AZ Backs Away from Immigration Laws; CA to Give In-State Tuition to Illegals?; AT$T Gets 42,000 Unionizable EmployeesSODEXO Targeted by SEIU; Obama Budget Misleads; American Conservation Youth Corps; Quotes about Obama; Imperialist Warmonger; How to Work the Union System; War Powers Acto of 1973

From UPI: 
The Arizona Senate, under pressure from business groups, has rejected a package of five bills aimed at curbing illegal immigration. Thursday's vote was a major change of course in the state, which adopted a law last year requiring police to investigate suspected illegal immigrants, The New York Times said. One of the bills that failed would have required hospitals to report to police patients who might be in the country illegally, and another resolution attacked the provision in the U.S. Constitution for "birth-right citizenship" for all children born within U.S. borders.
The Republican state Senate President Russell Pearce pushed for the bills' approval. But another Republican, state Sen. John McComish, told the Times "enough is enough."
Congressman Campbell [of California] has signed
Washington Legal Foundation’s amicus curiae (friend of the court brief) to U.S. Supreme Court arguing against the state of California’s discriminatory practice of offering in-state tuition to illegal aliens, while charging higher tuition rates to out-of-state U.S. citizens.
Redstate writes: Sunday’s breaking business story is the announcement that unionized AT&T will be buying union-free T-Mobile for $39 billion. With 42,000 mostly union-free employees, German-owned T-Mobile has long been a target of the red-shirted Communications Workers of America. Now, as the mostly unionized AT&T Mobility has agreed to allow the CWA to unionize its employees without secret-ballot elections (via neutrality and card-check), the red-shirted union bosses are seeing the green that will likely come from T-Mobile’s employees.  With 42,000 unionizable T-Mobile employees and the potential of raking in 1.3 percent of their paychecks—an estimated $15 million in union dues each year—top union boss Larry Cohen wasted no time on Sunday declaring the union’s interest in unionizing the T-Mobile employees: http://www.redstate.com/laborunionreport/2011/03/20/att-to-buy-t-mobile-union-targets-15-millionyr-in-dues-through-card-check/
Redstate writes: For more than a year, Sodexo has endured being targeted by the SEIU. Being on the SEIU hit list for the company’s refusal to turn its workforce over to the purple behemoth, the SEIU has (allegedly) engaged in rallies, unlawful retaliation against Sodexo employees, as well as other, equally ugly, tactics such as:
  • Throwing plastic roaches onto food being served by Sodexo USA at a high profile event;
  • Scaring hospital patients by insinuating that Sodexo USA food contained bugs, rat droppings, mold and flies;
  • Lying to interfere with Sodexo USA business and sneaking into elementary schools to avoid security;
  • Violating lobbying laws to steer business away from Sodexo USA, even at the risk of costing Sodexo USA employees their jobs; and
  • Harassing Sodexo USA employees by threatening to accuse them of wrongdoing.
Now, Sodexo appears to have had enough.
On Thursday, Sodexo filed a civil lawsuit against the SEIU under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act (more commonly known as RICO). http://www.redstate.com/laborunionreport/2011/03/18/sodexo-slaps-seiu-cockroaches-with-rico-suit/
Yahoo Finance reveals: A new assessment of President Barack Obama's budget released Friday says the White House underestimates future budget deficits by more than $2 trillion over the upcoming decade.
The estimate from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office says that if Obama's February budget submission is enacted into law it would produce deficits totaling $9.5 trillion over 10 years -- an average of almost $1 trillion a year.

The difference is chiefly because CBO has a less optimistic estimate of how much the government will collect in tax revenues, partly because the administration has rosier economic projections.
But the agency also rejects the administration's claims of more than $300 billion of that savings -- to pay for preventing a cut in Medicare payments to doctors -- because it doesn't specify where it would come from. Likewise, CBO fails to credit the White House with an additional $328 billion that would come from unspecified "bipartisan financing" to pay for transportation infrastructure projects such as high speed rail lines and road and bridge construction.  http://finance.yahoo.com/news/CBO-Obama-understates-apf-1323525507.html?x=0&sec=topStories&pos=5&asset=&ccode=
Gateway Pundit reveals: THEY NEVER STOP
Just when you thought this radical administration was ready to cut back on their socialist agenda they surprise you with another shockingly radical initiative.
Team Obama announced this week the formation of their American Conservation Youth Corps.
Through the 21CSC America’s young people will be indoctrinatoed to play a key role in “reducing the impacts of climate change on our natural resources.”  http://gatewaypundit.rightnetwork.com/2011/03/unreal-obama-adminstration-announces-creation-of-conservation-youth-corps-of-america/
Real Clear Politics publishes these quotes:  Michael Moore tweets that President Obama should return his Nobel Peace Prize after he approved military strikes on Libya.......
Newt Gingrich says: "What leads you to believe that if he stayed home and spent every day in the White House it would be any better? This is an amateur team engaged in amateur opportunism and I think there is no evidence that they have a clue what they are doing. It is truly a little frightening. You know, you can be fairly incompetent domestically and it increases the deficit or weakens the economy, but if you are incompetent in national security matters it has really big long term problems," Newt Gingrich told Laura Ingraham on her show today.

Lt. Col. Oliver North says French President Sarkozy forced President Obama's hand because they were going to go in with or without him. North says that is when Obama sent Secretary of State Clinton in, but the strike against Libya was inevitable at that point.  "Obama Has Made Sarkozy Leader Of The Free World."
Townhall writes: It seems like it was just yesterday when we had an "imperialist warmonger" in the White House who was going to be replaced by a peace-loving Democrat who promised "hope" and "change" instead. It's funny how that worked out, isn't it? We still have troops in Iraq, we've escalated the war in Afghanistan, and now we're bombing everything that moves in Libya. Yet, the same liberals who were protesting in the streets and calling George Bush a war criminal have mostly been meek and quiet about the fact that the President they supported has been following in George Bush's footsteps. http://townhall.com/columnists/johnhawkins/2011/03/22/7_questions_for_liberals_about_obamas_libyan_war/page/full/
Here is how it works for many teachers, according to Arizona Central: Phoenix's Isaac School District, which plans to shutter schools and lay off employees because of money problems, will let Superintendent Carlos Bejarano retire June 30 and return to his same job - with the same compensation and perks - the next day.
Bejarano, 58, will retain his $130,000 annual salary, an $8,400 car allowance, an $8,000 annual tax-deferred annuity, and a $3,000 community-affairs allowance to use at his discretion. The district also will give him $11,238 so he can buy health-insurance coverage, according to district officials.
Bejarano will receive an annual pension estimated at $104,650 after retiring with 35 years of service, records reviewed by The Arizona Republic show, bringing his total annual compensation to roughly $265,000.
Examiner.com writer asks: So here's the $64 question -- what if US military involvement in Libya goes beyond the 90 day limit that the Commander in Chief has, as mandated by the War Powers Act of 1973?
