Raul Grijalva is not supporting the emerging debt deal cutting Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid

cropped-TSON.jpg

If you agree with our progressive US Congressman Raul Grijalva then you can join me in signing his petition to show your opposition to the emerging debt deal if it cuts Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Grijalva’s message is below. P.S. And for the record, Grijalva and progressives are not voicing opposition just for the sake of it. They have proposed their own budget that even The Economist praised as a solution. Message from Raul Grijalva, July 31, 2011. When a crisis faces our nation, and decisions have to be made, we look to our elected officials to provide the […]

Meth: Is there a method to the madness regarding drug policies?

cropped-TSON.jpg

Once again the Arizona Daily Star has an interesting Sunday paper filled with deep issues, and there are interconnections between 4 different top stories that I will put together here. The first one deals with “corporate meth” which is stronger and cheaper than ever. Corporate meth has arrived in Tucson. This high-end, extremely pure, extremely potent speed is manufactured by organizations with the knowledge to craft a superior product and the distribution networks to get it into the hands of customers worldwide. It is purer and more potent than ever. It isn’t the meth of a few years back, the […]

How to make money for you and your friends using the debt crisis: Paul Gosar and the Boehner compromise

cropped-TSON.jpg

Arizona’s newest US Congressman, Paul Gosar, provides an example of TEA hypocrisy, or rather “Teeth” hypocrisy. Yes I’m giving the punchline away, but you can see how it all works in hindsight. Gosar has decided to endorse the huge Boehner package to avoid government shutdown come August, but only after Gosar “helped push Boehner to revise his bill…” I wonder what revision he would make? Gosar said he and other conservative freshmen earlier helped push Boehner to revise his bill to reduce the deficit by an additional $66 billion. That version of the bill would cut the deficit by $917 […]

Why is there low MAS enrollment for next year and is TUSD admin to blame?

cropped-TSON.jpg

It’s amazing how untruths get out there. Consider the following chain of events. The MAS program has been put under the supervision of Dr. Garcia, someone who is known to hate the courses and wants them gone even as she admits she known very little about them (see video above). Side note: Why did Pedicone put such an unqualified and known hater of the program in charge of supervising it? The asst. superintendent of high schools forbids any recruitment of students into MAS courses. This is significant for the following reason. The top administration made up of asst. supes Drs. […]

VIDEO: SB1070 – one year ago today

cropped-TSON.jpg

One year ago, after watching the 10 o’clock news, I went to my computer and started making the following video and finished around 4 in the morning of July 29th, 2010. The video below is especially relevant today, as it deals with the people behind SB1070, the known hate group known as FAIR which actually wrote the bill, and the Tanton network they are a part of, and how the plan was to use Arizona as a testing ground and then spread this legislature to other states. A few days later I made the following video about Tucson’s reaction to […]

White privilege and democracy in America?

cropped-TSON.jpg

Due to the Christian nature of many of those in power, the Founding Fathers are sometimes put on a pedestal along with the Apostles of Jesus. What’s the difference between 200 and 2,000 years ago? It’s all in the past somewhere and people dressed differently and sometimes walked with dinosaurs. Not only are the Founding Fathers made to look like Apostles, sometimes the Apostles from the area of Palestine and the Middle East are made to look like Founding Fathers with lighter complexions. Jesus Christ in the “Passion of the Christ” was played by an Italian even though he and […]

Time for TUSD to use Prop 402 to start selling off public schools to charters and churches?

cropped-TSON.jpg

TUSD is having a back to school sale, emphasis on “school sale.” Once again the Arizona Daily Star has one of those articles where at least two huge topics are merged together, leaving only the surface scratched, but given the tone of the article I have to give Ms. Huicochea some credit from expressing even if just a little bit of the frustration felt by many in that board room. The TUSD Governing Board gave approval Tuesday night for the district to proceed with negotiations for the sale or lease of six closed schools. Negotiations will proceed for Jefferson Park, […]

Dr. Jeff Duncan-Andrade speech from the Transformative Education conference in Tucson last Saturday

cropped-TSON.jpg

Dr. Jeff Duncan-Andrade spoke last Saturday at the Transformative Education conference which was not sponsored by TUSD this year. Instead it was put together by Augustine Romero who deserves credit for the huge task of organizing this event in a short amount of time. The conference did not disappoint, especially with the last keynote speaker Jeff Duncan-Andrade from San Francisco State University but who also teaches in an East Oakland high school, becoming one of the few members of academia that is not isolated from the community they should be serving. The audio of Jeff’s talk is playable below. Jeff […]
