Yeah, well .... that's all well and good .... but the fact that ALEC is returning its focus to "economic interests" is not a good thing, either!! That simply means that they will be funneling even MORE money into buying and selling politicians, corrupting the legislative process, and bribing their way into even harsher economic policies that financially harm the rest of us.

Dismissing ethnic studies classes is uncalled for. I don’t agree with it but I can understand how the people of AZ are tired and fed up with the total failure of the federal government to do something about the porous borders and illegal immigrants. Since the feds (who have the total jurisdiction and authority over immigration) refuse to deal with it, it’s up to the state to address the issue. Don’t hate the player, hate the game…..

And why Michael Eric Dyson was there is probably because he's an outspoken critic of racism in America, but, I think that our civil rights leaders and activists need to start thinking twice as to who they will speak for, at least until we hear apologies and denunciation of for/of all the racism toward Black people coming from the particular group(s).

I'm not a fan of the individual mandate, but before we continue debate on which way is right how about some accountability? If a person can afford it but doesn't want to opt in and they get sick, then sin loy. I think everyone agrees that something needed to be done other than the usual congressional hot air, but we will have to see if this was the right decision ofr not. From what I've read, it is estimated that if nothing was done then cost were expected to nearly double by 2016.
