There was a time when a good education would be a lock on a good career in AZ. Graduates are now figuring out that the Bush Administration and their partners in crime stole more than the the billions of dollars they left town with two years ago. The corporations are selling us out as they see their future in China and India. The State Administration hasn't made things any better and Obama has hardly stemmed the tide of careers rolling away from America's Shores.

The greedy scum at the top produce nothing, requested and accepted taxpayer bailouts and corporate welfare with a smile. They are still spending our stolen wealth in bonuses and worst of all, are allowed by all our bought and paid for politicians to continue the same dangerous market manipulations that caused our current problems. Meanwhile we are expected to squabble over minimum age jobs while the big fish clean our pockets. Your enemy is not poor people, pay attention: http://nextamendment.info/Mar 9, 2011

Love the Fair! I'll be there. Would love to see some auto racing, too. Question: Are they ever going to re-open Central Arizona Raceway? It was supposedly closed due to some theft of a few hundred dollars in funds (hard to believe). This has taken away a tradition of weekend family fun for hundreds of people in Pinal County (or was that just the cover story, since the developments were building closer and closer???) Bring back the Race Track!!!!Mar 9, 2011
