Once again, we see America supporting the “dirty end” of the political stick. We are (or soon will be) supplying money and weapons to the “al-Queda” Islamists in Syria (the Islamic state of Iraq, the Levant, Ahrar al-Sham to name a few of these crazies who practice cannibalism, beheadings and the like). Now we are to climb in bed with Neo-Nazi’s in Ukraine (Svoboda, Patriots of Ukraine, Spilna Sprava, Afgantsy and the Ukrainian Insurgent Army to name just a few).
Dear Arizona House of Representatives,
NEW IN THEATERS
Just about a 10 minute ride west of Page sits one of the most elegant resorts in the Southwest. You just don’t know about it. There are no billboards, no splashy advertising in the local press. Even if you knew about the place, it’s still hard to find.
The recent vote at the (Volkswagen) plant in Tennessee is not only a victory for VW’s employees, but a triumph for America. Too long, far too long, have unions been a sanctuary for those whose primary motives are to pilfer dollars from honest working men and women while at the same time giving preferential treatment to relatives and friends. Not to be overlooked are practices that amount to bigotry and coercion against workers, many of whom have no choice but to pay dues to union bosses.
Every Friday, more than 2,000 school children from low-income families in the Southeast Valley are discreetly given a backpack of food to ensure they have enough to eat during the weekend so they’ll return on Monday nourished, alert and ready to learn. The backpacks are provided by Arizona Brainfood, which is supported by Mesa United Way and a number of local businesses and philanthropic organizations.
Common sense would dictate that Chickenhawks like Dick Cheney and Ted Nugent should be the last people to be consulted about troop levels and defense matters, but that’s exactly what is happening. Chickenhawks everywhere hope that an aggressive chest-thumping posture on fighting for your country will cause the American public to have amnesia about how these cowards showed the white feather when it came time for them to stand up and fight for their country during the Vietnam War. When it comes time for someone to fight for their country, Nugent and Cheney think there is no limit, as long as it does not include them. It insults our veterans to let Cheney and Nugent pose as patriots.
So Sierra Vista Republican Rep. David Stevens wants to make it more difficult to get public records.
With the new year now in full swing, the Gilbert Chamber of Commerce continues to work to identify the programs and services that can best serve our business community. Like most businesses, we move steadily forward in pursuit of our goals.
On March 3, our community and country will celebrate a unique birthday. On that date in 1931, President Herbert Hoover signed Public Law 823 that established the Star Spangled Banner as our National Anthem. At its national convention in Salt Lake City, the American Legion went on record supporting the birthday of this special music with a national day of observance.
SB 1062 has again pushed Arizona into a bad light of radical politics. Has the true majority of Arizona had enough of these radical legislators? Are Arizona voters tired of radical legislators pushing their own political agendas down our throats with no regard to needs of the people or economic ramifications? Radical politics from any party does not belong in our state. All of these radical elected officials need to be voted out.
This Sunday the 86th Annual Academy Awards Ceremony will grace our TV’s. During the Ceremony, Arizona can be expected to be raked over the coals once again. Of course it is no longer the G-rated Program it once was. Now they have to use “L” for Language and “N” for Nudity alerts and probably “M” for Mature would be more fitting. We will of course be subjected to some male/female body part(s) being bared due to an “accidental” clothing malfunction. We will of course be subjected to f-bombs, c-bombs, s-bombs and other assorted profanity from the host/hostess, the presenters, and the awardees. Crocodile tears, mock surprise and humility will rule the day. The “best” movie will be awarded to one of the usual liberal Hollywood. Heaven forbid that any movie positively portraying a normal American family or having a pro-American theme would ever win an Oscar these days.
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. — For years, fans have been telling Ruth Reichl that they love her novels. Problem was, she hadn't written any.
“To the naive venter that thinks Walmart can afford to pay $10.10/hour since ‘the four Waltons have $33 billion each’: Honey, they aren’t going to use their money to fund the pay increase, they’ll get it from us via higher prices.”
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. — Paula Deen continued maneuvering for a comeback Sunday, turning a beachside cooking demonstration into a public apology for the racist comments that decimated her career last year.
Chris Apodaca’s grim childhood began to change for the better when he entered Sunshine Acres at age 10. He had been living on the streets with his sister, two brothers and drug addicted parents for as long as he could remember.
Two miles from my house at a Chandler Walmart, a man was shot and killed following a fight at the customer service counter on Sunday afternoon. The shooter claims self defense and that he was in fear for his life. We have heard this defense before.
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer was holding a series of private meetings Wednesday with opponents and proponents of legislation adding protections for people who assert their religious beliefs in refusing service to gays, a proposal that has focused national attention on the state as business groups, gay rights supporters and even many fellow Republicans urged her to use her veto power.
Proponents of a change in laws on religious freedom get a last chance today to convince Gov. Jan Brewer to sign the legislation.
Dear Gilbert School Board Members,
Republican Gov. Jan Brewer faced intensifying pressure Monday from CEOs, politicians in Washington and state lawmakers in her own party to veto a bill that would allow business owners with strongly held religious beliefs to deny service to gays and lesbians.
A controversial bill passed by the Arizona Legislature has sparked conversation and debate across the nation.
Cities, counties, school districts and state governments all over our country have cut budgets over the past several years. Education, infrastructure, aid to the poor and housing assistance have all been reduced.
It was with great interest that we read the coalition of Gilbert leaders’ open letter to Town residents and businesses last week. We were encouraged that our community leaders had finally spoken out on the raging storm that threatens our Gilbert Public Schools.
Saying the legislation would be “unbelievably damaging” to the state, the head of a major economic development group is urging Gov. Jan Brewer to veto legislation expanding the ability of businesses to use their religion to deny services.
