"Rep. Weiner wants a leave of absence to go to a treatment facility. I didn't know there was a treatment facility for stupid."

"Is the East Valley Tribune sure that Fred Barlam of Ahwatukee, is not really an alias for Richard K. Meszar of Mesa! The letter in Wednesday's paper, in my opinion, is a dead giveaway."

"It was quite apparent that the NCAA/umpires did not want the ASU baseball team going to Omaha for the College World Series."

"Only in Mesa is it necessary to have the mayor and city council names on a sign, like the Lehi Crossing project. What did this cost us taxpayers? These people don't have a clue!"

"For all you anti-citizen's gun rights people: Look at Bosnia, Syria, Libya, Egypt and Yemen where the governments have or are slaughtering the defenseless citizenry. Tell me that kind of evil does not exist at the highest levels. Ask yourself, could that happen in the U.S.? Look at Iraq and Afghanistan and how our military is struggling and you have your answer."

"We can thank the environmentalist for the fires. They kicked and screamed to save the white owl, and for a short time the owls' home was secure. Now after 16 years of no logging and no clearing the forest floor, we have to ask where the real priority was. Should we now form a group to ‘save the humans?' What about their jobs, their homes, and our forest? Was the white owl really worth it? We will never again see the beautiful forest, for my generation and several to follow; the 100-year-old Ponderosas are gone. Isn't it time we stop this nonsense and bring back logging, and while we're at it, will the Rodeo fire damage ever be cleared? We've been looking at the charred remains for a decade now."
