“Shame on you!” Carlos Santana scolds Georgians and Arizonans for their “cruel” immigration laws.

Santana's T-shirt idol administers an apparently "humane" and "correct" law to what appear as obvious Billionaire/United Fruit/Tycoon/Latifundista/Batistiano/Gambling Casino-Magnates.

Carlos Santana received an award at a baseball game in Atlanta – and then used the stage to scold Georgia and Arizona for their harsh immigration laws.

The Grammy-winning artist, upon receiving the Beacon of Change Award before the Braves faced the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday, spoke out against the states, admonishing them for creating a culture of fear among immigrants.

"The people of Arizona, and the people of Atlanta, Georgia, you should be ashamed of yourselves," Santana said. "This law is not correct. It's a cruel law..."

    I guess it's lost on Santana that our immigration laws weren't too cruel to allow his family in legally.

    This overrated, over-the-hill asshole isn't worth the bother, but anybody who reveres a murderous psychopath like "Che" and proudly wears his effigy on national TV should really think VERY hard before he ever tells ANYBODY to be ashamed of ANYTHING. Of course, that presupposes the ability to think rationally, which is hardly a given with such a specimen. Ugh.

    Oh wonderful! Maybe Gloria Estefan can again use him for her next lamentable CD [how many copies did her previous one sell? A thousand?]. It wouldn't be a bad idea, his music might even drown out what has to be the worst voice since J-Lo took to singing.

    I mean, let's face it, Gloria couldn't hit a note if it was pasted to her nose.

    Now, Ray. It's not as if talent were actually required. They have studio technicians for that. If I had a nickel for every music "star" I wouldn't pay a nickel to hear perform, I could afford a $3K per night hotel room like French socialist Dominique Strauss-Kahn (though you'd better believe I wouldn't be stupid enough to attack the hotel maid when I could damn well afford a primo hooker).
