"You hear nothing. You see nothing. You only serve." Such are the instructions Cecil Gaines receives as he embarks on his daunting new job at the Eisenhower White House in "Lee Daniels' The Butler."
The Major League Baseball All-Star Game has been a special summer night ever since the 1981 exhibition was a game that never came.
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.
Early in President’s Obama’s presidency some critiques of the president were claiming he was traveling around the world on what they called an “apology tour,” but nothing can be farther from the truth. Looking back, yes, President Obama seemed to be uneasy when meeting some world leaders, but no one can deny the fact that his presidency has taken on our foes with a precise and deadly intensity.
History is one of our greatest teachers.
Did you catch The Rev. Jesse Jackson the other night on CNN demanding a Senate hearing into why regulators never cracked down on that gruesome abortion clinic in Philadelphia?
Claiming the measures target minorities, some groups are threatening to sue if lawmakers adopt new restrictions on early voting and who can take someone else's ballot to the polls.
No public figure has clearly articulated the true lesson from the 10th anniversary of the disastrous Iraq War. That lesson is a matter of logic. In weighing the war’s costs and benefits, we reversed the burden of proof. The war’s proponents should have been presumed guilty until proven innocent. Instead, the Bush Administration reversed that proper criterion, generally supported by the national press in placing the burden on skeptics.
Arizona high schoolers may soon be rid of having to pass AIMS -- or any standardized test -- to graduate.
Whatever valid points Michael Reagan may have had (“The real answer to the immigration question,” AFN, March 8) was lost on me by his persistent need to be snarky, referring to the President as the “golfer in chief” and “part-time President.” While it is arguable that no President gets days off, Mr. Obama took 131 vacation days in his first term, including weekends at Camp David. That would put him on pace for 262 by the time he completes his second term, right around the average and 1/4 the “time off” of his predecessor.
America has almost 12 million illegal immigrants.
It's supposed to be a parody of itself, right?
In response to the Guest Commentary by Robert O’Meara (“A shadow in the hallway near the Lincoln Bedroom,” AFN, Jan. 30), even a cursory search of Wikipedia reveals that President Bill Clinton has been quite busy since his time in office. While I am not his biggest fan, one needs to look beyond partisanship and respect peoples’ accomplishments.
State lawmakers are making another bid to shorten the time that individuals and groups have to put issues on the ballot.
My view of president Obama’s vision and leadership abilities have continued to decline as his time in office has increased. Here is a man who has had an historic opportunity … nearly of Mount Rushmore proportions … to lead the country to a better place, yet his second inaugural speech confirmed his parochial vision and the likelihood that his legacy will be one of great orator and adept politician … and not that much more.
Gov. Jan Brewer said Monday she needs to be convinced that the bipartisan plan of U.S. senators for immigration reform will have real teeth.
Another paranoid, delusional letter to the editor (“President Obama’s evil agenda,” by Lawrence J. McLennan III, AFN, Jan. 9) was a comedic recital of untruths and hyperbole without a single fact to back them up, but plenty of bombastic opinions masquerading as truth.
Gov. Jan Brewer can't put a specific definition on what it means to have a secure border.
Of course only law enforcement and military should be allowed the possession of assault rifles. And, of course, alcohol should never be served to drivers. Never. And, illegal drugs should be kept away from everyone. Period. Anything that kills should be hidden from the mentally ill, the angry, the bullies, the too-young-to-know-any-better.
You can’t fix stupid, but you can fix ignorant or, perhaps, political insanity.
You know the education system is broken when...
Columnist Linda Turley-Hansen has written a couple of pieces lately, exhorting us to vote in the upcoming presidential election. In one, she ended with this: Our choice was either socialism or freedom (guess who the socialist is?). In her more recent one, she tells us to vote because Obama is killing the coal industry. In other words, a second Obama term is Apocalypse Now.
President Obama was supposed to be all about hope and change.
At first Mountain Pointe had trouble finding an opponent for its football scrimmage and then it appeared to have landed at Central in Phoenix along with Peoria Sunrise Mountain.
NORFOLK, Va. (AP) — Mitt Romney introduced Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin as his Republican vice presidential running mate on Saturday, turning to the architect of a deeply conservative and intensely controversial long-term budget plan that would remake Medicare and cut trillions in federal spending.
