You Can’t Do THAT, Arizona

without comments

Swooping in at the very last moment, federal judge Susan Boltan blocked portions of Arizona’s controversial immigration law.

The overall law will still take effect Thursday, but without the provisions that angered opponents — including sections that required officers to check a person’s immigration status while enforcing other laws.

The judge also put on hold parts of the law that required immigrants to carry their papers at all times, and made it illegal for undocumented workers to solicit employment in public places.

So what prompted the Feds to step in and pull the stops on Arizona from implementing it’s new law at Midnight, tonight?  According to the federal judge:

“By enforcing this statute, Arizona would impose a ‘distinct, unusual and extraordinary’ burden on legal resident aliens that only the federal government has the authority to impose.”

That’s right, Arizona… only our FEDERAL government can impose “distinct, unusual, and extraordinary” burdens on us!  So just back off!!!

Michigan lawmakers in Lansing are meeting to clean up old and outdated state laws.

Legislation approved today would no longer make it a crime to engage in a duel with an enemy, to be in a prize fight or to take a woman against her will and force her to marry.

Finally! At long last, I can now legally challenge ALL of my arch-enemies to duels!!!  One at a time, I shall at long last enact the vengeance that has until now been denied to me.  You may have forgotten your transgressions, oh cretins of Michigan, but not I.  No… never I.

In completely unrelated news, Kristin and I are now legally married!
