Ummm, "word to the wise," try running for public office...AZ Rep Arredondo's seat
may become vacant pending an investigation, U.S. Congressman pays 6-figures + perks, plus U.S. Senator from AZ pays 7-figures plus perks & all U have to do
is look dumb, sell-out the State of AZ or Ur constituents, smile a lot & shake hands...LOL!11 months ago
Ummm, most of these candidates are unemployed or looking for a pay-raise
as a "Congressman" or "Congresswoman," so vote for none of them but the absent
CIA_Officer candidate. It seems like he's the only one who knows anything about how the U.S. Gov't operates & is already owned by the U.S. Military_Industrial_Security_ Complex...LOL!11 months ago
Hooray for Maricopa County Sheriff Joe "Tent City" Arpaio's illegal MX aliens & criminal MX Drug Cartel murderers jailer!!!! He must be doing an outstanding
job with a $4 million MX Drug Cartel bounty on his head. Joe Arpaio has got my
vote for Maricopa County Sheriff in 2012 because the man has "huevos" & testicular
fortitude to protect the law-abiding Maricopa County citizens' public safety.12 months ago
A Dummycrat "Socialist-Liberal" is a code word for "Communist-Dictatorship" in today's university environment, while a "Conservative" is a political code word for "Neocon_Dictatorship" of elitists like George W. Bushwhacker & his GOP run by VP Dick Cheney et. al. There's no difference in the politics of both Dummycrat "Social_Liberal_Communists" vis_a_vis GOP "Neocon_Dictatorship_Elitiests"...
both have no respect for the terms & conditions of the U.S. Constitution & Bill of Rights & are "Tax_&_$pend" lap-dogs of the Wall $t. Bankster$. After all, $$$ talks, Democratic Principles "walk$"...LOL!!!12 months ago
It's amazing how academia can make a proverbial "mountain out of a mole hill" & overgeneralize about nothing with the disparity between men & women salaries. For all things to be equal, we should be in a socialistic, communistic, fascist society where slavery of the proletariat is the norm. How about the 325,000 hardcore high school, college grad & middleaged American workers who dropped off the BLS monthly unemployment figures last month, hmmmm? Now go figure their "salaries" & wage disparity based on gender...LOL!!!Dec 3, 2011
Ummm, great comment on "Junk Bond" status of worthless mortgage-backed securities these Wall St. Banksters sold affecting the value of their "Derivatives." BTW, the latest Quarterly Report of the U.S. Office of Currency Comptroller IDed the top 4 U.S. Banks holding a massively disproportionate DERIVATIVE$ risk in the U.S. Financial System...JPMorganChase, CITIGROUP, BofA & Goldman-Sachs holding/OWING 96% of the $250 TRILLION in outstanding DERIVATIVE$ exposure. The U.S. + ENTIRE Planet doesn't have enuf $$$$ to pay these losing DERIVATIVE$ gambling debts of these WALL_ST_BANKSTER$$$....
