We suggest on your next trip to Mexico it might pay to cast your gaze onto desert areas and pick out the headless bodies strewn around the place just waiting to be picked up by American border patrols. It’s easy to spot them, just look up in the sky and see if birds are circling a particular area of the desert for some refreshments. According to Arizona Governor Jan Brewer, there are headless bodies all over the desert, apparently placed there by drug lords who are killing off the Mexican population. Or, it could be that crows and other birds are working in alliance with drug dealers and must be fed. Brewer, who is the new poster girl for Tea Party and Fox News fighters to protect out border against “them,” did admit her statement “was an error” and she “misspoke,” but the bottom line is this POLITICIAN will say anything, do anything in order to get elected. The people of Arizona be damned as far as she is concerned, she is wiling to make every person in the state carry documents proving they belong there because such language resonates well in the right wing media.
When I was a little boy, my Jewish mother in the summer always referred to me as, “the little black boy.” My question to Governor Brewer is: “if I happen to be driving through Arizona in the summer, will I be picked up on grounds that I am “suspicious?” Being picked up does not bother me so much as having my body wind up in the desert without its beautiful face on top of it. Governor Brewer, does your state guarantee we can keep our head on when we drive through it?
