er... Nostradamas, thanks for the prediction re: smirks. I was referencing a smartass- looking guy pictured, blowing into our little cowtown from DC to straighten us out.
If you don't consider law-enforcement, city government, local judiciary and private-business as your "partners" in this city, then you are perhaps an iconoclast unable to fit in.
This DOJ investigation is still a stunt. Our City has a significant, NO, serious drug problem; mostly heroin now. Addicts are frantic and mobile. That's the nature of heroin and meth, BTW. Name one confrontation with APD that didn't involve amped-up users or bi-polars whose condition is related to drug-use. I'm hopeful that APD and the other agencies will continue to protect innocent and weaker folks that addicts will prey on.
I've read the published blotter reports that I can, as a citizen. Looks like a publicity stunt to me. DOJ guy on Demand looked like he was a smirker. Was Obama elected and loan-guaranteed as a special prosecution by feds to stroke lulac (LULAC, if you couldn"t figure it out.) to spank our Police Dept.. .
The feds won't get any cooperation out of me if they ask. The local Cops are my team-mates. I'm a citizen and we are in this together against criminal activity. LULAC is not my friend, nor are they friends of most Hispanics. Most of us are victims, somehow - name it
Voting on Election Day is a tradition. Wasn't it called Armistice Day way back when? It's been decades since I learned something new and longer since I forgot everything.
Marisa, I don't hold you responsible for Sandoval County political shenanigans but I do hold you responsible for your words written in your response to my complaint.
PB, good attitude.
Marisa, you "excused" their performance during this election cycle. Your only admonition was to try to fix it next time. Pardon me for not feeling all warm/fuzzy for this un-contrite admission of a cluster-f### General Election.
I'm not in a band, though I was a professional musician when I wus young n' pretty. The drummer didn't wear a shirt, so you can imagine the nature of the band. Think Freebird.
We know exactly what happened, Marisa and Pleiades. There is no need for an investigation. I charge both of you with partisan disengenuous excuses. Don't tell me we'll fix it next time. That's insulting. Count on me and my band to go after the partisans who did this.
Me and my ghost wife went to the normal voting place and it wasn't active. We raced home to look at the paper. There were five voting places for a city of roughly 90,000 citizens. Each had three printers. Bernalillo had four polling places at 1/10th the population, though heavily democrat. I planned ahead and expected to vote in 30 minutes. The store had to open, so I left my place in line after awhile. I went back at 3:00 and then 6:00, after work. My friend waited until 10:00pm and gave up.
Democrat machine got to the county clerk as she went out the door; probably bribed her (consider the Bahamas). That's the way things happen here in New Mexico. Rio Rancho is a strong Conservative area and they targeted us. What they don't know is that we will retaliate. I understand that corruption will exist in certain enclaves in democrat controlled little towns up north, but when they go right after us in the heart-land, that starts a war. The political cycle is longer than four years. I promise that your duly elected dems will receive abuse and not a bit of cooperation in the years to come. When you poison wells....
OK, so you are abandoning your statement that BO was a "lawyer by profession". Thank-you, that's all that I asked. The rest of your comments were fluff to disguise your original mis-statement. Actually I have to give you credit; most people don't admit they mis-spoke.
Secession is obviously a symbolic gesture and most States weighed in, FWIW. This Country is nearly at a civil war. So much for the Nobel Peace Prize.
I was a disenfranchised voter in Rio Rancho, and I promise that I'm one angry citizen. There are thousands here, in the same frame of mind. I looked forward to voting this election more than any other, and we blame the Democratic machine. They even managed to vote in another Dem to County Clerk for Sandoval County, replacing the corrupt previous mannequin, mainly because they suppressed the RR vote.
And finally. BO is not the intellect you think he is. I see nothing but bumper stickers when he speaks. And he fakes this 'tude that, if you disagree with his policies, then you are against everything good in the World. his emperor complex is like a Cardinal personality trait in Psychology circles.
Is the President actually a lawyer by profession??? Yes, he went to the Harvard Law School, but did he establish a practice or engage in taking legal cases. We know he was a "community agitator" and affiliated with the corrupt group Acorn, but that's hardly a professional career. Just askin'
Our State has a budget crisis just like many others do. Shopping on-line takes valuable gross receipts taxes from the States' coffers, because the State is unable to legally collect them. Of course, this puts local businesses at a disadvantage too, even if they are willing or able to match prices with the on-line vultures due to the locals' being required to collect the 7% tax. Don't be surprised if we are up to 10% in a few years. I predicted the Bay Area in CA would be there. That was five years ago and yes, they are there.
