Emil Franzi: How one putrid apple can ruin an orchard

Emil Franzi: How one putrid apple can ruin an orchard

By Emil Franzi I started in local talk radio in 1996 at KTUC. Despite our differences, I thank Tom Hassey for giving me that first opportunity which lasted until 1997. I came back later on KTKT in 1999, moved to the JOLT 1230 AM and to KVOI in Jan of 2006. Lots of folk helped […]

Mike Tully “Substantial Disruption”: Arizona’s voucher bill and the new segregation

Mike Tully “Substantial Disruption”: Arizona’s voucher bill and the new segregation

By Mike Tully When the Arizona Legislature passed, and Governor Ducey signed Senate Bill 1431, they opened the door to a substantial replacement of public schooling with a taxpayer-supported system of private and parochial schools.  Proponents claim their objective was to maximize school choice, despite insufficient evidence it will improve educational outcomes.  Critics claim there […]

Phil Richardson: A time of worldwide saber rattling

Phil Richardson: A time of worldwide saber rattling

By Phil Richardson Paradox: A statement that seems to be contradictory or absurd. Just before the cavalry charged in those many battles now forgotten in the mists of time, the officers would shake their swords inside metal sheaths, and then while milling about, draw their weapons and clash their swords against those held by other […]

Emil Franzi: Random thoughts – 4/12/17

By Emil Franzi ASSAM ISN’T GOING ANYWHERE Are you all a little tired of being told “Assad has to go”? He’s made it rather clear he ain’t leaving so the only way he goes is feet first. Unlike some prior guys with his gig in other artificial countries like Iraq and Jordan also drawn on […]

The first time I replied to your comments, I made a good-faith effort to correct some of the errors in your thinking that produced your flawed opinions. Now I can see that my […]

Phil Richardson: Meet Robert Mercer – Part II

Phil Richardson: Meet Robert Mercer – Part II

By Phil Richardson According to Webster’s Dictionary, an algorithm is “A sequence of steps for programming a computer to solve a specific problem.” (Nearly every time I type the word, I either misspell it or feel a need to run it through a spell checker.) It’s one of those hot words made popular by computer […]

Barney Brenner: Chemical deterrence

Barney Brenner: Chemical deterrence

By Barney Brenner It’s not hard to make the case that the recent chemical weapons use in Syria was more a test for the new US president then an advisable military action. Clearly, the deaths achieved with nerve gas could have been duplicated with conventional arms. But after the actions – or, more accurately, inactions […]

Emil Franzi: Dr. Star’s view of government representation is way off

Emil Franzi: Dr. Star’s view of government representation is way off

By Emil Franzi Editor note: Franzi continues from where he left off on Dr. Marriah Star’s idea of expanding government representation. So, you will increase MY representation by enlarging the lower House of Congress to about 11,000 members. Sorry, but that’s absurd. But I’m glad you advocate it because the advocacy of something that bizarre […]
