    southbeach1500 saidIt takes a few years to recover from Democrat Governor Napolitano's mismanaging of the state government. Give it another year or two.

    Oh.... and close the border.




    NOPE.
    Things have gotten worse here in AZ since Brewer has been running things, and people are getting angry.

    And it's just hilarious how you give Brewer "a few years" before she's responsible for the state of the AZ economy, but Obama was responsible for the Bush recession two MONTHS into his Presidency.

    Frankly, I hope that Arizona ceases to exist. Maybe we can give it back to Mexico. That would be the best reward for all the bigots & racists there.

    My hope is that Gabby Giffords fully recovers and runs for Senator or Governor - wins - and is instrumental to changing AZ from red to blue.

    Hardly cloistered, nor a ghetto. Jealous, perhaps? If you were really gay. And better than where you live? Which is where, exactly?

    FYI - that line of right-wing BS rewriting of history has failed.

    SB !!!! I KNOW YOU !!!! YOUR JUST BAITING !!!! bet you don't really believe this do you ? You know as well as I do that Bush's actions policies were primarily responsible for our mess and that Dems were basically powerless to stop those two budget breaking wars !!!

    Of course shared deregulation between Clinton and Bush didn't help either, as with Corps taking jobs overseas with subsidies to do it, that too happened with the dems and repubs blessing, but you cannot blame the Dems because they were in power in congress..

    God almighty! You have to tune in to Beck on FOX to hear such lunacy.

    Congress wasn't controlled by the Democrats in 2006! They had a minimal majority in 2007, which doesn't "control" anything when Republicans refuse to be bipartisan. Plus you have a Republican President (Bush) who said he'd veto anything that Democrats tried to pass. You really are tripping!

    As someone said in another thread, you become more irrational with every post.

    The Democrats didn't take control of the Congress until 2007.

    Racists and bigots? You sure love to call people names Mr Deco.


    But since you lived a lie most of your life--I know you don't really mean what you say about Arizona---

    As always --you are the best--


    Love your new photo-

    I didn't live a lie -- I lived a self-deception. If I had known I was gay sooner, I would have come out as quickly as I finally did, in a single day.

    I tell my story here as a cautionary tale for others, who may be in a similar circumstance. You have no business knocking me for my honesty, for which I'm kinda proud.

    Nothing says I have to reveal this, and expose myself to criticism. I do it for a purpose, to help other gays, who may be in my shoes themselves. When you stop thinking in terms of yourself, you may begin to understand my motives.

    You have no right to whine about ArtDeco calling people names when you call him a liar in the very same post.
    Not if you don't want to look extremely hypocritical.

    And, FYI - sarcasm is a real turn-off.
    People just hate that shit.

    If you wish to define it so. I said it was a self-deception, that I did not realize myself. I knowingly lied to no one. And were you out to everyone in your community from the moment you first knew your were gay?

    I did. My problem was that self-realization was too long delayed.

    So now I am out to everyone. And were you always out to everyone? From the time you were -- a teenager perhaps. To your family, your community, your employers, everyone? If not, then where is the lie?

    Spare me, here we have a closeted gay man who lived a lie almost the first 50 years of his life and then thinks he's God's gift to homosexuals and now tries to throw his weight around like he knows everything about being gay? I've been gay my entire life--he shows no respect to those of us who don't fit his mold of what a gay person should be----

    I didn't hide my gayness with a girlfriend nor have I been married to cover up my gayness--- He lived a lie---has nothing to do with the act of telling a lie--- HE LIVED A LIE! And now he runs around with a gay flag out his ass and he know IT ALL!---

    As a pure gay male---I have no respect for this disrespectful person

    Not only that - it was really less than one year.
    The Dems didn't take control until Jan. 2007, and the 2007-2009 Bush recession began in December 2007.
    That's a mere TEN MONTHS later.
