Arizona’s revenue from online purchase tax – Another Ducey-imposed tax that was never brought to the voters for approval.

Trump is playing the dictator, taking out the Iranian general without going through channels. He said he would bring troops home; instead he sends more. I think he’s starting a war in hopes of getting re-elected. Draft his sons!

Impeachment Diversion? – As we can see now Don the Con and his gang of gangsters just handed Iran its Pearl Harbor/9-11 that has united the entire Muslim world against us. For the record any attack on Americans that happens world-wide is now Mr. Trump’s fault.

Truck Drives through Johnson Avenue Post Office – Maybe the driver was under 60 years old but was distracted by texting on his or her cell phone. When will the local police start ticketing these people?

Truck drives through Johnson Avenue Post Office – Another over-60 elderly “confused” driver? No, more likely it was a 20-something trying to text and park at the same time.

Details emerge in failed Mohave County sex trafficking case – Am I the only one who finds it more than disconcerting that according to the article: “Our understanding of (Homeland Security) policy is that their investigators are allowed to participate in sex acts while working undercover.”

MCC emerging leader – Great to see Erin Roper sticking with her passion and making a difference in our beloved rural Arizona. Freedom-loving societies will always need libraries.

Male, female or other? Proposed law would provide a third sex option on licenses – Really! Arizona is going to go all California on us? Makes me sick.

Scammers – I lost $115 to scammers and want to make sure no one else is abused in this manner. They said to solve my Yahoo computer issues it was necessary for me to purchase an Xbox card. I bought one for $15 and they said it had to be $100. Then they requested three more cards since I was hacked in four locations. That was when the bells went off.

Uranium - OK, let’s mine uranium so that a few get richer and many more will get cancer. Make America Great Again and give Mojave County residents cancer. Screw the locals for the prosperity of a far--away few. Cancer is fake news, right?

Thanks to Anastasia at the Mohave County Kingman library for volunteering to make a copy of a New Year’s Happenings activity calendar when you I inquired about one. You are a very enthusiastic and hard-working employee and the library is lucky to have you.

On Jan. 6 I drove out to the recycling center around 1:30 p.m. There were a line of cars. The recycling containers were being emptied by the city. I left without recycling. Please empty recycling bins after consumer hours so gas and time aren’t wasted.

If you’re going to rant and rave here at least sign on with your real name.

Someone needs to care about stopping the neighborhood gang violence occurring in the Butler area.

I would like to apologize to the former North Dakota residents for the exchange of words we had after I was confronted for parking in a yellow-striped area that was formally used for shopping cart racks. This took place in the Walmart parking lot.
