Bad things are happening in Arizona … again. Good things too!
The extremist Arizona legislature enacted a law that just recently caused the banning of nearly 100 books from Tucson public schools. The list includes prominent Latino authors, plus Shakespeare, Thoreau, and James Baldwin. They even banned Zorro!
The real goal was to totally dismantle the Tucson school district’s Mexican American Studies program. Mission accomplished. The program is gone. Not a class survived. Continue reading

The attempted assassination of Representative Gabrielle Giffords raises the bar for political lies and hate to a new level. Previously, incendiary political lies stopped just short violent imagery. Sarah Palin’s Take Back 20 campaign presented a violent threat in the form of rifle site crosshairs placed over the congressional districts of 20 Democratic supporters of health care reform.
Ironically, Giffords sent Palin a clear message to end the violent allusion in the ads. In this brief video, she warns:
“… we’re on Sarah Palin’s targeted list but the thing is that the way she’s had it depicted has the cross hairs of a gun site over our district. When people do that, they’ve got to realize that there [are] consequences to that action.” Rep. Giffords
The appeal had no effect. It took the events of Saturday, January 8 at a shopping mall in Tucson, Arizona to finally get Palin to pull down her crosshairs studded map marking 20 Democrats for defeat as punishment for support of health care reform.

From various sources
Health coverage is not health care, something that escapes corporate media’s take on ObamaCare which forces Americans to buy into the world’s most expensive and one of the least effective health care systems. This bailout for the insurance industry is but another example of the economic war being waged by elites on the American public. ObamaCare also forces people to seek medical care only from Western medicine, which has a dismal record when looking at the skyrocketing rates in the US of chronic diseases, diabetes, autism, heart disease, cancer, etc.
States are fighting back – 21 filed suit to overturn this anti-freedom, plutocratic scam, and voters in three states have rejected ObamaCare: Missouri, Oklahoma and Arizona. Four states have already legislated a ban on ObamaCare: Georgia, Idaho, Louisiana and Virginia.
