“I think it is a shame that the human resources department at Mesa Public Schools requires applicants to call for a screening interview, but then don’t answer the phone or return messages. I hope Mr. Cowan will have a conversation with these people to stress the importance of professionalism within the district if they are to attract the top teachers available.”

What! Someone wants to raise the legislators’ salaries!? With all the inane bills they’ve passed or tried to pass the past few years, I thought they were paying us for taking up space.”

“It would seem we’re in the process of raising more Democrats these days. Out of four monetary graduation gifts sent to high school and college graduates in response to their announcements, we’ve not received one thank you or confirmation from the graduate nor their parents. Oh well, I guess we can assume it’s just another entitlement.”

“Republicans say Obamacare is the reason for a sluggish economy, and mandating health insurance is unconstitutional. If that’s the case, workmans comp is unconstitutional. It causes an unneccessary drain on all business and also needs to be repealed. Or is all this just another Republican double standard.

“(There was) good and bad on the governor’s trip to Paris. The bad: well, she was unsuccessful in trying to sell Arizona-baked Albertson’s ‘French Bread’ to the Parisians. The good: as of today, the Parisians have yet to declare war on Arizona.”

“Gov. Jan Brewer caught a lot of complaints for wagging her finger in the face of the president. I wonder if Obama will get the same for wagging his finger in the face of America?”

“I wonder if Mitt Romney’s idea of an economic ‘safety net’ includes this scenario: Six unrelated adults living in a two-bedroom apartment. Not all of their names are on the lease and only one of them has a job that pays more than $10 an hour.”

“Some of us can still remember when the good nuns and sisters of the Catholic Church lived a holy life in the convent, wore habits and made vows of poverty, chastity and obedience to the Pope. Nowadays, the good nuns and sisters live a secular life out in society, wear regular clothes and while still vowing to live in relative poverty and chastity, have forgone the vow of obedience to His Holiness. Their new vow of obedience is to illegal alien amnesty, social engineering, gay marriage, abortion on demand and Obama’s ‘universal’ health care. I fear that most are now suffering from an incurable dose of Whoopi Goldberg’s ‘Sister Act-tivisim-itis.’”

“You know it’s hilarious what comes out out of the mouth of some people, like ‘I’ve dabbled in witchcraft,’ or ‘there are 80 communists in Congress.’ You wonder how these politicians get into these positions with so much power and influence over other people, then it doesn’t seem so funny. It becomes scary when the leadership fails to correct the crazies. Maybe politicians need a psychological evaluation more than troops returning from war.”
