I would like to say something concerning the new Arizona [immigration] law. People need to quit complaining (New York Times and Washington Post alike).

I am currently taking college courses at Central Texas College (history is one of them). Let me tell those people, Arizona was right to pass the law. As per the original Constitution, there is supposed to be less federal government in our lives and more state government.

I am married to a Japanese woman, and if I can do things the legal way to get my wife’s green card, everybody else can too. If they choose not to, they should do time, pay a big fine and get out of the country. Same for those who think those people deserve to be in America illegally. If you want to complain about something, then the federal government is the one. It wastes taxpayer dollars on little things (like military upgrades to an airport in Pennsylvania at the request of Rep. John P. Murtha before he died).
