The following is from a thread over on VGOF (Virginia Gun Owners Forum) – forum member zephyp sums up how I feel about the Arizona immigration law uproar. Actually it sums up how I’ve felt about it for years (long prior to the uproar from the left). Thanks for letting me share this, DK. (h/t)

“I feel for all of the poor immigrants who come here legally. They must first work and save money in their home country and apply for a visa. Then find a way to come here often leaving most of their belongings and some of their family behind. Then the wait begins and all of the red tape. I understand the process can take years to do legally. God bless those who endure the legal process and find a better way of life here as US citizens and I welcome those.

To those here breaking our laws — I dont care who you are or what good/bad you are doing. You are here illegally and should be arrested. You are not citizens and therefore not afforded protection by our Constitution. You have human rights but not civil rights. I fully expect the federal — or in this case state of AZ — government to treat you “civilly” as they detain, arrest, and deport your illegal self back to where you came. Get in line and do it legally.

I spent 17 years in southern AZ. I feel sorry for the folks down there. I can only imagine what they must be going through. I understand that it is no longer safe to walk to the corner 7-11 without carrying a gun or be with someone — or several someones who are.

And last, to obama and all the so called elected leaders pushing for amnesty and doing nothing about the crisis on the border — you will get yours eventually. Maybe not in November and maybe not in 2012. But one day every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess.

To the Mexican government speaking out against actions in AZ — keep your citizens in your own country and make them use our legal process. You people have created a third world country out of something that could be indeed have been a very nice place to live. You and your corrupt officials, along with the drug cartels, will get yours too…”

A little late finding this – but still timely and well worth the read.

Liberal reality is fabricated perception: NPR, the Southern Poverty Law Center and the infrastructure of an alternate, fact-filtered universe

The Southern Poverty Law Center, which has long made a crusade of demonizing Conservative America, has once again put in the form of a so-called investigative report their amalgamated dismissal of Conservatives as an angry mob of racists.

This is hardly a new spin on the political climate of our nation since Democrats officially assumed control of both the Legislature and the Office of the Executive.  What makes this report more disturbing than the regular slew of flippant accusations from the Left is the insidious capacity of the author to present the most disingenuous aspersions cast upon the Right in a tidy, 1,200-word package entitled Rage on the Right: The Year in Hate and Extremism.

Here for the rest of the article

Karen, you once again hit the nail on the head.

Tractor Tracks: Survival Seeds

Farmgirl’s write up got me to thinking about garden food – the best part of spring and summer. Mom and Bro already have their gardens kickin’ nicely, mine is running a bit behind. I hope to get the majority of the planting done this weekend.

They both plant a mix of square foot and row style, until we get out of the city and back to the land we do square foot gardening in raised beds. We don’t have the room for big row and hill crops, so it’s mostly climbing crops (cukes, pole beans, sugar snaps), cage crops like tomatoes, and compact bush plants (beans, peppers). Even with only six 4’x4′ raised beds, we still knock a substantial dent in our food bill.

One thing that eats a large amount of garden space is our asparagus. It tends to sprawl like a teenager on a sofa as the season goes on, but its perennial nature makes me forgive that. As wonderful as the first juicy tomatoes of summer can be, there’s nothing at all like the first freshly picked asparagus spears of spring. MMMMMM – that is what spring tastes like!

What’s in *your* garden?
