For those not familiar with Joe Arpaio, he is the county sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona. He keeps getting re-elected over and over again. These are some of the reasons why:

  • Sheriff Joe Arpaio created the “tent city jail” to save Arizona from spending tens of millions of dollars on another expensive prison complex; inmates sleep in tents!
  • He has jail meals down to 20 cents a serving and charges the inmates for them.
  • He banned smoking and pornographic magazines in the jails, took away their weightlifting equipment and cut off all but “G” movies. He says, “They’re in jail to pay a debt to society, not to build muscles so they can assault innocent people when they leave.”
  • He started chain gangs to use the inmates to do free work on county and city projects and save taxpayer’s money. Men work in pink “Clean(ing) and Sober” shirts. Their underwear is also pink!
  • Then he started chain gangs for women so he wouldn’t get sued for discrimination.
  • He took away cable TV until he found out there was a federal court order that required cable TV for jails. So he hooked up the cable TV again but only allows the Disney Channel and The Weather Channel. When asked why the weather channel, he replied, “So these morons will know how hot it’s gonna be while they are working on my chain gangs.”
  • He cut off coffee because it has zero nutritional value and is therefore a waste of taxpayer money. When the inmates complained, he told them, “This isn’t the Ritz. If you don’t like it, don’t come back.” 
  • He also bought the Newt Gingrich lecture series on US history that he pipes into the jails. When asked by a reporter if he had any lecture series by a Democrat, he replied that a democratic lecture series that actually tells the truth for a change would be welcome and that it might even explain why 95% of the inmates were in his jails in the first place.
  • With temperatures being even hotter than usual in Phoenix (116° F set a new record for June 2, 2009), the Associated Press reported that about 2,000 inmates living in a tent encampment surrounded by barbed wire at the Maricopa County Jail have been given permission to strip down to their government-issued pink boxer shorts. On that Wednesday, hundreds of men wearing pink boxer shorts were overheard chatting in the tents, where temperatures reached 128 degrees. “This is hell. It feels like we live in a furnace,” said Ernesto Gonzales, an inmate for 2 years with 10 more to go. “It’s inhumane.”
  • Joe Arpaio, who makes his prisoners wear pink and eat bologna sandwiches, is not one bit sympathetic. “Criminals should be punished for their crimes, not live in luxury until it’s time for parole, only to go out and commit more crimes so they can come back in to live on taxpayers money and enjoy things many taxpayers can’t afford to have for themselves.”
  • The same day he told all the inmates who were complaining of the heat in the tents: “It’s between 120 to 130 degrees in Iraq and our soldiers are living in tents there too, and they have to walk all day in that sun, wearing full battle gear and getting shot at, and THEY have not committed any crimes, so shut your damned mouths!”

Sheriff Joe was just re-elected for the fourteenth time as Sheriff in Maricopa County, Arizona.

Oh, this man. Why aren’t there more people like him?!

This has nothing to do with my blog but I love this man. He’s smart. Wish more Americans were like this.

insert-spooky-into-url said: Quitter? Obama and the lamestream media will do all they can to blame the Republicans for continued economic troubles if they try to obstruct the Demonrats. Can't prove them wrong and get most people to accept Republicans' ideas unless there's no way they can be blamed.

Rather than just voting present, which is similar to laying your gun on the ground and walking away the House could pass an extension of the existing tax levels and walk away. This would force the Dems to vote NO on extending the current rates thereby making Them Own the responsibility of raising taxes. It’s the difference of being “in the game” or just giving up. I’m a conservative and do not believe in just giving in.

I fully expect the deficit to hit $20T+ in 2016.

The left will call it progress.

You’re underestimating the libs. No way they will stop at $20T … the idiots don’t even believe in passing a budget.

oh no.  I really love peanut butter.  That would be like having to choose between happiness or no pain.

“If you have been voting for politicians who promise to give you goodies at someone else’s expense, then you have no right to complain when they take your money and give it to someone else, including themselves.”

Thomas Sowell (1992)

Remember in someone else’s eyes You are rich. In other words … Rich is Relative.
