Looks like some people get ALL their information from the Huffington Post and Moveon.org . You lefties are all still smarting from the last election. Well too f-ing bad. I got news for you, it's gonna get a lot worse for you. We are already entering a double dip recession and Odumbo has little chance of being elected to a second term. Dems and libs/progressives have had their day and it's OVER. You had a whole term of having a supermajority and you accomplished NOTHING except passing Obamacare...something the majority of the American public OPPOSED. You don't like Martinez....Tough toenails. She won and she's in, just like Odumbo. She was elected by the majority of the voters. She was elected to turn things around and that is EXACTLY what she is doing.
You don;t like big business and big oil and big corporations...also tough toenails. This country runs on capitalism. You don't like that, move to Cuba or some other non-capitalist society.

I think you need to read the Geneva Conventions. In addition, what you say is somewhat self-contradictory. If "everything" has a corporate personae, what does this include? Families? Persons? However, what you say opens the floor for a broader and necessary discussion.

What you say about everything having a corporate personae should motivate people to think about the nature of corporatism - what it is, what it does, and what the effects are. The recent Supreme Court ruling regarding Citizens United should be a wake-up call to everyone questioning whether corporations are individuals. Here, a reading of the literature on the contract state - Hobbes and Rousseau, to be quite precise - is in order. Also, you may consider the deep meaning of "organic state". This should be background reading to Mussolini's "The Doctrine of Fascism" and related works concerning "organic law" in post 1922 Italy. Then, go on to comparing modern states that have evolved from a capitalist model to the modern corporatist one, based on Italian fascism. Herein, I think you will have enough material to qualify or enhance your statements.

No YOU stated that New Mexicans wouldn't be working at UP. Not me.
Somyou got that "hate Texas" envy thing going full force huh?
Also got theat liberal corporate hatred goign full force. No corporations = NO JOBS. Unless you prefer to pick pecans out in the fields. I trust UP more than I trust New Mexicans politicians to spend tax money wisely. Gasoline is going to go up because Obama hates big oil and wants everyone to drive electric cars. He could drop the price very quickly by opening up oil drilling. But nooooooo....he's got to kiss up to the far left eco-loonies that elected him. So we pay big money for gas because of his "green" agenda. Not becasue corporations "write off" gas as an expense. Which they are perfectly legal in doing BTW.
Repeating ignorance and sucking up to Corporations would make you seem less than informed, good luck with your hate thing. Too bad you voted for the losers McCain and Palin, you seem to feel bad about that choice you made. Are you a rightwing-nut, you seem to feel the world is plotting against you and your politics? Did the Gas Co. cut off your Gas coming from Texas during the worst weather in 30 years? Since they write off fuel expenses why does UP need to pay no Taxes?

Yep...let's drive ALL the businesses and jobs they create OUT of New Mexico by taxing the hell out of them. Then we can give that tax money to the wonderful school teachers who pass illiterates and the the slugs on welfare that only know how to make illigitimate kids that we have to support. Wonderful idea!!!!
So much for free markets. Anyway, companies care more about workforce than taxes

You're absolutely right, except that I'd say, "hope you have bad luck with your hate thing." This reactionary claptrap is really getting old, and would be nice if some big UFO would spirit these cretins away to some place like.. well, how about some hot as hell planet like Mercury, where their hate would have the same temperature?

Ahhh...now we see the new card being used by the left. When the "race card" got all worn out and old and unuseable, the left manufactured a new card...the "hate card". They whip it out every time they lose a discussion. Which is VERY often lately. And they like to go back in history too. Got that time machine going full force. The Obamanation is nothing to be proud of voting for. They are about as anti-American as you can find. LOL...and of course, out comes the amateur psychiatry attempts. WOW! You are pulling out all the stops. I must have really hit the nail on the head.
And again with the "hate Texas' thing. You've used up almost your whole aresenal of far left attacks. What's left?? Hmmm...well there's Nazi and redneck. You haven't used those yet. Of course, neither one would be correct. Nazis were socialists, that's YOU, not me. And I've never even lived in the South. So that's out. But I'm sure that won't stop you from using them.

Look Homer, this bil was approved by BOTH parties. Even if it brings only a ferw jobs to New Mexico, it'[s certainly better than none. And all those taxes we won't be getting will just force the politicans to be more careful about how they spend our tax money. Those are all GOOD things. Unless maybe you has plans on getting your hands on some of that tax money for your own interests. Like public aid or handouts from the government. Sorry pal...that AIN'T gonna happen. Go get a frigging job and EARN some money. Go work at the UP location and quitchurbitchin.

I'd feel sorry for you if you weren't so ignorant of facts but you choose to be that way. You make up alleged attacks and play the 'victim' in online discussions. Good luck with your hatred of the President, you are right there with Al-Qaeda, Gadafi, and others on the short end. Take a break from blaming people who don't agree with you, you are out-numbered. Maybe a class in economics. Spelling perhaps?
In a few days you will complain again about 'liberals' and 'left-leaning' people so keep up the consistency.
