NPR:  Arizona is fighting for its new immigration law, meant to keep illegal immigrants out of the state. It asked an appeals court to reverse a federal district judge's decision to block key portions of the measure.
The remaining parts of the law did take effect Thursday, and opponents took to the streets of Phoenix.
Methodist pastor Laurel Scott, who came from Connecticut, held a yellow sign with the message: "Standing On The Side of Love." Scott marched down Washington Street in downtown Phoenix to fight the Arizona law and try to keep it from spreading.
"We hoped to see how we can react when inevitably this issue comes up in the New England region and how the church ought to respond," she said.
Dan Moore came from Cincinnati. He said he objects to any law that stands in the way of comprehensive federal immigration reform, including rights for illegal immigrants.
"I think our presence here is showing them here — in the heart of the conflict in this country around immigration — that people aren't afraid and they aren't intimidated by threats of deportation and raids," Moore said.
As the day went on, the march turned into a standing protest in a city park, then into resistance.
Phoenix police in riot gear moved people out of the street. Then, one by one, people went back into the street and were arrested in acts of civil disobedience. At least 50 people were arrested throughout the day.
Not many supporters of Senate Bill 1070 showed up, but one of its strongest defenders, Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, made his presence felt.
"He's still terrorizing our communities," said Phoenix resident Paul Sanchez.
Sanchez said having only a partial law wasn't stopping Arpaio from continuing his signature crime-suppression operations that target illegal immigrants.
"Therefore, we must continue this struggle, this fight, until full justice is served and until 1070 is no more complete," he said.
In fact, later in the day, protesters moved to the Maricopa County Jail, where they blocked the entrance — and were arrested.
"We're not going to let protesters hold this sheriff and my office hostage because they don't want us to book people into the jail," Arpaio told reporters at his training center west of downtown Phoenix.
The sheriff was forced to delay the start of his planned immigration sweep for four hours until things calmed down at the jail. Then, about 200 deputies and volunteer posse members eventually went ahead, despite Senate Bill 1070 being only partially in effect.
"We did pick this day, and I said two weeks ago it doesn't matter what the ruling is by the federal judge, that we're going to do it anyway," Arpaio said.
He said he was mainly using an older Arizona law that makes it a crime to smuggle immigrants.
Meanwhile, the legal battle over the new law moved to a federal appeals court. Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer's attorneys filed a motion to lift the temporary restraining order, including the requirement that officers during a stop check the immigration status of anyone they believe is an illegal immigrant.
The state asked the appeals court to hold a hearing no later than mid-September. The U.S. Justice Department on Thursday asked the court for more time to prepare its arguments.  
I know I keep posting about this illegal immigration.  But looking at that picture really ticks me off.  They DO NOT belong here, they DO NOT have a right to be here, and we are NOT going to unite with them in helping them break our laws and hurt our people.  AND WE ARE NOT THE SAME! We ARE AMERICANS, THEY ARE NOT!
Oh for the love of Pete, go back to your nation!  
I find it so unjust that there are hundreds maybe thousands of people who are going through the legal channels to become American citizens and they are being ignored.  While our ignorant, biased government wants to reward those law breaking scum bags!

Federal Judge Blocks Portions of Arizona Illegal Immigration Law

A federal judge on Wednesday blocked some of the toughest provisions in the Arizona illegal immigration law, putting on hold the state's attempt to have local police enforce federal immigration policy.

Though the rest of the law is still set to go into effect Thursday, the partial injunction on SB 1070 means Arizona, for the time being, will not be able to require police officers to determine the immigration status of anyone they stop or arrest.

U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton also struck down the section of law that makes it a crime not to carry immigration registration papers and the provision that makes it a crime for an illegal immigrant to seek or perform work.

Click here to read the ruling.

In all, Bolton struck down four sections of the law, the ones that opponents called the most controversial. Bolton said she was putting those sections on hold until the courts resolve the issues.

The ruling said the Obama administration, which sought the injunction, is likely to "succeed on the merits" in showing the above provisions are preempted by federal law.

"The court by no means disregards Arizona's interests in controlling illegal immigration and addressing the concurrent problems with crime including the trafficking of humans, drugs, guns, and money," the ruling said. "Even though Arizona's interests may be consistent with those of the federal government, it is not in the public interest for Arizona to enforce preempted laws."

A number of provisions will still go into effect as the case is litigated. Arizona will be able to block state officials from so-called "sanctuary city" policies limiting enforcement of federal law; require that state officials work with federal officials on illegal immigration; allow civil suits over sanctuary cities; and make it a crime to pick up day laborers.

