An Elegant Solution

Tags: , , , , , , ,

Everybody knows the insanity of governor Jan Brewer’s suicidal* new law that basically gives Arizona police not only the right but the responsibility to demand citizenship papers of anyone they suspect may be illegal immigrants (read: All Latinos). Duncan Hunter, republican congressman from California, suggests they go one further and deport children of illegal immigrants born in the United States, despite being legal US citizens themselves.

I suggest a simple, elegant solution to the Wehrmacht surreality of Arizona: Give the state back to Mexico. It solves so many problems:

For starters, it was Mexico’s to begin with. The Latino population has more historical right to be there than their Caucasian counterparts.

Then, it rids America of a large swath of radical assault rifle-toting vigilantes (and ASU graduates), who will soon find that the Mexican Policia Federale are somewhat less forgiving, not to mention an end to the political scene that gave us John McCain and Barry Goldwater.

It’s perfect!

*Alienating Latinos, a third of the state’s voting population, is a brilliant idea for the GOP, especially since they can’t get Black votes either.

This and That

Tags: , , , , , ,

There could be a rant about the counterproductive methods of Critical Mass, the Bike Clown Posse or cyclist activists in general (who are, to a man, all nutcases above and beyond their pedestrian counterparts).

There could also be an insinuation that such is far too limiting a subject when Mexico’s declared an actual war on drugs (with actual fighting) or how Pakistan’s imploding, but without focus the blog would lose its voice.

There could thus be a rant about alternative school methods – Charters and other public funding of private education – and how they work in the political short term but fail to address the problem of universal public eduation as a whole.

But right now there’ll be a nod to a general malaise over lack of focus at work, as handily illustrated by this comic from Subnormality.

Or this.
