    Hell Yeah, Boycott California!
    The water is controlled by the feds, and we know what happens when the feds are in charge of enforcing laws . . . AZ has been screwed over with their water by California for years.

    Hey were are the Red states in their support of AZ. Has any of them came out an said, screw california, we'll support you? crickets?

    All Right! Two different threads, and two copy and paste jobs....Who are you deriving this simplistic talking point from? DailyKos? DemoUnderground?

    I tell ya, it sucks being one of the few people who can still see where the pragmatic center is. I feel like the guy at the rock show who passed on the acid. Should I run for the door, or try to help some of you sober up?

    I suppose your version of "pragmatic center" includes bigotry towards 'selected' socio-economic classes beneath yours...."non-victims" deemed by you as ignorant, trailer inhabiting white folks whom are no use to forwarding your leftie agenda...

    Exposing leftie bigots is a hobby of mine. Tread lightly.

    As for your answer about the Tea Party....nice pat, talking point opinion. Obviouly garnered from leftie blogs, 'progressive' sites, the MSM and an administration that endlessly insults and marginalizes average Americans pissed off about an inept, bloated federal governments lack of accountability, fiscal irresponsibility, and selective, convenient adherance to the Constitution ... simply because they are a clear and present danger to progressive / leftist agenda.

Choosen means that something was considered, but for reasons known only to the a person or entity, something was not chosen, e.g. hot immigration issue, city decided to pay, whatever, etc.
    The word "moved" was used repeatedly. I was merely pointing out the inaccuracy of using that word. I am not a member of the GOP (full disclosure -- I once was a card carrying GOP member and ran for a local office on the GOP banner but left the party eight years ago), but I believe that Tampa was the right decision and that conclusion has NOTHING to do with the Arizona law problem. The other two proposed sites are pretty solidly in the GOP column. Florida is a slight GOP lean, but only slight, and the GOP needs that state to have a reasonable chance of winning the presidential election. The thinking going on is that such a high profile meeting in the state will lift the profile of the party. I am not sure I buy it, I don't know how many people change their vote based on the location of the party convention, but I understand the rationale from the GOP perspective.

    Good come back. I don't know if you are faithful follower of brother Rush, or Brother Hannity, or Fox News, etc. But, many who are GOP or Conservative, care what these people state, in fact, they base their opinions on what they say. So maybe you don't care, but maybe the GOP cares that this talking head has to say.
    I don't even have access to any of them from my current location. Even when I did and did from time to time listen to them, I would find that I disagreed with them from time to time as well. I think for myself. I have on more than one occassion criticized GOP members of this forum and GOP politicians.

    Legislative process take time equates to "oh crap, we better not do this because we may look like the bigots in AZ, and people may boycott." If this law was so solid, and if the GOP states where so for this law, why not pass it? Why not say, hey AZ we back you? Hey we'll send you some business, we'll back you up. Instead they wait and see. Sounds like someone who is a coward, not a supporter.
    Actually, I think it is correct to observe how this works in Arizona before adopting similar legislation. It is called being intelligent... I know intelligence is somethign we don't consider our politicians as having, but I know from experience that there are many intelligent legislators on both sides of the political aisle. Also, there is only one other GOP-border state on the southern border (Texas). I certainly hope they are looking at the implementation of this law and will consider similar legislation if this turns out to be at least somewhat effective.

    I agree people are sheep, but conservative are sheep also, but people are also ostrichs (sic) especially conservatives e.g. see above, "I do whatever conserative pundits or news outlets tell me to do." The MLK holiday issue caused our state to lose countless dollars and made us look like a bunch of bigots. The fact that our state depends on tourist/convention dollars is fact that needs to be a strong consideration for not appearing as a place were bigots.
    I don't believe Arizonans were bigots. They were unfortunately cast in a bad light unfairly. I was also against the MLK holiday, but that does not make me a bigot. I was also a strong supporter of the New Hampshire compromise, but our state was also cast as being bigoted despite the fact that our old holiday observance was MORE inclusive than the MLK holiday is.

    Again, people are ostrichs (sic). Naturalization includes enforcing laws of naturalization, e.g. illegal immigration, citizenship process, etc. No it is a law that was created because the federal gov't, both GOP and Dem, failed to secure our borders and failed to do their job, which in turn cause conservatives in AZ to feel that we needed a law because we ain't getting the feds to help. I am all for enforcing immigration laws, and I am all for closing the border. Hell send illegals back by the billions, but don't use my state tax money to do this, use federal dollars, and make it the responsiibily of ICE to enforce the law.
    The illegal immigration laws were passed by the federal government. The state government of Arizona is merely passing laws to implement and enforce laws that are already on the books. In the absence of such enforcement from the national government, I support efforts from the states to do this...
