After considering the new, much maligned Arizona Immigration Bill, I have decided that it is appropriate and necessary.

The current national debt is $12.46 trillion, (I would put all the…Details
One favored method of dismissing the sovereignty of state governments is to quote the Supremacy Clause, saying that since the Constitution is the supreme law of the land that state laws are necessarily subordinate to federal law.
