My brilliant idea for a bailout everybody plan

So, I’m driving to a meeting in downtown Phoenix today, getting more and more depressed about the state of the economy and this idea just hit me. I figured out a way to bail out the banks, the auto industry, and most average Americans. Are you ready? I hope you’re sitting down. So, the government […]

I’m mad as hell and, well, I don’t want to take it anymore, but all I can really do is vent about it

Blessed art the cowards, for they put the “phobe” in homophobia.

It’s been a few days since I’ve dipped my dainty Diva toe in the treacherous blog waters.   No excuse.  I’ve been lazy and reading other blogs.  So anyhoo, the Republic had an article in the Valley section about Prop 102 polarizing the AZ electorate along geographic and social lines. The print edition has a handy-dandy […]

East Valley Tribune Jilts DemocraticDiva.com

With all the hoopla over the federal election, I’ve been remiss in my local political reading.
