In the absence of any real border enforcement by Fedzilla and after the emergency of the recent murder of rancher Robert Krentz, Arizonans rightfully took matters into their own hands and passed a law allowing Arizona cops to demand immigration papers from people they stop.
Good for Arizona. Other states, especially border states, should follow its lead. In short, Arizona’s new law makes it a crime to be in Arizona illegally. It’s 2010 – Good morning, America! Those people who can’t produce documentation proving they are in the country legally can be jailed up to six months and fined $2,500.
Of course, the pro-illegal-immigration crowd is going berserk that Arizona has done such a common-sense thing. These Democratic numskulls see any immigration reform measures that seek to protect our border as a threat to their future political base. You would have to be deaf, dumb and blind not to see that the grand plan of the Democrats is to entrap illegal immigrants by giving them legal status and then enslave and destroy them with numerous Fedzilla handouts and programs.
Pro-illegal-immigration weasels are protesting and yammering that this new law will lead to profiling. President Obama has weighed in and asked the Justice Department to review Arizona’s new law to see if it is legal.
Unbelievably, while our borders are largely open and being overrun, the Obama administration recently lectured Israel about expanding its communities just a few feet on land that arguably is its to expand upon.
While I applaud Arizona for its bold and brave new law, putting illegals in jail is the wrong move. That costs too much. I say Arizona should follow its own American hero, Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County.
Sheriff Arpaio keeps crooks in a large outdoor holding facility and makes them sleep in tents. Among other things, he feeds them bologna sandwiches. I hope they are not fresh.
My good friend Sheriff Arpaio’s common-sense policies and practices drive the American Civil Liberties Union and other leftist numskulls batty. He puts smiles on the faces of Americans who still believe that pragmatism and common sense should rule the day.
Indeed, something needs to be done about illegal immigration and the 12 million to 15 million illegals who already are in America and causing a tremendous financial burden on states because of their abuse of the states’ social services and criminal justice programs. Hospitals in California and other states have closed, and jails and prisons in border states are upward of 40 percent full of illegals.
The invasion roils on.
Hospitals and social-service agencies should follow Arizona’s lead and require that those seeking services provide proof of legal residence. American taxpayers should not be required to pay for providing medical or any other services to illegal immigrants. Making us do so is the ultimate definition of insanity.
What America shouldn’t do is continue to ignore the protection of our borders. There is a growing sentiment among governors of border states that we should call out the National Guard to help secure our borders. Makes sense to me.
Both Republicans and Democrats have made immigration blunders in the past. We should learn from those mistakes and endeavor not to make the same mistakes again.
I support an open, frank and transparent debate on immigration. Let’s lay all the cards on the table and hear from all sides. I say we start with a simple admonition from President Reagan: A nation without borders will soon cease to be a nation.
Good for Arizona. It is refreshing to see that common sense still rules the day somewhere.

Yes it is defiantly the yodel in this song that grabs you, even if it shocks or even amuses you at first, it will entrance you to listen. What a great song. If you want to hear the whole thing, scroll down a little and it is on the black BOX on the left. Happy Birthday Hank Williams Sr. September 17, 1923 to January 1, 1953. Thanks to Gatorrocks786 for a very good video.
Red Skelton was born July 18, 1913 and died on this day September 17, 1997, He was a very funny comedian but he is being very serious about our Pledge of Allegiance. He would be very disappointed in the way we have let the lunatic left take over our Country. So much so that it now owns the Democratic Party, as we have seen from the Democratic Presidential candidates refusal to denounce the sick ad by moveon.org, which attacked the Honor of a four star General, Gen David Petraeus, for no other purpose than politics. You people do nothing but weaken our Great Nation! Thanks to ImgnNoLibs for the video.
Thanks to Dreamer2TV for the LeAnn Rimes video.
President James Madison and his wife Dolly barely escaped to safety as the British set the President’s Manson, the Capitol and other public buildings ablaze as they captured Washington in 1814, even though they were out numbered two to one by the Americans. The British had also captured a Dr. William Beanes who happened to be a friend of Mr. Frances Scott Key a Georgetown lawyer, husband and father of six boys and five girls. Mr. Key and John S. Skinner, a US Government agent went to the British forces in Chesapeake to deal for the release of Dr. Beanes, they explained to the British Officers that the doctor had saved wounded British solders lives. The British agreed to the release of Dr. Beanes but detained the three men on a ship until after their planned attack on Baltimore, America’s third largest city at that time. Having planned a joint attack by land and water, the British General Ross and his troops landed in Maryland and soon ran into the American front forces, where British General Ross would meet his demise by the bullet of a sharp shooter. The British forces having under estimated the strength of the Americans, pulled back to wait for the cover of darkness for their next attack on the evening of September 13, 1814. Meanwhile the British navy had made its way to a position to attack Fort McHenry, that same morning September 13, at 6:30 am the British Admiral Cochrane’s ships, with Mr. Key aboard, began its attack. For twenty-four hours the British rained down ten and thirteen inch bombshells and rockets that burst into flames and fell on Fort McHenry and her defenders, who were too far out of range to return fire. When the British ships moved closer, the Americans gained their range and damaged the British ships so badly it forced them to pull back. The Americans held the powerful British Navy off all night and at 7:30 on the morning of September 14, the British Admiral Cochrane called off the attack, and this was one of the main turning points in the War of 1812.
