Foolish Law

Posted in Uncategorized by chamblee54 on January 26, 2011

In 1994, there was starting to be controversy about the Georgia State Flag . PG went to the microfilm files at the downtown library to investigate certain claims about the origin of this flag. Along the way, he saw a few things about the way Georgia government operated in 1956.

One of the things that caught his eye was a bill that was introduced to the Legislature. The bill would make it a felony to support integration. Laws that don’t make sense are proposed all the time.

There is currently a bill before the Georgia Legislature that deals with immigration. It is similar to the law in Arizona that has stirred up so much controversy. The proposed law here goes one step beyond.

“The bill also creates criminal penalties for any individual that encourages an illegal alien to come to Georgia or that transports or harbors an illegal alien once they arrive.”

And Marta thinks they have problems now. Pictures today are from The Library of Congress.
