    Never happen... Never say Never? let me repeat... NEVER HAPPEN...

    Make no mistake, I like Sheriff Joe... but it will never happen.

    Maybe not 2012 but 2016? That is six years Sheriff Arpaio. Since I don't see anyone better coming up from the current ranks, the Sheriff would have my vote. We need someone with strong convictions of right and wrong in D.C. to clean up that cesspool.

    As much as I admire Sheriff Joe, he's doing too good a job in his current position for me to want him to move up to higher office. Inside the Beltway there are only re-election-minded Congresscritters and a pork-barrel mentality within the Federal government, and I fear that wading through the likes of them would diminish his effectiveness.

    Maybe he should try his hand at governor, first

    He would certainly be an improvement over the current fiasco. Then again, so would I.

    Too bad John Wayne is not with us anymore. I'd vote for him (if he was anything like the characters he played)!

    Sheriff Joe hasn't cleaned up the Maricopa County Government yet, although he has tried. We still need him there.

    Doesnt fit the self defense topic, thread closed.

    Threads posted in "In the News: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly"
    We are getting an increasing number of "off topic" threads posted to the "In the News" forum. So much so that it is beginning to become a general crime story repository that is really not the focus of this forum. If you come across news items that have some real application to concealed carry, open carry, successful (or unsuccessful) armed self defense please feel free to post them, but "general crime" stories, not associated with self defense in any way should be avoided. Likewise for stories of crime in countries other than the US.

    While I appreciate that our members enjoy the forum and want to post items of personal interest regardless of topic, I believe that we are, over time, broadening the focus of the forum too much in including some of these topics. Please help us keep the forums' topics "on topic".
