This video is one reason to be happy that as a registered Libertarian that choosing which Republican is best isn't a dilemma for me. In November that naturally the problem will occur. I can't wait to see if Democrat Gerard Davis (write-in candidate for State Treasurer) gets enough write-in votes to be printed on the November ballot. I am sad that deception and video editing has advanced so much that a untruthful point can be made with modern day tools. Oh well, thank goodness there are sharp people with sharp eyes.
Love it. Glue your comments to a talent that draws and G. Trudeau will have some competition.
Eh, section schmection. Thane Eichenauer

Just imagine this.. The media that is soooo last century talks up Vernon Parker (otherwise known as a nice guy that nobody remembers 5 minutes later) as the latest and greatest Republican wunder-dude to help him eek out a win against several marginally better Republican candidates before they unleash a barrage of pre-planned articles on how Vernon Parker the Town of Paradise Valley has totally and systematically underfunded their pension liability (this of-course is COMPLETELY without regard to the truthfulness of the assertion [like the media cares..]) after which Sinema walks to another squeaker win because the Republicans would rather loose then replace the current first past the post election system with either a proportional representation, a ranked choice or an approval voting system. Powell Gammill runs again and again spends the entire election season trying to convince voters NOT to vote for him and doubles his 2012 vote to 12.8% (from 2012's 6.4%). All the while Gammill's web site still claims that he is running for AZ CD-2. http://elections.nytimes.com/2012/results/states/arizona http://www.thelfactor.org/ So I predict. Thane Eichenauer

If forest fire protection has been cut too far what is keeping the State of Arizona or Yavapai county from purchasing, contracting for or goosing the revenue of the program that pays for forest fire protection? If the federal government is short a hundred million or two then I would suggest that McCain and Flake (and President Barack Obama) declare that it is past time to end the US government give away of hundreds of millions of dollars in tanks and jet planes (and other military aid) to Egypt (each and every year). Signed, Thane Eichenauer http://freebeacon.com/egypt-to-receive-f-16s/ 'The State Department has refused to cancel or delay the delivery of several American-made F-16 fighter jets to Egypt, claiming that the arms deal serves America’s “regional security interests,” according to an official State Department document obtained by the Free Beacon.'

Thank you for writing this article. There are less than 9 days left before Reader is turned off. I still have not found one clear favorite among the alternatives.

I went to the event at the county board of supervisors building Thursday as well as the followup party at the Respect Arizona office. I was very impressed by the passion of my fellow supporters who were actively gathering signatures up until 4:00 PM. I am very happy that everybody involved took on Sheriff Joe Arpaio as even having the opportunity to write your signature on a recall petition is an opportunity to let Mr. Apraio know that there are hundreds of thousands of people that are unhappy with the job he is (not) doing.

It will certainly be a far less interesting campaign without Hooshang Amirahmadi as a candidate. http://www.aljazeera.com/indepth/spotlight/iranelections/2013/05/2013521154930773484.html 15 days till election day even so. http://iranelectionwatch.com/ Thane Eichenauer

Given that Arizona voters have legalized medical marijuana in Arizona, thereby ignoring a federal law that "it doesn't like" I don't see how ignoring a few more (or a lot more) federal laws is likely to cause a neo-secessionist crisis. If the federal government stuck to regulating what it is charged with regulating the people of the various states wouldn't be motivated to take steps to ignore federal laws. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Article_One_of_the_United_States_Constitution#Section_1:_Legislative_power_vested_in_Congress As for impeaching Tom Horne I think that would be a wonderful thing to see. I think the odds of Horne being removed from office as a result are very-very low and that such an action could possibly work to his benefit but it would give the TV stations something good to cover for a few hours each day so hey, why not? http://www.azleg.state.az.us/Constitution.asp?Article=8 (Part 2) Thane Eichenauer

"Longterm, we need a ballot measure to repeal Prop. 108 (1992)" That would certainly be an interesting event. I would love to see what groups would fund such a measure, thereby stating publicly that they think it is too hard to raise taxes on the rich and the poor of Arizona. Shoot, I imagine you might even get Jan Brewer to drop a $20 bill to fund the effort. Thane Eichenauer

It is tough to have any faith in elected officals who believe that eliminating waste, fraud and abuse is going to accomplish anything that isn't already being accomplished. Do the folks that implement government program X, Y and Z start out authorizing waste, fraud and abuse and think that just because they add an after the fact addedum saying "Oh yea, waste, fraud and abuse are prohibited".

A hoodie is a poor choice in rain gear if you want to avoid negative attention. If you want to avoid negative attention wear an orange rain jacket and an orange rain hat. Nobody said it didn't serve a functional purpose against rain.
G-d bless those two, helping to stimulate the economy. Super Bowls need commercials to pay for all the overhead.

If you are going to accuse bankers of crimes there first has to be an actual law that the banker broke. Could you offer a couple of names and name the law they broke? I see a sprinkling of "Audit the Fed" in the video you included. Do you support that campaign?

I am all in favor of Truth, Justice and the American Way. However the Obama jobs bill seems to propose yet more government spending and $10 billion dollars more in government borrowing. I would suggest that should the Democratic Party actually want to pass the various provisions that it split the bill up into the various proposed projects thereby allowing Congress and We the People to pass what is good and reject that which is bad. Of course it isn't up to me but I am far more interested in getting an audit of the Federal Reserve via HR 459 than advocating for S 1549. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Jobs_Act I called Mr. Pastor today to ask him to support HR 459. http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h112-459

This sounds quite disappointing. Not terribly surprising though. The Republican portion of the duopoly is only motivated to enforce the law when the Democratic portion of the duopoly fails to obey the law. Thane Eichenauer
