Sink hole de what?

Praising Arizona

Boned Jello

In "Praising Arizona," Heather Mac Donald writes, "The state’s new immigration law is perfectly reasonable, but you wouldn’t know it from the New York Times."  Here's what democrats are using, in their attempt to get out the November vote (US citizen, or not) and stave off annihilation, actually says.
The law, SB 1070, empowers local police officers to check the immigration status of individuals whom they have encountered during a “lawful contact,” if an officer reasonably suspects the person stopped of being in the country illegally, and if an inquiry into the person’s status is “practicable.” The officer may not base his suspicion of illegality “solely [on] race, color or national origin.” (Arizona lawmakers recently amended the law to change the term “lawful contact” to “lawful stop, detention or arrest” and deleted the word “solely” from the phrase regarding race, color, and national origin. The governor is expected to sign the amendments.) The law also requires aliens to carry their immigration documents, mirroring an identical federal requirement. Failure to comply with the federal law on carrying immigration papers becomes a state misdemeanor under the Arizona law.
Unfortunately for the forces of evil, stories like Students threatened with suspension for wearing U.S. colors on Cinco de Mayo resonate. Cinco de Mayo, my ass. In the USA we say  May 5th.  We do not  celebrate Mexican army victories, rare though they may be.

Article 67 of Mexico's Population Law says, "Authorities, whether federal, state or municipal ... are required to demand that foreigners prove their legal presence in the country, before attending to any issues."

Every country on Earth will have its turn to beat the French.

It's like Warhole's 15 minutes of fame.

According to Wikipedia, Cinco de Mayo isn't really celebrated in all of Mexico, just in the state of Puebla, where the battle happened.
Oh - also in the US, where it is mostly an excuse to drink beer and margaritas til you puke.
Sort of like St. Patrick's Day. In Ireland itself, it is a holy day of obligation - Catholics have to go to Mass. In the US, St Paddy's day is just an excuse to drink green beer until you puke.
