The Washington Generals of the Class War begin shooting 3 pointers.

The Generals provided deliberately ineffective opposition as a foil for the Globetrotters’ comedy routines. The Globetrotters’ acts often featured incredible coordination and skillful handling of one or more basketballs, such as passing or juggling balls between players, balancing or spinning balls on their fingertips, and making unusual, difficult shots. The Generals on the other hand […]

Raising taxes? IOKIYAR

Governor-in-waiting Brewer raised some eyebrows yesterday when evoked the specter of raising taxes to dig Arizona out of the ditch we are in – mostly as the result of an orgy of rash and foolish GOP tax cutting over the past decade.  I about snorted my beverage through my nose when I saw her say it on the news […]

From the Rumormill

Yesterday I heard something even scarier than Governor Brewer. It has to do with a former legislator from Tempe and the Arizona Department of Economic Security. This is a woman who, as a legislator, voted against the repeal of spousal rape. She hates CPS. And since she lost her House seat in 2006 she has […]
