A look at the 2012 ballot propositions

October 31, 2012

We have received numerous requests for assistance on the measures appearing as ballot propositions. It has been our policy not to print recommendation lists, since we have an engaged readership, whom we anticipate can sort things out for themselves after reading our many posts and availing themselves of other available information.

We concur with solid conservative Don Sorchych, publisher and editor of the Sonoran News with his views on the propositions.

 These are three we will comment on separately:

Prop. 115: NO. This proposition amends merit selection of judges. Many aspects of the current system are far less than meritorious. However the fact that the modifications are endorsed by the State Bar, the judges themselves and their lobbyists, should raise the antenna on anyone paying attention. The fact is, judges are going along with these changes because they fear something even more constricting in the future. An example of their eager agreement is based in the extension of their terms. Instead of appearing on the ballot for retention every four years, their terms would be lengthened to eight years and their retirement age from 70 to 75.  Proponents say the changes increase transparency and accountability. Only straight elections of judges — as occur in the vast majority of Arizona’s 15 counties — will accomplish that. Since the judiciary would fight such an incursion onto their turf tooth and nail, they have “reluctantly” agreed to these changes, which actually benefit them. Don’t be conned.

Prop 121:  NO. Although we refrain from endorsement lists, we have written several posts regarding Proposition 121, the sham known as “Top Two.” In a nutshell, the intent of this liberal-backed scheme is to skew the state’s primary voting system to benefit the left, which is why the Arizona Republic has been its biggest cheerleader. Seeing Red AZ has covered this topic calling the scheme a ruse devised to gut conservative influence in state politics. This post includes numerous links you may want to read: Judge Rea decrees “Top 2” goes back on AZ ballot.

Prop. 204: NO. This is the permanent extension of the temporary sales tax.  It is being sold as benefiting education.  In fact, its major beneficiaries are unions. Not a thin dime of the new, permanent one percent sales tax of over a $ billion a year, will be earmarked to address existing general fund spending. This post is one of several that have appeared on this site regarding this subject.

Liberal MSNBC mocks Romney aid efforts for storm victims

October 31, 2012

Obamites trash efforts as “fake, crass, petty and offensive” while asserting Obama “has a heart for the American people”

It is highly unusual for Seeing Red AZ to link directly to a site without writing our own commentary.  However, this report by Noel Shepard of NewsBusters is so shocking, that adding anything else would be a distraction.  Be sure to watch the despicable MSNBC video coverage and read the transcript that begins under the first paragraph of the report.

Meanwhile, “compassionate” Barack Obama is sending storm victims to the Internet for help.  No doubt this “heartfelt” advice is especially useful in areas suffering widespread power failures.

Leftwing media bias is alive and well, as Obama’s hollow words are compared to Romney’s actions.  Obama rates praise and Romney ridicule.

AZ Republic’s farcical senate campaign ad indignation

October 30, 2012

Past comes back to haunt McKyl

Today’s editorial in the Arizona República must have had a fair share of astute readers across the state spewing their morning coffee out their nostrils.

The high-minded editorialist exhibits a fit of pique over campaign ads (video link) used by Dr. Richard Carmona in which he showcases compliments heaped upon him by Arizona Senators John McCain and Jon Kyl during Carmona’s 2002 confirmation hearings when he was appointed U.S. Surgeon General by President George W. Bush.  McCain and Kyl publicly lavished praise on the then-registered Independent Carmona.  He, in turn, is using those clips to his advantage in the state’s tight senate race. 

But a decade later, the Senate Duo has a new honey. Six-term Congressman Jeff Flake is much younger, with blonde streaked tresses, an omnipresent plastic grin and a buff bod to flaunt. Who could blame them for dumping the older model who has lost more than a bit of hair and luster — and reregistered as an Obama-recruited Democrat, to boot? Their ire is understandable.  But it should be self-directed.

