Raising hell in Arizona.

While I’m not a fan of a particular side be they tea partier, coffee clubber or orchata orgiest I am a fan of removing emotional bullshit from arguments relating to  Arizona’s new immigration law that makes it illegal to er be illegal. 

There seems to be a problem requiring people to adhere to the very thing that we immigrants have knowingly signed up for. Not a fan of it but it’s the price of admission I pay to play here.  It’s a nice conceit to think that you can wander around sans state or federal ID but seemingly the very thing I’ve had to live with doing for nearly a decade now, carry my card and have it available for inspection, is problematic because the police will somehow act like jerks in a way that’s different from their usual M.O:)  The funny part is that people are crying to the Fed Gov to protect them from the near word for word rendition a federal law that which they find  outlandish, racist and fascist to jackboot when AZ restated it.

“Permanent Resident Card
The Permanent Resident Card, Form I-551, is issued to all Permanent Residents as evidence of alien registration and their permanent status in the US. The card must be in your possession at all times. This requirement means that you are not only required to have a currently valid Form I-551 at all times, but also that you must carry your currently valid Form I-551 on your person at all times.”

The part of the law that is egregious I will get into later .

Trying an embed from a video service I work on.

There’s no sound , feel free to whistle along.

Google may be the future of mobile search but can’t find it’s ass with both hands in the present.

The other day I was searching for the opening hours of a local restaurant. After running to find a phone-booth to covertly speak a request into the iPhone  (sardellas) that I was looking for  which was about a mile away from my current location.

Google’s mobile iPhone app gave me a restaurant in Rhode Island a couple of thousand miles away as my number one and two result. 

What the hell is the use in that? A geo-enabled device making a request from a mobile app gets results for places that are hours away by jet! 

Yes it’s rather cool that I can talk into my phone, have it get the right phrase, and see results within a few seconds but it would be nice if it could be done with more attention paid to the context of the search.

It would be nice if every crime, malady or take this story from what I consider the bottom tier of reporting  US Local reporting at the city level.This story is on a national feed based solely on the mechanism that allowed people to purchase the dog that went on a biting spree.

The real story is that had this been sold from a classified in the newspaper’s owned by the TV station it would have gone unheralded. Just  about everything you see reported against CL is from the people that didn’t just have their lunch stolen but turned up at the grocery store to find a black smoking hole.

CL has it’s faults but were they are indistinguishable from say the same advert on a supermarket notice board or, and I know this would be a rare one ,from a paid classified ad in a newspaper it shouldn’t be the headline of the story.

here come the abc’s
