CLEAN GONE


New Mexico Governor Grisham has certainly put our money where her mouth is with her clean energy speech to the DNC at last night's presidential convention.

Given all the companies she's put out of business with her lockdown orders there's a lot less energy being used these days, clean or otherwise.

D STANDS FOR DICTATOR


I'm not surprised that New Mexico Governor Grisham has been handed the power to fine at will by this state's Supreme Court, after all, that august body is composed of four Democrats and one RINO.

However, I used to think that the D. behind our politicians name stood for Democrat. Now I know it stands for Dictator.

ALBUQUERQUE'S HATEFUL BUSINESS ENVIRONMENT


I recently saw an Albuquerque, New Mexico TV report of how several Wells Park neighborhood businesses sent a letter to 'progressive' Mayor Tim Keller threatening to sue the city if the area wasn't cleaned up. I can see where their frustration comes from, dirty sidewalks used as camping grounds and alleys as bathrooms doesn't make for a customer-beckoning experience. Unfortunately, Albuquerque City Councilor Isaac Benton who supposedly represents that part of town is as useless as a tack in a balloon factory and has his eyes set on closing businesses rather than helping them out.

But what bothered me was the sarcastic reply the businesses received from the city, not offering to help but saying they should get behind Keller's dubious homeless housing project. They even called their threat a frivolous lawsuit.

I thought liberalism was bad but progressivism is turning out to be even worse. If Keller's administration is going to treat businesses, which are the lifeblood of this community, in such a cavalier manner I can't imagine what they think of the private citizens here. They must have a daily laugh at our expense.

It's discouraging watching Keller's cynical and haughty administration along with the Democrats on the City Council working to turn Albuquerque into a well-decorated pig sty.

THE CORONA VIRUS FLIMFLAMMING OF NEW MEXICO


As the Liberal Media here in New Mexico continues to scare the population in regards to the corona virus pandemic, may I put it in a less ominous perspective:

New Mexico had 9,723 confirmed cases of corona virus as of today (6/14/2020). We have a population of about 2,096,640. That's about 0.5% of the population that have contracted this disease. (And a good percentage of these have come from the Navajo Nation, not the state at large.)

We have had 435 deaths due to the virus - deathwise that's about 0.023% of the population.

In contrast, using the 2017 statistics from the CDC on New Mexico, yearly, we have had over 3,407 heart disease-related deaths (1.7%); 3,620 deaths from cancer; 878 deaths from strokes; 493 drug overdose deaths; and 491 have died by suicide.

Many of the corona virus deaths in New Mexico were from elderly residents and patients in nursing and retirement homes. Our Governor, Michelle Lujan Grisham, should have immediately locked those down because even at the outset, the aged population was shown to be at risk. But she spent her time getting her hair done, buying jewelry, and sharpening her anti-Trump rhetoric. (Some have referred to this as the Wuhan Flu, perhaps we should have called it the Lujan Flu here in the Land of Enchantment.)

Statistically, though, I'd say corona virus and death by the corona virus are seriously over-rated.

THE GREEN DEAL NIGHTMARE


In watching the disastrous drop in oil and gas production in New Mexico, you can't help but notice the irony in it.

This past Democrat-controlled 'progressive' legislature shoved their version of a Green Deal down every New Mexicans' throat without proper debate or documented studies. The governor signed it in that same spirit.

But instead of being able to safely watch matters unfold from the comfort of retirement as future administrations wrestle with this revenue-destroying legislation, they are getting to deal with it today. They have been used to dealing with budgets engorged by oil and gas money, now they are tasting that future with deficits and low revenue and no spare money from anywhere else.

I'm sure their answer will be to raise every tax and fee they can find or invent and our poverty-plagued New Mexico will become even poorer. Sadly, their prayers for an oil-free future have been answered in the most perverse way possible. I hope everyone enjoys and can pay for the fruits of their labor.

This is their baby all growed up.

YESTERDAY


--- with sincerest apologies to John Lennon and Paul McCartney ---

Yesterday
All my troubles were more than six feet away
We were completely coronavirus free
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Suddenly
I can't go out like I used to do
There's a stay-at-home order over me
Oh, yesterday came suddenly

Why we have to wear face masks
I don't know, they wouldn't say
I wish I could scratch my nose
Now I long for yesterday

Yesterday
Shopping was such an easy chore last fall
Now I need a place to store it all
Oh, I believe in yesterday

Why we have to wear face masks
I don't know, they wouldn't say
I wish I could scratch my nose
Now I long for yesterday

Yesterday
Shopping was such an easy chore last fall
Now I need a place to store it all
Oh, I believe in yesterday
