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."
New To Az, I have never seen Wisconsin's name among the states distinguished by spending the least in the country on public education, so I would not think their experience would be comparable with ours. Also, I would be interested in citations about the benefits for the public schools there--citations by organizations that have to do with education, not budgets. Thanks.
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.
Hey Wrong, Again:
You must feel like a tennis ball.
Because you're getting served left and right.
It's gotta hurt to be wrong all the time.
It is not authentic gelato...sorry
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.
What, Again: I could post just as many headlines about white male US citizens doing the exact same things. People do bad things no matter what country they're from. They also do great, wonderful things. Kathryn's work wasn't about hate, which is all I'm getting from your messages. I choose her message over yours every time.
Yeah, Grijalva's doing it for the environment. Ha, ha, ha. That's a good one.
How come the existing hundreds of miles of border wall didn't "divide and destroy the incredible communities and wild landscapes along the border" Mr. Suckling?
Massive development due to growth from illegal immigration does far more to destroy the environment than some little wall in the desert.
This isn't about the environment.
Nice poem. Three constructive suggestions:
1) "unseen" and "joyously" in the fourth sentence seem redundant.
2) Omit the apostrophe in Catalinas.
3) The poem could be stronger without the last two words.
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.
Raspberries; for Raul the border fence is a open border even with a fence. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOelgf-169w
I guess Trump doesn't know about monsoon rains either. The federal government is going to owe a lot in damages when the wall causes massive flooding.
The disrespect toward Kathryn Ferguson exhibited by some of these comments is disgusting. She is a wonderful author who contributed greatly to humanity.
I wasn't sure about that so I googled it.
Hey, Denise Allen:
Your whole post is one diatribe of ignorance and profound disrespect. You're a phony and a hypocrite.You're also full of shit.
It's never against the law (state, federal, international) to provide humanitarian aide.
You'll be missed Kathy.
What if we have just moved to AZ? Would our children qualify, even though they never attended AZ public schools?
Another way of looking at it is that with the education money spent differently it will improve the economy based on spendable income for all that were paying tuition. This will bring increased sales tax revenues and higher wages.
It isn't all negative. Wisconsin was really surprised what it did for their public schools. It allowed them to get rid of the undesirable teachers, reduced class sizes and improved test results.
RIP Kathryn, your work lives on despite the ignorance of some. Thank you.
