  •  I'm ashamed of it now (9+ / 0-)

    I'm struck by how the meanest, cruelest, nastiest people brag about how they live in a Christian nation. It's rather telling.

      I do hope people realize this is not just in Arizona where this kind of shit is happening, it's everywhere. It's insidious. I am ashamed that Arizona has become one of the proving grounds for it. Governor Brewer is a huge embarrassment, and I am still angry over losing Janet Napolitano to Homeland Security, where she has not been especially effective IMO, but it left AZ very vulnerable when Brewski was elevated to the governorship, and they used it to their full advantage. But people like Kris Kobach -- the real 'brains' behind SB1070, is not from Arizona.. he just used us and the opening left by Napolitano. They are coming after the whole country though...

      So just beware... for those who condemn Arizona and would like to excise us or build a fence around us -- they are coming after you too.

        I live in Kansas, so I know what you're talking about. Our Republican legislators are such a worthless group, they cannot agree on a redistricting map, and they've got a huge majority in both houses (they barely pay attention to the Democrats).They're trying to pass tax cuts that will cost the state $750 million in revenue over the next ten years. It's basically the moderate crazies versus the real crazies.
        Oh, and Kris Kobach is our secretary of state.

          There are many states where many people suffer under republican control ... and it really bothers me that so many people here are so quick to attack an entire state and everyone who happens to live there, rather than stand with us as we try to fight back and turn things around. People hating on whole states, without any regard for the good people in those states who are harmed by the republicans in control, who are fighting them as best we can everywhere, don't help.
