“Christine Jones says no amnesty for illegals. Methinks she need to sign up for the Duceys’ class on civics since the governor doesn’t have that power.”
Talk about back to the future.
An open letter to Congress: Here is how to fix the growing border crisis. Come back to D.C., forget that month-long, do-nothing vacation, do your jobs and repeal the 2008 law that is creating this mess. Yes, a law passed by a Republican Congress and signed by G.W. Bush. So all you righties, stop the blame game and look at your own. The GOP created this mess in 2008. Furthermore, we the people are to blame for the all bozos we send to Washington, left, middle and right. After all, they are just a mere reflection of our own personal dysfunctions. I take blame for voting for the bozos I did. Will you? I seek change, real change. Term limits for one. The president is the only one who is handcuffed by them. Senators and House members need term limits, or gridlock will never end!
Near Mpumalanga, South Africa, are the marvelous and mysterious Echo Caves. Rediscovered in the last century and turned into a tourist site, these caverns are home to a truly remarkable ecosystem. One of the more amazing species found there, is its famous and unique wild fig trees. As far as plant life goes, these fig trees appear to be normal run-of-the-mill fruit bushes. What makes them so famous is the unseen: Their roots. Researchers and spelunking scientists have followed the roots of these trees deep into Echo Caves — 400 feet deep to be precise — the deepest known root system in the world.
A new fruit that research says packs more antioxidants than popular “superfoods” like blueberries, acai berries and goji berries is establishing itself in the aisles of mainstream grocery stores, showing up in everything from juices to powdered supplements to baby food.
Officials are searching for a 43-year-old man who was last seen tubing down the Lower Salt River on Thursday.
An open letter to John Sidney McCain. FYI, John, the Iraqi people lost Iraq, not President Obama. Hell, John, George W. Bush set the timetable to walk away; you are such a tool. John, we were in Iraq for 12-plus years, if after that time a nation can’t stand on its own feet and defend itself, after wasting billions of Americans’ tax dollars propping them up, all for nothing, then we shouldn’t go back.

There is nothing to indicate that Bowe Bergdahl’s behavior in Afghanistan was heroic. For that matter, neither was the behavior of Jessica Lynch, Lori Piestewa, or Patrick Tillman. But they were good soldiers, and that’s more important. The bar of heroism has been lowered substantially by two successive administrations, trying to put lipstick on the Afghanistan pig by showering accolades upon the soldiers fighting it. Any 13-year conflict runs the risk of some stench rubbing off on the soldiers.
Just got through watching another of President Obama’s dog and pony shows on the TV. As usual, his administration was blameless. The VA scandal was all George Bush’s fault. Too many wounded warriors were showing up for their “promised” VA healthcare. Congress was at fault too. Even though he knew of the VA’s “gaming” of the vet’s appointments back in 2009, it still wasn’t his fault. Excuse after excuse, finger pointing after finger pointing, study after study, commission after commission and now President Obama’s right-hand man is going to “look into the situation and report to President Obama directly” so that he has a better picture of what he has known all along. When will we hear President Obama’s inevitable mea culpa “I am the President of the United States and the buck stops here”? He sounds like your PR-groomed, typical, slick, Chicago lawyer (oops, he was a Chicago lawyer ... lol).
PICACHO PEAK STATE PARK — "Excuse me, coming through, sorry, thank you!" I kept repeating loudly and urgently as I hiked up Picacho Peak, which rises like a Western saddle from the endless desert just off I-10 between Phoenix and Tucson.

Rick Perry wraps up a record 14 years on the job, Republican Greg Abbott and Democrat Wendy Davis are both vowing to make public schools a top-line agenda if elected in November. Following through could make public schools a signature issue for a Texas governor as it was under George W. Bush, before he left for the White House and used the state’s testing system as the framework for No Child Left Behind. (AP Photo/Eric Gay, File)

Sugar is a fitting name for this affectionate, energetic, 4-year-old Boxer with the big, brown eye patch. Forget about proper introductions because as soon as she sees you she can barely contain her excitement that she has just found her long lost friend and someone who will most certainly become her life-long friend.
As an Arizona native, I have a love for the desert that just comes naturally. But there is something inside of me that loves greenery, water, colorful flowers and shade. I cannot always hop in the car and drive up north so, I am comforted by the fact that just 30 minutes east of Apache Junction lies the 100-acre Boyce Thompson Arboretum State Park, which boasts the best of the desert as well as many non-native plants.
Honeybee pollination is responsible for successful crop production and annually generates $7 billion for Arizona agriculture, according to a University of Arizona study. One-third of America’s diet is the result of bee pollination and honey and one crop, California almonds, relies on honeybees for pollination, reports the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
It was 50 years ago Barry Goldwater declared “extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice.” The political world gasped and he suffered a crushing defeat in the 1964 presidential election. Today, pundits and the “legacy media” commonly emphasize the importance of keeping those extremists marginalized.

WASHINGTON — U.S. public high schools have reached a milestone, an 80 percent graduation rate. Yet that still means 1 of every 5 students walks away without a diploma.
The iconic comedy duo Cheech & Chong defined an era with their hilariously irreverent, satirical, counter-cultural, no-holds-barred comedy routines.
The language of politics can be fascinating, and in that world of carefully chosen words and deceptive speech, former United States Secretary of Defense, Donald Rumsfeld, was/is one of the best there is at what he does. Now if you think that ‘fascinating’ and ‘politics’ are two words that should never appear together in the same sentence, then you are probably going to bored to tears with the new documentary film, The Unknown Known.
