Jan Brewer’s Big Weekend

While the state known as Arizona seethed and Latino parents fell on their knees with Rosaries in hand to pray for the future of their children Governor Jan Brewer went out for a tony dinner with gal pal and media made millionaire Sarah Palin. So happy was Brewer about her night out that she posted it on her Facebook page. It seems that after a week of “agonizing” over her decision to make Latinos the subject of racial profiling she needed a night out to blow off the steam. I guess creating wholesale big government discrimination made her hungry.

While 1070 is certainly a huge unprecedented step it the fascist direction Jan Brewer has more in common with Nero than Hitler. The night after her dinner with millionaire Palin, they both went to a Diamondbacks baseball game and bragged about it on Facebook as well. Who cares if the next generation of Arizona voters are meeting en masse in cyberspace and on the State House grounds planning wholesale economic havoc for her state? Brewer needed a big meal and a ball game.

We now can only come to a conclusion that Brewer didn’t agonize much over turning her State into a national disgrace, a late night joke, and a business pariah. If Brewer did agonize over her decision, she recovered remarkably well.

While Brewer celebrated all weekend with Palin other governors and big city mayors met with advisors to plan on how to benefit from the huge boycott that is already forming against the Grand Canyon State. Brewer however had finished her state business and needed to let loose. As Cyndi Lauper would say: sometimes girls just wanna have fun!

Weekends are great but the work week always follows, and today is Monday. For brown-skinned Arizonans, today is a day to worry about a law that officially marginalizes them. Today for fair minded Arizonans of all races and ethnicities is a day of shame and regret. Today for Jan Brewer is a day to get over the effects of a weekend filled with rich food, strong sun,and boisterous game. Today is the day she faces the enormous mess that she has created. Want an Alka-Seltzer Jan?

    Mario: Obama is the reason Jan is the Governor. For some reason he and his cronies put Napolitano in charge of DHS letting Brewer rise to Gov. position! Typical “post-partisan” Democratic Administration.

    As for comments:

    Immigration and economics: repeated studies have shown immigrants add significantly to local economies and actually pay more in taxes than they get in services.

    Drug cartels: Prohibition is the major reason that drug cartels (and the banks that launder their money) are wealthy and powerful. The U.S. should stop Plan Mexico/Merida Initiative, which provides lethal aid and surveillance capacity to the corrutp and brutal Mexican security forces. This – and repealing “Free Trade” agreements – would likely result in real safety and security in Mexico, Latin America and the Caribbean thereby allowing people there real choices instead of fleeing thousands of miles from their homes to live and work.

    Arizona can pass race base laws, pass Birthers laws, pass no permit conceal weapons laws and the state boycotted Martin Luther King Day, well the rest of the Country can boycott the state of Arizona and spank them where it hurts them the most their pocket book. Their phony patriotism is sickening, they are just racists going by another name. We all know you are just itching to put a sheet on their head? Let’s face it the Republicans had eight years to deal with health care, immigration, climate change and financial oversight and governance and they failed. It appears that the Republican Party is only good at starting wars (two in eight years, with fat contracts to friends of Cheney/Bush) but not at winning wars as seen by the continuing line of body bags that keep coming home. The Republicans party will continue turned inward to their old fashion obstructionist party (and their Confederacy appreciation roots) because they continue to allow a small portions (but very loud portion) of their party of “birthers, baggers and blowhards” to rule their party. I will admit that this fringe is very good at playing “Follow the Leader” by listening to their dullard leaders, Beck, Hedgecock, Hannity, O’Reilly, Rush, Savage, Sarah Bailin, Orly Taitz, Victoria Jackson, Michele Bachmann and the rest of the Blowhards and acting as ill programmed robots (they have already acted against doctors that perform abortions). The Birthers and the Tea party crowd think they can scare, intimidate and force others to go along with them by comments like “This time we came unarmed”, let me tell you something not all ex-military join the fringe militia crazies who don’t pay taxes and run around with face paint in the parks playing commando, the majority are mature and understand that the world is more complicated and grey than the black and white that these simpleton make it out to be and that my friend is the point. The world is complicated and people like Hamilton, Lincoln, and Roosevelt believed that we should use government a little to increase social mobility, now it’s about dancing around the claim of government is the problem. The sainted Reagan passed the biggest tax increase in American history and as a result federal employment increased, but facts are lost when mired in mysticism and superstition. For a party that gave us Abraham Lincoln, it is tragic that the ranks are filled with too many empty suits and the crazy Birthers who have not learned that the way our courts work is that you get a competent lawyer, verifiable facts and present them to a judge, if the facts are real and not half baked internet lies, then, and only then, do you proceed to trial. The Birthers seem to be having a problem with their so called “facts”. Let’s face it no one will take the Birthers seriously until they win a case, but until then, you will continue to appear dumb, crazy or racist, or maybe all three. I heard that Orly Taitz now wants to investigate the “Republican 2009 Summer of Love” list: Assemblyman, Michael D. Duvall (CA), Senator John Ensign (NV), Senator Paul Stanley (TN), Governor Mark Stanford (SC), Board of Ed Chair, and Kristin Maguire AKA Bridget Keeney (SC), she wants to re-establish a family values party, that’s like saying that the Catholic Church cares about the welling being of children in their care, too late for that.

    So I guess you rather let them continue to come across the border killing people, kidnapping people, taking American jobs, the Drug Cartel bringing & selling their drugs here & using our hospitals, doctors, nurses & in not so long we are going to be getting crappy health care because of this tax bill called a health care bill that we will pay for for 10 years to receive 6 years of rationed, government run health care to see how many of us our still fortunate enough to stay standing because we know the older, more ill people will be ignored & die. Why don’t you just move down there with them where the Drug Cartel is allowed to run rampant, the so called police have been crooks for years & years & we have to put up with them coming across the border to help Obama to destroy us? Homeland Security Janet Napolitano has no idea how serious it got & she has no idea how to handle it. She & the rest should all be fired because all they are doing is spending time entertaining Muslims who were not suppose to be allowed in this country. Then they uninvited Rev. Franklin Graham to National Prayer Day which Obama ignored last year. He claims he is putting a freeze on spending but he needs to cut out most of his expenses, like maybe the Czars & their payroll, cut Congress & the Senate payroll & cut taxes not add to it. Stop with this cap & trade which we cannot afford & get the EPA & Big Government out of our lives. That is doing something. The wrong people are getting blamed for Wall Street. The blame should be put on SEC (who instead of doing their jobs were watching 8 hours or more of porn & downloading), & also, the blame is on Congress who instead of regulating Fannie & Freddie just kept telling them to make loans to people that could not afford them; like Franks (who was having an affair with one of the guys that worked their) Waters, & the others who said back in 2005 & 2006 they could see nothing wrong. I would like them to stand & admit their wrong doing in this but that would be a joke. I, also, think the Feds are trying to bring in more votes through letting in the illegals that are killing & kidnapping & destroying our rights.

    Thank god some state finally had the courage to do what our federal government refuses to do.
    Whatever Arizona losses in revenue from any boycott will be small in comparison to what they will save not having to support all the Illegal Aliens.
    The Illegal’s are nothing but a drain on our resources all I can say is “Its about time!”
    We need another operation wetback like Eisenhower did in the fifties.
