Re: “Sheriff Mark Napier Says His Deputies Won't Be Taking Over the Work of Border Patrol

When (undocumented) victims of crime report crimes, do they not provide personal information, address, and residency status? If these people are undocumented, does it mean they are here illegally? And if illegal, is that what the Sheriff is claiming to ignore, or cherry-pick what laws he will enforce?

Re: “Thoughts on the Sanchez Resignation and the Next Steps for TUSD

If Sanchez was forced to leave for performing poorly, who was responsible for hiring him in the "first place" ??? And the others? And the Others, and others? There's the problem. Even the search committees and costly consultants cant get it right?


. In 2014, during Superintend SANCHEZ One Year Tenure

. WHAT 2014 TUSD CURRICULUM AUDITORS REPORTED
(http://tusd1.org/contents/Documents/curric…)

TUSD DISTRICT-WIDE and school-based planning was not of sufficient quality to lead the district toward the achievement of intended goals. TUSDs planning process was found to have the minimum characteristics of quality planning.

. INADEQUATE PROGRAM(S) EFFECTIVENESS ASSESSMENT

TUSD DISTRICTS FINANCIAL DECISION MAKING
and budget development and are not driven by curricular goals, strategic priorities.

STRATEGIC PRIORITIES, ASSESSMENT DATA, AND ALLOCATIONS
are structured in a manner that PREVENTS MEASUREMENT of the cost-effectiveness of program activities and services.

. INADEQUATE POLICY FRAMEWORK
. INADEQUATE ORGANIZATIONAL STRUCTURE
. INADEQUATE CURRICULUM MANAGEMENT
. INADEQUATE WRITTEN CURRICULUM
. INADEQUATE POLICIES, RULES, AND REGULATIONS
. INADEQUATE PLANNING PROCESS
. NADEQUATE PROGRAM(S) EFFECTIVENESS ASSESSMENT
. INADEQUATE COLLEGE AND CAREER READINESS

If the auditor got it right, ask them to recommend the next Supe.

Re: “Out Of the Mouths Of Conservatives

Posted by The problem is much broader than talk radio post says it all Safier -- "As for Safier's closing assertion in this piece that "I have to try and keep my ears and mind open to what they have to say [...] they deserve a fair hearing, if for no other reason than they can help me understand some of the flaws in my own thinking," it sounds good, but I'll believe it when I see it. There's been very little in what I've read of his blogging to date that suggests that he's capable of it."

Can a Leopard change it's spots? Can a cat bark? Can the East meet the West?

Re: “T.H.R.E.A.T. Watch: 'I Threatened and Insulted You, So You Owe Me an Apology.'

It really is pitiful what this Safier chooses to spend time commenting on. There are real threats to the well-being of many of our citizens. What threats Safier? The response was about harassment toward Pence invading a private moment -- there was no issue of race -- simply harassment and bad taste.

That is purposefully invoked by you Safier to create a racial issue when there was none. What are you up to Safier, following the brain-dead left-wing ding-bat/socialist/communist operative manual?

Re: “"Have You No Sense of Decency?"

Have You No Sense of Decency?

THE SHAME IS UPON YOU SAFIER, that you have lived so long and stuck at such a level of ignorance, or is it arrested development?

MCCARTHY WAS A PATRIOT purging communist enemies from our country, or did you not know that?

I PERSONALLY was involved in a small way in developing missile systems to destroy Communist Russia – the communist treat WAS REAL.

TODAY THE MUSLIM THREAT is even greater than the communists were then, they are actual doing a lot of killing, or haven’t you noticed?

AT LEAST THE COMMUNISTS VALUED LIFE, so mutual destruction was not an option, not so with Muslims.

MUSLIMS DO NOT VALUE HUMAN LIFE, nor does their religion permit dente.

TELL ME SAFIER why Trump champions purging these barbarian’s, whose religion command the destruction of the US ….

………… LACKS A SENSE OF DECENCY???

…….. What la la land are you living in???????

TELL ME SAFIER, what are you? A communist? Radical Left? Muslim Sympathizer? Or simply a disconnected wordsmith spewing meaningless words.

Re: “Bill (and Hillary) Clinton's For-Profit College Problem

The considerable research on Laureate Education is impressive, not withstanding that such enterprise, though in need of oversight, is an excellent prod to public education to get its act together. A rush to charters is good medicine for the sickly job, particularly TUSD, has/is doing for its students. To invoke"anything for the buck" is hypocritical since it appears all you do is go after that "buck." Ciro

Re: “Grijalva: Supreme Court's 'Non-Decision' on Immigration Executive Actions Leaves Vulnerable People Suffering

Open letter to Grijalva, a communist --

You say --
…. “Illegals in US suffering under US Toxic legal system”
…. “We are a nation of immigrants and a nation of laws,
…. “US immigration system splinters families, and betrays
…. our values

WE say --

• If our legal systems is so toxic, why are illegals in a death grip insisting on staying here? What suffering?
• YES, we are a nation of “Legal” immigrants. What is it you do not understand about “illegal”?
• Our immigration system does not splinter families –
ILLEGALS DO!!! –

……...WHO IS DUMPING CHILDREN AT OR BORDERS
…….. AND RUNNING?? ……….

• “Betrays our values”? – Since when do Americans share “communist” values?
• Since when do Americans use their children to become citizens of another country?

Grijalva you can feed that bull-shit to your communist constituents, but your bull-shit only reinforces why you and your illegals are discriminated against.

AN ILLEGAL IS AN ILLEGAL, is an illegal – what is it about that you don’t understand Grijalva? Or don’t “our” laws mean anything to you and your “illegals”?
