Re: “Danehy

We honored our war dead this Memorial Day weekend, flew Old Glory proudly & rejoiced that our Democracy remains strong! Meanwhile, here in Arizona, our liberties are under attack by the same people that we elected to run our beautiful state's government. Governor Janice K. Brewer remains beholden to the private prison industry & she insists on another term even though the Arizona Constitution forbids it. Attorney General Tom Horne thinks that he's above the law: he too aims to remain in office after being found guilty of a misdemeanor; he ascended to his office by violating our campaign finance laws & has engaged in inappropriate relationships. Superintendent of Public Instruction John Huppenthal won't help our dying & under funded schools but is pushing for vouchers to further erode the public school system & didn't lift a finger to defend T.U.S.D.'s MAS program. Maricopa County's Sheriff Joe Arpaio allows prisoners to be murdered by his prison staff & is found guilty of racially profiling Hispanics, but doesn't blink an eye in shame for his actions. The Arizona Legislature incorrectly believes that we sent them to the capitol to fight the Federal Government, cut funding for Planned Parenthood, destroy public education, pass laws to restrict local governments, try to minimize union influence in the workplace, raid any funds they like to balance the budget, etc. Oh how wonderful it is to be part of this grand republic in a sea of Democracy called the U.S.A. Veterans like myself wonder if we truly live in Arizona or in the Land of OZ?
