Re: “Danehy

Douchey, tRump, Brownnoseback, as well as most other Republicans are Economic morons. Trickle-Down-Economics, one of their most ingenious deceptions thanks to Saint Reagan , still rears it's ugly head from time to time but dies a swift death. Republicans ,such as George W. Bush, can take an Economy that is running on jet fuel with surpluses in the Treasury and millions of jobs created by President William Clinton, and turn that Economy into a crippled, job-shedding, debt-ridden international disgrace that dominoes the entire world into a Second Great Depression. Once the Republicans have tried their idiotic plans for the Economy , etc and have failed miserably , Democrats are elected in droves to salvage the shit-hole,(I can say that because tRump said it) that's left. By the time Democrats have rejuvenated our Economy and lives back to an acceptable level along come the Republicans with their lies and deceptions and start stealing elections again by blaming Democrats for the previous mess we were in. The brains of most Americans can't remember what happened last week much less what happened 4 to 6 years ago and they fall for the lies. And the cycle continues....

Re: “Sour Grapes

What a crock! Not sure where this reviewers head space was at, but the play that I saw at the Rogue theater was, in my opinion, an artistic achievement. The Grapes of Wrath is a very complex story... discerning who is the protagonist is an art-form unto itself. Translating this complex story on a stage with bare minimal props - from the dust bowl, along the highway and eventually to the fields of California is no easy feat. All the little attention to detail in the staging of the actors, including the flow and movement which propelled the story-line, added to the tapestry of enveloping us into the story of the Joad's struggles. As for the actors and their performance, it was superb. Each actor was able to draw me into the character that they were portraying seamlessly. Reviewers themselves have to take in account their own limitations, especially their own expectations. Sherilyn arrived at this venue with expectations and pencil in hand, and from her review, a limited perception... I arrived with no expectations and was immensely entertained... my hat is off to the Rogue Theater and their production...

Re: “Death Sentence

Such a Tragedy!!!

Pima County Prison Officials, in my view, are complicit in this young man's murder by placing him in a Jail Cell with a known Psychotic!

Their "DREAM" has become America's nightmare!

The chickens hatched as a result of three decades of Pima County Open Border Policy, supported by "Cheap Mexican Labor" mainstream Republicans like McCain and Flake (along with the USUAL Left Wing suspects), have come home to roost!

I guess Pulitzer Tommy doesn't listen to the news when they give economic updates. ( See Apple) Compared to Tommy, a stump is a genius.
He is right about Romero, though.

Re: “Legislation Launch

Nicely expressed the turmoil of Cannabis.

Having grown up around this area. Marijuana has been a part of my life on and off mostly on.

Having watched enforcement Since "MANTIS" ( Metropolitan Area Narcotics Interdiction Squad) precursor to RICO thefts.

Clinton & Janet Reno behind and rallying for the Civil Seizure and class rating called "credit rating score" FICO. Government allows licencee monopolies to assess rates on everything using this credit rating chart. Like Auto & Health Insurance mortgage rates etc. This sealed the deal to pillage and plunder without court oversight and restrictions but support.

Bush did the only thing he was capable of trying to look presidential. Cheney kept saying you look good Georgie Boy just keep walking

The Obama pandering not to disenfranchise but to placate into a false sense of acceptance and security. After California's Marijuana Medical had a trial run. He made great mileage on this but made sure the end would be running on empty. It was possible to change the schedule classification by Presidential/Executive order the same way it was put on by NIXON. Over 50 different bureaus need to sign off on this all with lobbyists as directors. IT IS NEVER GOING TO HAPPEN.

So through all of these years my use of cannabis was easier less complicated. When illegal than now under Medical. I as well as so many other's over 90,000 wanted to do the right thing. Life has played it relates of age. I find myself in need rather than desire since, background I know how to administer.
I would rather go back to the old days of illegality but this is not about ME. This is why I joined the MMJ program.

However just how PROP 205 wanted change the constitution and build a covert program the morphed the state government in every function and agency but in anonymity. This was just another ruse to fuck us and irreversible. IMHO The ADA (Arizona Dispensary Association) is just like another layer of credit rating services out to extort by court means all they can. Back away from theses minions of deceit. If you use cannabis look at what they have done for the patient in the last 5 years NOTHING.

Opening up a store and selling product that is market protected, price controlled is not a notable pinnacle of virtue. Since won the lottery it is, the help to the community NONE. But millions to try and repress the citizens with the Lucky Luciano/ type commission bullshit.

Re: “Still Dreaming

DACA could get fixed tomorrow.
Simply mandate nationwide use of E-Verify and end chain migration and DACA would be the law of the land in a month.
But low-wage industries and proponents of 100% open borders want to keep the high immigration/low-wage regime in place so they shout slogans and call anyone who opposes them racists.

