The current struggle of wills regarding universal health care (Obamacare) and the debt ceiling has polarized our nation into those who believe in fiscal responsibility versus those who believe in unlimited spending. Conservatives vs. Socialists. Democrat and Republican appellations haven’t been used because there are conservatives and socialists in each party.
In a scary new venture, Rush Limbaugh has announced publication of a children’s history book, “Rush Revere and the Brave Pilgrims,” intended to correct what he and his fellow troglodytes consider historical distortions in currently used school books. Having bamboozled millions of angry, racist old white men, Limbaugh is expanding his propaganda victims.

With a mile left, and a substantial lead, Dani Jones was starting to feel a little off when the Desert Vista junior got the inspiration she needed.
Halloween is upon us. Of course, whether you’re navigating the dark corridors of a “haunted house” or just dealing with the “creepy” characters coming to your door demanding candy, you’re probably not too fearful of the sights of the season.

In its sedulous efforts to accelerate the already rapid dumbing of America, Fox News is intensifying its suppression of economic facts. In John Stossel, Fox evidently has a sincere but stupid dispenser of preposterous misinformation.
The smell of grass, the sound of sprinklers and the shade of three large ficus trees have all disappeared from Arthur and Jeananne Pastin’s yard. Instead, barrel cacti, red bird of paradise shrubs and palo verde trees sprout from gray- and brown-flecked granite gravel.
Q: Is the government too big and powerful? Does a one-legged duck swim in circles?
America’s middle class used to be the proud backbone of our economy. They made things, things of value that other people would pay for. Not only did the middle class prosper, they were the driver of America’s emergence as the world’s economic superpower.
A simple story told with economy, "Wadjda" is a notable example of old-school, humanistic filmmaking. It's also genuinely groundbreaking: the first feature shot entirely in Saudi Arabia, and the first film directed by a Saudi woman.

PHOENIX — Citing everything from grazing to insects, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Monday granted endangered species protection to two cacti found in Arizona.
Last May, our LD 18 legislators acted like Republicans. I guess I should say they acted to represent the Republican Party that I grew up with. I grew up with John Rhodes, Paul Fannin, Barry Goldwater and Sandra Day O’Connor, to name a few, leading the Republican Party. Sen. John McComish, Rep. Bob Robson and Rep. Jeff Dial represented us by voting to support our Kyrene School District. These education votes directly and positively affect our property values. Charter school choice aside, strong neighborhood schools directly affect whether or not our personal property is valued or not.

DiCiccio and his staff report that Shipley’s work ethic and commitment to conservative principles will not only benefit Councilman DiCiccio but also District 6 and the City of Phoenix.
The media, both traditional and digital, play a vital role in society. In its truest form, the role of the media is to inform the general public about events and issues that affect them. They are the protector of our First Amendment right to free speech and should serve as an objective watchdog of the government. They bring to light positive stories about our communities, call attention to issues that we need to be concerned about and of course, make sure we know what our favorite sports teams are up to and what the weather will be like over the next few days.
The Arizona Game and Fish Commission is soliciting nominations for the 2013 annual Commission Awards, recognizing individuals, organizations, foundations or government agencies who have contributed significantly to the conservation of the state’s wildlife, its outdoor heritage, and the mission of the Arizona Game and Fish Department.
You’ll want to find and sign one of those petitions against Arizona’s implementation of Obamacare. You’ll be glad you did. A fragile economic recovery here in the Valley is now in jeopardy with the recent passage of the law.
