Factcheck: SB 1070 allows for some racial profiling

Factcheck.org examines Arizona's SB 1070 and finds that it's not just a mirror image of federal law, and allows some profiling. But, in theory, no more than what the courts permit already.... Read more»

How did we manage to elect so many crackers to state government? It boggles the mind. After all, we have a fine university system, and a fair number of private and community colleges, each of which graduates large numbers of people every year. The first priority, it seems, therefore, is to repopulate the state government with smart, literate, people. Smart people—only smart people, we may need a test—need to be encouraged to run for office in the interest of restoring sanity and intelligence, grace and civility, forward thinking and decency to this great state. Is that elitist? Why? Why should I have to suffer the indignity and shame of residing in a state governed by stupid people?

The real reason that illegal immigration exists in the United States of America is that the government and corporations want it.  It is part of the strategy to “Divide and Conquer” and stay in power.

In the 60s, the average American started taking a good, hard look at what our government and corporations were doing.  Americans finally started to wake up from our long slumber, and when we did, we were appalled at what we saw.  We started to unite; it did not mater if one was white, brown, black, red, or yellow, we were all Americans.  We had a common enemy, the corrupt:  entrenched bureaucrats, professional politicians, and corporations.  They saw the writing on the wall, the days of “business as usual” were numbered. 
To combat this new awakening in the American public, the strategy bureaucrats, politicians, and corporations adopted was a three-pronged attack: mass immigration, legal and illegal; introducing the concept of multiculturalism; and creating the mechanism to fund legal challenges to any attempt by the American people regain control.
Up until the mid 60s, the United States of America had a conservative immigration policy that allowed approximately 100,000 to 200,000 foreign nationals a year into the U.S.  Then it was changed.  Over a million foreign nationals a year were allowed to enter the U.S. legally and illegally.  There are now approximately 11 million foreign nationals illegally in the U.S.  This demonstrates that illegal immigration is condoned, and is even rewarded by the government through social programs and amnesty.  The new immigrants were encouraged to settle in separate communities, and retain their culture and language, discouraging assimilation into American culture and any attempts to define themselves as simply “American”.

The birth of multiculturalism was the next part of the attack on American solidarity.  Ethnic studies was introduced on campuses and schools around the country, and later became a mandatory class.  Ethnic studies evolved into ethnic clubs, and later departments based on race, e.g. Black studies, Latino studies, etc.  Ethnic studies gave birth to a quasi-nationalism based on race.  The hyphenated American was born.  This created further conflict and division among the American people.

The final prong of this attack was the use of foundations, e.g., the Ford Foundation, etc. to funnel money from corporations to special interest groups, e.g., MEChA, La Raza, and their variants.  These in turn fund special interest law firms, e.g., MALDEF, to challenge any attempt by the American citizen to regain control of our country.  The American citizens have repeatedly: introduced legislation, e.g. prop 187, SB 1070, etc, voted on it, and had it overwhelmingly approved by the voters, only to have these special interest law firms challenge the legislation, tie it up in the courts, then have it struck down by a judge with a political agenda.  The final insult happened when the elected officials failed to appeal that lower court decision and fight to have the will of the people protected, as they are required by law to do.

The idea of “Divide and Conquer” has been used throughout history to consolidate and retain power, and it is an act of war against the American people, of all colors.  It has created strife and division among the American people, and preventing them from presenting a unified front and wresting power from the current establishment.  The corrupt:  bureaucrats, politicians, and corporations, are still in charge.

User Guidelines

Please be respectful and relevant. Thought-provoking. Or at least funny.

We want comments to advance the discussion and we need your help. Debate, disagree, yell (digitally) or laugh, but do it with respect.

We won't censor your comments if we don't agree with you; we want viewpoints from across the political spectrum. We're dedicated to sparking an open, active discussion. We believe people with differing opinions can spark debate and effect change.

Comments are open to registered users of TucsonSentinel.com.

Keep in mind:

  • A conversation involves sharing and respect. Support your viewpoint with facts, not attacks.
  • Ask questions. Search out answers.
  • Remember that being part of a community requires tolerance for differing views.
  • We can't ensure that all comments are based in truth. The only comments we endorse are those we write ourselves.

TucsonSentinel.com does not allow:

  • Hate speech. Blatantly racist, sexist or homophobic slurs or calls for violence against a particular type of person, etc. will be removed.
  • Obscenity & excessive cursing. Sometimes a well-placed curse word - if you're creative enough to get it past our auto-censor - can express your point in just the right way. But we say '%*$& no' to cursing for cursing's sake. And lose the explicit sexually-descriptive language. It doesn't contribute to the debate and there are plenty of other places on the Internet to find it.
  • Flaming. During a heated discussion, unkind words may be spoken. We can live with a certain amount of rudeness in the name of provocative conversation, but a pattern of personal attacks (name-calling, mocking, or baiting) is not acceptable nor are threatening or harassing comments. Show some respect, please.
  • Explicit political endorsements. As a nonprofit we can't allow electioneering. Analysis and explanation of political issues and candidates are encouraged, but specific calls to vote for or against a measure or politician should be done elsewhere.
  • Spam. Solicitation of products or services isn't allowed; contact us about advertising, we'd love to talk to you. Links to off-topic sites may be deleted.
  • Copyright or IP infringement. Lengthy quotes and violations of 'Fair Use' aren't allowed. Anything you post should be your own work.
  • Overposting. Don't bore people and waste electrons with identical comments on multiple stories or repetitive comments that don't advance a conversation.
  • Trolling, sockpuppetry, and other abusive behavior. Please don't feed the trolls and don't pretend to be someone you're not.
  • Gossip. Don't bring up others who can't defend themselves. We don't give out personal information; you shouldn't either.

Comments that violate these guidelines may be removed. We reserve the right to make up the rules as we go along.

Flagging

Commentors are solely responsible for the opinions they express and the accuracy of the information they provide. Users who violate these standards may lose their privileges on TucsonSentinel.com.

Sentinel editors can't read every comment. Trolls, spammers and other troublemakers can slide under the bridge. We rely on you to help maintain a healthy conversation - more than likely, you're reading these comments before the editors.

What if you see something inappropriate? Use the 'Flag' button to send it to a moderation queue. Help us out and tell us why you're reporting it; please don't report someone just because you disagree with them. Boy who cried wolf and all that. We'll take appropriate action on violations.

We will not edit comments to alter their meaning or censor comments because of political content.

We will not remove comments solely because they are heartless, cruel, coarse, foolish or just plain wrong. Your disapproval can maintain a decent signal to noise ratio. Ultimately, however, self-policing is the best method.

Bottom line, don't be a jerk.
