TUCSON -- Richard Elias will be the next chair of the Pima County Board of Supervisors. This is great. Elias is the most progressive member on a fairly progressive board.
Good luck, Richard. We need strong local government now more than ever to hold off the extremist state and feds.
Right now, the suckers in congress are giving constant canned applause to GW Bush's State of the Union speech. What a bunch of BS, Bush's never ending terrorism scare tactics and open ended wars. This is the worst president in modern times and he should be run out of town with the other crazy baldheads.
Charlie Rangel (D-NY) is sitting down, not clapping, as are many others with heart. Joe Lieberman (D-CT) is beaming and clapping like a lapdog. My congressman Raul Grijalva is not clapping, I'm sure of it, he may not even be there.
Voters need to clean house and boot the chumps this fall. Make Bush a truly failed lame duck. Take your 'patriot' act and shove it, GW.
Bush talks about 'oil addiction' but wants to waive environmental laws for open pit oil shale mining across the west, and not consider its addition to global warming pollution. More irresponsible jeopardizing of our future by BushCheneyBigEnergyDeath, Inc.
Richard Elias and the Pima board represent political hope in these dark times.