The ruling came just as police were making last-minute preparations to begin enforcement of the law and protesters were planning large demonstrations to speak out against the measure. At least one group planned to block access to federal offices, daring officers to ask them about their immigration status

This is going way too far. Since when is it illegal to see if a person is legal or not?  I am really fuming over this.  Arizona is in a serious battle zone and the Obama administration is doing everything in its power to leave this state alone and helpless.  Americans should come FIRST, not second or third.  We are losing ground as citizens and it seems we are going to be overrun by illegals from all over, including terrorists that would like nothing more then to blow us all to hell.  And lest we forget, this is going to allow the drug cartel to move more easily through our borders.

What's next?  Grant them amnesty, register them all as Democrats, give them every possible aid that they can get at the taxpayers expense? Let's just reward them for breaking our laws and give them money as they climb over or drive over.

Is this not a dereliction of the president's duty? He is supposed to protect our borders and keep us safe and he is doing the complete opposite.  Time to impeach I think.

House Churches

I have just recently heard about "House Churches aka Organic churches" and I strongly disagree with the fundamentals and their philosphy.
Members of this "house church" are part of what experts say is a fundamental shift in the way U.S. Christians think about church. Skip the sermons, costly church buildings and large, faceless crowds, they say. House church is about relationships forged in small faith communities.
In general, house churches consist of 12 to 15 people who share what's going on in their lives, often turning to Scriptures for guidance. They rely on the Holy Spirit or spontaneity to lead the direction of their weekly gatherings.
House church proponents claim their small groups are sort of a throwback to the early Christian church in that they have no clergy and everyone is expected to contribute to the teaching, singing and praying.
 I am not sure where they get the idea that they do not require a clergyman or pastor?  Jesus was a teacher and he taught and trained his apostles to do the same.  And in the Old Testament, God spoke directly to his prophets.  
Even the Amish have their Bishops to teach, serve and counsel their flocks.  

I can see this as acceptable in countries where Christians don't have a choice and MUST have hidden home churches, but not  here in the states.  If they don't like the huge mega churches,there are plenty of smaller churches to choose from.

From what I have learned and read, these "churches" are more like a home bible study session but should not be construed as a "church."  

And what about tithes and offerings?  They are ignoring a commandment from God, because they only choose to tithe when a situation arises.  So, basically they keep their 10% and offerings from God.  
The majority seems averse to a regular offering, preferring to take up a collection only when a need or charitable cause arises.
They also claim that there are challenges for various denominations that are unable to financially support a full-time religious leader.  For them it is not an issue because they don't have to pay anyone a salary and they don't have to be dependent upon someone to translate for them.  

Basically these are people lack leadership and DO NOT want direction and are teaching others to do the same.  I hesitate in calling them "Christians" because I just don't see them following the teachings of the Holy Bible or Jesus.

Brain Test--- something fun for the weekend

First let me say that I am embarrassed of my results...I need some R&R pronto!!

Let me know how you did, okay?

It's that time of year to take our annual senior citizen test.
 Exercise of the brain is as important as exercise of the muscles. As we grow older, it's important to keep mentally alert. If you don't use it, you lose it! Below is a very private way to gauge your loss or non-loss of intelligence...
 Take the test presented here to determine if you're losing it or not.. The spaces below are so you don't see the answers until you've made your answer.
 OK, relax, clear your mind and begin.

 1. What do you put in a toaster?

 Answer: 'bread...' If you said 'toast,' give up now and do something else.
 Try not to hurt yourself. If you said, bread, go to Question 2.
 2. Say 'silk' five times. Now spell 'silk.' What do cows drink?
 Answer: Cows drink water. If you said 'milk,' don't attempt the next question. Your brain is over-stressed and may even overheat. Content yourself with reading a more appropriate literature such as Auto World. However, if you said 'water', proceed to question 3
 3. If a red house is made from red bricks and a blue house is made from blue bricks and a pink house is made from pink bricks and a black house is made from black bricks, what is a green house made from?
 Answer: Greenhouses are made from glass. If you said 'green bricks,' why the hell are you still reading these???
 If you said 'glass,' go on to Question 4
 4. It's twenty years ago, and a plane is flying at 20,000 feet over Germany (If you will recall, Germany at the time was politically divided into West Germany and East Germany .....) Anyway, during the flight, two engines fail. The pilot, realizing that the last remaining engine is also failing, decides on a crash landing procedure. Unfortunately the engine fails before he can do so and the plane fatally crashes smack in the middle of 'no man's land' between East Germany and West Germany .. Where would you bury the survivors? East Germany, West Germany, or no man's land'?
 Answer: You don't bury survivors.
 If you said ANYTHING else, you're a dunce and you must stop. If you said, 'You don't bury survivors', proceed to the next question.
 5. Without using a calculator - You are driving a bus from London to Milford Haven in Wales . In London , 17 people get on the bus. In Reading , six people get off the bus and nine people get on. In Swindon , two people get off and four get on. In Cardiff , 11 people get off and 16 people get on. In Swansea , three people get off and five people get on ... In Carmathen, six people get off and three get on.. You then arrive at Milford Haven.
 What was the name of the bus driver?
 Answer: Oh, for crying out loud!
 Don't you remember your own name? It was YOU!!
 Now pass this along to all your friends and pray they do better than you.

