This is what it took to protect a wooden sign that says "Hollywood", from a state that is close to Bankruptcy.
California : The Trust for Public Land conservation group raised $6.7 million in private funds, the state offered $3.1million, and local funds totaled $2.7 million.
Arizona: In wanting to defend its own borders, now has everyone including the president calling it a racist move, well Mr. President do your job and get that border protected, law was passed to pay for a fence that is not built yet. Was not there something about foreign and domestic in his oath. Crap even the Mexican president is calling it a racist move, but go there illegally and you are in jail for 5-10 years, kettle and pot comes to mind. And Ohio is close to passing their own version of this law. More and more states are trying to come up with their own enforcement for illegal immigrants as the Federal Government does less and less.
Atlantic Seaboard States are loosening Alcohol laws to allow more sampling in stores, Bums are seen flocking to Virginia for free samples, of course this is all for creating more revenue for these states and the companies selling alcohol. Capitalism is great and a lot of these laws are from right after prohibition ended.
I am not a government basher, to prove it here is the good move of the day for the Obama regime:
dictator Manuel Noriega is sent to France to face money laundering charges, yeah, one less to worry about in our prison system.
