"As an American, I am highly offended when I read that I have to speak a foreign language to get a job in my own country. This country is going to crap!"

"Just a word of advice for our ‘imported' California Hispanic Rights activists and our ‘homegrown' Tucson and South Phoenix La Raza-istas. Don't try burning or desecrating the Bandera (flag) of Mexico, south of the border. It's against Mexican federal law to be disrespectful to a national symbol. The usual jail sentence is 1-3 years (depending on the bribe). In the Mexican prison you would more than likely have a ‘Midnight Express' experience, all your very own."

"A reminder to our GOP friends - Mitt's father (George) had his son sent to France (to complete a Mormon mission), rather than to risk him being sent to Vietnam. Reminds me of George H.W. Bush pulling strings to have little Dubya accepted into the National Guard, whereupon he spent most of his time getting drunk, snorting cocaine, and wrecking cars. Not that Newt was any better, since he avoided the draft and never served. At least Ron Paul was a flight surgeon and, at that time, married with two kids."

"Mitt Romney: The left is ‘riled' over him, the right is ‘mild' over him."

"If you support marijuana prohibition, you support the Mexican drug cartels."

"Thank you Mr. Livdahl for the information you shared Thursday about tax-dodging federal employees. The fact that they routinely get away with what, for the rest of us, would mean the loss of both liberty and property needs pointing out. I don't, however, think that lower ranking members of the military should be held to task for taxes. They are, after all, virtual slaves to whomever is commander-in-chief at the time. They shouldn't have to pay taxes at all."

"All the money thrown into education has not achieved more results to this point; More money will only support teachers' unions."

"How fitting that an article in today's ‘other' newspaper regarding bills presented in AZ's State Legislature to revamp unions ended on the same page that the Obituaries started. Unions had there time and place of importance but now they should just be shown to their graves."

"There was a time when the workers that also happen to belong to a union helped to build this country. But now the unions, utilizing these same workers, are destroying this nation. They have burdened American businesses and are trying to burden our governments into bankruptcy."

"Attorney General Eric Holder lied to Congress, and the American people, that he did not personally know about the gun-walking and the United States Department of Justice tactics in Operation ‘Fast & Furious' the day a U.S. Border Patrol agent was killed by Mexican drug lords using guns supplied by federal agents."
