Once again, we see America supporting the “dirty end” of the political stick. We are (or soon will be) supplying money and weapons to the “al-Queda” Islamists in Syria (the Islamic state of Iraq, the Levant, Ahrar al-Sham to name a few of these crazies who practice cannibalism, beheadings and the like). Now we are to climb in bed with Neo-Nazi’s in Ukraine (Svoboda, Patriots of Ukraine, Spilna Sprava, Afgantsy and the Ukrainian Insurgent Army to name just a few).
Common sense would dictate that Chickenhawks like Dick Cheney and Ted Nugent should be the last people to be consulted about troop levels and defense matters, but that’s exactly what is happening. Chickenhawks everywhere hope that an aggressive chest-thumping posture on fighting for your country will cause the American public to have amnesia about how these cowards showed the white feather when it came time for them to stand up and fight for their country during the Vietnam War. When it comes time for someone to fight for their country, Nugent and Cheney think there is no limit, as long as it does not include them. It insults our veterans to let Cheney and Nugent pose as patriots.
At first flicker, the Turner Classic Movies documentary "And the Oscar Goes To ..." appears to be little more than a promotional film for the Academy Awards.
Gov. Jan Brewer is building up her war chest to help elect like-minded Republicans to Congress.
I’m glad to see our elected leaders in Washington have approved a plan to allow the federal government to spend money through 2014. I was particularly pleased to see that Congress has restored some money for Head Start and other investments in the health of our communities and has refused to give the Pentagon all the money that it was asking for.
During the Vietnam War, our generals told us with a straight face that they had to “destroy the village to save the village” to justify the American governments burning to the ground of villages that had a few communist supporters in them.

Step right up and meet the man who, some say, is the greatest man in American history — George Washington. Though, you will actually be meeting George Fairfax, the man who portrays Washington for a living. Originally from Virginia, Fairfax lives and breathes Washington and will transport you through time to a place where the General is the most respected man in the country.
Everybody loves veterans. But it often isn’t easy to be a veteran.
Amid cannon fire, flyovers and parachutists, the Higley Unified School District honored many veterans during its Veterans Day celebration on Nov. 8 — one of several events in the East Valley to recognize those who have served.

I arrived in Vietnam just after our first 8,000 “advisors” landed there to “assess the situation.” Our leaders decided to show the free world that we would stand up to Communist aggression. We sent more and more troops and resources; the USSR. sent only resources. We lost the war and 58,000 precious lives.
This week’s 50th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s March on Washington is being observed with marches, speeches, and speculation on what causes Dr. King would embrace today.
Sen. John McCain was one of the driving forces behind the Senate Immigration Reform bill. He recently told a meeting of the AFL/CIO — democrats — that amnesty is the keystone of the bill, and he supports it. More recently he said that if the 2016 presidential race were between Hillary Clinton and Rand Paul, he just wasn’t certain who he would support. Oh, really?
America hasn’t “won” a war since 1945. Korean War cost a billion dollars and didn’t change a thing. 36,574 Americans died and 103,284 were wounded. During the 1967 Israel/Arab War, 34 American Sailors were killed and 171 wounded by the Israel Air Force.
Friday will be Chandler Police Chief Sherry Kiyler’s last day on the job. She is retiring after over nine years as chief.

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — The Navajo Code Talkers are legendary. Then there was Cpl. Ira Hamilton Hayes, the Pima Indian who became a symbol of courage and patriotism when he and his fellow Marines raised the flag over Iwo Jima in 1945.
I can’t think of a country that doesn’t have something like Memorial Day. Whether democratic or totalitarian or anything in between, national honors are paid annually to those who have given their lives for their countries.
WASHINGTON — This may be the year Congress decides what to do about the millions of immigrants living illegally in the U.S. And this may be the week when a bipartisan group of senators makes public details of the overhaul plan it has been negotiating for months.
"The Sapphires" is missing a lot — detailed characters, a unique narrative arc, half-plausible scenes of the Vietnam War — but it's got two uncommon things going for it: genuine charm and Chris O'Dowd. They are not mutually exclusive.
In a rare show of bipartisanship, Senate Democrats and Republicans will hold a joint meeting next month to mark the 40th anniversary of Sen. John McCain's release from a North Vietnamese prison.
