Re: “Flake Loves Him Some Cruzcare

I had thought of Flake as somewhat moderate until he started touting his A+ ratings from some of America's farthest-right organizations, beginning with the NRA, in his fear of a primary challenge from the wingnut right, aka Kelly Ward for one. Every true independent voter in Arizona better be ready to go to the polls in November 2018, dragging along a lazy Democrat, to vote for whoever wins the Democratic nomination.

Re: “Flake Takes a Turn To the Right

The 'right turn' is nothing new. All year long Flake's messages have been reminding people of his extremely high ratings from such radical right organizations as the NRA. How's this make you think of him?

Sen. Flake's lifetime scores with some of the country's leading government watchdog organizations:

National Taxpayers' Union A
National Right to Life 99%
Americans for Prosperity 98%
Club for Growth 97%
Citizens vs Government Waste 97%
FreedomWorks 95%
American Conservative Union 94%

Re: “Back When Arizonans Cared About Public Education, and Were Willing to Fight For Their Initiative Rights

In the May 2 Star I read that Governor Ducey has heard no concern about Arizona being near the bottom of all states in per-student funding. And his proposed budget, about to be introduced in the legislature, will be a home run for education. Among the devices featured in his plan is $38 million for results-based funding with about 65% of it going to schools doing very well while situated in relatively well-off neighborhoods and districts, with a disproportionate share going to charter schools. This is but one of the dozen or so gimmicks intended to show how well the governor is treating public education while failing to address the critical backlog of capital needs in the schools or the cruel underpayment of the states teachers, to mention just two of the critical issues he prefers not to notice.
I suggest that every reader who has concern about our states inadequate funding for public education contact her legislators, who may listen and hear her concerns while Governor Ducey has made it all too evident that he will not.

Re: “Show Us the Money

Maybe Secretary Reagan would prefer to postpone an improved campaign finance reporting system until after she has run for reelection in 2018.
