I don’t know what they’re putting in the water these days, but I’m beginning to wonder if the whole world has gone nuts! I just don’t understand some of the things that are going on.
Georgia recently enacted a tough new law on immigration enforcement, similar to the measures Arizona enacted last year, which allows police to question the immigration status of suspects, punishes people who transport or harbor illegal immigrants in the state, or use false identification to get a job in Georgia. And it requires businesses to use the federal E-Verify program to ensure their employees are eligible to work in the United States.
In response to Georgia’s new law, Mexico, Brazil, Honduras, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, Argentina, Chile, Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Peru have filed court papers in support of the Anti-Defamation Leagues efforts to prevent Georgia from enforcing immigration laws. Illegal aliens and their supporters claim Georgia’s new law will overburden public schools, jails and hospitals. (As opposed to the illegal aliens who are already overburdening America’s schools, jails, and hospitals.)
Since when do foreign countries have the right to tell American states what laws they can enact and enforce? How about if Arizona or Georgia files a lawsuit against Mexico and those other countries for not stopping their people from entering our country illegally?
Has the whole world gone nuts? I just don’t understand it.
On another topic, just as dumb, in Big Bear, California, the new high school yearbooks have come out. Only after the books were distributed did anybody notice that in the background of one photo, taken at a school dance, a 17 boy has his hand inside a 15 year old girl’s clothing. Yeah, the camera caught him copping a feel.
The young couple had been going steady for over a year, and apparently the girl didn’t object, she didn’t file a complaint, and nobody knew about the “incident’ until the yearbooks came out.
But suddenly the police are involved, and have identified the girl as a “victim,” and the boy as a “perpetrator.” Huh?
Now, if there is anybody out there who can honestly say they didn’t engage in a little bit of teenage hanky panky growing up, you’re a much better person than I am. Or a liar. I’ll admit it, I did some “perpetrating” in my randy high school days. Heck, I had a date with a girl named Debbie one time where I think I may have been the “victim!”
Was it appropriate to be doing something like that on the floor at a school dance? No. When I was in high school, that’s what parking lots were for. But then again, we had big old Chevys and Fords back in my day. You could do yourself some serious physical harm getting frisky in the back seat of a modern Hyundai or Mini Cooper.
But even dumber than trying to make inappropriate teenage groping a crime, the police have gone even further. They have demanded that students return the yearbooks, so the picture can be covered up, and threatened that if they don’t, they can be charged with a felony – possession of child pornography!
Hey, how about charging the school district with distributing child porn? It makes about the same amount of sense, doesn’t it?
Really, has the whole world gone nuts?
