As I learned last year, besides honoring those loved ones who have passed, some participants choose to make political statements. Just so they meet the rules of the parade which one is no one may participate in the parade if they are not either wearing make-up or a skull mask.
Arizona Governor Jan Brewer published a book on November 1, 2011, called Scorpions for Breakfast | My Fight Against Special Interests, Liberal Media, and Cynical Politicos to Secure America’s Border. The title of this book does not set well with me. Naturally, we are aware of her hatred towards illegals from Mexico and has affiliations with CCA (Corrections Corporation of America), a private prison industry, in order to lock up and profit from the illegals arrested due to AZ HB1070 – which has been stopped by the US DOJ as well as other Federal Courts. This portion of her book title is no surprise.
Private prisons are one of the largest corporations in history to profit directly from the misery of people, and now they want to buy out state-ran facilities. The main stream media is not helping matters either as they simply sweep the details under the rug, and promote the false notion that criminals get what they ask for. Most American citizens live under the philosophy simply because they grew up hearing, “Lock them up and throw away the key.” What would you think if you found out that most of the inmates in private prisons really do not belong there? Not in prison, anyway. Laws are being created due to the heavily financed lobbying by CCA and GEO Group which are purely passed to increase the prison population. Why? Because for every inmate housed, those who own stock in a private prison profit each day per each inmate. There are no losses… pure profit.
At least one utility company in Alabama posted a sign informing its customers that a section of Alabama’s extreme anti-immigrant law prohibits them from providing water service to undocumented immigrants. According to the sign at Allgood Water Works in Blount County, Alabama, customers must have “an Alabama driver’s license or an Alabama picture ID card on file” by the date that the immigration law went into effect; otherwise, they risked losing their water service.
