EASY! It is a story that is supposed to get people to think. We Americans have not been honest with ourselves and are now paying for our new age culture. You may not be a Christian, but the founding of this nation was based on those principles and that of the enlightenment. We want to blame something instead of the choices we have made that are the root cause of these actions. Christian beliefs and family values are quickly disappearing and being replaced with the idea that government is the answer. Getting rid of assault rifles is not going to fix the violence and lack of respect for human life.6 months ago
And I take it you are ok with that??? Liberals are simply slow, there is nothing else that can be said. You do not have to get a passport unless you want to travel. You do not have to buy stamps unless you are going to mail something. You only pay taxes on money you earn.
You must now buy something just for being! Do you get that?? Liberty is not stripped away all at once, it is chipped away by people asleep at the wheel!6 months ago
No we are upset that a large group of Americans would sacrifice Liberty for your political gain. We have allowed our government to now mandate citizens to buy things. It enters us into a new contract that you may like now, but when the shoe is on the other foot I know the whining lamp will be on and bright!7 months ago
Chuckles, would you please stop making sense! That is crazy talk.
If we just rob form the rich and give to the poor, maybe Robin Hood will come prancing out of the forest with Snow White in tow. The majority of Americans are morons now and we have to deal with that.
Liberal fairy tales won't fix squat and we did not elect the grown ups to turn this train wreck of an economy around. I predict a whole lot of new excuses over the next few months, anybody wanna make a bet???7 months ago
I am amazed by this election. I feel that our days as the leader of the world are numbered. We are destined to fail and it is by our own doing.
There is a large portion of the country that have turned from our values of doing what is best for the nation to what is best for "my" group. The current administration has turned the feeling of many toxic.
This is the begging of the Cold Civil War. A nation divided! 7 months ago
The Civil War war was fought in the 1860's, that is less than a century from the other rebellion that was the foundation of this country. It was the American spirit than and to some degree today to rebel against government intrusion into individuals lives.
The Dred Scott decision favored the south and was not reversed until the passage of the fourteenth ammendment after the Civil War.
The difference in the two economies is that the north was a finished goods exporter and the south was a raw materials exporter. When the government started placing tariffs on finished products being imported into the US, those countries retalliated by tariffs against raw materials being imported from the US. To the south, this was the government interfering with their lives.
This is just like the rebellion against England, which was fought over government intrusion. 7 months ago
Cerulean, I did not ignore it because that was not the driving factor of those in the South that fought the North. People are trying to portray these men a certain way, which is another re-write of what really happened.
Look, the South started the war with the firing upon Ft. Sumpter. It started the war, not the other way. Were there evil people in the south, sure. I would just like to say they were a very small minority and most that fought for the South were not rich plantation owners.
I'm not trying to argue, but ignorant America does not know the facts. If you ask most people they will say that the Civil War was fough over slavery and that is just not true.7 months ago
This is what is wrong with America. The Civil War was not fought over slavery! Many seem to think it was, but it was not. The Civil War had to do with the different economies in the North and South. The federal government was placing tariffs on goods imported form Europe that competed with the Nothern economy (finished goods). The South was an agricultural economy that exported most goods to Europe. European coutries started placing tariffs against Southern imports. The South did not have the influence in the federal government to change this, which caused the war.7 months ago
CooperG- The current Federal administration does have some input as to some of the financial woes in this state.
Illegal immigtation is a huge problem in this state. The education and medical costs that the state has to deal with are extreme and it the tax payers bearing the cost of illegals. The current and previous administrations have failed to deal with the problem because of politics, focing the state to pick up the tab.

I live in San Tan Valley and my tax dollars are going to other cities. I do not care if hard times are affecting local governments, it is wrong to steal from your neighbor! Jul 5, 2010
