It really doesn't matter who you vote for. You still get policies aimed at the wealthiest:
"I'd say that contrary to what decades of political science research might lead you to believe, ordinary citizens have virtually no influence over what their government does in the United States. And economic elites and interest groups, especially those representing business, have a substantial degree of influence. Government policy-making over the last few decades reflects the preferences of those groups -- of economic elites and of organized interests."
It's exactly the same in our state legislature, possibly more so.
We interupt this moronic column for a word from Governer Doug Ducey.
"Howdy Folks, Gov. Ducey here. Just want to advise you Arizonans to enjoy things while you can. This time next year all public schools will be boarded up. There will be no clean water to drink or clean air to breath. The pigmy owl will be extint and all citizens will be required by law to own an automatic weapon."
"Y'all be well now"
Yeah, Arizona has lost it common sense and continue to elect those candidates that really care less about them. All these Republicans will support the agenda of the NRA and the Koch brothers and pass bills created by the ALEC. So Arizona continues the decline in about every way.
Our US Supreme Court has now made the big corporations and big funds the real voters. The majority has lost their voices and votes.
This nation ranks at the bottom now, below Russia, China, India, Syria, Iraq for the most criminal elections. The GOP wins, but it not what the voters want. The GOP is the biggest FRAUD party.
Dave Gallagher said "Has Arizona lost control of its own elections?" Of course it has, and in case anyone failed to notice, Americans have lost control of their elections too. They just didn't have as much money as the folks who bought this one.
Has Arizona lost control of its own elections? Too much outside dark money telling dark lies does make a difference.
I find it interesting that so many, including the soon to be governor, think pubic school spending is adequate while they spend north of $15,000 a year sending their children to really good private schools. And he ran on: Opportunity For All?
Why is it fashionable (and apparently societally OK) all of a sudden to write about "old white people". Old white people this, old white people that. Do you have parents Tom? I suspect they're "old white people". It's not the racial stereotyping so much, as the word old and the fact that it seems used as an epithet. It's disrespectful.
Well, the powers that be have succeeded. They kept us stupid and divided, and got what they wanted. Now, let's see what they do with it!
To have any positive changes in Government - All of these creeps need to get the boot . There is not much difference between Dems and Reps ! the way out is to vote independent . but Americans are to ignorant, uneducated and ill informed to see the writings on the wall .. they deserve everything they have coming as far as I am concerned ...
The best thing that can happen to the Democrat party is to have Republicans elected. Unfortunately, the best thing that can happen to the Republican party is to have Democrats elected.
DUCEY. DUCEY. DUCEY. READ EM' AND WEEP GIRLS !!!
Insults are all the left has...their policies have failed to heal the economy.
Hillary is so wrong. Democrats are the only entity that can't create NON governmental jobs.
So now you know it. Vote accordingly. I don't need to call anybody names.
Oh woe is me.
Anybody else here feeling compassion for CW13?
Such an obviously lonely fellow he is...
Off your Meds again, Warren?
AZ and the USA needs to vote overwhelmingly BLUE so we can be rid of the antagonistic, bigoted, chauvinistic Block & Blame Republicans and their exclusionary hateful input for any & all public policy decisions that scrape the backs bloody of people who are not straight but are definitely crooked rich white religious Republicans.
Hang in there and take care, everyone.
All the best,

And how do we spell Fife Symington?
And how do we spell Fife Symington?
Pretty bitter eh, Tommy. I'm white,retired and right wing. However, don't include me in the anti-union crowd. That would make me a hypocrit as every month I get a rather hefty pension check from the International Union of Elevator Constructors for all my years of building high-rise elevators in the Big Apple. When I almost got killed on the job Local One took care of me. Otis gave me dick.
And Doug Dum-dum' s so-called business success should have been done without the taxpayers supporting all the failed Cold Stone franchises via SBA loans. It should have been a rule that when a SBA default occurred the franchise fee should have been refunded, out of Dougie's success pocket to the US taxpayers.
I just wish the old dumb white retirees would have to live the principles they barf up. I am one, but I appreciate my pension and social security and Medicare. If right wing old white retirees had to live their believes it's would be all over. Those libtards and union commies got those pensions, social security and Medicare for you. Remember since the early 1900' s the right wing has been on the wrong side of EVERY issue in this country, child labor laws, women's vote, social security (all those Depression era people should have just got off their asses and get a job, rather than those welfare King WPA, CCC jobs), Medicare, Veterans benefits, wage and hour acts, etc, to the end.
Atomic asshole, yes. Demoncunts,sorry not me. But I do like it. Besides I never claimed to be civil. It's you dicks on the left that cornered the civility angle. Since when is being in your early 60's some kind of crime. I know you're too stupid to understand this, but please continue to call me asshole, uncivil and any other names you care to. Just like when you fools hit dislike, it makes my day.
