Arizona´s economy lifted
by government spending

Arizona Republic [Phoenix,AZ], by Ronald J. Hansen

Original Article

Posted By:Fiesta del sol, 7/20/2014 10:28:19 AM

Arizonans — and the companies that do business here — have a complex relationship with government. Its tax ­obligations, inefficiencies, regulations and occasional ­incompetence are hard to take for many. But the money from Washington, D.C., is a powerful force in the state´s economy. Many people rely on it as a sole source of income; many businesses cultivate it to grow their profits. For decades, Keith and ­Dorothy Stebbins lived comfortably in California on their incomes. They worked in sales for the oil and hotel industries and invested little. They retired to Arizona, where they now live off Social Security

Comments:
Ahem, the money is not from DC. It is confiscated from 50% of Americans who pay taxes.

Some of is is from taxes most of it is just printed.
That means all of jobs "created" by government spending are fake.
Like I dig a hole for one day and next day I will fill it up.
Nothing substantial out of it but I will work and I will be tired and of course I will get paid.

After reading CTH´s expose on the regime´s plan of transforming America, this comes as no surprise. Juan mccain is just one of many who has sold this nation down the river. The fact they have been working on this invasion since 2012 is absolutely one to leave you speechless Jan Brewer, where to you fit in this puzzle. We believe we know Juan and his place in the jigsaw. Thank you SD for your effort in bringing this to the attention of many. And more important for Texas, where does our Governor fit? Or Cornyn?

To better understand the elaborate tripe set forth in this Sunday edition article of "The Arizona Republic," one must first understand the motive of the publication and the context in which it is offered.
The "Republic" (nicknamed The "Repugnant" by AZ Conservatives) is owned by Gannett, and has spent the last decade and a half doing the bidding of the "Open Borders" Lobby, always portraying illegal aliens as "noble," and censoring mention of the immigration status of illegals who commit additional crimes in Arizona.
The newspaper committed itself to the unabashed promotion of Janet Napolitano --first as Governor; then as Obama´s Secretary of Homeland Security.
The publication claims to be "Conservative" because of its endorsements of Sens. John McCain and Jeff Flake--but that support is predicated on the Senators´ continued advocacy of Amnesty for Illegals.
The Corporate Powers at Gannett have seen this paper´s circulation decline dramatically; yet they persist in pursuing a Leftist agenda, as demonstrated in this article.

The Federal Government does not earn one red cent! They simply take it from earners and redistribute it to non-earners or return some of what they´ve taken back to those they took it from. This is nothing but a shell game and the same gullible folks that fall for this phony book keeping are the same lowfo people that put this incompetent administration in the White House.

President Obama was nowhere to be found during the beginning of a meeting of the NATO-Ukraine commission in Wales on Thursday. Obama was "noticeably absent" from the start of the meeting, according to a White House pool report, although U.S. Ambassador to NATO Douglas Lute was in attendance.Obama was late to the Ukraine meeting because of other meetings on Afghanistan and a meeting with King Abdullah of Jordan, according to a White House official.Back at the Ukraine meeting, leaders were addressed by NATO Secretary General Anders Rasmussen, who urged Russia to stop the "illegal" annexation of Crimea. “We call on Russia

When Texas Gov. Rick Perry was indicted last month on two felony charges stemming from how he dealt with a misbehaving Democratic state official, the image of the stuttering 2012 Republican primary challenger was replaced with that of a hero-cowboy in the eyes of many conservatives. Perry was under attack from the left wing, and his response was not to apologize but to walk through a hail of blue-hued bullets and emerge laughing, without a mark on him. But some conservative true believers have begun to notice something rather suspicious: The company Perry keeps seems more suited to a mainstream

Andrew Madoff, 48, was surrounded by family as he ´died peacefully´ at Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York on Wednesday morning, his attorney, Martin Flumenbaum, said in a statement.His death comes four years after his brother Mark killed himself on the second anniversary of their father´s arrest for a $65 billion Ponzi scheme.

Nick Olivas became a father at 14, a fact he wouldn´t learn for eight years. While in high school, Olivas had sex with a 20-year-old woman. As he sees it now, she took advantage of a lonely kid going through a rough patch at home.State law says a child younger than 15 cannot consent with an adult under any circumstance, making Olivas a rape victim. But Olivas didn´t press charges and says he didn´t realize at the time that it was even something to consider. The two went their separate ways.

Nancy Reagan was right. I’m not talking about when she told kids, “Just say no to drugs.” Simplistic as that advice was, it could have saved a lot of people a lot of pain — just like Michelle Obama’s efforts to get kids to eat healthier food. But no, it’s not the former first lady’s anti-drug campaign that’s been on my mind lately. With conservative critics taking aim at President Barack Obama’s ill-timed trip to Martha’s Vineyard while trouble flared from Ferguson, Missouri, to Iraq and Syria, it’s Reagan’s riposte to those who took issue with her husband’s frequent time

There is a fun foreign policy game making all the rounds in Washington D.C. this summer: Pin the tail on Barack Obama. Its appeal is not hard to understand; it´s so easy to play. Step 1: Pick a foreign crisis that touches even slightly on U.S. national security interests. This shouldn´t be hard, because the United States defines practically everything in the world as being an American interest.Step 2: Make clear that this is no garden-variety problem but rather "the defining crisis of [OBAMA´S] presidency," or a threat to the "very foundations of global order" or the answer to the question,

Among the many questions swirling around the Josh Shaw story at USC, one more has popped up. How does a college athlete end up with a high-profile lawyer whose client list has included Rihanna and Snoop Dogg? Shaw, who lied about how he injured both ankles last weekend and has been suspended indefinitely from the team, is being represented by Los Angeles attorney Donald Etra. "I do not discuss financial agreements between me and my clients publicly," Etra said when asked about how or if he is being paid. "It´s a privacy issue and a matter of professional ethics."

