Rants & Raves: Sept. 2, 2018
Got something on your mind? Tell us about it in 40 words or less.
Thanks to Mike Vax and band for a great jazz concert at the Elks. Too bad, though, about several people in audience around us talking out loud through the whole concert and checking cell phones.
A salute to John McCain, a true American hero and patriot, who never once toadied to that useless crew in Washington, D.C. He will be missed.
John McCain became more compassionate later in life. Same for me. Sure wish it would have kicked in earlier for me. Love you, Mr. McCain.
John McCain wasn’t Republican or Democrat. He was a pragmatic American.
Ever awoken at 6 a.m. and listen to the ravens, just a barking away. The airways are more open at that hour and they’re taking advantage.
Stop calling us Democrats, socialists. We’re NOT. We are capitalists as much as you are. We lean to the left, but are still a capitalist. So there.
New Prescott Animal Hospital building is a very good example of Post Modern architecture. My complements to the architect(s).
To the folks who complained about how educators and students dress, bruh. Seriously? We’re focused on education; not fashion. The next time you need a nurse, car mechanic, accountant, etc. … please remember that.
The big picture behind AzMerit test scores: the public school system is an expensive failure. Far better to give tax credits to parents and let them decide how and where to educate their children.
Jay Leno put on a great show the other night. The extra plus was the performance by On The Rocks, a local group that was fantastic!
We mark our wars with roman numerals – to keep the public in the dark. Our military requires 61 percent of our national budget. Will it, ever descend? When will a nation filled with paranoia find a way out of debt?
What a coincidence, Ted Kennedy and John McCain died from the same cancer on the same day.
City leaders say that Prescott is now a regional airport. So why aren’t Prescott Valley and neighboring communities contributing to the $1.8 million in Prescott’s subsidies planned for the airport this fiscal year – paid by Prescott taxpayers?
Now that John McCain has left the state of Arizona never to return. Who do we look up to now?
