“Steve Pierce’s self-serving commentary on taxes and education is enough to make a cat laugh. He has led the charge in strangling funding for education and is yet surprised that Arizona’s students lag those of other states. He touts the absurd notion that withholding support from struggling schools will somehow help them improve. Worse, he worries about higher sales tax rates, when he knows that the cutting of state revenues through tax breaks to his corporate sponsors is precisely what makes an increase in the sales tax necessary.”

“While most observers thought it was pigeon poop on Sheriff Babeau’s car, Sheriff Paul called a news conference to announce that the substance will be forwarded to the MCSO crime lab to determine if it was Cocaine/Anthrax left by the Sinaloa Cartel due to a weak performance by Ms. Napolitano.”

“Come on Arizona, don’t miss the chance to enact a law, where anyone carrying a can of gas in their vehicle, must secure it in a child’s restraining seat. And maybe they can put it on top of the vehicle.”

“How many social programs have to be cut before civilization becomes unsustainable? Greece isn’t the key to economic recovery; it’s the Trojan horse of austerity.”

“Observing Obama with his celebrity backers confirms Democrats live in a world of ‘make-believe’ supported by the rest of the nation who are willing to accept the responsibilities and realities of life.”

“Organized crime, I mean labor, bosses for public employee unions have to be running scared after Wisconsin. The politicians in their pockets had better be scared too. Even Obama stayed away from that fight. Of course when he ran for president in 2008 he promised to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the unions. Yet another broken promise. I lost count.”

“The unfunded debt for public employee pensions carried by federal, state and local governments is almost equal to the total debt of the U.S. Wisconsin spoke loud and clear: Reign it in now!!! The public employee unions should be banned entirely. It’s not like the government is running sweatshops.”

“It matters not where he was born, or from which college he graduated. It matters not what his political affiliation or whose economics he believes. When a man makes jokes about his wife like unto those made by Barack Obama at a recent fundraiser, he shows his true class. Those comments were truly low-brow.”