Re: “Everybody in Arizona Is For Education

As well as for everybody should be for peace in the world, everybody should perceive the best level of education. I think that people who have understood this simple truth in Arizona are very wise. These are the people who have realized the value of education and they can truly say that they are continuous learners. These people can inspire and motivate others to do so as well. I am sure that students and learners of Arizona will only benefit from the fact that they could use the for all of their educational endeavors.

Re: “Told You So: Gawker Names Arizona Worst State

Having lived in DeToilet (murder rate 2x Chicago) and lived in parts of Milwaukee where it is over 50% Afro-American and the murder rate is same as Chicago (Chicongo), considering that the murder rate in Phoenix is only 10, which is 1/4th DeToilet, yeah, you might want to rethink how bad life in AZ really is. Also, Flagstaff was noted, but the White Mountains, from Payson to Alpine, over 100 miles, is far better, including a ski resort with nearly 2,000 feet verticals. The authors ignorance is obvious, unless he likes murder and rape and all the other glorious activities common in SHITHOLES like DETROIT (and HAITI, etc.).

Re: “Will Congress Find an Agreement That Protects the DREAMers From Deportation?

Whether or not the Dreamers receive protection sits squarely in the laps of Democrats. Not everyone is going to get everything they want out of this deal. It's called compromise. But, it's the Democrats that will be saying NO to the Dreamers if they walk away from the table over enhanced border security and other immigration reform.

Re: “All School Districts Are Not Created Equal in Ducey's Budget

...but while you're working on trying to get Harvard to give up some of its endowment to SUNY-Purchase, please DO keep shedding light on the inequities within the public system. You might even want to start calling performance-based funding "welfare for the rich." All this is very helpful in breaking down that false dichotomy between "public" and "private" and debunking the notion that tax-derived funds are somehow more appropriately (or equitably) applied in privileged "public district" schools like Fruchthendler (or any school in District 13) rather than in privileged charters like Basis or privileged privates like Castle Hill. Every sector of K-12 is shot through with inequities and in a society with an economic system (and higher education system) like ours, it will remain so. Take a look at "public" middle school and high school admissions in NYC some time if the local disparities are not stark enough for you and you want an even more depressing vision of what the "public" system in the U.S. really is.

Moral of the story is that fiddling with the superstructure when you can't change the base is setting yourself a never-ending whack-a-mole task: as soon as you hammer one down, another one pops up, because it's the structure of the system that creates the problem. Meanwhile, those who prefer to avoid Sisyphean tasks would be well advised to invest money and time where it counts: in their children, rather than in pointless advocacy with a broken public system. Put your child in the school that will best serve their needs, and in Arizona, apply tax credits or ESAs to the greatest extent possible. Higher ed at the institutions it will most benefit students to attend is more than $60K per year and it is highly unlikely that anyone is going to cut your kid a break on college costs. Merit aid scarcely exists and "need-based aid" at most institutions assumes parents should re-mortgage their homes at age 50+ and students should take on tens of thousands of dollars of debt. That's the reality, and the notion that anything can be forced to become "equitable" within this overall context is simply absurd.

Re: “All School Districts Are Not Created Equal in Ducey's Budget

Hey, David -- do Amherst and other schools in the Ivy League have larger endowments than other institutions of higher education? Do schools with larger endowments offer more need-based aid? Do some of them have financial aid policies that guarantee to meet student need without loading undergraduates up with tens of thousands of dollars of un-dismissable student loan debt? Why don't you work on that project, the project of equalizing higher ed: all colleges and universities should have the same resources, so that whether or not your K-12 education prepares you to get into one of the good ones does not make such a huge difference to your employment and professional school prospects and the extent to which you graduate from college indentured to the banking system.

Good luck with that. Until you accomplish it, you will not stop parents with resources investing them (or lobbying through their relationships and connections for public funds to be invested) in their children's K-12 schools.

Re: “Un Gringo Chilango

Dan, a really insightful and interesting piece from someone who's always had a wonderful facility for writing and with words in general. I well remember how, as GoR frontman, you were able to manipulate huge crowds with consummate ease. What pleased me most about this essay was that you sounded more positive about life than I can remember for a long time. Mexico is obviously very good for you. See you over in Blighty ere too long, hopefully. Take care.

Re: “All School Districts Are Not Created Equal in Ducey's Budget

Does this mean that Santa Rita High School is NOT under attack from Vail school district or Mr. Clodfelter's new proposal? In other words, Vail might have enough money to build that high school that it needs?
