Oh Arizona!

I keep seeing headlines like these:

Arizona now has toughest immigration law state

Bill McCollum (R) Defends Change In Stance On AZ Law

and now I see this:

Arizona gov. signs bill targeting ethnic studies in an AP News story.

Well, I can’t just not say anything can I?  You know me better than that.

Gov. Jan Brewer has signed a bill that Tom Horne (Az State School Head) has been pushing for for years.  Horne has said, well… let me quote the AP article:

Horne, a Republican running for attorney general, said the program promotes “ethnic chauvinism” and racial resentment toward whites while segregating students by race.

Tom Horne is sacred that ethnic studies classes will educate minorities and make life harder for whites?  Holy Shit!  Where is his clan robe?  Look, I live in Mississippi, I know a racist when I see or hear one.  Tom Horne…you qualify!  Can this man really advocate for the removal of the classes that teach the TRUE history of 56% of the Tuscon SD students’ ancestry?  By the way, that’s 31,000 students in the Tuscon School Dist alone.  Staggering.

Now I will give you something I found that will blow your mind:

Golden Rule Citizens Nomination Form
As a Golden Rule state, I am pleased to present a program that positively recognizes those who “treat others the way you would like to be treated” and who make a difference in Arizona. By using the form below, you can nominate an Arizona resident as an Arizona Golden Rule Citizen! Please nominate people who practice the Golden Rule and my office will mail you an Arizona Golden Rule Citizen Certificate that you can present to the person whom you nominated.

Feel free to contact my office for more information.

JANICE K. BREWER
Arizona Governor

I found this hypocrisy on the Governor’s own website! I can safely assume ole Jan and Tom will not be getting a nomination anytime soon!  If this theory of the golden rule is carried out they way it should be and she is treating people the way she wants to be treated then European History should be shut down.  They both look vaguely European.  Maybe they need to show some papers.  WAIT WAIT WAIT…they are white.  OBVIOUSLY AMERICAN!

That sounds ludicrous dosen’t it.  Well, you gonna play hard ball…then play hard ball.  I can’t believe I live in this country sometimes.  I am ashamed of it on, what seems like, a growing number of fronts.

I never thought Mississippi would be more tolerant than another state esp. a western state.  UNREAL!

News Flash: Republican’s hate the Poor (and minorities)

What a novel thought...

Below is an article written by Sam Stein, a political blogger.  You can read the original posting here.  I am not going to expound on what this article expresses until you read it for yourself.  I will let you draw your own conclusions and my comments will follow.  However, I will highlight my favorite parts of it, so you can easily predict what is currently pissing me off. (HINT: RED = BAD )

Venting: A Geographical Focus

I am not going to complain about the people here.  I am not going to complain about the culture here.  I am not going to complain about anything that I could potentially do anything about.  I AM going to complain about how I am bombarded by things that I would hope most of this country is not subjected to.  Here are  some of the scenarios that aggravate me the most.

Oh, Glenn…

Beck: ‘African-American is a bogus, PC, made-up term. I mean, that’s not a race.’

By: Ben Armbruster

Today on his radio show, Glenn Beck wanted to discuss the census. “Apparently the census has come out,” he said. Beck’s co-host then chimed in, “Yeah and there’s a little confusion because there’s three boxes you can check if you’re a certain race. … I don’t know what the race is because there’s three different terms for them. Black, African-American, or Negro.” Instead of having any consideration to take issue with the term “Negro,” Beck launched into a tirade against “African-American”:

BECK: African-American is a bogus, PC, made-up term. I mean, that’s not a race. Your ancestry is from Africa and now you live in America. Ok so you were brought over — either your family was brought over through the slave trade or you were born here and your family emigrated here or whatever but that is not a race.

Previously, Beck has said that he doesn’t have “a lot of African-American friends, and I think part of it is because I’m afraid that I would be in an open conversation, and I would say something that somebody would take wrong, and then it would be a nightmare.” And recently on his Fox News program, Beck hosted a group of black conservatives and complained that some of them refer to themselves as “African-American.” “Why not identify yourself as Americans?” he asked, adding, “I don’t identify myself as white, or a white American.”
