Last week The Arizona Diamondbacks play the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field. During the series protesters rallied against the Arizona Immigration Law in front of the ball park, Now this is not about the law that was passed.

Getting A Little Disgusted At Times

I haven’t done much as far as the blogs over the last few weeks. I’ve been busy with various duties at home and taking my Mom to the doctors and such. It’s been hard to sit down and just write as I had hoped I would be able to do. I have some time in […]

Some Last Thoughts On Obama Inauguration

I know that the Inauguration was over a week ago, but I’ve been busy with a number of things and haven’t had a chance to write down any thoughts on the day or what it means to me. Besides all the History that the day implied, there was a personal note that I thought about […]

Immagration and a True American Response

First, let us have a little background. Immigration laws set up in the 1920’s did not address the problem of immigration from Mexico. One reason was, because few came from Mexico and second because the area that they settled was in the Southwest, little settled until the 1960’s on. As people moved for health and […]
