The latest polls show that more than 80 percent of Americans are dissatisfied with the way the economy is headed.
Another poll shows a majority of Americans —- more than 60 percent, in fact —- approve of Arizona’s tough new law on illegal immigration, even though those polled agreed that it would result in racial profiling.
The two go hand-in-hand: When the economy is bad, the people get angry —– and have little or no tolerance for injustice to others if it doesn’t directly effect them.
Arizona is releasing even more white heat: Gov. Jan Brewer, who is not going to fare very well in history, signed into law banning ethnic studies in her state’s schools.
States and cities are boycotting having anything to do financially with Arizona because of the controversial law.
“By the time you get to Phoenix you’ll be arrested
But only if you look like you don’t belong.
Your kids will only study history of white people,
ethnic purity in the curriculum is comin’ on strong.
“By the time you get to Phoenix
McCain will be running —-
from anything that could find him trailin.’
We all know the old coot should get the boot
for turning coward and giving us Palin.”
Idea for a right wing-nut radio song that could be a hit in Arizona: “Those People” (sung to the tune “Short People” by Randy Newman):
got no reason
no reason to be here.
Those people, those people
we gotta learn ’em some fear.
They got brown skin and shifty eyes
we don’t want our women
with no sombrero-wearing guys.
Don’t want no ‘those people’ ’round here.
got no reason
got no reason to be here.
We don’t care if they
can manacure a lawn
or clean our houses
from dusk to dawn.
Don’t want no ‘those people’ ’round here.”
