All goverment agencies have back upservers at other location specifically for this. (i.e. you work for the Federal government in Nebraska, you have servers at your location but you probably have backup servers at a location on the East Coast and they pobably have back-up servers on the West Coast). That why they say anything you send on e-mail is out there forever.
When in the Course of Human Events……….And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor.

I feel sorry for these hildren; however, I feel more sorry for our country that is letting this happen. Govenors Perry and Brewer need to acivate the National Guard and direct them to seal the border. We need to stop the hemmoraging first.
As retired USAF MSgt with 4 deployments to SWA, this may anger some veteran’s. First off, I never filed a VA claim because the issues I have are of my own doing (knee and hip pain from playing sports my entire life, ringing in my ears from listing music too loud). I definitely know that there Disabled Veteran’s that are deserving of VA compensation and treatment. However, in the last several years there has been a push to have everyone who is separating from the military submit a claim to the VA. You will see Airmen Schmo who served 3 years with no deployments submitting a VA claim for the knee he hurt when sliding in to second base playing softball and get 30% disability. It’s also well known to get a sleep assessment prior to separating/retiring so you can claim sleep apnea and receive 50% disability. (Tell me how the military caused these?). I guess what I’m saying is that part of the backlog with the VA is the frivolous claims that are being submitted in this entitlement society that we have become.
This doesn’t justify what the VA personnel were doing, however, if we could reduce the backlog of frivolous claims it could help with the backlog of appintment. Additionally, Government employee accept the job with the government because of the decent pay/benefits they receive no bonuses should be paid for coming to work.
0%-30% Medical is through local hospitals
40%70% Fall under Tricare and utilize local hospitals
80%-100% Utilize VA hospitals

I believe it was 2001 after UofA lost to Duke and the 3 refs in the NCAA Final. People started rioting on University blvd and the cops had to use tear gas and fire bean bags into the crowd. One individual was hit in the eye with a bean bag; he in turn tried to sue the Tucson police. It was thrown out of court after video showed that the same individual had been throwing beer bottles and rocks at the police. I’m pretty sure upon further review it will show that this individual was not just an innocent by-stander. Rule of thumb, if the police show up in Riot gear it is probably time to vacate the area, because if you don’t you essential become part of the unruly crowd.
Unfortunately, this is just another story of bad news coming out of Tucson (or as liberals want to call it the State of Baja Arizona). We tend to take something good (the basketball team going 33-5 and making it to the Elite 8) and turn it into a mess.

The majority of active duty personnel are conservative by nature…Disipline, Structure, Integrity, Service, Excellence, God, Country, Honor are just some of the things they (we) love. However, because of the oath they have take they cannot voice there opinions. Once they separate or retire from the military they become very vocal becuase they are worried for their military and their country. They are seeing the change for the worse right before thier eyes. In the last few years there has been an all out assualt on the military from the left; doing away with DADT, trying to remove prayer from functions, trying to slow roll the absentee ballots during elections, sequestration which slammed the military was 0bama’s idea just to name a few. 0bama said he was going to raise an army the would rival the military and you can see that with Homeland Security and FEMA. The day is coming and Vetereans will have their say before its over.

Sara Palin bought a house in Scottsdale in 2011 and her daugther now lives in Phoenix. I think there might be a plan in motion already. By th way all my donations are going directly to TEA Party Reps and Senators; no more more to the Republican Party.

If the Fat guy from Tucson would spend as much time assisting his American Constituants as he does Illegal Aliens his district wouldn’t be such a S%#t Hole. Better yet he needs to resign or go hide like he did after his stupid statement about boycotting Arizona a couple of years ago.

If only my two reach across the aisle Senators (McCain and Flake) could stand with this man. It seems every time they reach across the aisle we get bent. McCain please resign and Flake gets your priorities in line with your constituents.
I can see it now a Paul/Cruz or Cruz/Paul ticket in 2016.

I spent 20 years on active duty and the only personnel carrying weapons on base at home station were law enforcement. For deployments, it depended on where you were at (Iraq-Yes, Qatar-No). As for those who say the military is trained to handle weapons and should be carrying at home station; if you are in a support position you probably were were only trained once every 2 years or prior to a deployment. Think of the logisitcs and cost of issuing out weapons to every military member on a base; imagine 5000 personnel being issued and checking in thier weapon and 30 – 60 rounds for each weapon everyday; an eight hour day just got extended to 12 hours. Even Marines who say every man is a “riflemen” do not issue weapons out at home station because logistically it can be done with accountability and control.
I challenge everyone to listen to Air1 or K-Love for 40 days; It will change your life. I used to listen nothing but Rock stations and sevral years ago I came across K-Love then Air1. I have been to several concerts to include The Newsboys, Third Day, Mercy Me, Casting Crowns and they were all inspirational and fantastic shows. Now when I listen to the regular rock stations I only listen for a short period before I change it to Air1 or K-Love.

I am an American of Mexican descent, my family and my wife’s family has lived in Arizona since before it was a state. When we have a family get together and the subject of illegal immigration comes up we’re all against it. If you drive around areas of south Tucson it looks like little Mexico. These people don’t want to be Americans, they don’t want to assimilate to the American culture, and they don’t want to learn English. They want to bring Mexico here. They want to live here not pay taxes and receive free medical and other benefits that out government allow them.
I do understand that there is a percentage that wants to come to here to better them, but those seem to be few and far between.

Interesting that Prop 8 was voted in overwhemling in California by the same people who voted obumer into office (Minorities and Youth).

I’m from Arizona. I respect Senator McCain for his service, but it is time for him to go. These old dogs are part of the problem; they have been around to see the deficite go from 1 trillion to 17 trillion and they think they can fix it. Step aside and let some new blood take over.

This vote goes against local Boy Scouts troop. I’ve seen survey statistics from some of the local Boy Scout troops and they are overwhelmingly against allowing gays. More like a 70-30 split agianst.

What’s the old saying “There are no athiest in fox holes, and I’m pretty sure when the storm was right over Moore wreaking havoc there were no athiest in Moore. They were all looking for some sort of spirtual guidance to get them through.
You don't know that and you're a jerk for assuming that. Talk about not letting a crisis go to waste.
She was too busy taking action, trying to survive. Others that relied on prayer died. Some that prayed lived. Some that did nothing died and some that did nothing lived. Ahh, the power of prayer! You know that many devout Christians and Muslims (there were probably a few there) were thanking their god for saving them, while at the same time, some of their equally faithful friends and neighbors were killed, injured or had their property destroyed by the very same god. How arrogant of them.
