Free Speech for the Dumb: Rep. Raul Grijalva & Thomas Saenz

Wow a two for one on the "Free Speech for the Dumb" tag tonight. Both are dealing with the new law in Arizona, which in a nutshell enforces the federal law when it comes to illegal aliens (yes, I still use illegal aliens...I guess that makes me evil too).

First up Rep. Raul Grijalva who is an elected official from Arizona. His way to protest the law, boycott Arizona. Yes, that's right, boycott the state you represent.

"The consequences we can only bring up right now is economic sanctions," Grijalva said. "We're asking organizations -- civic, religious, labor, Latino, organizations of color -- to refrain from using Arizona as a convention site, to refrain from spending their dollars in the state of Arizona until Arizona turns the clock forward instead of backwards and joins the rest of the union."

So let's get this straight, Rep. Grijalva wants everyone to boycott his own state which would result in lost revenue and in turn jobs. And why? Oh yeah to protect illegal aliens. That makes sense, let's not worry about your own citizens but someone who is here illegally.


#2 Thomas Saenz is the president and general counsel of the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund...whatever that is. Well he has an interesting take on state & federal laws;

"If every state had its own laws, we wouldn't be one country; we'd be 50 different countries,"

I'm sorry last time I checked states were able to create law for their own states. Which is why gambling is legal in Nevada and California is about to see even more job losses with AB 32—“The Global Warming Final Solutions Act". When I read something like that it makes me think, this guy is stupid and doesn't know what he is talking about. All he is running off of is emotion, not facts and logic.
