    But other than that it was mostly peaceful.

    I see the government sanctioned cartel that “manages” maple syrup has had to dip into it’s strategic reserve, so there may be less to chug.

    Haven't you learned the rules yet? To republicans violence only counts if democrats engage in it. Just in the past week or so we've seen one republican congressman tweet out a violent video fantasy featuring the murders or another congressperson and the president, and a different congressperson stating that all Muslims, including Muslim congresspeople, are terrorists without rebuke from any other republican politicians. In other words, it was just a regular week here in the US.

    I'll never quite understand Arizona. It runs very Conservative and then out of nowhere can be Liberal, and then it can be very bizarre at the drop of a hat. Not only is Arizona that state of Paul Gozar and his violent fantasies against AOC leading to his censure BUT that's not all folks.

    It's also the state of two impeached Governors: Evan Mecham and Fife Symington. Matter of fact, Evan Mecham's profound disrespect for the people of Arizona led to my budding activism and protesting so I thank the crook for that - was he so stupid that he believed embezzling state money and diverting said money to his Glendale, AZ Pontiac dealership wouldn't be caught?

    I guess what I'm trying to say here is that Arizona is no stranger to bizarre politicians and their inevitably bizarre acts in office. Now we've got Gozar as an embarassment and Kirsten Sinema flexing her power and creating headlines.

    Never a dull moment in Arizona! Rob

    I had no idea Arizona had governors as ‘colorful’ as most of illinois’ governors in my lifetime. Thanks for the history lesson!
