Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,
We're finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio. - Neil Young
There is something going on as a result of the "new" Arizona law that I find utterly perplexing, and it's not just happening in Arizona, but all over the country. People and elected politicians alike seem to have emerged from some sort of cloistered existence to now proclaim the "unconstitutional" actions of a state under assault by people who are here illegally. Arizona actually had the temerity to make these illegal acts criminal, and people are enraged.
A bill from the Arizona State Legislature - SB1070 - was signed into law a few days ago by Gov. Jan Brewer, immediately drawing howls of protest from liberals of all stripe and from "immigrants rights" groups in particular. Worse still is the fact that other state and county representatives have joined in the wailing, claiming that the law is a violation of the U.S. Constitution and an act of immeasurable racism.
Further, the President of the United States has called the law "misguided" and has vowed to contest it. What makes this last so incredible is that Governor Brewer and the state legislature enacted this law in desperation after the federal government abdicated its duty to protect the country from invasion, as required by the Constitution.
With the unhinged comprised a wide range of people, from entertainers to elected officials, one must wonder what is driving this anger at the enforcement of laws already enacted, albeit largely neglected. The Arizona law is merely an affirmation of existing federal law and a vow to uphold it. Yet wild-eyed liberals have vowed to protest and boycott everything "Arizona", including Arizona Iced Tea. (The hilarious irony is that Arizona Iced Tea was founded in 1992 by two fellows in Brooklyn, NY and is now headquartered in Manhattan.)
Less humorous by far, however, is the notion seemingly shared by many people and politicians that our Constitution is meaningless and, worse, a cumbersome document to be reviled. During the health care debate, members of Congress actually admitted as much. Such an atmosphere is also evident in the vilification of the Tea Party movement, whose goals are the preservation of our most cherished document from our Founders. The video below shows how dangerous the "Tea Partiers" can be:
I wish to apologize to anyone who may have been traumatized by the exposure to that vicious display by terrorist right wingers. Those are the people this administration and session of Congress view as threats to national security.
The pro-illegal-immigration protesters seen below apparently are of no concern to the government:
And now the Commander in Chief apparently has the military training to "protect the homeland" from the only people who seem to care about her security and longevity. According to The Patriot Post: Army Preps for Tea Party 'Terrorists'
A few months back, the commander in chief of our Armed Forces, that erstwhile community organizer Barack Hussein Obama, denigrated a large cross section of Americans who identify with the Tea Party movement -- those who advocate for Essential Liberty and Rule of Law.Is Neil Young still composing?
In response to the "immediate threat," the exercise stipulates, "local detention centers are being made ready for mass arrests." Both the "QRF I and QRF II" are placed on two hour recall, and the "5-15 CAV" was ordered to "draw weapons from holder and store in most available arms room," and "coordinate with MASA for immediate ammunition draw; have equipment readied for immediate use, i.e. vehicles staged and loaded IAW 5-15 CAV SOP; LMR's charged."
QRF refers to Quick Reaction Force. QRF I is the 16th Cavalry Regiment. QRF II is the 194th Armored Brigade.
The 26 April order gives specific instructions for the 5-15 CAV (a 16th Cavalry battalion) to have weapons, ammo, vehicles and communications at ready, and it places the other 2,200 members of the units on two-hour recall. In other words, these orders are to gear up for defending Ft. Knox against Tea Party folks and their co-conspirators who oppose nationalization of our health care sector.
