    Yet you are against a law that would actually DO SOMETHING to address the problem. If you are against a law that would do something about the problem, perhaps that means you support those creating the problem. Hence, the logical supposition that you are pro-illegal.

    I guess if Arizona doesn't want to be treated like the old, fat, bigoted, white "uncle" in the "family" of states, it should stop acting like old, fat, bigoted, white "uncle." They are certainly entitled to be jerks if they please, however, the rest of us are also entitled not to do business with them.

    Don't like it? Not our problem.

    What is the problem with Arizona trying to enforce their border with Mexico? What is wrong with someone having to show a drivers licence when pulled over for a traffic stop? I have to show mine.....


    I wish liberals would cease with the misrepresentation with things they disagree with that are perfectly legal, and proper for a state to implement.

    Did I say I have a "problem with Arizona trying to enforce their border with Mexico"???

    No.

    Did I say there is something "wrong with someone having to show a drivers licence when pulled over for a traffic stop???

    No.

    Have fun dancing with your strawmen.

    I wish "conservatives" would learn how to read and limit their comments to what is actually said.

    Ok, that's fair enough. So let me ask, I get the impression that you are opposed to the Arizona law, if so, what is your objection to it?

    It's not in Arizona's purview, it's a federal issue.

    I also understand the real nature of dogwhistle wedge issues. This is nothing more than state sponsored bigotry couched in legalese claptrap.

    BUT..

    If Arizona wants to be seen as the leading edge for extremist bigotry, that's just fine. Let 'em. Just don't piss and moan when the rest of us kick 'em to the curb. We have every right to express our disgust for their knuckledragging hate politics and boycott them.

    The Federal government has had decades to deal with this problem, and they have failed to do so. Allow me a question, where does the Federal government get their power? From the states? Or, do the states get their powers from what the Federal government decides they should have?

    How so?

    Again, How so? and would you be so kind as to answer my question in the previous post? It was....

    What is your objection to the Arizona law? Be specific please.

    Just don't piss and moan in November when folks, finally awake, energized and expressing disgust for an inept, out of control, ever expanding federal government, kick this administration to the curb.

    A boycott I'd like to see: "**** YOU!" neatly printed in the "amount owed" box on about 20 million 1040 forms.

    Love the decision. Good on 'em.

    Here's the thing, though. Because I'm an actual small government conservative I support Arizona's right to pass whatever laws/rules they deem fit. I also support areas on Illinois making the choice to boycott (more directly as well).

    How many of the "conservatives" here are actually willing to take the same stance about a school in a state that has jack **** to do with them?
    So are you saying that are are pro-small federal government, but pro HUGE state Government?

    Great spin, shouldn't you state to be more accurate, "All over a law that was not enforced by the federal gov't?"

    Every Republician should force the Fed's to get off their ass and enforce the laws that are on the books.

    Bush didn't do it. Obama won't do it. Wow, give me a Federal Polititian with guts to do it. Come on Red states don't wait, pass the law.
