Left Coast Lunacy

You know, throughout the course of my life, I've often found it useful to not openly, and actively defy, or announce my defiance, of federal mandates. Not so, Mr. Gavin Newsom, Mayor of San Francisco.

It seems Mr. Newsom is a might perturbed at the idea that the US Government might want to enforce the immigration laws, and perhaps curb the overwhelming tide of illegal immigrants that are showing up these days.

But that doesn't matter to Mr. Newsom, champion of the down-trodden, savior of the weak, the weary, and the vote-casting political groups that keep him in the employ of the city.

“San Francisco stands foursquare in strong opposition to the rhetoric coming out of Washington, D.C.,” Newsom said. “If people think we were defiant on the gay marriage issue, they haven’t seen defiance.”

Stay tuned, kids. I've got a feeling that this one will make for some rather interesting reading, and hopefully viewing, in the near future.
