Turns out DHS may not cooperate with the Arizona law. Hosenball reports:
Amid the outrage about Arizona’s strict new immigration law, a pivotal question remains: how will the Obama administration respond? Only the feds can deport a person, which means that Arizona will need Department of Homeland Security cooperation to carry out local law. But don’t bet on the state getting it. A DHS spokesperson says the issue is under “review.” But two administration officials, who asked for anonymity to discuss internal DHS matters, tell NEWSWEEK the department has already signaled to Arizona police that it will most likely detain and deport only violent criminals. Everyone else will get a written notice requesting that they appear for a future hearing—warnings that some immigration officers call “run letters” because recipients so rarely show up.
The Auraria Police Department advises that there is no ongoing threat to the campus community and no one was injured after a handgun was accidentally discharged at approximately 10:13 a.m. in a South Classroom women’s restroom. The handgun was discharged from a stall in the women’s restroom, approximately four inches above the floor. The bullet lodged into the drywall. Auraria police officers are attempting to locate a possible witness to this incident. The witness is described as a white female, 18-21, approximately 5’5”, blonde hair in a pony tail, wearing a blue plaid shirt. Please contact the campus police at 303-___-5000 or in AD 110. Campus police urges everyone to use caution on or off campus and to stay aware of their surroundings at all times. Please report any suspicious activity or suspicious persons to the Auraria Campus Police Department.
about a month ago we had a string of crazy crimes on campus all within a week. two kids were stabbed at 8am in the dorms, apparently over a drug dispute. the next day a girl was mugged at 3pm pretty much in the middle of campus; the guy punched her in the stomach and took her purse. two days later some students were mugged at gunpoint at the burger king across from campus. i suppose that’s what happens when your campus is in the middle of downtown.
but this new one is just…bizarre. a handgun just…went off? in a bathroom? at 10 am? ooohkay. and i love the witness description. an 18-21 year old blond girl? on a college campus? NO WAY! hey campus police, you just described about a third of the campus population.

it’s way too long so i won’t subject you to it. but essentially this charlie reese guy is saying that all the “problems” that politicians campaign against are actually their own creations.
Have you ever wondered, if both the Democrats and the Republicans are against deficits, WHY do we have deficits? Have you ever wondered, if all the politicians are against inflation and high taxes, WHY do we have inflation and high taxes? You and i don’t propose a federal budget. The president does.
blahblahblah. it’s all very libertarian. i don’t whole-heartedly disagree with it. i mean, yes, many if not most politicians say one thing and then do the complete opposite. but this guy says us 300 million citizens should kick the 545 decision-making members of our government out and “clean up the mess!”
that’s not the part i’m having an issue with. ok, fine, you get started on revamping the government. good luck and all. what i do have an issue with is how the email ends. he lists a bunch of taxes that we have to pay: building permit tax, marriage license tax, gasoline tax, etc. and then says:
Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, had the largest middle class in the world, and Mom stayed home to raise the kids. What in the hell happened? Can you spell “politicians?”
ok, now i know that history is not most people’s ‘strong subject’ in school so most people don’t remember the Gilded Age. but let me say some things. taxes existed 100 years ago. yep, crazy i know. they were not as prevalent and there were little to no regulations, but that’s how robber barons, banks and big industry were able to destroy the economy 30 years later. also, the US was not the most prosperous in the world in 1900; in fact, no one gave two shits about us until WWI. we were some meager 3rd rate power; a country across an ocean that took at least 6 weeks to get to and was filled with farmers. yes we were having rapid economic growth and were the leader in technological advances, but we were still behind. and middle class? are you fucking kidding me? this is the gilded age we’re talking about! there was no middle class, there were poor farmers, poor factory workers, poor immigrants and the insanely rich who took advantage of those below. and actually, politics at this time were incredibly corrupt; most politicians were controlled by the super-rich industrialists and financiers. not only were the democrats and republicans at a face-off, they were each experiencing deep divides within their own parties. and have we HEARD of tammany hall and boss tweed? yes, those are the kinds of politicians i really want to get back to. and the period that followed the gilded age? the progressive era. filled with regulation, creation of large government agencies and women’s suffrage. evil, socialist stuff.
i’m not even going to address that “mom stayed home” line. i don’t even want to acknowledge that it exists.
