Great, now I have an overriding urge to go get a Mexican girlfriend so I can call her that in bed.

I'm sorry my life turned out like this, Mom.

I'm sure that's part of it.

The point where I was pretty sure it was going to pass was when my right-wing grandma told me she was voting for it.  In her case it was mainly because of funding for senior centers.

But anyway, she's a pretty reliable barometer for how the Republican base thinks.  I figured, correctly, if SHE was for a tax increase, it was going to pass overwhelmingly.

Also close to home: girlfriend's sister is a teacher, and she'll probably get to keep her job now.  Probably.

A nun approved a lifesaving abortion at St. Joseph's Hospital and was demoted (and possibly excommunicated.)

And according to the medical ethics director for the diocese, Rev. John Ehrich, the mother should have died.

Do you understand how terrifying the words “vibrating strap on” are for an asexual? That’s like saying “the holocaust” to a Jew.

Artists ordered to lighten the skin tones of children in multicultural mural.

I can't decide if the best quote in that article is
Quote
"We asked them to fix the shading on the children's faces," he said. "We were looking at it from an artistic view. Nothing at all to do with race."
or
Quote
"To depict the biggest picture on the building as a Black person, I would have to ask the question: Why?"

You have changed the ambience of that building to excite some kind of diversity power struggle that doesn't exist in Prescott, Arizona. And I'm ashamed of that.

I'm not entirely sure where to even begin with this.

They had black people, but they made them lighten their skin tones.

BBC did a piece on this today on NPR.

Not much new, but one moment of hilarity when they interviewed a supporter of the bill

I believe that president Obama is currently in favor of letting the illegal immigrants in... I think he knows they're the only one's who'll vote for 'im next election.

Not mentioned in the article: AG Goddard will almost certainly be Brewer's opponent in November's election.

The political advertising has started in earnest on local TV and they are honestly some of the most sickening ads I've seen in the state in a long time. The two Republican candidates seem to be competing to see which can appear the most racist without actually coming right out and saying it. It's pretty amazing to watch.

Oh Arizona!

Yeah, pretty horrifying.  Best part is Pearce's claim that people are "misunderstanding" the Fourteenth Amendment when they read "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside" to mean "All citizens born in the United States are citizens of the United States."

Of course, he's already shown his understanding of the equal protection clause to be pretty sketchy.

So, United States-born children of illegal immigrants are, obviously, "born or naturalized in the United States".

And Pearce claims that they are not necessarily citizens of the United States.

Therefore, it is clear that Pearce is arguing that they are not subject to the jurisdiction of the United States.

Fun Fact: Tea Party hates every amendment except the second.  And the tenth, when it suits their purposes.

I've been rolling this phrasing over in my head, and the question I have to ask is:

If they're not subject to US jurisdiction, whose jurisdiction ARE they subject to?

Does Mexico claim children born in the US as citizens?
