Great!

Now get to work boys and girls and cut the budget.

Don't raise taxes, or fees, or allow any local governments to do such.

We are in a deep recession, and prudent measures need to be taken.

Now.

And don't bend over for Bill.

This morning on Regis and Kelly their trivia question was, " What is the official tie of New Mexico?"
I thought bolo ties were out nowadays? I haven't been home in 5 years I was sure old men tucked those away, at least my dad did!

Here in New Mexico we are taking the collapse of the world as we know it most seriously. >>>>
Next House bill: How high can we make the dias where we speak against webcasting our new finery?
Proposal for a Committee to Oversee the Formation of a Task Force to Investigate Appointment of a Subcommittee to Expedite Removal of Undearwear to be Tossed on the Propsed Taos Bridge Safety Net?
These are the PRESSING issues I pay my represented officials for, ensure they are better covered medically than my own family, and give them pensions for life; so that when they are old they can sit in the sunshine and reminisce about the day they won the Bolo-Tie-War.
Must be nice ...

This is as relevant as the official state question: "red or green". Or is it "spit or swallow", I can't remember.
I do believe "swallow" was unanimously voted in as the most Politically Expedient back in '64.(With extensive Addenda and Codicils regarding Who-is-watching and What's-it-worth) Or was that the State Bird? Hmmmm?

What else should they be doing while waiting for a 'welfare' check from Obama and the rest of the Dems in Washington DC??

I'm embarassed to say that I laughed at this news piece. I personally always like a bolo tie depending on who wore it but to actually put it to a vote? Seriously? Okay, who was the defiant dude who swaggered in w/the bolo tie, ceremoniously slid the clasp and slapped that sucker down on the table with more authority and balls than a tried and true bones player?
