“On my way to the store on Tuesday I thought I would stop at the polls and vote. I have voted many times over the years, but for the first time I couldn’t think of any candidate honorable enough to stand in line for.”

“Obama apologists sound an awful lot like my grandmother when she was defending Nixon. Her claim was it was just the Washington Post out to get him. Now it’s the Democrats saying the same thing about Fox News.”

“Perhaps you may write a letter to the editor with the ‘five specific examples’ of our president’s alleged violation of our constitutional rights. What do you mean by ‘numerous media sources’ that report these violations? FOX News? Newsmax? I have certainly never seen these reports in the Tribune, the Republic, or any other news outlet. Just saying that something is so does not make it so. You would most likely fail my daughter’s English composition class for writing unsubstantiated, illogical statements, and I doubt whether you even know what an ad hominem attack is. Apparently, you don’t understand that your shortcomings undermine your credibility. Come on, let’s see your sources to support your new attack that President Obama ‘keeps a list’. He doesn’t strike me as the Santa type, to tell you the truth.”

“State Rep. Russ Jones’ objections to allowing suppressor use for hunting are ridiculous. Does he actually believe for one second that suppressors work in real life like they do in the movies? The decibel level is reduced to the equivalent of a two-stroke motorcycle. When hunting, I definitely know when a motorcycle, or even the more quiet four-stroke quad, is in the area. Let’s protect the ears and health of the hunters when, as in this case, it can be done practically and with complete safety. Remember hunters vote too.”

“Mr. Obama, stop apologizing to our enemies for minor offenses. The Quran burning was necessary. The terrorists would desecrate them to pass secret messages to each other. Apologizing to our enemies only makes you look weak and pathetic.”

“The East Coast liberal media (TV and newspapers) are all up in arms about the New York Police Department Muslim surveillance program. Do these liberals even remember 9/11? Do they remember the names Khalid al-Mihdhar, Nawaf al-Hazmi, Mohamed Atta. All Muslims, all 9/11 hijackers who killed 3,000 innocent Americans. The hijackers weren’t Eskimos, Norwegians or Amazon Indians; they were Muslims. Instead of stopping the surveillance program, every law enforcement agency in America should start one to keep America safe.”


“Washington is now paying attention to Arizona’s SB 1070 immigration law (also known as the Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act). A U.S. Senate Subcommittee on Immigration set April 24, 2012, to look at both the legality and the sense of having state and local governments enforcing immigration law. And starting April 25, 2012, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in the SB 1070 case, a measure which has been partially blocked by a lawsuit brought by the Justice Department.”

“A local real estate broker reports that he helped a Mesa couple sell their house so that they could move to Arkansas. A year or so later they called him. ‘Why didn’t you warn us that Arkansas was a Third World country? Can you help us move back to Arizona?’”

“Dear Arizona general contractors: While you are teaching your crews to rapid-fire a pneumatic nail gun, could you also teach them how to use a tape measure, framing square and a level?”
