The Federal Government: The Feds have their fingers in just about every pie now, and the sticky residue is beginning to be felt on the flesh of every American. Never mind the fact that we have boots on the ground in foreign lands, trying to defend our freedoms...what seems to matter is nothing short of expansion of scope and reach of the federal government. This is an election year and the cocky majority in Washington is about to get their hands slapped by the American voter. The sad thing is that like Republican majorities before, they still don't "get it." But they are about to.

Illegal Immigration Laughs: Arizona passes sweeping illegal immigration regulations and of course, the Obama Administration has criticized it, implying that it may not meet Constitutional muster. Well, that is yet to be seen but there is an interesting quote in the Washington Post that pretty much says it all, and underscores, in my opinion, why we need it.
"It's going to change our lives," said Emilio Almodovar, a 13-year-old American citizen from Phoenix. "We can't walk to school any more. We can't be in the streets anymore without the pigs thinking we're illegal immigrants.""Pigs." Law enforcement are "pigs." A throw-back to the 1960's anti-war movement, a 13 year-old kid calls the police "pigs." Personally, I believe that now is the time for the 14th Amendment to be clarified and the whole concept of birthright citizenship to be challenged. Parents to children who are born in the United States but who are illegal immigrants are hardly "subject to the jurisdiction thereof." A good example of this is when Governor Henry sent a Mexican citizen back to Mexico who was supposed to fact the death penalty for crimes here in the United States.
Waiting For the Other Shoe To Drop: There have been rumors upon rumors that public safety is about to take a major hit in Central Oklahoma, but it appears as though those rumors were far less than substantive. Which is why it's important to check sources, to ensure the information is reliable and that perhaps someone doesn't have an agenda in spreading said rumors.
I am sure there will be more later on today...keep checking back!
