I will make an honest effort to keep emotions out of this, but it's difficult as it's one of the major issues we face, and as the Dems know..let that read KNOW.. the only way they can get reelected this fall and in 2012 will be with the Hispanic vote behind them..
Reed already is trying to make that a major priority as his numbers are so low, and we all know how this is going to play out before Obarry runs in 2012.. We are going to have to face this issue.. The only question is when.
Unless you live in Phoenix you can't appreciate how much this has affected the state of AZ.. I lived in the state for 22 years before we moved to Phoenix in 1999, and could not believe the diffrence between everywhere else i had lived and Phoenix.. The first thing we did when we retired was move out of the city.. Those figures in the article above are frightening and accurate.. The PPD uses a figure of 1 K plus per week for stolen cars.. and i believe were now 4th in the nation with our murder rate..
Gloria and i are news junkies, and every evening at 5 and again at 6 we make a choice (depending on our emotional health) on watching local news, and the attending murder rate.. One sick story after another.. I've seen this for the last decade just go down hill, and honestly there's more than one day when we skip the local news as were just sick to death of whats going on..
I don't think as a moral nation that we can turn away anyone from an emergency ward.. But we sure as hell could triage them.. The idea of giving them them benefits that Cali has, that in turn has ruined that state financially is absurd..
I don't think the new bill will stand the court challenges that it will face.. Remember this will be overseen by our Nations AG.. Holder the "bold".. But i know we're at least doing something that's proactive, vs the reactive posture we've had..
I heard on CNN (i know fox was on break) yesterday that only 1/4.. think about this, only 25% of our young people can qualify for the military.. When is this Nation going to wake up.. Only half of our (total population) of HS students graduate.. What are we going to be, and what kind of a Nation will we be, when only half of our kids are graduating out of a system that's designed to LET them graduate...
Sheesh.. im a whiny ass geezer.. I really wish this was just a debate, and not the reality it is..
a man has to hold his word, hold his beliefs, and hold a good sight picture.
