Lawyer: My Clients Were Ignorant of the Law

The bulk of the fines three political committees in Glendale are liable for (click for original story) are related to Arizona election law statutes that require reporting of large contributions and expenditures within 24 hours. The Glendale City Clerk refers to them as "10k notices". Two of the committees are pushing referendums to negate two Glendale City Council actions taken during their August 12 meeting (click here) related to the proposed Tohono O'odham casino resort. Those committees already dropped stacks of petitions at the City Clerk's office where they sit awaiting the resolution of their lawsuit against the City (for stating the actions are not referable). The third committee is gathering signatures to recall Gary Sherwood, one of four council members that voted for the August 12 measures. This committee has declared success via the local media, yet has not turned in any petitions. All three committees received more than $10k from yet ANOTHER committee, "Neighbors … [Read More...]

PLEASE Get Your Flu Shot

Recently posted to Facebook is an article  “John Hopkins Scientist Reveals Shocking Report on Flu Vaccine”.  I want to point out that there are many news outlets that are only in the business of getting people to click on their page for the ad counters, and therefore they receive some sort of financial benefit. Before I get into the meat and potatoes of what I want to say I want this fact to be known; Influenza and it's complications account for up to 40,000 deaths annually in the United States.  That figure works out to 109.5 people every day if extrapolated out over a year. Also to be noted is that the article being cited in the webpage that was linked on Facebook, is based on a … [Read More...]

Jason Rose Sues Coyotes Honchos

Jason Rose is back and starring in an AZ Republic piece. He's not in his role as the trusted advisor to Glendale mayor Weiers helping with the anti-Coyotes project, among other things. He isn't wearing his hat as the PR representative for the fabulously nutty Amy's Baking Company. This time Jason's wearing his polo tournament savior of the Coyotes hat, at the perfect jaunty angle of course. Let Us Stipulate We can all agree that Jason Rose had absolutely nothing to do with defeating the 2013 referendum attempt. The 2013 referendum attempt failed because no petitions were ever turned in. Even if those petitions had been turned in, the paperwork for the referendum was … [Read More...]

Bill For Barrett-Jackson? Over A Million

My top ten Barrett-Jackson rides for my own personal use was full of cars you could drive instead of parking in a museum. Had I populated my non-existent ten car garage with these things, I would have had to write a check for $1,020,350. Not bad, really! $495,000 - 1955 Talbot-Lago T-26 Grand Sport GSL Coupe I guessed this would be a a $200,000 car, I was wrong.It's on the list because of the way it looks, it's the right color and everything. If you complain it's not a driver, you'd be wrong because it's run five Colorado Grand and two Copperstate 1000 rallies. $20,900 - 1963 Pontiac Star Chief 4 Door Sedan This would need some air conditioning … [Read More...]

Secret Android Speedup WORKS

I'll admit I have yet to perform any scientific calculations on the effectiveness of the following change, I'd have to test it and then revert to the prior setup on my devices to do it correctly. Seat of the pants? This is a great change. You'll need to have Android KitKat 4.4.2 on your device for this to work. I believe right now that means having a Nexus 5 phone or a Nexus 7 tablet. Oracle, Schmoracle Oracle sued Google in 2012 claiming that the basis for the Android operating system running Java, the Dalvik virtual machine, infringed on patents oracle had acquired with it's purchase of Sun Microsystems. Oracle lost their case, but Google learned a lesson and started building … [Read More...]
