arpaiotank(PNS reporting from ARIZONA) Racist Sheriff Joe Arpaio claims the Federal Government’s decision to reclaim “surplus” military gear (like tanks [photo] and M16 rifles) transferred to his department is no big deal since he has already procured new weapons to replace the full-auto rifles Uncle Sam wants back.

“Hell no! We don’t need tanks and M16s for these illegals,” the Maricopa County, Arizona lawman told reporters Wednesday. “We’re getting ethnically-appropriate personnel compliance effectuators from local manufacturers. I am told these things give Mexicans the FEAR!” [Mas…]

*UPDATED: Ms. Capps removed her video from public scrutiny on YouTube. We have substituted a copy we downloaded last night, anticipating that the original video might somehow disappear.

ANOTHER UPDATE:

UPDATE NUMERO TRES SCREENCAP 2:30PM (original page below):

gone

tressyColdwell Banker Western Properties Realtor™ Associate Tressy Capps (photo, right) of Ontario, CA, confronted a neighbor who displayed a Mexican flag, saying it was “disrespectful,” reminded that neighbor that “we live in America,” suggested her neighbor “move to Mexico” and then uploaded a video of the encounter last week.

NEWSFLASH for Tressy:

The Flag Code … does not forbid you from displaying a foreign flag. For example, someone with Irish heritage may proudly fly an Irish flag and is not required to fly the US flag. In the early 1900s there was hostility when the German flag was flown in the US, prompting Theodore Roosevelt to state that we had one flag, and one language. We are again revisiting tensions, this time it is the Mexican flag. We understand the emotional tensions of the situation, however, the Flag Code does not support those who wish to forbid the flying of the Mexican flag within our borders without also flying the US flag.

Here’s Ms. Capp’s contact information copied and pasted from her Coldwell Banker page if you need help with real estate in Ontario: [Mas…]

It’s International Talk Sing Like A Pirate Day and we’re please to present not only a “sea shanty” about being a pirate, but one about the Mexican-American war of the 1850s. It’s even in Wikipedia! This video of Santy Anno has music by Forebitter and Lord Cavendish manga-influenced artwork assembled by uploader LordDrakoArakis, probably not his real name.

Here’s the some of what Wikipedia says about this traditional song: [Mas…]

SoCal pochos Cutty Flam say their music is the sound track to a 1950′s B-Movie starring Ritchie Valens opposite Betty Page directed by Quentin Tarantino. Señor Cutty sings and plays guitar, Ms. Bang Bangs kicks butt on vocals and drums and Chewy Lewy is the man on bass. In Sugga, a black and white home movie from the future, Cutty Flam saves themselves (or their body doubles) from a sky burst of meteorites with a white box of something that’s not wrapped in aluminum foil and doesn’t attract falling prop rocks. Also there is a greedy music promoter, a life support transfusion, a dead band member RIP, auditions, more aluminum foil and surf style guitar. We know — it’s everything you ever wanted in a music video. Plus Spanglish!
