    Simply that Arizona like Enron cut off power to innocent people to serve their own selfish purposes.

    and Los Angeles didn't cut off involvement with Arizona FIRST to serve it's own selfish purposes?

    And illegal immigrants haven't come into our country and broken our laws in the process to serve their own selfish purposes?

    Kettle meet pot.

    Arizona's leaders are the only ones trying to do the RIGHT thing.

    Even the Democratic Party Platform claims to support anti-illegal immigrant measures (such as found in this bill) - so I think the only ones ON the right track is Arizona - everyone else is just taking a partisan nitpick approach.

    Far from the BS that the Democrats claimed to believe in: " abandon[ing] the politics of partisan division and find[ing] creative solutions to promote the common good."

    You have it wrong. Its Los Angeles a that is the the one that wants to cut off all business with Arizona for their own selfish purposes, which is to extort Arizona into tolerating illegals.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I started a thread about the hypocrisy surrounding the Democrats sudden anti-Arizona effort view:http://www.debatepolitics.com/immigr...migration.html

    Adding to that - here's two other JUICY tidbits taken from the Democratic Party Platform which actually suggests that the government should PROTECT Arizona for these 'boycotts' being waged against it.

    It also states that they feel illegals should learn English.

    We will fight discrimination against Americans who have always played by our immigration rules but are sometimes treated as if they had not.
    For the millions living here illegally but otherwise playing by the rules, we must require them to come out of the shadows and get right with the law. We support a system that requires undocumented immigrants who are in good standing to pay a fine, pay taxes, learn English, and go to the back of the line for the opportunity to become citizens. They are our neighbors, and we can help them become full tax-paying, law-abiding, productive members of society.
    Too bad the REAL Democrats aren't like their PLATFORM that they wrote and claim to believe in - I agree with a lot of things they've written but, in reality, They're full of ****.

    I guess if you can't just pick out the bad apples you've gotta card everyone at the door. . . too bad they won't actually make the system work, Democrats fail horribly at getting technology to be on their side.

    Only they won't be carding everyone at the door. Just those who look browner than others and can't speak english so good.

    That was referring to the suggested workers-ID card that everyone who's legally employed will carry.

    This already exists. It's called an H1B.
