i’m too lazy to find any statistics or articles about the dramatically shrinking middle-class in the US. this cartoon does a good enough job for a saturday, though. i saw it a couple days ago and, although it’s from a past administration, nothing much has changed. in addition, the Senate walked out for Memorial Day recess yesterday without telling the Congress. Democrats arguing for another extension of unemployment benefits found out during the discussion that the Senate had already bailed. yet another Senate Democrat fail. fucking assholes.

i don’t really want to get into it too much because it’s really depressing to talk about, but the oil spill in the gulf is really, really horrible. with the effects on the wildlife and on the ecosystems, the oceans, the gulfstream running along florida and up the east coast, not to mention the 11 guys that died in the initial explosion and the many, many people whose livelihoods depend on shrimping and fishing in the gulf, i honestly can’t even read another article, watch another news story or look at another picture of the effects there. it’s just really a bummer. our clusterfuck of a government had better damn well make sure BP pays for ever red cent of cleanup of this shit, for the next fucking century.

an Arizona arizona radio station, KTAR, is reporting that j.d. hayworth, who is running for john mccain’s senate seat, is demanding an apology from the Phoenix Suns for wearing their “Los Suns” jerseys in last night’s NBA playoff game. from KTAR:
“For [Suns General Manager] Steve Kerr to make comparisons with this law with Nazi Germany is beyond the pale,” he said. “He should apologize, that has no basis in fact.”…
“Does he [Robert Sarver] want a bunch of people showing up tonight, basically walking into the arena without tickets, taking the best seats in the arena for tonight’s game, demanding free food and drinks and then after the game demanding unfettered access to the players,” he asked of the team’s owner, “of course not.”
Hayworth said it is a shame the Suns diverted attention away from what he said is a great playoff series.
i call BULLSHIT on everything this guy said. as Seth Meyers noted a couple weeks ago, there isn’t anything more Nazi than the phrase, “show me your papers.” the objectification of the Jewish people in Nazi Germany began with their de facto then official classification as second-class citizens. Arizona’s new law makes second-class citizens of a far vaguer group of people: anyone who subjectively seems like they might not be an American citizen. the problem with that is that five of the six immigrant classifications are legal: naturalized citizens, lawful permanent residents, refugees/asylees, immigrants with work authorizations (green cards), immigrants with Special Purpose Work Authorizations, and undocumented immigrants. yep, only the undocumented immigrants are committing any kind of crime. so i, along with everyone else who is offended by the very idea of being asked to prove that they are where they are legally, ask mr. hayworth to kindly shove it up his ass.
secondly, how exactly does wearing a jersey saying “Los Suns” offend mr. hayworth so egregiously? it’s simply a gesture to show solidarity with the community who is being unfairly targeted by the law. i truly fail to understand why he believes an apology is warranted.
thirdly, i’m infuriated at mr. hayworth’s unbelievably inept analogy: that undocumented immigrants are like people forcing their way into a game and helping themselves to the best of everything. that is HARDLY the case with illegal immigrants, especially the Latino and Hispanic people who are being targeted by this law. how are these undocumented immigrants getting “the best seats” in our society? how are they getting anything they don’t deserve here? what they get when they come into the U.S. as undocumented immigrants (NOT as “aliens”) is exploited by businesses looking for cheap labor, sub-legal wages in jobs where they are terribly overworked, absolutely no public aid for even their most basic needs, and taxes taken out of any legal check they get to pay for government services that they cannot access. j.d. hayworth, as an entitled, priviledged, WEALTHY, arrogant, white man, in no way has any reason on his side when he talks about undocumented immigrants taking “the best” of anything.
j.d. hayworth is right up there with john boehner and mitch mcconnell in my book. as far as i’m concerned, they can choke on it.

if this new law doesn’t smack of the first steps the Nazis took towards the Holocaust, i don’t know what does. i mean, what’s next–are we going to herd all the Spanish-speaking people in the U.S. into the ghettoes? it’s un-fucking-believable. so the cops can stop anyone they suspect of not being in the U.S. legally–are we really expected to believe that they’ll stop WHITE PEOPLE in their efforts to enforce this law? are they going to stop pasty-faced blonde women with impeccable makeup wearing khakis and loafers driving shiny SUVs, or will 99.999999% percent of the people targeted going to be dark-skinned, dark-eyed people riding in rusty old pickups or mini-vans?
funnily enough, an Arizona man working as a truck driver was asked for his “papers” at a weigh station on Wednesday, before the bill was signed into law. he showed people his commercial driver’s license AND his social security number, but he was still handcuffed and taken to the Immigration and Customs Enforcement office in Phoenix. he had to call his wife at her job to get his birth certificate and other documents to bring in so he could be released. obviously, he and his wife are angry about what happened to him and he’s alleging racial profiling. i don’t have to carry around my birth certificate or social security card–why should anyone?
and, on top of all of this ridiculousness, to hear people saying that undocumented immigrants can be identified by their SHOES and their HAIR??? apparently, if i look, in someone’s subjective opinion, dirty or if my shoes are old and don’t fit perfectly, i might be brought in to prove my citizenship. what a bunch of entitled motherfuckers behind this law. fucking christ.
