Without a doubt the stupidest thing I have ever seen is the suit Mexico is trying today to bring against Arizona because their S 1070 will cause all kinds of racial profiling. Stupid because the law says that racial profiling can't be done.

Well the stupid part of this suit is the fact that they have no standing to make a request like this of a United States federal court. If the birthers, most of whom are citizens, have no standing how can Mexico have it? Which of the lawyers here want to explain that to me. If our voters have no standing where does Mexico get it?

Even Anne Coulter says the birthers are nuts. Bad comparison.

Good Lord. You don't understand political gestures at all, do you?

They KNOW they don't have standing but it's about principle.

Can't believe I need to explain this.

Too bad that Mexico doesn't put as much effort into equalizing their own society/country. Even worse, too bad that the sycophantic press in this country doesn't call Mexican leadership on their hypocrisy.

Funny how perception is. I consider SB1070 the stupidest thing I've seen state government do in my lifetime. Pass a bill that alienates an entire culture of American Society for very minimal results. Create a climate of hate and fear mongering for what? Maybe 2000, 3000 illegal immigrants taken off the streets of Arizona. Like trying to kill an elephant with a fly swatter.

Sounds like you're really afraid that the law will do what it is supposed to do.
