Now, tell us why, in a state boasting a huge resource of natural gas, people here are going without heat in a killer freeze. Why are there no reserves set aside for just such an emergency? It couldn't be, could it, that New Mexico politicians have placed profits ahead of people, could it? Nah, not here! Do you remember what happens to slum lords who don't provide heat for their tenants? I hope somebody gets his or her pants sued off! You're putting medically fragile, elderly and very young people in danger for the big KACHING! Pure evil. And, if they can't bring their pets, many won't come to shelters. I wouldn't.
Please report to "The Weekly Alibi" when your immigration status is checked as you are being arrested! I want to see this happen! Welcome to the Brave, New World! Now, shut up and spread 'em! Martinez? We'd better check her back and see if it's wet!
I'm fifty miles away, without a car, in a county that thinks "bus" has something to do with school integration! And what happened a few weeks ago, when the temps dropped to minus three? Did they pay people three cents an ounce to eat yogurt? No! They closed the SHOP! HA! 'course, it wasn't minus three until the middle of the night, but still! It's bait and switch! Speaking of bait, do they have sushi flavored frozen yogurts? mmmmmmm octopus! It's cold and gonna get colder. I'm just havin some fun. sue me. good thing I have yogurt in the fridge; y'all gave me the cravies. baaaad.
before you go to bed? And HOW did you manage that picture! Kewl!
Contrary to popular belief, poor folks are not meaner than rich folks. We may not look as pretty or smell as good, but we may love our kids more, since we actually raise them ourselves, instead of hiring some kid to do it. Families with annual incomes below $15,000 per year are more than 25 times more likely than families with annual income above $30,000 to be REPORTED for abuse or neglect. Social scientists question previous interpretations of reports. Poor families have frequent contact with reporting agencies: social workers, police, clinics, etc. Neighbors and other family members will "rat you out," in revenge for some grudge, by filing an anonymous "report" of abuse, putting you under investigation. You can lose your kids over unsubstantiated gossip! Affluent families more often get a "pass" by those who are more suspicious of the poor (but who can blame them, given the frequent publication of stereotypes, not based on science, but on fear.) Wealthy people tend to live in single family homes: more distance and less sound than crowded, multi-family structures, where abuse can be heard more easily. Wealthy people have connections and "reputations;" the poor do not. And we are forced to live in nasty backwaters, surrounded by danger; our kids get hurt more, just trying to get to school, than the rich kids do, and the parents get blamed.

As hard as it may be to be a 2nd class citizen with scarce value beyond being a sexual object, with the nagging and near subconscious worry in the back of my mind that I could be raped every minute, I'm grateful I do not always be compelled to compare myself with predatory men and feel myself to be wanting. Here's to liberation from gender roles for all.
Seventeen THOUSAND people are homeless at least part of the year in New Mexico. This program will house a whole 75
This is window dressing and a pay check for the admins of the program. Period.
He's not a serial killer, but an accused, mass murderer, but he's in custody in Tuscon.
A serial killer with a Biblical name will be caught, either in California or in a Southern state.