   PS: 95% of people fail most of the questions!!

Marriage Supporters Bullied and Intimidated by Gay-Marriage Protesters

The National Organization for Marriage are on a month-long bus tour to promote marriage between a husband and a wife.
Protestors in Albany, New York and Providence, Rhode Island interrupted the rallies, and even got in the face of some of the marriage supporters—including a young mother there with her children.
See video of the protestors on the Marriage Tour 2010 Web site.  The tour will be in Columbus, Ohio this Friday, July 23.
Notice how peaceful the Conservatives are behaving and then look at the psychotic behavior of the protesters.

 Below is a link detailing the young mother's experience as she faced the intense hatred of those same people who demand tolerance?????

Biden is confident that his party will win the House and Senate

Once again Biden speaks before he thinks. His and Pelosi's arrogance truly have no bounds.  They are so engrossed in their power that they have ignored the voice of the people and are not hearing how discontented everyone is.  They ignorantly believe the people are happy with how they are running things.  

Who will get the last laugh or vote?  NOVEMBER IS COMING!  

Democrats going up the chain all the way to Vice President Biden tried feverishly on Sunday to reverse Robert Gibbs' prediction that Republicans could seize the House in November, as GOP lawmakers claimed Washington indeed was on the verge of a power shift.
The White House press secretary earned a rebuke from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi last week when he claimed her majority was in peril. Pelosi's deputies on Sunday sought to put that notion to rest as Biden made a confident prediction about his party's chances in November. He said voters don't yet grasp the benefits of Democrat-passed policies but that they will begin to crystallize in time for the midterm elections.
"I think we're going to shock the heck out of everybody," Biden said. "We're going to win the House and we're also going to win the Senate. We're not going to lose either one of those bodies."
Gibbs spoke the truth and the Dems are scrambling like mad little roaches trying to hide from it.  Too bad, the words were spoken and cannot be retracted.

Biden maybe eating his words this coming November.  Time to get the pink slips out!

Officer Sues Over Arizona Immigration Law

 I just had to share this article I found on Fox News and the Wall Street Journal.
"PHOENIX—A lawyer for a Phoenix police officer told a federal court Thursday his client could be sued for racial profiling if he enforces Arizona's new immigration law. It is the first hearing in a series of legal challenges filed over the controversial crackdown which has divided law enforcement in the state and across the country.
Officer David Salgado, a 19-year veteran of the Phoenix police department, could also lose his job if he fails to enforce the new law, his attorney said.
Arizona's statute requires an officer to verify the immigration status of a person stopped for other alleged crimes, if "reasonable suspicion" exists of illegal presence in the U.S.
But the law also empowers Arizona residents to sue an officer they believe isn't enforcing the law to the fullest extent.
"If he enforces the law, he can be sued. If he doesn't enforce the law, he can be sued" by a private citizen, said Stephen Montoya, the attorney for Mr. Salgado. His client "is caught between a rock and a hard place," he said.
Mr Montoya also argued that the law, which makes it a state crime to be in the U.S. illegally, usurps federal authority over immigration. "The state of Arizona cannot order its employees to violate federal law," he said.
Attorneys for Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer told the judge that the lawsuit, which was also filed by an advocacy group called Chicanos Por La Causa, should be dismissed because the police officer and the group have no valid claim of immediate harm and the state law doesn't trump federal immigration law.
Outside the courthouse, in 105-degree heat, about 50 protesters and supporters of the law gathered; police kept the two sides apart."
You know what?  They should either fire this clown, or he needs to find another job or get a desk job.  

