Immigration, Lindsay Lohan, and Good Kisses

As I've said before, proof positive that many of the anti-immigrant folks are racist is their willingness to turn America into a police state to identify and remove illegal immigrants. It's one thing to oppose immigration in theory and quite another to be so anti-immigrant that you're willing to give up your own rights just for the off chance that some illegal immigrants will be caught. No where is the whiff of anti-immigration fascism stronger than Hazleton, Pennsylvania. Because of a court ruling, they've lost a battle. But they will probably win their war.
A federal judge on Tuesday blocked the city of Hazleton from enforcing a pair of ordinances targeting illegal immigrants, just hours before the measures were to go into effect.

The measures, approved by City Council last month, would have imposed fines on landlords who rent to illegal immigrants and denied business permits to companies that give them jobs. They also would have required tenants to register with City Hall and pay for a rental permit.
These laws clearly are oppressive. But I think it's legally dubious to suggest they're unconstitutional. Unless there's a 9th Amendment right not to be required to report who you're renting your apartment to. And that would be a really broad reading of the amendment. I used to think that the 9th Amendment protected my right to break into Lindsay Lohan's house and wear her underwear. But the Supreme Court ruled against me. For a bunch of people who basically wear pajamas to work those justices sure can be tight-asses. Anyway, you can't blame a guy for trying. Especially when she's making comments like this:
"Sex And The City changed everything for me because those girls would just sleep with so many people. And that's me. I'm not dating just one person. It is the variety of partners everyone likes, especially at my age. I'm like Angelina Jolie, taking on lovers. I don't need a steady relationship. I mean if the sex is bad, the relationship's not going anywhere. Anyway, I don't even think I have had my best kiss yet. "
Since we haven't kissed yet, I can vouch that she has yet to have her best kiss. And as soon as I reverse this restraining order we will be kissing up a storm.

Superficial Link to Lindsay Lohan in pajamas here. And while we're at it, a glimpse of Avril Lavigne's panties. To cool you off, here's a picture of Suzanne Somers after she was touched by Goldfinger.
