Kyl may be Senate GOP Whip if Lott resigns

Crashing the GOP: Kyl, McConnell and Lott

TUCSON -- News from Washington today is the #2 Republican in the US Senate, Trent Lott (MS) will likely resign by the end of this year so he can make more money as a lobbyist.

The corrupt revolving door in DC between industry and government never stops.

A part of this story is speculation Lott will support Jon Kyl (R-AZ) to replace him.

Readers of this blog know I am no fan of Bush/Cheney puppet Jon Kyl, but I support Kyl for the Minority Whip position.

As Whip, a conservative extremist like Kyl will show people how badly today's GOP is out-of-touch with mainstream American democratic values, furthering the demise of the Republicans in the 2008 elections.

The downside for Arizonans is Kyl will continue to embarrass our fine state nationally and worldwide with his anti-public-interest politics.

With Kyl as Whip in DC focused on national party politics, and candidate John McCain everywhere but AZ or in the Senate, Arizona will essentially have no real voice in the Senate.

Dial 202 to reach these guys, not 602.

Go Kyl! Take the sinking Republican ship to the bottom.

Bush favors to mad cowmen lead to BLM suicide

Julie Cart and Maria L. La Ganga of the LA Times report today on a sad story at the Carrizo Plain National Monument in southern California. US Bureau of Land Management Monument Manager, Marlene Braun (below) killed herself after over a year of political harrassment from her boss, Ron Huntsinger.



Bush officials and BLM managers favored continued heavy livestock production on the monument, pushing to rollback conservation and management gains of the last decade, and attacking Braun for doing her duty to protect monument natural resources.



‘She was able to keep the grazing off the bottom land for the last four years. It was an amazing achievement compared to what had happened before it was a monument.’ Irv McMillan, a longtime cattleman and friend of Marlene Braun, seen below.



The tale of Marlene Braun's suicide is a sad and angering story of hostile ranchers and government hatchet men attacking public scientists and land managers.

Rep Patterson backs billboard veto, tells Gov hold

TUCSON -- Rep. Daniel Patterson (Tucson-LD29), expressed his support of Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s veto of HB 2757. This bill would have jeopardized jobs and millions in economic impact related to Arizona’s unique astronomy industry.

“I want to thank Gov. Jan Brewer for vetoing HB 2757, which would have allowed electronic billboards across our state to intrude on our clear desert skies,” Patterson said. “This veto will help preserve our beautiful night skies and the astronomy industry that has created so many jobs in Southern Arizona.”

Astronomers across the state were concerned that the electronic billboards would adversely affect astrological research in Arizona because they create light pollution that interferes with the telescopes and observatories.

Electronic billboards would diminish the ability to conduct the important astronomical research in Arizona. Legalizing electronic billboards would endanger future projects like the $130 million Cherenkov Telescope, which we ar…

Big gov't harassment inspires borderlands rhyme

SE ARIZONA -- 06 borderlands blues poem by a friend, a true story; spoken over trucker music, with harmonica.

Rolling down highway 83 in my big chevy.
US Border Patrol riding on my tail real heavy.

He's a pulling me over to the side of the road.
Checking to see what I've got in my load.

Nothing but a pistol and that ain't no shittin'.
A born and raised patriotic American citizen.

Now listen here copper, scolds my wife.
I sure don't appreciate you given us strife.

Leave us alone now won't you please.
We ain't your fans like those scared honkies.

(sing) Oh Border Patrol, Oh Border Patrol, please go back to O-hi-o.
Y'all are wrecking our desert home, so please go home and leave us alone.

(repeat)
