I was told today by a friend that they were glad that I was "snarky" too.
but the truth is...
"I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it hard to plan the day." — E.B. White"
I feel like I live in a world where choosing bliss condemns me to choosing to be ignorant and indifferent to the suffering of others or to my own. And I wonder if that was possible whether or not I'd choose to be. Obviously not, since I keep delving into issues like these. I guess I choose to build a life that extends beyond me. I only question if there isn't a better way to accomplish more. Cest le vie.
Meanwhile, back at the ranch...
In January Sens. Paul Vitter and Rand Paul introduced legislation to repeal birthright citizenship. Arizona advanced its pair of birthright citizenship rollback bills, SB 1308 and SB 1309, out of committee last Tuesday. They’re headed now for the Senate floor. Proponents of the state-level and federal bills have been open about wanting to trigger a Supreme Court review to re-evaluate the 14th Amendment.
“If we get the correct court decision…we will not be dispensing citizenship like a door prize,” Arizona state Rep. John Kavangah said the day he filed his bills in January. “Especially not for those whose parents snuck into this country illegally through the back door.”
...and this is sort of the clusterf*ck that all of that song and dance turns into. I'm only glad to see that everyone in Arizona hasn't lost their damn mind.