And how is it even possible to sue for something that hasn't even happened yet?  

These ridiculous lawsuits against Arizona has made America a laughing stock.  

Furthermore, every sane and intelligent person knows that you CANNOT enter any other country without proper identification, passports, Visas or even a work permit.  If you are unable to produce any of these documents you get your butt thrown in jail, pay fines, etc.  You break the law you suffer the consequences.  

Yet, we have a government that refuses to enforce the laws regarding illegals??  Governor Richardson of NM has boycotted Arizona and refuses to speak with Governor Brewer, along with other delegates, yet they support a president that welcomes meetings with the Hamas?   

November is coming....

Attacks in Afghanistan Kill 8 American Soldiers

Eight brave of our American soldiers  died in attacks in southern Afghanistan outside a police compound in Kandahar,  as the Taliban pushed back against a coalition effort to secure the region.
A suicide attacker slammed a car bomb into the gate of the headquarters of the elite Afghan National Civil Order Police late Tuesday in Kandahar, a NATO statement said. Minutes later, insurgents opened fire with machine guns and rocket-propelled grenades.
However, the insurgents FAILED to enter the compound!  And this was done even when Obama ties the hands of our military.  We still manage to kick some serious terrorist asses!
May God bless our brothers and sisters in arms and keep them safe.  Bless the families that are dealing with the loss of their loved ones.
One more thing, because this has angered me, those men should  not have died.  And I do blame Obama for their deaths.  We need our troops home not fighting a war with one hand tied behind their backs!  Either let them get the job done right and pull them the hell out of there!

Obama Bypasses Senate to install a new czar for Medicare & Medicaid

On July 9, 2010 – Obama has installed Dr. Donald Berwick, an enthusiast supporter for medical rationing and an avid admirer of the United Kingdom’s socialized health care system, as head of the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services via a recess appointment, WITHOUT senate or Republican approval.  This is very frightening for our elderly and those who suffer from debilitating and long-term sicknesses. This is very bad news and we all should be worried, especially those with elderly parents or sick children, or adults who require medication to keep them alive.
"This means Berwick may take charge of the Center for the next year, without first having to go through Senate approval. This will allow him to have an influence on the CMS’s $800 billion budget and the myriad regulations that must be drafted for the national health care reform, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (known by its critics as “ObamaCare”), before it takes full effect in 2014."
"Republicans expressed outrage, saying that the president was avoiding a public debate on a man whose advocacy of rationing is way outside the mainstream."
Dr. Berwick has been quoted , I am romantic about the NHS; I love it.  All I need to do to rediscover the romance is to look at health care in my own country."AND "He has additionally stated, “The N.H.S. is not just a national treasure; it is a global treasure" and has elsewhere praised the British people for having socialized medicine and rejecting  “the darkness of private enterprise.”
"An editorial in the Wall Street Journal pointed out that Berwick co-authored a 1996 book entitled “New Rules,” in which he argued that government health regulations had a primary duty "to constrain decentralized, individual decision making" and "to weigh public welfare against the choices of private consumers."
Berwick repeated this utilitarian attitude toward health care in the May/June 2008 issue of Health Affairs, saying that "rational collective action overriding some individual self-interest" is necessary to reduce per capita patient costs."

 First, Obama and his administration shove down a health care system that only a hand-full of people want which will costs taxpayers over a trillion dollars, they completely disregard the Republican party and completely disregard the will of the people.

Islam on the rise thanks to Obama

Let's all give a huge "THANK YOU" to Obama for his pro-Islamic ideas and his embracing them into our nation.  We can blame him and his liberal cronies for the radical Islamic groups who are becoming more bold  in holding their conferences on American soil.  Their goal is so transparent, they want global submission and since the US president is beckoning them with open arms, of course, they will do what they can to make their goal a reality. 

"On July 11 the radical Islamic group Hizb ut-Tahrir America (HTA) will hold its second annual "Global Campaign for Khilafah" in a Chicago suburb to call for an end to capitalism and to hype the virtues of an Islamic state ruled by strict sharia law. Last year's gathering -- themed "Fall of Capitalism & Rise of Islam" -- drew about 500 people, but this year the group has reserved an 11,000-square-foot ballroom, hoping to draw more than a thousand participants. This year's event is billed "Emerging World Order: How the Khilafah Will Shape the World.
HTA is an extremist organization which wants to establish a global Khilafah. The group has been described by the president of American Islamic Forum for Democracy as "a conveyor belt to terror" and a former member as believing that "homosexuals should be thrown off the highest building." Among its alumni are 9/11 mastermind Kalid Sheik Mohammed and Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the one-time leader of al-Qaida in Iraq."
Obama has basically tossed Israel aside, quite literally, Benjamin Natenyahu was escorted out of the White House using the servants entrance.  And so giving strength to the Muslims and to encourage them to  speak openly about the fall of capitalism and to embrace Sharia law and Islam.

