10 AM Automatic

Normally I like to stay politically ambiguous. Its been my experience that no matter what anyone's intentions are in conversations about politics, it always ends in anger, rage, and ranting.

Once I told people who I was voting for. This was safe because I was not voting for either of the major runners. Like if I had said, "I'm voting for Barack Obama," people that hate him/democrats would have said, "what?? I'm burning your house down!!!" If I had said, "I'm voting for John McCain," people that hate him/republicans would have said, "what?? I'm finding you and cutting you up into tiny little pieces!!!" I said, "I'm voting for Bob Barr," and people said, "who's that?" shrugged, and decided to read something else.
I think this is for the best, I can't handle arguments of the political rant type. They cause a short circuit in my brain that ends up with me crying in the corner while rocking back and forth in the fetal position. (I know, I know, you're thinking, "then why are you in law school?" Don't ask me about that, you'll stress me out.) I voice my political opinion in other ways, like, you know, voting.

So, I have thought long and hard about posting this post, at the risk of alienating anyone that will read it, disagree, and decide I am a soulless automaton. I'm posting it, and turning off comments. You have a first amendment right to disagree with me, call me a cannibalistic baby killer who has been brainwashed by Canadians, and tell everyone you know that you and I can never be friends again because I hate dolphins. Just go do it somewhere else, like your kitchen.

As you know, I'm heading home to my beloved home state soon.
As you may also know, people have been hatin' on AZ lately.
I'd like to express how I feel with the help of some sweet southern rock.

Big wheels keep on turning
carry me home to see my kin.
Singing songs about the Southwest
I miss Arizona once again 
and I think its a sin.

Well I heard Obama complain about her
Well, I heard Barack he put her down.
Well I hope that Barack will remember
This western girl don't need him around any how.

Sweet home Arizona
where the skies are so blue.
Sweet home Arizona,
Lord, I'm coming home to you.

Now in the Valley they love the governor
now she did what she had to do
SB 1070 does not bother me
does your conscience bother you?
Tell the truth.

Sweet home Arizona
where the skies are so blue.
Sweet home Arizona
Lord I'm coming home to you.
Here I come Arizona.

Now South Phoenix has got some crime rates
illegal immigrants are kidnapped too.
Lord they're selling drugs so much
The federal government is useless too
now what to do?

Sweet home Arizona
where the skies are so blue
sweet home Arizona
Lord I'm coming home to you.

Sweet home Arizona
(oh sweet home baby)
where the skies are so blue
and the governor's true
Lord I'm coming home to you.
