Some people just don't know how to pick fights.
For those of you that don't hang out in some of Reno's "Finer Downtown Drinking Establishments" down on 4th Street, you may not understand this: When some little smart ass shoots off his mouth and wants to "take it outside", you should be suspecious. Either he is a black belt, packing some heat or has about 3 other dudes out there waiting for you. To beat you up. He has a reason. After the 3rd time, I stopped falling for it.
So when Dean Heller, our worthless Congressmen, sends out an email announcing he is introducing a Bill that would require all Ballots in the US to us English Only, Zeke smirks.
CLEARLY Disco Dean is trying to define Derby as a "Pro-Illegal Immigrant" candidate while taking the discussion away from his HORRIBLE record in Congress these past 2 years.
Even though Zeke doesn't really understand why this is an issue to Democrats, as it is a requirement that prospective Citizens learn English no matter WHERE they arrive from, I expcet it may include some silly rationalization that minorities are less likely to vote if it isn't in their language and that would hurt the "Big Tent" Dems. I wonder if it's just something they hear others say, so they go along with it.
Obviously Heller is using the Bill as a code to his "Base" of chickens*** alarmist, White, Rural voters who will bite on his Hook of Fear.
Of course Derby and the Progressive community doesn't have to automatically oppose his idea, or even mention it. At all.
If you ask me, this Bill is just another example of what Heller thinks he was elected to do, and shows how out of touch he is with us and our problems. His bills so far are "English Only, Pork for Reno's Train Trench and Stronger Dog Fighting laws.
HEY DEAN! HOW ABOUT...
War in Iraq? Nope.
Credit Problem? Nope.
Housing Crisis? Nope.
Dean Heller is lost in the woods. Should we send Derby out with a Posse to find him?
