    It pleases me greatly that Lagunitas is a sponsor.

    Interesting! Thanks for noting one of the places where you get your money from.

    According to this, Jason LeVecke is the founder of Golden Door Foundation. And, according to this:

    Jason LeVecke told Capitol Media Services on Thursday he is helping to finance Mesa Deserves Better because he believes voters in west Mesa are not familiar with Russell Pearce, the man they first elected to the House in 2000 and three times since. Pearce, legally barred from serving more than eight consecutive years or four terms in the House, is running for the state Senate... And LeVecke, owner of the Valley's Carl's Jr. and Pizza Patron franchises and a major Republican donor in previous years, was unapologetic about the content of a controversial flier mailed to Republican voters citing claims purportedly made by Pearce's wife about violent behavior when she filed for divorce 28 years ago. LuAnne Pearce now says those assertions were untrue and the petition was withdrawn shortly after it was filed.

    His group and other groups were mentioned here.

    Gosh, I have no idea why someone like LeVecke would oppose a state legislator who tries to reduce illegal activity.

    The Golden Door Foundation was established in 2007 to advocate freedom and liberty for all people, not for an elite few. The foundation and its members strive to restore the basic principles upon which the United States is based upon by remaining dedicated to the ideas of equality and opportunity.



    Wow. And I thought Reason needed an editor.

    Dan Lips! I know Dan, he's pretty cool. I also have some great photos of Dan that he would pay hard cash to see incinerated. :-)

    LuAnne Pearce now says those assertions were untrue and the petition was withdrawn shortly after it was filed.

    That may well be true. Standard divorce attorney boilerplate to smear the other party.

    I've also seen divorce petitions where the attorney automatically inserts language indicating that the father has been molesting the children. It is a standard tactic and is used to gain full custody for the mother. It doesn't always work and in one case I know of it was done without the mother's knowledge or consent. She later fired the attorney and demanded he re-file the petition without the offending language.

    I don't mean I've heard about it. I mean I have read the documents themselves.

    Laguintas is a sponsor? Sweet! I know their higher-gravity offerings get a lot of play, but it doesn't get much better than their Czech Pils.

    Just what sort of food is offered? I have a narrow dietary tolerance and feel that all guests' needs should be taken into acount.

    So, the Kochtopus controls Carl's Jr.? Who knew?

    Please come back when you can afford to make a purchase. Your kids are starving. Carl's Jr. believes that no child should go hungry. You are an unfit mother.



    Wasn't it obvious?

    Get new material Xeones, you unoriginal tool.

    That's funny, coming from a sockpuppet of guy who has been belching about teh BrownMenace - and precious little else - for years now.

  • Xeones||

    There is nothing new under the sun, friend.

  • Warty||

    Yo, fuck original material.

  • Xeones||

    Yo, fuck original material.

  • Warty||

    Is 2/3 ellipsis guy Lonewacko?

  • Xeones||

    There are rumors to that effect, yes.

  • Warty||

    Well, in that case: shut the fuck up, Lonewacko.

  • TofuSushi||

    But what about the snacks? Are they certified organic?

  • creech||

    When cosmo police shows up with his SWAT, feel free to beat the sh*t out of him.

    Nick Gillepsie is cuter than a duck wearing a hat.

    So, the Kochtopus controls Carl's Jr.? Who knew?

    Maybe that would explain the Carl's Jr./Green Burrito (and Hardee's/Red Burrito) co-branding.

    Rob Kampia should not be on any TV show about marijuana law reform. He has done more to dismantle the grass roots marijuana movement than the government could ever hope to! What a LOSER!
