LOS ANGELES — There's this weirdly unfounded reputation that just about everyone in Los Angeles is vegan and therefore sunbaked Angelenos only feast on the likes of kale and quinoa. Such a stereotype is antithetical to the City of Angels' unhealthy obsession with the hamburger, an ongoing between-two-buns preoccupation that's birthed hundreds of Southern California burger joints.
“If corporations are people too, and should have religious rights, how come the Bible has never spoke of a corporation making it to heaven in the form of a holy spirit. It’s an insult to all those who believe and makes their prayers seem cheap.”

Capitol Burgers, an old-school hamburger stand in a not-so-glitzy part of town, has been dishing out unadulterated burgers and fries since 1965. Capitol owner George Stamos was crafting burgers for folks their way, right away. Stamos died earlier this year, but his family has kept the griddle fired up in honor of their patriarch who originally immigrated to the United States from Greece. (AP Photo/Damian Dovarganes)
“I wonder just how thick the lefts rose colored glasses have to be before they can finally see just how deceitful this administration is?”
Arizona Senators Jeff Flake and John McCain fielded questions and comments — both positive and negative in nature — about the Affordable Care Act and addressed other issues at a town hall event in Mesa on Nov. 25.
“Why do some people think that human rights and civil rights are the same thing? Everyone has human rights, just by being human. Civil rights are the rights of a person who has legal citizenship to a specific country. If you are not a citizen, then you do not have the privileges of these civil rights. Civil rights activists should be backing the rights of citizens not the illegal immigrants, who have only human rights.”
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 — A call Thursday by President Obama on the Republican-controlled House to approve immigration reform this year is getting a decidedly cool reception from Gov. Jan Brewer.
When this government shutdown is over, and Congress gets back to work, I hope they look at themselves in the mirror and ask themselves what exactly was accomplished.
Robert Rodriguez's "Machete Kills" is a sequel based on an end-credits joke from a film that was itself based on a joke trailer contained within a half-joke grindhouse homage. Exactly how many degrees such an endeavor is removed from anything resembling serious cinema would require Jean Baudrillard to calculate, yet for more immediate filmgoing purposes, all there is to see here is a surprisingly long-lived gag finally running out of gas. As violent as its predecessor yet noticeably duller and less outrageous, "Machete Kills" is dragged to the finish line entirely by its director's madcap energy and an absurd cast of major stars in strange cameos.
PHOENIX — A federal appeals court on Tuesday ruled Arizona cannot enforce yet another provision of its controversial 2010 law aimed at illegal immigration.
A federal judge on Wednesday ordered the appointment of an independent monitor and a community advisory board to ensure that an Arizona sheriff is complying with constitutional requirements after finding his office engages in racial profiling.

“So, they had a nasty shooting in D.C. on Monday. I wonder how that can happen. I thought the liberals banned owning guns there. Another ‘gun free’ zone! Yeah the law abiding are disarmed while the criminals are free to mow them down. The liberal mind set baffles me!”
Lisa Pino’s intention always was to enter public service upon graduation from law school at Arizona State University, and she has done so in many different arenas.
As African-American males in Arizona, we are stunned, though not altogether surprised, at the bold assumptions, presumptions, and downright racist stereotypes Linda Turley-Hansen offers in “Not racism, and not guns; it’s moral absence that’s doing the killing” (East Valley Tribune, Sept. 1; also available at evtnow.com/5ua).
U.S. Sen. John McCain faced a tough crowd largely opposed to military action in Syria during a town hall meeting Thursday in Phoenix.
Since President Reagan’s “Open Gate” in 1986, it was estimated that we had 11 million so-called “illegal immigrants” in the country. According to present statistics I am reading, we still have 11 million on board. One would think we have done a great job in “closing the gate.” Reagan always used the term “fuzzy math.” I wonder who is doing the math on those statistics. It reminds me of the 1950s toothpaste commercial which claimed “nine out of 10 doctors recommend ‘brand X’ toothpaste.” An investigation revealed that the doctors were gynecologists. Fuzzy math again. We don’t know who and what to believe coming out of Washington.
A federal judge delayed a ruling in the racial profiling case against Sheriff Joe Arpaio's office Friday as both sides remain at odds over key remedies to ensure the agency adheres to constitutional requirements.

Once a staple of pre-World War II culture, the multi-generational household is staging a comeback.
I found that going to a Matt Salmon town hall Meeting is a test in real frustration. He tells his constituents what a great job he is doing. Then he proceeds to tell us how he is continuing to fight to “defund” Obamacare, which as we all know is a waste of time and our taxpayer dollars.
Arizona Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake will speak about immigration issues at a town hall event in Mesa on Aug. 27.
Tough-talking Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio is warning civilians who embark on armed patrols in remote desert terrain that they could end up with "30 rounds fired into" them by one of his deputies.
