The Huntsville Times has reported that Police Officer Daniel Golden was gunned Monday by an apparent illegal alien with fradulent documents.The Time's Kieth Cline reports that police charged Benito Albarran, 31, with capital murder Monday night, about six hours after Golden was gunned down in the parking lot of a Jordan Lane restaurant. Golden responded to a domestic call at Jalisco, a Mexican grocery and restaurant, at 2648 Jordan Lane about 3:20 p.m. Monday. When I wake up in the mornings I listen to crime reports on the radio. It seems that a lot of serious crimes in Northwest Arkansas are being committed by people with hispanic surnames. It is all out proportion with their numbers in the population. This morning I heard another one. A guy was arrested for molesting his 9 and 11 year old step-daughters.Is Mexico emptying its jails and insane asylums and shooing them up here? Could it be that people who break the law to get here are a lot more likely to go on breaking laws?Well, maybe President Bush's latest amenesty plan, or Gov. Huckabees latest educational give-away plan for illegal aliens will solve the problem. Why, we have learned through the Petit Jean Poultry plant mess that even those illegals not interested in education can get the Arkansas State Employment Security Division to find them a job. Your tax dollars at work.What is that you say? Those things won't help but only make the problem worse? Well, you voted for them.
Wow Mark, you are getting to be a borderline racist with some of your posts. Why don't you post when a legal citizen murders a police officer, it happens numerous times every day across America.
I was wondering how long it would be for the PC Police to come and try to arrest the discussion with a false accusation of racism. You can kiss my toe. I will not be intimidated by your smears. This issue deserves to be discussed openly. There is not a racist bone in my body. I subscribe to the Bibical Docrtine of the Brotherhood of Man. I also believe that although we are made in the Image of God, man also has a sin nature that must be warred with. We need laws and jails and borders to protect the just from the unjust.I did not say that all Mexicans were criminals, I said that those who cross our border illegally are among the subset of Mexicans who are predisposed to break laws since they break them in the very act of invading the United States.Sure legal citizens committ crimes- but since they are largely America itself, they cannot commit these crimes in disproportinate numbers. It is my contention that illegas do. Reciting the crimes puts faces and names on statistics.It took ONE response for some anonoymous aplogigist to try and shut the discussion down with a phoney accusation of racism. Are we going to keep letting them?
It makes me sick. Over the last 10 and 15 years since hispanics have been flooding over the border unchecked, illegal immigration has taken it's violent toll, slowly at first. A hispanic neighbor of mine moved to northwest Arkansas to get away from the gangs and violence found in Los Angeles now we are becoming just as bad. Our foolish little Governor has no heart or compassion for the legal citizens of this country we are at the low end of the totem pole when comes to equality for all.
I'm fed up with people hiding behind the label "Anonymous". If you can't stand up for your opinions by posting a name, then you lose any credibility with me.
I thought this blog was ARKANSAS Watch. What's the deal with posting stories from Huntsville, Alabama? Other than talking about aliens?
You are right and I was wrong. I have just confirmed that this crime occurred in Alabama, not Arkansas.
Mr. Moore,Take note of your supporter, she claims to live in the "Occupied Confederacy." What else about her beliefs do you think might be reasonable to watch out for? Be honest, what automatically pops into your head about her when you know that fact?
That she is from the south and has a sense of humor?
And what are you suggesting? That she is a racist? Look, I have run up against racists before. Those White Revolution people for example. I dennounce them at every opportunity. Celtie is not one of them. I am conviced that she shares the bibical doctrine of the Brotherhood of Man- along with a healthy skepticism of the post-civil war expansion of federal power.
