ODD: Arizona the Face of "Red America" in This Congressman's Post About "Another" Armed Civil War (ARIZONA'S POLITICAL SHORTS)

ODD: Arizona the Face of "Red America" in This Congressman's Post About "Another" Armed Civil War
10:30am: Arizona is the face of "Red America" in Congressman Steve King's (R-IA) weekend Facebook post about "another" armed civil war. While it is no doubt a re-posting of a meme he or his campaign staff found elsewhere, King added the smirky comment "Wonder who would win....😏"
King's campaign Facebook account is quite active in re-posting memes such as this, but he deleted this civil war post after it began to receive wider attention. King was cited by name in a Congressional resolution passed in January rejecting White nationalism and White supremacy; he voted for the resolution, which was approved 424-1.

Arizona is the face of "Red America" in this meme. However, it is more likely because the size and the shape of the Grand Canyon State fit the bill than that the political makeup or the number of bullets earned us that high profile position. (Although it does look like we are about to have a very red bloody nose.😏 We need to get our guard up.)

OFF-TOPIC: Join our Diamondbacks Season Ticket Group
9:00am: We've been part of a Diamondbacks season ticket group for 20 years now, and a couple of our members had life changes that prompted them to stop participating. We have two seats that are probably the best value in the ballpark. One share is 16 games over the 6-month season, and although we assign the games randomly, everyone is usually pretty accomodating for switches. If you are interested, email me, at Paul @ (no spaces), and I'll send you more details.

OFF-TOPIC: Join our Powerball lottery pool
9:00am: With the Powerball lottery jackpot climbing, we usually fire up our office lottery pool. The more, the merrier is what we always say about a pool party, so we are inviting you to join us. $10/share, and we'll split our winnings pro rata. If you're interested, send us an email today or tomorrow at Paul @ (no spaces), and we'll send you the details.
