I have done radio shows with experts on immigration, on the Dream Act, laws like 1070 that have gone in effect elsewhere and been changed or removed because of the horrible results. I have posted here, and other places about the real problems and broke down who these people are, shown the comparisons between Jim Crow and this Juan Crow Law, but with limited reactions, with little of the facts being used. I have noticed there is little listening to this issue anymore, little interest in getting in depth on solving it, but instead one side yells racism, the other side yelling they should become citizens, but when the facts are introduced both sides seems to mostly run for cover.

I am reairing a show tomorrow that I did back in May with someone involved with the Dream Act, Immigration here in Arizona, and one who admits she and her husband both will have their rights limited by this law. She also tells how the law had already started to affect Hispanic Americans and also the State as a whole economically. The loss of the Hispanic Community spending in this state alone has already started to hurt businesses and will continue to do so more than the boycotts and yet even with such evidence as 9500 Liberty at YouTube and now Liberty Arizona, seems our efforts to get out real facts are doomed. This show tomorrow is my last show. We are shutting down due to the fact we are listener supported and frankly we just aren't getting the help from our progressive friends to offset the cost. It is with regret that I end my work because the Progressive community can't in some cases, and won't in others support Progressive radio. I do take some comfort in the fact that like us, other progressive shows and networks are in the same boat and will be forced to shut down so it isn't just us. I wish we could support our own better and if we can stop fighting each other long enough to work as a team, we could get some of our dreams to become reality, but sadly I will not be able to take to the airwaves to get that done.

I will continue to post here (at least for awhile) and do what I can to stop this 1070, but it will be harder now since our network will fall silent, not from the right wing, but because of lack of support from Progessives. I have to honestly say, I wonder really how much we want our dreams to become reality, how much do we like the right wing domination of the airwaves since we fail to support our own voices.
