Listen to your effing hateful attitude. That's what people here notice first. There will be a revolution. We'll rise up against your lazy useless azzes. Nobody asked you to come here with your money. The money is most likely illegal and therefore you should off yourselves.
What you don't understand Junior is that the revolution has already started several years ago. Not quite the revolution that you speak about but a revolution of civilized persons ever so slowly moving in on what you think is your turf. This revolution will not take the form that is so prevalent here in southern New Mexico. There will be no street brawls between brainless drunken locals and the well off newcomers. No fighting after a night drinking Bud Light till sunrise. This revolution is taking place right in front of your nose but you do not have the education to see it. You do feel it though. You are feeling the pressure and are not equipped mentally to deal with it. You lash out because that is truly all you have to offer.

You complain about tourists and new residents with money out of sheer jealousy. This is most certainly understood. Society consists of those who have, and those who have not. You have had many years to make your community into something to be proud of but you have failed miserably. Now it will be up to "outsiders" to bring law, order, and reality to this town with such potential. Sit back and watch because you truly have no control over what is slowly happening here. If you think that the local town board is in charge of the future of the town, think again. Mere puppets. The real movers and shakers in your town are making plans and deals at places that you cannot afford to frequent.

If you are feeling the pressure of the new breed, you need to make a decision. Are you going to continue with your fruitless resistance to what is coming, or are you going to pack up and leave while you can still make some money. Your world is changing before your eyes, with or without your blessing. The slow takeover cannot be stopped by local cavemen.

Gerald, you should seriously visit a physician to get off the hallucinagens you're apparently on. Outsiders have long since held office here and other positions that have helped destroy what this town had to offer. Outsiders have brought with them their hatred for mankind and continue to spread it daily. While this used to be a small town, it is now a small city and is still growing in all the wrong directions. Civilized persons moving here ey? I don't refer to felons as civilized. I know you are not one of the educated and wealthy you write about, this is visibly apparent in your writing. I am willing to say that not all outsiders have been and are bad, but they are the very cause this town has changed into such an ugly place to live. I have always said, "This place would be fabulous without the ugly people."

Gerald, you are one of the ugly people I refer too. I'm sure you're feeling extremely defensive right now so fire away uneducated one! Locals such as myself know where we've been, what this place was like in the good ole days, and where outsiders such as yourself will end up.

But it's that Gray fella they need to get rid of, He's so far up Nora's backside its a wonder he can even see. You see Mr. Gray this looks bad on you too, Mr. Interim Marshal, what a joke your whole department is. Good luck finding another loser to fill you vacant spot. O hey maybe try for vega or valenzuela they would fit right in with you.
Yea, they'd fit right in if there was room cuz that's where they would both be right up Barraza's backside! LMAO! Too funny!

Wow! It seems like a whole bunch of people feel the same way I do about this guy. It is amazing that such an arrogant little cock would be given any authority at all, much less last as long as he has.
He was just a part ime security guard at Zia that watched the girls come and go while he acted tough. His other part time job was chasing women in various offices around town.
The only place that I ever saw the guy he was either drinking a beer and acting tough at Palacio's or eating a donut and watching young girls.
Good riddance. Look for this jerk in another uniform soon. He isnt qualified to do any other type of work and will fit right in with most of these law organizations that hire the deadwood that is unsuitable for upscale communities like Mesilla.
You must of have been with him, if you know he was eating a doughnut and watching young girls. Maybe you bought him a beer at Palacio's. You don't have anything better to do than keep an eye on him. You are jealous because you probably want to be the next jerk in uniform.

I knew Joe when I was in college, he was a complete dirt bag, pulling strings with his buddies to get away with petty infringements back even then. He's an idiot that used his badge and fucked up life in his little trailer home to be what makes people look poorly upon law enforcement... Hope you read this Joe.. Hope you get a great job at Subway.
