Good god what an idiot. He is stupid to think he can stop the wall that prevents the illegals for coming over and voting for him.

Ah, the old red tape parade. No wonder most people can't stand environmentalists.

Re: “The Skinny

There is absolutely no evidence that the Republicans want to "dismantle" public education so enough of the Obama-Dem lies, thank you very much. The vouchers make it possible for poor students stuck in bad public schools to get what they think will be a better education elsewhere, so what is the objection to that?

Re: “The Skinny

As a less-than-wealthy parent who, nevertheless, would like to send my kids to decent schools, please accept my thanks for making me aware of this program.

Re: “The Skinny

What would you know about IQ?

Your IQ dips into the negatives.

It is not, and it will never be your decision, unless it's your child.

If your simple mind can't comprehend that, there is no hope for you.

But hey, it's alright, you lost hope years ago.

Quit making the personal business of others your own.

Re: “The Skinny

Then I'm correct ac, dc, you don't have the mental capacity to answer the question nor the intellectual integrity.

I'll repeat it for you.

How many of those children with beating hearts make it out alive?

I'll even give you the answer because obviously it's way past your IQ.

Re: “The Skinny

I answered your question.

It's NONE of your business when it comes to abortion. Unless it's your child.

It's between a woman and her doctor, sometimes the father in special circumstances.

What would you know about a beating heart anyways? Your heart obviously stopped frozen cold years ago.

Beat it and take your fake Christianity with you.

Re: “The Skinny

retrorv - "I thought you were against using tax dollars to underwrite private ventures."

Have no clue where you got that. Governments are by far the least efficient organizations to deliver services.

Lots of trigger words in your post so let me interpret for you.

"Rich parents..." You really mean white people. And I can see why you're scared to death by that. When it comes to Sunnyside and TUSD that would mean you might as well be in Nogales, MX.

Re: “The Skinny

Not your choice Wrong, Again.

The choice is between a woman and her doctor.

Get a hobby and quit harassing people which you have no business to harass.

Re: “The Skinny

I'm liberal on most issues, but I don't get why most liberals are against vouchers. The state is still funding education, they are just allowing the funding to be used by different schools. Given that the U.S. spends more on public education per pupil than most developed nations (yet has less to show for it), I don't see much of a downside to seeing if private schools can make better use of the money. If it turns out that they do a good enough job that some public schools shut down because the students that used to go there are getting a better education, isn't that a win for everybody?

Re: “The Skinny

I love the way you dismiss the poor. They deserve access to the best education. And by the way, this term "a traditional public school," has been replaced with, another failing public school.

Re: “The Skinny

What, Again. Parents have always had a choice of where to send their kids. Now the rich parents will get to be subsidized when they send their kids to a private school. I thought you were against using tax dollars to underwrite private ventures.

Re: “The Skinny

Three things I already knew, but the Tucson Weekly confirms over and over again:

First, Governor Ducey and his gang in Phoenix are lying, conniving elitist who will continue to steal from the land and the people by any means necessary to ensure their own positions and to guarantee that future generations are denied an education, a political voice and the natural resources that belong to all the people.

Second, elections in Arizona have been fixed so long that having them only demonstrates how long this has been going on. All you have to do is figure out the way the powers to be want it to go and surprise! The election will go that way, but it will always be by a "close" margin as a concession to EVERYONE that opposed it.

Lastly, feeding the trolls only results in more trolling. My grandfather used to say, "Never wrestle with a pig -- you both get dirty and the pig likes it."

Re: “The Skinny

Seems like its time for a Citizens Initiative on education, i.e. no tax dollars for private schools, at all. Let the free market determine which private diploma mills survive or not.

Re: “The Skinny

It's not a choice to kill the unborn.

It's a choice between a woman and her doctor.

Although I do understand why you get so worked up about it.

It's because you're a trolling moron.

Get the fuck out of here.

You are so unwelcome.

Re: “The Skinny

How dare parents be allowed the choice of where to educate their children. Don't they know that being pro-choice only means the right to kill the unborn.
