I Won’t Set Foot In Arizona



Isn’t that special? In Arizona a legal U.S. citizen who looks Hispanic and doesn’t have his papers with him gets six months in jail. Texas will probably be next.

Too bad all those Native Americans look so Hispanic, but then a lot of them are registered because of idiotic rules for Native Americans and Tom Coburn wants to attack them.

I guess I had better stay out of the tanning booths or when I go camping 100 miles from the Tex-Mex border someone will be asking for my papers. Now I’ll need another copy of my birth certificate.

Eight generations in Texas and 15 in the USA and I would need to prove I am a citizen. And I will need to make sure and not get upset at having to do all of that crap.

If I decide to drive to visit my daughter in Oregon, if I have to drive hundreds of miles out of the way, I will not be setting foot in Arizona.

Brunettes are no longer welcome in Arizona. I guess I need to change the reservations for my daughter, her boyfriend and his son for their trip here because they are scheduled to stop in Phoenix. My almost grandson looks very Hispanic because his mother is Korean. She and her boyfriend have brown eyes, too.

The Observer carries on the "give 'em hell" tradition of its founder, the late Frosty Troy. I read it from cover to cover. A progressive wouldn't be able to live in a red state without it.
