I streamed the first State of the State address given by Gov. Doug Ducey. In general, it was a very vanilla kick off to the new session. Rhetoric on taxes, education and administrative agenda; all intended to guide the Legislature on where to focus their bill-making powers.

Our currency is being debased by the Federal Reserve and the administration, and it has been debased for quite a while. When the Federal Reserve lowers its Fed rate to zero, as it has, and credit expansion occurs, the dollar is debased.
A recent (guest commentary) writer, Sean Bowie (“With great power comes great responsibility, AFN, Dec., 19), is familiar with the answer to the question — denial. Bowie creates many reasons for the failures of the Democrats in the last election and avoids identifying any mistakes by his party. While this pattern of denial provides encouragement and hope for partisan Republicans, these delusions do not provide the state or the country with any hope that the next two years will bring us any closer to the solution of the many problems we face.
PHOENIX -- Jan Brewer is not sorry for signing bills authorizing tax cuts that will reduce state revenues by hundreds of millions of dollars over the next few years.

The work ethic and attitude of a candidate is indicative of the legislator that he or she will be. I have had the pleasure of working with Jill Norgaard over the past months on her campaign for the Arizona House of Representatives in Legislative District 18. I have witnessed firsthand her tireless commitment to reach voters, business leaders, and the community at large to share her vision for a better Arizona.
The pansies and sexual deviants, funded and pimped by the Democrat Party, and aided and abetted by that great socialist propaganda machine, the American “education” system, have plunged the United States into total decline...
The Republican candidates were nowhere to be found at the Clean Elections debate for Legislative District 18 Thursday night, but Democrats Janie Hydrick and Mitzi Epstein took the opportunity to share their vision of a bipartisan Arizona legislature focused on education.

In the Sept. 24 issue of this newspaper, Carol Sampson made a cogent and impassioned plea to support Democrat candidates David Garcia for superintendent of education, Janie Hydrick for the state Senate and for Mitzi Epstein for the House.
