On Arizona's Illegal Immigration Bill

There has been a lot of hoopla in the news lately about Arizona's new immigration law. I personally think it's is a great bill. I don't have time to jot down all my thoughts on immigration policy, but I wanted to make a two quick points.

First, most people who are complaining about the new law have no idea what they are talking about, and have certainly not read the bill. Good articles are here and here.

Second, I really get ticked off at Mexico complaining about this law. Apparently, the mayor of Mexico city is considering joining lawsuits to stop the law. Hypocrisy, thy name is Mexico - e.g., Mexico is one to talk. I would be fine if the U.S. adopted an immigration policy similar to that of Mexico.

Tyranny Watch

See this video in which President Obama states that "at a certain point you've made enough money." What's that point? Who decides? Him? Someone else in the regime? President Obama was telling the truth when he said he wanted to" fundamentally transform" America. It appears that includes the American Dream as well as the Constitution.

Tyranny Watch

Dick Morris has in interesting article on the in which he discusses the "financial regulatory reform" bill currently being considered in the Senate. As Morris points out, the bill would give the President (and his Treasury Secretary) the power to take control over any financial institution he determines is "too big to fail" and on the brink of insolvency. There is no judicial review provided these institutions. Step by step, this regime/administration is marching toward a complete transformation of this country - where the rights we once enjoyed no longer have any relevance or import. Step by step, the United States is moving toward a Chavez/Castro-like banana republic. It is interesting that this "reform" bill was revived in importance after the Supreme Court's decision in Citizens United. One way to ensure that corporations use their newly restored First Amendment rights to support candidates and positions in the "correct" way is to have the power to take them over and fire everybody.

...more examples of the tyranny and proposed tyranny of this regime to follow.

The Wisdom of Ages Past

My dad sent me an e-mail with a link to this cartoon from 1948. It is amazingly prophetic and spot on. It's too bad we currently have a President who's trying to sell us a big ole vat of hopey, changey, ISM. It's kind of long, but it's worth the watching.

I hope and pray that we can convince the majority of the public that "ISM" isn't worth the cost.
