When the Republicans talk about “Affordable Heathcare,” one of the options they tout is “Repeal and Replace.” Given their past history, a Republican “Replace” option concerns me more than anything else. Republicans have always prohibited Medicare — the single largest buyer — from attempting to negotiate drug prices, consistent with the pharmaceutical companies’ philosophy that completely unrestrained prices and profits are necessary to fund the risk-taking of research and development. Medicare is required by Congress to accept the pharmaceutical companies’ prices without comparison or negotiation, add 6 percent to it, and pay it. As a perpetual gift to the pharmaceutical companies, when Part D of Medicare was passed in 2003, Congress prohibited Medicare from negotiating altogether. There were some reciprocal gifts from the pharmaceutical companies to the cooperating Congressmen, as might be expected.
PHOENIX — A legislative panel may be ready to jettison plans to try to build a border fence, having gathered less than $265,000 in donations over three years.
Capitalism or socialism in america. which shall it be? All the signs are there. Our nation is rapidly moving towards socialism. Americans on some form of welfare outnumber the number of workers. National healthcare is upon us and the middle class is being destroyed. The unemployment rate is reported to be 7.2 percent but the real number is in the range of 15 percent. We are becoming a nation of part time workers. Our national debt is a disaster waiting to happen. Perhaps this is what our President had in mind when he said “I want to fundamentally transform America”.
Somewhere deep into "The Counselor," I found myself mesmerized by a metaphysical monologue from one of the characters — someone who sounded strikingly similar to my college philosophy professor — and trying to figure out exactly what he meant, and how it related to the person he was saying it to.
Raise your hand if, in August, Mesquite vs. Campo Verde was atop your list of premier matchups heading into the playoffs; that this game would decide a section championship and have a significant impact on earning home playoff games?
Gilbert event to mark silver anniversary of Mesa organization’s efforts
Neither Sen. Rafael (Ted) Cruz nor Sarah Palin are particularly good about details, but they need a basic history lesson regarding the World War II memorial. It’s true that this is “the peoples’ memorial” and that is because it was built with taxpayers’ funds. It has also been considered advisable that some provision be made to maintain the memorial, to wash off the pigeon flop and graffitti, and to fence the memorial to keep people like Rafael and Sarah from climbing on it for recreation. Rafael and Sarah believe in the “free lunch” philosophy and think that memorials build themselves and maintain themselves out of thin air. If Rafael and Sarah truly believe themselves, the memorial should have been built with private funds, and maintained with private funds also. Of course, that would mean that visitors would have to pay admission fees to visit the memorial, and it might not look so shiny if admission fees were inadequate, and it might close altogether if people lost interest in it. As a veteran, I find this repugnant.

In last week’s football game between Hamilton and Basha, there were 38 points scored after a seemingly-innocuous 1-yard touchdown run by Huskies tailback Tyrell Smith early in the second quarter.
Mesquite is rolling in good times lately. Poston Butte flat-out can’t buy a break. The Wildcats (6-1) just won a shootout over Glendale Cactus for their fifth consecutive win, with an 11-point loss to Williams Field in Week 2 the only blemish. The Wildcats’ defense has been a brick wall for most of the season, with Paul Perry running the ball to help Payton Haslam direct the offense. That defense has to wrangle Brandon Hatfield and Poston Butte’s ground attack, in which he’s put up 1,055 yards and 15 TD, plus 314 yards receiving and 4 TD. He’s not a one-man show, but the Broncos (3-4) are in trouble if Hatfield isn’t able to get going or pop a “home run” carry. Trouble is, that hasn’t happened against Mesquite this season. Don’t let Poston Butte’s record fool you, the Broncos are better than the current three-game losing skid they’re on: Lost by one point to both Notre Dame and Marana Mountain View (which lost to Mesquite on a strange, second-chance field goal at the buzzer), and lost by three points to Marcos de Niza last week (plus a nine-point loss to Queen Creek early in the season). These two teams with their philosophies and offensive styles mirror one another, and that makes for a true tossup.
Prediction: Mesquite 21, Poston Butte 17

Automotive engineers and designers often have trouble seeing eye-to-eye. Artists rarely sip coffee with scientists, and jocks never sit at lunch tables with the nerds. It’s stereotypical, but it’s difficult to deny. Local Motors, a Chandler-based vehicle company and think tank, is looking to change that.

Eight months after the election I still continue to be amused by all the back and forth in this newspaper over political philosophy. Obama won and, as a country, we have progressively changed how we think and the values of self determination, innovation and hard work have been replaced with entitlement treasure hunting.
