When I was studying to be a rabbi, I spent several years doing volunteer service work in India, Thailand, El Salvador, Ghana, and many other countries. During that time, I heard many wrenching stories from women who had been the victims of violence. They told me they felt powerless, vulnerable, and scared.
Amid the multiple protestations concerning the controversial and now-vetoed SB 1062 were a collection of East Valley leaders and organizations concerned with how the bill would, and still might, hurt the state’s reputation.

Arizona Gov.

What the heck is our U.S. Sen. John McCain doing in Davos, Switzerland at some World Economic Conference. He was lecturing some “big shot” Russian Legislator about so-called “Syrian Cluster Bombs.” These weren’t cluster bombs they were “barrel bombs.” Some type of crude bomb with explosives and nails packed into a steel barrel and dropped by a helicopter of all things.
Have you ever tried to get a truthful answer to a question from your senators or representative?
“No need to try and get in touch with Senator McCain at the Republican Headquarters since I believe they are forwarding his calls to the Democrats. After hours, try the George & Dragon Pub, where he’s often seen wearing a Union Jack and tweeting with the hashtag #ILOVBENEDICT- ARNOLD. So says my conservative neighbor.”
U.S. Sen. John McCain hasn't decided whether he'll run for a sixth term, but the former GOP presidential nominee said Tuesday that the Arizona Republican Party's censure of him over the weekend may just have provided the motivation to seek office again.
I’m glad to see our elected leaders in Washington have approved a plan to allow the federal government to spend money through 2014.

The fees for air tour operators that use technology to quiet the sound of aircraft at Grand Canyon National Park have been reduced.
“Did you see the photo of the president shaking hands with Castro? Oh, I meant the photo of Richard Nixon shaking hands with Fidel Castro. He put the five-finger grip on Mao Tse-tung, too. Their records on human rights are pretty well known, but somehow the Republicans have a bad case of memory loss about those photos. McCain slipped Muammar Gaddafi ‘five’ also, but he seems to have forgotten that while taking Pres. Obama to task for his greeting to Raul Castro.”
“Reid and Obama just guaranteed another shut down by invoking the nuclear option. Only this one may be longer and nastier than any in history. Hold on to your hats, the man that claimed he would unite America has driven a stake in any hope of that goal.”
