A heated battle is taking place in Arizona between the fledgling solar industry and APS, the state’s largest energy company, which enjoys a state-granted near-monopoly over energy. In sunny Arizona, it is peculiar that solar energy is being portrayed as the bad guy.

Who would have guessed that liberal Democrat Barack Obama would end up being one of the biggest warmongering presidents in history.
Many refuse to get involved in politics because they believe their efforts are so insignificant it is not worth the time. These cynics believe the system is so vast, and corruption so ingrained, that it is futile.
The most common phrase teenagers say nowadays is “I’m awesome.” Instead of parents - as well as teachers and programming on television - giving children praise when they’ve earned it, today’s society tells kids they’re smart and wonderful all the time.
Phoenix City Councilman Sal DiCiccio, one of the most aggressively pro-freedom city councilmen, is under siege from the unions in one of the most corrupt local elections in the country.
