I received an e-mail (you know the type I mean) and usually don’t pass these things on, especially getting burned the last time through my own stupidity but I decided to check this information out.. There were numerous sites espousing the same verbege so I picked 2 to satisfy this post.
The first one here is what Representative Ayres stated in the Ozarks Sentinel. I especially think the sign is very telling of the attitude. The second one here deal with the laws themselves an the comments on them.. The most curious things about this is 1) why is there no Mexicans (odd that they mention a specific Latino group) in Missouri? Could they not find Missouri on a map? After all it IS the “show me” state and 2) the link to the article on the Sentinel site tells you “no page found” which happened from every site that linked back. I went directly to the horse’s mouth-The Ozarks Sentinel- and could not find it internally. That either means their archives do not go back that far (2010) or that the page was pulled.
It seems that Missouri has been doing fine for years with these laws (dating back to 2007) without the feds intervention but when they came up from under the radar, the ca-ca hit the fan. Now they too have numerous lawsuits looming and must defend states rights. It started under Obama before the 2010 elections and continues before these elections. I wonder if it has anything to do with political motivation?
