Being both multi-racial and the product of at least one illegal immigrant (an illegal Latino no less), the subject is not comfortable for me. I harbour no animosity for my Latino cousins, but this is something entirely different now.
We actually have militarized and military-equipped drug gangs trying to take over parts of our nation. This makes it not a matter of political correctitude or our historic openess to the persecuted or the immigrant, this is war against our people and our nation.
We in Arizona have seen the in-effects of several presedencies and our own senators (McCain and Kyle) pander endlessly while nothing gets done. The only ones who have shown real responsibility and creativity and the power of their office so far have been our sherrifs and to a much lesser extent, our new governor, Jan Brewer. Who along with our illustrious senators, continue to plead for federal assistance while our land and people are being taken over.
I HAVE WRITTEN BEFORE that our sherrifs do and can continue to train and raise posses. The training programs between our sheriffs and the community are historic and legally unassailable. They are also successful.
Our Arizona constitution defines all persons between 18-45 as being PART OF OUR STATE MILITIA and our governor can activate it and disband it AT WILL.
And we're Arizona. We have more than enough firepower among us. With proper training and organization, we might realistically avoid what the rest of the pansy nation is scared of, that a bunch of us wingnuts will go shoot each other with our crazy guns that hurt people. I did emphasize training, didn't I?
But heck, let's start now.
So my plea to every reader: if you know Babeu, please explain this to him and encourage him to get in touch with me on the subject, my contact info to be had through Lacey or Vallejo or Hancock.
I am a man of peace. But where my people are threatened, I am obliged to try to protect them. I am loathe to say these words, and I must hold love first and foremost in my heart, but in this, since there is nobody else, I must give the words.
Brothers, our land is under attack. WHO IS WITH ME?
I am a small man and not in great shape. My camper and my pitbull are with me, WHO ELSE IS WITH ME?
IF THE CALL COMES FROM OUR SHERIFFS OR OUR GOVERNOR, WHO BESIDES ME WILL ANSWER? WHO WILL GO WITH ME?
Because if nobody better qualified does, I'm gonna have to start getting up people's noses. And when I do, I'd like to know I'm not some dick swinging in the wind. But hell boys, I'm gonna go ahead and get involved. There's just not much of a choice in my mind. Oil gushers in the gulf are bad but our people getting treated like pinatas by paramilitary forces in our parks? I hate to be judgemental but there's priorities and there's the priorities you can do something about.
I think we have to fight to maintain our own security and pray like hell the idiots in DC legalize pot. That would be saving lives. But again, don't get caught up in extraneous arguments here Arizona. This is an emergency and it's getting bigger.
