citizens living their life in motels.
Looks like you forgot to write the details how the drug and prostitution become a pain in the society and
How the motel owners like Jeegarkumar Amin are
Risking their life to support the community and country people! By their honest work, you have seen lot more at the motel how honest and brave motel owner like Jay Amin fighting alone with drug dealers without fear.
Drugs dealers threatening him and him fighting back with lots of courage. I like your report but try to write the whole truth not partial.
Also dont write the humorous and funny discussion between friends and people As a serious and shameful disrespectfull truth. Looks like as a writer it does not show your wide personality. Feels like you trying to show your expertise in modifying the truth.
Again you should keep the truth and humor separate while writing about people. As a writer you are hurting many people and their trust on you while they allow you to write the facts of their life. May be it is just a story for you to create more fans or become popular in news world.
At the end congratulations for your great coverage on peoples real life and your half truths.
Wise people says if you want people to love you
Win the crowd and Win the freedom
Nice report my friend!
Keep it up
Thank you

Re: “Danehy

Re:dsimpson I didn't mention bankruptcy in my comment but it was simply homeowners walking away when values dipped. The Reform Act was to slow the migration towards white flag economics by individuals that hoped for their own tax payer funded bailout.

https://bankruptcy.findlaw.com/chapter-7/faq-bankruptcy-law-changes.html

I see you mentioning "the uneducated right." Don't lose sight of the fact that you are here debating others. And you almost accomplished it without name calling.

Re: “Danehy

Plagiarism aside, I'd love to see " Sleepy Joe" run for president. The best part would be the first ( and last) debate. When he sees that he's getting slaughtered, he gets up and takes a swing at Trump. That would be interesting.
dsimpson- look me up in Nov. 2020.
