Unless Congress takes immediate action, funding for education could be slashed by $3 billion on March 1. This would be the largest cut to education in our nation’s history, and could result in millions of dollars of lost revenue for our local school district.
I’m writing in response to Leon Ceniceros’ letter to the editor about the U.S. having to go it alone in fighting for democracy around the world.
Folks, when did America’s greatest treasure, United States citizenship, become a bartering commodity for votes with the Hispanic/Latino community as per Sen. John McCain? When did America’s greatest treasure, United States citizenship, become a bartering commodity with the Hispanic/Latino Community for converts to the Mormon religion or the recapturing “fallen away” parishioners of the Catholic church or more donations in the Sunday Mass collection basket or monthly tithes.
Shame on America’s liberal journalists
Is it time for Arizona Sen. John McCain to follow in the foot steps (actually the “Shoes of the Fisherman”), Pope Benedict VI?
Ted Simmon, the TV Host of KAET’s “Horizon” TV Program asks “What is wrong with Arizona?”
When will the “Victim Game” stop for Blacks and Hispanics in America? It’s been more than 40 years, almost two Generations and Martin Luther King’s “Dream” is still a dream. Schools are no longer segregated. Colleges and Universities are no longer segregated. Why aren’t blacks, Native Americans and Hispanics doing as well or better than other past and present ethnic and racial groups?
I remember when I first came to Mesa in 2001, everything was booming. You couldn’t find a parking space at Wal-Mart and all the check-out lights were on and the lines were 10 shopping carts long. I just came back from my Monthly trip to Wal-Mart and was struck by how deserted and down-sized it has become. My Fry’s Supermarket had hordes and hordes of winter visitors, shopping carts full to the brim with top-of-the-line liquor and huge roasts. We “locals” dreaded going shopping. Now we go and there are just 2-3 lanes open because no one is buying anything. Full to the brim shopping carts are as extinct as the dinosaurs.
Well, we have seen 10-plus assorted letters to the editor, columnist's columns and Vents all portraying the president as a victim of a horrendous insult. What a hoot?
This is in response to Leon Ceniceros’s letter of Dec. 7, entitled “Was it always this bad?” The answer to that question, of course, is no, it was not. The main reason for all the negative changes in our great land is the substitution of the bible and its guiding principles with a liberal secularism in most facets of public life. Where the Eternal Creator and His creeds were once revered in this country, one now finds a relative moralism.
I wrote a Letter to the Editor last week and got a lot of comments about being racist and questioning a woman- only right to abort a male-conceived fetus at will.
On this Veterans Day we see what a sad state our beloved country is in.
Let me get this straight. The Mesa Unified School District has lost 9,000 students since 2005. Each student costs the Arizona taxpayer $5,000 per year. Since 9,000 students no longer cost the Arizona taxpayers $5,000 a year, the taxpayers of Arizona have saved $45,000,000. So where is the problem and why is the Mesa Unified School district upset? Even if it saves each Arizona taxpayers $1... that is $1 more than they had in their wallets. Is it a “bad thing” to save the Arizona taxpayers money? Are we living in a Socialist nation or a capitalist nation?
Obama: First you say you do, and then you don’t.
Immigration reform, what’s being “reformed”? All I see coming from President Obama, Hispanic activists and sadly our Arizona “Republican In Name Only” (R.I.N.O.) Senators John “Keating Five” McCain and Jeff “S.T.R.I.V.E. Act” Flake is 100 percent Amnesty.
McCain a hero, but today's Marines have endured more
When did America start punishing financial success or inherited wealth? We don’t punish educational or sporting successes or achievements. We don’t punish people who are born good-looking or well-built do we? If a student studies hard and earns a good grade do we reduce that test grade to a lower grade and bring up a failing student?
In 1691, the first Thanksgiving, where the protestant pilgrims thanked their Lord, Jesus Christ, for giving them a bountiful harvest, began. That could never happen today.
Folks, to be honest, I didn’t give a rat’s patootie about the presidential election. In my book, it was a choice between “tweedle-dumb and tweedle-dumber.” On one hand we have a Socialist Wanna-Be, Barack Hussein Obama, and on the other hand a super-wealthy, out-of- touch, silver-spoon guy who took every draft deferment in the book to get out of serving his country. I could care less if it was legally legal or not. In my book, having someone carry “your” gun in time of war is morally wrong.
Haven’t Americans (especially Arizonans) done enough to appease the illegal alien amnesty activists (either homegrown or from California)? The millions of dollars spent to defend our state, cities, towns, counties and law enforcement agencies from the Obama administration, the ACLU, Hispanic plaintiffs and others from enforcing U.S. laws about illegal entry into the country.
Why are the American people being fed nothing but lies about the Benghazi, Libya Embassy Attack and the murder of Ambassador Chris Stevens? Obama’s UN Ambassador Susan Rice was all over the news programs spouting the Administration’s lie about the Benghazi Embassy attack being “spontaneous,” brought about “solely” to protest the latest anti-Islam “home movie.”
Looks like we have another Jimmy Carter President in the White House. Barack Hussein Obama has been kissing up to the Muslim world since he became president. Could it be from his Muslim childhood in Indonesia? He hardly had a “Yankee Doodle Dandy” childhood. His parents met at a Russian language class in the 1960s at the University of Hawaii (now who studied Russian back in those days, Marxists maybe?). On one of his first overseas trips as president he meets the King of Saudi Arabia (Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques) and gives him a full bow from the waist. No other president has bowed down to any head of state in our history. Then Obama apologizes to the Muslim world for America’s past “transgressions” at the University of Cairo. Yes, Cairo, where our U.S. Embassy was overrun. What does the Obama Administration do? It issues another “apology.” “The Embassy of the United States in Cairo condemns the continuing efforts of misguided individuals to hurt the religious feelings of Muslims...”
No flip-flops or beach/pool shoes. No clothes or accessories that are distracting to the learning environment. No facial piercings, nose piercings, tongue piercings, (ear lobe plugs) in ears or elsewhere that are visible or multiple earrings. No visible cleavage. No visible undergarments. No clothes that are too tight, too loose or transparent. No bare midriffs or skirts that are more than 3 inches above the knee. No spaghetti straps, no bare shoulders, no exercise pants, exercise shorts, sweat shirts, sweat pants. Men’s shirts should have a collar attached.
Sadly, instead of imparting truthful information about the Colorado shooting, our TV and newspaper media has gone into full liberal attack mode. Right after the name of the accused shooter, James Holmes, was made public the blame game started. On ABC’s hugely popular Good Morning America program, reporter Brian Ross, told George Stephanopoulos that a James Holmes was a member of the Tea Party.
Eighty-two-thousand instead of 120,000 this week. One million Americans have given up even looking for non-existant jobs. Obama promised that his stimulus package would keep Unemployment down below 8 percent. The White House and the Democrats in the Senate and Congress said the stimulus would lower unemployment to 6 percent. Folks, we have an America in “free fall.” An America saddled with a $15 trillion Obama deficit. An America headed for the “poor house”, a third-world economy.
