Up for Debate: Arizona immigration law undermined

Tuesday, June 26, 2012 at 12:40am

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer lashed out at the Obama administration on CNN following an announcement that the federal government would not support the enforcement of Arizona's immigration law — an announcement that followed a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that parts of that law were unconstitutional. Do you agree with the court, the administration or Brewer? Also, are you surprised the court left alone the right of police to check immigration status while enforcing other laws? Do you believe that too may be in jeopardy?

I'm curious; isn't Barack Obama going to run for re-election this year? He seems to be running awful hard already by going overseas to "collect" some campaign money. If he is, why are his attorneys telling the Florida Secretary of State he's not the Democrat party's nominee... yet? They're saying "not yet". Is he to be later? Then why refuse to file according to Florida's State law?

That's interesting: Is he, or ain't he legally eligible to run in their state? Only he knows, don't he?

Gov. Jan and the GOP are shooting themselves in the foot and they do not even know it. The GOP has sat back and let the Tea Party take over their party, and they can't think of anyway to get it back. The GOP wants the illegals gone, but when their crops and other nasty jobs are not done, they want them bac k. It depends on their pocketbooks. I wish to say here that Mitt does not have anything that would qualify him to be president. He sways with the wind.

Because he's not the Democrat nominee yet, twit.

Once again, it does not matter what the law of the land states. The Obama administration will ignore and not enforce Federal laws. Politicians at the Local, State, and Federal level will push our Country into another uncivil war.

But Please remember who brought us the Patriot act. Pres. Bush, written by Joe Biden. There was a loss of freedom!
Oh and that was of course all of Bill Clinton's fault because he did not have the balls to pull the trigger on Osama Bin Laden on the 10 occassions he had a chance to kill him.

PLEASE tell us what freedoms you have lost, PLEASE tell us what you CANNOT do now that you could 3, 4 or even 5 years ago.

And I heard that it was 20 times!

If you could just read, Loner, you would notice I stated I had read the list. No, I'm not "speaking" for myself, I'm just passing the word along.

But it seems there's a group on this site that loves having a person sit in our President's chair illegally. I don't. The only thing I've asked for is proof he is who he says he is. Neither he, nor you, can do it.

So you think your way and please permit me to think mine, because I'm going to think mine whether anyone likes it or not, just like I don't like some of the things you're posting, but I haven't griped to you about it.

So, what makes you think I should like what you say about something I disapprove of? You know, like your rantings against Israel?

When Bush wire-tapped international calls to bin Laden only terrorists died.

gdiafarte,

If Barry isn't the Democratic nominee yet, why is he running around for campaign money? Whey has he went to foreign nations for campaign money? Why is he asking for your birthday presents in cash... to him for re-election? Hell, he's even asking for idiots wedding presents as a gift for himself. I imagine because he thinks it will take billions to finally decide to accept the Democrat Party's nomination.

Whadda you think? Is he gonna run?

When Obama and Holder sent guns to the Mexican Cartels hundreds of Mexican nationals and a Boarder Patrol agent died.

To make you crazier than you already are, if that's possible!

It seems quite possible, but more, it is ENTERTAINING!

That was a pretty lame 4:20 yogi. The Choom Gang won't be proud.

Joe Biden gave us the Patriot Act?

No, it was primarily Joe Lieberman who gave us the Patriot Act.....largely written by AIPAC and the Israel lobby, the thing was written, printed, collated and bound...ready for distribution before the 9-11 fires were fully extinguished....the haste created waste.....thousands killed....billions wasted in a futile attempt to deal with symptoms, while ignoring the causes.

What, it is just religion, no big deal, right?

By: yogiman on 6/26/12 at 4:08

Sorry, bfra, but I can't match you. I'm trying, though. Gimme time, I might catch up.

By: yogiman on 6/26/12 at 4:13

Lame in what way, BenDover? I thought I was being pretty straight forward.

By: Loner on 6/26/12 at 4:17

There;s a bit more to it than that, Revo.

Islamic terrorism is the effect...the symptom...the cause is rooted in the US-Israel "Special Relationship", and deadly US meddling in the internal affairs of governments in the volatile region. US taxpayers bankroll the people's oppressors....it's just that simple.

9-11 was part of the price for bankrolling the interests of the Defense, Israel & Energy lobbies....the US media has done a great job of keeping the causes off the radar screen....all we get to see and hear about are the symptoms of the disease.

The mainstream US media never address the real causes for the animosity that millions feel towards the USA....and Congress never talks about it either....the federal lawmakers are all on the take to those three powerful lobbies.

The troll is not hip to 4:20, Ben...he hit it by accident...just like his earlier witty remark about "ridicule". Even a stopped clock is accurate twice a day.

By: dargent7 on 6/26/12 at 6:47

And guess what "yogi"...Bush & Co. totally colluded, conspired, and executed a 100% falsified war on another soveriegn country: Iraq.
Killing 4,400 US service men and women and thousands of innocent Iraqi's.
And all you A-holes care about is Obama's golf score and handicap.
People, just like you, is why America is in the shitter.

By: parnell3rd on 6/26/12 at 10:03

Yea dargent7, Bush had to get permission from republican and democrates in the house and senate. How convienient it is to forget the facts for all of us.
Revo-lou
Lets see, how about go about my day without being video tapped, how about not having our phone conversations recorded by the NSA, oh let's see, how about the US Gov't giving facebook, facial reconigtion technoligy. Hmmmm anybody else got any?
Oh yea and the ever present TSA that is now going to be in train and bus stations. How many terrorist have the TSA stopped? Zero!
And we better not talk badly of known Mooslim terrorsit right here in middle Tennesse, because the US attorney general will not stand for it!
