Here is more proof of Susana Martinez's prejudice, arrogance and stupidity.

For those who think words have only one definition...prejudice means - an opinion held in disregard of facts that contradict it; bias.

"the state Film Office issued a report on Tuesday that said film and TV production in New Mexico generated about $1.5 billion in economic output from mid-2009 through earlier this year. The industry received about $239 million in tax rebates during that time. Gov. Susana Martinez isn't proposing changes to the film incentives" -

Anyone remember she was against the film incentives. She sought legislation to cap the tax break? I mean seriously does anyone even remember how she...well here this will help some of you to remember:

So we all know she did a serious flip-flop on this issue and further this shows how foolish she was in her position and why...I believe this had something to do with it.

Anyone remember the movie with Robert Downey Jr shot in Las Cruces? "Due Date"??? Well they shut down the highway that Ms. Martinez used to get to work. It ran right outside her home residence straight to the Dona Ana District Attorney's Office so she was pissed off and obviously dreaded her trip to work and just like anyone else who goes postal hated every filmmaker that ever existed. So then she gets in a position to get her revenge because that's one of her trademarks. She's truly spiteful and so she sets out to get payback on the film industry and well the rest is history.

Then TV shows like Breaking Bad not only bring productions to New Mexico these shows were so popular that it brought in more tourism with people, fans, looking to visit sets. So the state benefited outlandishly and that's when she flipped. When she saw how Breaking Bad was a media giant and at that point she realized how stupid she was being and changed course.

Now her supporters will say that I have no proof of what I'm talking about, that what I've posted is mere presumption...well the evidence speaks for itself.

Shortly after that national media attention:

"But Martinez changed her tune over the weekend."

Changed her tune over the weekend? HAHA look at the dates of the articles. That's some serious flip-flopping.

Now let's consider how vain she is...Of course she backs it now because she realized as Governor she gets to meet and greet every A-List star who goes to New Mexico for a project. She gets to tour the production sets. She's in. She gets great photo-ops and more media attention which is what she craves.

She's all about fame and fortune with no concern for the common man.