The No. 1 priority in electing someone after President Obama should be finding someone who does not believe the world conforms to his worldview simply because he says it does. It’s a very dangerous state of mind. Speaking at a $15K-a-plate DCCC fund raiser tonight, natch, CBS correspondent Mark Knoller quoted Obama: Pres Obama said “The world’s always been messy … we’re just noticing now in part because of social media."—if Knoller weren’t so serious, you could be forgiven for thinking it was satire. After a barrage of “WHATs” and “WOWs” and “LOLWUTs” on Twitter, in came the grim mockery:

Maxine Waters — the fiery liberal from Los Angeles known for calling House Republican leadership “demons” and threatening to nationalize oil companies — has gone from the scourge of Big Business to a sympathetic ally for corporate America. It’s no accident.Waters is executing this transformation by seizing on the growing divide between conservative Republicans and Big Business and leveraging her position as the top Democrat on the House Financial Services Committee, where in the coming weeks she will play a role in the battles over extending a terrorism insurance program and the Export-Import Bank.

He had just hung up the telephone with the devastated parents before heading in front of the cameras. Unusually emotional, President Obama declared himself “heartbroken” by the brutal murder of an American journalist, James Foley, and vowed to “be relentless” against Islamic radicals threatening to kill another American. But as soon as the cameras went off, Mr. Obama headed to his favorite golf course on Martha’s Vineyard, where he is on vacation, seemingly able to put the savagery out of his mind. He spent the rest of the afternoon on the links even as a firestorm of criticism erupted over

Lt. Col. Tony Shaffer (Ret.) is a CIA-trained former senior intelligence officer who wrote the book Operation Dark Heart about the Special Operations successes in the early stages of the Afghanistan war. He also famously reported to Congress that part of the intelligence breakdown prior to the 9/11 attacks was due to communications failures between the CIA and the Defense Intelligence Agency’s “Able Danger” project which had identified Mohamed Attah’s terror cell in Brooklyn in 2000. Thursday morning, Shaffer appeared on WMAL radio in Washington, D.C., to discuss the ISIS execution of American journalist James Foley earlier this week. He

State Department spokesman Jen Psaki makes me psick. If you read P.G. Wodehouse, you know the “P” in her name is silent, as in “phthisis,” “psychic” and “ptarmigan” (as Wodehouse’s Psmith explains). And Psaki’s colleague Marie Harf makes me barf. Together Psaki and Harf give the catastrophic foreign policy of the Obama administration a lighter than air, Valley Girl kind of feel. It’s a novel use of expressive form. Paul Mirengoff explores their weightlessness in the adjacent post. As Paul recounts, Harf came to the defense of Psaki when Bill O’Reilly had the temerity to utter pslightly pscathing words about Psaki

Obama, Vice President Joe Biden, and Secretary of State John Kerry were joined by some of Washington’s most established foreign policy hands, including Clinton National Security Adviser Sandy Berger and Zbigniew Brzezinski, who held the same position during the Carter administration. Former Obama national security adviser Tom Donilon was also at the dinner, as was former Undersecretary for Defense Policy

The beatings of three people in a Kroger parking lot Saturday night will not be investigated as a hate crime, according to police officials. Memphis Police Department director Toney Armstrong said he’s had lots of calls asking how the investigation would proceed but said there is “not sufficient enough evidence to investigate this as a hate crime.” “I know this has a lot of racial undertones,” Armstrong said during a news conference Monday at Memphis City Hall. “I’ve gotten a lot of calls and I know (Memphis Mayor A C Wharton) has as well.

In a few days president Obama will unveil his strategy to destroy ISIS to a waiting public. (Snip) However the basic outlines of the strategy itself have emerged from information already available to the press. A Los Angeles Times story suggests that Obama will rely on proxies to fight ISIS at three levels: on the ground, within the region and in the West. Kerry invokes comparisons to the Sunni Awakening, seeking to recall the days when al-Qaeda in Iraq was beaten by George Bush. Obama plans to organize the Sunni Arabs to fight ISIS.

Half of all bird species in North America — including the bald eagle — are at risk of severe population decline by 2080 if the swift pace of global warming continues, the National Audubon Society concluded in a study released Monday. "The scale of the disruption we´re projecting is a real punch in the gut," said Gary Langham, chief Audubon scientist.

The company said it wants to ensure that "customers and associates feel comfortable and welcome” in its restaurants. “We ask that guns not be brought into this environment unless carried by an authorized law enforcement officer," the eatery chain, which boosts 1,800 locations in the United States and Canada, said in a statement Monday.

The Obama administration will make a decision on executive action to prevent corporations from leaving the country in the "very near future," Treasury Secretary Jack Lew said Monday morning. Speaking at an event on business taxes at the Urban Institute in Washington, Lew placed the responsibility on Congress to address so-called tax inversions, but said that the administration was prepared to step in if lawmakers don´t move quickly enough. Inversions are tax maneuvers in which corporations buy firms in low-tax countries in order to place their headquarters in that country. Such deals have grown in number in recent months, with

Churchill came under intense scrutiny and was fired by the University of Colorado at Boulder. What concerned Kelly most in the first part of the interview was that “little Eichmanns” comment, the argument being that Eichmann played a role in horrible atrocities even though he didn’t directly carry out the Final Solution, which he views as similar to the financial
