ps - I ran into Vern at Sprouts Market 4 or 5 years ago (right before he had his stroke) along with my father-in-law (who knew Verne 40 years ago), and the coach still remembered him. He was a high quality person.

Hey, let's give John Hupp some credit. At least this time he has the huevos to post comments under his real name. I'd say that's progress. He went from middle school level behavior almost to adult behavior. KUDOS John!!!

Re: “Jogger Plans Half-Day Run To Support No More Deaths

Added to that is fact that many of these illegal entrants have invested large sums of money to be brought here.

It went almost totally unreported but Canada has found itself in a major cash crunch partly because of extremely high levels of personal debt, but their banks have had their financial strength downgraded by Moody's.

So this is what consumers do that don't have to buy health insurance, or are they over taxed?

Re: “The Skinny

Palisades are you saying that Congress is supporting Trump's agenda? Or did you mean until the next election after '18?

Re: “Pleasantly Punjab

My wife & I's favorite Indian restaurant, hands down. You did make 2 errors in your review. Mukhtiar Singh owns the "Flavor of India".( and Gandhi's, if I'm not mistaken). Harjinder is related to Mukhtiar. And "Gandhi's" is located at FT Lowell & Stone ( NWcorner) NOT Prince & Stone. Let's not have people getting lost looking for this fine restaurant !!

Re: “Jogger Plans Half-Day Run To Support No More Deaths

I am tired of people waving the bloody shirt of the holocaust at the United States in an effort to undermine U.S. sovereignty and persuade the United States that we are obligated to take every immigrant on Earth who would like to live here. We aren't. No one is rounding up people from El Salvador or Oaxaca and putting them into death camps. These people immigrate for lifestyle, not survival. And this tactic seems hypocritcal to me when it comes from Jewish people, in view of the fact that Israel maintains draconian border security measures and strict immigration controls in order to prevent itself from becoming non-Jewish. And I've got no problem with that. I support Jews in their desire for a secure homeland. But I expect them to return the courtesy.

Tom Tronsdal is selectively campaigning. He's the one Democratic candidate who has not showed up on our doorstep. Guess he's canvassing higher-end 'hoods instead of working class streets.

Re: “A Few Thoughts On the Mexican American Studies Trial

Response

Evidence and logic. The most important public policy number in the universe is the maximum possible speed of improvement for students from poverty.

If as you imply, we are there, then our current system is morally defensible and we should all protect it dearly. However, even a casual glance at the data reveals that we are nowhere close to living up to these students potential.

That makes our existing education system horribly racist - just a fact, just a purely logical conclusion.

And, its getting worse, not better. The productivity of the American k-12 education system has fallen 15% since the year 2000, 5% just since 2011.

Re: “The Skinny

There is going to be a "cake walk" if you will for seats once McCain makes his retirement plans. Long dollars say McSally could be moved to his seat, but Kelli Ward is making a lot of noise for it. Ducey says he won't name himself. If he moves McSally her seat would then be another appointment of a southern Arizonan, of which there are numerous possibilities.

It would be fun to start a list, before Jim Click does. God rest his soul Emil Franzi would have been fun in that position. Anybody seen Roy Laos lately?

Re: “A Few Thoughts On the Mexican American Studies Trial

David, thanks for the thoughtful reply.

I disagree with your foundational premise. A white child born in 2003 (i.e., a High School freshman today) has not been brought up in an educational system (or a society) that sustains white supremacy, or that even permits any positive expression of white identity. Quite the opposite.

But we don't have to agree on this.

My hypothetical AAS program would not be based on the milquetoast, IMPLICITLY pro-white narrative present in U.S. education prior to, say, the 1990s. It would be EXPLICITLY pro-white. One of its goals would be to encourage the formation of a positive white identity among its students.

And my point is just that we would never permit such a thing, even if it managed to create significantly improved educational outcomes among poor and otherwise disadvantaged white students. One of the reasons we would never permit it is because is because encouraging ethnic chauvinism is bad for social cohesion.

Re: “A Few Thoughts On the Mexican American Studies Trial

Nathan K, you've posed an interesting thought experiment. One problem with it is, your laboratory in the classroom is isolated from the rest of society. It doesn't take into account that this country's culture overwhelmingly presents the world from a white perspective. A "White Studies" program which overstated the white dominance argument would be reinforcing what people have heard in this country since its inception. We've made some advances toward multiculturalism in recent years, but they're small, early steps which don't nearly counterbalance the Eurocentric narrative. "White studies" -- in other words, the traditional curriculum, possibly exaggerated from what it is today -- would be compounding the historical and cultural misconceptions which permeate our society.

So let's pose your thought experiment again, adding a new wrinkle. If whites were the oppressed minority in this country and people of color were the winners who wrote the histories and dominated the national narrative, if society taught whites that they were inferior, that they deserved their place at the bottom of the socioeconomic heap, would it make sense to have a "White studies" program, even if it sometimes went overboard and overstated the value and importance of white contributions to society and dwelled on the injustices visited on white students, their parents and their ancestors? Would it be a needed counterbalance to the nationwide oppression of whites -- in this version of your thought experiment -- an attempt to correct the record and turn white children's sense of inferiority into a feeling of empowerment?

"During World War II, some of Schuster's Jewish great aunts and uncles died in Auschwitz. He said he sees parallel treatment of immigrants today."

Reminder - Israel has a massive wall to keep out illegal immigrants, and has accepted no Muslim war refugees for permanent resettlement.

Re: “The Skinny

The 'carpetbagger' accusations are fair. She is chasing a political career and CD-2 will only be a stepping stone, she and McSally have that in common. If she wins, she will skip town in a few years to run for the Senate again. In truth, she should reconsider her move to Tucson and should look seriously at a run for the Senate in 2018, it is her best shot with both seats potentially being open. Anne is not right for Tucson. I don't know which candidate is but at this point she has the most to prove and overcome.

Re: “Ask a Mexican!

The problem with "The Mexican" is his inability to separate his Left Wing bias from his (presumed) nationality.

His he a "Mexican" (born in Mexico) and a citizen of Mexico? If so he represents a minority viewpoint.

Is he an "American" born in America who believes he is a "Chicano"? If so he is simply a "left winger," as the majority of Americans of Hispanic descent (and former Mexican citizens who immigrated HERE lawfully) do NOT share his "open borders" viewpoint.

As for land: what WAS formerly Mexico, is NOW America, paid for with blood and treasure. ALL land in EVERY country around the world was at one time paid for with blood and treasure.

Get used to it, Chico!
