Arizona Immigration Law called "racist", "stupid" by Arizona Sheriff

The Arizona Immigration Law has been called "racist" and "stupid" by Pima County Arizona Sheriff Clarence Dupnik, who's served as a police officer for 52 years. He made this statement on video on the appropriately named KGUN9 TV news in Tuscon, Arizona and at

Sheriff Clarence Dupnik says that he can't enforce the Arizona Illegal Immigration law without racial profiling. In the video below, the Sheriff also said that the law is "disgusting" and "unnecessary" and "one of the worst pieces of legislation" he's ever seen in 50 years. He's expected to get sued if he doesn't enforce the law and get sued if he does enforce the law. Dupnik says Federal law supersedes state law, so he will follow federal law.

The Sheriff held a news conference to expand on his comments today. He continued to call SB 1070 racist, but added other adjectives; he said it was "unwise, stupid and it's racist."

He's right. proponents of SB 1070 make the ass-stupid claim that it will not cause racial profiling, then almost in the next breath talk about "them" coming over "the border" leading to the next logical question: who are they who come over the border? Then the proponent trips all over themselves not to use the word "Mexico" because then they have to admit they are referring to people they think are Mexican. So you have to inevitably ask what does a Mexican look like.

Crazy stuff. Arizona's 30 percent Latino, so the law would basically place one-third of the state's population under siege.

The Sheriff also used the term "we" which means he's not acting alone and is not a rogue police officer. Sheriff Clarence Dupnik is a seasoned law enforcement official who knows a psychotic piece of legislation when he sees one. Dupnik says the law is fueled by "an incredible amount of hostility, anger and cynicism."

He's right. It gives license to psychotic behavior. In the last blog on this subject in this space we saw a shocking comparison between the words of an Arizona Nazi and of all people Arizona Governor Jan Brewer. It was difficult to tell them apart, and both exhibited psychotic behavior.

If Sheriff Clarence Dupnik calls the law racist and stupid, what does that say about Governor Brewer?

Stay tuned.

Sandra Bullock divorces Jesse James; papers site personality conflict

Sandra Bullock divorces Jesse James. The divorce papers site personality conflict and "discord." Interestingly, the divorce papers were filed in Texas, not in California.

Yes, Sandra Bullock lives in Austin, Texas, but she also lives in California and perhaps even New York City, so another reason for the venue selection could be that Texas divorce laws will not leave Jesse James with a good part of what Sandra Bullock owns.

(This part of the Sandra Bullock and Jesse James divorce and cheating scandal was brought to this blogger's attention by Suzannah B. Troy of New York Focus Blog.)

The papers called In The Matter of B.A.S and J.J.G were filed in the Travis County Courthouse on April 23, 2010. The document is simple. Children aren't mentioned in it, so sections that govern kids in Texas don't apply. Overall, it's remarkably simple.

It frees Sandra Bullock to start the new phase of her life with her bouncing baby boy Louis Brado Bullock and as a single parent. The divorce papers are here, below:

Jesse James sad over Sandra Bullock divorce; will miss baby Louis

Jesse James said to People Magazine he's sad over Sandra Bullock's divorce from him and will miss baby Louis Brado Bullock. Jesse James said to People Magazine:

My whole life has been full of hard decisions. The decision to let my wife end our marriage, and continue the adoption of Louis on her own, has been the hardest. The love I have for Louis cannot be put to words. Not having him around to love and to hold has left a huge hole in my heart.

Sandy is the love of my life, but considering the pain and devastation I have caused her, it would be selfish to not let her go. Right now it is time for me to beat this addiction that has taken two of the things I love the most in life.

I have always taken great pride in proving people wrong. That time has come once again to show that I am not what everyone says I am. I know in my heart that I can be the best father possible to my four children, and the mate Sandy deserves, and realize that this is an incredible mountain to climb. But I believe that the steps I have taken in the last 30 days are the foundation for making this happen. The lifelong commitment I am making is what being a real husband and father is all about.

I ask that you please do not judge Sandy for the things I have done. She has done no wrong. She played no part in any of this. She has been an amazing wife, mother, and best friend, for the over 6 years we have been together.

Very sad to see that Jesse James and Sandra Bullock were not able to overcome his trespasses and maintain their marriage, but in some old sort of way, perhaps this is best for James.

Meanwhile, Sandra Bullock starts a new chapter in her life with baby Louis. But you've got to wonder of Ole Miss is going to come calling on him 16 years from now.

Something must be added here: Jesse James obviously has no standard racial issues if he was part of the adoption of Louis, who's black. Perhaps we can put that to rest.

And bravo to People Magazine for a brilliant Internet play!

Stay tuned.

