Oil, Immigration, Romanoff: Is the Obama Administration Falling In any other month, having a meeting with the Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer about her state's controversial immigration law might seem like the biggest political land mine of the day. But not for President Obama, who not only has the worst oil spill in U.S. history to deal with but faces growing criticism of the White House's past dealings with potential Senate candidates.

Speaking at a naturalization ceremony for 24 active-duty service members in the Rose Garden, he called for a federal overhaul of immigration laws, which Congressional leaders signaled they were preparing to take up soon, to avoid “irresponsibility by others.” The Arizona law, he added, threatened “to undermine basic notions of fairness that we cherish as Americans, as well as the trust between police and our communities that is so crucial to keeping us safe.” The law, which proponents and critics alike said was the broadest and strictest immigration measure in generations, would make the failure to carry immigration documents a crime and give the police broad power to detain anyone suspected of being in the country illegally.

Our Last Minute Adult Costumes: Pregnant Skeleton and Matching Husband |... My husband and I usually scrape up scraps of something to wear as a costume before going to any Halloween party each year. We love to dress up and we love to celebrate……but any costumes for us just seem to get set aside until the very last minute. I was thinking that being pregnant for Halloween could be a fun thing to work around. So I googled ideas a couple of days ago……looking for something that would be easy enough to do last minute. Then I remembered that last year, I had seen a particular homemade costume online (one was even in the virtual costume parade last year……..thanks Wendy!) So, then, the hard part. Finding a template. Aaaaggh, nothing…….so much for saving some time last minute. ;) So I sketched something out, tried my hand at freezer paper stenciling (now I understand the craze of freezer paper stenciling) and came up with this: The pregnant skeleton costume. . No more hiding, baby girl…….we can all see you now. And of course, my husband wanted in on the fun. Right?

Obama Sides Against America RUSH: Where are we? We have a federal government that refuses to enforce federal immigration law and a state that is. The president ought to just come out and say right now, "Look, even though I took an oath to uphold the Constitution and the law of the land, I'm not going to. I don't give a damn about the people of Arizona or the people in any of the border states. I don't give a damn about the people of this country generally. "I can raise your taxes as much as I want. Barack Obama is siding against us. RUSH: When a president, by his actions and words, makes clear that he is not going to protect the citizens of a state, it is the duty of that state to step up and protect its citizens when the president of the country refuses to do so.

Poem: Arizona Immigration Law & Senator John McCain - Salem-News Apr-28-2010 13:50 Poetry by Luke Easter "As a former marine I am honored by your call to duty & sacrifice, But you and no one alive should deny any minority a better life." (LOS ANGELES) - What do you think of John McCain's politics? The act of singling out people on a border with a Hispanic country and somehow managing to do this without racial profiling, is viewed as a cruel fantasy by people of color in Arizona who wish to maintain a degree of privacy and dignity.
