"How come those who contend they love America so much are the ones who want to secede?"
"General Motors has 14 plants in China. Toyota has factories in the U.S. To the Venter who keeps telling us buy American cars because that would help the American economy: You’re stuck in the 1950s."
"The individual who believes that buying cars only from GM, Ford or Chrysler would prevent all our car purchasing dollars from supporting foreign countries, is mistaken. My Chevy HHR was assembled in Mexico."
"I am really surprised that you printed Susan Stamper Brown’s article on the UN and gun control. She hit it right on the head. I thought only the NRA knew about this since the liberal press has not mentioned it. Good for you."
"While the SRP canals are dry, this is the time to walk your children over BY THE HAND and show them how steep the banks and how deep the canals really are so they understand the danger. You should also show them the grates where they could get stuck in the culverts."
"I’ve never coached in the NFL, but I would like to know how I could get the address so I could apply to coach for the Cardinals. I don’t think I could do any worse."
"To the Venter who can’t wait for Rush Limbaugh to squeal when he has to pay more taxes: All I can say is you will be squealing too when you have to pay more. Mr. Limbaugh can afford it; can you? Don’t be afraid to let people know you are squealing, admit you made a mistake voting for Obama."
"It’s about time that some Republicans have decided to put common sense ahead of some misguided pledge to an arrogant lobbyist. The less the country hears from Grover Norquist, the better off we’ll be."
"The letter from Jim Perry in "the inbox" of the Sunday Trib hit the nail on the head with Senator McCain. Now I know there are many Democrats and Republicans that can work together to get rid of the senator, just as decent people came together to get rid of Pearce in the East Valley. Democrats and Republicans came together for a common goal and got a candidate both parties could back and work with in the state senate. So maybe some of us ought to get together and seek out a candidate that we both could back who will cross party lines to help all of us, not just the rich and the war mongers like McCain."
"I like to think that I’m one who can admit when I’ve been wrong. I’ve been a vocal critic of the light rail and the Valley Metro in general. Recently I’ve found myself having to travel frequently from my home in the northeast Valley to central Phoenix. I’ve used both Metro buses and light rail and have found travel on them to be pleasant, convenient and economical. I save money, eliminate frustration over traffic and parking, and I help reduce pollution. For the most part, Metro employees are friendly, professional and helpful. I’ve made new friends on the bus. I love looking out the bus window as we cruise down the 202 in the diamond lane and seeing most of the rest of you stuck in the ‘202 Parking Lot’. The light rail extension under way in Mesa will increase the value of property that I own downtown. I am now a cheerleader for the Metro."
