As you survey the political landscape, what do you see? Support for capitalism and liberty or an intransigent proclivity for control and political power? Intellectual pragmatism or crony capitalism? The truth of history or the lies of an imaginary future? The support of economic growth or the oppressive regulations of socialism?
With time running short, the nation’s health care rolls still aren’t filling up fast enough.
Reactionary Republicans — notably Rush Limbaugh — condemning the Senate’s limitation on filibustering as unconstitutional have, once again, displayed their colossal political ignorance. There is only a single clause, “Each House may determine its own rules,” (Art. I, Sect. 5) remotely concerned with filibusters, and it neither approves nor disapproves of them. The Senate’s action on filibusters was undeniably constitutional to anyone with high-school reading comprehension.
Dec. 14 marks the one-year anniversary of the tragic shootings at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. After that tragedy the entire country wanted to know how such a terrible thing could happen. And more importantly, how can we prevent it from ever happening again?

I can’t imagine being a Child Protective Services (CPS) caseworker. But I can imagine why most of those men and women went into those jobs: an idealistic view that their work could make a difference in children’s lives, maybe save some kids from horrible fates, maybe find ways to change a dysfunctional family into a loving one.
Supporters of the Independent Redistricting Commission want a federal court to rule that the Arizona Legislature has no right to challenge the voter-approved law.

Just a few weeks ago, Kyrene School District experienced a clear election victory for both the continuation of our Maintenance and Operations Override and our second ballot question to allow our governing board to lease, sell or exchange real property (our vacant land). We appreciate this strong vote of confidence and message of support from our community. While Kyrene has a total of 25 schools, 12 of them are in Ahwatukee, educating more than 8,000 students and employing nearly 500 staff members (many who live in the community).
Harry Reid invoked the so called “Nuclear Option” — a critical change in the rules of the Senate that provided a voice for the minority party. When Obama had control of the House and the Senate we saw him ram through Obamacare. Obama has three more years to exercise his agenda but is fearful that he may actually lose control of the Senate in 2014 due to the public backlash against Obamacare. His burning agenda is to stack the D.C. court with left-wing judges and place more liberals in key positions within the government. He has stated that he feels these nominees are being held up by the GOP via filibuster. So, getting rid of this provision allows Obama to act with impunity in regards to nominees thus ensuring that he can place liberals in any position he wishes.

The state’s jobless rate dropped last month — but just a bit — indicating that Arizona’s recovery is languishing.
When thinking of health care one must remember that Obamacare uses Cost Benefit Analysis when deciding how to treat you. This means that different options for treatment are considered, but cost and age are plugged into their equation to determine, not what is best for you, but what Obamacare is going to do. They select the cheapest option for your care. They have a limit on the treatment cost. It is something like $22,000 for six months.
Thanksgiving. A holiday started long ago that currently finds its way into homes of pumpkin scents, laced around glazed turkeys, cranberry sauce, and good-ole mashed potatoes. Yet the Thanksgiving holiday is not just seen as a time to celebrate that we all love to eat, and the food coma we eventually fall into afterwards, but a day to stop and think about what we are truly thankful for.
I was born on Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 25, 1926. I tell people I came out of a turkey but I’ve been trying to fly like an eagle all my life. So you can imagine my thoughts if God gave me one wish before I check out.