This is outrageous!  I can just see Americans, Christians or Jews, being slaughtered if they ever tried anything like that on Muslim soil.  They'd be shot, or beheaded.  And yet, we have our American president welcoming them into our nation and allowing them to tear down our heritage without any repercussion!  

This is a slap in the face to every single American soldier who gave their lives, limbs, their ALL to protect our nation from oppression, to protect our freedom from tyranny and our enemies.  Yet, it is happening before our eyes.  The Muslim movement is strategic and precise.  Make no mistake people, they have every intention of destroying our sovereign nation.  And Obama has opened the door for them.

If Obama is so fond of the Muslims and wants to make them feel better about themselves and embraces their culture, why doesn't he just resign as the US president and become prime minister of one of their Muslim nations.

I miss President Bush.

The new addiction no one talks about

I have heard pastors talking on the radio at church and so forth about people conquering their addictions to alcohol, drugs, pornography, sex, and so forth.  And there are places they can visit to get the help that they need, and I think that is fantastic.

However, there is a new addiction that no one has addressed, at least, from what I have observed.  I am talking about adults who are literally addicted to video games.  

I am sure most of you have heard of WOW (World of Warcraft) millions are online 24 hours a day and neglect their families, their jobs, their lives in order to stay online to play this addictive game.  I have seen this game and quite frankly I don't see what the big deal is?  

I know of gamers that breathe, eat and sleep WOW.  I am not just picking on that particular video game, but using it as a prime example.  

Anyhoo, the point of this post is to make people aware that this an addiction, it is just as dangerous as any potent drug.  It can consume a person' s life and we need to make pastors and professional counselors aware that there is a need for families to reach out and get help, pronto!

Ted Nugent on TEA Party on Hannity

Even as a kid I have been a fan of Ted Nugent and even more so.  He is a strong patriot who is very vocal in protecting this nation, our constitution, the Ten Commandments, and basically speaking out for the average American.

If he were to ever decide to run for office, I would vote for him.  This guy is down to earth and a family man, just a lot of positives aspects to who he is and he is credible in my opinion, because of his honesty.  Yes, he has a rough past, but who doesn't?

The man is a patriot.

Assimilation and the Founding Fathers

I ran into this article at OneNewsNow by Michelle Malkin and I feel it is worth repeating here.  She made some excellent points and I agree with her.

"In his immigration speech on Thursday, President Obama heralded America as a "nation of immigrants" defined not by blood or birth, but by "fidelity to the shared values that we all hold so dear." If only it were so. Left-wing academics and activists spurned assimilation as a common goal long ago. Their fidelity lies with bilingualism (a euphemism for native language maintenance over English-first instruction), identity politics, ethnic militancy and a borderless continent.

Obama blames "politics" for the intractable immigration debate. Whose politics? The amnesty mob has taken to ambushing congressional offices this week to scream at lawmakers to choose "reform" (giving a blanket path to citizenship to millions of illegal aliens) or "racism" (their description of any and every legislative measure to stiffen sanctions for and deter the acts of border-jumping, visa-overstaying and deportation-evading).

Is there no middle ground for all sides to agree that clearing naturalization application backlogs should take priority over expanding illegal alien benefits -- or that tracking and deporting violent illegal alien criminals should take precedence over handing out driver's licenses to illegal aliens -- or that streamlining the employee citizenship verification process for businesses (E-verify) and fixing outdated visa tracking databases should come before indiscriminately expanding temporary visa and guest worker programs?

Must every response to even the most modest of immigration enforcement measures be "RAAAAACIST"?

Further, as I've noted many times over the years when debating both Democrats and Republicans who fall back on empty phrases to justify putting the amnesty cart before the enforcement horse, we are not a "nation of immigrants." This is both a factual error and a warm-and-fuzzy non sequitur. Eighty-five percent of the residents currently in the United States were born here. Yes, we are almost all descendants of immigrants. But we are not a "nation of immigrants." (And the politically correct president certainly wouldn't argue that Native American Indians, Native Alaskans, Native Hawaiians and descendants of black slaves "immigrated" here in any common sense of the word, would he?)

