Lovely to Hear You Again, My Friends

It seemed like old times yesterday morning when the Armed Forces Radio Network ran a story about Federal Judge Susan Bolton derailing the most odious parts of Arizona's racist Senate Bill 1070.

AFN ran an obligatory sound bite from Governor Jan Brewer in which she cackled that the judge's ruling only amounts to a "little bump in the road." The Sand Hag, who immediately vowed to put the matter before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, may be right about this being only a minor setback, but one can always hope that it will be the critical "bump in the road" that sends this cracker clown car plunging into the Grand Canyon!

The next sound bite on the story came from Maricopa County's geriatric sheriff, Joe Arpaio. Sheriff Joe, who does not have the ability to walk by a camera or a microphone without stopping to dispense his effluence, said basically that the judge's ruling would have no impact on him because he never listens to judges anyway.

Now we can all sit back, put our feet up, crack open a beer, and wait for the Republicans to start their show. They will be going at it hammer-and tong about the evilness of activist judges whose main function in society is to thwart the will of the people. (Never mind that the people in this case are wearing bedsheets and dancing around a burning cross!) Those yahoos consider a judge who does anything that would benefit the poor or downtrodden to be activist. However, they see judges who engineer election thefts (George Bush in 2000) or give corporations the right to pour unlimited amounts of cash into the election process (Citizens United) as conscientious jurists who are just looking out for the rights of normal (rich, white) Americans.

Kudos to Judge Bolton for putting the "little bump in the road" in front of SB 1070. That is definitely a step in the right direction. But America still needs to come together and put its collective shoulder to the wheel in an effort to stop, or at least slow down, the juggernaut of rampant racism that Arizona seems to be loosing on the rest of the nation.

Boycott Arizona! Boycott Arizona and contact Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig to demand that the 2011 Baseball All-Star Game be moved to someplace more respectable, someplace where the color of one's skin does not limit their civil rights. It's time that we all stand up to the evil nonsense!

“House Bill 2013” and “SB1070”

0 = Arizona
2 = USA/ Our Constitution/ We the People of the United States

This month of July 2010, our U.S. Federal courts have found the so called State of Arizona hate filled legislation namely “House Bill 2013” and “SB1070” Un-constitution (So much for the intellect of Jan Brewer, “Did you read the bills you signed?”). But we all know that they will go crying to the Supreme Court of the United States, please, please, please go. We will fight you in Arizona, any other state, and yes in Washington DC. We will not tire, we will not be silent and we will persevere, I promise you. We are a country that is ruled by the Constitution, Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence, not by the majority of the day. When you do not know the principles in these documents, therein lays the problem in losing when you are challenged in court.

In my opinion the Republican Party has been taken over the most extreme of clans; the Baggers, Birthers and Blowhards (people who love to push their beliefs and hate on others while trying to take away the rights of those they just hate) and that’s who they need to extract from their party if they real want to win in November. Good Luck, because as they said in WACO, “We Ain’t Coming Out”.

It’s all about politics: Jan Brewer you were never elected to be Governor, but you have no problem trying to get elected on the back of undocumented workers, you loser (sure you may win but the long-term effects to your so called State is just beginning). Here is a partial list of your hate filled legislation;

1. S.B. 1070,
2. House Bill 2013
3. No permit conceal weapons law,
4. The famous Birthers law,
5. Banning Ethnic studies law,

6. Could she be behind the Mural in Prescott, Arizona, ordered to be whiten,
7. On deck to pass, no citizenship to babies born to undocumented workers,

8. If she can read she should look up Arizona’s House Bill 2779 from two years ago (which was un-constitution and failed when legally challenged),
9. The boycotted Martin Luther King Day, what idiots don’t want another holiday? Yes, you guessed it Arizona.

Well Arizona, you can keep boycotting new holidays, passing hate filled legislation and the rest of our country will continue to challenge you in court of law and Boycott your so-called state.

Lets face it, no one can real believe anything that comes out of Brewer’s mouth, in an interview, this year, in an attempt to gain sympathy, she first said her father had died in Germany fighting the Nazi in World War II (which ended 1945) but of course we find out the truth that father was never in Germany and died in California in 1955. But we are suppose to believe everything else she says, right!

As they say in the World Cup: Gooooooooal!

Hey Montana,

Great post! It's going to take lots of people like you - people with plenty of energy - to get those racist Arizona morons back in line.

If you have a blog, please share the address. If you don't, you need to start one.

Thanks for expressing your rage!

Arizona wasn't able to muster any big gun arguments in their appeal to the Ninth Circuit of Judge Bolton's order.

First they argued that she did not correctly apply legal precedent. I read her lenthy and analytical order. She nailed the law.

Secondly Arizona argues that the judge abused her descretion. Clearly the judge went through the four step test for determining whether the injunction should issue.

She made no blanket or knee jerk determinations. She actually denied the United States relief on a theory of the "Negative Commerce Clause."

Finally, Montana makes a lot of good points.
