In a case with statewide implications, a lawyer for the City of Phoenix argued to the Court of Appeals Tuesday that governments can decide to allow ads for condoms and contraceptives on bus shelters and benches — but not for candidates or controversial causes.
What’s with all the political posturing and saber-rattling by our “desk jockey admirals and generals” in the House and Senate? We see them rabidly calling for everything short of “carpet bombing” Tehran and turning it into another Dresden. Of course, none (or almost none) of the military-aged sons (or daughters for that matter) of these politicians have ever been in or ever will be in the U.S. military and have to fight in the wars that their mommies and daddies vote for.
Being critical of President Obama’s push for a peaceful end to Iran’s Nuclear ambitions is plain ignorant. Our President does not want war. He is giving peace a chance rather than military strikes and another war. If it does not work and Iran fails to abide by the peaceful treaty, we can then act. I do think, however, if Israel feels any type of threat from Iran, they will act anyway and we may not have any say in the conflict.
Senate Finance Chairman Max Baucus was one of the chief authors of Obamacare. He helped write it, he voted for it, and he thought it would be great for America. That is, until he started listening to his constituents three years later. At an April 2013 Senate Budget Committee hearing, Baucus said of Obamacare that he saw “a huge train wreck coming.”
A small group of elected officials in Congress is currently leading the effort to find common ground on a budget proposal to avoid a repeat of the federal government shutdown and prevent sequestration in the coming years. Those are goals many Americans support. But how we get there could have devastating effects right here in Arizona.

Accent pieces like throw pillows are another way to introduce seasonal decor beyond the ornaments.

The nuclear deal brokered by the United States and Iran in Geneva is historic. Just as the agreement to peacefully disarm Syria of its chemical weapons demonstrated, diplomacy makes the world a safer place.
Is it possible that Kerry and Obama are so naïve about negotiating with Iran that they really think that they have pulled off something wonderful with the Islamics? Have neither of them heard about tawriya, an Islamic doctrine that allows lying in virtually all circumstances where the Islamic wishes to keep their true intentions secret from Infidels (nonbelievers)?
President Obama will get a break from “Obamacare” when he pardons the traditional Thanksgiving turkey. Each of us can also set aside our cares by pardoning a turkey and choosing a nonviolent Thanksgiving observance — one that gives thanks for our good fortune, health, and happiness with a life-affirming, cruelty-free feast of vegetables, fruits, and grains.
In his Sunday Letter to the Editor, Mr. Rod Livdahl rages against the “Fair Tax” with an emotional vengeance. His diatribe appears to more based on feelings that facts. If he had gone to the website he should have caught the following facts.
While viewing George and Laura Bush being interviewed on Jay Leno last eve I was reminded, we once had Presidents and First Ladies with class. It was refreshing to recall how they represented our country around the world, with respect and dignity. Two people who can enjoy a joke and face up to negative press.
As Executive Director of The Arc of Arizona, an organization dedicated to serving people with disabilities since 1958, I see daily the impact of committed people joining together to advocate for the rights and community participation of people with disabilities.
Looking for that perfect light for your home office? A new chair or coffee table? You might try making it yourself, at home, with just the click of a button.
Today, Harry Reid invoked the so called “Nuclear Option” — a critical change in the rules of the Senate that provided a voice for the minority party. When Obama had control of the House and the Senate we saw him ram through Obamacare. Obama has three more years to exercise his agenda but is fearful that he may actually lose control of the senate in 2014 due to the public backlash against Obamacare. His burning agenda is to stack the DC court with left wing judges and place more liberals in key positions within the government. He has stated that he feels these nominees are being held up by the GOP via filibuster. So, getting rid of this provision allows Obama to act with impunity in regards to nominees thus ensuring that he can place liberals in any position he wishes.
While Leon does have a point with Obamacare’s navigators, I would think there’s a bigger problem. A website as buggy and incompetent as the Obamacare’s site is has to be wide open to hackers and it has all but advertised that fact. Well crafted, competent websites have security issues — this mess has no even probability of security or safety.
Eddie Basha loved St. Vincent de Paul, and he especially loved Turkey Tuesday.
PHOENIX — Gov. Jan Brewer on Friday rejected calls by some Democrats for a special legislative session to give more cash to the beleaguered Child Protective Services.
Thanksgiving is a once a year memorable reminder of the goodness of God in this nation. As we think of our history, the American custom of Thanksgiving transcends cultures and stands as a truly American tradition. While giving thanks to God for His provision, gratitude for survival arranged the first Thanksgiving of Plymouth Colony in the fall of 1621 for the Pilgrims’ families and their Indian friends to celebrate.
At the Corporation Commission hearings (last) week, I saw dozens of APS solar customers stand up and present their monthly bills, showing exactly how much they pay to support the grid. And on Tuesday, APS finally admitted that solar customers on average pay $71 a month — twice what I pay for my apartment.
PHOENIX — A federal agency is threatening to revoke the certification of the Arizona State Hospital, saying it found violations of regulations dealing with patient rights and nursing services.
It happens all time; just not after the eligibility clock has already started running.
I disagree 100 percent with L.J. Rupp’s letter that seems to say the members of Congress are a bunch of morons and idiots who can’t get anything done!
The theory of backlash from politicians ramming crap down citizens’ throat doesn’t seem to apply in Arizona. The Republicans have rammed all kinds of partisan and ideological crap down our throats and still plan to keep doing it.
PHOENIX — Attorneys for two “dreamers” want to defend the lower resident tuition they and others pay for community college and sue Attorney General Tom Horne for trying to take it away.
I am always dismayed by articles such as Mike McClellan’s commentary on public prayer.
