Obama wants to be a hero. To some he is, even before he's done anything.

I'm afraid that's not the only ball he's going to get rolling. He's going to start something, and in the end he'll regret making some of these heroic decisions.

What Obama is about to do, is set off the "Wake-up too late" call.

By the end of his first term, some of the people who praise him now, will hate him or disrespect him for the consequences that will follow some of his dicisions.

Somehow they seem to be able to determine ethnicity without your groundbreaking knowledge on race and appearance.

FYI: my step sister gets mistaken for 'Latina' quite frequently due to her dark skin--------she is of Irish and Italian lineage.

There isn't a vehicle on the road today without low-high tinted windows. Unless someone is driving with their windows down, it would be impossible to determine anyones skin color.

The one's complaining are nothing but extreme racists who love to throw accusations.
Joe Arpaio is a hard man to beat.

I've sent him my support.

Once again I'm not talking about the illegals!! I'm talking about the US citizens that have been violated by Joe.

I'm also not talking about a border checkpoint, I'm talking about sweeps that target anyone who looks remotely Hispanic.

Anyways, it will be interesting to see how Joe deals with the new heat that will surely come from the Obama Admin...

Good Luck Joe...hope you kept some pink underwear for yourself...

And the deepening recession may cause ICE to really 'crack the whip' against the illegals---------Sheriff Joe or not.

Similar operations were conducted during both the Great Depression as well as the 1950's.

Possible on the crackdown (Which I'm ok with) but I don't think Obama is going to give his stamp of approval on any racial profiling. If anything his focus will be on the border and stopping people there.

He won't be allowing people like Joe to violate the constitution... It is just not going to happen with him in office...Just look at his team that is shaping up. Clinton, Richardson, Napolitano (her position can make Joe's life a living hell), Holder, Cuéllar.

Windows? I think you'd be able to tell a lot just by the lowering kit, fugly oversized wheels, gaudy paint job, and religious window decal on the back.