Even if we were a "nation of immigrants," it does not explain why we should be against sensible immigration control. The Founding Fathers were emphatically insistent on protecting the country against indiscriminate mass immigration. They insisted on assimilation as a pre-condition, not an afterthought. Historian John Fonte assembled their wisdom, and it bears repeating this Independence Day weekend:
• George Washington, in a letter to John Adams, stated that immigrants should be absorbed into American life so that "by an intermixture with our people, they, or their descendants, get assimilated to our customs, measures, laws: in a word soon become one people."

• In a 1790 speech to Congress on the naturalization of immigrants, James Madison stated that America should welcome the immigrant who could assimilate, but exclude the immigrant who could not readily "incorporate himself into our society."

• Alexander Hamilton wrote in 1802: "The safety of a republic depends essentially on the energy of a common national sentiment; on a uniformity of principles and habits; on the exemption of the citizens from foreign bias and prejudice; and on that love of country which will almost invariably be found to be closely connected with birth, education and family."

• Hamilton further warned that "The United States have already felt the evils of incorporating a large number of foreigners into their national mass; by promoting in different classes different predilections in favor of particular foreign nations, and antipathies against others, it has served very much to divide the community and to distract our councils. It has been often likely to compromise the interests of our own country in favor of another. The permanent effect of such a policy will be, that in times of great public danger there will be always a numerous body of men, of whom there may be just grounds of distrust; the suspicion alone will weaken the strength of the nation, but their force may be actually employed in assisting an invader."
The survival of the American republic, Hamilton maintained, depends upon "the preservation of a national spirit and a national character." "To admit foreigners indiscriminately to the rights of citizens the moment they put foot in our country would be nothing less than to admit the Grecian horse into the citadel of our liberty and sovereignty."

As pro-amnesty extremists moan that "we didn't cross the borders, the borders crossed us" and illegal alien marchers haul foreign flags above Old Glory, President Obama pretends that the "common national sentiment" our Founding Fathers embraced still binds us all together. Many of us still have faith in a strong, sovereign America -- the unhyphenated, the law-abiding, the gratitude-filled sons and daughters and grandchildren of legal immigrants for whom such distinctions still matter. But it's no thanks to the assimilation saboteurs who put "one world" over "one nation under God."

California residents are up in arms that a flag mural — paying homage to victims of the 9/11 terrorist attacks — was painted over after the state ruled it was graffiti. State transportation workers on Thursday turned the 35-foot hillside mural on Interstate 680 in Silicon Valley back into a gray slab of concrete, KTVU-TV reported. The explanation? It simply had been put on a list for graffiti remove, one official said. But the landmark had been a favorite among residents and motorists. "It just made me feel really patriotic just seeing it every day," motorcyclist Dave Freely told KTVU-TV. The artist behind the mural, Eric Noda, was among those confused as to why the state suddenly deemed the flag graffiti and motioned to take it down. "It should not be classified as graffiti. I mean it was a well-done flag and I felt like it's part of America," said Noda said. But the state apparently wasn't aware until now that the eight-year-old mural was on the state's highway right-of-way. Otherwise, it would have be removed a lot sooner. The flag muralists vow to repaint the mural in time for the tenth anniversary of the terrorist attacks. But the state says they will have to go through an application process for permission to create "transportation art."

Ok, so let me get this straight.  California residents are in an uproar because the American flag was considered graffiti and was painted over after standing for eight years. This is coming from the same state that bashes Arizona for upholding a federal law to PROTECT THEIR BORDERS, right?  This flag was to honor and memorialize 9/11, that's fantastic, I have no argument with that.  But come on!  Think about this, who was flying those planes?  Were they legal American citizens? NO they were terrorists!  They trained here on American soil and on American planes and used that training to annihilate US citizens.  And lest we forget, the Russian spies, we know for fact entered our borders illegally!  So forgive me if I don't get all emotional for California because a flag was painted over.  Where is their moral outrage about protecting our borders from these criminals?  Please answer me this.
And spare me with the alligator tears Californian citizens, you are the ones who voted in these anti-American representatives, YOU!  There is no where else to point the finger.  You allowed them to indoctrinate your children, you are allowing them to take away your freedom of speech, you are allowing  illegal aliens into your state with open arms, YES! YOU!  You have allowed these representatives to mandate every part of your lives, so you made your beds now sleep in them.
If you're truly fed up with your reps, vote em out!
