Border Folly

From Governor Jan Brewer to Sheriff Joe Arpaio to a Tea Party–dominated state legislature, no state deserves the tag “Kookocracy” as much as Arizona, and in Arizona there’s no bigger issue than immigration and border security. As immigration reform takes center stage in Washington, one man in Arizona is caught in the middle.

Heilig shows us where he pries the barbed wire back to shoo the Mexican cattle through.“The fence is the biggest joke in the world,” he says.“This huge, immense thing that cost millions, and then four-strand barbed-wire fence. You look at it and go, Huh?”

When you try to understand Arizona’s dysfunction—and maybe, God forbid, America’s—you have to start at The Fence and the grand self-delusion that the border could be fortified enough to keep out the invading brown horde. An ugly symbol of a frightened nation, it has fooled no one, except perhaps the politicians in far-off Washington who built it and made it their proxy for immigration reform. But it has barely slowed the Mexicans who’ve climbed over it, dug under it, cut through it, or, as on Heilig’s ranch and elsewhere, simply walked around it. To be sure, the numbers of undocumented border crossers are down, from more than a million a year to a few hundred thousand. It took the Great Recession to stifle the northward migration. The flow of drugs, on the other hand, continues unabated; America’s demand is insatiable and the fence has barely slowed the smugglers.

America’s Shameful Nazi Past

It is not too late to right a painful wrong. As International Holocaust Remembrance Day approaches this weekend, President Obama has an historic opportunity to act. He can issue an executive order to open currently classified U.S. archives to researchers and journalists, and he can issue a formal apology to Holocaust survivors and victims and their families.

Here’s a way we can end legal bribery

The oratory was inspiring, but the budget is where rhetoric turns into reform – or not.

Whatever you don’t like about New York – construction laws that drive up public costs, corporate tax breaks, collective-bargaining laws stacked against taxpayers – can be traced to a campaign system that amounts to legalized bribery.

Changing it would cost New Yorkers about $2 per year, far less than we pay now for government run by lobbyists.

The Gallery of "Bush = Hitler" Allusions

A quick note, first, about what counts as a "Bush = Hitler" allusion for these purposes.

Obviously, someone saying "that George Bush guy is just like Hitler" counts. So does the ever-so-creative addition of a little Hitler-style mustache onto photographs or cartoons. So too does someone starting out "George Bush isn't like Hitler..." and then continuing "...but given X and Y and Z you can understand why some people are saying he is".

So too does someone starting out "George Bush isn't like Hitler..." and then continuing with flattery of Hitler "...because Hitler was elected
/ didn't drink / actually served his time in the army".

Implying that the Nazis were behaving better than the US certainly counts, such as "Not even the Nazis treated their prisoners this badly". Oh, and comparisons between September 11th and the Reichstag fire count as well.

Barack Obama is worst ever U.S. president

My apologies. First, I would like to give my apologies to former President Bush. I was upset that W. spent so much money.
Well, President Obama makes Bush look like Reagan. I'm sorry, George, and my apologies to "Bubba" William Jefferson Clinton. I was angry because Clinton was so friendly with lawbreakers like James and Susan McDougal, and he lied under oath. And he cheated on his wife. And he turned down a chance to get bin Laden.
But Obama makes him look like JFK. My apologies for that impeachment thing. If any president is in need of impeachment, it's Obama.
My apologies to James Earl Carter. Until now, he was our worst president. I'm sorry, Mr. Carter. I was wrong. President Obama is our country's worst president. Obama makes Carter look like Truman.
My apologies to the media. Good Lord, I thought the media in the tank for Clinton. But the love they have for Obama makes the way they treated Clinton look like the way they hated Bush. Come on, MSNBC should just call themselves DNCTV. My apologies to CNN, because MSNBC makes CNN look like Fox News. Is President Obama the president of the U.S. or MSNBC?

