Raising Arizona

Congratulations to the people of Arizona for having succeeded at getting their elect to pass the state's new law which adds checking suspects for US citizenship to law enforcement's brief. Of course the Beltway bien pensant and the we-know-what's-best-for-everyone mainstream media elite don't like the new statute. But with one in ten American citizens out of work our elect-elite seem awfully blasé about having swarms of illegal immigrants - invaders, to be precise - pour onto our soil to debase the coinage of US citizeship and to make of themselves and their progeny yet another burden to be borne by US taxpayers.

The new law embarrasses our Beltway elect because it gets Arizona state employees to do the job that we're supposed to have the federal Immigration & Customs Enforcement federal agency for. If ICE had been doing its, you know, Enforcement, job then Arizonans wouldn't have had to defend their state's sovereignty.

Viacom's Dhimmitude

I'm no fan of South Park because its vulgarity assaults my sensibilities (the best satire needs no help from scatology); and because the shrill puerile voices its "creative team" gives to the show's characters grates down to my marrow. Yet to Viacom, for its dhimmitudinous haste to sanitize South Park's 200th episode of all depictions and verbal references to Mohammed, I must recommed Benjamin Franklin's timeless observation:

"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety."
