Arizona Laws

For years The State Of Arizona has been known for it's strict laws They made no bones about it and did not back down The old territorial prison, once there they did not want to go back Was not a "country club" for outlaws Gun fights and the OK Corral, back in the day in old Tombstone Town But it is not the same now, we are under attack "The Politically Correct", say in is the Drug Cartels in Mexico Isn't that so special, don't want to offend anyone Garbage, it is the drug smugglers of the Mexican Mafia But their Mafiaoso and our Mafiaoso seem to be more than amigo Mafiaoso is Mafioso is the same anywhere under the Sun Now their lawyers are causing all of this racial hysteria Mexico has a lot of good people and damn fine workers I have ranched and lived on the Mexican border for 60 years The ones that live and work here, leave them alone Solve the problem and go after the Mafiaoso drug smugglers The poor in Mexico know the Mafiaoso and have their fears One reason that they came here, because it scares then to the bone When a cowboy meets a rattle snake, he chops of the head off The problem is solved and he goes on his way I say give them two choices, nylon or grass rope When hung, that turns the problem off But some don't see it that way It would give all Americans more hope Some say that I am old, the old school and The Old Testement I believe a tooth for a tooth and a eye for a eye In the Old West, when a man stole a horse, he was hung back in the day But let God be the Judge, that is his department Our enemies are God less people, that they cannot deny They best thing that we can all do is pray

Interesting opinion in this one...I am ambivalent the death penalty....I feel that is a person is proven guilty beyond a shadow of a doubt that they should be given chances to make it right with their Maker...But I know that some people will never change...Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my short write...Sara
