PRESCOTT, Ariz. (AP) — An Ohio plumber thrust into national politics during the 2008 presidential campaign says the United States needs to build a fence at the Mexico border and "start shooting" at suspected illegal immigrants.
"Changing the school meal programs, making kids go 10 miles to another school with no bussing help, raising college tuition - if it is just too much trouble for the governor and Legislature to actually educate our young, why don't they just close up all the schools and do away with this worrisome issue altogether? Then our children can grow up to be as ignorant as they are."
"Everywhere I go, all I see is our younger generation walking around looking like cell-phone zombies. Is it just me or are others of you out there as concerned as I am?"
Let me get this straight, the Taliban, al-Qaeda, and Somali Islamic insurgents can torture, behead, burn and drag American military men on video but a bunch of Marines who have had to pick up the body parts of their I.E.D.-blown up buddies are in trouble for whizzing on some dead Taliban attackers? Sadly, our resident R.I.N.O. Senator, John ‘Last Hurrah' McCain whines that it ‘makes me so sad.' Will President Obama rise to the bait and ‘apologize' once again to the Muslim world?"
"You've got to be kidding me. At the governor's state of the state speech, there were protesters from the left that were both protesting killing animals for hunting, and supporting abortion at the same time? And they have the nerve to call conservatives crazy!"
This week we saw President Obama fire his first salvo in the 2012 presidential election. No he didn't give this speech before his adoring union members or college student "purple Kool-Aid" drinkers.

According to an August poll in the Ahwatukee Foothills News, Neely was ahead but Wright took a definitive lead in a poll on sonoranalliance.com. Each of the candidates have spent countless hours putting up signs, talking to residents and speaking at forums, and it will all come to an end in two short nights.
Backers and foes of a proposed sales tax hike came nearly face to face Friday in competing — and simultaneous — rallies at the state Capitol.
Joe Thomas, a high school teacher in Mesa, addresses a counter-demonstration held at the Capitol Friday by supporters of the one-cent tax hike, mainly teachers. That rally was organized to counter the anti-tax gathering -- and Thomas was chosen to speak because of his name: Tax supporters wanted to counter Joe the Plumber with some Joes from Arizona.
Samuel J. Wurzelbacher, better known as Joe the Plumber, addresses an anti-tax rally at the Capitol on Friday. Wurzelbacher, who said he wasn't paid to come here from Ohio, said he makes appearances around the country to ``generate excitement'' and urge Arizona voters to get informed.
Linda Turley-Hansen: It’s heartening to see the Republican Party in the makeover seat. The old girl is in bad shape, and so are a bunch of her incumbents who’ve gone off to sleep in their rockers. Both parties have left the people, but the Dems don’t seem to even care that they’re out of touch.
“Have you heard — it isn’t necessary to pay your taxes by April 15. You can wait until you have been nominated as a cabinet member.”

Barack Obama’s election is a capstone on black Americans’ struggle for equality.
How fitting that, having campaigned on conservative themes throughout the fall, President-elect Barack Obama’s acceptance speech concluded with words that should warm the heart of conservatives everywhere.
The one common thread throughout Linda Turley-Hansen’s Nov. 2 diatribe (“Democratic victory can only bring danger,” Opinion 2) — indeed, the one that seems to be intrinsic in the majority of current conservative mindset — is that somehow liberal ideology is the demon that will suck the ideological lifeblood out of the American democratic dream.
Forget Joe the Plumber. Here’s a redistribution-of-wealth plan for Joe the Binge-Eater. No matter which candidate you cast your vote for Tuesday, afterward you can enjoy free food:

YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio - Republican presidential candidate John McCain on Friday called the economic policies of rival Barack Obama from the far left of American politics. In its hunt for votes for next week's election, the Obama campaign continued to tie McCain to the unpopular President Bush and promise a reversal of tax policies favoring the wealthy.
Republicans John McCain and Sarah Palin summon antidemocratic images of a communist state to attack Democrat Barack Obama's tax plan and his comment about spreading the wealth around. But in her home state, Palin embraces Alaska's own version of doing just that.
