The Stench of Voter Suppression is All Over Arizona

During the Obama 2012 election, we had a great voter registration effort..which also added many voters to the Permanent Early Voter List (PEVL)..I guess the republicans don't like it...people voting that is..the PEVL is very popular...

May 11, 2021
WASHINGTON, D.C.—Gov. Doug Ducey (R) signed SB 1485 into law on Tuesday afternoon. The voter suppression bill, passed by the State Senate only an hour before the governor signed it, significantly revises the state’s Permanent Early Voting List (PEVL). A hugely popular provision in Arizona, the PEVL allows eligible voters to sign up to receive a mail ballot permanently. As of Tuesday, 2,047,365 voters are on the list.

OH, how could I forget our lovely Hummingbirds..I have two feeders..

for heavens sake, OH, and Quail..sometimes when I count 7 babies scooting across the fairway..and then a couple weeks later I only count 2 or 3 babies..but every year..a new hatching..

I do have a woodpecker, red head, mottled white and gray feathers, he likes to guard the Humming Bird feeders..chasing away smaller birds, not sure what they are..but, boy is he noisy..I bet that woodpecker is the same one that likes to wake us up early in morning rat-a-tat on our satelite dish..of course it is on the roof over the bedroom..OH, and then the beautiful black Mockingbirds..noisy noisy noisy..

Ya' know what, I am so grateful for these lovely discussions..sure is a nice feeling - almost like that movie that starts out black and white, then morphs to color..not so naive to think we are out of the woods, and we don't have major societal problems to solve..but we have decent people who want to help solve those problems..

Wish you well..

Well, I Declare, Makes a Difference when Public Watching..

Arizona State Senator Gowan has decided to "pull" bill to change AZ constitution, affording AZ Legislators to override voters choice for President...


He’s relying on a provision of the U.S. Constitution that gives state legislatures the authority to decide the manner in which presidential electors are chosen. In fact, the Arizona Legislature decided that manner in 1956 when they passed a law declaring that the winner of the popular vote would get Arizona’s electors.

As for Gowan’s bill, it’s dead for now, but remember that no bad idea is really dead and gone until our leaders turn out the lights at the Capitol and call it a year.

I actually hope it'll come back to life. It seems to me entirely appropriate that we know where our leaders stand when it comes to respecting the will of the little people.

Texas energy crisis and AZ gas customers

I checked to see if this story had posted at DU..this awful time in Texas does have far reaching consequences. I am so sorry for the Texans suffering..

Natural gas users in the city are asked to help conserve supply by turning off indoor and outdoor fireplaces and fire pits as well as pool and spa heaters; reduce the time taken for showers; turn down the temperature thermostat, minizine the use of gas-fueled outdoor lighting and shorten the number of time doors are opened and closed




Mesa couldn't estimate how much the price spikes would affect customers but said that because its suppliers in Texas couldn't meet their contracts this week, the city was forced to buy from the spot market at prices "7,000%" of the normal rate.

I am looking forward to this 2nd impeachment trial of the pos because..

All the evidence will be aired, from cell phone info, video material, and witness testimony if there are any..I would like to see Gosar, Biggs, Hawley, Boebert, Greene, subpoenas. Others as evidence is gathered.

The timing of the trial should allow the managers enough time to paint a vivid picture of exactly what happened..a roadmap to sedition, if you will..the trial of the century...

Now let the bastards turn from the evidence, and vote against conviction ..on record..ain't gonna be pretty...
