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.
