Arizona made national news again, but it was not necessarily in a good way. My sister back in Indiana called me last week. She was watching the news and wanted to know what on Earth was happening in Arizona. When SB 1062 passed both chambers of the legislature, a friend from high school who connects with me via Facebook wrote, “Chalk up another one for religion.”
You’re probably aware that Pulte Homes is trying to purchase the now-defunct Lakes Golf Club and put up almost 300 homes. Owner Wilson Gee closed the course last May and is trying to sell it to Pulte. Pulte is touting the move as an “enhancement” to Ahwatukee. But, the existing CC&Rs strictly forbid the course’s use for any purpose other than a golf course. Even worse, Pulte’s plan to “set aside” the CC&Rs would automatically apply to the Ahwatukee Country Club as well.

I “was” a die-hard Republican, now I’m pondering what type of party would best represent my views. I’m also agnostic. I will never be a Democrat, nor a religious Bible thumper. But what I witnessed this week just blew my mind. What is with these people that we elect to represent us? They represent themselves as being common and ordinary citizens when running for office, but once in office it all falls apart. SB 1062! Why, oh why, couldn’t our elected representatives see the problems with this bill? I’m now convinced that we have idiots on both sides of the aisle representing mainstream America.
