All this and without any credit to the Recovery and Investment Act!
Shame on you people .Your suppose to pull a plug for Obamanomics.
And with out their help.All this wouldn't be possible.
If you believe this.
You would believe all the lies spewing from the Capitol.
Knowing ,the burden put on the "rich" small business owner.
They are forging ahead.
And the biggest enemy they face right now is ,Washington.
I employed 7 people for three years.Up until Jan of 09.
I had no choice but to lay they off.
Under Pres. Bush i couldn't find enough hands to fill the positions.
Now, under this communist regime,King Hussein Obama.
All I get are phone calls.From people looking for work.
And dont give me the same old bs .About how Bush created this mess.
KIng Hussein and all his comrades controlled both houses of Congress in 06. And you same Bush hating libs voted them back in office in 08.
Bush may have made us hated even more by our worldwide enemies.And so called allies.
But Obamas making us a complete joke.
Hype and change you can believe in!
Back to the article.
These people are the backbone of America.
They actually know how to create "real" sustainable jobs.
Vote responsible commonsense conservitism in '10.
And the jobs will return.
In the end.
Both parties have too many parasites.To ever be the parties they were ment to be.
Its no longer "We the People".
Its become " We the Lobbyists"
Thank God for honest hard working individuals.
Without them this article and the jobs added to our local economy.
Wouldn't be possible.

Stick to the issues at hand!

Until oil and gas rebound here, our economy will suffere dramatically. Thanks to our friends on the reservation, Farmington weekends are profitable, but that may not last long. It's going to take more people working to make these businesses profitable. As things continue to slide downhill, people will have no choice but to move elsewhere to get work. As it looks now, it's only just begun.

Open your eyes. It is great that there are some commercial ventures opening up in our area. But hold off on your criticism of the Recovery Plan - it wasn't designed to open commercial ventures. Instead, in our area it is helping to fund those other kinds of essential projects - roads, sewer lines, schools, etc. These projects will provide construction jobs (in addition to needed infrastructure improvements), which will in turn allow people a chance to spend $$$ at commercial ventures (maybe you own one?). There is plenty of blame to go around on both sides of the aisle for the current state of our economy. Your vitriolic rant is irrational and incoherent.

I hope these business's can make it. Empty store fronts don't encourage new business to start up.
I would hope the City/County encourage these type instead of pushing, and giving tax dollars, for pie in the sky windmills etc.

But if you remember it was sold as a jobs creating stimulus.
3 million jobs will be created .Once its signed into law.
My point is.
private individuals ,not goverment creates jobs.
These business owners are investing ,in some cases everything.On a business.
And you know what?
Obamanomics ins't gonna be there to bail them out when they fail!
Its hard not to get emotional on this issue.
Knowing ,you have to layoff people with families and bills to pay.
I ask everyone of u .who believe in the reckless spending in Washington.
If you believe you can spend your way out of debt.
Why dont you give it a try?
lets see how far you go .And after your drowning in debt .Ask King Obama for a bail out.
I'd give you everything I own if you did come out ahead.
And if you read my rant about blame I did blame both parties.
But most of all I blame the millions of Americans. Who condon our elected official's behaviours.
By voting them into office every election cycle.
And as for my incoherancy!
My thoughts outpace my typing skills.
I'm all for intelligent debate.
Jus like you libs.
Attack the messenger not the message.

Farmington is made by REZ people. Every weekend they be driving in from AZ,UT,COLO,NM. look at those license plates. Go to the auto salvage yards on Saturday, it is full of REZ do-it-yourself mechanics. They actually have to chase the REZ people out when it's closing time. Pawn shops are REZ made. Go to Big Rock, it's full of REZ people, also Sweetmeat and Valley Trading Post are full of REZ people buying good meat,BA,BA. Also the UTES come into town from Colorado,some driving LEXUS. Also the Jicarilla's drive west to F town, to eat Chinese food. FARMINGTON = REZ TOWN.

Love Farmington and Bottom Ash, isn't it ironic that the very town and people who are so racist toward the Native Americans rely so heavily on natives to keep them in business?
Good point, both of you.

The ARRA (Stimulus) program is a dismal failure. It was touted by the Obama administration as the cure for the rising jobless rate. Obama's folks are cooking the books regarding the jobs "created and saved" trying to convince the ignorant masses that it "would have been much worse without it". The only industry that is growing is the Federal Government. The Bush tax cuts will be allowed to expire and we will see further tax increases for companies and middle-class families as prices for goods soar. The Red Chinese "Gang of Four" now has their equivalent in the United States. Our Gang of Four are Obama, Reid, Pelosi, and Geitner.

Speaking for yourself, I presume. People are people and most people don't see any difference.

Speak for yourself. Racism is alive and well in Farmington, NM and is a nationally recognized problem for our town.
Check out the many hate-filled, racist blatherings toward Native Americans just right here in these Topix forums.
They're all over the place, except when admins have to remove them.

Thank you Str8talk Wolfe, for telling it like it is.
Read front page of Albuquerque Journal this morning,
Losing Our Golden Egg--NM Oil,Gas Revenues
shrinking due to tougher regulations, Environmental
(Tree Huggers) who have our Governor and State
Legislature in their back pocket have caused this
resulting in the loss of 1000 jobs in San Juan
County. example of what a government run by liberals
can do for us.

Hey thinker, why do you have to come into every forum and start this race crap? Bottom ash was making a very valid point about the Dine helping to sustain the Farmington economy. He said noting about race, racism or discrimination. Neither did any other post until yours. Racism and discrimination are rampant throughout the WORLD. Has been since the beginning of TIME. Quit stirring the pot on this forum. No one here but you is talking about racism. Go to a relevant forum.

Now it is very apparent to me that thinker is just out to stir the pot. After so many comments from her I was starting to question something that had happened to me, but now that I see she turned a comment about being thankful to Dine' into something racist, I see it is just her being the nut job that she is. Dorothy Nobis is that you thinker?

As a Navajo, I rather go to Farmington then Gallup. I get good service at places i shop and its much cleaner in Farmington then in Gallup.

This is withuot a doubt the most accurate right on the money post I have ever seen in a long time

'Despite recessionary times and a SLOWING economy, San Juan County continues to experience GROWTH with businesses EXPANDING their services and operations'.
This quote is like saying: despite worldwide temperatures cooling for the past 11 years,
global warming continues to experience growth with icebergs expanding their borders.
Meanwhile,'the seasonally adjusted unemployment rate in the Farmington Metropolitan Area, currently a 21-year high, was 9.6 percent in October 2009, up from 8.9 percent in September; 5590 workers are now unemployed in the area, loosing jobs at a rate of 410 per month and may be set for further increases'.

Someone needs to open a Job store and give out jobs, instead they open places that sell stuff to jobless people at outrageous prices and put them deeper in debt. The rich get richer, good old San Juan county. The only growth I see around here are stacks of unpaid bills.
