Greetings fellow dp'ers. Thank you for taking the time to read this post.
I have been considering moving to another state and have my eyes on Arizona at the moment. I have done my research. Yet I wish to ask one thing which I am struggling with. CPS. What is up with the huge spike in number of foster children? And what is behind Gov. Jan Brewers new executive order on abolishing CPS and setting up the new stand alone cabinet?
Is this a good thing? Or will it result in even higher numbers of children taken out of the home and/or violate parental rights?

Want to know where that 100 million we just cut from the Arizona education budget is actually going? 100 million additional funding for prisons. All pushed through by our Republican majority!
I'm no fan of public education, but most of these cuts are to better options like charter schools. Charter schools, btw are beating our typical public schools here in Prescott hands down. The traditional schools are being shutdown while charter schools are thriving.
We already have the 6th highest incarceration rate in the nation.
Me, military member, told by liberal antiwar mother she won't speak to me: I was informally discussing "conscientious objection"Submitted by Tman2000 on Mon, 02/16/2015 - 00:15
A serious what. the. fuck.
I joined the military a few years ago, and owe a few more years. Feel really bad about it now. I don't do a job that's all that bad, but definitely have directly helped as a crucial link in a chain that gets bullets to "bad guys", once or twice. I can't say my conscience is killing me. I can do this for my few last years, take the money, get on with life.

t was October 2012. Roei Elkabetz, a brigadier general for the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), was explaining his country’s border policing strategies. In his PowerPoint presentation, a photo of the enclosure wall that isolates the Gaza Strip from Israel clicked onscreen. “We have learned lots from Gaza,” he told the audience. “It’s a great laboratory.”
Enlightening discourse on debt, being surety for someone else, making deals based on advantage rather than integrity. Very good!
As you may recall, Last year the Arizona Republican Party censured John McCain.
Since then, McCain reportedly raised and spent approximately $300,000 to campaign against and oust Precinct Committeemen in Arizona who oppose him. Additionally, he has recruited a large number of PC's from the Vietnamese community in Arizona -- a community that is supportive of him.
AP) — A 24-year-old police officer and a suspect died after a shootout Saturday afternoon.
Officer Tyler J. Stewart, 24, died at Flagstaff Medical Center after he was shot by a man who was a suspect in a domestic-violence case, police said. Stewart is the second Flagstaff police officer ever to be killed in the line of duty. On June 21, 2000, Officer Jeff Moritz, 30, was killed after he pulled over a teenager as the teen drove around his neighborhood in a truck playing loud rap music.
One day we will wake up and become aware of the ways we have been manipulated and controlled. We have been purposefully deceived through the misuse of language. Liberal as defined by Google:
open to new behavior or opinions and willing to discard traditional values.
"they have more liberal views toward marriage and divorce than some people"
favorable to or respectful of individual rights and freedoms.
"liberal citizenship laws"
synonyms: tolerant, unprejudiced, unbigoted, broad-minded, open-minded, enlightened; More
permissive, free, free and easy, easygoing, libertarian, indulgent, lenient
"the values of a liberal society"
antonyms: narrow-minded, bigoted
(in a political context) favoring maximum individual liberty in political and social reform.
"a liberal democratic state"
synonyms: progressive, advanced, modern, forward-looking, forward-thinking, progressivist, enlightened, reformist, radical
I will admit this is not the entire definition on Google. This is only the first portion. It goes on and on and eventually turns back on itself. Our founding Father's called themselves liberal as well:
In a move that will surprise no one familiar with his gargantuan ego, John McCain (RINO-AZ) has revealed his plan to guarantee the election of Hillary Clinton: his campaign for the GOP nomination in 2016.
Hello and Thank You for reading this.
My very good friend,Toru, just found out his mother has stage IV pancreatic cancer.
She is 74 years old and lives in Japan.
If you have any helpful links, videos, advice, etc. it would be greatly appreciated.
They have suggested chemo, but that will be very painful.
Thank you for any suggestions.
