Breakfast Scramble

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Arizona to Dumbo:Arizona immigration law: Are you listening, Mr. President? [1]

A brain is horrible thing to waste, from Jim Hoft, Gateway Pundit [2]:

Today democrats Barack Obama and Joe Biden, along with Democratic Senators Jay Rockefeller and Robert Byrd, and Democratic Governor Joe Manchin III held a memorial/rally for the 29 miners who perished in the nation’s worst mining disaster in 25 years [3] earlier this month.

During the 2008 election Barack Obama admitted that his cap and trade bill would kill the coal industry. Today at the coal miners memorial in West Virginia he praised the coal miners for the energy they bring to America.

Dumbo wanted to kill the coal industry before he wanted to save coal miner’s lives.

Professor William A. Jacobson, on the Arizona immigration law, Legal Insurrection [4]:

The Governor of Arizona just signed a bill which, in the words of opponents, is the equivalent of the Japanese internment during WWII, the Nazi Nuremberg [5] laws, and a host of other racist or allegedly racist wrongs which have been committed since the dawn of mankind. Cassy Fiano [6] has a good roundup of the reaction.

I then did something almost no one else has done. Certainly not the people claiming the bill is racist. I actually read the bill [7], not just the news reports.

The bill does raise public policy issues as to whether we really want to enforce the immigration laws, but it is not racist.
