Arizona needs a leader who will stand up for veterans. Our men and women in uniform are coming home in droves. Phoenix has been the eye of storm in the VA scandal.

To the person venting about “Code Pink nimrods acting like 12-year-olds” (Sept. 21, 2014), one of those people protesting the Senate Armed Services hearings was retired U.S. Army Col. Ann Wright. She has both a master’s and a law degree from the University of Arkansas, a master’s degree in national security affairs from the U.S. Naval War College and is U.S. Army airborne-qualified.
“Plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose,” goes the French proverb credited to Jean-Baptiste Alphonse Karr: “The more things change, the more they stay the same.” It’s not that a society or organization cannot be transformed.

“Don’t let the door hit Russell Pearce on his way out. He is about as bad for the GOP as Karl Rove.”
Like rats leaving a sinking ship, this past month we have seen Democrat party stalwarts abandoning their leader, President Barack Obama, left and right. San Francisco’s uberprogressive, liberal Sen.

WAR! Here we go again! We hear the call to attack and destroy ISIS from all arenas: from Tom Patterson (“Time for US to get ‘crazy’ and fight to win in Middle East,” East Valley Tribune, Aug. 24), from Joe Klein (“An Evil That Must Be Stopped,” Time Magazine, Aug. 25), and from many politicians, government advisers and so-called military experts. And this after just having briefly commemorated the 100th anniversary of the beginning of World War I, “The Great War,” the “War To End All Wars.” As we lackadaisically prepare ourselves to slay our newest foe, ISIS, it might be worthwhile to glance at an excerpt from Ernst Glaeser’s renowned best-seller from 1928, “Jahrgang 1902” (“Birth Year 1902”).
It's disheartening to see the grifters, opportunists and race-baiters once again grab the chance to stir up racial animosity. We've seen Ferguson before. It's another setback to those sincerely striving for racial harmony.
“Shoot first, ask questions later” to “Paralysis by analysis.” Doesn’t that seem to be the change in American foreign policy over the last decade?
“Ferguson police had armored personnel carriers, machine guns, sniper rifles, grenades, not to mention enough tear gas for World War III. All of this military hardware was possessed in the name of terrorism and not one terrorist was caught or killed. All that this military equipment does is cause deafness in elected officials and used only to combat the First Amendment.”
Lost in all the big statewide races in Arizona's primary election are hard-fought congressional battles in which Democrats are trying to clinch a Phoenix-area seat and Republicans are vying for the chance to unseat Democratic incumbents in three districts.
“Judging by all his vacations and rounds of golf this year alone, I’d say Obama doesn’t give a rip about all the violence in the Middle East, or the fact that the Islamic terrorists want a modern-day Holocaust.”