"The latest quarterly report from the Office Of the Currency Comptroller is out and as usual it presents in a crisp, clear and very much glaring format the fact that the top 4 banks in the US now account for a massively disproportionate amount of the derivative risk in the financial system. Specifically, of the $250 trillion in gross notional amount of derivative contracts outstanding (consisting of Interest Rate, FX, Equity Contracts, Commodity and CDS) among the Top 25 commercial banks (a number that swells to $333 trillion when looking at the Top 25 Bank Holding Companies), a mere 5 banks (and really 4) account for 95.9% of all derivative exposure (HSBC replaced Wells as the Top 5th bank, which at $3.9 trillion in derivative exposure is a distant place from #4 Goldman with $47.7 trillion). The top 4 banks: JPM with $78.1 trillion in exposure, Citi with $56 trillion, Bank of America with $53 trillion and Goldman with $48 trillion, account for 94.4% of total exposure. As historically has been the case, the bulk of consolidated exposure is in Interest Rate swaps ($204.6 trillion), followed by FX ($26.5TR), CDS ($15.2 trillion), and Equity and Commodity with $1.6 and $1.4 trillion, respectively. And that's your definition of Too Big To Fail right there: the biggest banks are not only getting bigger, but their risk exposure is now at a new all time high and up $5.3 trillion from Q1 as they have to risk ever more in the derivatives market to generate that incremental penny of return."Sep 25, 2011
I hope U return safely from your 3rd Combat Tour to Afghanistan, Pfc. Anderson, & wish U the best. My nephew just returned from his eighth (8th) 12-month combat tour/deployment as a 15-year career USMC jarhead E-8 MSgt/1stSgt with his Force Recon unit from Afghanistan again this month & is glad to be back home with his wife & daughters at Camp Lejeune, SC again. Having served under Prezes Clinton, GWB & now OBAMA makes no difference as Cmdr-In-Chief. The wars are winless, brave U.S. troops are KIAed/WIAed & thousands of civilians are "collateral damaged"...like my war...the Vietnam War where over 58,000 troops were KIAed, "defending" our country. Good luck!!Sep 18, 2011
Ummm, when 4 of 8 AZ GOP U.S. Congressmen & 1-Dummycrat Jewish U.S. Congresswomen (Gabrielle Giffords of Tucson) end up on a Zionist AIPAC junket to Israel, it's no wonder ODUMBO has problems cleaning up the economic mess the ex-GOP Prez Jorge "Boracho" Bushwhacker left after 8 years in office. The "mental-midget" Wall_St_Bankster$ Jewish-Zionist inmates were running DC & the U.S. economy unrestrained or regulated, thanks to Prez "Slick_Willy" Clinton & Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan having the Glass-Steagal Act regulating financial institutions & banking in the U.S. repealed in 1991, causing this 21st Century Great Global Economic DEPRESSION. With Zionist Wall St. Banksters from Goldman-Sachs, Lehman Bros., CITIGROUP, JPMorganChase, BofA, Royal Bank of Scotland, Bank of England, Bank of Ireland, Credit Suisse & Deutschbank with over $200 BILLION in civil suits & litigation pending, it's no wonder ODUMBO's administration is in a tizzy, not knowing what to do to fix the criminal, fraudulent mortgage-backed securities (CDO's + CDSs) fiasco bankrupting Pension funds, Countries & municipalities globally. BTW, howcum we have GOP U.S. Congressmen Flake, Schweitzer, Quayle & Trent Frank going on a paid Boondoggle to Israel & Zionist-Central along with 91 other U.S. Congressmen, while AZ suffers over 9.1% unemployment rate while neighboring New Mexico's current unemployment rate is 6.1%????...+ NM U.S. Congressmen didn't junket to Zionist-AIPAC Central Israel, hmmm?...LOL!Sep 18, 2011
Ummm, Tempe Elementary School District No.3, Kyrenne Elementary School District & Tempe Unified School Districts are superfluous, absurd, ridiculous, expensive & absurd...a true testament to bureaucratic "empire-building" & unrestrained "tax_&_spend" mentality. Close down more schools, RIF administrators & teachers, & merge 3 unneeded school districts into 1. It's the only logical thing to do!Sep 18, 2011
I drive Toyota's & will "Buy American" when GM, FORD, Chrysler decide to make their trucks & cars in the U.S. instead of Ford making their Ford Fusion cars in Hermosillo, Sonora, MX plant by MX workers who will collect U.S. Social Security Retirement per the U.S. Social Security Totalization Act of 2006-2007 passed by the GOP Prez GWB + then U.S. Senator Barack "SKUNK" Obama (D, IL)...LOL! So get Ur facts straight about "Buying American" when our Tax Dollars are still Bailing_out U.S. multinational Corporations with BILLION$$$$ overseas to quit paying their fair-share of U.S. Corporate Income Taxes (e.g., CISCO Systems pays a mere 25% Corporate Income Tax in U.S. by keeping $40 BILLION of it's capital offshore in Switzerland per CISCO CEO in a recent CBS "60 minutes" program interview...LOL!!!Sep 16, 2011
