Laugh it up, Ted. As usual, you don't know what you are talking about. Ducey is not a Tea party Republican. He's a liar.
And I would defend your right to express them, Ms Freeman ... with force of arms, if necessary. Can you tell me what right you would have to express your views, Ms Freeman, if you were to somehow succeed in depriving me and the other members of our nation of sovereign citizens of their right to keep and bear arms? Can you tell me what right you would have to, say, cross State lines on vacation or business without a government-issued permit? What right would you have to live where you wish, work where you wish at a job or career of your choice, if you, and the rest of us, are unable to defend your right to do so with force of arms, Ms Freeman? Indeed, what right would you have to publish a letter in this newspaper without first completing an interrogation as to your "upstanding citizenship," and then a search of your records to find out if you were telling the truth in the interrogation? What right would you have to submit a letter to the editor without first obtaining permission from your neighborhood party apparatchik? Ever heard of your right to due process? Ever heard of your right to be secure from being compelled to undergo an interrogation and search before receiving (or being denied) permission to exercise a right, Ms Freeman?
Be nice to Sylvia Freeman, guys, unless you know something I don't know (and you may). She sounds like what the Aussies call a "newchum" who knows nuttin'. Sylvia, I hope you read these forums and respond, because it is necessary for you to get a lesson in "immorality."
"Immorality" is when you allow someone to be murdered, raped, robbed, assaulted because you think it is "immoral" to carry the means of self-defense in public. It is a heavy responsibility, but it is not "immoral."
I hope you read this, because I and other citizens on this forum would like to know what skewed events in your life gave you such a skewed outlook on "morality." We'd like to politely offer you justification for adopting a more moral philosophy.
Did she hear of what, exactly? The bogus idea that only a State divorced from morality is a good State? And "let her go" where for all of us? I rarely agree with your far-left positions, Meria, but I usually understand them. This time it is no sense you are making.
Oh, in case you think it won't work, take note that the first one hundred years of our country, according to the authors of the book "1900" published at the turn of the century, the average working man, woman, and child improved their living standard more than anyone in the world had improved it in 25 centuries. The lowly laborer could earn enough money (real money of intrinsic value, not worthless paper that represents debt to the international bankers) to put six kids through high school. High school graduates could earn enough to put six kids through college. College graduates could earn enough to put six kids through University. There was a constant migration from lowly laborer up through captains of industry.
Why? Because the money was of intrinsic value, not debt money, and because no one -- even the few who truly deserved it -- expected something for nothing. It was considered shameful to accept charity. And yet, people who needed help received It from their churches, their communities, their fellow man and woman -- not government, stolen from other people at the point of a gun.
Tell you what, Mike: I'm going to give you a really startling tip on how you can really help turn Arizona around into a State with a thriving economy, plenty of jobs available, excellent well-funded schools, and one in which the poor will find themselves awash in abundance ... well ... provided they are willing to work for a living instead of sponging off everyone else: Start voting for true Republicans -- not RINOs, not Democrats in Republican feathers, and certainly not Marxists pretending to be Republicans. Start getting involved in politics and start voting to force the federal government to give Arizona the 70-some-odd percent of the State land it owes us so we can manage it and husband it and derive revenue from it. Vote against every freebie program that some leftist doofus comes up with, because every one of them steals money and jobs from the productive sector and gives them to people who see no point in producing anything if they can get paid for doing nothing. Oppose any legislative attempt to rob a person who produces value for society to grow with on the theory that he "owes" his talents to someone who can't or won't work, and whines that "It's not my fault."
Now, don't think I am not compassionate to the poor: The economy that the above will produce will make it really hard to be poor. The poor would really have to work at it to remain poor. And for those who truly deserve assistance, either permanently or a temporary hand up instead of a hand out, the economy would be so productive churches and charity groups would have all kinds of funds to help them out with. Americans are the most generous people on the face of the Earth, if Marxist doofuses will get the heck out of the way and LET THEM PRODUCE and LET THEM KEEP THEIR EARNINGS ON WHAT THEY PRODUCE! In other words, Mike, Capitalists produce jobs and a roaring economy. Socialists produce debt. Decide which side of that fence you are on and quit complaining. Start producing something and make yourself worth the air you breathe and the space you are taking up.
And so are their taxes and their tyrannies. Freebies for everyone is pretty hard on the State Treasury, and some times they have to crack down on those who object to their lives being micromanaged at the point of government's gun.
He'll need more than luck. Somalian warlords use naïve little know-nothings to lick the grime off their boots.
And replace them with the same "Progressives" that bankrupted the Soviet Union, have nearly completely bankrupted Venezuela in spite of its oil, and -- given the First Enemy Agent infesting our White House and his intractable sycophants in Congress -- is doing his level best to bankrupt the United States? I do agree they should identify themselves as Democrats -- or "Marxists" would be more accurate -- rather than perjuring their oath of office to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States.
Well, Meria, the Marxist Mafia subchieftain Eric Holder has now established a "pilot program" to federalize the police in various cities and has bought off the city administration in those cities with grants. The object is to establish the Marxist paradise in those cities so no one ever mistreats any minority by forcing him to work for a living and pay his own way, but of course never investigating a minority for any cowardly attack on a white person -- and don't think I'm being racist; I'm just pointing out that racist Eric Holder has had numerous opportunities to investigate attacks by minorities on whites and has carefully refused to do so, but let a white person defend himself from a potentially lethal attack by a minority -- specifically blacks -- and he's all over it like stink on rotten fish. You can investigate this 'pilot program' to finish installing cultural Marxism in our once free nation by checking out trustandjustice.com. So far six cities -- very liberal bastions of the Rule of Man over the Rule of Law, every one -- have been suckered into the program. One of the first training programs for the police will be how to respect the right of minorities to attack the police without expecting retaliation or self-defense. Since you have repeatedly expressed your disapproval of the only political party of any size that believes America is supposed to be founded on the freedom to keep what you earn instead of being robbed blind by those who think they have a right to the earnings of others, perhaps you would like to relocate to one of those fine utopian paradises, yes?