Jeff Ireland: On Dez Bryant blast Dolphins GM called "A-list A-hole"

Dez Bryant's a Dallas Cowboys now and is able to look back on the horrible way he was treated during his path to the 2010 NFL Draft and by Jeff Ireland of the Miami Dolphins.

Just because Dez Bryant lied about his association with NFL Legend and NFL Network Analyst Deion Sanders, Dez Bryant was said to have "character issues". The media - except this blogger and a few others - picked up on it and sullied Dez Bryant. Fortunately Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones saw through the garbage to make Dez Bryant the Cowboys first round pick.

But in looking back Dez Bryant told this blogger's friend Yahoo! Sports Senior Writer Mike Silver that Jeff Ireland asked the young man if his mother was a prostitute. You read that correctly. Jeff Ireland reportedly apologized for the blast, presumably because it was made public, but the damage is just getting started in New Media. In a number of places Jeff Ireland's question would have earned a knuckle sandwich; only in an NFL interview can a person get away with that.

Mike Silver lowered the boom on Jeff Ireland calling the Miami Dolphins General Manager a "jerk" and an A-list A-hole." Silver quotes former NFL Lineman Kyle Turley:

"I don’t care who you are or who you’re talking to – that kind of question usually gets your [expletive] teeth kicked in," says former NFL lineman Kyle Turley(notes). "I mean, where do these people come from? That's just completely [expletive] classless and totally unprofessional."

And NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell should step in and stop this practice once and for all. Too many rookie players have been harmed by NFL team personnel staffers acting like knuckleheads. In an age of Twitter, YouTube, and blogs, Goodell needs to have these teams clean up their act.

Finally, was Silver within bounds? Yes. Jeff Ireland's a public figure. He's fair game. Mike Silver wasn't using a fake name either; he was rawly telling it like it is.

Good for Mike.

Louis Bardo Bullock - Sandra Bullock gives son Jewish circumcision

Louis Bardo Bullock is the name of Sandra Bullock's newly adopted black son from New Orleans. And as the World swoons over photos of happy mom and son, interesting news from the People Magazine exclusive interview are coming out. One is that Bullock gave son Louis Bardo a Jewish circumcision ceremony with "full on Jewish brit."

The rite of of circumcision is called brit milah and performed on the eighth day of a boy's life, according to, which reports:

Circumcision is commanded in Genesis 17:10-14 as an outward sign of a man's participation in Israel's covenant with God, as well as a sign that the Jewish people will perpetuate through him. The commandment is incumbent upon both father and child - fathers must see that their sons are circumcised, and uncircumcised grown men are obligated to perform the rite...During the ceremony the child is held by a person designated as the sandek, who is usually a grandparent or family rabbi. An empty chair is set aside to symbolize the presence of the prophet Elijah, who rebuked those who had forsaken the ritual. He now presides over all circumcision ceremonies to ensure the continuation of the ritual...Before the procedure, the infant may be given a couple of drops of wine to ease the pain. The mohel recites benedictions of circumcision, then the father offers the blessing.

What's interesting is that Sandra Bullock, isn't Jewish. Moreover, the mohel came to Bullock's home to perform the ceremony. (No word on the wine used.)

Sandra Bullock calls the private circumcision "the greatest moment I have ever had in my life" in People Magazine. Considering all the pain she's gone through with Jesse James in the cheating scandal, Bullock deserves more great moments.

Congratulations to her.

Sandra Bullock adoption, People Magazine, top Internet search

Related: sandra bullock adopts black boy, people magazine, sandra bullock baby, sandra bullock, bret michaels girlfriend

Sandra Bullock's adoption of 3-and-a-half-month old Louis Bullock, and People Magazine's exclusive story about it have topped Internet searches as of this hour. In fact, at this point the terms "Sandra Bullock adoption" and "People Magazine" are ranked one and two on Google Trends.

It proves that if traditional media captures an exclusive story and properly writes and installs it and distributes it online it can gain that kind of search placement.

The bet here is that People Magazine didn't deliberately know that was going to happen. But the reason it did happen, in part was that People Magazine's authors used the words "People Magazine" right in the body of the text about the Sandra Bullock adoption.

The result was to cause the name "People Magazine" to be boosted with links to the article and repeat mentions of People Magazine.

People Magazine has had exclusives on a number of hot stories, but never one where its name was ranked so high in a search.

Sandra Bullock update: Louis Bullock is adopted baby boy

Much as Sandra Bullock is getting a divorce from her husband Jesse James, Sandra's also becoming a new single mother to a baby boy named Louis Bardo Bullock according to People Magazine.

