Obama Cisco Kid Defense & Judge Susan Bolton

The Obama administration's 37th argument before Federal District Court Judge Susan Bolton:  "The new Arizona immigration enforcement law dishonors the memory of the Cisco Kid."

Improbably, I twice crossed path with the actor who played the Cisco Kid. First time at gas station in Santa Barbara, CA. Amazing that I would have recognized him so many years after watching him as a kid on our old Philco TV. One clue, however, was the licence plate on the back of his big bad car reading: "Cisco Kid."

In any case, the absurd Justice Department arguments put forth in Federal District Court before Judge Susan Bolton, for example, that Arizona might actually be successful and catch too many illegals, thus inundating the federal system, or, my personal favorite, Mexico might get mad at us, serve a wonderfully important purpose: demonstrating that the Obama administration, and many others in the federal government, enthusiastically support the foreign invasion of the United States. And, by the way, if the federal government is so lawyers-at-the-ready concerned about various states impinging upon federal powers, why aren't the mayors of "sanctuary cities" in federal prison right now, where they belong?

Defense of Baseball Caps and Mustaches

Most of today's fashion pointers seem reasonable, but sometimes it is forgotten that function can be at least as important as fashion. This is true with baseball caps. If you reside and are often outside in a place that can have blasting summers and stormy winters, you need a hat, and one with a brim. That limits you. Do you pretend to be a cowboy? Or how about a fedora? Besides, a hat with a brim all the way around can be a real hassle if it is windy, unless you use a chinstrap. No thanks. A lot of these style do’s and don’t’s are common sense, but some are the result of urban young people with too much time on their hands, who think that everything is about style. It reminds one of the fact that mustaches have been declared horribly out of style for years. Yet when walking down the street in many towns you see that about every third guy is wearing one. But they are all embarrassingly out of style? Okaaay. But here's the kicker. If you have a mustache with a little triangle of hair under your lower lip (plead guilty), it is just fine--because then what you have above your upper lip is apparently no longer a mustache! Oh brother ...
