Outraged and Amused, all at the same time. Outraged to read that a fan was ejected from a Phoenix Suns basketball game, and amused that there were free tickets involved.
Two fans at a Phoenix Suns basketball game were ejected from their first row seats and removed from the arena last week after refusing orders from security guards to take off their shirts in support of Arizona’s recently passed law against illegal immigration.
Via The Daily Caller, politics at a basketball game. I really want to know if the security guards were either acting on their own, or acting upon someone else’s demand. It all turns out OK in the end, but here was a free speech moment under attack. It would have been one thing if the shirt said either something vulgar or racially inflammatory, but the shirt only said, Viva Los 1070. In reference to the Arizona Immigration law.
They didn’t read the Arizona Law. Just like Obamacare, they didn’t read the bill. Illegal immigration has been a problem for both Democrats and Republicans. For very different reasons. Republicans believe in a path to citizenship. This involves qualifying for citizenship. Whereas, Democrats exploit immigrants for votes.
As a legal immigrant to this Great Country, I traveled that path to citizenship, to Naturalization. And, I have no regrets. Except for the Socialism path that Obama seems determined to put us on. Many of us left Europe to get away from state run health care, state run unions, and state run entitlement programs. I believe in Individualism. I believe in self governance. I believe in keeping what I have earned.
Google the phrase, “democrats eye 401k”
There, you will find thousands of articles, over the years, where democrats have viewed private investments as means to fund entitlement programs. If you have a 401K, then you should be alarmed. But I digress.
Comic In Chief
How many more people, legal and illegal, have to die before the federal government does its job and protect the boarders. All those Canadians, pouring across the boarders, speaking Canuck, and not English. It’s shameful.

Teriyaki Chicken over White Bean Ragout
Is that racist to use White Beans over, say, Refried Beans?
