It's Getting HOT in Phoenix

Memorial Day sentiments displayed by (from left)’s Todd Hartley, Rusty Childress, and Buck Younger with Riders Against Illegal Aliens (throwing in a couple extra fingers) supporting veterans, military, border patrol and law enforcement, also included expressions of disdain toward representatives who ignore or lie to their constituents.

PHOENIX – Memorial Day began before 6 a.m. for numerous patriots, who lined Cave Creek Road just south of Pinnacle Peak Road, around the corner from the entrance to the National Memorial Cemetery, in a pre-memorial to honor the veterans amongst them and the heroes who died for them, and to protest against government leaders, whom they feel are betraying the American people. Rusty Childress’ Riders United for a Sovereign America (Riders USA) arrived on motorcycles flying American flags in support of our veterans, military, border patrol and law enforcement. Along with signs that read, “American Veterans Our Heroes” and “American Veterans are America’s Backbone,” there were some directed at the current administration, including a banner from Bob Park’s organization www.Veterans that read, “Mr. President, They Didn’t Die For Open Borders.” There were signs reflecting the push is still on to free border agents Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean and there was a sign with a picture of Sen. Jon Kyl, RAriz., giving “the finger” that read, “Kyl’s Message to America.” It was a week of turmoil in Arizona after Kyl angered party leadership and constituents, when he signed on with support of the Ted Kennedy, DMass./ President Bush amnesty bill that would give instant legal status to the 12 to 20 to 30 million illegal aliens in the country. No one from either side of the immigration debate had much good to say about most components, but in the grand scheme of coming up with a compromise bill, that generally seems to be the end result; a little something to make everyone unhappy. Arizona Republican Party Chairman Randy Pullen denounced the bill and Kyl for backing it. Meanwhile, Rep. Russell Pearce, RMesa, called for Sen. John McCain, RAriz. to resign, citing he was too busy running for president to represent his constituents as he’s been absent from voting on numerous items.

On May 21st there was an historical 24 hour protest in front of Sen. Jon Kyl’s office in Phoenix. Both parties need to know if they vote for this bill they are committing not only political suicide, but treason. I joined the demonstrators for 16 hours.

It got pretty warm that day!!

Hi Sally! Do you know where we can get a larger electronic pic of “Kyl’s Message to America”?

Hmmm, lets see. Check with Buffalo. Maybe he can email you one. :-) Or bring your camera Thursday night and take your own picture from Buffalo's huge collection of posters. :-)
