Mesa native Matthew Goodman has advanced to the rank of colonel in the United States Army.
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.
A simple story told with economy, "Wadjda" is a notable example of old-school, humanistic filmmaking. It's also genuinely groundbreaking: the first feature shot entirely in Saudi Arabia, and the first film directed by a Saudi woman.
Chemical weapons are a horror for all of the world. BUT, why isn’t the UN in stepping up the plate?

“The Mesa Public Library requires photo identification to renew a library cards but no ID is required to vote.”
“Have you see an episode of Leave it to Beaver lately? It finds its humor in kids lying to parents, being sassy mouthed, sneaking behind parents’ backs and trying not to get caught. It has strong racist and sexist vibes. It’s not violent, but it’s not the values I want for my family. Look it up on Netflix if you think I’m wrong. If you want good values, try Little House on the Prairie and Mr. Rogers.”
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.
“I attended my first and last Gilbert school board meeting this week. The most interesting part of the meeting was the obligatory moment of silence. I’d recommend that all school board members be required to join Toastmasters International before they hold another meeting.”
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...”
LONDON (AP) — With a little British pomp and a lot of British pop, London brought the curtain down on a glorious Olympic Games on Sunday in a spectacular, technicolor pageant of landmarks, lightshows and lots of fun.

The Republican party wants us to believe that the unemployment rate of 8.2 percent reflects negatively on Obama’s economic policies. My question is compared to what?
Jamie Foxx star as Ronald Fluery in Universal Pictures' 2007 film "The Kingdom." Portions of the movie were filmed on the Loop 202 Santan Freeway, which portrayed a highway in Saudi Arabia in the film.
In an attempt to alleviate rampant voter fraud discovered in previous elections, the state of Texas passed a new voter ID law in 2011, which the U.S. Justice Department (DOJ) brazenly blocked on Monday because it claims the law would disenfranchise minority voters.
“So, Ron Paul got only 9 percent in the Arizona polls? Apparently only 9 percent of Arizonans can read and understand the U.S. Constitution? Only 9 out of a hundred Arizonans have any knowledge of U.S. history or the operation of our government as intended by the Founding Fathers? Only 9 percent understand basic economics and the free-market system? Sad!”
One of several causes of the 9/11 attacks, by Saudi Arabian Freedom Fighters, was the presence of American military personnel in their homeland that also is all Muslims’ Holy Land, Saudi Arabia.

ARLINGTON, Va. (AP) — Two retirees, a U.S. Postal Service worker and a business owner from politically important Midwestern and Southwestern states, all of them donors to President Barack Obama's re-election campaign, got a rare opportunity Thursday to bend his ear over dinner.
Having lived through WWII, having good friends, neighbors and business associates who are Jews, having met survivors of Hitler's death camps, having joined with other people of good will in a pledge to "never let it happen again" and having heard Islamists deny that the Holocaust ever happened, I am saddened to learn that a once-great American company like Delta Airlines has willingly entered into a business arrangement with Saudi Arabian Airlines in which Delta put itself in the position of having to enforce the Saudis' hateful policies against American Jews. Delta's defense that they must enforce the laws of Saudi Arabia fall on deaf ears because they entered into this agreement willingly just to make a few extra dollars.
