So will this make the news?

sSo, today I get a tweet on this story and have not heard about it anywhere else, yet.

In a time where the State of Arizona, along with other states of the union (man, I sould like a confederate when I talk like this), who are trying to assert their rights under the 10th Amendment, we have a response by POTUS: The Office of Urban Affairs.

First of all, if you read down to Sec. 6, this person really has no power. But will this stop them? No, they will intimidate, coerce and otherwise use the Oval Office as a tool to pass on their agenda to the States and to the operations of their metropolitan areas.

And since when is it the responsibility of the Federal government to regulate the operations of a city or township? Is that not the responsibility of the State? This is yet another step in the power-grab socialist agenda. Centralize power, limit the States ability to operate as a separate entity.

To me, this is a response, 'swift and bold' I'm sure, to the increasingly louder call by the States to the Federal government to "back off". Is this really the best time, with all the other problems, to add fuel to the fire behind the secessionist nutjobs? Do you really think this will bring unity?

I have posted this before, but it is a fitting quote:
"Try this thought experiment. Pretend you're a tyrant.
Among your many liberty-destroying objectives are
[...]Which would you prefer, a United States with political power
centralized in Washington, powerful government agencies
with detailed information on Americans and compliant states
or power widely dispersed over 50 states,
thousands of local jurisdictions and a limited federal government?" - Walter E. Williams.

Maybe it is Chicago Tea Party time.
