Rooftops threaten Luke bid for F-35s [Oct. 18th, 2008|08:11 pm]
Arizona Politics

By David Madrid - Arizona Republic via Gannett News Service
Posted : Wednesday Oct 15, 2008 11:49:24 EDT

Luke Air Force Base west of Phoenix, Ariz., is competing with a base in Idaho to land a new generation of supersonic fighter aircraft, and state officials worry that urban sprawl could ruin its chances and drain billions of dollars from the economy.

The Air Force needs a large base with plenty of airspace over unpopulated areas to train pilots to fly the new F-35 Lightning II. Luke, on the western fringes of the Valley, has that and great flying weather to boot. But if new housing keeps creeping closer to the base, moving within noise boundaries, the Air Force fears future training activities could be curtailed by the residential encroachment.

That concern is particularly acute because the F-35 is louder than the aging F-16 Fighting Falcon used for training at Luke and more likely to disturb people living under flight paths.

Although West Valley cities have restricted nearby development to protect Luke, Arizona Attorney General Terry Goddard is in a legal showdown with Maricopa County to stop encroachment in unincorporated areas near the base and its training area. Unless the county is stopped, he says, new rooftops could ground Luke’s hopes for the lucrative F-35 mission and cast a cloud over the base’s future as the F-16 is phased out.

Resign-To-Run Law [Mar. 5th, 2008|07:35 pm]
Arizona Politics

[Current Location |Tucson, AZ USA]
[mood |calmcalm]

First of all, I am a conservative GOPer who lives in Tucson. I vote very regularly and follow national, state and local politics pretty closely.

I am glad to find this community so to dicuss AZ politics and political happenings.

What I want to know is that now US Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has sercured the GOP presidential nomination:

1. How soon will he have to resign his senate seat to run for the White House full-time?

2. Does the resign-to run law actually apply to him? Why or why not?

3. Are you glad that he got the nomination?

As for me, JM was not my choice for the GOP nomination, but I am glad he will soon be out of our hair and a real Republican can get his seat.

Thanks for information and comments.

Phoenix Rock City [May. 18th, 2007|03:29 pm]
Arizona Politics
Hi Phoenicians,

I am posting to invite all promoters and participants of fun events going on in Phoenix and its surrounding areas to come try out a new forum, PhoenixRockCity.com.

It's free, and all varieties of interests are welcome.

We're posting here because we have a category for political and activist groups (events, marches, protests, meetings for political and humanitarian groups, etc.)

Whatever you got, we want!

The "official" launch is Memorial Day weekend, but we're hoping to get the word out now so new visitors already find posts waiting for them.

It's free, and no one involved in the site is making money off it, it's just a labor of love for those who love Phoenix and its underground/alternative/indie/counterculture scene.

Thanks for reading (and apologies for whatever crossposting may be getting this message on your friends' page multiple times!)

Tonight at the Paper Heart: America: Freedom to Fascism [Mar. 14th, 2007|02:56 pm]
Arizona Politics


Subversive Film Series

Embedded Video: 15 Minute PromoCollapse )

America: Freedom to Fascism

Want to see how our great-grandparents were sold into slavery in the early 1900's? Want to learn the truth about income taxes and the true source of government control over the American public? Join us on Wednesday, March 14th for a screening of a very special film.

Determined to find the law that requires Americans to pay income tax, Aaron Russo (THE ROSE, TRADING PLACES) sets out on a journey. Neither left- nor right-wing, this startling examination exposes the systematic erosion of civil liberties in America. Through interviews with US Congressmen, a former IRS Commissioner, former IRS and FBI agents, tax attorneys and authors, Russo connects the dots between money creation, federal income tax, voter fraud, the national identity card (becoming law in May 2008) and the implementation of radio frequency identification (RFID) technology to track citizens. A striking case about the evolving police state in America.

Film will start @ 9:30 pm
Open discussion following films
Admission is Free!

Full coffee bar and food available from Counter Culture Cafe.
