“With the right to bear arms comes a great responsibility to use caution and common sense on handgun purchases. And it’s just plain common sense that there be a waiting period to allow local law-enforcement officials to conduct background checks on those who wish to purchase handguns.” That’s a quote from former President Ronald Reagan in 1991. In addition to supporting background checks on gun sales, President Reagan championed the original assault weapons ban and urged Congress to pass the Brady Act. As governor of California, he signed the Mulford Act, which prohibited the open carrying of firearms in public.
First thing’s first: Even though he had no possible reason to want to hit Dodgers instant-living-legend Yasiel Puig with a 2-0 lead and no one on in the sixth inning last Tuesday, Arizona’s Ian Kennedy put a pitch where you just don’t put a pitch in today’s baseball.
Not waiting for formal gubernatorial approval, foes of her Medicaid expansion already are moving to undo at the ballot box and in court what they could not block at the Legislature.
Craig Zisk moves from TV to big screen with the story of a teacher played by Julianne Moore who sleeps with a former student.
The government can’t be trusted with our health
At one time, the community of Gilbert had a great reputation. It had great schools and a proud economic future that led to Gilbert being one of the best communities to live in in the United States.
I find it so routine, the negative comments regarding the recent “Mirandizing” letter to the editor. The comments as to which TV news reporting agency is the most biased is a banal and moot point which will never be put to rest. As are the comments about watching Law & Order, et al. Those readers have missed the issue; why isn’t the ‘suspected’ bomber being adjudicated as a terrorist instead of a poor Islamic refugee who enjoys blowing up his fellow citizens in the name of Allah? And yes, the shoe bomber was 2001; and again the issue was missed. That of, “Did the government learn nothing from it?” I sense people suffering political shame.
Folks, when did America’s greatest treasure, United States citizenship, become a bartering commodity for votes with the Hispanic/Latino community as per Sen. John McCain? When did America’s greatest treasure, United States citizenship, become a bartering commodity with the Hispanic/Latino Community for converts to the Mormon religion or the recapturing “fallen away” parishioners of the Catholic church or more donations in the Sunday Mass collection basket or monthly tithes.
Did you catch The Rev. Jesse Jackson the other night on CNN demanding a Senate hearing into why regulators never cracked down on that gruesome abortion clinic in Philadelphia?
Once again, an Arizona senator has failed to follow the will of the nation but rather serves his pockets and a lobbying group. THE MAJORITY of Americans want some type of gun control. No one is asking to repeal guns... just control the psychotic individuals that can get a hold of weapons.
SAN DIEGO — La Jolla's jagged coastline is strictly protected by environmental laws to ensure the San Diego community remains the kind of seaside jewel that has attracted swanky restaurants, top-flight hotels and some of the nation's rich and famous, including billionaire businessman Irwin Jacobs and former presidential candidate Mitt Romney.
“What’s with the weeds 2 feet high along University Drive in Mesa across from CVS? It always looks like a dump site. Lindsay down by Broadway, same thing. Property owners and the city both need a good ass kickin’.”
It is beyond belief that we have a handful of senators that want to filibuster to prevent even a vote on sensible gun control. When 90 percent of America is saying universal background checks are needed now. When over 75 percent of gun owners and NRA members are saying the same thing.
Jackie Robinson was the ideal class act to break the barrier and become the first black player in Major League Baseball.
Shame on America’s liberal journalists
It is quite disappointing that we now have a Senator who on the surface seems to understand the need for Universal Background Checks on Gun Sales. This supposedly good friend of Gabby Giffords then votes against it when it comes up for a Vote in the Senate. Mr. Flake obviously had fallen victim to the NRA who now has over 75 percent of it members in favor of Universal Background Checks. I find it very hypocritical that we have a Senator who shines is his smile of friendship to Gabby Giffords on her relentless campaign to get Gun Control legislation passed. At least to get Universal Background Checks passed. Then to have Mr Flake cave in to the failing NRA Lobbyist. This is a tell tale sign Senator Flake is not caring about what the people want but what the extreme lobbyist want. Shame on Senator Flake. Gabby does not need back stabbing friends like that.
Shaquille O'Neal is one busy retiree.
It’s a shame St. Mary’s doesn’t keep girls basketball statistics, because it would be nice to quantify the dominance of Chantel Osahor.
“Lord, you made many many poor people. I realize, of course, it’s no shame to be poor... but it’s no great honor either,” Tevye says during one of the opening scenes of “Fiddler on The Roof,” on stage this week with Theater League Productions’ national tour. Although veteran viewers could recite Tevye’s witticisms by heart, cast member and East Valley resident Chuck Caruso believes this production is new and different enough to keep them engaged.
Is America about to explode, is it a bubbling cauldron about to erupt? How much more deceit, betrayal, outright perjury from elected officials, media, and talking heads can be tolerated before the insanity becomes the catalyst for an event no one wants? At some point the enemy within shall be checked!
It’s been more than 35 years since the Oakland A’s made a change in its spring training itinerary, leaving Mesa for Scottsdale, before settling in on the Phoenix-Tempe border.
I find it quite shameful that the Arizona Tea Party would hold a rally at our state Capitol and call it “.223 Second Amendment Rally.” To have a rally named after one of the guns used in the Sandy Hook Massacre is shameful.
Where everyone else spent most of last January debating which team would be victorious at Super Bowl XLVII, I was busy trying to predict which movies would win big at the 85th annual Academy Awards. In many respects, the Oscars feel like a sporting event as nominees tirelessly campaign to win and award analyzers place bets on which horse will cross the finish line.
“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.
“Two things stand in the way of what Liberals truly want: citizens with guns and the Constitution, and we shall use the First to defend the Second!”