Mr. Moore,You have made my point. I did not make a single suggestion, instead I asked questions. I did not suggest she is a racist. Personally, I agree with you and doubt that it is the case.Nonetheless, YOU inferred exactly what bothers me about this. Honest but ignorant/foolish Christians don't seem to understand that there is a legitimate worldview that may be presented without attaching unnecessary symbology that carry more meaning than they intend.You can beat your head against the wall if you want to in an attempt to revive the "old" meaning of a symbol/word, but that is what you will be doing.It is far more productive to engage the culture with words and symbols that mean exactly what we intend. (there is no shortage of words that still convey the meanings we intend and nothing more)I agree with you that the federal power has been over extended, but I doubt rapping myself in a Confederate flag will prove productive at winning that intellectual battle.Besides, the founding fathers were right in rejecting a confederation as the form of government. They also put in place proper protections to prevent the abuses that can rise from federalism. Unfortunately, these balances and limits on federal power has been undermined and ignored for the last 150 years.What we need, and I think you will agree, is to return to the CONSTITUTIONALLY LIMITED FEDERAL Republic that we started with. We do NOT need to move toward some ill-formed Confederation.
You and I agree on all that. I am not trying to "rally round the rebel flag". I think we should be sensitive to the feelings of others, but not live our lives in a PC induced terror where we can't make a light-hearted one liner about the confederacy. It leads to absurdity where no one can have a serious discussion about our borders without somebody pulling the race card (as has happened on this thread). Maybe some folks need to be more sensitive to other peoples feelings, and other people need to be LESS sensitive and touchy about their own. IT leads to colleges like Arkansas State having to rename their football team.
Mr. Moore,In the grand scheme of this cultural battle, who really cares about the name of a college football team?Again, this makes my point. The confederation, rebel flags, and silly things like the names of football teams are of no eternal consequence.By doing something silly like defending or associating oneself with symbols, etc. that are of no eternal consequence then you undermine the ultimate philosophical debate that DOES have ultimate importance.If the liberal left will accept such baubles and trinkets such as rebel flags and the names of football teams, then I say give it to them in "compromise"!Oh!, look at that nice shiny politically correct word over there. Watch me take it and use it to get my way with a stupid liberal.You see, liberals are not comprehensively systematic or logical in their worldview. Postmodern liberalism is a feel-good mish-mash of sound-bites and PC trinkets. You can use this to your advantage.I like to think of this PC stuff like I do bait. I can put it on my hook to catch a liberal. Sure, everyone is alittle miffed when they lose their bait, but it is a fine trade when you land a lunker.
I just had to add my two cents. I see it all the time. Folks try to one up others in their intellect and ability to form sentences. Yet after all the talking is done the bottom line still exists. And most times the person talking just likes to hear themselves talk. I am sure this will bring a challege and thats why I join in. The bottom line to this thread was that Illegals are not immigrants. They are Illegals. You can cut this anyway you want or call people names like racist yet the Truth is the truth, and the truth will set you free. I also will tack my name and what I am doing to any correspondence I write.
To anon,I used to feel the same way you did. Then I realized that those who controlled the definitions and symbols controlled the debate. Spanking your child becomes "hitting" for example.Slavery was wrong. I think the teachings of Malcom X were wrong too, but I am not going to get all bent out of shape by a black guy wearing an X and he should not get bent all out of shape by someone wearing the stars and bars. I see all kinds of folks wearing both that would never dream of attacking someone just because of race. There are some symbols that are unredeemable- like the swastika. I don't know of many symbols that can't be critisized for anything- I count the stars and bars as a mixed symbol. Does it mean freedom from federal overreach, a laid back Dixie lifestyle, or does it stand for slavery? Lots of folks hate the American Flag. So we either let the left paint us as evil for whatever symbol we adopt, and define terms so that we have lost the argument before it starts, or we attack the very premise of their assaults. Freedom means letting people use mixed symbols like that and giving them the benefit of a doubt over which sense of meaning they attach to it.I don't see any reason to back down to these facists. The same people who are in favor of using tax dollars to stock the Fayetteville Public Library with porn for kids would turn around and try to censor the stars and bars out of existence.We must not accept the premise of their arguments by using the twisted definitions they try to set, or the one-sided view of symbols that they attempt to impose.
