Ten Years Of Punditry And Mayhem

August 17, 2016 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Ten Years Of Punditry And Mayhem | Filed in: Arizona, blogging, Jon, Kevin, politcs, Politics, steve, Todd.

Jon, Todd, Steve and myself started Exurban League ten years ago today. What a long, strange trip it’s been. I live in Florida now, and this blog is pretty much shut down. Todd and Steve don’t blog (never really did, to be honest), I’m writing over on my gun blog and a bunch of other • Read More »

Local Boy Makes It To The Big Time

Four guys were hanging around a coffee shop on a Saturday morning in 2006, solving all the world’s problems in just a few hours. We’d known each other from college, and all of us shared a passion for technology, Christ, our families, and our country. Oh, and Salma Hayek. Her too. We decided to start • Read More »

The Suicide Bombers of the Free Speech Movement

Another “Mohammed Cartoon Festival” is in the works, this time in Phoenix, Arizona. Unlike the last one, which was held on the property belonging to a Texas educational institute and therefore “gun-free,” (funny how the jihadists didn’t get that message…), the organizers of this festival are encouraging participants to come armed. Jon Ritzheimer is the organizer of Friday’s • Read More »

First in Arizona, then in the rest of the nation.

Michael Barone talks about what today’s elections will mean for the Democrats.  President Obama’s ideology — expanded government, Obamacare — has been less widely acceptable and his reputation for competence is currently in tatters. He was able to eke out re-election with a reduced percentage by good organization. But he leaves his party in trouble. • Read More »

On SB1062

An ASU law prof weighs in on Arizona’s “controversial” anti-gay/pro-religious freedom bill and finds it to be a big, fat nothing-burger.  “…in Phoenix, Tucson and Flagstaff, which do extend rights based on sexual orientation, only the government can take action against an offending firm, with companies already able to claim a shield against government action • Read More »

The Beatles first performance on the Ed Sullivan Show.Neil Armstrong walking on the moon. The invention of sliced bread.  What do all of these have in common? They all PALE  to the the Arizona Bloggers (Conservative) meetup on the 22nd, location TDB. If you’ve gone to one, you know they’re always a good time of fun and • Read More »

Ten new gun bills in the Arizona Legislature

January 24, 2014 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Ten new gun bills in the Arizona Legislature | Filed in: Arizona, Crime, Culture, Democrats, Guns, Kevin, Law, politcs, Politics.

There’s a lot of variety in these new bills: Some of them appear to advance gun rights in Arizona, some don’t really affect the status quo in any meaningful way, and some try to repeal the gains that gun rights have made in the past few years. Senate Bill 1063: Allows people to carry guns in • Read More »

Neutral No More.

I sat on the sidelines during the 2008 Arizona Republican Senate primary because I didn’t see J.D. Hayworth as an upgrade from McCain. Yes, Hawyworth spouted all the right immigration buzzwords, but lordamighty, his voting record in the House was anything but a model of fiscal conservatism.  This primary, though, things are different. McCain has • Read More »

The news is brought to you by the Democratic National Committee

If you were unfortunate enough to watch KPNX’s 6:00 news show yesterday, you would have been treated to one of the most blatantly pro-Democrat “stories” of the year running as their lead story. Apparently, according to CNN, 2013 won’t be known as the year that the IRS was used as a weapon of political chicanery • Read More »

You stay classy, Seattle

Remember, we’re the hate-filled mysgonists racist homphobes who pre-judge people by where they live. Liberal Democrats never, ever do that.  What, never? Well, hardly ever.  A Washington state lawmaker said Sunday he was just engaging in some sports trash talk when he called the state of Arizona a “racist wasteland.” Democratic Rep. Joe Fitzgibbon made • Read More »

But don’t worry, Kyrsten Sinema, I’m sure your seat in the House is safe.

As Colorado goes, so goes the nation? Michael Barone seems to think so. Democrats have had only narrow majorities in the Colorado legislature. Nevertheless, they went ahead with a liberal agenda, passing civil unions for same-sex couples, in-state college tuition for children of illegal immigrants and renewable energy requirements. Like Obama Democrats in Congress, they • Read More »

Want to solve the problem of illegal immigration? Help Latin America solve it’s problems, and the problem will solve itself.  I hope that one day, everyone south of me will be able to enjoy the blessings of life, liberty and the pursuit of Sofia Vergara.  Hey, you define “happiness” your way, and I’ll define it • Read More »

They told Glenn Reynolds that if he voted for Romney, moral prudes and churches would influence elections, and they were RIGHT!

Who needs laws when there’s a self-righteous moral cause to support? The Center for Public Integrity took at peek at donations flowing into the Gabby Giffords and Mark Kelly gun control PAC, and they found several thousand dollars in donations from at least two private foundations and a church that cannot legally donate to political • Read More »

I hear a lot of grumblings these days from right-wing pundits about the militarization of the police, decrying the apparent need to roll out in full battle-rattle for every traffic citation.  Those same people turn around and applaud Sheriff Joe giving AR-15’s to his officers and mandating they have them with them on and off-duty.  • Read More »

Fred Duval pasos en la mierda

Hispanic outreach. You’re doing it wrong. A Democratic candidate for Arizona governor released a photograph of himself with his face digitally darkened so that he would look more Hispanic. The candidate, Phoenix businessman Fred DuVal said he wanted show Republicans he is a “good sport,” reports the Arizona Daily Independent. DuVal’s stunt was a response • Read More »

No, this is not a post about SB1070. Greg Patterson (who is darn close to the sharpest knife in the drawer when it comes to local politics), points out the obvious: Where is the Democratic bench for 2014? Who is to blame for the decline and fall of the Democrats in Arizona?  Janet Napolitano, that’s • Read More »

50 Mayors have left Bloomberg’s anti-gun group this year

July 23, 2013 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on 50 Mayors have left Bloomberg’s anti-gun group this year | Filed in: Arizona, Crime, Guns, Kevin, politcs, Politics.

When will Arizona’s mayors follow after their colleagues in other states? New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s gun control group Mayors Against Illegal Guns is finding it hard to keep its membership up, thanks to dozens of resignations and lost elections over the last few months. Worse for Bloomberg, who has become one of the faces • Read More »

Tucson police officer fired and arrested on aggravated assault charges for pointing gun at gas station clerk while off-duty and intoxicated.  Well, at least his finger’s off the trigger while threatening that poor guy with his government-supplied gat. I, for one, am, shocked, SHOCKED at this sort of behaviour from a law enforcement officer in • Read More »

It’s not something they like to brag about, but there several Arizona Mayors who belong to Mik “Call Me Ahab” Bloomberg’s Mayors Against Illegal Guns (MAI. With dozens of mayors listed on their website and the backing of Michael Bloomberg’s billions, you’d think that Arizona politicians would be GLAD to support such an august organization. • Read More »

  What do you get when you mix 14,000 pounds of high explosives, 20,000 gallons of gasoline and a case of road flares? I don’t know, but I know the results of that mixture won’t be HALF as exciting as what happens when Jim Sharpe, James Allen and myself get together over at KFYI.  More • Read More »
