FOUNTAIN HILLS, Ariz., April 28 (Reuters) - As many as 200

activists, some chanting "go Joe, go Joe," rallied in Arizona on
Saturday to support Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who is
facing a federal racial-profiling probe for his police sweeps
against illegal immigrants.

"Sheriff Joe is one of the very few guys who will enforce
the immigration laws across this nation," said Randy Hatch, who
used a megaphone to rally supporters of Arpaio at a park in this
northeast Phoenix valley city.

"Every constitution and country that has ever existed has
had to have sovereign borders," he said to cheers from the
crowd, some clutching placards reading "Sheriff Joe keeps us
safe" and

Typical snotty lib press. Clutching placards? How about holding them?

“Hard line” must be Rat-speak for “one who thinks laws are important”.

If Obama and his justice department don't like our immigration laws, why don't they try to repeal them? It would save everyone tons of time and expense.

If, on the other hand, Obama and his minions Do not like laws legally and democratically created and existing, and simply do not enforce them, and preempt any other lawful state or local authority from enforcing them, something is dreadfully wrong.

Does anyone else wonder how much time and money has been spent harrassing Joe Arpaio by the Obama administration?

This is nothing more than a bitter false President trying to scare the only American in High Office with the balls to investigate his background.

The Chicago Tribune and the rest of the State Run Media will get more and more shrill as it sinks in that ObummerCare may come crashing down and the Supremes may uphold AZ S.B. 1070.

And it’s guys like Sheriff Joe who send them over the edge—imagine, a lowly hick local official telling JugEars and his racist Atty. Gen. to kiss his rear end.

Go, Joe, go!

What makes me sick is this: we have high-ranking government officials doing exhaustive investigations of every inch of the Arizona sheriff's life in order to try to find some dirt that they can use to send the sheriff to jail.

On the other hand, when it comes to investigating details of President Obama's controversial background---such as questions concerning his Hawaii long form birth certificate and his Connecticut Social Security number---it seems that our Senators and Representatives have stuck their heads in the sand and are avoiding any investigation of President Obama like they would avoid the plague.

That is, our government officials have spent more time and energy in investigating the tiniest details in the life of an obscure sheriff living in one of our 50 states, Arizona---a person who most of the people of the world have never heard of and could care less about--- than they have in investigating the obvious controversial background of the President of the United States.

How sick is that?

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who is facing a federal racial-profiling...?

racial-profiling?? / at least Arpaio hasn't used the word illegal greaser or illegal spic. Either way, all these illegals need to get out.

BTW, is a Federal Politician a “Race?” I mean, they DO call elections a “Political Race.”

If Federal Politicians are a “Race,” than maybe Sheriff Joe should racially-profile these Federal Politicians? Us voters sure don’t want any part of them.

Maybe the “Race of Federal Politicians,” who are adept at committing financial crimes against their own grandchildren, are simply playing the “Racial-Profiling Card” to protect themselves from breaking the law?
