Laundry Love Project - Neighbors Helping Neighbors

Here is an example of how neighbors should be and not how it has been lately in Mesa.

A group of people have gotten together to help their fellow neighbors do some laundry if they are short on cash and need some clean clothes. The group has been doing this for almost two years now. First at a laundry on main Street and now at Central Plaza laundry on Mesa Dr.

The project goes on the 1st Friday of every month from 7pm to 9pm. No questions are asked, come in put your clothes in a washing machine and then a drier.

The program is run on donations and every little bit helps. It doesn't matter if it is $5, $10, $15 or $20. This is an on going project.

One of the volunteers even collects used plastic water bottles, recycles them and uses the money to buy more water to hand out. So bring your used water bottles when you come.

If you would like to make a donation contact me at mesalaundry(at)

Randy Parraz & Recall Candidates & Dirty Tricks - Update

Randy Parraz & Recall Candidates & Dirty Tricks

Here is an example of how Randy Parraz and his recall candidates are working to over turn and disrupt the voice of the people because they don't like the immigration stance and promises made and kept by Senator Russell Pearce.I firmly believe that voters need to understand those behind the recall, their supporters, candidates, there cause.

 As and example:

At a private invitation only event last night put on by some friends of Russell Pearce's, Randy Parraz and some West Mesa Republicans show up uninvited and without an invitation. When they attempted to force their way into the event pushing and shoving people out of the way. They proceeded  to assault a female guest who was in their way.

One of the protester was yelling that he was a school teacher and had a letter for Senator Pearce. As it turns out the letter was a flier from Randy Parraz. The male individual was escorted out by law enforcement and in the process attempted to kiss one of the male officers. How embarrassing and rude this must be for the voters of Mesa's district 18.

How shameful this is for Mesa Republicans, who talk about raising the bar but yet stoop to this. The Senator recognized and knew some of those Republican from Mesa who showed up. I haven't decided if I will release their names and I'm leaning toward not doing so at this moment.

I'm disheartening and disappointed to see Republicans and candidates joining hands with Randy Parraz and his extreme liberal agenda to destroy the values of America. The hate for those who stand up for traditional families, the hate for those who defend the unborn, the hate for those who believe and defend the rule of law and destroy the successes of Arizona.

I will fight to let people know who is behind the recall and their agenda. That is why I'm proud to wear the badge of honor bestowed upon me the Phoenix New Slime yesterday.

Majority of Senators Support Russell Pearce & His Leadership

Letter of support, there Senators would not support Senate President Russell Pearce if he was not keeping and doing what he promised to do. Do not believe Randy Parraz, Jerry Lewis and others who would tell you differently. I know the majority of these people and they are free thinkers and do not just follow orders.
July 15, 2011 (a letter from all but 3 of the Republican State Senators in complete support of Senator Pearce

We, the undersigned Senators, support Senate President Russell Pearce. Since 2000, the voters in his district have trusted President Pearce to represent them in the Arizona legislature.

Similarly, his peers in the Senate trusted him to be the Senate President in the Fiftieth Legislature. Additionally, during his legislative career, leadership has entrusted him with the chairmanships of committees like the powerful and important Senate Appropriations Committee.

Since he was first elected to legislative office, President Pearce has been a leader in creating jobs, keeping taxes low, securing the border, immigration enforcement, advocating for school choice, and a host of other legislative issues.

President Pearce has authored several statewide ballot propositions that passed with overwhelming voter support. The President has also received numerous awards for his leadership throughout his legislative career.

He has efficiently and effectively fulfilled the role as Senate President. He adhered to legislative time lines, maintained an organized process and worked with his colleagues to conclude the 50th Legislature, First Regular Session by the 100th day – the first time in many years.

Considering his qualifications, his leadership, his long and storied history of service to the state and his love of his state and country, we support his re-election in the November recall election.

Bad Services, Should You Say Something or Be Quite?

The Stage:

You are at a one of Mesa many restaurants and you find the food or service to be absurdly bad. Or for that matter it could be any other business.

What Do You Do:

Do you say something or do you just walk out the door not to return again and then tell all your friends about how bad the service and food was?

The Majority:

The majority of people would say nothing and the business would never be the smarter.

To say nothing is the easy thing to do, it take a little more courage to call the manager or owner over and express your thoughts and concerns. By not letting someone know of you dis-satisfaction, the owner can't take action to correct the problem. The owner may not of even know about the problem. Many times you are not the only one thinking this, it is just that the others didn't have the courage to stand up. Conversely you should do the same thing if you receive good service.

So when I'm asked do you fear being labeled for expressing your views, I say No.

If I'm thinking or saying it, it just means that others out there are thinking the same thing. The only difference is that I've expressed it, sometime eloquently and sometimes not so much.

On some issues I'm going to ask you to stretch, think about the opposite point of view. Some people may feel uncomfortable with what I have to say on certain topics, such as Russell Pearce, Education, Government and elected officials. My whole point in making you feel this way is to get you to think. It may not be conventional and it may not be politically correct but if I get you to think that is good.

