The Immigant debate

Yea Moe, you tell it how it is. The Simpsons style (or should I say Arizona style) immigration law coming into play soon is on hold because of cost.

Which makes sense, you want to increase enforcement the taxpayer is going pay through the nose.

But I say forget that, let the Mexicans pay for the Mexican tax..... what? we do'n thave a mexican tax? Well how can we have a bear tax and not the Mexican tax? Oh, it's racists?!

I still opt for Simpson's style vigilance.....complete with stealth bombers and round the clock border patrols as far as the eye can see....

Or we could come up with a more holistic approach.

Teen Drivers in Utah to Lose Cell Phones

Explain to me how when you magically turn, say 25, that you can suddenly text and drive? I doubt there's concrete evidence, but I'm willing to go out on a limb and conclude that regardless of driving experience, texting while driving is harzardous just the same. A proposed Utah law would ban teen drivers from texting while driving (using any handset as well).

That's great news, but why stop there? It seems more of a way to get quick cash through some fines then it is to adjust behavior. The bill is being proposed for the second time by Sen. Ross Romero, D-Salt Lake.
