Cave Creek politics

Like clockwork Mayor Vincent Francia mailed his monthly propaganda missive to the voters of Cave Creek. Francia is the master of the glass is always full, irrespective of the clear writing here and on the rest of our editorial page. Because of the acclamation of the rest of the slate, he is allowing slate leader, Vice Mayor Adam Trenk, to run the town and he is careful to support their non performance. After the last council meeting it seemed he had once again swung to the mayor of old by stating he couldn't support the court settlement before him. The settlement after all benefited only Gerald Freeman versus all the citizens who long ago voted the trail system into our general plan.

Obama's income equality push is a dangerous path

You can't turn on a talking head program these days without someone decrying income inequality.  The talking points are everywhere, even reaching the Sundance Film Festival where some of the nation's one percenters decried the disparity.

ObamaCare creates unconstitutional army


TPATH What if I told you that the Health-care legislation grants Obama the authority to create his own personal Army Corps in violation of the U.S. Constitution? On July 2, 2008 Obama gave a speech that has been stricken from most internet and news services. He said: “We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set.” He went on to say: “We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well funded.”
