Re: “Ducey, Republicans Leave $56 Million For Child Care Sitting On the Table

#1 if you're an objective journalist, referring to legislators as "cronies" or other negative language indicates strong bias. If this article is the equivalent of comedy central or the Limbaugh show, it doesn't matter but it seems you make an effort to inform not indoctrinate.
#2 if you have a question about legislation, and call two sources who are on the same side of the issue, you haven't made an attempt to get both sides of the story. Certainly Republicans must have had a reason, even if it was a bad one. Maybe I missed where you called Ducey's office. Edit, I see you took the quote from the Star in comment .

I'd think if it was no-strings-attached free money they would've taken it even though they're philosophically opposed for the same reason I am: it's not my job to raise other people's children.

Re: “Experts Discuss the Past and Future of Family Separations at the Border

Sounds like a great idea. As long as the alternative is not the old "catch and release" policy.

Re: “Claytoon of the Day: Living Pura Vida

Where do you get you information, facebook?
In 2016 the U.S. accepted 85,000. In 2017 54,000. The U.S. accepts far more refugees and other migrants than any other country.
Our population is exploding and infrastructure crumbling due to accepting 1.5 million immigrants, mostly poor, for the past few decades. It's not the U.S.'s and Europe's responsibility to deal with all the problems of the rest of the world.

Re: “DACA Still in Limbo

Where was the judge when Obama started DACA illegally? Judges should interpret laws, not create them.

Re: “I Have To Admit, I Don't Understand the Popularity Of Virtual Schools

Here are some reasons for your consideration

1. School model of 7 hours per day of sitting is not developmentally appropriate to many children, especially boys
2. School model of teaching via authority/punishment/reward model is not great for many (really any) children.
3. Social/discipline problems found at most schools not good for many children
4. Secular model not preferred for religious families

Virtual schools provide an alternative for lower income parents who can't afford private school and want more parental control over their children's development and can't find it in the public school system.

Re: “LeBron James' Wrap-Around School

Maybe he can build enough to educate the children of the 1.5 million mostly poor and uneducated immigrants the U.S. will allow in every year for the foreseeable future.
