Re: “Avatar

Couldn't disagree more with the reviewer expert guys above and below.

This film was better than The Hurt Locker - should've won the Oscar for many reasons.

Right vs. Wrong in a multi-layered world of fantastic images.

Film was creative, fast-moving, absorbing, thoughtful and FUN!

Re: “Danehy: We have to win in November

With Vladimir Putin as his campaign manager and Fox News as Trump's happy place, Trump may indeed win again. If he gets reelected, Putin will win big, but the US economy will crash (as Putin would like), our currency will tank (like, $1.00 = 35cents) and hardworking Americans will suffering 3rd World lives. Trump will lie and distort and blame everyone but himself.

On the other hand, if he loses in a fair contest, Trump will call (again) for a civil war that will flare up around the country. Putin will smile as we burn. Trump is owned and operated by Vladimir Putin.

Re: “McSally officially enters costly, high-profile race to keep Senate seat

Writing an e-mail to McSally's Senate office and getting replies is routine: you get a staff generated list of party line talking points with round-and-round explanations that read like "blah, blah, blah." The replies I have received are command performances in defense of Trump and McConnell. I did additionally ask why Senators even want the job when they are so rarely allowed to vote on anything important to the rest of us - no surprise, no response.

It would also not be surprising if, like former GOP District 2 candidate for Congress (and carpetbagger and banned from Twitter troll) Jesse Kelly, she just up and leaves the state after she loses for a second time.

Re: “SOTU Prebuttal: Trump Hasn't Done Anything To Help Americans With Health Care Issues

If you are unlucky enough to have to stay in (any American) hospital, you will soon realize that you have entered a ringing casino and you are captive. Charges keep mounting as long as you are stuck inside. Good care may be available, but the bottom line costs are in the works minute-by-minute-by-minute. Your own doctor is not even allowed to visit you in there. As for Trump, once again, he is lying out loud thru his shiny capped teeth when he says he has plans for health care improvements, or even more so for your own personal, real-life pre-existing conditions. Republicans in power have NO plans to improve health care. It is still "Don't get sick. If you do get sick, just die quickly."

Five hundred thousand (500,000) Americans declare bankruptcy EVERY YEAR because of outstanding medical bills.

Re: “The Skinny

Political appointee Sen. McSally will never get enough votes by imitating Trump instead of challenging his bizarre behavior with better behavior of her own.

That ship has sailed.

Re: “As Approval Ratings Plunge, McSally Snaps at CNN Reporter

Of all the CNN reporter types, this diminutive man has never stood out as a "hack" as much as a struggling lower level reporter out in the field. His question was routine; McSally's attempt-to-be-bold answer was not, and it got her some headlines.

I wrote to our (only appointed) Senator McSally asking about the exact same issue because I do want to hear from these withheld witnesses, and I do want to read all withheld documents. Don't tell me I am too bored or too stupid to take the time to understand them. As I read through her (staff's) reply, I said to myself, "This is the response of a typical Washington DC Republican political "hack" who wants to obstruct truth, bury facts and make no real commitments at all."

So, from both this reported incident and the response from her office, I truly think McSally is so wishy-washy, so lacking in integrity that she can only shout out from deep within a toxic echo chamber of Republican gerbils that Trump has discovered are his to control, insult, intimidate and discard whenever he wants. Political appointee Sen. McSally will never get enough votes by imitating Trump instead of challenging his bizarre behavior with better behavior of her own.

Re: “Charter Schools: The Good, The Bad and The Costly

Some charters are good, others are not so good, but all seem to have found a basic wellspring of funding. So, "Charter schools spend a lot of 'PUBLIC TAXPAYER' money" in order to operate. Therefore, the salaries of all "executives" from Charter Schools that received public taxpayer funding should be reported in public records somewhere for all to see. Teacher salaries in charters are one thing, but unreported administrative costs that can go right out of our state, are another matter. The money that goes into the pockets of ALL principals, superintendents, CEOs, CFOs, and any/all profit engineers needs sanitized by open books and legal public reporting. Despite all the arguments both good and bad about results, administrative overhead numbers remain secret.

Huppenthal, your comments when in office indicated that you obviously hated public school systems, and your long winded defenses are still accusatory and predictable. You are pure as mud.

Re: “Where Have All The Teachers Gone? (Long Time Passing)

Most people do not go into teaching with retirement in mind - at all. I would challenge anyone who resents a teacher's retirement plan to consider the decades and decades required to get by someday far, far in the future. The challenges (not to mention all the credentials and time required) for this public service have grown dramatically. And despite the demands, the overwhelming majority of working class teachers are really good people who show up every day motivated to do a good job working with other people's kids.
