It's Cinco de Mayo ... Celebrate With An Arizona Buy-Cott!

Today not only marks the day Mexico recognizes a thwarted attack by France (as promoted and celebrated first in the United States by Corona Beer as a promotion to sell their product) ... today is the day independent American citizens can begin to show support for Arizona in its effort to localize Federal immigration law.

Wednesday, May 5, 2010 at 8:00am (any timezone) marks the official start to Buy Arizona, where people intentionally purchase goods and services from companies that claim their headquarters in Arizona in a "Buy-Cott" - a reversal to the time honored consumerism activity known as a boycott.

Ahhhhh, to purchase, as opposed to ignore the goods or services produced, from a company just feels more affirming and, well, AMERICAN! After all, directed consuming is so Capitalistic and un-Obama Administration.

It's Cinco de Mayo, so go out and celebrate by first purchasing an American flag from the American Flag & Pole Co., then go online and pick up some protection in the form of a non-lethal deterrents from Taser International, followed by digital identity theft protection software and services designed by Lifelock, and finally ... go to dinner at PF Changs ... OK, so this food selection does not contain tortillas or salsa but it is time for a new tradition.

The main activity for Cinco de Mayo, and beyond during this "Carter's Second Term", is to begin the tradition of American self-reliance beginning with the show of support of a State that wishes to take control of its destiny in the service to its citizens over the actions (in this case, inaction) of the Federal Government.

BUY ARIZONA - Support Arizona based corporations, local businesses, on-line retailers, and tourism.

The following list is just a sampling of the great companies you can support directly with consumerism ... and there is something for everyone - this IS America. PLEASE SHARE!!

Be sure to check back at the folloing website regularly ... more companies will be added as soon as they are identified!

I saw Jay Leno at Correspondent Dinner his best line was; “That was my favorite story (this year) Republicans and a Lesbian bondage club. It’s ironic, Republicans don’t want lesbian getting married but they do like watching them “tie the knot”. So I thought that was interesting.”

You can say the same about Tea Party (they are haters not debaters or as others have dubbed them screamers not dreamers), they say they respect the Constitution, the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence but they do not mind passing laws, through weak Governors (no one voted for this crazy) who only care about getting reelected on the backs of undocumented workers, that will not pass Constitution muster, just like Arizona’s House Bill 2779 from two years ago and your MLK Day ban, keep passing them Arizona and the rest of us will continue to challenged them in a court of law and you will fail again (and yes we will Boycott Arizona). Their phony patriotism is sickening; they are just racists going by another name. We all know you are just itching to put a sheet on their head? Let’s face it the Republicans had eight years to deal with health care, immigration, climate change and financial oversight and governance and they failed. It appears that the Republican Party is only good at starting wars (two in eight years, with fat contracts to friends of Cheney/Bush) but not at winning wars as seen by the continuing line of body bags that keep coming home. The Republicans party will continue turned inward to their old fashion obstructionist party (and their Confederacy appreciation roots) because they continue to allow a small portions (but very loud portion) of their party of “birthers, baggers and blowhards” to rule their party. I will admit that this fringe is very good at playing “Follow the Leader” by listening to their dullard leaders, Beck, Hedgecock, Hannity, O’Reilly, Rush, Savage, Sarah Bailin, Orly Taitz, Victoria Jackson, Michele Bachmann and the rest of the Blowhards and acting as ill programmed robots (they have already acted against doctors that perform abortions). The Birthers and the Tea party crowd think they can scare, intimidate and force others to go along with them by comments like “This time we came unarmed”, let me tell you something not all ex-military join the fringe militia crazies who don’t pay taxes and run around with face paint in the parks playing commando, the majority are mature and understand that the world is more complicated and grey than the black and white that these simpleton make it out to be and that my friend is the point. The world is complicated and people like Hamilton, Lincoln, and Roosevelt believed that we should use government a little to increase social mobility, now it’s about dancing around the claim of government is the problem. The sainted Reagan passed the biggest tax increase in American history and as a result federal employment increased, but facts are lost when mired in mysticism and superstition. For a party that gave us Abraham Lincoln, it is tragic that the ranks are filled with too many empty suits and the crazy Birthers who have not learned that the way our courts work is that you get a competent lawyer, verifiable facts and present them to a judge, if the facts are real and not half baked internet lies, then, and only then, do you proceed to trial. The Birthers seem to be having a problem with their so called “facts”. Let’s face it no one will take the Birthers seriously until they win a case, but until then, you will continue to appear dumb, crazy or racist, or maybe all three. I heard that Orly Taitz now wants to investigate the “Republican 2009 Summer of Love” list: Assemblyman, Michael D. Duvall (CA), Senator John Ensign (NV), Senator Paul Stanley (TN), Governor Mark Stanford (SC), Board of Ed Chair, and Kristin Maguire AKA Bridget Keeney (SC), she wants to re-establish a family values party, that’s like saying that the Catholic Church cares about the welling being of children in their care, too late for that. Yee Haw!

... and the progressive template goes on and on. The truth is that these talking points hold little truth when they are subjected to the light of day and compared to the Cinco de Mayo action called for today.

Buy Arizona ... it is just that simple and without talking points or hateful, name-calling rant. Buy Arizona and help to purchase freedom a little bit of freedom for every citizen ... even "Montana".
