Of the seventeen pardons recently granted by President Obama for various crimes, one was to a person convicted of illegal possession of an unregistered firearm. So much for gun laws.
A survivor of the 1994 Rwandan genocide, Immaculee Ilibagiza tells her story of forgiveness and hope at this event benefiting St. Peter Indian Mission School in Bapchule.
“War on Women?” How about “War on the Innocent.” Why is it if you speak to the rights of the unborn you are labeled as a warrior against women. The right not to get pregnant is clearly the right of all women. If they fail to protect that right, then the destruction of the baby is the true casualty of war.
Oskar Knoblauch, author of “A Boy’s Story - A Man’s Memory Surviving the Holocaust 1933-1945,” will share his tale 11 a.m. Nov. 10 at Mesa’s Main Library.
Mesa police are investigating the shooting of a burglary suspect who police believe was confronted by the homeowner who shot the suspect inside his home on Thursday.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer says she's horrified and heartbroken by the bombings at the Boston Marathon that left at least two people dead and dozens badly injured.
With regard to Secretary Leon Panetta’s fear that reduced defense spending will “hollow out our military,” one must ask why there are currently over 196,000 American military troops stationed in 150-plus foreign countries. Does the money spent to deploy troops in this manner really help secure the shores of the United States of America?
It’s hard to figure out Mitt Romney.
Two “Shred-A-Thon” events will be held in September in the East Valley, one in Mesa and one in Chandler.
There are some mighty fine readers in Chandler.
This weekend’s Chandler Airport Dayz will feature aircraft, classic cars, informational booths, vendors, food and live music Friday and Saturday at Chandler Municipal Airport. The event will be hosted by Chandler Air Service, a flight school located at 1675 E. Ryan Road.
It appears that it is the singular attention-grabbing incidents that prevent many from being successfully oblivious to the turmoil that has beset Afghanistan. Reports that Marines were depicted urinating on Afghan corpses rocked the decency of many. The inadvertent burning of Qurans resulted in the Taliban’s killing of over 30 of their countrymen and injuring more. Yet, to date, protests over an Army soldier allegedly shooting 16 Afghan civilians has not provoked protests comparable to those resulting from the burning of the Qurans. Is one to deduce that human life is not as sacrosanct as the Quran?
Arizona Air National Guard F-16 fighters will be flying over downtown Phoenix Thursday as they practice intercepting hostile aircraft intent on a terrorist attack.
The military will conduct air interceptions of mock hostile aircraft over Phoenix this week.
Horrible, the loss of three innocent lives in the Boston bombing! Then what word could one use to express the fact that between 158,000 and 202,000 civilians have died as a result of the ongoing conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Pakistan? It is understandable that the attack in Boston is a national tragedy for the United States. Our sympathies and prayers go out to the victims. But why is it that the loss of innocent lives in the Middle East has been hardly worthy of a second thought, if any, on our part?
It appears that President Obama, Leon Pinetta (Def.Sec) and Gen. Dempsey (JCS) are excited over instituting a Combat Infantry Roll for our Women in the military. I certainly hope these men did not make their their decision on “Band Wagon Appeal” only?
Notice that General Stanley McChrystal does not support private use of assault weapons. And Stan is the authority on counter terrorism. I was on active duty for seven years, was Unit Property Book officer for 5 years in three different units during which time I held all of my units’ weapons locked up safe and secure in my unit arms rooms. So perhaps our Constitution does permit Congress to require that all civilians who would chose to own military style weapons to secure them in a “well regulated” militia’s arms room! Five weapon safes cost less than $300. If that’s good for the active duty geese, it ought to be good for the ganders, too.
Despite some contemporary opinion, there is no historical evidence, except for a bit of Thomas Jefferson’s political writings, that the Second Amendment to the Constitution was designed to ensure that Americans could, if necessary, rise to remove a tyrannical government.
Let’s face it, the nation’s founders didn’t create the Second Amendment to allow people to kill defenseless, unarmed school children.
An exhibit on display for a limited time at the Arizona Jewish Historical Society’s Cutler Plotkin Jewish Heritage Center is bringing visitors face-to-face with lifelike, three-dimensional renderings of real-life Holocaust survivors.
In reply to John K. Walker’s letter concerning the Second Amendment.
I am writing about the not-so-thoughtful letter from gun (lover) Arthur C. Peterson: “What kind of country do you want?” I’d like to live in a country where so-called law-abiding citizens do not have access to weapons of war like AK 47’s that are designed to kill as many people as possible as quickly as possible. I also certainly don’t want to live in a country where citizens are allowed to possess chemical or biological weapons like Peterson advocated.
Police still are seeking four men including a person of interest in the shooting death of a 38-year-old Chandler man.
Arizona State University has been awarded a four-year, $30 million contract from the U.S. Department of Defense to protect military personnel against bioterrorism.
One year after the U.S. assassination of Osama bin Laden, I’m concerned that our government is still pursuing the same failed war strategy in Afghanistan based on bringing “peace” through fighting and war.
