What’s with all the political posturing and saber-rattling by our “desk jockey admirals and generals” in the House and Senate? We see them rabidly calling for everything short of “carpet bombing” Tehran and turning it into another Dresden. Of course, none (or almost none) of the military-aged sons (or daughters for that matter) of these politicians have ever been in or ever will be in the U.S. military and have to fight in the wars that their mommies and daddies vote for.
Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus was one of the chief authors of Obamacare. He helped write it, he voted for it, and he thought it would be great for America. That is, until he started listening to his constituents three years later. At an April 2013 Senate Budget Committee hearing, Baucus said of Obamacare that he saw “a huge train wreck coming.”
The nuclear deal brokered by the United States and Iran in Geneva is historic. Just as the agreement to peacefully disarm Syria of its chemical weapons demonstrated, diplomacy makes the world a safer place.
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.
As Executive Director of The Arc of Arizona, an organization dedicated to serving people with disabilities since 1958, I see daily the impact of committed people joining together to advocate for the rights and community participation of people with disabilities.
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.”
I was 4 ½ years old when I delivered my first news report.
I disagree 100 percent with L.J. Rupp’s letter that seems to say the members of Congress are a bunch of morons and idiots who can’t get anything done!
PHOENIX — State officials are trying to delay a federal appellate court hearing on the question of whether the Tohono O'odham Nation can build a casino on the edge of Glendale.
Advocates for Comprehensive Immigration Reform (English translation: amnesty) like to point out that immigrants in the past have flocked to America and made important contributions to our nation. That’s true, but the America of 1913 was different from 2013 in ways that greatly affect the probability that immigrants will become contributing citizens.
Sheesh, what did they expect?
PHOENIX — Ken Bennett formally kicked off his bid to become governor Tuesday with a proposal to replace the state's income tax by increasing the number of goods and services subject to the state sales tax.
Is America’s center rising again? It certainly seems that way.
John McCain is still seething about the government shutdown and those darn conservative upstarts who caused it. For no good reason, the lives of thousands were interrupted in “real and painful” ways.
Either the American People can believe that Barack Hussein Obama is stupid (Occidental College, Columbia University, Harvard University, past President of the Harvard Law Review, former Visiting Law and Government Fellow University of Chicago, author of four books, former Illinois State Senator, former U.S. Senator and twice elected to be the President of the United States of America) or that he is a liar.

The state Court of Appeals on Tuesday blocked enactment of a new state law allowing candidates to take a lot more money from donors.
I have always been a conservative and, accordingly, have little common ground with either Republicans or Democrats. However, I have always had the greatest respect for the democratic process and majority rule. A majority of Americans, when disregarding political affiliation, generally make decisions that are best for America, and the current shutdown does not reflect majority rule.
PHOENIX – Facing pressure by community groups and criticism from legislative Democrats, Gov. Jan Brewer finally agreed late Monday to have a state agency shuffle around $650,000 in its budget to cover welfare payments for 3,200 needy families – but only through the end of the month.
