If you are running low on things to worry about, allow me to recommend our national retirement crisis. As things now stand, most Americans are headed toward a retirement of poverty. A new normal for seniors threatens: too old to work, too poor to retire.
WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker John Boehner declared Friday that President Barack Obama was "damaging the presidency" with his unilateral action on immigration. He said the Republican-run House will not stand by, but gave no hint of what the response would be.
Disingenuous or dumb?
“Why does Mitch McConnell, a man who got an average of 723,000 votes when getting elected to the Senate, think he can politically bully a man who averaged 67.7 million votes when getting elected as president? Know your place, Senator.”
The fact that politics may have been involved in drawing legislative lines is no reason to declare them illegal, the attorney for the Independent Redistricting Commission is urging the U.S. Supreme Court.
The Democrats need a new theme. Their mantra has been that the Republicans are all rich. How can this be if a majority of American are Republicans and eight of the 10 richest senators are Democrats?

WASHINGTON (AP) — The three Republican senators responsible for comprehensive immigration legislation, which remains stalled in Congress, Thursday urged President Barack Obama to hold off on any steps to shield millions of people from deportation.
"Acting by executive order on an issue of this magnitude would be the most divisive action you could take — completely undermining any good-faith effort to meaningfully address this important issue, which would be a disservice to the needs of the American people," Sens. John McCain of Arizona, Lindsey Graham of South Carolina and Marco Rubio of Florida wrote to Obama.
Obama has said he would act after next week's midterm elections as Congress has failed to pass legislation to overhaul the nation's immigration system. The president said he would take steps to increase border security, upgrade the processing of border crossers and encourage legal immigration.
He also said he would offer immigrants who have been illegally in the United States for some time a way to become legal residents, pay taxes, pay a fine and learn English.
The president had promised to act this past summer, but delayed any decisions until after the elections, drawing the wrath of immigration advocacy groups and complaints from Republicans of "raw politics."
The three senators said in the letter that no presidential action should be taken until "we have properly secured our southern border and provided for effective enforcement of immigration laws." They complained that any executive action would undermine congressional efforts to reform the system.
McCain, Graham and Rubio were members of the so-called Gang of Eight, a bipartisan group that put together a broad overhaul of immigration that boosted border security, increased visas for legal immigrants and a provided a path to citizenship for the 11 million immigrants living in the country illegally.
The Senate passed the measure on a bipartisan vote in June 2013, but the Republican-led House has failed to act on any broad measure despite promises from GOP leaders that they would address the issue. Time is running out on the Senate-passed bill, with no indication that the House would vote during a postelection, lame-duck session.

LD 18 voters deserve the opportunity to cast an informed vote, but Jeff Dial is depriving voters of that opportunity by dodging all LD 18 Senate Debates, including the Clean Elections Debate. His opponent, Janie Hydrick, on the other hand, has appeared at the debate venues, and answered, at length, any and all questions from debate moderators and audience members. Her answers have shown her to be the candidate who embraces the moderate values of LD 18 residents.
With the 2014 election less than a week away, it’s important to remember that an election is a job review for legislators and elected officials. Let’s review.
As a very concerned Arizona resident and caring grandmother, I feel it is very important to inform Arizonans that their vote for superintendent of public instruction should be about qualifications, experience and expertise in the education field.
A good friend has a terminal illness but you can do something at no cost that could very well cure him. There are drugs in development that have been proven to be safe for his condition, but have not yet finished the final procedures the FDA requires. The FDA places these drugs out of reach of dying patients, drugs that could save their lives. Apparently it’s OK to die, but not for a dying man to risk a drug reaction!
Calling it a violation of constitutional rights, a federal appeals court on Wednesday voided a 2006 voter-approved measure which denied bail to those not in the country legally who were arrested for other crimes.
The Arizona Democratic Party wants an investigation into whether Republican attorney general candidate Mark Brnovich failed to register as a lobbyist in 2006.
As a registered Republican one of the biggest things that worries me about Republican gubernatorial candidate Doug Ducey is his climbing into political bed with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Why would a guy seek out the support and endorsement form a sheriff who is under federal scrutiny and court ordered regulation, has been shown to be an ineffective sheriff who blew off hundreds of cases involving rapes and child molests, has cost the taxpayers of Maricopa County well over $100 million dollars in misspent jail tax funds, has 30,000 unserved felony arrest warrants in his files, has cost us tens of millions of dollars related to lawsuits stemming from prisoners being abused and killed in his jail and who spent the last decade alienating Hispanics on both sides of the border?

State lawmakers cannot ignore a court order to provide more funds for schools now while they appeal the findings, a judge ruled Tuesday.
Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, a major architect of “Obamacare,” wrote a thought-provoking article in the Atlantic recently entitled “Why I Hope to Die at 75.” Although he graciously concedes the right of others to make different choices, this major health care policymaker insists that “families — and you — will be better off if nature takes it’s course swiftly and promptly,” with only palliative medicine provided to seniors over 75.
