BOYCOTT ARIZONA! JUST Another Day in Paradise - Arizona, the land of AH SHIT! The Rantings of a Mad Woman

Concerning the recent signing of Arizona's SB 1070 by the governor, Jan Brewer, I am informing you that:

1. I have cancelled attendance to one convention being held in Tempe this month as well as 2 other meetings through the year to be held in Phoenix and Tucson.

2. I will not purchase anything from any retail or wholesale dealer, distributor or any company based in Arizona whether it be goods or services.

3. I have promises from family and friends to follow suit and will continue to work hard to bring strong economic pressure on the state of Arizona through full boycott as long as the state CONTINUES to promote blatant racial profiling and discriminatory actions against immigrants and citizens that are being singled out by the recent legislation.

The action of the government run by Governor Brewer is deplorable.

Since the state's representatives have no respect for human rights, those of us who do will cease to acknowledge the existence of the state by refusing to travel, through, or in (even layovers) Arizona; purchase anything from its businesses; or acknowledge sporting events, conferences, meetings or any other events based in the state until the state removes this heinous law from its books and works to restore human rights and understanding as a priority.

  1. Arizona can pass race base laws, pass Birthers laws and the state can continue to boycott Martin Luther King Day, well the rest of the Country can boycott the state of Arizona and spank them where it hurts them the most their pocket book. Their phony patriotism is sickening, they are just racists going by another name. We all know you are just itching to put a sheet on their head? Let’s face it the Republicans had eight years to deal with health care, immigration, climate change and financial oversight and governance and they failed. It appears that the Republican Party is only good at starting wars (two in eight years, with fat contracts to friends of Cheney/Bush) but not at winning wars as seen by the continuing line of body bags that keep coming home. The Republicans party will continue turned inward to their old fashion obstructionist party (and their Confederacy appreciation roots) because they continue to allow a small portions (but very loud portion) of their party of “birthers, baggers and blowhards” to rule their party. I will admit that this fringe is very good at playing “Follow the Leader” by listening to their dullard leaders, Beck, Hedgecock, Hannity, O’Reilly, Rush, Savage, Sarah Bailin, Orly Taitz, Victoria Jackson, Michele Bachmann and the rest of the Blowhards and acting as ill programmed robots (they have already acted against doctors that perform abortions). The Birthers and the Tea party crowd think they can scare, intimidate and force others to go along with them by comments like “This time we came unarmed”, let me tell you something not all ex-military join the fringe militia crazies who don’t pay taxes and run around with face paint in the parks playing commando, the majority are mature and understand that the world is more complicated and grey than the black and white that these simpleton make it out to be and that my friend is the point. The world is complicated and people like Hamilton, Lincoln, and Roosevelt believed that we should use government a little to increase social mobility, now it’s about dancing around the claim of government is the problem. The sainted Reagan passed the biggest tax increase in American history and as a result federal employment increased, but facts are lost when mired in mysticism and superstition. For a party that gave us Abraham Lincoln, it is tragic that the ranks are filled with too many empty suits and the crazy Birthers who have not learned that the way our courts work is that you get a competent lawyer, verifiable facts and present them to a judge, if the facts are real and not half baked internet lies, then, and only then, do you proceed to trial. The Birthers seem to be having a problem with their so called “facts”. Let’s face it no one will take the Birthers seriously until they win a case, but until then, you will continue to appear dumb, crazy or racist, or maybe all three. I heard that Orly Taitz now wants to investigate the “Republican 2009 Summer of Love” list: Assemblyman, Michael D. Duvall (CA), Senator John Ensign (NV), Senator Paul Stanley (TN), Governor Mark Stanford (SC), Board of Ed Chair, and Kristin Maguire AKA Bridget Keeney (SC), she wants to re-establish a family values party, that’s like saying that the Catholic Church cares about the welling being of children in their care, too late for that.

  2. I agree that AZ is ridiculously callous in their treatment of "other" (anyone not white enough, christian enough, wealthy enough).
    That is why I am supporting full boycott of all things "zonie". As far as I am concerned, they do not exist.
    That includes McCain and his flip-flopping between sides on every issue.
    Please stay tuned...I appreciate the feedback and the commentary...

    RE; the former military personnel - I am a major supporter of those who stood to give their life when the country under Bush & Co used them for cannon fodder...many returned to form VoteVets, Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans Against the War, and joined with their families in MFSO, GoldStar, etc.
    They are standing strong to shout "NOT in MY country" and are not standing for the War crimes committed in their name. They are the true heros.
    I have friends who returned to fight against the oppression of those in the Middle East, those stolen from their homes and tortured in order to set the intel to excuse the war and those who were abused just for the sake of abusing.

    Please keep coming by..
    I respect feedback given honestly and openly and welcome the discussion.
    Namaste
