Leon, it's not up to the city council to force a liquor license down the throats of business owners and operators. The council is often mixed up. There are businesses that failed around The Dennis Kavanaugh Center for the Arts, who requested a liquor license as that's what it takes for many restaurant operators to run a successful business. In that case, many didn't get it and closed up shop.
The Marriott is right, there were be a very short period of heavy use for Riverview during Spring Training. I'm sure they have crunched the numbers and at this time, it just doesn't make financial sense to them, to outlay the money to install the Dennis Kavanaugh Bar & Lounge. It's all about R.O.I., Return On Investment. Something Dennis Kavanaugh knows little if anything about..4 weeks ago
Is this the same Dennis Kavanaugh, who through his infinite business wisdom, caused the city to lose millions of dollars on the Bailey Brake Shop fiasco? The same Dennis Kavanaugh who thought it was swell to put a massage parlor at Dobson and Baseline, and used dirty tricks and lies to keep out a tattoo shop at the same location, once again costing the city lots of money after the tattoo shop business owner successfully sued the city? Yes, I believe it is the same Dennis Kavanaugh.
Dennis, if you want to run the Marriott, I suggest that you put your money where your big, fat, mouth is, then you can run the business your way.
Maybe it's time to start gathering signatures on a recall petition to oust Dennis Kavanaugh from office. He's not representing the citizens of Mesa, just his little click of the misguided elitists. 4 weeks ago
Mike McClellan, you can keep your rhetoric. As for me, I'll keep my guns to protect my family, especially since our government likes to provide assualt weapons to drug cartels.
As for the 2nd Amendment, Mike, I suggest you read it because TempeTownToilet is right on the money about we, the people, having the right to form a well armed militia for the purposes of overthrowing a defecttive government. Mass punishment will not stand against the law abiding gun owners, just because a few people with some serious mental health problems got their hands on assault weapons. You should be angry at the Newtown shooter's mother. She's the dipstick who trained him to handle and shoot firearms. The same woman who knew her son had mental health issues that forced her to file a court petition to have her son committed to a mental health facility.
Betterchoice, it wasn't President Reagan's fault that mental patients were released into the streets. You can thank the socialist progressive creeps at the ACLU for that. That's right, they are the ones who took legal action to protect the rights of the mentally ill at the expense of innocent, law abiding citizens. Kind of makes you feel warm and secure, doesn't it?4 months ago
Salfia, let me answer that one for you. This coming January, Obummer, Nappy and that criminal racist by the name of Eric Holder will all be gone. Sheriff Joe's enforcment program will be back in full swing, only this time around, We, the people, the US Citizens, will have conservative control of not only the US House, but the US Senate as well.
How's that hope and change working for ya, Salafia? After all, the private sector is doing just fine according to your master.11 months ago
So if I understand Jesus Christo de Nogales correctly, he sounds like he wants Mexico to take more responsibility for their own country and citizens, instead of shoving their problems on us. Even if Jesus was being satrical, his approach is a great idea and one that is long overdue. 11 months ago

It certainly isn't. It doesn't matter what the ethnic background of the illegal aliens is. It's organizations like "The Race" la Raza, that are playing the race card and also doing serious reverse discrimination damage against US Citizens. It's high time we put a stop to it and enforce our immigration laws.
For those treehugging socialist progressive demodopes out there who don't like my poltically incorrect rhetoric, too bad. Political Correctness is a fad that many US Citizens are growing tired of.

Salafia, I think it is you and the joke in the White House, who don't know or understand what is written in the US Constitution.Sad that you can't come up with a good reply to what I previously stated. So typical of "The Race" la Raza supporters.
Less than 72 hours and counting until that Obamination of a health care law is dealt with by SCOTUS.11 months ago
Can any of you Treehugging Socialist Progressive Ilegal Alien Loving Constitutional Stompers, tell me why it's okay to discriminate against other ethnic origins in this country, but not against those with a hispanic background? Seriously, when's the last time you dialed a federal or state office, and the menu prompted you to push 1 for Italian, 2 for German, 3 for Polish, 4 for Russian, 5 for Farsi, 6 for French...well, you get the idea. Because of people like you, our government is catering to ONE particular ethnic group, while disciminating against many others. So tell me, is that equal and impartial treatment to all?
I still have yet to hear from anyone who can give me a valid reason as to why immigrants who came to this country legally from around the world, don't get the same special treatment that many hispanic illegal aliens who sneak across our borders do. This is the WORST form of discrimination anyone has ever seen. I did not serve my country, including taking an oath to protect my country from all enemies, foreign AND domestic, so my own government can TROMP on the rights of my fellow US Citizens, while catering to a particualar ethnic group of people, regardless of what country they come here ilegally from.
Perhaps it might be different and you wouldn't see a need to pass laws like SB-1070, if our Federal Govrenment did their job of enforcing our borders and keeping out the illegal invaders. Many other countries send illegal invaders to PRISON, then deport them. Some are even accused and tried as spies, all because they did not respect that country's laws just by crossing their borders illegally. Good deterrent. About time we started permanently rotating our regular military units stationed in the USA, for border duty, and without tying thier hands behind their backs. That's exactly what many countries around the world do, they use their own military to partrol and protect THEIR own borders.11 months ago
Attention Treehugging Socialist Progressive Illegal Alien Lovers, YOU LOST. That's right, YOU LOST. The KEY PROVISION of SB-1070 has been UPHELD.
Dale Whiting, Judge Susan Bolton was REPRIMANDED by SCOTUS. That's what happens when you have judges on the bench who thumb their noses at our US Constitution and Bill of Rights, who instead try to legislate from the bench, which is exactly what she was trying to do. This ruling will hurt any chance she might have had at being appointed to an appeals court. Judges like her are one of the reasons why our appeals court system is so overloaded. She would fit right in with the so called judges over at Maricopa County Superior Court.
SCOTUS to Judge Susan Bolton: "The majority said U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton should not have enjoined the law until state courts had an opportunity to review it and see how it would be implemented."

vrsicks, I'm not going to be politically correct. In fact, I'm going to be very blunt. YOU, and demodope socialst progressives like you, are EXACTLY what is wrong with this country today. I hope and pray that this coming November, those demodopes in D.C. who aren't bailing like some are and instead have decided to run for reelection, will be FIRED on election day, including that socialist idiot in the White House.
The only reason Obumbles sidestepped our Congress and who is undermining our Constitution with his bogus executive orders and Congress out of session appointments, is to get reelected. The main reason he is ignoring our immigration laws in regards to the younger illegal immigrants, is again, to try and get reelected. One MASSIVE problem with that, it has angered the labor unions in a big way, whose very jobs are not threatened by a cheap labor force. Also, Obumbles has very good reason to believe that SCOTUS is going to uphold our SB-1070 laws. Can you also say, Bye, Bye, Obumblecare?
I'm really enjoying watching Obumbles, talking his doo doo, then stepping in it. He looks so smart when he makes comments about how well our private sector employment is doing.......NOT.
One last thing, vrsicko, that "old timer' you are showing disrespect to, most likely paid more into SSI than you ever will. It was because of progessives like you, who allowed a demodope majority to tax SSI. Remember who cast the deciding vote? Yep, Mr. I Invented the Internet himself, Al Sore Loser Gore. Take note, sicko, we, the people, are mad as hell are we aren't going to take it anymore. Got it? You had better because our massive voting power was felt in 2010 and it's going to be even stronger in 2012. 11 months ago
