Well so much for freedom. Thank you Santa Fe Freaks for thinking that you and only you have the intelligence to do what is right for the rest of the state. What a joke.

The only reason we cannot have a casino here is Santa Fe, Alb. do not want the competition. They want the money up there because they do not like to be reminded that they are the descendants of Mexico's poorest people. They like to think they are from Spain and yes, some of them are.

They are all greedy frauds who need a good calling out.