Take the black community. Obama says,“We stand for the black community. All we care about is defending them because they need special protection.” If you oppose the Left’s policies, you are, therefore, in favor of blacks being victimized. So that explains why the Left is so adamant that there is no such thing as a real black conservative, because the black conservative completely throws them. It’s a member of that victimized group who doesn’t believe that they need the Left’s defense. So that throws the Left off. If they can’t define themselves as defenders of a group, then the Left goes crazy because they have no fundamental reason for being.
The Larry Elders of the world, the Ward Connellys, the Clarence Thomases, the Condoleezza Rices, the Herman Cains –their very existence gives lie to the liberal motion that their mission is to defend black people because they don’t need the Left’s defense. And not only that, they say the Left doesn’t have the solutions to help us. So the Left has to define them as not black and that’s why you see them do that.

Gov. Perry: Boy Scouts Should Keep No-Gay Policy

Perry is an Eagle Scout and in 2008 he authored the book "On My Honor: Why the American Values of the Boy Scouts Are Worth Fighting For." It detailed the governor's deep love for the organization and explained why it should continue to embrace traditional, conservative values — including excluding openly gay members and scout leaders.

Exactly- any "Rico" is welcome to the game. Internet commandos are so impressive, aren't they? For coyotes, a variety of calls and decoys are effective, for his kind, you demonstrate intelligence and experience and they feel challenged. when or IF we get to that stage, being named "Rico" (or claiming to be one) will be like wearing a bullseye.

That was a more entertaining retotrt than mine- I'm still learning the art of sarcasm. Video gaming didn't occur to me as I don't play those games. PS- coyotes as a species are about to (or already have) birth their new cubs. Time to get the gear ready. Picked up a .17 HMR to minimize pelt damage.

Tell us dim bulb, how a picture of a gun on a laptop is a bad thing, but movies showing ultra-violence is good thing...
This aughta be good for a few laughs.
I normally wouldn't waste my time with an obvious troll like you, but the idea that most mass shooter have been liberals is making it's way through the right wing blogosphere based on the unsupported claims of one right wing conspiracy nut known as Roger Hedgecock , but the claim has been proven false.

Here's an article from THE EXAMINER that goes through the list of mass shooters and proves that these claims are false.

----------

The idea that recent mass shooters are mostly registered Democrats is a myth

...Hedgecock asserts, without providing any evidence or sources, that the Ft. Hood shooter, the Virginia Tech shooter, the Aurora Theater shooter and Adam Lanza of Sandy Hook infamy were all “registered Democrats”...

...Interestingly, Hedgecock and those on the far right have conveniently overlooked a number of cases where ideology is clearly right-wing. The acts below are instances of right-wing violence that are unequivocally committed by people who are openly hostile to liberalism. While this does not mean these killers are Republicans, it is quite clear that they are RIGHT-WINGERS...."

No POTUS in the history of the country has polarized the populace like this one has. No POTUS has spent and misspent like this one has. If you are correct in placing a halo over his head, WHY is there a movement to put his likeness on Mt Rushmore? To repeal the "two terms" clause in the Constitution? To determine once and for all the questions on his ACTUAL citizenship? His college transcripts? His Passing the Buck every time one of his EOs results in utter failure? The PITIFUL attempt by the media in regards to his "skeet shooting" photo shoot? Speaking of the media, it's obvious there is a concerted conspiracy enmasse with the exception of FOXNEWS, who refuses to cowtow to the WH. All of this is patently disgusting to me (and millions of others), but if you think he's an innocent little pawn, then WHO, Dear Lady, is behind all this?

If congress is serious about CIR they will speed up the process for deportations.. No backlog and no hearing once their time is served if any on the bus or plane you go..

The law seems to allow discretion of the Courts on the deportation of any immigrant that holds a legal status. You see it all the time where both liberal & conservative judges play their judicial activism all the time on deportation rulings.

Regarding an illegal alien, as of now and due to "limited resources" immigration detainers are only being placed on illegal alien criminals who commit serious crimes.

If you are a citizen on probation and get arrested your probation is usually revoked.. The same should be for any illegal alien that gets probationary status..
Eagle
Depending on the crime committed I would agree with you that probationary status should be challenged but only in a court of law where the subject has been found guilty of the crime.
