I don't think anyone here is picking on Arnold. At this point in his 
life's success, for all practical purposes, he is beyond being picked 
upon. There may be people here who are revealing information about 
themselves in reaction to Arnold's activities ...

"We have met the enemy and he is us." Walt Kelly, Earth Day, 1970

If there were not so many drug-using Americans, not so many 
money-seeking Mexicans would be trying to sell drugs to Americans. 
Without so many drug-selling Mexicans, there would not be so many 
battles among the Mexicans over aspects of the American drug market, 
and those battles would not so often extend themselves into Arizona, 
with fatal consequences on both the American and Mexican sides of the 

The Arizona populace's reaction to Mexican immigration pressure is as 
much a consequence of Americans' needs for drugs, for agricultural 
laborers, and for inexpensive laborers generally, and of the strong 
Mexican willingness to supply those needs, as it is a reflection of 
preferences among Anglos and Latinos for their own cultures.

If there were not markets of voyeurs for Arnold's body-building and 
movies, he would not be the success he is today. If there were not 
markets for Mexican-supplied drugs and labor, Arizona, and other 
states, would not have some of the problems they have today.
