Which of the following dictionary descriptions most accurately describes the ideology of the current administration?
Is it even possible to get unhooked from government? How can a nation unravel the insidious weave of obligations that enslaves its citizens? It’s my take that drastic measures are needed or our rights will soon be folklore.
I find the opposition to Obamacare a gross, contradictory, and hypocritical position held by certain elected officials who represent the citizens of this great country.
Karma is a domestic short-haired buff and white large male kitty.
The City of Mesa is celebrating Global Youth Service Day by hosting an athletic shoe drive for kids 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 27 at Mountain View High School.
I saw the title “Right wing is destroying the economy” and I did not even need to look at the author. I knew it was my good left-wing friend Rod Livdahl. Mr. Livdahl and other Liberals, please consider the following: You cite the austerity programs in Europe as ruining their economy, ignoring the fact that liberal spending policies in these quasi-socialistic countries drove the debt up so high that they were forced to curtail spending. As Maggie Thatcher once said, “eventually Socialists run out of other peoples’ money.”
Holy cow, what is going on at the Arizona Legislature: Bill aims to censor teachers' speech? For years now our legislators have been micromanaging everything that goes on in our state: micromanaging its citizens, micromanaging the cities, micromanaging the schools and universities, micromanaging law enforcement. Now they want to control what teachers can and cannot say in and around the classroom. Isn't that what we have school boards and principals for? Somebody complains or gripes and we get another bill, another law? Don't we have enough laws already? Isn't Arizona supposed to be a conservative bastion? Conservative in social norms, fiscally conservative, limited government? After 100 years, can't Arizona citizens be trusted to do anything right? I guess not.
Chandler Regional and Mercy Gilbert medical centers appointed Aaron Peace as vice president of philanthropy and president of Dignity Health Foundation East Valley.
Over this past July 4th, I was thinking about the founding of this country and the documents that made it great. Some people may not be aware of the Supreme Court’s modifications of the original documents, so, as a public service, here is one of those documents, the Declaration of Dependence:
“We the People” have spoken. Not against Democrats or for Republicans, but against a philosophy that trivializes individuality while promoting central power in big government.
Capitalism or socialism in america. which shall it be? All the signs are there. Our nation is rapidly moving towards socialism. Americans on some form of welfare outnumber the number of workers. National healthcare is upon us and the middle class is being destroyed. The unemployment rate is reported to be 7.2 percent but the real number is in the range of 15 percent. We are becoming a nation of part time workers. Our national debt is a disaster waiting to happen. Perhaps this is what our President had in mind when he said “I want to fundamentally transform America”.
Teachers say a new philosophy has transformed Higley’s Gateway Pointe Elementary School.
Barbara Carrig has spent most of February trying to prove she exists.
When the Republicans talk about “Affordable Heathcare,” one of the options they tout is “Repeal and Replace.” Given their past history, a Republican “Replace” option concerns me more than anything else. Republicans have always prohibited Medicare — the single largest buyer — from attempting to negotiate drug prices, consistent with the pharmaceutical companies’ philosophy that completely unrestrained prices and profits are necessary to fund the risk-taking of research and development. Medicare is required by Congress to accept the pharmaceutical companies’ prices without comparison or negotiation, add 6 percent to it, and pay it. As a perpetual gift to the pharmaceutical companies, when Part D of Medicare was passed in 2003, Congress prohibited Medicare from negotiating altogether. There were some reciprocal gifts from the pharmaceutical companies to the cooperating Congressmen, as might be expected.
A friend sent me a message over the weekend. They informed me of a link on Barack Obama's campaign Web site, "Public Allies" and informed me that once there if you read a bit you would find the statement, "Individual salvation depends on collective salvation."
The FairTax is an idea whose time has come. Congress — both House and Senate, Republicans and Democrats — has demonstrated time after time the inability to restrain itself with the public purse. Congress simply can’t govern effectively as long as the income tax is in place. Even the “fiscal crises” legislation passed by the current congress added $74 billion MORE to the deficit; all to favor special interest groups. In order to save America, congress must be denied the instrument of its folly: the income tax. A solution has been filed away in a drawer somewhere by the congress for over 10 years. It’s called The FairTax. It’s neither a Republican nor democrat idea but truly an American idea!
Have you wondered lately about this question: If John McCain is so bad for the Republican Party, then who are all these Republicans around the country who keep voting for him?
I have read in this (publication) a letter berating the general concern for our high national unemployment rate and at the same time suggests that corporations have no problem with the high unemployment rate and actually favor it for the cheap labor pool it produces.
Supporters of Mitt Romney enthusiastically tout his private sector success as qualifying him to lead our nation. There is no question that Romney was incredibly successful as a venture capitalist, although admittedly he started a little farther down the road than most people could.
