cropped-TSON.jpg

via ACLU. Senators Demand the Military Lock Up of American Citizens in a “Battlefield” They Define as Being Right Outside Your Window While nearly all Americans head to family and friends to celebrate Thanksgiving, the Senate is gearing up for a vote on Monday or Tuesday that goes to the very heart of who we are as Americans. The Senate will be voting on a bill that will direct American military resources not at an enemy shooting at our military in a war zone, but at American citizens and other civilians far from any battlefield — even people in the […]

Tom Horne repeats the same old LIES on Buckmaster Show today

cropped-TSON.jpg

Some people never evolve. Arizona Attorney General Tom Horne is one of them. Horne was the first guest on the Buckmaster Show today and the first question was about the Ethnic Studies issue in Tucson. Horne was still spewing the same pendejadas, like a broken record, since last year. Tom Horne 11-29-11 One of his favorite false statements is that these classes separate students by race, but nothing could be further from the truth! These classes are not required and the student makes a choice to enroll in the class, and indeed you can find a diversity of students in […]

FAIL: Herman Cain’s presidential ambitions collapse after going on the “Blitz” show

cropped-TSON.jpg

Herman Cain went on the “Blitz” show yesterday on CNN and responded to allegations that he had a 13-year affair with Ginger White. He said that he knows about as much about a 13-year affair as he does about Libya, who the ruler of Uzbeckybeckybeckstanstan is, and by saying NO in German three times, Nein-Nein-Nein! So “Blitz” asked him a follow-up question. Perhaps the 13-year part of it is wrong, so he asked if he ever had sex with the White woman. Cain paused, then said, “well let’s see what she is saying first.” This affair was exposed by a […]

Will Tom Horne the Grinch try to steal xMAS in Tucson this December?

cropped-TSON.jpg

You may remember Tom Horne as the guy who tried to ban teachers with accents and this was eventually slapped down by the feds. Or perhaps you remember him as the guy who tried to go against the Voting Rights Act that was created to protect minorities, and once again he was slapped down by the feds. It seems the Attorney General likes to pick on minorities and then get punished in return. Some old men are kinky like that. So it is only fitting that Tom Horne’s Christmas Wish will come true this year. Cue “Dreaming of a White […]

Oops! Sheriff Arpaio’s endorsement of Rick Perry comes with baggage

cropped-TSON.jpg

Oops! Perry doesn’t know what he stepped in Arpaio endorsement only comes with baggage Rick Perry doesn’t know what he has gotten himself into. His faltering and erratic presidential campaign has made a Texas-sized blunder by trotting out Joe Arpaio in New Hampshire this week, where the Maricopa County Sheriff will endorse Perry. The Texas governor has somehow been hoodwinked by Arpaio into believing the sheriff’s endorsement comes with anything but baggage. So for the benefit of Perry’s campaign — which seems to need the help — we’ve put together a few of Joe’s greatest hits below, and this is […]
