June 12, Austin, TX
Those in favor of bringing an immigration law like Arizona's SB 1070 held a rally at the state capitol to show their support. Those that feel that this type of law is a racist slippery slope showed up in opposition. The cops had everyone out numbered, and were armed to the teeth, because a few of the geezers that support SB 1070 were also armed.
Notice that their signs read "We're not racist- You're illegal" while they are yelling slogans like "Wetbacks go home!" There were alot of white supremacists, but by the end of it, we had 'em out numbered... and they couldn't just ignore us and listen to the pap coming from the stage... all in all, a good day.

How do we force a multi-national corporation to pay the ACTUAL cost of an ONGOING spill of over 200,000 gallons a day? The oil has made landfall in the critical coastal wetlands of Louisiana. This tragedy affects us all, regardless of where we live because this habitat is host to migratory species, many of which are classified as Critical or Endangered. Lives will be lost. Species may be lost forever. How does one QUANTIFY that loss in DOLLARS??? Preposterous! It can't be done!
So what IS the solution? How DO we proceed?
