Up for Debate: Arizona immigration law undermined

Tuesday, June 26, 2012 at 12:40am

Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer lashed out at the Obama administration on CNN following an announcement that the federal government would not support the enforcement of Arizona's immigration law — an announcement that followed a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that parts of that law were unconstitutional. Do you agree with the court, the administration or Brewer? Also, are you surprised the court left alone the right of police to check immigration status while enforcing other laws? Do you believe that too may be in jeopardy?

LONER.......As a matter of fact, I have a dinner reservation this evening at TABLE3 and will enjoy "Foie gras on French flatbread" as my appetizer.

By: Loner on 6/26/12 at 8:18

The Rasp don't need no steenking Spellcheck, his spelling is "pretty much close to perfect". He wants to show off his skills...he worked hard to master the English language...his work ethic is pretty close to perfection too....let the man strut his stuff....I love the Rasp.

By: yogiman on 6/26/12 at 8:18

Ridiculing someone for a misspelled word is poor ethics, gdiafarte. Expecially since you aren't constant "no error" speller.

Anyone who ridicules someone else is ridiculous.

By: gdiafante on 6/26/12 at 8:19

Good god, yogi, pay attention. He pointed out my misspelling, I pointed out his hypocrisy. It's really above your head so don't try.

Rasp.. you being from ''The Nations'' I'm guessing you went to Cohn high school.
I went to Issac Litton, a much superior school to the lowly Cohn.
Shirley you would agree, my blood runs bluer than yours?

By: Loner on 6/26/12 at 8:22

Anyone who ridicules someone else is ridiculous......even a troll can be witty, even if by accident...got a laugh off of that one.

By: Rasputin72 on 6/26/12 at 8:23

LONER.....Your adulation for my hard earned skills makes me blush. Thank you however for taking the time to acknowledge them.

Don't you just love a forum where you can be exposed to so many different "walks of life" I know that I have learned so much about what this country has been and will become from reading these comments from the hearthland.

By: gdiafante on 6/26/12 at 8:25

I agree, Raspy. Being on this forum is much more agreeable than having to actually be among those different walks of life in person. Can you imagine?

**nervous laugh**

By: Loner on 6/26/12 at 8:29

Rasp: As you thoroughly enjoy that deliberately deformed goose liver on a cracker, think about how they stick a feeding hose down the caged goose's throat and then pour in the feeding slurry using the attached funnel...like pouring in tranny fluid...when the bird is filled, they tie a rubber band around its throat to keep it from puking....it's a big industry in Long Island, New York....bon apetite!

By: Rasputin72 on 6/26/12 at 8:30

SLACKER......I did go to Cohn in the 7th and 8th grade. I still have many friends from Cohn High School. My parents and grandparents all went in together to see that I had a better opportunity than they. With great sacrifice I was schooled away from Cohn High School. It changed the direction of my life. My friends from Cohn "got on" and I "went on"

By: yogiman on 6/26/12 at 8:32

Want another good laugh, Loner? Barry Soetoro still hasn't proved he's Barack Obama.

Another good laugh? Barack Obama still hasn't proved he's in office legally.

Those two should make you laugh until you cry.

Gotta go.

By: slacker on 6/26/12 at 8:33

yogi, please go take a nap.

By: Loner on 6/26/12 at 8:34

Yes, Rasp, I do love this forum...for its diversity and general civility...I thank our hosts, the Nahville City Paper....the site is relatively uncensored and it's fast and easy to navigate...it's a great free speech platform.

Finally Loner, an atrocity worth bringing to the attention of people everywhere.

LONER.......I will continue to enjoy foie gras even as the price escalates. However I would if I had the chance stop the foie gras industry dead in its tracks. As a small cottage industry in France nobody really looked at the process. Today as you mention there is enough demand that a "big" industry is emerging. Perhaps there will someday be a Supreme Court ruling on this as well.

Gdiafante.......Some days you can hang in there with anybody on this forum. Today is one of those days. You are "smokin" hot today.

