Stimulus funds saving N.M. jobs

Mrs. D: And I forgot the biggy: dconservatives' tax cuts for the wealthiest. Their ethics are "Remember the grandkids...except those instances when we conveniently want to forget them!"  (Oct 13, 2009 | post #19)

Stimulus funds saving N.M. jobs

Mrs. D: So how many here moaned and groaned about "The Future Generations!!! " when the past administration said debt doesn't matter, got us into Iraq, and created the most expensive piece of legislation ever: Medicare Part D? All the conservative whining about fiscal responsibility is really just disgruntled obstructionism. If it wasn't "the deficit" it would be something else. Besides, conservative 'free market' philosophy brought all this on, so conservatives are hardly in a position to be criticizing what liberals have to do to fix their messes! News flash for the wingnuts: We've caught on that you complain just for the sake of complaining. Enough already.  (Oct 13, 2009 | post #18)

Seniors find creative joy through art

Creating an artistic idea and and crafting its expression should be a part of everyone's day.  (Oct 13, 2009 | post #1)

CLIMATE CHANGE: Campaign targets Bingaman on carbon dioxide

This idea is straight out of the flat earth and blood-letting approach to science. Why are you writing an article about it?  (Oct 13, 2009 | post #1)

Doctor pushes for a nation with universal health care

Mrs. D: I hope this interview goes viral and reaches well beyond a New Mexico audience!  (Oct 12, 2009 | post #8)

Appeals decision to be used in case against Fierro

"There's no way they'd be prosecuting this if my client wasn't a state police officer at the time." That is exactly right. He had a extraordinary responsibility that night and apparently failed to fulfill it. Some professions are never "off duty" and police are one of them.  (Oct 8, 2009 | post #2)

Off-site tribal casinos get second look

This is a bad idea in that an off-site casino benefits very few and encourages more people to gamble away money that is needed elsewhere. What the Jemez people and other tribes around the country do on their land is their business but this is not on their land and that makes it our business. New Mexico citizens rank near the bottom of earned income and they don't need anyone else trying to take badly needed funds away.  (Oct 4, 2009 | post #1)

League of extraordinary New Mexicans

Mrs. D: Is there any topic or story on this board that doesn't degenerate into some kind of brawl? Sheesh.  (Oct 3, 2009 | post #6)

Mineral rights a headache for Santa Fe Opera

Mrs D: Just wait a minute! Here's an excerpt from a letter I received concerning this issue last week: "...The Las Vegas Basin encompasses all of Mora County, much of San Miguel County, and part of Colfax County. The portion of the Las Vegas Basin that runs along Highway 518 just north of Las Vegas and into Mora is part of our groundwater recharge zone for the whole Las Vegas Basin. And that recharge zone continues north, along the eastern slopes of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. This part of the mountains provides the source waters for the Gallinas River, Mora River, Ocate Creek, Coyote Creek, Sapellver, Gallinas River, and more. This whole area is at risk of environmental devastation by the oil and gas drilling industry, which is exempt from the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Safe Drinking Water Act, The Community Right to Know Act, and others.." The question of generation of any jobs is unknowable at this point. Does anyone really believe that an opera outfit located in Santa Fe, New Mexico couldn't possibly have imagined that this situation would generate a lot of controversy in the county in which it would occur?  (Oct 2, 2009 | post #7)

Domestic partnerships back on agenda

Mrs. D: My thoughts exactly. BTW, is there *any* other legal, contractual instance but marriage in which clergy participate? When you think about it, that is very odd. Think if the clergy were necessary in order to close on a house, for instance.  (Sep 30, 2009 | post #26)

Stain or saint? Images catch Las Trampas residents by sur...

Mrs. D: I concur. Maybe she'll appear on more of the other countless, historic, old structures in NM in danger of demolition by neglect.  (Sep 23, 2009 | post #26)

Task force plots anti-DWI strategies

I don't believe increasing the cost of booze is going to cure the problem. Here in San Miguel County where money is tight there are huge numbers of beer cans and booze bottles along the roadway. The problem is complex; the solution is going to be complex and must address the availability and accessibility of liquor, and penalties for overuse. But nothing is going to have an effect until the social roots of the problem are addressed. Young people see drinking as attainment of adulthood among their peers. Ads and television promote pictures of laughing, dancing, sexy party-goers all drinking. Escapism through alcohol is far too common. The problems are not just with the drinker but also with the society that condones the situation.  (Sep 18, 2009 | post #12)

Bingaman: Baucus proposal not perfect

Mrs. D: The free market? The one that essentially went belly up a year ago? Good grief--there are many examples of free market failures. When are conservatives going to face the music when it comes to the realities and limitations of the the 'free market?' I think you pretty obviously gave yourself away--it appears you want to deny quality, affordable health care to the many because of a few bad apples, while conveniently ignoring the excesses and rip offs committed by the corporate interests. Nice priorities.  (Sep 17, 2009 | post #18)
