My ViewDuring this critical time in our nation’s history, we must educate ourselves about what is really happening. We must clearly understand, be prepared to explain and discuss our positions on issues of importance and vote our conscience. To that end, I am sharing with you this excellent piece by George Ross. ~ Don Sorchych

Wednesday morning, Dec. 19, 2012, the Vice President was put in charge of a commission to come up with answers, in a month, to the mass shooting in Newtown. The time frame is ludicrous for such a complex problem. I sincerely hope that experts, not politicians, are on this commission.

Ordinarily, the start of a new Congress is a time for optimism. Fresh faces and a purposeful spirit combine to get Congress off to a hope-filled start.
Yet Capitol Hill right now is far from optimistic. That’s because last year’s session, with its distressing end by the edge of the fiscal cliff, left the new Congress confronting head on all the challenges that should have been resolved but weren’t: getting spending and the deficit under control, spurring economic growth, and reforming the tax code.

We don’t need political opportunists in Cave Creek much less on town council and especially if they are not full time residents. Knowing that it is a long shot because courts usually err on the side of maintaining status quo on election matters, I asked the help of a local attorney well known for his personal integrity and his advocacy for public rights; he agreed and reduced his fees to make it financially possible for me to file an injunction.
