Im no fan of Arpaio, having lived in Phoenix for 9 years and meeting him on several occasions.Yea, so?
You have only been here a week. By a majority of the members here Arpaio is likely the most respected person in government around here...I suggest you keep your underlying negative comments about him to yourself if you want to stay.
This is an open discussion forum. Who gave you the right to demand someone else conform to your opinion?
Wow! I get home from my Chamber of Commerce mixer to find a threat, a warning, an insult and a valid request to deliniate my issues with Sheriff Joe.
With regard to me being a “newbie”, yes I am new to posting. However, I have lurked on FR off and on for approximately 2 years. I know how popular Sheriff Joe is here, although I seriously doubt that “a majority of the members here (think) Arpaio is likely the most respected person in governmentr around here.” Indeed, I am surprised at how little attention this thread received.
Please note that I didn’t say anything negative about Arpaio; I simply said that I not an Arpaio fan. Indeed, I said that I hope he wins and, after reading the supporting brief, I believe that he has a good chance. As far as setting forth my issues with him, I see no need and it’s been my experience that noone would change their mind if I did. My Dad and my best friend (both are in Phoenix) are huge Arpaio supporters and while they acknowledge my points as valid, they aren’t even close to changing their opinion of Sheriff Joe. As long as Arpaio fights illegal immigration and treats prisoners harshly, they’re happy with him. BTW, my issues with him don’t have anything to do with those issues.
Anyway, I am a devout Christian conservative who has studied the Bible in depth as well as the writings of Deitrich Bonhoeffer and C.S. Lewis. Please note that 2 of my 3 first posts on FR quote Bonhoeffer.
I look forward to posting more often and don’t really care if you keep an eye on me.
Have a good evening.
