This was obviously a mental heath control issue and not a gun control issue. Attempting to address this tragedy with the latter will not accomplish anything.
The defective unit tht did this could have done and equal or greater amount of damage with a vehicle. Just my opinnion 5 months ago
What does this story have to do with the average 70 year old looking for work. The headlinr states "Hired: Older workers more accepted in today’s workplace" and then focuses on 50 years old plues executives earning hundreds of thousand per year.
The real question is what is the unemployment rate for the 55+ year old work group that are looking for gainful employment.
I do not know, but I'm sure it's not reflective of the 55+ limited excutive group.10 months ago
Please let me know when your available, I'll bring the cup down to you. I don''t see too much constructive sensible work coming off on your end either. You are " then author of a lazy man bill." It's just a question a question of whose is not looking for gainful viable employment or who's not doing their job. As for me I'm gainfully employed without tax payer assistance, can you say the same.

Nowhere in the U.S. Constitution is there a provision to regulate commerce within a State but, only among the States, (Article 1, section 8). As long as a product is not exported from one State to another, by Constitutional test the federal Controlled Substances Act (Harrison Act) fails to meet the test.
The Federal Government has the right to regulate its property and borders with International boundaries and among the states. But the Federal Government does not have the right to regulate what I am selling from a cart in downtown Phoenix whether that is Taco's or Pot.
I am not a big supporter of the Brewer or Horne or their personal reason for this suite. But, they have failed to ask the "real" question. Since the Civil war the States have slowly given up their right to govern to the federal government and in the process we have lost the authority to govern ourselves. In that sense our form of Republican government has been a dismal failure.
To put this in a "nut shell" The question is not whether Prop 203 conforms to federal law, but rather federal law (the Harrison Act) conforms to the Constitution. Currently we are seeing the same argument being applied to health care. But unfortunately Brewer and Horne are not applying this logic.
To this end they are looking for any way to kill “Prop 203" with complete disregard for the constitutional democratic processes in place in Arizona. “The vote of the citizens does not count”, which unfortunately is another dismal failure.

I just happend to be doing my taxes for this year. I take one personal exemption and the standard deduction only, no mortgage interest or other tax deductions on $40000. I also applied the new formula for the three previous years. Under the new formula my tax costs would have increased by 13% over the four year period. For me to break even the
flat tax rate would have to be reduced to 1.82 percent.
For me personally this would be a tax increase

Don't forget to put "Oleanders" on the list. Ya smoke that stuff, you'll be dead in three minutes. Now there's a "dangerous drug"
Just think about all the jobs created with the "Oleander Police' rippin up back yards. Jan 21, 2011
The past two and a half years Arizona has averaged 300,000 unemployed workers. The maximum benefits amountin Arizona is $240.00. In many other states that amountis $390.00 week. Subtracting the 26 weeks of state benefit would leave 104 weeks of fereral extentions in that two and a half years. ecause the Arizona legislature has consistantly "low balled" benefits to arizona's unemployed this has caused the state almost a loss of "4.7 billion" dollars in economic impact over the two and a
half year period that would have been provided for by the federal government.
(130 - 26 X 300000 X 150)
The last I knew the federal tax rate is consistant across all states and the citizens of Arizona are just as responsible to pay back this money as the states that pay a higher benefits amount. This inpacts the citizens of Arizona who are subsidizing
those states higher ememployment benifts. This will reduce or extend lack of current growth and stagnate the future growth in Arizona with higher taxes without equal benefit.
This article is all about the "tail wagging the dog." Maybe something the "Brain Trust" at the state capitol may want to consider.
