It was created by Republicans.

I don't need to read modern retrospective articles and revisionist history about NAFTA, I was there, and fully aware of what was going on back then. And there is lots of stuff on the internet that was written BACK IN THE DAY that proves NAFTA would have NEVER passed if Clinton and Gore hadn't pushed so hard to GET it passed. You finally admitted that Clinton signed NAFTA and made it law, and that must have really hurt! You've taken that first step! Good job!

Not the governments job huh? So you think most people are educated enough to ferret out any and all environmental issues. YGBSM!! You're a lunatic, and definitely not one who has a grasp of the issues, nor the education to make a determination with respect to getting things done right.
I know I don't have all the technical knowledge to do so on every level, you OTOH think you do but in fact are simply an imposter, a slight of hand actor, a quack, and a piss poor one at that. But then you're just a kid too with no experience or real world knowledge of how things operate and how to change them, huh sonny?!?!?!
I sit here and hang my head in despair as I feel like I am communicating with an old oak tree!!! YES Mr. Haney, its the public's responsibility to insure that the environment is not compromised. The government's responsibility is to serve, enforce, and defend the rights of others. NOW...... Who on the end of this discussion an overweight and bloated maggot! It's not this human in OK.

Did I ever deny that? I know the history of NAFTA and am fine with it. You're in denial, and I just like to point out to you your ignorance.

But fact is, Democrats are always coming in and cleaning up after Republicans, and you're just mad that you don't agree with the Republican-created NAFTA.

You SHOULD hang your head in despair sonny. At least you now admit and acknowledge the government is better positioned to address these issues than everyday John Q. Public, and you!

Bloated maggot, you must be looking at a pic of your favorite unshorn sheep (girlfriend) dressed in her Sunday go meeting best & a ribbon around her neck - Bahhhhhh... BaHHHHHHHhhh... Must be an Oklahoma thing.

I'm still waiting for a few potential solutions from you instead of your usual idiocy. Come on, nut up sonny, put up or shut up, give us a few potential solutions for a change. And while you're at it, how those solutions translate into lowering unemployment in NM.

If you are "fine" with it, then why did you even bring it up? Here's a news flash for you, I didn't vote for EITHER Bush or Clinton, because they BOTH supported NAFTA and the "New World Order", and I think both NAFTA and the "New World Order" are traitorous. Gore and Clinton working so hard to get NAFTA passed makes them both traitors in my book. I voted third party that year, and I never voted for Clinton or Gore.

Pipelines. Duh.

(Hint, we in New Mexico have send COAL to other places in pipelines..so I think we can handle natural gas.)

The reason New Mexico is falling behind on natural gas while other natural gas states prosper is...drum roll please...because it COSTS MORE to produce natural gas in New Mexico due to over-regulation.

There you have it. End of debate.

Coal leads the way in pollutants. As a by product, coal ash is much worse than smoking unfiltered cigarettes. Much worse.

You have to have everything spelled out.

I brought it up because you ignorantly, with your kneejerking, cry "liberal" about anything you don't like. I was just showing you that you were wrong about NAFTA. ofcourse, you're still too dumb to get it.

Wellhead deliverability, not pipeline deliverability, you MORON. The gas wells in NM have long term reserves, but very low daily production compared to other areas. Minimal cash flow......

Incorrect. Modern clean coal tech has taken care of that. And coal is one of the safest energy products to transport. Liberals need to quit living in the past.

You brought it up in another one of your knee-jerk attempts to blame everything on Republicans. You apparently forgot that your "elder statesman" Bill Clinton, and the Democratic majority in congress at the time, were fully responsible for getting NAFTA passed. AND, your future presidential hopeful, Hillary Clinton, was a vocal supporter of NAFTA too. So are you happy with NAFTA or not? That's what really matters, because if you supported it, you are hypocritical for bashing Republicans for it, they should be your heroes, and if you were against NAFTA, your leaders sold you out. You lose either way.

bald face lie.

And every effort to implement "clean coal" mitigations are opposed by those burning it.

Sorry, but that doesn't fly, which makes YOU the moron. After New Mexico passed it's over-regulation called the New Mexico "Pit" Rule, natural gas companies were able to move over the state line into Colorado and Texas, and drill UNDER New Mexico, and bring in gas profitably. Tell us how the natural gas knew to flow so much faster from wellheads located across state lines?

Since I don't listen to Rush Limbaugh, I wouldn't know. But you must, if you've heard him talk about the New World Order.

You really are ignorant of political history. Were you even alive when George H.W. Bush was president?

"Clearly, no longer can a dictator count on East-West confrontation to stymie concerted United Nations action against aggression. A new partnership of nations has begun. And we stand today at a unique and extraordinary moment. The crisis in the Persian Gulf, as grave as it is, also offers a rare opportunity to move toward an historic period of cooperation. Out of these troubled times, our fifth objective a new world order can emerge: a new era, freer from the threat of terror, stronger in the pursuit of justice, and more secure in the quest for peace. An era in which the nations of the world, east and west, north and south, can prosper and live in harmony." George H.W. Bush, Speech to joint session of Congress (11 September 1990), as quoted in Encyclopedia of Leadership (2004) by George R. Goethals, Georgia Jones Sorenson, and James MacGregor Burns, p. 1776 and Confrontation in the Gulf; Transcript of President's Address to Joint Session of Congress The New York Times. September 12, 1990.

And you are wrong again! Clean coal tech is NOT opposed by those burning it for NEW installations. Retrofitting old plants not designed for clean coal is prohibitively expensive. Forcing those expenses upon industry is wrong, like changing the rules in the middle of the game. Government doesn't force people to replace the engines in their old cars with new, more fuel efficient and cleaner burning ones every couple years, because we know that fewer and fewer old cars are on the road every year. Building new clean burning coal installations is the best way to get the old ones put out of service. You liberals REALLY have to quit living in the past, and look to the future!
