'Nuff Said!

I am buried between work and assorted other nonsense and depending on the upshot of what happens with the job because of the inanity of bureaucratic b.s. I am not in a good frame of mind to say the least.

The inane law enacted in Arizona has offended the very core of what it meant to be free in this country and what many of us fought for during the years when I was growing up. I could stomp my soap box but the Pima County sheriff says it better and what follows says it all.





"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"

Do we tear down the statue that brought hope to many of our ancestors from around the globe? I think the Governor of Arizona says "YES!"

And I think she is a bigot and a traitor to the principles upon which this country was founded. I am ashamed of her and anyone who follows her lead.

Happy Blogging!!!!!!

  2. How about detaining arresting business people on "suspicion" that they are employing illegal workers? Or maybe just confiscate their Lexus.

    It never ceases to amaze me that we think that a company can operate more efficiently than a governmental body. Well...in some cases, governmental bodies have promised such generous retirement conditions/benefits that there may be a reason to think that. In general, however, when a company runs something they will make a profit.

    Just because they don't call it profit doesn't mean it isn't. "Not for profits" use "profit" to grow their organization/increase salaries/provide perks/etc.

  6. Well, if you read my blog you know what one Arizonan thinks of this mean spirited law. It's disgusting, and Jan Brewer and over half of our legislature are bigots. It is patently aimed at Hispanics.

  7. Hattie: Somehow I knew you would be with me!

    Bev: Meeeeeeeee, too!!!

    Robert: Good idea but not feasible -- these fat cats donate big bucks to certain politicians.

    John: And Hallelujah!

    M.E.: Somehow I knew we were on the same page. I ask the same question. My maternal grandparents came here at the turn if the century and settled in Wisconsin. At that time 30% of Wisconsin's population was born in Germany. LOL AND I'd be willing to bet that most of them were dairy farmers.

    CC: I think you're on to something here.

    Darlene: Yes I know how you feel and I am with you 100%!!!!!

  8. This not only goes against the sentiments of our woman with the torch, but is clearly against the express terms of out Constitution. Now I hear that some joker named Hunter has advocated for taking away citizenship of natural born children of illegal aliens. For a party of "strict constitutionalists", they certainly don't seem very well-versed in the Constitution.

  13. Lorna: Good God I hope so!!!!! Thank you!!!

    Kay: I do indeed!!! Those of us who have immigrant parents and grandmas understand very well.

    Chas: Thank you!!! I don't understand American politics amymore either which is why I rant. I have always admired the Norwegians for the wonderful courage they demonstrated during WWII.
