So these girls blush in the dressing room. But how do they act when they maybe get raped because of their "sexy clothes"?10 months ago
So this jerk abducts a 14 year old girl in the parking lot and he gets only probation and deferred jail time? You have to be kidding. Isn't there something in the law that equates abduction with out right kidnapping..a Federal and State crime? This sentencing judge should be run out of town. Remember folk who to vote for come election time. Be sure to vett these judges before voting.10 months ago
[wink] Well thank you tax payers association for your good work. Have to keep an
on those people who continually want more taxes for their own benefit. We should be
lowering sales taxes instead of raising them. And when"they" practice business as usual in turning
temporary sales tax into permanent sounds to me like well... "they" are up to their
same old tricky tricks.

This whole sales tax issue is down right dumb. Arizona has one the highest sales tax rates in the nation. In Mesa with state,county,and city taxes we pay in excess of 9%. Times are tough for the honest tax payer who must put up with brain-dead government leaders who refuse to cut back expenditures. Their justification for high sales tax is that we have a low property tax rate...give me a break. Any homeowner will tell you that their property taxes are not low. And even with property tax valuations in decline, we STILL pay the same or higher property tax as before the housing market crash. If i were a car dealer i would be screaming. Figure it out: a $30,000 purchased automobile @$30,000 cost X 9%tax = $ 2,700 net tax pay out. And for a whooping $2,700, i can afford to fly myself, kids, and grand kids to a sales tax free state say like Oregon...enjoy a great vacation...then drive my new car or van back to Mesa with a happy smile....ALL on the money i would have spent on my Mesa automobile purchase. People wake up! Join your tax payers association and help fight these high sales taxes. Vote people in office say like hones house wives who really know what it means to budget.11 months ago
Wait and see. This will be another case of the liberal do-gooders to get this loon off with a prison sentence. I agree with Juggernaut8000 when he says "...get him into an electric chair"...except sir Juggernaut...let's hang this guy publicly for all to see as an example that the people wii no longer accept this kind of insanity.Apr 16, 2012
O' Dale. Do you really think all you believe about "neoconservatism is the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth? And the points made by Professor Clarke on international ethics and neoconservatism......? Each of the seven points about neoconservaties made in your letter are easily disputed and undoubtedly contested by fair and balanced thinking people like Patrick Shepherd. Furthermore, it may be to your benefit to learn some logical reasoning like Rich presented in his letter. Also, Dale me boy, learn for yourself to "think out of the box". You might be pleasantly surprised that what so-called experts say about a subject, can be mere speculation or opinion like anyone else.Apr 12, 2012
[beam][wink][sad] So teacher Mike from Gilbert. You say sheriff Joe exploits our fears of illegal immigrants. O really now. Joe does his elected job to enforce illegal immigration laws..yes laws passed by the duly elected legislative branch of our government. And because "you" don't like these laws, instead of changing them in a government of law elected by free legal citizens...you would rather go after our law enforcement people by political fiat. What part of illegal do you not understand Mike? Surely you must have at one time become acquainted with our Arizona State Constitution. What did you teach in High School. I hope it wasn't civics.Apr 12, 2012
