The soul has greater need of the ideal than the real for it is by the real that we exist, it is by the ideal that we live

Them that's got shall get, them that's not got lose.

That's what it's about in this country. Race and money.

If you're rich and white you're almost assured at getting your way. If you're poor and brown black yellow etc, not so much.

Arizona lost it's current bid to demonstrate how racist white people in this country actually are yesterday, at least for now.The battle will rage on, and on, and on, until the Supreme Court hears the case, And we all know that's where this is headed.

The comment boards are filled with frenzied white people posting their righteous positions. I particularly like the one from Texas that says people are routinely checked for their papers at border checkpoints, missing the point of this discussion altogether.(which Texas usually does)

But my favorite not only demonstrates the racism of the writer but drives home yet again my point about the pitiful education system in this country.

Let me bang that drum for just a minute with a fascinating quote:

"They are bleeding us dry and the President’ is letting them get away with it, with a lazy faire immigration policy of do nothing."

And with a lazy faire policy of "I've gotta go to work." we'll leave it at that for today.

And so it goes:
