Urban Safari II: We returned to Phoenix, AZ
















As with our last “urban safari”, we utilized public transportation to maximize the urban experience. Bright and early Thursday morning, we departed the park and ride lot in Maricopa, AZ. This lot is on the edge of town west of city hall. If the bus isn’t there, you will more than likely drive by without finding it. We arrived at Central Station in downtown Phoenix around 6:30AM.

We weren’t at Central Station ten minutes before some bum was asking me for smokes. I told him I didn’t smoke and that conversation was over just like that.

I grabbed a copy of the Phoenix New Times and purchased an all day transit pass. We hopped on the first train going east as Mill AV was to be our next destination.

We made it to Mill AV and walked around for a while. I stopped at the Rabbit Fountain at Center Point. I seated myself on the rabbit and read about myself in the New Times. This was a nice relaxing place to take a break before walking up Mill AV to the Tempe Town Lake. On our way north, I noticed a homeless person flanking us. I decided to change direction and let him get in front of us. I get tired of strangers walking up to me and asking me for stuff. I don’t believe in begging.

After wrapping things up on Mill AV, we got back on the Light Rail and made our way back to downtown Phoenix. It was our plan to go to the State Capitol and visit the Capitol Museum. I have been to the Capitol many times to attend immigration demonstrations, but never got to check out some of the tourist attractions.

Once we stepped off the light rail, we got on the DASH Government Loop bus. This service is provided by the City, free of charge. This being the case, the occupants were some of the most “ghetto” people we encountered all day. It was crowded and this Negro in a wheel chair appeared to know everybody. He just wouldn’t shut up. If diversity isn’t your thing, I suggest you avoid the DASH along Washington ST.

The Capitol Museum was almost empty. We checked out all of the exhibits on all of the floors. I even sat in the “big boss man’s” chair. I especially liked the USS Arizona exhibit.

Outside the Capitol on the lawn were those anti-SB 1070 activists. I guess they’ve been out there for days. One was sleeping in a hammock and another was crashed out on the lawn. Everybody else was sitting in the shade under trees. Their signs were all sitting on the lawn. Real hard core activists would have had the motivation to stand up and hold those signs. They looked rather pathetic.

We got back on the Light Rail and ventured to the west side and got something light to eat for lunch. We encountered lots of freaky people along the way. We saw one woman that could sleep sitting straight up in her seat. Other passengers looked like zombies with blank faces. Several people, who were not paying attention, either missed their stops or missed the train altogether. One woman was so focused on her phone that the train pulled away and she was unable to get on.

After deciding to stop and walk around Chase Field, home of the worst baseball team in Major League Baseball, we stepped off the train and had a look around. It wasn’t long before some well dressed large Negro with a basketball walked up and started singing some jive. Fortunately, he shut up and walked away on his own.

Last but not least, we went to Sky Harbor Airport. We encountered a group of elderly people with American Flags. We learned that a group of World War II veterans were scheduled to arrive. We waited until their arrival. Most of them were in wheel chairs, but some of them managed to walk off the plane under their own power.

We will definitely be doing this again sometime. It’s more entertaining and cheaper than a movie. The total cost of bus fare and the all day pass was approximately $5.00 each.

More on Saturday’s Stand With Arizona Rally. . . .











In my previous blog I said the following: "We were quite pleased to see so many White People gathered in one place to support the rule of law. As expected, many of the speakers made a point to stress that, `We are not racists.' Perhaps, they think if they say that enough times, they might actually believe it." It’s not everyday that Steve Lemons and I agree with something, so I thought I’d expand on my thoughts some more.

Simply put, I like to call things as I see them.

In the name of political correctness, people will insist they have no bias towards other ethnic groups and races. In reality, they do. I’m sure much of it is intentional, but racism/bias(depending on one’s definition) can also be less obvious and perhaps even involuntary. Scientific studies suggest that bias is genetic. As we know, not all human behavior is learned. It’s only natural to prefer people most like yourself.

Some years ago, I worked as a supervisor for a marketing company. The owner of that company claimed, “I don’t have a racist bone in my body.” After more than a decade, I still remember his exact words. I may have forgotten this sentence if it weren’t for the fact he would try to make $1.00 bets with me if the new black hire would return for a second day of work. Decide for your self. Was he racist? I never took the bets.

Despite my views, I did treat every employee with the same respect. I worked with many alcoholics, jail work release, half-way house, homeless and mentally unsound people of all races. This position required a tremendous amount of patience. Imagine dealing with adults that would take a dump in their pants, completely ignore instructions, get arrested on the job or forget what day it was. Imagine how embarrassing it could be if you had to apologize to a client on behalf of your employer because of the things the people on your crew did in public.

This same employer also employed illegal aliens. Imagine, having a position of responsibility where you were expected to perform a competent job only to have less than competent employees that didn’t understand a word of English. When these employees screwed up, it would be your fault. Then, try to imagine working in an environment where a language barrier could get you killed. Perhaps, these situations did much to cultivate my opinions regarding illegal immigration. Unfortunately, journalists rarely get this sort of first hand experience.

Neo-Nazis at the "Buycott," and Why National Socialist Harry Hughes Is (Sadly) Right

I mentioned in my roundup of Saturday's big anti-SB 1070 march that local neo-Nazi Harry Hughes attended the pro-SB 1070 "buycott" rally at Tempe's Diablo Stadium later that same say. Along for the ride was at least one other local neo-Nazi, Scott Hume.

I've been getting e-mails aplenty about how white supremacist J.T. Ready, who protested the anti-SB 1070 event at the state Capitol with a hanger-on, declared that Adolf Hitler was a "great white civil rights leader."

J.T. Ready uses different methods than myself , but I respect them nonetheless. One thing Hitler rarely receives credit for is that he dramatically slowed the spread of Communism.

Don’t believe everything the TV tells you. Question, discuss and debate events and ideas. Excluding an idea simply because you don’t happen to like it is not very scientific or objective. Remember, there was once a time where people thought the Earth was flat. Ultimately, this was proven by science to be incorrect.

7,000 Gather For Pro-1070 Rally

TEMPE, Ariz. -- Seven-thousand people packed into Diablo Stadium in Tempe Saturday night, making sure Arizona knew there are quite a few people who said the new immigration law is just what the state needs.

It was a major event for the pro-1070 movement, a rally bringing people from across the country to Arizona.

Butch Marsalis and his wife drove in from Texas.

"Just to show up. Sometimes a letter just kinda gets washed over and if we can just be one more then that's why we came," said Marsalis.

Please support and patronize Arizona businesses and products. I know this won't be as easy since the 1% sales tax increase came into play today. Securing the border is about protecting our citizens.

"The ongoing migration of persons to the United States in violation of our laws is a serious national problem detrimental to the interests of the United States."

Saturday Night In Tempe, AZ: Stand With Arizona Rally

























My self, along with several of my comrades spent Saturday night at the Stand With Arizona Rally at the Tempe Diablo Stadium. Prior to the speeches, we got to meet and mingle with several political candidates including Buz Mills who is running for governor.

We were quite pleased to see so many White People gathered in one place to support the rule of law. As expected, many of the speakers made a point to stress that, “We are not racists.” Perhaps, they think if they say that enough times, they might actually believe it. In reality, many of America’s problems are race related. As is proving to be the case, denial can be quite harmful, even fatal.

All of the various cities across the country that have decided to boycott Arizona in protest of SB 1070 are not really hurting Arizona. They are actually hurting the Mexicans, Guatemalans and Salvadorans that prepare the food, and clean the rooms the tourists and businessmen stay in. Boycotts are often poorly thought out “knee jerk” reactions. In time, we shall see how many people jump on this bandwagon.

Hopefully, these ungrateful foreigners working in the service industry will lose their jobs when travelers quit coming. They might be forced to return to their countries of origin or move next door to California and drive some more nails in their economic and social coffins.

Thousands descend on Phoenix for immigration march, rallies

PHOENIX — People from out of state came to Phoenix in the thousands to express their opinion, both support and opposition, on Arizona's new law targeting illegal immigration.

Thousands more people rallied in Tempe for the Stand With Arizona Buycott to show their support for Arizona on Saturday evening. Those supporters of the immigration bill are encouraging people to continue to come to the state for vacationing and avoid boycotting the state.

I did manage to get a good shot of Lou Ferrigno. I remember watching the original Incredible Hulk series before they became reruns. My favorite line was, “You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry.”

Well, many Americans are angry. They are angry at the government and the crooks posing as politicians that run it. I was pleased to hear that the Hulk doesn’t like illegal aliens either. He lives in the “People’s Republic of California” and should know first hand how illegal immigration can destroy an entire state.

Arpaio Makes the Hulk an Honorary Deputy

PHOENIX - There was a celebrity sighting at the 4th Ave Jail Friday. Lou Ferrigno, best known for playing the original Incredible Hulk, was sworn in as an honorary deputy.

Ferrigno is a big supporter of Sheriff Joe and SB 1070. He lives in California and says he knows first-hand the problems associated with illegal immigration there.

Arizona is under heavy criticism from the left wing zealots for passing legislation geared to protect its’ own citizens from the perils of illegal immigration. Arizonans are being attacked as "racist," "nazi" and "extremist." The liberal left wing open borders crowd believes they can marginalize, demonize and isolate Arizona. It is their goal to pressure the citizens of Arizona to stop enforcing the law and look the other way.

I was disappointed that Phoenix New Times blogger Steve Lemons and his sidekick, Dennis Gilman didn’t make an appearance at this event. Perhaps, they wanted to avoid conflict with the numerous members(a.k.a. biker thugs) of the “nativist crowd” that were present. Maybe they were just worn out from the big march in downtown Phoenix. Hopefully, I’ll see them at the next event.

Experts suggest that approximately 75 percent of working-age illegal aliens are committing felony document fraud by using fraudulent Social Security cards to obtain employment. The Social Security Administration and Internal Revenue Service facilitate illegal immigrant-driven identity theft. Both turn a blind eye to massive SSN fraud and take no action to stop it.
