Arizona


So I know I'm a little late to this game, but I had a few thoughts on Arizona's tough "new" immigration law.

My only issue with it is that it's redundant. It's IDENTICAL like the Federal immigration law, that has been in place since 1940. Arizona only needed to be redundant because the Federal Government didn't do their job to protect Arizona's borders, so Arizona took it upon themselves. Good for them, I say.

And of course, this makes the liberals scurry around like cockroaches do when you turn on the kitchen light - "It's profiling!", "It's racist!". (You know, their usual knee-jerk broken-record responses to anything...)

OF COURSE it's profiling. What are you going to do - waste taxpayer time and money sitting at the Mexican border waiting for Irish immigrants to cross it illegally? Better bring a book because you are going to wait for a very loooong time.

We have a serious problem with people crossing the MEXICAN border illegally. This is a border we share with MEXICO. The people who are coming across it are MEXICANS. It's really not all that hard. Maybe we should sit down with the liberals and train them with a "Where's Waldo?" book. "See? We're looking for that tall man with the red and white striped hat." I'm surprised they haven't accused the "Where's Waldo?" books of profiling.

And our dear Apologist-in-Chief, Obowma, had this charming thing to say about Arizona (found on Bill O'Reilly):

"If you are a Hispanic-American in Arizona, your Great-Grandparents may have been there before Arizona was a state. But now suddenly, if you don't have your papers and you took your kid out for ice cream, you are gonna be harassed. That's something that could potentially happen. That's not the right way to go."

Sorry, Mr. President, but my B.S. meter has gone off the charts. And correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't you the President of the WHOLE United States, all 57 of them? What are you doing admonishing one of the states in your country? Arizona is not a misbehaving child that you think you can talk down to. It's an equal member of our United States. You don't turn your back on a handful of states just because you disagree with them or they didn't vote for you. That's not what a leader does.

And this crap about not having your papers with you? I'm an American citizen and I need to carry my ID with me when I go out, for safety and other purposes. If I'm pulled over while driving a car and I don't have my license on me, I'll get fined. I don't think it's different for anyone else.

No "harassment" going on here, either. You can only be stopped if you are doing something illegally. (Hmmm, and an afterthought - is it considered "harassment" for someone to barge into your country, tell you what languages you should speak and what holidays you should celebrate? And order that you should give them free food, free health care, and free daycare because they are only trying to provide for their family? Is that "harassment", Mr. President? Like I said, just a thought...)

Now L.A. has approved a boycott of Arizona. Laughable, to say the least, but scary at the same time. One city in the United States of America boycotting a state in the same country. And our President, "The Great Uniter", stays silent. NOW is the time to speak up! NOW is the time , if any, to chide them and say, "No. We will not divide our country over this".

We are headed for disaster. States will continue to stand up for their rights, Obama will admonish them and other (Obamafatuated) states will boycott them with Obama saying nothing. It will rip this nation apart. We are headed for a divide and Obama is pushing us apart.

This might well be the best summation I've read about Arizona doing the job the Federal government won't. It's also the funniest.
