Dazed and Confused

Dazed and Confused
Al Ritter

I am so confused about our government’s latest legal problems. The first problem was when the DOJ dropped charges against the New Black Panthers for voter intimidation in Philadelphia in 2008, and yet even with overwhelming evidence in the way of video, they get released. Mean while in Arizona, because of Arizona’s sb 1070 anti-illegal legislation, the DOJ sees fit to sue to revoke a law that only mirrors the federal law, so that they may enforce a law that the federal government refuses to enforce.

Talking heads from the Obama Administration have claimed that Arizona is safer now than it’s ever been. What they should have said is that the federal government has more border personnel than they have ever had, but it’s still not enough. The feds have given up federal park areas to drug lords from Mexico, not 30 miles from Phoenix, but keep telling us that America is safe.

The third item is the federal judge who rescinded the moratorium on drilling in the Gulf has given stern warning to the Administration against reinstituting the moratorium. This has been decided in federal court, and yet the Administration wants to strong arm their way to achieve the results THEY want at any cost.

For a Whitehouse that employs more lawyers than any Administration in the past, it sure seems to me that they are flaunting their power and daring anyone to challenge them. The sad part in all these challenges is that there is a 50/50 chance that either side will win based on whether or not the cases will be heard by a liberal or conservative judge. America has been so divided by this President, whatever happened to the man who was supposed to bring the nation together?
