Let's hear you say "rush and reagan were wrong to support clinton as he signed off on NAFTA, just the way many conservatives wanted."

Those two "great Americans"........

You hypocrite.

You apparently didn't know what the initials for NAFTA stood for, or what the law was about, and you must have forgotten that your Democratic "elder statesman" Bill Clinton signed it into law.
Explain to us exactly what your problem with NAFTA is, and why you completely ignore your "elder statesman" Bill Clinton's role in having it become law. You DO know that President's must sign bills for them to become law, don't you? That's like fifth grade stuff.
"NAFTA means jobs, American jobs, and good paying American jobs. If I didn't believe that, I wouldn't sign this agreement." - President Bill Clinton, while signing the North American Free Trade Agreement.
Clinton could have vetoed NAFTA. The vote's weren't there to overturn a veto.
You must have also conveniently "forgotten" Al Gore's strong support of NAFTA. When Ross Perot was slamming NAFTA as the law that would create the "giant sucking sound" of jobs moving out of the USA, it was Gore who countered Perot and swung the debate in Clinton and Gore's favor. Remember the old "Larry King Live" special where Gore debated Perot? It was Perot who was against NAFTA, and Gore who supported it. The whole episode is on YouTube. NAFTA wouldn't have passed without Al Gore and that debate on TV.
Let's hear you say "Ross Perot was right about NAFTA, and Bill Clinton and Al Gore were wrong."
Don't facts hurt?

If the country ever gets a firm grip on mental health issues we'll all be protected from the likes of YOU.

Now back to a discussion on unemployment in NM and the potential for a win-win with green energy production here.

Yes, back to the discussion. Although 'green' renewable energy sounds good(from a number of articles based on propaganda); all those involved will play by the rules). That is why myself and others look out for the benefit of everyone.For example, wind turbines fragment the land. Let's get them out of the country and within the city limits.

Were you not so pathetic you'd be way too funny. I suppose you'd prefer we went back to living in freaking caves. Not once in ALL of your posts have you had anything coming near a potential solution or compromise to mankind existing on this planet and life in general. You bleed negativity. Seriously, have you any possible solutions or are you simply talking out your ass because your mouth knows better?

I guess you think jobs are not necessary and that mankind has no right to be on the planet hence have no need of jobs so the concept of unemployment is mute. What makes you think people have no right to live, just like critters? TG you are in the extreme minority when it comes to that train of thought.

YOU take pride in attacking others, yet offer no solutions that meet a compromise. Don't want to the the rules and act responsively? Then hush up and bake in the sun.

Cornholz is a public servant spending the workdays on Topix instead of being productive. It's a common occurrance in the public service sector.

And this, my friends, is how liberals shot themselves in the foot over "green energy", thus setting back large-scale utilization in the U.S. by decades, if not an entire century.

You really are pretty ignorant concerning how government works, aren't you?

Allow me to make it plain: New Mexico: State enacted Pit Rule = Loss of Natural Gas jobs, and loss of Natural Gas revenues.

Every other natural gas state: NO state enacted Pit Rule = MORE natural gas jobs, and greatly increased natural gas revenues.

The only difference? The state Pit Rule, enacted by Democrats in the New Mexico State Legislature.

If you still cannot understand the situation, there's nothing more I can do for you.

Since I've never stated my opinion of NAFTA here, it is impossible for me to be a hypocrite on the issue.

Are you stating, though, that Clinton was too weak to govern on his own, thus he caved in to conservatives? Interesting perspective. I guess that means Al Gore was to weak also? Then thank God Gore never become President!

Only to mental midgets like yourself. Now how about offering a solution? Everything anyone else proposes you shoot down or maybe that immature mind of yours is incapable of thinking that far in advance. I'm waiting... Focus now sonny, viable solution...

difference is that we are protecting the land and water better than other states which is more important in the long run and much more cost effective than cleaning up messes later when those that made it have run away. Energy prices fluctuate with actual demand (currently suppressed by the teabaggers in Congress deliberately sabotaging the recovery) and speculation.

No. New Mexico Democrats have OVER-protected the land and water from phony threats using scare tactics and junk science. The land and water was never in any great danger from oil or gas, or mining, or timber, precisely because nature does a very good job of cleaning up after itself. EVERYTHING that is extracted, mined, or logged was PUT there by nature. It is for OUR use. There is more mining, logging, and extraction going on in the world today than ever before, just not in the United States, and it's dirtier and more dangerous than ever in developing countries like India and China because they are emerging industrial powers who haven't learned what we in the United States HAVE learned about extracting oil, gas, and minerals in a safe and sound manner. So while liberals like you pat yourself on the back about shutting down extraction and timber in the U.S., you've actually made the world a dirtier and more dangerous place. I'm sure you are proud that it's out of your sight, and out of your mind. But the rest of us know what's really going on.

Yes, I do. And I know that Clinton and Gore were NOT "weak" on the issue, they were strong supporters of NAFTA. They actively promoted it, and Gore's debate of Ross Perot was what got NAFTA passed.

So when liberals "forget" history, like they often do, and want to blame conservatives for NAFTA, I know that's crap. Your liberal heroes Clinton and Gore were right there getting NAFTA passed too. And I don't see Obama pushing for it's repeal.

You need to stop relying on the lying, draft dodging Rush Limbaug and learn facts.

75.79% of Republicans voted FOR NAFTA. 41.08% of Democrats voted for NAFTA.

You are very ignorant...a self made idiot.

No. You need to stop ignoring the historical fact that your "elder statesman" Bill "Slick Willie" Clinton signed NAFTA into law, telling Democrats who voted against NAFTA that they were just wrong. If Clinton would have vetoed NAFTA, it would have been dead, because there weren't enough votes in congress to overturn a veto. You may be able to fool yourself and your ignorant and weak-minded cohorts, but you cannot fool me.
