Letter: Let’s save the Phoenix pension system from bankruptcy
Posted: April 14, 2014

The pension system for the city of Phoenix is on the verge of ruin. Years of abuse, mismanagement and political malfeasance have pushed the city’s ailing pension fund toward a crisis, threatening to cost future taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars. This silently mushrooming debt has put Phoenix in fiscal dire straits similar to those of Detroit and Chicago.

Letter: What’s APS really up to?
Posted: April 12, 2014

Utility ratepayers and voters in Arizona may not be aware that APS used its funds derived from ratepayers to promote Connie Wilhelm in the recent SRP District Board election, even after getting caught with their hands in the cookie jar to secretly spend money to defeat Democrats on the Corporation Commission in the 2012 election. We the ratepayers should be very concerned, better yet, outraged, and should be asking, what is APS up to?

Letter: Current Ariz. OSHA proposal inadequate
Posted: April 12, 2014

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has determined that the new residential fall protection standard passed in Arizona reduces worker protection to a level that is not at least as effective as the federal rule, and plans to take action to reject the standard.

Letter: Obamas’ defective character
Posted: April 12, 2014

This fall America is going to have an election. This is not going to be an election for president, but the Republican party has shown that it doesn’t know how to win an election. John McCain would have had an easy win if he approached it as Sarah Palin wanted: she wanted to attack Barack Obama where he was most vulnerable, his defective character. Sen. McCain only wanted to attack Obamas’ policies, refusing to do as Palin advised. By his actions, he was allowing Obama to win.

Posted: April 12, 2014

Letter: Kennedy off base with Obama-dictator comparison
Updated: April 11, 2014 - 10:57 pm

In response to “President or dictator?” (AFN, guest commentary by Ahwatukee resident Don Kennedy, March 23) — aren’t we getting a little carried away here? If President Obama were truly seeking dictatorial powers, don’t you think there would be a large outcry from the loyal opposition Republicans? They would be screaming “ABUSE of POWER” with motions in Congress for Articles of Impeachment.

Letter: Obama’s going for complete power grab
Posted: April 07, 2014

Obama Care is going full force. They have been signing a lot of people up, and the media is suggesting that the people will fall in love with it. I was talking with a friend and asked him what metric would you use to indicate whether Obama Care is successful. We never came up with a metric. If 20 million people sign up and receive great service, would that be the metric that we should use?
