How many tax dollars did we spend on this ridiculous assertion by sheriff joe? It seems like every other day here in Arizona is another day of shame and embrassment. Brought to us by the sheriff, state legislators or the governor. The rest of the country see us as a bunch yahoos. Stop already.Apr 22, 2012
I didn't vote for Brewer, nor would I, but she is right on this veto. Just a fundamental difference in what I think government is supposed to do versus what DiCiccio beleives it's purpose is. Also, he often quotes the average salary of Phoenix city employees at 100K without ever providing data to support that assertion, which leads to his conclusion that private enterprise (for profit) could provide services cheaper and more efficiently than those unionized city employees. He's been on this anti-union rant for quite awhile...teachers, city workers, et al. Suggesting too, that rather than workers of all stripes strive for better working conditions, higher wages to keep pace with inflation, and the health benefit packages that collective bargining provides, that instead, individuals should not want those things and I guess, be thankful they even have a job. Huh?May 7, 2011
Diane, the poll you quote that says 20% of Americans believe Obama is a Muslim could be the same percentage of Americans that beleive the earth is flat. What significance could a thinking person give either poll? Looks to me that Christians like yourself are the pot, calling Muslims black. You are both just as deadly certain that your root assumptions are all there is. You call it faith, but would actually like to govern our country based on your assumption. No thanks.Oct 28, 2010
I'm skeptical of McCain's view that Republicans will win enough seats (60 to overcome Presidential veto) to repeal and replace Health Care reform or that he actually believes that it would be politicaly prudent to even try. It's just red meat for a base, that seemingly always votes in a way that is against their best interests. Good luck, John, trying to get seniors to vote for re-opening the donut hole. Hello, pot on accusing the administration of using the immigration issue for political purposes...SB 1070 is nothing but a poorly thought out political ploy by Republicans to discredit the Obama administration. Certainly, there must be Republican lawyers versed in constituional law. How silly to complain about the federal government not doing it's job when he and his sidekick Kyl are part of the federal government.Jul 13, 2010
Great letter. Why more people don't see the mean intent and ramifications of such a law, I don't understand. If allowed to go into law, we as Arizonan's, will rue the day. Right now, it's just the folks who crafted this legislation and supported it , that will suffer the shame. I find it humorous that our senators in their support, tell us that the federal government (last time I checked that's them) hasn't done their job. Real world, when you don't do your job, you get replaced.Jul 12, 2010
