Bravo Arizona!

What's left to say that hasn't already been said? Arizona has done what it had to do to protect its citizens and enforce the rule of law. If the federal government did its job, the state wouldn't have needed to pass its new law. But the federal government not only has failed to do its job, it is openly hostile to the task of protecting Americans from the drug cartels and smugglers that have turned our border into a bloody no man's land, and it has looked the other way as our communities have been flooded with people who ignored our laws and disrespected our sovereignty, and who make it harder and harder for less educated, less skilled American workers to get a job.

In the 1970s and 80s, a poor, uneducated black, Hispanic, white or other American had some hope of making an honest living as a janitor, cook, construction worker, etc. Today, forget it. All the manual labor jobs go to illegals who work for less pay and will accept less safe working conditions. This month, the Bureau of Labor Statistics released these statistics: While national unemployment stands at about 9.7%, among blacks the rate is 16.5%. Why is the rate so much higher for blacks? Because a greater proportion of blacks lack college degrees or high school diplomas, and so are in direct competition for jobs with illegals. And why on Earth would a small, independent contractor go to all the trouble of hiring a black American for framing, roofing, landscaping, etc., when he could pick up a truck load of illegals in front of any Home Depot without filling out any bothersome government forms, handling payroll deductions, or getting any attitude that he might expect from an American worker? Americans, after all, expect to be treated a certain way. An illegal is just happy to be making dramatically more money than they could dream of making in his homeland. He'll do whatever you ask and smile. Great for the contractor. Not so great for the poor black American citizen who just lost another opportunity to join the labor force and pull himself and his family out of the ghetto.

Sadly, race and ethnicity are still powerful influences over many people, so a lot of Hispanic Americans are willing to look the other way, or even applaud, while millions of people from Latin America break our laws and literally steal jobs from poor Americans. All because those invaders look like we do, and share a common ancestral culture. To folks with that attitude, I say it's time to choose sides. What matters more, America or your race? America is in the balance. Either our laws mean something, or they don't. And if they don't, what good is a Bill of Rights, and other laws written to protect our liberties? If your race and ethnic background puts you above the law, the law is worthless. When you cling to your racial and ethnic pride and identity politics, you are indirectly assaulting the rights and freedoms of everyone else.

I hope many other states, counties and municipalities will have the courage the follow Arizona's lead and enforce our laws.

Good post, John.
A friend sent this to me. I suppose it's racist or something.

Dear President Obama:

I'm planning to move my family and extended family into Mexico for my health, and I would like to ask you to assist me.

We're planning to simply walk across the border from the U.S. Into Mexico, and we'll need your help to make a few arrangements.

We plan to skip all the legal stuff like visas, passports, immigration quotas and laws. I'm sure they handle those things the same way you do here.

So, would you mind telling your buddy, President Calderon, that I'm on my way over?

Please let him know that I will be expecting the following:

1. Free medical care for my entire family.

2. English-speaking government bureaucrats for all services I might need, whether I use them or not.

3. Please print all Mexican government forms in English.

4. I want my grandkids to be taught Spanish by English-speaking (bi-lingual) teachers.

5. Tell their schools they need to include classes on American culture and history.

6. I want my grandkids to see the American flag on one of the flag poles at their school.

7. Please plan to feed my grandkids at school for both breakfast and lunch.

8. I will need a local Mexican driver's license so I can get easy access to government services.

9. I do plan to get a car and drive in Mexico , but, I don't plan to purchase car insurance, and I probably won't make any special effort to learn local traffic laws.

10. In case one of the Mexican police officers does not get the memo from their president to leave me alone, please be sure that every patrol car has at least one English- speaking officer.

11. I plan to fly the U.S. Flag from my house top, put U S. Flag decals on my car, and have a gigantic celebration on July 4th. I do not want any complaints or negative comments from the locals.

12. I would also like to have a nice job without paying any taxes, or have any labor or tax laws enforced on any business I may start.

13. Please have the president tell all the Mexican people to be extremely nice and never say critical things about me or my family, or about the strain we might place on their economy.

14. I want to receive free food stamps.

15. Naturally, I'll expect free rent subsidies.

16. I'll need Income tax credits so although I don't pay Mexican Taxes, I'll receive money from the government.

17. Please arrange it so that the Mexican Gov't pays $4,500 to help me buy a new car.

18. Oh yes, I almost forgot, please enroll me free into the Mexican Social Security program so that I'll get a monthly income in retirement.

I know this is an easy request because you already do all these things for all his people who walk over to the U.S. from Mexico. I am sure that President Calderon won't mind returning the favor if you ask him nicely.

Thank you so much for your kind help. ………….You're the man!!!
