“I am sick to death of people telling the Gilbert voters they just need to ‘pitch in’ and vote for Prop 406 to increase sales taxes. This recession has been playing ‘hard ball’ with me as I’ve watched my salary shrink by double-digits over the last 2 years. Apparently the unions, Town Council, and the beneficiaries of the taxes think the recession affects only them. It’s their turn to ‘pitch in.’ ”

“Why would a church or its parishioner’s feel they should disrupt the neighborhood by ringing bells? Is bell ringing the way they show praise to god or is it just to bring attention to their church? If the church I went to did this and neighbors complained, I would ask our leaders to stop ringing the bells, they have no value to ring them and to show our love and respect to people and our neighbors. That’s how to promote your religious beliefs, not through unwanted noise.

If you’re not a good neighbor,

I do not want to belong to

your group.”

“What does the AFL-CIO know about banking? Ullico!

That infamous financial arm of the AFL-CIO. What a bunch of hypocrites! The AFL-CIO has as much business telling banks what to do as banks would have telling unions what to do. Do you really expect anyone to believe the AFL-CIO

knows how to create jobs?

Give me a break!”

“Since the Federal government won’t protect Arizonans,

then I am glad that in Arizona we have a legislature and governor that will.”

“I’ve missed out, I’ve never been able to go to a protest, rally or even a tea party, they all fall on work days. As I saw all the people gathered on 4/23/10 at our Capitol, I had one thought. I wonder how many of them are on food stamps and welfare?”

“Concerning the May 18 election to ratchet the sales tax even higher: Why does government deserve a raise every time they mismanage and run out of our money? State, counties and towns are awash in extra cash. They need to chop off the ugly fat

of needless bureaus, departments and offices.”

“The newspapers and news channels seem to print and voice the pro arguments in mass for the tax increases! Where is the coverage for

the opposition in mass?

We need a voice also!”
