“Did you see the photo of the president shaking hands with Castro? Oh, I meant the photo of Richard Nixon shaking hands with Fidel Castro. He put the five-finger grip on Mao Tse-tung, too. Their records on human rights are pretty well known, but somehow the Republicans have a bad case of memory loss about those photos. McCain slipped Muammar Gaddafi ‘five’ also, but he seems to have forgotten that while taking Pres. Obama to task for his greeting to Raul Castro.”
Those crazy Regressives keep trying new avenues to convince us that “trickle down” economics actually “works” and their latest scam is the “Fair Tax,” a misnomer if there ever was one!
I am here to talk about a political cartoon in your newspaper. It was by Adam Zyglis posted on Aug. 2, 2013. It shows a Republican (represented by an elephant in a suit) saying “Practice makes perfect” while throwing a paper away in a garbage can that says “40th vote to repeal Obamacare,” and the lid to the trash is the Capitol building. At the bottom of the page it says, ”The art of doing Nothing.” This cartoon is showing how the government is falling apart and turning into garbage because of the huge disagreement in the congress, and how this all is going nowhere. I agree with what it is saying, and I think the government should come to some sort of an agreement on the law, or just have one side try to see the other side’s perspective instead of being blind on the whole picture.
“If President Obama wants to score points with Republicans and avoid another debt crisis, stop borrowing money from China and borrow from the Cayman Islands. That way most lawmakers could draw a paycheck and interest from the American people. They could call it The Grand Cayman Bargain. I would sleep better knowing American tax dollars went to an American politician to buy cocaine than a communist from China to buy American jobs.”
It may be that Arizonans know more about who is the secretary of state than the treasurer.
A free-market advocacy group claims that the decision by Gov. Jan Brewer to expand the state's Medicaid program will immediately increase the number of people in the program by nearly 90 percent.
A Maricopa County Superior Court judge refused late Friday to sideline charges against Attorney General Tom Horne and a supporter that they violated state campaign finance laws.
Supporters of the Independent Redistricting Commission want a federal court to rule that the Arizona Legislature has no right to challenge the voter-approved law.
The state Court of Appeals will decide whether groups that run commercials publicly criticizing elected officials and candidates right before an election have to disclose their donors.
I can’t imagine being a Child Protective Services caseworker. But I can imagine why most of those men and women went into those jobs: an idealistic view that their work could make a difference in children’s lives, maybe save some kids from horrible fates, maybe find ways to change a dysfunctional family into a loving one.
Does anyone even care that 6,000 cases of reported neglect and abuse went un-investigated by Child Protective Services Special Welfare Assessment Team at the Arizona Department of Economic Security?
PHOENIX — A plan by the Department of Economic Security to deal with a backlog of 6,000 uninvestigated child abuse complaints is getting panned by lawmakers from both sides of the aisle.
PHOENIX — The state's limits on how much candidates can collect from donors will remain in place, at least for the time being.
Arizona Senators Jeff Flake and John McCain fielded questions and comments — both positive and negative in nature — about the Affordable Care Act and addressed other issues at a town hall event in Mesa on Nov. 25.
Today, Harry Reid invoked the so called “Nuclear Option” — a critical change in the rules of the Senate that provided a voice for the minority party. When Obama had control of the House and the Senate we saw him ram through Obamacare. Obama has three more years to exercise his agenda but is fearful that he may actually lose control of the senate in 2014 due to the public backlash against Obamacare. His burning agenda is to stack the DC court with left wing judges and place more liberals in key positions within the government. He has stated that he feels these nominees are being held up by the GOP via filibuster. So, getting rid of this provision allows Obama to act with impunity in regards to nominees thus ensuring that he can place liberals in any position he wishes.
“I was glad to see Dems in the Senate use the nuclear option. Republicans had used obstruction tactics to the point it had evolved into torment of American people.”
PHOENIX — Reversing his earlier stance, Secretary of State Ken Bennett now wants to keep caps in place on what candidates can take from individuals and special interests, at least for the time being.
PHOENIX — Gov. Jan Brewer on Friday rejected calls by some Democrats for a special legislative session to give more cash to the beleaguered Child Protective Services.
PHOENIX – Arizonans may not get a chance to vote Green at the next election.
The theory of backlash from politicians ramming crap down citizens’ throat doesn’t seem to apply in Arizona. The Republicans have rammed all kinds of partisan and ideological crap down our throats and still plan to keep doing it.
“I believe I write and speak for all veterans when I send a big ‘thank you’ to all of the restaurateurs who served free meals to veterans on Monday. I know, that at the place my wife and I dined, we received the finest of service. Again, thanks a lot, really appreciated your service.”
What else can you do but chuckle at some of the “letter writers” and their devotion to ridiculous ideas they believe will “save America’ from succumbing to the disease of “socialism?”
Sheesh, what did they expect?
