Y’all just look silly when you press this “states rights” nonsense.

Somewhere on the internets there must be a Legal Jargon That Makes You Think You Look Smart and Like A Super Patriot on Facebook Generator that spews out stuff like the following: The Federal Governemnt is not the “boss” of the states, and, the Founders intended it that way. States, not the Supreme Court or […]

They’re scared of their moms, really.

Don’t let this happen at YOUR State Capitol!! Oh noes!! What I see at the link is some ill-advised signs (possibly from provocateurs). But mostly regular people with women featured prominently. Tea Partiers, tell your moms why you don’t want them to get paid for teaching and nursing?

Walmart in Arizona 1. Walmart employees in Arizona 0.

So the AZ Senate Appropriations Committee voted to defund AHCCCS. That should make a lot of conservative Arizonans happy.

Ran into a state legislator while shopping tonight

Mark and I chatted with her about the special session for the corporate tax cuts and the general mood among Dem lawmakers. Most of what she told us wasn’t surprising: Everything the GOP majority is doing is to advance their drown-the-government ideology under the fig leaf of “job creation”. She said her Republican counterparts at […]

Shawna Forde’s Arizona.

Happy 99th Anniversary to our state and Happy Valentine’s Day. This also happened: (CNN) — An Arizona jury on Monday convicted anti-illegal immigration activist Shawna Forde of murder in the killing of a Latino man and his 9-year-old daughter during a 2009 vigilante raid she led on their home.
