Re: “Arizona Republicans Are All In For "Education Reform." Charter School Reform? Not So Much.

Student success is difficult to hide. No reason for transparency when competition winners make the newspaper. TUSD once did a good job of teaching Mathematics, but for at least the last two years not a single TUSD Middle School produced any top Math students. They all came from charter, parochial or private schools or southern Arizona schools in other districts: https://tucson.com/news/local/education-no… The cost for educating these students is often much lower than the public school average.

Nationwide academic competition winners are sometimes home-schooled students whose parents are very eager to show transparency. For zero taxpayer dollars & family incomes often lower than local teachers' salaries home-schoolers are getting the best educations & are being eagerly sought by elite colleges. Something is wrong with the "more money" argument when the best educated students - not just in Arizona, but across the country - have the least expensive educations.

Re: “Danehy

My son's dog is my granddaughter. Don't let it bother you. Many animal owners are better parents than mothers & fathers of actual biological babies.

I'll still vote for her over the others, but completely agree with you on McSally's "Trump cozying". Sad.

Has there EVER been a local news station that didn't hire Ted Baxter wannabes? Even former "Educational Television" KUAZ has reporters who admit they grew up ignorant & will therefore continue to misinform their audience. I was at least pleased to see KVOA's Stephanie Weaver work on improving her pronunciation. Any attempt like that is unique in local TV news.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Democratic Socialism

- G George: Many intelligent Swedes, Norwegians, Danes, & especially Venezuelans who've experienced Socialism would make similar statements. For decades a hard-working minority who pay 80 - 85 % of their income in taxes have opposed Socialism. Recently the supporters are dropping fast, and opponents are doubling, partly because of crime & immigration.

I'm not a poor idiot; I'm a poor Conservative who lived in Sweden for two years. Opposition to Socialism has less to do with a "vote for the rich" than it has to do with a work ethic & the unfortunate lack of personal responsibility among those other clueless fools who want "free stuff". Anybody anywhere for the last century who has studied Socialism knows that it usually fails.

"The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people's money." - Margaret Thatcher

Re: “Politico: Democrats Once Again Think They Can Win Statewide in Arizona

Good question bslap.

Democrats have tried to convince Latinos (& blacks, women, immigrants, & other minorities) that they're stupid, helpless, irresponsible victims who can't think for themselves & need the government to take care of them. Huge numbers of intelligent Hispanics in Arizona are Conservative. So are women & other minorities who are fed up with politicians treating them as if they're lazy, stupid, helpless fools.

Garcia mentioned "older Latinos who worked so hard for decades to integrate into American society."
Many have successfully done exactly that, & don't fall for Democrat brainwashing & identity politics.

"8 Great Things to do in Tucson Today: Monday, June 25"

Good of you to publish lists of things to do, but a couple of the events are nowhere near Tucson.

Re: “After Her Immigration Bill Fails, McSally Crows That It "Nearly" Passed

McSally's optimistic statements were more realistic than all the headlines that called a 7-2 vote by the Supreme Court a "narrow decision" in the Masterpiece Cakeshop case.
