… Nice Going , DummyCrats [#Navajo Nation][#Animas River spill][#E.P.A.]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,September 27th,2015

.. the political tone – deafness of the Democrats on this one is incredible , and growing . It is also incredibly political stupid — and dangerous …

.. the Navajos are one of the largest Indian tribes [in terms of land area] in the nation . Their holdings cover parts of 4 states : Colorado [very little] , Utah [bigger] , New Mexico [much bigger still] , and , biggest of all , Arizona [huge] …

.. they obviously have several million folks who can claim Navajo ancestry . so the Navajos do give a flying fiddlers fig about what goes on back home on their ancestral lands . This environmental spill [courtesy of the ObamaCrap E.P.A. colossal blunder] effects them greatly .

.. [h/t —]..
.. [link] to the blog post ..

.. ergo , the political effect could be huge . Utah is as deep red as it gets , so that one would not be particularly be changed by this . But , you add in Nevada , where a fair number of Navajos have migrated ? Yeow , that one is up for grabs . Colorado ? The number of Navajos is small , but the rest of the state has to be watching what the Obamacraps , the E.P.A. , and the DummyCraps in general are doing …

.. then comes New mexico . The Navajo prescence there is very strong , and spreads off of their lands . It could tip other tribes also [not limited to the Hopi] , and thus New Mexico politics …

.. then comes Arizona . The Navajo prescence in Arizona is enormous , including surrounding the Hopi lands . It would not just tip Az politics in general . Right Now , Arizona is roughly ” pink , ” or leaning GOP . You piss off enough of the Indians and you can [for the Dems] kiss off Az for a generation …

… I hope the States will Go after the Feds [#illegal immigration]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Sunday,August 17th,2014

.. what is happening on the border and on the interior is immoral and outrageous . That the federal government is complicit in these procedings is evil …

.. [h/t — Newsmax]..
.. [link] to the blog news ..

.. I hope that the states group together and go after the Feds . The current lawsuit by border patrol agents against the Federal Government [Crane v Napolitano would be the perfect vehicle . The states could join in as plaintiffs , if the border patrol union agreed . if the Feds (our Feds , not the Mexican Federales) are stupid enough to appeal this critical legal case , then they deserve every bit of legal hell that they would get from the judiciary .

.. Right now , Crane is at the Fifth Appeallate Circuit , where the Government lost . They have a certain amount of time to decide what they want to do . Appealing would be dangerous . Not appealing would be even more dangerous . So , it is damned if you do , and damned if you don’t ..

… What are They Thinking ?!?! [#dumping illegal immigrant kids in Az]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,June 25th,2014

.. you heard it right .

.. the Feds [no , not the Mexican Federales] (our Feds) are dumping illegals at bus stops in Arizona .

.. I have always had an innate belief in Sheriff Joe Arpaio . He is one tough customer . He is an old – school lawman . He does not mess around . He tells it how it is … My belief is even stronger now …

.. [h/t — Newsmax]..

.. Arizona ‘ s counties are as large as you can imagine . They are , on average , around 9,000 to 9,600 square miles each . Arizona has 15 counties , unlike my home state of Ohio [of similar size] , which has 88 . Their sheriffs and their departments have a lot of ground to patrol , so they are wired into stuff like this . Ohio is in the Great Lakes , and borders Canada , which is peaceful . Arizona is in the Southwest , and borders Mexico . Their border is not peaceful , not at all . So , guess who I believe ?

.. the Feds ? , or Sheriff Joe ?

.. easy call –> Sheriff Joe Arpaio , by a mile …

… Outrageous !! [Elane Photography case ruling // NM] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,August 23rd,2013

.. this one is truly disgusting and outrageous , folks . It is regarding a local photography business (Elane Photography) in New Mexico . Yes , they are a business that does business in the public sphere .

.. No , they are not compelled to violate their religious beliefs . Or , they should not be compelled to do so . The First Amendment to the Constitution (religious freedom) trumps the attempt at compulsion that New Mexico is attempting in their so – called “Human Rights Act.” They may compel anti – discrimination for gays and lesbians , but they cannot force folks to do business with them in violation of their religious beliefs , plain and simple .

… from Breitbart Media ‘ s Big Government …

On Thursday, the New Mexico Supreme Court ruled that religious wedding photographers could be forced to photograph same-sex weddings. “When Elane Photography refused to photograph a same-sex commitment ceremony, it violated the [New Mexico Human Rights Act, or NMHRA] in the same way as if it had refused to photograph a wedding between people of different races,” the court ruled unanimously.

The court said that Elaine Huguenin, the photographer, had discriminated against gay customers for not photographing their weddings, even though she had said she would be happy to take their pictures in different contexts. The court also refused any differentiation whatsoever between homosexual and heterosexual conduct under the law, despite the fact that same-sex marriage is not licensed in the state of New Mexico. Justice Edward Chavez wrote, “The difficulty in distinguishing between status and conduct in the context of sexual orientation discrimination is that people may base their judgment about an individual’s sexual orientation on the individual’s conduct. To allow discrimination based on conduct so closely correlated with sexual orientation would severely undermine the purpose of the NMHRA.” In other words, orientation and conduct are so intertwined that to discriminate against activity would be to discriminate against the person — an odd line of logic, given that it would then follow that discriminating against religious activity would constitute discrimination on the basis of religion, making the court’s logic self-defeating.

Justice Richard Bosson wrote, in concurrence, that the Huguenins are “compelled by law to compromise the very religious beliefs that inspire their lives.” He concluded, “The Huguenins are free to think, to say, to believe, as they wish; they may pray to the God of their choice and follow those commandments in their personal lives wherever they lead. The Constitution protects the Huguenins in that respect and much more. But there is a price, one that we all have to pay somewhere in our civic life.” That “compromise,” he wrote, “is part of the glue that holds us together as a nation, the tolerance that lubricates the varied moving parts of us as a people. That sense of respect we owe others, whether or not we believe as they do, illuminates this country, setting it apart from the discord that afflicts much of the rest of the world. In short, I would say to the Huguenins, with the utmost respect: it is the price of citizenship.”

It may be the price of citizenship for the left, but it is the polar opposite of what the founders stood for when they wrote the First Amendment protecting freedom of religion. This is state-sponsored tyranny at its finest.