In June of 1813 Mary Pickersgill was commissioned by Major George Armistead to sew two flags for Fort McHenry. The first flag measured 17 feet by 25 feet and since it was a stormy day on September 13, 1814 this was the flag that was flying over Fort McHenry during the raging battle between the British Fleet and Fort McHenry. At dawn, the morning of September 14, 1814 as the British began to retreat, Major Armistead ordered his men to raise the larger flag that Mary Pickersgill and her daughter, two nieces, and an indentured African American girl had sewn. This flag is “The Star Spangled Banner,” that inspired Mr. Frances Scott Key to write his poem that would later become our national anthem. This Flag measured a huge thirty feet by forty-two feet wide, the modern garrison flags used today by the United States Army only measure 20 by 38 feet. The flag is about the equivalent of a quarter the size of a basketball court. The fifteen stars are each a massive two foot wide from point to point and each or the fifteen strips measure two feet wide. The flag was made out of English wool and the stars are cotton.
Every time I hear this song it chokes me up because I love this country so much. It is truly the best Country in the world. I dedicate this post not only to the American forces fighting for our Freedom but for all men and women who acknowledge the danger and fight this fight. May The Almighty God Bless you all and keep you safe. The song we sing as our national anthem is usually sung with only the first part or verse. Here is the whole poem by Frances Scott Key.
O say, can you see, by the dawn’s early light,
What so proudly we hailed at the twilight’s last gleaming,
Whose broad stripes and bright stars, through the perilous fight
O’er the ramparts we watched, were so gallantly streaming?
And the rockets’ red glare, the bombs bursting in air
Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there;
O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave?
On the shore, dimly seen thro’ the mist of the deep,
Where the foe’s haughty host in dread silence reposes,
What is that which the breeze, o’er the towering steep,
As it fitfully blows, half conceals, half discloses?
Now it catches the gleam of the morning’s first beam,
In full glory reflected, now shines on the stream
’Tis the star-spangled banner. Oh! long may it wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave!
And where is that band who so vauntingly swore
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a country should leave us no more?
Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Oh! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand
Between their loved homes and the war’s desolation,
Blest with vict’ry and peace, may the Heav’n-rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation!
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: “In God is our Trust”
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.

I know the anniversary of September 11 is always a hard day for America and much of the world. I know it is much more difficult for the people who have lost a loved one and some will never see this day without a tear in their eye. It is a fragile line to walk to say that there is good that came from such an evil act but we all witnessed the courage of the brave men and women who gave of themselves, body and heart. The out pouring of gifts and donations to help people more hurt than ourselves was truly amazing. The story that keeps coming back to my memory even between the anniversaries of Sept. 11, is about the Maasai people in Kenya and Tanzania. These people are literally “dirt poor” and they gave their most prized and treasured gift, a gift that sustains their very lives. They gave fourteen cattle, now at first thought that doesn’t seem like a big thing to you or I, but to the Maasai people cattle are everything. They themselves do not live on the beef of these cows, except for an occasional ceremony, they live on the blood mixed with milk taken from these cattle. To the Maasia, Cattle represent not only wealth but are spiritually respected as well. The Maasai elders deemed the fourteen cattle and their offspring to be sacred and will never be eaten or given away. They now graze on a farm near the village of Enoosaen as a permanent tribute to the people who lost their lives on September 11, 2001.
This story always reminds me of what Jesus said about the poor widow in Luke Chap 21 Verse 1 thru 4: “And he looked up, and saw the rich men casting their gifts into the treasury. And he saw also a certain poor widow casting in thither two mites. And he said, Of a truth I say unto you, that this poor widow hath cast in more than they all: For all these have of their abundance cast in unto the offerings of God: but she of her penury hath cast in all the living that she had.”
May God Bless the families of the victims of September 11, 2001
