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. According to Limbaugh, children shouldn’t be taught about our broken Indian treaties; our former dictator-propping foreign policy; and similarly unpleasant historical facts.
Even my own mother scoffed at the idea of her obviously European-looking daughter confessing she celebrated Día De Los Muertos.
Tom Hanks didn’t know where the cameras were.

Even if everything Secretary of State John Kerry says about chemical weapons in Syria were true, the evidence would prove only that Bashar al-Assad committed crimes against civilians. It would not prove that the U.S. government has either the moral or legal authority to commit acts of war.
In the 2012 presidential campaign, President Obama claimed Detroit as evidence of his successful policies: “We refused to let Detroit go bankrupt. We bet on American workers and American ingenuity and, three years later, that is paying off in a big way.”
"2 Guns?" Please. There are enough guns in this movie to arm a small country. Maybe a medium-sized one.
Arizona schools need more money and it’s time for the governor and lawmakers to provide it, state School Superintendent John Huppenthal said Thursday.

You’ve gotta hand it to Republican Gov. Jan Brewer. She cleverly played her politics over the past few months as she made her puzzling shift toward Obamacare in order to expand Medicaid, making Arizona the 24th state to do so.
The other day while running errands, I was listening to ESPN Radio (yes, women like ESPN too) and it was a story on violence in youth sports. Because my sons are young, I guess I hadn’t paid much attention to the growing trend of violence in youth sports. After listening to the story and doing research on my own, I am disheartened by how some parents act during their kid’s sports activities.
When executives of corporations are caught aiding and abetting criminal behavior of their employees, the executives are prosecuted and the businesses are destroyed.
If you grew up in the early 90s, you probably remember an animated feature from 20th Century Fox called “FernGully: The Last Rainforest.” It was the environmentally-conscious movie every 90s kid saw, and yet, nobody really liked. The film’s intentions might have been good, but even the youngest children seemed to find its blatant green message overly preachy. The fact that “FernGully” was lacking in any interesting characters or magic didn’t help. “Epic,” which was also coincidentally distributed by Fox, is a bit like “FernGully” if it had smarter, more imaginative filmmakers backing it. While it’s not a massive improvement, “Epic” is at least fun, energized, and subtle with its environmental themes.
As we survey the panoply of absurd ideas our legislators, both state and national, face from special interest groups these days, we have to wonder what has become of that rare commodity: common sense.
The first image you see in "The Place Beyond the Pines" is of Ryan Gosling's shirtless torso, ripped and tatted atop a skin-tight pair of leather pants.
Harmony Korine seems to want it both ways, all day, with "Spring Breakers," his super-stylized descent into a sunbaked hell where bikini-clad, gun-toting college babes serve as our guides.
America has almost 12 million illegal immigrants.
Six years ago, Janine Skinner was a mother of three who was reentering the workforce. Some of the return was financial: the aforementioned kids were just a few years away from college. While serving as a youth event chaperone, she was introduced to Minnesota-based Feed My Starving Children (FMSC). That was the beginning of a six-year whirlwind.
By now it's clear that nothing and no one can kill Bruce Willis, whose fifth film in the "Die Hard" franchise, the horribly titled "A Good Day to Die Hard," opened last week.
‘One day Alice came to a fork in the road and saw a Cheshire cat in a tree. Which road do I take? She asked. Where do you want to go? was his response. I don’t know, Alice answered. Then, said the cat, it doesn’t matter.”
In Netflix’s bid for a flagship original drama of its own — a “Sopranos” to its HBO — the subscription streaming service is presenting a high-class adaptation of a British political thriller offered up all at once, with its first season immediately ready for TV-viewing gluttony.
As we start 2013, let’s reflect on the beginning of our nation and the moral and religious beliefs of the Pilgrim settlers of 1620. The Pilgrims were Puritans, a group of English Protestants who had become unhappy with the corruption in the Church of England and the English laws which controlled the practice of religion. At that time (1620), other religions weren’t represented. There were no Buddhists, Zoroastrians, Jews, or Muslims. Only Christians who wanted freedom of religion. Not freedom from religion, but freedom of religion.
We’re battle worn. The past two years of campaigns were no less hostile than Hurricane Sandy. Election pundits tell us we’re a nation divided and stuck in this place. All the while, the critical mass of the big government crowd has taken control. We’ve been told this day would come, and it has.
A fiction novel that takes readers into the depths of corruption in government and frustrated consumers ready to handle it in extreme ways may not be far off from the truth, according to Ahwatukee Foothills resident Dan Tamblo.
