I read in the other Valley paper a couple of days ago that ATF was doin gthe same sort of thing under the prevuious (Bush) administration - that is letting the smugglers buy guns and let them go to Mexico. Where were these sheriffs then? ohm yeah, they are Republicans like Bush - now that there is a Democrat in the White House what has been done in the past is wrong - much like when they criticized Clinton/Gore for campaign solicitations ove rthe phone - once they were told they were doing the exact same thing Ronald Reagan did, they shut up. So sheriffs if it was OK for Bush ATF to do it, whay is it wrong for Obama ATF to do it? what has changed?Oct 7, 2011
Peasrce needs to go back to school and study history - if there is one to remain open in his district after he gets all of the non-whites kicked out:
One occurred as far back as 1898, when the high
court said the U.S.-born child of Chinese immigrants who were not
citizens was entitled to citizenship
That, he said, makes no sense.
- Yes it does. Chinese could come to this country, they worked on the transcontinental railroad as labors. However, federal law said chinese could not be citizens through naturalization. they were here legally, just couldn't get citizenship.
Native Americans, he said, were not
considered citizens until congressional action in the 20th century
despite the fact it was clear they were born within the boundaries
of the United States.
There are still some words in the Constitution that seem anti -Indian - how would he like it if they decided to apply the words that say: except Indians, not taxed. The other reason might well be that the "reservations" are considered nations and thus exempt from US juridiction. Or they might have been considered more as jails where people are denied certain rights.
Now where does he stand on things like people born on overseas military bases? John McCain was born in the Panama Canal zone and 2 years after his birth he was granted citizenship - natural born no less. Is he really a natural born citizen? Or how about the guy in WA recently at 95 found out he was not a US citrizen because his American born parents (can't be proved because they were born before the 1890's) had him in Canada - and he even served in the military in WWII. Is he here illegally?
What i would really like to see is an investigation about Mr. Pearce's living arrangements. He seems to despise non-whites something fierce, yet if you were to go through his district - near Fiesta Mall - it would seem he is in the minority. does he really reside there given his attitudes?
