WHO KNEW HE COULD BE BOUGHT SO CHEAP?

By | Mar 2015|Categories: Jana Bommersbach - Blog|1 Comment

The only Democrat who voted for the disasterous state budget was Sen. Carlyle Begay of Ganado, who represents the Navajo Nation. He's on television this morning saying he doesn't vote for political parties, but for what's good for Arizona. Come on. Senator, you voted for the budget because the Republicans threw you a bone--$1.2 million [...]

CHILDISH PAYBACK???

By | Mar 2015|Categories: Jana Bommersbach - Blog|0 Comments

Did Arizona's universities take a collossal cut in their state funds because lawmakers were ticked off that ASU President Michael Crow DARED speak out against cuts? Is it possible that the Republican-led Legislature is so petulant and so childish that it would cut things EVEN MORE to show Crow who was boss? That has been [...]

A CRUEL, SELFISH, DANGEROUS BUDGET

By | Mar 2015|Categories: Jana Bommersbach - Blog|1 Comment

The Republican-led Legislature and Gov. Ducey have given Arizona a disgraceful budget that cuts deeply into the lives of most Arizonans and threatens the state's economy. In their zeal for "no new taxes"--translated in Republican jargon to "no help for anyone for anything because I'm a selfish fool"--they've in effect GROSSLY RAISED TAXES on virtually [...]

LYING ABOUT COMMON CORE

By | Mar 2015|Categories: Jana Bommersbach - Blog|0 Comments

I don't know if the stupid stick has hit the Goldwater Institute. I don't know if Tea Party is capable of recognizing facts when they see them. But I do know this: both are lying to Arizona about Common Core. They insist this is a "nationally imposed" standard, and a trick by President Obama to [...]

WHY IS ANDY BIGGS SO DENSE?

By | Feb 2015|Categories: Jana Bommersbach - Blog|1 Comment

Arizona has another awful distinction--it's one of only TWO states in the nation that does not prohibit texting while driving. Not because Tucson Democratic Senator Steve Farley hasn't been trying--for nearly a decade! But every year when he introduces the bill (which 44 other states have passed since he began, joining those already smart enough [...]

FOR LOVE OF HEAVEN…..

First off, Republic Editorial Writer Doug MacEachern is a personal friend of mine and has been for decades. Second off, sometimes Doug is blind as a bat. Including his Sunday column, when he took off on Schools Superintendent Diane Douglas for her suicidal attack on Governor Ducey last week. He and I agree she was [...]

IF ARIZONA WASN’T SO STUPID, IT WOULDN’T HAVE A CROWDED PRISON PROBLEM

By | Feb 2015|Categories: Jana Bommersbach - Blog|1 Comment

Please take your blood pressure medicine before you read this post, because it is going to tick you off, royally. The ONLY reason Arizona has a "prison crowding problem" is that it is the ONLY state in the entire nation that demands everyone convicted of anything--including minor, non-violent crimes--MUST serve 85 percent of their sentences [...]

HURRAH FOR ARIZONA–REVISITED

By | Feb 2015|Categories: Jana Bommersbach - Blog|0 Comments

When I was at KTVK, Channel 3, I did a weekly feature called "Hurrah for Arizona," showcasing things worth bragging about. Unlike the national impression of the Grand Canyon State, I found plenty of people doing wonderful things to make this a better place. Scott David and I won a Rocky Mountain Emmy in 2000 [...]

DISHONEST, UNDERHANDED AND COSTLY

By | Feb 2015|Categories: Jana Bommersbach - Blog|1 Comment

In case you didn't know, Arizona has plenty of proof that it is CHEAPER to operate state-owned prisons than private prisons--we know because there USED to be a law demanding the Department of Corrections regularly compare private and public prison costs. But the 2012 Republican-controlled Legislature REPEALED that law so that we couldn't see the [...]
