WASHINGTON — Side by side, leading Democratic and Republican senators pledged Monday to propel far-reaching immigration legislation through the Senate by summer providing a possible path to citizenship for an estimated 11 million people now in the U.S. illegally.
Gov. Jan Brewer can't put a specific definition on what it means to have a secure border.
Marilyn Monroe. The Rolling Stones. And Bond — James Bond. What do they have in common?
A lot of people like to make predictions on what is going to happen. Too few of us take responsibility for their successes and, yes, their failures. Here is what I forecast on December 23, 2011 followed by what actually happened and my report card:
Arizona's 11 Republican electors formally cast their votes Monday for Mitt Romney -- but not before three of them, including the state party chairman, said questions remain about whether Barack Obama is a natural born citizen.
Republican Party Chairman Tom Morrissey and John Rhodes, sign Electoral College papers casting their vote for Mitt Romney. Both men, along with a third of Arizonan's 11 electors, said they have doubts about President Obama's birth certificate and his right to serve. (Capitol Media Services photo by Howard Fischer)
I am curious about Gov. Jan Brewer’s recent trip to Afghanistan. When she returned, she said her opinion on the planned withdrawal from Afghanistan has changed. She said, “Whatever their judgment is, is something I would have no reservations with.”
I am so tempted to write the words “I told you so” over and over again up to the 500-word limit allowed for a commentary in this newspaper. It would be so easy to gloat about how liberals won and conservatives lost. It would make me giddy to point out how Arizona is so out-of-touch with the rest of the Left Coast.
Stan Way, a Latter-day Saint from Jasper, Ala., had just finished dinner out with some Mormon missionaries when he noticed a car slowing as it approached.
You can’t fix stupid, but you can fix ignorant or, perhaps, political insanity.
With the re-election of Barack Obama, we witnessed the driving of the last nail into the coffin of the United States of America. We have allowed the “takers” of this country to take control. This all began with Franklin Roosevelt and will end with Barack Obama.
Between traumatic experiences of late — whether it be Hurricane Sandy, the Aurora shootings, or a local tragedy in our family or neighborhood — are the everyday places where we dwell most often and try to make sense of our lives. As Americans ponder and strategize how not to plunge over the fiscal cliff back into economic recession, it is imperative that we arrive at plans and strategies within the context of a more complicated and nuanced sense of how we define and live our lives.
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.
Hundreds of high school students from across the state wore their best Wall Street attire at the Sheraton Downtown Phoenix last week to compete in the Student Stock Market Challenge.

My reason for writing is that if President Barack Obama is not re-elected he would be disappointed, but overall he and his family would be OK. Now the rest of us, millions of us that depend on the president to champion the causes of the middle class, the small business man, the elderly, education, etc., would be at risk to be diminished.
I’m standing with Sen. John McComish for this election.
The Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce will host “Health Care Reform: What’s the Prognosis for Your Business?,” on Nov. 14.
Marx, Lenin and Engels “struck gold” with progressive tax rates. Progressive rates allow government to “hide the ball.” Those taxpayers in the lower tax brackets believe they pay little or no tax. So, they are ambivalent about government taxing the “rich.” In fact, the “poor” might believe that the “rich” need to pay more; unfortunately, that understanding is flawed.
With Biden and Ryan’s debate behind us, the nation is still asking, “What happened to Obama?” in his first debate and can he fix it in the next round?
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.
I think I’m one of the few, if any, who actually enjoy getting political calls or knocks on my door.
Smoked Jerky, Beef, Turkey, or Cajun: Buy 1 pound get 1 pound free of equal or less value. Expires Nov. 4.
Just months after getting her lemonade stand off the ground to benefit the Arizona Humane Society, middle school student Megan Hansen is lending a hand to the USA Clydesdales Society this weekend.
