Dedd... Hitler would have liked you! You are a moron..2 months ago
You are wrong in your belief that a right to work state means lower wages. Is all it means is that you can't be forced to join a union or be fired for not joining one. There are lots of unions in Arizona but it is up to each person if they want to join. Look around at how unions have ruined businesses. Read this:
Arizona is a Right to Work state. Often there is confusion as to what that means. Many people believe it means that you can be fired from your job without explanation, and they are, therefore, reluctant to live and work in a Right to Work state. That is not the basis of the Right to Work concept. A Right to Work law guarantees that no person can be compelled, as a condition of employment, to join or not to join, or to pay dues to a labor union. In other words, if you work in a Right to Work state, like Arizona, and the employees form a union, you may not be fired if you decide not to join. Likewise, if you are a member of a union in a Right to Work state, and you decide to resign from the union, you may not be fired for that reason.
Here is how Arizona's Constitution, article XXV, reads:
Right to work or employment without membership in labor organization
No person shall be denied the opportunity to obtain or retain employment because of non-membership in a labor organization, nor shall the State or any subdivision thereof, or any corporation, individual or association of any kind enter into any agreement, written or oral, which excludes any person from employment or continuation of employment because of non-membership in a labor organization. (Addition approved election Nov. 5, 1946, eff. Nov. 25, 1946; amended November 30, 1982.)

When is enough going to be enough? Every year they are crying for more money "for the kids". I don't get an increase in retirement that covers the increased cost of living. Tighten your belt like the rest of us have to do! Vote no on this tax increase!!!7 months ago

Doesn't say much for the educational system when someone can graduate from high school and can't speak english at a decent level.

What part of "temporary" don't you people understand? Arizona has one of the highest tax structures in the nation and you want to keep it that way. I am sure that will help with job growth. You are always saying "it is for the kids" or "law enforcement" but it is never enough... I hope to hell this does not pass. Enough is enough!!!10 months ago
I really don't care if he is Gay. Am I disappointed in him, yes. However, bottom line is he has done a great job as Sheriff and I support him for that reason. I don't condone his life style but what he does on his own time in his own privacy is none of my business. I am pretty sure none of this would have been brought up if he wasn't running for a new office. So do you think the Dems had something to do with this???
How deep did they have to dig? Anyone can accuse someone of doing something but they don't have to prove it, just say it happened and the happy press will jump on it. Feb 21, 2012
Accuracy.... Christians that don't recognize Mormons as Christians are ignorant and stupid. If you do any research at all you should know that they are Christians.
