Hack of the Day

Jan Brewer.

Dear Jan,
You know know what else hurts innocent people, Jan? Laws that mandate that everybody in your state have legal papers on them or face arrest and fines. Do you really think that your law is fool-proof, and that only the "guilty" will be caught while the innocent are untouched? The whole "it's an anti-crime bill" (in addition to the patent racism involved in associating crime with Mexicans) doesn't float here. You don't get to pass a bigoted law that will undoubtedly affect innocent people in real ways and then complain that "innocents are being hurt" just because many in the rest of the country have decided to react to your foolish laws. Until you express worry about all of the innocent people currently present in your state, you don't have a pot to piss in when you complain about proposed boycotts from people in other states. Period. You enacted your "rights"; they're enacting theirs. End of story.
