This is one of the major problems with having so many former prosecutors sitting on SCOTUS. Not one of them was a criminal defense attorney before being appointed. And we all know that Justice Alito has yet to find a police action he is against.
I thought the modern Republican Party was about "of the corporations, by the corporations and for the corporations."

I think he is willfully ignorant. Conservatives have always hated the programs enacted under FDR and have attempted to use every means possible to discredit those programs and/or their need. The only government spending that conservatives wish to acknowledge had any positive affect in ending the Great Depression is the massive war spending of World War II. Kind of like today, where the right wing nut jobs believe that government can't create jobs but refuse to cut spending on military weapons systems because, wait for it, military weapons contractors will have to lay off people. Yeah, wrap your head around that bit of nonsense.

Sadly, this ballot measure will pass by wide margin.

Wait. Isn't the forcing of marriage or "marriage lite" the act of big intrusive government? Oh, that's right, IOKIYAR. Besides, we all know that it isn't about the kids (cause we all know they only care about a kid until it is actually born), it is about controlling women. Making them subservient to the wills of men.

I want ENDA to pass, but not in its current version with a carve out for religious bigotry.

They acted in "good faith"? Really? They knew exactly why they were the conduit for the funds and what they were doing, which was laundering "dark money" for in order for the Kochtopus to get around disclosure laws in California.

Look in the bright side: It only took them 5 years to "document" these cases of voter fraud. And just in the nick of time too. Rather coincidental that these cases are being mentioned as both Arizona Secretary of State Bennett and Arizona Attorney General Horne push for even more voter suppression.

Let's home that Democrats don't do what they normally do and throw Professor Guth under the bus. Funny how the first reaction of Kansas Republicans, who control the entire state, try to violate Professor Guth's First Amendment rights.

But doesn't this "initiative" violate the "one purpose" clause, due to it tying government spending to retirement fund "health" while also eliminating future elected officials from receiving pensions?

You mean, you getter results if you actually deal with the affects of poverty than by just teaching a test to break those nasty teachers' unions? That can't be right, because my local TeaPublican elected official says that can't be right. /end snark

This is just the escalation of the "culture war" declared by Pat Buchanan at the 1992 Republican National Convention. Every authoritarian movement comes to a point where "party purity" must be achieved before "cultural purity" and the "tea party" movement is nothing if not authoritarian.

This is an incredible idea and coupled with Oregon looking to do universal voter registration, they may just become the most progressive state in the union.

One very glaring item missing about all of this tax talk is sales tax. The sales tax eats up after tax pay of the poor, working poor and middle class at a proportionate rate than the wealthy. Especially since the wealthy don't spend every cent of their after tax pay as the poor, working poor and middle class do.

I always find it interesting that when Phoenix Councilman Sal DiCiccio loses at the city level, he goes running to the Legislature to give him a win. He has done that time and time again.

As they say, the devil is in the details and the details are very devilish indeed. Isn't it nice that our taxpayer dollars are directly paying for religious indoctrination?

It's also possible (and I believe it is), that "performance funding" is unconstitutional as it creates that unequal funding that got several states into trouble with the Federal courts before.

But see, in the tea-Bircher mind, the 14th Amendment doesn't exist. Only the 2nd and 10th Amendments. And the 2nd Amendment only exists for whites, not for those "colored" folk.

If I am not mistaken, doesn't Mr. Murdoch own a cable news network that he could direct to push for stricter gun control laws?

This is why I believe these changes need to be made at the ballot box.

This is one of the major problems with "charter" schools that I have: They are legally allowed to decide which students it will teach. This heavily skews results of individual "charter" schools and doesn't give a true picture to the public at large.

Our local media doesn't want to know. They just enjoy being the cheerleaders for "charter" schools in Arizona.

It doesn't surprise me that a "tea party" Republican would game the system. They are always complaining about how corrupt and broken government is, then go and prove it by doing something very possibly illegal like this. At best this is a campaign finance violation at worse it is money laundering. I wonder what the DOJ has to say about it.

As I have said many times before, the "tea party" movement is nothing more than microwaved social conservatism. They wish to deny it, but the evidence is so clear that they won't be happy until they have turned that United States into the United Christian States. Their theocratic fascism is a clear and present danger to our nation. www.PhoenixJustice.com
