It would make sense that liberal states around the nation would aid ICE in rounding up illegal aliens, housing the homeless, rehabilitating the drug-addicted, and cleaning up the streets.

ALBUM OF THE DAY AT THE AICPENDBLOG.COM:
Phil Manzanera released his fourth solo album, “Primitive Guitars” in 1982. Always among the most eclectic and innovative guitarists in the world, Manzanera always attempted to play the guitar in ways in which, it did NOT sound as though it was a guitar. We love the second part of the Roxy Music triumvirate’s amazing guitar chops and this album rocks the socks off the uninitiated and sends the ‘initiated’ to the moon. Please, look for this phenomenal musical offering as it is one for the ages. Any modern crap you may have been duped into buying pales in comparison to the fist opening chords. You will love it.
