A Few Ideas Re DACA Replacement

Published on October 8, 2017 By sirrahc

While mulling over what to write on this week, I kept thinking about last week’s post. So, I decided to follow it up with a few thoughts — not entirely original, of course — on what I’d like to see in the imminent DACA/DREAMer-oriented legislation. Nothing profound, just my two cents. Knowing that I am […]

“DEFERRED, adj.: put off; postponed; delayed; withheld for or until a stated time”  — definition consolidated from Merriam-Webster and American Heritage Before we look at this week’s topic, perhaps we should clarify a few terms….

100 Days In

Published on April 30, 2017 By sirrahc

Everyone’s talking about Trump’s first 100 days in office, but I’m going to keep my comments fairly short. Trump himself, as I’m sure you know, is now saying that this “100 Days” marker is arbitrary and doesn’t mean much. And he’s right,… mostly. The media started doing this awhile back, and it makes for a […]

One day I realized that I was “stuck” where I was in life and didn’t like my limited options. I felt I needed a change. I didn’t want to stay in my poor neighborhood. I wanted to take advantage of the opportunities that others “out there” had. So,… I left. I didn’t really feel like […]

Neo-Nazi Patrols Arizona Border

Published on July 17, 2010 By sirrahc

Meet Jason “J.T.” Ready. He and his crew are out there week after week, faithfully patrolling the Arizona/Mexico border (on public land) about 50 miles south of Phoenix. Like many frustrated citizens, they got tired of waiting for the government to take (effective) action, so they took it upon themselves to go out looking for […]
