Russell Pearce Linked To Japan Disaster By Patrons of Local Sports Bar

Categories: Only in Arizona
We settled in yesterday for an annual ritual--watching the NCAA March Madness Selection Show at a Scottsdale bar, Zipps Sports Grill up on East Greenway Parkway.

It's always a hoot to see guys armed with schooners of brewskies trying to keep up with the match-ups as they flash on the big TV screens--the first forays into what will be the ritualistic filling out of brackets on the Net and at work.

Come to think of it, we are one of those guys.



Anyway, CBS had a news update just before the start of the CBS selection show which focused on the frightening ongoing events in Japan.

Everyone in the bar was riveted. The following dialogue (picture this to be very loud) ensued:

Guy at far end of bar: "I just came from LA, and everyone there is freaked out that it's gonna happen there, too."

His friend: "Well, at least we don't have to worry about those kinds of natural disasters here in Arizona, right?"

Arizona Senate President Russell Pearce: A `Natural Disaster.'


Fellow from a nearby table, without missing a beat: "We got our own kind of natural disaster to deal with. It's called the Arizona Legislature."

Original guy: "Yeah, [Senate President] Russell Pearce and that asshole [Scott Bundgaard] who beat up his girlfriend, right?"

Table talker: "Yup. Natural disasters."

Collective laughter.

Maybe there is a smidgen of hope left.

Alright, all of you losers get back to work, there are millions of illegals out there who are depending on a portion of your paycheck so they can feed their boat weight kids.

Maybe those idiots in the bar would like to hand over their paycheck to any one of the hundreds of illegals that sneak across AZ's border every week. Hell, the guys in the kitcen of zipps are probably all illegal, just like chipoltle and pei wei. I don't see this liberal rag running any articles regarding those topics. No doubt all of those employees were using stolen identities. I hope illegals steal the identities of the losers who work for this publication. Then hopefully the IRS comes knocking on your door and puts you in jail even though you are not guilty of tax fraud.

In a way it's true - Pearce and Co. are trying to take down the Arizona Corporation Commission, about the ONLY regulator of the Palo Verde Nuclear Plant we have in Arizona government (and not really much of one at that).

WIth so many violations of the Federal safety regs that APS has allowed to go on at Palo Verde, they would love to have the ACC disbanded or weakened enough to allow them to destroy they little nuke plants so they wouldn't have to pay to decommission them in the next few years.

Just watch - when the APS (subsidiary of Pinnacle West Capital Corporation) Nuke Plant get's near it's life end (40 years - not the usual 60 because of poor construction practices by Bechtel - the concrete in the containment is becoming prematurely friable).

While Palo Verde supplies electricity at an operating cost (including fuel and maintenance) of 1.33 U.S. cents per kilowatt-hour, this does not include the cost of decommissioning the plant in the future. The taxpayer will get stuck with that bill or the bill for cleaning up a ruined reactor site.

Unfortunately, the only connection to Japan is that Russell Pearce will destroy Arizona,only a question of how long it takes. The other question is, are the citizens of thisstate going to let him do it.

I don't understand what is so difficult about ANY person from another country waiting their turn in line to come to America legally. If the cowards who sneak throught he desert are doing nothing wrong then why do they run when they see border patrol? Many of border patrol are mexican so why run from another mexican? SB1070 is NOT a racist law. Despite what liberal spin cyclce rags like this disgusting publication has fed its viewers police cannot simply pull a person over because of their skin color. That is illegal, a crime, against he law. Police CAN pull a person over if they have resonable suspicion. If you are weaving, have a cracked windshield and your car looks liek a dangerous hooptie, you have 8 people in a car designed to hold 5 max, if you have a headlight out, etc are all reasons a police officer can pull you over. I commend senator Pearce he is only trying to help TAXPAYERS, ie: US CITIZENS. If you are of mexican descent and are a US CITIZEN who legally pays taxes because you have a SS number then you should be thankful that people like senator Pearce are crafting bills to target illegal aliens as illegal aliens are stealing from you if you are a white person or a brown person. Grow a damn brain and use it. Stop letting the mainstream media think for you.

Of course the citizens are going to let him do it. They're too damn dumb to do otherwise. Az has one of the worst education systems for a reason. The only way the regressive right can stay in power is to keep the electorate stupid.

This has to be one of the funniest articles I have ever read in my 7 years of reading this paper.

Senate President Pearce is der Fuhrer of Arizona, y'know, similar to how Adolf was der Fuhrer of Germany....

I wonder where Pearce's SS uniform is. You know, the one with the Nazi armband.....

He redid the SS uniform. It now consists of an American Flag stretched almost to the breaking point around his pot belly. I would sooner see some idiot burning our flag as a token of free speech than Pearce desecrating it with armpit stains while hypocritically claiming to support the constitution and simultaneously abusing it.

Trying to get my head around the term "Natural Disaster." Seems more like suicide to me. Maybe "Voter Assisted Suicide."
