Straight No Chaser: Sign Them Papers??
I can only hope in every city they perform in . . . there’s a loud, vocal, crowd. A large gathering of “the people” to protest the Grand Canyon States “Support Our Law Enforcement and Safe Neighborhoods Act.”
People, sports fans, united in solidaritywho realize the new immigration laws, to be both blunt n’ sharp – are little more than modern day “Brown Codes” based in large-part on racism and classism.
“Patriots” who wrap themselves in Ole Glory, package themselves as “good, decent, salt-of-the earth” folk, who apparently believe their desired end – cleansing the US of “undocumented illegal aliens” justifies any Neanderthal like means incorporated to get to that point.
If that course entails harassing and haranguing a significant slice of the American Pie to achieve that puritan rooted purity . . . so be it.
Granted, Mexicans are an pimped and exploited hard-working labor force; allowed, encouraged even – to migrate to the US by the American Aristocrats, who then utilize them to break the back of organized labor, lower the Union established living-wages via doing all the following for less.
Things like mowing the yard, cleaning the mini-mansions, building the new drive way, adding-on that 2nd wing, tending to the rug-rats mommy can’t squeeze into her daily schedule – somewhere between Yoga and wine tasting . . .
There’s simply no time for getting their hands dirty . . .
raising their own children.Some people just have issues with wiping their own kids behind.
And please note; any Fred or Barney can sue Johnny Law – any constable on Patrol (cop) observed not “rounding up the usual suspects” can be held accountable in a court of law.
People ponder, as do I, how this nation rounded people up . . . locked’em up on reservations. Or, how this country “interned” Japanese Americans after the day which has lived on in infamy.
And, I’ve often wondered how this nation could have conducted what many historians deem as one of the most brutal forms of slavery know to those who dare to call themselves . . . . humankind, and followed up the chains and whips with a red, white n’ blue version of Apartheid.
First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out — Because I was not a Socialist.
Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Trade Unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out – Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me — and there was no one left to speak for me.
Today it’s illegal aliens from Planet Mexico, tomorrow it’ll be Blacks, of all shapes, sizes, colors, religions, political partys, occupations and educational attainments.
Next week the Asians will be told they can only
place so many of their over-achieving sons and daughters in this nations best schools and before you know it, the obese fat-cats in Las Vegas will have their bought-and-paid-for politicians outlaw gambling on Indian reservations . . .
I’d rather give my money to Mormons then racist good ol’ boys. Well, maybe not, but nonetheless, I’ll be headed to Taos or Sante Fe, screw John McCain.
These men are elephants disguised as snakes . . . and today I can’t tell you which is worst. The team owners are vested members of the Angry White male country club.
” The Kendrick klan , owners of the AZ team and team executives have greased the palms of Arizona Republican machine , with more then a million bucks for the upcoming political season. . .over a million bucks!
However their partisan contributions are nothing new – Diamondback founder and former owner Jerry Colangelo was deputy chair of Bush/Cheney 2004 in Arizona.
That “D” on their backs don’t have a damn thing to do with Democrats. They ought to rename themselves the Rubybacks .
They believe the last straw was placed on their camel’s back.I refuse to aide n’ abet, support, underwrite racist sexist and elitist individuals, institutions, organizations and Nations.
Translation – I won’t be taking my Black ass to anything remotely associated with a state I love, AZ.