Hey, I have a tee-time shortly and I will have to cut off what has been a lively exchange.

Translation- Rasp is caddying at Mccabe.

By: Loner on 6/26/12 at 8:51

The practice of producing foie gras commercially was banned in Israel a few years back...for reasons of animal rights, cruelty to animals issues etc....today, a goose in Israel has more protections from inhumanity than a Palestinian in the Occupied Territories.

New York is supposed to be a bastion of new age liberalism, humanism, etc.....but we produce truckloads of foie gras....go figure.

Golfer: Caddie, give me the fairway wood

Raspy: that's what she said

By: Loner on 6/26/12 at 8:55

Slack...shall we march on Long Island and free the geese? Or should we go in stealth, disguised as cheap alien workers...looking for jobs on a foie gras farm...but we pack hidden cameras and put the ugly video on You tube? How do we personally cash in on the noble work?

By: Loner on 6/26/12 at 8:59

LOL, Slack & GD....he may not be at the the caddy level...he may be washing balls out behind the pro shop....near the dumpster....he scrubs the used balls for the driving range part of the complex?

By: slacker on 6/26/12 at 9:05

Loner, the older caddy's at Mccabe, are treated well.
Poor Rasp is no golfer, he's a gofer.

By: Loner on 6/26/12 at 9:06

I remember Andy Griffith's TV ads for Ritz crackers...."everything is great, if it sits on a Ritz"...here's the 1977 commercial...no other ads....it's great:

And there's this 1977 Grey Poupn commercial:

Fantastic.

That's our Rasp in the first Rolls?

More like Thurston Howell lll from... ''The Nations'' lol

By: BenDover on 6/26/12 at 9:17

Historically Rasputin was like the Charles Manson to the Tzars right? I'm pretty sure that didn't end well.

By: slacker on 6/26/12 at 9:18

See ya'll later.. I have a tennis lesson with Roger Federer.

By: gdiafante on 6/26/12 at 9:20

It didn't, Ben. You can find the pic online.

By: Loner on 6/26/12 at 9:27

The original Rasputin was a mad monk with alleged supernatural powers...a mysterious womanizer....and a die-hard Czarist...that's our Rasp....great username...no disputin'...it's the mad monk Rasputin.

By: Loner on 6/26/12 at 9:35

See ya later, Slack....may your racket serve to deflect errant balls from your genitals....keep a video camera running, just in case you take one in the "groin area"....you could be a winner on America's Funniest Home Videos.

By: BenDover on 6/26/12 at 9:47

What that handle, Raspy? I mean Louis XIV or even Liberace would have better suited the opulence you portray.

By: gdiafante on 6/26/12 at 9:56

Maybe he should have the handle Disputin

Moonglow1: Rasp, is Table 3 doing well. It has great food. It was slow going when they reopened.

Thanks Loner for your agreement on corporate interests.

I'm just saying, I hear that border crossings have slowed way down. And CCA keeps the issue alive because it gets people riled up and supports more prisons which affects their bottom line. Taxpayers pay to keep CCA exec's living in style behind those gated communes.

And even McCain is disgusted with multinational money buying US elections. Crazy world really.

By: yogiman on 6/26/12 at 10:25

Well, I've had a good nap, slacker. I feel perky again so I've thrown my tin foil helmet away, Loner.

I'm gonna use one I've made to copy yours, Loner. I wanted one like the hard hat you have to fit your hard head.

Please correct me if I'm wrong, gdiafarte, but unless I misread your posts, you made the first comment to Rasputin72 about a spelling error before he made a counter comment to you.

By: Moonglow1 on 6/26/12 at 10:26

Moonglow1: P. S. Thanks to Rasp for supporting local restaurants versus "corporate food. "

By: yogiman on 6/26/12 at 10:41

The troll does not credit the sources of his rantings....does he think that we think he thought of all that by himself? A plagiarizing troll is the worst kind of internet pest, IMO.

By: gdiafante on 6/26/12 at 1:35

He thinks he's being clever...lol
