So the Supreme Court rules that Arizona cops actually CAN stop and ask people for their ID. Somehow this shouldn't come as a surprise, if you have half a working brain cell.
What did catch me off guard was the rush by Eric Holder, Mz Homeland Security (and by extension presumably the president hisself) to the mikes to declare that in retaliation for losing the case, they will defy the supremes and halt all cooperation with Arizona cops.
Just so long as one branch of government doesn’t defy another, eh? We all in this together.
This could be interesting – this “fuck you and your immigration stops” attitude by los federales – the next time the FBI or secret service rings up the Arizona state police and wants help apprehending a 10 most wanted guy. Do you think the Arizona bulls will just let bygones be bygones? I sure hope so. Serial killers and rapists and pedophiles are way bad.
I’m playing dumb here. We all know why Obama challenged Arizona in court. And why he then had his winged monkeys tell CNN they will defy the court ruling when it ruled against him. The elephant in the room is Mitt Romney.
If you doubt me, here’s another clue: Obama held a press conference earlier this month to announce he was abdicating his role as head of state, and would from now on refuse to enforce immigration laws. Well, he didn’t announce his abdication. But when – as president – you just tell everybody you’re going to ignore laws which are inconvenient to your re-election, its pretty much the same thing, right?
This will be a great precedent if we ever get a tea party guy in the white house of course. His first act will probably be to declare a right to carry concealed weapons in all 50 states, or repeal the income tax, or something. Thank you Mr Obama for the next 10,000 dead Treyvon Martins and $20 trillion in deficits. Your leadership made it possible.
Romney hasn’t picked Rubio as his running mate yet, and you're already wetting yourself. Be a man, why dontcha?
And stop taking my vote for granted. When I see those lawn crews zooming around, I don’t see black men. I see mostly economic refugees from latin america. At the end of the day, don’t we have at least SOME minimal obligation to provide jobs for teens of color? Kids who are otherwise left to get into trouble because they have no work and no money? The fricking unemployment rate for teens is 70% !!!!!
Stop kissing up to lawbreakers, Mr. President. Your job is to help the actual people of this country first. I may not vote for Romney in November, that doesn’t mean I'm going to rush out and vote for you either.
