Re: “A Few Thoughts On the Mexican American Studies Trial

Hey, let's give John Hupp some credit. At least this time he has the huevos to post comments under his real name. I'd say that's progress. He went from middle school level behavior almost to adult behavior. KUDOS John!!!

Re: “Unexpected Revenue Flows Into State Coffers. That's Great News For Education. Right? Right?

It's going to go to business in the way of tax cuts (Ducey ran on that), and as another windfall to the private prison industry, UNLESS we make sure our voices are heard in telling the governor and the legislature that being LAST in education in the country is NOT ACCEPTABLE! You can sit back and hope things change (sigh), or you can DO something about it.

Re: “Arizonans Say, Raise State Taxes to Pay for Education

It is really very simple. The education we give our children today is our economy tomorrow. The fact that the economies of many other states are far surpassing ours is a direct result of the $3 Billion that the Republican dominated legislature has cut from education in Arizona since 2007, in conjunction with continuous cuts to education since 1990. In 1990, Arizona was about in the middle in per pupil funding nationally, today we are 49th. The Morrison poll shows that the majority in this state want to increase educational funding, even if that means an increase in taxes, and that is very positive.

Re: “Ducey Says He Knows Education is Important. Funding? Not So Much.

Ducey is a puppet of the DARK MONEY that got him elected and will be there to suppport him the next time. Make no mistake about it, everything he does is payback to them.

Re: “Some Thoughts on Ducey's School Funding Proposal

Privatization of everything is the goal of the DARK MONEY that Ducey is beholden to. It got him elected, and he knows that if he plays his cards right it will work to get him reelected, or elected to the next office he seeks. So the impetus for selling off state land is nothing more than another part of the DARK MONEY privatization agenda. Throwing in educational funding is nothing more than smoke and mirrors to make it palatable to the masses.

Re: “ACLU of Arizona Wants You to Vote No on a Religious Freedom v. LGBT Phoenix Biz Journal Poll

***Should a Jewish business be required to serve a Nazi? Should a woman be required to rent a room to her rapist? Should a mother be required to do business with some who killed her son?***

Re: “So I Elected an Ax Murderer

If you were surprised by what Ducey did I have a bridge that I would like to sell you in my hometown of Brooklyn NY.
