The ones with money are always trying to limit someone else from spending money on free speech, usually some union's speech. But for corporations, the NRA, and the Club for Growth, spending millions means getting the "message" out.

The [small] donations from multiple small donors are really the correct approach. It's too bad the system is manipulated.

Olmsted's as sleazy as the rest: Bishop Thomas Olmsted is just as big a clown as was Thomas O'Brien, only O'Brien was more sinister.

But Olmsted's sinister enough. You've got to admit that the Phoenix area gets what it deserves, a right-winger who hates gays and wants to maintain the old-school Catholic traditions that even moderates in the church are abandoning.

The Bird is correct when he says the reason Olmsted doesn't speak out on illegal immigration is that he represents the interests of the church's biggest benefactors, who keep him in the finest vestments.

Olmsted's just another sleazy politician. Lest we forget, the Catholic Church practically invented dirty politics centuries ago.

Bishop's smart; Bird's not: Olmsted may have to minister to his flock of illegals, but at least he realizes that it would be wrong to support them publicly. What is The Bird thinking? What about illegal does the Feathered Bastard not understand? Apparently everything.

Anger management, Dave. Try it: Can't we all just get along? Racial profiling, discrimination, police brutality, false arrest? So many people upset and angry. So many people fed up.

Not to worry, my poor little people. There is a solution to your anguish and pain. Pick up your sorry little asses, and get the hell out of Arizona! Move to Los Angeles, Houston, Atlanta, or Chicago. You will be murdered and put out of your misery.

Calling out a fellow reader: I always purposely pick up a copy of New Times every week in front of the sheriff's peons. I am waiting for the day that his peons pull me over for my skin color so I can give them a taste of their own medicine.

For those who don't know history, like Fred Linsenmeyer (Feedback, April 2), they need to go back to school. The natives didn't copulate willingly. The majority were raped by the Spaniards and [other] Europeans.

I love being an American, but I hate being among [Americans] who think everyone is not created equal.
Diane Martinez, Phoenix

Reader's just another Snuffy from AZ: Where did New Times dig up this reader, Fred Linsenmeyer? Did you breathe life into the corpse of some undetected Nazi war criminal who came to Arizona from Germany after World War II?

No, a Nazi would be much more intelligent than Linsenmeyer. Despite his Third Reich-sounding name, he's just another Snuffy from Arizona. A dumbass racist, like Buffalo Rick Galeener.

Don't you just love it when some ignorant idiot like Linsenmeyer starts spouting his version of history — where "white Europeans" are the master race and everybody else is just a "shit-pot" little mud person? This guy deserves a good old-fashioned ass-kicking.