Louis is a 3-and-a-half month old, round bundle of bady boy joy that Sandra Bullock, 45, and Jesse James, 41, worked to adopt under secrecy four years ago. Louis was born in New Orleans, which means he's going to be a Saints fan since LA's lacking an NFL football team. But there's no word yet on who the original mother of Louis is or how he came to be Sandra Bullock's son.

In an odd way, Sandra Bullock's decision to adopt little Louis seems to both mirror her role as Leigh Anne Tuohy in The Blind Side and perhaps explains why she went after the role of the wealthy white Memphis business woman who takes in homeless black Michael Oher, who then becomes a football star at Ole Miss and now plays for The Baltimore Ravens.

Very interesting art-and-life intersection. Stay tuned.

Sandra Bullock divorces Jesse James; has adopted baby boy

Academy Award-winning Actress Sandra Bullock is divorcing her husband Jesse James after his alleged affairs became public, as did his interest in Nazi garb and other activities that caused some to ask if he was a closet white supremacist, as I explained in this video:

While Sandra Bullock was filming The Blind Side, for which she would win the Oscar for Best Actress, Jesse James was having an affair with Michelle "Bombshell" McGee. When it became clear that Jesse James was not leaving Sandra Bullock, Michelle "Bombshell" McGee went to tell her story to the tabloid Star Magazine for an alleged payment of $30,000.

The publication of that story sullied Sandra Bullock's Oscar glow and plunged her life into one colored by scandal as a parade of mistresses came out to say they slept with Jesse James, from Michelle "Bombshell" McGee, Melissa Smith, Brigitte Daguerre, and a fourth and fifth woman, one who reportedly was represented by a lawyer.

While Jesse James' life was being rolled out in an array of stories about cheating and his time at a sex-addiction clinic in Arizona (of all places) kept secret was the couples adoption of Louis.

Louis Bardo Bullock is a cute, 3-and-half month bundle of baby boy joy that People Magazine reports close friends and family knew about but kept a secret. Sandra will raise Louis as a single parent.

Stay tuned.

Folks, I found this on The New York Post and apparently she adopted a baby and it was the best kept secret yet in the Bullock -- James saga.  Go to link to see Sandra with her adopted baby.

Photos and more details including Bullock filing for divorce will be on news stands Friday in People and I am sure this edition fly off news stands based on the publics' interest in the girl next store and Oscar winning actress betrayed by bad boy husband.

Is Sandra Bullock  the next Angelina Jolie?

Greek Debt - Greece should suspend military spending

The Greek Debt Scandal is the news and Greece' economy is in trouble. The international credit crunch threw a spending choke chain around the World's 27th largest economy such that it's budget deficit and public debt have reached fantastic proportions.

A number of European countries are readying massive loan assistance programs to help in the Greek Debt problem, but given that Greece' credit rating is at a "junk" level there's no guarantee of a timely repayment

In the view of this blogger, the one best target is Greece military spending. It's 3 percent of the Gross Domestic Product; it should be reduced to one percent or less through a multi-year elimination of non-essential spending. Event if Greece has to go without a military save for paid soldiers, that move would make a large dent in spending.

The process of raising taxes from people who don't have jobs should be halted. Instead, Greece should dramatically increase tariffs on good imported.

The Greek Debt Scandal is threatening to plunge that country into a state of economic collapse. Greece does not need to spend money on war. Better to drop the system before its too late for everyone.

Stay tuned.

Tiger Woods mistress Joslyn James claims Tito Ortiz roughed up Jenna before post by Suzannah B. Troy

This story just gets uglier with one of Tiger Woods' porn star mistresses Joslyn James stepping forward claiming she witnessed Ortiz roughing up Jenna Jameson on several occasions.  Read The New York Daily News article where Ortiz is quoted as saying he is innocent and Jenna Jameson is an addict and unstable.  Ortiz states he had to call the police in December to prevent Jameson from killing herself.

Ortiz has people standing up for him including his ex-wife who he also has kids with.

TMZ has been on top of this story from the get go even supplying "he said", "she said" video tape interviews as Ortiz was lead out of his home by police and Jameson later exiting with her father.

And just to add more confusion to this story TMZ has a post of Jenna Jameson contradicting herself
giving two different accounts of what went on....

If you watch the TMZ series on this you will see Ortiz at a press conference and he states he is in fact innocent.  That he never laid a hand on her and in fact he has been supporting her dealing with an addiction to Oxycontin.  He is compelling.  Although Jenna's father is quoted in The NY Daily News article saying she is not addicted to anything but caring for her twin sons, in her book she describes what appears to be such an extreme addiction to a drug that she skin and bones and as I recall returns home to her father to be cared for by her family.

I have no idea how this story will be played out and if she was man handled or not.  I am sure we will hearing a lot more on Tito Ortiz and Jenna Jameson.