I make no apologize for my comments and if you disagree with me that is OK too. I'm not going to hold it against you. Are people going to agree all the time on every single issue No. Do I expect everybody to agree with me No. If we all agreed this would be a very boring place to live.

Jerry Lewis & Utah Compact, Unconstitutional!

Jerry Lewis says that he fully supports the Utah Compact (The Arizona Guardian) but the problem is the Utah Compact and its supporting bill in the Utah are unconstitutional and doing to help illegal immigrants in this country. Even the the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints is backing away from it.

This only leads us to one conclusion Jerry Lewis knows nothing about constitution of the United States of America, its founding principles, or the Arizona Constitution or any of the immigration laws that have been passed.

On the other hand Russell Pearce understand the law and immigration legislation passed in Arizona is being found to be constitutional and majority of those in Arizona support the laws.

Jerry Lewis on the other hand he just wants the Hispanics to fell welcome in his country and he doesn't care if they are legal or illegal. (Tribune Oct 2005)

By Ronald W. Mortensen, April 13, 2011

Did the Salt Lake Chamber dupe Utah's religious organizations, social justice groups, and media outlets into helping it pass legislation that ;guarantees its business members a large pool of low-cost, easily exploited illegal alien labor? It appears that that may have been the case.

What Does Jerry Lewis & Kevin Gibbons Have In Common?

The question is what does Jerry Lewis the wana be Mesa LD 18 candidate and Kevin Gibbons have in common?

  1. Randy Parraz - Union organizer, pro-gay marriage, failed U.S. Senate candidate
  2. Chad Snow - immigration attorney, open border supporter
  3. Chase Barrett/Nathan Sproul - Kevin Gibbons campaign managers (The Arizona Guardian)
If you guessed number 3 you are right.

If you remember the campaign 3 or so years ago, you will recall that it was one of the dirties races ever run by an opposing candidate. It was a campaign that attacked Senator Pearce wife and family, friends and anyone else who supported Pearce or his run office.

If you don't remember it was Kevin Gibbons immigration attorney, Jeff Flakes brother-in-law and it was Mike Haller, Jeff Flakes staffer who dug up the domestic violence charges that really didn't happen.

Jerry Lewis has said that he wants this to be a clean positive race yet he goes out and hirer the same campaign consultants who ran one of the dirties campaigns in state history.

In my opinion Jerry Lewis is just plan stupid or is just really naive, in either case I think Jerry Lewis is taking the gloves off and is going knuckle to knuckle with Senate President Russell Pearce. I really think Dea Montague, John Giles, Mike Cowan, Beth Coons, Rich Crandell and others pushing Jerry to run had better step back and rethink things and really see if they want to be associated with people like Randy Parraz, Nathan Sproul and Chase Barrett.

Jerry Lewis Not Endorsed By Own Organization.

Jerry Lewis who is running against Senate President Russell Pearce has been snuffed by the very organization that Sequoia belongs to. I believe that their rejection of Jerry Lewis goes along way in saying who represents education better in the state of Arizona.

PHOENIX, Ariz. – Today, Arizona Parents for Education, a grassroots group promoting the interests of Arizona's public school distance learning programs, today announced that Senate President Russell Pearce was named the 2011 Golden Apple Award Winner. Previous winners include Governor Jan Brewer, former Senate President Tim Bee, former state Representative David Lujan, and Senator Linda Lopez.

"Arizona is fortunate to have Senate President Pearce fighting for our children," Arizona Parents for Education President Ann Robinett said. "Russell has been a tireless advocate for education in our great state. His steadfast support for distance learning and educational choice has improved education for our children at every level, and we can't thank him enough for his efforts," concluded Robinett.

There are more than 20,000 Arizona students who participate in Arizona Online Instruction programs statewide. For more information visit us on the web at

Mesa Public Schools - Should They Be Rewarded For Failing?

The Mesa Tribune News paper recently published a story indicating that 32 schools of Mesa's 83 schools failed Arizona's and the federal government's educational standards. That is a nearly 39 percent.

Michael Cowan, superintendent of Mesa's public school system, comments are a little shocking. He basically said that he wasn't surprised because most districts didn't pass.

And get the attitude of Ray Chavez, the principal at Carson Junior High. His attitude is we haven't made it for give years so it is really no big surprise. This guy was hired to be a turn around specialist. He also put the blame back on the kids insinuating that it is because the kids qualify for free or reduced lunches. That to me sounds like an excuse.

And just think that Mesa's School Board was going to ask for millions of dollars in additional taxes on your home to pay for these failing schools.

First I think the schools need to show significant improvement in meeting the educational standards before asking me and you the tax payer to pony up any more money.

You do not reward bad behavior with more money.

What do you think should Mesa Public Schools be rewarded when 39 percent of the schools fail to make the standard?
