Bloviating Zeppelin: Arizona Leads The Way

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

Arizona Leads The Way


Obviously, to the chagrin of John "Amnesty Ramdown" McCain.

PHOENIX — The signs of flight among Latino immigrants here are multiple: Families moving out of apartment complexes, schools reporting enrollment drops, business owners complaining about fewer clients.

While it is too early to know for certain, a consensus is developing among economists, business people and immigration groups that the weakening economy coupled with recent curbs on illegal immigration are steering Hispanic immigrants out of the state.


The Arizona economy, heavily dependent on growth and a Latino work force, has been slowing for months. Meanwhile, the state has enacted one of the country’s toughest laws to punish employers who hire illegal immigrants, and the county sheriff here in Phoenix has been enforcing federal immigration laws by rounding up people living here illegally.


I must be missing something -- what part of this is necessarily bad news?

Yeah, that doesn't sound like bad news to me either.

Oklahoma did it first, and many of their illegals fled into Texas. I wish all states would follow the example of Oklahoma and Arizona. Well, we know for sure California and Massachusetts won't. I was referring to normal American states! :)

Dear me!

Enforcing the law *works*?

Don't let the Left know that nor the 'classical liberals' looking to remove classically liberal ideas from the Nation. Those folks are about making rules, not enforcing laws...

You know, with the Super Bowl messing up the traffic patterns for a while, I didn't really notice - but now that the excitement has died down, there does seem to be fewer vehicles on the road.

Imagine that - enforcing a law, and being surprised that it works as planned. No activist judges involved, but letting the people's votes stand.
