I'm talking about you being full of crap. You apparently haven't spent much time around Albuquerque, or watch the news for that matter, because there's illegal dumps all around the desert out here. Some have been used for decades. Ever driven south out towards Bosque Farms? Up on Pajarito, people don't have trash service, running water, sewage disposal, or even electricity at some places. It looks like little Mexico. But you still don't hear the bitching like from you. And what do mobile homes have to do with piling crap around your house or dumping trash in the desert? If you really want to be on topic, why are you complaining about what you don't like about where you live? I used to drive up the Farmington quite often on business, and it's nothing like what you describe. But some people just have to complain about their neighbors I guess.
Do you even read or understand what I posted? I don't think so. On your next visit to the four corners you may want to get out of Farmington, Bloomfield and Aztec, off the pavement, and out into the county. Drive some of the unpaved county roads and some of the oil & gas dirt roads. Take a look at some of the places I've been talking about. Until then, I think you're just a person who likes to jump in on forums and argue with others. Take a chill pill and if you have issues....get a punching bag.:)

I'm not the one bitching about where I live. You are the one comparing San Juan County to old Mehico, as if somehow where you live is worse than anyplace else in the country. Oil and gas dirt roads? You mean out where they WORK? How dare they keep equipment and materials in equipment and material yards. Knock off the crap and mind your own business, and in the meantime, get off the backs of the people who drive the economy up there. It ain't nothing like the grinding poverty of old Mehico.

Just happened to check back on this forum after not seeing it for a couple of weeks. As I thought it would, it's degenerated into everyone throwing out the race card, calling each other names, trying to debate on what should be allowed and what can be done with ones own property. How about this, why doesn't everyone just stfu and freakin clean up their rat holes? Several years ago after visiting Juarez, Mexico and seeing the filth and trash there, I couldn't believe an American town or city would ever look like Juarez. Well, here it is twenty years later and guess what? San Juan County's running a close race with Juarez. It's simple people...clean up your messes and DON'T take it out to the hills and dump it. We have a landfill and drop boxes all over the county, USE THE LANDFILL AND CLEAN YOUR CRAP UP!!!
It is sad N. New Mexico,can be equated with Juarez.Every time I visit it just gets worse. Could I suggest rewards for those reporting illegal dumping with a conviction?I'd be more than happy to face a violator in court. Disregard the Atom person's mean and negative comments.

The armpit of the country--made the list of high crime rate towns; NM ranks at the very bottom in education with Farmington leading the way; high cost of living; virtually nothing to offer culturally; lots of uneducated, poor people.....and highest percentage of mobile homes in th US.

Dirty, trashy looking little town.

What a desirable place to live.

I've been to Phoenix many times, my man, and you've got NOTHING at all to brag about. To be honest, I think I'd move to Juarez before I'd move to Phoenix.

Just focus on cleaning up your community. All areas are very nice if only people respected more of themselves and others. I don't think I need to go into the long laundry list of items for you?

Sure, let's hear the laundry list of what you find wrong with Tijeras and Albuquerque, and New Mexico in general, oh wise one. We all need to take advice from Oklahomans, because Oklahoma is OK!

As I suspected you don't really read other people's post. You must scan through them or you're seriously just wanting to argue with someone. I wasn't talking about well locations or oil/gas drilling. We love the drilling, puts money in our pockets and supports our community. All the illegal dumping is what I was talking about. Just a couple of days ago I came across a dump site that would rival our county dump, except it doesn't get bulldozed under and covered up. Mattresses, swing set, patio furniture and cushions, broken glass everywhere, beer cans, Walmart bags flying everywhere, clothes, bed frames, yard sale leftovers, cars. If you want to go take a look at the heap and see what you might like to take home with you it's approximately 3 miles out hwy 173 going toward Navajo Dam, take a left heading north on a well location road. It's not just a couple of people dumping in the last few weeks, it's like a regular dump site but not a county approved one. All of it's there, rotting and blowing over the countryside. Baling wire, dead animals, bones...who knows? You might find a treasure if you look hard enough. And that's not the only one, they're all over the area. And back to the mobile homes with no skirting, windows broken out and covered with cardboard, dogs chained out in the yard with no shade, food or water who are left there to rot on the end of a chain winter and summer for their whole lives. Filth and uncaring comes with the drugs that are taking over our county and it's getting worse everyday.

You make it sound like the problem is unique to New Mexico. It isn't. I'm from Illinois. Go out in the woods there, same problem. Arizona desert around any town, same thing. Nevada? All around Las Vegas, Henderson, etc. Been on many reservations? Same problems with run down houses EVERYWHERE. It's not a New Mexico thing, no matter whether you believe it or not. In reality, the "problem" is actually bigger in the midwest and southeast, where there are abandoned farms and homestead all over the place. Where do you think a lot of "antiques" come from. Been happening for centuries. Today's trash is tomorrow's collectibles. Nothing new here.

Agree. The problem is almost everywhere and has been a problem for a very long time. The only change is with our population growth and industrialization, it has magnified exponentially.

The really sad thing about the mobile home crisis...I've traveled all over Europe which is a lot older than the U.S. Been on the back roads, cities, everywhere because I drove from village to towns. No where do you see anything compared to the mess we have in the U.S. We've managed to screw this beautiful country up in a little over 200 years. Go us!!!
