I have stopped communicating with people whose vocabulary is limited to four letter words. The hateful homophobic rants diminish this publication, and stifle discussion.

Re: “How's the New 'Anyone Can Teach in Arizona' Law Working Out So Far?

Education is basically a thorn in the sides of most Republicans because their opinions matter more than science or mathematics. If the curriculum for Arizona schools was based strictly on biblical principles the legislature would be pouring money into the teaching profession like it was manna from heaven. The students wouldn't learn anything but the legislature could defend their position by saying they are doing everything they can to make education in Arizona worthwhile.

Re: “Cinema Clips: War Machine

your movie judgement shows a lack of education and experience of how the upper echelon of the american military performs since Dubya. Do some more homework and maybe the intention of this movie will be more apparent.

And while Minneapolis is still a coked up city, there's now plenty of smack and oxycontin to fuel up against the winter's cold, and nod through the humidity of summer. Great read, the dried up memories of coping at 14th and Portland, the Minneapple's redheaded stepchild to 53rd and 3rd now coursing through my brain like a million other schemes routed through my time doing heroin, just like Johnny and Alex. You can't put your arms around a memory indeed!!!

Re: “Danehy

Danehy shows a picture of Asimov to imply that Danehy too is a "thinker."

But Danehy thinks not.

Danehy is merely an unapologetic, left wing partisan, steeped in left wing propaganda, so he frames his world view as one.

Danehy believes anyone who didn't vote for Hillary is a "stupid racist" who doesn't know what's good for them.

Guess what? Trump was NOT elected by "RACIST" Americans.

TRUMP was elected by the much abused, hard working, class of forgotten Americans, including LABOR, who now has to compete with an endless supply of Illegal Labor from south of the border.

Left Wing policies have FAILED!

Open Border policy is DEAD!

Behold the rise of Americans with "Common Sense!"

Re: “Over Stepping Bounds

There seems to be some confusion over whether " NO ONE in the U.S. Border Patrol can legally give anyone "permission" to operate contrary to the law" or not.

Why was a Border Patrol Agent transporting 110 lbs of cocaine in his rental car trunk to Chicago?
See: http://nypost.com/2015/11/24/cops-find-110-pounds-of-cocaine-in-us-border-patrol-agents-car/

Why did the former DHS Inspector General, Tomshek (previously a 23 yr. veteran of the Secret Service) stated in a an interview that between 5 and 10 percent of border agents and officers are actively corrupt or were at some point in their career".

see: https://www.revealnews.org/article-legacy/ousted-chief-accuses-border-agency-of-shooting-cover-ups-corruption/

Why were the 43 College student protestors from Ayotzinapa Guerero disappeared, some from a school bus after it was riddled with bullets by the Mexican Army and Fed. Police; a school bus that has been reported to have previously traveled to Chicago without students; a bus that passed through US CBP twice? What kind of business is there between Guerrero and Chicago? One report linked it to the kind of business that transports the same white substance in the trunk of the BP officer.
(see: http://www.univision.com/noticias/noticias-de-mexico/revelan-que-policia-federal-y-ejercito-participaron-en-ataque-contra-alumnos-de-ayotzinapa).

Is that part of the law you speak of, or is that part of " some highly-questionable unsigned written agreement" . The students were shot while in the bus with machine guns in the hands of Fed. Mexican police and Army, rrportedly to protect a Cartel's goods. I don't think there is anything "warm and fuzzy" about why those murders happened, do you? But read on, if this appears unrelated . . . .

Immigrants principally leave Guatemala, Honduras, and Southern Mexico because they are pushed off their land by agricultural plantations ensured by NAFTA and CAFTA, because as their rural economies then collapse the drug Cartels move in, and because free trade has guaranteed weak , small , ineffectual governments there (keep tuned into that), they also want to join their family here who worked in places largely (but not completely) eschewed by us. 75% of all farm labor in the US is Mexican (Dept. of Labor 2005). And yes I come from a farm state.

And by the way, an aid station was set up in Nogales in Sonora, Mexico at the border, and it was received well by local Mexican authorities. There is no "thrill" in seeing a beat down immigrant, many who tell of loosing a companion to death in the desert. Many receive food and medical aid every day in Nogales, Sonora, Mexico, by volunteers, people not paid.

Those who favor those policies in Central American and Mexico, the cause of migration, also often support the security and detention industries, or the remedy, here at home. Are you one of them?

Curious that. We once had agricultural laws that operated like those in Central American and Mexico. When small farmers were used for labor and they completed their contracts in the South, but usury fees and bank indebtedness "freed up their land", and dispossessed them as the large agricultural estates (former plantations), then bought them for a pittance. That is a form of a cartel. Most of those workers migrated (there is that " illegal" word again) to the north.

In Guatemala and Honduras, when agricultural workers finish their contract, if they try to stay on productive land in order to grow crops to live, the police are called, the dogs are set loose, and the "law" is applied there.

Here those laws were equally legislated sometime ago, Jim Crow.

Re: “Danehy

Republicans will have a built in advantage for so long as Democrats continue to mistake ideological disagreement for ignorance. I understand why they do it. It's comforting. It assures them they are the virtuous, all-knowing Cloud People who could build a utopia if not for these Dirt People who just haven't taken enough sociology courses at an elite coastal universities to know what is best for them. The nice thing (for my side) about this reaction, is that prevents the Democrats from engaging in any introspection, or asking the tough questions about why they lost. Self-reflection is uncomfortable. Far easier just to call the people who disagree with you "stupid."

Politics in 2016 is now about identity - to which tribe to you belong? - than it is about knowledge. You see, if only college educated whites had voted in the 2016 election, Trump's margin of victory would have been bigger. And Danehy knows that. The lecture he delivers to the working class, rust belt whites in this piece - do you think he would give that speech in inner city Baltimore? Would he drive out to Sells, and tell everyone, "you people just need to study math! Pull yerselfs up by yer bootstraps like mi papi did!" Of course not. Those people are on Danehy's team, so they're worthy of his sympathy; rust belt whites aren't, so they're not. In the end, it's not about knowledge or ignorance for Danehy either - it's about who are your people, and who aren't.

Re: “How's the New 'Anyone Can Teach in Arizona' Law Working Out So Far?

The average teacher salary in Arizona is $47,000 per year. The shortage salary is $32,000 per year. There wouldn't be any shortage of teachers at all if you could open that average salary up. However, the legislature can only change the average salary. It can't change the shortage salary at all, only the districts can do that.

Paradoxically, it is quite possible that an increase in the average salary would result in a reduction of the shortage salary. Systems do that when rewarded for certain behaviors.

Re: “Danehy

It is hard to believe after all the Trump administration has accomplished and all the #MAGA moves they are making that there are still people out there that hate our President. Obviously Danehy must feed bile to his followers even though that universe is rapidly shrinking. Knowledgeable folks are looking past Trump's many, superficial flaws and realizing what an asset it is to have a businessman's focus in the White House.
