Arizona Immigration Law

I can't seem to get past this issue on my blog because - the entire will seems to be invoking it's will upon the great State of Arizona.

Governor Jan Brewer is not backing down, explaining today that racial profiling is against the law, it's illegal, it won't be tolerated. Senator John McCain is also standing behind it and now, Texas is talking about bringing it up in January. Well, if it were THAT bad to "everyone", why would the Texas senate even think about bringing up the subject?

Because, folks, NOT EVERYONE IS AGAINST THIS BILL. And again, a poll taken in Arizona with a error percentage of 4% found that 70% of Arizonans are FOR this bill.

San Francisco is openly bashing the law and Arizona and stating that they are cancelling any bookings to come here - for whatever purpose, but when asked if they would take in any or all of the estimated almost half MILLION of them from our state, they hemmed, hawed and wouldn't answer the question, even though they are allegedly known as a "safe haven" for illegals.

FREAKING HYPOCRITES. Mouthing off about US yet unwilling to do anything about it yourself? Go piss off. Yes, PLEASE take a half million of these people into your beloved city and see what happens to YOUR economy AND your way of life.

The professor who actually wrote this bill is saying that he thinks it will be very difficult for anyone to challenge the constitutionality of the bill because the bill follows what is already federal law. The only thing he came up with is whether a state has the right to right to act on it's own since the borders are the jurisdiction of the feds.

The thing that just makes me gasp is that Obama is all for making all of them that are already here, illegaly, legal citizens. I'll tell you what, you make them get off all federal and state subsidies including using hospitals as free health care and force them to pay taxes and force them to learn ENGLISH, then I MIGHT - START - to think in those terms.

Anyway, I was just reading that the boycott drive could end up backfiring. I'm staying tuned to all the developments as they continue to pour in, I have weighed in against illegal aliens and their presence here in our state for a long, long time now. My stance is echoed by millions, apparently.

Onto other things. Got off work a little early today - I am still 3 hours over on my time this week. I have yet another trip to Miami tomorrow, but so far it is the only thing so even though it will take half a day to do it, it will not cash out the entire day, so it may end up going home early tomorrow as well. Who knows, I would truly love to keep those hours and get that money on my paycheck. My take-home pay is SO low at this point that it feels like I am working for free. I'm not going to divulge my take home, just that I can remember jobs where I was taking home more than twice that amount.

The military female tenant is still $70 behind on her rent. I want every single penny of anything I can get. It's money I need to get back on track and to get some things done around here and try to get the electric ahead. However, I am considering calling SRP and seeing about getting on the yearly power bill thing, where you entire year last year is added up and then divided by 12 I assume and then you pay that amount every month. I do like my winter months where electric use goes way down and I get this huge reprieve on what I am facing right now. It's at least the mid 90's today and yes the AC is cranking away.

C'ya later.

Wednesday

Undoubtedly, I will be getting off of work early today. I am 3-1/2 hours over from yesterday and Monday. Well, undoubtedly, that is, if today's work doesn't take to my normal stop time, who knows.

Whatever the case, I have rocks to unload from the side box of the trailer : ) I didn't do it when I got back yesterday cause' it was late and I wanted to go home. Umm, I just published - I think - a post that has filter information from another page I was looking at. Disregard that posting as I am simply using it as a reference for my continued pre-planning of my ponds and how to keep them clean and aerated.

I have really, though, decided how to make one and I will hopefully be doing that this weekend, especially considering the price tag of maybe $20-$25 worth of parts to do it plus an $18 pump.

Anyway, this one is being cut short as the work day is almost here, my manager showed up early and off to the races!
