Juan Mendez and Jamescita Peshlakai are wonderful bright lights in the dark and dismal Arizona House of Representatives.
Bible thumper Steve Smith exhibits his lack of intelligence in such an offensive act. Blindly following a superstition, like S.Smith did, ... and SIXTY joined him!!! ... demonstrates just how addled the minds of a large number of the member of this political body are.
Of course, this is the same group that considered a bill one of those sixty introduced that would have made passages from the christian bible legal defense in court against prosecution of crimes. You know those passages, don't you .... the verses that say it's okay to sell your daughter into slavery, and kill your child for disobedience and so on, ad nausea.
Candrea is the University of Arizona softball coach. Period! Griping about down years like this column does is disgraceful. I hope Coach Candrea ignores the drivel in this column.
When Flake was still in the house he sponsored an NRA bill that would require an act of Congress to authorize halting recreational shooting on sensitive areas of public land. That was the NRA's and Flake's response to recreational shooters mowing down giant saguaro cacti in the Ironwood National Monument, when the BLM proposed closure of the Ironwood to willy nilly shooting. Flake is the NRA's lackey and is another of Arizona's unfortunate choices in politicians. I donated to Richard Carmona's campaign and I also have to Gabby Gifford's and Mark Kelly's group that supported background checks, among other very good gun laws. I love Arizona and hope Flake's drop in the polls signals a shift in Arizona politics similar to the recall of Russell Pearce.
After decades of NRA membership and upon the NRA's attack of the BLM's proposed recreational shooting closure on the Ironwood National Monument, where shooters regularly mow down giant saguaro cacti with high powered long guns, I resigned. The NRA got one of their political lackeys, Arizona's Jeff Flake, to introduce a bill that would require an act of Congress for a resource management agency to close an area to recreational shooting. Upon Gabby Gifford's and Mark Kelly's formation of Americans for Responsible Solutions (http://americansforresponsiblesolutions.or…) I sent money to begin offsetting my decades of regretable support for the NRA.
What, pray tell, do the bible thumpers think about a devil as a mascot? Do the devout avoid sending children to ASU, because this costumed Scum Devil prances around athletic events with a pitch fork?
Hey, remember the kid who broke Sparky's pitch fork during a half time of an ASU v Arizona basketball game? That was the home game after Scummies taunted Steve Kerr in Tempe about his father's assassination in Beirut. I thought the fork breaker Wildcat Fan should have been awarded season tickets for life, but I think he was prosecuted for destroying state property. :-(
I hope the Ladycats beat the #4 Sun Devil softball team in the upcoming series. Go 'Cats!
