Just How Stupid Are The People Of Arizona?

This stupid. Don't go to Arizona. Jim Harrison, sell your casita. There are better states in which to hunt quail, walk, write the great works you write. I'm no big fan of identity course work, the worst sort of Zen study, but this bill is clearly racist in its origination & will be so in its enforcement.
A bill that aims to ban ethnic studies in Arizona schools was signed into law Tuesday by Gov. Jan Brewer, cheering critics who called such classes divisive and alarming others who said it's yet another law targeting Latinos in the state.

All I ever saw in Arizona was sand and cactus, maybe they are going loco from drinking all that subsidized water.

The bill also bans classes that promote the overthrow of the U.S. government.
Sounds like a patriot to me.

Well, Anonymous, the writers & supporters of this racist bill haven't read the founding documents of our country, otherwise you would be careful with the word "patriot".
For example:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,[71] that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn, that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.


Notice the language, Anonymous. It appears the fake patriots in AZ are making illegal the very foundation of how our country was formed & those ideas designed to keep us free. No patriot here, not at all.
