Re: “Interview With TUSD Board Member Leila Counts

Too bad the interviewer didn't say what Family Life curriculum is. Never heard of it.
She sounds like she's doing a fine job.

Re: “Sahuarita Pecan Festival Cancelled, FICO Blames Global Tariffs

Bah, insurance companies blamed Obama-care when they jacked up rates and canceled policies after it passed. Turns out, that was just a convenient scapegoat for something they'd done for years.
I don't believe FICO anymore than I believe Aetna or Blue Cross.

Re: “Danehy

Another ignorant and unfocused anti-Trump and anti-gun screed for the masses. What about the Bernie fan that shot up the Republicans at the softball game. Was it all of Bernie's hate speech that caused it? And the guy in Dayton was an Elizabeth Warren fan. What about all of the mass shootings during the Obama presidency? Was it Obama's divisive and racist rhetoric? Your argument is full of holes.
Also the British infantry of the Revolutionary era could load a musket in 20 seconds and fire with deadly accuracy at 50-100 yards. At least get your facts straight.

Re: “Danehy

"There is very little for Trump supporters to cheer about" - other than

the best economy in decades
record low unemployment, especially minorities
we are at peace
the first decent pay increases for the working class in 30 years
Crazy Koch-brothers-financed mass-immigration policies finally getting the attention they deserve
Opiate crisis being addressed
Landmark criminal justice reform passed (stuff Dems have rightly supported for years)
Unfair China trade policies finally being looked at
Stock market at record highs

Other than that, not much good, I agree. My party has left me. Questioning how I can vote for any Democrat nominee after voting Democrat my entire life.

Re: “Man Arrested for Damaging, Stealing Water Tanks Left For Migrants

Aiding illegal activities is somehow not a crime, but thwarting it is. It's an upside down world we live in.

Re: “A Border Patrol Agent Reveals What It’s Really Like to Guard Migrant Children

We need to fix our asylum system so economic migrants don't come expecting asylum. The worst part is that they know that if they bring their children on the journey, it's a free pass into the country.
Next we need to work on economic development and empowerment of poor people, especially women.
Continuing to accept economic migrants without limit is not good for either the donor country or the recipient country. The donor country loses the people most likely and capable to affect change. The recipient country gets all the problems of overpopulation and low wages associated with high immigration rates.
