America´s Whiniest Ex-Sheriff
Announces Senate Run

Reason, by C.J. Ciaramella

Original Article

Posted By:zoidberg, 1/9/2018 2:13:43 PM

A bit more than a year after voters booted him out of office, former Maricopa County sheriff Joe Arpaio has announced he´s running for the U.S. Senate. The 85-year-old Arizonan—an unrepentant birther, nativist, and whiny baby—told the Washington Examiner that he will run on a platform of supporting the agenda of President Donald Trump, who pardoned Arpaio last year after a federal judge held the ex-sheriff in criminal contempt. "I have a lot to offer. I´m a big supporter of President Trump," Arpaio told the paper. "I´m going to have to work hard; you don´t take anything for granted.

Wow. I guess he misses the spotlight. The main effect he´ll have is to take votes away from Ward and hand the race to McSally. Ward needs a big turnout in Maricopa County and that´s Arpaio´s strength. McSally´s congressional district is in Southern Arizona including the Tucson area. She´ll clean up there.

Ciaramella, I suspect, has never been persecuted by the former Obama adm.
Besides, media types are the most whiny people on earth.

Reason lost its, er, reason during the Obama administration and with so many states legalizing marijuana its pet project of intellectualizing pot smoking was greatly diminished, Sessions´ announcement notwithstanding.

I´m frankly astounded at the stoooopidity over this announcement (a little here, lots elsewhere). People seem to be constantly jumping up and down hollering that we need to get off our butts and get involved in politics. Then when a good man like Arpaio decides to do just that, these same people immediately whine, "Oh, no! He´s going to ruin everything!"

Whatever!

I hope Sheriff Joe doesn´t run, he´s too old and he will take votes away from a more viable conservative candidate, however, a law enforcement official´s job is to protect law abiding citizens from harm, and crime statistics show that as sheriff, Joe Arpaio kept his district more than twice as safe as a neighboring district overseen by a liberal sheriff, even though the areas had almost identical demographics and problems. Sheriff Joe lost his job thanks to being targeted by a lavishly Soros funded campaign. The people of Maricopa County should have known better.

Yay for the optimism it takes to apply for a 6-year job when you´re 85, but this isn´t a gig as Wal-Mart greeter.

Regardless of what a stalwart conservative Sheriff Joe may be - and I like him - he´s too damned old to be a senator. Says me.

Arpaio dodged a bullet with Trump. He should quietly retire now. He´s too old for the job and too much of a loose cannon.

Kind of like Roy Moore. Makes you wonder which GOPer or Dem is advising him.

AZ should be another safe seat. The dems don´t care and they´ll cross the aisle to vote for Arpaio in the primary. Meanwhile, the GOP field will be yuge and split the sane vote. Dems win. Maybe another two seats since McCain will be gone too.

Joe needs to stand down.

Joe is taking orders from Mitch. McConman does not want Kelli Ward because she is a conservative. Mitch is on another mission of complete personal destruction of her. Joe is another useful tool like Romney.

6 Studies That Say Otherwise

Attorney General Jeff Sessions thinks marijuana may be a gateway to prescription opioid and heroin addiction. In fact, a number of academic studies show lower rates of opioid abuse and overdoses in states that have legalized medical marijuana. Speaking at a Heritage Foundation event last night in honor of the late Ronald Reagan´s birthday, Sessions lamented the "permissive rhetoric" and media coverage surrounding marijuana and other drugs. "We don´t think illegal drug use is ´recreation.´ Lax enforcement, permissive rhetoric and the media have undermined the essential need to say no to drug use. Don´t start," Sessions said.

San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón announced today that his office will proactively expunge and seal the records of misdemeanor marijuana offenders, the San Francisco Chroniclereports. The office will also resentence offenders who received a felony pot conviction. Proposition 64, the 2016 referendum item that legalized recreational marijuana in California, allows pot offenders to petition for resentencing if their crime would have received a different penalty, or no penalty at all, under the new law. Rather than wait for petitions, Gascón´s office is searching for eligible cases. "The district attorney said his office will dismiss and seal more than 3,000

Experts claim using offensive language shows someone has a larger vocabulary and could be linked with a higher IQ. There are also said to be many health benefits to using a naughty word or two. It´s believed swearing increases circulation and releases endorphins - making you feel happier. While it also allows you to communicate exactly how you feel about something as you feel more able to be honest. By swearing, a person can express fury, loathing or pain, without the threat of the argument turning physical. It was also suggested that those who swore more often were less likely

His course will be offered through the W&M Washington Center to students of the public college based in Williamsburg, Va. Comey will teach the course in fall 2018, spring 2019 and summer 2019 with executive assistant professor Drew Stelljes.

Does the California Model
Really Work?

The alleged success of the California model is one of the more intense controversies in the nerdier corners of public-policy debate. For many progressives, California’s metastasizing liberalism proves you can have Scandinavian-style social policies and tax rates and still have robust economic growth. For conservatives, California is like a bumblebee. On paper, the damn thing shouldn’t be able to fly — and yet it does. Thus the cottage industry on the right of prophesizing California’s inevitable demise. What’s always bothered me about the whole argument is how it leaves out important factors. For me, the biggest one was always geography

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) said Wednesday that while he supports additional barriers at the U.S.-Mexico border, he believes some of the estimated costs for President Trump’s border wall are too high to justify. "I remain a fiscal conservative, even on the wall, so I’m not excited about spending $20, $30, $40 billion on a wall. I’m still a believer that we don’t have money to spend. We’re $700 billion in the hole,” Paul said on CNN.  “And while I will vote for money for barriers, I’m not voting for $40 billion for barriers,” Paul added.  A report last week detailed Trump’s

Nineteen-year-old Nikolas Cruz -- who mowed down Parkland, Florida, high school students and teachers, killing 17 and wounding many others -- had been thrown out of the same school for threatening his classmates. He had been bragging to them about having a personal armory and implying he would use it, justifiably frightening them. Subsequently he posted a photo of that armory, including assault weaponry, on Instagram as well as a photo of a target riddled with bullet holes with the recommendation to try it as "group therapy."

Revelations that the FBI had been warned about Florida high school shooter Nikolaus Cruz fit an all-too-familiar pattern, in which apparent law enforcement errors have preceded mass murders. The FBI was warned about Cruz after he posted on YouTube saying he was going to become a “professional school shooter.” The agency said they couldn’t identify the user who made the threat, despite Cruz posting under his own name. Five months later, Cruz pulled the fire alarm at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and began shooting his former classmates with his AR-15. Other mass shooters and terrorists were similarly on the FBI’s radar
