Perhaps we should think about building some new and sustainable industries for the future, so the folks from the auto, mining, wall street and homebuilding industries can have a job in say the next 12-18 months. In case you are wondering, things have changed and we need to change with them. It does no good to try and retain the past, when it has gone. As a country, we need to stop meddling in other country's affairs and spend the $ on building new industries here. Yes, we will always have to participate when called, but lets stop this insane war culture and get down to putting people to work. How about a $150 billion fund to rebuild our infastructure? Now that would put a couple of million folks to work for some years. Those poor folks fromn the auto and homebuilding industries should be right at home-eh??

The last thing new mexico needs is more california Prune pickers telling telling them what don't work in california. New Mexico has always cowboyed up to its problems without Prune picker dictating a way of life that wont work. Once New Mexico gets rid of all the illegals like Richardson (Big fking joke) they will recover just fine. Why you think its the land of enchantment???

I know just what Silver City needs. I am going to be rich beyond my wildest dreams. I am planning to open a stomach pumping station on all four corners of this town. Anyone who has any doubts, just eat at ANY restaurant here in Silver City and I am confident you will see a value in my new business scheme.
