Ft. Bliss plays a major role in the survival of El Paso and contributes to our economy extensively. However, there is not much to do here locally BUT drink and go to bars. We have one of the safest cities in the country, which is great. We have a new $65 million Ballpark going up----------whoooopeeee

First get rid of the anti-military politicians like Byrd and Ortega, stop the corruption via zero tolerance, develop and enforce out of district student policy, tell the world of the things we do have and there's plenty. But most el pasoans are jaded. Stop telling people that Juarez and El Paso are twins! Develop government policy that reflects el Paso's needs not Juarez. Most of all stop selling El Paso as a cheap labor force. Educate the work force and provide skills training. Enforce traffic laws vigorously, especially the no insurance and duct taped cars or extremely over loaded pick up trucks. Clean up the city, renovate not bulldoze!

Do all this and we might be able to change the county image ! Doubt it.

How sweet it would be

IF the voters,

in mean citizens voted,

elected folks with integrity

and put the NATION and STATE
before their outstretched begging hands.

Eliminate the parasites by eliminating the habitat.

FORT Bliss is tired of making elpaso look good.

Elpaso ought to pay their bills,
Drill their own water wells,
And stop thieving from the US Army.

Amen to that one. Elpaso is one big nothing if Fort Bliss were to close down this place would be a bigger nothing One big fat Zer0 nothing. Elpaso is getting a baseball team that will end up costing close to a billion dollars when all the crooks are rounded up trials ,lawyers courts for all the corruption on this ballpark. If Fort Bliss wants to market ElPaso maybe they could help a little also like pitching in for a air show to attract people. You could market ElPaso by saying go over to New Mexico close by we lost a lot of things to them cause they got tired of our taxes being raised and left. We used to have a real nice casino named speaking rock Las Vegas style gambling blackjack tables poker rooms good entertainment but we closed that down. We used to have a trolly that toke people over and back from Juarez every hour. But with all the killings over their had to shutter down can't market that any more. Going to Mexico used to attract people not any more can't market that. We have a Tram on the east side of the Franklins that is open 3days a week closed for 4 days. We still have a small zoo left but don't know for how long. And Viva ElPaso is playing this year could be its last. Market what Fort Bliss?

Wtf? El Pisso was here long before the fort bliss cowards showed up. In fact el pisso had to give fort bliss the land (lonoria mesa) that they originally settled on because the army was too broke to buy the land themselves. Read your history you pendejo.
