Question for Arizona

Governor Brewer and Senator John McCain keep claiming that AZ has the second highest kidnapping rate in the world. Governor Brewer has even claimed that headless bodies have been found out there in the desert wilds. (A story for which she has no proof, I might add.)

Here’s my question — pay attention — it’s a good one: Why would any American consider, even for a moment, taking a vacation to Arizona when the Governor of the state and one of its respected Senators has basically announced that the state is full of lawless illegal immigrants and, because of them, people are not safe? Where would you like to spend your vacation money: some place safe, like, say Maine or in the wild, wild west of Arizona where you’ll be lucky to come home outside of a body bag?

Why would you advertise your home state that way?

Hey, I had no plans to visit Arizona this year nor next year, so it really doesn’t matter to me. However; I’m sure a lot of people do have or are making plans to go there. Based on what I know about Arizona, the state takes in a lot of tourism dollars, so why would you want to discourage tourism? Especially, when you offer no proof of your claims?

It seems pretty hokey to me. Is this just so Brewer and McCain can win their respective elections come November?

Or, have they been sitting too long in the Arizona sun and they are suffering from heat stroke?

Just asking.

The Out4Immigration Blog

On July 13th, I wrote a blog regarding H.R. 1024 – Uniting American Families Act of 2009 and I encouraged all of my readers to make a difference and write their Congressional Representatives. On July 14th, I noticed that I have a comment from one of the members at The Out4Immigration Blog. They are a grassroots organization trying to make a difference in the lives of gays and lesbians who are affected by the ridiculous laws that do not allow a gay partner to sponsor their immigrant spouse. They’re calling for people to sign their petition. Please take the time to not only check out their website, but to sign the petition.

H.R.1024 – Uniting American Families Act of 2009

H.R. 1024 – Uniting American Families Act of 2009 – is languishing in the House.  The poor bill is just sitting there in the Subcommittee on Immigration, Citizenship, Refugees, Border Security, and International Law.


We need to work together, fellow citizens, to get it out.


Here’s the deal: There are literally thousands of American citizens who are separated from their life partners because they can’t sponsor them to become American citizens or even to receive their green cards.  Does that even make sense?  A company can obtain a green card for someone to have a “highly skilled” job that takes the job away from a U.S. citizen, but life long partners cannot keep their families together.  It is a disgrace that we allow this to happen.


So, here’s what I want you to do.  I want you to send a letter to Congressperson and ask them to address this situation.  There’s an organization who is working on grassroot efforts called Change.  They have a letter posted on the site that you can use if you don’t know what to write.  


Let’s all join together and make a difference!