McKyl’s laudatory and effusive words are what they are. The Senate Duo couldn’t get enough of Carmona at the time. Now their besotted words haunt them. And the newspaper, which in March of 2011 soundly scolded Flake for falling off of their amnesty wagon while in campaign mode, joins the senators in exhibiting righteous indignation today. What a difference a year makes. In 2011, editorialist Doug MacEachern called Flake’s new illegal immigration posture “jarring,” disparaging him as a mere “politician” — no longer a “statesman” — for emulating John McCain’s campaign border epiphany, ditching his previous amnesty stance during his own last senatorial campaign.

When it comes to political expediency, memories can be short. Today the daily chastises Carmona (República’s new pay wall might prevent access) for using the glowing recommendations, calling the Carmona campaign’s defense of their use “pure idiocy.”

The “idiocy” more accurately was the extravagant praise — which continued long past the 2002 confirmation hearing. This exceedingly warm handwritten letter* from “Jon” to “Dear Richard” was postmarked in 2005.

It’s time for the newspaper and Team McKyl to give the sanctimonious indignation a rest.

More classiness from frantic Democrats

October 30, 2012

With Mitt Romney surging in early voting and even liberal polls forced to report his significant gains in this most crucial election cycle in our lifetime — the panic-stricken left is not content with simply exploiting children as we showed in this recent post.

Extremist MoveOn.org, with an assist from radical liberal producer Michael Moore, thinks this crude coarseness and threats of violence from America’s senior citizens is a worthy effort to boost Obama: (Viewer advisory)

Here are Michael Moore’s federal campaign donations. The Obama supporter has given 100 percent to Democrats since 1990

Dem Caddell exposes media as democracy’s enemy

October 29, 2012

Even Pat Caddell, who worked on the campaigns of liberals McGovern, Carter , Gary Hart, Joe Biden, and Jerry Brown, has had his fill

“When the press becomes an active participant,” [deciding] “what truth you may know as an American and what truth you are not allowed to know. They have then made themselves a fundamental threat to the democracy, and in my opinion, have made themselves the enemy of the American people.”

Listen to the words of former Democrat pollster and analyst Pat Caddell speaking last week at an Accuracy in Media conference, Obamanation: A Day of Truth. In his speech titled, “The Audacity of Corruption” he states, “I think we’re at the most dangerous time in our political history in terms of the balance of power in the role that the media plays in whether or not we maintain a free democracy.” Caddell noted that while First Amendment protections were originally provided to the press so they would protect the liberty and freedom of the public from “organized governmental power,” they have now clearly relinquished the role of impartial news providers.

Nowhere was this more evident than during the tragic deaths of a U.S. ambassador and three other American heroes in Libya that was lied about for nine days, because the press and the administration did not want to admit it was a terrorist attack.

“We’ve had nine days of lies over what happened because they can’t dare say it’s a terrorist attack, and the press won’t push this,” said Caddell. “Yesterday there was not a single piece in The New York Times over the question of Libya. Twenty American embassies, yesterday, are under attack. None of that is on the national news. None of it is being pressed in the papers.

Pro-Obama liberals indoctrinate, exploit children

October 29, 2012

More brainwashed children for Obama — instilled with fears of the alleged horrors a Romney presidency would bring.  Disturbing lyrics follow videos:

Remember this zombie-like indoctrination of young children from the 2008 presidential campaign? Their liberal parents gleefully applaud a teacher who instead should have been fired.

Imagine an America
Where strip mines are fun and free
Where gays can be fixed
And sick people just die
And oil fills the sea

We don’t have to pay for freeways!
Our schools are good enough
Give us endless wars
On foreign shores
And lots of Chinese stuff

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you

We haven’t killed all the polar bears
But it’s not for lack of trying
The Earth is cracked
Big Bird is sacked
And the atmosphere is frying

Congress went home early
They did their best we know
You can’t cut spending
With elections pending
Unless it’s welfare dough

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And we’re kinda blaming you

Find a park that is still open
And take a breath of poison air
They foreclosed your place
To build a weapon in space
But you can write off your au pair

It’s a little awkward to tell you
But you left us holding the bag
When we look around
The place is all dumbed down
And the long term’s kind of a drag

We’re the children of the future
American through and through
But something happened to our country
And yeah, we’re blaming you

You did your best
You failed the test

Mom and Dad
We’re blaming you!
