“I am so angry I will not vote for a Republican candidate this year unless a Democrat is running against him or her.”

“On my daily bicycle ride, it takes me past the Boeing plant. July the 5th was awesome as I didn’t have to hold my breath from Higley to the underpass on McDowell as all of the Boeing smokers were off for the July 4th weekend. I vote that Boeing gives them more paid holidays so it doesn’t feel like I just smoked a pack of cigarettes when passing on my bicycle.”

“To all of you who are so concerned about who will pick our lettuce and who will pick our oranges, etc.: Well, the answer is the same person who picks your nose. You, get off your lazy butts and mow your yard, trim your trees.

I’m sure you don’t have a clue, that work never killed anyone.”

“The government is using our tax money to sue our state and is causing Arizona to have to spend money to defend the law instead of helping to resolve the problem.  Just imagine how many National Guardsmen could be sent to secure the border and how many miles of fence could be built with the money.”

“I see the Mesa Fire Department personnel are still driving their big red and white trucks to the grocery stores every day.  Why is this practice still permitted?”

“Those calling tea partiers “gun-toting, anti-government tea-baggers” ignorantly parrot the liberal media and are clueless of who tea party people are and what they stand for. Sadly, name calling is so much easier than seeking out truth.”

“What is wrong with our society?  Lindsay Lohan, a drug addict/drunk, is the Fox News new money maker.  Doesn’t Fox News understand that most of us could care less about a spoiled brat like her? What about all the young ladies her age serving our country over in Iraq?  We never hear anything about them.”

“Covance is still here and the world hasn’t come to an end.  How can that be?”
