Those crazy Regressives keep trying new avenues to convince us that “trickle down” economics actually “works” and their latest scam is the “Fair Tax,” a misnomer if there ever was one!
Fifteen years ago, Donna and Roy Tuttle of Gilbert lived through one of those “parents’ worst nightmare” experiences. Their son, Travis, a graduate of Gilbert High School, was 20 and serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in Russia when they got word that he and his companion, Andrew Propst, also 20, of Lebanon, Ore., had been kidnapped and were being held for ransom.
Pictured in November 2013, Travis Tuttle and Andrew Probst were both 20 when they were kidnapped and held for ransom while on a mission trip in Russia 15 years ago. Their story is the inspiration for a film, "The Saratov Approach," playing in Mesa through Thanksgiving. [Photo courtesy Travis Tuttle]
As thousands of German Jews sought refuge both before and during World War II, many ended up in Japanese-controlled Shanghai. The story of these roughly 23,000 refugees is chronicled in the 2002 documentary “Shanghai Ghetto.”
“Everyday there is a post about some glorious way to make every man woman and child comfortable. And everyday it becomes increasingly clearer that the ultimate goal of most of you is to see the closing of all for profit businesses. The sole purpose of this can only be to funnel all money into the government for redistribution. Much like Stalinist Russia. When the 98% went from middle class and some poor to no middle class and all destitute.”
“If you think Obama is weak on Syria and Russia, just remember Assad and Putin were the ones who came a knockin’. Obama has a poker face that would make McCain throw his phone away.”
Does “GOP” now stand for the “Grand Old Peace” party? You’d think so if you listen to many Republican conservative talkers, pundits, and nervous politicians holding their fingers up to the wind, then holding up a certain finger to the White House.
Who do we believe, Russia and their 100 page report blaming the Rebels, or our government blaming Bashar al-Assad for gassing the Syrian people? The same government that after a year of investigation into the murders of Americans in Benghazi, can only produce to Congress a YouTube video as evidence.
I arrived in Vietnam just after our first 8,000 “advisors” landed there to “assess the situation.” Our leaders decided to show the free world that we would stand up to Communist aggression. We sent more and more troops and resources; the USSR. sent only resources. We lost the war and 58,000 precious lives.
Two futures await hockey player Lyndsey Fry. There’s the immediate future, the one defined by the months the Chandler native and Harvard forward will spend in Massachusetts training with her Team USA teammates as they aim for gold at the Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia, this February. There’s still one last tryout session left in December — only 21 players will join USA and Harvard coach Katey Stone for the Eurasian trip — but she’s taken a year sabbatical from Harvard to give this rare chance, one that would make her the first Arizonan to play Olympic hockey, her best shot.
“Kick-Ass” was one of those movies that seemed to have everybody split. Either you found the film morally reprehensible or you soaked up every minute of the film’s colorful violence and profanity. Personally, I was among the latter group.
East Valley’s Pollack Chabad Center to open after 10 years of fundraising
“Sen. Lindsey Graham wants to boycott the olympics because Russia is harboring Edward Snowden. Question ! If we do that who’s going to give our astronauts a ride back from the space station?”

How could the Obama administration even considered for one minute arming the Syrian rebels?
Ashley Vargas lives for the looks of astonishment on her audience’s faces when she performs her nightly show.
There’s good news and bad news in the twin terrorist outrages of the horrific running over and hacking to death of a British soldier and the Boston Marathon bombings. The good: intelligence agencies had some of these young terrorists on their radar. The bad news: having them on the radar did little good since the murderers still successfully completed their planned butchery.
“I don’t know why everyone is complaining that the Gilbert school board cut salaries, eliminated the teachers’ voices from negotiations, and secured all the power of decision making for themselves. After all, this strategy has worked very successfully in Communist Russia, Nazi Germany, and... and... oh wait... maybe there IS a problem here!”

“A Good Day to Die Hard” marks the fifth entry to the “Die Hard” franchise and the third film to come out in the last two months about an ass kicking senior citizen. The original “Die Hard” is a definitive action picture that can still make audiences cheer even after multiple viewings. Whether you love or hate “Die Hard 2” and “Die Hard with a Vengeance,” pretty much everyone can agree that John McClane made a welcome return in the sensational “Live Free or Die Hard” a few years ago. The previous “Die Hard” got just about everything right from the absurdly insane stunts, to the humorous dialog, to Bruce Willis’ committed performance. “A Good Day to Die Hard” has just enough fun moments for die-hard fans to take a gander. Regrettably, it remains the least impressive outing of this series.
