One More Thought On Arizona

So the core problem here is that some of the residents of Arizona think Arizona has too many Messicans!

Keep in mind that the majority of Arizona residents aren't from Arizona. They retired there from somewhere else.

Maybe, just maybe, (thinking outside the box here) the reason that Arizona has so many Mexicans is because ARIZONA USED TO BE PART OF MEXICO!!! We stole it at the barrel of a whole lot of guns during the Mexican-American War in 1848!

As the descendants of the original residents are fond of saying, "We didn't come to America! America came to us!"

It reminds me of when my dad and step-mom returned from their first trip to Hawaii and complained that the trip was spoiled by all the foreigners there, i.e. native Hawaiians, Polynesians, Asians, ya know PEOPLE WHO LIVE IN MIDDLE OF THE FUCKING PACIFIC OCEAN! Not exactly a traditional Anglo-Saxon/Nordic homeland! That's because we stole Hawaii too!

At least we bought Alaska fair and square from those dumb Rooskies! But to their credit, compared to Siberia, Alaska looked like a hard to access Rhode Island to them and they probably figured they were getting the better part of the deal by unloading it on us.

Does no one else think it's odd that we have 2 states that we can't get to without going through a whole lot of Canada or a whole lot of ocean?

But I digress.

Here's a simple Rule of Thumb to remember.

If you invade someone else's land, steal it and call it your own, don't bitch and whine about having a large contigent of native inhabitants who not only refuse to leave but continue to invite their friends and relatives to come and visit.

Get the fuck over it.

It's easy to play armchair politician on this because we don't live in a border state and we don't see the issue firsthand. This obviously is a passionate issue for those who live in Arizona, and they are finally striking out after being pushed too far, even if it is blindly. To say all illegals are bad is like saying all pitbulls are bad. It only takes one to ruin it for everyone else. Most folks who cross over do so to make an ernest living for their family, but there are ones (like those who killed the rancher that ignited the anger over illegals in the first place) who come here just to be assholes.

I can speak from some experience having lived in a heavy agriculture centered Nebraska. Every summer, kids had to keep their evening outdoor actvities to a minimum as the "illegals" would arrive en masse, and some kids would eventually get targeted. Not all the migrant workers were bad, but it only took a few to frighten the parents.

I'm not saying I approve of the legislation, but I do understand where it comes from.

EXCUSE ME!!! Mexico surrendered AZ and CA to us after a fair war and we STILL gave them over $81 million for the land (1848!) Try to get your facts straight before you begin pandering to the CRIMINALS. Most are here illegally.

Just look at this, especially the video. They call in a swat team in full riot gear to protect Obama from a few white haired ladies and they won't protect our borders. Just what is going on in this country anyhow? There is no excuse for this. It looks like a friggin police state.
