Re: “T.H.R.E.A.T. Watch: Normalizing 'White Nationalism' Down to 'Nationalism'

White supremacists spit in the face of our WW2 veterans and all true Americans. Trump is their new messiah, their new fuerher. CW13, What, Again and Dan Hyde are just the apologists and prevaricators and enablers that the KKK and the white supremacists have always depended upon to convince good people to ignore their calls to violence. Nice work, guys. Your parents must be so proud. You represent the most callous, cruel and ultimately unpatriotic behavior that my Republican family decried. Stand up like men and declare that you despise these white supremacists, or shut up and slink into the shadows where cowards hide. You shame the American principles and the values that real men and women fought and died for.

Re: “Ducey 'Next Step' Watch: Day 123: "Changing the Trend Line" Edition

#publicschoolsfirst A good man sums up Dark Money Ducey's "plan" for our public schools. A good man points out the lies of the greedy and the rich. We often seem uncomfortable talking about raw power. We don't like the discussion of greed. That's why we are here. Public education is being choked to death by those that have power. At the root of this strangulation, is greed.
If your candidate won't agree to fund our public schools immediately with at least $1.7 billion in additional funding ( which barely restores public school funding to 2007 levels, adjusted for inflation), tell them that you cannot vote for them. They have just told you that they side with the powerful and the greedy. They don't give a damn about the opportunirties denied to the poor and working families. These are our tax dollars, and our children. Step up to your responsibility to elect candidates that put them first.

Re: “Zona Politics: Your Primary Election Round-Up!

Thank you, Mr. Nintzel, for this show. We need to know as much as possible about the candidates in this important election.

Victoria Steele knows and cares deeply about the needs and values of working families,seniors and the poor in our CD2.

Martha McSally is a professional politician that is indebted to big money donors, out of state corporations and the Trump Machine--- her millions of dollars are raised from people that don't live here.

Victoria Steele has the governing experience and the values that are our values---she fights for the our interests in a way that McSally never has. Victoria has proved her loyalty to us. McSally has proven her loyalty to big money.

Re: “Want To Be a Top High School? Better Not Have Too Many Low Income Students.

Dear "Break the Shackles, etc": your position is tellingly disingenuous. The discussion is centered squarely on the factors of economic disadvantage and the attendant impediments to academic success. Vouchers are in no way under discussion, poses a fatuous and distressing distraction to the discussion, and becomes a red herring.

As to your odd allusion to racist language, re: " ...the plantation.", and your bizarre " Break the Shackles" signature, perhaps your dog-whistle to your fellow KKK brothers should be made more explicitly. Please don't be a coward on this forum. Call these poor, economically disadvantaged students by their rightful names: American citizens.

Re: “NAACP Calls For a Moratorium on Charter Schools

Thank you, Mr. Safier: for-profit and privately managed charters too often hide behind the stories of legitimate, open and honestly elected boards. The shysters, led by greedy, sanctimonious grifter millionaires like Steve Yarbrough, Debbie Leasko and Sylvia Allen love to confuse the public with shady stories of "charter successes", which they use to dishonestly paint with a broad brush, a narrative of school-choice triumphs. They are liars. What they detest is open democracy and public oversight of tax dollars.

Re: “"Have You No Sense of Decency?"

Mr. Verdi: McCarthy was a coward, a fear-monger. We do not countenance fear-mongers and religious bigots here. It is, quite simply, un-American.

Re: “"Have You No Sense of Decency?"

The new leader of GOP is a coward, a loser. He calls for torture and murder of anyone, and their families, that he suspects of terrorism. As un-American as is possible. A grifter, a con man working the biggest swindle of his career.

Thank you, Mr. Safier.
