By the Time I Get to Arizona

If you haven't heard yet, Arizona's legislature just passed a harass-the-Hispanics bill. I wish I was kidding.

I don't have time to get into the problems with localities enforcing federal law, but this is just so broad that it boggles the mind how rational people can pass such god-awful legislation. Here is a good and pretty short video detailing some of the major problems with the bill. Pay particular attention to the "anti-discrimination" provision.

It seems only appropriate to play this for Mood Music Monday.

You can urge Arizona's governor Jan Brewer to veto this odious legislation here.

Thanks to America's Voice for the Selden link and the petition to the governor.

Update: Governor Brewer signed the bill today (Friday), with accompanying empty rhetoric about how it's not going to encourage racial profiling.
