2022 Arizona Ballot Initiatives

Pretty interesting some of the advertising around the state propositions. In particular proposition 132 ads in Arizona are disingenuous at best. Here is My take:

Proposition 128

Diverting funds from things found to be illegal or unconstitutional. Basically makes it easier for the legislature to use the funds elsewhere if they can't use them for their intended purpose.

Soft Yes

Proposition 129

An attempt to keep ballot initiatives to a more narrow focus. I think this is a good idea overall


Proposition 130

Clerical cleanup of property tax exemptions.


Proposition 131

Create a Lt Governor position. Just what we need, another bureaucrat!


Proposition 132

“This amendment would mean that moving forward any initiative or referendum to approve a tax would need a super-majority, 60% YES vote to become law. Currently, a new tax on the ballot only needs a simple majority to be approved.”

This has been sold by ads as blocking pay for police and firefighters. What a crock of malarky.

Yes – Hell yes, if it's a good idea to raise some tax, 6 of 10 in the legislature ought to think so before we do it.

Proposition 209

Ahh, - nother emotional tugger. All the poor people going broke over medical debt. I'm just not sure this is the correct response for the problem.


Proposition 211

Campaign contribution disclosures. Personally I think you should disclose where every penny came from. This law is not the right way to do that.


Proposition 308

College financial aid for illegal aliens. No way. If you want to be in the US do it legally. I have too many friends that have done it the right way. If you do it the right way, it just isn't a problem. Follow the damn law.


Proposition 309

Strengthening voter id requirements. As a general rule I think if you are too stupid to figure out how to vote, you probably shouldn't be voting. It's just not that difficult.

Yes, but let's not over do it. See: Suppressing The Vote

Proposition 310

Funding for more “Fire District Safety”. Vote no on new sales taxes.

Media Bias

I don't know why people think there is bias at google. A simple look at the search results from Google, Bing, and Duck-Duck-Go centering around the Arizona governor's race shows plainly that there is no bias whatsoever. This is clearly not bias, Google is simply actively campaigning for Ms Hobbs. After all Kari lake is “dangerous”, so Google needs to make sure that the vast majority of it's search results either trash the evil Ms Lake or promote the glorious Ms Hobbs. If you don't agree you should really just shut your damn mouth. It's OK to mistreat people we don't like.


The google search for “Kari Lake” was just stunning. The vast majority of the google search results are not even about her, the first picture is a tiny thumbnail of her, and the rest are of either Ms Hobbs, or Ms Cheney. All of the results try to trash her. At least Bing has a variety of results. Duck-duck-go is a search aggregator for the most part.

The gubernatorial search result is more an indictment of the overall media bias, the sheer volume of anti-Lake, pro-Hobbs in the mainstream media is stunning. Who gives a flying crap about what some useless congresswoman from another state, who just lost her job because the people there don't want her any more, thinks about the people running in this state?

Kari, … You go girl, I am not afraid to speak up and neither should anyone else be.
