Passion = Truth? How Jeffrey James Francis Ircink Sees The World? I love when people are passionate about something. That surging of emotion is the one honest measure of what truth is. It's a truthful display of how a person really feels about something or someone at that particular moment. That passion IS truth.

Antonin Scalia is boggled.

"...But to say, as the court does, the Arizona contradicts federal law by enforcing applications of the Immigration Act that the president declines to enforce boggles the mind."
- Justice Antonin Scalia

The United States Supreme Court ruled on Arizona's tough immigration law by throwing out 3 of the 4 provisions:  1) AZ cannot require illegal immigrants to obtain or carry immigration registration papers, 2) AZ cannot make it a state offense for an illegal immigrant to seek work or hold a job, and 3) AZ cannot arrest suspected illegal immigrants without warrants.

The 4th provision the Supreme Court ruled IN FAVOR of - AZ police are allowed to check a person's immigration status while enforcing other laws.

That last one still has immigration advocacy groups in a snit as they say it leads to profiling. It may - but the profiling aspect is something left to local law enforcement officials to deal with, not the law itself. For instance, the law in Wisconsin states you cannot sell cigarettes or alcohol to a minor (under 21). However, it is certainly plausible for a convenience store, for example, to illegally sell cigarettes or alcohol to a minor. That accountability lies with the convenience store, NOT with the provisions of the law.

Regardless, even the US Supreme Court ruling on this last provision may be a mute point as the Obama administration just suspended immigration agreements with AZ police.

How's dem apples? What an ignorant president we have.
