“In regards to the property tax increases in Arizona, I would love to see a proposition like Prop. 13 in California go into effect as soon as possible. People actually would be able to put food on the table. At this rate, we’re going to be taxed to death.”

“Three cheers for (Rep.) Ed Pastor. Finally somebody from Arizona who represents us is trying to get money to run train lines through this state.”

“To the genius venter who thinks all cars in Europe get 44 miles to the gallon, I have a few things he needs to listen to: Lamborghini, Ferrari, Porsche, Bentley, Rolls Royce.”

“I just read in the Vent about using chiropractors to treat scoliosis. I can tell you as someone that does have scoliosis and is also using a chiropractor that it does not cure it. It may relieve it, but it will never cure it.”

“I find it almost impossible to believe that the governor had no knowledge of the neglect and potential abuses at Arizona State Veterans (Home). I think (co-chief of staff) Alan Stephens has been chosen to fall on the sword for the governor.”

“How soon we forget. We should thank Janet Napolitano every day. Thank you, thank you, thank you, Janet, for being such a wonderful governor.”

“The arrogant countries of Britain and America have no business putting ships into the Persian Gulf. I would hate to see the reaction of Bush and Blair if Iranian ships appear in the English Channel or the Gulf of Mexico.”

“Why doesn’t someone remind President Bush and Vice President Cheney that some Republican (lawmakers) went to Syria and visited with Assad a week before Pelosi did?”

“Nancy Pelosi has gotten more done in one day than Condoleezza Rice and George Bush put together in the past five years.”

“There’s a new dance in Washington, D.C.; it’s called the $100 Flop. Female dancer Nancy Pelosi and male dancer Harry Reid. The dance is a failure, however, because neither dancer will stop yakking and neither has a clue how to lead.”

“To the venter who likes chickens (Vent, Thursday). If I had a neighbor with 10 chickens running loose, I’d be eating chickens and so would my dog.”

“Rosie O’Donnell is the new Jane Fonda. And she’s so vain, she probably thinks that’s a compliment.”

“Why are so many seniors complaining that they can’t get along? Didn’t they know they were going to retire? Can’t they count? Don’t they have a calendar?”

“Regarding when you let people cut in and they don’t wave, traffic is so horrendous nowadays you had better keep both hands on the steering wheel and your eyes on traffic in the road.”

“I always wonder when I hear people railing against developers if they ever stop to think where their house came from?”

“To the venter who wonders why John McCain doesn’t resign from the Senate to run for president, he forgot Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden, John Kerry and all the other Democrats.”

“John McCain is apparently geographically challenged. Last time I checked, he represents Bagdad, Ariz., not Baghdad, Iraq.”
