  • Charles, as I watch the news I find it extremely odd that Attorney General Holder, the Homeland Security Secretary, and many others in the administration openly admit they haven't read the Arizona Immigration law, but yet they choose to say it's un-constitutional. They make themselves look foolish.

    As for our president's America Apologizes tour, As I see it (my opinion only) we are THE greatest country in the world. Nowhere else do citizens enjoy the rights and privileges that we enjoy here. America really has nothing to apologize for. China really has the nerve to accuse us of human rights violations?

    I would ask that all voters demand term limits for all political offices, from the local level all the way to the capital building. If it's the law for governors and our president, why not the lawmakers? I don't believe that the founders of this great country ever intended for career politicians.

    Charles, thank you for your well written posts. I know that people may not always agree with what articles are published, and posts can sometimes become heated debates I still enjoy reading them.

  • Dear Localguy1972

    Thank you for your feedback and encouragement. I think that the "blah" in the weather has become contagious.

    You may have guessed that I enjoy sparring with the people who comment. It stimulates thought and perhaps we all benefit from the exercise.

    It is remarkable that our Attorney General has obviously spent more time reading reports and analyses of the Arizona law, but couldn't take the 30 or so minutes to read it. But what do you expect from Washington where perception, image, and being on the right side of an issue is more important than facts?

    I do feel very strongly about term limits. I am very disappointed that the Supreme Court struck down the States laws that limited the terms of their delegates to Washington. I believe that there is no shortage of qualified and capable people for elective office. Often potential candidates are dissuaded or prevented from challenging the incumbent during a primary. Over time there develops a "political class" which I believe to be unhealthy.

    Que sera sera.
