Pay no attention to the dislikes. They are as fraudulent as the information.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Chinese Dribbling

"Made in China" label on a majority of products sold in America, is the only proof we need, that there was without a doubt, crooked politicians on both sides of the political spectrum, that made a fortune by allowing our manufacturing jobs to be shipped by the millions to a brutal communist regime. It's obvious, that the Benjamin, had a great influence in their decision to sell out the American worker.

Re: “New Travel Channel Show Gives Bashful Bandit a Facelift

I think someone is putting a false statement on here about the frat boys in that bar. Ive been going there since 1981 and no frats then unless you might have mistaken the Diry Dozen for a frat boy. Not. I go there every time I come to Tucson just to see whos still alive.

Re: “The Star Gets It Right About Pima County Standardized Test Scores

Gee, what a surprise to find David Safier praising the former Tucson Weekly reporter Danyelle Khmara again. Great to have someone at the ADS spouting just the kind of propaganda you like, isnt it David? That way you can occasionally take a break from your sham castigating of the Star, as you continue to try to throw a cloak over the fact that they pull more punches than they land on what needs criticism in the local educational scene. You and your friend Ms. Khmara can keep telling us those low test scores are all about poverty and conditions in the homes, not mismanagement of the schools. And perhaps you will add that if we just threw more money at the problem districts, things would immediately get SO MUCH BETTER!!!

One wonders if there is any other venue where you would get as little well-informed commentary on your sad enthusiasm for weak journalism, your chronic misrepresentations of what is needed to improve the schools, and your stereotyped, politicized propagandizing as you get here.

That. Is. How. Propaganda. Is. Done. Yeah, right. That IS how it is done. And some of us see right through it and, for the sake of the students, wish you and your cabal would stop doing it.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Friends In MAGA Places

We'er at the brink of a civil war. It's time to stop the insanity, before it's too late. We must come together as a nation, both Democrats and Republican's . We can't allow those seeking to take the power away from the voters to continue their coup and destroy our nation. "A nation divided among it's own self will not stand." It's going to be a horrible day for America, when we witness blood being spilled on our streets, because we couldn't accept the results of election night. It's going to happen, it's just a matter of time. I personally feel a sorrow that things have turned out as they have. I've read of coup's in other parts of the world in third world countries, but I never believed it would be possible in our country, I was wrong, it is very possible.

Re: “Danehy

Tom, it's "Let's you and me...", not "Let's you and I...". "I" is in the nominative case, 'me" the objective case. "Let's" is a contraction of "Let us." Since "us" is objective case, the objective case is called for referring to "us."

Re: “Guest Commentary

Very well said Mr. Bybee, Ill have to pick your brain on how to get some press, I believe I have the talent to create income from my art as well. You could also help me with my writing. I started an autobiography in 2009, you'll have to give it a read and tell me what you think so far. And I applaud your article here, it's all so very sadly true. Let's build trust understanding and opportunities, not walls . M. Nino

Re: “The Star Gets It Right About Pima County Standardized Test Scores

In addition to regressing test scores against poverty rates to estimate academic gains, in this modern day of computers you can actually just type in a question and the computer will give you the average academic gains for each school district.

Just to give you some perspective, I am in another state, in a very large school district where the student acavdemic gains were at the first percentile. A zero percentile doesnt exist. This is as low as it goes. As much as we beat the tar out of TUSD, they came out at the 70th percentile.

David, why dont you drive up to the next state board meeting, put in a speakers slip and make a public record request for average academic gains by school district. Also, we have a NAEP representative whose job it is to serve as a liason with the federal department of education. The feds have an Education Science division who undoubtedly have a six variable regression equation to estimate academic gains. Something with a little more horsepower than your one variable eyeball regression.

Re: “Danehy

CW13:

Yes, you are deranged. That's what tRump Derangement Syndrome truly is. It affects those that believe tRump is worth a shit. It involves those that are presented with provable facts and choose to ignore them because they don't want to admit that they know they're wrong. Congratulations dude, you possess true TDS. Jimi lover or not.

Sorry that it came to this. I never even mentioned you. But hey, if the derangement fits, wear it and wear it proud.

Ol' buddy, ol'pal, 'ol friend. I want to pubicly thank you for teaching me a valuable lesson. Years ago, despite ouir differences we found common ground on several things. Then along came Trump and I became "wrong and delusional"among other things. Lesson learned, never try to be friends with liberal. You suffer from several problems. You suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome so bad that you're blind. You're also a stooge who is jealous of the fact that I saw the guitar God live and in person twice. Something you can only dream of !!

I enjoyed your (& many folks) fantasy about political compromise/cooperation...a similar, follow-up commentary from a hardline Republican would be enlightening, i.e. I can't imagine what their suggested compromises would be. Thanks!

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Friends In MAGA Places

Bruce, "So much corruption on both sides". Funny, every time I look it's just one side getting arrested, for money laundering, for election fraud, for tax fraud, passing foreign money into US elections, bribery, misappropriating tax money, pedophilia (I have a list of 50 republicans from just a few short years), sexual assault you say? I have a list of several hundred republicans from a few short years. That "Both sides do it" from the right wing Is just not cutting as an excuse anymore when it's 90+% one side. I also have a list of 150 accomplishments of liberals that have benifited the lower and middle class, have never seen one of 5 for conservatives. Go ahead, answer that.

Republican paul peterson indicted for child trafficking and selling babies to other LDS members. He was on a mormon mission to marshall islands. He is defending himself by saying he is just running a business. Here is another example of government interfering with business!
