Ken Bennett -- GET A LIFE!11 months ago
Thank you, Jan Brewer, for making plain you believe in the tyranny of the majority. There are limits to what the majority can impose even in a democracy. That's why the U.S. Supreme Court based Roe v. Wade on the right to privacy. Some decisions are so private, so intimate that government should not stick its nose in them. I find it hard to believe a woman could be so callous and cavalier about the most private, intimate decision of them all--whether to carry a fetus to term.12 months ago
A pointless measure since no matter how Arizona changes its state constitution, the federal constitution prevails. The feds could and would send in an army if they had to, to enforce it.Apr 17, 2012
Someone should demand to see the bank account statements for Sheriff's Joe's re-election war chest. Despite all his out-of-state supporters, $6 million strikes me as figure exaggerated to try and scare off potential challengers. In any case, what Maricopa County needs is low-key sheriff who concentrates on high-quality law enforcement, instead of a blowhard misappropriating county funds to persecute people to cater to the racist sentiment. People willing to do dirty, awful work for low pay that none of the racists would deign to do. A sheriff who doesn't abuse the law to punish his political opponents. A sheriff who doesn't neglect serious crimes to concentrate on publicity stunts that harm our reputation and economic interests in the rest of the country and around the world. Arpaio should be, if there was justice, in his own stinking jail. I'll settle for his involuntary retirement.Jan 5, 2012
Obviously, Sheriff Joe can't read. What does he think was in that DOJ report, which went into painstaking detail to be factual? So much so that many of his fellow Republicans, like McCain and Kyl, ran for cover. It is time for a new, low key sheriff in Maricopa County, who doesn't constantly get sued costing the county millions in settlements, who doesn't abuse the powers of his office, and who guards the civil rights of all people in the state with fairly and equally.Jan 4, 2012
So much for an independent commission. Hopefully, Pearce gets recalled next week and with him goes his Gestapo tactics. This governor and legislature are a disgrace to the state. Can you say "abuse of power." If the Dems had tried this naked power grab, the GOP would be crying bloody murder.Nov 2, 2011
