Chechen-shamed uncle, the Boston bombers and immigration reform
Written by 

chechen-uncle“Somebody radicalized them, but it wasn’t my brother” 

 “What I think was behind it: Being losers” 

The words from an incredible interview with the uncle of the two suspects of the Boston Marathon bombing.

Incredible, but also troubling for many reasons.

The uncle, Ruslan Tsarni talked with reporters from Montgomery Village, Md.  disassociates himself from his nephews, says he is embarrassed, appears to call them losers and says he has not seen them for years.

From the interview, Tsarni has found success in this country and expresses his love and devotion for America.

He has won but his brothers' family did not.  Which duality just might underscore the tensions underlying another drama unfolding on the world political stage and upon our nation's capitol today--the future of immigration reform. 

to date, most of the opposition to the compromise reform legislation headed by Cuban-nationality Republican U.S. Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, has been against the Hispanic community.  They are the faces behind the growth and social costs of the "despised" illegal immigration.     

Today, however, the immigration issue is not just Hispanic.  The young men accused of the horrific Boston disaster, the city symbolic of American patriotism are Chechen.  Their family are from Chechnya.

So, how will this revelation of immigrants inflicting terror upon us play out  on a matter before Congress today?

Here is a quote from a poster on Google+, whose expressions of anger and hate could resonate especially due to the Boston Massacre and due to decades of middle eastern terror.

Hopefully these words reflecting a xenophobic attitude could be from a mere minority of Americans and only as an emotional response from this week's tragic events. It might, however, be indicative of just how the Boston bombing could massacre the present and future hopes of millions wanting to be winners in a land born of huddled masses and immigrants.

mass2On July 4, 1778, George Washington doubled liquor rations for the soldiers quartered in Princeton, NJ, as a way to celebrate Independence Day. It’s fitting, therefore, that the Fourth of July is America's top-selling beer holiday, according to the Beer Institute. It estimated, in 2013, that sales of beer on the 4th could total $1 billion, doubtlessly higher today. “In moderation,” claims a CA brewery investor, Grover McKean, “beer is tasty and healthy.” Who could disagree?

joe mikaAs Donald Trump faces the top world leaders this week, including a face-time with Vladimir Putin, and as his healthcare proposals face an uphill climb, his poll numbers for how the nation views him could be better.

According to a morning Consult/Politico poll released Wednesday morning, his tweets, including that against MSNBC's Mika Brzezinski, and his personality are not helping him, at all.

indy dayII know the calendar says we are approaching the 4th of July, but, it just doesn’t feel like Independence Day.

Perhaps it should.  It’s hot as heck.  The airlines have been packed. The hot dogs are ready for grilling.  The umps are saying, "play ball". The patriotic activities are scheduled. The fireworks are ready-for-blasting. 

Yet, it just doesn’t feel like independence day.

bill rights2To President Thomas Jefferson, July 4th celebrated more than the signing of the Declaration of Independence. He thought it was a link to the future. The message prominent colonists sent to King George III led to the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, the initial and most prominent feature of which is the First Amendment that guarantees free speech. It’s part of the country’s fundamental essence that each man and woman can say what they feel about government, or anything else, proving President Donald Trump needs some civics lessons.
