The federal government has taken control of Arizona long ago. Bruce Babbitt made sure of that. The federal has so much control of the lands in AZ National forests, BLM land, National Parks & Monumernts, Military Bases, oversight of the indian reservations, who can reside in the state and not have to provide the responsibilities of a citizen. Mandate what the responsibilities of the citizens of Arizona are responsible for land management, fires, roads, medical cost and they refuse to pay the majority of the cost to maintain the federal mandates. Its really just a numbers game when you have states that have 2 senators and just one congressman because they dont have the population for more. like New Hampshire 600,00 or Deleware,orVermont, or Maine or Maryland. These Senators From these state have more authority over what happens in AZ than do Jan Brewer. The democratic party in AZ are just mindless minions of the handouts from the Alantic coast. Like puppies jumping to suckle to another meal from mom. Raul Grijualva wanting to follow in the footsteps of MLK but dont have the history or the knowledge of it. Gabby Giffords was another. virtually no diffrrence in the representation before or after the failure of the mental health system in AZ with Loughner and that tragety. We have the Veteran Senator that stops a campaign in the middle of the road for fear of reprisals from the east coast Senators. Another Senator that looks at the horizon and says I quit. Face it the West is controlled by the minority population that has a soundly majority in the Senate in the East. It was the frame work that the house of represenative and the changing of the population in to representation would balance this out. This has not happened and when the majority of legislation is passed by proxy in commitee and that goes to seniority. The congress has not even passed a budget as manidated by law. And each one of our congressmen will always say it's not in the budget, WHAT BUDGET???? you havent passed one. The west has lost allways has allways will till the senate is made up of every 4.35 congressional seats after each census.
DR. Carmona has been given so many postion of prominance because of his extremely impressive resume. And he has failed at everyone when he was administrator @ TMC. His conflicts and ME at the front and you all follow to the board had him sitting outside in less than 9 months, and reining in the trama center. Dr. Carmona time with the county and Kino hospitial failed to get a team of finincial accounting oversite board or get a team of professionals to take leadership of KINO. Then the county tried to outsource the hospital to private management. Working as the swat team surgeon gave him alot of publicity but really any military medic can do that job. All he got was an ego boost and carry a badge as a deputy. When our usless Sheriff needs to deploy security and establish procedures of assesed assults by mental health persons bringing them to the judical to preclude them from obtaining guns. Maybe a Physician working for the Sheriffs department could have helped in assisting in writing and make procedure. Then as appointed as SURGEON GENERAL, COMPLETELY aliennated himself from the congress and all the people involved epidemics, medications, facilities, insurance, medicare, medicaid, etc.etc.. Electing DR. Richard Carmonato the Senate will only add another milestone to his resume. He does not posess the social the knowledge or the management skill to run a campaign or a Senators office for that matter. Dr. Richard Carmon is a great trama surgeon and can run and set up a state of the art trama center. Dr. Carmona is a great shot with a handgun. DR. Richard Carmona will not be a even medicore Senator. Dr. Carmona is still waiting for the Democratic party to set up a campaign team, office, advertizing so he can take the helm as others guide. This has happened time after time.
I so much agree that the populace is not protected by the police or the courts. the Aurora Co. shooting, the Loughner killings, . What was mentioned about the Arivaca murders is informative the terrible killing of Juan and his daughter.. Was it race related or Drug related it falle to mention one of the assailents was Hispanic himself and was following stolen marijuania. Albert Gaxiola was also sentenced to 54 years in prision for his part. The other 2 White supremacists were in the drug culture and running and marketing.
The murders of two in Eloy by men dressed in camo?? is this racial motovation?? or is it profitiers robbing illegals, smuggling drugs, exploiting the plight of those that wander the desert insuch harsh conditions looking for a better life. And those that coyote them drug trafficers,Kidnappers. are almost always hispanic. Its just a jump and profiling to say that was race based.
The statement about JT Ready leads one to think it was raced based. He killed his own family. Not race based but based on his belief that his family and extended family didn't support his radical views.
the real problem is the call for hate crimes here which in itself is vindictive. All of these people had previous runin's with law enforcement and was still able to procure weapons and walk around unfettered. In each and Every incident of Mental issues were put before the law enforcement. Which failed to act There is ample laws on the books and the excuse of funding and prosecturial involvement are not carring the argument
I applaud Pia's joining DHS. A valuable asset to our home town and to DHS. I hope she can help guide the leadership to a responsible accountable agency. Take it out of the politics an into a agency that provides security and trust with the citizens of the great country.
I dont even know the reason for this articule. An old retired with dreams of grandor. Dosent have a chance in heck of getting votes past the single digit. Whats the point?
I have not seen any reportin of the District 3 race, this is going to be a real race. Amanda Aguirre. Running against Raul Grijalva. Amanda is from the same area as Raul, Has shown years of accomplishments 30 years running health care and Womens centers in YUMA. Has built a health care system similar to El Rio. Served in the AZ legislater.
And Raul still wont meet with or debate Amanda. The AZ Star wont interview Amanda. The AZ democratic party wont except her or give her information or the registered voter list of Democrats in her District . Their response we have a canidate in Raul and he is endorsed by Obama. We need to look at AZ, Yuma has the highest unemployment rate in the Nation, As well as foreclosures. Several of the growers and prosessors have left and sold their operation to chinese corporations. Reason they dont want to get into the boycott mess. Raul has displaced thousands of Hispanics in his own backyard by his reaction to SB1070.
While Raul Grijalva travels to Brimingham AL. looking for a rekindeling of the civil rights Issues. Just this last summer I was in Montgomery Selma,Tuskeege Brimingham, AL. Just take a look at those cities do we want to model ourselves like them?? These cities are nationally known but there is little hope for young families or growth through Education. While these cities have changed a Nation the Nation has grown past them. Leaving them slowly dieing from profiling and resentment for policy years gone. This is the Furture Raul Grijalva see's.
It just does no service to the People of AZ to find an expresive GOP person Who has filed some papers to run for office. Then point out inaccuracies and silly comments and how some take offence to them. Basically this articule is worthless.
Absolutley stupid political commentary only to amuse the writer and the feeble minded !
All of the alleged Illegalities stated here are opnions and have been struck down by the courts.
Florida voter polls and registration have been the most watched studied in the nation, It is no wonder to me that the Justice department is vocal in this as, today the justice department is partisan. This is most likely the reason for apathy by the people of Florida and the nation to take action and protest.
Florida has had so much voter manipulation, 2000 travesty of the national election and the pitiful wandering through the courts without precedent or cause,only ti wind up with the first and lower court ruling ( The state was to follow the protocol in place ) Never should a state be allowed to hold up a national election for it's own maleficenceof administrating an election.
I have heard the bellowing rant of so many calling for the right of the vote not to be infringed. Then most of the loud vocal so called progressivies that didnt like the change in the primaries of 2008 for president in Florida and Michigan just threw away the primiary election votes to keep Obama the canidate. If these state were allowed to participate in the national election Hillary Clinton would have been the Democratic Canidate for president.
It is very hard to rally people when the obvious justice department and national parties work with such obtuse disregard for the voter the votes cast and try to win election through the courts.
