I was more sturck by the first sentence, "Payson has 54 employees whose salaries and retirement benefits tally more than $75,000."
Per capita income in Payson is $19,513; for the state of Arizona the per capita income is $20,275...less than one-third of these 54 town employees.
Sorry about the name calling, but I have been called a socialst, hippie, troll, thug, etc., by these same guys year after year. Just get a little tired of their same old rhetoric. I have been accused of being at Woodstock, but I was really in Vietnam when Woodstock took place. I've tried to have sensible discourse with these "gentlemen" over the years, but I have just run out of patience with them.
To quote a man I saw yesterday on TV, "You are entitled to your own opinion, but you are not entitled to your own facts".
When I pointed out their lies in the past, they complain about "Free speech"; yet when I speak out against them, they call me names.
They don NOT have my respect.
No surprise that I'm one of the first to respond to your request. Having said that: yesterday on CNN I saw a man responding to the "study" that immigrants have lower IQ's than citizens in the USA, and will continue the trend for generations to come. This man made a comment I'd heard before that makes a lot of sense, "You are entiltiled to your own opinion, but you are not entitled to your own facts".
I would love to stop responding to the inflammatory letters that appear in the Roundup, and it would make my wife very happy too, but when someone states that the Prez is a Muslim, communist, socialist, Kenyan, and is trying to take all our guns, and take over the country, then compares him to Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot and any other villian from the past etc., etc., ad finitum, I can't help myself.
I have suggested in the past to you, the editor, and the editors before you, please stop printing outright and obvious lies submitted by extremists and haters.
I'm sure the usual suspects will appear quickly, posting more denigrating comments about me for speaking out...and so on it goes.
Now the cops are chasing the card holders? What the heck? A Payson detective is going to Pine and Strawberry to arrest legal card holders. You guys closed the only legal medical marijuana store in the county and that is still not enough for you?
The voters of ARIZONA voted in medical marijuana two and a half years ago...now you want 10 foot high metal, concrete, or stone fences with 1 inch metal gates?
You are violating the rights of the people while complaining about Obama wanting background checks...Go after child molesters and rapists and burglars and leave the old pot smokers alone.
Hinshaw and Cline: Glad to see you still have someone around to type your letters for you. You claim that just because Wayne disagrees with you it doesn't make your lies less truthful. Obama is not a Muslim; whoever says so is a liar. Democrats are not communists; whoever says so is a liar. I doubt that Wayne is a "totalitrian thug" as you so falsely claim; hell, what is a totalitarian thug anyway? And can we ever let Hitler, Stalin, Pol Pot and Cheney rest in peace!!
You peckerwoods make me howl. Ted
Free speech does not mean you can LIE and be published! Obama is NOT a muslim. Democrats are NOT communist thugs. I wrote a similar letter to the editor last week; still not publishied, asking if you were on the Board Of Regents why would you even consider bringing an institution of higher learning to a town where the local paper continues to publish such BS. YOU SHOULD NOT PUBLISH LIES! Opinions pulled out of Renecks butts are NOT FACTS.
Kim, Bill was the MAYOR; Why wouldn't he use town letterhead? Our gov uses the State of AZ letterhead to write crazy stuff all the time that not all of the pols in AZ agree to.
PS, you can deny over and over but it's the Teabaggers and the Conservatives, not liberals, who keep bringing the hate against our black President, that you referred to as "Obummer", along with ALL other minorites.
I have followed Evan's rants for years and I have a pretty good feel for what goes on in that paranoid head of his; and above all else he is a hater.
I knew when I looked at Mr. Rappaport's excellent letter about common sense background checks, there would be a comment and it would be from the usual first clown out of the clown car; Evans has proven me right again. This time the clown car is armored and I'm pretty sure Donald C. will be the next one out thinking he is shooting such bullets of wisdom which in fact are just more BS blanks. Less than 10%, that is TEN PERCENT, think background checks are bad. The same percentage of mentally ill persons in America according to my Psyhology class professors!!
Keep it up guys, you think you are so deep and mysterious; I remember your type sitting on Coke crates in gas stations and domino halls in East Texas in the 1960's: Whittling, spitting tobacco juice on the ground, and complaining about how the Blacks are getting too uppity. You anachronisms crack me up!
Donald, I saw last week when you called the Democrat Party "Communists" and the Prez a Muslim...now I remember where I last saw you..playing the banjo in "Deliverance" wasn't it!!:)
Evans, you are without a doubt, the most paranoid person in the County. Now I know that's saying quite a lot when you consider your "gang of 5" who are always telling us how the Kenyan is goint to take our guns and then our women, but I think you have them all beat...hands down. Finally, you are the most outstanding cracker in the field.
