All our elections seem to have done is elect a bunch of junior politicians to collect more money from the rich.

Notice how the elections failed to mention the cost of the wars which are responsible for major depletion of our treasury.

And the blame our government received for shipping jobs overseas when it was the rich businessmen that actually did it.

I was in the Marines in Korea, but I remember Tarawa well.

Many men were dropped in the water way out from the island and had to wade in. Plenty were killed on the way in and more in the battle that followed.

I was a good friend of Doc Moyle later. He got PTSD from operating on so many men most of whom were under 20 years old. And he seemed to blame himself for losing so many men. Though it wasn't his fault. But Doc still blamed himself.

I was a Government employee until I retired in 1980.

In 1984 I went to work for a Government contractor in Diego Garcia. They bid 10 million dollars on a job that the Navy spent 13 million to operate.

But the second year they asked the Navy for 31 million. The Navy thought that was crazy and after six months settled for 19 million.

What do you want to bet that the next year they got 31 million.

That was 1984. What do you think they get today?

Arizona didn't pass an immigration law. There are a lot of immigrants in Arizona, including Hispanics. And they are just as American as any citizen.

The Arizona law instructs police to check for illegals. Not immigrants.

According to most voters in Arizona it is about time.
