Over the Weekend

Governor Deal strikes back at reporters telling the truth. Anyone that is surprised by Governor Deal using political money to benefit his family clearly wasn’t paying attention during the election but what bothers me even more than Governor Deal’s actions are his reactions in this case. Facts are facts and politicians that don’t want facts to be exposed remind me of a something I read once. I don’t remember the source or the exact quote but it was basically,”If you don’t want people to know what you  are doing… Stop Doing It!”

Carlos Santana, musical genius and immigration moron I love Carlos Santana’s music and I am generally accepting of marketing spectacles like Major League Baseball’s “Civil Rights Game” at Turner Field Sunday. But giving a platform to ignorant hypocrites like Carlos Santana is not advancing the cause of civil rights. How dare he come to our state and criticize us for our immigration laws when Mexico’s immigration laws are draconian by comparison. I am prohibited by law from owning land in Mexico and “Foreigners who are deported from Mexico and attempt to re-enter the country without authorization can be imprisoned for up to 10 years.” Would Mr. Santana prefer we just adopt the same standards of his homeland?

And in the really important news: Atlanta Braves won 2 out of 3 from the Philthies!

  1. This Santana thing is just like when the Mexican president, Felipe Calderon, scolded Arizona’s immigration law when he spoke to Congress. I was not very happy when that happened to say the least.
