Welcome To The GOP Primary, Jeb Bush Video

On Tuesday, Jeb Bush officially threw the first hat in what’s soon to be a very crowded ring, announcing his formation of a Leadership PAC and his interest in running for president. Already, his entrance in to the race is being met with headlines like “Jeb Bush, Meet Your Many Conservative Critics” and fomenting the kind of party infighting that is certain to characterize the 2016 GOP primary. Jeb’s Romneyesque private equity issues make him an appetizing potential opponent for Democrats, but first he’ll have to win over a base that he’s hardly endeared himself to for a chance at the nomination.

Arizona Corporation Commission Warns Business Owners of Misleading Solicitation

ARIZONA CORPORATION COMMISSION

Annual Business Services” Not Affiliated with Arizona Corporation Commission
 
PHOENIX—The Arizona Corporation Commission is warning Arizona business owners that an organization with the name “Annual Business Services” is sending out official-looking documents offering  a service to prepare annual minutes for corporations. These solicitations, requesting payment of a $125 fee, are not issued by the Corporation Commission. The Arizona Corporation Commission is not affiliated in any way with “Annual Business Services.” Further, business owners are not required to file “annual minutes” with the Arizona Corporation Commission. 
 
The entity making this solicitation is creating confusion by using language in the solicitation that is similar to that in Corporation Commission documents and citing state statutes.  The forms carry an official-looking time deadline for filing and include the Arizona Corporation Commission file number assigned to the business.  Further, a map search of the “Annual Business Services” return address, places it as a mailbox at a UPS Store in Phoenix.
 
If you have received this document, YOU ARE NOT REQUIRED TO REPLY. If you wish to file a complaint, you can contact the Arizona Attorney General’s Office in Phoenix at (602) 542-5763, in Tucson at (520) 628-6504, or outside the Phoenix and Tucson metro areas at 1-(800)-352-8431. To file the complaint online, please visit the Attorney General’s web site at www.azag.gov

President Signs AZ Rep Paul Gosar Bill Honoring Barry Goldwater into Law

Senator Goldwater still serves as a shining example of what all elected officials should strive for in their efforts to serve the American people”
WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, U.S. Congressman Paul A. Gosar, D.D.S. (AZ-04) released the following statement after President Obama signed into law the Congressman’s sponsored bill H.R. 3027, to designate the facility of the United States Postal Service located at 442 Miller Valley Road in Prescott, Arizona, as the “Barry M. Goldwater Post Office”:

“I am happy to see the president sign my bill honoring Barry Goldwater into law without delay. Designating a post office in the same town where Senator Goldwater announced his candidacy for President of the United States is a fitting tribute to an exemplary man.
“Now, more than ever, Senator Goldwater still serves as a shining example of what all elected officials should strive for in their efforts to serve the American people. He never wavered in his convictions or compromised his integrity and always fought hard to uphold the Constitution. I am proud to have played a part in honoring this Arizona hero and continue to be inspired by his remarkable life.”
Additional

The entire Arizona Delegation—both Republicans and Democrats—are co-sponsors of the bill.

Congressman Gosar introduced this bill following town halls in the Prescott area where constituents called for honoring the late Senator. Over 100 Arizona residents signed a petition to rename the Miller Valley Road post office. The location was suggested by the local postmaster.

Waltzed Across Texas To Palestine, Texas That Is

Driving from Scottsdale to Irongate Ranch in Palestine for Holidays and a wedding was a bitch of a trip. Construction outside of El Paso for miles (I’ve always hated driving through El Paso).
Along the way noticed some interesting sites, that I hadn’t paid much attention to before. Texas Canyon in located in Arizona about 20 miles east of Benson on Interstate10 .
Made it to Van Horn Texas the first day and to waltzing across Texas.
By the time I reached Abilene all I saw from Monahan’s to Abilene, Texas was oil, oil, fields and oil refineries.
Texas is oil country. It leads the nation in oil production, and would be one of the top oil-producing nations if it were its own country.
Then it was  Pumping Oil,  Wind Farms and Cotton Fields together.
From Odessa to my turn off on HWY 287 south to Palestine the construction was off and on one stretch was 32 miles with one lane. My guesstimate in all there were 200-300 miles of some sort of construction.

Made Iron Gate Ranch on day 2, after making a wrong turn onto FM663 at a construction
detour. By the time I got there it was darker than night. Started getting dark around 4:30 PM Arizona Time 5:30 PM Texas Time.
.
Wednesday started my helping with wedding plans. Visited with Trica at women's club to discuss table arrangements then shopping.

Today  Gay and I are meeting John (he groom) Cindy (the Bride) and Sarah at the Church to discuss decorations for wedding. Then to florist to choose floral arrangements for reception. I'm in charge of cake table. Catch you guys up later.
