Arizona Escalates Immigration Fight By Suing Feds

Posted by ChiefJack Hawk on Friday, February 11, 2011, In : Illegal Immigration 
Arizona continues to lead the fight against illegal immigration in spite of the fact that the federal government is of the mindset that they can't do it.  You'll recall that last year the state tried to pass sweeping anti-illegal immigration legislation that would have made it safer and save it tons of money by getting illegals out of its borders.  The Feds don't seem to want to stem the flow of illegals into this country and a federal court blocked key points of the Arizona laws.  On Thursda...

Posted by ChiefJack Hawk on Friday, September 3, 2010, In : Business 
Funk band War and PepsiCo just can't be friends.  Some of the band's original members are suing Pepsi for over $10 million, saying that the soft drink company never negotiated with them to use their song "Why Can't We Be Friends" in its commercial for Pepsi MAX.  Naturally, Pepsi says the suit has no merit, stating that "Pepsi has a long history of partnering with iconic celebrities and musicians, and we value our relationship with the music and entertainment industry".  The statement doesn't...

Store Chain Sued Over Pricing

Posted by ChiefJack Hawk on Friday, July 30, 2010, In : Business 
Discount store chain 99 Cents Only announced a price hike in September of 2008 to 99.99 cents per item, and now a class action suit has been filed against them.  The suit claims that the price hike means that people are unaware that they are paying one dollar per item instead of 99 cents.  This is patently untrue because the chain spent a fortune in advertising the new price, and even today, their ads and in-store signage clearly states the price of 99.99 cents.  It makes me wonder why these ...

Obama Clueless About What Americans Want

Posted by ChiefJack Hawk on Friday, July 9, 2010, In : Politics 
President Obama has no idea what his country wants, and that has never been more clearly revealed than by his stance about Arizona's proposed immigration enfoecement law.  That law, due to become effective later this month, makes it a crime to be in Arizona if you are an illegal immigrant, which is a federal law anyway.  Obama's administration is filing suit against Arizona to block implementation of that law despite the fact that across the country there is growing support for the state's st...
