“The latest example of idiocy in the Arizona Legislature is by Sen. Robert Blendu and his committee compatriots who think it’s OK to obscure license plates to avoid citations.”

“Why do you think so many of our Canadian friends come here to have their surgeries and pay for it themselves? Because they could wait up to two years to get the heart surgery they need in Canada, and that’s what socialized medicine does for us.”

“Something you wouldn’t see in a newspaper in Canada would be the (Monday) story about the cancer survivor fighting to retain her medical coverage.”

“I tell all of my friends and neighbors in the Midwest, I know I’m back in Arizona when I see all of the abandoned shopping carts everywhere. What a shame.”
