US government

Alright I live down here (NOLA) and all I can say is this - does anybody besides myself notice the smell of Facism that has started to overtake America?

Personally, I don't like how the US is being run currently. The fact that the government has grown substantially bigger with all these social programs and the afghanistan war hasn't ended yet. Just my

Yes, I find it funny that a government founded on the principle of remaining small and allowing states to mandate their own law (check your 10th Amendment) is now the largest governing body in the world.

It seems like the government thinks they can take better care of you than you can of yourself, wrong.

I've heard of that bill, some states are mimicing that of the Arizona immigration enforcement.

yeah, i live in Az and i'm pretty irritated by that new bill that will take in effect in 2 days. I don't know how else to put but racial profiling people, but they say it's not that. Please tell me what an immigrant looks like then?

I tell you, sometimes the world makes me mad

Unfortunately, profiling happens every day. And I hate to put it this way, but every single one of us is at fault and does it. Aside from the immigration you tend to profile every person you meet. I know all to well how the law does it. Long hair and being in a rock and roll band has had me face down on pavement while cops called out drug dogs and all kinds of bs. And as far as immigration goes, well I tend to see 3-4 bus loads get sent back to the border weekly. Point is profiling, while wrong is a part of everyday life and almost human nature.

I get where you're coming from, but this bill just makes racial profiling legal. I know it wouldn't the first time a cop has racial profiled somebody, but this just makes it legal. They say they will take proper procedure and are signs of how one can tell if they are an illegal immigrant... BULLSHIT!!!!

This was just a stupid way, i guess i could see the fuss about illegal immigrants but i am sure there is a better way to handle it then this.

Oh I totally agree with you, profiling a person should only be done with reasonable suspicion, in my case I'm a long haired musician, of course they are gonna check me over for drugs I totally understand that, reasonable suspicion based on my looks and stereotypes. But at the same time, had I been wearing a polo and slacks I doubt I would have received half the hassle.

What this has essentially legalized is racial profiling. Cops will be pulling over every latino person they see to check for citizenship or green cards.
