Illegal Immigration Circus Back in Town

Refried bean swastikas?  Protests over making it illegal to be illegal?  Boycotting an entire state?  It's getting crazy out there in Arizona!

Seems like it's illegal immigration debate season again - the circus is back in town.  Time to deal with the crazies who support ILLEGAL immigration and try to cast opponents as racists and haters of all immigrants.  (Sigh)

Sometimes the only way to stay sane is to just calm down, save your rational arguments for another day, shake your head, and enjoy the sideshow:


The furor over Arizona's new law cracking down on illegal immigrants grew Monday as opponents used refried beans to smear swastikas on the state Capitol, civil rights leaders demanded a boycott of the state, and the Obama administration weighed a possible legal challenge.

(Explain to me again why people like Obama, who's job it is to enforce the federal law which says it is illegal to be illegal, want a lawsuit against against a law that says it's illegal under state law to be in the U.S. illegally, which is already illegal under federal law?  Oh, never mind, let me go back to eating popcorn and cotton candy, watching the freak show, trying to stop my head from exploding.)

Two Stories, Two Very Different Sets of Women

Check out the juxtaposition of these two headlines on Drudge earlier today:

Female astronauts set record for most women in space at one time...

Women Push for Rights With Topless March... 

Hmmm, which one do you think does more to advance women - women putting their heads down and working hard to move ahead or women parading around showing skin?  

Women advancing science or women advancing the anti-scientific notion that men and women's bodies are the same?

The astronaut article had a perfect quote to wrap this all up with:
While their arrival will set a record for the most women in space, the historic nature of the occasion appears to have slipped under the radar at Nasa. “Maybe that’s a credit to the system, right, that I don’t think of it as male or female?” said Bill Gerstenmaier, Nasa’s associate administrator for space operations, who was unaware of the pending milestone until it was pointed out to him at a press conference.

I just think of it as a talented group of people going to do their job in space,” he said.

Little Girl Says the Emperor Has No Clothes!

I really love this picture from Daily Mail:

Ho hum, it's just the guy who forced government-run health care down our throats while ignoring his failing economy - nothing to get excited about!
