I see Ernest throw'ies (sp?) in the downtown area. They are always where you don't expect them to be. I'm in agreement with Ernest as to why he painted the "eyesore Anasazi", as we call it. The only crime here is that the City allowed the building to be built in the first place! Buildings of this height and structure should not be allowed in the downtown area. I think Ernest spoke for all of us. It's ugly and they need to do something about it. I was not surprised Ernest was arrested. He is an exceptional artist and all exceptional artist bring attention one way or another. Thanks Ernest for making me smile, it's something we can all use right now.
Remember folks... if they ban drinking at all age venues anywhere in Bernalillo County, then they have to ban drinking at the Journal Pavilion and the Isotopes games too!!
There must be a lot of predatory situations at these places....
That's the trump card... play it well. ;-)
Richard Wexler is also wanting to impeach Bush and Cheney during their remaining days in office. If we can't impeach them while they are in office, let's hold them accountable for war crimes and put them on trial as U.S. citizens when they come out of office. And I feel Larry Silverstein needs to be their cell mate!
The real issues here are what this administration has done to all of us and how they are still doing things to us in plain sight. My eyes were opened when I watched a movie called Loose Change about the bombings of 9/11. For me I had always felt that our own government had something to do with 9/11, I just did not know the magnitude of their involvement until I watched the movie. Watching the news on that fateful day in September I thought everything about the twin towers coming down looked like a controlled demolition. But, like all of us we were told to see something different. The supposed plane that hit the Pentagon - I always wondered where all the plane parts were and why there was no luggage or seats scatted around and where was the tail section, etc... the movie answered these questions and a lot more I had. I had not spoken a word about my thoughts to anyone about 9/11 until I watched Loose Change this year. I cry sometimes for the people who lost their lives that day for nothing! They pulled off 9/11 with military ease to convince the American public the need for war. They needed something monumental like Pearl Harbor to happen to justify the need for the war machine. The American public was just collateral damage to them and we still are. I watched an interview with Cheney about the war and the news lady asked him about all the American lives lost in the war in Iraq and all he said was "so".
My reference to Larry Silverstein, well he owned the World Trade Centers and they were ladened with asbestos and it needed to be removed, so he was more than willing to let them use his buildings for their evil deed. This way he could rid himself of the burden and cost of removal and collect on the insurance money, which he did.
The Patriot Act was brought about by a paranoid president under the pretext to keep an eye on terrorist, but in reality it's to spy on all of us. This Act needs to be abolished because the only terrorist there are are already here and have been here for years, if you get my drift.
The U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and any statue, to be valid must be in agreement. It is impossible for a law which violates the Constitution to be valid. Lincoln said "Study the Constitution", "Let it be preached from the pulpit, proclaimed in legislatures and enforced in courts of justice." "The people are the masters of both Congress and courts, not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow men who pervert it!" Excuse me, but the Patriot Act is not in alignment with our Constitution!
Give up rights for the common good? Where the people fear the government you have tyranny; where the government fears the people, you have liberty.
Bush and Cheney need to be brought to justice along with everyone involved in this cover-up before they hide in Dubi out of our reach.
