Shakira And Linda Ronstadt Speak Out Against Arizona Immigration Law

Celebs Speak Out Against Arizona Law
Colombian-born Grammy winner Shakira met with police and officials in Phoenix. She said the law infringes on human and civil rights, and goes "against all human dignity."

Tucson native Linda Rondstadt said at a news conference that "Mexican-Americans are not going to take this lying down."

First, why are police officials in Phoenix taking the time to meet with a master crime fighter like Shakira? To gain her expertise? Maybe officials should look to the dignity of their citizens that need their help.

Now we find that Mexican Americans aren't going to be lying down any time soon from a different drum.

Yes, and I ain't saying you ain't pretty
All I'm saying is I'm not ready
For any person place or thing
To try and pull the reins in on me

Maybe they can get Sean Penn to travel with them to Mexico City to form a boycott or something. Or they could just sing.

A Primer On Respect For Constituents By Politicians

Last night, I attended an event in my district, and ran into a voter who lives in District 7. This person was a total asshole. Really, truly, a fantastically foul, very visible, demonstrative, to the point of other people noticing, asshole. In fact, let’s call him Mr. Asshole.

I feel the love, the respect and the trust in voters written into the above statement. Living in a Republic does allow one to see how sausage is made, but just like with elections, one shouldn't observe the process just before dining. It might cause a lack of appetite. Of course, one could just sit and hope for a dinner of observation and snappy repartee, eh?

How Stupid And Useless Is The United Nations?

So much so that it is impossible to measure. The UN is actually harmful to the planet and its inhabitants.

Without fanfare, the United Nations this week elected Iran to its Commission on the Status of Women, handing a four-year seat on the influential human rights body to a theocratic state in which stoning is enshrined in law and lashings are required for women judged "immodest."

An indication of just how bad the UN is might be their decision to award to James Earl Carter (D-Prez-Worst) its first Human Rights Prize. Another indicator might be any place in Africa that the UN stepped in to help. Oh, just pick any decision they've made. The UN is a carnival of corruptocrats.
