Is upcoming SB1225 another anti-immigrant bill?

cropped-TSON.jpg

Let me preface this by saying that the criticism of SB1225 has a lot to do with who runs Arizona right now, especially law enforcement such as Sheriff Joe “proud to be called a KKK member” Arpaio and Paul “interviews with white supremacist radio” Babeu. Otherwise it might seem a simple harmless bill. One’s perspective of it also depends a lot on their previous experience dealing with these types of issues and how similar bills in the past have been used not in theory, but in reality. Suffice it to say there will be a culture clash coming over SB1225 […]

Undercover investigators find guns sold in Arizona without proper background checks

An undercover team of investigators from New York attending the Crossroads of the West Gun Show in Arizona and found that one could buy a semiautomatic weapon even if one cannot pass a background check. If we are going to allow assault weaponry to be available, can we at least have extra secure methods of attaining these deadly weapons? We live in a state were every tablet of Sudafed is counted and if you buy too many you may get in trouble, but bullets are sold without any accounting. Perhaps this is good, perhaps bad, but our priorities are certainly […]

cropped-TSON.jpg

Three Sonorans warned about this before, and now Steven Seagal has made it a reality. The action hero, who has recently been accused of sexual assault, has decided to join Sheriff Arpaio and go rounding up Mexicans in some upcoming immigration raids. The only thing I know for sure is that this will guarantee Seagal some spots of Faux-News as he tries to revive an extinguished career. I hope there are no upcoming stories of auto-erotic asphyxiation in Phoenix… You can help keep progressive news coming by subscribing to Three Sonorans for a mere $5/month, or by giving a one-time […]

Brisenia Flores and her father were killed by Minutemen, a known hate group. The Minutemen used to have among their members JT Ready and Sean Pearce, Russell Pearce’s son who now works with Sheriff Arpaio. The links are all there. The right-wing extremists are armed and dangerous, and they continue to get more armed and more dangerous with new legislation, including bills to allow guns […]

Goldman Sachs CEO gets salary tripled: becomes Man with Gold Sacks

cropped-TSON.jpg

What good is a bailout for banking billionaires without a tripling of the CEO’s salary? Capitalism for the poor, socialism for the richest. The trick is to reach the “too big to fail” status and you are good for life. If you want to know the importance of all this, watch Inside Job at the Loft Cinema. The movie is narrated by Matt Damon and has just been nominated for the 2011 Oscars! (Reuters) – Goldman Sachs Group (GS.N) tripled Chief Executive Lloyd Blankfein’s base salary and awarded him $12.6 million (7.9 million pounds) of stock, even after the bank’s […]

cropped-TSON.jpg

In Egypt right now we are seeing how heroes are made and George Washingtons arise. There comes a time when you have to change the government, but when that government has weapons from the United States, and people have to resort to throwing rocks against tanks, fighter jets and armed military forces, one hopes that “benevolent” countries such as the US can intervene and stop the coming bloodbath that will be televised around the world live. President Obama should choose the side of the people, not Mubarak. Below is one of the latest viral videos coming out of the Egyptian […]
