WASHINGTON — It's a big question for marketers: What kind of a buyer are you? And, as important, what are you willing to pay?

Advocates for Comprehensive Immigration Reform (English translation: amnesty) like to point out that immigrants in the past have flocked to America and made important contributions to our nation. That’s true, but the America of 1913 was different from 2013 in ways that greatly affect the probability that immigrants will become contributing citizens.
PHOENIX — Twice defeated in congressional races and rebuffed by voters in his bid to change election laws, radio station owner Rick Murphy is now trying to become the state's chief executive.
PHOENIX — A new poll suggests that Arizona voters insist they're mad as hell and are ready to throw the current crop of bums out of Congress. But it remains to be seen whether the anger at government dysfunction carries through to next year's general election — and whether voters find the alternatives they are offered are any better.

Congressional Republicans announced over the weekend that they intend to target and remove the ACA, which they derisively call Obamacare. Has no Republican strategist pointed out to this awful party that it has put itself in a ‘lose-lose big’ dilemma? They lost trying to destroy the ACA, and Americans are poised with daggers awaiting the 2014 elections. However, the ‘lose big’ part of the equation would occur if they actually succeeded in destroying the ACA. How do they plan to replace tens of millions of voters who find that our sick health care system has been returned to the bad old days before President Obama offered them a breath of hope and fresh air? It’s a t-publican elevator with only one button: DOWN.
PHOENIX — Counties have verified there are enough valid signatures on petitions to give voters the last word on extensive changes in election laws pushed through the Republican-controlled Legislature.

The City of Gilbert has an override vote for public education coming up in November. It is quite disturbing that radicals again are putting up signs saying “Destroy Public Education”. Gilbert used to have a very good reputation that citizens of Gilbert were quite proud of. As a 25-year resident I am very disturbed that these radicals that are now in public offices are going to ruin the once outstanding reputation that Gilbert once had.
“Sen. John McCain thinks if his party commits suicide it’s everyone else’s fault. Is this the kind of mentality we want running this country? That’s why we are where we are. Refusal to accept responsibility for anything including their own incompetent suicide. Gerrymandering makes them feel as invulnerable as the man of steel and free to thumb their nose at the rest of the country.”
No matter how the latest D.C. follies end, one thing’s clear:
I have always been a conservative and, accordingly, have little common ground with either Republicans or Democrats. However, I have always had the greatest respect for the democratic process and majority rule. A majority of Americans, when disregarding political affiliation, generally make decisions that are best for America, and the current shutdown does not reflect majority rule.
The Grand Canyon National Park is set to reopen Saturday.
“Interesting how the President, who said he WILL NOT negotiate, is belittling the GOP for not negotiating!”
