I agree with him on the Carbon Dioxide part of the equation. China's pollution problem is Carbon Monoxide and you only have to see one picture of their smog to start a coughing fit. On a different topic, Meria is right about the crap being put into our skies under the guise of weather forecasting.

I understand the desire to codify this, but it is my understanding that the elected sheriff is already the top law enforcement official in their respective counties. I think the problem is that many of them don't see a need to enforce their authority and some don't care. However, I do think that Federal officers need to report to local authority and realize that the sheriff is the top law enforcement officer and the ultimate authority.

Sorry Meria, but it would've been a good law. It would've provided protection to small businesses, the ones most likely to have an objection to being forced to do business with someone who goes against your beliefs. I was sorry to see Gov. Brrewer cave in to large corporations and special interest groups.

Pat, while agree with you that employees can leave if they want, I will tell you that one of my sons is employed there, "gathering baskets" and he, along with the other guys, work there asses off getting those carts inside for customers and they do it in all weather! There are also some really friendly people working there.

Whether people can afford to leave is a different story. What really tugs at my heart strings is that fact that when I've gone to pick my son up after he gets off at 10 or 11 pm, is all of the very elderly ladies who are working there. I'm glad Walmart helps them with jobs, but there are so many that obviously have no other way to support themselves than to work so late at night.

And two things that really upsets me at Walmart are:

  1. Teenagers and adults who seem to be partying in the parking lot, especially in the early evening, and
  2. People bringing their pet dog into the store under the guise of it being a "Service Dog".

The real rub is that when he goes to prison, Mr. Voden will likely get his special diet, claiming some kind of need and the taxpayer will be stuck paying the bill.


H. Wm. Rhea III 1 month, 2 weeks ago on Gosar and staff unresponsive

I have to say that when I email his office, I do get a response. I have been writing, and sometimes cursing my politicians in every state I've lived in since I was 18 - a long time ago. I have to say that all of them, Democrat and Republican, have always respond quickly, no matter how I was treating them - and that includes Paul Gosar.


H. Wm. Rhea III 1 month, 2 weeks ago on Enrollment rises, but schools still $1 million short

Maybe they could ask the Christian school for a grant since they'll be selling of parts of FES for 10 times what they paid for it. Then again, maybe we ought to swap out the school board with the Christian school board - at least they had vision enough to see a good deal and make a profit off of it. The school board, not so much.

And when that mercury poisons all of our groundwater, we'll really be in trouble. The Gov't simply should not have the authority to ban things it doesn't like or that aren't popular. But they've taken that power unto themselves and we're going to pay for it.
