"Have you seen the 9/11 memorial in Gilbert? It's nice, nice, nice! Well, I'm proud of Mesa, where we have 190 park benches downtown and are getting heat strips poured along all SRP canals."

"The problem with eliminating tax loopholes, subsidies, reclassifying fund manager's income and depreciation on corporate jets (just to list a few) is that Congress will look at this as ‘new' money and spend it not on lowering the national debt but on their pet projects to get themselves re-elected."

"Many of us were delighted to read Linda Turley-Hansen's commentary on Sept. 11. She always tells it like it is. How anybody, no matter how liberal they are, can still think Obama is right for the office of president of this country is past belief. Remember Cuba didn't think Castro was dangerous either. Thank you Linda!"

"The federal government was unable to properly oversee one loan when Solyndra's own accountants were telling them the company was on the verge of failure. How do they expect to oversee thousands of loans through the Dodd-Frank Act? Most of the supposed Wall Street reform portion of Dodd Frank is redundant anyway. Repeal it now. All it does is require lenders take the money they have to loan and redirect it pay for additional compliance personnel."

"For your information, Wednesday Venter, Paul Simon and James Taylor are musical legends who will continue to influence and inspire musicians and artists long after their days on this earth are over. Paul Simon - New York native son - gave the most deeply moving rendition of ‘Sounds of Silence' ever, and brought the entire 9/11 Remembrance to its most poignant moment ... no small feat for such a profoundly emotional ceremony."
