“As a seasonal visitor, who invested in Arizona real estate, pays money in sales tax for six months and high prices for food, I think I have a right to live here part time. Sorry there are full times residents that don’t appreciate the financial support! I think the stores and restaurants wouldn’t agree!”

“Dear snowbirds: Thank you for coming to our cities. Thank you for spending your hard earned money here. Thank you for eating in our restaurants, shopping in our stores, buying or renting our homes, and improving our economy. Thank you for stopping me in the store and telling me how cute my children are. We appreciate what you add to our towns!”

“With Santorum’s withdrawal, the battle between conservatives and corporations for the Republican Party’s future has been decisively won by big business.”

“Jessica Vega of Goshen, N.Y. told everyone that she was dying of cancer. Kind-hearted friends, neighbors and even strangers donated gifts to make her upcoming wedding and honeymoon really special. Then they found out that she had lied about the cancer and fraudulently bilked them all out of thousands of dollars. Come to Arizona, Jessica! You’d fit right in at our state legislature! Or maybe you could work for MCSO.”

“Give the Keystone pipeline to a startup oil company. Break up the mega oil cartel. If the GOP wants a lead to the past lead us back to gas wars and not class wars.”

“I just heard that Andrew Thomas was disbarred for his despicable behavior, costing Maricopa (County) taxpayers millions of dollars and wasted time trying to bully judges, supervisors, and administrators into submission. Good job! I must say, this couldn’t have happened to a ‘nicer’ guy... unless, of course, we are talking about another bully, Joe Arpaio.”

“My goodness what a conundrum exists in the Wal-Mart killing. The suspect being pictured is wearing a hoodie, heaven forbid he be a person of color. Due to the ‘supposed’ constitutionality of the suspects rights, law enforcement are now looking for a male of a certain height and weight, wearing long pants only, no other description details permitted as reasonable grounds for detention. That would be considered profiling which is apparently no longer acceptable in this country to solve crimes, especially murder. Had there been an officer on site who’d only seen the suspect from the rear or profile view, he would have been best to allow the suspect to flee or face dire consequences regarding violations of civil rights.”
